Osama, Criminal or Prophet?
The question Americans can’t come to grips with is why Osama bin Laden had followers, who was he? Was he viewed as a muslim prophet of some kind? Why would anyone attach themselves to or become involved with a mass murder?
Where Osama bin Laden Started
Osama bin Laden started out with a silver spoon in his mouth. Osama was born into a wealthy family, he was a trust fund kid. As a trust fund kid, he never held a job, it was all education for him, he never got his hands dirty.
His family built Saudi Arabia; his father was a building contractor for the Saudi Arabia royal family. He attended the finest schools and was highly educated. Not a bad start.
He had 5 wives, a few of whom were from distinguished families and also highly educated. One wive was a university lecturer, another a child psychologist. Not bad.
What Led To His Down Fall?
Perhaps the fact that Christians and Muslims do not see eye-t0-eye led to Osama’s down fall.
Judeo Christian’s Believe
Christians believe in choice. The Christian mission is to live by the rules set forth by God. If you want to become a Christian, great, if not, that’s okay too. Christians are not out to force conversions.
Muslims believe in forced conversion. Their mission is to convert all people to the Islam religion. That is quite the opposite of the Christian mission.
Osama bin Laden Believed
Osama had it all, the education, the wealth, the family. Following the violence path is what eventually led to his down fall. He wanted glory and power. He wasn’t out to save or help his fellow Muslims, he wanted something more grand. Osama was a self-obsessed diva, a criminal, a terrorist and a mass murder. Americans cannot comprehend why a monster like that would have a following. But then again gang members who are also thugs have followings.
The Belief of The Osama Follower
We can only assume that Osama’s followers thought he would bring good changes to their lives. Maybe they thought that because of his family wealth, he would help improve their lot in live.
What Did Osama Do?
Osama did not improve anyone’s live. He did not improve the safety of the Muslim communities, or the environment or working conditions of his people. He did not increase jobs or the welfare of future generations in his country. All he did was make the rest of the world misunderstand Islam and the Muslim communities. But what else can you expect from a self-absorbed terrorist?
