By Nishthar Idroos –
A terminally ill patient with tissue infestations and a multitude of larvae spreading endlessly from a gnarled body is a pathological conundrum. The bizarre metaphor apt and demonstrative of the contemporary carnage and ensuing mayhem unleashed by the so called ISIS in collaboration with nameless, faceless outfits ably sustaining them. All of this done in the name of Islam. Obviously a good reason why sincere Muslims would seriously want to know why violence is attributed to a religion that promotes peace and was revealed to all mankind.
The menacing Jihadi John in jet black garb and in a mask front of a camera supposedly threatening to slit the throat of a purported victim. These are one of many pictures the public had seen and perhaps believed. A region that had relative peace only a decade ago destroyed beyond recognition by the most feared weapon today – American democracy.
Gruesome killings via explosions with ghastly trails of human body parts and blood. These incidents so common place even today long after George Walker Bush had guests from a celestial body in his dream and hand over a special message.
I’ve heard and read experts opine whether this is deliberate policy to depopulate a people? Four simple English letters that had stirred horror worldwide. Now Sri Lanka comes under paranoiac surveillance. A sensational proclamation by a prominent Cabinet Minister in the august assembly stirring passions. Flatly refuted in its own corridors by an equal strongman. Luscious and rib-tickling material for the inimitable Bandu Samarasinghe and Tennyson Coorey comedy duo to work on their next political satire. For the moment the saga continues to mutate.
It seems the occult Wahhabi has once again reemerged. Services of the spellbinder is sought to accomplish media objectives. The spellbinder would with powers vested in him and aided by supporters and sponsors would strive to create the uncertain and foreboding milieu. Forces would then coalesce. In due course the negative message would spread. Sri Lankans would get anxious, alarmed and afraid.
Gonibillah Wahhabi is here. A narrative similar to the infamous grease yaka. A deceptive yet practical tool perfected by Uncle Sam with a well spruced lithographed user manual now available in many languages. (Apologies to the great if not one of the foremost and greatest scholars of Islam Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab – a much maligned Islamic scholar (May Allah have mercy on him). The payoff follows “Desperate ISIS Wahhabi’s impatient to make love to virgins in Paradise prefer a quick martyrdom”
The all too excruciatingly familiar caricature hugely weakened by incessant repetition and stereotyping courtesy of news stations like FOX, CNN, BBC along with their local and regional counterparts. Appalling adherence to sophomoric scaremongering and courtship with the absurdist theatre. I believe the west and their allies must strive for greater originality in the future.
I am on record having categorically stated on a previous piece, if in fact Al Qaeda and ISIS had a Wahhabi influence half of United States would be Muslims today. Additionally the proselytized reverts would wage war with the rest of the Muslims on the Trinity doctrine, anathema to absolute monotheism postulated in Islam and ably corroborated in the sublime and authentic teachings of the illustrious scholar Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab (May Allah have mercy on him).
President-elect Donald Trump described President Barack Obama openly and unambiguously as the “the founder of ISIS” and Hillary Clinton as its “co-founder” during heightened electioneering which came to an anticlimactic finish. Mr. Trump then repeated this claim even more emphatically. This is unprecedented. None in world history had flung such incendiary accusations to a sitting President and his Secretary of State. Personally the loaded proclamation was tantamount to a thousand 9/11s if not worse. Western media chose to ignore the whole episode.
I sincerely hope the international community would take cognizance of what President-elect Donald J Trump said about President Obama and Secretary Clinton. This goes to the Sri Lankan Minister of Justice the right honorable Wijedasa Rajapaksa PC as well. It was quite disquieting to hear a responsible Minister say what he said in the Sri Lankan Parliament recently. His speech insensitive, insulting and obviously ill-researched. Like magicians taking all kinds of things from various places politicians have now learnt to drop bombshells and wait in anticipation for a backlash.
Is this a joke? On whom is the joke on? I wish to draw the attention of all discerning Muslims. This is happening as often and getting more predictable. Sri Lankan Muslims unanimously agree that if prima facie evidence is found against anyone regarding extremism the full strength of the law needs to be applied.
The ongoing machinations an integral part of the continuing humiliation of Muslims world over. Debilitating weakness had befallen the Muslim nation in all corners of the world, as being a result of inclination to this world, love of it, and being preoccupied with it, whilst turning away from the Hereafter. The enemies of Islam attentively observe the Muslim nation and study their condition, when they see a weakness they strike at it and if they see a barrier, they destroy it. They’ve installed malleable leaders who tow their line with alacrity.
Muslim lands possess many riches, being sources of goods and blessings. This is why the enemies of Allah device crafty methodology to conquer them. The Muslim nation has reached a level where it cannot defend its honor, riches nor wealth from its conquering enemies. In this backdrop concocting cock and bull stories about ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Taliban is as easy as A, B C with the media Eveready to chip in.
Sri Lankan Muslims paid dearly for peace especially those living in the North and East. They stood shoulder to shoulder with the majority during trying times. Even in a global context Muslims exploited and taken advantage of by far-right political agenda to deflect attention from more pressing woes affecting the nation. What appetizing forage for the extreme right.
A pertinent question? Are Americans so dumb? It’s alleged that Donald Trump had apparently told People magazine in 1998 that if he ever ran for president, he’d do it as a Republican because “they’re the dumbest group of voters in the country” and that he “could lie and they’d still eat it up”? I am not surprised at all.
The much respected political research website Globalresearch.ca / globalresearch.org has made some very scary and startling revelations. I sincerely hope concerned officials would care to read these sensational findings. This is very important. These are not findings of a Muslim or Muslims led organization. It states – “Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region. The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history. The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms: on one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool; on the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union”
“The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom recently remarked, “By any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism. In 1978-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the U.S. would be in violation.” “During the 1970′s the CIA used the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as a barrier, both to thwart Soviet expansion and prevent the spread of Marxist ideology among the Arab masses. The United States also openly supported Sarekat Islam against Sukarno in Indonesia, and supported the Jamaat-e-Islami against Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in Pakistan. Last but certainly not least, there is Al Qaeda”
“Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980′s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA.
Many reading this piece may dismiss the above findings that would in no way dent the integrity or credibility of the research organization or its research. Islam – the salvation of humanity, now at the receiving end due to actions of an over-zealous breed of impetuous kids coming from all corners of the globe, supple and malleable wanting to brandish diabolical weapons even before they could understand who is Allah, what is Islam and the teachings of the final Messenger Muhammad (may Allah exalt his mention).
Though Muslims the world over by consensus have enough and more evidence to prove that they are innocent of all what is attributed to them they still must strive to put their household in order first.
As long as the Muslim youth fail to acquire sound Islamic knowledge and continue regardless on the path of extremism they’ll be hunted down. Not only will they be hunted down but false flag operations will be carried out in their names and blamed on them. Contemporary history will continue to repeat itself.
To be continued...
