I don’t often comment on current events. They often turn out not to be what they seem to be, and only some weeks afterwards does the truth start leaking out, and by then, the original “story” is hard to dislodge.
But this one today seems fairly straightforward:
An explosion on a commuter train in St. Petersburg, Russia. Very sad day. Many injured, ten dead (so far). The newspapers have a photo of the man who carried the shrapnel-filled (IEDs) into the train.
Someone wrote: “A terrorist attack is an attack on all humanity.” (Well, so is senseless violence of all kinds, but the point is taken.)
While some grieve, the desert warrior crescent moon god gives his blessings, according to others, such as ISIS, who publicly rejoice and praise the act, according to recorded statements..
While some in the post-Western Liberal culture will continue to find a moral equivalency between one religion and another, one culture and another, the truth is far different:
Now, neither statement that the blonde is saying is quite completely true, and a statements that leave out so much can be easily used to distort the truth and advance a false narrative, but there are two completely different starting points here, two different a prioris, and two different deities.
Two different “blessings.”
