The Muslim Silent Majority
In this week's Los Angeles Jewish Journal (possibly reprinted from elsewhere), Salam Al-Marayati, Executive Director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, laments that the world is focusing on the negative aspects of the whole Muslim cartoon riot thing, instead of, well, those who aren't rioting. Fair point, uh, maybe. There's a lot to say about this article, but instead of a full fisking, I'll just focus on my favorite sentence:
"...while there is anti-Jewish and anti-Christian sentiment in the Muslim world, it has never reached the point of defiling the images of Jesus and Moses."
No - it just reaches the point of killing Christians and Jews. If it's all the same to you, Salam, I'd prefer the image defiling.
Glad you finally figured out that you'd erroneously posted this first on "OUR KIDS SPEAK". I thought that you were speaking pretty loudly for a kid.Post a Comment
