The Anchoress. . .

. . .has updated with a wonderfully written column on an image that is forever imprinted on the American psyche (Thanks, Senator Kerry, for removing all meaning from the word "seared"). The Woman in the Black Hijab reminds us of the fact that there are people out there, despite what the John Kerry would have you think, who want nothing more than to see America erased from the face of the earth. Yes, Senator, there are some things that can't be solved with a summit, and no global test can possibly cover this kind of hatred and determination:

"Lately, whenever I see John Kerry and John Edwards, I don't see two well-dressed, smooth-talking lawyers with expensive haircuts and private jets. I don't see them at all. When I look at Kerry or Edwards, what I see is that toothless woman in her black hijab, dancing and whooping and reveling in blood and fire and death, displaying her joy for the camera, for the entire world to see."

UPDATE: Repaired link to show the image.
