So it's all about foreign policy, is it?
Robert Baer was on Radio Five Live this morning to discuss his documentary “The Cult of the Suicide Bomber 2” (Channel Four, next Monday). A clip was played of Baer talking to the cousin of Omar Khan Sharif, the Derby-born terrorist who drowned after failing to blow himself up at a seaside bar in Tel Aviv. The cousin (I missed his name - wasn’t quick enough getting Audacity to record) was very proud of his dead relative:
I wish I was in his position, I really do, but I don’t have it in me. Allah has not chosen me, Allah has not put it inside me.Baer then asked:
What would have to change in this country for this war, if you like, to calm down and stop?How do you think he answered? "Change our foreign policy?" "Get out of Iraq?" "Stop supporting Israel?" Er... no:
Accept Allah’s law. Simple. Accept Allah’s law… Allah created us all so accept his law. End of story. Nothing more, nothing less.Will the appeasers ever get it?
