OUTRAGED MUSLIMS! OH MY!Author Unknown We wake up this morning to see video on CNN showing rampaging Muslims Around the world.In Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific Rim ...Muslim Mobs spreading mayhem. It seems that these mighty mad Muslims are rioting and firing their ever-present AK-47s into the air because of cartoons. Yup ... this latest epidemic of Muslim outrage comes to us because some newspapers in Norway and Denmark published some cartoons depicting Mohammed. Muslim outrage huh.

They're rampaging and burningflags. They're looking for Europeans to kidnap. They're threateninginnkeepers and generally raising holy Muslim hell not because of anyoutrage over a cartoon. They're outraged because it is part of theIslamic jihadist culture to be outraged. You don't really need a reason. You just need an excuse. Wandering around, destroying property, murdering children, firing guns into the air and feigning outrage over the slightest perceived insult is to a jihadist what tailgating is to a Steeler's fan.I know and understand that these bloodthirsty murderers do notrepresent the majority of the world's Muslims. When, though, do they becomeoutraged? When do they take to the streets to express their outrage at theradicals who are making their religion the object of worldwide hatred andridicule?Islamic writer Salman Rushdie wrote of these silent Muslims in a NewYork Times article three years ago. "As their ancient, deeplycivilized culture of love, art and philosophical reflection ishijacked by paranoiacs, racists, liars, male supremacists, tyrants,fanatics and violence junkies, why are they not screaming?"Indeed. Why not?
