"To err is human. To forgive, divine. Neither of which is Marine Corps policy"
Old USMC saying.
I watched the news about the terrorist attack in Paris. Just to get the Islamic spin, I switched to Al Jazeera. They have a lot of money but their program directors are very inept. First they had their pet American announcer tell about the event, but he made it clear that this was not anything to do with Islam, that Moslems all over the world were deeply saddened, etc. etc. Then his guest started reading congratulatory emails and "tweets" from all over the world, praising the attack, lavishing plaudits on the terrorists, and exulting in the massacre. A strange juxtaposition of the message, at best. Not that I believe for a second any of the crocodile tears. I remember 911, and watching the Palestinian Authority mouth piece saying how sorry they were about the attack. Then the news crews went out into the streets and Palestinians were honking horns, dancing, the women were making that "trilling" sound they make, and handing out little cakes and candies. They have a very odd way of manifesting grief, do the Moslems.
But watching Al Jazerra is like listening to Lord Haw Haw or Tokyo Rose in World War II. You listen for what you can learn, but you don't buy the B.S. You know you are listening to the enemy.
I finished all the final work on the cold preparations. The wind was howling, I made a sandwich and sat down in my easy chair at 1:00 a.m. to listen to Coast to Coast. Noory came on, with some limp member who writes for World Net Daily. The first news story was about Paris, as you would expect. But what to my disbelieving ears did appear? Noory and this buffoon start talking about how it's all the fault of the journalists who were murdered, and how they understood how the terrorists felt, and really, my dear, didn't the French bring it on themselves by "disrespecting" Allah and Mohammed. Noory held forth about how he had been taught as a child that you should always respect someone else's religion, no matter how strange and alien it might seem to you. The guest, who's not important enough that I remember his name, allowed that he "loved" Moslems and had marched in some of their events and demonstrations.
At that point, I decided that my policy of listening to George Noory, though he wouldn't make a pimple on Art Bell's derriere, had been misguided. Turned it off, removed the frequency from my frequency memory list on the radio. I sent W.C. Crane, a radio company that advertises on Coast to Coast and from whom I have purchased equipment, C. Crane Radio an email explaining what was said on Coast to Coast. I'm still going to buy from them, because they are a good outfit and didn't know what was being said anyway, but I thought they should know.
I also sent Noory an email asking what mosque he attends and whether he is Sunni or Shiite. Just wondered.
