in response to reader comment: Reality

And it does not do the world any good whatsoever to pretend that somehow Islam can be "reformed." At the heart of Islam (as it's currently practiced) is a genocidal impulse. Repeating slogans, such as "Islam means peace" (an outright lie) or that two versions of Islam exist (one moderate, the other "radical) are delusional sentiments. People who repeat such things are (imo) part of the problem. They lull us into complacency.

Ditto for all those "analysts" who claimed that Fatah would be the ruling party -- what does Shimon Peres (out there in La La Land) have to say? Shouldn't people be outraged that they have been lied to -- duped into believing, once again, that Arabs are just interested in run-of-the-mill politics of the "Fatah" variety, and not jihadist violence? Yet, rather than outrage, what we hear yet again are excuses. GW Bush is making excuses, Condi is making excuses (and, No Condi, you imbecile, Pals are not expressing their "aspirations for peace" when they cast their vote for terrorists organizations) -- everyone is making excuses for the jihadists.

It is time for Bush and the rest of the world to wake up!
