Muslim Outrage Over Cartoons

If you've been paying the least bit of attention to the international news you know that Muslims world wide are outraged. They want to burn down, kill, kidnap and, the solution to everything that ails them, behead people. What might they be outraged about?

345-muslim-outrage.jpg

Perhaps Muslims are outraged over:

Muslims flying commercial airliners into New York City buildings killing 3,000 people from 47 countries?

Muslims blocking the exit where school girls are trying to escape a burning building because their girls' faces were exposed?

Muslims cutting off the heads of three teenage girls on their way to their Christian school in Indonesia?

Muslims murdering teachers trying to teach Muslim children in Iraq?

Muslims murdering over 80 tourists with car bombs outside cafes and hotels in Egypt?

A Muslim attacking a missionary children's school in India killing six?

Muslims slaughtering hundreds of children and teachers in Beslan, Russia, including shooting children in the back?

Muslims firing rocket-propelled grenades into schools full of children in Israel?

Muslims murdering 56 commuters, injuring over 700, in attacks on London subways and buses?

Muslims bombing trains in Madrid, Spain, killing 191 commuters and injuring over 2000?

Muslims massacring dozens of innocents at a Jewish Passover Seder?

Muslims murdering innocent vacationers in Bali?

Muslim newspapers publishing anti-Semitic and anti-Christian cartoons?

Muslims beating the charred bodies of Western civilians with their shoes, then hanging them from a bridge?

Muslims videotaping themselves chanting "Allahu Akbar" while they saw the heads off defenseless people?

Muslim involvement, on one side or the other, in almost every one of the 125+ shooting wars around the world?

Nope. Not one or all of the above atrocities being committed in the name of Allah, Mohammad and the Religion of Piece™ have caused any concern with the world's Muslim population. Well, if none of that inspires Muslims to come unhinged then what horror could possibly set them off? It couldn't possibly be anything that would bring insult to their religion...how could you possibly insult Islam anymore than radical Muslims are already doing?

346-mohammad-cartoons.jpg

It turns out that all the fuss started last September when the Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, published 12 different cartoonists' idea of what the Prophet Mohammad might have looked like. Yep, that's it. No slaughter of innocent thousands, no decapitating little girls or shooting them in the back as they fled, no bombing of mosques, no call for the extermination of anyone...just a dozen cartoons. So now, Muslims can't get enough Danish flag burning, tearing and walking upon (in addition to embassy burning).

347-muslim-danish-flag.jpg

Everybody well knows that these blood-lusting murderers do not represent the majority of the world's Muslims. When, though, does the majority become outraged and outspoken? When do they take to the streets and the airwaves to express their outrage at the minority of radicals who are making their religion the object of worldwide hatred and ridicule?

Muslim, Salman Rushdie wrote: "As their ancient, deeply civilized culture of love, art and philosophical reflection is hijacked by paranoiacs, racists, liars, male supremacists, tyrants, fanatics and violence junkies, why are they not screaming?" Indeed, why not? And, for those of you who offer an excuse for the supposed majority of rational Muslims who are so conspicuous by their silence--if not now, then when?

348-cox-forkum-islam-pr.jpg

What is so mind-numbingly annoying about radical Muslims and Muslim nations is their indescribable level of hypocrisy. How are people of non-Muslim religions treated in Muslim nations? Just fine, if you don't let anyone know you're not Muslim. But, show a religious symbol in public and you risk arrest. And, should you answer a few questions about your faith to someone, you might get accused of proselytizing and risk death. They insist that their religious rules and doctrines be followed everywhere in the world but won't accord the least little bit of tolerance in their own countries. The concept of the Golden Rule or Aristotelian ethics is completely lost on these people.

349-offensive-hypocrisy.gif

In response to Muslims boycotting Danish products as well as threatening the lives of anyone and everyone associated with publishing the cartoons, some mostly European newspapers (Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, Jordan, Spain, Switzerland, Hungary, New Zealand, Norway and Poland) republished the cartoons as a sign of solidarity. They, of course, are also now the subject of Muslim threats and violence. American media, the supposed stalwart of freedom of the press, continues to report the story without showing the cartoons. We're supposed to believe, the mainstream media, so eager to show images of Piss Christ (crucifix submerged in urine) and the Virgin Mary made with cow dung, are all of a sudden concerned with offending people. No sign of a double standard here (sarcasm)...there's a reason the mainstream media is called liberal...or just plain yellow. You know something is really messed up when the French have more backbone than the Americans.

350-cowardly-media.jpg

So, in conclusion, I've added the Buy Danish Campaign banner to the upper right of the front page of Danz Family and would encourage everyone to buy Danish products to help counter the Muslim nations' boycott.

