Hey ! Osama read this to your Mama

Reader comment on item: Jihad and the Professors
in response to reader comment: Three Islamic websites worth checking

Submitted by Heald Hill (United States), Feb 11, 2007 at 22:23

I have spent most of my life defending the core principles of my country's beliefs, and I have had to use both diplomacy, and force. The thing about 90% ( conservatively ) of Americans is that they are taught from birth, that all life has value. However; when any one person, or group takes on the idea that they can harm innocents to prove ANY point, is nothing more than the deepest form of cowardice there is.

For any person, and I mean ANY person, to think they have the right to execute people that actually don't have anything to do with the wrong that they feel has been done against them, is taking the place of God. Now, just take a minute to think about that. Example: If I say that I am doing good works in the name of my God, then suddenly I disagree with something that my God has asked me to do, what then shall I do ? Try to kill my God ? No, of course not.

So then, if I disagree with the beliefs of a country, or it's people, should I try to kill all it's people, or the countries leader ? The fight in the middle east is about people, it is not about God, or any sort of religion, I know this because God would never agree that the path to heaven is through the murder of non combatants, or innocent people. When you are fighting a soldier, that soldier knows he, or she may die. Terrorists, Jihadists, these are not men, these are not God's warriors, these are cowards. It is easy to set a bomb, and sneak away like a rat or to injure children, or civilian women, it does not take a Godly person to do these things, it only takes a hate filled coward. I am a warrior, but my war is fought in prayer, understanding, and trying to forgive haters, and to love them with a heart of God. All life is precious..
