Should Jews Start Issuing Fatwas in the name of Fairness and Equality?

The resolution calls upon states to protect freedom of religion, to counter offensive expression through education, interfaith dialogue, and public debate, and to prohibit discrimination, profiling, and hate crimes, but not to criminalize speech unless there is an incitement to imminent violence.Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, July 15, 2011

Hillary Clinton and the other co-chairmen of that meeting (OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu and then Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu) would have you believe they were defending all religions. The truth is they have no such interest; their objective is to criminalize anti-Islamic speech only. In the interest of fairness, if they are going to remain silent in the face of Islamic fatwas and hate speech against Jews, perhaps they should start supporting Jewish fatwas against terrorists.

As the Muslim world is up in arms over the anti-Muhammad cartoons published by Charlie Hebdo, a Muslim cartoonist’s work that depicts the murder of Jews shortly after the real events take place is cheered by Muslims without so much as a peep from the likes of Clinton or the OIC.

According to a report by INN:

As is the norm following such attacks, 23-year-old terrorist Hamza Mohammed Hassan Matruk, a resident of Tulkarem, has been widely praised on social media by Palestinian Arabs and their supporters for carrying this morning’s stabbing spree targeting Israeli commuters on the number 40 bus in central Tel Aviv.

But anti-Israel propagandists appear to have fine-tuned their skills to a remarkable degree this time; barely two hours passed since Matruk’s bloody rampage, which left more than a dozen people injured, and Palestinian Arab media outlets were already churning out cartoons glorifying the act.

Two images making the rounds so far Wednesday are both drawn by cartoonist Bahaa Yaseen, a prolific anti-Israel caricaturist whose gruesome trademark is the ironic juxtaposition of bloody terrorist attacks carried out by smiling, friendly-looking terrorists.

The first cartoon shows one of his trademark, kefiyyeh-wearing terrorists grinning while holding a knife dripping with blood and joyously celebrating the number of victims in the morning attack (at the time only 10 people were reported injured; that number was later raised to at least 12.)

As reported earlier, the Israelis have issued an indictment for incitement. Compare what Charlie Hebdo published and the reaction of the Muslim world to the words of this Islamic preacher:
