Death Cult

In response to a post at Fifteen Minutes, Opinion by David Brooks in the New York Times:

They're still victims of the delusion that Paul Berman diagnosed after Sept. 11: "It was the belief that, in the modern world, even the enemies of reason cannot be the enemies of reason. Even the unreasonable must be, in some fashion, reasonable."

This death cult has no reason and is beyond negotiation. This is what makes it so frightening. This is what causes so many to engage in a sort of mental diversion. They don't want to confront this horror. So they rush off in search of more comprehensible things to hate.

Blaming Muslims and Islam for the horror is easy. The real blame lies at the feet of the people who profit from this carnage. These are the terrorist leaders who live in luxury while they send children to blow themselves up. These are the demented Saudis and their 10th century society that lets girls burn in their school rather than let them be seen by men while they make brothels rich all over the world. Its the clerics in Iran that wish to see the west divided and in chaos. Its the Syrian Baathist trying to hold on to power and its the Muslim clerics all across the world who are paid to preach hate instead of Islam.

There is only one solution. Their wish must be granted.
