I recall 9/11, with people jumping to their deaths from 100 stories up, and NYC emergency workers covered in dust and grime until it was impossible to tell the color of their uniforms. I thought of the terror that must have gone through the minds of the passengers on the doomed airplanes as they went to their fiery deaths.
And I remember watching broadcasts of the eruptions of joy across the Islamic world, including "poor, martyred Falastin", where a fat lady in hijab and ugly glasses jigged for the cameras. Bin Laden crowed that "only Muslims" could be so brave and daring. But then, the bombs started falling on the great Mujahed's hideouts, and OBL and all his fans started wailing how 9/11 was really the work of the [**Drumroll!**]----JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOZ! (For the record, Uncle Cephas is a Christian). Oh, how wondrous were the brave lions of jihad as soon as things got just a little bit hot for them! Not only do they blame the people they accuse of being the kin of apes and pigs (Qur'an 5:60), but, I understand, either OBL himself or one of his guards hid behind a woman when the Navy Seals burst in.
And now, the forces of Jihad are going to take vengeance! Ten-year-old Coptic girls in Egypt will be raped. Dirt-poor Christian farmers in Pakistan will be forced off their smallholdings or tenancies by the mujaheddin of the people's justice. Maybe a 150% PeeCee EmCee female aid worker or journalist in some impoverished Islamic land will also be gang-raped for being a Westerner. All this, plus the murder of a few Christian shopkeepers, the stoning of Tunisia's last synagogues, and the like will surely vindicate the honor of Islam against the "crusaders".
But, thanks, OBL. Your disciples' actions forced me and many other Americans to consider the teachings of your violent, supremacist, misogynistic, bullying, so-called religion that sanctifies every unclean lust of young males, from theft (if it's from the Kufr) to rape in detailed passages on Qur'an, Hadith, and their classical commentaries. Now I raise my middle finger to all the Western moral equivalence mongers who, without having cracked the Bible in years, whine that "the Bible is also violent!" No, you folks know all too well that Christianity gave you much of what you value from art to constitutional government, even as you mock us Christians and cringe lest you haply insult a Muslim.
To Noam Chomsky and all his Troofer crowd, to the learned doctors of Al-Azhar who are now saying that OBL's burial at sea was a sin while ignoring his mass murder, EAT CROW!
And, congratulations to our Navy Seals, intelligence workers, troops everywhere, and even to Mr. Obama, our CINC.
Finally, a Scripture for OBL and his fallen comrades:
...For their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched, and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh (Isaiah 66:24, echoed by Jesus Christ in Mark 9:48.)
