You are distorting the facts. The fact is Afgan people and government have a choice. If they turn a Allahless (godless) terorist who declared war against civilians nobody will be hurt. If they choose to support this evil group of terorists they will become evil too. As you knew very well, Quran has a lot of stories that Allah punishes the whole population of a town or nation if they had deserved. While doing that innocent people liviong in the same place are killed too.. Please do not distort Allah`s words and the facts of Islam in order to provide support for the evil. Best Regards Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

Does Allah Destroy Innocent Also?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His  forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol,  no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Islam does not allow,  under any circumstances,  to kill innocent people.   Even in an actual state of war,  muslims are prohibited to kill civilians,  the elderly,  woman, children, etc.   Thus the act that happened in New York on Sep-11 was illegal in Islam, any which way one looks at it.   Whoever committed those heinous crimes must be brought to justice.

Another law in Islam is that one will be considered innocent until proven guilty!   The US Governement has named a suspect,  but to date have not provided the world community with evidence and proof.   Thus the suspect (and especially his religion) must be held innocent until proven guilty.   Just because the news media have screamed at the top of their lungs that the suspect is indeed the guilty;  everyone who is on the side of Right and Justice,  must wait till the evidence is provided and the suspect is indeed proven guilty!

Your Comment:  The fact is Afgan people and government have a choice. If they turn a Allahless (godless) terorist who declared war against civilians nobody will be hurt. 

Indeed,  the Afghan government has already declared that if the US government provides the world community with concrete evidence linking Ossama bin Ladin to the crimes committed in New York,  they are willing to hand him over.    And if anyone values and respects Right,  Justice, Independence and the Sovereignty of another nation,   this offer would seem to be a reasonable one.

The choice I think Afghanistan and its proud people are not willing to accept is the bullying and discrimination of the US governement;  whereby they are deploying the most powerful army in the world to annhilate (if need be) an entire country for the sake of one person!   

There are literally hundreds of conspiracy theories rotating in the news and on the internet claiming that there ‘could’ be some other agencies or people involved in this heinous crime against civilians in New York.   Not all of them have credence,  but then,  not all of them seem too far fetched too!    

For a moment,  in earnest search for the truth;  lets leave all the conspiracy theories aside and look at some facts:

  1. President Bush has declared he wants Ossama bin Ladin ‘dead or alive’!   Since when did the US government,  which unilaterally claims to be the standard-bearer of justice,  want its ‘suspects’ dead?

2.      Since World War II, the United States actually dropped bombs on 23 countries. These include: China 1945-46, Korea 1950-53, China 1950-53, Guatemala 1954,  Indonesia 1958, Cuba 1959-60, Guatemala 1960, Congo 1964, Peru 1965, Laos 1964-73, Vietnam 1961-73, Cambodia 1969-70, Guatemala 1967-69, Grenada 1983, Lebanon 1984, Libya 1986, El Salvador 1980s, Nicaragua 1980s, Panama 1989, Iraq 1991-1999, Sudan 1998, Afghanistan 1998, and Yugoslavia 1999.   If we indeed need to address the question of terrorism;  I think we need not look any further than the United States;  who practice, without a doubt,  the most blatant form of ‘state terrorism’ in the world!!!

 3.      Palestine.   Almost every heavy armoury used by the Israelis is ‘made in USA’!   Almost every bullet that pierces the body of every Palestinian civilian is ‘made in USA’!   Israel openly refutes and refuses to accept the UN Resolution to withdraw from the ‘occupied territories’!   At every stage,  and at every turn,  the US supports and helps Israel,  which has killed tens of thousands of Palestinians over the years!  

 

4.      WASHINGTON, Sept 20 - Congressional Representative John Cooksey (R-LA) encouraged already heated feelings of discrimination and hatred when he asserted that "someone who comes in that`s got a diaper on his head and a fan belt wrapped around that diaper on his head, that guy needs to be pulled over," on Louisiana radio stations Monday!   This person is an elected leader in the US government!!!    Ossama bin Ladin has issued various decrees to fight against US interests,  but it must be remembered that he has done this as an individual.   He is neither an Afghani,  nor does he represent the Afghani government.

