Who Is Allah?

There are 254914 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Had matter, mind and vital evolved from a pre-involved state of harmony based on the unified principle instead of emerging from an unregenerate state of division, ignorance, struggle and suffering, the earth nature would have manifested a high degree of perfection from the start that would have kept getting better with each higher emergence of consciousness and most importantly the absence of perversion, suffering, ignorance, poverty, wars, personality defects, religion, bigotry, diseases and death would have been common features of existence from the beginning.

Now, the ascent to the first lights of perfection is a struggle as the mental, vital and physical insturmental aspects of nature and being are based on the Ignorance where division, struggle, perversion, decomposition, diseases, death, suffering, fanaticism, blood letting, cruelty, wars and other negatives rule and these will have to be dissolved by the infusion of the unified supramental principle before It will be a long and arduous march ahead....till then we're stuck with the ignorant and evil teachings of the prophets and the half-lights of science.

You know, Buford ole buddy, I care not that you lambast radical Islam. But at this time I care that you are doing it by political satire. It is inappropriate when 4 people have died, hundred were injured, and approximately 60 are still hospitalized. Their families deserve better from us not to satirize what occurred. I have no problem with the way you gave your message above. I only ask that you please respect the victims.
Unctuous Eric,

If I'd had my legs blown off in Boston by those "misguided souls" and had internet access from my hospital bed, do you believe that I wouldn't still have posted what you consider to be "political satire" in the name of one "Tamerlan Tsarnaev," a most devout MUSLIM who had lethal anger management issues?

Come to think of it, I'm also a victim of these bombings and shootings as much as anyone else who has been following this story. We were ALL targeted PSYCHICALLY, but the vast majority of us were PHYSICALLY saved by the fact that the pressure cooker bombs simply WEREN'T BIG ENOUGH to main and kill us all, "ole buddy."

read this - it gets in to the sociology of the Chechen Islamists - what is real, what it not, what is radical Islam, what it Chechynan
Its the kind of nuance that I appreciate - and which is pathologically absent from most of the US media, espcially the conservative media

Interesting read! I'm reminded of Carlos the Jackal, only he wasn't Chechen.

Excerpt:

Another thought is that they weren’t really taking directions from anyone. You can see how the older brother, Tamerlan, might have felt like a failure, disappointing his father by dropping out of college, with a boxing career that never materialized. People who knew them say the younger brother was under his sway. Probably someone like that, who felt so powerless, would be very attracted to the powerful super-warrior image of Chechens. That along with the fiery certainty of Islamist rhetoric might be pretty tempting to a young man who felt weak and lost.

Excerpt:

I’m not really in the mood to write a column. The reason why I’m in a foul disposition is I just saw the picture, taken a few minutes before the Boston blast, of the Muslim POS, better known as “Suspect #2”, dropping off his backpack filled with a pressure cooker bomb right behind eight-year-old Martin Richard, his little sister Jane, his mom Denise and scores of others. This image made me both sick and pissed off.

Minutes after this picture was captured, as we now know, Martin would have nails and buckshot blast his body to smithereens, Jane would have her little leg severed from her frame and their mom would have shrapnel penetrate her head at 3300 feet per second -- leaving both her and little Jane clinging to life and Martin dead on the street. This left me thinking:“What kind of jacked up people do this kind of crap?”

Well, by and large, it is the “Religion of Peace” who does this kind of crap with great regularity, that’s who.

If you’re not hearing this on the evening news please allow me to inform you that two Muslim young men did this. Not right-wingers, as Chris Matthews and Peter Bergen predicted early on. Not Evangelicals or Catholics as the DHS has warned Americans repeatedly to be on the look out for. Nor was it your generic “angry white bogey man” that Salon’s writer David Sirota had hoped; but at least two male Muslims between the ages of 18-35.

I say “at least two” because early on there was a Saudi national that everyone was real interested in who, by the way, will be deported next week. This is the same cat that Michelle Obama secretly visited in the hospital last Thursday. I sure wish that young Saudi male could hang out a few more days here in the states and we could have someone seriously interrogate him; but alas, Big Government says he’s got to go back home and quick.

How quaint. And how strange…

As stated at the outset of this screed, I’m in no mood to write. However, I would like to wrap this piece up by saying two more things: One -- my prayers are with the victims of this baseless slaughter of innocent human lives by Muslim men, again. And Two – you can bet your last buck that if I see a backpack dropped off by a religion of peacer behind a crowd of kids I’m going to tackle that mule.

Call me judgmental.

The real question up for debate is whether radical Islam is a separate religion from Islam, Islam itself, or somewhere in between. BMZ takes the position that it IS a separate religion, and you take the position that it IS Islam itself. Both of you would agree that the value system is not very nice.

It is interesting. The boys were Chechen but yet they were part of the post-Stalin Chechen diaspora that was exiled to Kyrghizstan. So they werent (as)Chechen. Then they spent some of their formutive years in the US - though Boston is obviously not the heartland - if anything their neighborhood was mainly Jewish/Israeli and Arab. So I could see the older one needing an identity and becoming "Chechen" via extremists, or Islam via extremists, or some type of combo. Its possible that the Chechen culture played virtually no role in his indoctrination other than providing him the gateway to encounter Islamic extremists....

rabbee: yeah! just like catholicism, is a seperate religion from the inquisition.

given the chance to rear their ugly head, all religions have done that. as long as they only thought, they could get away with it.

To be call idiot is the least, because as soon as one criticizes about Muhammad, that Muslim, in most cases, will try to phisically hurt you, if not killing you.

I guess such an ordinary behaviour is not considered radical Islam but civilized Islam, hence they are right, after all.
