Osama Bin Laden speaks out and the world listens...as he rants about cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad. He even accused to Pope of being part of a new crusade to mock the Prophet. The world waits for him to speak again and all he can come up with is a complaint about cartoons? Almost laughable...almost.
The problem is that there is a segment of our world that actually gets worked up about this complaint. There are people is this world ready to kill and be killed because someone attempted to draw a picture of the Prophet. There are people in this world who are determined that the rest of us believe what they believe or else we should die. There is no middle ground. There is no negotiation. Bin Laden and his believers cannot be reasoned with. There is only one way to live life and that is through Islam.
The world needs to wake up and realize that there is no way we can continue down this path. You cannot reason with a group of people who so strongly believe they are the only chosen people and the rest of us are but merely in the way. For Bin Laden and those who follow his message, the world must either convert to their way of life or perish for their sins. There is no middle ground and there is no negotiation.
Bin Laden's rant about cartoons and conspiracy could be funny. But not when so many people are willing to put their lives on the line for such beliefs. Therefore, Bin Laden's comments aren't funny but merely another reminder of how out of touch these people are. Bin Laden's comments are just plain scary.
