Yet another one of life's strange coincidences...

Stumbled onto a verse from the Qur'an (detailed text, RealPlayer) that seems strangely appropriate to our times. It seems stranger still that nobody has mentioned it before...

"Wherever ye are, death will find you out, even if ye are in towers built up strong and high!" If some good befalls them, they say, "This is from Allah"; but if evil, they say, "This is from thee" (O Prophet). Say: "All things are from Allah." But what hath come to these people, that they fail to understand a single fact? "

You have to wonder whether 9/11 was Osama Bin Laden's attempt at gallows humor -- a kind of in-joke amongst Muslims. Part of me wonders whether we'll be watching videos of him stepping over boulders for the next twenty years, but on a realistic level I can't see how he can get away indefinitely, no matter how botched the war on terrorism has been. Sooner or later he will be sold down the river, because that's the nature of the beast.

I still hope the rest of the world gets the last laugh.
