Religion of Peace Redux

We've previously covered the phenomenon of the Danish cartoons and the death threats from the Islamic fascists (I know people object to the term "Islamofascist", but what would you call someone who wants to kill you for drawing pictures they don't like?), but one would wish that at some time the story would play itself out, right?

Apparently that hasn't happened yet. Here's the latest chapter, if you haven't heard it yet:

Danish political cartoonist Kurt Westergaard hid in a "panic room" inside his home as a man wielding an ax and knife cracked the glass in the home's front door, Danish police said Saturday.

Police said a home alarm alerted them to the scene in Aarhus at 10 p.m. Friday, and they were attacked by the suspect when they responded. Police shot the suspect.

Over the years, Danish authorities have arrested other suspects who allegedly plotted against Westergaard's life.

After three such arrests in February 2008, Westergaard issued a statement, saying, "Of course I fear for my life after the Danish Security and Intelligence Service informed me of the concrete plans of certain people to kill me. However, I have turned fear into anger and indignation. It has made me angry that a perfectly normal everyday activity which I used to do by the thousand was abused to set off such madness."

Meanwhile, I'll just sit here quietly and wait for someone to explain once more how Islam is a religion of peace.

Sit as long as you want...but the truth is really that "religion of peace", at least according to the preponderence of historical evidence, is a contradiction in terms, a point lost on the Christians who work so hard to draw out the violent aspects of Islam...
