A Empathy for Islam smacks of political correctness

This empathy for religious sensibilities seems reserved almost exclusively for Muslims, even though progressives are supposedly all about inclusion. Jews and Christians – especially Christians – don’t qualify.

The latest example is the violence earlier this month in Garland, Texas, where two self-styled jihadists attacked a contest organized by blogger-activist Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Initiative. She invited cartoonists to compete for a $10,000 prize to “Draw Muhammad” – an act considered punishable by death by Islamic extremists.
