I'm in the middle of reading Melanie Phillips very scary Londonistan
. My wife just emailed me to say the police presence in the subway is greater than any she's ever seen. Meanwhile, of course, Israel is confronting the power Iran is projecting via rockets into Israel (in advance of what seems to be inevitable jihad nukes). Luckily for all of us, it's all just a mirage
. Prosperity lasts forever. The West isn't decadent to the point of full collapse. The Islamists aren't moving in to fill a moral void in England, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and Italy. Those aren't mosques in Birmingham. That isn't a virulent anti-semite with rabid eyes and a pirate hook for a hand getting cozy with the heir to throne of Britain ("defender of the
faith"). French cars are known to explode on their own simultaneously in large numbers. Fallaci isn't really on trial--again. Glad it was only a nightmare.
