Sure, Syed's the perfect choice

in response to reader comment: To Syed

Looking for backup from Syed? That, I'm sorry to say, makes me wonder how moderate you really are.

Syed has never seen or heard of a murder he didn't like (as long as it was done by Muslims). I asked him myself about the murder of Zahra Kazemi; he replied back that he heartily approves. Zahra Kazemi was repeatedly raped, then beaten and had her skull crushed (with an appropriately sized stone?) in an Iranian prison. Judging from his reply, had Syed been there, (maybe he was) he would have cheered them on. Myself, I remain relatively unimpressed with the courage displayed by murdering a handcuffed little old lady (one of the things about which Syed and I differ).

I asked him about the murders of Dariush and Parvaneh Forouhar, too. Another big thumbs up from Syed. They had been mildly critical of the Iranian government, (we call it simple freedom of speech where I live) so getting butchered in their home one evening, without the bother and inconvenience of an arrest, indictment or trial earned Syed's unequivocal approval. The fact that a bloody mess was left for their children to clean up in no way dampened Syed's enthusiasm.

Murder seems very convenient in Syed's little rulebook. He must be doing something right? I wonder what that is.

I would counsel moderation in choosing your friends, Mr. Moderate Muslim.
