    Militant Islam: Does Not Play Well With Others

    Honestly, is Islam the most violent culture in this world? It seems like nearly half the world is inflamed because of a political cartoon. If this is how they react to a political cartoon, how would they react to something more serious? Like, for example, a U.S. court ruling that a restruant chain that requires all employees (including Muslims) to handle pig meat? (Note, I don't think this has happened yet, but I think a lawsuit along these lines is not out of the question sometime in the near future.)

    For those people saying that Christianity doesn't have to put up with this kind of blasphemous treatment of their faith, think again. The difference is that when someone speaks ill of the church, or of Christ, Christians do not form violent mobs and take to the streets calling for the death of all non-Christians. We don't even do that (though many of us probably want to) when Muslims undertake unprovoked attacks on civilian populations. The trouble with Muslims is that they think people hate them because they are Muslims. This is not the case at all. And it's not really a matter of hate. Most people distrust Muslims because of the predominance of unprovoked violence in the culture. And I don't care what another non-Muslim has done to you, attacking any random non-Muslim in retaliation is an inhuman act. Here's some advice, if you want to be treated like civilized, moral beings, try acting like it for a change.

    Apologies to all Muslims to whom this doesn't apply, but you guys need to be more vocal in condemning this kind of violence, because it hurts you too. In fact, this sort of behavior, in my opinion, does more to harm civilized, moral Muslims than to any other group.

    Anyway, here are some of the stories relating to this matter:

    ---------Update 19: Protests Grow Over Mohammed Drawings
    ---------Rioters clash with police over prophet cartoons
    ---------Jerusalem Post publishes Mohammed cartoons
    ---------Iranians hurl petrol bombs at Austrian embassy
    ---------Killings at cartoon protests
    ---------New protests erupt in cartoon row
    ---------Cartoon protests rage around the world
    ---------No.10 backs action against cartoon protests
    ---------Muslim cartoon fury claims lives

    And from around the blogosphere:
    ---------Islamic Society of Denmark Used Fake Cartoons to Create Story!
    ---------Bloggers On The Cartoons
    --------- Four people have died as demonstrations against cartoons satirizing the Prophet Mohammed intensify
    ---------[Freedom] Wake up call for Europe?
    ---------Islam's bad image
    ---------The Cartoon War and The War
    ---------Muslim Rioters Prove Danish Cartoonist Right: Mohammed Did Not Teach Peace!


    Blogger A Christian Prophet said...

    I know you referenced the Christian Prophecy blog somewhere. A message from the holy spirit on that blog said if Jesus was portrayed in a cartoon, no matter what the portrayal, he would laugh. I suspect this is because Jesus knows who he is and understands that no one else knows who he is, so he chooses happiness no matter what.

    "If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

    --Samuel Adams
