|The head of a good man at the feet of a coward|
It didn't matter that he hadn't killed anyone or run them out of their houses. He was murdered by cowardly, weak men who would have lost had it been a fair fight. One man with a weapon fighting a man who is tied up. Only a wimp could find bravery in that action.
But one thing was different about his murder, he wouldn't make a video. Sources say that he would not co-operate, that he was an ordeal. I know that meant something to Mr. Kassig.
They can only kill you once.
For muslims who want to live this fantasy life of 7th century desert arabs, using ancient biblical laws for punishments but not for freedom, you'll end up with the same thought. Sure, you'll like the part about one religion, women being better controlled, men being seen as important. But you're not going to like all this blood and guts. You're not going to want your 3 year old having nightmares about getting their hands or heads chopped off in public. You're not going to like being an imitiation of someone else rather than be who you were born to be.
Will your daughter grow up to be a doctor or a 3rd wife?
And your son? Will he be loved by his wife or barely tolerated, as she did not get a choice in the marriage?
You can quote all the stories/hadith that you want, to prove that you are to live the life of a 7th century desert arab as the prophet bukhari dictated. But there are going to be sons and daughters who will grow to hate you as they learn the truth. The truth that you force upon them will be used as a weapon against you. Deny them the opportunity to learn, to enjoy life as it was intended, to be fully enabled to contribute to all of humanity, and they will rebel.
They will challenge the writings of the old fool bukhari, who went to a freakin fortune teller who told him to write stories. And they will join a growing force who will support your sons and daughters as they walk away from you.
But that's only the sons and daughters that will live to see a future. Your fake caliphate has you on a road of constant wars. You'll be killing shia muslims and other muslims who prefer to follow different stories than you do. Some will believe the stories that music is forbidden whilst others will follow stories that say it is allowed. You'll be spied on by your neighbours and enemies all the time. Fart during prayer and don't wudu and life is over for you. There will always be someone more religious than you...always, always, always.
And instead of living your life for God, you'll live your life to just survive the stories of the prophet bukhari. This will be your legacy.
I don't care if you have a lousy life under biblical rule (for those who don't know, the random killings of adulterers, gays, unbelievers, pagans, apostates, ect. is not in the quran as the quran was supposed to be an upgrade to the former books...funny right? They prefer the old book but still want to call themselves muslim...isn't that in itself blasphemy? Well yes it is. Especially as they don't even know the context of the ancient writings and why they were seen as the upgrade back in the day) but don't go bragging that your violence is for your god, it's because you're a lousy human being who prefers unarmed victims, just like a serial killer. There is no bravery or honour in that, only an eternity of bitter fruit in the pits of the hellfire.
When God looked down at the desert arabs he said, these are the worst of the worst and most in need of a message. Yep, that's what it says about the 7th century desert arabs that you're all trying to imitate.
You shall recite what is revealed to you of your Lord's scripture. Nothing shall abrogate these words, and you shall not find any other source beside it.18:27
Shall I seek other than God as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed? 6:114
But say not - for any false thing that your tongues may put forth,- "This is lawful, and this is forbidden," so as to ascribe false things to God. For those who ascribe false things to God, will never prosper 16:116
This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear God (2:2)
“And they will say: O our Sustainer! Behold, we paid heed unto our leaders and our great men, and it is they who have led us astray from the right path” ( 33:67)
''But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a confused condition'' (50:5)
And when you preach your Lord using Quran alone, they run away in aversion" (17:46)
"You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them" (17:36)
3:144 Muhammad is no more than an apostle: many were the apostle that passed away before him. If he died or were slain, will ye then Turn back on your heels? If any did turn back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah. but God will swiftly reward those with gratitude
5:99 The duty of the messenger is only to convey the message. God knows what you proclaim and what you hide
77:50 Then what Message, after that, will they believe in?
25:30 The messenger said, "My Lord, my people have deserted this Quran."
