England's Brutal Terrorist Murder
My condolences and sympathy go out to the family of the English soldier so brutally murdered by jihadist terrorists this week. My sympathy and empathy go out to all of England and its people for
having this horrible attack take place in their country. To be so cruelly cut down in the name of Islam is too much for most people to bear.
The viciousness of this attack has stunned the world. To literally be hacked down by knives and machetes on the street in broad daylight is horrendous. And, for people to have had to witness this is beyond belief. Thank heavens the terrorists have been apprehended and are now in jail. I hope that justice will be swift.
We here in America feel your pain, England, having just recently experienced the Boston Marathon murders by terrorists.
Where and how this conflict with the terrorists of Islam will ever end I don't know. All the good nations of the world are in this conflict with these terrorists for the long haul. We will not bend or break in our quest to end this scourge from the world.
But, where are the good and peaceful believers of Islam? Why are you not stepping up and doing more for your people so they do not turn to these hateful terrorists? Please understand that all we are seeing are these horrible attacks in the name of Islam and your religion is becoming darker and darker by each attack. How can a true and peaceful religion remain silent and condone such acts? Why are you not more vocal and vigilant in rooting out these horrible people on your own.
I understand these terrorists' justification for these horrible acts. Our armies are in your native lands killing your friends and family also. But, we did not start this. It is you, jihadist terrorists that attacked us first on 9/11. Did you think we would just sit by and do nothing? Or was that your manipulation? Knowing we would do something about such a heinous attack on our country, so that you could perpetrate more and more attacks on us? A tit for tat?
Perhaps our country's decision to invade Iraq and Afghanistan was not a good one in your opinion. But, we have brought a modicum of democracy to those nations. The people have been able to choose their own government and their own leaders. We have done this in the name of good and in the name of democracy. We are trying to do what is the most good for the most people living in those areas. Our involvement in those countries was not perpetrated by hate, but by love of justice and wanting to free an oppressed people. Our intentions are for good, not evil.
We are now as a country winding down our involvement in those countries and the middle east. We are leaving and bringing more and more of our troops home. So is England. So these attacks you make on innocent people here are not justified.
I used to believe it was just a a fundamentalist sect of Islam that was perpetrating these acts of violence. But, I don't hear the good people of Islam speaking out enough against these attacks.
Could it be these terrorists are doing your dirty work for you?
Is the religion of Islam being taken over by these fundamentalist terrorists? Today, when I see women with scarves on their heads I almost look at them in disdain and derision. I never used to do that. I always kept an open mind about other cultures and other religions. But, as these attacks continue on innocent people just going about their lives, my opinion of women in scarves and the Islam beliefs and religion are beginning to change. I am beginning to see it is a hateful religion at its core.
If the true and good believers of Islam do no step up to the plate and do more to stop these ugly terrorists, I will continue to loose respect for you and for your religion. Now is the time for your voices to be heard and to condemn what has happened in the U.S. and England over the past month.
I am calling on the entire Islamic world to come together and work to find a way to end this terrorism that is in the name of your religion and Allah.
And, if you truly and sincerely do work to find a way to end this terrorism, America and England will help you achieve that goal.
