Yesterday on BBC Radio 4, I heard a new coinage to describe these 'murderous Islamists'. Professor Stephen Hutchings used the terms Islamic Racism and Anti- Caucasian (the twin brother to anti-Semitism?? )with reference to a pre-Xmas conflict in Russia between 'Islamic Racists' and Caucasian Christians. I added the word ' Christians' - a reference which Western media and pundits are too coy to mention. http://www.llc.manchester.ac.uk/subjects/russian/staff/stephen-hutchings/
Furthermore, as gung-ho Muslims are branded 'Islamists' I think it is quite apt to describe Messrs Blair and Bush and Sarkozy ( although Sarkozy is of Jewish descent) as Christianists - and Wolfowitz, Perle, Ariel Sharon, Netanyahu as Judaists. You know, that English proverb about " sauce for the goose and sauce for the gander" ???
Wars and conflicts do not happen in a vacuum. The 'terrorism' of the Caucasus (Islamic) States comes from a good pedigree. During the First Chechen War (1994-1996) an estimated 30,000 - 100,000 civilians were killed, 500,000 were displaced, and dozens of cities and villages were left in ruins by the Russians.

And this, from GQ magazine:

And this I found on a website: "The Bali bombing of 2002 caused the deaths of over 200 people. Even sadder, 120 deaths were innocent Australians".
What this world needs is a remedial lesson in Political Arithmetic and therapy for Moral Amnesia.
