It’s encouraging to read from various accounts that Europeans are beginning to realize radical Islamists are indeed a threat to their way of life. Unfortunately, wanting to make the grand religion of multiculturalism work, they struggle to creatively incorporate the ever expanding contradictions of appeasement into a democratic context. Appeasement of course is tolerance, but radical fundamentalists should understand that, human nature being what it is, tolerance has a threshold. Remember in the Time Machine (the Rod Taylor Movie version, that is), where the pacifistic vegetative and extremely high tolerance abiding Elois, who, after all, allow themselves to be used as food for the underground-living Morlocks (an extremely tolerant gesture) finally rebel. Their tolerance threshold, as astoundingly high as it was, had been breached. Maybe we can get the movie played more in Europe.
