“The South Korean Shaikh, Abu Mus’Ab Al-Virgini”
Blogger Basharee Murtadd went looking for reactions on Arab web sites to the mass murders committed at Virginia Tech, and while it’s pretty clear that Seung Hui Cho was simply insane (and not on a personal jihad), the jihadis are eager to claim him as one of their own: The Difference between Jews and Muslims.
Translation: “The first picture of the South Korean Shaikh, Abu Mus’Ab Al-Virgini” (an attempt to make him seem like Abu Mus’Ab Al-Zarqawi).
As a disturbed individual was randomly shooting his colleagues at Virginia Tech, a Jewish Holocaust survivor blocked a classroom door to protect his students from the shooter. This 77-year-old engineering professor heroically sacrificed his life on Holocaust Memorial Day by taking bullets the shooter meant for his students.
Rest in peace, Liviu Librescu.
And now, turning to our peace-loving Muslims at an Arabic Islamic forum, I translate some of their ‘condolences’:Al-Jazeera reported 20 dead and 29 injured. Praise be to Allah.And on this site, the massacre is being referred to as “The Great Ghazwa of Virginia.” (Ghazwa means ‘raid’ in Arabic, referring to the battles Muhammad and his followers fought against the non-Muslims.)
Praise be to Allah for these calamities hitting America. By the will of Allah, more of this [will happen], following their defeat in Iraq and Afghanistan.
O Allah, keep America busy with itself, and enamor its people against it.
