Media and the Moslems

"Shortly atfter the London Tube bombings in 2005, a reader of Tim Blair, The Sydney Daily Telegraph's columnist wag, sent him a note-perfect parody of a typical newspaper headline: 'British Muslims Fear Repercussions Over Tomorrow's Train Bombing.' ... This time round--Mumbai--it was the Associated Press that filed a story about how Muslims 'found themselves on the defensive once again about bloodshed linked to their religion.' ... For the Wall Street Journal, Tom Gross produced a jaw-dropping round-up of Mumbai media coverage: The discovery that, for the first time in an Indian terrorist atrocity, Jews had been attacked, tortured and killed produced from the New York Times a serene befuddlememt: "it is not known if the Jewish center was strategically chosen or if it was an accidental hostage scene.' ... An 'accidental hostage scene' that one of the 'practitioners' just happened to stumble upon? 'I must be the luckiest jihadist in town. What are the odds?' ... The 'fairer' we are to the, ah inflamed militant practitioners, the unfairer we get to everyone else. ... And yet we take it for granted that Pakistani 'militants' in a long-running border dispute with India would take time out of their hectic schedule to kill Jews. In going to ever more baroque lengths to avoid saying 'Islamic' or 'Muslim' or 'terrorist', we have somehow managed to internalise the pathologies of these men. ... Last week, a Canadian critic reprimanded me for failing to understand that Muslims feel 'vulnerable'," Mark Steyn, 6 December 2008 at http://www.ocregister.com/articles/mumbai-muslims-time-2248410-jews-muslim.

The only thing missing is that apparently there were roughly 30 attackers that escaped. The one caught and the nine killed were but a fraction of the total assault.

This was not a suicide mission, but a commando mission. There will be a team returning with a large number of veterans.

If they get enough trained, they will all take subways to Manhattan. Forget the rubber boats.

Stop blaming Islam, i.e. the religion of peeeeaaazeee.....Stop quoting the Quran which clearly states that the infidels must submit or die to the "righteous" people of Allah, oh the most Merciful (except of course to the Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhist, etc.). Stop, stop, stop ... in the name of multiculturalism and multi-rubbishness and multi-this-and-multi-that...

Why can't we all leave in peace? We will, only under the sharia.

P.S. One day, the true Muslims who read, revere and practice the Quran will get their hands to the socialist-secularist scum that infested the FORMER Western Europe and is attacking our Republic.

May God all save us.

Oh, one more thing:

Wait until one day the Muslim thugs (again, who read and follow the Quran as it was written and understood in the 7th century Arabian deserts) will gang rape of those liberal media chicks. Let's see what the reaction will be. I suspect we will hear about "understanding," "economic depravity," and how G.W. Bush caused this....

I'd prefer a stand up fight with the muzzies than what the banksters do to us.

BS:
We have a fine opportunity here. I understand GSG's CNC guillotine needs sharpening. The Saudis like beheading people. Now if we could induce Robert Rubin and Ben Bernanke to go to Saudi! Wow! The Saudis can have two "double-beheaders". Huh? Rubin and Bernanke are both Jewish, think of the Saudis ecstasy at the thought of beheading these guys. The Saudis will pay plenty, yet can make a fortune from this. They put the beheadings on pay-per-view.
