    Tolerance Should Be A Two-Way Street

    Tolerance Should Be A Two-Way Street

    Except that throughout much of the world, it is not.  Read Christopher Hitchens’s post, A Test of Tolerance:

    Let us by all means make the “Ground Zero” debate a test of tolerance. But this will be a one-way street unless it is to be a test of Muslim tolerance as well.

    Which makes this NPR post, Rancor Over Mosque Could Fuel Islamic Extremists, particularly inane.  If history has proven anything, it is that “fuel” is the one thing for which “Islamic Extremists” do not want.  If not this, something else.

    That doesn’t mean we should engage in the same intolerance as they do.  But it also doesn’t mean we should deny reality.

    If it's not a two-way street, it's not really tolerance.

    To paraphrase Malcom X, it's not islamophobia to be wary of the poisonous snake that is Islam. It's common sense and self preservation.

    Actually it was Greg Gutfeld, host of Red Eye on Fox News Channel. He came up with the idea of a Muslim Gay Bar across the street from the Ground Zero Mosque.

    A few days later it was reported that Rush Limbaugh suggested a name for said bar:

    The Gayza Strip

    Amazing, isn't it, that in case after case (the Mohammed cartoons being one example) the Muslim agitators demand, demand, DEMAND "tolerance" because of their "religious sensibilities". (Apparently nobody else's "sensibilities" are of any concern whatever to these guys.)

    Y'know, I don't recall EVER seeing the words "Muslim" and "tolerance" together in the same sentence without some variant of the verb "demand" between them…
