Qods day (Jerusalem day) is celebrated throughout the muslim world.

With a tip of the hat to, I would like to show you how some (not all) muslims celebrate it. 

Then there is ahmadinejad in particular -- you know, he's the guy who says he is misquoted about wanting to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.  When you look at the graphic, please note the sign below his podium.

Happy Qods day everyone.  Feeling warm and fuzzy?  Feeling safer?

This is what the west is up against.  Read it again, look long and hard at those pictures and understand what the west in general, and Israel in particular, are up against.
