Comparing Reactions - Christian vs Muslim

A writer for the Jordan Times, Rami G. Khouri, wrote an op-ed piece entitled Muslim faith and Muslim anger and claimed that the Pope’s recent remarks on Islam and the reaction of Muslims around the world reveal “as much about the sensitivities of Muslims as it does about the insensitivities of non-Muslims.

He goes on to say a lot of other things sympathetic to the Muslim community, including this paragraph:

So when the leading Christian figure of the entire world chooses to refer to an obscure mediaeval Byzantine emperor’s remarks disparaging Islam and the Prophet Mohammad, one can understand why some Muslims would be deeply angered, even threatened. The Pope should be better advised on Muslim sensitivities. How would he react if the world’s top Muslim religious leaders recommended screening the DaVinci Code movie in all schools?
I’d like to answer Mr. Khouri’s question.

I do not know the Pope, and as a matter of fact, he does not speak for me and my faith, so I can’t say for sure how he would react in this situation, but I can tell Mr. Khouri how the Pope would NOT react.

He would not call for Christians everywhere to take opportunities to kill top Muslim leaders and their followers
He would not call for a week of anger
He would not call for rioting in the streets
He would not call for attacks on mosques
He would not call for Christians to shoot Muslim women in the back

It's rather funny that Mr. Khouri asks about how we'd feel about Muslims speaking "falsehoods" about our religion in our public schools. I'd feel the same way people at the History-a-Lie blog feel, since they reveal exactly how Islamic revisionists are telling our kids lies about Christianity, Judaism and Western history through adopted textbooks in our public schools!

Thanks for the link. It still seems incredible to me that our American public school system would allow this garbage. Disgusting.

It is sad and bizarre that some schools are so accommodating for Islam despite everything they stand for. It seems that the liberals are perverting the axiom that "my enemy's enemy is my friend" - i.e., liberals don't like Christians and Muslims hate Christians, so Muslims must be the friend of liberals.

What is even more ironic is that the Muslims hate the decadent liberal philosophies even more than they hate the Christian worldview!
