Double your jihad, double your fun

This morning, before I was even able to down my penultimate gulp of coffee, I learned that Ramzi Youself, the mastermind of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center (in which six people were mass-murdered and over a thousand injured -- which means that many, if not many more, were intended to be mass-murdered) was also convicted in a plot to bomb a dozen American planes from the sky. 

Ah, yet another Islamic plot to mass-murder us -- this one evidently hatched in the 80s or 90s -- which I'd never heard about till just now, to add to the long list.

Not to mention the Mohamedan mass-murderer in Toulouse, France, Mohamed Merah now -- according to a BBC report -- reasonably considered part of a global jihad network:

Mohamed Merah made "1,800 calls to over 180 contacts in 20 different countries."

(Remember that Mohamed Bouyeri, the slaughterer of Dutch artist Theo Van Gogh, was a member of a terrorist cell, the so-called "Hofstad Group", with nearly 20 members mostly Dutch-born Muslims as well as Moroccan immigrants, including two Dutch converts to Islam and two women, and one Syrian Muslim -- all with connections to the 2003 suicide bombing of Casablanca.)

And let us not forget, for another example -- to pluck it out of thousands from a non-Sikh turban -- the so-called "blind sheik" Omar Abdel-Rahman, sentenced to life in prison in 1996 for conspiring to assassinate Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and destroy several New York landmarks, including the U.N. building and the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels.

For which part of Rahman's résumé do we think the newly minted Arab-Sprung Muslim-Brotherhoood Obama darling President of Egypt, Mohammed Mohammed Morsi (yes, that's two Mohammeds -- as the old chewing gum jingle goes, "Double your jihad, double your fun") wants his sentence commuted in order to have him released and returned a free man back to Egypt? For his participation in an assassination plot on the evil tyrant Mubarak; or for plotting to mass-murder New Yorkers and destroy NYC landmarks? For the former? For the latter?

Let's go with the jihad jingle: for both.
