A CIA Coup: Intercepted Communications

From a foreign friend of mine:

Memo to Kim Jong Un: Al Qaeda is releasing a movie depicting you as a fat-assed infidel and a 198-pound weakling who can’t even shoot unarmed civilians without help from his lickspittle staff; a disgrace to the Kim Dynasty.

Memo to Al Qaeda: North Korean State media is publishing pictures of the Prophet Muhammad saturated in pig’s blood and being trampled by hordes of haj-seeking pilgrims.

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    I caught a small piece of an interview this morning on NPR while driving to work this morning. It was on the David Folkenflik (they have the most interesting names on NPR) segment of Morning Edition. He was interviewing a French Muslim (didn’t catch the name) who was described as a friend of some of the staff members of Charlie Hebdo.
    He was asked about the response of Muslims in France in relation to the shootings, and since I see a similar question asked often on this blog, I tried to repeat his answer over and over all the way to work.
    When asked, this guy responded that he felt no Muslim should have to apologize for what happened. They shouldn’t have to prove to anyone that they don’t support these actions, or that Islam supports these actions. They shouldn’t have to say or do anything.
    He seemed to me to be upset at the questioner. When pressed as to why he feels this way he blurted out that the men involved are fanatics, not Muslims. So the anger should be directed at fanatics, not the religion the follow, and to do otherwise is offensive.
    The man being interviewed also said he had emailed his friend at the magazine and warned them that depicting the prophet is severely offensive to Muslims, they should think about what they were doing. However, he also said he felt they had the right to publish what they wanted.

    Anyway, maybe this is a small part of the answer as to why the voice of the Muslim people seems so quiet in regards to terrorism. I think it’s a bit strange to think this way, as everyone else on the planet has no problem condemning such activities.
    Could you imagine if President Obama decided to forgo any words on the subject? People would at least be whispering, but likely yelling, “What the hell, man!!??”

  2. Thanks, McHenry. I caught the same NPR piece. The French Muslim in question is simply in denial. I am writing an essay on his topic right now, the denial, the Muslims’ and that of Western liberals, I mean. A young Muslim woman who is dear to my heart and whom you may know says the same thing: “So-called Islamic terrorism is no more more my problem than yours.”
