OK To Kill the Children

A Muslim leader in Australia has told his flock that when Muslims are engaged in jihad, it is perfectly ok to kill children.

That's what we're dealing with in the war on terror. Wonder whether any of the leftists who are so concerned about the accidental deaths of Iraqi or Afghan children will be able to summon the energy to condemn this? Somehow, I just don't think so.

Plenty of Iraqi and Afghan children have died in the last 5-6 years.

To the extent that's true, it's been by accident, not by design. Is that an irrelevant distinction to the left?

Last summer Carol advocated cluster bombing Palestinian mothers and their children. I fail to see a distinction.

The distinction is that Carol isn't in the military calling the shots. What she may have called for in the past has nothing whatsoever to do with distinctions between the intentional murder of children by terrorists and the accidental, or collateral damage, deaths of children or other civilians during war. But hey! nice try to both of you, ETC and OSO in trying to make connections where they don't exist. You both need to try harder to make your lame moral equivalencies work.
