My crystal ball tells me Â that the farcical UN will now cave in to Â OIC demands Â to implement the blasphemy laws they so crave.
When human lives are worth less than paper (Andrew Bolt)
While bibles are destroyed, desecrated and banned from Muslim countries, and Christians, Jews, and Hindus are systematically persecuted, slaughtered and oppressed — this horror. Killing UN employees, an organization voluntarily and largely driven by the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Instead of a thank you, one big FU. Â Â Al Jizz implies that the preacher made ’em do it; that’s how in control the Muslim world is of the narrative.
As predictedÂ here, what has been almost entirely lost in the discussion is the fact that Muslims have the free will to restrain themselves when offended, if they so choose.
Even the headline below takes the automatic, violent reaction of Muslims for granted — simple cause and effect — thereby tacitly excusing them from responsibility after being “provoked.”
For which other group would such behavior be accepted as normal, as a logical and inevitable response? Fill in the blanks. Mix and match as you like. “__________ go on rampage after two preachers of the __________ faith burn their holy book, the __________, 20 dead.”
Muslims ought to be insulted at the low expectations for them, and embarrassed by their co-religionists who are also burning utterly, completely, obviously unaffiliated churches in Pakistan over Jones’ and Sapp’s burning of the Qur’an. But of course, they’re getting the better part of that double standard.
We should seeÂ at least equal Muslim outrage to those opportunistic “revenge” attacks on non-Muslims, true hate crimes that they are. But don’t bet the farm on it. At least not in Afghanistan or Pakistan, where it may yet be burned down and seized by an enraged mob.
“Two beheaded, 20 dead in Afghan clash afterÂ U.S.Â preacher burns Koran,” by Mohammad Bashir for theÂ Associated Press, April 1:
Afghan protesters angered by the burning of a Koran by an obscureÂ U.S.Â pastor killed up to 20 UN staff, beheading two foreigners, when they overran a compound in a “normally peaceful” northern city on Friday in the worst-ever attack on the UN in Afghanistan.
According to the AP, one protester held a sign that said, “We want these bloody bastard Americans with all their forces to leave Afghanistan.”
