Is Islamic Fundamentalism REALLY just an isolated, small movement?
CNN’s own story by Josh Levs and Tricia Escobedo entitled “Arrest made in connection with deadly assault on U.S. consulate in Libya” noted protest around the world both large and small:
Since Tuesday's deadly assault in Libya -- and a protest the same day at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo -- demonstrations, both small and large, have been reported in Israel, Gaza, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Sudan, Tunisia, Morocco, Iraq, Iran and among Muslims in the Indian-controlled region of Kashmir.
All this supposedly in response to a short film that some in Muslim community found offensive. Or is it just some? Considering the amount of protest around the globe, that contention is difficult to sustain.
It seems the Islamic religion is becoming more and more a radical and deadly religion that tends to kill people if they disagree with its religious views and ways.
It’s difficult to go a day without seeing on a news report somewhere in the world where someone belonging to the Islamic religion has murdered someone else because they wrote a book, drew a cartoon, made a film, or some other medium that challenges the faith in the eyes of the faithful.
Meanwhile, many from the Muslim community around the globe continuously degrade other religions, views and ideals, believing that is entirely OK in contrast to their own behavior.
Will the world someday start treating those who belong to the Islamic religion as they treat others, with this type of murderous behavior and retaliation?
If so, does that make the world as bad as they are? Or would it be similar to the worlds response to World War II Germany?
