Now I've often been accused of being unfair to murderous Islamic terrorists, and I suppose that's largely true. So after examining my conscience I have decided to make the initial award of The Savant Prize for Public Service to, well, that's a bit of a problem because I don't know his name.
But credit where credit is due, I say.
Here's the story from Iraq according to the International Herald Tribune:
"A man stood up during Friday prayers and began loudly arguing with the preacher"
Mark one for the recipient.
"He raised an assault rifle and shot the imam first before spraying those kneeling around him"
You got to admit that he has, well had, a keen sense of priorities
And then, the piece de resistence, when he thoughtfully rounded off the whole touching episode
"when the ammo was finished he blew himself up"
Ah yes. Where would we be without the Religion of Peace, hey?
In the same edition I see that the US is allowing an extra 30,000 Iraqis immigrate. Just what you need over there now I'd say.
