The Point of This Post Isn’t to Show You a Crazy Person…

…the point of this post is to show you how he is treated.

[Guest post by Aaron Worthing; if you have tips, please send them here.]

So here we have a video clip from the indispensible Memri featuring an interview with Walid Muhammed Hajj, a former prisoner at Gitmo, allegedly, and he tells a very, um, interesting story of how the Jooooos used witchcraft against the prisoners there, leading him to say at one point he felt a cat that wasn’t there trying to, um…  penetrate him.  No, that doesn’t make any more sense when he says it.  You can read a transcript of the whole crazy thing, here, but here’s the relevant highlight:

Interviewer: Did they ever use witchcraft on you?

Walid Muhammad Hajj: There was one attempt.

Interviewer: How did they do it?

Walid Muhammad Hajj: Once, when I was sleeping – on the floor, not on a bed – I suddenly felt that a cat was trying to penetrate me. It tried to penetrate me again and again. I recited the kursi verse again and again until the cat left.

Interviewer: But there wasn’t really any cat there?

Walid Muhammad Hajj: Absolutely not.

And okay, that is both weird and a little funny.  And really, is it any surprise that we have rounded up some real nuts at Gitmo?  I mean, I am not the kind of person who typically excuses lunatics from their crimes, so I am willing to concede a few of the people in the terrorist movement are just plain nuts, without excusing them from responsibility.

But this isn’t about the state of mind of this mental midget.  Instead, I want you to look at the interviewer.  Look at how he treats his story seriously and with respect.  This was on Al-Jazeera TV, and they are airing this thing like as if it is a truthful expose, and it went out to millions of Muslims all over the world.  Which feeds into a point I made in a previous post:

Some liberals are fond of claiming that terrorism is born out of oppression, that they are just striking back against those who have wronged them.  But one major flaw in that theory is that a lot of people in that part of the world are so paranoid in their anti-Semitism, that they literally will believe their enemies can and will do anything.  Everything is a Jewish conspiracy.  The rats in their sewers.  A few pigeons crapping on their car.  So naturally other things, like the complete state of crap these economies find themselves in is naturally the Jooos fault, right?  Them and the Americans, naturally.  My point is that stories like this demonstrate that their ability to even perceive actual injustice and assign correct blame is seriously compromised by their paranoid hatred of Jews, yet another reason why their violence is a terrible gauge of the justice of their cause.

And this time I will spare you a picture of the most innocent victim of Islamic terrorism, Shalhevet Pass or anything as horrid as that.  But do remember that these animals think it is appropriate to snipe babies, and shoot them in the head, and what that implies of their understanding of human rights.

But exit question…  Walid says that he felt the cat trying to um, penetrate him, but he says he never saw it.  So, um, how does he know it was a cat?  Did he have a certain, um, familiarity with the sensation?  Would he indeed know the difference between a ghost cat and, say, a ghost dog?  Just askin’.

Update: Appropriately, The Daily Caller has a review of Palestinian involvement in the Holocaust.

Update (II): Thomas Joscelyn gives a little background on this idiot, here.  Hat tip to Allahpundit, who was kind enough to link to this post.  Cool.

By the way, my favorite comment in the thread is from Dustin:

Makes you wonder if he is just mentally ill, and pushed into terrorism by people who like to send the crippled to do their dirty work.

Or perhaps he’s just doing his duty to lie for his cause, and he’s hilariously awful at it.

  1. All cats look gray in the dark, or so I’m told.

  6. Calling these people (if they are truly humanoid) Bat-$hit Crazy, is an insult to bats everywhere.

  8. I guess a lot would depend on if he was a particularity handsome cat, was well endowed and would still respect him in the morning.

  10. Expressing a belief that Joos are witches would put him about 200 years behind the times, which — for his religion — marks him as a progressive, and, therefore, subject to stoning by his fellow Muslims.

  11. Suddendly, in the middle of the interview Walid Muhammad Hajj breaks out in song. It’s Witchcraft!

  14. If I was a member of the IDF, I’d be laughing and thinking that the next war they start with Israel will be their last. When you’ve already achieved victory in the psych warfare before hostilities have broken out, then you’ve won half the battle.

    BTW, why didn’t he mention the sharks with lasers on their heads?

  15. I don’t think that the IDF is laughing at all, Dmac. Crazy people are capable of doing very crazy — and very dangerous — things.

  16. ^I know, Icy – just making a broader point about how if anything goes wrong with anything in the Muslim world, it must be because of the Jooos. They know they can’t combat this kind of mania, so they arm themselves to the teeth instead. So far, so good.
