Osama oh Osama

Give me an old Arab, give him some beard and put him in blurry videos. I will think he is Osama.

When we were sad, we need reasons to justify it, we need to know why, and we need someone to blame.

I used to think that Osama is merely a character built by media to take blame for 9/11 and ruin the muslim image. I only see him form blurry videos, it can be anyone.
And I still think the same. Osama bin Laden is just a character, like Dora the Explorer.

I am not sad for his death nor I am happy. Just exactly how I feel if people tell me,” Dora The Explorer will no longer be aired.” There will be new boring character built to ruin the excitement whenever I watch TV, I just don’t understand Dora, does she has parents? Why her parents let her explore dangerous places? Ridiculous!

Don’t get me wrong, 9/11 was a major blow to humanity, and it made me sad. But I don’t let my sadness clouds my logic and just swallow everything to make me think that there is explanation behind all this, there is somebody to blame out there. And that’s how we deal with everything now, as long as we get to point our fingers to someone, we will feel safer. Why? I don’t know. This world is never safe, what are you thinking?!

So, weather this Osama guy exists or not, weather he was the one to blow the building or not, please stop all the hate. It is no use, will not give us any good. So, he’s dead, celebrating his death OR cursing the ones who celebrate are both awful choices. Stop it, please…

I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

    Nicely put Sister Ria. No one knows whether this guy exist or not!! 😀
    On Monday, on my way back from class when everybody was saying Osama died and stuff and that moment our driver who was Pathan said, “Sister you know in my area(he belongs from some rural area; so-called Taliban majority area) 20 times Osama died and every other day they killed someone (resembling to Osama) and say we have shot Osama dead and told me he’s already dead!! :O
    LOL 😀
    It was hard time for Pakistanis during 9/11!! 😦
    People were afraid wearing Hijab or having beards while their travel to US!! *sigh* alhamdulillah days passed!!

    LOL! Ria, you crack me up!! 🙂

    But yes, I totally agree with you about Osama Bin Laden. I mean c’mon, these are the people who supposedly put a man on the moon! I have a hard time swallowing the things America spouts! 😛

    So what we are know About Justice Obama ? what our Country Know about Justice , 9/11 just a one reason,behind all of this medias under their controls, before 9/11 what they are did, supports the Israel to Kill innocent people and children palestene,and still supporting to the terror israel, same in iraq and afghan killing innocent childrens,any relations b/n 9/11 and the these childrens?,if No, then why they are talking about peace and justice? this is Haqq , So peoples ,please dont Talk about Justice …peace to this world without palestene, iraq and Afghan,
    No doubt Bin-Laden must b punished if convictd. But is it not an utter shame for America that it took 10 years, death of 100s of army personnel & Billions of dollars to kill an 80 yr old kidney patient.

      And actually the problem with you is, your are not being objective. we are talking about 9/11. Not the other issues. This is wat’s wrong with muslims, they get emotional and blinded.
      Stick to one issue, don’t mix it all up. Be just.

    exactly, many more related issues to ourselves need to be taken care of.

    I’m with you here… I think we have every right to be cynical and suspicious. Have you ever heard the expression “If it didn’t exist, someone would have to invent it”?- that’s what I always thought of OBL, real or not he was a very useful propaganda tool. Now Obama has boosted his flagging popularity, Americans can boost their fragile patriotism, and everyone can be told we’re winning the War on Terror. Ho hum. As soon as the news came through that OBL had been killed by American forces I turned off the tv, and I haven’t been giving the media hype surrounding it much attention since. Politics is a world of shadows, illusions and lies- so treat it with caution!
    And one more thing- The Prophet(SWS) said that even if you have to kill the enemy you should never celebrate and be happy about it, always be sad that someone had to die.

      Exactly, and don’t respond to anything when we’re emotional.

      Thank you for telling us the hadith, sr. Halima.
      Always love your insights.
      xoxo