 

5.      President Bush has declared this war a ‘crusade’!    The crusades were historically the battles fought by the Christians against the Muslims;  and this one seems no different!

Now take a look at the investigations and news in the aftermath of the attacks:

 

a.      Within minutes of the last plane crash in Pennsylvania,  the news media announces that this is the work of ‘Islamic terrorists’!   Very similar to the claims they made in the aftermath of the Oklahoma bombing!

b.      In almost every single crash since the invention of the aircrafts ‘black box’,   these devices have been found and vital information leading to the final moments before the crash were deciphered by the authorities!   Here,  mysteriously,  all the black-boxes and voice recorded are damaged and no information is forth-coming!

c.      There is absolutely no doubt that this heinous terrorist act seems to be the work of professionals… well planned for a number of years and finely executed!    But the terrorists who planned this attack to near-perfection,  in their stupidity leave behind a rented car,  with a copy of the Holy Quran,  the name of Ossama bin Ladin,  and to top it all;  an ‘arabic’ flight manual!!!!

d.      The FBI released 19 names of supposed terrorists… in reality they were the names of all the muslims who were on-board these ill-fated flights!   And just because they were muslims,  they became automatic suspects!!!!!    Now it has been proven that seven of these nineteen people are well and alive in Saudi Arabia.   The local Arabic news carried their press-conference from the US Embassy from Riyadh,   but there was absolutely no mention of this on the international news like CNN,  BBC, etc.!!  

e.      The FBI revealed that they have found a passport of one of the terrorists in the debris surrounding the World Trade Center!    The rescuers are hard-bent to find the ashes of the people blown away,  but the FBI were able to retrieve a PASSPORT!!!!

 

Whatever the reason and whatever the motive of the terrorists were,  each and every right minded person must condemn what happened on Sep-11 in the USA.    But before we reach to a conclusion that one person or one religion was behind these acts,  we must have the evidence to prove such a claim!    Neither has the US themselves confirmed that they have proof,  nor have they provided this proof to the world community.   They themselves admit to this day that they have a suspect;  and as with all suspects,  they must be held innocent until proven guilty in a court of Law!!!!    And even if Ossama bin Ladin is proven to be directly involved in this heinous crime,   nothing would justify the US to go and bomb a sovereign country out of existence!    If they indeed go ahead with their threats,  they would be by far the biggest terrorists in the world.    And all that would do is create more terror and more destruction and more loss of innocent lives!     If the US’s urge for revenge is accepted,   then so should be the urge of the people who will try and take revenge from the US for their attack on their sovereign country!     And the spiral will have climbed another ladder in this web of hatred!!!!

Your Comment:  As you knew very well, Quran has a lot of stories that Allah punishes the whole population of a town or nation if they had deserved. While doing that innocent people liviong in the same place are killed too..

Please do not use the Holy Quran to justify the form of ‘justice’ practiced by the US!!!!!!    When Allah destroyed the people of Prophet Noah (a.s.),  He delivered the people who believed!   When Allah destroyed the people of Aad,  Allah delievered the believers with Prophet Hud (a.s.)!!    When Allah destroyed the people of Prophet Lot (a.s.),  He delivered the believers with Prophet Lot (a.s.)!!   When Allah destroyed the people of Thamud,  He delivered the believers with Prophet Saleh (a.s.)!!!    When Allah destroyed the people of Madyan,  He delivered Prophet Shuaib (a.s.) and those who believed in him!!!   When Allah destroyed the people of Pharoah,  He delivered the believers with Prophet Moses (a.s.)!!

My beloved brother,  our Lord is a Just and Merciful Lord.

Your Brother and well wisher in Islam,
