Cry from an Arab American over the Russian Children
Among the Chechen terrorists
that did the unspeakable in a Russian school were reported to be several
Arabs. Personally, I am not surprised, but how many Arabs in the
even try to connect the dots and link their current radical culture of
Islam to these unspeakable deeds around the world?
They simply do not see the
connection and unfortunately the world media is not doing its job in
telling the Arab World about it. CNN feels that being “objective” is
never to blame Arab culture, and it ends up supportive of Arab views in
its delivery of news in the
and around the world.
Until age 30, I lived as a
Muslim in the
. Horrible news such as from
, or other terrible incidents like in the
, were always covered up and twisted to portray Muslim terrorists around
the world as just innocent victims of terrible discrimination. These
murderers were always portrayed as minority “freedom fighters” who
needed to rise against the majority Christian or non-Muslim population
in their midst.
The larger picture in these
countries and the reasons behind the turmoil was never explained in any
other way. I will never forget the prayers that many Arabs offered in
support of minority Muslims all over the world who were believed to be
manning the frontier for Jihad. The
world-wide Muslim community is tasked spreading
Islam in the “lost” world around them, in Dar-El-Harb, the land of
war, to be conquered by the sword.
I once had a guest from
in my home who was the most kind and wonderful Muslim
man you would ever want to meet. While he was watching
rebels on TV, I saw him pray and cry for their success against the
. Praying for killing of the innocent never seemed holy to me.
The world has been seeing Arab
radical terrorism growing without much international outcry for half a
century. I started seeing many men and women in my culture of origin
turn into robotic monsters with a wish to destroy life on earth in order
to go to heaven. Many thought this was only against
and its interests and, as a result, they ignored
The world and its lazy media is
not doing Arabs or the rest of the world any favor by sticking their
heads in the sand like ostriches. Even after 9/11, many in the West and
the UN are still finding excuses for terrorism. Even the Arab’s best
friends, the French, thought they would get special treatment from
terrorists by selling out the
and supporting Saddam Hussein. But in the eyes of the terrorists the
French were always just temporary friends until the right time came to
strike - - one enemy at a time.
Where are Muslim demonstrations
against terror? All I’ve ever noticed following 9/11 were celebrations
throughout the Arab world. Taking a stand against terrorism and for
reformations in the Muslim world is viewed as an Israeli conspiracy. The
very few courageous Arab writers who think and speak independently are
often attacked and terrorized for their views, and accused of being
puppets of the Zionists. Apparently standing strong against terrorism
and for reformations in the Muslim world is viewed as “Zionist”
conspiracy no matter how heinous the murders conducted by militant
Since 1967 there have been
thousand of Arab terrorist attacks.
had only one against the Arabs – and that was by a mentally deranged
man that was condemned vehemently by almost all of
’s citizens. The Israeli government never tried the Arabs who beat the
attacker to death after he surrendered. Yet I hear apologists for
terrorism here cite that one incident as justification for the thousands
and thousands terrorist attacks
over the years.
Even worse, how many resolutions
by the UN Commission on Human Rights condemning an Arab country for
human rights violations have ever been proposed or passed? The answer is
zero. But the number of Commission on Human
Rights resolutions condemning
for human rights violations is 26. Imagine that! Is there any doubt that
much of the state-sponsored and culturally-encouraged terrorism all over
by the Arab states is a violation of someone’s human rights? Could it
be that the UN is contributing to the problem, rather than solving it?
Seeing the horror on the faces
of the Russian children who looked malnourished and poverty stricken to
begin with, I decided to make a stand against the Islamic culture of
terror I grew up in and the madness resulting from its teachings.
The intense and repetitive
teachings of hate produce inhumane robots. Make no mistake about it, my
motivation is out of love for the goodness in the Muslim world to
prevail and that I do know exists, but is today so deeply hidden under
the layers of indoctrination. Accusing me of being part of a “Zionist
conspiracy” is a joke at this point from the other side to cover up
what is going on.
It is time for the world media
and the UN to take a serious stand against Islamic, yes, Islamic,
terror. The UN should immediately issue a very strong resolution
condemning terrorism with serious consequences to Oil rich Arab
countries that finance terrorism or teach that terrorists are heroes
going to heaven. No “ifs,” “ands” or “buts” and no diluted
language by the international media.
The out-of-control culture in
needs a wake up call and a dose of reality. I cannot defend the cruel
teachings and hate speech in my culture of origin any more. No other
Arab with any integrity should. There is no cause in the world that
should justify this insanity. I lived it and know what will end it. What
is needed immediately is a united world stand against the Arab’s
stagnant and barbaric view of the world and of themselves. We should
demand from our media to report the truth and not stand as an obstacle
in facing and fighting danger. The world cannot stand by, confused and
equivocal about 9/11 and Islamic terrorism any more.
and the good people of the world, save my Arab culture of origin from
