Murder and Mayhem in Mumbai

The murderous Islamofascist terror attacks in Mumbai should have made it clear to the world, if nothing else has yet done so, that these people are well-organised and well-funded. We are not talking about isolated terrorist cells, but an army. I find it revealing that they targeted Jews and western nationals only. Jews – because the Islamofascists hate Jews more than anyone else; the mass media and official government sources in Muslim countries spew out Jew-hatred on a daily basis. As for the West – has anyone wondered, as I have, why Western countries, (where Muslims are not persecuted but, on the contrary, treated with a mind-boggling tolerance that includes a willingness, as in the UK, to actually consider incorporating "some aspects of Sharia law" as the Archbishop of Canterbury put it, into the local legal system) are targeted, but countries such as China, where Muslims are actively persecuted (as are Christians, for that matter and as no doubt would be Jews, if there were any Jews in China) are apparently immune to Islamofascist terror attacks? I suspect the reason is that the West is perceived by the Jihadists as weak. I have little doubt that while the immediate reaction of those countries whose nationals were butchered has been one of indignation and anger, within weeks, they will be asking themselves (as did the British, shortly after the July 7th attacks): "What did we do wrong? How have we sinned against the Muslims? What can we do to make amends? How can we abase ourselves so as to earn their forgiveness?"
Or maybe: "What is needed is dialogue with the Muslim world" (Obama-style).
Perhaps they need to be reminded – it takes two to tango.
I am reminded of a comic sketch by the late Israeli comedian, Shaike Ophir, in which he plays an Arab schoolteacher, trying to teach his class about the Shakespeare play, Hamlet: "Dialogue, my dear Hamid? Yes, I shall explain. Dialogue is exactly like monologue, except that in the case of monologue, it is one person talking to himself. Dialogue – two persons talking to themselves."

About Shimona from the Palace

Born in London, the UK, I came on Aliyah in my teens and now live in Jerusalem, where I practice law. I am a firm believer in the words of Albert Schweitzer: "There are two means of refuge from the sorrows of this world - Music and Cats." To that, you can add Literature. To curl up on the sofa with a good book, a cat at one's feet and another one on one's lap, with a classical symphony or concerto in the background - what more can a person ask for?

    "Opportunity of freedom…." it\’s a simple dream !!! because now, it\’s dangerous, and every where in the world… It\’s so difficult for everybody to be free, when in the world there is a part of poeple that whant to kill the others… not because of something… simply because they whant to kill, and kill, and kill… of cause, for them, it\’s better to kill jews, but they kill every one they find,…they are not "ben Adam"… they are the sons of satan… no freedom for them… Pati

    No word to express our feelings , no word to express our sadness after those barbarian murders. Now terrorism has changed , now they are well organized , they know how to localize their targets , they are a threat for all the countries , they can attack everywhere . They don t understand nothing except killing. I think Mumbay is not the last bomb attack , unfortunately .Myri

    Alors, on prie très très fort pour que ce soit la dernière…. trop horrible… Il ne peuvent comprendre quoi que ce soit;.. ce sont des fous, assoiffés de sang… les enfants du diable… ils ne sont pas humains…. Nous oui, alors, on prie pour que tout ce qu\’il essayent de faire échoue tout le temps. Dieu voit tout. Ils finiront pas arrêter ce massacre, tôt ou tard. Machia\’h viendra et ce sera la fin des massacres. Pati
