An Open Letter to tell ISIS what I think of them

To all terrorist, domestic and foreign, no matter what your name or where you are born, you are killing and claim it is in the name of Allah, and you think you will meet Him your God.

You will meet your God, but it is not Allah, that you will meet. It is not seven virgins that you will greet. For if they are there, they like you will be feeding the fires of hell, Jahannam as you bow to your god Iblīs (Iblīs, is the Arabic translation for Devil.)

The Poem

The Band of Lost Souls

© by Shyron Shenko

With your band of lost souls

What is your purpose? What are your goals?

What do you gain by inflicting so much pain?

Is it beyond your comprehension, that Allah would not want these things

You have others strap on a bomb for you

As you teach them what to do

Looking out with lifeless hollow eyes

They don’t live long enough to hear the cries

Sent to their death because of your lies

What the suicide bombers are to you

That is what you are to the Iblīs/devil’s crew

As your body goes up in smoke

Scroll to Continue

The devil/Iblīs has played on you, a cruel joke

Do you really think from Jahannam you will escape?

After all the recruited crushed spirits you laid at his gate

When the devil/Iblīs dishes up your fate

That is when you will know how you rate

When handing over your own soul to the Iblīs caliphate

Iblīs cannot deliver

The honor and glory that you were told

When you joined his band of lost souls

You have invoked compassion for your victims

And you’ve not turned our hearts stone cold

As you fight the flames of hell

And try to rest your weary head

I hope you will remember the lost souls you’ve led

And all the blood that you have shed

As you try to rest in your fiery bed

Osama bin Laden

According to former CIA analyst Michael Scheuer, who led the CIA's hunt for Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader was motivated by a belief that U.S. foreign policy has oppressed, killed, or otherwise harmed Muslims in the Middle East.

I say it is you ISIS/ISIL/Iblīs caliphate that has harmed Muslims everywhere.

Was Osama bin Laden a Muslim terrorist?

"They hate us for what we do, not who we are."

— Osama bin Laden

We need to shine brighter than they hate."

Most recently it seems some so-called militias that are mainly terrorist groups here in the U.S., have conspired to kidnap the governor of Michigan -- and I think the Virginia governor was also on their radar. Trump is of course encouraging them because if he can't put a criminal or a wannabe criminal in his cabinet, then at least he can encourage them.

So we now have homegrown terrorists with the current president's blessing. I think there should be an IQ test for people who want to run for president . . .

Posting this article to FB & AH.

Blessings, dear friend. Don't stop being cautious with this virus no matter how tiresome it is to keep up the precautions.

Seems like the terrorists causing the most trouble are home grown these days. Nazis, QAnon, White Supremacists, etc. Trump and Republicans are of course trying to blame liberals, but that's just their usual lies. Antifa, stands for antifascist, and they don't even have a structured organization. There's no membership, per se. It's violent Trump supporters who are causing most of the trouble, along with cops that shouldn't be cops. It's a pretty bad mess and I wonder if there will be anything left if Trump is reinstalled by Putin, as I expect him to be.

Hope you are staying safe as the coronavirus continues to rage and spread. Blessings . . .
