Let's Hope The Bandwagon Keeps Rolling Forward

"Enough now with this turning the other cheek! It's our duty to protect ourselves," Monsignor Velasio De Paolis, secretary of the Vatican's supreme court, thundered in the daily La Stampa. The Vatican, and others, are now beginning to say the right things, the obvious things. But why has it taken so long to state the obvious: Neither Muslims, nor any other group, has the right to expect a certain treatment if it is unwilling to reciprocate in kind and extend the same to others. It is the height of hypocrisy for Muslim dominated governments to remove ambassadors in protest the the publication of images, but at the same time provide lesser or no rights to its non-Muslim populations. This is not news, but the liberal west is chooses only to look inward and criticize, and is paralyzed when it comes to critically examining other countries, cultures and customs.
