Fat Steve's Blatherings

Sunday, July 24, 2005


      Over at Protein Wisdom, Jeff Goldstein puts the boot in to the hysterics who are constantly in a lather about the latest U.S./British/Western ‘crime’ that they have imagined.  (Hat tip: Instapundit)

      Quoting from the London Times:
      While his family in Leeds had no idea about his suicide mission, Tanweer confessed to his cousin his ambition to become a “holy warrior.”  At his father’s home village 30 miles from Faisalabad, Mohammad Saleem described yesterday how Tanweer, 22, hero-worshipped Osama bin Laden.

      Mr Saleem supported his cousin’s bombing at Aldgate station which killed seven people, saying: ““Whatever he has done, if he has done it, then he has done right.”  He recalled how Tanweer argued with family and friends about the need for violent retaliation over US abuse of Muslim prisoners in Guantanamo Bay.

      Tanweer was no stranger to the village of Chak No 477, where his grandfather and several cousins live.  During his last trip, the college dropout was visited by another of the bombers, Mohammad Sidique Khan.  They are said to have met a known al-Qaeda activist who has since been jailed for bombing a church.  “Whenever he would listen about sufferings of Muslims he would become very emotional and sentimental,” Mr Saleem said.  “He was a good Muslim . . . he also wished to take part in jihad and lay down his life.

      “He knew that excesses are being done to Muslims.  Incidents like desecration of the Koran have always been in his mind.”

      Goldstein comments:
      Perhaps now that their irresponsible rhetoric has resulted in actual loss of life, Teddy, Carl, Dick, Howard, et al—along with their mouthpieces in the mainstream press who, until recently, have been too busy questioning every Bush administration motive to investigate Gitmo on their own, relying instead on misleading press releases from Amnesty International—will tone down the rhetoric and try to substantiate their accusations before launching them so frequently, forcefully, and publicly—where, it turns out, Muslims, including westernized Muslims, are actually listening.  But I doubt it.

      The saddest part?  Nobody will hold these power-hungry hyperpartisans and their ulterior motives to account—because to do so would be to commit the cardinal sin of “questioning their patriotism.”

      Well, let me be the first to break that particular taboo: “THE LEFT LIED AND LONDONERS DIED!”

      Somebody should make a frickin’ t-shirt.

      Let me go further, and question their loyalty: ‘THE LEFT WANTS AL-QAEDA TO WIN!”

      Traitorous swine.
