Default “Jesus kill Mohammed!” chanted the interpreter. “Jesus kill Mohammed!”

Jesus killed Mohammed:
The crusade for a Christian military


The rest of that Easter was spent under siege. Insurgents held off Bravo Company, which was called in to rescue the men in the compound. Ammunition ran low. A helicopter tried to drop more but missed. As dusk fell, the men prepared four Bradley Fighting Vehicles for a “run and gun” to draw fire away from the compound.

Humphrey headed down from the roof to get a briefing. He found his lieutenant, John D. DeGiulio, with a couple of sergeants. They were snickering like schoolboys. They had commissioned the Special Forces interpreter, an Iraqi from Texas, to paint a legend across their Bradley’s armor, in giant red Arabic script.

“What’s it mean?” asked Humphrey.

“Jesus killed Mohammed,” one of the men told him. The soldiers guffawed. JESUS KILLED MOHAMMED was about to cruise into the Iraqi night.

The Bradley, a tracked “tank killer” armed with a cannon and missiles—to most eyes, indistinguishable from a tank itself—rolled out. The Iraqi interpreter took to the roof, bullhorn in hand. The sun was setting. Humphrey heard the keen of the call to prayer, then the crackle of the bullhorn with the interpreter answering—in Arabic, then in English for the troops, insulting the prophet. Humphrey’s men loved it. “They were young guys, you know?” says Humphrey. “They were scared.” A Special Forces officer stood next to the interpreter—“a big, tall, blond, grinning type,” says Humphrey.

“Jesus kill Mohammed!” chanted the interpreter. “Jesus kill Mohammed!”

Not PC, but I think it's funny as hell.

I could say something really bad, like...


Let them fight it out in a cage match - Jesus vs. Mohammed

(Go Jesus!)


Winner takes all the souls.

Winner supplies pizza and beer.

Everyone rejoices.

Well if you think about it, you want to draw fire away from a compound thats a pretty smart way of insureing that vechicle is going to get shot at... Pretty dam creative if you ask me.

Plus they'll all want a piece of that tank and that will goad them into giving away their position.

Funny thing how it may or may not be seen as kosher here in the states.

However, those same people in Iraq that get so offended, will walk into a mosque, start shooting, then when the mosque is bombed, will circulate flyers that the evil American devils are bombing places of worship.

I don't like the name of my savior being used that way... but I sure do understand it.

dont we have allies in iraq who worship mohammed who also dont bomb mosques or spread propoganda.

on the flipside....

maybe the driver is just Jesus Gutierrez from San Diego, thinking of all the Mohammed Atta's of the world.

im not gonna take it the wrong way.

atleast it didnt say Jesus rape and kill Mohammed and then pillage the village.

(that coulda been taken the wrong way.)
