Two more American troops murdered today in Afghanistan as the UN joins forces with Karzai and the Koran Jihad by calling for "disciplinary action" against the soldiers who disposed of Korans last month.
In other words, the dhimmi of the world are uniting to turn the Islamic screws on the USA. And the USA has absolutely no clue what is happening.
The United Nations joined Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Thursday in calling on the U.S. military to take disciplinary action against those who burned copies of the Koran at a NATO air base, calling the incident a "grave mistake".
Despite an apology from U.S. President Barack Obama, the burning of the Muslim holy book at the Bagram base north of the capital ignited a wave of anti-Western fury across the country.
At least 30 people were killed in protests, including two American soldiers who were killed by an Afghan soldier who joined the demonstrations.
By my count, at least six Americans have been killed in this latest eruption of violent jihad.
"After the first step of a profound apology, there must be a second step ... of disciplinary action," Jan Kubis, special representative for the U.N. secretary-general in Afghanistan, told a news conference.
"Only after this, after such a disciplinary action, can the international forces say 'yes, we're sincere in our apology'," added Kubis, without elaborating on what action should be taken.
Obama, in a letter of apology to Karzai last week, said the burning of copies of the Koran had been "inadvertent" and an "error".
Distancing the United Nations from the anti-Western uproar, Kubis lamented the attack on a U.N. compound in Kunduz province in the north last week, which angry demonstrators charged with weapons. U.N. staff was relocated around the country.
"We were not the ones who desecrated the holy Koran," Kubis said. "We deeply, deeply, profoundly respect Islam."
I don't know if that cuts it. Shouldn't Kubis have said the UN "deeply, deeply, deeply, deeply, deeply, profoundly, profoundly" respects Islam?
In some of the toughest language yet from an international organization over the Koran burnings, Kubis added:
"We were very hurt that the international military allowed the desecration of the Koran. We rejected and condemned this act, it doesn't matter that it was a mistake.".
Behold what is perhaps the most advanced state of dhimmitude. Here we see the dhimmi -- Jan Kubis and the UN hierarchy -- mimic perfectly the perpetual aggrievement of Islam. Islam's aggrievenment becomes their own aggrievment, indeed, becomes even more important than any by now atavistic concept of Western justice and reason, as they draw power from the obviously more kinetic Islamic position. Because this whole affair is, and must be understood as, a barely concealed power play. It is a power play thinly disguised by the Islamic pose of victimhood. Such feigned victimhood becomes a trap for the " perpetrator" of the perceived aggrievement -- in this case, the US military. Falling for the trap, as we in the West do time and time again, means accepting these intemperate, immoral and murderous manifestations of Islamic dementia in the same way that a "co-dependent" family member accepts and accommodates a mentally sick relative's manifestations of dementia in the home in order to create or preserve some measure of family peace or quiet; in order to stop the outburst, to tamp down the rage and violence, to make it all better -- even if "better" is always just a lull before the next demented power play.
And so the co-dependent USA attempts to assuage this latest Islamic outburst by taking an array of co-dependent steps that come under the rubric of apology, of restitution, of making it all "better." Just as such actions bring a co-dependent family member more closely into the behavioral orbit of the sick family member, they also bring the US more closely into the behavioral Islamic orbit -- the orbit regulated by Islamic law. It forces the "perpetrator" into accepting the sacredness of an inanimate object; it forces the "perpetrator" into accepting the Islamic position that a Christian or Jew is unfit (unclean) to dispose of the sacred thing without desecretating it. It forces the "perpetrator" to accept the Islamic belief that such "desecration" consitutes a crime of capital proportions.
It forces the "perpetrator" to act Islamic.
The call from the U.N. Assistance Mission in Afghanistan for action come after Karzai demanded the Koran burners -- whom he said were American soldiers -- be put on public trial and punished.
NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) says any disciplinary action "deemed necessary" would be taken by U.S. authorities after a thorough review of the facts in an investigation.
Results from separate investigations by NATO and Afghan authorities into the Koran burnings last month are expected soon. New protests could erupt if the investigation teams are seen as too soft on the Koran burners.
Islamic blackmail which we may expect to be justified and celebrated by dhimmi such as Jan Kubis.
The Koran desecrations are also believed to have spurred a 25-year-old policeman to kill two high-ranking American officers inside the Interior Ministry.
The attack has raised questions about NATO's strategy of replacing large combat unit with advisers as the alliance tries to wind down the war.
How about American janissaries?
