Hold of terrorism is weakening

The Muslim community has been subjected to a combination of debilitating mind games for most of the last century. Still struggling from the after-effects of colonialism, they have been oppressed by dictators installed by the retreating colonialists, and disempowered by their sweet talk of nationalism. Conspiracy theories have added to their impotency, leading to a mindless, hopeless and mutually destructive tendency to violent revenge. With their scholars imprisoned and replaced by Western educated bureaucrats, their religious schools filled with the least capable of learners and funded by bedouin theology, the ignorant have become leaders, contributing through unaccountable underground networks and the harsh yelling of Friday sermons to a combined sense of emasculation. Hence the easy recourse to terrorism.
But the hold of terrorism is weakening.
There has been no benefit to any group from the mindless terror of suicide bombs, market bombs and the eradication of alternative views. Over the past few decades millions of families - mostly Muslim - have suffered devastating injury, crippling fear, and the irreparable loss of loved ones.
Poor communities are left in shambles from the damage of wanton destruction. For no benefit.
Today I received an email from a peace activist in Pakistan. I would like to reprint it here. I pray that his words are spread, recounted, celebrated and begin a new movement across the Muslim world. To bring the purveyors of terrorism to account and to stop their activities once and for all.
An Open Letter to the Taliban
Do you know what degree of shame, abomination, misery and wretchedness is being heaped on the innocent and peace-following Muslims all over the world because of this so-called and self styled Jihad of yours?

Do you know how many innocent, unsullied people are being daily butchered as result of this professed Jihad of yours? How many children are being orphaned and women being widowed precisely for the same reason.

And do you know, killing one faultless human being is like killing the entire humanity. You must definitely be knowing that you will surely be held accountable for this all bloodshed. Will you, then, be able to face your God? I challenge, no!

Then, why have you become agents of some hidden hands. Why are you taking the responsibility of the murder of entire humanity to yourselves on their behest. Why are you dragging the Muslims down? Why are you demeaning Islam by presenting it as a terrorist religion? Acting like this, which religion are you rendering a great service to? Are you raising the standard of Islam high or you (if you reflect on it) are causing the heads of the followers of the path of the righteous to bow down with shame in-front of the entire humanity.

Today most of the Muslims believe that you are not true Muslims but planted by the enemies to destroy the image of Islam.

For God's sake, take recourse to sense, and announce a CEASEFIRE at-once so the inhabitants of the world may be introduced to that divine aspect of the Muslims at whose hands no soul suffer, whose words and actions bear no tinge of dichotomy, whose speech when uttered, conveys to others the message of love and protection, whose thoughts, when thought, are devoted to the well being of others. Herein lies the true success, and herein lies the victory of the true religion of Allah.

alsalamu alikoum
Peace upon you
Sister Mrs. Silma

I am very happy because I found your blog

I agree completely
Islam is a religion of peace
And propagate all the others on terrorism is not unfounded
Islam does not call for violence
Or to hate

Everything that happens from killing and terrorism is the result of what the West is doing us
As a result of dictators
West, who has their status in government

But the Arab spring decided to change the equation

I'm glad I belong to Egypt
Mobarak, which removed the control after 30 years of rule

And thank you very much for your interest to Muslims around the world
Greetings to you ,,

Peace, mercy and blessings of God,
