Today in Florida we wait to see what negative impact the passing of Tropical Storm Colin will have. Bracing for bad news is never fun no matter how long one has to prepare.
For some reason, during this period of waiting for the storm to hit, I began thinking about all of Dzhokhar’s friends who will likely be released from prison before Dzhokhar himself.
Let there no longer be any doubt: Yes, I still believe in Dzhokhar’s innocence and in the certainty that Almighty God will effect his exoneration and release while I am still alive to see it.
Now back to Dzhokhar’s friends…
I believe the first one due to be released is Khairullozhon Matanov.
I hate what he has been put through. I hate what my government did to him. My disgust and disdain for those responsible for Khairullozhon’s false imprisonment and mistreatment while so imprisoned is total, valid and shared by many.
To arrest, convict and imprison a person, causing them to lose everything, for doing nothing more than deleting some computer files out of fear that those files may have made them look like a terrorist is unconscionable.
People in other countries don’t hate America for its wealth and freedoms. They hate America for what it does to people like Khairullozhon Matanov. And yet America keeps doing it.
What Judge Young said to Khair at sentencing was, to be polite, uncalled for. Judge Young, village idiot who got his judicial panties in a wad on the day of sentencing – how Khair found the inner strength to stay calm and withstand his barrage of undeserved, hurtful and insulting words is beyond me. How Khair endured what he suffered in the months spent in prison is also beyond me.
My hope is that he has held onto his humanity in the face of inhumanity. My hope is that he has held onto his dignity while untold indignities have been suffered upon him. My hope is that in spite of evil’s best efforts to fill him with hate and make him into a terrorist, Khair will emerge from prison as the law-abiding, hard-working, thoughtful, family-oriented young man he was before.
I read that Khair will be subject to three years of supervised probation and then deported. This continuance of heavy-handed and totally unjustified tactics will only tell the American people their government has big secrets of in-house bad behavior to protect.
Do they really think deporting these kids after their release is going to keep them quiet? Hasn’t the FBI ever heard the saying “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer?”
If a country mistreated me in the manner these boys have suffered then booted me out of the country afterwards, I would be even more inclined to tell whatever I did know to anyone who would listen.
In fact, I would probably become a prolific blogger and tweeter. I would let the world know just how I was entrapped and threatened and abused. I would tell in intimate detail what I had done to try to assist the authorities. I would explain my thought processes.
Kind of like I do now on this blog…
I only hope we don’t have to endure reading about the sad and sudden passing of each of these boys once they are released and deported. If my government finds a way to make each of these boys “fall out of a helicopter in a training exercise” so-to-speak I will feel pain and outrage to my very core. My only comfort in that instance would be in knowing that my Heavenly Father sees all and is not sitting idle.
Just yesterday He spoke to me again about those who are guilty of the Boston Marathon bombing and all the crimes related and connected to it – which includes the crimes committed against all of Dzhokhar’s friends. Here is what He said:
“Of whom were you worried and fearful when you lied and did not remember Me nor give Me a thought? Was I not silent even for a long time so you do not fear Me?” Isaiah 57:11
This is a question God will ask of the wicked one day and they will have to give an answer. God will not be silent forever.
I love the way WordPress works.
As the sole administrator of this blog, I have complete control over what comments get published and what comments do not. When a person comments under any blog post, I get an email containing the comment. If they have never had a comment approved before, no one sees the comment but me. I also see the email address of the person who sent the comment.
If I so choose, I can delete the comment, respond to the person in an email, advise the commenter who I am in the subject line of the email, and we can begin a conversation in total privacy. As long as I never approve the comment, no one will ever know I am in contact with the person who sent it.
I am pleased to have become a voice for the voiceless. I accept my calling and gifting as one of God’s end-time prophets. If, by identifying as such, a certain segment of the population is offended or amused, so be it.
Maybe someday, upon their release, Khair or another of Dzhokhar’s friends will contact me through this blog. As God is my protection and shield, I will not be afraid to say, with His leading and their permission, whatever story they would like the world to know.
“No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you.” Joshua 1:5
I love truth and remain committed to it. A prophet can do no less. It is who we are. We do not delete files. And when we or those we love are threatened, we tell the world.
And God, in His perfect timing, does the rest. To Him be all the glory.
