she died defending our freedoms

Did she die in Iraq?


Did she die in Afghanistan?


Did she carry a gun?

Again, no.

Armed only with her convictions and the courage to defend them, she walked quietly with her child down a street in California.

As a pious Muslim woman, she never left home without her hijab, the traditional head scarf worn by Muslim women. She was proud of her hijab.

In the aftermath of the attacks of September 11, 2001, some of her friends and relatives, afraid of reprisal attacks, took off their hijabs. Alia encouraged them not to compromise their religion, especially when they had nothing to do with those crimes.

As for herself, she told them that she would never take off her hijab, even if someone put a gun to her head demanding that she do so. Alia said that her hijab was her flag.

She could not have known as she began the fateful walk to her children’s school last Thursday that her path would cross that of a lone gunman who in a single act of mindless violence would bring a close to a life of dedication and service.

She could not have known that her grandfather’s words were so close to fulfillment. She could not have known that she would soon die defending her flag.
The author wrote a moving piece in her memory. But, what Alia Ansari died defending was - not her flag - but our freedom.

In defending her freedom to practice her religion, Alia Ansari died defending what America is all about.

Bush drones on forever about sending our troops abroad to 'protect our freedoms' but he's nothing but a miserable snake and a LIAR - people don't 'defend' freedom by conducting pre-emptive wars - people 'defend' freedom by exercising it.

By not giving in to fear and intimidation and doing what it is their right to do.

By calling a spade a spade when they see it, and calling a murderer a murderer - though he might threaten to exact revenge.

William Wallace defended freedom when he refused to pledge allegience to a man who called himself 'king'.

Rosa Parks defended freedom when she sat in the front of the bus.

Martin Luther King defended freedom from his jail cell in Birmingham.

History's list of freedom fighters is long, each one inspiring another to defend the flame that burns inside us all.
Among the believers are those who have been true to their covenant to God. Among them are those who have given their lives, others patiently wait their turn, having never weakened in their resolve. (33:23)
Alia Ansari is now among them.

She was only a little less crazy than the person that shot her. Both were religious nuts and hopefully the world will wake up some day and realize all the suffering that religion has brought and that it is really just a hoax to make people afraid and make rich people richer by hooking the idiots into fighting wars for them.

Thank you for posting on this. Rick, you're a degenerate and a sick bastard for comparing the victim to her murderer, spare us the atheist militant act. Most wars have nothing to do with religion, study the history of communism for starters and you may learn something.

This is another recent event that has been largely ignored by the mainstream news media. If it was a Muslim killing a Christian, it would make the news. If it was a Muslim killing a Hasidic Jew, we would never hear the end of it.

The Zionist-controlled media is complicit in this killing. If the killer didn't have his mind filled with all the hate propaganda against Muslims from the mainstream news media, he probably wouldn't have done it.

An example of promoting hatred through the news media:
During April 1994 in Rwanda a radio station's hate propaganda encouraged the killing of Tutsis by Hutus. Some people who worked at that radio station have since been convicted for their part in the genocide.

As you said, she also died for our freedom. She was a beautiful woman, and I hope to have the same strength as she did. Even after her death, her family is asking for the one who killed her not to be executed because it will not bring her back and she is in a place near to God now and that is the only thing that is important.

Alia, you are an example for us all.

I have another explanation that's perhaps even more frightening. The mainstream media is no longer able to present to the public a "sea of tranquility" for the first time since WWII so this tale gets no air time.

I've noticed this pattern on other stories lately, most notably with outbreaks of fatal diseases in Canada being squelched and the Camp Falcon disaster only getting a brief outline from the Stars and Stripes.

Most generally, this is how a story will get the "radioactive" treatment. There was a failed terrorist attack on London's Canary Wharf on July 7, 2005 resulting in the deaths of two suspected terrorists by police snipers. Because this story genuinely deserves a classified ranking owing to the valuable data it contains in regards to an Israeli-sponsored chemical attack, it gets only a historical purposes nod from the Toronto Globe & Mail. (Canadian financial interests in the wharf likely led to this.) The same thing was done with the 5 dancing Israelis story.

In all probability, the attack on this Moslem woman was done in memory of the Jewish Defence League's Rubin and Krugel, given the location and nature of the murder. To paraphrase a recent disgusting anti-Muslim story in the news, I would say to America's Islamics if you feed this stray cat with the violence it wants from you, surely it will return to your back door on a nightly basis. Instead, make sure you drive all your sick and infirm relatives to the voting stations on any and all election days.

please, visit the new url, which is not quite done - but, you'll forgive me, won't you?

the new url is www.wakeupfromyourslumber.com

all previous posts will remain here, but that's where I'm posting from here on.

drmaxtor? Dr. Ignorant?

