Islam and the West

"According to Prophet Muhammad - Sallal Allahu Alayhi wa Salaam (peace be upon him) - the believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When any part of the body suffers, the whole body feels pain," she said. "New Zealand mourns with you, we are one." Her message was clear. Islam is neither the "other" nor the "invader"....

Somewhere along the line, Tarrant got radicalized and became a hateful racist who was consumed by alt-right conspiracy theories and historical nonsense. The manifesto he posted online showed that he was consumed with Australia’s European heritage, and it made reference to incidents that European white nationalists cite to vilify Islam...

 

Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand’s valiant Prime Minister may expunge Brenton Harrison Tarrant’s name from her vocabulary, but the world’s 1.8 billion Muslims, comprising more than 24.1 per cent of the human race, will not forget him or Anders Breivik if they are convinced they are being demonised and must be avenged....

 

Siege narratives abound on both sides. “Very much like the Islamic State invoked crusader-era narratives throughout their propaganda war, the New Zealand shooter . . . left references to things like the 1683 siege of Vienna, the 1183 siege of Akko....

This should make us in India introspect deeply. Our multi-cultural fabric is being ripped apart by an ideology that is gaining traction and that privileges the sentiments of the most bigoted members of the majority community....

The two men mix rage with self-pity. They see themselves as victims and use terms like “invasion,” “mass immigration” and “white genocide” to describe what they regard as the destruction of Europe and the white race. Both the Australian and the Norwegian barely mention their own homelands and focus on Europe and the United States.....

 

It is a great irony that this offshoot of Wahhabism, call it Wahhabism from below, has also become the mortal enemy of Wahhabism from above symbolized by the Saudi regime and its allied religious establishment....

“If one is attacked as a Jew,” Hannah Arendt wrote, “one must defend oneself as a Jew.” When you are attacked as a Muslim, you must respond as a Muslim. And today, we are all Muslims — all of us who are committed to the light of our civilisation, to peace, to saving our society from the primitive barbarism of such poisoned, inadequate minds....

 

From where did this 28-year-old foster so much hatred in his heart that he could still shoot the man who greeted him with kindness, without batting an eyelid? This hate is born out of the information we are constantly fed from our immediate environment....

 

But many Europeans and North Americans — as well as Sangh Parivar diehards — probably quietly agree with Queensland's Senator Fraser Anning, 70, that “it highlights the growing fear… of the increasing Muslim presence”. He blames “the immigration programme which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place”. That coupling of “Muslim” with “fanatics” is bound to resonate in many non-Muslim circles....

 

If the gunman’s 74-page manifesto and social media posts are to be believed, he was inspired by a thriving online ideological structure that recruits and radicalizes mostly men to save “Western civilization” from a foreign “invasion.” We’ve seen this before...

Both despise modernity, feminism, LGBTQ rights, secularism, urbanity, and education. Both love guns, militarism, theocracy, expansionism, and a return to the “good old days.” They’re essentially two sides of the same hyper-conservative coin....

… it's a particular form of hate and hate crimes that blames immigrants and outsiders and people who look different. It's impossible to see this crime and this mass murder just as a mass shooting. It took place in the context of the global spread of white nationalism....

 

Over the past two weeks, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has been the victim of anti-Muslim attacks and death threats. But rather than stand in solidarity with her in the face of this chilling and dangerous racism, her colleagues have exploited the opportunity to reignite bad faith accusations of anti-Semitism against her....

 

I don’t like Aipac because I strongly believe in the right of the Jewish people to build a nation-state in their ancient homeland — a nation-state envisaged by its founders to reflect the best of Jewish and democratic values....

Kushner has two paramount concerns while sitting comfortably in the big pocket of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS): pursuing his own personal financial gains and helping Israel steal what is left of Palestine....

 

If the only way a Muslim, a minority or a woman can get to the top is by taking a hardline stance against their own communities, then their presence is arguably more damaging than a government without any diversity at all....

 

Then the voting on the anti-bigotry resolution started. Every Democrat present backed the resolution, but 23 Republicans voted against it. It was a reminder that while Democrats sometimes fail to live up to the ideals of multiethnic democracy, Republicans don’t seem to recognize those ideas at all. Omar needs to do better, but right now there’s still only one political party in America that is a safe place for hate....

 

“Israel has hypnotized the world,” she tweeted in 2012. “May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” Last month, she wrote that U.S. support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins baby.” A few weeks after that, she told an audience in D.C. that “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is O.K. to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”...

 

The male Islamist thugs behind the “strong Muslim women” such as Sarsour, Tlaib and Ilhan keep presenting themselves. They harbour sociopathic hate for women, specifically Muslim women who don’t toe the party line. This is not a secret to anyone who is Muslim, especially a Muslim reformist woman. We see it and we experience it....

 

Portraying the women of the Islamic State exclusively as victims to be saved or monsters to be feared strips women of their humanity and denies them the complexity, nuance, and depth that media and policymakers readily afford to men....

 

“It’s not my position to tell people how to feel, or that their hurt is invalid,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Tuesday morning. “But incidents like these do beg the question: where are the resolutions against homophobic statements? ...

 

The US President Trump has started especial initiative to get its puppet government led by Ashraf Ghani elected again as he does not want Taliban to come to power. But strangely enough, the Taliban have shown no interest in capturing the power in Kabul. Instead they just want to retain their hold on the area they hold sway over. According the Russian ambassador in Kabul, Zameer Qobolov, Taliban enjoy control over fifty per cent of the country where the writ of the Afghan government does not run.... 

 

Leadership in our faith tradition is no joke. To be an imam or a community leader comes with a lot of responsibility and authority. A leader’s words or actions can have either a detrimental or positive impact on hundreds or even thousands of people...

 

Muslims, who have been duty-bound to submit to Quranic revelations of getting to “know each other,” cannot truly fulfil this duty unless we counter this epistemic racism that inhibits accurate knowledge about Africa and its descendants....
