IS IT JUST ME ....
Neil Boortz ^ | May 18, 2005

Posted on 05/18/2005 5:45:04 AM PDT by SueRae

My sentiments exactly!

IS IT JUST ME ....

... or are some of the rest of you getting just a little bit tired of all of the butt kissing we're delivering to disgruntled Muslims out there. This whole flap over the faulty Newsweek story is starting to get under several different patches of my skin.

Reuters is reporting from Islamabad that the Pakistani government remains unhappy with Newsweek. Well, don't feel pregnant, Pakistan. But Pakistani Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed pushes things just a bit with his statement that we need to work harder at understanding the sensitivities of the Islamic people. He says "The apology and retraction are not enough. "They (Newsweek) should understand the sentiments of Muslims and think 101 times before publishing news which hurt feelings of Muslims."

Sorry, pal. I'm not buying it. I getting just a bit beyond the point where I'm all bent out of shape trying to understand Islamic sensitivities. If there is something about your religion that should make me feel badly about poor Muslims getting their feelings hurt, you had better get it out there on the table now. All I see is a religion that seems to take great pleasure in passing condemnations and "death sentences" on various people around the world for all sorts of meaningless infractions of some great system of Islamic law.

I'm just not going to get all worked up worrying about the sensitivities of devotees of a religion that will stone a woman to death for adultery, while letting the man go unpunished.

Sensitivity would not be the word to describe how I feel about a religion that is in some way involved in more than 95% of the actual shooting conflicts and wars around the world.

I am going to ask for a NEA grant to place a koran in a bucket of pig piss.

Think I will get it?

Neil needs to hire someone who knows how to spell "antarctica"...

There was Coors beer product out a couple of years ago...one of the new "ice" beers. It was called "Artic Ice". I'm still puzzled over that one.

Regardless of how packaged, we are and will remain in a war with many of the muslim factions of the world.

Battles and places and tactics will occur, change, etc.

Media will spin, for both sides. Unfortunately the major media of the US and much of the world are biased in favor of the muslims.

Nevertheless, our military and government must battle on, because this enemy battles on.
