The Religion of Eternal Outrage

Anything works as pretext for Muslims to show how lovely Islam is.

  • Cairo, May 2011: An answer to the burial of Osama Bin Laden in the sea following "Islamic rituals" in a clear attempt to appease Islam (Sun-Times):
Muslim clerics said Monday that Osama bin Laden’s burial at sea was a violation of Islamic tradition that may further provoke militant calls for revenge attacks against American targets. …“The Americans want to humiliate Muslims through this burial, and I don’t think this is in the interest of the U.S. administration,” said Omar Bakri Mohammed, a radical cleric in Lebanon.
  • Afghanistan, April 2011: An obscure Pastor in rural USA burned one copy of the Koran. Nearly two weeks later, Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the "desecration" e Imams called upon the faithful to protest (HotAir; UN Dispatch) . Thousands stormed UN compounds in Herat and Mazar-i-Sharif killing seven foreign UN employees who had nothing to do with the Koran burning (FOX). The irony is that the fire that followed the attack ended burning Korans.
