Are Muslims Terrorists?
Ever since the WTC twin towers were brought down by suspected al-Qaida attackers on 9/11 the whole world began to believe Muslim is another name of terrorist. Actually it was the media – print, audio and visual – which are mostly in the hands of imperialist syndicates that broadly convinced the people around the world with their effectively ‘manufactured consent’. The media now is a factory spreading its tentacles every nook and corner of the world that manufactures consent of the people what it wants them to believe. It is famously called ‘manufacturing consent’. ‘Clash of Civilizations’ thesis might be the ideological mother for manufacturing consent.
Strategic Spot in Imperialist design
Aggressive activism of Muslim fundamentalism can be traced back to the installation of the ‘Jewish State’ amid oil-rich Arab countries of the Middle-East. The Jewish state of Israel was placed on Palestinians' land by the British imperialists and their western friends with a view to ‘divide and rule. It was done so on the pretext that Jews were abandoned and hunted down during WW-II by Hitler and his likes. If that should be the case, Jews should have been placed in Europe or North America. Why Palestine? Because it is the most important strategic point from where all oil rich Arab countries can be monitored. It was an ‘imperialist design’.
Later in the 1967 Arab war, Israel occupied much of the remaining Palestinians' land and further distanced them from their mother land making them permanent refugees in neighboring countries. This has been the historic source for the Muslim fundamentalist activism. Now Palestinians are denied their fundamental rights in their own land. They have no right on their water resources. They are dependent on the mercy of Israelis to get even drinking water. Mineral rich land is under Israelis. Water sources are controlled by Israelis. Historical places are controlled by Israelis. And Palestinians are refugees on their own land. How pathetic.
