Teddy-Bear Intifada - Hypocritical and Hyper-Sensitive Muslims

Reader comment on item: Not Child's Play: The Teddy-Bear Intifada

Submitted by Matt (United States), Dec 3, 2007 at 12:09

So what have we learned from this "teddy-bear intifada"? Namely that Muslims are hypocritical and hyper-sensitive. Hypocritical in three major ways: They have no problem offending Jews and Christians. Secondly, they have no problem naming their boys Mohammed. Finally, they are insensitive to other cultures, but other cultures must be hyper-sensitive to the needs of Muslims.

Muslims are hyper-sensitive in that the entire world must be tuned in to the nuances of Middle East culture. We must understand the culture of each and every Muslim country, and do nothing to offend. Apologies NOT accepted.
