They Play It Out

Already one day after the brutal murder of Benazir Bhutto
they connect "relgious extremism" with "terrorism" and say this "is the evil of this millenium": "The death Bhutto and the price we pay all" is the title of an article from today by "Las Palmas de Gran Canaria" newpaper director Francisco Suárez Álamo, but I fear in truth the believers will be the ones who will have to pay the price. (By the way: "Alamo" means "Popular"). He writes (highlightened by me):

"Back and the unmistakable trail of terrorism linked to religious fundamentalism, a dangerous combination that brings into play a weapon of mass destruction certainly (of course, much more fearsome than Saddam falsely put against him): the terrorist who not only has no fear to death, but found it as a reward for their alleged religious fidelity. How can one intimidate those who do not appreciate or even remove a vital piece in its schedule? That is the question that takes half a world becoming for many years and we have not yet given with the answer: Pakistan some tried by force and has not served as nothing, the United States tried to torture at Guantanamo and neither, and Spain opens the Alliance of Civilizations and we still have to be asking for forgiveness because a few in Granada and Cordoba in Spain are not part of the caliphate and try now to recover (farmer: regarding Granada, see my last article)"...
"The death of Bhutto is not an issue unique to those who live there: Unfortunately, Pakistan is one of those states whose authoritarian government is an ally of the West in this war against religious fundamentalism.
It is the high- rather costly- price to be paid for fairly quiet sleep at night. Now, with Bhutto out of the picture, the probability of return on the path to democracy sank considerably.Pakistanis are therefore among those who lost the most in the first instance but the rest of us will see how this piece of the board of great value which is the Asian country plunges into irrational violence and indiscriminate brotherhood of fundamentalism.(...)"

"It is, in any case, another work of terrorism with capital letters, that this crack coexistence, sowing hatred, passions stirred casualties and collect storms.

It is the evil of this millennium and it was now past and ending the year comes to a terrorist reminding for us that beyond our happy world, our Santa Claus and our Magi, there is another reality, a harsh reality that brings us colors to Humanity."

Jesus said "Thy word is truth" and "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free". Mr. Alamo says that the problem is religious fundamentalism, but what does he mean by that? It seems to me that he is engaging in nothing more than propaganda for the masses, including those who are all to willing to allow others to do their thinking for them. But the people are defenseless without the truth, the same truth that Jesus said is his word. Mr. Alamo is wrong. The problem is not religious fundamentalism per se, it goes much deeper than that. The problem is false religion, and this is the thesis that the Alliance of Civilizations refuses to accept. As Scripture says, "And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit." (Matt. 15:14)

Eric, I agree with Farmer; if I might add: Nowhere in the New Testament is there anything like fundamentalism embracing: "believe or die-ism." The Old Testament had a geographical mandate from God that had borders; borders that neither Iran, China, Russia or the US, not to mention the rest of the world ever abided by. You never saw Israel send an invading army to Greece.
