Prime Minister, Theresa May, demonstrates by her words and actions illustrated in the Wall Street Journal below, that she like most of the leaders in Western Europe have not come to terms with Islamic Jihadists.

She offers more useless bromides and wishful thinking.
Call it creative appeasement if you will.
Has this worked in any host country where it has been applied?
Of course not, Islam’s goal is singular.
That, unfortunately, will not make a dent in the acts of terror inflicted on her country and the world over.
Killing these brainwashed, inbred zealots must become priority number one among her other agendas.
Perhaps she will be removed from office and the situation will become moot.

Writing in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal as Theodore Dalrymple, the great Dr. Daniels gives us the quote of the day on the London Bridge attacks: “As Prime Minister Theresa May rightly said after the most recent atrocities in London, what the terrorists have in common is an ideology.
She rightly called it evil, but it is also ignorant: It makes the Baader-Meinhof Gang look like Aristotle.”
Here are her observations that hit close to home:
An ideology, however stupid, is not easy to destroy; believing six impossible things before breakfast is almost par for the human course.
One obvious thing to do would be to strangle the foreign funding of so much Islamist activity in Britain.
The British economy is precarious, and it is difficult to be strong when your economy is weak.
Instead, we have gone in for what a Dutch friend of mine calls “creative appeasement.”
Authorities make concessions even before, one suspects, there have been any demands for them.
Thus, a public library in Birmingham, one of the largest known to me, has installed women-only tables, a euphemism for Muslim women only.
Whether there was ever a request or demand for sex-segregated seating from Muslims is probably undiscoverable; truth seldom emerges from a public authority.
But the justification would almost certainly be that without such tables, Muslim women would not be able to use the library at all.
The Birmingham airport has set aside a room for wudu, the Muslim ablutions before prayer.
No other religion is catered for in this fashion (nor should they be, in my opinion), so the impression is inevitably given that Islam is in some way favored or privileged.
Again, it would be difficult to find out whether they received requests or demands for such a room or merely anticipated them; in either case, weakness is advertised.
This is not a local problem alone….
From all this the terrorists surely draw a great deal of comfort.
It gives them the impression of living in a weak society that will be easy to destroy, so that their acts are not in the least nihilistic or pointless, as is often claimed.
They perceive ours as a candle-and-teddy-bear society (albeit mysteriously endowed with technological prowess): We kill, you light candles.
The other day I passed a teddy-bear shop, that is to say a shop that sold nothing but teddy bears.
I am sure that terrorism is good for business, but the teddy bears are more reassuring for the terrorists than for those who buy them to place on the site of the latest outrage.
That “creative appeasement,” it’s not just a European phenomenon, of course. It is
It is a cancer that is metastasizing throughout the Western world.
To take just one pointed example, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges recently gave her state of the city address in a local mosque.
If the ideology of Islamist terrorism is stupid, it’s got nothing on the left’s creative appeasers.
