Did God send down mana and quail? Are the lands overflowing with milk and honey? Is there now Peace throughout the World or even Iraq?
If not, why all the jubilation? So the tyrant of Baghdad was hanged, what has this done for the truly important things in Iraq?
Im so tired as a Muslim, of fellow Muslims dancing in the streets, protesting, etc. under the strings of those diametrically opposed to those that which we stand for as a ummah. If your happy Saddam was killed, then you should have stayed home and said “Alhumdulillah” and let that be all. However, we are in the streets jubilant, like as a community we have something to be joyous about. That very same Eid wasnt so joyus for the Sunni or Shia Iraqis was it? Right after Saddam, it was business as usual.
You know what would have helped build some bridges, maybe doing what Saladin did, show the aggressor more mercy than was given to you. Maybe its just me, but that way, the Shia government and Shites in general wouldnt look like revenge-seeking puppets of the US at this point.
What’s truly saddening is how the divide between Sunni and Shia is widening, primarily because of those who are neither Sunni nor Shia. To quote brother Malcolm, we have be had, hoodwinked, run amuck… here we are dancing in the streets, protesting, etc. meanwhile our brothers and sisters are still occupied and killing one another.
And for those who were anticipating this hanging, your just as sick as the one(s) getting hanged.
Good to go Muslims, we have shown the world yet again that we are more interested in protesting and celebrating when it involves death, the calling of death, or insults, then we are about our liberation, peace, and the destruction of our radical elements.
