Not to justify the Taliban shooting the girl, for indeed, that is a vile and despicable thing.
Nonetheless, the US media is making a very big deal of this incident, all the while ignorning the fact that the USA, a supposed Christian nation, is shooting drone bombs into Pakistan, which kill 49 civilians for every 1 alleged terrorist killed.
So yes, Islam is very silly and, in the final estimate, evil. But that is how I also feel about Christianity.
The crime by the Islamicists against one child is being played up, while the greater crime of industrial scale killing of thousands, committed by the USA, is being studiously ignored.
I love Ricky Gervais, but the context of this event is quite fascinating.
