It’s Groundhog Day in the Terror War

It’s Groundhog Day! If you haven’t seen the movie, watch the trailer first.

And now here is today’s Jihad Watch news:

1. Some jihadis somewhere will blow something up and kill some people.
2. In their public statements they will quote Qur’an, invoke Muhammad, and explain that they did it all to advance Islam.
3. Mainstream media stories about the attack will never mention Islam, or Jihad, and will speculate about the desperate poverty and political oppression that led this group to carry out this attack.
4. Obama will lament this “tragedy,” call the attackers “isolated extremists,” and announce a new U.S. aid package for the area they come from, again without ever mentioning Islam or jihad, except to praise the great and noble religion of Islam.
5. I will post the attackers’ public statements here at Jihad Watch.
6. Leftist and Islamic supremacist groups will see #5 and call me an Islamophobe and a bigot, without ever taking notice of #2.

Tune in again tomorrow, when:
