Michelle Malkin » The eternal flame of Muslim outrageMichelle Malkin said:The eternal flame of Muslim outrage
by Michelle Malkin
Shhhhhhh, we’re told. Don’t protest the Ground Zero mosque. Don’t burn a Koran. It’ll imperil the troops. It’ll inflame tensions. The “Muslim world” will “explode” if it does not get its way, warns sharia-peddling imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Pardon my national security-threatening impudence, but when is the “Muslim world” not ready to “explode”?
At the risk of provoking the ever-volatile Religion of Perpetual Outrage, let us count the little-noticed and forgotten ways.
A very good argument depicting, frankly, stupid occurrences which have outraged Muslims around the world. The problem is, other countries and businesses capitulate to the most idiotic of perceived atrocities against Islam --- like the Burger King ice cream lid logo in Britain. Is that REALLY the cause of outrage? Ice cream swirls ...
The issue at hand is: Maybe Christians have gotten a bad rap. Maybe to get some cred these days, the whole "turn the other cheek" stuff should be replaced with some AK-47's and C4 going off. (Not really but it does make one wonder). Maybe that's the only thing that makes government's and business take notice - when people die and property is destroyed. Radicals certainly have got some credibility --- don't burn a Quran or we'll get threats or worse... our troops will be endangered. Aren't they in danger already? And really... when swirls on an ice cream cup are a cause for Jihad ... I start to think we need to start demanding tolerance from Islam - instead of asking for it.
