Excuses, Excuses...





Recently a Danish newspaper printed pictures of "Allah" that Muslims around the world found "offensive". These pictures (as you see one on the right) are offensive but the picture Above... That's fine, its in Allah's honor that this was done. Nicholas Bergs head held up for the whole world to see is fine because its in the favor of Allah, this is what he would want to have done to all us evil infidels. These cartoons of Allah are a pure excuse for a perceived anger to boil up once again. The media says these protests are incited by a 'fringe" portion of Islam. I have a hard time arguing against someone today that asks, "fringe? Its not fringe its mainstream Islam". It may not be to the point where mainstream Islam engages in violence but it certainly to a point where the "mainstream" doesn't denounce it. Recently a artist in America drew a picture depicting Osama Bin Laden as Jesus ( if you search "artist depicts bin laden as Jesus" you'll surely find it, I couldn't get it to upload). Should I as a believer in Christ want that person dead? Should I torch the museum that hung the picture? Should masses of Christians march through the streets and destroy life and property? This is exactly what's happening with the Allah cartoons. The hypocrisy here is breathtaking. One cannot poke fun at Allah, but one can surely behead and kill innocent children in his name. This conduct is acceptable. Muslims believe these cartoons may be "blasphemous". This may be, I don't argue that one could be upset by them, but is it not blasphemous to take the teachings of Allah and twist and contort them to fit some evil ideology? Is it not blasphemous to kill in his name? These are the real issues, but governments around the world are so afraid of a reactionary Muslim Ummah that they will bend over backwards to not hurt feelings. Take our news agencies for instance. CNN has no problem showing the Virgin Mary depicted and made out of elephant shit, That's right elephant shit, but will not post the cartoons of Allah "out of respect for Islam"(http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1572298/posts). Check it out. Should we rush to burn CNN down? The hypocrisy as stated before is mindnumbing. Tell the Muslims that its a damn cartoon, done in poor taste surely, but a damn cartoon nonetheless. What a pathetic display of what's wrong with mainstream Islam today. Damn you to hell if you draw Allah in a cartoon or poke fun at him but on the other hand 72 virgins await you if you behead infidels and try oh Muslim as well as you can to Islamizes the earth for this is the ultimate goal! , paradise awaits! So lets not worry about a religion that has 1.6 billion adherents. Lets not wory that violent terrorism is becoming more and more acceptable to this religion, lets worry about some damn Danish cartoon. This will show the Muslims we care, we understand, then maybe they'll like us and not want to take over the planet.... How pathetic...
