Excite News: "Indonesian Foreign Ministry spokesman Yuri Thamrin said the dispute pitted 'the whole Islamic world vis-a-vis Denmark and vis-a-vis the trend of Islamophobia.'"
"Islamophobia" indeed. I know the cure. Let the Mullah renounce publicly the inlammatory language of hate, i.e. calling America the "Great Satan." Let them begin to treat their women with dignity and respect, allowing them basic God-given liberty and rights. Let them renounce war as a means of spreading Islam. Let them admit Christian ministries and churches into their lands. Let them allow Christian schools in their lands. Let them allow the free distribution of Bibles in their lands. Who is afraid of whom? When they allow as many Bibles is Islamic land as there are Korans in America and when there are as many Christian missionaries working and living safely in Islamic lands as there are Islamic missionaries living safely in America, then the talk of "Islamophobia" will not be necessary. Old debate technique: accuse your enemy of what you are yourself.

You don't build walls to defend the truth; you build walls to keep the truth out. Truth doesn't need defending and walls will not keep it out.
