Pegging the Irony Meter

In a shocking development, Muslims all over the world are incensed at Pope Benedict. They're just seething at the unfairness of his remarks.
"Anyone who describes Islam as a religion as intolerant encourages violence," [Pakistani] Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam said.
Sadly, she's quite correct.

Tolerance, the new crutch word of terrorists and demoncrats. No tolerant man could tolerate, and don’t you dare accuse them of being violent or else they will accuse you of being an intolerant bigoted racist homophobe and then throw you in jail AND KILL YOU.

Anyone who describes Islam as intolerant will pay, because Islam will intolerantly react with violence. It’s like someone becoming furious when they are told they have a problem temper. Islamics have no qualms besmirching all other forms of religion and culture, but they have a zero tolerance when it comes to anyone offering criticism of Islam.

"It is not helpful (because) we have been trying to bridge the gap, calling for dialogue and understanding between religions."
Yes, between beheadings and demands that the western religions recant and accept Islam they have been trying to promote dialogue and understanding so we will fit into our proper place once we embrace the true religion.

This is what the Vatican had to say about the Jyllands Posten "Danish Cartoons" incident:

"The freedom of thought and expression, confirmed in the Declaration of Human Rights, can not include the right to offend religious feelings of the faithful. That principle obviously applies to any religion," the Vatican said.

"Any form of excessive criticism or derision of others denotes a lack of human sensitivity and can in some cases constitute an unacceptable provocation," it said in a statement issued in response to media demands for the Church’s opinion.

At least noone has issued a fatwah against the Pope. Yet. But it wouldn’t hurt to give the Swiss Guards a bit more firepower.

Sounds like another case of a loud minority.

I wonder what would be said if christians reacted the same way muslims do when people like the iranian president call us infidels.

Would there be news stories of calling the muslims intollerant?

It does the world and muslims specifically zero good- and much harm- to tread on eggshells around them, and to treat them with respect and acomodation that they don’t deserve.

Muslims owe the world 50 apologies for every 1 they think they’re owed

Perhaps someone should teach Muslims the old "Sticks and stones..." thing. It seems to work on other children. Anyone who is so worried about what some old man in a dress thousands of miles away says about them has some serious self-image problems, in spite of all the bluster about "ancient civilizations" blah, blah, blah. Massive and prolonged therapy is the only answer. Call it colonization if you wish, I think of it as involuntary commitment because the subjects are a danger to themselves and others. Sedate the whole region; Afghanistan alone can probably supply most of the necessary medication.
