    You know, you keep insisting that you're not saying Beck and Palin hold our world image in their hands, yet you keep illustrating how, under your own terms, they do.

    I don't even know what the **** that means. Could you translate or paraphrase that **** into something that makes sense?

    Palin removed her head from her lower region long enough to make one statement about how burning Korans is bad for business. For that one moment of clarity in her life, the U.S. Military salutes her.

    Laugh it up.

    Meanwhile that Dove group down in Florida is going to be burning the Koran... Well done, far-rights. Way to move the U.S. up on the intolerant scale. We're now less the 6 degrees away from stoning people. Good show!

    I think you'll see by any reasonable reading of what I said about the "church" in FL burning the Koran, that I don't agree with it. But hey, don't let that get in the way of your absurd generalizations.

    Shoving mosques down America's throat is un-neccesary provocation, too. When you intentionally offend an entire nation, you have expect this kind of behavior. Isn't that what we're told about why Muslims hate us? But that's ok, since they're the enlightened victims and we're the blood thirsty oppressionists? You know how the Left sounds, right about now?

    OH OK!

    So this never really was just about the Islamic Cultural Centre at Ground Zero.

    Shoving Mosques down your throat?

    Jeez... so... how many mosques is too many mosques? And how is trying to build one say in Tennessee offensive?

    Ultimately, it's about the Ground Zero Mosque. This is how this all got started.

    We will see much more "intolerance" if one group is perceived to be given more rights than another. People in the democracies have been very tolerant of Muslims, inviting them into their countries to improve their lives while nothing reciprocal has every been demonstrated by Muslims. Muslims 'sensitivities' have also been forefront whole the sensitivities of others in the host countries has been made to take a back seat.

    When one group is being made to feel they have less rights than another, and the leadership doesn't step in, then there will be vigilantism. We can say it is wrong and it shouldn't happen, but it certainly will, both in Europe and in North America. One way tolerance cannot work for long.



    While the tolerance toward Muslims continues while the lack of tolerance by Muslims escalates, you can be sure that there will be more incidents like this and, eventually, violence.

    New York City has over 100 mosques so there is obviously no intolerance towards Muslims. However, when asked not to build a Mosque near ground zero, Muslims leaders have refused, claiming that the American people were "bigots" and "haters" by daring to oppose this one mosque site.

    This strongly suggests that the idea of 'tolerance' is not running in both directions.
