• Lost Sight Of His Vision

    I never "lost sight" of ObL's "vision". I was quite aware
    that terrorism was simply a means to an end - a global
    Caliphate under Sharia Law, and posted accordingly. It
    will never come to pass, but the defeat of the Caliphate
    and Islam will come at a cost - a counterfeit of the
    Kingdom of God under the Antichrist & Noahide Law.


    We've Lost Sight Of His Vision

    Osama bin Laden's plan to use terrorism to trigger an Islamic
    reawakening that will challenge Western dominance of world events
    and assure the ascendancy of Sunni extremists is moving forward
    -- at an alarming rate.

    Hibernating securely somewhere along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border,
    bin Laden and his Egyptian sidekick, Ayman al-Zawahiri, must be
    deriving warmth from the fact that the Iraqi insurgency has taken on
    a decidedly Sunni extremist coloration; that Hamas has successfully
    exploited political opportunities in Palestine; that radicals within
    Europe's Muslim communities are gaining strength and destructive
    force; and that caricatures of the prophet Muhammad have led to
    violence even among Muslims not inclined toward terrorism.

    Terrorism, in bin Laden's strategy, is only a tactic, a means to
    achieve what he believes is a providentially ordained objective
    -- global domination by an Islamic caliphate. Yet dangerously, the
    United States is focusing on countering that tactic, missing the growth
    of the extremist Islamic forest as we flounder among the terrorist trees.
    Maybe it's because we have led ourselves to believe that the term "al
    Qaeda" means "Kill Americans." It doesn't. It means "foundation" or
    "base" in Arabic. Bin Laden chose the word intentionally and cleverly.
    He knew that his battle-hardened core of veterans from the Soviet-
    Afghan war of the 1980s would serve only as the foundational
    wellspring to irrigate fields of political, social and economic
    discontent among the Muslim masses.
