Britain’s Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, reassures the United Nations Assembly in this report from the BBC:
Foreign Secretary Jack Straw has said there is no fundamental difference between the Islamic world and the West. He told the United Nations Assembly, meeting in New York, that Arab peoples developed the mathematical foundations on which the digital world is based.
He said only “terrorists and the preachers of hate” wanted people “to believe that Islam and the West are fundamentally different”.
Theirs was a “philosophy of mistrust and despair”, which he rejected.
Here again Mr. Straw shows his adoption of historical revisionism, one based on a multiculturalism so saturated with extreme politcal correctness that it permeates the minds of our elite, despite Qur’anic evidence and Muhammadan tradition.
However, Mr Straw said poor economic prospects and stunted political freedoms had led to widespread disillusionment among young and talented Muslims.
And he said Arab nations were now behind in the technological revolution.
“The answer however does not lie in easy stereotypes about some clash of civilisations,” he added.
Thank you, Mr. Straw, for your opinions. But it does seem as if the cliches and easy stereotypes are coming from you, not those who oppose you.
