I came across this rather catchy tune When we die as martyrs – Palestinian Children on the reference frame. Well worth viewing and reflecting on. It’s got a catchy tune, rousing lyrics and a spiritual theme. Not exactly new age, or perhaps it is? Time will tell.
It reminded me of the documentary Obsession – Radical Islam’s War Against the West. This documentary reveals effective propaganda. It either accurately portrays the indoctrination of a section of the Islamic world or is effective propaganda that this is occurring.
The opening statement that “most Muslims are peaceful and do not support terror” is worth keeping in mind. I’ve had the pleasure of spending time in one of the more tolerant Muslim nations and can vouch for the accuracy of the statement. But I guess most Germans were not genocidal warmongers in the 1930’s and early 1940’s and that did not stop National Socialism harming millions. Ditto for Russians under International Socialism.
Ideologies can facilitates people acting in barbaric ways. It behoves us to be on our guard against the rise of such ideologies. In the interests of trying to perceive reality I suggest people view the clips and make up their own mind. It is better to seek reality than to hide in comfortable delusions. Reality has a habit of shattering delusions, be they in matters geopolitical or economic, as the EU is discovering.
