The children of Muslims are just statistics, barely worth a mention as just victims of yet another drone attack, or as victims of Israel’s continous attacks on the beleagured citizens of Gaza. The pro-Israel lobbies and media have dehumanised Muslims, their deaths are mere statistics – and always without names.
But the big question everyone is asking is WHY? Why did a French citizen kill 3 soldiers and 4 civilians at point blank range? The answer in my opinion is because he was a criminal and a murderer and a very misguided human being. Mohammed Merah had a criminal record. He had already demonstrated that he had little sense of right or wrong. Allegedly, he raised thousands of Euros by hold-ups and break-ins, using the money to buy guns. Mohammed Merah clearly had a very chequered past and was certainly very far from practising any of the morals or principles of Islam or indeed of any religion. Mohammed Merah clearly had a very disturbed mind and wrongly thought that the only way that he could avenge the deaths of fellow Muslims was to take matters into his own hands. Why was that? The Israelis have some suggestions.
Today the Jerusalem Post ran an op-ed entitled “Western World is Blind”
Despite Muslim murderousness, West refrains from admitting Islam is the problemThere are many things wrong with this statement but let’s start with the fact that almost a quarter of the world’s population are Muslim, so if Islam is an evil ideology as is claimed, why are the majority of Muslims law-abiding citizens? The article goes on to talk about the Islamic terror industry, whatever that is, and who is making money from it? Unlike the giants of the arms trade industry who make millions on the weapons used to kill children in Muslim lands and who happily sell weapons to oppressive regimes to use against their own populations, there is no such thing as an Islamic terror industry.
At this time, almost any terror group on earth originates from the Muslim worldYes of course, and who does the labelling? You only have to look to Israel, the U.K. the U.S.A. the E.U. or N.A.T.O. - the biggest exporters of terror at state level and the ones who are always interferring in other nations politics by sponsoring and arming opposition groups or putting puppet leaders in place whilst labelling any locals who show resistance to their policies as terrorists.
I speak as one of perhaps 2 million Muslims in the U.K. and I have no reason to believe that France is any better. I know that Muslims feel there is no justice, not only here in the U.K. but for our brothers and sisters in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan who are being killed by Zionist and Neo Conservative policies of endless war. We are alarmed by Israel pushing for war in Iran and we are upset by the number of Syrians being killed every day in Syria, and we have little doubt that there is a lot of outside meddling in the Syrian state of affairs. Our so called leaders refuse to direct us in any coherent course of action that would allow us to feel that at least we were doing something, however little. Raising money in the mosques is not a solution we want an end to the killing and oppression and it is high time that our leaders stood up for Muslim interests in any and every legal way possible.
