I thought it was apparent that I was talking about such a mass movement here in the UK. It is a totally different socio-political context to that of Hom. That's a ridiculous comparison. We are a democracy (a shaky one at times I know) with a long tradition of such, and depsite our many collective faults over the centuries, there is still, for the time being at least, an inbuilt sense of justice and and right in the collective psyche, with very deep roots. A very different situation.
Indeed. When I see people signing up to fight alongside the Muslim Brotherhood et al in Syria as part of a 21st Century International Brigade then I will start to take the talk seriously. In the meantime it is "Guns on the Roof" part 101.
