* Hahahaha! Really? And why would that be? Year-in, year-out these wonderful Muslims spew hatred, bomb us, vilify us, sabotage us, undermine our interests and threaten and blackmail us, and then they wonder why we can’t just love them for it:
From the Chutzpah department:
BAKU: The head of the 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) accused the West of anti-Muslim bias on Thursday and warned journalists against automatically linking Islam with terrorism. “Bias against Islam has increased since September 11, 2001 and a series of terrorist acts in Europe … What we see now is a monologue, not a dialogue, and that increases divisions,” Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said at the opening of an OIC conference on the media in the Azerbaijani capital, Baku. “The media must dispel the myth that terrorism and Islam are identical concepts,” he said, adding that the misrepresentation of Islam “adds fuel to the fire” of Muslim discontent with the West. Issues of media freedom in Muslim states, including mainly Muslim Azerbaijan, were also raised at the event. The OIC organized the two-day conference in an effort to promote “tolerance and mutual understanding” in the media. Among those present were representatives of major media outlets from Muslim countries, including Qatar-based Al-Jazeera television and Egypt’s Al-Ahram newspaper. – AFP
* Hmm. First, who, in Ihsanoglu’s opinion, was behind 9/11? Second, whether or not he believes Muslims were responsible for 9/11 and other attacks, does he mean to justify current and future violence based on the fact that Western media may hurt Muslims’ feelings?
And, by the way, it was Ihsanoglu who called the Danish cartoons of Muhammad the “9/11 of the Islamic world.” Y’know, talk like that just “adds fuel to the fire” of Western discontent with the OIC. But no effigies will be burned, no bystanders injured.
