    A Rising Tide of Fury
    By Tony Blankley, The Washington Times
    May 2, 2007

    Whenever I refer to the threat of radical Islam, I am inundated with e-mails chastising me for unjustified alarmism (that is the polite description of the missives). This week, even the esteemed and often accurate British Economist accused me, by name, of overestimating the threat and being alarmist on the topic.

    Not only do I hope they are right, but I regularly monitor the news for evidence of my error; for I have long taken to heart and applied to myself the advice that Oliver Cromwell gave to the Scottish Presbyterians: "I beseech you in the bowels of Christ think it possible you may be mistaken."

    Nonetheless, while Muslim attitudes across the world are dynamic, and subtle inflections of thought are not easily captured by polling, the news continues to be not encouraging.

    It's not the British Economist, merely the Economist.The "British" merely refers to its nation of publication, and since Jesus himself writes the Economist, I wouldn't question.
