Allah together now!

Sing along with us! We’re threatening you again, Germany, and this time (the fourth time) it’s for real, this threat is, that is, honest. And we really mean it too no fooling for real.

That’s right. Germany is on edge again today (as it is every day), only this time it’s after receiving a fourth consecutive al-Qaeda video warning threatening an imminent bomb attack in Germany unless the government withdraws its troops from Afghanistan, which it is already planning to do of course, as quickly and thoroughly as it possibly can, although not quite all too publicly just yet, and everybody here knows this you see. So go figure. Dumb terrorists.

They (the terrorists) still don’t know just how “crudely pacifist” Germans really and truly are. As writer Thea Dorn rightly (writely?) described in last week’s Zeit (Vulgärpazifismus – where’s the link, you pacifist Zeitpeople types, huh?), unlike in other countries and cultures, freedom is free in Germany. As soon as it starts to cost anything, or even appears to, they’re outta here, or there (Afghansitan) in this case.

The terrorists don’t have to do anything here, in other words, so they won’t. They’re not really dumb, in other words. And I hope they didn’t take an offense in me saying that they were up there in paragraph two. Peace, brothers.

“The threats were aimed at German voters ahead of next Sunday’s general election and were being taken seriously by the security authorities.”

  1. These words pained me particularly: “unlike in other countries and cultures, freedom is free in Germany. As soon as it starts to cost anything, or even appears to, they’re outta here, or there (Afghansitan) in this case.” I sincerely hope this is not true. When push comes to shove, I hope the Germans can do what is right and fight when need be.

    You know how to make sure a bully gets bigger, meaner and more angry? Give in to him. These kind of terrorist theats will only INCREASE if civilized nations like Germany give in and refuse to confront them out of fear.

  2. Well, she didn’t use those words exactly (sorry about not having the link), but that’s what she was implying. I certainly meant it though, but I just HAVE TO be provocative. And of course you’re right about the bullying. The last thing anyone should do is apologize for having to defend him/her/themselves.

  3. I realized that his was YOUR pithy rhetoric at work – still, just the fact that IT CAN BE SAID, makes my German-American blood boil. “The truth hurts, don’t it” – “yep (ouch)”
