I could not agree more.
I have no problem whatsoever with Muslims fighting western oppression, I just wish that those chose to rise above their enemy and fight in a way that
shows the dignity that is truly Islam.
(I wish much more that they did not have to fight in the first place, but then that is not going to happen very soon)
Isn’t a surprise a few brain-washed Brits decided to Bomb London last week after 6 months or so of with pseudo-Islamic preaching.
The troublesome preachers are correct about the issues they are fighting, but their methods are no better than their enemies, and will certainly never
achieve anything other than further oppression to the vast majority of members of their faith that have no desire to anything but to live their lives
as the majority of westerners do, i.e., with comfort and security for their families.
Great interview with Abu Hamza by the amazing Jeremy Paxman
. Pretty much what I said above, fair points well put from Abu, but solutions that are imo wrong.
Not to take blame off the trigger pullers...they are ultimately responsible, but thier are others at work who teach this hatred and ideas to
others...they, IMO, are just as guilty and should be dealt with.
It is amazingly easy to alter peoples morals and the way they think and observe, just look at any military outfit in the world and the procedures and
discipline they use to 'build then break' men.
I feel almost certain amount of empathy for them, and especially so for their families, despite the crimes they have committed.
They are also innocents in the war. Cults of any description are powerful influences, I am just grateful that the majority that go through this
training are still strong minded enough at the end, no doubt with a tremendous amount of help from their families, to not continue the path that
others would have them tread.
