The gunman, who employees said claimed to be a Muslim angry at Israel, forced his way through the center's security door after an employee had punched in her security code, said Marla Meislin-Dietrich, co-worker who was not at the building at the time. Staff members said they overheard him saying "'I am a Muslim American, angry at Israel,' before opening fire on everyone," Meislin-Dietrich said. "He was randomly shooting at everyone."Ah, yes. "He was randomly shooting at everyone."
And therein lies the crux of the different interpretations of what is now happening in Lebanon. Whereas the IDF is targeting and striking those locations in which Hezbollah has entrenched itself, and those things that can be used to resupply, re-arm and protect them, Hezbollah is deliberately targeting Israeli civilians (similar to the Iraqi insurgency and al Quada's Iraq Division, who also largely focus on murdering civilians).
Another interesting note from the above article: local police are calling this a "hate crime." Hm. If it is a "hate crime" for a jihadist to walk into a Jewish Community Center and start firing at unarmed civilians, why is it not also a "hate crime" to carry out a war against a sovereign nation, based on its religion, by deliberately firing rockets and missiles at civilians within it?
Well, according to many of the "intelligentsia" who teach our children, this is an unfair comparison. A recent article at FrontPageMag helps to explain this discrepancy - as well as how far in jihadist-appeasing outer space that American college professors now reside:
More than 1,000 such professors have signed a petition that is currently circulating on American college campuses. Written in the name of “academics who condemn Israel's aggression against Lebanon and Gaza,” the petition waxes indignant about Israel’s alleged crimes, including a “brutal bombing and invasion of Gaza,” and “acts of Israeli state terrorism” in Lebanon. More noteworthy, however, is what the petition does not say. Not only is there no mention of Hamas or Hezbollah, but reading the petition one might conclude that terrorism plays no part in the current conflagration. Instead the petition calls for the immediate release of jailed terrorists, euphemistically described as 'Palestinian and Lebanese political prisoners,'* and effectively erases the role of anti-Israel terrorism in precipitating the current by asserting that “Israel's destructive and expansionist policies are primarily to blame for the seemingly perpetual ‘Middle East crisis.’”(*For an example of these implicitly innocent "political prisoners, click here)
Well. And it's a wonder why so many young Americans view the middle East conflicts in such a similarly demented, decontextualized, justice-defying and jihadist-sympathizing light.
Europe is clearly the canary in the coalmine for America. For as its "liberal" Muslim immigration policies are now so impacting that culture, so too will ours impact America.
Although the following pictures are certainly not representative of all Muslims in Europe, they do present a grim and enduring reminder of what we can look forward to here, if we do not begin to take a much harder look at what we are doing to ourselves, by sacrificing our national security at the altar of politically-correct security protocols.
And similarly, these photos remind us of the very real need to counter-protest these maniacs wherever and whenever they rear their heads - despite the outcries of their leftist sympathizers, appeasers and enablers:
