“Those who follow the pattern of the Islamist bombing campaign know that to label it ‘anti Western’ is to misinform. This misinformed narrative argues that because of various historical injustices perpetrated by ‘ The West’ , radical Islam has begun to hit back, and if only ‘we’ stopped meddling in the affairs of Muslim countries the violence would stop. Sunday night’s bombings in Uganda give lie to that narrative, as do numerous examples over the last decade.” [Tim Marshall]
ATTENTION: Abdicators, Accommodators, and Capitulators –
IF you really believe Islam is a peaceful religion, AND that fanatical Jihadists are in a minority, THEN tell me: in a global struggle for dominance between those two factions, which one do you believe will prevail in the end?
Aha! SO, you’re siding with the faction which wants to destroy your country, your culture, its traditions, your children’s future and kill you.
You okay with that?
Remember, Islam is not truly a religion … it is a secular state within a state.
Apathy is a powerful enemy and weariness, his companion is a worthy adversary; my selfishness and my flesh bring them together to oppose my strength and commitment at the worst possible moments.
Ever been there?
A really good friend reminded me recently that the most painful wounds are those that are self-inflicted.
I would add that those inflicted by trusted friends take the longest to heal.
A Facebook friend, Charlie Gibson, said, “And those inflicted by your family/significant other, leave lasting scars.”
In this world I seek no more than life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness … how is it that I covet so little and yet am opposed by so many?
When you feel like you need to be cheered up, remember so does someone else; you begin with him (or her) and end with you … two for one is a good deal!
