A.M. Mora y Leon over at Publius Pundit, in a post keying off an item I had flagged eariler this week on the link between radical Islam and pornography, notes:

There’s something kind of creepy I notice once in awhile when I look up which keywords are bringing in traffic at Publius Pundit. Whenever some group of indecent words comes up, like ‘nude, Ugandan, women’ or ‘naked, Iranian, babes’ or ‘Swedish, sex, slaves’ – more often than not, the person doing the search is flagged from some country like Iran, Saudi Arabia or one of the oppressed Gulf states."

Which prompts the question:

What I wonder is how many of the porn-seekers are Islamofascist and how many of them are just repressed schmucks who cannot get a date on Saturday night due to all the virtue regulations? Is it the puritanicalness of the Islamic societies that creates this taste for porn? Or is it that porn, which objectifies women and is ultimately violent, by its very emptiness and tendency to incite base instincts, is something that creates conditions for terrorism?"

I'm inclined to think that it's just repressed guys being repressed. But, either way, it's more evidence of a disturbing trend.
