Very amusing

Reader comment on item: Not Calling Islamism the Enemy

Submitted by Richard Beecher (United States), Apr 17, 2006 at 16:30

Didn't a senior minister of France state in 2002 how Islam "liberated" Jerusalem from the Crusaders? Now, how much more politically correct can you get? I can not wait to see how the EU politicians roll over this time. Here are a few suggested lexicon revisions:
1. Rather than "suicide bombers" they can call them "muslim plastic surgeons."
2. Instead of talking about restrictive clothing for women (i.e. burkhas) they really mean a full employment act for out-of-work tent makers.
3. Instead of abrogating women's rights they are simplifiying their choices.
4. Invading infidel lands can really be construed as giving everyone the above mentioned benefits of Islamic culture as well as honor murders, female circumcision, beheading of infidels, tyranny and fatwas inciting murder of so-called apostates. Oh, and they get to keep all the loot from the conquered lands too.

Seriously, I wonder how big a disconnect there is between these West European politicians and their (non-Muslim) population; that population being directly affected by the negative activities of the fanatical and criminal element of their Muslim co-citizens. Watchout when (not if) the critical mass occur between the two different cultures. Unlike a nuclear explosion, this chain reaction will quickly get out of control.
