In the same manner in which one cannot be half pregnant (at least as far as I know…but then again… what you think you know is not always what is…facts are fungible…even when the “science is settled” ) one cannot be half a terrorist.
So either you blow up, shoot, or otherwise kill as many as you can set your sights on, or you don’t. This is not rocket science, even though projectiles are often used as instruments of terror.
In this regard, some of this blog’s commentaries relate to the Orwellian doublespeak permeating, distorting and thus silencing, western discourse.
In fact, the delusions embedded within Israel’s leftist thought police has been deadly to our health. Leftists world over hold steadfast (like drowning people clinging to a life raft ) to their same failed ideology, regardless of how many dead bodies they have to climb over.

With the above in mind, I was not at all surprised – though thoroughly repulsed – by the following report at World Net Daily ‘Do Politics Define ‘Domestic Terrorists’? -
“It only took hours following the shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin by a white male for authorities to announce the event could possibly be domestic terrorism, in sharp contrast to attacks by Muslims where the government quickly put great distance from such labels.
“The shooting, which killed six, was at the Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis., an hour before services were scheduled to begin last weekend. The alleged shooter, Wade Michael Page, who himself died, was a 40-year-old Army veteran and suspected white supremacist.”
“Less than 24 hours after the shooting, Oak Creek police chief John Edwards said authorities were treating the attack as a domestic terrorist incident.”
“While the incident appears to fall under the definition of domestic terrorism, which is partly defined by the Patriot Act as a dangerous action intended to intimidate a ‘civilian population,” an expert on Islam says the speed by which the designation was made stands in sharp contrast to when Muslims have carried out similar attacks.”
“This is part of a pattern by the Obama administration where they are anxious to label violent attacks by non-Muslims as domestic terrorism while whitewashing similar acts when they are committed by Muslims,” Robert Spencer, founder of Jihad Watch said.
“By being quick to say it was politically motivated it is designed to downplay the reality of jihad terrorist while exaggerating non-Muslim terrorist acts.”
“Spencer has received death threats himself from Muslims after recently publishing his book “Did Muhammad Exist?”
“When Nidal Hassan opened fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, killing 13, while allegedly shouting “Allahu Akbar,” officials including President Obama immediately came out saying people should not jump to conclusions about the incident. Authorities later said there was no evidence domestic terrorism was involved, but rather the event was a simple case of workplace violence.”

Now for some real tutelage, and from one of the masters in this area of knowledge. Some readers are familiar with the most trenchant commentary at this blog, ‘Islam & Blood’. It brings Professor Eidelberg’s world class expertise to the forefront -
Obamagnosis: A Sickness Unto Death
Prof. Paul Eidelberg, President
The Israel-America Renaissance Institute
”A Muslim extremist shoots up a U.S. military base and it’s called “workplace violence.” It’s called “workplace violence” by those suffering from an extreme case of “agnosis,” a mental or moral inability to recognize certain human acts as downright evil. Since this ignorance is quite prevalent in the pronouncements and policies of the Obama Administration, we may reasonably say his Administration is suffering from “Obamagnosis.” Let’s see where this agnosis leads us, beginning on the surface and proceeding step-by-step to the underlying and insidious cause of this mental and moral disorder.”
“If a Muslim employee of the House of Representatives or of the Senate—or better yet, of the White House—was to shoot up some Representatives or some Senators or members of the President’s staff—Aha! This would be nothing more than “workplace violence” or manifestations of Obamagnosis! Now let’s probe more deeply.”
“Obamagnosis is not merely a diagnosis of the flawed human being in the White House. Since many millions of Americans voted for this man in the 2008 presidential election, Obamagnosis describes a malady of national scope and significance. These Americans voted for this man even though he displayed not only unparalleled political ignorance and inexperience, but also utter contempt for what Americans represent as a nation but also the price Americans have paid in blood and treasure defending freedom and human dignity against Nazi and Soviet tyranny.”
“Even while campaigning for the Presidency, this man had the audacity as well as the mental vacuity or agnosis to disparage America’s most revered foundational documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Federal Constitution. Despite his agnosis, which is unparalleled in the history of democratic politics, many millions of Americans dignified this stranger with their votes. What a travesty of American Exceptionalism! But what is the root cause of this decadence, of this sickness unto death called “Obamagnosis”?
