‘Turmoil’ in Middle East has non-Muslims in crosshairs

America must explain itself for the “turmoil” and terrorism it has stirred in the Muslim breast, demanded Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who is otherwise hunky-dory with the U.S. being his nation’s chief cash cow.

The whining ingrate must have the memory of a gnat, or else he would kiss our tuckus for trying to rid his apathetic narco-state of some of the worst terror mongers in history, while trying to heal its interminable psychosis with multi-billions in American dollars.

We would have more success, if his patsy regime didn’t take 1,000 steps back with every one of our advancements.

Muslims are the ones who must be called upon to explain why their purported radicals are such sub-humans, whose depravities their so-called moderates skirt so deftly.

Funny, Karzai showed no “turmoil” over www.cnn.com/2013/06/10/world/asia/afghanistan-violence">Afghan militants beheading two children last week, one of them a 10-year-old boy. The doomed lad’s crime? Scrounging for food in a rubbish dump near a security checkpoint. Shame on Karzai for cowering from evil.

Islamo-nuts are entirely a Muslim spawn, and have nothing to do with the civilization that America represents. Save the “turmoil” for the ungodly persecution of Jews and Christians in Muslim strongholds, where the twin communities have lived and contributed for centuries. Their hardcore heartache is one of the most dismissed stories of our time.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom predicts Christians might disappear altogether from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Egypt in our lifetime, while the State Department exposes Egypt’s virulent anti-Semitism, in its International Religious Freedom Report for 2012.

One example states that President Mohammed Morsi, who campaigned as a reformist, said “Amen” in response to televised prayers last October, after an imam roared, “Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters.”

What if the shoe was on the other foot? Imagine the global outcry, if a Christian nation denied a Muslim medical treatment for being a Muslim. Or if Christians beheaded a Muslim in broad daylight in the name of Jesus. Or if a Christian mob torched dozens of Muslims homes, while cops dawdled.

Yet in some foreign states, Muslims have done all of the above to Christians with impunity. Merciless prison beatings have reduced Iranian-American pastor Saeed Abedini to a shell of his former self, since his imprisonment in Iran last September for being a Christian. But that hasn’t moved his Islamic captors to provide adequate medical care for his life-threatening injuries.

British soldier Lee Rigby was the target of jihadists, who executed the war hero on a London street last month for wearing a “Heroes” T-shirt.

And civilians in Pakistan — the world’s second most populous Muslim country — torched around 180 Christian homes in March, as law enforcers yawned.

Those atrocities don’t happen in the land of the brave. The FBI’s latest hate crime figures report 157 incidents against Muslims in 2011, compared to 111 against Christians, and 771 against Jews.

The “turmoil” in the Muslim world is cooked up by Muslims, but force-fed to Jews and Christians, who continue to be vilified and murdered for their beliefs. That crime against humanity is just too turbulent for words.
