Ex-Terrorists, In Their Own Words
— Ace

Three former terrorists speak out, and repent.

Pretty compelling. It seems to be a dated video, maybe from 2004 or so, but it's worth listening to.

Incidentally, one of the ex-terrorists, Walid Shoebat, has a website where further interviews can be heard. He compares radical Islam to Naziism, and quotes Churchill's line about having a choice between shame (appeasement, concessions) and war... except, then as now, shame leads to war, too.

They seem to think that Bush is right to confront the terrorists in Iraq and everywhere else.

1 fuck. It has felt like this might turn into the pacific for a few years. It's possible that things might end well for everyone though.

2 Walid Shoebat spoke at my school a year or so ago. The auditorium was packed and it had the tightest security screening I've seen for any event on campus.

It all turned out to be absolutely necessary, when a couple representatives of the religion of peace(complete with Arafat-style headscarves) started screaming at the podium about how he was spreading "foul zionist Lies."

A very revealing experience.

3 A couple years ago I read an article about sexual perversion in the Islamic world, I think it was at FrontPage.

Mr. Shoebat was quoted in the article, reporting on how when he lived in the Middle East he had witnessed a five year old boy being enthusiastically raped by a number of older boys.

The article dealt mainly with the foul treatment of women, and again Mr. Shoebat discussed how horribly his mother had been treated, and how when he came to this country he brought his parents with him and delivered them both from their former lives of abused and abuser.

He is possessed of an impressive moral fiber, to have done and seen all he had done and been raised in those conditions and have turned out the way he is.

One would think the experience would make Mike mad at them, rather than us. Must've really scrambled his mind, as well as "down there."

Cordially...

Does the rape of a young boy by a Catholic priest condemn all Christians?

6 Does the rape of a young boy by a Catholic priest condemn all Christians?

No, but way to miss the point. The single illustration of what is meant by "prevalent sexual perversion" is not meant to make the case by itself. It is only the illustration.

Nor is the assertion being made that all Muslims raped that 5 year old boy, or five year old boys generally, or engage in pederatsy in general, or even engage in sexual abuse generally. It is an illustraion of an attitude and a perspective of other human beings and suffering.

All things which occur are Allah's will. No thing which occurs is not. All infidels may be slaughtered without shame. All women and children exist to fulfill men's desires and whims, however cruel. Thus spoke the Koran.

Don't be a douche, NotZero.

8 I call BS on the name "Shoebat."

9 No, the rape of a boy by a Catholic priest does not indite all priests. But rape and sexual deviancy is common in the Arab world (so I guess it's not deviancy there). When I was in Iraq, it was common to check up on an Iraqi police checkpoint or station and instead of seeing police guarding their posts, they were making man-love to one another. Yechh.

10 I was once in Indonesia-Batam to be exact. Together with the locals, I happened to visit their red light district. I was given a woman to be my companion on that evening. The woman told me in her broken English - no lips kissing since I've drunk a beer which they consider a liquor. But my oh my, when we were in bed, she gave me a BJ.

From my inquiry later on, I've learned that it is really a part of sexual ritual that a Muslim woman have to perform to the husband. Anything that would make the husband happy.

11 Ace: I don't think it's that dated. Shoebat and the gentleman on the left both mention "what happened in London" - I assume they're talking about the subway attacks.

12 I call BS on the name "Shoebat."

Every time I see that name, I think of Richard Reed, the would-be "shoe bomber."
