Skip to comments.The Arab Mind (believe in this insane concept of martyrdom and violence)

Well, it did not take long for the case of the two MIAs to end: They were brutally tortured and then apparently beheaded by the new head of al-Qaida in Iraq.
Perhaps this is their (demented) view of payback for our killing al-Zarqawi two weeks ago. Whatever it is, it further illustrates the brutality of the militant Muslim enemy that we face across the world. And it needs to be made clear that while most Muslims do not behave this way - indeed the overwhelming majority do not - that majority for whatever reason also does not condemn it.
However, the Iraqi government - elected thanks to the courage and sacrifice of our soldiers and taxpayers - seems incapable or unwilling to crack down on these militants.
In fact, many of these murderers are actually members of the Iraqi Army by day, and then at night maraud as Muslim militia members sometimes even killing their own fellow Army troops!
Today's abduction and murder of one of Saddam's lawyers is a case in point: He was abducted from his house by Iraqis wearing police uniforms - and then hours later he was found shot to death and dumped on the street in the Shi'a part of Baghdad.
This is a daily occurrence in Iraq. These militants play both sides of the game - and can't be trusted.
Now, as to our ultimate game plan in Iraq:

I am really, really tired hearing this from the clueless... including my president, in view of the fact that this is as true now as it was on Sept 10, 2001... :
that majority for whatever reason also does not condemn it.
And certainly never show any inclination whatsoever to root out an kill the murderers among them. I can only conclude that they are quite satisfied with what is happening.
So Spare Me!
Why are people that believe everything that happens is the will of God, expected to condemn something that happens?
It should be the Muslim mind. Christian Arabs denounce evil and violence unlike Arab or other ethnic Muslims.
When will the "moderate" followers of Mad Moe report the first extremist? Approaching 5 years and still waiting for the Islamo victim class to get off their butts and stand up for America.
Funny how death and destruction seems to happen wherever Muslims gather...
Sadly, I have come to the belief that the only good muslim is a dead muslim.
Because God expects us to condemn evil and take action against it.
Did you read this article ?, I was beaten to the post, man it's worth reading a few times.
Geneva and Savagery
Al Qaedas reminder to the Supreme Court.
So, al Qaeda has done what al Qaeda does. It tortured and murdered our two soldiers. Pfc. Kristian Menchaca and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker never had a chance once they fell into the jihadists savage hands.
Meanwhile, some time in the next few days, the Supreme Court will decide the most important case of its term, Hamdan v. Rumsfeld. Salim Ahmed Hamdan, the personal driver and confidant of Osama bin Laden, claims his rights would be infringed if he is subjected to a military commission of the type President Bush authorized in late 2001 the type that has from a time out of memory been imposed on those who violate the laws of war. Hamdan demands, instead, a court martial, with all the elevated protections afforded to our own forces by our own military if not a full-blown civilian trial, before a federal judge, with all the protections afforded by our Constitution to American citizens accused of crimes.
Of course, a Yemeni national captured in Afghanistan whose only connection to the United States is to wage war against her has no rights under our Constitution. The entitlements Hamdan insists he rates can only come from international law: specifically, the Third Geneva Convention of 1949, relative to the treatment of prisoners of war.
Except theres a problem actually several problems. Al Qaeda, being an atrocious international terrorist network rather than a nation, is not a high contracting party to the Convention. It has no general or presumed claim on the treatys protections.
This does not necessarily mean it could never claim Geneva rights. But it does mean those rights must be earned. Genevas Golden Rule is earned reciprocity. Article 2 of the Convention makes it very clear: a non-party may earn the privileges and immunities of the treaty if it accepts and applies the provisions thereof.
So exactly how are Islamic terrorists faring on Genevas Do unto others scorecard?
So Spare Me!
I can't change a title....
And at the same time I'll note that I've heard some Palestinian Christians
sound like they were buddies with Arafat. I guess they thought he
was a better devil than the alternatives (Hamas, etc.)
Yes you are right...some put their "faith" in Marxist-Muslim meld as a way to undermine the Muslim tendency toward exterminating Christians.
But you know as well as I do, there are dhimmified Christians everywhere...more so among those who have been psychologically harmed by surviving as Christians for 1300 years.
Beats me, I guess people from different cultures, think and act differently about moral issues, while being invaded is a physical act requiring self-defense of one's property and life.
You'll have to ask God why He made everyone so different.
I can't change a title....
Of course not. I am simply ponting out the author's errors....and that is not the only one.
I, too am patiently waiting for a solitary voice anywhere in the Muslim World to condemn even a single act of violence or cruelty perpetrated in the name of Allah. If there are Muslim moderates appalled by acts of savagery committed in the name of their faith and God, let them speak.
Arabs have a mind???
An invalid assumption IMO.
They all read the same koran and follow the same pedophile "prophets" murderous ways. So while "most" muslims do not act this way, they all have the potential to. There is no need to add that PC BS line.
What about when a natural disaster such as an earthquake or tsunami hits an Islamic country? We never hear about that being Allah's will.
Right on. Muslims come in all shapes and colors, it is not a racial group. In days of old when writers told the truth, they were called "Muhammadan crusaders". Perhaps this writer should read: Inside the mind of the Muhammadan
Again........any religion that condones murder, torture, and butchery does not belong in America.
You must have read that somewhere.
We believe differently, but we probably agree that what and why God does things, is His business, and a mystery to us.
I am disgusted with this PC way this war is being waged.
I think anyone suspected of being a terrorist or of supporting terrorism (particularly inside the U.S.) should be given a quick military trial (before a tribunal) and shot as soon as they are of no further use.
This is a war like no other and we may be killing more of the enemy, but I doubt we have even begun to damage to the hideous ideology that fuels this war.
I bet all people have the potential to act differently, regardless of faith, ethnicity, culture, etc.

