The Muslims Are Coming!

There's a good joke on p.134 of Talking About Jane Austen in Baghdad (see earlier post):

A man is taking a walk in Central Park in New York. Suddenly he sees a little girl being attacked by a pit bull terrier. He runs over and starts fighting with the dog. He succeeds in killing the dog and saving the girl's life. A policeman who was watching the scene walks over and says "You're a hero - tomorrow you can read it in the newspapers: Brave New Yorker Saves Life Of Little Girl". "But I'm not a New Yorker." "Oh, then it will say: Brave American Saves Life Of Little Girl", the policeman answers. "But I'm not an American", say the man. "What are you then?" The man says "I'm from Iraq."

Next day the newspapers read "Islamic Extremist Kills Innocent American Dog".

Funnily enough, a site which perfectly encapsulates such double standards, Bare Naked Islam, has a link this week to a comedy show touring Islamophobic hot spots in the USA. The post is entitled "Islam is NOT funny. Period." Perhaps it isn't, but as we keep seeing, racist morons like BNI and her/its resident end-times survivalist fruitcakes are. Very.

Here's a report about that show:
