Jihadists voices from Hell (Islamic world) are the most popular... so, the muslim peoples themselves (Sunni and Shiite alike) is so 'moderate' as their 'heroes' and idols...

Nelson Ascher:

Leftists intellectuals (Chomsky, Hobsbawn, Vidal, Sontag) 'translate' Jihad statements:

When Bin Laden launches war on "jews, crusaders, christians", his words are translated as 'zionists, conservatives, capitalists'.

When a clerig makes sure "homossexuals, adulteress females, no-beard men and no-veil women deserves die by stoning", the unique interpretation to his sermon is 'a metaforic-metaphysic attack against Hollywood and George Bush'.

And that classic sentence which the Afgan mujaheedin Maulana Inyadullah said to a reporter "Americans like movies and Pepsi-Cola, but we really like death." means 'Proletarians worldwide, unite you!'

Nelson Ascher is a conservative Brazilian journalist, essayist and poet.
