“have him on trial for his alleged claim that Islam does not square with Western ideals.”

Of course it doesn’t. One of Islam’s main attractions to disaffected people is that it’s not “Western”. Steyn’s “crime” consists of pointing out this fact.

Islam is at odds with the civil rights and democracy that the West takes for granted. So sue me.

Well of course it does. Just ask CAIR.

"Nor is it quite the same as the fate of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who scripted that film and was forced to escape the Netherlands. She has since moved to the United States, where, of course, she travels with bodyguards"

A bit off the subject - but related in terms of the pervasiveness of political correctness. I was doing a book signing recently and was looking around the bookstore. Now keep in mind that Ayaan Hirsi Ali was born in Somalia and has lived in Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, Kenya, and the Netherlands. In the bookstore, her work is grouped under "African-American" authors.

Two "human rights" panels, the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal and the Canadian Human Rights Commission, have him on trial for his alleged claim that Islam does not square with Western ideals.

The mere fact that a man can be put on trial for making such a claim serves to prove it, in my opinion. Islam, like communism, is so sensitive to criticism that it must silence all its critics using the coercive force of govermnent as a first resort.
