If we could just sit down and have a good old natter

Richard Landes demolishes a global poll by BBC World Service on attitudes to culture, religion and conflict. Read his post for the detail. Just one quote. (GlobeScan is the company that conducted the poll.)

Doug Miller, president of GlobeScan, added: “Perhaps the strongest finding is that so many people across the world blame intolerant minorities on both sides for the tensions between Islam and the West.”
Remind you of something? Probably too many things. The old moral equivalence technique. George Bush is just as bad as Osama bin Laden. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is as much a fundamentalist as Mohammed Bouyeri.
