Another Nail In Great Britain's Coffin?

I think hyperbole is overused in today's political discussions (especially from the Stop Alito Crowd), so I hope I'm not engaging in it here, but this article by Diana West makes me wonder how much longer Great Britian can survive as a free non-Muslim country when it still fears to correctly name its enemy.
For the defense, Edward Fitzgerald says: "It is said he was preaching murder. But he was actually preaching from the Koran itself."

Well, which is it, gentlemen? He's preaching murder that has nothing to do with Islam; or he's preaching the Koran that has nothing to do with murder. For people trying to fend off jihad in their midst, the question becomes a distracting conundrum.

At the onset of the trial, prosecutor Perry predicted the defense would likely argue that Abu Hamza "was speaking as a follower of Islam and he was speaking the words of the holy Koran." This, Mr. Perry explained, was not the prosecution's contention. "This prosecution is not brought to criticize Islam or criticize the teachings of the Koran. It is brought because of what the defendant says."
Read the whole thing. Then you can tell yourself, if you're into denial, that this is just one episode in the whole country. But there have been a whole lot of other episodes.

For example, is the pig ban still on?
