"This is an OUTRAGE! A VILE piece af slander! I demand to know the source of these allegations!"

Here's something I got by email this morning.

This was written on Feb 4th by anonymous

We wake up this morning to see video on CNN showing rampaging Muslims around the world. In Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific Rim .. Muslim Mobs spreading mayhem. It seems that these mighty mad Muslims are rioting and firing their ever-present AK-47s into the air because of cartoons. Yup ... this latest epidemic of Muslim outrage comes to us because some newspapers in Norway and Denmark published some cartoons depicting Mohammed.

Muslim outrage huh. OK ... let's do a little historical review. Just some low lights:

* 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.
* Let's go way back. Muslims kidnap and kill athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics.
* No Muslim outrage.
* Muslims fire rocket-propelled grenades into schools full of children in Israel.
* No Muslim outrage.
* Muslims murder more than 50 commuters in attacks on London subways and busses. Over 700 are injured.
* No Muslim outrage.
* Muslims massacre dozens of innocents at a Passover Seder.
* No Muslim outrage.
* Muslims murder innocent vacationers in Bali.
* 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.
* Newspapers in Denmark and Norway publish cartoons depicting Mohammed.
* Muslims are outraged.

Dead children. Dead tourists. Dead teachers. Dead doctors and nurses. Death, destruction and mayhem 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.

Come on, is this really about cartoons? They're rampaging and burning flags. They're looking for Europeans to kidnap. They're 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 Islamic jihadist culture to be outraged. You don't really need a reason. You just need an excuse. Wandering around, destroying property, murdering children, firing guns into the air and feigning outrage over the slightest perceived insult is to a jihadist what tailgating is to a Steeler's fan.

I know and understand that these bloodthirsty murderers do not represent the majority of the world's Muslims. When, though, do they become outraged? When do they take to the streets to express their outrage at the radicals who are making their religion the object of worldwide hatred and ridicule? 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?"

Indeed. Why not?

The possibility that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.

An excellent piece on this situation. It's frustrating that the world is sitting back and being all PC so the muslims can rampage.

This is a great piece, and I'll link to it on my web site. It represents a perspective I really don't think about; the passive acceptance. The Muslim community has an obligation to speak out about all these tyrannies, and yet, they do nothing. Great post!

That was well said.

Only 4 comments? No Muslim outrage.

My Post about Manila? The Muqata gets targeted by millions of angry moslem bloggers.

Is there no rhyme or reason to our existance?!

General question: Do you provide attributions for your quotes somewhere? Or is trying to guess part of your blog's mystique? I recognize some of them (loved the Star Wars one from a few posts ago!) but not all.
