Bad seeds

World's crop of radical jihadists need to be plowed under

  • Follow Editorials

Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab, whose briefs are now at least as famous as Tom Cruise’s once were, figures he was just getting us back by stuffing his skivvies with explosives.

You know: bombing an airliner over Detroit on Christmas – what a great way to stick it to Christians! – to retaliate for all the Muslims that America is oppressing across the world.

Like in Libya.

Wait. That was another Muslim.

Uh, Syria.

OK, another Muslim.

Yemen? Nope.

Iraq! No – actually they hanged that guy. Checking on that ... yep, Muslim.

Hmmm. It seems Captain Underpants’ reasoning leaves something to be desired. That’s not a small matter, since he used that zigzag mental process to justify his plot to kill some 300 innocent people.

It’s amazing the corn maze that exists in some people’s minds.

Just to drive a plow through that thinking: If there’s tyranny being applied to Muslims in the world – and there is – it’s at the hands of other Muslims. Moreover, almost every act of terror that’s been perpetrated or drawn on a cocktail napkin in the past four decades has been cooked up by radical Muslims with corn mazes for brains.

This particular one – a sorry loser whose guilty plea to eight counts this week mercifully removed his vacant mug from the news – should get life without parole, as should every jihadist who follows his miserable ant trail.

But this madness will cease only when radical Muslims themselves, and the moderates in their midst, stop the insane hatred of other forms of life on this planet – and stop oppressing each other and devoting their misbegotten lives to killing others.

In short, it’s time the Muslim world destroyed the seed corn from which these crazed mazes sprout.

Please clarify your

Please clarify your penultimate paragraph.

Are you saying that moderate Muslims have "insane hatred of other forms of life on this planet- and (should) stop...killing others?"

Well, all I can say is that if my Muslim friends are crazed haters and killers, they've sure done a good job of hiding their behaviors from me. I have yet to see one visit hatred upon, or attempt to kill, any other Family Y members.

I think the "muslims" are

I think the "muslims" are smarter than you think these days. The Arab spring has opened many eyes to the fact they have been manipulated by certain leaders, give them a little credit and time please.

Give them just enough time to kill as many "infidels" as possible?

How many Muslims have been

How many Muslims have been begging to bomb Iran lately (outside of the Saudi royal family)? Are the rest of us really any better about certain chronic behavior?

Brad, you finally got something right. The liberal/progressives in the US are in bed with the Arab Spring. The stupid protestors on wall don’t even know they are being used.

On April 14, 1972 Ten radical

On April 14, 1972 Ten radical muslims from a New York mosque called the local police and then ambushed them when they responded.

Since that date radical muslims have been killing Americans in one attack after another and have even documented, in writing, their declaration of war on the United States. A list of their activities can be found at http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/Pages/AmericanAttacks.htm

Everybody remembers 9//11/01 but many forget the enduring nature of this war and still others refuse to recognize that supporting the elimination of infidels is what makes a muslim a muslim.

Craig Spinks says he has muslim friends and that "I have yet to see one visit hatred upon, or attempt to kill, any other Family Y members" as if his anecdotal evidence should negate the mountains of evidence available to refute it.

I suggest he and others who would make the same observation familiarize themselves with the muslim term "Taqiyya." It means 'lying for Allah' and it encourages them to lie and otherwise obfuscate for the furtherance of Islam. Then there's the term "tu quoque” which provides a technique for accomplishing the deception.

Jon Lester asked "How many

Jon Lester asked "How many Muslims have been begging to bomb Iran lately (outside of the Saudi royal family)?"

More than you think.

And then he asked, "Are the rest of us really any better about certain chronic behavior?"

If the "certain chronic behavior" you're addressing is sawing peoples' heads off I'd have to say "yes, we are all better."
