Wolf Howling: Dear Pakistan

The Wolf writes a long list of points about Islam to help the dialog with Muslims who are always pointing out the things about the West that they hate.

Wolf Howling: Dear Pakistan: "Dear Pakistan:

We have received word through the Pakistani newspaper The Daily Times that you intend to request that we in the West 'amend laws regarding freedom of expression in order to prevent offensive incidents such as the printing of blasphemous caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and the production of an anti-Islam film by a Dutch legislator.' We understand that you are motivated to make this plea in order to forestall the violence from Muslims reacting with justifiable homicidal mania to any perceived slight by word or picture. Indeed, you have stated that the recent suicide bombing outside the gates of the Danish Embassy was preventable if we in the West would just silence all criticism of Islam. Since you have been so kind as to take the first step and open up a dialogue on the topic, there are just a few minor things that we too find offensive and were wondering if you perhaps could do something about them.

- Do you think you could discuss the legitimacy of terrorism and violence to advance Islam. While we realize that the Wahhabi, Salafi, Deobandi sects in particular interpret the Koran to mean that they can freely murder non-Muslims or enslave them and rape them, perhaps you can understand why we are a bit offended by all of that? Or is that just Islamophobia on our part?"
