Dammit, Blair, you know they only attack people who're safe to attack;

and the real enemy is anything but.
True to his word, Hitchens did indeed continue to fight “a war to the finish between everything I love and everything I hate”, right up until his death in late 2011. But a funny thing happened to his friends on the broader left. Faced with the perfect enemy, the left utterly bottled it. 

Even worse, many leftists – presumably confused by this enemy’s non-Anglo appearance, and desperately wishing not to be seen as racist – have since wilfully conceded territory to what Hitchens accurately described as “theocratic barbarism”. We can witness such concessions in the soft, compliant coverage in Australia of the Sydney-based Hizb ut-Tahrir extremist group.
Yep.  Between fear of being called the Fatal Name, and fear of an enemy who'll actually kill them, they bowed.  And kept bowing.
