If I knew nothing else about Islamists, their banning of beer would be enough.

"No arts; no letters; no society; and which is worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death: and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short."

When you outlaw beer only outlaws . . . no, wait . . . I'll keep working on that one.

I thought beer was proof that God loves us, so why ban it?

Wherever they go, Islamists are the proverbial turd in the punchbowl.

God may love us, but Allah hates us.

You can have my S.N. Pale Ale when you pry the bottle from my cold dead hands.

I have always wanted to visit Timbuktu, but I will go nowhere where they don't serve alcohol (an Arabic word, by the way). Alcohol is a mark of civilization. Dangerous places don't necessarily denote barbarism and can be quite fun, if you can get a buzz on.

I've been busy lately and missed the stories of outrage over French imperialists and their bombing poor people just because they have a different culture.
