The Holy War

The War on Terror is a Holy War. GWB will never say this, but anyone who thinks differently is just kidding themselves:
"Young mujahideen (holy warriors) from the al-Qaeda Group of Jihad in the Land of Two Rivers assassinated a tyrant from among the Americans' agents, the governor of Baghdad, may God liberate it (Baghdad) and the whole of Iraq," said the statement, whose authenticity could not be confirmed.

"We tell every traitor and everyone who is loyal to the Jews and the Christians that this will be your fate," it said.(emphasis mine)
For a long time, I've had my own theories on God's intention in the middle east. I believe that Mohammed was the false prophet and God is cleaning house. Iraq is home to what is considered the 'cradle of civilization'...where it all began. What if now, Iraq could become the 'cradle of christianity' for the region. Freedom of Religion is God's purpose, along with bringing justice, IMHO.

And to further make the point that there is no "Religion of Peace", check this quote out:
Khomeini accordingly delivered notorious rebuke to the Islam-is-a-religion-of-peace crowd: “Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]….  Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Qur’anic] psalms and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”(emphasis mine)
Case Closed.
