Is it just me or are you getting fed up with the news coverage of these cartoon riots in the Middle East?
Being politically correct is one thing, but giving a free pass to these radicals is just irresponsible. Isn't it time news commentators and other reasoned souls across the world started calling these people the freaks that they are?
They are, after all, burning down buildings because a cartoon suggested that Islam has become a religion associated with bombings.
Oh, Gee. Stop the presses.
And while we're at it, let's stop lying about how Muslim radicals are a small, misguided group of violent renegades who have perverted the true meaning of Islam.
I actually believed that Urban Media Legend until Palestinian election results handed Hamas a landslide victory. Hamas is, after all, an ultra-violent terrorist organization who has spent the last decade blowing up little children at bus stops and grandmoms in public markets.
And through it all, Western commentators keep blaming US foreign policy for these thugs' murderous acts.
Time Magazine predictably suggested Arab rioters have turned on us because of Iraq.
I thought we went into Iraq after 19 Muslim extremists killed 3,000 innocent Americans on September 11th.
And after Muslim extremists killed American troops aboard the USS Cole.
And after Muslim extremists killed American troops at Khobar Towers.
And I was just sure those African Embassies were blown up by Muslim radicals before we went into Iraq.
And unless I am really getting my dates confused, I thought Muslim radicals also tried to blow up the World Trade Center in 1993 -- a full decade before we ousted Saddam Hussein.
Come to think of it, radical Muslims have been trying to kill Americans for a long time. These freaks hated Americans long before George W. Bush first stepped into the Oval Office. And they will still be trying to kill us all long after Bush has gone back to Texas. So don't try the Blame Bush First game with me.
It's not about Iraq.
So if these riots and killings have nothing to do with Iraq, it must be Israel's fault. Right?
I mean, we've always been told that if Israel would only give the Palestinians their own state, Arab resentment would fade away. But now we learn that the more the Israeli leaders offer the Palestinians, the more the Palestinians seem to want to kill the Jews.
After Sharon turned over Gaza over to the Palestinians, the Palestinians turned their future over to a bloody terrorist group whose stated goal is the destruction of Israel.
Meanwhile, Muslims across the world riot away over a cartoon that is disrespectful to their religion. They show their displeasure by vandalizing a Catholic Church.
With their track record on tolerance, these extremists should be on their knees praying for forgiveness instead of in the streets burning down buildings.
They have no right to be offended by events of the past month.
So why aren't we?
