Cartoon Rage Over The Olympics

Good grief! The Olympics in 2012 are going to coincide with Ramadan. Well, stop the whole world and let's rearrange everything the way some Muslims want it. Can we expect to see the crazed crowds cavorting in the streets again?

Massoud Shadjareh, chairman of the London-based Islamic Human Rights Commission, said: "They would not have organized this at Christmas. It is equally stupid to organize it at Ramadan.

"It shows a complete lack of awareness and sensitivity.

Get over yourself, Massoud, you can't hardly say the word Christmas anymore. Do you think anyone gives a rats butt if something is scheduled during it? How about Christians who fast during Lent, shall we make a special case for them also? How about Jewish observance of Shabbat? Shall we stop everything from sundown Friday night until nightfall Saturday?

You, Massoud, are the clueless one. Your expectation that the rest of the world put itself on hold for something they don't even believe in is why we have this culture clash.
