This was a discussion that took place on Facebook. I’m sharing it here to spread the positive sides of the debate, inshallah. Please note, Darryl is an ol’ friend of mine from school that I’ve reconnected with via Facebook:
I’ve been away (from blogging) for a few weeks and haven’t closely followed the Woolwich incident. I’ve posted this video by Shaykh Abdalhaqq Bewley to demonstrate the general flavour of British Muslim sentiment from an ‘indigenous’ English Muslim revert.
I’ve only read one initial story and saw clips of the murderer with blood on his hands.
Condolences to the family of Lee Rigby. 😦 Thoughts and prayers are with them.
In terms of meting out justice this way – well, this is revenge – not justice. And two wrongs don’t make a right! And a murderer is a murderer. (Everyone knows that the term ‘terrorist’ is an ideological word used to justify ‘wars’ against ‘terrorism’.) The criminals should be trialled like criminals in the usual way, I guess.
I’m assuming from what little I’ve gleaned from mainstream media that this story is (more-or-less) true… And since all mainstream media reports on ‘terror’ tend to be spin with some other objective, I’ve recently not tended to rely on its presentation of facts as though it were the gospel truth. I will do my best, however, to give the benefit of the doubt and assume unlike the Boston Bombing incident there is no weird, messy involvement of secret services in this story (i.e. evidence of secret services talking with the suspects prior to the crime etc). Because if there is, this will render the whole news story problematic, right?
Finally, we should all be outraged at the murder of innocents wherever they are in the world – whether in the UK or in Palestine!
Goodbye 4th Amendment
Goodbye 2nd Amendment
Get ready to say goodbye to the 1st Amendment. Continue reading
CISPA has been very recently halted… But did you know?:
CONCLUSION 1: Keep an eye on what the government are trying to pass through to legislation when a ‘panic’ hits the media.
“We can relax now that CISPA is dead, right? Unfortunately, the answer is a little unclear at this point. An unnamed representative on Rockefeller’s committee says that “issues and key provisions” of CISPA will be divvied up and made into separate bills. In other words, CISPA will be broken up into smaller, separate bills in the Senate.” (Source)
CONCLUSION 2: The damaging elements of CISPA can still make it through into legislation. But doing it this way is clever by being harder to spot and track…
