Religion of Peace? (part IV)

Muslims around the world are raging over the decision to bestow knighthood upon Sir Salman Rushdie. The mad mullahs of Iran labeled the Queen "an old crone." More seriously, The Times of London reports:

Effigies of Rushdie and the Queen were burnt in Pakistan, where presidential elections at the end of the year have destablised an already volatile political climate. Hundreds of protesters in Multan, Karachi and Lahore set fire to British flags and chanted “Death to Britain, death to Rushdie” and Islamist leaders called for nationwide protests after Friday prayers.

Ijaz-ul-Haq, the Religious Affairs Minister, told the assembly in Islamabad that the award of the knighthood excused suicide bombing. “If somebody has to attack by strapping bombs to his body to protect the honour of the Prophet then it is justified,” he said.
I've addressed the topic of Islam and violence before (see here, here, and here), and I'm hardly the greatest mind to note that the faith of Mohahmmed seems intrinsically violent. I think Greg Davis, author of Religion of Peace?: Islam's War Against the World, said it best in this essay from Human Events several months ago.

  • Good one, of course the very peaceful Muslims are justified for destroying the whole world over this. What? The Queen can't Knight someone she likes? She can't knight someone that other people don't like?

    But I'm sure Sir Rushdie has mixed emotions on this; the Queen has put him in much greater danger. Maybe he'll wish he had turned it down.

    At least this incident will lose the terrorists even more of their dhimmidiot appeasers.

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says
    always believe in books

    of course if it is in print
    then you know it must be true
