Did anyone else find it interesting that Iran’s nuclear computer got hacked — and the next day Jimmy Carter checked himself into the hospital? This means that if and when Israel finally bombs Iran’s nukes, it could finally kill the man. Apparently, the news merely upset Jimmah’s stomach and he was released the next day.
The week before, we learned of a summer interview with a Muslim U.S. soldier on al Jazeera:
(CNSNews.com) - Zachari Klawonn, a Muslim U.S. Army specialist stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, told the Arabic-language television network Al Jazeera in a recent interview that training he had undergone in the U.S. military was “propaganda against Islam.”
U.S. Army Specialist Klawonn told Al Jazeera he was subject to disrespectful comments and harassment of his property from fellow soldiers and from the Army command itself.
Aww, poor baby! In civilized societies, the way one responds and gets through that is called a character-buiding exercise.
…When Klawoon appeared on Al Jazeera on Aug. 24, the moderator asked, “Could you tell us how this anti-Islam campaign which coincides with the month of Ramadan affected your situation at the Fort Hood base which witnessed a shooting by a former Muslim American soldier? How are you being treated these days?”
“Absolutely,” said Klawonn. “Even before that horrific attack [by Maj. Hasan], the overwhelming sense of Islamophobia was present in the U.S. military. It’s evident within the anti-terrorism training as well as the vibe in the general environment around me, and unfortunately some of the discrimination I have been through is the result of that environment.” […]
Now, people, there’s no Muslim-relevant miltary training that isn’t going to be interpreted negatively by a Muslim. If you prepare our military to defend us against any Muslim aggressors, it will only be seen as an assault. But let’s see: even with all the military mosques and imams — plus the mental gymnastics and curbs to the First Amendment we’ve been engaging in voluntarily to help the Muslims understand that we’re really trying to see them as part of “the human familiy” despite their best efforts to destroy that perception — even the most basic, sanitized, de-Islam-ized version of the training that necessarily deals with the Muslim world is viewed by Muslims as “anti-Islam.” When will our political and military leadership finally understand that they can’t win these people over?
We can’t keep trying to find a middle ground between sanity and insanity, for that’s called lunacy. In order for Muslims to not feel under assault, there would have to be no response to Muslim aggression whatsoever, and actually there would have to be no non-Muslims.
Even if you’re sick of hearing about outer space, we think you’re going to agree that this is pretty cool. Astronomers have discovered a new planet that may actually be able to support life. The planet, called Gliese 581g, is about 20 light years away from Earth, so it’s gonna take you a while to get there. However, it does possess a few traits that make it stand out to scientists. According to an article that will be published in Astrophysical Journal, the planet is “squarely in the middle of the habitable zone of the star.” The habitable zone means that the planet “orbits the star at a distance that allows for the planet to have both liquid water and an atmosphere.” Those are two very important things for [sustainability of] life.
As is lack of Muslims.
