:salam2: be patient fourteen, as there are even adults who face your dilemma. As muslims we must follow sharia ( that is court) no man can be found guilty of anything unless his matter has been presented to the court. Now for years we have been hearing this Alqaida thing permeate throughout the world. Such an insignificant presence they had but yet there all over and they are trying to kill. This is not true according to people who live in the middle east. When 9/11 happened there became a motto called war on terror. So they attache'd a term in pursuit of who they felt did the violence. They coined it with the operation we know of today as alqaida. Believe me 1.5 billion muslims in the world and I bet there was like 10% who actually knew that group existed prior to that. As with any organization there needs to be a leader. So they attached it to the person who had the most influence in that group. There were also videos where he supposedly admitted doing acts of what the west calls terror. And they are terror acts, since average people with no fighting front or army where randomly killed. If he had confronted an army then it would of just been fighting. Alqaida was never organized and is still today disorientated. Among the people who attach their affiliations with this group, they never agree on anything except 1 that is Jerusalem must be free. Now Arab countries trying to get fancy weapons and military support used this to their advantage to instill their power on the people. Every single country that agreed to wage a war on terror and eliminate the alqaida threat, was given weapons, money, and military training for free. this mounts up to billions of dollars for each country per year. Now after more than 10 years of oppression and killing of innocent people all over the world, there is a shift since it is too costly for nations to maintain. The USA always had their special ops, if they wanted to, with their technology and power they could of just sent them in and done what they had to do. Instead they played the political maneuvering game, which now with the uprisings seems to have been worthless efforts. So in sha Allah, they moving their position and to mend they must show a major turning point otherwise it would be like Vietnam and they will be criticized. The news came out, so be it, it is what it is. Now lets make progress in relieving the oppressed in the world. This can't be accomplished if we waste our time in speculation and suspicion. The first step is to look deeply to ourselves and ask honestly are we deserving? Is our eman where it should be? and finally are we an ummah in compliance to how our prophet, PBUH taught us? Are we doing the things that are necessary to carry weight on the good deed side of the scale on the day of judgment?
