Reading Powerlineblog, I stumbled on this story:
Two teenage victims of an acid attack in Zanzibar are being treated in a specialist burns unit in London as police were ordered to arrest a radical Islamic preacher suspected of inspiring the assault.
The teenagers, who were on a month-long break volunteering for a charity when two men on a moped threw the acid over them, suffered injuries to their faces, hands, legs, backs, necks and chests. – The Telegraph
Hasn’t the time come to ask whether any person of good will can continue to be a Muslim? We keep hearing that the terrorists and their supporters are a minority, although polls are disquieting at best. But if there is a Muslim majority that does something beneficial to counterbalance the evil of terrorism, where is it? The cardinal rule of epistemology is, by the fruit we know the tree. What is the fruit of Islam? The world’s patience, one hopes, has limits.
It is something to think about. Despite what the left would have us believe, the concept of blanket condemnation for a religion is not the norm in America, unless, ironically, it is the Progressive hatred of the Christian faith.
Again, in spite of the best efforts of Progressives, no one would seriously lump all Christianity into the incredibly small number of abortion doctor murderers. There is an overwhelming preponderance of evidence that Christians worldwide make a concerted effort to help all kinds of people – even Muslims.
