The Religion of Peace

If you don't want Westerners to call Islam a cult of death and violence, then stop acting like insane, bloodthirsty savages.

It looks as if immigrants youths want to turn nightly rioting during the Islamic holy month of ramadan into an annual tradition. Around 8:30pm last night violence erupted again in Brussels, the capital of Europe. The riots centered on the Brussels Marollen quarter and the area near the Midi Train Station, where the international trains from London and Paris arrive. Youths threw stones at passing people and cars, windows of parked cars were smashed, bus shelters were demolished, cars were set ablaze, a youth club was arsoned and a shop was looted. Two molotov cocktails were thrown into St.Peter’s hospital, one of the main hospitals of central Brussels. The fire brigade was able to extinguish the fires at the hospital, but youths managed to steal the keys of the fire engine.

And they wonder why we hold them in contempt. Until the moderates of Islam can control the impact of the radicals, it will always be seen as a religion of violence and intolerance.

Hell, just denouncing these whack jobs would be a good start.

But what do I know?
