Euro Islamophobia meets Google algorhythms

Like many of you I suppose, I pop over to the Brussels Journal from time to time to get a handle on the way the European intellectual right is thinking. However, the site's strident Islamophobia is a little too rich for my palette; for these Europeans, the Turks really are at the gates of Vienna and the guardians of the Eastern Mark are struggling to find a new Sobieski.

The effect is a little spoiled though by Google ads, which has picked up the high incidence of 'Muslim' and 'Islam' on the site and targets it with large display ads of pretty Aishas in headscarves seeking marriage. You'd need a heart of stone not to laugh.

I can't understand the hysteria which surrounds Islam and has done for centuries.
