… And listening to one of the local “talk radio shows”, the discussion turned (on the show) turned to the current status of the Lockerbie bomber. You might remember this fellow, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi; he was the one who masterminded the December 1988 blowing up of Pan-Am flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland, resulting in the killing of all 243 passengers, 16 crew, and 11 people on the ground.
Last August, Scotland, in what they have spun as “an act of charity”, released Megrahi from prison. This was because it was thought Megarhi had “only three months to live”, due to a supposed (advanced) case of Prostate cancer. He had been serving a 27 year sentence. He was given a “humanitarian release”, and returned to Libya. Once there, he received a hero’s welcome, and soon found himself living in the lap of luxury.
There is reason to believe Megrahi does not, in fact, suffer from any sort of cancer what so ever. (refer to the link above for starters) That this was a ruse perpetrated by both Libya and the Scottish government. The fact is Megrahi is still alive and well, at least six months after his release, some three months longer than he was supposedly given to live.
A couple of recommendations from this old retired Sailor:
1. Islam (depending on the sect) either tacitly tolerates, or out and out condones lying. This is in either of two forms;
(Al-)Taqiyya – Saying something that isn’t true.
Kitman – Lying by omission. An example would be when Muslim apologists quote only a fragment of verse 5:32 (that if anyone kills “it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”) while neglecting to mention that the rest of the verse (and the next) mandate murder in undefined cases of “corruption” and “mischief.”
So it shouldn’t be too surprising when it is found out this piece of filth is cancer free.
2. Compassion can be shown in many ways. If we posit that cancer, especially in it’s later/final stages is by it’s very nature cruel and punishing to any who suffer from it, than by all means let’s show compassion. But I would humbly suggest in the case of Megarhi, giving him a hot lead injection right between the eyes, would have been a true act of compassion. It would have been a quick painless end to his suffering, and brought some closure to the families of all those who perished in the act of terrorism Megarhi perpetrated.
3. Though we will most likely have to wait until the current ass-clown circus of an administration is out of office (along with the confederacy of dunces in both houses of Congress), before there is any chance of doing so, what say we send a couple dozen high mega-tonnage bombs in the direction of Libya, and this fella’s villa. We would be showing compassion by the very act of letting Megarhi tell allah (small a intentional) personally how much it was an honor to kill so many infidels in his name.
But that’s just me thinking out loud. What do ya’ll think. Am I being to kind and compassionate here?
