Excellent question

[source, source]

Former Spanish prime minister Jose Maria Aznar on Friday defended Pope Benedict XVI’s comments about Islam, saying the pontiff had no need to apologise and asking why Muslims never did, according to newspaper reports published on Saturday.

“Why do we always have to say sorry and they never do?? Mr Aznar told a conference in the United States.

“It is interesting to note that while a lot of people in the world are asking the pope to apologise for his speech, I have never heard a Muslim say sorry for having conquered Spain and occupying it for eight centuries.?

This is precisely the kind of response the West should be making to Islam. It highlights the essential contradiction at the heart of the Caliphascist effort to use the West’s decency against it, which is that the West rates better on that scale than Islam.
