In fact, rage is a good word for what’s going on in the Muslim world over the ‘cartoon’ of Mohammed that was printed in some European newspapers. Mobs have gone into hotels and businesses in Muslim countries looking for Western foreigners (who had absolutely nothing to do with it) to take revenge on for insulting their prophet. They’ve burned the Danish and Norwegian embassies in Syria and tried to storm a U.S. airbase in Afghanistan which resulted in several deaths. The clerics are having a eld day whipping up the crowds at the Friday night sermons, calling for killing and beheading of the in dels and religious war. Some Europeans are actually standing up for themselves and not knuckling under to those who cry about sensitivity. They refuse to apologize. They say there is freedom of speech and expression in their countries.Are the cartoons insulting to Islam? Are they in bad taste and insensitive? Obviously. Was it careless to print them? Yes. But is the violence of the reaction to them appropriate? I’m as sensitive as the next guy, you know. But I’m thinking it’s just about time the rest of the world told Muslims to get over themselves and that we won’t be intimidated by them. If they don’t want cartoons of Mohammed wearing a turban shaped like a bomb, then maybe they should take a good look at themselves and how the rest of the world sees them. I don’t know what the cartoonist was trying to do, but if it was to show Islam in an unfavorable light and Muslims as dangerous extremists, then those who are rampaging around looking for people to take revenge on and burning embassies are proving his point. Based on such reaction, how can anyone wonder why the non-Muslim world sees Muslims as volatile, fanatical, dangerous people? Muslims should look inward and realize that when the world sees suicide bombings against innocent men, women and children, hears the ranting and the calls for death to whoever has insulted Islam lately, sees parents willing to send their children to be suicide bombers and young men and women who believe that killing will get them into paradise, how else should people view them. Where is their outrage when suicide bombers kill innocent people at a wedding in Jordan, blow up subway trains in Madrid and London, when helpless captives are brutally beheaded, when a lm maker has his throat slashed in the name of Islam in Holland, when Muslims kill Muslims in Iraq? Those things don’t upset them. But a cartoon does. T h e K w a j a l e i n H o u r g l a s s The Kwajalein Hourglass They seem to have very selective outrage. Sensitivity is a ne thing. I believe the world would be a far better place if everyone was more sensitive and tolerant of other people and their religions and cultures. Did you hear that, Muslim world? If you wish others to be tolerant of you and respect your religion and culture, how about you try it on for size. How about you quit ranting against the in dels and the Great Satan? How about you shut up the hatred of Israel and the western world and how it’s alright to kill anybody who isn’t Muslim? How about you quit blaming the world for all of your problems and get off your butts and x them yourselves? If you don’t like the way you’re living or the governments you live under, then do something about it instead of spewing hatred at everybody else. I’m tired of being told we have to be sensitive and understanding to people who would like to see me and mine dead and my country destroyed. If their prophet Mohammed has been insulted, Muslims should join the club. Every religion and ethnic group in the world have suffered insults or worse throughout history. How people react to those insults says a lot about them. However, I will admit some cartoons can offend me too. The ‘cartoon’ in the Washington Post sure did. If you haven’t seen it, a Soldier missing both arms and legs is in a hospital bed and Donald Rumsfeld is there saying, “I’ll list your condition as battle-hardened.” The Joint Chiefs of Staff wrote a letter to the editor of that paper and called the cartoon reprehensible. That’s exactly what it was. Almost 2,500 troops have been killed and more than 16,000 severely wounded in Iraq. Men and women missing limbs who were wounded in service to their country are not cartoon characters. They are real and they are suffering real pain and so are their loved ones who have to watch them suffer. Does the Washington Post have the right to print such a cartoon? Yes, of course they do under our constitution. Aren’t they fortunate to live in a country where they won’t

The program is moving to Maui. (Photos by Nell Drumheller)Army News ServicePresident George W. Bush Monday sent to Congress his defense budget for scal year 2007. The budget requests $439.3 billion in discretionary budget authority for the Department of Defense, a 7 percent increase over enacted scal 2006 funding levels. The budget was accompanied by the Report of the Quadrennial Defense Review. This is the rst time the Report of Quadrennial Defense Review and the President’s budget for the Department of Defense have been delivered to Congress together. The QDR, the rst conducted during a time of war, re ects the process of change that has been ongoing in the Department of Defense since 2001, and points the way to the future, establishing strategic priorities and identifying key areas for needed investment. Based on the president’s 2005 National Security Strategy, the QDR outlines the mix of forces and capabilities needed to ful ll the strategy’s stated goals and objectives. While major program adjustments that may result from the QDR will be re ected more fully in the budgets for scal 2008 and beyond, the scal 2007 budget adjusts some program projections begun in prior year budgets. The scal 2007 budget continues the process of funding the Department’s ongoing shift in emphasis, away from the static posture and forces of the last century toward the highly mobile and expeditionary forces, and accompanying war ghting capabilities, needed in the century ahead. “Like the QDR,” Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said, “the scal 2007 budget re ects the department’s continuum of change as we defend our nation, engage in the long war against terrorist extremism and prepare for future potential adversaries.”

