Mark Steyn: A Line To Remember

This is one reason why I read Kate McMillan. Responding to a reader who points out “if you make joke of prophet Mohamad and draw his picture there is 60% percent some one kill you“, Kate writes:

There’s the difference between an “extremist” and a “moderate”.

The “extremist” is the one with the death threat.

The “moderate” is the one who explains what you’ve done to deserve it.

And so it goes. Geert Wilders lives under 24-hour armed guard because Muslims want to kill him. But he’s the one charged with incitement.

The mainstream media, Yale University Press and Comedy Central now accept that Islamic law applies to believers and infidels alike – at least in terms of representations of Mohammed and tame jokes about him. So what will be the next Islamic prohibition to be universalized? And what makes you think that at Restaurant Sharia you can order à la carte?
