Shoot happens

Posted by andrea - July 29th, 2006

A gun went off in Seattle today, incidentally injuring some Jewish women (whose fault it was for being in their very own community center instead of safe at home), and killing one, and endangering the freedom of the Pakistani-American man who happened to stroll by with the gun in his hand. He was also reported to have shouted “I’m a Muslim-American; I’m angry at Israel!” but we all know that can’t be true — Muslims are the Peaceful people. What he was probably shouting was “I’m a hungry American — I’m hankering for a really–” he probably meant to say “well-cooked falafel pita pocket,” but just then the gun went on its unthinking rampage.

There. Have I successfully conveyed the official spin this will receive on lefty comment boards?

More on this from Steve H. — in fact, his post is as perfect as any I have ever read on the true character of our enemies.

  3. The “official spin… on lefty comment boards…”, in the newspapers, by Seattle bureaucrats etc etc.

    Did you notice this comment at Volokh? David Bernstein responding to a commenter:

    “Many of the Arab societies have a morality that hasn’t advanced beyond that of the Ancient Hebrews.” ( [I can’t find the Rules–I can add the address?–you do still have Rules, right? ha]

    I think that there is not a little truth in that.

  4. I rarely read Volokh. I hardly have time to blog these days, much less read all the other blogs out there. But I am well aware that Arab culture (and thanks to the anti-innovation edicts of Islam, to a greater or lesser extent all the other cultures that have large Muslim populations) are stuck in some sort of primitive time warp.
