Australian Zionist Islamophobe Rupert Murdoch has suggested that the Muslims as a whole should be held responsible for the terrorist attacks in France despite the fact that they had nothing to do with them.
Many others across the globe have pointed out that if that was true (which it isn’t) then all Australians should be held responsible for the controversial activities of Rupert Murdoch, such as the News of the World Phone Hacking Scandal.
These Kharijite terrorists kill more Muslims than they do anyone else. Are the thousands and thousands of Muslim victims of the crimes of Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram also to be held responsible for the actions of these terrorists?
Many have pointed out that on Rupert Murdoch’s “logic” all Muslims (including the terrorists themselves) should also be hailed and praised for the brave actions of heroic Muslim employee Lassana Bathily who saved the lives of dozens of people at the Kosher Supermarket by helping them hide and all Muslims (including the terrorists themselves) should be praised for the heroism of the Muslim police officer, Ahmed Merabit, who sacrificed his life in line of duty during the magazine attack. There is of course no logic at all to such an argument.
People are individuals, Muslims included, and no man should be held accountable for the crimes of anyone else, it is especially ridiculous that people should be held responsible for other unconnected people who would happily murder them just as they would murder anyone else.
A few years ago a Spiegel Online article titled “Al Qaeda Kills Eight Times More Muslims Than Non-Muslims” covered a study by the Combating Terrorism Center at the United States’ Military Academy at West Point which demonstrated that up to 99% of the “Muslim” terrorists victims were in fact non-Westerners and that of these the great majority were Muslim…that’s how things were then and things are no different now.
Rupert Murdoch and the other media Islamophobes know this, they ignore it because they are propagandizing against the Muslims in much the same way that the anti-Semitic anti Gypsy establishment used to propagandize against the Jews and Gypsies and where know where this sort of scapegoating can lead (death camps being one possible grand finale*).
Already it has created a situation where identifiably Muslim Western people face an ever present threat from Islamophobic bigots and thugs that limits their freedom of movement, security and a whole host of simple everyday choices in ways that people in non-minority social groups could not imagine.
(* a brief survey of relevant websites and chat-rooms has demonstrated to me that there is no shortage at all of murderous people who say that they would be very happy with a complete genocidal extermination of Muslims. Death camps for Muslims may seem unthinkable today, but so did the reign of French revolutionary terror shortly before it happened and in 1900 no one in the Poland would have believed that death camps would be built in Auschwitz and five other locations only a few decades later) ______________________________________________________________________________________________
In a similar vein Steve Emerson (the phony terrorist, “expert” of Fox News, which a subsidiary of 21st Century Fox of which Rupert ‘Sauron’ Murdoch just happens to be the CEO) has continued his long career of trying to ratchet up Islamophobic hate. This time by telling America that Britain’s second largest city, Birmingham, is “completely Muslim” and saying that there are “no go areas” for non-Muslims all over the place…
“In Britain, it’s not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in,” he said.
“Parts of London, there are actually Muslim religious police that actually beat and actually wound seriously anyone who doesn’t dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire,”
When Steve Emerson had tried to slip these, his latest, particular distortions of reality (distortion of reality to build up Islamophobia is basically his profession) he was used to the standard scenario where Western commentators can talk total nonsense about Muslims all day and get away with it. He did not consider that with this latest fabrication he would incur the wrath of the people of Birmingham and Britain as a whole for the crimes of insulting both reality and their civic pride.
Tory Prime Minister David Cameron described the moment he heard these Baron Munchhausen scale slurs as follows…
“Frankly I choked on my porridge and thought it must be April’s Fools Day. This guy (Steve Emerson) is clearly a complete idiot.”
Steve Emerson has been quick to recant his statements, but the fact remains that he has become economically rich from such distortions of reality and he usually he gets away with them, because his victims are Muslims who have generally learned to keep their heads down and their mouths shut.
…and as a final note on the scurrilous publication Charlie Hebdo which had been well on its way to bankruptcy (and was only selling around half of its 60,000 copy print run) before the slaughter… …it is now once again publishing cartoons that are purposely designed to offend, upset, irritate and infuriate Muslims – this time with hugely misplaced public good will and promises of government financial aide…
…proving for the umpteenth time that knee jerk reactions of people with low intelligence and little understanding of the religion only weaken the Muslims and benefit, empower and “justify” those who are already attacking them…
