Some, yes. I wouldn't want to presume bad faith in every single case. But do you deny that there are some liberals who are loath to criticize anything that happens to be Islamic or non-Western? Liberals protest a lot of things, usually things they can't do anything about, but protesting such atrocities remains rare.

When it's Newt Gingrich, not liberals, who are protesting the lack of women's rights in Sharia law, you know you've been outflanked badly. So my advice to liberals is: be principled.
