Two recent stories in Time show how far the Islamic world has to go before it grows up and accepts that time marches on, with it or without it:

Alleged 9/11 Plotter Holds Court

Confessed terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed told U.S. military judge Ralph Kohlman on Thursday that he would represent himself at his tribunal, and that he welcomed the death penalty that would make him a “martyr.”

Bomb at Pakistan’s Danish Embassy

An apparent car bomb exploded outside the Danish embassy in Pakistan’s capital on Monday, killing at least five people and wounding dozens more, officials and witnesses said.

Yes folks, we have a guy who claims to want to be a martyr, even though he sent others to their deaths rather than himself and tried to evade US forces before finally being caught. We also have suicide-bombers who are still bellyaching over the Jyllands-Posten cartoons published over 2 years ago.

Unfortunately, Islam still has not come to grips with the furious sanctimony and ferocious immaturity that still rage within it. Someday it will; I hope we all live long enough to see it happen. But I’m not hopeful.
