Christchurch Massacre & The White Supremacist Rampage

By Nishthar Idroos

Nishthar Idroos

Multiple shootings and multiple fatalities, this is how many of the initial breaking news captions emerged. An unprecedented shooting spree at two mosques in the city of Christchurch in New Zealand. “One of New Zealand’s darkest days” said New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. She also described the attack as an “unprecedented act of violence.” Friday’s Christchurch terrorist attack killed at least 49 Muslims worshippers. 

Since this dastardly incident took place the Prime Minister of New Zealand has been on her toes and she seems to be a person genuinely devastated. In her initial press statement she said: “Many of those directly affected may be migrants to New Zealand. They may even be refugees here. They have chosen to make New Zealand their home, and it is their home. They are us.”

The shooter Brenton Tarrant a self-professed white supremacist, notably the second to derive ostensible inspiration from the toxic rhetoric of President Donald J Trump’s pernicious demagoguery, cross sections of the far right seem to thrive on what’s emanating from Trump Inc. The first being Alexandre Bissonnette in Quebec City Canada. In his case the sentencing Judge called Alexandre Bissonnette’s attack an ‘unspeakable tragedy’ that ‘tore apart our social fabric’. 

Brenton Tarrant had strapped a camera on his head and was live-streaming his brutal slaughter. An innovative way to spread far and wide the macabre in a technologically well connected epoch. Also in a 74-page manifesto he wanted “to show the invaders that our lands will never be their lands” Our lands? Who were the natives of Australia? Who were the natives of New Zealand? Who were the natives of Canada? And most importantly who were the natives of the so called United States of America? Was it white people? Then who is the invader???

What an imbecile? What stupendous ignorance? No wonder he’s such a studious disciple of Donald J Trump. Similar language articulated by the man who killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh last October. At this rate come 2020 for Donald J Trump’s re-election there could certainly be God forbid a couple of blood baths. Trump is certainly highly adept political leader well immersed in the unorthodox. Gifted with the ability to arouse emotions, passions, and prejudices of the people.

In his sensational manifesto Brenton is supposed to have stated that he decided to give a future for his people. He describes his people as ethnically and culturally European. And he was determined to preserve and protect the European identity from multi-culturalism. He also lists the declining birth rates of the whites and strikes a foreboding of what could happen to the white race. 

What a load of crap? This can only come from a terrorist. Someone bereft of a sound education and possibly dysfunctional. Unfortunately many politicians the world over toe this dangerous line to further their political agenda. This allegation of disproportionate breeding levelled at Muslims is in essence a huge embarrassment to the non-Muslim world. Let’s face it.

Something quite important that has to be discussed and openly too. This has been going on for some time now. Muslims cannot show Europeans how to increase their numbers. This is ridiculous and as stated becoming increasingly embarrassing. The only sensible advice this writer could afford is to stick to the natural man and women relationship strictly and with the idea of procreation. No other way will increase numbers, plain and simple.

Since this terrorist has opened a can of worms let’s go back in history and see firsthand the terrorism unleashed by the white man. The time has come to talk about this openly. What actual terrorists did? How they got their hands stained with blood after “completing the job” 

Who are the natives of Australia? Indigenous Australians are the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia. They are the natives of Australia. They descended from groups that existed in Australia and surrounding islands before British colonization. So who invaded these people? Isn’t it the white man who did it?

Who are the natives of New Zealand? The Maori are the native or indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand (Aotearoa – The Long White Cloud). They arrived in New Zealand from eastern Polynesia in several waves at some time before 1300 CE. So who invaded these people?  Isn’t it the white man who did it?

Who are the natives of Canada? In Canada the First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples are the natives. The original inhabitants of the land that is now known as Canada. So who invaded these people? Isn’t it the white man who did it?

Who are the natives of United States of America? The list is endless. Some of the  notable indigenous peoples of the Americas are the  Yupik peoples, Aleut people, Alaskan Natives, Native Americans, First Nations, Métis, Indigenous Mexicans, the Caribbean, Central America,  Arikara, North American Plains Indians of the Caddoan, Cherokee, North American Indians of Iroquoian lineage who constituted one of the largest politically integrated tribes at the time of European colonization. Pawnee, Sioux, Apache, Eskimo, Comanche. So who invaded these people? Isn’t it the white man who did it?

From the time Europeans  invader arrived on American shores, the frontier- the edge territory between white man’s civilization and the untamed natural world – became a shared space of vast, clashing differences that led the U.S. government to authorize over 1,500 wars, attacks and raids on Indians, most of any country in the world against its indigenous people. This is the egregious legacy of the white man.

