Evil and Inhuman

See, if you think someone has called you evil and inhuman, what you have to do is prove them wrong by going out and doing something evil and inhuman:

Italian nun shot dead by Somali gunmen

MOHAMED SHEIKH NOR, Associated Press Writer
- Two gunmen killed an Italian nun and her bodyguard at a hospital Sunday, and a security official for an Islamic militia controlling the capital speculated the attack was linked to worldwide Muslim anger over a speech by
Pope Benedict XVI.

The nun, whose identify was not released, was shot in the back four times at the entrance to the Austrian-run S.O.S. Hospital in northern Mogadishu, said Dr. Mohamed Yusuf, a physician at the facility, which serves mothers and children.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which came hours after a leading Somali cleric condemned remarks by the pope that quoted a Byzantine emperor who characterized some of the teachings of Islam's founder as "evil and inhuman."
Now to be fair, this was the act of a few men, which should not bring all Muslims into disrepute. The fact that no Muslims will speak out and call the killing of nuns evil, that is what brings all Muslims into disrepute.

mmm... delicious "Commints" -- packed chock full of downright flavor, and only 1 calorie!

We observe no irony whatsoever in the violent uprising(s) broadcast by the MSM in response to the Pope's call for reasonable dialogue.

That's one-a-them "self-referential" witticisms, like "this sentence is false."

We only wish the MSM would work a little (or a lot) harder to unearth the billion or so opinions of more moderate and sensible Muslims... how hard can it be to find a couple/three of those and publish their responses via Reuters?
