The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

When Stupid People Attack

I had to steal a link from Brian for this, but I could not pass this up.
It would seem that two Indonesian members of Jemaah Islamiyah were on their way to Syria but were arrested in Malaysia. Here is one of the reasons why they got caught.

"They said themselves that they were heading to Syria to meet with a larger terrorist network, but we are not sure what group they are referring to," National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Anton Bachrul Alam told a media conference.

Click below fold for more intellectualityness below fold...And for the record, just because someone graduated from college, does not make them smart or less inclined to Islamic terrorism...

Agus is reportedly the leader of JI in Poso, Central Sulawesi, which has in the past been the scene of deadly religious violence. JI is said to have links with al-Qaeda. Agus, who graduated from Airlangga University's School of Medicine, in Surabaya, East Java, is also believed to have served as a doctor for fugitive terrorist Noordin M. Top.

And here is proof that brokering peace deals with Islamic terrorists really works!!

(National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Anton Bachrul) Alam said the police had been searching for Agus and Abdul over their alleged involvement in the religious violence in Poso between 2000 and 2002 that claimed more than 2,000 lives and displaced 100,000 others.

The conflict ended in a truce that was mediated by a government team led by Jusuf Kalla, currently Indonesia's vice president. However, sporadic bomb attacks and assassinations continue to plague several areas of Central Sulawesi. Alam said Agus was directly involved in some of the worst violence in Central Sulawesi, including the mutilation of three female high school students, bombings at Tentena and a robbery at a shop selling gold in Poso.

On 28 May 2005, bombs exploded at a market in Tentena, a coastal town near Poso, killing 22 people. "He was involved in the mutilation of the three female high school students that occurred near Poso on Nov. 29, 2005." "And in February 2006 he was involved in a gold store robbery in Poso, in which the owner of the store was shot and killed. Around three kilograms of gold were stolen," Alam said.

So, how's that peace deal working out for ya? hmmm? Great. Glad to hear it.

A college education certainly doesn't stave off hatred and violent tendencies. But most disturbing, imo, is that a higher education also doesn't always elicit logic and rationality. There are too many learned muslims who still worship a man who raped women and children, savagely murdered countless innocent people, and who stole property for his own selfish gains.
