Those who killed the young and vulnerable Mary Sameh George, for hanging a cross in her car, are not criminals, but rather wretches who follow those who legalized for them murder, lynching, dismemberment, and the stripping bare of young Christian girls—without every saying “kill.”
[Islamic cleric] Yassir Burhami and his colleagues who announce their hate for Christians throughout satellite channels and in mosques—claiming that hatred of Christians is synonymous with love for God—they are the true killers who need to be tried and prosecuted. It’s not just a few “radical clerics”—a few “rotten apples”—that incite mobs to attack Christians, but rather the core texts of Islam itself.
Somali Muslims in Minnesota are agitating on behalf of savage jihadists in Kenya. For one, think of the brutal torture and murder of mall shoppers in the Westgate mall jihad. Kenya is under bloody siege by jihad militias. And yet members of the Twin Cities’ Somali-American community gathered at the state Capitol after Friday prayer s to express “solidarity and demand justice for relatives in Kenya” waging jihad ….
Fort Hood is no different from Pearl Harbor: That’s to say, in both cases domestic military bases were attacked by agents of avowed enemies of the United States. Why should a soldier have to scrape by on 200 bucks a month because euphemizing a jihadist attack as “workplace violence” is more politically convenient for the government?
Last week we learned how well that worked out for Fort Hood. But for the victims of the first attack the designation of “workplace violence” was to have profound consequences. From Mariah Blake’s report:
“Since the attack, Lunsford, who also received help from Perot, has retired because of his injuries—he’s missing half his intestines, is blind in one eye, and has trouble walking (a side effect of the bullet lodged in his thigh). He also suffers from bouts of debilitating pain. “Sometimes, I’m immobile in bed for a month,” he says. “I can’t even go to the bathroom by myself. My wife literally has to wipe me.”
Dr. Beverley Chalmers of the University of Ottawa believes that Canadian doctors should not be permitted to perform any form of genital mutilation that is not clinically necessary.
Reinfibulation is “heartbreaking … there are no benefits whatsoever for it. On the contrary, it is associated with immediate risks, delayed risks, and long-term risks.” These risks include difficulties while urinating and menstruating and severe pain during sexual intercourse, as well as increased maternal and child mortality, Dr. Gamal Serour said.
And yet it’s happening in Canada.
As for Brandeis president Frederick Lawrence and the others who took this decision, nobody’s asking them to be as brave as Ayaan Hirsi Ali. They will never know what it’s like to have their associates murdered and to be forced into living under armed guard. They will never have to “share the risk” that Ms Hirsi Ali faces every day of her life. All that was required of President Lawrence & Co was that they not be total craven, jelly-spined squishes who fold like a cheap Bedouin tent at the first hint of pressure.
As SteynOnline readers well know, in the wake of Seal Team Six, America has also acquired a Bunny Team Six and a Deer Team Six. Now comes news from Nevada of Cattle Team Six. It’s a long-running story of rights to graze on “federal land” vs protection of the “desert tortoise”, but, like so many disputes with American bureaucrats these days, it ends with paramilitary commandos training their weapons on civilians.
There is a partnership today between Islam and our public officials that is determining who can speak on what subjects. A recent talk in Knoxville shows us how far the government is away from free speech.
