Naomi Klein on terrorism...

Here is Naomi Klein's latest diatrible.....we actually need more multiculturalism to fight terrorism.
The real problem is not too much multiculturalism but too little. If the diversity now ghettoized on the margins of Western societies--geographically and psychologically--were truly allowed to migrate to the centers, it might infuse public life in the West with a powerful new humanism. If we had deeply multi-ethnic societies, rather than shallow multicultural ones, it would be much more difficult for politicians to sign deportation orders sending Algerian asylum-seekers to torture, or to wage wars in which only the invaders' dead are counted. A society that truly lived its values of equality and human rights, at home and abroad, would have another benefit too. It would rob terrorists of what has always been their greatest recruitment tool: our racism.
How can anybody take her seriously? Afterall, anti-semitism wasn't a recruitment tool for terror. But, isn't it the left who thinks that diversity is just ethnicity/skin colour, rather than ideas???
