America is so un-Islamophobic that at ground zero they’re building a 13-story mosque — on the site of an old Burlington Coat Factory damaged by airplane debris that Tuesday morning. So in the ruins of a building reduced to rubble in the name of Islam, a temple to Islam will arise.
According to Mayor Bloomberg a day or two before Shahzad’s arrest, the likeliest culprit was “someone who doesn’t like the health care bill” (that would be me, if your SWAT team’s at a loose end this weekend).
Because the reactions of Bloomberg & Co. are a useful glimpse into the decayed and corroded heart of a civilization. One day the bomb will explode. Dozens dead? Hundreds? Thousands? Would we then restrict immigration from certain parts of the world? Or at least subject them to extra roadblocks on the fast track to citizenship?
