Here’s why I think the Obama-bots disposed of bin Laden’s body so quickly: because they were so paralyzed by multiculturalism, all they could think of was the Islamic imperative to bury the body within 24 hours. That’s it. I don’t think they thought beyond PC.
Here’s the problem: My husband got his hair cut today. The hairdresser is quite an ordinary lady, by which I mean she’s not very politically aware. Politics and current events are “out there” somewhere. Her life is children, work, bills, etc. She told him that bin Laden is not dead. Instead, the complete absence of either a body or death photos is because the SEALs kidnapped bin Laden and are keeping him prisoner somewhere. And so conspiracy theories are born.
Had the administration held onto the body so that major media outlets (including al Jazeera and the BBC, neither of which is a friend to America) could have sent representatives to confirm bin Laden’s death, conspiracies would have died a’ borning. Then, with witnesses at their shoulders, the administration types could have interred bin Laden’s body, somewhat belatedly, but in accordance with Islamic law — not out of respect to the man, but out of respect to the religion. (Although if I was among the billions of decent human beings who also happen to be Muslims, I would be offended to have my faith stamped on his body. Better by far to treat the body with respect, because we’re not pagans or barbarians, but to get rid of it quietly.)
Truly, the administration could not have made a more dreadful hash of things.
UPDATE: Andrew Bostom reveals how mean-spirited the proper Muslim burial ceremony is with respect to Christians and Jews. Is there any other religion that feels the need, as part of its last rites, to denigrate other religions and races?
