Youssef M. Ibrahim - a former New York Times reporter wrote a piece concerning the Jihadists and their murdering of Muslums. He is not in favor of it. I'm certain that Youssef is now concerned for his life and it will serve the world well if we pray for him and against his enemies.
A couple quotes from the article -
The latest reliable report confirms that on average 33 Iraqis die every day, executed by Iraqis and foreign jihadis and suicide bombers, not by US or British soldiers. In fact, fewer than ever US or British soldiers are dying since the invasion more than two years ago. Instead, we now watch on television hundreds of innocent Iraqis lying without limbs, bleeding in the streets dead or wounded for life. If this is jihad someone got his religious education completely upside down.
Do the cowardly jihadis who recruit suicide bombers really think that they will force the US Army and British troops out of Iraq by killing hundreds of innocent Iraqis? US troops now have bases and operate in Iraq but also from Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Oman.
What is more important to remember is this: When the West did unite after World War II to beat communism, the long Cold War began without pity. They took no prisoners. They all stood together, from the United States to Norway, from Britain to Spain, from Belgium to Switzerland. And they did bring down the biggest empire. Communism collapsed.
I fear those naiveÃe Muslims who think that they are beating the West have now achieved their worst crime of all. The West is now going to war against not only Muslims, but also, sadly, Islam as a religion.
In this new cold and hot war, car bombs and suicide bombers here and there will be no match for the arsenal that those Westerners are putting together - an arsenal of laws, intelligence pooling, surveillance by satellites, armies of special forces and indeed, allies inside the Arab world who are tired of having their lives disrupted by demented so-called jihadis or those bearded preachers who, under the guise of preaching, do little to teach and much to ignite the fire, those who know little about Islam and nothing about humanity.

It really needs to get into the Muslum community. I have been saying it for quite a while now. The Muslum community must stand up and be counted as against the murderous thugs that are killing their own. I can say it is wrong all day and night but until the terrorists see that they will no longer be accepted, hidden and harbored in ANY Muslum place of worship they will continue their Godless acts. Until Muslums see thay are not alone in standing against the hijackers of their religion they will not stand up.
