Right Wing Loony Alert!

...and this one is, yes, in the Pentagram! Lt. General William Boykin is a deputy Undersecretary in the Defense Department who casts the war against terrorism in even starker terms than the usual "us vs. them" rhetoric coming from the White House and its minions:

Appearing in dress uniform before a religious group in Oregon in June, Boykin said Islamic extremists hate the United States "because we're a Christian nation, because our foundation and our roots are Judeo-Christians. ... And the enemy is a guy named Satan."

Call the men in white jackets, please. And, in this corner of the loony bin, we have the President of Malaysia, happily living down to General Boykin's impressions:

In his attack at the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), Mahathir said Jews ruled the world and got others to fight and die for them, but added that they would not be able to defeat the world's 1.3 billion Muslims.

"We are actually very strong, 1.3 billion people cannot be simply wiped out. The Europeans killed 6 million Jews out of 12 million. But today the Jews rule the world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them," he said.

Cripes. Maybe Boykin has a point.
