A Muslim cleric says, "“If he’d gone through with it [the Koran burning], it would have been tantamount to war, a war that would have rallied Muslims all over the world.”
But what about Muslims burning Bibles, and destroying Christian symbols -- doesn't this count for something? Somehow the soon-to-be-freshly-enraged Muslim world and the poodle-media apparently missed this story from 2007.
Father Manuel Musallem, head of Gaza's Latin church, told the AP that Muslims have ransacked, burned and looted a school and convent that are part of the Gaza Strip's small Romany Catholic community. He told the AP that crosses were broken, damage was done to a statue of Jesus, and at the Rosary Sister School and nearby convent, prayer books were burned.
Father Musalam additionally told The Jerusalem Post that the Muslim gunmen used rocket-propeled grenades (RPGs) to blow through the doors of the church and school, before burning Bibles and destroying every cross they could get their hands on.When the West fails to criticize the destruction of Bibles and crosses by Muslims, yet justifies Muslim rage and terror over the destruction of a Koran, it strengthens Islam.
When Obama calls for tolerance on 9/11, he clearly means tolerance by the West of Islam -- he clearly does not mean his words as a rebuke of Islamic actions of intolerance towards the West.
Islam is going to steam-roller over the West and its pliant double-standard of holding itself to one standard and other cultures to another.
