Suicide Buggies or The Amish-Al Qaida Connection…


Hey, I’m a live and let live kinda’ guy, and as I get older I’m not even all that political but, some things pique my interest. One of those things is the similarities between the Amish and Al Qaida. Let us explore the the possibilities:

  • Head covering is required for women.
    Head covering is worn by men.
    Men must have beards.
    Both dress odd.
    They both talk funny.
    Both are governed by elders.
    No buttons for the Amish; no buttons on robes.
    Both are very exclusive; no outsiders allowed.
    Both eschew the normal banking system.
    Both are very secretive.
    Both live in the past.
    Both start with the letter “A”.

Wow! They have a lot in common, don’t they? I don’t know. What do you think? I admit I’ve never heard of a “Barn Raising” at a Terrorist Training Camp (or a Barn Leveling, for that matter) but, what do I know?

Just in case, watch out for those “Suicide Buggies”, Ya’ll.
