OSLO, Norway (AP) -- Nobel Peace Prize winner Tawakkul Karman says she believes the pro-democracy revolts that have swept the Arab world will help "drive out" al-Qaida terrorists.

Karman told The Associated Press on the eve of Saturday's award ceremony that the autocratic leaders that were toppled from Tunisia to her native Yemen created an environment where extremism could grow.

Probably not. The extremists don’t have a problem governming with the old Hitler adage, “Kill 100. If that don’t work, kill 1000. If that don’t work, kill 10,000.”

Al-Qaeda won’t be “driven out”, so much as the Muslim Brotherhood, who originally granted the franchise and supported it through thick and thin for the past twenty years or so, just withdraws its financial and logistical support, and takes over the functions of international terrorism. Now that they have several states to use as a base (Libya, Egypt and soon Syria), they no longer have to hide out in tribal enclaves, and may openly exercise their agenda to create the Worldwide Caliphate.

Which will be based in Jerusalem, as soon as the Jews can be driven out of Israel, and the land reclaimed as Palestine.

I’ll bet she thinks Disney animated movies are real life depictions too. Oh wait, that would be Disney the infidel, so never-mind.

Well, terrorism against Christians isn’t really terrorism in her mind, so she’s probably quite accurate. Anything an Islamic lunatic does, could never be termed terrorism, right dear...

Thanks Free ThinkerNY.

It's an environment called "the Domain of Islam".

Her version of the Arab Spring is like Disney's version of the animals: both completely unlike life because there's not an a-hole to be seen.

Tawakkul Karman (L), the chairwoman of Women Journalists without Chains, shouts during an anti-government protest in Sanaa January 29, 2011. Yemen's ruling party has called for dialogue with the opposition, the country's state news agency said late on Friday, in a bid to end anti-government protests fuelled by popular unrest across the Arab World.

Very perceptive. Some years back they gave the prize to some woman who actually went around Africa planting trees.
