I hope Tom doesn't apologize either

Tancredo: No apology

After seeing the blogs of the right get all hot and bothered about Rep. Tom Tanscredo's comments on WFLA-AM in Orlando the other day.

"Colorado congressman told a radio show host that the U.S. could "take out" Islamic holy sites if Muslim fundamentalist terrorists attacked the country with nuclear weapons.

Rep. Tom Tancredo made his remarks Friday on WFLA-AM in Orlando, Florida. His spokesman stressed he was only speaking hypothetically.

Talk show host Pat Campbell asked the Littleton Republican how the country should respond if terrorists struck several U.S. cities with nuclear weapons.

"Well, what if you said something like -- if this happens in the United States, and we determine that it is the result of extremist, fundamentalist Muslims, you know, you could take out their holy sites," Tancredo answered.

"You're talking about bombing Mecca," Campbell said.

"Yeah," Tancredo responded."

You know lately, I've notice a lot of bloggers on the right taking the "high road", you know, on some things, like rising above the fray.

See Michelle Malkin's and Captain Ed's response here and here respectively. Also Hugh Hewitt here (sheesh! Hugh, take a drink of water son!).

First, I do not understand those who always try to divide Islam (religion of peace) and Islam (kill the infidels), into two camps. True that any religion has an extremist side. However these two supposed sides of Islam are really not different, but just two sides of the Moon - one dark, the other light. Any doubts? Try reading the Quran, ALL of it, as I did in college. You see both facets. If one would visit MECCA as I have, it is place where you will see many extremist groups congregated - as well as the non extremist. Check out this site and get some education on Islam perhaps you don't know about.

Moreover, Islam, more than any other world religion is one that advocates violence to "spread the word. In fact, to quote a friend: "there are more than 100 verses in the Qur'an advocating the use of violence to spread Islam. In the Qur'an, Allah commands Muslims, 'Take not the Jews and Christians as friends....Slay the idolaters [non-Muslims] wherever ye find them.... Fight against believe not in Allah...' (Surah 5:51; 9:5,29,41, etc..)

This is in the Quran. Even though some Muslims would shrink from it, it is there nonetheless.

Lashawn Barber weighs in and agrees he shouldn't apologize. Instapunk follows my thoughts a little on this as well.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
