My Way News: "LAGOS (Reuters) - Deadly protests over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad spread in Africa, killing 16 people in Nigeria on Saturday a day after claiming 11 lives in Libya. Many of those who died in northern Nigeria were Christians, killed after a Muslim protest over the cartoons turned violent and rioters torched churches, shops and vehicles, police and local officials said."

    I confess to having trouble wrapping my mind around this--it's as though we live in parallel universes. Can this really be about Mohammad and cartoons?

    Yeah, this is so ridiculous now. I cant believe they are reacting like this. Insanity.

    EP & CH,

    I think as we mentioned earlier this doesn't have anything to do with a cartoon. I remember after 9/11 I heard an Islamic cleric comment on "radical" Islam. He said that radical Islam only comprised about 10% of all of Islam. Quick calculation of "10%" means there are 200 million crazed lunatics in this world bent on the destruction of the white devil and all who ally themselves with him. 200 million--that is a population about the size of the United States.

    Sobering thought...

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
