Give peace a chance

That's what the anti war protesters have been saying for years. But did you know that the radical Islamists have been saying that for years as well?
Seriously, they may want to take over the Western world by peaceful means. Think I'm crazy?
See Powerline for the backstory, here and then here.

Today, no less than the Archbishop of Canturbury, head of the Church of England, has said that changing British law to appease Muslims who want to live under the law of Islam, Sharia, is not only a good idea, it may be inevietable. Tip of the hat to Neptunus Lex.

Sun Tzu said:

In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good. So, too, it is better to recapture an army entire than to destroy it, to capture a regiment, a detachment or a company entire than to destroy them.

Therefore the skillful leader subdues the enemy's troops without any fighting; he captures their cities without laying siege to them; he overthrows their kingdom without lengthy operations in the field.

Is it irrational to think that we as Westerners are being hijacked from within? That the enemy is using our weakness, respect for the rule of law, to attack us slowly without actually fighting us?
Ironically, I can't help but think of Ghostbusters. Near the end of the comedy, the ghostbusters are told to choose the form of their destruction. Says Dan Aykroyd, "Mr. Stay Puft "just popped in there" as "something that could never possibly destroy us."

Will the 21st century version of our destructor be our dedication to the rule of law? Will our destructor be a 100 foot lawyer from the ACLU?
