Why Does the Crucifix "Provoke" Muslims?
by Raymond Ibrahim
The same "provocation," a crucifix, that prompted Muslim students in the United States to complain about "human rights" abuses at a private Catholic university, prompted Muslims in Egypt to murder a man.
First, the American incident. According to Fox News:
Representing the lawsuit is John F. Banzhaf III, a George Washington University professor, whose website boasts that his "enemies" call him a "Legal-Terrorist" and "the Osama bin Laden of Torts." He asserts that Muslim students are "particularly offended" because they have to "meditate" at the school's chapels and cathedral, where they pray while "having to stare up and be looked down upon by a cross of Jesus."
