The all-new, official British position on domestic jihad: Don't fight back to avoid "inflaming" terrorists.
I find this one really hard to wrap my brain around, but...
Britain's high court last year ruled that "long sentences for terrorist crimes could "inflame" rather than deter extremism." And so, accordingly, terrorists are having their sentences reduced. That's jolly. We'll have to check back with them in a few years and see how that's working out.
By the way, and tangentially related: I have a grade school age home schooled student who has a research paper to write and has decided to do it on the lifting of the seige of Vienna in 1683. Lots of web sites out there. The Wiki article almost looks too scholarly for the age category. Any suggestions from readers of sites giving a good overview of the lead-up, the siege, and the battle lifting the siege? A book suggestion or two wouldn't come amiss either. Nothing too heavy. The Internet yields an embarrassment of riches, but I imagine my learned readers will have their faves.
Thank goodness Jan Sobieski III, not to mention the defenders of the city itself, did not have the philosophy of their Lordships of the British high court.
