Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you have people who take their religion seriously enough to start fires at newspapers, then I think that's a rather good reason to pick a fight.

Whether it's a smart fight to pick if your objective is to push back against religious nuts and/or drive religion back into the purely private sphere... that's less obvious. On one hand, it worked against the Catholic Church. On the other hand, the political context vis-a-vis Islam is different.
