Jack Straw grovels to Islam

The First Post leans pretty steeply to the left, and is often condescendingly anti-American, but for some reason, I still find myself reading it from time to time. I was reminded today why.

This week's edition (the site bills itself as "the weekly magazine that changes daily") carries a well-aimed editorial by Sean Thomas against British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw. It seems that in some public comments, Mr. Straw referred to Mohammed as "the Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him" in much the same reverent manner as would an adherent of Islam.

Mr. Thomas raises the legitimate question of whether Mr. Straw would show similar respect to Christians or Jews during public comments.

Not bloody likely, me thinks.