(Photos by Elizabeth Davie)By Lisa Barbella Contributing writer An audience crowded the multi-purpose room to capacity on Sunday as the high school National Junior/Senior Honor Society hosted its annual variety show. This yearÂ’s event featured two shows, a matinee at 2 p.m. and an evening performance at 7 p.m. It was decided by the NHS students that the pro ts from this yearÂ’s show would go to Salmen High School in Slidell, La; which was destroyed Student show


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2006 5 See SHOW, Page 6 The dance group Smooth Criminals' performs at the variety show Sunday evening in the multi-purpose room. The group consisted of left to right, Lauren Peters, Laurie Simpson, Casey Evans, Katie Funk, Clarissa Holton, Tessa Thimsen and Monica Hurricane Katrina. The group was put into contact with the school by a former Kwajalein High School student who traveled to the area to provide Katrina relief and they have been corresponding with Salmen High ever since. The group sent aid to the school earlier this academic year, but much more was still needed and the students felt that the Variety Show was the perfect way to provide what money and supplies they could. “The Salmen High student’s mascot is the Spartan just like Kwaj High’s. It was a sign of the kinship and empathy we felt for these students and teachers; it could just have easily been us and we wanted to help in any way possible,” said NHS member Ashley DeLong. The variety show’s performers were all high school students who spent many months preparing for the event. The show was hosted by two NHS members, Leah Simpson and Christian Clark, who dressed in their formal wear and kept the audience entertained between acts with jokes and enthusiastic introductions. The show opened with Jeff Lewis, Barry Childers and Michael Graham performing Eric Clapton’s Tears in Heaven It was followed by well-received performances by pianist Livy Hoskins and singer Margaret Geeslin. Next up was Will O’Connell in his debut performance as a stand-up comedian. “It was a lot of fun and good to be raises dollars for Katrina victims


Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6SHOW, from Page 5 Taking care February is National Dental Health Month While some study results indicate the use of a mouth rinse can be as effective as ossing for reducing plaque between the teeth, the American Dental Association recommends brushing twice a day and cleaning between the teeth with oss or interdental cleaners once each day to remove plaque from all tooth surfaces. Plaque is responsible for both tooth decay and gum disease. Regarding the studies, the authors concluded that in patients with mild to moderate gingivitis (early periodontal (gum) disease), rinsing twice a day with the antiseptic mouth rinse was as effective as ossing for reducing plaque and gingivitis between the teeth. The studies did not examine whether the mouth rinse had the same effect as oss on reducing tooth decay or periodontitis (advanced periodontal disease). Flossing and interdental cleaners also help remove food debris caught between teeth that may not be rinsed away. The ADA recommends the following for good oral hygiene: • Brush your teeth twice a day with an ADA-accepted uoride toothpaste. • Clean between teeth daily with oss or an interdental cleaner. Decay–causing bacteria still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. Flossing removes plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line. • Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks. • Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams. Talk to your dentist about what types of oral care products will be most effective for you. The ADA seal on a product is your assurance that it has met ADA criteria for safety and effectiveness. Look for the ADA seal on uoride toothpaste, toothbrushes, oss, interdental cleaners, oral irrigators, mouth rinses and other oral hygiene products. Replace your toothbrush every three or four months or sooner if the bristles become frayed. A worn toothbrush will not do a good job of cleaning your teeth. Children’s toothbrushes often need replacing more frequently than adults because they can wear out sooner. Also, if you often chew aspirin over a prolonged period you could severely damage your teeth, according to a case study in the July issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association. “Aspirin can cause severe damage to both the hard and soft tissues of the mouth,” said researchers from the University of Maryland Dental School, Baltimore. The researchers presented two cases of enamel erosion attributed to daily chewing of multiple aspirin tablets on a long-term basis. Both patients needed extensive dental treatment as a result. “We could nd no cause of the tooth erosion other than the aspirin use,” the researchers said. “When we showed the tooth destruction to [one] patient, he con rmed that the worst areas were, indeed, where he held the aspirin tablets.” February is National Dental Health Month, a great time to make an appointment with either of the island dentists, Dr. James Schuler or Dr. Roy Schoppert, as well as the dental hygienists, Judy Shimamoto or Jan Budo at 52165. in the spotlight for those ve minutes, but knowing that it was for a great cause made it feel even better than if I was just goo ng around. It was great to see so many people there,” stated O’Connell speaking of his act. The Smooth Criminal dance group was the next to perform as they boogied to Michael Jackson’s classic song of the same name. Amber Banducci then wowed the audience with her rendition of These Dreams The viewers were also provided with some comic relief by Justin Decoster, Barry Childers and Ryan Wagner, Decoster with a hilarious Napoleon Dynamite impression and Childers and Wagner with two comic songs written by the students. A slideshow of Salmen High was then presented so the audience could see rst hand the cause they were supporting. For the nale, two songs were performed by a student ensemble while everyone involved in creating the show joined them on the stage to take a bow and to thank the audience. The students also expressed their appreciation for the NHS Advisor Ann Elise Peterson who guided and directed them through the production of the show and all year. The show was a success both in nance and in fun. Thanks to generous donations by the audience, more than $2,000 was raised by the end of the night. According to audience member and NHS parent Mary Beth Clark, “The show was a great accomplishment; it gets better every year.”

There are many ways to dissent and we live in a nation where everyone has that right, but using wounded soldiers for a political comment is pretty tasteless. If it wasnÂ’t for those men and women in uniform who have made the ultimate sacri ce and those who are suffering in hospital beds at this very moment, none of us would have that right. Cartoons of political leaders are ne as far as IÂ’m concerned, but letÂ’s leave our servicemembers out of it. They are only doing what their elected leaders have told them to do. I would say to the Washington Post editors and the cartoonist who drew it, you should take a hard look at yourselves and thank God you live where you live. And while youÂ’re at it, look up the word decency in the dictionary. YouÂ’ve apparently never heard it before.
