Racist's siren voices strengthened by Muslim response to cartoons
But the thing that worries me is that slogans like 'Massacare those who insult Islam' and 'Behead those who insult Islam' is that they will alienate the decent, tolerant Britons who have been prepared to accept the gulf between 'us' and 'them' as just one more aspect of the diverse world in which we live. The insidious thinking of the racist response is thereby made much more persuasive and closer as is the danger of real violence between races and religions in this generally harmonious muticultural society.
