British holidaymakers staged an unprecedented mutiny - refusing to allow their flight to take off until two men they feared were terrorists were forcibly removed.The main stream reaction is predictable. Patrick Mercer, the Tory Homeland Security spokesman:
"For those unfortunate two men to be victimised because of the colour of their skin is just nonsense."First thought that spring to mind: They weren't 'victimized' for their skin color. Second thought, specifically aimed at politicians and functionaries refusing to act according to fact: You reap what you sow.
The Hollywood big names that undersigned a statement against terrorist violence have come under threat of a left wing boycott and letter campaign. Gateway Pundit has taken it upon himself to organize the counter-boycott-campaign.
In the mean time Allah Pundit takes stock of the post-cease-fire situation in the ME. It isn't all that good. Blue Crab Boulevard highlights the role of the UN and Kofi Annan in particular in the cease fire. Also not that good, really. And the Lebanese brass seems to have ordered the army to 'stand with Hezbollah'. It may be quiet in Lebanon right now, but 1) it's NOT peace and 2) it's not going to last all that long.
If you are still wondering where all that hate towards the West comes from, take a gander at these video excerpts taken from Arab MSM. 'Teach your children well', the poet wrote. To which the poet answered: 'We need help, I reckon'.
And lastly, for those that can read Dutch: Trouw published last Saturday a bravely outspoken article from the pen of Anne-Marie Delcambre, one of a growing number of French anti-dhimmis: Gematigde Islam bestaat niet (Moderate islam does not exist). Small (translated) excerpt:
There isn't a fundamental difference between islam and islamism, only a gradual one. Islamism is present within islam like the chick is present in the egg. There is no good or bad islam, just as there isn't a moderate islam. There are however moderate muslims: Those that ignore part of their religion.
