For liberals, denial is a river in Egypt

We’re already missing Tony Blair:

Gordon Brown has banned ministers from using the word “Muslim” in ­connection with the ­terrorism crisis. The Prime Minister has also instructed his team – including new Home Secretary Jacqui Smith – that the phrase “war on ­terror” is to be dropped. The shake-up is part of a fresh attempt to improve community relations and avoid offending Muslims…

Most people, especially those trying to blow you up, see retreat as a sign of weakness, not strength. 

The next time a liberal says “we” are to blame for terrorism because (insert excuse here), point out this quote from a former jihadist:

When I was still a member of what is probably best termed the British Jihadi Network–a series of British Muslim terrorist groups linked by a single ideology–I remember how we used to laugh in celebration whenever people on TV proclaimed that the sole cause for Islamic acts of terror like 9/11, the Madrid bombings and 7/7 was Western foreign policy.

By blaming the Government for our actions, those who pushed this “Blair’s bombs” line did our propaganda work for us.

More important, they also helped to draw away any critical examination from the real engine of our violence: Islamic theology.

If it was Jews and “right-wing Americans” committing terror, the left would eagerly call it out.  Heck, Hollywood liberals might even make a movie about it.  Oops, looks like they already have!

Meanwhile, atrocities like this are ignored by the western media.  Maybe because it was not committed by American troops, or maybe because liberals are afraid that it may help the real enemy, you know, George Bush.

In his first statement to the House of Commons since assuming power last week, Brown said he would surrender to Parliament 12 powers traditionally reserved for the prime minister under the “Royal prerogative,” including the power to declare war, along with the power to dissolve the House, and the right to appoint judges and bishops.
