BLOG DESCRIPTION News/ commentary/ humor about the Global War Against Islamist Terror, Jihad, and Political Islam (Islamism).
REVIEW: This is an interesting blog, chronicling the lack of tolerance people in majority-Islamic countries have for the Christian minorities in their midst, as well as news about 9/11, the war on terror, etc.
Problems are that lots of posts consist only of a headline and an embedded Youtube video, which of course Kindle users can't see. And occasionally a news headline is given, but you must click on a link to go to a webpage to read the actual article.
So, check it out via the two-week free subscription, and compare it to the actual website, to decide if you'd like to maintain a subscription or find the blog of interest.
Cross Worshipper Burned in One Sided Sectarian Clash
When this story was first reported, the media described it the way it always describes Coptic persecution at the hands of Muslims -- as a "sectarian-clash." As this more revealing report makes clear, however, it was anything but a "sectarian-clash" (which suggests Christians and Muslims, in more or less equal numbers, fighting and rioting). Instead, a Muslim set a Christian on fire, and then other Muslims attacked his father, stabbing him to death -- this in a village where Christians make up maybe 3-4% of the total population. Keep this in mind the next time you hear about "sectarian clashes" occurring where Muslims predominate and non-Muslims live as minorities.
But but but...... using Copts as kindling is just a cultural thing. The Koran clearly states that building a fire using the People of the Book is like totally wrong or something.
