Duplicity
 

 

Anti-terrorism seems to be targeting jihad as individuals and independent groups rather than as being an organized system with independent institutions, each standing on its own, and recognized by their supportive governments as legitimate. In doing so, the West is chasing a shadow rather than aiming at a tangible target. The key issue here is the Source; it needs to be halted. It is the root cause (Hiro, 1988: p 137; Pryce-Jones, 1989: p 277; Aburish, 1995: pp 115, 137, 145).

Take for instance Nigeria, the Sudan and Algeria and to a lesser degree the militants in Egypt and Pakistan. You no longer hear of the Biafran Christians, seldom of the Sudanese Christians and never of the Algerian Berber Christians. They are all being systematically terrorized into submission to Islam and the Arabic language. In Southern Sudan, the central government destroys total villages of the Christians, cuts off water supplies, poisons their water wells and denies them access to food. The central government controls the distribution of food, using food handouts as the stick-and-carrot policy to follow at the heels of their Muslim masters.

There are over eight million Christian Copts in Egypt and over two million Christian Assyrians in Iraq and the neighbouring countries and more in Diaspora. Islamic governments deprive them of their basic human rights. Over 25 percent of the total population of the Sudan is Christian and other religions, while 45 per cent of the people of Nigeria are Christian.

The civilized world through its multinationals and so-called humanitarian organizations is engrossed in an orderly and coherent manner, in complicity with their respective governments, in developing countries that matter to them economically and strategically. They establish stronger bonds with them in order to enhance their economy and military relationships at government-to-government level. They ignore the basic human rights and needs of the non-Muslim natives. Western nations endear themselves to Islam, especially to Turkey and Saudi Arabia, at the expense of the suppressed aborigines. Western democratic countries have a moral obligation to re-evaluate their relationships with the Muslim world. The dispossessed natives cry out for recognition and restoration of their human rights, as the true owners of their occupied land, such as the Assyrians, the Israelis, the Copts of Egypt, the Berber of North Africa and other oppressed peoples, yet the Western Nations continue to feign not to hear. They either remain mute or dismiss them as overly exaggerated.