By the close of the Indian Wars in the late 19th century, fewer than 238,000 indigenous people remained, a sharp decline from the estimated 5 million to 15 million living in North America when Columbus arrived in 1492. This is the horror, the sheer horror the white man instigated. This is well planned and well executed ethnic cleansing. And what the European invaders did to changing their natural way of life is another topic by itself.

On a side note what jolted this writer was the name of the city in which this brutal massacre took place, Christchurch? A city, a cathedral distinctly associated with Christianity and more importantly Jesus son of Mary – (prince of peace). Christ an important term in the Christian vocabulary, references to “most holy” “anointed” “messiah”.  

Yet those worshipping their Lord, The Lord of Jesus son of Mary and the many hundreds of Prophets and Messengers sent to this world to Proclaim His Oneness were senselessly and mercilessly butchered. The irony is quite puzzling and incomprehensible. 

History has it that the name “Christchurch” was chosen in deference to the Canterbury Cathedral. Most New Zealanders still recognize Christchurch as the Cathedral City. This act of savagery therefore an insult on the prophet of Islam Jesus son of Mary. Also unfortunately contributes to the never to be erased and negative immortalization of the incident and the city.

Clearly today one is confronted with many a distressing dilemma, negotiating, understanding outrageous ironies associated and  stemming from benign names given to cities, countries  etc. Acts committed in them quite inappropriate to the name. One such example is the country of Israel which no doubt is notorious for its senseless killings of the Palestinians. The term Israel is genial and benignant as it refers to a prophet and a tribe near and dear to Jews, Christians and Muslims.

Yet deception, invasion, extermination of the natives and their lands with the full support of European colonial masters have given an extremely bad name to these prophets and messengers sent by God.

Prophet Jacob (Yakoob in Arabic) also known as Israel, one of a patriarchal line of prophets sent by God. When news headlines reads like this “Israel intentionally shoots and kills children” little do they realize the insults, irreparable damage they heap on another deeply loved prophet of Islam? Prophet Jacob, father of twelve sons and their dynasties later became known as the 12 tribes of Israel. 

The historical blood-soaked trail and encroachments of the white man cannot be erased. Their tacit support for the unsettling hemorrhage in Palestine cannot be hidden either. These are the very people God speaks about in the final revelation “And when it is said to them: “Make not mischief on earth,” they say: “We are only peacemakers.” (Al Quran 2:11)

    New Zealand is not a typical racist country. This distarly act was an attempt to promote it Next to Old Germany. PM was wearing scarf in public meeting to soften the damage. Locally this may hurt her next election. When Lincoln was conducting the Civil War, he did know that will hurt his election. But he won the election.

      Where were you when Islamic racist terrorists killed innocent people in several such incidents all over the world. For you to condemn only one act and not others shows your partiality. It is a well known fact that a Muslim will never voice against crime committed by a Muslim on a non Muslim, in fact he will condone it as a just action. This is the sad state of Islam which is guided by Koran which instigates Muslims to kill non Muslims and destroy their places of worship. Is the incident in New Zealand is the only crime and not killing of Christians inside a church during Christmas mass in Egypt not a crime. Murder of non Muslims inside their places of worship is a common occurrence in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Thailand and Philippines. Problem with Muslims is that they go by teaching of Koran which says that non believers are infidels, and get into trouble with non Muslims. You must come out of your Islamic bigotry and learn to treat all as equals to prevent anger of non Muslims on you.

        This is the sad state of Islam which is guided by Koran which instigates Muslims to kill non Muslims and destroy their places of worship.////

        Mahatma Gandhi, statement published in “Young India”, 1924:

        “I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind… I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the second volume (of the Prophet’s biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of that great life.”

      Thanks for the article. Yes, they all are terrorists.

      Yes, this is a White Supremacist Rampage. The Muslims have made themselves into targets for such rampages by the Jihadis, Islamists, Wahhabi-Salafies and their clones such as ISIS, Boko Haram etc. In the absence of Muslims, the white Supremists would have attacked other non-white communities, as it happens on an intermittent basis in the US.

      So, this attack was primarily racists, and secondarily anti0slamicm as a response to the terrorism perpetrated by the Jihadis, Islamists, Wahhabi-Salafies and their clones.

      Looks like somebody did not get a chance to tell Para- Brenton Tarrant a self-professed white supremacist, that he is a Para in Australia and New Zealand. This is a common problem with the Paras, whether in Australia, New Zealand, USA or Sri Lanka.

