Dawahfilms was always a pretty nasty piece of work, but his latest comments show a lust for violence that is really very unsettling.
The very tone of this paragraph is the presumption that Afghanistan would be better off without ‘the enemy’. Well of course, but who is the enemy, ‘the West’ or Islam? Well what about the Afghan ‘brothers and sisters’ that remember life under the Islamic rule, under the Taliban and want nothing to do with it?
Those who see Afghanistan at a cross roads where it can choose to join the rest of the civilized world, or can revert to Taliban style Islamic law. After all, Afghanistan has already seen Islamic law for 5 years, and it transformed the country for the better, right?.. oh wait..
The ’16’ dawahfilms refers to are from when a US service member went loco and went on a shooting spree killing many women and children (hardly a ringing endorsement!). Not really a government sanctioned action to base a counter-policy on. Similarly the idea that ‘the enemy’ (America?) who is curiously the very same government that Dawahfilms CHOOSES to remain a citizen of, is actually targeting families to ‘make them pay’ is a willfully puerile interpretation of the US foreign policy. IF the US had as its goal to kill families, I think they have the military capability to enact such a policy with greater efficiency than to merely kill 16 people. To even suggest that ‘making their families pay’ is the intent of the US suggests a willfully malicious mis-interpretation of facts. Further to do it as a motivation to ‘make your enemies pay’ with the stated goal that ‘Peace will only be reached when they fear for their lives’ suggests a lust for a violent solution that seems to go hand in hand with taking Islam seriously as a religion.
Look this is the thing, Gandhi, the British trained lawyer (University College London), knew that the British were ultimately an enlightened people of law, and that therefore he could achieve all of his goals (getting the Imperial power out of India) without violence. Now let me ask you a similar question. How do you think Gandhi would have approached the situation if instead of getting a modern first world education he had attended an Islamic school?
“Peace will only be reached when they fear for their lives” (?)
