“The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.”
For all you stylin’ female jihadis, there’s a new mag published by your friends at al-Qaeda that’s tailor-made for light reading while you’re waiting to blow up your bus:
Oops. Wrong tabloid. Here’s the one for fashionable jihadas who want beauty beneath their burqas when they press that detonator:
[...] A trailer for the next issue promises tips on skin care – and how to wage electronic jihad.

Two more killed, dozens injured in third day of Afghan protests; Karzai calls for U.S. Congress to prevent future Qur’an burnings (Jihad Watch)
Suppress free speech in your country, because we can’t (won’t) control ourselves in ours.
[...] At the heart of Afghan’s instability is a self-righteous, “honor”-obsessed lack of self control on the individual and small community level. There can be no stable society where someone always has to die for something — most of all, for insufficient Sharia in government, for the aim of jihad in all its forms is the imposition of Islamic law.
Harry Reid & Lindsey Graham: Afghanistan Riots Might Be Due to Too Many Freedoms in the US… or Something (Michelle Malkin)
If somebody, say, puts a crucifix in a jar of urine and calls it “art,” some on Capitol Hill not only won’t press for hearings, but they might even give it federal funding in spite of how many Christians it might offend. But in this instance free speech seems to be subjective:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told CBS’s Bob Schieffer on Sunday that some members of Congress were considering some kind of action in response to the Florida Quran burning that sparked a murderous riot at a United Nations complex in Afghanistan and other mayhem.
“I wish we could find a way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we’re in a war. During World War II, we had limits on what you could say if it would inspire the enemy.–Lindsey Grahamnesty
[...] People were murdered in Afghanistan and members of Congress are pondering how to clamp down on somebody who burned a book in Florida. Now that’s problem solving, DC-style.
Deplorable, these psychotic Islamic responses to any and all real or imagined slights to their best-selling instruction manual (The Qu’ran ©The Prophet Muhammad 610 C.E.). Still, the Muslim mob–unlike the hand-wringing species of poltroon native to our own District of Columbia–are at least ready to fight for their principles, loopy as they are. The only things for which whimpering Senatorial slugs like Reid and Grahamnesty are willing to do battle are their own re-elections.
