ISLAMIST BRIDGE-BURNING: Reports are that the attack on the supertanker Limburg, and the stabbing of the mayor of Paris by a gay-hating Muslim, have (unsurprisingly) steeled the French against the Islamist threat. If the bombing in Helsinki (which Finnish blogger Teemu Lehtonen is following closely) is Islamist terror, more Europeans who could previously live in a fantasy world of ambivalence will become our strong allies. It's amazing how little the terrorists understand the West.
