Renewed hatred and lies

"Religion of tolerance" update:
From Arab Times (via Jyllands-Posten):

‘Booklet’ calls for continued boycott
KUWAIT CITY: Copies of a booklet were distributed among worshippers during the Friday prayers at many mosques around Kuwait highlighting the speech of Pope Benedict XVI. The eight-page booklet was titled ‘The stance of the devotees of the Merciful towards the Vatican Pope’s statements.’ The cover has a picture of the Pope with arms raised towards the skies, and the words Norway and Denmark written on each elbow. The Pope’s picture has the face covered with fire rising from his body and lightning striking him and the Vatican flag placed on his head.


The booklet, whose author and publisher remained anonymous, was seen by people as an attempt not only to provoke Muslims in Kuwait to continue to boycott Western products, but to increase hatred towards Christians. The booklet is divided into sections. The leaflet begins with the following: A majority of Muslims are convinced that the apologies received after the Danish cartoons mocked the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) were sufficient, so they put their minds at ease and stopped their boycott. Yet this offense was soon followed by another, when Pope Benedict XVI — father of those calling for infinity — was quoted as saying a few weeks ago, ‘Just show me what he gave the world that is new, and you will find only evil and inhuman things, such as his order to spread by the sword the faith he preached’.

(...)

The fourth section of the booklet demonstrates the continuing attacks on Islam, Muslims and the Prophet (PBUH) by Denmark. It said the Danish TV channel presented a program called ‘The Ugliest Drawing’ which is specialized in insulting Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Those who lose in this show have to wear a ‘veil’, “which is further demeaning to Muslims.” The closing chapter asks: ‘What Muslims should do?’ and this has been summarized in four points — hate those offenders, do their best to back Islam and defend its Prophet, continue boycott of Western products and pray for their destruction.

Needles to say, there has been no such TV program. Again one of those typical lies, that islamist need to spice up their hate-speach.

But if wearing a veil is "demeaning" to muslims, why to they insist on it so whole-heartedly?

Update:
Zonka has more. Damn, we think alike :-)
