It is now been a decade since that fateful day that shattered the mirror of America straight across. When twin towers were brought down by two jets hijacked by madmen bent on wholesale destruction. We should never forget and never forgive this atrocity perpetrated, regardless of the rationale behind it. The bodies raining downwards, screaming.
The apologists are always a-flurry: the Christians, the Judaists, they will condemn Islam wholesale while giving themselves a free pass. But this is not so. It is the self-proclaimed fiat of all religions that theirs should prevail, no matter what the cost. Because after all, the reward for the poisoned fruits of their labor is in the next life, not this one. So what cost bliss? Any cost, it seems.
The afterlife: it poisons everything in this life, for the sake of an imaginary one. If any of the hijackers believed that this life was the only one we all have, would they have given theirs so freely?
Remember, remember, the 11th of September.
Till the next post, then.
