The poor fool who blew himself up in Sweden a couple of days ago apparently wrote this to the police:
Now will your children, daughters and sisters die the same way our brothers and sisters die.
The same useless, horrible way that leads only to more hatred and destruction and achieves nothing for peace, justice or progress. The monstrous actions of the Western so-called democracies can only be countered by… the same monstrous actions on a smaller scale.
The same way, he said. But if you take the same way, you end up at the same destination.
And with tragic irony, the fool continued:
Our actions will speak for themselves.
So they did. Reminding us that you cannot fight the enemy with the methods of the enemy, because as cliché as they’ve made it sound, by doing so you become the enemy.
