A New Dialogue With Our Muslim Friends:

James Taranto in the WSJ has this item:

“Shepherds found the mutilated bodies on Monday of two German nurses and a South Korean teacher who were kidnapped while picnicking in an area of Yemen known as a hideout for al-Qaida,” the Associated Press reports from Sanaa, the Yemeni capital:

Experts said the killings bore the hallmarks not of local tribesmen but of jihadist militants who had returned home after fighting in conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere.

Can you count the ways in which this is a war crime? They took civilians prisoner, killed them apparently without a trial, and we’re guessing didn’t even let the Red Cross see them. All this after President Obama promised to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility!

It makes you wonder if al Qaeda even takes the Geneva Conventions seriously.

    Gasp! It’s as if they didn’t know that Obama had been elected. Do we know if these alleged criminals have access to a television or radio on which to hear Obama’s speeches? How can we let these poor, misguided souls know of the love and kindness that Obama offers them? What act of American imperialism, embodied by the foreign invaders, have they suffered to turn them from their religion of peace to behave so badly?

  2. Roy Ryder says:

    Sorry. I kind of threw up in my mouth a little bit after writing the above post.

    If we can find these alleged criminals, I’d like to see the horrified looks on their faces as a duly-appointed member of the Obama administration reads them their Miranda rights. Man, I’ll bet that would scare 3 shades of crap right out of them.

    Them damned Jews. It’s their fault, of course.

    Twelve years ago, in November 1997, 50 Swiss tourists rose early to visit the Valley of the Kings across the Nile from Luxor in Egypt. Suddenly from the hills came a group of Islamists. They shot, disemboweled, and decapitated the tourists.

    It was just one of the many forerunners of 9/11 in 2001 in New York, 7/7 in 2005 in London, Madrid in 2004, and Mumbai and on and on.

    When anti-Mohammed cartoons can ‘provoke’ riots, embassy burnings and murder, but the routine publication of anti-Jewish cartoons in Middle Eastern newspapers elicits not an ounce of shame or anger among the same people, what is to be done?

    When the habitual discrimination against and often imprisonment of non-Muslims in Muslim countries evokes merely denial or yawns on the part of Muslims and western leftists and liberals, why the denial?

    Respect is a two way street, and it has for too long suited too many of the Democratic constituency to ignore or put a gloss on what is happening, and has been happening for many centuries, up the other end of the street.

    Liberals are brain-dead if not in league with the Islamists.
