BigDog – your point about journalists and the attitude of the BBC is a good one.
It is fair to say that here in Belgium both Dutch and French speaking media are much more ‘hard headed’ than the BBC on this issue. Several of them have reprinted the cartoons from the magazine, they have written editorial pieces making clear their determination to be heard while regretfully the BBC is still following its usual ” kum bay ya” approach to Muslim extremism.
Only this morning on the Today program I heard a presenter talk about the need for a “greater understanding of what drove these people” and could it be solved with “more resources” as though throwing money at them would change their views.
