Does it Ever Seem Like...
...it's the lunatics that are running the asylum? This is a picture of muslim youth rioting in Paris. You know Paris, where the U.N. took all the Palestinians' land and kicked them out and interned them in refugee camps. Oh, never mind, somewhere else. But anyhow they are mad and they aren't going to take it anymore.
They're mad about the cartoons (still) and in a bow to their cultural sensibilities (because we all know how sensitive they are to others!) the editor of a college newspaper in Illinois was FIRED for printing the Mohammed cartoons. The article is here. So much for freedom of the press, not mention academic freedom. Can't upset the adherents of the religion of peace and brotherhood. Because if we do you can see what will happen.
And in this article the Rabbi of Rome made a historic visit to a mosque. Anyhow you can read about it here.
Doesn't it seem like everyone is trying to curry favor with the Islamists and in exchange- what? A warm fuzzy feeling of superiority? A smug satisfaction that we serve the interests of justice? And to really highlight the irony the United States invasion and takeover of Iraq is called, are you ready for this, a failure of leadership?
As a result of sheer population and immigration, misguided policies that purport to be culturally sensitive and misplaced pity, the Islamists are expanding their political power exponentially. After 9-11 it wasn't American and its victims that were pitied, it was the Islamists who might be linked to terrorism. Unfairly. Right.
