  • The Islamists don’t know what they are doing. Usama bin Laden is a CIA puppet/asset and has benefited America more than he has the Muslim world.

    The Islamists should have awarded Emad Mohamed “Dodi” al-Fayed the Saifullah (Sword of God). al-Fayed was the Egyptian Muslim boyfriend of Princesses Diana. The Queen probably wished Diana rather be dead, than to see her grandchildren have an Egyptian Muslim as their “father.” Somehow, conveniently the Queen got her wish.
