Sunday May 1, 2011 was a great day in America and it should have been a great day for freedom-loving, peaceful, compassionate people all over the world. Why was Sunday May 1 such a great day for America and civilization? The world's most wanted was killed. Shot dead! Removed from the land of the living. Sent off to receive his eternal punishment. His body fed to the fishes. Swallowed up in Davy Jones's locker. Osama Bin Laden has left the planet for good. And that is a good thing.
Our military however was forced to give this murdering madman a 40-minute solemn Muslim ceremony out of respect for Muslim sensibilities. Well, I thought Osama Bin Laden was not recognized in the Muslim community as a Islamic figure. I thought he represented a "fringe" group of radical Muslims; therefore why should the mainstream Muslim community care a whit if one of these radical, religious zealots was eliminated from the planet? They should be cheering along with the rest of the world that this murdering madman was KIA. Apparently this is not the case. No one can do anything without first checking with a Muslim cleric to see if it is acceptable and does not offend their sensibilities.
I mean seriously, did we dignify Adolf Hitler with a fine Christian burial? I can understand respect for the dead, but for a madman who thinks so little of innocent human life that he ordered the mass murder of thousands on 9-11? I am sorry but I have very little respect for such a lowlife.
Should we pause every time we sentence a child killer or mass murderer to check and see how his family or religion feels about a death sentence? Should we give him a place of honor in our ceremonies? Should we make laws to be sure that we do not insult his sensibilities?
Where were the Muslim sensibilities to the thousands of innocent human lives snuffed out on 9-11? Why must the United States have to travel halfway around the world to take out their garbage? Why aren't these peace-loving, sensitive, Isl?mic clerics outraged at the killing of innocent victims by a madman? Why is there no outcry from these Muslim Clerics to the mass murdering of Christians in their own backyards? Why are these nations not cleaning up their own houses before throwing stones at ours?
Do not give me this Muslim sensibilities nonsense. They showed no sensibility to the victims of 9-11 when they proposed a huge mosque be built in the shadow of Ground Zero. They did not bother to check with the victims' families to see how they might feel about this huge Muslim presence on top of the ashes of their loved ones.
Why not release the pictures of the now deceased Osama Bin Laden? The newspapers released pictures of American soldiers killed by Muslims. I even recall the pictures of Saddam Hussein's hanging. I really do not give a rip how these Muslims feel about the United States' actions in regards to Bin Laden. The only thing I want the radical Muslims to feel is fear. I want to so awaken their sensibilities that they think twice about ever attacking an America citizen anywhere in the world ever again. I want them to fear the full force of our military breathing down their collective necks every time they even whisper a threat toward the United States. I would like to plaster their Mosques with huge posters of a dead Osama with the stern warning that this is what happens to radical Muslims who kill innocent Americans.
WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE! Preferably dead, thank you very much. Tell me, how much better off would the world be if there were fewer Osama bin Ladens around? How much better off would the world be if all radical Muslim jihadists were reduced to a minority?
In all fairness every society has its share of bad seeds, but the Middle East is drunk on the blood of Muslims killed by other Muslims. This blood lust has gone on for centuries; even before America was a nation Muslims were killing Muslims. Today the Middle East is aflame with Muslim-on-Muslim violence. Christians are marked for extermination; Israel is a target for annihilation. Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Tunisia, Somalia – the list is large of the Muslim nations whose histories are marred by bloodshed. From all accounts this would seem to be the norm for these Islamic nations.
Where there is a semblance of peace the population cowers in fear of their government, because dissenters are murdered in the streets, killed by their own government authorities. Women are treated like property and fathers are permitted to stone their own daughters to death in some Muslim societies. Truth be told that kind of behavior offends my sensibilities.
Attempts to Christianize Muslim cultures are met with fierce opposition, persecution, imprisonment, and death. These bloodthirsty murderers roam about seeking whom they may devour and justify it as defending Islam. They cry offense while murdering anyone whttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifho dares challenge their prophet or religion.
Well then Muslim sensibilities be damned. Do unto them as they have done unto others. Let them be judged according to their own actions. If they want respect and understanding perhaps they should show the same to others. Like Jesus said, "All who take up a sword will perish by a sword." (Matthew 26:25 HCS) Perhaps that will offend some Muslim sensibilities as well. So be it!
There I said it, and I meant it! What say you?

"There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent (valley of Jezreel, Galilea); not for thirty miles in either direction... One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings. For the sort of solitude to make one dreary, come to Galilee... Nazareth is forlorn... Jericho lies a mouldering ruin... Bethlehem and Bethany, in their poverty and humiliation... untenanted by any living creature... A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds... a silent, mournful expanse... a desolation... We never saw a human being on the whole route... Hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil had almost deserted the country... Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes... desolate and unlovely...".

"The Arabs themselves cannot be considered but temporary residents. They pitched their tents in its grazing fields or built their places of refuge in its ruined cities. They created nothing in it. Since they were strangers to the land, they never became its masters. The desert wind that brought them hither could one day carry them away without their leaving behind them any sign of their passage through it".
- Comments by Christians concerning the Arabs in Palestine in the 1800s -
"Then we entered the hill district, and our path lay through the clattering bed of an ancient stream, whose brawling waters have rolled away into the past, along with the fierce and turbulent race who once inhabited these savage hills. There may have been cultivation here two thousand years ago. The mountains, or huge stony mounds environing this rough path, have level ridges all the way up to their summits; on these parallel ledges there is still some verdure and soil: when water flowed here, and the country was thronged with that extraordinary population, which, according to the Sacred Histories, was crowded into the region, these mountain steps may have been gardens and vineyards, such as we see now thriving along the hills of the Rhine. Now the district is quite deserted, and you ride among what seem to be so many petrified waterfalls. We saw no animals moving among the stony brakes; scarcely even a dozen little birds in the whole course of the ride".
- William Thackeray in "From Jaffa To Jerusalem", 1844 -
"The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is of a body of population".
- James Finn, British Consul in 1857 -
"The area was underpopulated and remained economically stagnant until the arrival of the first Zionist pioneers in the 1880's, who came to rebuild the Jewish land. The country had remained "The Holy Land" in the religious and historic consciousness of mankind, which associated it with the Bible and the history of the Jewish people. Jewish development of the country also attracted large numbers of other immigrants - both Jewish and Arab. The road leading from Gaza to the north was only a summer track suitable for transport by camels and carts... Houses were all of mud. No windows were anywhere to be seen... The plows used were of wood... The yields were very poor... The sanitary conditions in the village [Yabna] were horrible... Schools did not exist... The rate of infant mortality was very high... The western part, toward the sea, was almost a desert... The villages in this area were few and thinly populated. Many ruins of villages were scattered over the area, as owing to the prevalence of malaria, many villages were deserted by their inhabitants".
