Terry Jones probably feels smug right about now.

He went out and burned a Koran, on the principle that doing so would likely provoke a bunch of hardline Islamists somewhere to erupt in murderous violence, and… a bunch of hardline Islamists erupted in murderous violence.  I got nothing against Islam and nothing against Muslims (at least, I got nothing against the ones not actively trying to kill either me, or my country’s friends and allies, at the moment); and I got a lot of problems with burning books.  But I also got a lot of problems with arson and murder being treated as a reasonable response to a religious insult.

Which is (unfortunately) kind of Jones’ point, damn his eyes.

    He is feeling smug, that is the problem. Innocent people die, he feels smug. Yes, he has the constitutional right to do this…just like Phelps has the right to protest military funerals, but I have the right to think they are both morons.

    So the woman who walks into the biker bar in a micro-mini and fishnets is not only asking to be raped, but is asking for the woman shopping for groceries across town to be raped.

    The problem is that the religion of Islam is incompatible with a civilized society. Period. Full stop. How much more proof do we need? The only reason this doesn’t happen here in the US is that Muslims, like Mohammed in Medina, are polite until they are certain they are in charge.

    So many people try to place the blame of the actions of the extremists on others instead of the ones who made the choice. Michelle Malkin has documented a history of the extremists “never” being satisfied and will flare up all the time. So why change our actions based on the fact that it won’t change their choices? They are going to flare up anyway no matter what we do!
