Good Cop or Better Cop...?
Some GOVer (part of the commenting community at the counter-jihad community at Gates of Vienna) approvingly quotes in full an article by oily reformist Muslim Amir Taheri published at the New York Post, about the Paris attacks and what they "mean":
The jihadis’ master plan to break us
By Amir Taheri November 15, 2015 | 5:40am PARIS — Still under shock from Friday night’s terror attacks... blah blah blah...
[For the full camelshit, see this]
In that steaming pile of feeling our pain, Amir coins (or retails) such silly phrases as "neo-jihadi".
In subsequent comments, Gates of Vienna co-owner Dymphna comments on this, as does another GOVer, RonaldB, at some length (I recall him as a dubious Softy from Jihad Watch comments), both seemingly impressed by Amir's Islamopologese -- or at the very least indicating not a shred of sense of seeing the Good Cop ploy being spun by Taheri. Thus RonaldB wrote, sounding all no-nonsense and expert in a State-Dept. sort of way: “The big difference between neo-Jihad and jihad, as you pointed out, is that jihad, as expounded by theorists such as Sayub Qutb and S.J. Malik, is that jihad envisions a movement towards traditional war, while neo-jihad describes an eternity of pinpricks, until the infidel submits through pure exhaustion. ”
Meanwhile, Dymphna seemed impressed by Amir Taheri's coinage (or usage) of the silly term “neo-jihadi” (or if she didn't, she showed no sign of a reasonable cynicism).
