Not long after the Ayatollah Khomeini announced his fatwa against Salman Rushdie, the British novelist suddenly turned up on a Muslim radio station in West London late one night and told his interviewer he'd converted to Islam. Marvelous religion, couldn't be happier, Allahu Akbar and all that.
And the Ayatollah said hey, that's terrific news, glad to hear it. But we're still gonna kill you.

Here’s a tiny tidbit from YouTube
Granted the general overcredentialization of American life, the notion that it doesn't count as terrorism unless you're a member of Local 437 of the Amalgamated Union of Isolated Extremists seems perverse and reductive.
Thanks, that is a funny bit. Alas the real church has faded in the UK and Islam is moving in.
bad link but good one follows

Ok, sorry about that. Thanks!
I know damned well whom we are at war with.
And who is at war with us.
Fortunately for me, I don't rely on Obama in any shape or form for my view of reality.
My favorite recent quote... Ex-mayor Ed Koch of New York, on Hannity Thursday, Jan 7, 2010. A sober and candid view of who the enemy is.
I'll find and post the transcript later.
“Obama can’t say who we’re at war with”
No, but he knows who the Generals are: Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin.
This comment assumes that Barack is at war with the American people.
Anybody with half a wit and one eye that half works could see that before November, 2008.
On the other hand, if we are now at war, as Obama belatedly concedes, against whom are we warring? “We are at war against al-Qaida,” says the president.
Really? But what does that mean? Was the previous month’s “isolated extremist,” the Fort Hood killer, part of al-Qaida? When it came to spiritual advice, he turned to the same Yemeni-based American-born imam as the Pantybomber, but he didn’t have a fully paid-up membership card.
Nor did young Umar Farouk, come to that. Granted the general overcredentialization of American life, the notion that it doesn’t count as terrorism unless you’re a member of Local 437 of the Amalgamated Union of Isolated Extremists seems perverse and reductive.
What did the Pantybomber have a membership card in? Well, he was president of the Islamic Society of University College, London. Kafeel Ahmed, who died after driving a burning jeep into the concourse of Glasgow Airport, had been president of the Islamic Society of Queen’s University, Belfast. Yassin Nassari, serving three years in jail for terrorism, was president of the Islamic Society of the University of Westminster. Waheed Arafat Khan, arrested in the 2006 Heathrow terror plots that led to Americans having to put their liquids and gels in those little plastic bags, was president of the Islamic Society of London Metropolitan University.
Doesn’t this sound like a bigger problem than “al-Qaida,” whatever that is? The president has now put citizens of Nigeria on the secondary-screening list. Which is tough on Nigerian Christians, who have no desire to blow up your flight to Detroit.
Obama’s own words, “”I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds change in an ugly direction”.
And indeed, he has.
Tell your son Happy Birthday and that he’ll remember this one for the rest of his life, so make it a good one.
