Muslims Maintain Their Perspective
MUSLIMS keep perspective:
Fifty-nine schoolchildren aged 8 to 18 were blown up by a suicide bomber. Anywhere between 40 and 130 women in the city of Basra were killed by zealots for various “religious” reasons. In the first attack on Benazir Bhutto (the one that killed 150) investigators from Pakistan’s People’s Party — whose rally was bombed — said that the bomb was strapped to a one year old infant. Mauritanian dacoists killed a French family vacationing. There was also reports of suicide bombers using a woman with Down’s Syndrome to carry out an attack, though it may be that the bomb deformed her head.
In the midst of all this, it is nice to see that Muslims are getting worked up over really important things: like the sisters who work in surgery but refuse to wash because they consider it immodest to bare their arms up to their elbows.
Here’s to having perspective.
