The discussion seems to have started- for real

You gotta read this.

After many many months of mimbling on the topic of how severely western societies are going to be remoulded into Islamic ones, people seem to be on the verge of realizing that these are not whimsical airy fairy theories to be discussed between glasses of chardonnay. There are concrete outcomes when we allow a very small minority in Britain to determine the parameters of debate. Watching the hysterical over-reaction of the Muslim world to a few cartoons has to remind us that WE must keep our sense of proportion, and remind ourselves that we do have values that are important to us.
