Mark Steyn has a column on Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, who destroyed a mosque the other day. Oddly enough, there has been no rioting or mindless screaming by the western press.
The point is the world's Muslims seem entirely cool with Infidel Bob razing a mosque. Unlike the fallout over Newsweek's fraudulent story about the Koran being flushed down a toilet, no excitable young men went bananas in Pakistan; no Western progressives berated Mr. Mugabe for his "cultural insensitivity." And sadly most of the big-shot Muslim spokespersons were still too busy flaying the Bush administration to whip their subjects into a frenzy over Hatcliffe Extension's pile of Islamic rubble.
Steyn goes on to discuss Gitmo and the idiotic media response to "human rights violations" at length, including this tidbit.
But sure, go ahead, close Gitmo and wait for the rave reviews from the media — right after the complaints it's culturally insensitive to rebuild the World Trade Center when it's the burial site of 10 revered Muslim martyrs.
A good read.
