Self Censorship out of Fear

PM Merkel couldn't have said it better, and it's the most reasonable statement so far by a public figure against Muslim radicals:

"We must take care that we do not retreat out of a fear of potentially violent radicals," Merkel was quoted as saying in Hanover's Neue Presse newspaper. "Self-censorship out of fear is not tolerable."

This time around, the Muslim radicals didn't even get a chance to riot, denounce, and destroy since the "offending event" was cancelled out of fear. If you ask me this is getting ridiculous. If we give in out of fear, not only it's not acceptable, not only are we violating our own freedom rights, but we would be handing a win to the radical extremists with colonization dreams.
