Compare & Contrast

Anti-abortion terrorist Randall Terry holds forth about the Scott Roeder trial at his usual fire-and-brimstone venue, the “Christian” Newswire:

“When the rule of law and the law of blood clash, such as in George Tiller’s death, we must not pretend that there is no connection between Mr. Tiller’s shedding of innocent blood and Scott Roeder’s act of violence against him. There is sowing; there is reaping.”

Now is the time at UOH when we juxtapose!:

“Obama has followed the footsteps of his predecessor in increasing animosity toward Muslims and increasing enemy fighters and establishing long-term wars,” the recording said. “So the American people should get ready to reap the fruits of what the leaders of the White House have planted throughout the coming years and decades.”

The magnitude might be greater, but the sentiments are exactly the same.

    Good morrow, all!
    So, now, we can blame Obama for causing greater terrorism by maintaining the policies that started the animosity between the Muslims and the Western World.
    How quickly we forget — the whole Them Vs Us started a long, LONG time ago, about the time Pope Alexander II thought that marching eastward, and killing Muslims (and another other non-Catholic types, like Jews, Orthodox Christians, pagan Slavs, Gypsies, tramps and thieves…catchy song title) would be a cool way to earn one’s way into Heaven (umm…didn’t the other side say much the same thing…nah, I musta heard that wrong, I’m sure) For about 200 years, Crusaders rode their horses, swung their swords, raped, pillaged and burned (in that order) their way through the Middle East, thus endearing themselves to multiple future generations of grateful and welcoming followers of the Prophet.
    So, why is Jihad such a surprise to us? Or, more correctly, to those who have forgotten how it all started? Can you say, “Duh!”
    Any attempt on Obama’s part to end this cycle of escalation and retribution is like Canute trying to stop the incoming tide. If I remember correctly, it wasn’t Canute’s idea to do that, it was his way of showing his sycophantic courtiers that there were things that a king simply could not do.
    Obama would probably like to be able to stem the incoming tide of escalation and retribution. I think he understands that there are things that a President simply cannot do.

    CTZen – No doubt, there’s a history. But I sometimes wonder if it would mean so much if so many Muslim countries weren’t authoritarian theocracies, or if the Palestine/Israel situation was resolved to everyone’s satisfaction. (If it even could be, at this point.)

    Good morrow, all!
    Mohammed was never big on democracy at the best of times. You toed the line, or you lost yer head, those were yer choices. Interesting that Islam had a more advanced civilization, with greater understanding of sciences and philosophy, than the Crusaders. OTOH, that creeping contagion of democracy, you now, what with those pesky American and French Revolutions and such, never caught on with the Turks, the Egyptians, the Arabs, the Farsi or the Moguls. The cultures of those lands are tied in so deeply and broadly with their religion, that the State exists to enforce the tenets of their Faith.
    So, do we enlightened Westerners understand any of this?
    Yeah, right. – CTZen
