Was It Really a “Failed” Attack?

By Debbie Schlussel

Maybe people should stop calling Islamic Terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s attack on Northwest Flight 253 a “failed attack,” or an “unsuccessful attack.”

Abdulmutallab may not have taken any lives, but Al-Qaeda (which has come forward to claim credit) and Abdulmutallab seem to have been pretty successful to me.  I think this picture shows just how successful.

Al-Qaeda’s “Failed,” “Unsuccessful” Attack Was Pretty Damned Successful

Instead of profiling people–especially Muslim and Arab people–Americans all over the country missed their flights, missed out on cruises, and had to wait in line for hours, arriving at the airport hours ahead of  flights and throwing out lip gloss, toothpaste, and orange juice. 

So was it really a “failed” attack?  Not really. 

It was actually pretty damn successful.

As a Jew I deny Jesus’s Godliness. Nevertheless, aside from this one point, show me a good Jew and I’ll show you a good Christian. Obviously there remain tons of commonalities even without acknowledging Jesus’s Godliness.

Jesus was not ‘God,’ I think that Christians view Him as the Son of God though he referred to Himself as the Son of Man. Otherwise He was a Jew who was called Rabbi by His followers and those that came to listen to Him in the synagogues and elsewhere when the synagogue could not accomodate the crowd. His parents, followers, teachers were all Jews and He observed and fulfilled ‘the Law.’

Whats up! I simply would like to give a huge thumbs up for the good data you have here on this post. I will likely be coming again to your weblog soon.
