Islam - Western Media Has Wrong Image

Ali Aswad Al-Aseri, Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan says ‘Western media projecting wrong image of Islam"

I agree and a commenter at Rantburg sums it up well.

"In a way, I quite agree with him, the "western media" is projecting the wrong image of Islam, they're far too sympathetic, apologetic, swooning, and ass-kissing in their coverage."

Among other things, the ambassador had this to say:

“There is no provision for terrorism in Islam. Terrorists have no religion. Islam is a religion of peace, brotherhood and tolerance,” he asserted.

Well Mr. Ambassador it seems some Muslims in Britain practice a different form of Islam.

Muslim protesters today called for the bombing of New York in a demonstration outside the US embassy in London.

In Saudi Arabia the Saudi government desecrates and burns Bibles that its security forces confiscate at immigration points into the kingdom or during raids on Christian expatriates worshiping privately.

The Bible in Saudi Arabia may get a person killed, arrested, or deported. In September 1993, Sadeq Mallallah, 23, was beheaded in Qateef on a charge of apostasy for owning a Bible.

And what about all these Muslim crimes against Christians? Crimes like using the Bible as toilet paper, burning ancient Torah scrolls and churches.

Doesn't sound like peace and tolerance to me but is sure sounds like the Islam I know.


Maybe the ambassador would care to explain why women in Saudi Arabia can't drive and this:

“There are many problems that come up whenever we want to discuss anything to do with women in our country. We do not even know how to discuss things on their behalf since they are not allowed to express themselves in our society.
