Amateur video footage of one of the attacks, posted on Facebook, shows armed men, some wearing camouflage, casually kicking over headstones and using sledge hammers to hit the Cross of Remembrance.
One man can be heard saying “this is a grave of a Christian” as he uproots a headstone from the ground.
Another voice says of those buried in the cemetery: “These are dogs.”
Imagine the shock and outrage were Australians to seize Muslims and behead them in retaliation. Why? Because we expect civilized behavior from western civilizations and expect nothing but barbarity from Middle Eastern inhabitants. Is this the “soft bigotry of low expectations” or just the weary recognition of reality, based on sad experience? Ponder that while you wait for the Muslim clerics of Libya to apologize for and demand the trial and punishment of the perpetrators of this impious act.
