The Muslim Majority

“Notable & Quotable,” The Wall Street Journal, 11/17/2015. Quote from historian Niall Ferguson, 11/2015.

It is doubtless true to say that the overwhelming majority of Muslims in Europe are not violent. But it is also true that the majority hold views not easily reconciled with the principles of our liberal democracies, including our novel notions about sexual equality and tolerance not merely of religious diversity but of nearly all sexual proclivities. And it is thus remarkably easy for a violent minority to acquire their weapons and prepare their assaults on civilization within these avowedly peace-loving communities.

Whenever I see pitiful Syrian refugee mothers clinging protectively to their children, I am reminded many are the same women who yell at Western women on a European street, “You dress like a whore!  Your husband should beat you.”
