Where, O Death is Your Sting?
The death of Abu Musab Al Zarqawi has once again reminded the west of the evil of Islamo-fascism. Responding to the death of Zarqawi, Al Qaeda in Iraq has said,
"We want to give you the joyous news of the martyrdom of the mujahed sheik Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The death of our leaders is life for us. It will only increase our persistence in continuing holy war so that the word of God will be supreme."
This is evil, pure and simple. These terrorists and their supporters prize death rather than fear it, or lament it. There is no sting in death for the Islamic terrorist, rather there is perverse adulation. The silver lining in this for the west, is that a culture of death will eventually kill itself. Where death reigns, no life will be sustained. The culture of Islamo-fascism is an inherently self-defeating one. The west will have its victory--but at what cost to us?