    I love your blog. About your buy Danish campaign. I thought about that originally, when this all blew up. But I want to see how they and the rest of Europe handle this. If they go the usual apeasement route, then they can keep there buttery cookies and gooey cheeses. If they handle it with some guts, that will be a different story.

    Excellent point Dawn, and something I will watch out for too. However, based on Jyllands-Posten statement in response and other things I have read from Danish leaders it appears, at least for now, that they aren't taking the well-tread appeasement route. Buy Danish!

    It's funny though, I had read the Jyllands-Posten response a couple of days ago and read it as appeasement. I went back and looked at it again after your response, maybe you're right. I hope so.

    I've heard responses from a few of the Euro gov'ts and it sounds encouraging. But words are one thing and action quite another.

    I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for now. Maybe tonight I'll go buy that Danish cheese I love so much. Still won't buy French, though. Of course, they've already knuckled under by firing the editor at the paper that ran the cartoons.

    Well, of course, still not buying French goes without question...LOL.

  5. Before you start praising the French please note that the
    French editor who published the cartoons was fired. No real backbone there.

  6. Great blog. I stole some of your post and put it on mine. I visited on Blog explosion and didn't have your link or I would have posted it.

    I had done a piece and a Muslim I know went stupid in the comments. He went after Jews, Israel and the United States because of his deep rooted hatred he can't seem to get over. He even made mention that he reads history instead of chasing hookers like I do which is a absolute lie and he knows it.

    He feels that if he tosses crap up at the ceiling something may stick and someone may believe what he says.

    Thanks

    In your list of Muslim attrocities committed, you left out the bombing of the U.S. embassy in Kenya by Bin Laden in 1998. 200 were killed, mostly Kenyans.

    I completely agree, but there was one thing in there about the French not having any backbone that I did not like at all. You ranted about the racism and prejudice of a group of people and then you insult the French?

    He is not being racist or whatnot against the French, you idiot (cam). It's just that they never have anyone's back when it's most needed because they would rather eat croissants. Get a grip! I could give 2 shits if a muslim is offended by anything in this country! Fricken ignore it and move on with your allah mukbar bullshit! A lot offends me here too, but I just ignore it and move on (what a brilliant concept huh?). The problem with these people is they think the world owes everything to them. While their living in a poverty- war ridden dump of a country(s) (that they made mind you) they have the privilege of being welcomed into our country. If they want to come they need to learn to assimilate into our culture, not the other way around. RRrrg,.. these people anger me so much. I have to go to confession now.
    In high school who ever was muslim and what not, they could do their 5 daily prayers banging their head on the ground praising allah, but as a Catholic do you think I would be allowed to make the sign of the cross in front of these people before a meal minding my own business? Heck no, I'd probably be expelled.

    The muslims need to wake up and realize its not muhammad that redeems them, it is the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    Most of the religious believers always want to prove their way is the only way to haven. To me it is another form of discrimination against other belief. It's not the religion that kill, it's a small group of people who want to have everything hand to them or else using violence to get to their goals.

    The big 3 of Judaism, Christianity, Islam all of sacred text about making of images of God. Islam takes this very seriously. It wouldn't hurt us to watch out how we are using our images. It is after all very offensive to Islam.

    I am sure there are some Muslims that are honest to goodness nice people that are sticken by the violence that their religion has caused.

    Somehow THEY need to distance themselves from those who commit such crimes. I have heard the a good portion of Muslims in the US do not think Muslims carried out the 911 attack. That would be a good starting point of separating the good from those who need not live in America. Running over your daughter with a car and killing her because she is too "Western" ? Throwing grenades into the tents of fellow soldiers? A shooting rampage on a US military base?

    How can CAIR look themselves in the mirror unless they are part of a big conspiracy? Wake up America.

    My two cents: Respect, dignity and honor are earned in this world by practice and interaction with people. When Prophet Mohammad spread Islam in Arab, he was offended and insulted many times but he set and example to forgive and move on. The true spirit of Islam teaches that revenge is driven from personal ego and ego is forbidden in Islam. If Islam is the righteous word of God and Mohammad is the true messenger, then no words or caricatures can defame Islam.

    I'd be more inclined to feel for offended Muslims, if the notion were not so absurd. The hypocrisy of these complaints is patently obvious in the face of hundreds, if not thousands of anti-Semitic, anti-Jewish, anti-Israel cartoons that appear daily in what passes for the press across the Arab world. You'll get our respect when you earn it by your actions. Likely never.

    i dont think we should anger billions of muslims just because there are some radicals within them. no moderate muslim supports terrorism i can guarantee that. but is it not also terrorism for countries like Israel to attack a whole city because there may be 3 insurgents in there. i read an article a few days ago about Israel retaliating to a bomb that injured no one, by killing 20 civilians. that is terrorism. Also if the person who committed the VT shootings in 2007 happened to be chinese i wouldn't make it out to be like all chinese are gun slinging idiots
