You are the weakest link, goodbye!

anne_2a.jpgTo follow up on the unsubstantiated neo-con accusation that no Muslim leaders condemned the violent reaction to the Danish cartoons, I will actually “substantiate” my claim – surely to the dismay of my neo-con detractors – by pointing to a great entry posted by a Syrian blogger on The Damascene Blog. The entry refers to a report on the Al-Arabiya TV station website that has a statement by a number of Muslim clerics and leaders from 21 countries condemning the acts of violence. Unfortunately the report is in Arabic, but you can check it out here anyway.

Now for a similar statement (or separate statements) by 21 prominent American leaders on the ongoing human rights violations in Iraq and elsewhere, and support for the crimes committed by Israel in the past as well as present, I am still waiting. But I’m afraid I have as much patience as Anne does. So allow me to say this, you – dear neo-cons, who get a kick out of banning people you cannot debate with – are the weakest link. Goodbye!

  1. It depends on how you define the phrase “prominent American leaders”. If you’re referring to your basic capitalists and government leaders, then I definitely agree with you. However, if you’re talking about populist leaders (e.g., Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, etc.), then there have been hundreds of them that have decried US-backed human rights violations.

  2. If you’re referring to your basic capitalists and government leaders
    Yes, those.

    I should’ve been more clear on that one. Thanks. 🙂
