They Don't Do Contradiction Do They?

Prior to the horrific murder of the Jordanian Air Force pilot Lt Kasasbeh by IS, about a month before they released the video of his immolation in a cage (and their barbarity plumbed new depths), his father had issued a message “I call on the brothers from ISIL to consider him their son and their colleague in prayer to treat him well and consider him as their son and a guest on this, the anniversary of the birth of the Prophet Mohammad.”

Their response was about we expect from the animals ..... his murder, duly filmed and put out on to the web, for its sicko fans in the West .... these self proclaimed 'warriors' covered their faces, against being identified. 

Lt Kasasbeh - Had Been Beaten and Humiliated Before His Death

But following it..... Jordan vowed an "earth-shattering" response ... which was the hanging of two old terrorists, who had been on death row for so many years that they had not been in IS.They have resumed bombings in Syria (But the UAE has ceased).

Now, Safi al-Kasasbeh, the pilot's father, has called for the Jordanian government to do "more than just executing prisoners". The blood of his son was the blood of the nation, he said, "and the blood of the nation must be avenged. I call for [ISIL] to be eliminated completely." .... which is a little bit different from his message of a week or so ago, when he wanted them to be his 'brothers from ISIL'.

Strangely, a leading authority on Sunni Islam also condemned the killing, but not the killing itself, just the method of it, by saying the burning to death of Lt Kasasbeh violated Islam's prohibition on the mutilation of bodies .... so no problem with killing him, just the burning that was wrong then?

Oh and to top it off, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of al-Azhar University in Egypt, also called for the "killing, crucifixion of IS terrorists" .... so atrocity for atrocity, and barbarism for barbarism, in yet another orgy of violent celebration by the death cult. This is know as "Qisas" in Sharia Law, which, in its broadest terms, is the law of equal retaliation which is the Islamic equivalent of "Lex Talionis", or the doctrine of an eye for an eye.

There is an inherent contradiction inside this religion, between its constant use of violence to settle every question, and its constant proclamation that its a religion of peace and that it worships a most merciful god .... but if the followers of Islam haven't spotted it after 1400 years, then  I guess they never will.

And to those apologists within and without Islam, who say its not the religion, but just a few bad apples   ..... Islamic State (ISIL), Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, Mujahideen, Hamas, Hizballah, Laskar-e-toiba, Al-Shabab, Haqqani network, al-nusrah, Taliban, Ansar Allah, Ansar al-Sharia ....... the list just goes on and on, with more heads sprouting up than the legendary hydra.

But that is too many bad apples from just one orchard, to dismiss as anachronisms, and means there's something fundamentally wrong with the orchard they grow in.
