Fool all the people

I've heard it said, that nothing is more certain than death and taxes. We need to add one more item to this list and that is, "war". When in the history of man has there been a time without war? Should you except that Adam and Eve were the first humans on earth, then you would acknowledge that the first act of war was Cain killing his brother Abel. And from that time, man has continued warring against his brothers, with the only significant difference being the type of weapon used.

So we should not be surprised that we have an old warrior on the scene with new armour. Oh, he's been busy all along but his focus was on Israel and limited to the middle east until say some 20 years ago or so. Our warrior was insulted as few paid any attention to him until September 11, 2001. On that most important day, the world sat up and took notice and recognized the warrior as Islam. Islam took great pride in his declaration of war, and his family celebrated around the world. Islam declared that the world belonged to him and our option was to submit or die.

Volume 9, Book 85, Number 77
"You should Know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to exile you from this land, so whoever among you owns some property, can sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle."

Islam was surprised at the ease with which he was able to carry out this atrocity and concluded that he could "fool all the people all the time". And from his family he selected a number of "deniers". The purpose of the "deniers", was to fool the people by convincing them that Islam was not responsible for these atrocities. He chose, Ahmad, Amir, Azmat, Bader S, Mu'een and Mustapha and assigned them to the task of convincing the world that Islam was a man of peace. He also chose Harrak, but Harrak did not take his responsibility seriously and chose to entertain the readers rather than convince them of Islam's innocence. Maybe Harrak has been dismissed from this group. The message from the "deniers" group is two fold, convince the world that Islam is peaceful and that the USA is the evil one. We will soon know if he is successful.
