    And nothing duplicitous about the translations provided by MEMRI. They couldn't translate it if the people whom they were translating weren't saying it.

    I'm glad about that; I was Naval Aircrew (aviation antisubmarine warfare technician), and hunted Soviet subs during the Cold War. I probably would look no better riding in a tank than Dukakis did (although I did vote for him). But you have a problem; Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein make Willie Horton pale into pastels by comparison, but you're not attacking me for paroling them, and not even for criticizing them, and others of their Islamofascist ilk, but for allowing them and others like them to speak revealingly 'for' themselves. As Ayatolluh Ruholluh Khomeini said:
    But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world. Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those
    (who say this) are witless.
