Islamic militants ridicule death of Bush cat
CAIRO, Egypt – Islamic militants posted sarcastic comments on an extremist Web site Tuesday ridiculing a recent announcement by First Lady Laura Bush that the family’s cat had died.
The online comments were unusual on the site that usually focuses on official statements by al-Qaida and other militants. Commentators, who must be registered members of the site, frequently post their opinions, but normally the topics are humorless.
But on Tuesday, one commentator, called Dark-Side, sarcastically urged followers to offer condolences for the cat.
“For God’s sake, could someone tell us where the wake is to be held?” the online commentator wrote.
A few also poked fun at Arab leaders allied with the United States.
See, the whole terrorism murder thing was a bit much anyway. But this?
This is just cold.
