In October 2008, the FAIR magazine picked-up twelve most Islam-hating American Jew and Christian writers and called them The Dirty Dozen. David Horowitz (US-Israel dual citizen), among them, is the driving force behind the ‘Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week’. Islam-bashing has been a very good business for the modern ‘Shylock’. According to tax records obtained through the Foundation Center, Horowitz has been the beneficiary in recent years of a number of far-right foundations, including the Allegheny ($575,000 since 2001), Carthage ($125,000) and Sarah Scaife Foundations ($800,000) – all three are part of Richard Scaife’s empire and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation (nearly $1.3 million). The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation ($475,000) also contributed nearly $500,000 to Horowitz’s enterprises over the same period.
If you read the history of terrorism from objective sources, you will find out that world’s greatest terrorist activities and mass murders were carried out by the Jews and Christians – and not the Muslims.
Terrorism has always been part of European history. In 1881, a group of anarchists (most Jews) murdered Russian Tsar Alexander II and 21 bystanders. In 1901, Christian terrorists killed US President McKinley as well as King Humbert I of Italy. Gavrilo Princip, a Bosnian Jew nationalist, assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, on June 28, 1914 – which became one of the several causes of WW I, resulting in the death of over 40 million civilians. Between 1948-49, Jewish terrorist groups destroyed over 400 Arab villages, demolished over 600 mosques and a dozen churches, killed thousands of native Muslims and Christians and drove 700,000 of them out of their land. Some of these terrorist groups still operate in Israel under different names.
The Zionist regime has been conducting terrorist activities in the US and around the world while blame Muslims for its false-flag operations.
India’s leading economic journalist and author, Swaminathan S. Anklesaria Aiyar wrote an article recently, in which he said: “All Muslims may not be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.” This comment, frequently heard after the Mumbai bomb blasts implies that terrorism is a Muslim specialty, if not a monopoly. The facts are very different”.
Terrorism is generally defined as the killing of civilians for political reasons. Going by this definition, the British Raj referred to Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad and many other Indian freedom fighters as TERRORISTS. These were Hindu and Sikh rather than Muslim.
Guerrilla fighters from Mao Zedong to Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro killed civilians during their revolutionary campaigns. They too were called TERRORISTS until they triumphed. Nothing Muslim about them.
In Palestine, after World War II, Jewish groups (the Haganah, Irgun and Stern Gang) fought for the creation of a Jewish state, bombing hotels and installations and killing civilians. The British, who then governed Palestine, rightly called these Jewish groups TERRORISTS. Many of these TERRORISTS later became leaders of independent Israel – Moshe Dayan, Yitzhak Rabin, Menachem Begin, Ariel Sharon. Ironically, these former TERRORISTS then lambasted terrorism, applying this label only to Arabs fighting for the very same nationhood that the Jews had fought for earlier.
In Germany in 1968-92, the Baader-Meinhoff Gang killed dozens, including the head of Treuhand, the German privatization agency. In Italy, the Red Brigades kidnapped and killed Aldo Moro, former prime minister.
The Japanese Red Army was an Asian version of this. Japan was also the home of Aum Shinrikyo, a Buddhist cult that tried to kill thousands in the Tokyo metro system using nerve gas in 1995.
In Europe, the Irish Republican Army (IRA) has been a Catholic TERRORIST organization for almost a century. Spain and France face a TERRORIST challenge from ETA, the Basque TERRORIST organization.
Africa is ravaged by so much civil war and internal strife that few people even bother to check which groups can be labeled TERRORIST. They stretch across the continent. Possibly the most notorious is the Lord’s Salvation Army in Uganda, a Christian outfit that uses children as warriors.
In Sri Lanka, the Tamil Tigers have long constituted one of the most vicious and formidable TERRORIST groups in the world. They were the first to train children as TERRORISTS. They happen to be Hindus. Suicide bombing is widely associated with Muslim Palestinians and Iraqis, but the Tamil Tigers were the first to use this tactic on a large scale. One such suicide bomber assassinated Rajiv Gandhi in 1991.
In India, the militants in Kashmir are Muslim. But they are only one of several militant groups. The Punjab militants, led by Bhindranwale, were Sikhs. The United Liberation Front of Assam is a Hindu TERRORIST group that targets Muslims rather than the other way round. Tripura has witnessed the rise and fall of several TERRORIST groups, and so have Bodo strongholds in Assam. Christian Mizos mounted an insurrection for decades, and Christian Nagas are still heading militant groups.
But most important of all are the Maoist TERRORIST groups that now exist in no less than 150 out of India’s 600 districts. They have attacked police stations, and killed and razed entire villages that oppose them. These are secular TERRORISTS (like the Baader Meinhof Gang or Red Brigades). In terms of membership and area controlled, secular TERRORISTS are far ahead of Muslim TERRORISTS.
In sum, terrorism is certainly not a Muslim monopoly.
There are or have been TERRORIST groups among Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, and even Buddhists. Secular TERRORISTS (Anarchists, Maoists) have been the biggest killers.
