Alleged mastermind behind 9/11 attacks says he has renounced violence
National Post ^ | January 14, 2014 | Araminta Wordsworth

Instead of blowing people up, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attack wants to bring converts to Islam by subtler means of persuasion.

Khalid Sheik Mohammed is seeking to convince members of the military tribunal trying him at Guantamo Bay he has renounced violence.

In a 36-page manifesto published in the Huffington Post, he even argues, “The Holy Koran forbids us to use force as a means of converting” and reaching “truth and reality never comes by muscles and force but by using the mind and wisdom.”

“Don’t believe the media that the mujahedeen believe that Islam spread in the past and will prevail in the future with the sword,” he adds.

This will put him at odds with co-religionists who are busily waging jihad around the world — from Afghanistan and Syria to Libya and Mali, to name only the most bitter conflicts.

Too late.

He killed 3,000 people (approx.), injured hundreds if not thousands, some with crippling injuries, destroyed four airliners, two skyscrapers and did a hundred billion dollars in damage.

Off with his head.

Because of his victims.

Well if we put him to death for his crimes, he can act as peacefully as he wants in hell.

OK. Then ask him if the Koran forbids violence and he himself renounces violence then what is the punishment for killing someone? Then ask him what is the punishment for killing 3,000 people? Prisons are full of people who have supposedly seen the light however they still receive their punishment.

Yeah, don't behead people, just threaten to kill them and rape their children, dogs, and goats. Burning down Christian churches isn't actually violence, BTW. /s

Is Khalid saying that Mohammed was a blasphemer?

Not buying this so much. But it got me thinking: How much good could be done if a high level Islamist fighter had a Road to Damascus moment, converted, and became a driving force for Christianity. Oh well, I can dream.

I want ALL of them dead and removed from this earth. islam should be totally destroyed, and all mindless adherents sent to hell. If I could get the shots, I’d buy a billion+ bullets and take the shots. This muzzie cancer must be completely eradicated.

I believe that if he was truly repentant before God that he would be forgiven.

But I could never forgive him.

I want the bastard hung.

The criminal should be drowned in pig fat.

He should at a minimum be water boarded in pig fat.
Then his usable organs harvested, what’s left
can be buried at sea of the coast of New Jersey
by a scow.

Compell the others to do the illegal dirty work for you.

In other words he just went up in ranks in AlQaeda’s military.
