Hat Tip to Bluto at The Jawa Report:
John Feffer, co-director of Foreign Policy in Focus at the radical, pro-Marxist Soros-funded Institute for Policy Studies gives us an “I’m okay, you’re okay” look at suicide bombers.
Feffer’s 3,375 word apologia is summed up in this passage: (His idea of “moral relativism”)
“We have our suicide bombers—we call them heroes. We have our culture of indoctrination—we call it basic training. We kill civilians—we call it collateral damage.”
Who are these holy martyrs to the cause of Western civilization? Well, Will Smith in the movie, I Am Legend. Sure, obviously a movie character blowing himself up to destroy a pack of zombie vampires is the exact equivalent of a devout Muslim youth walking onto an Israeli schoolbus wearing a suicide vest. Feffer also cites WWII-vintage American propaganda flicks (because Hollywood only makes propaganda for our enemies now).
But wait! Feffer has a military example from US history. Two hundred and five years ago a US Navy ship deliberately blew itself and its volunteer crew up trying to inflict damage on enemy vessels in Tripoli. Feffer describes the war against the Barbary Pirates as “America’s first war against Islam.” Forget the piracy, murders, hostage-taking, and demands for tribute.
And that’s all it takes for Feffer to “justify” the 9/11 attacks. The terrorists hit the Pentagon, thus, 9/11 was a military strike, no different from American strikes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In Feffer’s twisted weasel mind Chechnyan Muslim terrorists murdering hundreds of schoolchildren are exactly the same as Predator-launched Hellfire missiles targeting al Qaeda terrorist leaders.
And some, including one of the bloggers who exposed Van Johnson Jones (damn, now Queef Olberdork will call me the Worst Person in the World again), consider the Institute for Policy Studies to be the President’s “idea bank.”
Feffer claims that he’s:
“……not equating soldiers going on suicide missions against other soldiers with terrorists who blow up civilians in a public place. Indeed, these are two distinct categories. And yet much has happened in the history of modern warfare—in which civilians have increasingly become the victims of combat—to blur these distinctions”.
But he excuses Islamic terrorists with ‘the ends justify the means’:
Uniting our suicide attackers and theirs, however, are the reasons behind the missions.
Really? This intellectually bankrupt assclown cannot tell the difference between an act of terrorism—designed to start a war against world democracies in particular—and an act of wartime sacrifice by a U.S. Navy crew.
That’s just Feffer’s way of expressing “one person’s terrorist is another person’s freedom fighter”.
He had to dig pretty deep into history for that contorted suicide bomb analogy. Evidently, there’s not enough modern day Western examples to draw from.
This is got to be the most obscene example of pro-Islamofascist tripe I’ve seen:
The fact is: Were we to end our occupation policies, we would go a long way toward eliminating “their” suicide bombers. But when and how will we end our own cult of martyrdom?
Like our occupation of Germany, Italy, and Japan after WWII?
Just stop fighting on the home turf of enemies who killed almost 3000 people on this soil in the name of their Islamic cause, and they’ll throw down their weapons, put away their homicide bombs, stop planting IEDs, and hold hands and sing Kumbaya.
Newsflash, Feffer: Post war occupation happens when you pick a fight with us and we have to come to where you live and kick your ass.
Let’s make a deal; we’ll get out of the Middle East if they quit their fucking ‘jihad’ and they ALL leave the West. Otherwise, we’ll be forced to rid the planet of this Islamic plague for future generations.
“Their” suicide pilots decided to use planes full of innocent people for Islamic ‘martyrdom’, and intend to wreak the same violence on the rest of Western civilization. I have no problem doing what it takes to stop them and their supporters dead in their tracks.
When I read moral relativisms from douchenozzles like Feffer, I’d love to exchange them all for those killed on 9/11.
How’s that for relativism?
