in response to reader comment: probably one of the most ignorant things i've read in my entire life!

Douggie in Australia writes "I do not know from where you got your insparation to write your extremist anti-islamic article, but i'm guessing neither do you, as what you are suggesting is utterly ludicrous and you clearly have no concept of what a real muslim is".

Well Douggie, here's where folks like me get our "insparation" (sic). In the past fifty years, the Western world has seen an escalating stream of Muslims committing cowardly, shameful and horrible crimes against innocent civilians, all while professing their adoration for Allah. These attacks have taken many forms, including the murder of women and children in Beslan and Moscow, as well as over 3,000 innocents on 9/11.

Of critical importance, no such massacres are taking place in the name of anyone else's faith. It is only the children of Islam who seem to find reason to commit wholesale slaughter in the name of their god on a disturbingly regular basis. Despite the rivers of blood, our so called moderate Muslim friends have remained oddly silent in their condemnation of the evil perpetrators. In the few instances where mainstream Muslims publically condemened an act of barbarism committed by one of their coreligionists, the condemnation was, almost invariably qualified by statements of understanding and solidarity for the murderous Muhammadian animals who commited the atrocity.

"Well yes, Ali and Hassan did blow up a bus full of small children, but you see, they did so to protest the injustices done to the poor Palestinians. So, they had a good reason."

Instead of booting these jerks out of our country once and for all, we let these Muslim apologistas get away with dishonoring the memory of the murdered. Perhaps that is the greatest obscenity of all. Because in our tolerance of the "moderate" Muslim's right to express solidarity with the murderers, we tacitly sanction new Islamic horrors, yet to come.

So what does it take to incite Muslims to passionate hysteria? Certainly not the murder of thousands upon thousands of non-Muslim civilians. Instead, what gets these people hot is the publication of a cartoon in a Danish newspaper. For that, the children of Islam will run crazy in the streets, filled with rabid vitriole, and ready to tear to pieces the Christian slime who dared besmirch their pedophile demigod Muhammad. Does anyone else see anything wrong with this picture?

So no, Dougie, I don't care how many "nice" Muslims there are in Australia or anywhere else. As far as I'm concerned, Islam, ANY form of Islam, is basically a 12th Century cult of death posing as "religion". So let those who follow Allah practice their "religion-of-peace" in one of several dozen countries of the world where Islam is the predominant realpolitik. You can usually spot one of these gems by the screams of little girls being declitorized, or women swaddled in black cloth from head to toe, or men being whipped till they bleed for their failure to conform to a 12th Century dress code. My tolerance for Islam went up in smoke, once and for all, along with 3,000 innocents on 9/11.

So call me ignorant, or intolerant, or whatever else you like. Perhaps when Australia experiences its own 9/11 you'll sing a different tune.
