“…in persisting with his lurid accusations, Mohammed Fayed revealed how little he understands Britain: He’s lived there for years, it’s been good to him, he owns Harrod’s and the Paris Ritz and various other baubles. No big deal. He’s one of many, many beneficiaries of western openness to ‘the other.’ And yet he’s convinced himself that Buckingham Palace is so consumed by ‘Islamophobia’ that the Queen’s husband dialed M, and M called in Moneypenny, and Moneypenny faxed 007, and a week later the Princess and her Islamostud are dead.
“Reality is more humdrum: In multiculti Britain, everyone was indifferent to Di’s Muslim lover. Could have been a Hindu, could have been a Buddhist. Who cares? But instead Mr. Fayed has retreated into the paranoia and victim mentality that stunts so much of the Muslim world.”
