'They think they have won'

Patrick Sookhdeo says British Muslims believe thay have won the debate over the Danish cartoons because no paper in Britain published them.

Sookhdeo, a Christian convert with a PhD in Islamic studies, predicts that within the next decade parts of the UK will be ruled by Sharia law.
"The whole approach towards Muslim militants was based on appeasement. 7/7 proved that that approach does not work - yet it is still being followed. For example, there is a book, The Noble Koran: a New Rendering of its Meaning in English, which is openly available in Muslim bookshops.

"It calls for the killing of Jews and Christians, and it sets out a strategy for killing the infidels and for warfare against them. The Government has done nothing whatever to interfere with the sale of that book.

"Why not? Government ministers have promised to punish religious hatred, to criminalise the glorification of terrorism, yet they do nothing about this book, which blatantly does both.

As the death toll over the publication of the cartoons rises, Flemming Rose, the editor of Jyllands-Posten, the Danish paper that published the cartoons explains why he did it.

Rocky Mountain News editor John Temple finds that his readers are pleased that his paper decided to publish the cartoons, via Cori Dauber.
