#1 I wonder if Newsweek and the Democrats give a fat rat's ass that their tawdry political grandstanding just got 50+ Londoners murdered?

I doubt they'd even understand that question...

#2 Did the story get them killed, or would the good Mr. Tanweer have come up with some other excuse? I don't mean to excuse the nastiness at Newsweek et al, but these foot soldiers of jihad don't really need any reasons. Andalusia would be enough, or some obscure reference about infidel Arabs in the Koran.

#3 Since Tanweer argued with relatives, it is obvious that he had to make a case for his actions and that he was himself satisfied with it.
How large a role the Newsweek claims played in this decision is unknowable, but it would have to be significant since he mentioned it specifically.

Culpable incitement to violence is a common-law crime. The Allied Tribunal addressed that very issue during the trial of Julius Streicher at Nuremberg. Streicher was charged with inciting genocide. The conclusion was that he was not as guilty as those who acted on his incitement, but he was still guilty enough to go to the gallows.

To be culpable, an act of incitement must generally display depraved disregard for both the truth and the consequences of the incitement. Newsweek is culpable in that the story was a wilfull fabrication, and that those concocting it either knew or reasonably could have known that it would incite violence.

#4 Do you think this little tidbit will be mentioned by the MSM?

Me neither. They will ignore it or spin it as 'koran descecration motivated bomber'....
