BESLAN: Religion of Peace MemoriesSeptember 1st, 2005 at 1:14 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes
The handiwork of the islamofascist.
[Note: I was holding this post back until tomorrow since most of the sphere is blogging hurricane relief today, but after reading Gateway Pundit's remembrance, this is going up now.]
From Gateway Pundit:
Children dressed in their new clothes for the school year.
Mothers excited about meeting the new teachers.
Saying hello to your best friends again…
Watching the young girls being brought into another room.
Forced to clean up the blood off the floors.
Drinking urine to stay alive.
Dragging your younger brother through the halls.
Pulling his limp body through a broken window.
Family and friends of those killed and injured will join former hostages at the charred, crumbling shell of School Number One.
They will bring flowers and candles to the sports hall where more than 1,300 people were held captive for three days and where armed extremists strung bombs from the basketball hoops.
The gym is now papered with photographs of those who died here – children, teachers and parents and those killed trying to save them.
331 dead. 186 children.
With all the attention being paid to the biggest natural disaster in American history (and justifiably so), it’s easy to forget about the man-made disaster that happened a year ago today. You may have forgotten about the islamofascist slaughter of hundreds of children in a primary school in Beslan, Russia last year. I guarantee you that this father hasn’t forgotten.
Sure, the Old Media – and particularly the government-controlled Russian media – has been very careful to always refer to the Beslan attackers as Chechen militants. Despite the fact that 10 foreign arab “fighters” joined in on the festivities to find a way to slaughter infidel children and acheive the 72 virgins promised them by their so-called “god”.
Wikpedia: Beslan, Russia.
The Jawa Report is also remembering Beslan today.
The Rottweiler brings you a helpful reminder.
How even more heartening it would be if our own President â€œHope and Compassion for Child Murderersâ€? Bush would start taking notes, but thatâ€™s not likely to happen any time soon.
At least not as long as thereâ€™s still a mosque in the United States the floor of which he has yet to lick.
LONDON, Aug. 5 â€“ After years of taunts that Britain offered easy sanctuary to Muslim extremists, Prime Minister Tony Blair promised new anti-terrorism measures today to close down mosques and ban or deport clerics deemed to be fostering hatred and violence.
â€œLet no one be in any doubt,â€? he told a news conference, â€œthe rules of the game are changing.”
And about fookinâ€™ time too. Now be a good lad and send a copy of the new rule book to the White House, att.: President Limp Noodle, and be sure to include lots of pictures. Like this one:
Also, from Ralph Peters’ New York Post column shortly after the slaughter.
Or a nearly universal one. Those Muslims who preach Jihad against the West decided years ago that killing Jewish or Christian children is not only acceptable, but pleasing to their god when done by â€œmartyrs.â€?
It isnâ€™t politically correct to say this, of course. Weâ€™re supposed to pretend that Islam is a â€œreligion of peace.â€? All right, then: Itâ€™s time for Muslims to stand up for the once-noble, nearly lost traditions of their faith and condemn what Arab and Chechen terrorists and blasphemers did in the Russian town of Beslan.
If Muslim religious leaders around the world will not publicly condemn the taking of children as hostages and their subsequent slaughter â€“ if those â€œmen of faithâ€? will not issue a condemnation without reservations or caveats â€“ then no one need pretend any longer that all religions are equally sound and moral.
As they inevitably do, the terrorists reminded the world of their heartless barbarism. Even if France manages to beg the release of its kidnapped journalists in Iraq, it has begun to sense its vulnerability. And all Europeans with a vestige of sense will recognize that the school seizure in Russia could easily repeat itself in Languedoc or Umbria, Bavaria or Kent.
An attack on children is an attack on all of humanity.
Ironically, the only mention of “islamic terrorists” I’ve been able to find is in the caption of the above photo from al-Reuters of a soldier holding a baby during the hostage crisis.
My own words from this time last year still apply. Perhaps even moreso as idiots like Cindy Shitcan and her fellow travelers choose sides against the civilized world in the War on Terror.

Others marking this grim anniversary: What’s a Kyer? is remembering Beslan all week, In The Bullpen, Vince Aut Morire, Say Anything, Little Green Footballs, NIF, this post also linked to MVRWC’s open trackback fest – hope you’re safe and sound, Beth!…
Neal Boortz remembered today:
Today marks the anniversary of the Beslan school massacre. Do you remember this? It happened in Chechnya. Muslim terrorists shot school children in the back as they tried to escape at the end of a hostage crisis. Did you hear that? They SHOT CHILDREN IN THE BACK as they were trying to run. Now … listen to CNN today. While you’re at it, check out other media outlets, newspaper, radio and television. You might hear CNN and the other media outlets recognize this anniversary, but you _won’t_ hear CNN say that the murderers were Muslims. They were just “militants.” God forbid we identify Islam for the deadly and threatening religion it is.
