Roll the video of Muslims desecrating World War II graves in Benghazi Libya and then my comments.
In yesterday’s post, Welcome to Moroland, Seraphic Secret pointed out that in 1902 Muslim warriors of the Moro Islands in the Philippines murdered a group of American soldiers because the Americans were unarmed and unsuspecting. The Moros’ explanation “always came down to the fact that the soldiers were in their power and could be killed, so therefore they were.”
The truth is chilling but in a way it is refreshing. The Moro killed infidels because they could.
The Moro were not sophisticated in the ways of media. They had not learned from the international left that in order to gain sympathy one has only to present as a victim. Once the status of victimhood is achieved, presto, anything goes.
Thus, the entire Palestinian narrative rests on the foundation of a false victimhood that has come to justify perhaps the most depraved, openly anti-Semitic culture the world has ever known, a culture whose repeated calls for the genocide of the Jewish people have been met with an international yawn, as if to say: “Well, the Jews have no one to blame but themselves.” Which is a lot like cutting off a man’s leg and then blaming him for limping.
As the Arab Spring unfolds—cue Mel Brooks’ ‘Springtime for Hitler’ extravaganza—in all its malignant glory, countless mobs all over the Muslim world proudly articulate their victimhood.
An American soldier goes rogue and commits an atrocity against Afghan civilians so of course the natural reaction is for Islamist mobs in Libya to desecrate the graves of Christian and Jewish World War II servicemen, merrily chant Allahu Akbar, and hack away at a cross.
That’s exactly what you would do if, say, a group of Muslims—who, remember, have nothing to do with Islam—murdered 3,000 American civilians, brought down a few skyscrapers, punched a massive hole in the Pentagon and immolated every passenger on a civilian flight over Pennsylvania. You’d immediately rush to the nearest Muslim cemetry and rip up a few graves.
Interpolation: Nevermind that the Arab-Muslim world aligned with the Nazis during World War II. That’s just a minor footnote to those who, as young Barry Hussein Obama declared at Harvard, “open their hearts and minds” to the critical theories of the Jew-hating rascist Derrick Bell.
Let us be clear, the Muslims in Tunisia desecrated the graves of infidel non-Muslims because:
1. The dead cannot fight back.
2. Because that’s what good Islamists do when the opportunity arises.
