Boris Johnson on Islam

“What makes modern Islam so politically troublesome is that some Muslims can be induced to take offence not just at an insult to Islam, but at any injustice suffered by one of their co-religionists, and it is this deep personal sense of outrage – scarcely explicable to our post-enlightenment souls – that helps the whacko imams to warp the alienated young men into becoming suicide bombers….”

Boris Johnson outlines his – sorry, “our” – attitude to Islam. He adds: “The proposed ban on incitement to ‘religious hatred’ makes no sense unless it involves a ban on the Koran itself…”
