The Media Gets It Wrong

Mrs Critter and I recently returned from a tour related to the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, and other events of the Second World War. With that as background, I found this clipping fascinating.

Too bad this report wasn't anywhere near right. It would have saved much of the world a whole lot of trouble.

Update: I should have noted that it was during this period in the Landsberg Fortress prison that Hitler wrote Mein Kampf. That should have been a clue!

The Washington Redskins

Two comments on the flap over the name of the NFL team in our nation's capital. Both are in the form of cartoons.

'Nuff said.

Sub-Human Barbarians

Every time I think they can't possibly get more debased and perverted, they can't possibly sink to an even deeper level of barbarity, the sub-humans of al Qaeda and their ISIS affiliate prove me wrong.

ISIS fighters have told families in Iraq to hand over their daughters for sex, saying that the women must sleep with militants in order to cleanse themselves.

According to the Mirror, leaflets in the captured cities of Mosul and Tikrit claim the women – virgins or not – must join jihad, or Holy war, and cleanse themselves by sleeping with militants.

Angelina Jolie and British Foreign Secretary William Hague recently held a conference to bring attention to the use of rape and sexual violence as a weapon of war. That is really a crime against humanity — apparently now used almost exclusively by Islamists.

In Ninevah Province, this same ISIS published what has been described as a "rape fatwa". In pertinent part, their notice says

Therefor, we ask all the people of this province to bring forward unmarried women so they fulfill their duty of pleasing their brothers, the mujahideen. Who ever fails to comply, shall face consequences imposed by the sharia law. [red emphasis added, bold emphasis in original]
I have frequently noticed behavior by Islamists that would absolutely disqualify them from membership in the human race. But I don't think I have seen anything this barbaric since back in 2007 (also by al Qaeda sub-humans in Iraq). But for al Qaeda and its affiliates, this is just a normal al Qaeda day.
