Every man feels instinctively that all the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action.
- James Lowell, American Poet, Critic and Editor (1819-1891)
Another horrific act of Islamic terror, this time it came in the form of two men caught on camera savagely butchering an unarmed British soldier and yelling, “Allah akbar”.
As horrible as this story is, it could have been worse. Imagine if this had happened in America, where fourteen soldiers killed by an avowed Muslim yelling “Allah Akbar” was described as workplace violence by the Obama administration, going so far as to not give a single mention to the words “Muslim” or “Islam” in their entire 86-page report on the Fort Hood massacre.
As sickening as this latest act of Islamic terror is, at least it didn’t happen in an America where the media would certanly have embarrassed themselves once again by falsely accusing the tea party before any of the facts were in.
Thank God this didn’t happen in America, for at least we don’t have to listen to the insanity of a gun grabber calling for the repeal of the 2nd amendment after an attack that involved no guns, just as we heard in the wake of the Boston Bombing.
Nothing can diminish the horror of an unarmed soldier being butchered in broad daylight on the street in London, but thank God this didn’t happen in America or we might have to listen to Obama and the Secretary of State spewing lies in front of the coffin of the dead soldier, trying to blame the latest attack on some “awful Internet video.”
