I don't know why I am surprised but I am surprised. And I continue to be surprised. Stupidly.
Almost 1,000 intellectuals and academics submitted to the Royal Swedish Academy of Science a petition to protest the "monstrous" act of awarding the prize to Prof. Israel Aumann. They charged that he is using game theory to "justify the Israeli occupation and the oppression of the Palestinians." They also protest the award to Prof. Schelling, whom they blamed for inspiring American military strategy that includes bombing civilians.
Prof. Aumann, of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, received the honor shortly after the end of the Sabbath, together with American Prof. Thomas Schelling, for their work on understanding conflict through game theory. Aumann brought his entire extended family to the ceremony, where Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf presented the prize.
The Israeli scholar, the eighth Israeli to win a Nobel prize, moved to Israel in 1956 and is chairman of Hebrew University's Center for Rationality. [Rationality? Ah, I love the smaell of irony on a Sunday morning- Atlas]
These people are begging for the caliphate. So Yasser, the most successful murderer, terrorist barbarian if good but this fella is evil. Who is the evil one? Read through he comments on the bitchslap thread and tell me who is evil. I grieve everyday for the 2,000 men and women lost in our war on radical Islam and thank G-d men like that exist when I tuck my children into bed at night, but what is the alternative?
What is the alternative? Sit and weight for the next 3,000 plus innocent civilians to die on their way to work? We tried sitting by, doing nothing - after WTC 91, the Cole, Khobar all of those terror attacks against America and freedom too long to list here. Sitting it out is an action. It is a sign of capitulation. It is an invitation to be attacked. And attacked we were. Tough calls had to made, tough decisions had to made and carried out, and followed through, the course stayed A courage of conviction.It is the left that is PRO-WAR. I am against war which is why we have to go into the Middle East and destroy the enemy. Destroy the destroyers.
Mine is the Peace movement.Mine is the Peace through Strength movement.
The Left, the Democrats, theirs is the war movement, the dhimmitude movement. Theirs is the
sit-in-your-protected-abode, knees knocking waiting for the next attack, waiting
for the caliphate movement.
The thinking is so lopsided it would be comical if it weren't fatal.
Why is it the left thinks nothing of thousands dying daily at the hands of Radical Islam. Never gets a mention. Why is it they dont' concern themselves in the least with the murdered and enslaved at the hands of Arab Muslims in Sudan and Darfur? What is wrong with these people? Why aren't the feminists decrying the terrible acts against women and children in the name of Islam?
They get their bowels all in uproar over the Dean Hitler pic. The fact is Dean is a manic and that was the point of that photo. Nothing more .......... look at his face, need I say more.
I look over their argument time and again and think of Jesus when he said
"By their acts [fruits] ye shall know them". And so we know them eh?
