Give me an ever-lovin’ break, will ya obama?
If it’s true that we are not at war with Islam, I have to ask:
WHY THE HELL NOT!??
Islam is sure as hell at war with us.
“The men were arrested in an elaborate sting operation at around 9 p.m. on Wednesday after planting what they believed to be bombs in cars outside the Riverdale Temple, a Reform synagogue, and the nearby Riverdale Jewish Center, an Orthodox synagogue.
The men did not know that the bombs, obtained with the help of an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, were fake.
The four men arrested are all Muslim, a law enforcement official said. Mr. Cromitie, whose parents had lived in Afghanistan before his birth, had told the informant that he was upset about the war in Afghanistan and that that he wanted to do “something to America.” Mr. Cromitie stated “the best target” — the World Trade Center — “was hit already,” according to the complaint.
Mr. Kelly said: “They stated that they wanted to commit jihad. They were disturbed about what was happening in Afghanistan and Pakistan, that Muslims were being killed. They were making statements that Jews were killed in this attack and that would be all right — that sort of thing.”
Well the New York Times can choose to use the headline “Police Say Terror Suspects Acted Alone,” and use their old names instead of their new ones : Abdul, Daoud, Hamsa, and Amin in order to keep us all singing the One World Happy Song, but the facts are there for anyone who can read:
“They wanted to commit jihad. They were disturbed about what was happening in Afghanistan and Pakistan, that Muslims were being killed.”
“Authorities concluded that the suspects wanted to detonate a car loaded with C-4 plastic explosives outside a temple in the Bronx. They also planned to use Stinger missiles to shoot down military planes at the New York Air National Guard Base at Stewart Airport in Newburgh, the complaint alleged.”
And via persephone, we have more evidence that trying to draw a distinction between islam and terrorism is a fool’s errand. The United States may not WANT to be at war with Islam. We may WISH that a critical mass of peace-loving Muslim countries and islamic leaders and people would make it reasonable to draw that distinction, to make it plausible for our foreign policy to differentiate between islam and islamicists — But THEY do not.
We may not WANT a war with Islam, but we HAVE a war with Islam, because Islam is at war with us.
I want a president who is not a coward. A leader who will stand up in front of the world and say, “I don’t hate Islam. My father was a muslim. But I am the president of the United States and my message to Islamic countries and to muslims everywhere is clear: If you, your governments, or your leaders wage war on us, we will retaliate in every place and in every way we can until you understand that the forces of your religious fundamentalism will not be allowed to threaten democracy, freedom, and peace in the United States.”
But we don’t have a brave leader. We have a coward — a man who reads the nuanced words of someone else off a teleprompter and whose only strategy for winning is to play all sides against each other while remaining above the fray so that he is always the last man standing.
barack obama: the only person who looks bad compared to Dick freakin’ Cheney. Hey President Jackass! Heckuva job you’re doin’ at rehabilitating the legacy of George W. Bush and Darth Vader Dick Cheney!
Today’s Rundown of Why Islam Sucks (as if the above were not enough for one day)
- Muslim dentist insists patients obey Islamic dress codes: Omer Butt, 32, is a dentist at the Unsworth Smile Clinic, in Bury, Lancashire, a clinic funded by taxpayers via the National Health Service, and also the brother of the notorious Hassan Butt, former spokesman of “Al-Muhajiroun.” Butt posted put a sign in his waiting room informing women under his care – Muslim and non-Muslim alike – that they must wear a hijab or find another dentist, while men had to remove any gold jewelry. Tom Kelly in the Daily Mail notes that Butt insisted on these rules to the point of providing hijabs and abandoning at least two patients in pain when they refused his terms. After patients complained, the General Dental Council got involved.
- Dutch Muslims want sex-separated hospital rooms: Muslim organizations in the Dutch town of Breda are demanding that men and women at Amphia Hospital not be roomed together. “Many Muslim women don’t think it’s nice based on religious conviction to have a half-naked man in the bed next to them,” says a spokesman for the Immigrant Council and the Aarahman mosque. Sex-separate rooms were usual in Dutch hospitals until recently but coed rooms are now the rule.
- Aborting Girl Fetuses: In a recent case in Sweden a woman twice aborted her baby after finding out the fetus was a girl, reports Svenska Dagbladet. The woman, who had previously given birth to several daughters, asked for an amniotic fluid check, saying she was worried and wanted to establish the sex of the fetus. After finding out it was a girl, she aborted the pregnancy immediately. She soon afterward got pregnant again, and again aborted the fetus once she discovered it was a girl. The case caused strong reactions from doctors and nurses who want to know whether they’re obligated to reveal the sex of the fetus. A senior official in the industry says that there was no medical reason for the abortion, but that the nurse went ahead with the amniotic fluid check. “They’ve experienced having been forced into a corner and contributing to an abortion on the grounds that the fetus had the ‘wrong’ sex,” the official says. Doctors and nurses are now demanding guidelines on how they should proceed with such cases. In a previous case, a man was sentenced to a fine of 4,000 Swedish kroner for threatening to put a pistol to a doctor’s head if she didn’t tell him the fetus’ sex, according to Svenska Dagbladet.
