How Could It Get Any Worse?

posted by Suzy Shuraym

Let’s see: Islamic militants are killing school kids in Pakistan, young women who refuse to marry ISIS fighters in Syria and elderly Nigerians.

It’s hard to imagine who’s safe from these rampaging terrorists. Yes, there’s no other term that describes better the misguided men (and they’re mostly men) who think killing people is the way to usher in the caliphate.

Who needs external enemies when we have such bloodthirsty, misguided thugs claiming to be Muslim?

What If….

posted by Suzy Shuraym

“What if there were a group of Muslim open carry advocates who called themselves ‘Sword of the Prophet’ and whose avowed mission was to bring Sharia law to the U.S., and they took to showing up armed and in large numbers outside of churches on Sunday, the way the [Open Carry] guys do at the state house.

“That’s the question writer and gun owner Jon Stokes asked in this piece at Alloutdoor.com.”

Yet Another Taliban Atrocity

posted by Suzy Shuraym

pakistan“Taliban” translates quite literally as “students”, yet (as this latest atrocity confirms) the undeniably evil men who call themselves the Taliban are anything but seekers of knowledge.

Murdering more than a hundred school kids in Pakistan? Really? “Their sole purpose, it seems, was to kill those innocent kids. That’s what they did,” Major General Asim Bajwa said during a press conference.

How can that action possibly be considered as following the true path of Islam? (For that matter, how can it be considered a a step toward seeking knowledge?)

Pakistanis in southwest Asia (and elsewhere) need to rethink their stance vis-a-vis these Islamic terrorists.

The Torture Report

posted by Suzy Shuraym

As an American, it’s painful to read the recently released Torture Report (United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s report on the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques).

The only U.S. Senator who was tortured — that would be John McCain — has vociferously opposed the use of torture on American detainees.

He said the practices “fly in the face of everything that America values and stands for. It’s about us: what we were, what we are, and what we should be, and that’s a nation that does not engage in these kinds of violations of the fundamental basic human rights that we guaranteed when we declared our independence,” he said in comments reported by CBS.

We all know who the targets of these “enhanced interrogation techniques” are.

What sort of response do we — who share the same religion as these “targets” — make?
