Opera Canceled Over a Depiction of Muhammad
(NY Times snippet)
"A German opera house canceled performances of Mozart's
"Idomeneo" after a scene that depicts the severed head of
the Prophet Muhammad prompted an anonymous threat..."
Let me get this straight.
An opera house in Germany can't offer a Mozart performance without some Islamic extremist wing-nuts threatening them?
These extremists are really giving Islam a bad name.
Islam-a-bad...Oh, I get how they named that place.
I wish I knew more about the Koran because I'm pretty sure the prophet Muhammad wouldn't have wanted his followers to kill people just for depicting his face or physical embodiment.
Nor do I believe any true representative of God would want his followers to roam around perpetually pissed-off and looking for a fight.
If the radical Muslims (and the radical Christians, for that matter) want people to stop resenting them, they ought to learn to live and let live and mind their own goddamn business.
