Jerry Falwell recently popped off about Islam. His comments about Mohammed were not complimentary. His point apparently was that the connection between Islam and terrorism was not mere coincidence.
The statements provoked outrage - and at least one riot. In India, Muslims upset by Falwell's verbiage took to the streets. Nine died in the melee. Iran responded on cue. Leaders there issued a fatwa calling for Falwell's death. A religious adviser to Ayatollah Khamenei said, "The death of [Falwell] is a religious duty."
Here's the equation: It's an insult to equate Islam with violence and terror. Individuals who make such comparisons deserve to die.
Regarding the death threat, National Review wryly says: "What an odd way of objecting to the assertion that Islam is violent: to go out and kill."
Washington, D.C. -- Yesterday, veteran Democratic Senator Robert Byrd continued the Democratic attack on what Democrats insist is systemic racism in the Republican Party. Senator Byrd, returning from his weekly KKK meeting, charged that President Bush's popular pet, Barnie, slandered American Muslims when Barnie playfully dropped his toy pork chop on the foot of a visiting Saudi dignitary. ...
My name is Shinaz Nasreen Damaj Hijaj. I am a paraplegic. I am a lesbian. But foremost, I am a Palestinian suicide bomber.
When I was growing up, people told me that I could not do things the other children could do. When my friends were out throwing large rocks at the Israeli soldiers, trying to get them to shoot so that the Western reporters could take pictures, I was told to stay at home. I was told I could not join in the fun because I had no legs. I was only allowed to wheel myself out once the shooting started so that I might get in one of the pictures. Rest at:

Even now that Trent Lott has resigned and Bill Frist is the new Senate Majority Leader, the Democrats drill away,like maniacal dentists, spinning and whining endlessly:"... Republicans are disingenuous with their claims to be "the original party of Lincoln.""
Why? According to some, even though the Republican Party out-supported and out-voted the Democrats on the 1964 Civil rights act, some Republican leaders went to the South and picked up disaffected states-rights-white-southerners to help their national campaigns.
How convenient to ignore that then Gov. Reagan had already been touting "States Rights" in Western states to stave off Federal land-grabs; how convenient to ignore the fact that the NAACP had to sue then Gov. Bill Clinton in the late 1980s for refusing to enforce the Voting Rights Act in Arkansas.
You can almost hear how Clinton's gears were grinding; "hey, let ME pander to those disaffected states-rights-white-southerners, otherwise the white vote might stay home or vote third party! And hey, whaddayaknow, Black Americans will vote Democratic even though it was mostly Democrats WHO VOTED AGAINST the Civil rights act!"
Sound familiar? Just like the majority of naive American Jews who still vote Democratic, even though we now know that Roosevelt refused to bomb the train tracks leading to the camps, and even though the majority of today's Democratic party is so "palistinianized" they would vote to dismantle Israel if they thought they could get some more of that Arab money that went to Cynthia ("the Jews did me in") Mckinney.
So who is really being disingenuous? Republicans, or Democrats? I mean, I mean, I mean, Bill Clinton, he said just the other day that Republicans are racists.
And Bill Clinton should know.
IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE...
Bill Clinton, America's first "black" President (actually "beige," according to Sharpton), honored J. William Fulbright with much more effusive praise than Lott ever showered on Strom Thurmond.
So what? Who's J. William Fulbright and why should we care?
Here's a very brief history lesson: Democratic Senator J. William Fulbright was a complete and committed segregationist who signed the Southern Manifesto, declaring his COMPLETE AND TOTAL opposition to Brown v. Board of Education, the U.S. Supreme Courts' landmark school desegregation decision.
In other words, Clinton gave the Medal of Freedom to and put up a statue honoring a man who preferred that Black children didn't get an education!
Oh, but that was then, and this is now.
IF YOU CAN READ THIS MESSAGE,
THEN YOU SHOULD BE DEMANDING
THAT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY
REPUDIATE BILL CLINTON!
THEN YOU SHOULD BE DEMANDING
THAT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY
REPUDIATE BILL CLINTON!
And who is going to help the Black community now? Republicans who are in alignment with the majority of religious African-Americans on faith-based social services and school choice, or Democrats, who trample on religion, and who never saw a "public" school that was failing inner-city kids that they didn't want to keep wasting money on (but certainly wouldn't send their kids to... Does Sharpton even send his kids to public school? We know that Bill and Hillary certainly didn't send Chelsea to public school... )
Who loves ya, baby? Republicans who stand for free-enterprise, cutting taxes on ALL small businesses so that they can employ more African Americans, and so that African Americans can CREATE more businesses AND keep their profits in their families when they pass on, or Democrats, who want to keep multi-generations hooked on the welfare teat.
