Meanwhile, consider the Prime Minister’s words carefully as you brush your teeth tonight. He means you and me — for sure he wasn’t talking to himself.
|If you imagine that you can buy immunity from fanatics by curling yourself in a ball, apologising for the world – [and] to the world – for who you are and what you stand for and what you believe in… not only is that morally bankrupt but it’s also ineffective.|
|… fanatics despise a lot of things and the things they despise most [are] weakness and timidity. There has been plenty of evidence through history that fanatics attack weakness and retreating people even more savagely than they do defiant people.|
