Smashing the Cross

Al Qaeda vows jihad over Pope remarks:
"We will smash the cross ... (you will have no choice but) Islam or death," the statement added, citing a hadith (saying of the Prophet Mohammed) promising Muslims they would "conquer Rome ... as they conquered Constantinople".

Say, Taliban Jack, what was it your were saying about negotiating?

Footnote: although it may seem odd, I actually welcome this kind of rhetoric from al-Qaeda. They grow more confident, and are less circumspect. Language such as this is difficult for the Western dhimmi MSM to spin in their appeasements of Religion of Peace™. The plainer the message that Joe and Jean Average get that al-Qaeda has one of two plans in store for them, and their children, the more likely it is that they will wake up and understand we're in an existential war.

Elsewhere, the Religion of Peace™ demonstrates how a security contingent makes a path through a crowd of protestors for an official:
Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, a leader of the Islamic militant Hamas, was approaching the building for a Cabinet meeting when he was blocked by the protesters, police said. His bodyguards then opened fire to disperse the crowd, police said. Reporters heard the gunfire and saw a woman being taken away by ambulance.

No God that I would worship would condone killing children in His name.
