Brussels and the war on Terror

I would like to say that there have not been any more terror attacks on innocent people since the atrocities that happened in Paris a few months back but as I am sure you must already know by the time this is posted what happened last week.  

I would like to say how sad I am for the people of Brussels and how my heart and thoughts go out to all involved and who live there.

I am not going to delve into the seriously disturbed acts one human being can perpetrate against another, as we see this every night on the news.  What I want to discuss is how these people, the ones that carry out these acts are essentially being hidden by the ones that call themselves "peaceful" Muslims.  

Recently, I read a news story saying that one of the people that was involved in the Paris attacks was hold up in Brussels, being hidden in an area where the police deemed "no go zone".  Why?  because this area was where the "peaceful" Muslims lived and worshiped so in fairness to people that say they would never do such awful things they regarded this area as OK.  Or at least until they had to arrest this guy in their area.  It is now what the police believe to be the event that ticked off this latest attach in Brussels.

I am all about Freedoms, freedom of speech, religion, whatever have you.  And I have never thought before that all Muslims were indeed like this.  But I am beginning to look at my own beliefs now.  

Just like how the Catholics hid their pedophile priests for decades without a care for the children they where hurting by just moving them from one place to another.  These so called peaceful Muslims are just as much to blame for these terror attacks as the people doing them.

The church is just as guilty as the priests, just as the Muslims are just as guilty for hiding these animals from the law.  I did not always think this way but time and time again I have seen or read that the terrorist that have gotten away from some of these attacks are being held up in the communities of the people that claim they are not like the terrorists!

You can not have it both ways.  You can not say how great and peaceful your choice of religion is and then condone the horrible acts of people that claim they are practicing your religion!

Muslim people, if they are truly serious about NOT being like these terrorist need to step up and start to hand over these terrorist when they hide out in their communities, they need to speak up when they hear one of them is planning on bombing something or causing harm to people.  They need to get their house in order and be part of a greater community of people of the world and get rid of these terrorist among them.  They are the key to ending this, but will they do what is necessary?

I hate to say this but this is just one more reason that I do not and will not ever believe in an omnipotent being. I believe that religion and the pursuit of divine knowledge will what will eventually lead to the end of life as we know it.
