Islamic youth organisations that were not part of Prime Minister John Howard’s summit yesterday say they have been working against extremism behind the scenes.
They have chosen a date for a planned day of action – September 11.
The group says it wants to try to change the date’s association with extreme Islamic violence, and to highlight how mainstream Muslims have become victims of prejudice and bias.
Granted, 9/11 is rather obvious, but it should be noted that there is no shortage of anniversaries of bloody radical Islamist terror strikes. Methinks these folks are moving too slowly, and that by years.
Casey Sheehan’s Sergeant asked for volunteers. Sheehan had just returned from Mass. After Sheehan volunteered once, the Sergeant asked Sheehan again if he wanted to go on the mission. According to many reports (and according to his own mother), Casey responded, “Where my Chief goes, I go.”
Blackfive pays tribute to a fallen soldier who deserves far more attention for far better reasons than his own mother, the media’s story of the month and the anti-war movement’s latest hope to undercut our current military efforts.
The four terrorists who killed 56 people in London on July 7 triggered the bombs themselves by pressing a device similar to a button, senior police sources have told the Guardian.
The discovery scotches the theory that the four British-born men may have been duped into carrying the rucksack bombs on to three crowded tube trains and one bus, unaware they were going to explode.
This is an interesting development — the London bombers apparently were not duped as some had theorized. This only should compound European fear of the true danger of the radical Islamist threat in its midst. Ah, but will it?
Blogs of War readers may be interested in participating in a new Military History Wiki.
Not much of a quote there, but John Little at Blogs of War points us to an interesting fledgling internet project — an open-source military history site. I’ve bookmarked it already and will certainly be paying attention to its growth.
