What outrages Muslims v. What Doesn't

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: about the jyllands-Posten cartoons

This series of cartoons which include a depiction of Mohammed with a turban -bomb causes outrage among Muslims. It provokes threats by Muslims against Danish nationals or even Arabs working for Danish countries, an immediate discarding of all Danish products from stores and a threat to void all contracts with Danish companies ( Saudi Arabia) , even rejecting Danish foreign aid programs ( Egypt) - at least for the moment.


Now where is the comparable Muslim reaction of even one tenth of this hysteria when it concerns Muslim acts of terror all over the world. In Israel, Bali, Spain, England, Argentina, the US, Turkey, Sudan, Iraq etc,. we witness horrible murders of totally innocent men, women and children by Muslims in the name of Allah and Islam.

We are subjected to videos of beheadings of captive hostages by their Islamic tormentors. The Spanish police audio surveillance tapes of the Madrid terrorists watching the beheading of a Jew and screaming blood chilling ovations was disgusting. It was inhuman, degenerate behavior but no "outrage" by the Muslims community at that and other videos.

In Iraq we have to read daily about schools, funerals, weddings and even mosques - all full of people who happen to be the wrong kind of Muslims blown up by those who speak for Islam. The news calls it an "insurgency". It is plain unadulterated premeditated mass murder.

In Darfur, we have a genocide by Muslims of other Muslims whose crime is they are too dark. And the Arab League together with the Arab block in the UN makes sure that criticism and action against Sudan doesn't amount to much. And so we have Racism, another aspect of Islamic jihad. Racism and Genocide and Muslims are silent because these horrors are actions by Muslims.

In Israel, after "successful operation" meaning a suicide-homicide bomber killing the elderly or infants or women - it really doesn't matter as long as they are Jews, the Arab populations celebrate! Not even Nazis celebrated the ovens. On 9/11 these same people handed out "sweets" on their streets to celebrate the murders in NYC.

It is precisely the Muslim lack of outrage at all of those murderous acts time after time that lead to these cartoons.

This lack of outrage is proof that Muslims either stand by in apathy or in support of Islamic terror campaigns.

Amazingly then these cartoons focus on exactly the Muslim silence [at best] and cheering [at worst] these murders by human suicide bomb of people everywhere in the name of Islam.
