In the course of an email-discussion about American suicidal idiocy that allows Muslims in the military, Gudrun Eussner writes (and I translate):
During WWII, the Americans interned even perfectly loyal Japanese and Germans because of their ancestry. I recently saw a feature about German-Americans who are still fighting for their only too belated rehabilitation.I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal… (Barack Obama)
Did you see that "major" in the shop, clad in djellaba, white cap, the lot? In a shop at a military base!
Thanks BHO, thanks Dalia Mogahed!
Only waiters bow at the waist. (George V, 1910 -- 1936)
In the mood for another quote?
Five to six million strong, Muslims in America already outnumber Presbyterians, Episcopalians, and Mormons, and they are more numerous than Quakers, Unitarians, Seventh-day Adventists, Mennonites, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Christian Scientists, combined. Many demographers say Islam has overtaken Judaism as the ccountry's second-most commonly practiced religion; others say it is in the passing lane." (Johan Blank, USNEWS on July 20, 1998)
Below is the video to which Gudrun referred, a convenience store surveillance video. It's from CNN and shows army major Nidal Hasan about 7 hours before he murdered 13 people:
What happened today?
At 11:25 AM, the President addresses the House Democratic Caucus – Cannon House Office Building.
At 2:30 PM, the President makes a statement to the press in which he warned the American public against "jumping to conclusions" over the motives of the shooter. Also, he elaborated on health care – Rose Garden.
At 2:45 PM, the President leaves the White House en route to Camp David where he is supposed to play golf – South Lawn.
God help the US of A. Their President who has -- somewhat stumbling -- sworn to do so won't. Notabene that it was political scientist Dr. Gudrun Eussner as well who identified the botched oath as something of greater and more far-reaching consequences, something which Americans, even "conservative" Americans, are either not willing or not able (or both) to concede.
