Atta Boys

Charles Johnson links to a disturbing piece by one Muadh bin Abdullah Al-Madani called "The Nineteen Lions", which to put it mildly, glorifies the 9/11 hijackers. Here's one representative paragraph:

The minutes move too slowly, you are eager for the Paradise: finally the time arrives. Without a glance you rise from your seat and dart to the cockpit. Securing control of the plane, you set your sights on your target. As the building approaches, you look about you at the faces of your brothers in arms and all you see is the blazing light shining off their faces. Attempting to conceal your delight you direct the plane towards the North Tower, with a prayer you shout ‘Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest)’ as you graciously glide into the Tower, obliterating an Idol of the Modern Age.

I decided not to even link to the site, but you can read excerpts or the entire essay from the LGF post. I noted the quote on the Clear Guidance web site masthead, presumably "guidance" for aspiring jihadists:

"Follow and do not innovate, for you have been given that which is sufficient and every innovation is misguidance" - ibn mas'ood.

I wonder if this means they're not allowed to step up to wireless Internet technology, or the new picture cell phones for the next death mission. This movement is no less hateful than the KKK, and no less demented than the Manson Family. What I don't hear a lot of are the voices of the moderate Muslims that are supposed to be out there in great numbers, repudiating this sick version of the faith.
