A Must Read

Friend of the Blogway, Always on Watch, has written a brilliant post that I hope everyone checks out. It's called Differing Definitions and clearly makes sense of why the Islamists can say one thing, and we naive Americans can think they mean something else. This is a very important post. Please go read it. Now.

AOW did a very good job of defining what Islam consider as 'innocents' and 'peace'. Thanks for linking to it.

Esther,
Thank you for announcing my article.

I worked hard on this particular piece. I had not planned to post for a while, but yesterday morning I couldn't let go of the thoughts rolling around in my mind--namely, that we who love the ideals of freedom are being scammed by tricky language. We're in a serious war here, and the enemy is trying to lull us into believing there is no war: say one thing but mean another.

Didn't Hitler do the same thing? The complacency of other nations allowed him to kill millions.

Yesterday's post will stay up for several days.

Glad you all are checking it out. :)

AOW -- you're so welcome. Great job!

AOW, these are some really important points you've made. The politicians in this country have to understand that we can't accept, as gospel, what's said in English to a an American audience. Yasser Arafat was very good at doing that and, unfortunately, the Israelis knew it, but they couldn't seem to make either the Americans or the Europeans understand the difference. For some unfathomable reason they chose to believe an incorrigible liar in much the same way they accept the declarations against terrorism put out by CAIR and some other American Muslim organizations.

"Didn't Hitler do the same thing? The complacency of other nations allowed him to kill millions."

Exactly.

complacency?

More like the complicity, I'd say, including the US who turned back shiploads of refugees fleeing Germany, and the Ukrainians who willingly joined Hitler's SS and the Vichy French who rounded up and shipped off thousands and thousands to the death camps and the Christian Poles who reported their Jewish neighbors and the Greeks and the Italians and the Arabs and the......

Need I go on? Complacent, the world was NOT.

That was a terrific post, AOW. Thanks.

Mark,
Yes, complicity as well. Complacency from the general public, who didn't want to look at something evil and/or something which didn't directly affect them, and complicity on the part of those in authority.

Rory,
Yasser Arafat is the perfect example of doubletalk. He played the United States and Europe for a sucker. His ilk live on, though Arafat himself is gone.

Wasn't there some kind of push to bury him in Israel? That's not going to happen, is it?

 
At 6:09 PM, Blogger Rory said...

AOW,
That's true. There was an effort on the part of the Palestinians to have him buried in Jerusalem, but the Israelis told them under no uncertain terms what they thought of that idea, so he's buried at his compound in Ramallah. Frankly, even that's too good for him. I think they should have ground him up and used him as fertilizer. At least that way he would have finally served some useful purpose.

Wow, great stuff happenin' over here. I got a short-term freelance job that started today and it's totally cutting into my blogging fun.

Rory, your comment on Arafat finally being of use had me LOL.

Great comments all...

Rory - Thanks. I have been wondering where Arafat is buried. So I can go piss on his grave the next time I'm in the Middle east.

But I'm not vindictive, really I'm not!

Mark,
My sentiments exactly. And, of course, I'm not vindictive either.
