ONE thing you cannot escape noticing is that Islamists love scarecrows. Wherever and whenever an anti-American protest breaks out some gurning loon will be there with an effigy of the US President he wants to set on fire. It isn’t Santa Claus’s Christmas, Halloween or Mother’s Day the US should have exported round the globe – it’s Bonfire Night, that British custom of spending every November 5th in the company of a stuffed, militant religionist (in this case the Catholic Guy Fawkes) with a rocket up his arse. If you want to show the jihadis that they are not the enemy, give them a hot jacket potato, a sparkler and invite them to bring an effigy to burn on the Bonfire. Recently, the Bonfire Nighters have been focusing on Barack Obama. Here are some of the best scarecrows/ effigies / Guys so far:
