William Evans said
"we're all Muslims deep down", in a form of apologia similar to Michael Bloomberg's when he was mayor of NYC. Hugh Fitzgerald wonders why he wouldn't read the Koran:
Before speaking out and telling that crowd with such conviction that “we are all Muslims” because “we all want peace” (apparently being Christian would not have been sufficient), shouldn’t Police Commissioner Evans have read the Qur’an, and noted the 109 verses that mention making war on Infidels? Is it possible he relied on a Muslim colleague or friend who offered a simple deeply sincere assurance that “Islam means peace” and “anyone who says otherwise, is a troublemaker.” And besides, don’t we keep being told that Islam mean “peace”?
Just like Bloomberg, Evans and all who took the dhimmi route of apologia are too cowardly to quote anything from the Koran. And Bloomberg caused a lot damage with the poor example he set years ago by kowtowing.
