I guess I’m a sheeple, then. This toon is out of bounds, really. The Islamic idiots who flew the planes were trying to provoke us and they succeeded. We got bit by a dog and neither kicked the dog, nor even the doghouse. Instead, we ramped up “stupid intelligence” to attack a country that had nothing to do with the attack on us. Now, we are ramping up another war with the murderous IS. This will, no doubt, provoke them in their outrageous uncivilized behavior. This is not our fight. This is up to the people in the region, and their religious brethren around the world. Islam needs to deal with this instead of making lame excuses and giving tacit approval with statements I have personally heard that “Well I don’t condone the actions of the IS, but we can understand their intentions to purify the faith and act against the infidels. After all look at what they’ve done in Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo, and in the holy lands, perverting the sacred sites of Mecca and Medina with their mere presence. No, we Peaceful Muslims don’t condone what they do, but we completely understand why they do it.” The only commenter I have seen on this ite who has personally dealt with Muslims in numbers seems to be Paris Girl. I don’t mean having the occasional Americanized Muslim co-worker or friend, I mean dealt on a day to day basis with them. I have spent a lot of time in the GCC, and I can assure you the prevailing attitudes are as I describe them. When in their element, either on the outskirts of Paris or Berlin, Dubai or Oman or KSA, the attitudes are similar. Yeah, I’m just an uninformed sheeple, alright. That’s me.
