Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/22/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/22/2010Two Syrian Catholic bishops living in Lebanon told the Synod of Middle Eastern Bishops that the “dialogue” with Islam that has been promoted so vigorously by the Vatican is not having any significant effect. In fact, the bishops question whether there is really any point to it.

In other news, the Swedish city of Malmö is on edge after a series of shootings of immigrants by a person or persons unknown. The victims were targeted from a distance with high-powered rifles.

I know that what the culturally-enriched youth-targeting Malmö sniper is doing something illegal, but I think it's good that, for once, the sharia-enclave inhabitants of that place can get a taste of how they make the human beings who live in that city feel.

On the other hand, on the illegality of the sniper's actions, if laws in the civilized world are no longer enforced because of "cultural sensitivities" that dictate that muslims should be allowed to get away with committing crimes, what's left to the ordinary citizen is to take matters into their own hands. I believe that the sniper has figured out that no one can count on the police in that city anymore, so he's left with what he's been doing, or the Mona Sahlin alternative: just plain surrender.

“I’ve been following the group’s ideology from the start,” al-Feki added. “Their policies are inflexible and they have failed to evolve and to learn how to give and take. They are also incapable of working within a group.”

Excellent observations.
