another day in terror town

another day in terror town

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

How is another beheading just routine for these people?

"
It's just another day in terror town,
another journalist cruelly cut down.

How is this just another scene?
a new glossy photo spread in a magazine?

Don't give me your coward's cries of
righteous indignation
and stupid,
narrow-minded,
piggish
anti-American justification.
you didn't impact the leader,
or change a political nation.

You killed someone's
son,
husband,
brother,
friend,
in the name of religion
in the name of Allah,
in the name of something
even you don't understand.

It's another day in terror town,
press record and steal
an innocent life,
slashing your way to paradise
with a knife.
I think you are in for a surprise.
you won't meet the men you killed
when you die.

because they went up,
and you are going down.

Author's Note

Lyn Anderson
For the families of Daniel Pearl, James Foley, and Steven Sotloff. Terrorism,
even if the "cause" has roots in American politics, is never justified.
And don't bother using this poem as a way to spew anti-American hate, it will be
deleted.

Islam forbids any form of violence and any acts of evil. Those mad extremists are Non Muslim and they are serving the devil instead of Almighty Allah. I have studied the Koran, hadith and I know the truth from those extremists' falsehoods. Most of their victims as you all know have been innocent Muslims from other sects of Islam for they consider them heretics(they are heretics themselves). It saddens me for the media shows that few idiots and rabid dogs following their cult leader( I call them an evil cult of Wahhabism and Salafism) and not showing the anger and disgust of 1.6 billion Muslims who are shown on TV condemning those heinous acts. Islam is the most misunderstood religion and the most taken out of context or used by dictators and cult leaders for their goals.
Koran says:" Those who kill one person as if they have killed the whole humanity, and those who save one person as if they have saved the whole humanity." Many more other verses where it forbids aggression and suicide and killing innocent people.
Islam forbids any form of war except in the extreme self defense, removing oppression against any people and or fighting for true justice. If people study Islam ( without bias and hate or propaganda) they will find it was(is) revolutionary in all its aspects of human rights( women, slavery, voting, property and many more) The Koran is the only book that when it speaks to mankind, it refers to women and men and not just men. ( read for yourselves) Not being preachy but just to highlight some facts away from the media propaganda or the acts of some ignorant countries like Saudi Arabia...
A long subject but I'm adding my voice to the peace loving people( Islam means peace and surrender) but those idiots don't understand that.
Excellent poem...:).................

This is aptly disturbing, and extremely poignant KL, they strike fear in their own people, there's no justification nor any god to stand behind in atrocities such as these. This much disdain is inexplicable, makes my blood boil, the music is so apropos, an AK is too easy in my estimation. It's heaven and 72 virgins in paradise they desire, there is no hell fiery enough to make up for their sins against mankind.
