Antisemites and the Danish Cartoons

Filed under: — Different River @ 8:51 pm

The antisemites are now claiming that the Danish “Mohammed” cartoons are the result of a “Jewish NeoCon conspiracy” involving Daniel Pipes. These are the same people who think the World Trade Center towers were brought down not by the airplane crashes we all saw on TV, but by an “Israeli-American laser beam weapon” or “massive underground explosions.” (I provide those links with some trepidation; I don’t want to give them any publicity, but I want people to know we’re not exaggerating the extent of their lunacy.)

It’s quite literally unbelievable, of course — but in retrospect, it’s surprising it took them this long.

Donald Sensing notes a historic day in naval aviation. The F-14 fighter has been retired after 32 years in service.

James Joyner has some more thoughts.

So is Osama for or against dying for the cause?

Donald Sensing catches Bin Ladin in a moment of utter hypocrisy:

“I have sworn to only live free. Even if I find bitter the taste of death, I don’t want to die humiliated or deceived,” bin Laden said, in the 11-minute, 26-second tape.

“[B]itter the taste of death”? You lying jackal, you’ve been telling your recuits how glorious death is and how exalted it is to die as a martyr for Islam! “Bitter?” What about the 72 virgins awaiting every shahid [suicide martyr] in paradise? (Oh, yeah, I forgot!)
