The EU and Islamists

Finally, someone is challenging the choice by the EU of organizations which have made or endorsed antisemitic statements, or which are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, to represent all Muslims in interfaith dialogues.

Europe's umbrella Orthodox rabbinic organization, the Conference of European Rabbis, boycotted a Brussels interfaith conference hosted on Monday by EU institutions for that reason.

Let's hope this is the beginning of a trend: Islamist organizations should be called on their words and their actions, not given a pass to avoid offending Muslim sensibilities. (Thanks to Jihad Watch.)
