no condemnations, please

As a follow-up to my earlier disagreement with Rabbi Hirschfield, it’s worth looking at what other muslim bloggers in the Islamsphere have to say about the New York Times article about the Hezbollah death shrine in southern Lebanon:

Angry Arab As’ad: What is Robert Worth’s point in this article? That Arab children love and enjoy terrorism?”

Arabic Media Shack: “Israel used and celebrates the terrorists who fought for its cause just
as much as the Arab side does.  For example, if you can prove that you
were a member of the Stenn Gang or Irgun during the Mandate era, the
Israeli government  today will give you a medal.  That’s celebration of
terrorism just as much as what is being said in the Mughnoya piece. “

AMS goes on to ask whether we can have equal opportunity condemnation, but actually I prefer that we ask no one to condemn anything. This incessant “Condemn This” routine is tiring.
