Thread Name: BS: Teenager stoned: A Story, which beggars belief
Subject: RE: BS: A Story That Beggars Belief
What I am criticizing is the statement that no Islamic leaders have criticized this crime. I would challenge anyone who would make such a statement to take the trouble to find out what Islamic leaders have had to say about it before making such a statement (I've never run across anyone who says things like that who has actually bothered to find out what Islamic leaders have said before they make such a statement).

The fact is, most of the time, Islamic leaders do criticize such crimes, but we in the West aren't interested in hearing them when they do that, because it doesn't conform to our prejudices about Muslims.
