A WHOLE LOT OF MUSLIMS ARE BAD PEOPLE
A WHOLE LOT OF MUSLIMS ARE BAD PEOPLE
A cranky opinion for
CRANKY OPINION SATURDAY
The following is the opinion of a cranky
old man with very little knowledge on the subject opined.Opposing opinions are welcome.They will be ignored, but they are
welcome.And please, as always, no name
calling.That means you, you big fat
I really don’t
like to comment on religious issues, but I just have a problem finding the
murder of French cartoonists in the name of Allah to be an act in the name of
I am also
tired of hearing that these are the acts of a small minority and that the vast
majority of Muslims are peace loving people.
Yes they are.The vast majority of Muslims are peace loving
and peaceful…quietly peaceful.Much like
the peaceful but quiet Germans when millions of Jews were sent to death
camps.Much like peaceful but quiet
Russians when Stalin and Lenin murdered millions of Russian citizens;much
like many peaceful but quiet people throughout the ages.I get it. I would probably be a coward as well, in the face
of brutal executions and beheadings.
What I don’t
get is the constant reminder that the majority of Muslims are peaceful and that
Islam is the religion of peace.Sorry,
but while people are being brutally murdered for NOT being a member of the Religion
of Peace or for drawing a cartoon that you don’t like, then thepeaceful majority is irrelevant.Don’t
speak out against the radicals…I understand, but stop trying to balance their
brutality with your demand that we concentrate on the peace loving non-radicals.
is the comparison to fundamentalist Christians who picket abortion
clinics.I disagree with their position,
but I understand it is a legitimate religious position that they feel morally
obligated to act upon.You could say the
same for radical Islam.The mocking cartoons are offensive to
them.It is important for them to voice
their disapproval.However, except for a
rare abortion doctor murder (loudly condemned by Christians) fundamentalist
Christians find peaceful if sometimes irritating methods to voice their disapproval.They are hardly the equivalent of Isis and Al
is the issue of these cartoons.The ones
I see are of stereotype Arabs with head wrapping that represent Muslims.
but I don’t see them as representing THE PROPHIT Mohammed.Sometimes they even refer to the characters
as “Mohammed.”I’m guessing that if you browsed through a phone book in Yemen you would find more than a few “Mohammeds.”
When a white
lunatic climbs a tower and starts firing on innocent pedestrians, we don’t see
newspapers reminding us that the vast majority of Post Office workers are peace
loving people.When a disturbed kid
takes a gun to school and indiscriminately guns down his fellow students, we
don’t see newspapers reminding us that the vast majority of school children do
not gun down their fellow students.
I think it
is fair, proper and the obligation of the media to point out that a whole lot of
Muslims are hell bent on killing anyone who does not follow what they believe,that a whole lot of Muslims like their misogynistic
culture, rejoice in beheadings and murder, and take pride in violence in the
name of their God.A whole lot of
Muslims want to take over the world and establish their own state which allows
only their thoughts and their beliefs.
do not want what a whole lot of Muslims want, but we need to address the “Whole
lot of Muslims.” The vast majority of
Muslims are irrelevant. They are peace
loving, fine people, but for now, they are irrelevant.
