Believe it or not - but my little video of the Flying Terrorist has been a major hit on the Internet - esp. youtube.com. It is ranked 19th in this month youtube popularity chart (in section People and Blogs) at around 255.000 hits.
The same Flying Terrorist clip was watched around 60.000 times via some kind of Dutch server. So that makes a total of around 315.000 hits. Not bad.
Just two short - and final - comments on The Flying Terrorist.
Lot's of people thought the Flying Terrorist was hilarious, funny, way to go etc. Well, those politically incorrect people did not get the point. I'm really getting a litle bit tired of those jokes like "oh, he just did not reach his 72 virgins". Five people even dubbed my video and put their own version on youtube with silly music under it (It's raining men - hallelujah).
Politically correct people though claimed they were "disgusted" or "sick" after viewing the clip. Their armchair remarks went, mostly, like this: 'Even if it is a terrorist, it is still a human being and - thus - a terrible thing to show his death on the Internet.' Or: "What you call a terrorist, others call a freedom fighter."
To those people I can only say: You guys for sure did not get the point. Because, yes, there IS a difference between the death of a terrorist and the death of an innocent civilian. Absolute evil and absolute good might not exist in this world - but there is a difference between a culprit and a victim, between action and reaction. There IS a difference between the Nazi bombings of Rotterdam, Guernica, London and the Allied bombings of Dresden or Berlin. A difference between Apartheid state terror and ANC attacks. A difference between advancing Serb forces and the defending Bosnian Army. A difference between 9/11 and the War on Terror. A difference between Fatah al Islam murderers (Flying terrorist guy) and the regular Lebanese army trying to stop them.
If you refuse to see that difference, well, then we better all just stay home so the motherf****** in this world can start their party. Or like Edmund Burk, an Irish statesman, once said: 'When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle'
