BY now it must be painfully obvious, even to the ‘luvvies,’ that the extremists of Daesh are hellbent on making life on our beautiful planet a living hell.
Every aspect of their existence is firmly geared toward turning the miracle of our glorious human manifestation into one that is evil, utterly lacklustre and totally devoid of all its happiness, love and fun, and boy is it succeeding!
It has managed to repress the glamour and personality of its female members: restrict dancing and singing: all but destroy the wonderful joys of travelling, particularly by air (who can forget the heart-lifting excitement of being invited into the cockpit by the pilots of yore?).
It has blighted our holiday destinations and beaches with death, destruction and the sight of oppressed women in Burkinis. It has attacked our sporting events, slaughtered people enjoying shopping malls and made just about every happy public occasion a reason to keep glancing over our shoulders in case a rampaging gunman or suicide bomber is sidling up behind us.
There is of course a method in their undoubted madness. The more horrific they make the earthly journey, the easier it is to induct new recruits into their twisted organisation. Promises of heavenly paradise are far more easily welcomed by those whose lives are hardly worth waking up for. The most ludicrous of all is of course the 72 virgin offers.
What I would like to know is what they offer female terrorists? Seventy-two virgin Brad Pitt lookalikes? Ha! If it weren’t so serious it would be laughable.
But it is of course, deadly serious. We must never waver in our firm commitment to wipe this evil from the face of our Earth; thereby allowing us to enjoy its glorious gifts and simply take our own chances on any possible life hereafter.
Keep the faith.
