Hugh, because of the vagaries of Intense Debate, I have saved these two posts and other recent ones to my computer to be savored and, I hope you don't mind, quoted to others on appropriate occasions.

The Intense Debate comments system has made it impossible to follow any thread or to develop ideas on any of the posted articles. I am ready for JW to move to its new thingamajig - the sooner the better.

"They said Mehsud had built a vast financial empire on drug and weapon smuggling, donations from al-Qaeda and wealthy Arabs. Haulage and transport bosses paid substantial "tolls" while wealthy businessmen from Waziristan living in other Pakistani cities were warned their relatives would be beheaded if they did not pay up."

Typical mob behavior - extortion, mayhem, and murder. Is there any difference between Islam's bosses and mafia bosses?

"Terror organizations operating in the West Bank consider Palestinian students ideal candidates, mainly because of their strong political awareness, their young age and high motivation..."

Students who study the texts and tenets of Islam would be ideal candidates because they know that the terror organizations have it right when it comes to the teachings of Islam.

Now, if we could just get western politicians to do the same study and come to the same appreciation about the dangers of Islam.

It's been going on for several days now. Is it time to ditch Intense Debate? These glitches come far too frequently for my taste.

Of course, it could just be poltergeists...

To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against Intense Debate...

“Nor does President Obama see this challenge as a fight against `jihadists.' Describing terrorists in this way--using a legitimate term, `jihad,’ meaning to purify oneself or to wage a holy struggle for a moral goal--risks giving these murderers the religious legitimacy they desperately seek but in no way deserve." John O. Brennan, Obama’s top counterterrorism advisor.

One of these things is not like the other,
One of these things just doesn't belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the other
