Multiculturalism comes back to bite us...

My sister-in-law brought my attention to this editorial in The Australian, which looks at how the touchy, feely attitude of moral and cultural relativism has sent the wrong message to those who want to kill us.
How times have changed. When four young British Muslims set off from Luton, detonating four bomb blasts in London, most people were shaken out of their reverie. Eventually, it seems, reality bites. Sometimes slowly. Sometimes cruelly. Now, more than a few people are saying that tolerance is not as safe as it seems. That too much of the stuff can be a problem because it suggests to those who detest our values and our societies that we will not make judgments about what is right and what is wrong.
The good news is that more and more people seem to be coming around to recognizing the fallacy of multiculturalism. The bad news is that there are still too many on the Left that cling to it. And they like to shout.
