Arresting bombers might upset Muslims

By

Reuters has gone 'way beyond parody today with its headline,

Danish Muslims say arrests hurt integration hopes.

Try to keep a straight face:

Just as Danes were breathing sighs of relief that the wounds caused by cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad were healing, they were re—opened with the arrest of seven Muslims accused of plotting bomb attacks.

Muslims say the arrests two months ago have set back their efforts to integrate into Danish society and they find themselves again forced to defend their allegiance to their adoptive country.

The Politically Correct thing, obviously, is for the Danes to let the bomb—plotters go, just so Reuter's "Muslims in the street" won't have their feelings hurt. It would be nice to think, however, that there are a lot of real Muslims in Denmark who were glad the would—be bombers were caught before they killed a lot of innocent people. In fact, truly loyal Muslims might help catch all these characters before they can kill really important people, like Reuters journalists.

Notice that for Reuters, Denmark was responsible for the riots incited by two radical imams who live there, who faked crude and salacious Mohammed cartoons, stuck them into the real ones drawn by professional cartoonists in Jyllands Posten, and deliberately spread them around the world to cause the riots.

Thus the lie lives on, even after being fully exposed. The truth has been Reuterrootered.

On the other hand, Dan Rather might be applauding somewhere.
