America has been The Great Satan to many Arab Muslims over the decades. It is that hate of America and the West that al-Qaeda tapped into to become a beacon of hope that Islam would attain victory over America. But when the war came to the Arab homeland in Iraq, things changed. al-Qaeda became exposed as another vicious cancer up humanity, more akin to Hitler and the Nazis than any golden age of humanity. And now al-Qaeda, by their own sick atrocities on their fellow Arab Muslims, has been shown to be the true agent of evil:
“There are the bloodstains on the wall, and here it is dried on the floor,” Abu Muhanad said as he walked through a torture chamber in a Baghdad mosque where more than two dozen bodies have been found.
“And here, a woman’s shoes. She was a victim of the militia. We found her corpse in the grave.”
Chunks of hair waft lazily across the floor in the hot Baghdad breeze.
“This was the torture room,” said Muhanad, the leader of a U.S.-backed armed group that now controls the mosque.
I saw this report on CNN last night (see below) and it was horrific. It makes you wonder how such evil could exist in humanity. But it also reminded me of something I posted back in late May when the Mahdi Army were on the run:
There are some very naive and delusional liberals who still think the Iraq government victory over the Mahdi Army criminals is actually a victory for Sadr and his Sadrists movement. But they are simply grasping at straws so they do not have to face how pathetically wrong they have been on the Maliki action itself, the war in Iraq and the war on terror generally. The fact is the Sadrists and al-Sadr gave political cover for heinous crimes commited by the Mahdi Islamo Fascists as they raped and killed their fellow Muslims. Once Basra and Sadr City were liberated it was only a matter of time that these atrocities would start to be reported and become public, as told by the people who were being oppressed.
I predicted this would be the actual fallout from the liberation of the Shiite areas of Iraq from the jackboot of the Mahdi Militia. Like all Islamo Fascists they are obsessed with committing the most brutal of crimes against their fellow humans. It is their deep insecurity that drives them to hate, and then punish, those who have successfully evolved with the modern world. It is their acidic insecurity that drives them to rape and torture those who represent what they can never be. This is the ugly side of inciting the failures in life to a messianic cause – they get god complexes and start meting out punishment with gusto and glee.
Their horrific atrocities are now the indelible story of al-Qaeda’s vision of Islam. It repulses most humans and must send a shiver of fear through most Muslims. I applaud CNN for going back and reminding all of us why we fought in Iraq, and why we redoubled our efforts to achieve victory in Iraq. This is the story of how America defeated some of the greatest evil to walk this planet:
OK – seems CNN’s embed code is not working on the main page here, so while we figure this out here is the link to the CNN website, or you can click the title of this post and it go to a single page view and it should work.
The Muslim Street is not going to go willingly into this nightmare.
