More "Peaceful" Overtures
- Three christian girls, all about 16 years old, were beheaded in Indonesia. The BBC reports all three were on their way to class and the heads were found some distance away, one near the front steps of a church.
- Saudi Arabia prepares to execute a 14 year old boy for a crime committed when he was 13, and in spite of the fact that the Saudi's are signatories to a treaty prohibiting the execution of persons under the age of 18
- Three bombs rip through holiday crowds in New Delhi prior to the biggest Hindu and Muslim festivals. The United States issued travel warnings to its citizens a week ago of potential attacks in India and Indian authorities were in pursuit of a known al-qaeda terrorist. Coordinated, timed attacks are a hallmark of al-qaeda.
- And for the third straight night, muslim riots in France over the deaths of two muslim teens who fled police by climbing the wall of a electrical relay station and were electrocuted. Upwards of 50 cars were torched over the three days and 23 officers injured. How come the mainstream media isn't reporting this?
The Prince of Wales will try to persuade George W Bush and Americans of the merits of Islam this week because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since September 11. The Prince, who leaves on Tuesday for an eight-day tour of the US, has voiced private concerns over America's "confrontational" approach to Muslim countries and its failure to appreciate Islam's strengths.
Nowadays? This year, an English city council banned Piglet (from Winnie the Pooh) because a talking pig was deemed offensive to muslims (see coverage here, here, here). And were supposed to be less confrontational? Sorry, but no. We expect whomever forwarded the post about the two-year-old finding the gun and shooting the four-year-old to do same with this post and again accuse us of "racism." Perhaps this time, we'll get 2,000 visitors out of it?
