Religion of peace? Mmmm. I'm rethinking that.

Muslim demonstrators in Syria have burned the Danish embassy to the ground and have now torched the Norwegian embassy. All because of their "outrage" at those funny cartoons. Muslim = "Religion of peace"? How about Muslim = "Humourless bunch of retards"?

Ok so this is a classic case of "a few bad apples" but it's over a damned cartoon!
And just to put things in check, here, a quick rundown of some muslim actions over the last couple of years, apparently none of which warranted the sort of "muslim outrage" being shown over these cartoons:

- Muslim officials block the exit where school girls are trying to escape a burning building because their faces were exposed.
- Muslims cut off the heads of three teenaged girls on their way to school in Indonesia. A Christian school.
- Muslims murder teachers trying to teach Muslim children in Iraq.
- Muslims murder over 80 tourists with car bombs outside cafes and hotels in Egypt.
- Muslims slaughter hundreds of children and teachers in Beslan, shooting children in the back.
- Let's go way back. Muslims kidnap and kill athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics.
- Muslims fire rocket-propelled grenades into schools full of children in Israel.
- Muslims murder more than 50 commuters in attacks on London subways and busses.
- Muslims murder innocent vacationers in Bali.
- And my favourite: Muslim newspapers publish anti-Semitic cartoons.

It's a sad fact that muslims are involved, on one side or the other, in almost every one of the 125+ shooting wars going on around the world right now. These protestors are not doing anything to sell the image of their "Religion of peace" to the rest of the world. From an outside perspective it looks like some of these people have nothing better to do than wonder around with a gigantic chin on their shoulder just waiting to be offended by something so they can use it as an excuse for violence.

Christ! Can you imagine if the Jews revolted at every bad depiction of them in the press? Or the Christians. Or the French?

Hi Chris,

You may not have seen it on the news in the US, but back here in the UK there have been protests by so-called members of the "Religion of Peace" about the cartoons published in the Danish newspaper.

The pictures on the news showed some of those protesters carrying banners and placards. And what did their banners say?

Here's a sample:
"Slay those who insult Islam"
"Exterminate all who slander Islam".
"Behead the one who insults the prophet"
"Europe you will pay, Bin Laden is way"
"Whoever insults a prophet kill him"
"Europe your 3(sic)/11 will come"

Nice and peaceful, eh?

Now, if I had joined a peaceful protest and seen people carrying banners like that, I'd have left immediately.

I wouldn't want to be associated with people peddling sectarian hate. It amazes me that there seems to be support for these views.

M.E.
