The benighted fulminate

From The Telegraph.

"The West is accusing Muslims of extremism and terrorism. If someone exploded a bomb on his body he would be right to do so unless the British government apologises and withdraws the 'sir' title," Mohammed Ijaz ul-Haq, the religious affairs minister [of Pakistan], said.

"If Britain doesn't withdraw the award, all Muslim countries should break off diplomatic relations."

Can't imagine why the West accuses Muslims of extremism and terrorism. Can you?

I think this is Tony Blair's parting shot (as PM) at the great issue of our times - the nature of a liberal society, and where the boundaries of its tolerance lie.
