Know Thy Enemy

The following is a random selection of articles from just the past few days. The coomon thread linking them together? They all highlight the barbaric practices of the 'religion of peace.'

Before any liberals out there get their panties all in a wad, let me say that I'm not tarring all Muslims with the same brush. I know and have worked with many non-extremist Muslims. And I'll grant you that extremists can be found in every religion. But I do find it intriguing/curious/troublesome (pick your adjective) that there are so many examples of ignorant, savage, and brutal behavior by hard-core Islamists, with little outcry or denunciation by other Muslims or the mainstream media.

I'd like to see the same tolerance extended to conservatives and the Tea Party...

First, on the medial front, we have this story from the New York Times.

Polio’s Return After Near Eradication Prompts a Global Health Warning
Alarmed by the spread of polio to several fragile countries, the World Health Organization declared a global health emergency on Monday for only the second time since regulations permitting it to do so were adopted in 2007.

Just two years ago — after a 25-year campaign that vaccinated billions of children — the paralyzing virus was near eradication; now health officials say that goal could evaporate if swift action is not taken.

Polio-stricken kids - thanks, Islamists.
Pakistan, Syria and Cameroon have recently allowed the virus to spread — to Afghanistan, Iraq and Equatorial Guinea, respectively — and should take extraordinary measures to stop it, the health organization said.
Of course, this being the NYT, the reason for the spread of the polio virus is buried near the end of the story.
Taliban factions have forbidden vaccinations ... and have murdered vaccine teams ... Islamic terrorist groups in Nigeria have killed vaccinators.

Can you say "stone age?"

Islamists are clearly winning the war on polio vaccinators. They're also faring well in their war on women, as the next two stories show.

'I will sell them,' Boko Haram leader says of kidnapped Nigerian girls
Fears for the fate of more than 200 Nigerian girls turned even more nightmarish Monday when the leader of the Islamist militant group that kidnapped them announced plans to sell them.

In recent years, Boko Haram has carried out dozens of attacks, killing thousands of people at schools, churches, police stations, government buildings and elsewhere. Targets include Christians, senior Islamic figures critical of Boko Haram and people the group believes are engaged in "un-Islamic" behavior...
Yeah, let's keep 'em barefoot and pregnant. That'll teach those uppity broads who want to get an education.

And if a gal wants to have a little fun, they know how to take care of that as well.

Widow is gang-raped as 'punishment' for having an affair with a married man in Indonesia - and now she will be caned in public under Sharia law
An Indonesian widow who was gang-raped by eight 'vigilantes' as punishment for having an affair with a married man, is now to suffer the further indignity of being caned in public.

Public punishment: The 25-year-old woman faces up to nine strokes of the cane
The rapists caught the couple together when they barged into her house in the northern Indonesian province of Banda Aceh and accused her of having 'improper sexual relations' with the 40-year-old man.

The 25-year-old woman's companion was tied up and beaten, while she was raped repeatedly. Then the two of them were doused with buckets of sewage.
Remember these stories the next time some nitwit democrat accuses the republicans of waging a war on women.

Finally, here's a chilling example of what happens when a religious movement is used to indoctrinate children.

Hamas tells kids to shoot all the Jews
Translated from a Hamas-run children's TV show broadcast on May 2:

Host (Rawan): "Tulin, why do you want to be a police officer? Like who?"
Girl (Tulin): "Like my uncle." ...
Child host: "OK, so what does a policeman do?"
Nahul (an adult in a giant bee costume): "He catches thieves, and people who make trouble."
Host: "And shoots Jews. Right?"
Girl: "Yes."
Host: "You want to be like him?"
[Girl nods]
Host: "Allah willing, when you grow up."
Girl: "So that I can shoot Jews."
[Nahul the bee claps his hands]
Host: "All the Jews? All of them?"
Girl: "Yes."
Host: "Good."

Islamist version of Mr. Rogers

So the next time you hear someone make apologies for those who use their religion as an excuse to behave like barbaric savages, keep this montage in mind.

Actions speak louder than words...
