Can't say we weren't warned

Let's slum it through the London Free Press letters section today.

How can Canadian advocates for Israeli self defence best help their own country? Why, get out, of course, so as not to endanger other Canadians with careless talk that might anger the righteously violent.

I would suggest that those people emigrate to Israel -- including Stephen Harper and his Republi, . . . er, Conservative party members. This could help spare our crown jewels of potential "acts of terrorism."

Allan B. Capp
Actual religious psychopaths are a mysterious force of nature in Allan's world, and as such no more subject to blame than the ozone hole. Obviously you blame the guy who drives the SUV; wasn't he warned enough times about the consequences to himself and the rest of us?

Look at what this next person writes, with disingenuous second-person use of the pronoun "we", meaning "you":
...please also take a look at the number of children massacred by Israel in the last month. That sums it up for me.

As long as my fellow citizens are willing to speak out against injustice and stand up for peace our country will be safe. The day when we sit silently or worse yet, applaud such actions, is the day when we should be worried.

Ali Asfour
Let me translate that for you :
As long as my fellow citizens are willing to speak out against injustice and stand up for peace their country will be safe. The day when they sit silently or worse yet, applaud such actions, is the day when they should be worried.

Simpa Thiza
...Worried by what, exactly, Simpa? There's something about a clear if-then like the one in the last paragraph of a letter in my hometown newspaper that kind of gets me wondering what you're up to -- and I sure hate to feel that way about a fellow man of peace.

Maybe I'll catch that plane to Israel, chased out by a panicking mob of Allan Capps eager not to offend the wrong barbarian; just in the nick of time as it turns out, as
Ali blows the city up behind me.

Update: No, I've decided to stay here in Canada.

How many muzzie's does it take to form a logical thought, or understand consequence? Not going to happen, it is against thier religion.

How many muzzie's does it take to change a light bulb? None, there is no light in Islam.
