Is this what justice has come to?
Millions of people are dead in the name of God/freedom/democracy.
Livelihoods destroyed. Futures ripped apart and torn into pieces.
And the death of one man constitutes as justice?
I want answers. I want the truth out. I want the name of Islam cleared of all he has done.
But I guess that won't be happening now.
We'll have to wait for Allah's Court of Judgement.
I do hope people come to their senses and realise what the meaning of justice is.
I just hope it would bring world peace and that there would be no violent reactions anywhere.
so many questions unanswered, so much injustice. Allahu Alam.
I think it is so true, and it sums up what I feel. Sure, so many people have gotten closure, but it's a little silly to claim that "justice has been achieved" since it took so many years, millions of innocent deaths, wars, loss of money, time, and deteriorated the relation between Muslims/non in the west -- all which I don't think is equitable to the justice of killing one man.
So the next question should be whether his death is gonna put an end to the sufferings of the Iraqs, Afghans, Palestinians etc.
Oh Allah, please guide us with the truth.
And somehow I don't seem to believe it either.
Ayuni: I think most people can't believe it.
Sorlisa: What can we expect from the American govt?
Nubenegra: Wa alaykummusalam. I agree, the moment he wasn't needed anymore he is killed. How convenient.
ilyannur: Ya, mungkin betul. Anything is possible these days!
Aracy Flavia: I think many, many people feel the same way. His alleged death doesn't bring closure except to those who are blinded by the "war on terrorism". The truth is we don't have answers but are left with more questions.
Bitten: What about the end of other forms of terrorism happening around the world? Thanks to American propaganda terrorism is now synonymous to Islamists and Muslim extremists and women who wear hijabs and niqabs.
Yunne: Hmmm... interesting indeed. Anything is possible really because we don't see his body as evidence. Buried at sea? Who on earth came up with that idea?!
soso: It is but it has been interesting to find out people's reactions.
hijabi hippie hypo: I've been looking at documentaries on wars for the last one week and I'm just shattered at the intensity of injustice that has been happening in the world since God's know when and it's all because of people and their desperation for power. It's.. just.. unbelievable..
Misha: The word justice is a dirty word now, isn't it?
Dilan Dilir: Just saying what I feel sis.
Feda: I think Osama deserves to be punished for all he has done but his death has only glorified the American government and it hasn't led to any answers whatsoever. Allahu3alam - only God knows best and He is the best Planner of all.
Anon: It's clear to me that true justice doesn't exist in this imperfect world of ours.
Zarine: I know right? Body thrown at sea?! Come on! I thought the US government would think people are smarter than that.
Hijabs & Co: I don't think the West, in general, is at war against Islam but it does feel that way sometimes doesn't it? Especially as you are in France - you would feel the heat of the hijab and niqab ban.
As for some of you feeling that the West is against Muslims, I think you are neglecting to acknowledge the fact that Western governments aren't fighting Muslims, they are fighting terrorists who happen to call themselves Muslims.
I often wonder where all the good Muslims are when your brothers are killing each other in suicide bombings. If you want the rest of the world to respect you, you need to let us know loud and clear that you do not agree with such actions. Otherwise, we have to assume your silence equals complicity.
I fully support France's ban on women covering their faces. There is simply no place for this practice in Western culture, just as there is no place for wearing tank tops in public in Islamic countries. If Muslims don't agree with Western culture, and are not willing to integrate into Western society, then what are they doing living in Western countries?
