Once again, U.S.-supported “freedom fighters” in Syria show their true face. In the following video, a Muslim cleric, after declaring the supremacy of Islam — “nothing but Allah shall be worshipped in the land of Syria, and nothing but the rule of Allah [Sharia law] shall govern, and no idol shall be worshiped in the land of Syria after these days” — proceeds to smash a statue of the Virgin Mary, to perfunctory yells of “Allahu Akbar,” or, “My god is better than your god.” [Click on CC if English subtitles don't appear]

Raymond Ibrahim, a Middle East and Islam specialist, is author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). His writings have appeared in a variety of media, including the Los Angeles Times, Washington Times, Jane’s Islamic Affairs Analyst, Middle East Quarterly, World Almanac of Islamism, and Chronicle of Higher Education; he has appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, C-SPAN, PBS, Reuters, Al-Jazeera, NPR, Blaze TV, and CBN. Ibrahim regularly speaks publicly, briefs governmental agencies, provides expert testimony for Islam-related lawsuits, and testifies before Congress. He is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center; Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow, Middle East Forum; and a Media Fellow at the Hoover Institution, 2013. Ibrahim’s dual-background -- born and raised in the U.S. by Coptic Egyptian parents born and raised in the Middle East -- has provided him with unique advantages, from equal fluency in English and Arabic, to an equal understanding of the Western and Middle Eastern mindsets, positioning him to explain the latter to the former.

Gotta give the Muslims some credit. They may be a bunch of backwards-ass, barely literate, misogynistic, 12th century savages but at least they stand up for their beliefs without apology.

If Western Civilization would take that page out of their book we wouldn't have a lot of the problems we have.

Even though mooslims commit barbaric atrocities such as genital mutilation of females...the mooslim men (nomads) have not lost their 'gonads' .....where did we misplace ours? We (the West) keep letting them slowly yet inexorably creep further and further into our societies while bowing down to their demands that WE must assimilate to THEM.....It is both disgraceful and disgusting how our elected leaders allow these moonbat, child-molesting, medevil, rapist, perverted murderers continue to take over our society; they need to be confronted and defeated..look at Britain.

Remember BENGHAZI!

This cleric has the same right to break a statue, if he owns it, that I have to burn a Koran if I own it. He has the same right to break a statue if he does NOT own it that I have to burn a Koran that I don't own -- none.
For either of us in the first instance, though, the act is an aggressive insult and one that decent people would usually shun. However, the rioting on issues like this tends to be one-sided.

In general if you anger Christians they respond by burning candles. If you anger muslims they respond by burning Christians.
