Hacking through life with Occam's Razor in Both Hands

God Bless The Good People of Libya

Note especially the sign the little boy in front of the crowd is holding:

If only Terry Jones and his ilk were half as decent.  1/10th as decent.  1/1,000,000,000th as decent.

  1. The boy is right, but I think he is defending his faith against an accusation that is not made. At least, I do not think many people sincerely believe that it has anything to do with religion, although perhaps media coverage in the USA may give the story a different spin than here in the Old World.

    Nevertheless, as far as I understand, it has nothing to do with that movie or with Islam. Civilians protesting against a movie usually do not carry anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade launchers with them. It was a double terrorist attack, and as far as I know, no one seriously blames Islam.

    Yet, you are right that the boy has more decency than Terry Jones.
