Our problem in a nutshell
In many different essays here (and on my retired blog Jihad Watch Watch), I've expressed the problem of Islam more often than not in long and complex analyses. Recently, in an e-mail to a friend, I spontaneously formulated the whole thing in a nutshell:
The Islamic tactic of claiming and manufacturing "victim" status is enormously helped by Western PC MC, and Muslims exploit it. However, Muslims would not be able to exploit it if in fact -- to put it bluntly -- so many of them did not look ethnic. In fact, 9 times out of 10, whenever we look at Muslims, we see people who look ethnic in one way or another, according to our Western (and particularly PC) standards of what that term means. According to PC MC, ethnic (and particularly non-Western) people are ipso facto accorded special privileges and respect, in comparison with white Western people. This simple mechanism of "reverse racism" is the beginning of the process. Other factors have been added in the last few years to make Muslims the #1 ethnic people of all -- such as the factor that Muslims more than any other ethnic people are violent and are capable of scaring people with threats. The PC MC West is then forced into a corner of its own making where it is simultaneously afraid of Muslim violence and at the same time insists that Muslims are peaceful and need to be protected from our Western tendency to be racist.
