    So now we are going to canonize a terrorist, murderer and a tool of the soviet union? He killed women and children. He is no saint. But a demon that will burn in hell. I am constantly amazed at our ability to ignore and change the reputations of some really bad people. I.E. Yassir Arafat as an elder statesman. And Muamar Ghadafi as a reasonable leader and World Citizen before the Arab Spring. I am beginning to think that if Hitler had survived he would have been eventually seen as a world visionary. This idolation of violent murderers as great men makes me sick to My stomach and makes me wonder what is really wrong with the world today that we see such men in a positive light.
