IF there is any illusion about who controls the outcome of the US presidential elections, than just look back at the political landscape and legacy left behind by ex President Bush and President Obama. In 2009 newly elected President Obama’s historic speech to the Muslim world in Cairo was titled ‘A new beginning’. It was meant to be a gesture of reconciliation in contrast to George Bush’s world view of “if you are not with us then you are against us”. Obama’s Cairo speech was meant to lull the Muslim world into a false sense of security that the divisive and unjust War on Terror would cease.
Instead a new lease of life was injected to this ‘war with no end’ and caused more death and destruction; destabilising countries, wars on Libya and Syria, renewed conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan and draconian anti-terror laws introduced to create hatred and fear of Muslims; to a point where extremism is judged by the amount of times one goes to the Mosque, or how long ones beard is and of course the Hijab.
When Obama took office in 2009, the war by drones was confined to Pakistan. During Obama’s time drone attacks spread to Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, East Africa and Iran. Dozens of secret drone facilities were set up in the Middle East, Africa, and Southwest Asia, with operational hubs in the U.S, thousands of miles from where the drones killed indiscriminately. Secret military documents have revealed that 90% of those killed in drone attacks were not the target.According to Watson Institute International and Public affairs “Almost 57,000 Pakistanis, combatants and non-combatants, have been killed since 2001. Of these, about 21,500 are civilians. Nearly 40,000 civilians have been wounded. There are about 1.4 million refugees or internally displaced Pakistanis”.
The war on terror policies in the U.S, like the UK and France not only targeted Muslims but anyone deemed to oppose government policies. A key part of Obama’s war on immigrants is a federal program called “Secure Communities,” whereby police send the fingerprints of every person arrested to the Department of Homeland Security. The ICE detention centres (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) exist everywhere; Amnesty International has raised concerns about the widespread abuse, sexual and physical, being carried out in these centres against vulnerable detainees with no access to lawyers.
It is interesting to note that this is the same Department of Homeland Security which after 9/11 under the direction of Zionist Michael Chertoff who was chief of the criminal division of the Justice Department from 2001-2003, instigated the capture of 1,100 Muslims falsely labelling them as suspects connected to the Sept. 11 attacks. In secret detention centres these innocent people were physically and psychologically abused, denied any legal counsel, tried in secret military tribunals before they were deported, or released.
In an article, “9/11 Israel’s Grand Deception” writer Jonathan Azaziah states that 140 Mossad agents had been arrested for espionage, while police and FBI also discovered Israelis posing as Arabs, some with box cutters (the same tools the hijackers were supposed to have used), $4700 cash and foreign passports.
He wrote: “It was Chertoff who blocked the efforts of several agents across the FBI’s ranks to investigate the hundreds of Mossad spies detained in connection with the attacks on 9/11. He also supervised the destruction and confiscation of evidence that would have linked Israel and the US to the attacks like videotapes, eyewitness accounts, written testimonies and debris from Ground Zero.”
With all the evidence available on 9/11, Muslims are still paying the price for the war on terror. US troops never really pulled out of Afghanistan and Iraq, rather more wars were on the agenda and now the pressure is on to go into Iran.After all isn’t the US following the Theodore Herzel’s Oded Yinon plan incorporated in the Project for the New American Century which aims to balkanise the Middle East as well as Pakistan along sectarian lines,
According to Zionism the destruction of Pakistan is as important as destruction of the Islamic world, because Pakistan is a nuclear state, with the ability to step in any war against Israel. In 2001 Mossad and RAW unleashed the codenamed ‘Dragon Policy’ to create ‘sectarian’ chaos within Pakistan, they hired mercenaries like Xe Water, drug lords and mafia figures who have killed thousands and nearly destroyed the economy. This was clearly revealed by the Raymond Davies incident, who was caught supplying information and funds to an Indian/Israeli terrorist cell working with the Pakistan Taliban.
As the US elections draw nearer, its outcome is extremely important for Muslim countries, especially Pakistan, as its aggressive neighbour India has the support of Israel; just recently Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon visited Prime minster Modi to boost indo-Israel defence ties. The outcome looks bleak as the two main contenders for the post of the next US President have already compromised their position and shown their allegiance to Israel.
Bernie Sanders the Jewish candidate with ambiguous views on Israel- Palestine issues can afford not to go to AIPAC’s meeting as no matter what he does he can’t be shut down by being called anti-Semitic. The duplicity of western leaders is highlighted by supporting a nation that has flouted every UN resolution and continues to massacre the Palestinians. Either way If Trump gets in or Clinton, Israel will be winning, as both have bowed and knelt to the Jewish lobbies. The groundwork to marginalise Muslims as a threat to the West has been done over a decade of virulent anti Muslim reports by the Zionist owned media, all Trump has to do is capitalise on it.
That’s why we see Trump confidently making outrageous statements, that ‘ Muslims should be banned from entering America’ or that Nazis style ID cards should be introduced for Muslims and they should also be put on a data base and tracked. On his position regarding Pakistan being a nuclear state, he stated: “Pakistan is a serious problem”. He argues that “India’s the check to Pakistan. And you have to get India involved. They have their own nukes, they have a powerful army. They seem to be the real check mate; they seem to be the real group…”
