Why Do They Hate Us? Apparently, It’s The Ice Cream
“THE fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim.”
The man claimed the design resembled the Arabic inscription for Allah, and branded it sacrilegious, threatening a “jihad”.
…The offending lid was spotted in a branch in Park Royal last week by business development manager Rashad Akhtar, 27, of High Wycombe.
He was not satisfied by the decision to withdraw the cones and has called on Muslims to boycott Burger King. He said: “This is my jihad. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims.”
You have all these leftists who hyperventilate over why psychopathic Islamo-Fascists like Osama Bin Laden hate us, as if there must be some completely logical reason for it. Meanwhile, you have a loopy Isamist wacko in Britain threatening jihad because a lid on an ice cream cone bears an incredibly vague resemblance to the Arabic inscription for Allah.
That should be an eye opener for some people — of course, people’s eyes should have been opened a long time ago.
Why do I say that?
Because when it comes to home grown lunatics like Timothy McVeigh, Eric Rudolph, or Ted Kaczynski, almost no one ties themselves up in knots wondering if they were justified or had a point. But along comes Bin Laden, Zarqawi and their “splodey dope” army of Al-Qaeda malcontents and you suddenly have anti-war leftists trying to pin the blame on the United States for their endless list of grievances, some of which stretch back all the way to the Crusades.
The reality is that what we’re doing in Iraq and Afghanistan is every bit as noble and right as what the Greatest Generation did in Germany, Japan, and Korea and the enemies we’re fighting are every bit as wrong. Germany, Japan, and North Korea hated us, too, but back then, Americans didn’t sit around wringing their hands with worry about the feelings of the enemies who wanted us dead. We’d be a better country today if more Americans looked at things that way.
