Churches/Mosques Hypocrisy

About once every couple months we hear a story about someone laying trash up against a mosque and getting killed for it, or more recently a smoke grenade or bullets hitting the mosque and people practically rioting about it. Extremists are hiding in and around theses Mosques and yet when one of them takes a little damage all hell breaks loose.

Now we have an incident where a Muslim lost money to a Christian gambling so he accused the man of desecrating the Koran and what is the result, 1500 Muslims burning down 2 churches. Does that make any sense to anyone? Iím sure no one on this board probably supports this (which means maybe we wonít have a GOP vs. Dem thread).

Anyway the point of this thread is this: I see a lot of hypocrisy with Muslims today and how they respond to perceived injustices done to Muslims by non-Muslims and donít respond when it is done on Muslimís by Muslims or done on others by Muslims. What is causing this massive rip in their reactions?

Personally I think it is partly to do with their media not covering the hypocrisy and wording things in order to support the hypocrites but more so I believe it is a constant teaching of hatred for others that blinds them. I hate to draw this analogy because of where it might lead the thread but it reminds me of how GOP vs Dems do the exact same thing. Everything the other side does is evil everything we do is good.

Two Pakistan Churches Burned

LAHORE , Pakistan ó Hundreds of Muslims attacked and burned two churches in Pakistan on Saturday after reports that a Christian man had desecrated Islam's holy book. No one was injured in the blazes.

A school, student hostel and the home of a priest were also torched by the crowd of about 1,500 Muslims near the town of Sangla Hill, about 80 miles northeast of Lahore, said police official Ali Asghar Dogar.

The attacks were being investigated. About two dozen people had been arrested, Dogar said.

The fires came a day after a local Muslim resident accused a Christian of burning a one-room Islamic school along with copies of the Quran. Dogar said the allegations were apparently leveled by people who lost money while gambling with the Christian man on Friday, but police had detained him and were investigating.

Shahbaz Bhatti, head of the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance ó which promotes the rights of minorities in mainly Muslim Pakistan, denied the charges and condemned the attacks on the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches.

"No Christian burned copies of the Quran," he told The Associated Press. "No Christian even can think of doing it. We have maximum regard and respect for the Quran and Islam's Prophet Muhammad."

Bhatti accused local Muslim leaders of using mosque public-address systems to urge Muslims to attack the churches.

Non-Muslims comprise just 3 percent of Pakistan's 150 million-plus population. The country's Christian minority generally coexists peacefully with the Muslim majority, but there have been occasional attacks on churches and Christian clergy by Islamic extremists railing against Western influence in Pakistan.

Thousands of Pakistanis joined angry street protests this spring over the alleged desecration of the Quran by interrogators at a U.S. military prison in Guantanamo, Bay, Cuba. Desecration of the holy book carries the death penalty in Pakistan.

Yep. The whole desicration of the qur'an thing they riotted and killed hundreds of people about before this? It was a terrorist detainee who tore it up to clog a toilet in order to shit on it and create a bad smell.

No fatwa's against this mans life. Not ONE Imam decrying this was horrible. Not ONE leader saying this was sacrilage.

And not ONE news agency pointed out the the fact that muslims gave the OK to it by not denouncing it.

I think its a hard thing to really say.. Do you have the hard stats on how many mosques were defaced in the last 4 years? How many rednecks beat up people who looked like they were a little more melanin in nature?

How many synagogues (I apologize if I mangled that spelling) have been burned down?

Every faith has its wicked side, and its good side. Im in Cairo right now and all I meet are wonderfull and helpfull Muslims who thankfully dont have to wade through the tripe that Fox News feeds to some of North America. (They also dont read Aljazeera (again I know.. spelling)
