From the London Times:
The device, which failed to detonate, was left near the offices of Viacom, which owns the irreverent cartoon series.
Last month postings on an Islamic website warned the creators of South Park - Matt Stone and Trey Parker - that they could face violent reprisals after an episode of the show featured Mohammed in a bear suit.
A posting on the website of a US-based group called Revolution Muslim warned Stone and Parker that they would “probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh”, the Dutch film-maker who was murdered in 2004 by a Muslim angered by his film about Muslim women.
Images of the Prophet are strictly forbidden in Islam, and Comedy Central, which broadcasts South Park, has banned Stone and Parker from depicting Mohammed in the past. In 2006 the network stopped them from featuring Mohammed in an episode which followed worldwide protests over a caricature of the Prophet by a Danish cartoonist.
Notice the dumbass Times of London refers to Mohammy, the scribbler of the Krayon, as "the Prophet".
Do they refer to Jesus Christ as the Messiah and the Son of the Living God?
Maybe I ought to bomb something, so they will.
The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the failed car bomb attack in Times Square in New York City.
In 1 minute video allegedly released by the Pakistani Taliban, the group says the attack is revenge for the death of its leader Baitullah Mehsud and the recent killings of the top leaders of al-Qaida in Iraq. Images of the slain militants are shown as an unidentified voice recites the message. English subtitles are at the bottom of the screen.
The video was uncovered Sunday by the U.S.-based SITE intelligence Group, which monitors militant websites.
I think it's silly to care one whit whether this was the act of Pakistani jihadists or local ones or Iraqi ones - and so on.
Jihad is a global ideology, not a national or ethnic one. It arises from an ideology that springs directly and continuously from Mohamed and the Koran and the Hadiths and the Sura - in other words, from the core beliefs of Islam.
Communism was a remains an evil ideology - responsible for millions and millions of deaths and unbelievable amounts of hardships for a century. But not all communists were evil. Many were just dupes. Not all were guilty of crimes against humanity.
So is it with Islam; Islam is an evil ideology - worse than communism in every way. But that DOES NOT MEAN all Muslims are evil.
But there are millions of evil JIHADISTS and millions and millions more Muslims who aid them one way or another.
We have to attack them all. Everywhere.
As long as we fight a half-assed war we prolong the war and make its costs worse.
Appeasement only makes it worse: Viacom's censorship invites more attacks because it send s a clear signal to the enemy that attacking us and threatening us WORKS.
We need to send them a message that it doesn't.
The most powerful way to send it will be the most effective.
YES: I MEAN WE SHOULD BE FIGHTING TOTAL WAR. LIKE FDR AND TRUMAN DID.
That's how wars are won.
And that's how PEACE is attained and maintained.
