Bruce Bawer kindly sends in an Islamic tolerance alert from Bosnia:
September 25, 2008 (11:30 A.M., CET): Jyllands-Posten reports that yesterday, shortly after the opening ceremonies of a gay festival in Sarajevo — the first such event ever held in Bosnia — Muslim men fell upon participants and beat them up, shouting “Kill the gays” and “Allahu akbar.” Some were dragged out of their cars. Among those assaulted were journalists; worst hurt was a visitor from Denmark. There is no mention of the number of victims or assailants, though the report indicates that it took a “massive” number of police to stop the violence.
The story has been picked up by VG in Norway, but I’ve looked for it in vain in several major American and British newspapers.
No surprise there. As far as the mainstream media in the West is concerned, this story has the wrong perps, and so is no story at all.
UPDATE: As the second commenter below notes, this story has indeed been picked up by mainstream sources — apparently after Bruce wrote his memo. I apologize for the wrong assumption — although it was founded upon numerous examples of mainstream sources ignoring or downplaying jihadist activity.
