If there were another Islamic Jihad attack, the NY Times would headline “Oh Dear, new man-made disaster stresses Muslims for fear of backlash!” (Not a word about who mounted the attack or even a mention of the lives of Americans lost!)
The sub-articles would be stories of police being deployed around Mosques, and interviews of Imams telling one and all that “Islam doesn’t condone the killing of innocent civilians!” and that “Islam had nothing to do with it! Just more victimized young men shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ “!
Of course, what the Imams are purposefully omitting is this: once the Nation has been invited to Islam (and we were by Osama Bin Laden in November 1998), and if the Nation REFUSES, then no one is “innocent”!
The Obama Administration’s response to the attack would be to hold hearings to investigate the “intelligence failure”, crucify a few scapegoats, and that would be it.
