Osama Died - But those Who Benefit from the War on Terror Live On
much has been spent? How many well-guarded and high-walled fortresses have been
built? How many streets have been closed? How many vehicles have been searched?
All in the name of a battle against terrorism that has become such an influence
in every aspect of our lives, that we see and don't see, and that we won't be
able to dismiss even after the battle is done."
U.S. President Obama
announced yesterday that Osama bin Laden had been killed in a raid on a residential compound
outside the Pakistani capital of Islamabad.
But while Osama may have
died, al-Qaeda is not dead, because it's an organization with a spirit of
surprise and vengeance that has attracted young people around the world.
The problem of al-Qaeda is
that it provides no constructive substitute for a culture of suicide bombing,
destruction and murder - and that its members seek nothing more than what their
deluded course of action will inevitably bring.
A Muslim needs to be strong
and intelligent and have the courage of his convictions - but not by setting
off bombs and creating destruction among innocent victims who have nothing to
do with what al-Qaeda is fighting for.

The biggest problem with
al-Qaeda is that by opening the toxic door of terrorism, it also invited the
corruption, imprisonment, detention, wiretapping and rendition committed by
many regimes and governments, which had no trouble doing whatever they liked as
long as they had al-Qaeda or terrorism to blame it on.
Indeed, some politicians,
writers and researchers sought to improve their profiles by depicting
themselves as anti-terror and anti-al-Qaeda warriors, when in fact they really had
nothing to do with either stopping the terrorists or bringing them to justice.
How much has been spent? How
many well-guarded and high-walled fortresses have been built? How many streets
have been closed? How many vehicles have been searched? All in the name of a
battle against terrorism which has become such an influence on every aspect of
our lives that we see and don't see, hear and don't hear, understand and don't
understand, and that we won't be able to dismiss even after the battle is done.
