New Epithet for Islamic Terrorist: “Somali Pirate”

By Debbie Schlussel
Congratulations to the media! They’ve just developed a new way to avoid saying “Islamic terrorist.”
You’ve, no doubt, heard the news story of Islamic terrorists from Somalia trying to hijack a cruise line, off the coast of Africa, this weekend. The men were armed with assorted weapons, including guns and grenade launchers.
But the media called them “Somali pirates.” Guess what religion virtually all Somalis are? Hint: It begins with an “I,” ends with an “M,” and has “SLA” in the middle. Here’s another hint: The leader of the “Somali Pirates” is named Mohamed Abdi Hassan, clearly an Islamic name.
No mention anywhere in the mainstream media, though, of the religion or that these terrorists are likely tied to Al Qaeda. I guess they forgot about Qaeda’s “Black Hawk Down.”
Hmmm . . . Trying to hijack a ship full of innocent people, using weapons that will kill them. Sounds like terrorism to me.
But the media just won’t bring themselves to call them what they are: Islamic terrorists.
Gee, I wonder what, today, they’d call the scum who hijacked the Achille Lauro and murdered Leon Klinghoffer. Since “journalists” would shy away from putting the now-exalted “Palestinian” in front of “pirates,” I think the choice phrase would be “alternatively-heritaged pirates.”
Yup, Leon Klinghoffer was murdered by “alternatively-heritaged pirates” whose religion didn’t hijack the Achille Lauro. The differently-heritaged pirates hijacked Islam. Right?
Ain’t our PC press grand?!

“Pirate” affiliation concealed

The MSM has provided a fair amount of coverage today of the "pirate" attempt to hijack a cruise ship off the coast of Somalia. But most, if not all, of the MSM outlets have refused to identify the "pirates" [and their leader Mohamed

Somali “Pirates” whitewashed by MSM/DNC

The MSM/DNC strives mightily to hide the identity and affiliation of the “pirates” that attacked the cruise ship off the coast of Somalia. See the Reuters and CBS/AP stories.

Islamic Terrorists Attempt To Hijack Cruise Ship

I though this sounded a little fishy when I first saw it: Pirates Attack Cruise Ship MIAMI—Pirates fired a rocket-propelled grenade and machine guns Saturday in an attack on a luxury cruise liner off the east African coast, the

Got that PC/MC disease bad, don’t they? Just can’t bring the word to the tonque, eh?
Today, I have completed the online full text blog for Andre Servier’s book Islam and the Psychology of the Musulman. A French scholar of Islam, the book, published only once in 1922 in French and translated to English in 1924 is now available to the world.
Here are a few of Servier’s observations:
“The intelligence of an Arab rises as high as the faculty of imitation. Put him on a motor-car or a locomotive engine, and after a certain time of apprenticeship, they will be able to drive it; but if the machine should get out of order, he will be quite incapable of repairing it, and still less could he make a new one.?
The same mistake had been committed by the Romans in former days, when they had granted the citizenship to barbarians. “An exchange was established between Italy and the Provinces. Italy sent her sons to die in distant lands and received in compensation millions of slaves. Of these, some were attached to the land, cultivated it, and soon enriched it with their bones; others, crowded together in the towns, atten-tive to the vices of a master, were often freed by him and became citizens. Little by little the sons of freed men came to be in sole possession of the city, composed the Roman people, and under this name gave laws to the world. From the time of the Gracchi, they alone nearly filled the Forum. Thus, a new people succeeded to the Roman people, absent or destroyed.”
‘Islam was not a torch, as has been claimed, but an extinguisher. Conceived in a barbarous brain for the use of a barbarous people, it was-and it remains-incapable of adapting itself to civiliza?tion. Wherever it has dominated, it has broken the impulse towards progress and checked the evolution of society.’
Servier is clear about the danger of the Musulman and was deeply concerned that France should not allow the Musulman to gain a foothold. It was directed to the elite, the bureaucrats, a warning. I’ll have a Word doc for download shortly.
Check it out, tell anyone defending what is happening to Paris as “the government’s fault” what Servier said 80 years ago. It’s their fault alright. Not for neglect of the religion of molotov cocktails and arson spree ‘youths’, but for letting them in.

I knew it the second I saw the today show calling them “pirates”. When was the last time there was an attack by pirates?!? Maybe pirates would steal cargo but to just start shooting at a ship is called TERRORISM. They had no financial motives, the way that pirates would. So silly; everyone sees the truth on this one, even liberals that I know.

Actually in the Asian seas (Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Horn of Africa and north and south of it), piracy is a real problem. There were over 400 pirate attacks, some taking hostages for ransom. At this time there are currently 77 hostages from commercial ships. Cruises very rare but whether the intent was terrorism or piracy (getting booty), the men are Muslims, and all three (ransom hostages, taking booty and terrorism) are condoned by the Qur’an.

They should have rammed them Butt Pirates.

“‘Islam was not a torch, as has been claimed, but an extinguisher. Conceived in a barbarous brain for the use of a barbarous people, it was-and it remains-incapable of adapting itself to civilization. Wherever it has dominated, it has broken the impulse towards progress and checked the evolution of society.’”
Absolutely brilliant, cogent, and prescient.
This is what Winston Churchill said about Islam:
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute propertyãeither as a child, a wife, or a concubineãmust delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of scienceãthe science against which it had vainly struggledãthe civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”
