Talk about big news! Osama bin Laden is dead! It’s unbelievable really. Just imagine that for 3520 days (9 years, 7 months and 2o days) this man has been hiding and trying to avoid revenge for his many murders.
“Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.” 1 John 3:15 ESV
The current leader of Hamas went so far as to declare Osama to be a “holy warrior” which tells me everything I need to know about that man and the philosophy of his organization. And now I watch on tv as Hamas and Fatah are joining together. Hmm…
There are plenty of conspiracy theories floating around before and since the execution of Osama. One popular one is that Osama was hired by the CIA and they “made up” his death and he’s now somewhere in retirement, haha. Another is that Osama never even existed! They believe that he is somekind of jihadist Max Headroom, if you will. It’s amazing what people will believe. Like Hitler’s master of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, once said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” I’m not normally one to quote Nazis, but I figure I’d put it out there for those that admire Osama Bin Ladin as Hitler is almost always on their list of heroes. I figure it’s only a matter of time before Washington will have to release the pics they have of Osama after his execution. In the meantime, avoid viruses masqueraded as “Bin Laden execution vids” on facebook and other places! 😉
One can understand the skepticism about reports on his death considering the bizarre details coming out. It does sound quite sketchy that they would bury him at sea without an independent verification that it was indeed the world’s #1 terrorist. Another strange fact: they say he didn’t represent Islam, yet they give him “a proper Islamic burial”. (?!) See any contradiction there?! Whether he was killed years ago, or in fact on May 1st, 2011 (on Labour Day…after much labour!), one thing is sure: He has been declared guilty by God and is currently in hell, awaiting his future relocation to the lake of fire.
“Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment…” (Hebrews 9:27) Osama bin Ladin reaped what he sowed. “If anyone takes a human life, that person’s life will also be taken by human hands. For God made human beings in his own image.” (Genesis 9:6)
