    Have you never heard the claim that "Not all Muslims are terrorists"? This is generally accepted idea but the point is that there are many who are, or sympathize with them. Why should this have to be explained so frequently??
    Don't mind if I do.
    Great stuff! Now if you didn't equivocate in other posts and left it at that then you would have shown your concern is genuinely about art critics with sub machine guns.

    I'm going to assume by "equivocate," you mean dare criticize Pam Geller.

    Well, I will talk about whomever I want. And Christian extremists are just as much a problem as muslim extremists, the only good thing is that most often the Christian extremists do not use terrorism.

    I don't want Geller or anybody else to be censored, ever. But we all self censor regularly. And even if I think something to be cute or funny, if I think that I might be offending somebody with it, I may abstain. Surely you've done the same. If those people whom my cute and funny may provoke a group inclined to want to chop my head off for it, I may have added incentive to abstain. But feel free to support the completely gratuitous provocation to Islamic extremists and accept the continuos attacks by them. At least you guys can stand on your free speech.

    But what is happening far surpasses criticism, it has become a policing by elite groups in the media and academia deeming what is acceptable speech and opinions.

    "When people prefer to focus on the motives of the victims rather than on the motives of the attackers, they will ignore the single most important matter: that an art exhibition, or free speech, has been targeted".

    You don't have to "dare" to criticize Pamela Geller. You are free to do so with absolutely no risk whatsoever. Like you, the Islamists are also being critical of Pamela Geller but they want to kill her. You call her a "bigot" while they call her a "pig".

    There is a difference of degrees here for sure.

    Sure. And they will silence anyone who tries to hold a similar gathering in the future. The Islamists are on a roll while free speech is being condemned.

    These two dead Muslims are nothing except for temporary bragging rights.The international trend of self criticism and appeasement is moving only in one direction.
