Slouching Toward Dhimmitude

"The managing editor of a French newspaper has been fired over publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad that are inflaming the Muslim world, where Pakistani protesters on Thursday chanted "Death to France!" and Gaza gunmen demanded apologies from European governments."

Ah yes, I remember the riots, kidnappings, burning buildings, and death threats when Muslims publish textbooks teaching that Jews kill Arab babies and use their blood to make Matzo and promise to nuke Israel as soon as they can. Oh, wait, that response didn't happen. But I'm sure I remember the beheadings and fatwahs issued against Andres Serrano for the "Piss Christ". Oh, you mean that response didn't happen either? Huh. Go figure.

But I'm sure the new Rolling Stone cover will result in car burnings all through the country. Yeah.

This is not Republican versus Democrat or Conservative versus Liberal. This is the light versus the dark. Freedom versus Tyranny. Civilization and "liberal thought" (no, not that kind of liberal, the classical liberal) versus, well, Shari'a "law" and dictatorial theocratic thugs that wrap themselves in the Koran while filling their bank accounts, executing rape victims, and stoning gays.

Average birth rate in primarily Islamic countries: 6+ per woman Average birth rate in Europe: Close to 1 per woman (population replacement rate, not surprisingly, is over 2)

Tick, tick, tick...

Giving in to the basest demands of radical Islam is not going to be a very safe path.

Holy Furry Christ in a Car Seat!

"In Beirut, the leader of Lebanon’s Shi’ite Hizbollah said the row [over the cartoons] would never had occurred if a 17-year-old death edict against British writer Salman Rushdie been carried out."

Skoot, I think you have some misguided opinions toward Muslims, and NO I am not a Muslim, nor am I a bleeding-heart lefty....

I form my opinions based on the events I see and hear. I don't condemn all Muslims, however my lyin' eyes show me a large, worldwide, and vocal group of radical Islamists that wrap themselves in the religion as an excuse to gain power.

I would have more respect for Muslims as a larger group if there was more pushback, verbally if not physically, against groups that blow up innocents and teach their children such hate.

My opinions may be 'misguided' in your view but they were 'guided' by events I didn't create but only observed.
