Victim was accused of directing US drones targeting terrorists
An Al-Qaeda-affiliated group in Yemen crucified an alleged US spy, and posted a video of the crucifixion on YouTube, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) said on Wednesday...
The victim was crucified on an electric pylon in south Yemen’s Abyan province.
A sign above the man’s head showed the flag of the Al-Qaeda-linked group and text from verse 5:33 of the Koran: “The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off from opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.”
So the guy was not just crucified, but he was crucified in the name of Allah.
Yet the progressive politically correct crowd would have us believe that all cultures, and all peoples the world over, are essentially the same and that criticism of another culture, as Romney found out, brings the incessant chanting of "racism! racism!"
Of course, this is yet another double standard that they hold Israel to because Israel's critics are constantly castigating Israeli culture. If some Jewish Israeli kids beat the crap out of an Arab Israeli kid they take it to mean that Israeli (Jewish) culture is racist and demeaned. It is thus fine and dandy to drag Israeli-Jewish culture through the mud, but one must never breath a word about Arab or Muslim cultures because that would be "racist" and "Islamophobic."
This despite the fact that criticizing culture is not the same as criticizing "race." Race, although an outmoded notion, represents something essential, unalterable, and biologically constituted. Cultures on the other hand are malleable and constantly shifting.
And, no, they are not all the same.
They crucified the poor bastard, for G-d's sake.
I post this with some reluctance, but here is a video of the alleged US spy crucified. If you go to the link above you will see that the image on the Times of Israel website is identical to what we see below.
And, excuse me, I am supposed to believe that American Evangelicals are as much of a problem as genocidal Jihadis? Anyone who believes this just has no sense of proportion... or perhaps just no common sense, period... or just no sense of basic human decency, I think.
