Paul Martin met with a group of imams yesterday in Toronto and praised them for making a public statement denouncing terrorism, a day late and a dollar short though it was.
What the media has not asked is the question that it should be asking: what did Martin promise them in return during the meeting?
Had he met with the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops or a group of leading evangelical Protestant ministers over any other issue, the press would have been screaming about mixing religion with politics.
But never with Islam. Never, never, with Islam.
