The enablers

Caroline Glick reminds everyone who enables the likes of Mohamed Merah: The governments of France and the United States through their refusal to see the enemy for what it is.
An analysis of the nature of his crime and the identity of his many accomplices must necessarily begin with a question. Why did Merah videotape his crime?

Why did take the trouble of strapping a video camera to his neck and filming himself chasing eight-year-old Miriam Monsonego through the school courtyard and shooting her three times in the head? Why did he document his execution of Rabbi Jonathan Sandler and his two little boys, three-year-old Gavriel and six-year-old Aryeh?

The first answer is because Merah took pride in killing Jewish children. Beyond that, he was certain that millions of people would be heartened by his crime. By watching him shoot the life out of Jewish children, they would be inspired to repeat his actions elsewhere.

And he was surely correct.
Read the whole thing.

For those wondering where I have been all day today, I've been sick in bed. I ate something that did not agree with me at a Bar Mitzva on Saturday night, and I have been fighting off the after effects.
