The surprising truth about Rage Boy, America's hated poster-boy of Islamic radicalism
The Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 11/10/07 | Patrick French

Don't you hate Islamic Rage Boy? 'MoBlows', writing on the Jihad Watch website, certainly does.

"I just want to put my fist down his throat," he says. The 'boy' in question rose to prominence earlier this year when he was photographed at a demonstration in Srinagar, capital of Indian-administered Kashmir.

Later, he was spotted waving his fist at another camera during a protest against the awarding of a knighthood to author Salman Rushdie.

With his straggly beard and big shouting mouth, Rage Boy certainly looks like a threat.

His scary face now appears on boxer shorts and bumper stickers, and he scores more than a million results on Google.

A regular spoof diary appears online in his name and he has come to stand for all that is most frightening about radical Islam.

Arriving at a simple, traditional three-storey Kashmiri house, I was taken up steep wooden steps by the light of a gas lamp to the top of the building. There, standing in an empty room, dressed in a salwar kameez and zip-up cardigan, with crooked teeth and a quizzical look on his face, was Islamic Rage Boy.

Shakeel Ahmad Bhat is a 29-year-old failed militant. Over two days, sitting cross-legged at the home he shares with his mother and smiling shyly much of the time, Shakeel told me, through an interpreter, his life story and why he had come to wave his fists at the cameras

I can’t believe I read the whole thing. Libfascist claptrap. Awwwwwwww, pooor RageBoy. Meanwhile, this purveyor of journalistic obscenity got a free trip to Kashmir, believing his hippie street creds are still worth maintaining.

Rather we mock him and we are amused by his antics.

There are instances of studied cruelty being enacted on ordinary citizens. This, by coldly calculating muslims in America and is no laughing matter. I refer to incidents on domestic flights and videos of bridges and high rise commercial buildings.

If the majority of the public, can evoke the same kind of absolutely rib splitting laughter right in North America, at these extremists-

Then we have halfways got 'em beat.

A popular bumper sticker in the United States features his angry scowl beside the slogan: "Honk if you love the tender embrace of a mountain goat on a chilly, star-filled evening."

This is from the article. Has anyone seen this bumper sticker ?

The surprising truth about Rage Boy is that there is nothing at all surprising in his story. He is poor and uneducated. He has led an unsuccessful and unhappy life. He is from a region of the world that largely peaceful before Islamic radicals turned neighbor against neighbor one atrocity at a time, until the region became embroiled in bloody religious and ethnic conflicts. Most of the sorrows of his life stem from the fact that he is caught up in that bloody conflict. Most of us had already deduced those facts from the pictures of him, without having a smartypants journalist tell us. No surprises at all in the story.

Rage boy is precisely what is depicted in the picture: a grotesque caricature of what humans can be twisted into when the forces of evil exploit poverty, ignorance and sorrow. We pity him. And yes, we also laugh at him, because laughter is a gentle weapon that civilized people use to fight his kind of evil.

It is easy to pity him when he’s sitting alone on floor of his mother’s hut, but it is dangerous to underestimate the amount of evil he can perpetrate he’s with a mob of like minded fellows. He is exactly the kind of person that burnt Jewish businesses on Kristalnacht, that dragged peaceful businessmen and scholars through the streets during the Cultural Revolution, that filled the Killing Fields with 1/3 of Cambodia’s population, that slaughtered hundreds of thousands with machetes in Rwanda, and that stone women to death in Iran and Afghanistan today.

Oh, I can't take credit for anything but posting them here. I've been collecting them where I find them, but I didn't do any of them. Thanks though...

Nurse Ratchet was probably fashioned after the disgustingly slimy ms. rodham.

That works for me! Idiots seem to believe anything they see on camera. Maybe casting hillary as Ratchet would give them a CLUE!

WTF with this headline? “America’s Hated Poster Boy?” I’m American. I’m relatively well informed. Never heard of him, never seen any merchandise. And best of all, the author never actually talks to any actual Americans.

Same here. Never heard of him, never saw his picture before. I don't spend my nights sticking needles in his image, either.

I like that picture ... it gives me a little hope for the future.

Rage Girl is all freaking out and screeching hatred ... the kids look like they're thinking "WTF? This is lame ... let's go play soccer."
