JWR’s Comment: <Sarcasm On>Oh, well, now that we’ve been told that the polizei were just being friendly “Community Caretakers” when they kicked in that door, we can all rest easy–knowing that our rights are secure, and that we’ll live happily ever after… <Sarcasm Off> (Actually, this is gross display of the inverted logic of the jackbooted police in Terry Gilliam’s epic dystopic film Brazil [4].

The recent terrorist attack on the Nazareth Restaurant struck close to home. Many in our community know the owner and his family personally. His daughter recently posted the following:

“Yesterday when Shafi (on staff at Naz) came into Nazareth Restaurant & Deli all dressed up, my mom who was volunteering said, “You look so nice- do you have another job?” He said no, that he had just received his American citizenship! How exciting!! Just a few days before, Shafi was the guy who grabbed the baseball bat to defend the customers in the midst of the attack. My dad said that when he got his citizenship back in the late 80s, his friends gave him an apple pie, a toy car, and a baseball bat. Tonight we will present him with one of his own! (smile emoticon) I look forward to getting to know him more! We’re so happy for him”

God truly works in mysterious ways!
