Love Muslim Style!
Of All Things To Protest, 'Cartoons' & Now 'Love'? Get Lives!



A Kashmiri Muslim activist of Dukhtaran-e-Milat (Daughters of the Muslim faith) holds a burning Valentine poster in Srinagar February 14, 2006. Dukhtaran-e-Milat last year formed the group's 'Maryam Squad' - named after the Virgin Mary - which stormed suspected brothels and liquor shops to stop prostitution and what it called Kashmir's 'moral decline.' The squad on Tuesday held a protest during which they raided many shops and burnt Valentine cards as part of their campaign. REUTERS/Danish Ismail

You've got to wonder about people who's definition of "moral decline" doesn't include rioting and shouting for the deaths of cartoon artists.

Keep in mind these are people who still culturally live in the Dark Ages, barefoot in the dirt. As far as I'm concerned, Muslims have officially lost the benefit of the doubt when it comes to being considered rational, reasonable, and nonviolent. Some stereotypes have merit, and some are simply accurate.
