Algeria: The Psychos Will Inherit the Earth
By Gary Brecher Browse author Email
 
Page 4 of 4
 
Not everybody approved of the GIA. The Islamists who weren't completely out of their little minds started trying to isolate the GIA. Some formed a new group called the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (you gotta love that name!) which tried to be "good" guerrillas, sticking to military targets and not killing civilians unnecessarily. Meanwhile the AIS, the first and biggest Islamic guerrilla group, made a deal with the government in 1999. They got amnesty and agreed to help hunt down the crazies in the GIA.

It looked like things were looking up for Algeria-for a while. But lately it all seems to be melting down. The GIA is still around. The Salafists are hunkered down in the mountains waiting to meet the Army head-on. And the Berbers are getting sick of having their favorite musicians blown away for the crime of singing. (Apparently Allah hates singers. Maybe we could pay the GIA to come over and whack Eminem.)

The poor Berbers. They're really the only people you can sympathize with in the whole sick country. It's like they're the only sane person in a family full of Chainsaw Massacre types. So they're the freaks, because they want to drink wine and sing and take it easy. They're the "evil" un-Islamic ones, because they're not as crazy as the Algerian Arabs. The sad thing is, they'll probably never be able to kill as well as the Islamists. You can't act as crazy as a really crazy person, no matter how hard you try. And the Berbers are just too sane for Algeria. They'll be stomped every time.

So whoever said that the meek are going to inherit the earth was dead wrong. If you want an "angle" or a "moral" from Algeria, here's an honest one: the psychos are going to inherit everything.
