Due to the recent series of events in the Middle East, we would like to take this opportunity to express our best wishes for the soldiers and the nation whom we have so thoroughly supported throughout this crisis. Therefore, we, the undersigned editors and op-ed writers of the New York Times, wish our troops the very best of luck in crushing the foreign infidels and bringing Dar al-Islam to America.
May America sink into the sea, may the eyes of Americans be gouged out and fed to lions, may the very trees and rocks call out horrible and bloody curses in this jihad, may the religion of peace put all Americans to the sword; yea, even their pets and infant children, for they are the pets and children of monkeys and pigs, may all Americans be sodomized in the netherworlds by hungry jinni and have the scalding water poured onto their bellies day and night until they know no rest or comfort, for this is the command of the heavens.
We ask all of this in the name of Allah, the ever-beneficient, ever-merciful, all-forgiving.
ANTHONY LEWIS (retired)
