An Open Letter To The Murderers

Here is an open letter to the murderers of the Bloody Blast @ London Transits yesterday.

Excerpts: -

“I don’t think you have either the emotional quotient or the mental capacity to understand this. If you had, you would realise that Madrid was a failure, just like Sept 11. Yes, the death toll and the emotional pain these incidents cause are great.

But we, the citizens of this world, the peace-loving people of every creed, colour, faith, age and background do not buy your morally and ideological bankrupt notion of courage. You are cowards.

That’s why you dare not show your face. That’s why you target innocent people whose names are John, Jane, Antonio, Yithzak, Wong, Kim, Thabo, Mohammed, Kumar etc. You know that were you to attempt to reason and rationalise your so-called struggle, you would show the complete lack of intelligence, logic, persuasiveness or righteousness on your part.

Therefore, you are only prepared to communicate through the language of fear. Just like the school playground bully.

Well, we understand fear. We fear living in a society where there are no freedoms or liberties. We fear hate. We fear irrationality. We fear that in physically protecting ourselves, we ourselves will strangle our souls.

For all of these reasons, we do not fear you because while you can take lives, you cannot take away the basis of our civilisation. That of freedom of religion, belief, expression, of liberty, of democracy and of the desire to better and improve ourselves through work, charity, and our personal faith.

If you were courageous, you would be building schools, hospitals, homes, roads, water pipes, power stations, mosques, churches, temples, synagogues and doing unto your neighbour as you would wish they do unto you. Because you cannot, or will not, you show your lack of comprehension of what is the true nature of diligence, sacrifice, righteousness and courage.

The citizens of London (and we come from every part of the world and are believers of every faith under the sun) today and in the days to come will mourn our loss. We will grief for a season. But even during this season, we will continue to live our lives as we did before.

And many others will continue to migrate to this city to better their lives, to fulfil their dreams, and to achieve their ambitions. But as for you, you can continue to run from safe house to safe house, from foxhole to foxhole, cave to cave, country to country.You can continue to plot to maim and kill and at the same time demean your own human nature and destroy your soul. We pity you. We pray for God to have mercy on you and be gracious to you. And we forgive you because we do not want to be consumed by hate like you.


And on the day of reckoning, we do not want the account of our lives to be measured by the amount of hate we have for God’s creations and the number of eyes blinded, ears deafened, arms and legs maimed and amputated, and lives murdered.”

I am a simple man who follows no recognized 'religion' and have no 'axe to grind' against any of the religious groups. I have travelled this World for a number of years and the Good I have witnessed far overcomes the Bad.
Unfortunately, I have yet to find out what makes a man kill another human being. Money, 'Kudos', power, greed, they all play a part I'm sure, but the killings last Thursday were so indiscriminate. How can human life be regarded as such a disposable commodity ? The terribly sad aspect of this is that, in my own experience - it is impossible to reason with fanatics/zealots/terrorists, so where lies the solution ?
If the perpetrators are caught, they should be 'sectioned', as they are without doubt insane, then incarcerated until they die, on a purpose built island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean (or similar). Their faith in Allah and their allegiance to Mohammed (pbuh) would be an uninterupted source of comfort.
All that is left for me to do now is to try and teach my grandchildren to have a respectful curiosity, not fear, for the unfamiliar things in Life.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Ian,
I share your view and I have a feeling the perpetrators will never be caught (not the boss) because in all likelihood, there is something politically you and I are not aware of ...

The Madrid bombings a failure, even though the resulting goevernment pulled out of the war against the Jihadists in Iraq? I think not, unless you count the mullah-maddening legalization of homo-philiac marriages in Spain.
