“Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned” (Prov 6:27-28)?
This passage is talking about the consequences of adultery or illicit sex but when transposed to our situation, it rhetorically stresses the penalty of playing with danger.
Those of the circus world know these words because many have embraced death while the fortunate ones remain maimed and wheelchair ridden. For example in December 1964, an animal keeper with O’Connells Circus was killed and eaten by four lions. In Oct. 3, Montecore, a 600-pound male tiger mauled Roy Horn in Las Vegas.
In Ola Rotimi’s “The God’s are not to Blame”, the people pay highly when Odewale the cursed child is preserved and protected than being liquidated; thereby, defying the gods. He becomes a tyrant, kills the father and marries the mother. The same thing happened in “Oedipus”, where Oedipus instead of being thrown as prophesied by the gods, was given to a Theban Shepeherd. He ends up killing his father Laius to marry his mother Jocasta. No one plays with fire and goes free.
Today, it is the United States of America (US) that is playing with fire. The US does not seem to learn any lesson from the past. In romance, a three-letter word destabilizes individuals, but this one called OIL destabilizes only nations and leaders.
Until the crab is in the pot, it does not differentiate between two kinds of water. Sometimes the way the US spends it money makes me wonder. Take the case of the Accoustic Kitty. On the 5th of November 2001, the Herald revealed that the CIA cat was run down by a taxi. It happened that the CIA had spent more than $15 millions dollars within a five-year period wiring a cat to eavesdrop in Kremlin. On its very first assignment it was run down by a taxi to the dismay of its team that was still sitting in their van, yet that is not our preoccupation. The security issues that preoccupy you and I are the dangers that await us all because the acts of terrorism do not differentiate between nations, people, colors and languages. Everybody is a potential enemy and victim as far as terrorism is concerned. That is why all of us should take it very seriously.
From 9/11 to 7/7 Islamic militants have proven that Islam is a blood thirsty religion. In every country where they are a majority, they have maltreated all other religions and disallowed them. Let us play a bit with these numbers. 9/11 suggests the emergency intervention number of many states and 7/7 symbolizes the number of perfection. That means; it is the perfect time for urgent intervention. How is the US playing with fire? We paid, trained and armed a group of terrorists in Nicaragua in the 1980s who killed over 30,000 civilians. Osama Bin Laden received security training from the CIA itself, according to Middle Eastern analyst Hazhir Teimourian. “The U.S. restored formal relations with Iraq in November 1984, but the U.S. had begun several years earlier, to provide it with intelligence and military support (in secret and contrary to this country's official neutrality) in accordance with policy directives from President Ronald Reagan. These were prepared pursuant to his March 1982 National Security Study Memorandum (NSSM 4-82) asking for a review of U.S. policy toward the Middle East”. In 1986, the same US that had supported Gaddafi, bombed Libya and killed 39 people including his baby daughter. He that forms monsters should wait for his turn because when they finish his enemies they will turn to him.
Despite all these, the US does not seem to understand there is no moderate Islam. Islam is the fastest growing religion in the US especially among its black populace. That is really keeping the Obanje (ibo: for cursed child). While at the same time they are invoking Everson v. Board of Education, 330 U.S. 1 (1947) Docket Number: 52 calling for separation between the church and state when Christianity is concerned, they are neglecting the fact that Islam is expanding right here. Why are there muezzins in the city of Hamtramck in Michigan while Christians need permission to use a megaphone on the street to preach in Atlanta? Why can’t a Christian child wear a Christian Tee shirt in school without it raising storms or the child being suspended? Why America?? Oh why?
The plan of the Muslims is to take over America because conquering America means ruling the world. Ironically, America, founded by runaway Christian pilgrims is helping Islam achieve its goal. The Christians are addicted to comfort and singles are more concerned with mingling than living for God and spreading the word. We are allowing the godless to snatch our rights while we slumber in a religion of tolerance. The Europeans can’t do anything because a country like France has 30% of Muslims because of its desire for cheap North African labor. Perhaps not even Cameroon whose president “Paul Biya being a Christian who had even been to the senior seminary to be ordained a Catholic Priest” still had to create a ministry of Islamic and religious Affairs in a secular country. The US is also falling into the trap with Middle East Oil. Why can’t the US drill oil or dig oil wells in the US and leave Arabic oil alone? They use our money we bought oil to buy bomb materials from Russia to kill us. Why are we playing with fire, my friends? No person has ever gotten away with keeping the accursed thing. Ask the Jews during the AI incident. If you can’t find any Jew read Joshua chapters 7 and 8.
See, we are losing even our happiness. Why is divorce higher in America than in Italy, France, Holland and other European nations where prostitution is legalized? God is entirely out, and the devil is taking over. Folks, no nation can serve two masters at a time (Mt 6:24; Joshua 24:15). We are either with God or we are not. We are either for God or against Him. Godless and Islamic pilgrims did not found America. It was founded by God-fearing puritans absconding from the excesses of religion in Europe. So why is the US giving more importance to Islam and Islamic nations than Christianity and Christian nations. The Muslim countries benefit from American Aid than Christian nations (excluding Israel), yet we still live in fear. Even our kids know we live in fear. They sit and call bomb scare and schools are closed. The more we flirt with Muslim oil in particular and Islam as a whole, the more we are bound to always live on Orange or Red.
Oh America, how has the mighty fallen!
There is an African proverb that says when the neighbor’s dog is barking continuously in the night, wake up and spy, you could be next. When 9/11 struck the British thought Scotland Yard has done enough until 7/7 paid them a visit. May the family of the deceased be consoled. The mighty has fallen because it is playing with fire. America stop playing with fire, for you shall be burnt.
