ISLAM STEPS INTO TRAP

A court in Egypt has found eight people, involved in some way with the "Innocence Of Muslims" movie, guilty of "harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking Islam and spreading false information," all charges that carry the death penalty. Fortunately for those condemned none of them are actually in Egypt at the moment, although they should probably ask Salman Rushdie if he has any tips for amusing yourself whilst hiding in windowless room for the rest of your life.

One of the walking dead is the obnoxious, Quran burning, Florida pastor, Terry Jones. His response to his sentence was predictable. The ruling "shows the true face of Islam," he says. "We can speak out here in America. That freedom means that we criticize government leadership, religion even at times. Islam is not a religion that tolerates any type of criticism."

And, of course, the trouble making, ambassador killing tosser is right. Islam is its own worst enemy and will not change until there are some Muslim women in high places brave enough to tell the boys how pathetic their constant posturing really is.
