The Seeds of Destruction by Akindele Akinyemi
I am watching on live television of how Lebanon and Israel is going at it. Muslims vs Jews on live TV.
Catch it on CNN, MSNBC, Fox or hell even regular TV.
Do I smell a bigger conflict growing?
Many preachers who want your money like Jack Van Impe foam at the mouth over these type of events. Basically, they are saying that Jesus is coming so we have to kill those in Islam so Christ can come riding in his Escalade with spinners and navigation system with GPS.
Ok, I'm being silly but there is something bigger in the horizon. I remember practicing Islam a long time ago about the Arab World coming together to crush America and Israel. It looks like that is happening.
People need to understand when President Bush says we are fighting a war on terrorism that is what we are doing. Not just from a military standpoint but also an educational standpoint.
In the center of this conflict can we say Iran? Hezbollah is flexing its miliary muscle thanks to Iran. Syria and Iran are networking. Iran is building an $1 billion telecommunications system in Iraq. Jordan is quiet for the time being but do not think they will be left out of the equation. Hamas is also in the game as well to the south in Israel.
Israel, on the other hand, receives tax dollars directly from the United States. It is the only state in the Middle East with nuclear weapons.
I have a firm understanding of Islam. Many people feel Islam is evil. I could say the same thing about Christianity. However, real Islam has nothing to do with Al-Qaida, Hezbollah, Hamas, Taliban or even the Baath Party. Those are called Islamic Fundamentalists. They are the ones who want to stay in 400 BC and have their women walk behind their men, cover their ankles, hands, etc.
Islam, as being practiced presently, is not in its pristine purity. It is being used as a vehicle of conquering.
Terrorism is real and it's about time we took a stand with our President and those Americans who would like to see Democracy. Do you think any of these Islamic Fundamentalists would give you democracy?
Black people in the inner cities should understand that war is a process and the loss of life is great. We are quick to point out the Haitian Revolution or revolutions that were fought on the African continent during the late 50s and early 60s. We praise this effort, yet, when our country is engaged in liberating people we call out impeachment to our President.
People do not understand what life is like living in an Islamic state. Being told what to do, how to worship and who to marry.
These are the seeds of war. Are we involved in World War III already? Yes. North Korea will not back down nor will Iran. The question is will we back down as citizens in this country? More importantly, are we going to demonstrate our self-hatred towrds ourselves and our country?
