The Koran Riots in Afghanistan: An Indictment of All Islam

7 United Nations workers were murdered by a crowd of angry Muslims in Afghanistan during protests organized by religious leaders. The clerics drove through the city of Mazar-i-Sharif with loud speakers, demanding that Muslims “protest” the burning of a Koran by a Florida pastor.
Two of the UN workers were beheaded.
The leftist media here is placing the blame squarely on Koran burner Terry Jones while desperately clinging to the myth of the peaceful Muslim protest that “just got out of control”–no doubt hijacked by a that tiny minority of extremists the media thinks is responsible for over 1,000 years of Islamic Imperialism. But when the Left here makes excuses for Muslim barbarity they ignore reality and the internal drives of unreformed Islam that make Muslims predisposed to mayhem and violence.
There is no other religious group on Earth that murders and rapes more people whenever they feel attacked and insulted nor is there one that attacks and insults other religions as regularly. While the Muslims in Afghanistan murdered innocent people because one man in Florida burned a Koran, Saudi authorities tortured and arrested two Indian Christians for praying. During the arrest Saudi religious police trampled the victims’ Bibles and tore the holy books.
Where are the Christian riots? How many people will be murdered in retaliation for Saudi Arabian religious police desecrating Bibles?
Malaysian authorities desecrated Bibles headed to their country’s Christians, but so far there have been no mass murders by Christians there. Why is that?
The Fogel Family massacre was celebrated by Palestinian Muslims who passed out sweets in joyous revelry over the butchering of Jewish children. Does anyone remember Jews worldwide attacking Muslim families in protest?
Of course not, because Jews and Christians are part of a Western moral tradition that seeks to rise above barbarity. Even hate cults like the Westboro Baptists don’t murder their critics and the Branch Davidians only took up arms when they believed they were backed into a corner–and had never terrorized their neighbors. Our religious extremists are less prone to violence that the average Muslim in any Islamic country.
But Islam doesn’t just fall short morally when measured against other Abrahamic faiths. In religiously pluralistic America we have many examples of religions being slandered or insulted but no examples of a religion’s adherents taking to the streets en masse to rape, pillage and kill because their collective feelings were hurt.
In 1987 Martin Sheen stared in the extremely racist anti-Voodoo film “The Believers” which was literally a Castroite screed designed to excuse communist oppression of African Diaspora religions. Yet as slanderous as the film was, there were no mobs of Voodoo worshipers on the streets burning down movie theaters at the behest of their priests and priestesses. Martin Sheen was not targeted for death.
How is it that the Left in America and the leftist media can promote a narrative where rampaging Muslims are considered better neighbors than the Haitian immigrant who simply wants to to sacrifice the occasional chicken while praying for a sick relative to get better?
Even the West’s devil worshipers are more law abiding than the Muslim street.
