In India's Daily Pioneer, Dina Nath Mishra makes an observation that I can't imagine appearing anywhere in the mainstream Western media, despite that it's truth can be verified by simple observation:
Islam is not past, it is very much alive and clicking all over the world. The number of its followers is next only to Christians. They are present as minority in almost all parts of the world. They are troublesome where in minority; they are tyrants where in majority.
Samizdata discusses a recent example of this phenomenon:
There is a strange article in the LA Times called The Governor's cold shoulder to Muslims, in which Shakeel Syed, the executive director of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California criticises state governor Arnold Schwarzenegger for refusing to meet with him. The title suggests this refusal amounts to cold shouldering 'Muslims' rather than just certain Muslims (i.e Shakeel Syed).
In reality, all Schwarzenegger did was attend a rally supporting Israel. Demanding he crawl before them apologetically is evidence of a congenital bully. The calls for an apology are meant to demean the governor, and make any other public official think twice about supporting the existence of Israel. Trouble now, as a minority, and giving every indication that as a majority they would be tyrannical.
