Islamic Hypocrisy the same as the rest of the world

Islam is currently showing its own two-facedness. What it would not allow against itself, it would clearly allow against Christianity and Judaism. When Muhammed is caricatured as a terrorist, and rightly so, the whole Islamic world rises in one great uproar against it. Yet, when they themselves desecrate churches, it means absolutely nothing!
It should become clear to any normal thinking person that the tag of "Religion of peace" that President Bush gave them a couple of years back, simply will not stick! Islam is a conquering religion, preferably at the tip of the sword. Do as they say, or pay severely for dissenting from them.
John Piper himself opined on this:
"Am I missing it, or is there an unusual silence in the blogosphere about the Muslim outrage over the cartoons of Mohammed. To me this cries out for the observation that when artists put the crucifix in a flask of urine, Christians were grieved and angered, but not one threatened to kill anyone. Our longing is to convert the blasphemers with the Good News of Christ's death and resurrection, not kill them. Our faith is based on One who was reviled not just in cartoons but in reality and received it patiently for the salvation of the cartoonists. These riots are filled with intimations about the glorious difference between Christ and Mohammed, and between the way of Christ and the way of Islam. And the cowing of the press around the world and the US government is ominous for the fear we are under of Islam--not just extremist Islam. I do not respect the teachings of Islam which when followed devoutly lead to destruction. So I have been pondering which will take me out first, Islam, Uncle Sam, or cancer. No matter, all authority belongs to Jesus. I just want to bear faithful witness to his glorious gospel of peace to the end." HT: Justin Taylor.
Liberals will quickly tell us that the Danish newspaper that printed the cartoons of Muhammed is wrong for having done so, yet they are the same ones that will either blaspheme against Christ or regularly malign Christians. It seems to me that they are just as two-faced as those protesting the Muhammed cartoons. Perhaps liberals are scared of being blown up by Muslims and know that Christians do not go around blowing people up for blaspheming Christ!
Just thinking...
