ROSCOE'S Weak-End Review

Religion of peace--or organized crime?

Our Israeli friend Yaakov Kirschen over at Dry Bones Blog must be a good carpenter, the way he keeps nailing it. This time he makes a thought-provoking point about Islam and crime gangs, including this from an essay about gang-bangers:

In the gang world, no challenge, assault or diss (act of disrespect) can go unanswered since being a gang member is all about holding onto respect and reputation (rep). When a diss occurs to a gang by a rival, only revenge will satisfy the offended gang. To them, revenge shows the world (mostly themselves, really), that their rep is intact and is to be respected. Gang history teaches us that revenge will be in the form of a bloody beating, a bullet-spray drive-by or even a bombing.

Which, of course, suggests a strategy, does it not? Forget freedom of religion. Radical Islam is organized criminal activity and ought to be treated as such--RICO, forfeiture of property and holdings, etc.

Noam who?

Maybe you wondered who this Noam Chomsky guy was that Hugo Chavez was ballyhooing last week at the United Nations. You know if he's a friend of Hugo, he must be bad news. And you'd be right. If people are judged by the company they keep, old Noam, the left-wing, America-bashing professor, anti-war activist and friend of Hezbollah, is right up there with Hassan Nasrallah and Cindy Sheehan.

That's right. Chomsky may be a brilliant linguist, but he's a lousy human being. Did you catch Nasrallah, the Hezbollah coward, coming out of hiding in Lebanon now that hostilities are over to declare victory and vow never to disarm? Well, that's Chomsky's old buddy & pal.

Check it out here and here.

Muslims supporting congressional hopeful

With Muslims all over the country rallying to his cause and ponying up cash contributions, the chances are very good for America to get its first Muslim congressman. He's Keith Ellison of Minneapolis, but we don't expect him to be alone for long. No, this is just the beginning.

We look at what's happening in Europe and smugly think, "It can't happen here." And that kind of thinking is the very thing that will make it possible for it to happen here.
