[14.17] He will drink it little by little and will not be able to swallow it agreeably, and death will come to him from every quarter, but he shall not die; and there shall be vehement chastisement before him.
[14.18] The parable of those who disbelieve in their Lord: their actions are like ashes on which the wind blows hard on a stormy day; they shall not have power over any thing out of what they have earned; this is the great error.

I am beginning to see this is the truth, all people that commit "evil" seem to be suffering in their lives, not in big ways but just by little things that happen that make them angry and sad, yet they still don't seem to take responsibility for their actions and the resulting consequences that seem so unrelated and unconnected to them.

For some reason I find myself listening to Pink Floyd right now and i'm getting a further education from their track Wish you were here, wow! right on the money there. I wonder if this Islam way of fighting evil dooers is actually a good thing; do I want a lead role in a cage, or a walk on part in the war?

[14.45] And you dwell in the abodes of those who were unjust to themselves, and it is clear to you how We dealt with them and We have made (them) examples to you.

Am I getting the message yet? One thing that is coming through loud and clear is that while the Islamic belief is somewhere in between Christianity and the philosophy of Yoga, its dynamicism and active support of merciless attacks on unbelievers is more akin to V for Vendetta's terrorism. V may very well be acting out the will of Allah

The Quran
