The Theater of Jihad
Welcome to the marquee performance of "Qana: The Fraud and the Furious,"
brought to you by the Acting Guild of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage.
The drama unfolded over the weekend with mob scenes across the Muslim world,
ostensibly ostensibly in response to civilian deaths in Qana, Lebanon.
Angry Muslims from Beirut to Gaza to Lahore set fire to American and Israeli
flags. They burned effigies of Western leaders. They raised their voices in
chants of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel."
The nervous nellies sitting in the world's balcony seats exclaimed that the
tragedy in Qana will make the Muslims hate us more. But if the uproar over
the accident in Qana-an Israeli exception to the Hezbollah rule sounds
like a tired old re-run to you, well, it is.
This ongoing production utilizes the same talented field of Jew-haters and
West-haters and flag-burners and machete-wielders who brought you worldwide
months of manufactured rage over the Mohammed Cartoons, crazed riots in
Nigeria over the Miss World pageant, sharia-approved murders in Somalia of
World Cup soccer fans, the fictional Jenin "massacre," the fable of Mohammed
al-Dura, and ululating protests over the corrupting influences of the
"Satanic Verses," Theo Van Gogh, Kentucky Fried Chicken and McDonald's, the
sacrilegious Burger King ice cream swirl, Valentine's Day, and Piglet from
"Winnie the Pooh."
The truth about Muslim outrage over Qana is that it's not really about the
tragic deaths at Qana just like the Mohammed cartoon jihad was not really
about the cartoons. It's a pretext for much grander goals to defeat the
infidels be they Israeli, Danish, Dutch, or American.
Remember: Muslim riots over the Mohammed cartoons printed by the Danish
Jyllands-Posten newspaper last fall were stoke and manufactured amid
attempts to bully Denmark over the International Atomic Energy Agency's
decision to report Iran to the UN Security Council for continuing with its
nuclear research program. Iran blamed Israel for the cartoons in a speech
marking the 27th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

Now, the Qana jihad, gleefully stoked by Iran, is unfolding amid mounting
U.N. Security Council pressure on Tehran to suspend its nuclear program.
What better way to distract from Hezbollah's atrocities and Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad's annihilatie-the-Jews plans than to start screaming about
Israel's "war crimes" and Western crimes against humanity.
As we watch Hezbollah's horrible parade of dead children in Qana replay
endlessly on television, here is a suggestion for all the intrepid American
journalists gallivanting with Hezbollah's handlers in the region: Perhaps
you could put down the figurative hookah pipes, take off your sympathy
hajibs, and find out the identity of the green-helmeted guy holding up baby
corpses in Qana up as props for your sensational, page-one pictures.
Is he just an ordinary bystander? A rescuer who just happened to be in the
same place 10 years ago traipsing around with dead children's bodies to
exploit an accidental Israeli bombing prompted by terrorists hiding behind
A civilian volunteer or a propaganda producer?
To his credit, MSNBC reporter Richard Engel picked up on a question the
blogosphere has been asking since the toddler corpse-paraders in Qana took
center stage: Where were all the men? His reporting underscores Hezbollah's
evil m.o.-embedding themselves in civilian populations to force exactly the
kind of tragic error from Israel that appears to have occurred at Qana.
"[W]*e went house to house in trying to figure out where all the young men
were. It seems that some of them were fighters, some of them were Hezbollah
members that were out this according to Hezbollah people who didn't want
to be interviewed but we convinced them to talk to us."
To the photographer-stenographers who were herded to the scene 8 hours after
the strike, why is it that the bodies of the children were already in a
state of rigor mortis? How to explain the sparkling clean pacifier clipped
onto a dust-covered toddler carried around by the friendly corpse-parader?
And why were the women and children kept in the building for so long?
Questions abound. Answers are as scarce as men in that Qana building.
"All the world's a stage," Shakespeare wrote. The journalists of our age
have chosen their costumes: court jesters in the Theater of Jihad.

In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild
adj : affected with madness or insanity; [syn: brainsick, crazy, demented, distracted, disturbed, mad, sick, unbalanced]
The American Heritage Dictionary
*** Warning: Unhinged liberals are hazardous to the nation's health.
They're slashing your tires. Burning your lawns. Heaving pies at Republican pundits. Hurling racist epithets at minority conservatives. Nursing nutty conspiracy theories. And pining publicly for the murder of President Bush.
And they call us crazy?
In In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild, Michelle Malkin plays conservative Margaret Mead to the alien political creatures of the American Left. With uproarious detail and rollicking reportage, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of leftists gone mad in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.
Unhinged unmasks liberals who've completely abandoned rationality and reality. They're taking chainsaws and bayonets to campaign signs. Running down political opponents with their cars. Setting fire to political opponents in effigy. Defacing war memorials. Swiping yellow ribbons off cars. And supporting the fragging of American troops.
In Unhinged, you'll meet:
- The Top 10 Unhinged Leftists, Celebrities, Media Liberals, and Politicians. - The Pennsylvania Democrat who repeatedly screamed "faggot" at his Republican opponents on the Senate floor. - The Florida Democrat who tried to run down former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris with his Cadillac. - The Democrat congressman who claimed the capture of Saddam Hussein was staged by GOP operatives to help the Bush re-election campaign. - The veteran newsman who claimed that Bush advisor Karl Rove and Osama bin Laden are working hand-in-hand to help the Republican Party. - And hundreds more unhinged liberals gone wild!
With wit, wisdom, and a bullet-proof vest, Michelle Malkin ruthlessly and raucously skewers the myths of liberal tolerance, peace, and civility. Unhinged shows how conservatives are driving their opponents mad. The good news for liberals? Self-help starts here.
