Paul Krugman Proved A Fool By British Islamists

Paul Krugman, New York Times’ resident Bush Hater & Appeaser (and man, that’s quite an accomplishment) wrote a widely discussed piece on Monday:  Fearing Fear Itself.

It features all of the now-routine liberal rhetoric designed to undercut and de-legitimize our war effort and our American government itself.  But the key line of the piece was this:

For one thing, there isn’t actually any such thing as Islamofascism — it’s not an ideology; it’s a figment of the neocon imagination.

What is it with Krugman and Andrew Sullivan suddenly taking themselves into “Imagination” world?  As if 9/11 never happened…. and 3,000 of our citizens weren’t killed by an organized, worldwide radical movement. 

But I digress….

It didn’t take long for those imaginary Islamofascists to prove Krugman a fool.

Hate Literature Easily Found at UK Mosques – Telegraph (UK) …. (h/t – The Corner)

Researchers for the centre-Right think tank Policy Exchange claims it found the literature in a quarter of the 100 mosques and Islamic institutions they visited.

Many of the publications allegedly called on British Muslims to segregate themselves from non-Muslims and for unbelievers to be treated as second-class citizens wherever possible.

The literature also allegedly contained repeated calls for gays to be thrown from mountains and tall buildings and for women to be subjugated.

Policy Exchange said that among the documents were the anti-Semitic forgery, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, and other publications peddling bizarre conspiracy theories.

Anthony Browne, the director of Policy Exchange, said: “It is clearly intolerable that hate literature is peddled at some British mosques.

“I am sure the majority of moderate Muslims will be as horrified as everyone else that pamphlets advocating jihad by force, hatred for insufficiently observant Muslims, Christians and Jews, and segregationhave found their way into the UK’s mosques.”

Yep, I’m sure.  We’ve been waiting for the moderate Muslims to take back their religion for quite some time.  I have no doubt this will be the latest tipping point.  (*sarcasm off*)

Someone please help me…. I don’t recall the last time any similar hate propaganda has been easily found at Christian churches or Jewish synagogues.   I’m happy to be proved wrong.

What is so funny (if it weren’t pathetic) is that Krugman has been played the fool by the very folks he says don’t exist and aren’t a threat

PS - Krugman’s separation of Iran from the larger Islamic terror threat is very disingenuous as both Iran has been documented to support Islamic terror groups around the world with cash, troops and weapons.

Media Bias in Coverage of Israeli Response to Terrorist Attacks from Gaza

In few areas is the media as biased as it is in its coverage of Israel. Almost from the moment Israel turned over control of the Gaza Strip to Palestinian authorities in 2005, residents of the territory have fired rockets into sovereign Israeli territory. Last year, terrorists crossed into Israel murdering several soldiers and kidnapping another. They’re still holding that man hostage.

In order to tighten the screws on Hamas, the terrorist organization which controls the Strip, and get it to comply with international law, Israel is reducing the amount of electricity and natural gas it supplies to the territory. But, instead of focusing in Hamas’s toleration (indeed, sanction) of rocket attacks (from territory it controls) on civilian targets in Israel for two years, a McClatchy newspaper report (featured on Yahoo!’s home page) focuses on the toll of the Israeli cut-off on the Palestinians.

At the same time, this “news” service gives short shrift to the toll of the Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.

If this news outlet were less biased, they might also consider how the policies of the terrorist administration of the territory drain the lifeblood of Gaza’s economy away. For example, author Dion Nissenbaum writes, “Greenhouses along the coast lie abandoned.” He doesn’t note that Israelis built those greenhouses when they controlled the territory and that Palestinians looted them right after the Jewish State ceded control. That is, the greenhouses have not been abandoned because of Israeli policies, but because of the failiure of Palestinian authorities to secure and rebuild them.

Nissenbaum does include two quotations from one Israeli official defending the reductions (at the end of the article), but largely focuses on the economic privations of the Gazans. Since he includes speculation that the Israeli cut-off may violate international law, he should also point out that the Palestinian rocket attacks clearly violate international law and note as well the United Nations has done nothing to stop them.

If he were an honest reporter, he would begin by noting that Israeli is limiting the supply of electricity and natural gas to Gaza in response to terrorist attacks coming from Gaza, rather than waiting until the end of his article to introduce this information.
