America, Jihad is Coming! By nevine Al Seidi |
Friday prayers on 28th March lasted for hours in all mosques of Cairo ( and all Islamic countries) pushing Arabs for Jihad. Jihad, is fighting in name of God enemy of God. The concept of Jihad ( Arabic for Struggle) lies in belief of irrelevance of human life next to interest of land and people. Any true Muslim believes in Jihad, be that a member of Al Qaeda, a member of Hizbullah or a member of a football team. I understand how difficult it is to Western mind to comprehend idea of sacrificing your own life for an idea, a belief, or God. In West, where culture is about celebrating life and preserving it against all odds and gods, suicide attacks are merely incomprehensible. Commenting on Iraqi suicide bomber who lured four American soldiers to his cab handing them a bomb that killed him with them received a typical comment from Capt. Valles. He said: " I don't understand what motivated this guy to kill himself. To me, this is not an act of war. It is terrorism.. a man in a civilian vehicle killing himself at a checkpoint". Nicknaming Jihad terrorism is very unlikely to make it go away. As long as there is Islam on this globe, Jihad in name of it will live. No amount of threats, bombs, deprivation, destruction, so-called liberation wars or name-calling will stop it. The only thing that can stop Jihad is to back off from Islamic territory. Trust me on this one! In Iraq, civilians are inventing ways of taking American and British life. Incredulous of such human sacrifices, both American and British media insist that Iraqi army fight in civilian attire! The fact is that even women, housewives from villages are fighting war with Iraqi army which exceeds 1.5 million persons! You probably have heard of Mayssoon Hameed who shot an enemy tank using an RBJ she never used in her life. She became a national symbol in and outside Iraq. Call her a terrorist if it makes you any happier. Arabs are all Mayssooons, all terrorists to borrow your diction. The danger that American forces in Iraq is facing is that they are fighting 26 million Iraqis on their territory that covers desert land, villages and towns and cities. They are not fighting Saddam and his government. Those 26 millions happen to bear nationality of descendants of Prophet. In emergency time, they are bound to act as one against enemy , no matter what sort of differences existed among them.
What If TV News Had Covered D-Day?Written by Rusty Cawley
Imagine: What if today’s American TV news had been there to cover D-Day, June 6, 1944?
“Good morning, this is Peter Jennings at ABC News in Washington with this special report. The War Department is confirming this morning that Operation Overlord, Allied invasion of Normandy, is now in motion. Unfortunately, news from battleground is grim for American forces. Despite attacking with largest military force in history, Allies appear to have lost this battle before it has begun. We start our coverage with reporter Terry Moran, who is embedded with U.S. Army forces at a stretch of Normandy that War Department has designated ‘Omaha Beach.’”
Terry Moran: “Peter, here at Omaha Beach, everything that could have gone wrong has gone wrong. The Allies sent 29 amphibious support vehicles to this site. Of those, 27 have sunk. We are pinned down by German gunfire. In addition, we now know entire beach is heavily mined along its six-mile expanse. Observers tell us they expect that more than 2,400 Allied soldiers will die in next few hours. We now go to reporter Martha Raddatz, who is embedded with forces at Utah Beach.”
Martha Raddatz: “News is no better for Allies here at Utah Beach. A navigational error placed Allied forces several miles to north of their intended landing site. As a result, Allies are running into less resistance than expected, but they are also giving Germans an opportunity to strengthen their defenses before attack is joined. It appears that Allies have committed crucial mistake that will cost them war. Now we shift to Juno Beach and reporter Dan Harris.”
Dan Harris: “Here at Juno Beach, Allies are having to deal more with reefs and shoals than with bullets and grenades. The landing crafts arrived too late to avoid these natural barriers. As a result, an estimated 30 percent of crafts have been crushed before they could reach shoreline. The Allies likely will suffer 1,200 dead on this beach alone as Operation Overlord stumbles onward. Back to you, Peter Jennings.”
