Good post from Tim Blair on what this war on terror is really about. I think we tend to want to ignore the stark differences between us and the terrorists. This quote reminds us:
“Alcohol, bikinis, that kind of thing makes Muslims angry. Don’t do that when visiting a country with a Muslim majority,” he said. “I’m sorry, Australian culture makes war on morality. They come to Bali with bikinis, they make war on morality. Not physical war, morality war. Respect the culture and religion of Indonesia.”
By the way, Blair’s talking about the Bali terrorist blasts that killed 20 people less than 2 weeks ago. How many Americans realize there’s been another bombing in Bali? How many remember the first one? Hard to convince some people that we’re still at war.
