Between Us Only!
Stop These Senseless Slaughters!
Like I had said in my previous articles – the problems that we are facing today in the world are mainly two-folds – One that those that are so-called Religious peoples want to become also as Politicians – and those that are so-called Politicians want to become also ‘Religious’! The other is that everyone is right, ethical and correct – the rest are not – especially the adversaries! We are the good and nice – they are the evil and all bad! More importantly – violence only begets violence!
There is no middle ground – or like I like to say ‘The Third Option’ – that is not with you – nor with them – but first and foremost – with ourselves only! Have you noticed that everyone is also ‘nice, decent and good’ – the others are not – all bad and evil! When ‘intelligent, smart and knowledgeable people’ hold fixed and entrenched positions, outlooks and focuses – then something has got to give! Sometimes the results are least expected – when you open a can of worms – or let the genie out of the bottle!
There is a famous expression that a stupid person is doing the same thing (mistake) over and over again – and expecting different results the next time! Tragically and sadly we have not learnt from our past mistakes. Like letting the Iraq –Iran war continue – even start – as it did! The invasion of Kuwait! Like keeping silent, quiet and in inaction when great crimes and atrocities were committed between Arabs versus Arabs (Muslims) – though there were some raised voices when it was the other side adversary doing it!
Consoling Victims’ Families
Some Images Removed – as too gruesome!
It seems that history is repeating itself – now we have Muslims slaughtering Muslims in cold blood and in senseless brutal unimaginable ways – and just under the breathe we may curse – but then just go quiet – and remain as spectators, inactive and impotent also! And then the hypocrisy! The double standards! To so unbelievable frightening levels! Do we hear ourselves speak? Unimaginable!
The Great Prophet – and all the Prophets and Saints – are turning in their graves! All their works have gone to waste, decadence and demise – utter waste! And yet we continue as normal – and as if nothing much has changed! I could quote and quote so many references from the Holy Book – from the Hadith – the Gospel – the Torah – and so many other places! I could quote from the Great Scholars – the Great Speakers – the Great Leaders – but what is the use? People will read it – and put them all away – for a rainy day – to read the next time! In between nothing will have changed – if not only for the status quo only getting worse – day by day. Allah God is controlling His anger and fury – and that is why we are not scared – nor worried!
People just want to live normal peaceful lives! Live and let live! With their families and children. The usual wants and desires – a shelter – a home – a roof over your head. The usual utilities – water and electricity – or something very near. The freedom to practise one’s beliefs and religion! Even if you murder and kill half of the opposing religious (social) beliefs – do you think that they will be scared stiff to want to change? To come to your ways and beliefs? You only make them only more stronger – more determined!
Kill a few of their leaders! Others more radical and extreme will take their place! You have just made a bad situation turn only worse – everyone ends as a loser – if not you more! Look at this twisted ironies – you kill babies, children and women too in planned or even collateral damages – and then you go home to your own children and family – as if you have not done anything before! Whom are you trying to deceive and fool – but yourself only more! Are you a super human being – the other is just inferior? Or are they just cockroaches and mice? Like in the Goebbels film on Jews that led to the holocaust?
Does not that Palestinian and others like him fighting to be heard – need to live in peace and harmony just like you do? You came all over from all parts of the world – to take his home – his land and his rights – and today 60 years later he still lives as a refugee – his children – his grandchildren – his great grandchildren! You call yourself a democracy and freedom loving – but you oppress and humiliate others in your own country – that want only peace and stability to run their own affairs and in autonomy! You want to pray in your mosque (Masjid)? Why not let me pray in mine! You believe your way – I believe in my way! The hypocrisies and double standards are just too much – even to imagine! People are just core sick in all aspects!
Strangely you will find the very poor, deprived and depressed being used to kill, murder and maim the adversary – whilst those behind the scenes and schemes are far richer, far provided – and far protected and preserved! The Communists said – Religion is the opium of the poor! They cannot be right – but it seems they are!
And the same peoples that were victims before – doing the very same to innocent others! The more you oppress peoples – the more they become radicalised, extreme and fundamentalised! No one wins in the ultimate end!
Please stop these senseless wanton murders, slaughters and massacres – against the fellow Believers – or anyone else for that matter! Before it is too late for all humanity – and that includes you in the equation. You cannot expect to escape! The Muslim Scholars should all speak out – and lead by deeds and examples – there should be real determination and will – and meeting of the minds and in sprits! Before it is too late – for everyone! Be afraid of only God Allah – and no one else!
May Allah God Protect and Preserve us all humanity from His Anger and Fury – Amin Amen
