Posted on 09/14/2012 2:38:24 PM PDT by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle
In a September 13 Washington Post On Faith blog post entitled "When free speech costs human life," Qasim Rashid of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA complained that it was "extreme" to expect Muslims in the Middle East to develop thicker skin and not riot every time someone halfway around the world makes a video or cartoon that offends their religious sensibilities:
[I]f you havent noticed a pattern, let me illustrate this sadistic re-run. First, anti-Islam propagandists create and promote anti-Islam propaganda under the guise of free speechknowing it will incite extremists to violence. Second, extremists react to the propaganda, resulting in the deaths of innocent civilians including U.N. aid workers, American citizens, and what we often callously refer to as collateral damage,i.e. innocent women and children. Third, anti-Islam propagandists sit safely in their abodes, thousands of miles away and innocently shrug, Too bad. This offensive speech is my right. Finally, Muslims worldwide are put on trial to again condemn the violencefailure to do so is perceived as implicit approval. Yet, Islam remains maligned and, most importantly, innocent people continue to suffer.
To think this vicious cycle can stop simply if extremists stop being extremists is an extreme view itself.
Rashid went on to insist that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens lost his life "because others valued their own right to speech more than they valued his right to live."

Bye bye Rashid!
It’s not “extreme,” it’s just a bad bet. F’em and protect our own.
Then they must say this about all extremists.
I am a conservative extremist. I expect their defense of me to be written and published shortly.
I remember an engineering professor of my younger days, who, during a class on the stability of dynamic systems, said "when a system becomes unstable, something outside the system will always change in a way that will make the system stable once again."
We need a zero-tolerance policy for islam.
Just as for other Statist cancers.
The logic breaks down when Muslims are somehow required to riot.
Just ignore it.
NEA funded Piss Christ. Last Temptation of Christ was a major film studio. Leftists screamed art and free speech. Will not one person stand up for the First Amendment???
The ol homeostasis thing.
The dems have misunderstood it to mean “homostasis”.
mentally deranged issue of centuries of Islamism's practice of consanguineous marriages.
I’m guessing this pathetic loser also believes “If she didn’t want to get raped, she shouldn’t have been born a woman.”
The fact is, Muslims don’t eat pigs because even Muslims understand that cannibalism is immoral.
Amen. But I’m not holding my breath waiting for it.
muslims are sensitive to criticism of their looney death cult and their child-molesting drunken prophet, piss be upon him, because even the retarded muslim majority deep down know that their whole squirrelly “religion” is bunk.
“Qasim Rashid of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA...”
Muslim Community USA? Gosh, wouldn’t it be a shame if it somehow, say, disappeared? What a blow to our diversity that would be.
I know it would be tough, but I do believe I could eventually get over it, however.
Even the head of Libya said it was a preplanned terrorist attack using the mobs as cover
The cure for muslim extremism is available in both .50 and .30 caliber varieties. The .50 caliber is more effective but it is possible to carry more doses of the .30 caliber
“Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”
Those calling for moderation of my liberty can go to hell!
That’s enough to make me ask what they serve at these newspapers that causes people to be idiots.
Tolerate intolerance, everyone!
