My Childhood Friend, the ISIS Jihadist: A Modus Operandi repeating all over Europe.

“Am I an unbeliever then?” I ask.

“What do you mean, brother?”

“I am happy to live in Denmark. I don’t think I want to live in the Caliphate.”

“Hopefully, one day you will be led on the right path. Then you’ll see how beautiful an Islamic state is.”

“But what if I don’t want to be led on the right path? What then?”

Amir looks at me questioningly.“What do you mean?” he asks.

“I mean there’s also the possibility that we two are just different and want to live in different ways. That the one does not have to convert the other.”

“Just take it easy, my friend. Inshallah [If God wills], you will be guided onto the right path,” he says.

We walk on for a bit without saying anything.

I think through the paradox that the man I am speaking to on the one hand praises fanatic movements like Islamic State, and on the other seems like a loving and old forgotten friend.

Amir asks me about my family. He says he remembers my fifth birthday, my father’s mustache and that he has seen my articles and wondered how I was doing.

Our walk continues with exchanges of old memories: angry concierges, mythical football stars, dog excrement in the park and the old woman with stubble we both were so afraid of.As we approach our childhood home, the door is open into the yard.

Amir suggests we go in to avoid the noise from the cars on the road. I tell him the story about our game of hide and seek that ended up starting our friendship.

Then Amir says something that surprises me: “You are still my friend. Aren’t I your friend, too?”

“Yes, of course,” I answer, without meaning what I say.

We look at each other and a couple seconds of awkward silence follows.

Dear muslim friends: I was thinking about Anti-Islamism tonight.

In the last days, Boko Haram has killed 142 people in attacks in Nigeria, while more than 60 people were killed yesterday in a funeral bombing in Sadr City (Iraq), and some 75 ppl died in Pakistan after they bombed one of the very few churches in that country, and of course, news of today tell us how Al-Shebap somali islamist militias have killed more than 65 people in an attack against customers of a mall in Kenia… and now Kenian and Israeli soldiers are trying to finish them before they kill the rest of the kidnapped terrorised innocent customers. (Apparently they let muslims get away and killed or retained the rest). Some annalists say this bloodshed only works in increasing their numbers.

All this has happened in…3 days?…. and I am sure the list is widely extensive, not talking abt Egypt, Turkey, Syria,… and many other places. 

I can be absolutely sure that all these guys were smiling and shouting Allahu Akhbar while carrying on these actions. All of them.

My dear muslim friends: I am starting to have enough.

I tend to be conciliatory and try to keep cold mind and remember that a huge majority of you are very normal people who would not kill a fly, same as most non-muslims.

But I am having enough. Enough of fake sorrow. Enough of fake condolence expressed by words but not by actions. Am having enough of hearing that all this is caused by CIA, Israel, and whatever… when we all know that all those crazy bastards who smile while killing in the name of their God have been taught and inspired by imams in mosques, in madrasas, in charity associations, with verses of the same Qur’an you pray with.

And you do NOTHING.

3.bild

You do nothing to stop this bloodshed. To expulse those who recruit young guys and brainwash them to send them to fulfill Death’s plan.

You do nothing against those who appear to be the main brake for the social, cultural and historical development of every muslim nation. Many of you just complain that all this is orchestrated by US, Israel and whatever,… turning a blind eye to the fact that every trigger, every button, every mobile, every carbomb, every throat-cutting knife,…. has been managed by the hand of a so-called devote muslim who killed, or died killing, and shouting…  Allahu Akhbar.

… and you will do NOTHING about it.

You will say that they are not real muslims, that they are mistaking islam and you will complain abt it but you will do nothing, except eventually blame US, Israel, Russia or eventually the Gulf monarchs, or start a dissertation about different islamic sects, kinds, schools, approaches, cultures, ethnias….

Today I heard someone around here, saying in full anger abt muslims… “they should be all killed… all of them,…. just in case.” ..and also “bit by bit they are adding reason to the ways of israelis.”

The one who said this is not an american redneck retard. He is not an incult.

His level of tolerance for islam is simply reaching zero.

Mine is not as that…. mostly because I know many of you, my dear muslim friends, and I know that for you, as for most muslims, Islam is a way for peace. But we are starting to have enough of perceiving such inaction in muslims. Even if it was to clean the name of their belief, against those among them who stain their faith and its supposed values.

IT’S NOT OUR TASK TO GET INVOLVED IN CLEANING UP YOUR RELIGIOUS STABLISHMENT SHAMES. MOSTLY BECAUSE FOR US, EVEN THIS ANGER IS NOT RELIGIOUS. 

WE , MOSTLY A SOCIETY OF DISBELIEVERS IN CHURCH, BUT WITH A CHRISTIAN CULTURAL AND RELIGIOUS BACKGROUND, ARE NOT BACK IN MIDDLE AGES, COPYING THE DOCTRINE OF A HOLY WAR THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY ALIEN TO JESUS’ TEACHINGS.

WE LEARNT THAT LESSON AND MADE A CHANGE IN ALL THAT: NO MORE “DEUS LE VOLT”. GOD DOESN’T WANT US TO KILL IN HIS NAME. PERIOD.

SO IF WE GO AT WAR INTO A MUSLIM AREA, LAND, NATION, … IS FOR POLITICS, NOT FOR RELIGION. PERIOD.

BLAME POLITICIANS AND TARGET POLITICAL OBJECTIVES BUT LET RELIGION ASIDE. PERIOD.

Or we, same as happened in the Middle Ages, will also end up developing those ideas about (un)holy wars, something we have massively abstained of doing all over developed countries, you know?

For everyone’s sake, it’s you who must evolve, once for all. Before we go back with you. Because idiocy is extremely contagious. 

The cause for war (FOR ALL WARS, STUPID!) is politics, territory, resources, power… SO KEEP IT AS THAT. And stop teaching people that it’s because God is great. That simply ashames God more than anything.

KHALÁS!

Clean your own mess, instead of looking for someone to complain for it. 

It takes courage for saying this openly. True Courage.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), I am willing to die for you, but not live like you

 The Express Tribune Blog.

….Specially in Pakistan, considering how things are…  specially talking so direct and openly about Pakistanis, considering how things are,… and being Pakistani himself. And courage must be honoured.

Specially when it sets an example to follow, for muslims…. and for those of us, like myself,  who are not.

We should all be able to slap our people’s vices. Because we can say that we love our land and the people we belong to.

Precisely for that.
