Preemptive dhimmitude unrewarded:
Pakistani activists (rent a crowd) Â burn an effigy of David Cameron.
Cameron’sÂ recent foray into dhimmitude — from extolling the nebulous, politically correct construct known as “real Islam,” to calling Gaza a “prison camp,” to his understated comments on Pakistan as an exporter of jihadist terrorism — has failed to win hearts and minds here.
And Pakistan’s posture is but a variation on the idea of “Say Islam is a religion of peace, or we’ll kill you”: Say Pakistan is a great ally and an honest partner with intentions as pure as the driven snow, or lose what little cooperation you’re actually getting, and any terrorism that follows will be all your fault.Â ISI? Never heard of ’em.

Perhaps David Cameron should listen to Islamic clerics for guidance, such as this guy:
- Friday Sermon in Gaza: Muslims Should Wage Jihad to Liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Filth of the Jews, the Brothers of Apes and Pigs
When David Cameron became Britain’s Prime Minister, I warned that he would turn out to be even worse than Labour on the related issues of Israel and the global threat from Islamism to Britain and the west. This was because Cameron had no knowledge of or interest in foreign affairs, and so was always likely merely to reflect the most politically expedient views he encountered â€“ which, given the current poisonous attitude within the British establishment and intelligentsia, were likely to push him into appeasing Britain’s mortal enemies in the Islamic world and dumping on Israel, Britain’s strategic ally in that great struggle.
But even I did not foresee just how cynical Cameron would turn out to be — and how dangerous therefore to the British national interest. Today’s truly shocking and quite astoundingly stupid speech in Turkey has now laid bare the fathomless shallowness and frightening ignorance and idiocy of Britain’s new Prime Minister.
