Weekly roundup

lasso.jpgFollowing Mommy’s Steps: Hamas’ Tool to Recruit Children Bombers –

“A “music video” broadcast on a Palestinian Hamas TV station on Wednesday features a young Palestinian girl singing to her mother who is preparing to carry out a suicide bomb attack. The caption of the video reads, “Duha, daughter of suicide bomber Reem Riyashi, sings to her mother.” In 2004, Riyashi killed four Israelis after blowing herself up on a border crossing between Israel and Gaza.  Initially the little girl is frightened (“Mommy, what are you carrying in your arms instead of me.”) but after seeing her mom on TV, the daughter has a change of heart: “Instead of me you carried a bomb in your hands. Only now, I know what was more precious than us. May your steps be blessed, and may you be flawless for Jerusalem. Send greetings to our messenger Muhammad.”” 

Do you get the impression that they really, really don’t like us?  Seriously, this shows the depth and breadth of their twisted worldview.  This isn’t just some fringe lunatic.  Think about how many people had to be involved to write, act, direct, film, distribute, approve, etc. this project and to show it on TV.

Seeing as how it was Hell week on this blog, Why is it legitimate to make apocalyptic warnings about global warming and not to make them about eternity and Hell?  If someone doesn’t believe in concept of Hell, that is one thing.  But if someone does, wouldn’t the loving thing be to warn people about it?

Satire of the week: A Momentary Lapse of Reason: In Praise of Isolationism.  Very funny and very accurate.

  1. I am doing less and less that is worthy of linkage these days but certainly appreciate the free advertisement. I think I might have caught something from Shane…hopefully not as bad though.

    Keep up the good work!


  2. Frightening that people think that way. Apparently, women are being recruited as suicide bombers now, too: you can become a first-class citizen in Paradise if you blow yourself up. I cannot imagine being so desperate as to think that the best use of my life is to kill a bunch of people whom I don’t even know.
