Rabbi At Temple Targeted By Explosives Has Sane, Un-American Response
That parcel-terror plot apparently involved explosives being mailed to a couple of Chicago synagogues. You know, becauseChicago synagoguesare very much responsible for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and whatever else (everything) now included in the War Upon the Terror. President Obama says he's "very concerned" and will "keep using robot death drones to drop bombs on wedding parties in Pakistan, due to this serious threat to Liberty." The important thing is howyouwill be further debased during any attempts at holiday travel. After all, toner cartridges with explosives inside them were FedEx'd from Yemen. Isn't that an extremely good reason for your young children to be strip-searched and anally probed by morbidly obese high-school dropouts while you're just trying to fly to Vermont for Christmas?

"We live in a world that contains some people that are hostile to us and we want to respond to that hostility with caution," said Steven Bob, who leads Etz Chaim in Lombard, Illinois. "At the same time, we're not going to go hide in the basement."
"I may say a word or two about this tonight, but I don't think it's worthy of a sermon," he said Friday. "What am I going to say, that I'm opposed to terrorism?"
