Muslim a-holes

There has been a big stink about some cartoons in a Danish paper recently, too much of a stink for me, showing Islam in an unfavorable light. So, this is what it takes to get the moderate Muslim community outraged- a few cartoons mocking the religion? Where was the Muslim outrage over this:

...Interesting that the picture above looks stunningly similar to the one a few shots below. I wonder which one is the original and which one is a victim of Photoshop. Thanks to my friend Chris for pointing this out.




This small group of Muslims make the rest of them look bad. But the silence of the Muslim majority over crap like this, not to mention the suicide bombing of innocent women and children, church bombings, or beheadings, is deafening.


  1. Meantime, the right wing needs to concede that freedom of speech does not mean it's a good idea to use sacrilege and blasphemy to criticize people with whom we have, shall we say, philosophical differences. Two wrongs don't make a right, it makes a mess.

  2. Right wing, as in Danish cartoonists?

    I don't associate nor sympathize with with either the cartoonists or the terrorists nor the pissed off muslims who are bombing buildings in retaliation.

    It is sad that you turn everything in to a left-wing/right-wing debate. These cartoons weren't printed in U.S. papers, were they? Perhaps they were picked up after the controversy. I don't know. But right-wingers aren't the only ones interested in freedom of speech.

    Why can't we say that these people are fucked up for what they did and not associate it with a party? I belong to neither side and think both the cartoonists and terrorists are wrong.

    My issue is not that some unsavory cartoons were drawn. My issue is that it took a cartoon to roust the Muslims? Why didn't they get pissed off at all the other horrific bullshit terrorists/jihadists have, over the last 50 years, committed in the name of Islam?

    Philosopical differences and freedom of speech go hand-in-hand. Ironic, isn't it, when using your parallel that people shouldn't bust on Islam for being a religion full of crazy assholes who blow stuff up to see that's exactly what happened when the cartoons came out.
