"We - with God's help - call on every Muslim who believes in God and wishes to be rewarded to comply with God's order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it."
Osama Bin Laden, 2/22/98, translated by the Federation of American Scientists.
How do you criticize something that is so obviously wrong??
I wonder, how many Muslims don't believe in God?
Who intends to do the rewarding, and what are the rewards?
God ordered the killing of Americans?? When? Where? And he ordered the plunder of Americans money?? When? Where? I want evidence!!
How do you know the translation is correct - the source is highly biased, and more than a little suspect. Who or what is the Federation of American Scientists - that sounds like a made up name that is too vague to be attached to any real organisation and it includes Federation which resounds with status and the word scientist that gives it an air of credibility.
Before discussing the emotional content of the words you should first verify that they are genuine. If this unlikely organisation is genuine, then you should check their bias and then check to see if they have any other pronouncements that are quoted anywhere that recognises such bodies.
Er - lets not huh ! ? You don't pick up unidentified garbage from the street and eat it because it makes you ill. It is a good idea to do the same with unidentified information or you are filling your head with garbage.
This kind of garbage is especially poisonous.
If it is manufactured by some hate group then all you are doing is spreading the hate that the immoral, unethical and downright sleazy values of that group - and you inherit those values in the spreading.
Or is that what you know you are doing anyway ?
American mass media is completely monopolized by one ethnicity, and it's not one that fits the traditional definition of "white" either, except by looks.
So basically, anything and every single last thing that comes from mass media in America or the U.K. is subject to the very definite whims of an agenda by a certain ethnic group; and for that reason, it's garbage before it hits the airwaves, or the press.
Sorry! this is from my Philosophy class assignment - the forum is Education and Science - Philosophy.
I didn't want to mention what it was for because there's more to the assignment and I don't want the answers given to me - I wanted to see what everyone would do with it so I could learn.
I am becoming increasingly interested in this course you are on. What college is running it can I ask ?
I am gonna go out on a limb here and say that the Federation of American Scientists is legit lol, especially when weighing it against anything bin laden said or didn't say or allegedly said.
More than 70 Nobel science laureates have endorsed FAS as members of the Board of Sponsors.
Ditto to China Man's wise comment.
Also, anything associated with capitalism is based in personal greed, and complete and utter disregard for the welfare and lives of the losers in the game of life that capitalism suggests to us as a healthy reality.
So yeah, on a general level, the wealth of America is an abomination to humanity, when you look at it from the eyes of the slave laborers of the world.
"God ordered the killing of Americans?? When? Where? And he ordered the plunder of Americans money?? When? Where? I want evidence!!"
You've got to be kidding me! Why would any Cult leader or follower have to suddenly show proof of their sick,twisted, dangerous ideas? You show me proof of where shit eating Christians proved their reasons and justifications for rape, torture, and murder, all done "FOR GLORY OF GAWD"
Since when does Bin Laden speak for all Muslims? You might as well say all Christian's do what Pat Robertson wants them to do.
In an effort to address your questions: morally corrupt is extensive and varied in explanations pertaining to this behavior. Adolf Hitler was morally corrupt, Nero was morally corrupt, Minister Jim Jones was morally corrupt.
Whatever illusions that loomed in the minds of these people certainly took them to the point of irrational hatred of others.
It would take a psychologist and more time than we have here to explore the whys and what for to cause people to behave in such a way to be considered insane.
Since I'm not certain just what it is you're looking for

What can this generation, working together, each and all of us, do? We are not powerless individuals; acting together, we have the power to shape history, to turn globalization from a force that breeds insecurity to a force for justice on a global scale.

I don't understand how anyone could worship and love a genocidal God who would put his own creations in torturous Hell for eternity, just for not loving him or believing in him. I find the morals of such people suspect. They make excuses all the time, or try to twist it around and say this is a God...
