A Scourge Has Been Eliminated- And To Rejoice is Proper
“The western dogs are rejoicing after killing one of our Islamic lions. From Al-Aqsa Mosque, where the future caliphate will originate with the help of God, we say to them – the dogs will not rejoice too much for killing the lions. The dogs will remain dogs and the lion, even if he is dead, will remain a lion.”
These are the words of the Al-Aqsa mosque’s imam. They are meant to describe that the "dogs" of America should not celebrate the killing of Osama bin Laden, who in this metaphor, is a "lion."
Typical fundamental Islamic rhetoric; America is evil, Islam is righteous. But pertinent to note are two things.
First, we notice that once again Glenn Beck has been proven correct in his assessment that fundamental Islam seeks to reestablish a caliphate. As this is directly from the horse’s mouth, it is now quite beyond dispute. But don't hold your breath for the mainstream media to repudiate their own false and irresponsible assault on Beck for making that claim. That would take a modicum of integrity. And they don't have it.
Second, we notice the glaring implausibility of the metaphor. The lion has for thousands of years been a symbol of heroism, bravery, and strength. To conclude that Osama bin Laden exemplified any of these things can only be a perversion of reason. The animal kingdom has no representative that could be compared to bin Laden without insult to the animal he is compared to. To find such sickness, we have to look to our own species.
His disease showed amalgamated symptoms of cult leaders and serial killers. He was capable of corralling young followers to worship in his twisted manner, but rather than being solely self-destructive like the Heaven's Gate or Jonestown cults, bin Laden found personal value and happiness by sending indoctrinated children on suicide missions meant to bring sorrow and death upon thousands of innocent people.
Osama bin Laden was no lion. He was a scourge upon the Earth; the worst mankind is capable of becoming. And yes, we rejoice in his death, because this means his life cannot continue poisoning humanity. I am delighted in the manner in which he was killed- meeting an American bullet to pay for his enormous crimes against our country. And I am equally contented to think that he was laid to his torment in the sea, drifting fathoms below humanity, rather than putrefying the ground of some accessible grave that would only become a monument to his followers.
