It was kinda the point I was getting at. In their society, it is acceptable to hate and insult westerners in general, even though millions have done nothing to offend them and have no desire to. Yet, when there is hatred and isults returned, all we hear are complaints.
I have issues about muslims over here in the uk doing anti uk demonstrations and so on. And we put up with it. I'd like to see a group of westerners doing an anti muslim demonstration in say Iraq. They'd be killed in the streets there and then. But that's ok isn't it?
Do you think there would be a lot more outrage if there was any other ethnicity on this effigy in NYC?: A mannequin symbolizing a Muslim in a keffiyeh, strapped to a "Made in the USA" bomb display at a protest of Park51 in New York City.
Do you really KNOW that?? or is that what the msm spoon feeds hoping that we will believe it if they repeat it often enough. If they do not condemn the actions, they condone them.

I know there are good Muslim people in the world but why are they not outraged at what has become of they're reputations? Why don't we hear from these "good" Muslims? They don't seem to have much to say... Hmmm.

All of your examples is attempts to subdue freedom of speech .... the last one is freedom of speech.
Freedom of speech means just that, the right to openly speak against the things you disagree with ...
You are making yourself a spokesperson for the opposite of democracy and freedom eg. political correctness - some opinions are ok ... some talk is ok ... as long as I agree ... your freedom is not freedomedit on 18-2-2012 by pilot70 because: spellingedit on 18-2-2012 by pilot70 because: same
Hate speech is, outside the law, any communication that disparages a person or a group on the basis of some characteristic such as race, color, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, or other characteristic.

What would you say if every time a priest molested a child, millions of Catholics danced in the streets?
What would you say if after the OK bombing, millions of Christians danced in the streets?
What would you say if after the Columbine shootings, millions of christians danced in the streets?
Oh I forgot, that only happens when Islamists commit atrocities. That must mean something....
well...would it be OK to denounce all Catholics - if that actually happened?
could we then go on to denounce all Christians - if they also danced in the streets?

What you forget that in the US criticizing a religion, any religion is par for course. It has never been wrong in the medias eyes for "intellectuals" to criticize religion. Hell it's like their duty. But since Islam is perceived as the "underdog", due to mostly to the fact that it was not one most of them grew up around, it is given the condescending protection of said intellectuals. And when those proclaimed to be the brains do something the lesser minds follow.edit on 18-2-2012 by hangedman13 because: missed a word
