Mao And Then--China's Communist Dictator Remembered
Al-Jazeera remembers the "Man of the Poor"
A generation ago, the West withstood the onslaught of totalitarian Communism and its fellow travelers (including state socialism). Communist terrorists, in contrast to Islamic terrorists of today, were usually the heads of state, like Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Fidel, etc. Given Al-Jazeera's leanings, it is not surprising that a reflective and odious ode to Mao pops up to commemorate thirty years of his passing, and perhaps in reminding us of the beginning of the very long end of Communist Party rule, that Islamic terror may be a passing (in decades) manifestation of evil.
Let us hope and pray.
