The Muslim sense of humor is no joke.
It is priceless, though, that just as bootlicking Bam is removing the terms “Islamic radicalism” and “Islamic extremism” from the nation’s top security document, a radical Muslim group is threatening the creators of “South Park” for showing the Prophet Mohammed in a bear suit.
President Obama’s apoplectic mission to detach Muslims from their community’s most important world exports to date — fanaticism and terrorism — has hit a stumbling block before he’s even inked revisions on the National Security Strategy: Trey Parker and Matt Stone were threatened that “they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh” for satirizing the religious figure on the show’s recent 200th episode.
The 2004 murder of the Dutch filmmaker Van Gogh, targeted by Muslim-nut Mohammed Bouyeri for his critical documentary on Islam’s violent side, was naturally hair-raising because it happened only six months after Muslim terrorists beheaded American Jewish businessman Nick Berg in Iraq, and two years after Islamist thugs executed American journalist Daniel Pearl in Pakistan — without a peep, mind you, from mainstream Muslims.
Radical Islam’s nonsense has become boring, but also so problematic that Obama wants to deny it and bury it under a rug instead of calling it out as commander-in-chief of the Free World.
More than 15,000 terrorist attacks have been committed by Islam’s idiots since 9/11, as documented by the religionofpeace.com — 165 of them in the last month alone, killing 1,304 people and critically injuring 2,046 in 15 countries around the world. Are you listening, Mr. President?
Bam’s yen for “a new beginning” with the Muslim world has bloomed an ugly flower and made wusses out of media outlets, such as Comedy Central, which caved into the threats instead of standing by its right to promote free speech in the United States of America.
The White House’s blinders about radical Islam bode ill for everyone who values human life. He recently reversed guidelines which automatically screened passengers on flights arriving from 13 Muslim nations and Cuba, and allowed controversial Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan to re-enter the USA. That lifted a six-year ban on the man who told French President Nicolas Sarkozy in a 2003 debate that he wanted a “moratorium” on stoning adulterers to death instead of decrying the vile Islamic custom still practiced — officially and unofficially — in far too many Muslim nations; among them, Afghanistan, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Meanwhile, e-mails sent in to the White House press office by this column — inquiring how could President Obama downplay “Islamic extremism” when Islamic extremists were threatening Parker and Stone — went unanswered. No surprise there.
