It's worth noting, I think, that al-Q's reaction to Pope Benedict is just one more piece of evidence that it's just not true that if we only but tweaked our foreign policy a bit, they'd be satisfied and leave us alone.

Yeesh, how many times can one mention the Crusades in just a few short paragraphs!?

Reminds me of "Lies and the Lying Liars who Lie Them" or whatever that Franken book was called. Simple tactics for simple audiences, I guess.

Amen. For the hard core jihadists nothing will satisfy them until Islam rules the globe.

Reminiscent of some other cartoons:

Speaking of cartoons, quick, someone tell Oliphant.

Again with the Crusades.
When is someone in the west going to stand up and say:
Yes indeed, the Pope called for Christendom to rise up against the Islamic invaders in defense of the Christian Roman Empire.
Yes, Christians will defend themselves if attacked.

These statements all seem incredibly naive until one realizes that in the Islamic world the Crusades are still discussed as if they happened only yesterday, not hundreds of years ago. Then they just seem, well, naive. They remind me of the Russian caricature made of the Checkov character in Star Trek - "The Russians did this, the Russians made that, the Russians discovered this" because that's what their schools and society told them. So it is again with these Islamic fascists - never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

"Remember Lepanto"
should be taught and on the lips of all upright Catholics.

The crusades are recent history. The sunnis and shias are still killing each other over squabbles which took place in the early 8th century.
