THE BESLAN SAVAGERY
New York Post ^ | 9/04/04

Posted on 09/03/2004 11:32:30 PM PDT by kattracks

[snip]

How is it possible that human beings can use the lives of children, hundreds of them, as tools to achieve their own personal political aims?

The truth is, the perpetrators of the school siege were not human. They were beasts — savage, bloodthirsty animals. For no human being, no matter how legitimately aggrieved, could so savagely open fire on innocent, helpless kids.

It is beyond cowardice.

Beyond depravity.

By the same token, how is it possible that any nation that considers itself civilized can still ignore — even excuse — the use of terror as a political weapon?

And yet, some do.

Iran, Syria, North Korea, the Palestinian Authority — these are all regimes that employ or endorse terror, while other nations, notably in Europe, turn a blind eye.

Sure, world leaders yesterday brimmed with shock and outrage at the killers and sympathy for Russia.

"There are no reasons imaginable that could justify taking children, toddlers, babies and their mothers hostage," German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer said. France, through its foreign ministry, called on "everyone to mobilize in the fight against terrorism."

Yet where were France and Germany when America and dozens of other nations sought to stop Saddam Hussein's carnage in Iraq? Indeed, where exactly do they stand now in the War on Terror?

Make no mistake: America saw its share of savagery and bloodshed three years ago next week in Washington, Pennsylvania and downtown Manhattan.

The Belsan school siege is "another grim reminder of the length to which terrorists will go to threaten this civilized world," President Bush said yesterday.

Indeed, today there is no reason to think terrorists, whatever their stripe, wouldn't resort to the same kind of barbarism here if given half a chance.

How is it that we allow the "peace" and "justice" A.N.S.W.E.R. monkeys to march in our streets for them?

Just as Mein Kampf played a part in generating the Nazi Holocaust, the Islamic writings that foment discrimination against non-Muslims lead to the inhuman savagery we are seeing in Russia and other part of the world today. It would be doing Muslims a great favor to forever remove those writings from their religion.

Notice the above article does not mention at all, not in one sentence, that the perpetrators were Muslims, following the religion of Islam, whose aim, it would appear, is to convert or kill non-believers the world over.

That's not the truth and that's the problem. They're human, not a lot different from any of us.

They are beasts. Human in appearance only, soulless. This is why killing them should cause no tears shed by our side. Killing Islamikazis is in this man's view like killing deranged rabid dogs. There is no reasoning with them, they are dangerous, and they will spread their disease if unchecked. Kudos to The Post for telling it like it is.

They've set some ugly dynamics in motion which may end with the ugly scenario of wholesale extermination of Chechens.

When you set about to murder children, don't be surprised when your's are murdered and all traces of your existence are buried under piles of salted rubble....

Huh?

The French have made their cowardly position perfectly clear, and should probably just keep their f*cking mouths shut on anything related to terrorism at this point.

I truly hope it doesn't happen, but chances are these assholes will soon discover that they are not immune to the islamic terrorist threat.

I wonder what France would do if a school was overrun with islamic terrorists. Call the UN for help?

It is time to destroy all Muslims who actually follow this truly wicked way of nihilism dressed in rags as a "Religion". If you actually follow this so-called religion, there is no moderation from the commandments of Jihad and perpetual death and oppression. The entire thing is a historical sham, perpetrated by a more-than-likely con artist and child rapist.. aka Muhammed Any "moderate Muslims" are not even real Muslims, as the entire religion is without any reformational points in it. Read "Why I Am Not A Muslim" by Ibn Warraq, and you will understand. The Islamic way of death must be crushed under the Occidential boot heel, just as National Socialism was. F#$% 'em and feed 'em Pork!

The term 'human' means like people, and no people do what these terrorists have done, right?

They are not like people, they are unlike people. They are unlike human beings, as a rabid dog is unlike even a sick dog.

This is an insult to animals who do not stoop so low as to kill (and commit suicide) with deranged and evil fanaticism.

As a graphic designer I've been involved with producing projects on many different topics/subjects, but the Beslan tragedy is the one that has affected me the deepest.

I designed a photographic composition of this tragedy into what I call my Scroll Roll format. This link http://beslan.knows.it will show it to you. It is 2.5 MB in weight, so please be patient. Pass it on to your friends and family. The photos are needed to be seen, kept and remembered.

It has been said by many to be very moving. I hope you will take the time to view it.
