Muslims get all the good press!

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict

Submitted by Stephen Phillips (United States), Oct 2, 2006 at 19:54

What "frantic anti-Islamic wind that is blowing so hard at the present time" are you referring to? If I were to shut off my brain and rely on the media (western and arab) for my knowledge I would think that Islam was the greatest invention since the internet. If I were to search the media for negative views of Islam, I would be better off finding streets paved with gold in south central. Muslims don't get nearly as much negative press as they deserve. The media reserves such hateful treatment for Israel. I wish the media would create some fresh, new "misunderstood victims." This muslim song and dance is getting old. I wouldn't have a problem feeling sorry for terrorists but the probem is: THEY'RE TERRORISTS!
