Findalis from Monkey in the Middle just published a piece about the Muslim outrage over a Facebook photo of a burning Quran and a saying kept running through my head but I couldn't remember who said it, so I hunted for it.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."-- Martin Luther King Jr.
This latest outrage by Muslim extremists follows directly on the heels of protests across the world against American embassies under the guise of offense over a movie clip where Mohammed was profiled as a pedophile, womanizer, etc.... and as examples have shown time and time again, there is only one group that consistently react with violence, death and destruction when they feel offense.
When photos and YouTube clips are published of people burning bibles, the reaction is a shake of the head an a prayer for the poor soul that feels the need to denigrate the Bible.

No one died. No buildings were destroyed. No towns set on fire. They are civilized.
Yet, show a burning or burnt Quran?
These are the headlines:
Officials: Angry Muslims torch Buddhist temples, homes in Bangladesh over burned Quran photo
Bangladeshi Muslims burn 10 Buddhist temples over Facebook photo
Bangladeshis burn Buddhist temples over Quran photograph on Facebook
Bangladesh: Muslims Attack Buddhist Temples, Homes Over Quran Facebook Photo
Bangladesh Muslims torch Buddhist shrines, police say
Muslim protesters torch Buddhist temples, homes in Bangladesh
As Pamela Geller asserts: They are "savages."
These savages live in a perpetual state of outrage and proponents of free speech can never, ever let them cower us with their threats and continuous savagery.
Kudos to Geller: "In any war between civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man."
They have declared Jihad, a holy war, against free speech... they will not win.