“To begin with, we must ask, “Who are the educators of the many millions of Americans who have been rendered so morally and intellectually vacuous by Obamagnosis that a Muslim terrorist attack on a U.S. military base can be called “working place violence” without causing a national uproar? Can it be the legions of academics who, for more than 100 years, have dominated American colleges and universities? Or am I am painting with too broad a brush?”
“I know it’s not de rigueur to name names, but America’s existential situation compels me to do so. The academics I am alluding to comprise the multitude of “post-American” intellectuals who, influenced by the crypto-Marxism and historical relativism exemplified in the 1913 publications of Charles Beard and Carl Becker—the former on the Constitution, the latter on the Declaration—rendered those once venerable foundational documents of the American Republic intellectually obsolete. Indeed, decade after decade they have been relegated to the trash heap of history. As a consequence, the political and spiritual ideas articulated in these documents were degraded or were nothing to be very proud of let alone worth fighting and dying for. Today they no longer incite in countless Americans the moral sense and integrity to identify and candidly denounce America’s evil and existential enemy—the military ideology that precipitated that Muslim’s terrorist attack on a U.S. military base.”
“Now let us focus on the crypto-Marxism of Charles Beard’s Economic Interpretation of the Constitution of the United States. This book has had so many printings since 1913 that it has become a veritable icon for tens of thousands of American educators—and not only historians and political scientists—who reduce the ideas and statesmanship of America’s Founding Fathers to their economic interests. This crude and simplistic crypto-Marxism took academia by storm. Indeed, it is still cited uncritically by scholars. It seems never to have occurred to these patriotic intellectuals that they were impugning the integrity of America’s greatest statesmen—which does not mean that these extraordinary statesmen should be lionized (but what shall we then say of today’s politicians?).”
“In any event, given the two pervasive and related academic doctrines of crypto-Marxism and historical relativism, I must say in all candor that “higher education” has corrupted generations of American college and university students. And since moral relativism is evident at all levels of American education—most conspicuously in the social sciences and humanities—I contend that this doctrine, more than any other single factor (such as money, skin color, or the ineptitude of John McCain), that enabled Obama to win majority of the votes in the 2008 presidential election.”
“Now, since Americans influenced by moral relativism must be deemed either ignorant or dismissive of the universalism and trans-historical validity of the principles of America’s Declaration of Independence, is it not obvious that what is primarily responsible for this widespread ignorance and indifference is academia?”
“Viewed in this unconventional way, Barack Obama’s victory in the 2008 presidential election should be understood as an “electoral” victory of the cynical and degrading doctrine of moral relativism over its opponent, the magnificent universalism of the Declaration articulated in that document’s humble appreciation of “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” Nor is this all.
“Know well that in the eighteenth century, both in Europe and America, educated people regarded the Laws of Nature as the “Moral Law.” What the Declaration calls the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” may rightly be construed as the American abbreviation of the Seven Noahide Laws of universal morality. This is evident in the writings of some of the Declaration’s most learned signatories such as James Wilson and John Adams. These men, like the Continental Congress that promulgated the Declaration of Independence, were averse to Jefferson’s omission of the name of God and Divine Providence in his initial draft of that document.”
“Finally, contrary to academic opinion—even of scholars of the Straussian school of political science—the natural-cum-moral law doctrine of the Declaration of Independence is rooted not in the political philosophy of John Locke but in the Seven Noahide Laws of the Torah. This may be may confirmed in the writings of Locke’s acquaintance, the greatest Hebraist of the eighteenth century, John Selden, at least one of whose lengthy volumes on the Talmud was in Locke’s library.*
“Summing up, Obamagnosis represents a denial of the natural-cum-moral law. It is precisely this denial that underlies the moral or mental disorder that impels those infected by Obamagnosis—a sickness unto death—to call a Muslim’s shooting up of an U.S. military base “workplace violence.”
Thinkers like Professor Eidelberg ( as well as Dr Martin Sherman ) are rare treasures, yet many are too terrified to hear their prognostications.
Well, too damn bad.
Our civilization is in peril. Closing ones ears and mind is suicidal.
The truth shall set us free !!
