Hard Evidence

by Christopher Hitchens - November 16th, 2009 - Slate

I wrote some years ago that the three most salient characteristics of the Muslim death-squad type were self-righteousness, self-pity, and self-hatred. Surrounded as he was by fellow shrinks who were often very distressed by his menacing manner, Maj. Hasan managed to personify all three traits—with the theocratic rhetoric openly thrown in for good measure—and yet be treated even now as if the real word for him was troubled. Prepare to keep on meeting those three symptoms again, along with official attempts to oppose them only with therapy, if that. At least the holy warriors know they are committing suicide.

Christopher Hitchens seems to be one of the few writers on the left who understand that we cannot destroy our culture and survive. The Islamo fascists are not going to institute a better world. Their sharia dominated system of tyranny will be as bad today as it was when Islam ruled the world for a short period a thousand years ago. However I sometimes wonder if Hitchens was not so dedicated to hating all religions, including Christianity, would he be as good at seeing the faults of Islam?
