Douglas Murray: "Excuses For Terrorism"

I quite admire Douglas Murray.

He is a truly brave soul.

"The enemies of Israel and the enemies of the rest of the civilized world have some minor differences, but there is far more that they have in common."

"They are both driven not only by the same jihadist ideologies but by the insistence that their political and religious view of the world is relevant not just for them, but needs to be implemented against all of the rest of us."

"It may take a while to realize it, but we are all in the same boat."

"It also may take a while until European cities reach for the blue and white bulbs; but if we start to question where those bulbs went, we might get closer not only to understanding Israel's predicament, but to understanding the predicament that is also now our own."
