The Double Standard

This one's also about the cartoon thingy. I saw philosopher Roger Scruton's bang-on perspective on an obvious and horribly damaging double standard perpetrated by too many Moslems:

"There is, in the Muslim culture that is growing in the modern world, a lamentable attachment to double standards – an assumption that you are free to express the most violent hatred, incitement to violence, and group antagonism, including attacks on embassies and the symbols of peaceful coexistence, while condemning all invasions of the sacred Muslim space as intolerable breaches of the law."
