Sadly, that is the case. Liberal New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, far Left Democrat Rep. Jerrold "Jabba the Hut" Nadler, the AlQueda Civil Liberties Union, and various other writers--all from the Left--support this outrage.
Michael Streich, a high school/college American history teacher from North Carolina is typical of the bunch. Judging from what he wrote at Suite 101.com, "Muslims Face Religious Intolerance," I can certainly imagine the "history" he teaches is the Howard Zinn-approved revisionist type.
The Cordoba Initiative which proposes to build an Islamic Center that will include a mosque near New York City’s Ground Zero has brought out the best and the worst responses by concerned Americans. Mayor Michael Bloomberg supports the project and made an impassioned speech about religious freedom and tolerance in America on August 3, 2010. Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin decried the building of the center, referring to ground zero as “hallowed ground” in her Facebook blog on July 22, 2010.Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, six Americans were among 10 members of a Christian medical team slaughtered by Muslim Taliban members (Christian Science Monitor, via Michelle Malkin).
...From Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn to Temecula in California, angry Americans are participating in protests and are being met by other Americans supportive of their Muslim neighbors. Those opposed to the building of new mosques and Islamic centers cite traffic problems, but too often intolerance and fear is the chief motivator.
The execution-style killings of 10 people working for a Christian medical team in a remote region of northern Afghanistan fit into Taliban insurgents’ stated shift in tactics: Target Western civilians, especially Christians, as “foreign invaders.”
The Taliban took credit for one of the deadliest attacks yet on aid workers in Afghanistan, saying the Christian charity workers were proselytizing to poor villagers – a charge that the International Assistance Mission, which dispatched the team, denies.So, while the knee jerk liberals scream "religious intolerance" over the Sharia-influenced Cordoba Initiative's insensitivity towards the victims of 9/11 and their families, members of the supposed "peaceful religion" known as Islam murdered 10 humanitarian workers in cold blood for the crime of being Christians.
The bodies of six Americans, a Briton, a German, and two Afghan interpreters were discovered Friday in a forested part of Badakhshan Province in remote northern Afghanistan – until now considered a relatively peaceful region known mostly to adventure travelers. The only person in the party not killed was a local translator who offered proof he was a Muslim by quoting the Koran, according to the Associated Press.
The attack represents the largest single toll of American civilian deaths in Afghanistan since December, when a suicide bomber killed seven members of a CIA team. It also points to the operational viability of Taliban insurgents’ stated intent to
target foreign aid workers as combatants.
Well, let me tell Michael Bloomberg, Lard Ass Jerrold Nadler, the ACLU and this lib teacher Michael Streich: spare me your lectures about religious intolerance.
Don't lecture me about "religious intolerance" when Christians cannot pray to Jesus Christ in the public square.
Don't lecture me about "religious intolerance" when nativity scenes are forbidden during Christmas.
Don't lecture me about "religious intolerance" when the ACLU scum (who should all be publicly skinned, as well as tarred and feathered) work overtime to take down crosses off war memorials, or Ten Commandments displays.
Don't lecture me about "religious intolerance" when all you liberals do your best to forbid the mention of the word "God," unless it's followed by "damn."
Finally, I don't want to hear lectures about "religious intolerance" when the "religion" you're defending practices intolerance by the various terror attacks, beheadings, or the cold blooded murder of these ten workers, because they are "infidels."
