The culture wars commence

"The Boycott Jihad is on"

So, the culture war commences. The Muslim Public Affairs Committee of the UK has weighed into the Danish cartoon "war" with some pretty chilling posturing for anyone concerned with integration within our society. Somewhat ironically it is through capitalism that this battle finds its first ground; but so be it. If you are opposed to a Sharia hegemony in Britain's laws and the way Western democracy is governed here is what you must not do: MPACUK

Visit this website and do the opposite. Show your support by emailing the paper ( or the Danish embassy (

Then there's the handy list of products (which is far too long to list here!) that we should buy to show our support for free speech, our opposition to a hegemony founded upon the dogma of Islam. If possible, when you can, buy the items on the list to help reduce any impact of islamofascist pressure. Law should define behaviour not morals.

I would like to think that we have drawn our metaphorical line in the sand. I note that a French newspaper has reprinted the cartoons as well. Good for them.

However the BBC coverage was shameful. I hope I am wrong, but I doubt any major Britsh newspaer will show the same courage.

I didn't object so much to the online coverage apart from the banal attempts to blur out the images. As Laban Tall rightly points out, they had no problem with Jerry Springer: the Opera being screened featuring all manner of blasphemy against Christianity.

I'm off up the pub now, and I'll make a serious effort to support Denmark's exports.
But seriously, this is a very small incident in a cultural clash likely to run for many years. I can't help wondering though, when all of the oil is gone and the West loses interest in the Middle East, will the fundamentalists either be ignored or stamped on? After all, there will be no need to pursue a middle way then.

They'll have to be stamped on, otherwise they'll just represent too much of a threat. Unless it's been dealt with by then anyway...

Thanks for reading; hope there'll be more to interest you in the next week or so.
