The relentless, repetitive bloody slaughters of human beings around the world leaves most of us in shock, with repulsion, and yearning for retribution, and at least hoping for honorable display of justice. Then there are many in the world, who in utter horror, choose to ignore that fact that mothers, fathers, and children are savagely murdered week after endless week. We can only suppose it's a psychological survival technique for some to ignore the evidence of events in order to keep on their merry way of living in an Alice-in-Wonderland pretend-world of self-absorbed hedonism with countless entertainment distractions.
Russia's recent slaughter of 35 human beings at Moscow's airport is but another reminder of the bloody slaughters at Glasgow's Airport, London's underground, Madrid's train station, Bali's hotel, the USS Cole, the Pentagon, Shanksville, PA, The World Trade Center Towers in NYC, the embassy buildings in Africa, the Khobar Towers apartment, Fort Hood massacre, the decapitations of Daniel Pearl and Mike Berg, as well as the mere intent of the Underwear-Bomber and Shoe-Bomber recalls for us just a few slaughters which immediately come to mind
There's no better spokesman for this ongoing slaughter of fellow human beings than Sheik Osama bin Laden who in November of 2001 explained to the world; but mostly directed at us in western civilization using a clear and quite self-explanatory statement. Bin Laden said: "We love death. The U.S. loves life. That is the big difference between us."
Around the world, it's more than a pity in observing ostriches whose only refuge appears to be sticking their heads in the sand rather than face the facts on the ground. It's about time we acknowledge what's going on. Why do some attempt in making events so impossibly complex so nobody can ever connect the dots? We can't ignore reality by using some perverted excuse using diversity of religious beliefs as to why we just can't understand, let alone call a spade a spade.
The world's ongoing bloody holocaust continues to this very day; and will for many years to come. It's absolutely paramount for all of us to at least acknowledge, add things up, and conclude that this human slaughter will not end until the very mindset which inflames such inhumane brutality is studied, exposed, acknowledged, understood and ultimately changed.
Just how many more bodies will it take before we begin to comprehend what's going on. We must be able to name the scourge, to deal with it, fight it and overcome this evil.
And now, we discover we Christians and those of the Jewish faith are doomed to pay for the slaughter, no less. To wit: American-born fugitive Muslim leader Anwar al-Awlaki says the costs of fighting jihad around the world are so high that Christians and Jews should be paying for it. In the winter issue of al Qaida's Inspire Magazine he writes "Dispossessing the Disbelievers" in which Awlaki complains that because world-wide jihad is expensive, it's too much of a burden to ask Muslim faithful to continue paying for spreading Islam and Islamic law [Sharia Law] around the Globe. His remedy is clear: "Steal from the wealthy kafirs [unbelievers] and give the money to Imams who teach and promote jihad."
The Center for the Study of Political Islam's founder, Bill Warner, says Awlaki is correctly interpreting the teaching of Islam, adding that Awlaki is simply urging Muslims to follow in the footsteps of Muhammad. Warner says: "He is imitating Muhammad. He [Awlaki] even talks about this. Muhammad was an honest businessman and then he became a prophet. After he became a prophet and moved to Medina, according to the Sira, every dollar he got was taken from the kafir, the unbelievers. So when this man is talking like this, it may be shocking to some people, but to those who are familiar with Muhammad, they would say 'Yes, that is Sunna, the perfect example of Muhammad'."
Sheik Anjem Choudary from his Islamic enclave in Britain says Awlaki accurately represents the Islamic viewpoint. Choudary says: "He is knowledgeable on the area of jihad, and therefore what he is positing is an Islamic viewpoint that there is no distinction between civilians and the army. Those people who are fighting against Muslims do not have sanctity of their lives or their wallets."
Sheik Choudary continues: "The prophet Muhammad said that the one who puts boundaries, frontiers and borders on land is cursed. So we don't actually believe there is anything called boundaries or limitations to the rule of Islamic law. That is an Islamic viewpoint, and that is based on the Quran and the traditions of the messenger Muhammad, that originally there is no sanctity for the life and wealth of non-Muslims unless they embrace Islam or unless they covenant with them in a covenant of security. Otherwise there is a state of continual conflict and war, and this is what the messenger Muhammad said. They had been ordered to fight non-Muslims until they declare there is no one worthy of worship except for Allah. If they do, their wealth would be protected.. They should be invited to Islam, and if they refuse, they go back to the original state which is conflict and their life and wealth not having sanctity."
Choudary explains the concept further for non-Muslims who do not follow the Quran [Koran]: "Definitely we do not recognize the nation states and we do not recognize the United Nations. We recognize the world as divided into two camps, the camp of Islam and the camp of non-Islam or disbelievers."
Despite many Imams and Mullahs preaching this concept of two camps, a foundation pillar of Muhammad, most in the west cannot and will not accept that ordinary Muslims believe in and understand their prophet Muhammad's definitions.
Bill Warner verifies this misguided view from the west: "The kafirs [unbelievers] will ignore this. Newspapers will ignore this. Or, they will dismiss it as not real Islam. In short, the kafirs will be in a state of denial." Warner elucidates: "The response of the kafir, Homeland Security, FBI, is a complete denial that such a thing [Islamic religious belief of only two human camps on earth] exists. They get by with this by creating a concept of 'Good Muslim,' or 'Real Muslims.' The jihadis they declare to be fake or 'False Muslims'."
Clara Lopez, a Center for Security Policy Senior Fellow, agrees with Warner. Lopez offers direction from the Quran, the primary guide or sole authority for Islamic jihad. She writes: "Sura 9.5 reads: 'But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war.' The verses of the ninth Sura -- the Sword Sura -- say fight and kill the infidels, whenever you may find them, even if they be People of the Book [my emphasis], which means Jews and Christians, until they pay the jizya, the tax, with willing submission. This is mainstream, orthodox Islam, revealed, or taught, as Awlaki is doing in a sequential manner, first this, then that, then that." Being the last Sura regarding all Jews and every last Christian, this is the penultimate Sura of the Quran and thus obliges Muslims to submit and practice this jihad.
The Pew Forum in 2009 reports that 23 percent of the world's population -- or 1.8 billion -- is Muslim. Muslims themselves tell us that the amount of Wahabi sect followers and their jihadi-killing members of Islam amount to a mere and insignificant 1 to 2 percent. Let's consider the lower 1 percent; that translates into just under 2 million killers-in-waiting.
Of these strict followers of the Wahabi sect of jihad killers: How many more slaughtered bodies will it take before we in western civilization finally admit a scintilla of understanding in Quranic Suras, Sheiks, Imams, Mullahs as well as al Qaida's leaders and their dispersed minions around the world from their Islamic 'camp' using their own mouths and from their own statements of reasoning and belief?
