A European Dragnet

A European Dragnet captures new clues to bin Laden's network. They believe that for the sake of Jihad, or holy war, they can jettison the usual practices of devout Muslims. They call on adherents instead to burrow into the cultures they seek to eradicate. Let's have a block party.

So while they prescribe a perversion of Islam so restrictive it's verily sacrilegious, they subscribe to a perversion that's so, well, un-Islamic that they can munch on Seven Eleven Spicy Big Bites and whoremonger just to "blend in." Now that's having your cake.... What a bunch of assholes. How convenient not to follow your own precepts and excuse it as a "sacrifice." I'm sure eating pepperoni and pumping a strumpet hurts real bad.

lost among the hoo-haw of the "anti-arab" backlash and racial profiling rhetoric is the fact that anti-semitic and pro-OBL hate crimes are occurring at an alarming rate as well.

the enemy walks among us. have any of you heard of pro-terrorist rhetoric in your community?

From the article Dan0suporStar linked:

"Our huge concern is that people are being attacked because they look like people from the Middle East," he said. "Sikhs are being targeted incorrectly."

I'm sure he didn't mean that there exists a "correct target", but I always find it a bit odd when the news or authorities add "and he wasn't even a Muslim" to the end of a report on Hate Crimes, as if it's more rational to attack a Muslim Egyptian American working at 7-11 than a Christian one.
