You are turning innocent, bright-eyed little girls into flattened, oozing pulp because of an un-provable belief. You are randomly butchering living, caring human beings because you see them as infidels. You are smearing the walls of airports and bus stations with the intestines of grandmothers because you believe that your god is better than their god.
You are committing these atrocities FOR WHAT? The innocents that you massacre did you no harm and did not even know you. WAKE UP!!! Behold what you are actually doing. You are slaughtering these breathing, dreaming, amazing human beings because of what - because of ideas, verses in a book, dogma, and taunts from a pulpit. These are all ABSTRACTIONS! These are NON-LIFE, and you are exterminating REAL LIFE because of them. Such blind conduct is both obscene and absurd. How would you like me to enter your home and gun down your children in the name of Geometry?
Let me address some of your abstractions. Your supposed god, Allah, has been a scourge on humanity for nearly as long as the other two main “sky-god” religions. And yet in the thousands of years of their supposed existence, there has been no clear and decisive manifestation of any of these gods to the people of Earth. If they are so all powerful, why have they not made an appearance to silence the millions of non-believers who have doubted them down through the centuries? We only learn of them through the rantings of reality-challenged males who supposedly can part the seas and resurrect themselves from death and ascend into the sky on a winged horse.
And yet, to serve your invisible god in the sky, you would let your truck of death disembowel an innocent little girl. You will never witness her as she clings to her little doll and tries to understand the instant, unbearable pain that overwhelms her like a bright white blackness. And what kind of future has your viciousness and your Allah bequeathed her parents whose lives are now forever darkened with a despair that can never be healed?
Here is another one of your abstractions that manifests itself in the most horrific manner - Jihad or Holy War. Can you not see the sickness at the very core of any concept that must be spread by the sword? Would you choose anything that has to be forced upon you? And yet you see no madness in imposing your religion with the pin of a grenade. Perhaps you even rejoice at the sight of a terrified grandmother soiling herself as you detonate every living being near you.
And what type of Holy Warrior attacks unprotected civilians - the type who is actually an Unholy Coward. This type is also a tactical idiot. Who could possibly perceive such despicable acts of terror as a means of winning the hearts and minds of potential supporters? But when one has been hypnotized by another un-provable abstraction – the one which claims that martyrs to the cause of jihad will be serviced by dozens of virgins after they immolate the infidels – then one’s judgment is demented.
Certainly, I will not deny that some of your jihadist rage stems from blowback to the hideous suffering that the West has imposed upon you with its bombs and drones and soldiers. But the ordinary, little people of Europe and North America did not initiate that nor did they support that. And so when you target them for your crusade of carnage, you are only intensifying the absurdity of your assertion that Islam is the Religion of Peace.
Try proving that to the families whose loved ones were just splattered mercilessly on a sidewalk and street in Southern France.
