Mohammad, you share the duplicity

Mohammad, you share the duplicity of your namesake. When Ahmadi Najad spoke his distateful words about the Holocaust, what was the reaction of the west. Did we take to the streets in anarchy and destruction. Did we threaten death to all muslims? No.

Did we like it. No. We certainly told whoever would listen that the ignorant words of a broken man are offensive and should not be listened to, but we did it peacefully. That, my friend is the big difference between me and you. When you offend me it ticks me off and makes me angry. When I offend you, you want to kill me. Not literally, but you know what I mean.
