The New Brown ShirtsRead the whole thing, and the links if you have the stomach for it. I always come back to the powerful lines at the closing of Alain Renais's searing documentary on the camps, Night & Fog...as the camera pans across a now tranquil Auschwitz while the voiceover reads, "Who is on guard from these lonely towers to warn us of the coming of the new executioners?"
How ironic, really, how tragic, that Muslims, who want us to believe that Islam is the religion of peace, would behave in such a hateful and violent way!
Oh yes. And without shame, and with great pleasure, the protestors call Jews: pigs, apes, donkeys, vermin, and faggots. They hurl curses at their far more sedate opponents. They threaten to rape their opponent’s mothers and visit a slow and painful death upon their opponents’ wives and children. “Nuke Israel” screamed one young woman in hijab, over and over again in Ft. Lauderdale. “F–k you Jew” was also a favorite chant.
I guess that wearing hijab does not necessarily make a woman modest or kind.
By and large, the world media is watching Hamas’s back and presenting the case for terrorism, not for democracy or the rule of law. The potential menace of these mobs has flown far below the mainstream media’s radar as well.
