I’d say you are hypersensitive to any legitimate criticism about Islam. You are an undilluted fountain of articles, criticism about the US, US foriegn policy, etc…
I have no problem with the legitimate criticism of my country or government. You however seem to be in a state of denial about radical islam, its history, and the misery its elements inflict on the world on a daily basis. Any time it is pointed called out, you call that islamophobia. I’d call it vigilance.
I criticize Islam enough for Al-Qaeda & co to want my head. Every religion has flaws.
You claim that your criticism is legitimate. I haven’t heard any cool-headed argument besides “look what these crazy dudes did!”. And you go on deducing that Islam preconized such behaviors and that Muslims around the world are supporting it. I have no problem with people criticizing Islam. I just get irritated when people start generalizing whatever was done by fanatics to a billion and a half of people. It’s not only morally wrong; It’s downright dangerous. From my perspective, a witch-hunt has been declared by the Murdoch conglomerate and I just can’t stand there watching my religion getting trashed.
Ask pookie if I can’t accept legitimate criticism of Islam.
I saw this article and thought of you:
Sorry, I didn’t read it. The typo in the title threw me off. I hold my readings to certain standards.[/quote]
No worries. It had to do with some bad apples issuing death threats because somebody implied that a radical element in the muslim community that had migrated to Australia had issues assimilating. There is a chance those issuing the non peaceful threats adhered to islam…
I’d be pissed if I were you as well. These bad apples are giving the majority a bum steer. However, it is not Murdoch’s fault for reporting it… Planes flying into buildings, shoe bombs, beheadings, and trains blowing up in Madrid & London tend to make the news… and not just on Fox…
