"We hate Canada"

In Front Page Magazine, Robert Spencer looks at the internet postings of wives of some of the men arrested in Canada's anti—terror bust, and what they reveal about the western world's experience of receiving Muslim immigrants. He supplies lots of good analysis.  His main conclusion:

... Islamic terror is not a problem that can be solved by social engineering. It cannot be assuaged by gestures of good will, negotiations or concessions. There is in Western countries today a large and growing population of Muslims, among whom are many who have no intention of assimilating or adopting Western values and perspectives, and who regard the West with as much or more disdain and contempt as these women show in their Internet postings. The jihad ideology as such must be confronted and combated, or it will continue to spread, and breed terrorists and subversives.... to understand this and take positive steps to deal with it, they would first have to admit that Islam has anything to do with terrorism at all — something they have taken great pride in denying.
