For surely the brothers and their accomplice who ignited the bombs in the airport and set off the explosion on the subway did not do so believing they were blasting themselves to hell for all eternity. One has to assume they hoped to be martyrs to their faith if they slaughtered infidels to terrify and expel such as these from the Islamic world and advance the coming of the caliphate of which the Prophet preached.
And where might they have gotten such ideas?
Kasich’s word, radical, comes from the Latin “radix,” or root. And if one returns to the roots of Islam, to the Quran, does one find condemnation of what the brothers did – or justification? Andrew McCarthy was the prosecutor of “the Blind Sheikh” whose terrorist cell tried to bring down a World Trade Center tower in 1993 and plotted bombings in the Holland and Lincoln tunnels.
The U.S. government depicted the sheikh as a wanton killer who distorted the teachings of his faith. Yet, McCarthy discovered that Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman was no imposter-imam, but “a globally renowned scholar – a doctor of Islamic jurisprudence who graduated from al-Azhar University in Cairo, the seat of Sunni Islamic learning for over a millennium.” Seeking to expose the sheikh as a fraud who had led his gullible followers into terrorism, against the tenets of their faith, McCarthy discovered that “Abdel Rahman was not lying about Islam.”.
“When he said the scriptures command that Muslims strike terror into the hearts of Islam’s enemies, the scriptures backed him up. When he said Allah enjoined all Muslims to wage jihad until Islamic law was established throughout the world, the scriptures backed him up.”..... “Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide.”
My Take - Well, the more we learn about Kasich the less impressed we must become. I've met him and I think he suffers from a serious case of weird compounded by a massive infection of hubris.
From his past performances to promote Obamacare as a mandate from God we know he's a bad theologian.
From his position on gay marriage and God's love, we know he's a heretic.
From his position on Islam we know he's a bad historian.
From his position on illegal immigration we know he's not a conservative.
From his position that he balanced the budget and cut taxes we know he's a liar.
In fact, he's clearly demonstrated one thing for sure. He's demonstrated all the qualities that would have made him an excellent candidate for the Democratic nomination as President of the United States this year, except he doesn't accept abortion. But, neither did Dennis Kucinch until he ran for President in his party - the party of treason and infantacide. I wonder how far left Kasich would go in his heresy?
I wouldn't be surprised if Hillary offered him a spot on the ticket as her Vice President he accepted. After all - if she should die in office she would have someone just like her to take over.
