Bin Laden: Cartoons Worse Than Murdering Children

A full translation of the new bin Laden tape is available here, but this passage, also noted by Power Line, is particularly striking:

Although our tragedy in your killing of our women and children is a very great one, it paled when you went overboard in your unbelief and freed yourselves of the etiquettes of dispute and fighting and went to the extent of publishing these insulting drawings.

This is the greater and more serious tragedy, and reckoning for it will be more severe.

If you were to grant bin Laden’s accounting of American atrocities, you are left with the fact in the Islamist mindset, drawing silly cartoons of Mohammed is a graver offense that massacring women and children. Obviously, nothing that comes from bin Laden should shock us, but it’s always jarring to be reminded of the evil disregard for human life exhibited by our enemies.
