Gaddafi and Offending Muslim Sensibilities

The SEALs take out Osama Bin Laden, a self avowed Muslim. His body is treated respectfully by our military. It is washed and wrapped for a Muslim burial, complete with prayers and this is accomplished within twenty-four hours of his death, as prescribed by Islam.

Gaddafi, also a Muslim, is beaten, sodomized and eventually executed by Muslims several days ago in a Muslim country. His body is kept in a meat locker, during which time it is repeatedly put on public display. On the same day that the new Lybian leadership announces that the new government and its laws will be Sharia based, it is also announced that Gaddafi may be buried tomorrow in an undisclosed location, nearly a week after his death.

The Telegraph:

Muslim clerics said on Monday that Osama bin Laden's burial at sea was a violation of Islamic tradition that may further provoke militant calls for revenge attacks against American targets.

In India, a host of Muslim scholars, clerics and citizens declared that the bodies of the terrorists responsible for the slaughter in Mumbai should not receive respectful Muslim treatment, whether burial in under twenty four hours or in a Muslim cemetery.

Just maybe the U.S. is a bit overly sensitive to what it presumes is Muslim sensitivities, whether because of political correctness, creeping dhimmitude or both!
