This same AQ leader is advocating using Pakistani nukes on the US., highlighting the importance of shoring up political, ethnic, and religious fault lines in Pakistan.
And from another part of the globe, a "mainstream" muslim cleric tells us that terror by Islamic extremists will continue unabated until we recognize the supremacy of Islamic law. Is terror really appropriate? I mean, does killing innocent women and children really advance the cause?
"People such as women and children who are not involved in the fight against Muslims should not be killed.
"But the problem is we don't know for sure that the victims weren't involved in the fight against Islam. Even the thought of fighting against Islam is involvement. Everyone that thinks like that is allowed to be killed."
Ah. So that kid in the corner playing with his Tonka toy, he might have been thinking about fighting against Islam, or he might've someday grown up to think about fighting Islam, so he's a legitimate target. And as for his mother, well, refusing to wear the hijab is fighting against Islam, so yeah, she's toast, too.
