OSAMA BANG-BANG


Osama Bin Laden Warholl Style

Osama bin Laden has been eliminated and the Muslim extremist world is kind of mute at the news. They are exalting muted sadness or happiness while thinking about the next move telling the world that Osama is gone but his spirit lives on.

The world is full of tit and tat, ping and pong, yin and yang, pro and con that a bang-bang on symbols, icons or people going along their daily business must happen.

Bang-bang is the order of extreme terrorism when pagans do not heed to prescribe religious belief and books telling who to hate or discriminate. 

The Muslim clerics complained that a burial at sea was not satisfactory, Osama was shot while unarmed and Pakistan should have been informed of the “unauthorized” unilateral action.  Indonesia Islamists declared Osama a martyr.

Anyway, yes, American should have informed Pakistan to give Osama proper warning.  After all, Osama bin Laden was Pakistan bread and butter.
What will happen to Pakistan when the generous donations from America to combat terrorism stop coming?

Obama has suddenly become, even among birthers, more American in his country.
However, a few prominent personalities find it difficult to credit Obama.  Sarah Palin, a wannabe republican presidential candidate who recently acquired a passport to visit her geography, credited Bush of the ground work for catching Osama bin Laden.

Bush ground work was based on allegoric intelligence. Bush, after 9/11, destroyed Iraq, caused mayhem in the poppy fields of Afghanistan while Osama was in Pakistan.

Taliban infested Afghanistan has been vindicated. Tears ridden president Karzai for years told America that bin Laden was not hiding in the caves of the rocky mountains of Afghanistan.

Then others, the one you must listen to in order not to be labeled a moron by the politico, are looking into strategic mistakes made by the Obama administration. They analyze what should or could have been done, in which order and if waterboarding was used to illegally get Osama’s address.

For some Osama’s death without a body as evidence is not valid.  It is beyond their comprehension and speculation and conspiracy will soon start coming.

It is madness, who cares about the body since Osama was only an audiotape figure attached to fading color pictures of him from the Kodak roll film era.

Some will create tantrums to see the gruesome picture of Osama’s head pierced by a bullet.  Others will create counter-tantrum for the pictures not to be available.

Muslims extremists jump on high horses when a cartoonist caricatures their prophet. Pictures of Osama may cause the same effect.

Well, a worthy fact is that Osama was fond of Coca Cola and Pepsi. They found lots of empty soda cans in his hideaway. He probably drank the American liquid formula straight from the can and with a straw as not to soil his beard.

When the World Trade Center twin towers blew up lots of Muslim countries chanted death to the Americans and lots of praise for Osama.

It will still be difficult time ahead for the Muslim of Dearborn, Michigan. You cannot rejoice at the killing of your own even if you did not agree with his ideology.

Religion always comes before patriotism and Osama represented religious ideology within a political context or vice versa and that depends if you look at a glass half empty or full.

I think I have an idea where Gaddafi stays, his body can be dumped at sea.

Is that too much of a request?

NO MOSQUE NEAR GROUND ZERO


 

World Trade Center by Ras200

 

I favor the practice of any religions but do not appreciate for religious group, even atheist, to impose their views on others. Anyone’s belief telling me how to take care of my transcendental life cuts against my grain. I am not a religious addict and will not waste my time reasoning with addicts.
I favor separation of church and states. The worldly and secular aspect of our life is for democratically elected governments and religions for the transcendental and holiness of life. There is no common ground among the two.

I feel the same about immigration. Regardless where people come from or want to go to is not my problem. My philosophy is simple the world is beautiful and belongs to everyone.
Territories are a remnant of tribes existing worldwide a millennium ago and things will change. Now, you have the UNITED States of America, the European UNION and the UNITED Arab Emirates
Usually, people want to stay and thrive in the land of their birth and anyone annoyed about the influx of foreigners invading their areas for better life or opportunities should question the corrupt leaders, forcing for different reasons, their citizen to immigrate abroad.
I think I know a bit about that, I live in Africa and African migrates due to man-made problems; war, tribalism, child labor, slavery, religious conflict, persecution, lack of human rights, self-censorship due to lack of press freedom, poverty due to uneven distribution of resources, bogus election, corruption, anachronism in culture, nepotism and bias towards anything which they do not comprehend.
Try crossing Africa, by land, from north to south and if you arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa, in one piece then you’ve made history.

My liberal principles are simple. Anyone has the right to do what they want as long as it does not infringe on the well-being of others and within the cultural, ethical and legal frame of the society you live in.
Immigrate where you want but, in public, harmonize with the host country life-style and culture.
Worship without arrogance or contempt for religions or belief contrary to yours.

 Ground Zero is the site in Manhattan, New-York City, where twin towers called the World Trade Center were destroyed, on 11 September 2001, by two planes piloted by Al-Qaeda suicide members. The damage was massive, over 3000 persons of different nationalities and religions died, and many affected or not by this carnage have not yet found closure.
Al Qaeda is a militant group with religious ambition to install an Islāmic (caliphate) style of governance in Muslim countries.
Al-Qaeda attack on the World Trade Center created an instant misplaced hatred towards all Muslim in the US, even to the ones living there for generations.

Ground Zero by Volcomfireguy

 

Two blocks away from Ground Zero, on private property, the Cordoba Initiative, an organization founded by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, whose aim is to improve Muslim-West relations, wants to build an Islāmic learning center and a Mosque. In accordance with the US constitution and laws it has the right to do so.
The Cordoba Initiative is derisive of American sensitivity and so is Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf also Imam of Masjid Al-Farah’s mosque located twelve blocks from Ground Zero.

Imam Feisal studied and spent many years in the US but his insensibility about Ground Zero still shows lack of harmony and understanding of the American cosmopolitan culture and way of life.
His organization has the right to build an Islāmic Learning Center together with a Mosque but exercising this right shall be perceived as a malicious moral contempt to the victims of 9/11, their family and NYC and that’s definitely not the way to improve relations between Islam and the West.
