وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَيَأْتِيَنَّ عَلَى النَّاسِ زَمَانٌ لاَ يَدْرِي الْقَاتِلُ فِي أَىِّ شَىْءٍ قَتَلَ وَلاَ يَدْرِي الْمَقْتُولُ عَلَى أَىِّ شَىْءٍ قُتِلَ
By the One in Whose Hand is my soul, a time will most certainly come when the murderer would not know why he has committed the murder while the victim would not know why he has been killed. — Prophet Muhammad,
related by Abu Hurayrah – recorded in Sahih Muslim, #2908
What is western civilization? Does it mean that not only can one be the victim of a senseless crime, but even our elderly will have their demise live streamed on the internet? Robert Godwin, a 74-year-old elderly man, was approached by Steve Stephens in broad daylight and executed whilst being filmed on Facebook’s new live streaming feature, Facebook Live.
I cannot sleep. There comes a point where the violence can’t be shrugged off; the cynicism cannot wash away the blood. We live in a civilization of terror.
