Fight the good fight

What an interesting day.

Europe's Muslims it seems, are headed off to Iraq to fight the good Jihad and kill Americans.

Intelligence officials fear that for a new generation of disaffected European Muslims, Iraq could become what Afghanistan, Bosnia and Chechnya are for European Islamic militants in past decades:a galvanizing cause that sends idealistic young men abroad, trains them and puts them in touch with a more radical global network of terrorists. In the past, many young Europeans who fought in those wars came back to Europe to plot terrorist attacks at home.


It isn't hard to understand how this happens. In Canada, a 'respected' Muslim leader nonchalantly declared that all Israelis are targets of terror attacks. His rationale? Since there is a draft in Israel, all Israelis are fair game, at all times.

"Israel has a people's army and a draft and therefore they should be onsidered legitimate targets. They are part of the occupying power, and alestinians consider them targets for suicide bombers as well as other means," Mr. Elmasry said.


This coming from a tenured professor. Lovely.

Also, as I wrote about yesterday, an Vancouver Imam is coming under scrutiny by the RCMP for 'hate speech.' Not your garden variety hate speech, but the rabid vitriol of evil.

Mr. Kathrada told his followers the Koran calls on them to spread the ord of Islam by fighting.

"
That is what is known as the offensive jihad. And there's a good reason for that. It is in order to establish security on this earth. It is so that the word of Allah will be the superior word," he said.


"I have no problem calling the Christians and the Jews and those who
are not Muslim kuffar and if they die in that state they will abide in the
hell-fire forever. I don't care what anyone else says."


Maybe the Presbyterians are getting the message. It seems like some of the Church hierchy is upset at the new, up close and personal relationship being developed with the likes of Hizbollah.

Leaders of the Louisville-based Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) are distancing themselves from a church-funded delegation's visit to the Hezbollah organization in Lebanon, calling it "misguided, at best."

...t
hey denounced the comments of one member of the delegation, who
told Arab television that "relations and conversations with Islamic leaders are a lot easier than dealings and dialogue with Jewish leaders."


Theres so much more and so little time.

Here's an Arab take on the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, as presented in an Arab television drama. Of course, it's America's fault.

As 'strange' as that is, the TV release was cancelled. It seems some people thought the show was insulting to the Taliban.

I guess you just can't please everyone.

That's it folks, I'm off, into the wild blue yonder.