Race-baiting Democrats like Jackson and Sharpton and (and faux-black pols like Pelosi and Daschle and Clinton) are obviously what Booker T. Washington had in mind in 1911 when he wrote:
"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well."
Lott may have been a moron in front of a microphone, and he even may have been a closet racist decades ago. You want to cut him open after the lynching and look inside his heart?
Oh my, did I use the "L" word insensitively?
When the Black community and the Democratic party repudiates Al Sharpton for inciting arson and murder by screaming "Diamond Merchants " and "White Interlopers," when the Black community and the Democratic party repudiates Jesse "Lover boy" Jackson for "Hymietown" and spitting in white folks food, when the Black community and the Democratic party repudiates Robert Byrd for being in the KKK, and when the Black community and the Democratic party repudiates Clinton for honoring Fulbright the segregationist, when that happens, I'll do a mea culpa on the "L" word.
Needless to say the first (and subsequent) Ramabombadan dinners were, ahem, fodder for humor.

Dear Fellow Passenger and/or Flight Attendant:
I AM AN ORTHODOX JEW (I am not Muslim nor Amish).
IF MY LIPS ARE MOVING BUT I AM NOT TALKING TO YOU, I AM PROBABLY PRAYING.
JEWS OFTEN PRAY DURING TAKE-OFFS AND LANDINGS, SOMETIMES DURING THE FLIGHT, AND WE MAKE BLESSINGS BEFORE AND AFTER WE EAT (EVEN ON AIRLINE FOOD).
(PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO PRAY OVER YOUR NON-KOSHER IN-FLIGHT MEAL; THIS WILL NOT MAKE YOUR MEAL KOSHER, NOR IMPROVE IT'S FLAVOR.)
IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN AN ORTHODOX JEW BEFORE, PLEASE BE ASSURED I AM NOT PRAYING TO "ALLAH."
I ALSO WILL BE ONE OF THE FIRST MEN OUT OF MY SEAT TO TACKLE ANYONE HEADED TOWARDS THE COCKPIT DOOR. (I KNOW JEW-DO AND I HAVE A BLACK HAT IN JEW-JITSU).
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

Viewer blasts news: literally.
The shrieks of sheiks and their apologists blared from his television; the Crescent News Network's talking heads were bobbing up and down, as their guests ranted against the Big and Little Satans.
Someone in America finally snapped.
An American Jew, Peter Pupik, was arrested Sunday evening for shooting out his TV after the second day of Sukkot, an esoteric Jewish commemoration similar to The Feast of Tabernacles (both holidays are celebrated by Jewish and Christian fundamentalists). He was later released on $50,000 bond.
Your humble reporter had an exclusive interview with Mr. Pupik.
"I went to change the channel but every single one of them had some moron shouting "Islam means peace." I just couldn't believe it. Two weeks ago Sean Hannity had Pat Robertson on-air revealing that Islam is a religion of death; bingo, one week later, The Council on American-Islamic Relations published Fox News Chief Roger Ailes' email address, and we're back to "Allah is your friend.""
I asked Mr. Pupik if he was concerned for his children.
"Of course I am," he replied. "My first response was shock, and terrible sadness; I didn't want my kids to come into the living room to see and hear this; they were getting confused: over and over they see pictures of the planes attacking the WTC and the Pentagon, and then all they keep hearing is "Islam means peace, Islam means peace."
"I did it for the children; for my children's sake, the only solution was to take my shotgun and shoot the TV, " Pupik confessed.
Television viewing for the Pupik household normally would have begun Sunday evening after their holiday, and should have lasted until Friday afternoon: "Now my children won't have to pray to the square headed idol" Pupik moaned.
Police Public Affairs Officer Ronnie Schmuggegi dismissed Pupik's explanation: "Everyone knows that left wing journalists control the news, and viewers who object can easily be replaced with illegal aliens getting amnesty from the Democrats and the Republicans. What makes Pupik think that he's so special?"
National new programs are often sponsored by Arab oil money, as well as from the promotional sales of KY Jelly on popular sitcoms. Indeed, the public's response has been the focus of recent attention by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Anti-Defamation League. We could get no direct comment before going to press, but informed sources for the ACLU and the ADL both voiced concern, hinting that publicizing the news of Pupik's act could be construed "as an endorsement of anti-Muslim, or or worse, overly patriotic sentiments."

