Abu Azzam's Ranking

By Dr. Robert Katz

There seems to be some faux controversy over whether Abu Azzam was indeed Al - Qaida's "number 2 man" in Iraq. What's missing from this discussion is that this amoral, atrocity committing "militant", was a grotesque malformation of what it means to be a human being. He was guilty of crimes against humanity and if a politician wants to ballyhoo his ranking, it's not the end of the world. My gosh -- the horror!!! A politician claiming credit, and putting positive spin on one of his purported accomplishments!! It's a subjective call anyway. The point is: he's out of commission -- permanently, and that can only be a good thing. To bicker back and forth as to his true numerical place in the terror perpetrating world, or the circle of Hell he shall burn in, in the next life, is to miss the point. And that salient point is taken from the age old classic "The Wizard of Oz" --- to wit --- "Ding-dong, The witch is dead". This is what matters. One does not argue over which hair on Medusa's head was longer, or more powerful, or stronger -- all the hairs on that Greek mythological figure's head were snakes. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition -- and move on to the next one --- and stop needlessly squandering unity. Full speed ahead with the mission.
