“I’ve always held that Islam is largely to blame for the viciousness which is periodically unleashed upon us all in the form of bombings – that it is the credo, rather than the individual, which is principally to blame”, explains Rod Liddle in the Spectator.
But the broadminded Rod is prepared to concede that there are other causal factors. And no, of course it’s not foreign policy. Young Muslims drawn to terrorism are “narcissistic adolescent halfwits”, according to Liddle, who are “simply a different side of the coin to the stabbers, muggers and thugs of young, modern Britain: over-indulged, forever demanding of respect and redress”.
I ask you, where would British journalism be without Rod Liddle’s insightful political analysis?
