"An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last."
KABUL, Afghanistan — “Demonstrators incensed at the burning of a Koran by a Florida pastor opened fire on a United Nations office Friday in northern Afghanistan, killing 12 people, including three foreign UN workers and five Nepalese UN guards, officials said. Two of the foreign dead reportedly were beheaded, Reuters reported.”
Pakistan (you know, the country that "Campaign Obama" said we should invade after we got more Arabic translators, but you didn’t hear about that because the media was too busy attributing Tina Fey quotes to Sarah Palin) had its United Nations ambassador alertly respond to the Afghan attacks, as well as violence in his own country, (the killing of two Christians and burning of dozens of Bibles in an attack by Muslims on a Christian church) by blaming the crimes on the pastors of the Baptist Church in Gainesville. He expressed, “…grave concern that the despicable act had severely hurt the feelings of 1.5 billion Muslims around the world.”
That’s right boys and girls. If you “hurt their feelings”, Muslims are perfectly justified in killing you, kind of like a giant "Get Out of Jail Free" card, and it’s all your fault. That’s almost enough to make me convert. I could probably come up with a looonnnggg list of people who “hurt my feelings”.
The Paki ambassador also said that the international community needed to "create the necessary conditions for ending such acts of bigotry and hatred." He noted that the United Nations' Organization of the Islamic Conference had raised the Koran burning incident in Washington, D.C., and encouraged the United States Government to keep a close eye on such incidents “towards ensuring the exercise of restraint.” Killings and terrorism apparently don't need "exercising of restraint", however. He also ominously added that the UN delegation has not yet proposed court action against the church or its pastors, but that could change.
Members of Congress have also implied they might “do something" to protect their phony-baloney jobs by further trying to appeasing the Muslim world. Our old pal Dingy Harry Reid promised to “look into” what could be done about Koran burning. Republican Senator Lindsey Grahamnesty had this to blither: “I wish we could find a way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we're in a war." (Didn’t you get the memo, Lindsey? This is not war; that was a Bush thing. We are now engaged in kinetic military activity.) And all of them apparently missed that opening phrase of the First Amendment that says, “Congress shall make no law…”
Court action for burning a Koran? You betcha. And why not? What’s American law and that pesky ol’ Constitution anyway. Not much, according to Federal Circus Court Judge (I just can’t bring myself to call them “justices”) Richard “the Dick” Nielsen. The judge recently ruled on a civil court case concerned with the bickering between two Muslim groups over the use of funds at a Florida mosque, saying, “This case will proceed under Ecclesiastical Islamic law pursuant to the Qur’an.”
Oh boy. What can we look forward to when sharia law takes precedence over our own laws of the land? You need look no further than Bangladesh. There (where sharia law is “outlawed”, BTW), a 14-year-old Muslim girl named Hena was lashed to death. Her crime? Being raped by her 40-year-old cousin. The local imam pronounced the girl guilty of “adultery” and sentenced her to 101 public lashes. She lasted for approximately 70 before falling unconscious. Hena later died in the hospital, where the initial autopsy report ruled her death a “suicide”.
Women's Rights organizations in the U.S. once more responded instantly and forcefully to this atrocity with…THUNDEROUS SILENCE.
Meanwhile, back on the appeasement front, American servicewomen in Afghanistan are being “encouraged” to wear Muslim headscarves. Pentagon weenies stress that it is not an order, just “encouragement”. Those who have been in the service know how that works via the age-old military axiom: “We can’t make you do it, but we can sure make you wish you had.” For all the hollow talk about not “putting our troops at risk”, not wearing a Kevlar helmet apparently does not fall into that category. A Taliban spokesman said, “Even this appeasement effort will still hurt our feelings, but we won’t complain as it will make head-shots much easier for us.”
Alert U.S. media hacks immediately responded to these outrages against their own with…THUNDEROUS SILENCE.
The kind of thunderous silence you heard from them when recently in Yemen al Qaeda stole everything not nailed down at an ammunition plant, and then booby-trapped the place, blowing up 75 local civilians.
The kind of thunderous silence we heard about when, the same week as the riots in Afghanistan, Islamic terrorists in Iraq, reeling from hurt feelings, invaded an office building, killing 56 and wounding 98. Once more, the killing of a female Reuters/CNN reporter was hardly worthy of note to her media comrades. (I can’t help but think that if Dubya was still president, the media would have been dancing in the blood in the streets and shouting it to the heavens.)
The kind of thunderous silence that was reported when, in Africa’s Ivory Coast, the on-the-ground Roman Catholic charity Cartitas reported, “…more than 1000 people were massacred in Duekoue. A Caritas spokesman said Caritas workers visited the town and reported seeing a neighbourhood filled with bodies of people who had been shot and hacked to death with machetes.” Not worth reporting as most of the victims were Christian and most of the killers were Muslim. We don’t want any hurt feelings. The UN “peace-keeping” contingent in-country, BTW, hadn’t yet heard about the massacre, let alone stepped in.
Not to worry about your own safety though, fellow serfs. At the federal government level, Senate Majority Dickhead Richard Turban, er, I mean Durbin, will also be holding a meeting of his newly created Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights to address “a spike in anti-Muslim bigotry in the last year that demands closer attention.” Never mind the fact that FBI crime stats show that of “religiously motivated hate crimes” anti-Islamic incidents accounted for less than 10% while anti-Semitic crimes were over 70%. Pay no attention to that man behind the Koran.
So, rest easy my fellow Americans. Fed.gov and the liberal lemmings of the mass media are standing guard, 24/7, 364 days a year, to protect us from ourselves by feeding the crocodiles. Only these crocodiles have access to Kalashnikovs, high explosives and shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles. Other than that, there's really not much difference. Neville Chamberlain would be so proud of us.
