Hypocrisy

Reader comment on item: Mocking Muhammad Is Not Hate Speech

Submitted by Sheryl Dworkin (United States), Sep 25, 2012 at 12:46

Good for you! I have been wondering why nobody who has talked about the ugliness of the video, along with the ugliness of the riots, from the President through the Secretary of State to anybody else who has weighed in on this outrageous reaction, has had the backbone to point out the utter hypocrisy of this behavior.

The anti-Christian, anti-semitic and anti-West hatred that spews from the media in the middle east, from government-backed news media to television airings of anti-semitic movies, is repulsive, but nobody here riots over it. It it beyond time for the double standard to stop and for these guys to get a minimal grip on living on a crowded globe. If they cannot stand hearing negative things about their prophet, they need to look in the mirror as to their own behavior first. Please keep up the good work.
