The real reason why the global Muslim community doesn’t get upset over Somali pirates? It’s a family tradition.
Fitzgerald: “Islam Is Not Monolithic” and Divisions Within the Camp of Islam
Another week, another Donors’ Conference. This time, it’s Somalia. Somalia, described — does anyone know what this phrase that has come into fashion really means? — as a “failed state.” And these “failed states” — which all happen to be Muslim states — have to be propped up, and propped up, and propped up, it seems, by money from non-Muslim states, non-Muslim taxpayers. Because, you see, it is the absence of money that causes these states to be “failed states.” And any Muslim state will become a “failed state,” apparently, if it lacks the unmerited manna of oil-and-gas revenues (the Muslim members of OPEC have received more than twelve trillion dollars since 1973 alone), or if it is not given all kinds of special benefits and enormous injections of Infidel aid.
Regarding that aid, see Pakistan, see Egypt, see Jordan, and, of course, see the Favorite Charity of Everyone, apparently, the local Arab shock troops of the Lesser Jihad against Israel, the soi-disant “Palestinians” — who, as a separate people, were founded round about late 1967, a few months after the Six-Day War ended, and it was time to take a different propagandistic tack.
