9/11 Thoughts

15 years ago the demented forces of radical Islam against the world declared war
Sending hijackers on a one way delusional ticket to a Paradise in acts all civilized humans must deplore
Today the hijackers of Islam around the world continue to seek other bloody and fatal encores
More suicide bombings, mass shooting attacks of innocents have become the norm as we struggle for safety to restore
Lost in the grief over the almost 3000 innocents who on 9/11 died
61 nations also lost citizens when the hijacked planes went on their suicide ride
Radical Islam is a deadly, unforgiving  cancer that non Muslims and Muslims kills
Unless we together identify it, reform it and stamp it out an ever increasing butchers’ bill
Radical Islamists are the vicious, blood thirsty pirates of the 21st Century
And like the pirates of old we cannot allow them any physical or theological sanctuary
Islam like early Christianity plagued by Crusades and the Inquisition with its auto-da-fes
Needs a Reformation to lead it away from Sharia and its radical killing martyrdom ways
Where is the Muslim Luther who will this religion try to reform?
Who will install tolerance and respect for other faiths that radical Islam has shorn?
We cannot drone or kill our way out of this deadly existential threat
Ever reminded on 9/11 of the sacrifices of the first responders to whom we owe a great debt
This has to be also a war to reform the mullahs’ and imams’  hearts and minds
To from the mosques and madrassas command that to enter Paradise acts of terror must be shed and left behind
As long as young men and women are taught that terror is the only way to gain entrance to Paradise for their soul
Bombings, shootings, stabbings and all means of death and destruction on civilization will continue to take its toll
