The recent tragic news of three soldiers being murdered by a rogue Afghan policeman should be a warning to all of us. Our brave troops are out there working with these people trying to change them. It must be a thankless task at the best of times, but after this event, it will never be the same again. This will live on in their minds for as long as they are posted there.
What the west fails to realise is that these people are Islamic first, and everything else second. For them, Islam is everything. They are fanatical about it, even the peaceful ones. The problem is, they can be turned by ‘the dark side!’ quite easily. Seemingly friendly allies can turn on a sixpence and become fanatical enemies in a heart beat, as evidenced by this tragic event.
The lesson, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. A leopard cannot change its spots, neither will the west change Islam.
