AFTER ALL, ONLY PEOPLE DESERVE RIGHTS:

The New York Times Laments "A Sadly Wary Misunderstanding of Muslim-Americans." (Martin Peretz, September 4, 2010, New Republic)

[F]rankly, Muslim life is cheap, most notably to Muslims. And among those Muslims led by the Imam Rauf there is hardly one who has raised a fuss about the routine and random bloodshed that defines their brotherhood. So, yes, I wonder whether I need honor these people and pretend that they are worthy of the privileges of the First Amendment which I have in my gut the sense that they will abuse.

And really, who can argue with their viscera?