      Atrocities by the Wahhabi Salafies who follow Satan, per Haadith of Najd, against other Muslims.

      Approximately 12,000 Wahhabis from Najd attacked the city of Karbala.[5]:387 The attack coincided with the anniversaryof Ghadir Khum event, or 10th Muharram.

    He is a TERRORIST WHITE SUPREMACIST. HE KILLED INNOCENT PEOPLE FOR A POLITICAL CAUSE. THAT IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF A TERRORIST. He considered war criminal Radovan Karadicz to be a hero! Sick Sick Sick.
    But I am afraid we will see more of this plus more of the Islamist Radical terrorist attacks in the west too. Mr. Idroos, please please condemn those when they happen too.
    I will like you to take a common position on terrorism everywhere. I posted this same post above to share with my mostly white, mostly conservative students to provoke a discussion here in the US. Their silence is so disappointing because all of them condemn islamic terrorism in the west when it happens but not this time. So disappointed.
    I am so glad to hear the Prime ministers of New Zealand and Australia calling it that; exactly that. But not Trump, who tweets frantically every time a jihadi terrorist attacks, be it in Europe or elsewhere. He didn’t have the strength of character to call it for what it is: A TERRORIST act.
    This murderer is a Terrorist just like the White Anti-semitic man who shot up the synagogue, and a redneck white demented man who wanted to start a race war by shooting innocent black people in a church in Charleston, or the military officer who planned to kill fellow Americans, or the deranged hatefilled Jihadi man, son of immigrants, Omar Mateen, who killed people in the nightclub in Orlando or the demented Pakistani couple in San Bernadino California who killed 14. That woman got a fiancee visa just by befriending her radicalized hatefilled husband online. US and other western nations need to put a stop to such visas without scrutinizing their backgrounds more. They killed 14.

    You cite the Quran at the end. Beautiful. I will like to see you writing about the mass number of attacks in Europe and even some in t he US by Jihadis who claim they are doing it for their religion. Your article is interesting and fact based on the history of western nations. But that is not relevant to the present. I wish you would condemn the terrorist attacks by Jihadis too. Please note, this heinous attack is wrong and the PM of New Zealand was right. She said this demented savage attacked people because of the very nature of New Zealand being one of the most peaceful western christian nations where everyone is welcome. Thank you for your write up. Please make sure you write about the jihadi terrorist attacks in open western societies too. I wish NZ had a death penalty like the US for such criminals. It does not. He deserves it.

      Mano Ratwatte,

      There are 114 Chapters in the Quran. The Chapters and verses from the Meccan period were very peaceful, very similar to the New Testament with no violence.
      This is what generally the Sufis and peaceful Muslims follow, with the love of God.

      The Chapters and verses from the Medina period, are about survival, defense and attacking the enemies who tried to annihilate the Muslims. However, there rules there.

      The Wahhabi Sakafies, their clones, and Jihadis follow the Medina Quran, or rather distortions
      of it, to meet their political Islamist agenda.

      Many Muslims and non-Muslims are confused on this issue. So, the peace loving Muslims Quote the Meccan verses, and the Jihadis and the Terrotists quote the Medina Verses.

      Two different syllabuses.

        Base born paraya Mohammedan Amarasiri If your so called Quran is the revelation of your Almighty called Allah, Why can He or She Or It not correct it.????? You Muslims believe He or She or It has super power to do anything . If it is so, correction should have come via somebody like your first man so called Adam was lowered down to earth by his or her or its so called cairn power with correct version of your so called holy Quran. Thing like that is not taking place. What does that mean ??????????? you all are believing something which is not in existence at all ????? is it correct or wrong ???????????

          You certainly have a Para low IQ comprehension problem, with its inability to understand why various groups and sects behave. You certainly are representative of the low Para grass eaters, who believe everything in the Mahawamsa as fact, and believes that the Sun goes around the Earth.

          Today, is Full Moon Day, the Poya Day. On this day, the devotees who are steadfast in their beliefs, go to Temples and meditate, while the Para-Lunatics like you get confused , and claim all sorts of things.

          Why not for change keep eating the grass on Full Moon Days as well.

    To show white supremacism, the misbelief that White people are superior to the people of other races, this coward gunned down unarmed, innocent easy targets in their places of worship – Is there a better way to insult the white supremacism?

    Whoever, accepts, applauds this cowardice accepts submissiveness to ideology, white supremacism.

      To show Islamic supremacism, the misbelief that Muslims are superior to the people of other religions, Muslim cowards have gunned down unarmed, innocent easy targets in their places of worship – Is there a better way to insult the Islamic racism.