Miss Mannerstein, infamous for ripping CNN's Andrea Koppel et al in last spring's "4th Estate or 5th Column" The New Etiquette" is back advising a reader on the finer points of taking and making over the Arab world.
First we occupy, then de-jihad-ify.
Then to Europe we say, "Hi!:
You need oil? From US,
at $50 a barrel, you will buy!"
Miss Mannerstein returns, with answers on Iraq, dejihadification and oil.
Dear Miss Mannerstein,
I recently read a transcript of a conversation between Dr. Daniel Pipes and Pat Buchanan on the pending war with Iraq, and the whole notion of "democratizing" the Arab world. Mr. Buchanan commented that we have to be careful of what we wish for, i.e., that by opening up the Arabs to more "democratic" governments, we would be handing over those countries to those who would be even more antagonistic to the U.S., and to Israel and the West in general.
Dr. Pipes had an intriguing response:
"It's in our interests that they modernize and it's in our interests to help them modernize and I think we know how. We are very modern and we can help them. Look, we've done that elsewhere. Look, for example, at Japan. We defeated the Japanese and then we guided them towards a democracy. We did the same with Germany. We should be doing the same thing with Iraq."
Could you explain exactly what Dr. Pipes was alluding to?
Signed, Darned if we do, etc.
Though I can't speak for the noted Mideast expert Dr. Pipes, let me try and explain what he may have been referring to (and my, how times have changed... Daniel Pipes chatting with Pat Buchanan...):
Skipping the hemming and hawing, we must drop the idea of creating an "instant democracy" in Iraq or anywhere else in the Arab world. Dr. Pipes is reminding us is that America had "success" with Japan and Germany because our parents beat the snot out of them, and we then occupied both countries until we had weeded out most if not all of the hard-core German and Japanese followers of Hitler and Tojo.
In other words, we rounded up and jailed or hung all the nut-jobs. We disarmed them completely, we took over responsibility for their defense, their political reorganization, their schools and much of their media. We did this for decades with Germany and for many years with Japan.
During the occupation, all Germans and Japanese who wanted to run for office or work for their respective local governments were investigated and put through interrogation, and where necessary, through "denazification." (And no, it wasn't perfect; we took some perfectly dangerous Nazis and used them for our own purposes to combat Communism, and to develop our nascent missile and space capabilities; was it morally imperfect? Possibly. Did it pay off in the end? Of course.)
If we want to avoid another 9/11 attack (and G-d forbid a worse conflagration) we must commit ourselves to a similar strategy for much of the Arab region. When you hear Congress and the media (and the bleeding-heart hypocrites in Europe and here at home with billion-dollar investments in Iraq) whining and stalling about "going into Baghdad without a well thought-out plan," this should be your response:
America must attack, defeat and occupy Iraq (and any other nation that builds weapons of mass destruction and/or sponsors terrorism) and we must stay there as we did in Germany and Japan; we must remain in Iraq until their current leaders are either dead or locked away, until the generations that have been brainwashed to hijack freedom of expression and political choice have all been dejihadified, until all those who would turn their people and their economies against us are completely out of the picture, and until they are forever unable to wage war and sponsor terrorism against us and our true allies. We owe it to ourselves, to our children, and even though they dont deserve it, to the rest of the so-called free-world.
This is the only honest and non-delusional answer about democratizing the Arab Mideast. Pull your eyebrows back down, and be thankful we are getting in early with only a few thousand dead from 9/11, instead of the tens of millions it took to conclude WW2.
I know, I can hear some of you now:
"But Miss Mannerstein, something like that could take years, decades! How are we going to afford all that?"
If it takes fifty years, so be it; we can pay for it by selling Arab oil to Europe. (You think we elected two oil men to make chopped liver?)
Je suis enchante, indeed, many are enchanted
with ripping off your long white robe,
while ignoring the temptation to remind you
of 'Aurence, and of his fascination with your fathers.
Wipe the recounted gore from our Seder table with your foul Faud robe;
There is a surfeit of Jew blood for your Nouvelle Cuisine, for your tasteful dish
of smoked Torah bathed in Vichy water.
When French whores meet Saudi petroterrs,
the only questions are
who waves the brilliant white bed sheets in surrender,
and who infects whom?
