Islamists versus civilization

Londoners are responding to the bombings in their city with typical pluck. EuroNews TV is showing images of emergency workers calmly and efficiently tending to the wounded while police commence the investigation that no doubt will lead back to the Finsbury Park mosque.

Friday afternoon, deport everyone inside, shutter the place.

Scotland Yard has just announced that there are 33 confirmed fatalities from the three train explosions and an unknown number from the the bus explosion.

Then DAC Brian Paddick of the Metropolitan police answered a question at the press conference with this dhimmi-ism: "As far as I am concerned, 'Islamic' and 'terrorist' are two words that do not go together." Good grief.

The same group that attacked civilians on trains in Madrid last year has taken credit for the London bombings. According to the Associated Press, al-Qaida in Europe issued a statement on an Islamist website:
Rejoice, Islamic nation. Rejoice, Arab world. The time has come for vengeance against the Zionist crusader government of Britain in response to the massacres Britain committed in Iraq and Afghanistan ... We warned the British government and the British people repeatedly. We have carried out our promise and carried out a military attack in Britain after great efforts by the heroic mujahedeen over a long period to ensure its success ... We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all crusader governments that they will receive the same punishment if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The G8 protesters and Geldof groupies wearing "insurgent" t-shirts should consider the company they keep, and how their allegiances call into question their goals.
