Peaceful and Tolerant Religion of Islam Outraged!!!

Muslims are outraged and rioting around the world in Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific Rim. So what are they so upset about? Are they finally upset and outraged that their religion has been hijacked by a bunch of extremists who perform violent acts against humanity? Nope, it seems that these Muslims are rioting and causing mayhem because of cartoons. Yeppers, this Muslim outrage comes to us because some newspapers in Norway and Denmark published some cartoons depicting Mohammad as a suicide bomber.

Oh the inhumanity of drawing cartoons!!! Let’s take a quick look back and see the inhumane acts committed by, do I dare say Muslims…

· Muslims fly commercial airliners into buildings in New York City. No Muslim outrage.
· Muslim officials block the exit where school girls are trying to escape a burning building because their faces were exposed. No Muslim outrage.
· Muslims cut off the heads of three teenaged girls on their way to school in Indonesia. A Christian school. No Muslim outrage.
· Muslims murder teachers trying to teach Muslim children in Iraq. No Muslim outrage.
· Muslims murder over 80 tourists with car bombs outside cafes and hotels in Egypt. No Muslim outrage.
· A Muslim attacks a missionary children's school in India. Kills six. No Muslim outrage.
· Muslims slaughter hundreds of children and teachers in Beslan, Russia. Muslims shoot children in the back. No Muslim outrage.
· Muslims murder more than 50 commuters in attacks on London subways and busses. Over 700 are injured. No Muslim outrage.
· Muslim newspapers publish anti-Semitic cartoons. No Muslim outrage
· Muslims are involved, on one side or the other, in almost every one of the 125+ shooting wars around the world. No Muslim outrage.
· Muslims beat the charred bodies of Western civilians with their shoes, then hang them from a bridge. No Muslim outrage.

The Islamic religion has been hijacked by extremist who have inflicted death, destruction and violent crimes against humanity around the world at the hands of Muslims .. no Muslim outrage ... but publish a cartoon depicting Mohammed with a bomb in his turban and all hell breaks loose.

Folks, this has very little to do about cartoons. The cartoons is nothing more than a excuse for the Muslims to riot and cause mayhem. They're rampaging through the streets burning flags, looking for Europeans to kidnap, calling for the beheading of the creator of these cartoons, threatening innkeepers and generally raising holy Muslim hell not because of any outrage over a cartoon. They're outraged because it is part of the jihadist culture to be outraged. You don't really need a reason. You just need an excuse.

I know that these savages do not represent all of the world's Muslims. When, though, do the descent non-extremist Muslims become outraged? When do they take to the streets to express their outrage at the radicals who have hijacked their religion, holding it hostage and committing atrocities in its name. Islamic writer Salman Rushdie wrote of these silent Muslims in a New York Times article three years ago. "As their ancient, deeply civilized culture of love, art and philosophical reflection is hijacked by paranoiacs, racists, liars, male supremacists, tyrants, fanatics and violence junkies, why are they not screaming?"

Seems like a question that needs answered.

Rushdie also wrote this column after 9-11, Yes, This Is About Islam.

I have said it before and I will say it again. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but so far all terrorists have been Muslim.
