Here is an excellent compliation of "things that offend muslims" that I thought I'd pass along to my readers - I am sure that you can come up with many others to add. I think my New Year's Resolution will be to not only refuse to caveat my writings with politically correct panderings but also to do at least a few of the items on this list.
This list is a work in progress. I welcome suggestions. Anyone who has more items to add to the list, post them in the comments.
The intent of the list is to illustrate the futility of the multicultural approach to Islam. Sharia law demands submission not only from Muslims, but from non-Muslims as well. This makes respectful coexistence nearly impossible with Muslims in Infidel lands. The examples below serve as reminder that submitting to one complaint or another only emboldens Muslims to seek to further their ultimate goal of establishing sharia.
The West needs to come to grips with this fact and start standing up for our God-given rights of free speech, free expression and freedom of religion, lest we surrender those rights to a theocratic movement bent on removing our Constitutional freedoms that we hold dear. In this case, our tolerance will lead to intolerance.
