10-Day Absence

I'll be away from Internet access for the next ten days, and will pick up from here when I'm back.

Toynbee offers a plausible explanation on how muslims came to base their culture on slavery - I'll post on that when I'm back. Fortuitously, Melanie Phillips today describes one of their slaving targets - England!. Neal Stephenson gives a fictional perspective of this in volume 1 of his splendid Quicksilver trilogy.

The muslim addiction to slavery helps explain their self-defeating behavior. If the only outcome you seek is enslavement of the rest of humanity, there's nothing you won't do to them. Which means that there's nothing they won't do to you...
