Religious Tolerance and Islam

While "religious tolerance" is on the lips of Muslims who consider themselves slighted by the Pope's recent comments, we see these examples of the "tolerance" of Islam...

Go to Yankees Go Home to read and see it all!

Meanwhile, Islamic websites are hosting "Kill Bush" video games:

Red type is mine.

From CNN:

-- A video game that prompts players to kill characters that look like President Bush has been posted on a number of Islamist Web sites.

The game is called "Quest for Bush," or "The Night of Bush Capturing."

Not surprising. High-tech effigy burning, if you ask me.

Players are prompted to advance through six missions against soldiers who look like Bush, followed by a seventh mission against a character that looks like the president that takes place in a desert-like region. During the game, jihadist songs are played in the background.

I, for one, am enjoying my "Kill Ahmadinejad" video game... No, wait... WE DON'T DO THAT HERE!!!

The video game says it is produced by the Global Islamic Media Front, which is described by the SITE Institute as "a jihadist mouthpiece organization."

I'm sure that they're just referring to that "inner spiritual struggle." Riiiight.

SITE -- Search for International Terrorist Entities -- is a research organization that specializes in terrorists and terrorist groups.

The Bush game appears to be based on previously released games. One called "Quest for al Qaeda" was issued after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and another called "Quest for Saddam," issued after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

The latest version of the game contains the phrase, "Quest for Bush."

Game missions include "Jihad Beginning," "A Day at the Desert," "Jihad Growing Up," "Americans' Hell," "Searching for Bush" and "Bush Hunted Like a Rat."

I see a theme. Heh.

The game uses a number of languages: some descriptions are written in English, others are in Arabic and others are in both languages. Labels on boxes containing gas masks in the game say, "Fabrique en France," French for "Made in France."

That's probably a paid endorsement, you know!

In the first mission, the player is in an American military camp, where pictures of Bush, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Iraqi Shiite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani are plastered on the walls.

The player starts out armed solely with an assault rifle. During the game, the player's goal is to obtain a shotgun, a grenade launcher and a machine gun before advancing to a final fight against a character that looks like the president.

The game appears to be inspired by "Doom," a video game released in 1993 in which the player -- wielding a weapon on the video screen -- has to collect other weapons and ammunition, slay a series of armed opponents and then find the path to the next level. Victory is achieved once all the enemies have been vanquished.

So there you have it, folks! Another sterling example of peace and tolerance from the "non-violent" religion of Islam.
