Pish and Wind?

Part of a article by Mark Steyn..

Mark Steyn("The Spectator")analyses the wildly disproportionate anger over the Gitmo guard whose urine accidentally made contact with a copy of the Koran.

Robert Mugabe destroyed a mosque the other day. This was in Hatcliffe Extension, a shanty town on the edge of Harare razed by the ‘police’. Mr Mugabe is an equal-opportunity razer: he also bulldozed a Catholic-run Aids centre. Indeed, his goons may have been entirely unaware of their act of Islamophobia. They just went in and totalled the lot, every house, every store, every building. The government destroyed the town in order to drive the locals into the countryside to live on the land stolen from white farmers. Quite how that’s meant to benefit any of the parties involved or the broader needs of Zimbabwe is beyond me, but then I’m no expert in Afro-Marxist economic theory.

The point is that the world’s Muslims seem entirely cool with Infidel Bob razing a mosque. Yet when fraudulent stories about the Koran being flushed down a toilet and other ‘desecrations’ of the Holy Book by US guards at Guantanamo are planted in the media, the planet goes bananas.

Guantanamo exists in a legal limbo about which different opinions can be held. And, as in every prison camp, there are no doubt foolish and wicked things that go on. But no serious allegation of torture has been substantiated, and in the al-Qa’eda training manual found in Manchester a couple of years back Rule 18 couldn’t be more explicit: when held captive by the infidel, members ‘must insist on proving that torture was inflicted on them’ and ‘complain to the court of mistreatment while in prison’. A healthy scepticism would seem to be advisable, especially when the alleged forms of torture involve lurid, if psychologically rather obvious, fantasies of menstruating Western women. Instead, Thomas Friedman of the New York Times runs around shrieking like a hysterical ninny that Washington needs to shut down Guantanamo right now — not because of anything that actually occurred there but because of negative ‘perceptions’ of the camp in the overseas press.

Once again , Cut and Pastes and copyright. The Spectator is free to register , it's worth it as there are quite a few good articles to be perused.

I wonder when the next leader of the Conservative Party will click and expend some of their funds on making Steyn the party's Media Liaison Operative, or whatever it is that that creature Alastair Campbell calls himself. I don't care what it would cost - I'd be happy to dip into my pocket for the cause.

Sorry PTP

Still new to this, will remember next time. :oops:

And yes your right there are some good articles!

Right that's enough grovelling now :D
