'Moderate' Islam's PR nightmare
NY Post ^ | October 06, 2010 | Editorial

Posted on 10/06/2010 3:11:48 AM PDT by Scanian

Faisal Shahzad had one last moment in the spotlight yesterday before being shipped off to a lifetime behind bars for his attempt to explode a car bomb in Times Square last May.

Not surprisingly, he took full advantage of his soapbox and captive audience.

"Brace yourselves," he warned, "because the war with Muslims has just begun. Consider me the first droplet of the flood that will follow. The defeat of the US is imminent and will happen in [the] near future."

First droplet?

Sorry, Faisal, but that war started on Sept. 11, 2001.

And most New Yorkers get it.

Still, Shahzad now will have a long time to pursue his perverse fantasies of America's demise.

While he rots away in prison.

"We are proud terrorists, and we will keep on terrorizing you," the Pakistani-born immigrant told Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum. "If I'm given 1,000 lives, I will sacrifice them all for the life of Allah."

Dream on, buddy. Better off dropping the visions of glory and start considering how truly tedious life on the slow boat to martyrdom is going to be.

Shahzad claimed that, in rigging a car with explosives in the heart of the theater district -- after receiving training and money from the Pakistani Taliban -- he was acting in accordance with the Koran, which "gives us the right to defend, and that's what I'm doing."

“I did swear, but I did not mean it,” he replied.

And I’ll bet there’s thousands more over here just like him. Good thing that he’ll be behind bars until he meets his “god”, but I personally won’t be happy until they’re all behind bars or sent back to where they come from.
There are no “moderate” muslims. By the time the rest of us wake up and understand this point, it will be too late. They are not here to enjoy the freedom of our country.

Oh marvelous, as Harry Callahan would say. How was this Rhodes Scholar of terrorists not given the death penalty? Now he can assimilate with the rest of the Islamic indoctrinators in our prisons and breed new ones from within.

Any act of terrorism whether successful or not should carry automatic death sentence, period. Especially when he effectively denounced his US citizenship under oath.

Is moderate Islam where they only partly behead you, i.e., leave your head technically attached to your body, but so it’s dangling on your shoulder?

May his new girlfriend be named Bruno! Should he, somehow, leave this planet while in prison, that is not martyrdom, it’s retribution.

The war began 1400 years ago.

STOP IT.
Moderate Islam?
Islam requires that its followers kill all non-believers. How is that possibly moderate?
Stop the PC nonsense. This is an evil oppressive intolerant system responsible for thousdands of deaths around the planet weekly. Stand up. Recognize.

I think radical islam beheads you. Moderate islam buries you in the ground up to your neck and then a crowd gathers around and throws stones at your head until you are dead.

The mask came off again. In it’s own way, reminiscent of O’s remark yesterday, on the occasion of the Seal falling off the podium: “All of you know who I am...but I’m sure there’s someone back there that’s really nervous right now.” No matter what the sufferers of political correctness say, or what the loathsome, fawning press say, jihad is a tenet/obligation of mohammedanism, and the latest King of Incompetence has just admitted his complicity. May he never see the light of day again.

SORRY NY POST but the war started about 12 years prior to that when islam declared war on America by bombing the Marines in Lebanon and the USS Cole. America just refused to recognize it as the still refuse to recognize the real scope of the war now..

life in prison is way too good for this POS

now if we had prison officials who could ensure that he had the proper cellmate, that would be one thing

but they’ll be protecting his worthless butt instead

Faisal Shahzad's single bomb failed to go off and he gets life in prison.

Bill Ayers' many bombs did go off and he got a professorship at the University of Illinois Chicago.

It's a strange world we live in.

America is a different country.

These “moderate” people have gone to England and made a home, where they can bomb a train station or bus, and burn innocent people without repercussions.

In America, millions of people have guns and are itching to to take them out of the closet. They purchased them for a reason.

There were millions of Moderate Germans during WWII, making guns,bullets, grenades and tanks. They never intended to shoot anyone. They were, indeed, moderates.

These poor German moderates ended up being bombed into ruin. Never stand between Americans and a radical and claim your a moderate. It doesn't fly here.

I forgot about the Moderates in Nagasaki and Hiroshima making guns and bullets. Poor moderates. They always seem to get the raw end of the deal. Life just isn’t fair.

America is a different country.


Perhaps, but there are TENS OF MILLIONS of our liberal countrymen who are wracked by guilt. That guilt drives these people to want to accomodate, even surrender to, this evil. To them, a mosque at Ground Zero makes perfect sense, both logically and morally.

Unfortunately, they don't. The evidence that they don't is that they voted for the likes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Chuck Schumer AFTER 9/11/01.

He sounds like a courageous terrorist with his threats, but the fact is he didnt have the balls to stay there and set his bomb off correctly.

Which is the good news.

Americans know the problem , we know about Islam, our problem is that our leader and Kenyan President is either clueless to the Muslim problem or he is a part of that problem.

I have my thoughts on that, and so do many other Americans.

How can you tell a moderate muzz from an extremist muzzie?

The moderate throws smaller rocks at the woman they are stoning to death.

There is no such thing as moderate Islam, anymore than there is a moderate Catholicism.

There are however Muslim and Catholics alike who do not follow the tenets of their respective religions.

Have you ever heard the term "Moderate Catholic"? How about a lapsed Catholic or a non-practicing Catholic?

What possible psychosis drives us to delineate that which cannot be delineated?

I hate to admit it, but from my perspective it is like a black comedy watching American continue to get punked by this good cop-bad cop game that Muslims continue to play in the West. They help perpetuate the myth that you have made up in your own minds, but each one of them plays their respective roles.

** Osama bin Laden - Bad ... Imam Rauf - Good **

Bad Muslim - Good Muslim --- Bad Nazi - Good Nazi

Joseph Goebbels could have learned a thing or two from the Muslims, but in retrospect, it was the Muslims who learned from the Nazis.

I really dont understand why this is so hard for Americans and the West to comprehend...

The West might not be at war with Islam, but Islam is at war with the West. WAKE UP !!

muslims worship satan... there is no comparison. I have known a few muzzies... they ALL state that 9/11 was our fault... they all say that they will rule America with sharia law... they are America's enemy... they are my enemy... we are at war with them and there will be open warfare in our streets one day. England announced that there is a 100% chance that they will be hit again soon... those that will perpetrate this terrorism are being called “moderates”... until they act. **** islam.

I really dont like doing this, but there is a a lot of “chatter” over here about the next attack — the mood is very much like the summer of 2001 and so I do think that something is going to happen soon. -— and so... for what it is worth - the specifics... 24 December - theaters + shopping malls in multiple locations.

MI5 stated that an attack is “imminent”... as reported by george stephanopolis on abc this morning. If you think that life will go on normally for muzzies if we lose another 3000 Americans or more... you are simply wrong. I am not promoting violence... but I know what will motivate it.
