The news from the Muslim world
really is scary
By Bob Condor

I have been reading "Sitnews" regularly for more than
a year. I began because of your easy, on-line access
to the local weather and then I started reading and enjoying
your columnists like Dave Kiffer and Jason Love. I even sign on just
to look at your utterly spectacular Alaska photography and I
forward the pictures to my friends down south. I guess
you could say I am hooked on "Sitnews". I applaud
you for putting opinion letters on the front page. Sure
sometimes the letters are contentious but all those smart people
have something interesting to say and they sure make a person
think, like the one Mark Neckameyer wrote yesterday about how
the Muslim countries don't understand us. I was thinking
about that letter today when I read today's news.
There is a new major hit movie being shown in Muslim countries
produced by our friends in Turkey called "Valley of
the Wolves". In this nightmare, U.S. Soldiers kill
innocent Muslim children on purpose and commit all kinds of atrocities. In
one scene our soldiers attack a wedding party in Iraq so
they can drag prisoners off to Abu Ghraib then conspire
with a Jewish doctor to harvest and sell the internal organs
of the Arab prisoners. There are American movie stars in
this abomination by the way including Gary Bussey.
This is shocking coming from a country to whom we give aid, starring
actors who are US citizens. I think they are traitors
in spirit if not punishable legally. No more Gary Bussey
movies for me!
I also saw on television today that mobs in Pakistan
are still rioting against those infamous Danish cartoons
and they are taking it out on what they probably consider an
Icon of American culture. They chant "Death to America"
while they are burning down Kentucky Fried Chicken franchises.
I wish I could come up with a joke about how the mobs should
burn bakeries who sell "Danish" but I will leave that
to someone more clever than I. Probably some poor
Pakistani investor just lost his life savings when the franchise
was torched and why pick on us or KFC anyway?
It is getting more difficult for me to sleep nights feeling secure.
Thank you for doing so much to keep us informed.
