Collective Punishment Under Islam

When Muhammad cartoons deemed blasphemous by Muslims were published in Europe, Christians in faraway Muslim countries like Nigeria were killed; when Pope Benedict quoted history deemed unflattering by Muslims, anti-Christian riots around the Muslim world ensued, churches were burned, and a nun was murdered in Somalia. Months ago, when an American pastor from a fringe group burned a Koran, dozens of U.N. aid workers were killed by Muslims in Afghanistan; some were beheaded.

I never know if what non-Muslims tell me about Islam is true.

I do know about what Muslims do in the name of Islam. Whether it's "true Islam" or not is immaterial to me. I just know that some Muslims think it's "True Islam" and they kill for that reason.

In a perverse sense, this is an attempt to hijack our freedom. We don't want people to be killed in the Western World, do we? So let's not offend Muslims. Let's kowtow to their agenda. So don't say what you really think of Muhammed, Islam, or anything related, someone might die because of your words.

Maybe we should have an open door immigration policy on persecuted Christians.
