The Sleeping Giant
In response to the Open Letter to Mr Blair from the British Muslim Community comes an Open Letter to Tony Blair from the Silenced Majority:
So when the Muslim groups talk of Britain's policies being "ammunition to extremists," what they mean is that Britain must suspend all support for Israel and continue as before in the connivance with Arab and Muslim states for the destruction of the Jewish people.I hope he's right.
And on this constant threat of the "radicalization" of the Arab and Muslim street, I should remind the Muslim groups, and indeed Muslim countries and communities around the world, of Dryden's warning — "beware the fury of a patient man."
It is the Arab and Muslim "street" that should be worried about the peoples of the West becoming "radicalized" by the incessant provocations and support for the murder and terror inflicted on the Jewish people in particular, and the West in general.
The Arab and Muslim "street" would do well to remember the words of Admiral Yamamoto after the Japanese attack on Pearl Habor: "I fear we have awoken a sleeping giant and have instilled in him a terrible resolve."
