"'Sensitivity' can have brutal consequences"

Mark Steyn's column today in the SunTimes is well worth the read.

If our "sensitivity and tolerance" of other cultures demand we subjugate ourselves to those cultures, ist that much different than being conquered by those cultures?

One day the British foreign secretary will wake up and discover that, in practice, there's very little difference between living under Exquisitely Refined Multicultural Sensitivity and Sharia. As a famously sensitive Dane once put it, "To be or not to be, that is the question."
(h/t to Powerline.)
