Islam and the West

The Senate’s failure to override President Trump’s veto of its effort to end U.S. military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen is not the end of the story. A way can and must be found to stop U.S. assistance in refueling, targeting, and other activities that bolster the Saudi/United Arab Emirates....

 

Afghanistan has been mired in conflict for some 40 years. It has been almost 18 years since America and other NATO members invaded to kick out the Taliban in the wake of the September 11th attacks….

 
Attacking Iran Would Risk Global Disaster
Attacking Iran Would Risk Global Disaster
John Scales Avery, New Age Islam

Such a war would completely destabilize the already-unstable Middle East. In Pakistan, the unpopularity of the US-Israel alliance, as well as the memory of numerous atrocities, might lead to the overthrow of Pakistan's less-than-stable government. Israel's response might be a pre-emptive attack on Pakistan's nuclear installations. Russia and China might also be drawn into the conflict. There would be a grave danger of escalation into a full-scale nuclear war....

 

Apart from the IMF ‘bail-outs’, Pakistan has also received generous financial aid packages from other prominent international economic agencies, including the World Bank and Asian Development Bank....

 

The island nation has witnessed just about every form of political violence over the last few decades, but almost all of it within the context of an ethnic conflict between the Sinhala majority and the ....

 

All the while, alt-right and white nationalist groups can continue to spew vile, hateful speech that inspires violent racists to shoot synagogues, mosques and churches.....

The Sahel, a semi-arid zone that extends through 10 countries, is almost at breaking point. Repeated food crises and water shortages have exacerbated ethnic divisions. Poverty and corruption are endemic. Four of the countries worst affected by violence – Mali, Niger, Chad and Burkina Faso...

 

Meanwhile the Palestinian leadership is redoubling its efforts to build Arab opposition to the plan, none of whose details have yet been revealed. Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas has toured Arab capitals seeking a consensus to oppose it, whatever it contains and whenever it is revealed....

Ignoring Earnest's vicious racism, explicitly articulated inspiration, and white supremacist ideology, several congressmen opted for a quick bait-and-switch, and instead blamed Ilhan Omar, Democrats, and the "liberal" media for the attack....

Fewer plots are reaching the late stage of planning. Yet for some, the propaganda appeal of both IS and al-Qaeda lives on. MI5 says that 80% of the plots disrupted by western intelligence agencies last year involved people inspired by violent jihadist ideology yet who had no contact with its leadership in the Middle East.....

 

A separate bomber task-force was also being deployed to the region. The move, Mr Bolton said, was a response to “troubling and escalatory” intelligence warnings about Iran’s behaviour...

Like pyromaniac firemen, US officials are preaching peace and security, but in reality, are firing up conflict and violence to the detriment of the Middle East. If they don't stop and reverse course, the very fires they have fanned may eventually burn them too....

Initially held back by the rulings of judges who did not find legal bases for changes in immigration enforcement, the Trump administration is now racing full speed ahead to accomplish a central goal that the president and his allies have long promised their voter base....

Italian Americans consider the move an encroachment on their “ethnic pride”, and in the US — that sees itself as a “nation of nations”, whose diverse population trace their ancestry to every country in the world — everyone is ethnic, an ethnic pride is readily flaunted, indeed often paraded in the streets....

When Omar said about 9/11 that “some people did something…” she was parroting the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists, which is all about deflection. She made it clear in this one short, obscene statement where she stands in terms of loyalty to the land in which she lives and was democratically elected....

But the tweet was widely interpreted as tapping into the anti-Semitic trope of linking Jews with money. Democratic public figures, including Chelsea Clinton, condemned the tweet; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the House Democratic leadership issued a “Statement on Anti-Semitic Comments of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar....

 

The rule of the gun prevails in Libya ever since western forces overthrew Qaddafi. The oil-rich country, now a departure point for thousands of migrants travelling to Europe, once had one of Africa’s highest standards of living, free health care and education, with high female literacy...

 

I know Omar doesn’t support terrorism. I know she doesn’t support the Al-Qaeda terrorists who wrapped themselves in Islam and distorted the true meaning of her religion. But 2,996 people died on Sept. 11, 2001, mostly civilians. Many of those murdered were Muslim and Arab. They deserve more powerful reverence....

A small group of Muslims committed the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, but many Americans blamed Islam itself. Muslims quickly became targets of fear, disdain and demagogic political rhetoric....

For me, condemning Omar’s trivialization of the Sept. 11 mass murders is an act of being fully American, being a physician advocate for my 9/11 survivor patients and their families, and at the same time – keeping in line with Islam’s clear teachings – being fully Muslim. Omar’s words are a grotesque injustice against people who have already experienced diabolic injustice...

From the CIA’s funnelling of over a billion dollars to Islamic militants in the 1970s war in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union to the billion dollars spent on training and equipping the radical jihadists currently fighting in Syria, the United States has repeatedly empowered extremists who have filled the vacuums of failed states it created....

 

Her comments sparked an ugly episode among House Democrats when they responded with a resolution condemning anti-Semitism which became a broader declaration against all forms of bigotry....

Within hours of vicious massacre, two mosques in Christ-church, New Zealand were the targets of an Islamophobia attack that killed at least 50 people and left over 40 wounded. Prime Minister Jacinda Andren described it as “an act of terrorist”....

 

It was military intervention on the part of France, Britain and the US that in 2011 succeeded in overthrowing Muammar Gaddafi who despite his eccentricities presided over a stable and prosperous nation whose nationals enjoyed a high standard of living....

 

This is not, however, a broad creeping liberalism; it is, more specifically, a creeping progressivist narrative – and it is changing the face of American Islamism. But is this genuine progressivism? ...