As Carole King sang thirty years ago, Its too late, Baby. She was referring to romance, but in this context it is too late for Team Bush to recapture the loyalty of the conservative GOP base. When your leader plummets to 29% - and is voted in the latest Quinnipiac poll as the worst president since WW II - there is no hope of enforcing party discipline.
The internal state of the Republican Party is one of total turmoil. They are floundering - and do not know what to do to right the ship of state.
So they are - again - trying to federalize a state issue: marriage. Since when did we conservatives believe the federal government should usurp states rights?
It is indeed too late. GW Bushs credibility is shot; his power eroded; his ability to influence events virtually gone.
His own arrogance and ignorance caused his downfall. He was too arrogant to listen when warned about the impending fiasco in Iraq; and he was too ignorant - and lazy - to study history to see what lay ahead in a war such as this.
A presidency deteriorating right before our eyes. Never - even under the inept Carter or the corrupt Nixon - have we seen a self-immolation quite like this. And we still have 2 ½ years to go!
No wonder more and more people are calling for a Third Party. Or, as has been written in this space for more than a year, an Independent Third Candidate who runs against both parties.
One of the founders of the Baath Party was a Greek Orthodox Syrian by the name of Michael Aflak. He either converted to Islam or embraced a Pan-Arab nationalism with Islam as its political basis.
looks interesting. thanks
I don't agree with the article, and it's never too late.
It's horrible. Michel Aflaq, another graduate of the Sorbonne - that French institution has turned a lot of men to the dark side hasn't it? - established the Baathist ideology.
When I have time I am going to disgest this material more fully. It is exactly as I have been saying for years--the Arabs only contribution to humanity was the taming of the camel, the invention of the camel saddle, and the fogara (an efficient type of well that they may not actually have discovered). Other than that, they have done nothing to benefit humanity as a whole. Even Islam itself was partly stolen from Christianity and Judaism. All of the so-called "Arab" discoveries are Byzantine, Egyptian, Persian, or have some other origin.
Well, the Japs kinda had the same mindset...
We got their attention...
I suspect that when Aflak attended the Sorbonne it was run by anti-colonial Leftists. After WWII the Left had a great deal of influence in France because it was prominent in the Resistance. The Right was discredited because many of them sided with the Vichyites.
May we not assume that they WOULD act this way under the same circumstances?
If you have time, here is an intersting interview with a Jewish fellow who discusses the Christian plight in the Holy Land.
Sorbonne: Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh...others? oh yes... Abimael Guzmán-shining path (peru).
Long past time to resurrect Vlad the Impaler.
To sum up: the Arab has borrowed everything from other nations, literature, art, science, and even his religious ideas. He has passed it all through the sieve of his own narrow mind, and being incapable of rising to high philosophic conceptions, he has distorted, mutilated and desiccated everything. This destructive influence explains the decadence of Musulman nations and their powerlessness to break away from barbarism
Thanks for the link!
"...all people have the potential to act differently, regardless of faith, ethnicity, culture, etc."
Pity the children...
The deadening influence of Islam is well demonstrated by the way in which the Musulman comports himself at different stages of his life. In his early childhood, when
the religion has not as yet impregnated his brain, he shows a very lively intelligence and remarkably open mind, accessible to ideas of every kind; but, in proportion as he grows up, and as, through the system of his education, Islam lays hold of him and envelops him, his brain seems to shut up, his judgment to become atrophied, and his intelligence to be stricken by paralysis and irremediable degeneration.
Their brainwashing begins at birth. When a newborn opens its eyes, the father must recite a koranic verse to the babe, and from then on, the indoctrination never stops.
I believe that is a typo.
It should read: "These MUSLIMS play both sides of the game - and can't be trusted."
And certainly never show any inclination whatsoever to root out an kill the murderers among them. I can only conclude that they are quite satisfied with what is happening."
And more and more people are getting fed up with their constant whining about "profiling" and "defamation" a la the ACLU, yet not distancing themselves from the barbarians who claim to be the true representatives of their faith with anything more than a mealymouthed "we don't condone terror".
I believe that the longer "peaceful Muslims" go without vehemently separating themselves from overt murderers the more people are going to recognize the ridiculousness of claims that Allah and the God of the Bible are one-in-the-same, and come to openly admit that Islam is a cult of death and destruction-- pressure to be politically correct notwithstanding.
In fact, the falling of this part of the politically correct veil may go a long way toward exposing the carefully crafted bizarro parallel universe the MSM and liberalism have been working for nearly to suck their "enlightened" masses into.
Is that intended to be a rhetorical question?
The last I heard they hadn't renounced Islam.
