Possible pope link to nun's death
You cannot possibly link the nun's death to Islamic radicals in a headline, can you? @#(*&ing western journalists.
Gunmen shot and killed an Italian nun at a children's hospital in Mogadishu on Sunday in an attack that drew immediate speculation of links to Muslim anger over the pope's recent remarks on Islam.
Muslim anger. Anger is over at DailyKos. Insane rage is what these disciples of the Religion of Peace are displaying. And Somalia is a hotbed of that peace:
The assassinations were a blow to Mogadishu's new Islamist rulers' attempt to prove they have pacified one of the world's most lawless cities since chasing out warlords in June.
Borne out of local courts practicing strict sharia law, the Islamist movement in June seized Mogadishu from U.S.-backed warlords who had run it for the past 15 years.
The Islamists have brought some order to the capital, which was awash with guns and where assassinations were common. But the nun's death -- and the June killing of a Swedish cameraman -- will damage their claim Mogadishu is now safe for foreigners.
Critics of the Islamists say they harbor al Qaeda-linked extremists in their ranks. The top Islamist leader, hardline cleric Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys, is on U.S. and U.N. lists of people accused of links to terrorism.
The Islamists deny that, saying the West does not understand them and is succumbing to U.S. propaganda.
Oh no, my peaceful friends, we understand you quite well at this juncture. The problem is, now, how to deal with you and the peace that you bring to the world. At least, that's what our western journalists tell us. And if we do not understand you and your peace, it is the fault of the Pope.
