Muslims Standing for Peace and Decency...

It is not likely much press will be given to the positive actions taken by Norwegian Muslims as they plan to form a peace ring around an Oslo synagogue. This on the heels of the recent attack on a synagogue in Copenhagen.

It seems clear the Muslims planning this event are saying that those who plan harm to Jews will fist have to go through them. Indeed this is positive. While a small scale event it surely represents the views of peaceful and tolerant Muslims everywhere.

TPM - A group of Muslims plan on forming a "peace ring" around a synagogue in Oslo, Norway, following the recent attack on a synagogue in Copenhagen.

Hajrad Arshad, the 17-year-old organizing the event, told Norway broadcaster NRK that the group wants to "extinguish the prejudices people have against Jews and against Muslims."

"We think that after the terrorist attacks in Copenhagen, it is the perfect time for us Muslims to distance ourselves from the harassment of Jews that is happening," she said.

According to Norwegian website The Local, the group has already recruited 450 people on Facebook to participate in the "peace ring."

Ervin Kohn, the leader of Oslo’s Jewish community, said he would allow the event if 30 people or more attended. He said it might "seem counter-productive" otherwise.

"What they are communicating is that if anyone wants to do anything against Jews in Norway, they have to go through us first, and I think that is very positive," Kohn said about the event.

I find myself wondering is any conservative weblogs (other than this one) will carry this story.

  1. Well, you know the answer to that. The usual extremist right-wing blogs are awash in calls for genocide against all Muslims.Yep. The pro-lifers agree with a fruitcake who wrote on those blogs that the U.S. needs to stop being "pussies," and start killing ALL MUSLIMS. This is their solution to terrorism. Kill everyone! And the usual gullibles agree with the lunatic who proposed it.

  2. If they do, I bet they get slammed for it by the majority of their commenters.

  3. Actually Shaw the majority of folks who lean conservative/libertarian don't agree with genocide of all Muslims. There is nothing that anyone can do to change the minds of those who lunatics who do.

    Unfortunately as fewer people elect to go to the polls (as % of eligible voters), and the ones who do seem to be growing more radicalized, we may end up with a government that becomes more and more radicalized and sees overwhelming military force on the level of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as the solution. Only on a much b roader scale obviously.

    Jerry, you are probably right. The lunatic fringe and their sock puppets would certainty have their knickers all tied up in knots.

  4. Jerry, they didn't get slammed. The nutcase who suggested genocide as a solution to Muslim terrorists was praised and cited for her brilliance. As I said on my blog, the comment from the person suggesting genocide was so over-the-top bat-shyte crazy, I'm guessing it was from someone trolling the wingers. And boy did they fall for it but good, making fools of themselves once again.
