Islam and the West

But the tweet was widely interpreted as tapping into the anti-Semitic trope of linking Jews with money. Democratic public figures, including Chelsea Clinton, condemned the tweet; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the House Democratic leadership issued a “Statement on Anti-Semitic Comments of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar....

 

The rule of the gun prevails in Libya ever since western forces overthrew Qaddafi. The oil-rich country, now a departure point for thousands of migrants travelling to Europe, once had one of Africa’s highest standards of living, free health care and education, with high female literacy...

 

I know Omar doesn’t support terrorism. I know she doesn’t support the Al-Qaeda terrorists who wrapped themselves in Islam and distorted the true meaning of her religion. But 2,996 people died on Sept. 11, 2001, mostly civilians. Many of those murdered were Muslim and Arab. They deserve more powerful reverence....

A small group of Muslims committed the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, but many Americans blamed Islam itself. Muslims quickly became targets of fear, disdain and demagogic political rhetoric....

For me, condemning Omar’s trivialization of the Sept. 11 mass murders is an act of being fully American, being a physician advocate for my 9/11 survivor patients and their families, and at the same time – keeping in line with Islam’s clear teachings – being fully Muslim. Omar’s words are a grotesque injustice against people who have already experienced diabolic injustice...

From the CIA’s funnelling of over a billion dollars to Islamic militants in the 1970s war in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union to the billion dollars spent on training and equipping the radical jihadists currently fighting in Syria, the United States has repeatedly empowered extremists who have filled the vacuums of failed states it created....

 

Her comments sparked an ugly episode among House Democrats when they responded with a resolution condemning anti-Semitism which became a broader declaration against all forms of bigotry....

Within hours of vicious massacre, two mosques in Christ-church, New Zealand were the targets of an Islamophobia attack that killed at least 50 people and left over 40 wounded. Prime Minister Jacinda Andren described it as “an act of terrorist”....

 

It was military intervention on the part of France, Britain and the US that in 2011 succeeded in overthrowing Muammar Gaddafi who despite his eccentricities presided over a stable and prosperous nation whose nationals enjoyed a high standard of living....

 

This is not, however, a broad creeping liberalism; it is, more specifically, a creeping progressivist narrative – and it is changing the face of American Islamism. But is this genuine progressivism? ...

 

How on the turbulent Earth did the fourth son of immigrants from a giant country long discouraging toward female athleticism end up as the exhilarated play-by-play voice of the very American women’s Final Four?...

 

The politico-economic doctrine of the PM Jacinda has effectively countered the ineffable negativity created by the Christchurch attacker by practically demonstrating the above three themes. She indeed created a counter-discourse with full force with a view to enervating the disastrous economic impacts....

Since the Middle Ages, Islam has occupied a space of alterity and difference in Western consciousness. This image of Islam has shifted in nature over the centuries depending on the impact of the West’s various encounters with the religion....

 

Notwithstanding what is meant by such a nebulous term like Islamophobia, one thing is clear that it will have a negative bearing on the voices of dissent and reform within Muslim societies. In the name of protecting Muslims, the left will end up advocating the causes and concerns of those Muslims who actually have been responsible for the mess that Muslim societies find themselves into....

The objective here is not to recall that tragedy but to draw attention to the behaviour of George W. Bush Jr., then president of USA who was quick to blame Osama Bin Laden, an alleged Islamist terrorist and leader of Al-Qaeda, even before ordering proper investigation into security lapses by the most technologically advanced country. Consequently, the world got mercilessly torn into two blocks….in the words of Bush: “either you are with us or the terrorists.”...

The prime minister’s response to the shooting has indeed been exemplary but the reaction to it has left little space for the victims, or the wider Muslim community in New Zealand or around the world....

Pakistan’s three most active terror groups, Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), the Khorasan Chapter of the Islamic State, and Lashkar-i-Jhangvi were responsible for 67 per cent of all deaths in Pakistan in 2017. The TTP and the Khorasan Chapter were both responsible for 233 deaths each, making them the deadliest groups in Pakistan...

 

I won’t say you have failed in your mission. Your mission was to cause terror and you have, indeed, succeeded in that. You have terrified a major chunk of people. People like me do have faith in God’s plan but are frightened about their and their beloveds’ future...

Since the middle of last year, MI5, the security service, has been tasked with helping the police tackle the growing threat from British far-right extremists. Counter-terrorism officers have been using a range of methods, including phone taps, to gather intelligence on what the most violent individuals have been planning or aspiring to do....

 

Muslims have been violently targeted; the nation has been violated. A mixture of Islamophobia and racial hatred, the massacre in Christchurch has been a massive blow for New Zealand’s tolerant, culturally diverse and peaceful self-image....

 

That the inspiration comes from other groups that they classify as enemies does not generate too many contradictions. For example, after the attacks of September 11, 2001, a constellation of radicals, from left to right, showed admiration for the audacity with which Osama Bin Laden had humiliated the American power...

 

It is commendable for us to act with positivity after such an attack, but it is important that with forgiveness, comes equal demands for accountability. Forgiveness is an important act for Muslims – not only for our own personal health (since it is damaging to carry resentment and anger), but for the good of society....

 

Ajmal Masroor, a Bangladeshi born British Imam, broadcaster and politician from the United Kingdom expressed his gratitude to NZ’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for how she handled the terrorist attack in the country and what other western world leaders could learn from her....

The spate of vandalism came just days after a gunman killed 50 worshippers during Friday prayers at two mosques in New Zealand, placing Muslim communities in the UK and around the world on heightened alert amid concerns over the safety of their communities....

 

"According to Prophet Muhammad - Sallal Allahu Alayhi wa Salaam (peace be upon him) - the believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When any part of the body suffers, the whole body feels pain," she said. "New Zealand mourns with you, we are one." Her message was clear. Islam is neither the "other" nor the "invader"....
