How the "Moderate Egyptian" sees the Sharm El Sheik terror events

An Italian writer looks at the Egyptians who were the victims of the Sinai terror. They know who is behind the terror -- America and Israel.

"Do they hate terrorists?" The answer is "Yes, very much so," and they really do, - they close their fists and watch in rage and repeat to me that they deeply hope that Mr. Mubarak will catch them all, will put them in prison, will kill them. Are they ready to fight them? Yes, at every level, with their hands, if requested, and with demonstrations that actually, while I'm in Sharm, suddenly appear in the hot streets and just in front of the cameras of the international press: "Down with terrorism," "We are against terrorism"...

But then, if it's so, why can the great moderate Muslim world not really fight their own enemy? They themselves give me the answers: "Bin Laden? The Muslim Brotherhood? Certainly the terrorist attacks are not their work, no! This is a lie. A Muslim could never do this. And if they say they do it in the name of Islam, they are not Islamic; or, most likely, this shows, like the television says, that someone uses the name of Islam just to hide the real perpetrators."

The "Moderate" Muslim: Watch what they say about Israel

When trying to figure out when you've had a real sighting of the rare "Moderate Muslim", pay close attention to their talk on Israel and terrorism. VDH's Private Papers has a great piece on "the smoking gun that reveals the jihadist sentiments of double-talking “moderates.”

Inayat Bunglawla, another “moderate” spokesman for the Muslim Council of Britain, has been all over CNN since the bombings in London. In a recent BBC4 interview, this is how he “condemned” homicide bombings: “Let me make clear then, once and for all, we condemn the killing of all innocent people wherever they are, human lives everywhere are of equal value, whether they are British, American, Iraqi, or Palestinian. Jewish lives are not worth more than Palestinian lives, all are worth equal, and it's been quite nauseating over the past week to see how Israel and its highly-placed supporters in the media have been trying to make political capital out of last week's atrocities against Londoners. It is shameful on them and shameful upon those who are trying to help Israel improving its PR image after the brutalities it commits against the Palestinian people.”

Here is a classic example of so-called “moderate” double-talk. Notice how Jews are left out of the list of “human lives” that have “equal value.” Notice how the statement “Jewish lives are not worth more than Palestinian lives” is not followed by the logical corollary, “Palestinian lives are not worth more than Jewish lives.” And finally, notice the usual hysterical smokescreen of alleged Israeli “brutalities” to shift the focus away from Muslim murder of innocents by concentrating on its supposed causes.

In fact, the obsession with the Palestinians is the smoking gun that reveals the jihadist sentiments of double-talking “moderates.” Consider how many British Muslims, supposedly opposed to homicide bombings, praised Hamas founder Sheikh Yassim, who engineered the murder of over 500 Israelis in furtherance of his organization's long-term goal to destroy Israel. After the Israeli Defense Forces killed him, a memorial service was held in London, an event attended by “moderates” like Muslim Council Secretary General Sir Iqbal Sacranie, who called Yassim a “renowned Islamic scholar,” an estimation shared by Inayat Bunglawla. Think about the implications: respected, Westernized “moderate” Muslims praise a terrorist murderer as an “Islamic scholar,” and we are supposed to believe that “fanatics” have “hijacked” and “distorted” Islam?

Orwell, the Left, Jihad, and the London Bombings

A conversation with Orwell about the bombings of 7/7 in London.

An illusion can become a half-truth, a mask can alter the expression of a face. The familiar arguments to the effect that democracy is ‘just the same as’ or ‘just as bad as’ totalitarianism never take account of this fact. All such arguments boil down to saying that half a loaf is the same as no bread. (ibid, sect. 2)

The Myth of the Palestinian Eyewitness

How can Palestinian eyewitnesses all be wrong? Maybe because the good people behind the Palestinian cause regularly lie to journalists, calling terrorists "innocent civilians" (sometimes they are "boys playing soccer), making up "massacre" claims, and blaming Israeli "settlers" for just about everything. Al Reuters then picks up the claim and sometimes even drops the perfunctory "Palestianian witnesses say." See Al Dura, Muhamed

Time Travel: Even More Time to Make The Donuts!

Israeli scientists investigate a donut theory of time travel. No time travel blog entry can be finished without pointing to the case of John Titor who claimed to be a time traveler who decided to spill all his secrets on internet discussion forums.

Is Al Queda HQ'd in Iran Now?

Some disturbing info on Al Queda top management "arrested" in Iran. As usual, the Islamofascist terror war against the US is supported by Arab governments which deny such support (Saudi Arabia, anyone?)

Many experts believe the IRGC operates beyond the control of elected politicians in Tehran and answers only to the hard core of the unelected clerical elite. As a top French law enforcement official told the "Los Angeles Times": "Iranians play a double game. It is a classic Iranian style of ambiguity, deception, manipulation. Everything they can do to trouble the Americans, without going too far, they do it. They have arrested important Al-Qaeda people, but they have permitted other important Al-Qaeda people to operate."

See also the razor-sharp Dan Darling and the good folks over at MSNBC. Iran has a history of direct state support for terrorism -- now its alliance with Al Queda is becoming more obvious.
