Oxymorons ....

They are all around us. Military Intelligence, Jumbo Shrimp, Soft Rock, etc. Sometimes they are funny, other times, however they can be distressing. An example of the latter is the recent "Religion of Peace Demonstration" in London (at least that is how it was reported in the American press). Now that title is definitely an oxymoron as the demonstraters were carrying signs bearing the following slogans:

"Slay those who insult Islam"

"Europe will pay. Demolition is on its way."

"Behead those who insult Islam"

"Exterminate those who slander Islam"

"Europe take some lessons from 9/11"

"Freedom go to Hell"

"Europe, you will pay. Your 9/11 is on its way!!"

"Be prepared for the REAL Holocaust"

"Massacre those who insult Islam"

These are certainly not the sentiments of a "Religion of Peace." While Islam is a religion which teaches peace, the terrorist dogma reflected in these protestors' signs represents a perversion of Islam. I do not believe that these radical fascist terrorist represent the Islamic faith. They are no different than the Nazis.
