The Main Barrier to Stopping Islam's Encroachment

I just read a good article on Geert Wilders. He said something I really liked:
"Right now, people are speaking without really saying what they mean. It’s not enough to talk about immigration. You have to get to the core of the issue, which is that Islam is incompatible with democracy.”
That basic thing — simply speaking directly about the issue — seems to be one of the main barriers to getting anything done to stop Islam's relentless encroachment. Political correctness and multiculturalism seem to have constrained and impeded free speech so much that in high political circles or in newspapers it is almost impossible to find anyone willing to speak normally about it. All you manage to get is a very carefully-crafted vagueness. No problem can be solved that way.
