    George Tiller's blood wasn't even cold before every pro-life group out there was falling over themselves to issue statements unconditionally condemning his murder.

    Interesting how Muslim organizations still don't realize how poorly their silence reflects on them with every act of Islamic terrorism that goes uncondemned.

    Just sayin... :eusa_whistle:

    That is interesting...but you aren't totally correct. The pro-life groups aren't exactly condemning the murder, they are only saying they wouldn't do it while insinuating that the guy had it coming to him.

    Allow me to play devil's advocate. Tiller was doing nothing illegal, in his mind and according to his values and beliefs he was helping women in need. He was doing something that is covered by the law of the nation. Killing him was murder, it is inexcusable and thus the outrage. Murder cannot be condoned in a just society.

    Islamic terrorists see themselves as revolutionaries, as martyrs for a cause. And while many in the Muslim world criticize them, their actions are more about resentment and revenge. Look at any area in which terrorism exists and one can see reasons, whether it be Ireland, Yugoslavia, Israel, or Iraq.

    Translation: lefties will go to the wall for Islamists, since they perceive them as aggrieved.
