The Self-Pity Of The Hideous Zubeidat With Not A Word For The VictimsÂ (Hugh Fitzgerald)
But every time she appears, in that hijab, every time she opens her mouth to express her blaming everyone for the problems of her sons, her innocent wonderful sons, she does do the only good deed she has possibly ever done in her life: she makes us all more aware of the full craziness of minds raised on Islam, or minds that decided to take — as she did — a refresher course on Islam. And we look at her, and not only are we filled with well-merited loathing for her, but her hijabbed face is etched indelibly in our minds and memories, and that too is going to have salutary long term effects. May she appear many more times on American television, and on Youtube, for all to see, all to take in. Â –Tags:Â Zubeidat Tsarnaeva
This must be a very, very dark time for American Muslims.
Just a theory, but it may be a slightly darker time for American non-Muslims currently mourning their dead, having shrapnel picked out of the faces and bodies, or being fitted with prosthetic limbs. Further on theseÂ dark timesÂ from Mark Steyn:
The Tsarnaevs’ mom, now relocated from Cambridge to Makhachkala in delightful Dagestan, told a press conference the other day that she regrets ever having gotten mixed up with those crazy Yanks: “I would prefer not to have lived in America,” she said.
Not, I’m sure, as much as the Richard family would have preferred it. Eight-year-old Martin was killed; his sister lost a leg; and his mother suffered serious brain injuries. What did the Richards and some 200 other families do to deserve having a great big hole blown in their lives? Well, according to the New York Times, they and you bear collective responsibility. Writing on the op-ed page, Marcello Suarez-Orozco, dean of the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, and Carola Suarez-Orozco, a professor at the same institution, began their ruminations thus:
“The alleged involvement of two ethnic Chechen brothers in the deadly attack at the Boston Marathon last week shouldÂ prompt Americans to reflect on whether we do an adequate job assimilating immigrantsÂ who arrive in the United States as children or teenagers.”Â
Quite so. Americans should have given these kids educations and jobs and places to worship and … oh, wait.

The job we do assimilating immigrants? Since when Â is that our job?
