the man who could not say sorry for his sinsWritten by malcolm james pugh
Sorry would be a start.
Though you cant take back your mistakes, and you cant unravel time, youd think there would be remorse, for such a self serving crime, to send others out to die, to pay blood price you have decreed, when its purely posturing and posing, all about vanity and greed, to secure a perceived niche in history, glowing down years, is extent of your ambition, is puny limit of your fears, when those you have sent to die, believing implicitly in you, leave relatives behind who see, that nothing you said was true, there is no thought now for those, whose number you dont count,
The Day Newsweek BungledWritten by Nathaniel Quest
More than 16 deaths were reported and dozens injured following violent protests from Afghanistan to Pakistan, Indonesia, Gaza and even to Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Arab League. So much loss of life and sufferings all on account of one article that may or may not even be true. And would you believe that article came from--Newsweek? The magazine we all grew up with and have always held to be truthful and reliable?
Why would a single article spark so much violence and unrest? Newsweek, in its May 23 edition, said that according to a "knowledgeable government source," interrogators at Guantanamo Bay had flushed at least one copy of Koran down a toilet in order to make detainees talk. We all know that detainees there are mostly, if not all, Muslims.
And what is (the) Koran? According to Wikipedia.org, Koran, or Quran, is holy book of Islam. Muslims believe that it is literal word of God revealed to Prophet Muhammad by Angel Gabriel. Muslims believe in Koran in same way as Christians believe in Bible, though belief and respect of Muslims on Koran is much more passionate. It is said that "none shall touch Koran save purified ones." Obviously, Newsweek writers alleged that not only did 'unpurified ones' touch Koran, but they even flushed it down toilet.
Now that is a really stupid thing to do--to actually have done it, and to write about it and publish it for all world to read. Isn't time we live in dangerous enough? Do we need to add more sparks to ignite more violence?
