"Muslims are not violent!" and to prove it...


The Muslim world rioting over a Danish Cartoon. But the riots are against the U.S., our bases and embassies. Because apparently, we have our hands in everything, even Danish newspapers nowadays. All part of our nefarious plan.
The U.S. base was targeted because the United States "is the leader of Europe and the leading infidel in the world," said Sher Mohammed, a 40-year-old farmer who suffered a gunshot wound while taking part in the demonstration in the city of Qalat. "They are all the enemy of Islam. They are occupiers in our country and must be driven out," Mohammed said


I never thought I'd agree whole-heartedly with Ann Coulter, but these are Strange Days. Some clips from her commentary, 'Calvin and Hobbes and Muhammad':
In order to express their displeasure with the idea that Muslims are violent, thousands of Muslims around the world engaged in rioting, arson, mob savagery, flag-burning, murder and mayhem, among other peaceful acts of nonviolence.

Muslims are the only people who make feminists seem laid-back.
...
The rioting Muslims claim they are upset because Islam prohibits any depictions of Muhammad -- though the text is ambiguous on beheadings, suicide bombings and flying planes into skyscrapers.

The belief that Islam forbids portrayals of Muhammad is recently acquired. Back when Muslims created things, rather than blowing them up, they made paintings, frescoes, miniatures and prints of Muhammad. But apparently the Quran is like the Constitution: It's a "living document," capable of sprouting all-new provisions at will. Muslims ought to start claiming the Quran also prohibits indoor plumbing, to explain their lack of it.

Other interpretations of the Quran forbid images of humans or animals, which makes even a child's coloring book blasphemous. That's why the Taliban blew up those priceless Buddhist statues, bless their innocent, peace-loving little hearts.
...
Making the rash assumption for purposes of discussion that Islam is a religion and not a car-burning cult, even a real religion can't go bossing around other people like this.

Catholics aren't short on rules, but they couldn't care less if non-Catholics use birth control. Conservative Jews have no interest in forbidding other people from mixing meat and dairy.


I was right there with her until the last line, a two-penny zinger against liberals. For Allah's sake woman, you CAN make a point without falling back on that. I look forward to reading her expose the Bird Flu epidemic where she "ties it all together" with a circa-1998 joke about Clinton and a Cuban Cigar.

  1. Interesting choice to reprint the cartoon that a third of the world swears they will kill anyone for printing.
    When you're a ghost, see if you can make George W choke on a pretzel again. But this time finish the job.
