Let's be very clear on a couple of points. Firstly, there is absolutely no moral equivalency between drawing funny pictures of the Moslem prophet Mohammed and slaughtering journalists for doing their job. Secondly, drawing, publishing or reproducing cartoons of Mohammed is not a hate crime; it is the unlawful reaction to such exhibition or publication that is the crime.
There is hope that this message has got through to the mainstream Muslim community in Britain, for yesterday's London 'demonstration' by the Moslem Action Forum was attended by barely 1,000 - the sort of figure that PETA or the flat-earthers get. They claimed to have a petition with 100,000 signatures, but didn't say how many were by different people.
These hard-line Islamists are utterly opposed to free speech and western democratic standards - and as the women were separated from the men, one wondered at the debate they must have held about whether to keep the women at home and only have 500 on the street or to allow the girls out (carefully segregated) to make better pictures.
I'm sorry if they hate our freedoms so much, but there it is. As the Moslem Mayor of Rotterdam said, if they don't like it, they can fuck off. And as our Prime Minister said, there is no room in the UK for Islamism.
