I’m not sure what to make of this video (thanks to Eric). Maybe it’s a couple of earnest jihadists in America, one of whom is probably an American convert to Islam. Or maybe it’s just a couple of idiots trying to be outrageous, and demonstrating that jihad chic has come to campus among those who fancy themselves rebellious and perverse — like those who once proudly included a Charles Manson record in their collection. If anyone has any further information about the identity of these two, and where “Oiler Town” is — Houston? — please let me know.
In the meantime, it’s worth noting that, as far as I know, no group other than jihadists have celebrated Cho Seung Hui as a hero. And even if this video is a spoof or parody, neither boy says anything in it that a real jihadist would not say and has not said — least of all the prayer that Allah would continue to allow Americans to be slaughtered.
UPDATE: Marisol tells me that “Oiler Town” is probably Edmonton, Alberta — home of the hockey Oilers, eh?
