NO ONE MINDED ABU GHRAIB:

Nepalese attack mosque after executions in Iraq (BINAJ GURUBACHARYA, September 2, 2004, Chicago Sun-Times)

Nepal's government imposed an indefinite curfew and appealed for calm Wednesday after thousands of demonstrators ransacked a mosque and clashed with police in the capital to protest the slaying of 12 Nepalese hostages by Iraqi militants.

One demonstrator died late Wednesday after being wounded during the clashes, said doctors at the Bir Hospital in Katmandu. Three more protesters were in serious condition.

''We want revenge,'' the protesters shouted as they stormed the Jame mosque -- the only Muslim house of worship in the capital of this largely Hindu nation.


Amazingly, you can still find people who are worried that we'll turn the Muslim world against us if we're too aggressive in Reforming it. We're not the ones who should fear world opinion.

It's already against us. And everybody else.

A non-issue
