An old saw runs that the worst advertisement for Christianity has been the behaviour of its self-proclaimed adherents. Substitute "Islam" for "Christianity" and you may get the point of Pakistani minister Ghulam Ahmad Baroul who over the weekend offered a $100,000 "bounty" on the head of "Innocence Of Muslims" filmmaker Nakoula Bassily Nakoula/Sam Bacile. Not that it really matters, but I am curious- firstly is this bounty payable only to the "brothers" of the Taliban/Al Qaeda(ie Muslims) or can ANYBODY(irrespective of religious belief)? Will the putative bounty be paid upon the killer's production of the severed head of Mr Nakoula? What about the rest of him. How will it be paid? It is true that every faith has its loonies( "Rev" Terry Jones springs to mind), but the self-declared "Religion Of Peace" seems to have more than its fair share of them- or is that "Islamophobic" or "racist" to point this out?
What do YOU think?
