In today's New York Times we find a fascinating article, entitled "In the West, a Growing List of Attacks Linked to Extremism".
Whose "extremism" may we ask? Perhaps the Buddists are rioting again over the cartoons depicting the Dalai Lama, by murdering innocents and burning cars in the streets. Or the Mormon extremists beheading those from other religions for drinking liquor or letting their women walk unescorted by a male relative. Oh, perhaps the Amish decided to end it once and for all with those pesky Mennonites. Yeah, that must be it.
We all know who the article focuses on... you guessed it - Islam. Shocking, I know.
The article starts with the recent attacks in Canada and works backward, including such attacks as the beheading in Oklahoma (classified as "workplace violence"), the murder of three at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, the murder of a British soldier on the streets of London, the murder of three French soldiers and three Jewish children and rabbi at a school (two separate attacks), the Fort Hood massacre (another act of "workplace violence"), and a couple of others.
Of course, the terrorism that strikes Jews daily in Israel is not included in this listing. Perhaps it isn't really terrorism when a three month old baby girl is murdered by a Muslim terrorist, completely ignored by the media in the wake of the attacks in Ottawa. Three months old. Jews murdered in their homeland, in Israel, young or old, don't count as terrorism.
While this week we have seen 'lone-wolf' attacks on our police and uniformed soldiers, it is only a matter of time before we will see these kind of attacks on civilians, the same attacks that Israel sees on a regular basis.
I'm glad to see that the New York Times is finally catching on to the dangers of the "extremists" among us - it's just too bad that they can't see the bigger picture... we are at war.
