Gee, I wonder what kind of terrorists they are: “Gunmen who are said to be holding more than 100 hostages in a siege on a Mali hotel Friday reportedly are forcing their captives to recite verses from the Koran or face death.” Of course, said terrorists’ habit of shouting “Allahu akbar!” as they attack something is usually diagnostic. It’s also an indication that the Left’s weird habit of not being able to say ‘radical Islam’ – no, really: Continue reading Terrorist capture hotel in Mali; over 100 hostages.
PS: No, offensive is constantly being subjected to a mass hysterical – and quite baseless – accusation by people who I am morbidly are at least half-projecting.

In a recent Al-Jazeerah interview, Richard Dawkins was asked his views on God. He argued that the god of “the Old Testament” is “hideous” and “a monster”, and reiterated his claim from The God Delusion that the God of the Torah is the most unpleasant character “in fiction”.
As you can see, Dawkins has no trouble attacking the Hebrew God in a most direct and uncompromising manner. No atheist wallflower he.

If you don’t feel like clicking the link, it goes like this: if you’re going to decide that sufficient levels of hanging with Grover Norquist is a troubling sign of dhimmitude, then – due to the influence of ATR – you’re going to inevitably end up supporting… Jon Huntsman, who is the only Republican candidate of the bunch who won’t sign Grover’s tax pledge*.
I suspect that this would generally be considered a suboptimal result by the target demographic in question.
Anyway, there are times when I enjoy posting stuff, and there are times when I feel wearily obligated to post stuff. The latter applies in this case; honestly, Ace has better things to do than this, and frankly so do I. Which is why this is going in RedHot in RS, despite the fact that Ace wrote a crackerjack post here…
*Link goes to Ace because Crooks & Liars doesn’t deserve the traffic. By the way: if C&L loves you as a candidate, then you’ve done something horribly, horribly wrong.
1). What do we know about this guy? Or when it was made?
2). If we had listened to Obama in 2006, this guy would probably be dead right now.
3). Not In Your Name, antiwar movement.
