Generosity and Tolerance

The filmmaker who allegedly offended people in the Middle East has been sentenced to one year in prison. Daniel Greenfield writes at Front Page Magazine that it is all a matter of perspective.
Sure we criticize Obama a lot and often justly. But it’s important that we also show our appreciation for living in a country that Obama described as “one of the largest Muslim nations in the world” where people who offend Islamic theocracy get sentenced to a mere one year in prison.

Can we conceive of any other Muslim leader showing such generosity and tolerance as to sentence a man who offended his faith to only one year in prison, without any additional beheadings or mutilations?

Obama may be a terrible leader by American standards, but compared to Assad, Erdogan, Morsi, Ahmadinejad and Karzai, he’s really not so bad.
