...saying it "would offend the feelings of Muslims".

And we know now that offending the feelings of Muslims is the greatest crime one can commit.

Any non-Muslim with a beating heart has the same effect.

So does the sun rising in the East.

There they go again, showing the world how peaceful and tolerant Muslims are. Of course, buring down 12th century orthadox churches shows how "peaceful and tolerant" they are too, but this is ignored by MSM in the west. They have to show Clinton did the right thing after all...

Seventy per cent of the population are liberal Muslims

Sounds like "liberal" Muslims are just as annoying as the liberals we have in the West.

But Muslim groups in Shkoder rejected the local council plan for a statue, saying it "would offend the feelings of Muslims". "We do not want this statue to be erected in a public place, because we see her as a religious figure," said Bashkim Bajraktari, Shkoder's mufti, a Muslim religious leader.

Oh yes, can't have them be offended by a person from another religion that had a heart & soul to help those less fortunate without regard to religion! That would show the rules of Allah as inferior! Allah forbid that one might demonstrate to the world the God is bigger than any one book!

Only in the MSN.

Certainly, the Muslims will knock the statue down sooner or later. It's their style.

Remember the Buddhas of Bamiyan?

There was a fool from Hamas on Sky News last night who was talking about the Palestinians' feelings.

I shouted at the television, "I don't care."

I don't. When Muslims start to care about the feelings of those in the West, then I may be marginally interested in theirs. But as they don't care about the effect of people killing us from their sect, I don't care about them.

Just as an added note, I had hoped Israel would get a kick arse government that would deal with fellows like the one from Hamas, London style, with 5 rounds to the head. Sadly, no.

And what, praytell, distinguishes a liberal muslim.

They only wish to enslave the infidels...rather than blow them up or behead them?

(I suspect it doesn't mean that they are pro-choice and for gay marriage.)

I am offended that they are offended by other religions.

I am offended that they think they are better than anyone else.

Therefore, be gone from my sight, hearing, & smell!

I am offended by Muslims being Muslims!

I don't particularly like Beheadings, sentencing christians to death for being christians, shooting women in the back of the head in a soccer stadium, and professing that their religion is a peaceful religion.

Mother Theresa hurt no one.

Who did our soldiers go to war for in the balkins, These Muslim Ingrates?

Only behead those that dare resist being raped, actually. That's about as "liberal" as they get.

Funny how NATO wasn't concerned with "offending" the Orthodox Christians when they bombed Belgrade on Easter Sunday (repeating what Hitler had done in 1941).

And on another thread, we have some dim-bulb saying how bad the poor Albanian mussies were treated in Kosovo by the Serbs who would not just lie down and give up all their land to the invading muslims from Albania.

Why the nerve of those Christian Serbs , not just allowing the mussies to destroy their homes, steal their land and business' and blow-up churches and graveyards! Why the nerve of the Serbs FIGHTING back and hurting the poor albanian muslims FEELINGS!!!

News:
Muslim Community rejects opposition to Mother Theresa’s statue
TIRANA, March 21 – The head of the Albanian Muslim Community, the only official organization representing all Albanian Muslims, said on Monday opposition to placing a statue of Mother Teresa at the entrance of the northwestern city of Shkodra did not represent its official stance. Community leader Selim Muça also said placing the bust is within the powers of authorities and would not damage religious harmony in Shkodra. “Mother Teresa is the honor of our nation and we respect all distinguished figures of our nation” Muça said, adding the bust “does not damage religious harmony.” >>

Imagine a person being born of Irish father and English mother in Great Britain in 1774 and never living in the U.S.A. being heralded as "the honor of our American nation"

It would be sheer nonsense.

Yet, when Albanians appropriate Mother Theresa or Skenderbey it is called history.

Mother Theresa was born in Skopje, Macedonia in 1910. Albania was created in 1912 and Macedonia was not part of it.

Her father was a Tzintzar, not an Albanian. Mother Theresa made her career in India. Albanians may be proud of her because of her maternal lineage, but she can not be a distinguished figure of Albanian nation . She can be only distinguished figure of Shqip people. And this is not the same. German J.S. Bach can not be Austrian national figure, although Austrians can be proud of him as an example of German genius.

Appropriation of Mother Theresa as an "Albanian national figure" is an example of brazen theft of history.

Uh-oh. Don't be calling Mother Theresa a liar:

“By blood, I am Albanian. By citizenship, an Indian. By faith, I am a Catholic nun. As to my calling, I belong to the world. As to my heart, I belong entirely to the Heart of Jesus.”

Good catch, Gerald. Perhaps the original article was lifted from Serbianna or the NYT.

>>>>>>F-117A, good point. The two biggest heroes of Albania are both Christian: Mother Theresa and Skanderbeg.<<<<<

Skanderbeg, the biggest hero of Albania was not only Christian, he was not not an ethnic Albanian at all.

He was a Serb, born of Serb father and Serb mother. His lineage on both sides is Serb one. His wife was a Serb also. His sister was married to Serb nobleman. And Northern Albania was his realm.

All this is on historical record, long before Albania and Albanian rabid nationalism were invented.

Albania, the home of weirdos who like to steal other people's land and deal illegal cigarettes/drugs/women/little kids /childporn, all over Europe.

And, with their types of names on the top of interpols wanted lists all over Europe.

Albanians, So little to be proud of, unless YOU like being famous for your criminals.

Diverted billions from the Yugoslav National Bank, murdered political opponents and members of the press, stole numerous elections, and turned Serbia into an impoverished third world mafia state.

Well, he was an atheist who fought wars with Christian Slovenia and Christian Croatia, he precipitated the first deployment of US troops to the Balkans to deter Serb aggression against Christian Macedonia, destroyed and damaged more Christian churches & holy sites in the Balkans than did the Muslims, took millions from Saddam in the oil for food scandal, was a friend to Qadafi and an ally of Iraq. So, if you like anti-Christian dictators who are allied to the enemies of America and start wars with his neighbors, then Slobo is your man.

Or the Albanian government that has opened its training bases to our troops for their final exercises while enroute to war? Or the Albanian government that backs us diplomatically in the War on Terror?

The Albanians are on the American side, Lion. Whose side are you on?
