Become a terrorist and see the world


Strikes me as utterly insane – something that would appeal only to those who’ve been sipping the kool aide for a month of Sundays.

I’m talking, of course, about the Irish government’s plan to reform its country’s worst murderers and terrorists by giving them an all-expenses paid trip to Poland. Why? To tour Auschwitz, the most infamous of the Nazi death camps.

The idea is, said Frank Higgens of the Belfast Transition Training Center – who’s paying for the trip – was that they wanted the murderers to see what tragic results stem from racist hatred.

I dunno – seems to me they might just be giving them some good ideas, instead.

So far, a dozen of Ireland’s most dangerous terrorists have made the trip and another 50 are scheduled to go. In addition to touring Auschwitz, they enjoy cultural events so as to learn more about Poland. They visit Wawel Royal Castle in Krakow and sample traditional Polish food.

Hey – could I go?

But seriously, what is it about terrorists that the world refuses to believe? Why are these vicious killers coddled? Personally, I think a tour of the Texas State Penitentiary at Huntsville might be a better option. Especially those rooms outfitted only with a cot and an IV machine. And make that a one-way tour, by the way.

The Community Organizer is indulging in his own form of insanity on the issue. He wants to bring the al Qaeda-trained jihadists now being held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, into the US and release them among the general population just like regular immigrants.

Did you get that? The US-captured terrorists, who dedicated their lives to killing Americans and destroying Western civilization, will be living free and easy on public assistance in the US – and they didn’t even get the benefit of the tour of Auschwitz!

If you wrote this stuff as fiction, of course, it would never sell. Way too far out.


  1. Interesting and wacky item...but my question is which government came up with this loopy idea....'Irish Government'(Dublin - 26 Counties?) or the 'British Government' (Belfast -British-controlled 6 Counties in Ireland?) Many thanks, Ilan

  2. Shalom!
    Coddling? The world stands in fear of the terrorists and is SCARED to do anything abut them. I don' think that GOOD ideas can be had at Auschwitz, certainly wrong ones though. While I think that the Texas Penitentiary at Huntsville sounds good, I prefer the solution of that Mad Woman of Chaillot had a better solution.

  3. HA! Good one, Trader Joe's Joe! The Mad Women of Chaillot, indeed. My first laugh of the day, good deal!

    Although you've made me think: maybe we should turn to Lorena Bobbit for some practical advice....

    Good question, Barbara/Ilan. I don't know the answer -- you might!
