"If Muslim religious leaders around the world will not publicly condemn the taking of children as hostages and their subsequent slaughter — if those 'men of faith' will not issue a condemnation without reservations or caveats — then no one need pretend any longer that all religions are equally sound and moral."Western soldiers, whether Americans, Brits, Russians or Israelis, do not take hundreds of children hostage, then shoot them in cold blood while detonating bombs in their midst. The attack in Beslan wasn't about Russia's brutal incompetence in Chechnya. It was about religious bigotry so profound that the believer can hold a gun to a child's head, pull the trigger and term the act divine justice."We will hear complaints that the Russian special forces should have waited — even after the terrorists began shooting children. Negotiations are the heroin of Westerners addicted to delusion. Who among us would have waited when he or she saw fleeing children cut down by automatic weapons? The guilt is entirely upon the Islamic extremists who have led the religion they claim to cherish into the realms of nightmare."Where are the mass demonstrations in the Muslim world to mourn these children? Or are the children of the kaffir fair game? Islam has descended into a pit of evil unseen since the Nazis, who butchered Jewish children as if they were another species. Winston Churchill rebuked Western pacifists by saying the Nazis were driven by 'currents of hatred so intense as to sear the souls of those who swim upon them.' Can Islam coexist with the modern world?Savages: Russian Mother given Sophie's Choice - "They separated us, and said: 'You go with the boy. Your sister can stay here with her.' I cried. I begged them. Alana cried. The women around us wept. One of the Chechens said: 'If you don't go now, you don't go at all. You stay here with your children and we will shoot all of you.' I didn't have time to think what I was doing. I pressed Alan even stronger to myself, and I went out, and I heard my daughter crying and calling for me." More at AllahpunditCommand Post has harrowing timeline: "They shot at our backs as we were running out of the school. I heard the whine of the bullets. One of the girls who was running close to me was wounded. Two of my friends picked her up and carried her. There were about 50 of us, boys and girls, all senior pupils. Only the older kids could run away. As for the younger pupils, they just couldn’t get out of that hell because the terrorists had blocked all the ways out for them. So they could only stay there and watch us running away."From pan-Arab Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper: The Painful Truth: All the World's Terrorists are Muslims "Most perpetrators of suicide operations in buses, schools and residential buildings around the world for the past 10 years have been Muslims. The picture is humiliating, painful and harsh for all of us." Via LGFOfficial statement from EU: "We would like to know from the Russian authorities how this tragedy could have happened." When the EU blames Putin & not the terrorists, they're essentially collaborators. Putin to EU: Fuck off.Speaking of sniveling caveats - Arab News: "There are 2 reasons why yesterday’s school siege ended so bloodily. The first is that the terrorists who seized over 1200 children were from the start prepared to shed any amount of innocent blood. The second is that the man on the other side is not Boris Yeltsin, who believed in compromise, negotiations, give & take."In fact, the shootout began when the terrorists shot & killed students who were trying to escape, students who were dying because they'd had no food & water for 3 days, & had begun to drink their own urine. The only creature capable of coldly watching children die, still less of shooting them in the back, is a psychopath (tho Leftist romantics love to call them freedom fighters). You cannot negotiate with psychopaths. The Arab News editorial is a beautiful example of the moral & spiritual bankruptcy of the Arab world. See Christian Science Monitor: A Survivor's TaleAli Abdullah, Islamic scholar in Bahrain: "I have no doubt in my mind that this is the work of the Israelis who want to tarnish the image of Muslims and are working alongside Russians who have their own agenda against the Muslims in Chechnya."Q: Is is possible to tarnish the image of Muslims after the last 3 years? How?Tehran Times: "The school hostage incident was one of the most heinous types of terrorist act. HOWEVER - the Russian government should have exhausted all possibilities before resorting to force to free the hostages. In fact, what happened on the ground cannot be regarded as a victory against terrorism."
