Islamism: Sherlock Holmes and the strange case of the exploding airports

The strange behavior of the British government regarding the current attacks in Briatin is documented in this article:

Quote Of The Day: Islamophobia Edition

"Prime Minister Gordon Brown keeps repeating that the attacks have nothing to do with Islam - but, at the same time, keeps inviting "Muslim community leaders" to Downing Street to discuss how to prevent attacks. If the attacks have nothing to do with Islam, why invite Muslim 'leaders' rather than Buddhist monks?"
-- Amir Taheri, NY Post

Among the reasons why Islamists might want to self- and other-destruct in London and Glasgow, why they designed bombs of gasoline and nails and propane that would have killed hundreds if not thousands are these: Salman Rushdie was knighted, civilians have been killed in Afghanistan during fighting against the Taliban, and of course, Britain helped remove a despicable despot in Iraq and is now trying to reestablish order.


All of the suspects in the militant (we won't use the "T" word here) bombings in the UK seem to  be adherents of a certain religion: Dr. Mohamad Asha, Marwa Asha, Bilal Abdullah, Saudi junior doctor, 25, Saudi Junior doctor, 28, Mohammed Hanneef. A remarkable coincidence. What might one conclude from that? However, the attacks have nothing to do with Islam according to the British government. 

Suppose that the list had read, "Dr Amiram Goldowitz, Rotem Goldowitz, Ephraim ben Paz, Israeli Junior doctor, 25, Israeli Junior docter 28, Shlomo ben-Horin." Would the British government insist that the attacks have nothing to do with Israel or with Jews?

"I have reached an indisputable conlusion: All of the perpetrators of these crimes are of the Mohammedan persuasion. I would suggest, inspector LeStrade, that you enquire further into this most remarkable coincidence."

"By gum, Holmes, I think you are on to something there. I shall get my men on it at once. My top operatives shall be on the first packet steamers to Cairo and Kabul."

"My dear LeStrade, I have every confidence in the ability of your excellent men. I am sure they will get to the bottom of the plot soon. However, I would suggest widening the search to Damascus as well.

(After LeStrade has left, Holmes and Watson relax.)

"I say Holmes, astonishing reasoning."

"Elementary, my dear Watson. I perceived that all the gentlemen in question were wearing a peculiar Middle Eastern headress at the time of their apprehension, and screamed, "Allahu Akhbar." 


"My dear Holmes, I am pleased to inform you that the malefactors behind the plot were quickly apprehended in Tehran and Kabul.

"My dear Holmes, the entire British nation owes you a deep debt of gratitude. Her Majest herself has suggested the award of an OBE."

"All in a day's work, my dear LeStrade."

(Music: Rule Britannia)

Ah, those were the good old days, when at least some Englishmen had sense.

Ami Isseroff
