Last Wednesday afternoon a Soldier was brutally attacked and killed in broad daylight and just before the tea time rush, two men were responsible for the attack and one of the men, his hands covered in blood, holding a blood stained machete confronted a bystander who was filming the event, and surprise surprise he starts preaching Islamic rhetoric about how the West should remove the troops from Islamic countries and that our Governments do not care about us, he went on to say:
“We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you.
We must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
He went on to say: “I apologise that women had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same.”
The strange thing about the last statement is the part “In our land our women have to see the same” the man spoke in a broad London accent no trace of him being from foreign climes, and according to reports he was an Islamic convert during his student years, so it begs the question, what land is he talking about? It would seem that he has never left the UK, so again some more religious bollocks being spouted by some moron who cannot think for themselves, this is the problem with religious zealots they can quote religious mantras until the cows (sacred or otherwise) come home but are incapable of forming coherent rational thoughts of their own accord, they depend on whatever leader they have to fill their heads with any reasoning that can justify their actions. I have said it before and I will say it again, Religion has no part in a 21st Century world, it was created to keep people in fear and by using imaginary deities to control the masses, we can prove there is no God through our advances in science so we should therefore eradicate religion in the same way we eradicated the Plague.
It is a frightening enough situation to think that these evil minded blinkered religious nut cases are roaming our streets but what it also does is give fuel to the fire of patriotic jingoism from the likes of Nigel Farage, of the UK Independent party and Nick Griffen of the BNP, these racist scum will live off of this event for months to further their promotion of their immigration policy that they wish to implement. This country prides itself with being diverse and free, things that we must fight to hold on to, we must look beyond this horrendous attack by these animals as not all muslims think this way, to blindly attack anyone within the muslim community solves nothing, just as countless wars, religious or otherwise, have in the past.
Have we learned nothing from our evolution over the past million years or so, violence solves nothing, it breeds violence and contempt, wars can never be won, as the famous slogan from Crass says, just look at the recent events in the Middle East no sooner were the troops out of Iraq and then Afghanistan pops up, the root cause is religious bigotry and hatred and it’s this fight that must continue, by educating the inhabitants of the planet of ours that we must strive to survive by causing the least suffering as possible.
My thoughts are with the family of the young soldier who died so brutally, no one deserves to shed this mortal coil in that brutal way.
‘Till the next time……
Anarchy, Peace, Freedom, Equality
