Why Is Anybody Shocked at Muslim Barbarism?

Islamic State’s shocking barbarity prompts calls for world to act | Fox News

Shocking accounts of medieval brutality — including video of kneeling Iraqis being gunned down, a Twitter image of a young jihadist holding a severed head and threats by ISIS to take its savagery to the White House — have prompted desperate calls for the international community to stop the fanatical Islamic group.

I just don’t get it.  Why would anybody who’s been paying attention find Muslim barbarism “shocking?”

It’s been going on for 1500 years.

Once upon a time we understood that.  Apparently in these times when congenial fantasies are substituted for hard realities that is no longer the case.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
