RANT: on the Israeli Terror Campaign against Lebanon

RANT ALERT!

I am very angry, I am so angry that every time I read about Israel’s blood-lust I am physically sick. I have refrained from making any comment on Israel’s War of Terror against the CIVILIAN population of Lebanon and Gaza, because I would probably end up with a few pages of emotional diatribe. Luckily, Fareena’s piece in the Guardian’s Comment is Free blog raises some very interesting and relevant points that the blood soiled Blair regime must take note of.

The inaction and complicity of the Blair regime in the Israeli terror campaigns against the Lebanese civilian population are plain to see. This is not a “War on Terror” it is a “War of Terror”, it is the deliberate and systematic targetting of civilians using precision guided munitions, supplied by Uncle Sam and routed through our very own green and pleasant land. It is plain to see that Mr. Blair has no qualms about bringing death and destruction upon those of a different hue to White Europeanism, let’s face it most Israelis are European and therefore Arabs are the “Other” and the Israelis are “the good ol’ boys”. These are war crimes, make no mistake, and are taking place before our very eyes and are not much better than what the Nazis meted out to the Jews. “Never again!” the oft repeated mantra of our Jewish brethren, how hollow and untrue that has now become in the face of the new (actually not so new now) Holocaust that is being visited upon the Lebanese and Palestinians. How sad that the descendent of Prophets and Messengers are acting in such a way, what disgrace they have brought upon their heritage.

So that we don’t lose sight of the fact that there are good people everywhere Jews for Justice for Palestinians are speaking out, and we need to support these people. We cannot alienate these people by using loose and emotional language against our Jewish brethren. There are scores of other similar organisations, such as Tikkun and the Israeli based Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.

Let us not be fuelled by hate so much so that we lose objectivity, wisdom and humanity, and I know that it is hard especially at this time in the face of such terror and wilful killing of our brothers and sisters be they Muslim, Christian or Jew.

Must Listen – BBC Radio 4 Start the Week with Andrew Marr

From the BBC site:Guests

Imprisoned for three years by the Americans, much of it at Guantanamo Bay, former law student MOAZZAM BEGG has written a book about his experiences and talks about identity, Islam and incarceration. Enemy Combatant: A British Muslim’s Journey to Guantanamo and Back is published by Free Press.

Historian CHARLES ALLEN’S latest book, God’s Terrorists, is a history of the ideology underpinning global jihad and describes how the roots of an eighteenth century cult have grown to become a global threat. Charles Allen discusses the history of Wahhabism, the guiding ideology behind modern Islamist terrorism. God’s Terrorists is published by Little, Brown.

Monkies, Typewriters and Shakespeare.

In my previous post I postulated that we are alone in the universe, the first thing people say is that based on the chance of the number of planets similar to the Earth in the Universe, it is likely that there is life out there. Now as a Muslim I don’t believe that life came about by chance and this position of probabilities and chance is a secular atheistic theory. One thing worth thinking about is not so much the complexity and intricacy of life but life itself, why do we exist as opposed to not existing? Why do we exist despite the chances of our non-exisitence being overwhelmingly weighted against us, there would be more of a chance of us winning the lottery every day of our lives than us being in existence and yet we are here?

A favourite example of atheists in support of their belief that life came about randomly through a series of highly improbable and unlikely events is “eventually a room full of monkeys bashing away randomly on typewriters can come up with the complete works of Shakespeare”! The example that should be given is, “give the same monkeys the raw materials for paint and canvas and get them to paint the complete works of Leonardo Da Vinci precisely” if you are talking probabilities then this is probably more accurate.
