Who Are The Real Terrorists?

Recommended Posts

I have read with great interest the various posts here and elsewhere on the subject of "terrorism".


Islam condemns any acts of "terrorism" against innocent people. Islam is

completely against taking one's own life. So-called "suicide attacks" are

therefore against Islamic teachings. Islam does not propagate tit-for-tat

retaliation even against attacks on innocent Muslims.


The reality of the situation is that more innocent Muslims have died and

suffered at the hands of the Americans and their allies than the 6,000 odd

Americans (and others) in the WTC attacks. But who cares? They're only



It does not matter that millions of Afghans may be killed or become homeless, they're only Muslims, but America must have its revenge.


Notwithstanding that oppressive "Muslim" governments may agree with and even support such unwarranted action, does America expect Muslims to stand idly and watch this happen? Or perhaps this is deliberate provoction?


Tens of thousands of innocent Palestinians, even babies and children, have been killed, massacred and driven from their homes by an israeli regime that is supported, funded and armed by America and many more still live in fear everyday as they have for the last 50 years. Hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians have been killed directly in American air raid attacks or have died or suffered from malnutrition and other diseases and deprivation as a result of previous American-led sanctions and now of course in the so-called "war". But who cares? They're only Muslims.


Maybe it is precisely because they are Muslims and perhaps the goal is to wipe out the Islamic "menace" which threatens American liberty and freedom, especially the freedom to viciously and violently interfere in other people's lives and affairs.


The reality is that the so-called "Islamic" terrorists (the worst of who were in fact funded and equipped by the CIA) who are reacting in

frustration (even if wrongly) to these and thousands of others acts of

oppression committed by America and its allies against Muslims are in no

position to commit acts of violence on the scale that America and its allies

can and have.


The further reality is that it is America and its voracious business interests

backed by its ultra-violent military might that have been and are the greatest threat to world peace than the frustrated actions of any purported terrorists.


America is the greatest terrorist nation of all time and will probably remain

so for a long time to come.


Ponder this:


"The United States spends more on arms annually, $275 billion presently, than the rest of the Security Council combined. U.S. arms expenditures are approximately 25 times the gross national product of Iraq. The U.S. has in its stockpiles more nuclear bombs, chemical and biological weapons, more aircraft, rockets and delivery systems in number and sophistication than the rest of the world combined. Included are twenty commissioned Trident II nuclear submarines any one of which could destroy Europe."

Unless America stops or is stopped, the backlash against its foreign policies, excursions, incursions and attacks as well as active support for oppression of all kinds around the world will result in an ever-increasing vicious cycle of violence that will affect innocent civilians of all nationalities and religions.


Unfortunately, the way America and its media have played this deadly game now threatens to turn it all into a conflict of Western versus Islamic

civilisation, which it is not and should not be.






"The fact that some elements (of the U.S. government) may appear to be

potentially "out of control" can be beneficial to creating and reinforcing

fears and doubts within the minds of an adversary's decision makers...


"That the U.S. may become irrational and vindictive if its vital interests are

attacked should be a part of the national persona we project to all

adversaries... It hurts to portray ourselves as too fully rational and
