Insult to WWII heroes: Graves of British troops smashed and desecrated by Libyan Islamists...
The U.K. Daily Mail ^ | 02/25/2012 | Staff

Posted on 02/26/2012 8:22:12 AM PST by Outlaw Woman

A furious mob has desecrated dozens of Commonwealth War Graves in a Libyan cemetery amid continuing fury in the Middle East over the burning of the Koran by U.S. soldiers. Headstones commemorating British and Allied servicemen, killed during World War II campaigns in the Western Desert, lay smashed and strewn across Benghazi Military Cemetery. Protesters rampaged through site on Friday, despite efforts by America to calm tensions sparked when it emerged U.S. soldiers had burned Muslim holy books in a pile of rubbish at a military base in Afghanistan.

President Obama has apologised to President Karzai...

I've scanned the major alphabet LSM and not one has this story. Again, we are forced to go to foreign news sources to find out what the hell is going on. Of course this is the British cemetary but they are(?) (were) our allies. Their blood soaked the ground during WWII along with Americans and this story should be in our newspapers/news sources.

This was posted last nite but it is an important story and clearly shows who the enemy is and imo the middle east situation is the result of a pandering, muslim madman.

It is now open season on the West and our Military.

Why are we repeatedly called on to apologize and grovel about our insults to Islam, such as this Koran burning, but, Islam is never called upon to apologize for their insults and behavior towards the western world?

Why is it ok for Muslims to go on rampages against perceived insults to their faith, but Islam is never expected to account for their insults to the rest of us?

Actually, they freed it from brutal Italian rule. But who’s parsing?

Well? Does anyone expect anything different from the practitioners of the Religion of Piece er Peace? Besides, I fully expect the president of the disUnited States to make an apology some time this week for the British for something they did in the distant past.

In the 1985 movie, “Back to the Future,” when the Arab terrorists attack Marty and Doc at the Pine Tree Mall, they are called “Lybian nationalists.” I’ve always believed that the script had been changed for political reasons from “Lybian terrorists.” Pure PC. We dare not tell the truth.

I should think just being a Saracen would be insult enough. No amount of apologies could change that.

Most of the fighting in The Western Desert occurred in Libya.The Libyans themselves however were more kindly disposed to the Germans.

It's not that Muslims should apologize nor is it that we should not apologize. These are the kind of things we should be doing to them. Death enemies don't (and shouldn't) play nice.

I think that if someone could invent a cheap, convenient sized spray can of aerosolized pig fat, they would make a killing. Better than pepper spray, better than a gun. Would make them unclean in the eyes of their evil master.

The NYT has a story today about the Boko Haram in Nigeria. It praises them for taking up the cause of the poor against the government. You know, killing the one percent and their police. Not once does it mention that the primary target and most of the 900+ killed have been Christians attending church. They struck again this morning bombing a church and killing two. Just when you think press bias and outright lies cannot get any more open, the MSM surprises you.

I'm old enough to remember respecting the New York Times... and the press in general. For me, their bias is not only disgusting - it's sad. Thanks for sharing ... I would not have known the truth without your comments.

You sound like my brother. He thinks this summer is going to get nasty.

Our men and women are being attacked and the order should be: FIRE AT WILL!

That would resolve it pronto. Instead we are forced to watch the marxist muslim grovel and apologize. It is vomit inducing.

Libya is a completely scumbag outfit blessed for some unknowable reason with some of the finest crude in the world in inexhaustible supply.

The greatest failure of Italian Colonial policy was their inability to find that oil, which would have literally changed world history. As it is now, the only livable places in this ugly place are those areas which the Italians, who were nowhere near tough enough on these freaks, did develop.

We actually had AF Bases there when it was ruled by King Idris, who was overthrown by the Khaddafi nut case. If ever a place needed to be a colony, this piece of camel crap is it. Now, lemme tell you about people who live there ... well, they NEED to live there and please God, stay there. Maybe they could become a Albanian Colony.

The over all opinion of the Libyans (Arabs) during WW II was thieves and cutthroats who could not be trusted, and that opinion was expressed on both the allied and axis sides.

As far as I can determine with everything I've read, the Arabs have been nothing to history but destroyers and thieves of other cultures; taking credit for things they had nothing to do with but rather stealing. They are uncivilized and they bring their savagery with them wherever they go. Case in point that freak in CA that had a TV station for ragheads which was aired on Verizon’s lineup. The freak stabbed his wife and then BEHEADED her in his office because she wanted a divorce.

They may ‘appear’ in westernized clothing but ... a piece of sh*t wrapped up in a gift box is still a piece of sh*t.

"For over a thousand years, Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of a triumph - a tumultuous parade. In the procession came trumpeters and musicians and strange animals from the conquered territories, together with carts laden with treasure and captured armaments. The conqueror rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children, robed in white, stood with him in the chariot, or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the conqueror, holding a golden crown, and whispering in his ear a warning: That all glory is fleeting."

You're planning on going to the Libyan cemetery and shooting people? Maybe join the Army? If you're talking about shooting random people in the United States you're nuts... and need to get a grip on reality. We're fighting ideas here - we're NOT killing innocent neighbors who happen to be Muslim.

And my apology to you if you were going to join the Army and request being stationed at a Libyan cemetery....

This story is featured nowhere obvious, it seems, on the US MSM. It is, however, prominent on Al-Jazeera, of all places, where the story in recounted in detail and it’s one of the ‘most viewed’ stories today:

Osama liked watching pictures of the 9/11 New York attacks too. Maybe it’s a hot news story because the folks watching are feeling glee... Cultures where men are seen in streets jumping up and down, screaming, carrying coffins etc are not like us - and ‘thank God’, we’re not like them.
