The Blame Game

From the usual sources:
"The true culprit of terrorism
It has become common for the political commentators to spread misconceptions about the driving force of the modern-day terrorism [...] Behind the terrorist acts of al Qaeda lies nothing else but profound ideological incompatibility of the attackers with the libertarian set of values.

They want God, they want the Society or they want the Party to be responsible for their lives. Hence the praise and the understanding the Islamic extremists receive from the European left. They fight for the same cause and against the same enemy.

I doubt al Qaeda's murdering Londoners just because of crackpot laissez-faire Libertarian policies. Please, get a sense of perspective - or at least decency.

Oh, and here's someone who wants "God [...] to be responsible for their lives". I believe the FI may know him.



And he (unlike the Leftist boogeymen so beloved of the FI) may have actually aided Bin Laden's attack on London through gross incompetence.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
