“Sparks sure fly when the premodern world of religious piety and the postmodern world of Monty Python collide.”Says Victor David Hanson. Further:
«Stunned, European diplomats have tried in vain to explain to Arab ambassadors that, in the West, governments neither own nor muzzle an often unwise and tasteless press. Hurt feelings and much worse are the price we are supposed to pay for free expression so central to consensual government. Hindus, Christians, Buddhists, Jews or Muslims in secular democracies simply don't burn foreign embassies when their faith is impugned in the free press.»Indeed our very own American idiots have spoken the loudest, and eclipsing the reasoned words from the White House and State Department. The Danes, and indeed anyone else defending the Enlightenment in Europe are in fact waiting patiently for support from the EU 3 and the US, only to find Al Gore engaging in treason:
«"The thoughtless way in which visas are now handled, that is a mistake," Gore said during the Jiddah Economic Forum. "The worst thing we can possibly do is to cut off the channels of friendship and mutual understanding between Saudi Arabia and the United States."For his benefit, never mind the fact that Gore is lie-ing. Most of the 9-11 hijackers were Saudis, and that a few thousand people in lower Manhattan, (now deceased,) would have benefited greatly from some scrutiny. Instead he plays the lefty shell game: emotions, not actions (and the intentions behind those acts) are not just comparable, but those unconscious feelings are the goal, if not the tool of his concept of government. Just to put things in perspective, it’s also the tool charismatic despots use when their thirst for power is accompanied by a need to be loved.
Gore told the largely Saudi audience, many of them educated at U.S. universities, that Arabs in the United States had been "indiscriminately rounded up, often on minor charges of overstaying a visa or not having a green card in proper order, and held in conditions that were just unforgivable."»
Other morons still, are shamefully baiting abroad for their own domestic leverage at home.
«Schroeder's call was linked to the row raging around the world over the printing of cartoons of Prophet Mohammed(S), which Muslims consider as blasphemous. "European integration is built upon the foundation of respect of other cultures, tolerance and the recognition of diversity," Schroeder told the seventh annual edition of the forum, whose theme is: "Honoring Identity and Celebrating common grounds."...as if leftists didn’t hate and fear religion at home, much as they can’t grasp the tenets of Western civilization. That include their freedom to peck it to death to maintain their political currency.
"This includes refraining from acts that hurt honest religious sentiment.»
