Torture and Gitmo! (Featuring Stevens Beheading)

Yes. This is my “Crowder” phase. Deal with it. — Ellie Katz

While Crowder makes some good points, and he’s made yet another funny video, I can’t endorse waterboarding or minimize it’s effects. On the one hand, it really depends on the details of a given waterboarding episode.

But in the end, I think I gotta go with Hillel on this, “Whatever is hateful to you, do not do to your brother–that is the whole Torah. All the rest is commentary.” Of course, it could be argued that a jihadi who is out to kill as many Americans or non-Muslims as possible, and has declared his intent to do exactly that, is not my brother. Soooo…I’m still thinking this over.

I’m also concerned about he principle of midah kneged midah — measure for measure. If we endorse torture, then we have no moral standing to argue against it when our people suffer torture at the hands of our enemies.

THIS DAY March 13

Posted by Shiva on March 13, 2009

March 13, 2009: Luton, Britain. A moslem fanatic who yelled vile abuse at British soldiers just back from Iraq has been suspended from his job as a baggage handler at Luton Airport. .

Ahmed was pictured on the front page of yesterday’s Sun holding a banner which read “Butchers of Basra” during the protest. He works for Menzies Aviation and has access to security-sensitive areas at Luton airport.
John Geddes, group company secretary of Menzies Aviation, said today: “We can confirm that Jalal Ahmed is a contracted employee of Menzies Aviation. He is not a full-time employee and has a zero hours contract. “All employees are subject to a five-year criminal record check and airport authority checks before they can be given an airside pass to work on the airport.
Jalal Ahmed passed these checks. “Menzies Aviation has safety and security as its number one priority at all times.
We are carrying out a full internal investigation and until such times as this is complete we have rescinded Jalal Ahmed’s airport pass and he will not be offered any work with us.” A source said last night that Ahmed had already been told not to come to work for a few days “for his own safety”

Well that is the good news, the down side is the fucker will get social benefits
