Religion of Peace, My Arse II

THREATS, THREATS and THREATS from the "Religion of Peace" --
If Islam was a religion of peace, it would not be issuing threats;
If Moslems were a peaceful people, they would not be murdering innocent men, women, and children;
Someday, maybe, Moslems and Islam will mature into a respectable religion, but for now, they are nothing but a DEATH CULT, which worships SATAN (ALLAH).

This point is emphasized once again in an editorial entitled “Playing With Fire” from today’s Arab News. This time it’s the German Interior Minister whose knees are being figuratively broken:

statement by Germany’s Interior Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble that
European newspapers should reprint the controversial Danish cartoons of
the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as a show of support for press
freedom is astounding.

It is difficult to believe that a
supposedly responsible and politically astute politician could say
something so irresponsible and dangerous — and Schaeuble is supposedly
both. More to the point, Schaeuble knows perfectly well that there are
hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide to whom the cartoons are not
merely deeply offensive but an outrage. He also knows perfectly well
what happened when the cartoons were first published — the wave of
violent protest worldwide two years ago that resulted in dozens of
people killed in riots and Danish embassies destroyed. The decision by
Danish papers to reprint the most offensive of the cartoons has already
led to Egypt protesting to Denmark, Iranian MPs demanding action
against the country, mass demonstrations in Sudan and riots by outraged
Muslims in Denmark itself.

Schaeuble cannot, therefore, claim
that he did not realize the consequences of what he said or that he has
been naive. This is no mere mistake or case of insensitivity. He knows
the massive damage to Germany that can result from what he said —
boycotts of German products, mass protests across the world, German
diplomats in danger, embassies under attack — yet still he said it. He
is being deliberately provocative.
