I was at a meeting, when the announcement was made that a nun had been murdered in retaliation over the Pope’s speech. The first thought that popped into my head was: “We will have to kill them all”. It was felt with such force that I wanted to get up and scream it to all of those in the room. It was very humbling to come face to face with the growing rage about the situation over the Moslems in the world. The thought was not rational, it was emotional and I felt enduring. Such is the war we fight with ourselves, or perhaps it is better to say, one I fight with myself. The primitive instinct to identify with my ‘tribe’ and to strike out at its enemies; a survival instinct that worked in the past, but I feel it has backed mankind into a corner of late.
The continuing terror attacks will backfire on the terrorists in the end. Rage and anger will swallow it up, and I fear in the end all Muslims will pay a heavy price for what is going on today. It is not that difficult to be swallowed into the group mind, the primitive mind, the mind that only thinks about survival of self, family, tribe and nation.
I feel it growing; I pray and ask for light what more can I do? The irrational is like a shark that swims deep in my unconscious slowly growing, feed by fear, and anger, seeking an outlet, a savage one. I suppose this leads me to understand the rage of the terrorist, if not sympathy in anyway for what they are doing.
I feel for the many Moslems who will have to pay for this evil that is spreading over the entire world. If the terrorists are able to get a big hit against the United States what do they think we will do? It will be an act of war, and those countries that harbor these terrorists will pay a very heavy price. Governments will protect the interest of their people, and if we are attacked their will be a great deal of destruction rained down on those countries who support the terror groups.
Perhaps the world is going mad.
