Massacre of worshippers in New Zealand Mosques; Result of US-European-Israeli led global anti-Muslim campaign
The massacre of Muslims on Friday Jumma prayer at Al Noor and Linwood mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch is the continuation of the ongoing campaign demonizing Islam and killing Muslims worldwide under the US-European-Israeli New World Order.
According to reports at least 49 people were slaughtered and more are injured in the deadliest ever shootings in New Zealand on March 15, 2019.
The shooter posted a 16-minute livestream of the attack on the Deans Ave mosque. The graphic and disturbing footage was circulated online. The gunman also posted a lengthy manifesto on Twitter and the online forum 8chan shortly before the attack began. In the document, he repeatedly indulges Islamophobic tropes and frequently references white nationalist talking points.
The footage quickly spread on social media, and New Zealand officials said they were working to r remove the videos from the internet.
The shooter, Brenton Tarrant, identified himself as a 28-year-old national of Australia.
New Zealand has been one of the most peaceful countries in the world where no one could even imagine of such dastardly racist hate crime. However it had happened on the day when Israel unleashed its traditional barbarity on the Palestinians in Gaza – the largest open air prison in the world.
“I could never believe that something like this would happen in the city of Christchurch, but actually I would never believe that this would happen in New Zealand,” Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel said.
Irrespective of race, religion, color and language New Zealanders of all walks of life gathered to mourn the death.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was swift to respond, stating that her country utterly rejects and condemn those involved in the mosque attacks.
She said “It is clear that this can only be described as a terrorist attack appear to have been well planned. These are people of extremist views that have absolutely no place in New Zealand and in fact have no place in the world.
“Our thoughts and our prayers are with those who have been impacted today. Christchurch was their home. For many, this may not have been the place they were born, in fact for many, New Zealand was their choice,” she said.
The place they actively came to, and committed to. The place they were raising their families. Where they were parts of communities that they loved and who loved them in return. It was a place that many came to for its safety. A place where they were free to practice their culture and their religion.
We represent diversity, kindness, compassion. A home for those who share our values. Refuge for those who needs it. And those values will not and cannot be shaken by this attack. We are a proud nation of more than 200 ethnicities, 160 languages. And amongst that diversity we share common values. And the one that we place the currency on right now is our compassion and support for the community of those directly affected by this tragedy.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison characterized the shooter as an “extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist.”
C. J. Werleman, journalist, author and analyst on conflict, terrorism and the Middle East said; “today, pundits can say and write things about Muslims that would never be published by editors or executive producers. Whereas anti-Semitism, anti-black and anti-Asian racism are rightfully and routinely condemned, Islamophobia remains the only form of racism that remains within socially acceptable limits.”
Last week, for instance, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro suggested America’s first elected black Muslim congresswoman would not be loyal to the US constitution because she wears a hijab, invoking the anti-Semitic “dual loyalty” canard, a slur that would have seen her show pulled had she said similar about a kippah-wearing Jewish American politician.
For years, tabloid newspapers in New Zealand, Australia, Britain and the US have published a stream of inaccurate stories about Muslims, while also deploying sensationalized headlines, with one study finding British newspapers were pressured into correcting stories about Muslims more than 20 times in three-month period, and another revealing that crimes committed by Muslims received almost four times as much media coverage as crimes committed by all other groups.
Ultimately, Tarrant nurtured by a media that exploits the politics of hate and division. If the slaying of dozens of Muslims so close to home isn’t a warning that Islamophobia and the rise of white supremacy must be taken seriously, then what is?
This hatred is the outcome of the US-Israeli led global anti-Muslim campaign began in the aftermath of the collapse of former Soviet Union.
Invisible forces such as weapons manufacturers, oil companies and other corporate conglomerates which rule the West and thus the world, substituted the Red Communists with Islam and Muslims turning the focus of the world to their new “public enemy number one”.
The anti-Muslim campaign began in full swing after former US President George Bush, in collaboration with Israel’s secret service Mossad, bombed World Trade Centre and, according to reports, killed his own people, put the blame on Muslims to justify their subsequent invasions, destructions and the slaughter of Muslims
Bush exploited the shocked nation’s grief and sympathy to implement his pre-planned evil designs to topple regimes and install puppet leaders to redesign the Middle East to suit their agendas.
Therein began the well-planned and carefully orchestrated campaign against Islam and the dehumanisation of Muslims on a global scale to engineer conflicts and thrive on human misery. They dug up, one after the other, conflicts involving Muslims forgotten centuries ago to further their own ends.
These range from Bosnia, Kosovo, Somalia, Algeria, Chechnya, Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, the Central Asian Republics, Uihgur in China and in the Babri Masjid and Kashmir issues besides the Gujarat pogrom in India, Southern Thailand, genocide of Rohingya in Myanmar, the Philippines and many other areas. Muslims were killed in many countries purely because they were Muslims.
According to reports millions of innocent Muslim civilians were killed, around 55 million Muslims who lived in peace were driven to refugee camps to suffer in appalling conditions. By all means these were unprecedented genocides. War mongers’ media, integral part of their war machines, never highlight these crimes against humanity.
Muslims are helpless and voiceless as their countries were ruled by oppressive tyrants who collaborate with the US-Israeli war mongers in their campaign against Muslims to ensure their own political survival. Foremost among them were Saudi Arabia, UAE and Egypt who have become collaborators of US-Israeli led anti-Muslim campaigns and wars.
The war against terrorism, was so comprehensive that it strikes at the very root of political, military, economic, financial, social, religious and even cultural life of Muslims all over the world.
This hate campaign continues with greater intensity ever since the racist bigot Donald Trump was elected US President.
Due to this tirade all Muslim countries, individuals, Islamic banking and financial institutions, organisations – especially religious ones – and charities, mosques, religious schools and anything and everything related to Islam and Muslims have become objects of suspicion and hatred. Calls for the elimination of these Islamic Institutes are being echoed by the Western media, helping Christian Fundamentalist agenda to stem the spread of Islam in the US and Europe.
Today, Muslim men with beards and women with headscarves are afraid to move freely in many countries, especially in the West.
