I too am outraged by what Roger Ailes said about Muslims in the new World Trade Center

New World Trade CenterAll of the predictable people are expressing predictable outrage about the revelation that Roger Ailes once proposed what he thought was a clever way to keep the new World Trade Center from being the target of another Islamist terrorist attack.  What he allegedly said was, “We should fill the last ten floors with Muslims so they never do it again.”

I too am outraged.

Honestly!  How can someone be so naive?  No matter where you look in the Middle East and Africa, Muslims are busy killing each other.  Syria is the hot spot now, but between racist Islamic killings (the Sudan), Sunni v. Shia Muslim killings (most of the Muslim world), politically inspired Muslim killings (Egypt), and Iran’s willingness to nuke Israel despite the Muslim holocaust that would result, it’s pretty darn clear that Muslims have no compunction about killing each other.

Indeed, one could credibly argue that filling the last ten floors with Muslims would make the new World Trade Center a more enticing target, depending on the terrorist.  Any future attack could be a delightful twofer:  killing Americans and killing the “wrong” kind of Muslims.

So, yes, I’m offended.  Ailes said something stupid and, moreover, something stupid that had the added benefit of creating a sweet target for the Left’s perpetual outrage.

    You have to be very careful.  You couldn’t have Winkies on the top ten floors, the Gillikins and Quadlings would try to kill them; and of course the Winkies themselves would cheerfully bomb Munchkins.  The Winkies would also not hesitate to go after ten floors of Qaudlings, and if the Gillikins got a clear shot at Quadlings there’s little doubt they’d employ nuclear weapons.  You have to be very careful with this stuff.  Ailes just wasn’t thinking it through.

    Ailes obviously is still one insight away from understanding Islam. Book is right to say that jihadists would gladly kill a skyscraper full of Muslims, not only because it would rid the world of heretics who consort with the Great Satan, but also because the terrorists could crow that Jews forced to Muslims to those upper floors knowing that the tower might be attacked!
    Once you understand the perversity of the religion, you refrain from making remarks that may seem sly and humorous to sane people, but just give true believers ideas.

    Being a fan of distillates, my thinking about the joys of Islam comes down to several important ideas,
    1) As Fouad Ajami has written, and in much agreement with our authoress’ assessment, those are the lands of “I against my brother; my brother and I against our cousin; and my cousin, my brother, and I against the stranger”, with the good old USofA always being the stranger waiting, cow-like (or should that be sheep-like) to be milked or slaughtered.
    2)  Islam is the millstone.  If your plan doesn’t include constraining, undermining, or eradicating Islam, you don’t have a plan.  What you have is a hope.
    3)  Islam, at its core, is the globalization of 7th Century (A.D., if I may) Arab culture under a thin veneer of religion.  If that’s where you think you need to be, jump right in.

    What in the hell are the Zombies getting on about now? Last time I checked, they were saying if Bush’s daughters were sent to a war zone, there wouldn’t be a war because they’d get kicked in the teeth when the daughters die in war.