Sure, tell me that this whole middle east war is not being played as a religious war between islam and the christians. Ever hear the term islamofacsict that the shrub is spewing these days? Name calling doesn't make your point correct. Go back and pull the wool over your eyes and pray to your idols to save us all...that should make it all go away. Come on, isn't the name of this site "Wake Up From Your Slumber"? You research the origins of these religions and get a clue. They are fake and tools for the elite to control people like you. The comparison made is very accurate. Both are religious zealots both were likely vain and ignorant beliving that theirs is the only true way to salvation. Both represent groups responsible for many thousands of deaths throughout history. One was simply more agressive in their beliefs. The intent of my post was to point out the stupidity of the whole mess. Not to debase her existence, I am sure she was a very nice person and her killer is a deranged lunatic both are on the same end of the religious spectrum though.

At Saturday, October 28, 2006, Blogger qrswave said...

no, rick, each are NOT both ends of the same religious spectrum.

you're simply brainwashed by the grostesquely immoral push by Zionists to de-legitimize everyone's perception of the only remaining moral force on earth - RELIGION.

Whether they're Muslim, Christian, or Jew - the vast majority of God-fearing people are not homicidal maniacs, but people who believe in justice, peace, and equality.

The criminal who killed this woman was nothing but a murderous madman.

She, on the other hand, was a courageous human being, simply defending her right to do with her own person as she wills. She harmed no one and you couldn't be more wrong in your characterization of her conduct, her beliefs, and her character.

It's Zionists and other money-grubbing cultists who want nothing more than to pit everyone against 'religion' in order to de-legitimize the morality that religion represents.

I don't mean you - you're simply mistaken.

Don't you understand - God is the only thing that makes morality so URGENT.

If God exists, then people better get with it, or else.

If God does not exist - as Zionists and other money (and power) hungry criminals would have us believe - then only MIGHT is RIGHT; the STRONG devour the WEAK; and ANYTHING goes.

Qrswave replied for me it seems. I don't know Rick determined that her murderer was a religious fanatic and not somebody utterly ignorant and clueless like himself. Not particularly interested in the lazy atheist spin, particularly when they use Bush words as an example of a genuine person of faith.

At Saturday, October 28, 2006, Blogger M. Shahin said...

Right on qrswave! You explained everything excellently!

And yes, dr. maxtor, I don't know how he figured that this man belonged to a religious group. Assumptions as usual...

I checked out your new location of Truth Will Set YOu Free, and it looks great. Good job! It looks much more appealing and streamlined. I'll be updating my links soon.

oh, and mshahin - please don't delete your link to this site as there is a wealth of information here that is not yet available there. Thanks!

It should be apparent to everyone that anything goes. We don't need a deity to decide that evil is evil. Thus, people like me, and people with opposing religious beliefs, can see that evil is evil and good is good and make the decision between hurting people, helping people, and neglecting people.

It's not a 2 sided situation on the existence of a deity. As far as whether or not people will start getting with it, it doesn't really matter whether or not a god exists: It matters whether or not people can decide to believe in it, considering that people very clearly are required to believe without proof. If on the other hand god does not exist, then people have to continue to be responsible for everything on their own and become a race that can perpetuate itself off the desire to do good instead of out of fear of a deity. Kind of like the way that every decent person who hasn't believed in a deity has done since the beginning of human sentience.

You just debased her existence with your hideous rant.


"Both are religious zealots both were likely vain and ignorant beliving that theirs is the only true way to salvation."

And there you go, you do it again.


Now you say this:

"The intent of my post was to point out the stupidity of the whole mess. Not to debase her existence, I am sure she was a very nice person....."

I think you need to set aside your hateful atheistic attitude and go back to school and learn COMPREHENSION 101.

Come back in 5 years and maybe we can understand you better.

What is really scary to me is the assumption that this was a hate crime at all. It's as if everyone desperately wants it to be one, so that they can whine about it in the way that they know how. There is NO evidence to support this conclusion, people!
Now if I WERE to intuit, I would choose the most likely suspect: her own husband. Statistics on domestic violence and islamic "honor" killings of women support this guess, but there are other red flags: The family does not want to discuss it at all. The family closest to Alia's is angry for Islamic political groups to jump all over this one, calling it a hate crime. The father is silent, then takes off with all six kids on one-way tickets to Afghanistan, ostensibly for family/economic reasons. Is this how the trust fund established in Alia's memory was spent? C'mon, all those of you out there with good sense. I know I'm not the only one thinking this.

Kukai, what evidence do you have that the husband is involved? A Muslim woman is shot and you insist its an "honor crime" in order to raise the profile of Muslim political groups. Conspiracy theory alert! Wrong forum loser, this isnt little green footballs. Not only are you a racist degenerate but an ignorant idiot who has little respect for human life.
