"Quiet As A Mouse"
In an interview with The Sun that is recounted in today's New York Post, Georgy Farniyev, a survivor of the al-Qaeda attack on School No. 1 in Beslan, Russia, tells a horrifying tale:
It [a detonated bomb] didn't do anything to me, not even a scratch ...
I sat up and was dazed while everyone was screaming. In the commotion, I got up and asked one of the terrorists if I could get water ...
I knew I had to get out. I went back to the gym ... and saw terrible, terrible things. There were body parts, arms and legs, everywhere and wounded people screaming for help as the gunmen carried on firing at them.
Everyone in the area where I had been sitting was dead. I crawled through it all and managed to lie down by a window, staying as quiet as I could--quiet as a mouse.
Georgy is 10-years-old.
He escaped despite shrapnel wounds to his left arm and right leg.
Responding to the Beslan school massacre, Omar Bakri Mohammed, an Islamic "cleric" in London, said that taking women and children hostage is peachy with him and that such a course of action by his fellow Islamovermin in Britain would be justified:
In an interview with The Sunday Telegraph, Mr Mohammed said: "If an Iraqi Muslim carried out an attack like that in Britain, it would be justified because Britain has carried out acts of terrorism in Iraq. As long as the Iraqi did not deliberately kill women and children, and they were killed in the crossfire, that would be okay.
And the U.S. State Department thinks a political solution by Putin's government will stop the kind of people who wounded Georgy and slaughtered his classmates and teachers? Sheesh.
