in response to reader comment: Truth About Source of Islamophobia

Submitted by Emir (United States), Sep 16, 2009 at 08:56

Islam stands for peace and justice as the righteous of all religions understand the ethical demands of their faith. Many have used religion to justify aggression, However, Christian fundamentalists see the establishment of Israel and the justification of everything Israel does in the name of its preservation as necessary for the second coming of Christ, Zionist Israeli Jews justify their continued expansion beyond what was recognized by the UN as their legitmate right based on biblical authority' war and continue to settle land recognized by the UN in violation of international law. The apartheid policy cannot lead to any viable Palestinian state and compromises its sovereignty. Israel uses self defense to justify aggression and annexing Palestinian land to expand their control over the Palestinians. Israeli peace activists undrstnd this and oppose demolition of homes and orchards and settlements on Palestinian land. The continued blockade of Gaza shows that any withdrawl from Palestinian territory is a farce and only ameans to imprison Palestinians behind walls and surrounded by settlements. What the extremist radical fundamentalist Christians and Israelis promote is a theological view that is incompatible with UN resolutions and the wishes of the US and the EU.

To demonze Islam is the means of perpetuating this injustice. The entire Israeli supported propaganda machine is devoted to this end to make Muslims as pariah in the US and the world. Israel always needs an enemy to perpetuate its image as a nation under threat and will oppose any relaxation of relations with Arab countries and Iran as an existential threat unless it neutralizes them militarily and their legitimacy as peaceful nations in the eyes of the West.. The danger is that it will again promote a war in the name of self defense despite its military might and nuclear capability. Whenever the USand the EU can overcome their one-sided support of every act of Isreal that is an obstacle to peace willthere be peace and a possibility of normal relations between all the countries inthe region and an end to the unIslamic terrorism obyfanatics alsod one in the name of self defense and the only way left for them to secure their legitimate rights. Righteous Jews and Christians reject the policies of Israel that run counter to having a Palestinian state that can live side by side with Israel.
