Islamist "Walking Time Bomb" Agrees With Andrew Sullivan: SkyBomb Likely A "Hoax" To "Distract"

He doesn't mention the Lieberman-Lamont primary all the world is apparently buzzing about -- one of the reasons to "question the timing" suggested by St. Andrew of the Sacred Heart-Ache.

He does, however, mention the need to "distract" from the Hezballah-Israel war, which is second reason (of three) mentioned by Sullivan.

The company he keeps lately, huh?

Good stuff, good stuff. He's got this fierce rebuttal by Janet Daley:

This enemy does not even bother to offer explanations for its actions that fall within the acceptable bounds of Western debate: it is overtly racist, explicitly imperialistic and unapologetically inhumane.

So it is left to the media to make the apologias. First, the home-grown terrorist threat was the fault of racist Britain for denying opportunity and educational advancement to Muslim youth.

Then it turned out that most of those involved in the propagation of terrorism were middle-class and university-educated.

At least two of the suspects arrested in the latest alleged plot are converts to Islam: they cannot be said to have suffered a lifetime of embittering discrimination for their newly embraced faith.

This phenomenon is more reminiscent of Baader-Meinhoff than of the intifada - a fanatical cult of rebellious malcontents who are “alienated” (the word of the moment) by the actions of their government and the mores of their country.

This pernicious nonsense is treated by the BBC as if it were the height of reasonableness.

Backlash. We have been sick of being murdered for a while.

We are growing almost as sick of being informed by Muslim apologists that we deserve to be murdered, and we are disgusted by the media's peddling of this line as if it's necessary "balance."

I don't recall the media suggesting Matthew Shepppard or James Byrd might have somehow deserved murdering as, from the point of view of their killers, there were legitimate historical grievances that had to be addressed through the political vehicle of cold-blooded murder. Nor do I remember them giving the "pro-homosexual-killing" or "pro-black-lynching" "moderates" a forum to justify the murders.

Nor should they have, of course. But neither should they be doing so now.
