Observation in a piece by Melanie Phillips:
(the) basic argument that unless we are nice to Muslims we will drive moderate individuals into the arms of extremists is badly flawed. The recent Pew survey showed that, of all the countries of Europe, the British were the nicest to their Muslim minority — and yet British Muslims hated their host country, the west and the Jews more than Muslims anywhere else. Moral: Islamic extremism is not reduced by the emollience of the host nation, and it may even be exacerbated by it. That is because it feeds not on strength, but on weakness: not on hostility, but on a collapse of cultural and religious nerve.
