Muslims blame Newsweek for riots
Grand Mufti Adul-Aziz al-Sheik issued his statement a day after Newsweek retracted its report, saying a full inquiry still should be launched "to alleviate the sorrow that befell Muslims." This is just plain ridiculous. It is simply another example of Muslims placing the blame on someone else. So, Newsweek's article about desecrating the Quran angered many Muslims. This does not mean that Newsweek should be held responsible for the riots. Why can't these zealots take responsibility for their own problems? Oh, wait, that is one of the reasons they attacked the U.S. on 911. Same symptoms, same disease.
