Well, it's been another quiet week in Lake Mobegone...

I haven't revisited this little series of mine in about a year, as other things and essays intervened in the meanwhile (also, the construction of these pieces, using cut-&-paste from the Jihad Watch site, proved to be tediously cumbersome, due in great part to the bells and whistles of that site).

I first thought of the idea after I wrote a cheeky satire of Garrison Keillor's "News from Lake Wobegone" back in December of 2011 -- and shortly thereafter, when it occurred to me one day (more consciously than heretofore) that the mere, sheer effect on a person of being presented the horrible mountain -- or at least one small, bloody, jagged peak -- of the data which the Muslim world churns out on a daily, weekly basis would, or could, be useful.

At any rate, I now offer this latest installment of my series as one hopefully novel and palatable way to get the horrible point across, with a tip of the hat to Garrison Keillor's "News from Lake Wobegone" -- where the pun "Mobegone" (the "Mo" of course, referring to the Prophet of Islam) plays upon the double meanings of "begone", as I explain in the footnote of my first installment.

Speaking of which, I remind the reader to take a look at my four previous installments, which I have  linked at the bottom of today's post, way down below the long, horrifying list I now, without further ado, present:

See which actively compiles its 'List of Islamic Terror Attacks For the Past 30 Days' into annual lists as times passes.

I am of a mind that Western people are studiously ignoring the situation as the war to end all wars is being created in every Western country.

Of course, Western people are also studiously ignoring WHICH easily identifiable group is creating this situation....

Grand Mufti says pope's genocide comments 'immoral'

Egghead said...

Quotations from article:

Subsequently the Vatican said Francis used the term 'genocide' as part of a "precise and coherent line of dialogue".

"This speech was very clear for those who wanted to grasp (its meaning), it was very rich", Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said.

"In the end, (it was about) the desire for reconciliation and dialogue between the Turkish people and the Armenian people", he continued.

From Egghead: Where have the Muslim Turks expressed a 'desire' to 'reconcile and dialogue' with Christian Armenians?

Does it matter to the Pope what Turkish Muslims 'desire' because it is readily apparent that Islam 'desires' the continued terror, torture, and genocide of Christians....
