One Or The Other

Regarding the whole ‘Muslim/sharia burial’ thing for OBL, here are two propositions.
1. Osama bin Laden did not represent true Islam, but a perversion of Islam. Islam is peaceful and his acts in the name of their religion were an insult to Muslims everywhere. The vast majority of Muslims do not endorse him and he does not speak for them.
2. It was right and proper to care about giving OBL a proper ‘Muslim burial’, whatever some jackass claims that to mean, because after all, he was a Muslim and if he hadn’t gotten a ‘Muslim burial’, a lot of Muslims the world over would be enraged, on account of how they identify with him – their co-religionist – so much.
Now then. Need I really point out that you can only pick one of these?
