Oxymoron of the Day
Via LGF, comes this interesting piece from Amir Taheri that gives a thumbnail history of the time-honored Islamic tradition of beheading. Certainly, they did not invent the practice, but the civilized world discarded it hundreds of years ago. That is, except for France which clinged to this barbaric practice until 1977. Perhaps this is the reason than so many Muslims seem to gravitate to France, a country that seems reluctant to discard barbarity such as beheading, and unwilling to embrace civilized concepts such as honor and loyalty.
