Why else would hundreds come out to jubilantly cheer a murdering bomber on his return to Libya?
People don't cheer for things they disapprove of.
They are not jubilant about people whose actions are contrary to their own intent.
They don't send the Head of State's son to the airport to greet persons they feel are deplorable monsters.
Every Libyan, or almost every Libyan, wishes he or she would have a chance to blow up several hundred non-moslems, especially if they included plenty of Americans and British.
It's like the Bali bombing. A few people did it, but billions were supporting of the hero martyrs who did the actual job. Same thing in Kenya. Same thing on 9/11.
The West needs to create a hermetic seal between itself and all moslems. Let moslems have all of their purity by living together with each other in moslem lands. Let's have the West just forget about it's bankrupt oil-based economy, and find some other forms of energy, and do without the moslems.
These cultures are not ready to be co-located. They need to be separated. The moslems for their greater purity, the West for its greater longevity. We can do quite well, on both sides, without each other. The moslems can sell their oil to the Chinese, who do want it. The Chinese will have no trouble refraining from contaminating moslem lands or bringing imperialism to them -- they are old fashioned cash on the barrelhead traders and are not looking to extend Chinese power to Saudi Arabia, or Yemen, or Libya, or help those people become more "Chinese".
For my money all moslems could be in a heavy steel Mosler safe at the bottom of the sea, but I want to be fairminded, and gentle, and affable to the extant that it is possible. So let's think separation of the two cultures.
Lord Mountbatten showed the way.
