…and anyone else this may concern
Zarqawi was a terrorist, simple as that. I donâ??t know what else I can say. Iâ??m thinking of making diagrams and flash cards to spell it out for the people who just donâ??t get it. If you are mourning him or calling him a martyr then you have lost your mind. To put “martyr” and “Zarqawi” in the same sentence is something I find offensive as a Muslim first and a Jordanian second. It is offensive to the lives of the hundreds of people he slaughtered in cold blood, people who prayed in mosques, people who were getting treatments in hospitals, people who were celebrating weddings and people attending funerals. These were all his victims and there’s no dancing around it.
Don’t tell me “well he attacked those places because he thought Americans were there”…American troops were no where near these places. And donâ??t tell me “he was there to fight/stand up to Americans”…the overwhelming majority of those he targeted and killed were Arabs, Iraqis, Muslims who had absolutely nothing to do with the occupation. And don’t tell me “he didn’t do those things, it’s an American conspiracy”…the mofo (proudly) claimed responsibility for all those actions!
It is offensive to label him as a martyr. It is offensive to my religion and it is offensive to the families of everyone he brutally slaughtered. It is offensive to the hundreds of thousands of people who marched in the streets of Amman last November calling for his death. It is offensive. It is an insult and it is a crime and it is treasonous. And I wouldn’t mind locking up people who thought otherwise.
And I don’t care about Hamas calling him a martyr. I care when IAF deputies in Jordan go to his funeral and call him a “Mujahid”, someone fighting for the “Islamic” cause. Those deputies should be removed from their seats. I would try them for treason if I could. And what was their excuse for attending the funeral? It was a religious duty, they said. They can’t pass judgement on a fellow Muslim, they said. Screw You! When a fellow Muslim turns against the Ummah and starts killing his own people in cold blood that should be some indication that he isn’t one of us, you dumbasses! And to the IAF, if these deputies spoke out of line from the party’s position then now would be a good time to condemn them and for good measure state your position clearly to Jordanians.
Now his family, who called his death an “honour” (the same people who disavowed him 7 months ago), want him buried at home? For what?! And I tip my hat to whoever that Jordanian official was who said Jordan would not “under any circumstances” allow Zarqawi to be buried in Jordan and “stain Jordanian soil.”
That’s right. He is a stain.
I literally go out of my mind when I hear things like this. Are people nuts? Is Amman too far away? Would it have been better if he attacked targets in Zarqa maybe? Would that have hit closer to home? What are these people thinking with their signs that read “martyr”?
It is shameful and it is treasonous in my opinion to praise the death of a man like this who attacked his own country and his own people. It is a crime.
And Iâ??m sorry but if you think otherwise then screw you!
Quote from Zarqawi’s funeral in Zarqa by a Sheik who probably never passed the 5th grade.
See I would love to point out a lot of the stupid notions presented by this “sheik”, but I’ll settle for him forgetting to include Jordan in his list of “infidels”. Now tell me this guy isn’t in a mosque somewhere in Zarqa brainwashing kids to be terrorists.
(I wanted to use a lot of profanity in this post but Iâ??m trying to keep a New Yearâ??s resolution)
