If You're Looking for Something to be Angry About ...,

UNICEF say 1,600 people were killed in Syria last week; other reports say 5,000 died in the month of August.

The overwhelming majority of these dead were Muslims. And yes, I know, many were killed by the opposition. In a civil war, both sides kill. It's the killing we need to address.

I am not a Muslim, but everything I know about the Prophet Muhammad, may God Bless Him and Grant Him Peace, from reading the Sira and the Hadith, tells me that he would be more concerned by this number than the juvenile effort by some ignorant racists who can't even make a decent video.
