The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

Ahmadinejad asks for Germany's help to find "a solution to Zionism."
A German government official said on Thursday that letter written by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to German Chancellor Angela Merkel asks her to help solve the Palestinian problem and deal with Zionism.

“There’s nothing about the nuclear issue (in the letter),” the official told Reuters on condition of anonymity due to the extreme sensitivity of the issue for the German government.

“It’s all related to Germany and how we have to find a solution to the Palestinian problems and Zionism and so on. It’s rather weird,” The official, who has seen the letter, said.
Hoo-ee. Way to step on your crank, dude. Germans are hard to offend, but suggesting they're still secretly Nazis is the #1 guaranteed way to get their panties in a wad. Of course, German officials are choosing to read it as "weird," rather than as a shocking and alarming insult. I find that weird.

In any case, ya gotta love Iranian logic. The Holocaust never happened, but we sure do admire Hitler for pulling it off, and we'd like your help finishing it. Uh-huh.

UPDATE: Ah, much better. Merkel: "He's repeating the old thinking, which is totally unacceptable to us." Interesting way to put it, but she sounds pissed and that's good.

And in Norway, things seem to be well on the road to that thing that never happened: Norwegian Jews warned to not be so . . . Jewish.
The Mosaic Religious Community has advised its Jewish members against speaking Hebrew loudly on the streets of Oslo or wearing Jewish emblems. The suggestion has infuriated some in the membership.

It comes after a Jewish man wearing a kippah, or yarmulke, was assaulted on an Oslo street Saturday. The Mosaic Religious Community wants its members to be careful.

"We have encouraged our members to avoid speaking Hebrew loudly on the street," Anne Sender of the Jewish organization told newspaper Vårt Land. She also told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) that men may want to reconsider wearing the yarmulke.
The desire to just keep your head down and hope you'll be left alone is understandable. The illusion that it will be a successful strategy is unforgivable. At least Islam has a word for it when victims voluntarily subjugate themselves to the master race: dhimmitude.
