From the heart, I am a Christian woman – in fact I am a practising Catholic. It is important to emphasise my beliefs because I follow the teachig of the Catholic church when it comes to the issue of salvation. For that reason, I accept that there are exceptional circumstances where someone who is Muslim, and who has never had the opportunity to hear the Christian message will still get some form of reward from God in Heaven. You have the right to disagree with my statement, but I do in fact qualify this to those men and women who do everything to be obedient to God (per that whispering voice that they do not understand, yet that voice urges them to be good) and who practise their faith through prayer but not through the Islamist version of jihad. If you know anything about the Agca Kahn and the form of Islam of his followers, you might understand what I am getting at here. If not please look up Ismailism and you might be surprised. There are indeed forms of Islam where adherents do not accept that violence against “crusaders” is necessary. (I continue to need to research the subject more fully). I am making this qualification before launching into my real rant. Please note that in Ismailist Islam the Agca Kahn is an imam. His authority derives from his ancestry – he claims to be descended from Fatima.
My real subject here is the reaction to the killing of the imam (he is not a cleric) and former American citizen (by birth only) Anwar al-Awlaki. This is not about the rantings of Ron Paul and Denis Kuchinic who are going out of their tree over this death, which has been enough for these particular idiots to want to demand impeachment. (Sorry guys you need something better than the killing of a man who has masterminded a number of evil actions against the USA). This is also not about the death at the same time of Samir Kahn, who was the editor of the online Al Qaeda journal “Inspire”.
This is about the radical British “imam” Anjem Choudary who has made an extremely serious threat on the life of Østupid. You can find the exact nature of the threat at MyPetJawa. I suggest that you have a look at what Rusty has discovered. This is now an extremely serious threat, because Anjem Choudary is now inciting radical Muslims to assassinate Østupid, because of the deaths of Osama Bin Laden (justified) and Anwar al-Awlaki (also justified in my view).
Osama Bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki worked together in different branches of Al Qaeda. Both were the mastermind of the attack on the Twin Towers. Awlaki was the imam at the Virginia mosque when the perpetrators of the events of September 11 were preparing for their attack. Awlaki masterminded the attack on Ft. Hood, and he inspired a number of other individuals to go ahead and attempt their personal “jihad”. As such Awlaki was indeed an enemy of the people.
I am extremely sick and tired of these professional victims who think that adherents of Islam are untouchable. If they commit the crime of killing others then the gloves remain off, and they must either be killed like it happened in the Wild West, or they must face a trial by judge and jury. In my view it is perfectly acceptable to go in for the kill against those who plot mass murder. Sometimes it is the only way to get justice. Please note I would say the same thing when it comes to pedophiles who kidnap children (boys and girls) who use them, and then kill them for their own pleasure, especially when it is so personal for me. (I am convinced that a pedophile kidnapped the boy who had been my neighbour, who raped him, and then killed him. Yes, I think that Gerard was not killed immediately, and I heard something that suggests that he was detained in a secret room in a house during those two weeks that he was missing before his body was found).
Anjem Choudary belongs in jail, either in the UK or in the USA. He should not be allowed to get away with this kind of incitement. This is extremely serious. No matter what you think of Østupid, the last thing we want to see happen is someone attempting to assassinate him.
