Anticipating the Mental Luxations of the Schmock Classes

Esther from Islam in Europe writes this:
Germans more anti-Islam
According to new research, Germans feel more and more negatively towards Islam. They are less willing to be tolerant to a religion which is seen as being in itself intolerant and threatening.

71% of those questioned said Islam was intolerant, compared with 66% two years ago. 56% thought it was ok to forbid building new mosques as long as some Muslim lands forbade building churches. 56% also said there was a "clash of cultures" between Islam and Christianity. 40% thought practicing Islam in Germany should be strictly curtailed.

I think that's a pretty good improvement of the collective mind of a people of whom 45 % call the U.S. a "greater threat to world peace" than Iran and who in their majority consider Israel as the"greatest threat to world peace".

I am waiting now for the mental luxations of the Schmock classes in their juggling to reconcile the unreconcilable.
