Time to get angry about Islamist terror

Time to get angry about Islamist terror, by Janet Albrechtsen.

In Riyadh this week, US President Donald Trump reminded more than 50 Arab Muslim leaders that “the nations of the Middle East cannot wait for American power to crush this enemy for them … A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and extremists.”

“Drive. Them. Out,” he said. “Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land and drive them out of this earth.”

Trump offered up the kind of moral clarity that drove the West to defeat Nazis and Soviet communists. What has happened to us in the interim? Paralysed by political correctness, we walk on eggshells so as not to offend.

Ask hard questions about immigration? You’re a racist.

Talk about Islam and terrorism? You’re an Islamophobe.

Keep calm and stay quiet? Not any more. It’s time to get angry.
