Deep Sorrow, Frustration & Anger

The horrible news from London yesterday fills me with deep sorrow, frustration and anger.
My thoughts go to the families of the innocent victims and their families. This was yet an outrageous attack on a western democratic state to create havoc and incite hatred.

Do not for a moment let yourself be lured into believing that this has anything whatsoever to do with religious beliefs or cultural norms. It has as little to do with Islam and Muslims as the Crusades once had to do with fighting for Christianity or Christians.

No, these horrendous and vile acts of terror are all orchestrated to intimidate and disrupt the people of the western democracies as a part of a struggle for power, influence and money. The puppeteers behind this unprovoked violence are more likely to be found in Moscow, Peking and Pyongyang than in Baghdad, Beirut or Tehran.

    Crusades had nothing to do with fighting for Christianity???

    1. Exactly, "fighting for Christianity" and "liberating the Holy Lands from Muslim rule" was a convenient and handy excuse for fouler motives such as financial gain or the wish to establish European colonies in the area, or for purposes of enriching a particular country, government, knight or the Church itself.

  2. That religion is an extremely dangerous mental virus is not questionable!
