Robert Spencer on Cartoon Rage etc
Share
clear

It is a widespread misconcpetion that Muslim rage and violence over cartoons, books, the Pope and so forth is the fault of the persone exercising free speech.  Not so, of course. Robert Spencer puts it very neatly:

[I]f someone flies into a murderous rage because of a perfectly reasonable action, the reasonable actor does not thereby become responsible.

If I meet someone who says that he will kill a person every time I step on a crack in the sidewalk, I do not thereby become responsible for the deaths of those people he murders as a result.

Simple, you would think, yet so many fail to grasp it.
