Rage Against the Infidel

Rage Boy made an appearance here last September.

Now, Christopher Hitchens writes about the same lovely fellow:

[...] how are we to know what will incite such rage? A caricature published in Copenhagen appears to do it. A crass remark from Josef Ratzinger (leader of an anti-war church) seems to have the same effect. A rumor from Guantanamo will convulse Peshawar, the Muslim press preaches that the Jews brought down the Twin Towers, and a single citation in a British honors list will cause the Iranian state-run press to repeat its claim that the British government—along with the Israelis, of course—paid Salman Rushdie to write The Satanic Verses to begin with. Exactly how is such a mentality to be placated?

That's the problem, isn't it? When one tries to appease irrational and immoral people, Enlightenment Values get butchered.

But, then, one has to first comprehend and admit that such personalities are irrational and immoral -- a big no-no in our multicultural society.

I stand by my Enduring Rage plan; get them angry and keep them angry. I will wager that the human adrenal gland can only take so much activity before it either stops working or bursts into flames.

I go by Mom's "if you keep making that face it will get stuck that way" theory.

This is perhaps a bit off topic, but has anyone read this post at the blog Captain's Quarters ( quoting a report from MIchael Yon's blog ( about Al Queda in Iraq enforcing rules about un-Islamic mixing of vegetables? I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

"Other AQI edicts included beatings for men who refused to grow beards, and corporal punishments for obscene sexual suggestiveness, defined by such “loose” behavior as carrying tomatoes and cucumbers in the same bag"



i want you to write some thing and tell us whats the cure to these Pakistani radicals? What are they or Who are they?

Winston: I see you have gone passed recognizing the problem--you want a solution!

Your question requires a considered response. I'm going to write a four-part series on this matter. (I've planned to do that for some time.) It'll be up in a few months. I'll email you the links.

Classical Liberal: It's in the Quran! "The tomato shall not lay down with the cucumber."

[Moderate Muslim: These Islamists take that literally. The vegetable thing was symbolism for something else...]

Will I burn in hell for eating cucumbers and tomatoes in the same salad?
