Protesters set a cinema ablaze on Friday in Peshawar, Pakistan. Violence there began early, and two people, including a television station employee, were killed. Mohammad Sajjad/Associated Press,via the NY Times.Apparently the Muslim world hasn’t gotten over the fact that a Neocrusading Coptic Christian crank apparently dared make a movie that dissed their Mohammed. The New York Times reports that mobs of Muslims in (where else?) Pakistan have decided that wanton slaughter is a useful way to deal with that fact (locally-cached article):

Violent crowds furious over an anti-Islamic video made in the United States convulsed Pakistan’s largest cities on Friday, leaving up to 19 people dead and more than 160 injured in a day of government-sanctioned protests.

It was the worst single day of violence in a Muslim country over the video, “Innocence of Muslims,” since protests began nearly two weeks ago in Egypt, before spreading to two dozen countries. Protesters have ignored the United States government’s denunciation of the video.

It all started with good intentions, you see. The Pakistanis had organized this nice, peaceful protest in which everyone was supposed to sing Kum Ba Ya or something, but it seems to have gotten just slightly out of hand:

Peaceful protests had been approved by Pakistan’s government, which declared Friday a national holiday, the Day of Love for the Prophet Muhammad. The move was part of an effort to either control or politically capitalize on rage against the inflammatory video, which depicts Muhammad, the founder of Islam, as a sexually perverted buffoon.

Exactly how the Pakistanis went from having their gentle holiday with a peaceful protest, to slaughtering people all over the place, is a complete mystery.

At least, the Times doesn’t bother to explain it. Unlike them, I can explain it. It’s called “religiously-propagated cultural immaturity.” Time for Pakistanis … and the rest of the world’s Muslims … to fucking grow the hell up for the first time in their sniveling little lives.

You guys really need to get hold of yourselves. Remember: I can keep this up just as long as you can. And you know what?

Rage and riot all you like … but these, and other pictures that may offend you, aren’t going away. Ever.
