Islam Reviled: Mission Accomplished

In order to get the dumbed-down masses onboard for a thirty years war (or so) against Islam, real and fake terrorist attacks against innocents are staged and the corporate media pounds the drums of hatred and xenophobia—not in crude Hitleresque fashion, through overt racism, but rather by concentrating on the “evil” ideology of Islam. Massoud Shadjareh, chairman of the Islamic Human Rights Commission, explains how “mosques have been attacked, a garage firebombed, people assaulted in the street and homes have had their windows broken since the July 7 bombing incidents” in London, translating into a 13-fold increase in violence against Muslims. “The total number of faith-related attacks reported across London rose 500 per cent compared with the same period last year, the Muslim Safety Forum said,” reports GG2 News. “The backlash is exactly what those who promote terrorism want,” the police chimed. Of course, the backlash is desired by the ruling elite who front and finance such terrorism (and virtually all terrorism is state-sponsored), although this is not what the police had in mind. Hatred, violence, and Islamophobia are key components for the thirty year (or longer) war against Muslims and Islamic culture. “The image of Muslims as prone to violence by virtue of their religion was mainly constructed across centuries by Europeans seeking to bolster their own purposes, a habit of politicized paranoia that is masterfully continued by freaked-out leaders of post-9/11 America,” writes James Carroll. But the ruling elite is not “freaked-out,” knowing precisely what it is doing—sowing chaos and fear and prepping the blindsided masses for the cataclysm ahead.
