“Mere words cannot match the depths of your sorrow, nor can they heal your wounded hearts … These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change.”(1) Every parent can connect with what Barack Obama said about the murder of 20 children in Newtown, Connecticut. There can scarcely be a person on earth with access to the media who is untouched by the grief of the people of that town. Continue reading The reasons why muslim children continue to be killed
Early Sunday, US forces opened fire on Afghan civilians inside their homes in the district of Panjwaii in the southern province of Kandahar, killing at least 17 civilians and injuring several others. The Taliban militants said at least 50 people were killed in the massacre.
Earlier reports said the assassin was a lone US sergeant.
Villagers said the US forces later collected 11 of the bodies, including those of four girls under the age of six, and set them on fire.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai has condemned the bloodshed, calling it an inhuman, intentional, and unforgiveable act.
“When Afghan people are killed deliberately by US forces, this action is murder and terror and an unforgivable action,” Karzai said in a statement.
“The government and the people of Afghanistan demand an explanation from the United States government of this incident.”
Civilian casualties in Afghanistan have been a major source of tension between Kabul and Washington.
The outrages came in the wake of violent clashes in several Afghan provinces over recent desecration of the Holy Qur’an by the United States forces at the US-run Bagram Airbase in the province of Parwan in northeastern Afghanistan. The violence left over 30 people, including six American forces, dead and around 180 others injured.
The US-led invasion of Afghanistan was launched in 2001. The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but insecurity continues to rise across the country, despite the presence there of tens of thousands of US-led troops.
Khalid was sitting and begging for the food on the street with dust flows on all of his face. He was not born without legs rather he used to be a business man until 2001 . He had family of four boys and two girls who are already killed with his wife “Salma” who was a school teacher at that time.
I asked Khalid ” How did it happen ? he looked me with tired eyes and replied what do you mean? .
I asked How did you loose your family and how you loose your legs . He took a deep sigh and told me that It was a Tuesday night when we heard that US with his alies are planning to attack Afghanistan. We first realized that “Truth is on our side” as we did not engaged in any allegation they blamed on us.
In midnight we heared screaming, shouting and terrific bombing with glazing on sky every where and all of a sudden a Cruise missile hit on our home and i woke up like this.
I asked what happened to your family and childern , he stopped , glazed down and tears drop from his eyes .. I understood what it means..
Khalid is not the only one who has lost his family and life in last decade , rather about 10 million innocent childern , adults, old and infants been massacred since 2001 and it is continiue as I write this text.
On 2nd of May 2011 , when i heared the news that Osama bin laden has been killed i asked myself, Is it now that the “US License of Massacre” has been expired ? or they will renew it with on other name.
May be I am right in my judgement as next day news media were boosting in creating fear and making stage that muslims will now take revenge of Osama’s death and West has to prepare for something similar.
Beside the fact that 9/11 was not any Muslim’s job rather was an inside drama , but now they are making people mind that … be prepare ” They are coming “….
As a citizen of Humanity we must open our eyes and free ourselves from this type of manufacturing consent tactics ..
I hope that People are now more well informed than in 2001 but we will see how we performed our duties as human beings and stop US in repeating the history and even confirm that “US License to Massacre” is really been expired …