      Whoever accepts, applauds or even turns a blind eye to these cowardice acts of Islamic terrorists, is submissive to the ideology of Islamic racism.

      Biggest culprit is the Koran which preaches supremacism by saying non believers are infidels and instigates Muslims to resort to violence against non Muslims.

    Violence should be rejected universally irrespective of religion.
    Trump should not be blamed for every thing that happens (Is Trump a prophet?)
    All these other matters relating religions does not hold water
    These sort of acts should be prevented and maximum steps under the prevailing law of the land should be exercised, if necessary new laws should be enacted.

    Dear Nishthar Idroos, you have taken so much trouble to list the atrocities committed by Europeans to native population in various countries and usurping their land. Do you sincerely believe that they are the only people to do so and no one else. If so this shows your partiality in exposing the truth. I will give below how non whites have behaved in usurping lands of the natives :
    1. Egypt – Original people are Coptics with a glorious civilization including the pyramids. They have been driven to the south and their lands appropriated by Arabs.
    2. Iraq – Original people who are heir to Mesopotamian civilization are Sumerians. They have been murdered and driven out and their lands appropriated by Arabs.
    3. Syria – Original people are Assyrians who were driven out and their lands appropriated by Arabs.
    4. Lebanon – Original people are Canonites who are living as refugees in other countries in middle east after being driven out and their lands appropriated by Arabs.
    5. Iran – Original people of southern Iran are Elamites who have been ethnically cleansed and their lands appropriated by Persians.
    6. Pakistan – Original people of Indus valley are Dravidians who have been driven out, their ancient monuments destroyed and their lands appropriated by Pakistanis.
    7. Malaysia – Original people of peninsular Malaysia are Orang Asli who are dark skinned people genetically similar to native people of Andaman Island, whose lands have been appropriated by Malays who are immigrants from surrounding archipelago.
    8. Indonesia – Original people of Papua New Guinea are dark skinned people of African origin, who have been displaced to eastern parts and their lands appropriated by Indonesians.
    Unfortunately for you all these perpetrators of crimes are Muslims and you are silent about them.

        Muhandiram you are rushing to defend because of your bigoted mind. I have also referred to specific situations where Muslim supremacists also claim that all lands appropriated by them belong to them. Whether one set foot 200 years or 1000 years ago, the crime is the same, by applying the rule equally. Don’t forget that.

          As for your claim:

            Muhandiram, you have no courage to write in your own name. You do not seem to understand English as I have given above specific situations where Muslims are claiming that the lands appropriated by them as theirs. Do you say that Arabs, Pakistanis, Persians or Malays are not saying that those lands do not belong to them. Before accusing foreigners look inside Sri Lanka where Muslims have appropriated lands belonging to Veddhas and claim it as theirs. There is no point in wasting time on people like you who are not willing to accept truth.

              If you are referring to your comment of the 19th, you have mentioned 8 instances of land appropriations. For the first 4, you place the responsibility on the Arabs. For the next 4, you mention the Persians, Pakistanis, Malays and Indonesians. From where did the Muslims come?

              And, wonder of wonders, you have claimed that the Indonesians appropriated the land of Papua New Guinea which is an independent country, Port Morseby being its capital. And, it got its independence from Australia, for your information.

              And, finally comes your masterpiece, when you claim that “Muslims have appropriated lands belonging to Veddhas and claim it as theirs”!!

              I must say this for you, Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam,
              .
              Although you are an intelligent man, it is often your emotions that decide what you write.
              .
              You used to have lots of prejudices. Do you remember the days when you used to call me a racist, and owing to your snobbery (related to your having studied at Royal College, Colombo 7), you used to scoff at a villager like me because I had “no International experience”, although I have worked abroad for seven years. But all of that had been in Asia. I’ve never been to your prestigious “white countries”.
              .
              You have now got over most of those prejudices – never an easy thing. You are now a more honest and rational man who is willing to grant that even Sinhalese villagers like me have some decent impulses.
              .
              I know that I have my own faults, of course.
              .
              We are now discussing something very tragic – what happened in Christchurch. We obviously denounce all that happened there. But don’t you think, Mr Nishthar Idroos, that with all your knowledge, and your ability to write eloquent English, you ought to ponder on this? Why can’t you Muslim men adjust a bit? Can’t you reform MMDA? Can’t you co-operate with non-Muslims? Can’t you be a little less provocative, whilst holding on to your identity?
              .
              Please see how this old Tamil man drawing possibly his last breath, has been so much more constructive:
              .

              .
              I hope you take a quick look there.
