Quote of the Day

"It is a complete delusion to believe that the major source of our problem today is something called "Islamophobia." No: the problem is terrorism and tyranny propagated under the banner of Islam. Without that, no Danish cartoon could have been conceived of, let alone published. That is the real and far more blatant blasphemy. If 10,000 angry Muslims had marched in London after the bombing of a major mosque in Iraq, I'd be impressed. But they didn't. Until they do, the West has nothing to apologize for. The Muslim world needs to take the beam out of its own eye, before it removes the speck from the West's."

I think what's really lost in this is that besides a couple of really inflammatory and inappropriate drawings, there were some cartoons that provided very appropriate commentary that should have provoked a more reasonable dialogue.

Oh... and the fact that THIS IS NEWS and yet the media still goes to great lengths to censor any display of the cartoons... Friday night on NBC nightly news they actually used the same censoring fuzzy circle they use in COPS! I don't know who should be insulted more, The show Cops or me the sucker watching the stupid news program.
