ORIGINALLY, I HAD PLANNED to write an article about the intricacies of recruiting or something along those lines. Then the attacks in France that left 129 people dead and countless more injured happened. Though countless articles have already been written about this senseless display of hatred fueled violence that shook us not only from our sleep but at the same time blew apart the sense of peace & joy that the approaching holiday season is supposed to bring.
The first question that comes to many people’s mind is WHY as in WHY do you hate so much that you would kill innocent people? WHY? Some of these people have been trained since they were youngsters how to maim, kill and inject as much terror and bloodshed as possible. 09/ 11 proved it was a feasible to do. Why did it happen? A simple three letter word explains it all H-A-T-E! ‘I don’t know you but I do know I HATE you and therefore must kill you’
WHY? How is it conceivable hatred can be nurtured into an all-consuming feeling that all that matters is that your hate inwardly and outwardly provokes you into committing heinous act of hatred? Your issue isn’t land or something along those lines, no it is your blind hatred. The great reward that you are promised for either sacrificing your life for this “cause” is a myth. You are being sold a lie!
Instead of using your G-d given brain to think you allow yourself to be taken in by people like Abul Bakr al-Baghdidi who ordered you to carry out his mission while cowardly hiding (as did Bin Laden) inside of countries where the fighters of your intent seek to impose your law or convert people to obey your laws which have no basis when it comes to the basic sanctity of life. Your orders are to gun, bomb, take hostages to presumably use as bait until you torture and kill them were given. You did not ask WHY you just went about doing what you were told to do. The more people that died, suffered or whose lives will never be the same the more you felt a sense of accomplishment! WHY?
In places like Italy, France, Israel and even Russia to name just a few of many there is no culture of longing to kill for the purpose of killing those for whom they disagree with or feel foolishly and mistakenly oppressed by people whose arms are open. Perhaps it was a small group initially whose misdirected anger and bitterness swallowed you up inside until two World Trade Center Bombings, Lockerbie Bombings, Suicide Bomber, Burning of Children, Beheadings and on and on. Although these people must fight for their “cause” inside they don’t know what the cause is really about or what it means to them and their lives nor the lives of those who have a family.
Add the sum total of people who have been senselessly and brutally murdered these last few years you quickly come up with a gut wrenching number. Death, destruction with bloodshed aplenty was and is your mantra. Many of you were killed or permanently locked away or perhaps rightfully executed for your great deeds of destruction yet you still can’t look in the mirror to ask yourself WHY? WHY? Some families rebuilt where they could, new buildings sprung up in Manhattan, children now play in a place where you had hoped to end as much life as possible. Your “cause” failed and will continue to fail.
Do you not for a moment think nations like the United States, Russia and Israel with the touch a few buttons can eradicate you along with your followers off the face of the earth will fail to do so if you continue of your “crusades” WHY do you not have the capacity to let go of your baseless hatred? LET IT GO, LET IT GO, LET IT GO! Let go of the hate! As quickly as you learned it there is still time to unlearn it.
Some of you got away from the nets that will sooner or later drape over you to bring you to halls of justice to face your fate. No matter if you are executed by way of being electrocuted, hung or some other method your death to your “soldiers in arms” though initially praised perhaps just perhaps may cause others to wonder WHY? WHY are we doing this? WHY are we killing? Do we really think if we keep killing we can win our war for supremacy over what? What will we have won? Where is your prize? LET IT GO, LET IT GO, LET IT GO before your actions damn races of people who want nothing more than to live life in peace.
We know you are all over the world and growing in numbers! The stench of the smell of your rotting souls is smelled far and wide. As determined as you are to kill us so are we determined to stop you and put an end to what you hope to accomplish. So many before you tried and ultimately failed. So too will be your fate! Then what? Do you try to pass along to innocent children (you do) to carry on your work? Are your children who were hopefully conceived out of leave mean so little to you that you would want to see them die for a “cause” you yourself do not understand WHY?
WHY? WHY? WHY? Perhaps we will never know how you became what you are. You probably don’t even really know WHY or what it is you do. We do know it’s time (a dream perhaps) for all of you whose daily lives are driven by desire to hate to LET IT GO! When you are shown what caring and compassion does even to people like you it does not penetrate the dense layer of fog that is your hatred.
There is no prize that awaits you unless your own death is so important to you so you can get to meet this fictitious magical “person” that you are foolishly led to believe exists. When or will you ever be able to sanely answer the question WHY? LET IT GO, LET IT GO, LET IT GO! Look carefully at the twinkly eyes of former President Regan or the loving Grandmotherly smile of former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir and ask yourself WHY do I hate them?
Take a moment to listen (if you dare) to listen to the passionate words of peace as orated by the late great Martin Luther King Jr. Hate killed him but his spirit and his dream live on. You need to understand that when the physical body dies the dreams that the righteous dreamt along with the good and innocent people you killed will begin to sprout even more people like them.
Before you force some nation to use the most destructive weapon built by man to destroy you stop and think about WHY and then LET IT GO, LET IT GO, LET IT GO!
