The reputed death of Osama bin Laden has gripped America and the world. An interesting cast of characters, imbeciles, and governments have united in praising President Obama, seemingly reversing his dismal popularity ratings among domestic problems at home like high unemployment, public debt, inflation, and multicultural dystopia once had people wondering if the United States is such a great idea after all.
A day after Osama’s death has brought a host of reactions from people in the tribe and broader autonomous nationalist community. Some confessed joy at Osama’s death, others wondered if this is the end of the War on Terror. Still others professed hope that “now we can bring our troops home from overseas.”
Cue in the reverie of many within the white nationalist movement along with some of the most powerful figures in the world, past and present: Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, Rudy Giuliani, George Bush, every neocon and Zionist imaginable, and various leaders within the European Union. It is interesting that Statists and white nationalists both hate Osama bin Laden.
It is my opinion that anything that certain individuals or groups consider a good thing (Tony Blair, Hilary Clinton, George Bush, NATO, etc) is not favorable to us.
If we can step back a minute and analyze what Osama bin Laden represents to these people, he was the most successful (and alternatively, useful, boogeyman) resister to Russian, American, and European influence in the Middle East and Afghanistan for decades. No other individual can come as close to resembling a James Bond style supervillian that evaded the most powerful and comprehensive government manhunt in world history for nearly ten years. After all of us are long gone and forgotten, Osama bin Laden’s a symbol of defiance, resistance, and radical Islam, Osama’s life and message will resonate with Muslims for generations to come.
Another facet that the orgy of euphoria at his death is forgetting that Osama is now a martyr for his cause. Although this does not mean as much to Western cultures, the deeply traditional and conservative Islamic world bestows great accolades to martyr’s who die while attempting to advance the Islamic faith. Here is an example of an explanation concerning the Islamic concept of martyrdom (shahada).
“The word shahada is derived from the Arabic verbal root shahada, which means to ‘see’, to ‘witness’, to ‘testify’, to ‘become a model and paradigm’. Shahada therefore literally means to ‘see’, to ‘witness’, and to ‘become a model’. A shahid is the person who sees and witnesses, and he is therefore the witness, as if the martyr witnesses and sees the truth physically and thus stands by it firmly, so much so that not only does he testify it verbally, but he is prepared to struggle and fight and give up his life for the truth, and thus to become a martyr. In this way, and by his struggle and sacrifice for the sake of the truth, he become a model, a paradigm, and an example for others, worthy of being copied, and worthy of being followed.
In this process, the keyword is ‘truth’ (haqq), its recognition and declaration, the struggle and fight for it, and the preparedness to die for its sake and thus set the model for the seekers of truth. The goal, motive, and the whole aim is the establishment of the truth. Jihad is the means for establishing the truth, and may lead to martyrdom, but does not necessarily lead to being killed for it in the battlefield, although it necessarily involves the continuous Holy Struggle, and death in the cause of the struggle.”
We can see then that young men the world over will revere Osama bin Laden even when and where so-called ‘moderate Muslims’ repudiate the world-view and actions of Osama himself in mainstream media channels designed to dimmish the fears of non Muslims. Although it is not my intention to judge the faith of other people, there is a popular idea idea among nationalists that “not all Muslims in our country are bad.” This is a neocon canard that is quite popular on the web.
It is my belief that despite whatever marginal numbers of Muslim men and women take up the cause of global jihad from bin Laden’s martyrdom, and despite the likelihood of there being millions of Osama bin Laden wannabes and copycats, and many more terrorist atrocities committed in the name of Islam, the true threat facing our people remains the immigration policies of Western countries bringing in literally millions of Muslims who have these beliefs.
Last week in San Francisco I spoke about these views in public to hundreds of people and simultaneously sent a message that Muslims understand. I received an overwhelmingly positive response from our people who know instinctively that Islam and Islamic law is bad for our country and whom are inherently suspicious of the current President of the United States. But that feeling is, and I believe this is true in other countries as well, not articulated, expressed, or is considered ‘politically correct’ by the people that are supposed to be representing our folks best interests.
When I saw the multiracial orgy of frat boy’s celebrating at the White House and Times Square I reflected on what Osama was most recently fighting for, to oppose United States influence in the Middle East and Israel, and while looking at those young vibrant faces chanting “USA, USA,” I realized that bin Laden’s fight was a different front against the same Establishment that is willfully attempting to grind the soul of my people -our people- out of existence to the chants of patriotism and “USA, USA, USA…”
With Islam comes terrorism and demographic displacement from which our people will not recover from at current trends. I speak for myself when I say that I am disappointed that bin Laden was able to help usher in the death of one superpower but did not live long enough to see the end of the second superpower he did everything within his power to bring down.
Rest in peace.
