Too rich to pass up…
 
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – Afghanistan’s government said Tuesday that Newsweek should be held responsible for damages caused by deadly anti-American demonstrations after the magazine alleged U.S. desecration of the Quran, and it suggested that foreign forces may have helped turn protests violent.
 
Pakistan joined the international criticism of the magazine’s article and said Newsweek’s apology and retraction were “not enough.”  – MyWay News
 
 
And from the Daily Star, a Lebanese paper, this statement,
“They (Newsweek) should understand the sentiments of Muslims and think 101 times before publishing news which hurt feelings of Muslims.”–Pakistani Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad
Well, pardon me, bubba, but how about sentiments of Christians when Islamic camel lovers used pages from Bibles as toilet paper after taking (and trashing) the Church of the Nativity in 2002? Oh.  No riots and murders by Christians as retaliation?  Maybe that’s because one of the differences between Islam and Christianity is that the normative influence of Christianity is toward more civilized behavior and the normative influence of Islam is toward brutality and barbarity.
 
Gee, I’m really concerned about the sensitivity of Islamic barbarians who murder women for walking without a keeper or for having been forceably raped. Blech.  Let them eat cake.  Made with pork fat.  (And may they choke.)
 
[UPDATE: more sympathy for the devil(s)]
 
The Wall Stree Journal’s Claudia Rossett offers a little perspective:
 

“Let’s pause right there. We are hearing that Muslims, infuriated by a report of blasphemy, went on violent rampages that resulted in . . . dead Muslims and burned mosques. Meanwhile, not only is Newsweek apologizing and retracting, but the U.S. government is regretting the loss of life.”

 
Yeh.  Concerned about desecration of their so-called “holy book” Muslim savages… kill other Muslims and burn mosques (in which we must assume no Korans were kept, eh?). Here’s a little sympathy for these devils: Give ’em all C4 suppositories.
