Ayaan Hirsi Ali on Islamic Rage

She says:

"The Muslim men and women (and yes, there are plenty of women) who support—whether actively or passively—the idea that blasphemers deserve to suffer punishment are not a fringe group. On the contrary, they represent the mainstream of contemporary Islam."

"Of course, there are many Muslims and ex-Muslims, in Libya, Egypt, and elsewhere, who unambiguously condemn not only the murders and riots, as well as the idea that dissenters from this mainstream should be punished. But they are marginalized and all too often indirectly held responsible for the very provocation. In the age of globalization and mass immigration, such intolerance has crossed borders and become the defining characteristic of Islam."

So, in other words-it's not about a stupid movie.

And anyway, where is the outrage about Muslim-made movies?

I'm still outraged about a film they did a few years back.

Remember it?

The movie that started with the following script.

Oh wait-it wasn't a script, and it wasn't a movie-it was a jihadi execution snuff film.

"My name is Daniel Pearl." 

"“My father is Jewish, my mother is Jewish, I am Jewish.”  

Never forget-never forgive.
