Is the commode commenting on the color of the bathtub?
Reader comment on item: Amnesty International Boss Endorses "Jihad in self-defence"

Apr 5, 2010 16:48

Jihad as self-defense? If there is such a thing as "US/NATO Imperialism", does it not use precisely the same rationale as "Jihad in self-defense" - that of promoting higher standards of human rights? And yet one gets AI's 'violence pass' and the other doesn't. Just what qualifies one for this little permission slip? Do you have to make below a certain income level? Wear the proper clothing? Use the right terms ("Jihad good, Crusade bad")? Make the right friends? Declare the right enemies? Some codification might help smooth the path for future applicants for AI's vaunted Red Badge of Righteous Violence.
