Worst bee metaphor of the month award

Another bee metaphor -- this time about politics and this time pretty poor. The author calls it the parable of the bees (presumably giving away his religious right tendencies). He relates a bee hive to a self-contained community (and then, hey presto, to terrorism!) and why we shouldn't adopt a policy of live and let live for such communities. I suspect the author knows as little about humans as he does about bees.

I think this metaphor is much more apt.
