All Muslims Are Terrorist!
New york,September ninth 2001, thousands of people are dead due to Hijacked
Airplanes crashing into the twin towers and the pentagon.
Massachusetts, April the fifteenth, Foreign-born Muslims describing themselves as
'very religious' detonate two bombs packed with ball bearings at the Boston Marathon, killing three people and causing several more to lose limbs.
In February the third 2014, the Islamic state separates from al Qaeda, creating a new form of terrorism. in the past 20 years, 90% of all terrorist attacks are made by people who claim that they are following the religion of Islam. Is it justified for us to generalize over 1.4 billion muslims because of some minorities acts? or we should throw away these stereotypes that are destroying our nation, and stop being ignorant about everything that happens just because we don’t accept any truth and facts?
There are over 1.4 billion Muslims in this world, and they are normal people just like everyone else. Is it reasonable to call them all terrorist? Is it the truth? or we are just being ignorant?
First of all, let’s start with explaining how terrorists (or at least the modern terrorists) gets created. When you invade people country, and you enter their houses, and kills
their beloved ones, and you destroy their houses and property, leaving them without any roof over their head or any hope or reason to live by; you just created a person that is willing to do whatever it takes to destroy the people who did this to him, and is committed to a just cause. He will try to take revenge, and he will do anything in order to do so.
We all know that Al Qaeda is the result of US actions in the middle east, and trying to corrupt and control the countries over there for their own benefits. while 9/11 was a crime and absolutely unjustified, Susan Sontag was blasted for pointing out that “this was not a ‘cowardly’ attack on ‘civilization’ or ‘liberty’ or ‘humanity’ or ‘the free world’ but an attack on the world’s self-proclaimed super-power, undertaken as a consequence of specific American alliances and actions.”.
And while we are in a time that is considered a “ terrorist endangered” era, people seem to have forgotten that ISIS evolved from Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), which in turn was formed in response to the US-led invasion in 2003. The power vacuum and propaganda which portrayed the war as an assault on Muslims and/or a modern day "Crusade" led to the rise of Islamic extremists groups in Iraq.
There were some former Ba'ath party members that joined AQI/ ISIS, but only out of desperation and the fact that they shared a common enemy. Ideologically, ISIS and AQI are almost the polar opposite of Ba'athism. So terrorism is nothing but another definition for a punch of failed plans that the people who wanted to create those wars and sell weapons made not caring about humanity and what are the consequences of their actions might harm the people around them. And although their are many other
intelligent people spoke about the danger of military-industrial, I always like to quote the man who made the first warning about them “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” US President
Dwight D. Eisenhower
But one must argue : why not every country in the world produced terrorist after it got invaded by another country? and why only Muslim countries, or countries that has a high percentage of Islam in them are the countries that are troubling the world with their terrorism? And while it is a valid question(if you are 10 years old ), you can’t just say “muslims” like…
