Whatever Happened to Courage?

The Anchoress is guest-blogging at CQ and led me to this wonderful column about Oriana Fallaci. Here's a quote from an interview with the Ayatollah Khomeini:

...Fallaci asked a more insolent question: “How do you swim in a chador?” Khomeini snapped, “Our customs are none of your business. If you do not like Islamic dress you are not obliged to wear it. Because Islamic dress is for good and proper young women.” Fallaci saw an opening, and charged in. “That’s very kind of you, Imam. And since you said so, I’m going to take off this stupid, medieval rag right now.” She yanked off her chador.

Today's journalists are so afraid of Islam they won't even publish a cartoon. Today's liberals wouldn't dare offend Islam by pointing out basic human rights atrocities.

Forget Iraq, is there any chance in hell that America can win the overall war on terror when half its people have already surrendered?
