My main concern is the reaction to events. Not that I'm surprised by the denials of the obvious but that the denials of the obvious are now so predictable.
Let's just do a partial recap of some of the horrors perpetrated by Islamic terrorists over the last eight years. (These are just some of the more famous ones. For a more extensive list go here.)
9/11. Muslim terrorists fly planes into the world trade center killing almost 3000 people on American soil.
Bali nightclub bombings. 202 dead, 300 injured.
Train bombings in Madrid, Spain. 191 Dead, 1460 injured.
The London Subway bombings. 53 dead, 700 injured.
Mumbai India train bombings. 209 dead, 700 injured.
Another terrorist attack in Mumbai with armed gunmen killing 174.
Throw in "honor killings" in Britain, Canada and the United States and, by golly, I'm beginning to see a pattern here and peaceful religion, it ain't.
And now the latest. Nadil Malik Hasan, a U. S. Army Major, goes berserk, screaming "Allahu Akbar" and opening fire with two handguns, killing 13 and wounding 30. This was after the Army knew he was posting screeds on the internet about US aggression against Muslims and expressing sympathy for suicide bombing. Not to mention in his capacity as an Army psychiatrist he was spreading his pro jihad poison to the soldiers that he was treating. I won't even bring up the convenience store video of Hasan shopping in full muslim garb.
Nidal Malik Hasan. Crazed, murderous Islamic terrorist. Who with malice aforethought shot to death 12 of his fellow soldiers and 1 civilian security officer.
Nidal Malik Hasan. Innocent muslim soldier seduced by American gun culture who was sold defective pistols that went off by themselves accidently killing 13. NRA and lax Texas gun laws are blamed. Congress to call for hearings.
And what have we been hearing from the lame brain libs like Chris Matthews and the New York Times editorial board? Why, how important it is to find out his motive, of course. Are you shitting me? OK, I'll say it. He was a muslim and he hated infidels so he ginned up his own personal jihad and killed as many of them as he could. There's your motive. That wasn't so hard was it? I am so sick of the reaction after any terrorist attack when the same old script gets trotted out. First, the FBI or some other Homeland Security apparatchik says, "we have no evidence that this had any connection with terrorism." This 10 minutes after the incident. Second, some political leader, usually the president, says something along the lines that "this doesn't reflect in any way on Islam." (Bush was the worst with this load of crap. Every time I heard him robotically repeat that "Islam is a religion of peace" bullshit I wanted to throw something at the TV.) Third, a muslim leader or group (CAIR please stand up) will issue a statement with a brief show of sympathy for the victims and then will start in on a long litany of grievances about how muslims are discriminated against with the usual blame-it-all-on-Israel boilerplate. Shit, you could set your watch by it.
By the way, why is it that we never see crowds of muslims marching and carrying signs that say things like. "Not In Our Name" and "We Don't Believe in Jihad" and "We Love America and We're Americans First". There are supposedly 4 million muslims in this country. Where is the mass outcry from them about the supposed takeover of their religion by crazy fanatics? (Cue sound of crickets...chirp chirp.)
What's particularly disheartening about this particular episode is how frozen by political correctness even our armed forces have become. This sad sack shitbag should have been 86'd the first time it became evident that he considered himself a promoter of Islamic ideology rather than an officer in the US Army. But no, that would have been discriminatory, wouldn't it? (Your tax dollars paid thousands for his medical education, by the way.)
So after it's all over we all go back into our little cocoon and hope that it doesn't happen again. Which it always does and the whole thing starts over again.
Here are some pictures of the only religion that says. "If you deny that Islam is a religion of peace or make cartoons about us, we will kill you."
At least if you're wearing a burka it takes
some of the sting out of being hit by a stick.
The madrassa dropout rate? 0%
No ambiguity here.
This guy is the Zelig of Islam.
He's at so many protests
he's been nicknamed "Islamic Rage Boy"
Note from TFG. For some reason when I pull photos from certain sites it fucks with the post and gives me this weird font size. My computer skills are limited and I can't figure out how to fix it. I guess you can hit that increase the font size thingy if you want or put on some glasses.
