In Israel, two wings of the progressive movement are set to clash, and hopefully take each other out in a blaze of stupid, while the rest of us point and laugh… the environmentalist movement and the jihad movement are about to go to war. Or, if they had any shreds of intellectual honesty, they would.
And, oh, is it funny to watch.
Sheikh Raed Salah, leader of the northern branch of the so-called “Islamic Movement in Israel,” was recently arrested by Israeli authorities, in connection with an arson attack in southern Israel.
According to Israeli news network Arutz Sheva, Salah allegedly set fire to a forest of eucalyptus trees, to protest a Jewish National Fund project in the area—and to drive out any infidelic koala bears that may have taking part in pilgrimages, apparently.
Protesting a forest restoration project in the Negev region, Salah did his best “Disco Inferno” impression and set fire to the forest, in the name of squatters hoping that the land remains barren and infertile for more, potential Muslim squatters to “return”, at some indefinite time in the future.
Salah was arrested by highway patrolmen, two months after being released from serving a five-month prison sentence for attacking a police officer, and a few weeks after a massive forest fire in the Carmel region of Israel, which killed 44 people. During the Carmel fire, Islamic terrorists went on an arson spree, distracting firefighters from the forest fire.
Now, this puts us in a sticky situation, doesn’t it?
On one hand, we have an Islamist, who we’re told by progressives that we should embrace and have group-hugs with. On the other hand, Islamists are attacking Mother Nature, whom we are told is dying, due to the evil alliance between mankind, Dr. Seuss’s Once-ler, and the Flood from Halo.
Progressive darling Salah—a man working to end the existence of the Israeli state—attacked Earth Goddess Gaia, setting fire to Her forests. Clearly, Salah should be punished for burning down the forests, which belong not to Israel, but to the abstract concept that some progressives call “Nature.”
Environmentalists be upset about the march of jihad across Gaia’s bosom? I mean, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, DC released “the most toxic polluting cloud ever recorded,” according to progressive birdcage-liner UK Independent.
According to government scientists, “unprecedented levels” of acids, sulphur, particulates, and heavy metals were released into the wild… in other words, when radical Islamists attacked us, they were really attacking Mother Earth.
If there’s one thing you should keep in mind, radical Islam is not only hazardous to your health, now it’s an environmental issue, too.
In case anyone else wants to take up the banner of protecting Mother Earth by stopping Islamic jihad and protecting Israel’s right to exist, here’s an idea for a slogan, provided free of charge: “Save the Trees, Defeat Terrorism.”
