Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/14/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/14/2011Norwegian police say that the confessed mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik told them that there are up to eighty terrorist cells in Europe made up of people who share his ideology. They also say, however, that they don’t believe him.

In possibly unrelated news from Norway, a recent study shows that the intelligence of Norwegian schoolteachers has declined by 10% since the 1950s.

In other news, an angry Muslim mob attacked the residence of the chief of a Tunisian TV broadcasting company. The rioters were upset because the TV station had shown the 1979 animated film Persepolis, which depicted Allah as an old bearded man in a robe. The executive and his family managed to escape out the back before the mob firebombed his house.

Meanwhile, President Omar Hassan al-Bashir of Sudan says that the new constitution for his country will be completely Islamic, and bring Sudan’s laws into line with sharia.

" Dealing with the devil"
If you dont live in israel it seems complete madness to exchange 1 israeli soldier for 1000 bloodthirstsy terrorists .
On the otherhand , if you and your children are serving in the IDF ,you will know , that a death in battle is acceptable as the fate og a soldier , while becoming a prisoner at the mercy of barbarians are not .
The Shalit deal can better be understood as something that makes war bearable for ordinary people , parents , children and grandparents ,in the perspektive of an ENDLESS war .
You might say that say that by making this deal, Israel is going through a tribal ritual that makes it spiritually ready for the next war .
Also you might say that all those terrorists will eventually end up either dead ore imprisoned in a giant prison called Gaza
