YES, They Are Islamic Terrorists: “Somali Pirates” Seize U.S. Ship; Americans Re-Take

By Debbie Schlussel
For years, I’ve decried–on this site and elsewhere–the use of the term “pirates” in connection with the Somalians who seize ships off the coast of Africa and demand ransom. They are violent, they are Muslim, and they are tied to Al-Qaeda.
And, yes, they are TERRORISTS. Islamic terrorists. You know, the “Religion of Peace.”
Now, they’ve seized a ship with mostly American crew members on board. And maybe now, we’ll actually call them what they are. (By the way, so much for Obama’s butt-kissing of Islam in Europe, this week. Look how the Muslims “repaid” us the compliment.)
Just because they let most people live and accept money for their thuggery instead of lives, doesn’t make them any less terrorist than the ones who murdered 3,000 Americans on 9/11. The ultimate end of their actions is a distinction without a difference from their not so random violence, kidnapping, and threats. It has no relevance to whether or not they are terrorists that they let their victims live.


The pirates centuries ago were largely Berbers–yes, Muslims. They were terrorists then. And they are terrorists now.
I think the American crew being held hostage by them on the Danish-owned Maersk Alabama knows that, which is why they fought back, and according to some stories, have retaken the ship. Americans are tough. As I noted in a previous entry, they wouldn’t just take this sitting down, just as they didn’t respond to the Shoe Bomber, Muslim Abdul Raheem a/k/a Richard Reid, sitting down, and beat him down like he deserved on the plane.
Regardless of whether Americans retook the ship from Muslim terrorists also known by the soft mainstream media euphemism, “pirates,” the fact remains: the Somalians who invaded this ship and all others are Islamic terrorists.
Nothing less.
By the way, back in 2005 when I first decried the ridiculous epithets used for these Islamic terrorists on the sea, the leader of the “Somalian pirates” was Mohamed Abdi Hassan. Hmmm . . . sounds very Anglo-Christian to me. How ’bout you?
The moment we actually call things what they are, we’ll actually take a big step toward re-taking our own ship a/k/a America, which we’re losing fast.

I hope “in the water” means “bloated and in the water”. They are terrorists and should be treated as such. As you say Debbie, Americans took this ship back now is the time to start taking our country back!

Berber are not necessarily Muslim (there are many Jews who are also considered as Berber). In fact, the Berber fought the invasion of Islam into North Africa and in loosing were forced to convert. Until today they feel they are first Berber and only second Muslims. Egyptian tend to feel the same way. In any event, they were never Pirates. Unfortunately, very little of North African history is known to American readers and even less to Muslims there.

We should treat these cretins the way Jefferson did and go after them. Then we need to go after the rest of the Islamofacists the same way. Unfortunately we have Hussein as our commander in chief. We need a Winston Churchill.
NormanF – I believe it is already too late to recite “BIRCAS HACHAMMAH”, and from what I read there is a disagreement on whether or not women are obligated.

Let’s see if the MSM will give the crew a hero’s welcome? These a-hole terrorists/pirates should be blown out of the water.

i_am, one can give thanks to G-d twice in a lifetime for the creation of the world. The next Blessing Of The Creation won’t occur again until April 4, 2037.

I only posted what I did because that is what I had learned. Also what do you mean by “one can give thanks to G-d twice”? I did this 28 years ago when I was 19, I did it my second time today and I hope to do it several more times.
And if you should see this before Yom Tov starts, have a Chag Kasher v’Sameach!

Ready, get set because Amnesty-2009 OBAMA style is about to get inserted. Squeeze your cheeks…

You’re right they are terrorists, and we do have to take back our own ship. We need to start by getting rid of the muslim terrorist that lives in the White House. Chancellor Obama is NOT a natural born American Citizen, and I doubt he is a citizen at all. He has shown in his tour of his REAL homeland, that he will not properly represent America’s interest, and he must be removed from office.
The only person dumber than Obama are the morons who voted for him.

Obama and his ministers of deceit never refer to anything using its true meaning. They are purveyors of Newspeek, Orwell’s definition of redefining the meaning of words to intimidate, indoctrinate and brainwash.
You can’t succeed in evil unless you call it another name.
