The New Theology

Saddam Hussein died without killing any Jews, Christians, or Arab infidels... so he doesn't get the 72 Virgins?! What a bummer.
We commented on the "72 virgins or are they raisins?" controversy in an earlier cartoon. We've commented on the "Hanging video" in another cartoon.

Today's cartoon raises a deeper question.

Is this blood-thirsty "Heavenly sex for murders on Earth" version of Islam a "New" theology?

We were always taught that Islam was a peaceful and tolerant sister religion. Were we wrong? Or has something changed? Has Islam morphed into a "New" theology? A theology of suicidal anger, homicidal attacks, intolerance, and anti-Semitic fanaticism? Has "real" Islam been hijacked by crazies...

. . .or is this what Islam always was?

That's the question.
So what's your answer?
