An Open Letter to Our Islamofascist Buddies

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | It's not going to work, boys.

I know how much you enjoy blowing up innocent people, people whose only crime is going to work in the morning. I can't imagine how much fun it must be to meet secretly while building bombs and coordinating cold-blooded murder.

I can't imagine the thrill of carefully executing your plan and how the head fellows in your organization — not the unfortunate slobs who wrapped bombs around their torso in exchange for 72 virgins — likely watched the explosions from a safe distance.

"Britain is now burning with fear, terror and panic in its northern, southern, eastern, and western quarters," you posted on one of your Web sites.

That just isn't so, boys. The Brits were calm and orderly and tended to those in need. The only thing they were burning with was anger and resolve. You boys keep thinking your barbarism will weaken us, but it strengthens us. It reminds us how hopefully lost you are and how we must defeat you.

I understand your confusion. You've probably been misunderstanding some of the messages that have been reported on the news — those in which some American "leaders" have stopped attacking the terrorists and instead attacked their president, who is unflinching in his efforts to defeat you.

But what you keep forgetting is that America is a free country. Anyone here is free to speak his or her mind. People can say anything even if it isn't true or even if it is intended to twist or confuse. And some of our "leaders" have been doing just that. They hope to weaken the president with the hopes of winning back political power.

I can see how you could misunderstand that. The irony is that the best thing you could have done was to have NOT launched another attack. If you wanted to weaken our resolve to defeat you, you could have just sat back while America argued with itself, while we forgot how barbaric you really are.

But you blew it again.

This latest bombing reminds us of the way you beheaded Nick Berg, a fun-loving American fellow who did nothing to wrong you, and how you praised your G-d while you murdered him.

It reminds us of the way you took over a school in Chechnya, killing innocent children. And how you blew up the trains just before the Spanish elections. And how you've detonated bombs all over the world on numerous occasions with the hopes of spreading fear and terror, and how you killed thousands in America on 911.

This last act in London was just as horrific as your past work. I read the reports of walls covered with blood, of body parts spread about the twisted steel. That is your signature, isn't it. Well it's a dumb signature.

The truth of the matter is that you fellows aren't very smart. You had a nice host country in Afghanistan — you were free to train terrorists and foment your hatred — but then you attacked America on 911. You expected us to cower, but you got the opposite. You've been on the run ever since.

And just as America was turning on itself — just as Democratic senators and others have had some success clouding what the war on terror is really about and making Bush and the Republicans the bad guys — you go and strike again, which has caused America to come back to its senses again.

I think it is because you are a bunch of narcissists. You suffer from the worst of human sin and weakness, while wrapping yourselves in the cloak of your religion. You are so lost in yourselves, you actually believe G-d is on your side as you slaughter the innocent.

That is why you keep miscalculating, you nitwits, and thanks to your miscalculations, you have strengthened our resolve just when we needed a jolt.

That's why it's not going to work, boys.
