Al-Rawda: Where sorrow and vileness intersect
Cowardly and vile apologies for human beings, acting in the name of Allah, have yet again demonstrated a stinking underbelly of Islam.
On Friday some thirty perverted religious assassins of Islamic State planted bombs inside the peaceable mystic Sufi Muslim mosque of Al-Rawda in North Sinai. They surrounded the building with
machine gun-mounted jeeps, detonated the bomb and gunned down the survivors. Their wanton act of mass murder killed 305 innocents whose only fault was to attend Friday prayers.
Let there be no mistake - 305 innocent Mohammedans killed in the name of Islam! Some 305 souls who belonged to a mystical, peaceable branch of Islam:
Sufism is a way of life in which a deeper identity is discovered and lived. This deeper identity, beyond the already known personality, is in harmony with all that exists. This deeper identity, or essential self,
has abilities of awareness, action, creativity and love that are far beyond the abilities of the superficial personality. [See:https://sufism.org/sufism]
Their mosque of Al-Rawda is located some 40km west of el-Arish, the provincial capital of North Sinai.
It so happens that
there also exists in north Queensland a small soldier settlement named el-Arish after the Australian experience in Sinai during the First War. I shall never drive through it again without thinking of the horror inflicted upon decent religious people by the
unspeakable barbarians of evil.
Surely now is the time for all Mohammedans, their leaders, and their Western apologists, to strike out, without
evasion, equivocation or mental reservation, those barbarous tenets of their religion that quite clearly encourages and justifies such wonton evil.
I challenge them to do so!
