The Joy of Curmudgeonry: Idemeneo and the Poltroons

Link: The Joy of Curmudgeonry: Idemeneo and the Poltroons.

It seems to me that Kirsten Harms has profoundly insulted the religion of peace by assuming that a scene in the opera Idomeneo, in which the King of Crete brandishes the severed heads of Poseidon, Jesus, Buddha and Mohammed, would lead to Muslim violence.

Is it not disgracefully Islamophobic to assume, as the director of the Deutsche Oper has clearly done, that Muslims are necessarily more violent than Christians or Buddhists? Of course it is. It may even be racist.

It may also be true, but that has never concerned the Islamo-fascists.

So Kirsten, since you are damned if you do and damned if you don't, surely you might as well be damned for your integrity as your cowardice?
