The True Face of al-Qaeda

My heart and prayers go out to the people of Jordan, especially the families affected (and especially including those whose wedding was indelibly marred). Recalling how we felt on 9/11, we can understand well how the Jordanians feel about their 11/9. In case there was any doubt, al-Qaeda have now proven that theirs is not a cause of Muslims against the West, but rather a cause of fundamentalist fanatics against anyone and everyone who doesn't share their perverted worldview. Now that they have directed their terror against a Muslim Arab nation, killing scores of Jordanians and Palestineans, more people in the Muslim world will see the monster for what it is. It is an amazing and powerful news image: thousands of Muslims shouting "Burn in Hell, al-Zarqawi, death to the traitor!" Let us hope that this is a tipping point.

Can you only know pain and loss through something else and when something BAD happen's to or through you? Is that then, you can only half feel, what is and really feels bad? I have read that you are a homosexual and I just think that you are a stupid fool. What are you in your life? I have children in these days and I know that we shouldn't say too much about "Straight Up" Mother and Father cause it just isn't the time for that, but you guys are in the stupidity of The Pathetic Capitalisitic way of helping ruin the world. Why do you have to have such an selfish attitude for yourself and to the world?
