A GI in the hills of France takes aim through a rifle scope at a German soldier. Snow cakes the ground and a few bare trees cling to the ground like bony fingers. At the last moment, the German soldier sees his attacker. "Wait,” he cries out in a passable accent, "Ich bin an American citizen.”
The scenario isn’t a particularly implausible one. Any number of Germans did leave to fight on behalf of their country in the first and second world wars. And there was no question of due process on the battlefield. Members of enemy forces who fought against the United States were killed and any precedent set in that regard was set long ago.
Money Jihad 5 October 2011
Before he died, Anwar al-Awlaki influenced the 9/11 hijackers and the Ft. Hood jihadist to perpetrate their attacks on America. Al-Awlaki had maintained or gained sway throughout the Arab world from his hideout in Yemen and his English-language jihadist magazine, Inspire.
In addition to his traditional jihadist message, al-Awlaki, like Osama bin Laden before him, had specifically been a key proponent of the jihad bi-al-mal, the money jihad, against the West. He encouraged theft, trickery, and whatever means are necessary for Muslims in the West to financially sap their hosts and fund the mujahideen in the process.

Take Tunisia's minister for women's affairs. Amidst the mayhem and madness, Lilia Labidi just up and walked out of the United Nations meeting. Unlike Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was "waxing enthusiastic about the success of the Arab uprisings," Labidi's "giddy exposure to the UN rapidly dissipated. Her own appeal to the gathering (of powerful women presidents and secretary of states) for help in consolidating gains for women in Tunisia elicited little reaction."

If Germany left the Eurozone, then Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the others would be in balance, the Euro would fall to its real value and the German Mark would be re-established as a stronger currency alongside the British Pound.
Or is there something that I don't understand?
