Al Qaeda Gives Tacit Endorsement to Bloomberg

Michael Yon gives us the news :

Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) had tarnished its name here by publicly attacking and murdering children, videotaping beheadings, all while imposing harsh punishments on Iraqi civilians found guilty of violating morality laws prohibiting activities like smoking. The AQI installed Sharia court had sanctioned the amputation of the two “smoking fingers” for those who violated anti-smoking laws.

I guess Bloomberg’s New York is the secret template for the Caliphate, huh? I guess the next step is to put those who eat the wrong sort of fat into a large pot with organic vegetables and boil them in filtered water…

UPDATE: Instapundit had the same reaction , heh.
