Editor Killed -- Offended Islamo-Fascists

If this were the work of fundamentalist Christians of neo-conservatives, it would be front-page news around the globe. Instead, it gets buried on page A23 of the Washington Post -- and not given any significant play elsewhere.

But then again, we are so used to the barbarism of the jihadi Islam that this barely causes a ripple in the cosmic force of the universe.

A Sudanese newspaper editor who infuriated Muslim fundamentalists last year by printing an article that concerned questions about the parentage of the prophet Muhammad was found dead Wednesday in Khartoum, the capital.

Masked gunmen abducted Mohamed Taha, editor in chief of Al-Wifaq, from his home Tuesday. His decapitated body was found Wednesday in another section of the city. His head was beside the body, and his hands and feet had been bound, the Reuters news service reported.

Groups of tearful Sudanese reporters gathered outside a mosque in Khartoum on Wednesday night, according to news reports.

Reporters Without Borders, a group that promotes press freedoms worldwide, condemned the killing.

"We express our solidarity with our colleagues in Khartoum, for whom this cowardly murder is a harsh ordeal," the organization said in a statement. "The Sudanese authorities must do their utmost to see that light is shed on this tragedy, so that both the perpetrators and those who instigated it are brought to trial."

Last year, Taha published an article that referred to a centuries-old text by a Muslim historian that raised questions about the prophet's lineage. Religious leaders in Khartoum denounced Taha's work, and scores of protesters called for his death.

That one would be convicted of a crime for offending the religious sensibilities of one's readers is atrocious -- especially when the offense is something so trivial as raising genealogical issues. That one would be murdered for it is intolerable -- but we go right on tolerating it out of sensitivity to the followers of jihadi Islam. At what point will we recognize that jihadi Islam is noting but a gigantic conspiracy to violate basic human rights?

Comments on Editor Killed -- Offended Islamo-Fascists

Would that American Christians would take similar offense at the likes of Mapplethorpe and "Last Testament" sorts. Christian Europe had much less patience in its heyday, though it went too far,perhaps, in Servetus' case.

So now you argue for the murder of those who disagree with your theology? 
Yep -- that is part and parcel of both Christian identity and Islam,
and clearly indicates that you belong to one of those two false cults.

Yeah, milquetoast. "Piss Christ" and Mapplethorpe's anti-Christian productions are
mere "disagreements" with "theology."

No wonder the Moslems are winnning with
pantywaist "conservatives" like this, whose
enthusiasm for militancy is limited to urging Israel to kick ass.

Actually, Ken, it is what separates the civilized from the barbarians.

Except when you are exonerating the barbarism of Israel in Lebanon.

|| Posted by Ken Hoop, September 11, 2006 12:30 PM ||

No -- Israel was killing the barbarians -- the jihadi terrorists of
Hezbollah.  Any civilian casualties belong at the doorstep of that
terrorist organization, which hid like cowards among civilians.
