Strange Bedfellows

Davids Medienkritik looks at how left-wing extremists and Islamists are flocking together in Germany. Not that it's a German phenomenon, the pairing seems to be happening here too. And it's easy enough to understand, "You hate Bush? Whatdayouknow, we hate Bush too." But I have to wonder about the depth of the left's understanding of Islamism. Are they thinking that somehow after the grown-ups are frogmarched to their cells that agnostics, atheists, and Mao worshipers will get a pass from the Islamists?

And that brings up another question, where are the atheists these days? The same leftists who used to delight in calling Christianity a fairy tale seem to be silent on the question of Islam. Maybe, because it would force a contradiction, the modern leftist has decided not to visit the question of Islam. That doesn't mean that Islam won't visit him when the time comes.

This leftist / islamist axis of evil scares the heck out of me. I posted my own two-cents worth at

I think you've got it right, but I wouldn't worry too much about the alliance holding. The left has been able to overlook female abuse, even genital mutilation, the stoning of gays, honor killing, and the death penalty for apostasy, but sooner or later the Jihadists will attack the whales. Then look out, the gloves will be off.
