Now that Tony Blair and his hard line stance against terrorism has been removed because his stance sparked Muslim anger, the now UK pledges to work more closely with local communities to fight terrorism.

God forbid that we should take a hard line stance on those that want to kill us. But we sure don’t want to insult those that wish to impose Shari law on us all – do we?

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith told the final day of the ruling Labour Party conference in Bournemouth that she wanted to safeguard values of tolerance, fair play and community cooperation.

“The free expression of these values is what we wish to protect,” said Smith, who was thrust into the spotlight by terrorist attacks days after new Prime Minister Gordon Brown took office in June.

“And it’s because we share these values that we will seek consensus on new measures to counter the threat of terrorism. At the same time, we will do more to support communities as they build understanding and prevent extremism.”

Her comments came the day after one of her junior ministers suggested that a remark by Blair that “the rules of the game are changing,” heralding a clampdown after 2005 London bombings, was a mistake.

Tony McNulty also described the phrase “war on terror” as “crass”.

In the words of the gum commercial mouthed by a young Brit with a Brutish accent – “Such a dirty mouth!” Wash your mouth out with soap for saying that the struggle to safeguard your society is “crass’. Naughty. Naughty.

I mean, according to liberals, what creates terrorists is not their blind devotion to jihad – but a few simple words. But on the Continent – some Dutch are not buying it.

In a joint opinion piece in newspaper De Volkskrant, Party for Freedom (PVV) leader Geert Wilders and Ehsan Jami, founder of the Committee for ex-Muslims, warned yesterday against what they see as an attempt by Islam to conquer the world. They compare the Prophet Mohammed to Adolf Hitler.

Wilders and Jami suggest that a hushing-up culture reigns in the Netherlands on Islam. They criticise National Anti-terrorism Coordinator Tjibbe Joustra, who recently warned that radical statements about Islam could give the final push to individuals poised on the edge of violence.

“We consider that Joustra should catch terrorists instead of trying to muzzle politicians,” according to Wilders and Jami. “His remarks are inappropriate for this reason alone. But we also wonder whether what Joustra claims is actually true. (…) Does Joustra really think that religious maniacs who want to use violence to please Allah need Jami or Wilders as an extra spur to move into action?

Wilders and Jami refer to the 1960s and 1970s, when “Christianity and Jesus Christ were heavily insulted and criticised” in the Netherlands. (…) Did Christians then commit violence en masse? (…) Of course not. Such processes are unique to the Islamic ideology of hatred, violence and intolerance.”

Good men Wilders and Jami. At least some politicians are waking up to the fact that Islamism is a threat to Europe and needs to be confronted now – not later.
