Lebanese protesters torch Danish mission - Mideast/N. Africa - MSNBC.com
Is this complete and utter madness or what. Is the finest example of human evolution? Muslims around the world wonder why their image suffers from the blight of negatively and is forever tainted with the stain of violence and intolerance need look no further than the events of the past week to enlighten them.
In many ways Muslims (mostly men) are still laboring in the 11th century, believing that their religion is beyond reproach and or the critical or satirical pen(s) of the world. So while thousand of Muslims take to the streets in all over the world in protest of a cartoon(?!), and acting like Jr. High School bullies walking hand-n-hand with elementary school babies throwing a tantrum, the West (and any sane person) looks on again and roundly condemns such tomfoolery.
