Seriously??? No, seriously!!!

I've heard a lot of absurd and ridiculouos statements made in my life, such as the hate laden rhetoric of President Obama's 'former' pastor, but the following excerpt from an MSNBC article takes the cake. The article posted today declared:

Protest leader and Islamic cleric Alim Jamil Yahya said he condemned the "brutal killing" of bin Laden and described the al-Qaida founder's burial at sea as a desecration of his body. He said that although many Muslims did not agree with bin Laden's methods, they still revered him as a martyr because he fought for freedom against oppression by "the satanic U.S. hegemony." [emphasis mine]

Seriously? No, I mean, really, seriously??? 9-11 was an unprovoked, unwarranted attack against over 3000 innocent civilians who had begun the morning kissing their spouses, loved ones, significant others, and kids good bye, completely oblivious to the fact that it was the last time they'd ever get to do that. That was hailed by these moronic imbeciles (yes I feel that strongly about it) as a triumph for 'good over evil.'

What, in their opinions would have been a more humane death for Bin Laden? A plane crashing into his abode? A bomb blowing up in the basement of his 'hidden-from-Pakistani-military-home'? And what would have been a fitting burial. A pile of concrete rubble and steel? It's patently obvious that these hate-mongers will stop at nothing short of an attempt to anihilate Western civilization. Fortunately though, history is filled with precedents of others before them who have tried and failed.

They use Western technology, live in luxurious homes, drive luxurious cars, yatchs, and planes, all designed and built by Western technology, while denying their citizens the same comforts. Yet the West and more specifically, the USA is the great Satan? If that is true, I wonder how badly they must feel about being "in bed" with Satan? Judging from their continued use of Western technology; not very badly! There, I've said it and I feel much better. Now it's your turn.

I'm not surprised in the least. Satan always perverts the truth and makes it seem believable. I think they truly believe what they teach and fail to see the obvious fallacies that comprise the system within which they function and view the rest of the world. OBL deserved much more than the quick death he received but his true and just "reward" will come from the only one who can give and take away power...and that gives me great comfort. All things being set IS enraging to read these types of reports...on two fronts; one, it's angering to see the widespread deception that fills the hearts of so many and blinds them to what will ultimately be an eternal demise...and two, the audacity and arrogance people have to believe they have the right to destroy any one group of people or civilization is insanity and evil of a more refined nature. - glad you posted this - feels like a sigh of relief :) and much more interesting than discussing whether it's ok to be happy or relieved that Osama is dead.

Thea, thanks for adding your voice to the conversation. I couldn't agree with you more!

it is amazing (& not in a positive way), when from what i understand - we really "buried him" in custom with some muslim belief (right away)- i.e. we honored his remains despite what he deserved...& no pictures of his death have been released. this cleric ought to be grateful.

nevertheless, there are those who cannot recognize their own hypocrisy as you pointed out--yet, i find as this week has gone on -- there is more sadness to be had - it saddens me that these men are not free, cannot see freedom.

while i rejoice with the american people who have finally found release in this - i hope they will truly let it go --- because it's time & new challenges await.

"...because it's time & new challenges await."

Ash, that statement may yet prove to be prophetic. Thanks for joining the conversation.
