I keep bumping into Allah in London because this Ramadan, Allah is riding on a lot of double-decker British buses. Britain’s biggest Muslim charity, Islamic Relief, is begging on his behalf and tugging at our heartstrings from the billboards of the red London buses.
Syria is a holy war, stupid! So why are we, Western morons, getting sucked into a bloody jihad that is not ours to fight? Because East is East and West is West and wide-eyed Westerners refuse to concede how central religion is to the Eastern worldview.
