What will it take for the people of the United States of America and their allies to understand that the words terrorist and terrorism are words used by their politicians to install fear in their own populations. A fear that will allow peaceful ordinary citizens to fear a group of people or a religious belief enough, that they will stand by and look the other way, or support crimes against humanity and mass murder in the name of survival, or the preservation of their way of life.
Hitler used the same tactics against the Jews of Europe. The world vowed never again, but the Muslims of the world now face the same type of genocide. The concentration camps/death camps are now called refugee camps. Instead of a quick death by firing squad, or in a gas chamber however the people are left to die generation after generation, from malnutrition, disease and broken hearts. The average waiting time in these death camps just to have your case for immigration to a western country heard by officials, is ten years. Some families have been waiting for over forty years, watching family and love ones die. What will it take for the people of the USA and its allies to understand that they are supporting genocide?
War is big business. The USA and its allies have come to rely on the profits of war to keep their economies and people working. Politicians of the Western Alliance much like Hitler have convinced their people that they must do what they do to keep their citizens and the rest of the world safe. Unfortunately, the citizens of the USA and their allies do not get, or do not care that what is happening against those of the Islamic faith has nothing to do with safety, or their safety, but is being done for the love of money and power.
If the definition of a terrorist is:
- a person who uses terrorism in the pursuit of political aims;
- a person, usually a member of a group, who uses or advocates terrorism.
If these definitions are true, then how can the USA and its allies not be considered terrorists committing acts of terrorism?
What will it take and how many of their citizens must die, before the USA and its allies get it…nuclear missiles, nuclear defense systems, navies, air forces and armies armed with the most modern and deadly weapons will not keep their people safe from the relatives, friends and leaders of those they kill in sovereign Islamic states? Those forced into mass migration and left in refugee/death camps to die have families who are citizens of the USA and in the USA’s Western Alliance, and they are not happy with the treatment of their loved ones. There is no amount of pro patriotic rhetoric that will convince a family member that it is okay for the government to be a part of the mass murder of their loved one’s in other countries.
Everyone asks where do home-grown terrorists come from? Why do they seek to bite the hand that feeds them? Non-Muslim American citizens and their allies should ask themselves what would they would do if it was their family and loved ones who were the recipients of such hatred, persecution, oppression and mass murder? What would they do, if they were met with accusations of non-patriotism, mistrust and threats of jail, or deportation, when they protested what was happening to their loved ones? What would they do if going to fight for their loved ones was deem illegal?
Ideology cannot be killed with political rhetoric of your own, guns, bombs, starvation, or deprivation. The only weapon that will work against ideology is proving that it has no basis in fact.
Tougher immigration laws that target certain nations, or people based on race or religion, only serve to:
- help to alienate already marginalized visual and religious minorities;
- radicalize Muslim or other visual and religious minorities through unfair isolation and the promote the idea that there is something inherently and systemically evil with those the tougher immigration laws unfairly target;
- make it easier for agents of radicalization to radicalize visual and religious minority citizens of the USA and their allies.
How many innocent people must die on the street by car attack, and other random acts of violence by those authorities call home-grown terrorists before the Americans and their allies understand that those who live by the sword will die by the sword? When people are willing to kill themselves to stop you from hurting them, no amount of superior weaponry, or political rhetoric will keep them from avenging their dead and dying.
Up to now the politicians, law enforcement, news media and ordinary people of the United States and its allies seem content to delude themselves that they and those acting in their behalf are somehow making the world a safer and better place. All I can see from the news is that the USA and its allies have destabilized the world and brought the wars that they got involved in or started in foreign lands back to their home soil.
I do not believe that the citizens of the USA and their allies feel safe in their beds, walking in the street, or anything else they used to take for granted…do you? If the citizens of the USA and their allies do not feel safe going about their daily lives in their own countries… what a price they and the world have been made to pay, so that the top one percent of the world’s population can make more money in order to buy more influence and power.
Think about this: According to one estimate, from 1956 to 2016, a total of forty-three genocides have taken place which caused the death of about 50 million people, while an additional 50 million were resettled or displaced by such conflicts.
THE CRIME OF GENOCIDE
On December 9, 1948 the United Nations approved the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. This convention establishes “genocide” as an international crime, which signatory nations “undertake to prevent and punish.” It defines genocide as:
Genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
- Killing members of the group;
- Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
- Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
- Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
- Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
- What role has the USA and their allies really played in the conflicts being deemed as acts of genocide?
- Did companies in the USA and their allies make a profit from selling weapons, defense systems, or other forms of support to either side of the conflict?
- How many more innocent people need to die before the senseless killing stops?
