Why Muslims need a different Ben Ladin?
A lot of Muslims/Arab and even foreigners understands well the complelling reasons for his terrible terrorist attacks of 9/11. Even the Aemrican administration acknowledge that and talked about the hopelessness and severe oppression and poverty as causes for terrorism. They admitted as well their unconditioned and unjustified support to the Arab regimes. The words are good but action is what count. As Muslims/Arabs we have always to keep open door that actions may come at sometime. As one other Muslim politicians Mawya said " If there is a thraid of hair between me and the other people I would never cut it off". Ben Ladin may be still a hero to many muslims and arabs. However, he did attract the moderates who are the greatest and the most able so less brave part of the masses. The animalistic styles of killing Muslims and non-muslims and the failure to talk politics harmed well their cause. So other alternatives are very difficult to do. However, moderate Muslims would have been better got organized and get new front against all the terrorists/Jihadists, Arab dictators and American hypocracy. The problem is they think they can work through the American government. The trick is the American government main taks is to fight the terrerists so they need the Arab tyrants for a number of years. President Bush agenda is likely to correct the mess of Iraq and get out of there which is not bad for him and his country. As American I do not think it is good for our security and interest in America. As An Arab/Muslim I feel it is just to all of these millions of oppressed and poor people to be freed. The moderate Arab/Muslim will be having against them however very strong and repressive regimes. They also have to work carefully with American govenrment or just accept that their obligations to the Arab tyrants are more important now. The Arab and Muslim moderates would need to gather masses around them and use all resources particularly the media. The need a kind of a leader that can gather them. If there is no Mahdi they have to make one a geopolitical leader or a group of elite that best represent them. They have to accept Israel as first goal. Relgiously it is also their land and with the Plastinian they have to work things out. We need our main goals to get rid of the tyrants and create democratic prosporus socities enjoying the mainstream Islam which is very moderate. I do not care if the Muslim world will look like an Empire or as prosporus and loosly connected states. All I care is we get the best of Islam to the advantage of Muslims and non-Muslims. We have to deal with America prudently even the Europeans do that. We have to win politically the major powers as China, EU and Russia. All powers in the world would appreciate a non hostile, moderate and civillized group of Islamic states that would adapt the humanistic cooperative approach to all problems with open dialogue, no secrecy or imperialism.
