FBI Dir. Mueller Expresses Concern About [band of sorry men’s] Broadening Influence: (ticklewire)
America’s Muslim POTUS sez Â not to worry:
“We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever. . . we absorbed it and we are stronger.” More atÂ washingtonpost.com (via Atlas Shrugs)
There are no Mollified Muslims, but a lot of Muslimized Mollies:
It is a basic rule of life that if you reward bad behavior, you get more of it. Every time Muslims either commit violence or threaten it, we reward them by capitulating. Indeed, President Obama,Â Justice Breyer, General Petraeus, and all the rest are now telling Islam, you don’t have to kill anyone, you don’t even have to threaten to kill anyone. We’ll be your enforcers. We’ll demand that the most footling and insignificant of our own citizens submit to the universal jurisdiction of Islam. So Obama and Breyer are now the “good cop” to the crazies’ “bad cop”. Ooh, no, you can’t say anything about Islam, because my friend here gets a little excitable, and you really don’t want to get him worked up. The same people who tell us “Islam is a religion of peace” then turn around and tell us you have to be quiet, you have to shut up because otherwise these guys will go bananas and kill a bunch of people.

Ezra Levant: “The idea of Greenpeace activists breaking into a Saudi or Iranian refinery and shutting it down, like they regularly do in Canada, is unthinkable …” But very, very appealing….
Janet Albrechtsen onÂ old-school leftist losers:
After the 2007 election, progressives within the media were calling for a “cleansing” of conservatives from News Limited newspapers under the ruse that such voices were no longer required in the new left-wing era under Labor and Kevin Rudd. (CLIVE ISN’T HAPPY/Tim Blair)
Hope’n’Change Arrives in Socialist Scandinavia: HOW SWEDE IT IS
Take a look at this interview, conducted by an obnoxious MSM apparatchik from Al BeBeeCeera,Â Â with Kent Ekeroth, the international secretary of SD, and you’ll see why he gives the Powers That Be such a bad case of indigestion. Many thanks toÂ Vlad Tepes for YouTubing this video from British TV, via GoV:Â “The Multicultural Society Doesn’t Work”
Leftists are furious, of course. Any criticism of non-nationals tends to inflame them, even when the values of those immigrants are opposed to the values of Western liberals. On which Mark Steyn writes:
Too many people in the free world have internalized Islam’s view of them. A couple of years ago, I visited Guantanamo and subsequently wrote that, if I had to summon up Gitmo in a single image, it would be the brand-new copy of the Koran in each cell: To reassure incoming prisoners that the filthy infidels haven’t touched the sacred book with their unclean hands, the Korans are hung from the walls in pristine, sterilized surgical masks. It’s one thing for Muslims to regard infidels as unclean, but it’s hard to see why it’s in the interests of us infidels to string along with it and thereby validate their bigotry. What does that degree of prostration before their prejudices tell them about us? It’s a problem that Muslims think we’re unclean. It’s a far worse problem that we go along with it.
Oddly, this doesn’t feel like a defeat:
Australia is trailing the rest of the world in climate change policy and risks becoming uncompetitive, a leading climate change economist says. “We are so far behind the post we risk coming last.’’ (Tim Blair)
