Satire dead (again)

Via that utter cunt, Twenty, I find that the Muslims have killed satire (again).
JUN 21 - Osama bin Laden has been awarded the highest Islamic honor as a reaction to the United Kingdom knighting Salman Rushdie.

The Ulema Council, a leading group of Islamic scholars in Pakistan with a purported membership of 2,000, gave a tit-for-tat recognition to bin Laden the title of Saifullah, meaning "sword of God," reported Stratfor in its Intelligence Summary today.
...

"If a blasphemer can be given the title Sir' by the West despite the fact he's hurt the feelings of Muslims, then a mujahid who has been fighting for Islam against the Russians, Americans and British must be given the lofty title of Islam, Saifullah," the council's chairman, Tahir Ashrafi, told Reuters.

It would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic. That's it: the whole school will now dig the vegetable garden...

Religion is stupid.

T'would be awfully funny though, were one of our ministers to announce that the whole of Pakistan was now fair game for terrorist attacks.

"tit for tat" - how apt.

Well, gentlemen, the late Karl Krauss would probably murmur: "Where the sun of wisdom is sinking deepest / even dwarfs are throwing gigantic shadows."
