senseless acts

(photo taken from

I am sad, sorry and boggled to hear the eight terror suspects are medical doctors and wife, a lab tech, in the recent attempted failed car bombings in Central London and Glasgow airport.

They are all in their 20s. Did these young people fall prey in the hands of the jihad group/s? Once in the organization, these young could not get out even when they found the group was not what it professed to be. Either they be killed by the group or be the terror act which represented allegiance.

I cannot imagine intelligent young people would carry out such terror in their right minds unless they’re brain-washed or forced to and without choice.

If these young people wanted to redeem their societies, surely they could use their professions or, vocation as medical doctors. They would have greater impact upon the society.

By committing such terror acts, they not only killed themselves but grieved their loved ones and carried along with them the innocent civilians which are ignoble acts!

Why the senseless acts? Surely these are not sacrifices to their gods.

I asked myself constantly what causes fights and quarrels. I kept returning to these words in the bible, James 4:1-3:
"Don't they come from your desires that battle within you?
You want something but don't get it.
You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want.
You quarrel and fight.
You do not have, because you do not ask God.
When you ask, you do not receive,
because you asked with wrong motives,
that you may spend what you get on your pleasures."
If religion is pure, righteous and good, surely these suicide bombers killing indiscriminately are not what their Allah wants, and not what one believes!
Whoever these leaders are, they are just evil!

I used to think these people were evil, too. Now I think it's a matter of opinion, a matter of culture, a matter of values, a matter of religion. I understand one side of the coin. That would be our side. On the otherside, I also understand that Europeans and Americans are viewed as evil - as being the devil - and in order to save the world, "they" need to be wiped out. What will stop this madness? Time will tell.

bob: While I understand your view, especially after the NY 911.

However my view is when a group creates suicide bombers to destroy the innocent is indeed devious.
