How Civilized They Are! Not! (Addendum at the Bottom)

It's the cartoonifada and the Pope-ifada all over again. Take a look at this and the reaction on the part of Muslims around the world to the knighting of Salman Rushdie.

A few sample photos are posted below, but you just have to go to the above link to read and to see the details!

The full story. Worth your time.

If Muslims are going to be so enraged over cartoons and knighthood, just how are they going to fit into Western civilization? They aren't if they continue to push to dictate respected and time-honored aspects of Western life, including satire, knighthood, and freedom of speech. For more thoughts along those lines, read Mark Alexander's essay "Keep Your Powder Dry!..."

Addendum: From this source:
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - A group of hardline Pakistani Muslim clerics said on Thursday they had bestowed a religious title on Osama bin Laden in response to a British knighthood for author Salman Rushdie.

The Pakistan Ulema Council gave bin Laden the title "Saifullah", or sword of Allah, in response to the knighthood awarded to Rushdie last week for services to literature....
[Hat-tip to Redneck's Revenge for this addendum]

Will infidels go rioting in the streets over Muslims' honoring of OBL? I doubt it.
