How a Burial at Sea Baptized the New Face of Islam

Scott Ott makes this observation in the latest episode of Trifecta on PJTV:

“Either Usama bin Laden is NOT a Muslim leader, and does not represent the vast majority of decent, faithful people who cling to the teachings of Mohammed — or he IS a Muslim who followed Mohammed’s teachings to carry out brutal jihad — smearing office walls with blood, filling the air with the acrid stench of burning human flesh.

“Mr. President, you can’t have it both ways. By ordering U.S. military personnel to administer Islamic burial rites — gently washing the body, swaddling it in cloth and intoning prayers over it — you have baptized this heinous heathen into the religion with which you claim we are not at war. It’s hard to imagine a more vicious insult. By official order of the president of the United States, what is soon be the most viewed photograph in history, will be, for all intents and purposes, the face of Islam.”
