Nazism Gains a Foothold in Britain

Widespread demonization of Muslim’s in the British mainstream has opened the door to the far right.

By Liam Bailey

The demonisation of Muslims from the top of government down first Muslim peer Lord Ahmed spoke of is beginning to affect every aspect of British life. Not only is it leaving young Muslim’s open to fundamental and extremist propaganda but, as the verdict in last week’s trial of a far-right politician showed, it is slowly seeping through our whole society and beginning to affect our judicial and political systems.

Given the British National Party’s (BNP’s) main policy of removing all ethnic minorities from Britain, the trial of their leader Nick Griffin and his colleague Mark Collett for using words or behaviour intended to incite racial hatred didn’t surprise too many people.

The court watched Nick Griffin, who was filmed by an undercover reporter telling BNP supporters that Islam was a “wicked, vicious faith” and that Muslim’s were turning Britain into a “multi-racial hell hole” Collett was also filmed calling asylum seekers “cockroaches” and saying “lets show these ethnics the door in 2004”as well as slurring murder victim Stephen Lawrence as a drug dealer, in a pub in Keighley West Yorkshire. With such compelling and damming video evidence, and neither showing any remorse their acquittal came as a shock to many.

When compared to the previous day’s trial of 23 year old Muslim Mizanur Rahman, who was tried for much the same crime at the Old Bailey, for his attending a protest in response to the Danish cartoons carrying placards saying “annihilate those who insult Islam” and “behead those who insult Islam”. As well as calling for more Sep. 11th style attacks and soldiers to be brought home from Iraq in body bags. Despite his apology: “I didn’t think about what I was saying.” and his lawyer comparing his remarks to those made from soapboxes at Speaker’s Corner, Rahman was found guilty of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with intent to stir racial hatred.

Given the similar crimes and the lack of remorse shown by the BNP defendants who were also faced with stronger evidence than the young Muslim defendant, the contrasting verdicts were an indication that Islamaphobia, caused largely by the government’s demonization of Muslim’s is affecting justice in Great Britain.

Islamaphobia first became a problem after 9/11, but it really started increasing after the terror attacks on the London underground July. 2005. Just how much of a problem it was becoming was first evident in the local elections in May this year, when the BNP gained 11 council seats. Given the party’s reputation of racism and using violence to achieve its main policy of removing all ethnic minorities from Britain; these gains were the first indicator that Labour’s tough stance on race issues and immigration was legitimising far-right views.

The Jack Straw induced veil debate, and the other prominent ministers drawn in supporting his view, Nov. 13, perhaps more than anything else accelerated the rate at which the demonization of Muslim’s and Islamaphobia was not only becoming acceptable behaviour but the norm in Britain. The debate, still making the news and drawing in yet more prominent people, like the Archbishop condemning the wearing of the veil in public, has the potential to do even more damage to race relations in Britain.

The not guilty verdict for two prominent BNP members was hailed by Jon Cruddas, a contender for the deputy leadership of Labour as a “wake up call” for his party. This has led to their considering tightening race laws even further. Calling the BNP leaders’ statements offensive, Chancellor Gordon Brown almost immediately pledged to raise the chances of convictions in similar cases by brining in tougher powers. As the trial of Mizanur Rahman showed the law is tough enough, further tightening legislation in the current climate of Islamaphobic double standards would only increase the persecution of Muslim’s for such crimes.

I believe it may already be too late but what the government should focus on is reversing its anti-Muslim rhetoric and putting a stop to the government’s treating of Muslim’s differently to other ethnic groups, by trying to impose restrictions on their religion and behaviour. Contrary to the governments belief that this would reduce terrorism and increase integration it is in fact having the opposite affect…

My last article dealt with the detrimental affect the government’s rhetoric demonizing our Muslim communities is having on our efforts in fighting “home–grown” terrorism. These latest developments show that since the 7/7 attacks, the governments actions and rhetoric, like that of Jack Straw’s veil views, in demonizing Muslims, have steadily created a substantial rift between “us” –non Muslims- and “them” –Muslims- which is causing increasing separatism in Muslims and Islamaphobia in non Muslim’s. This Islamaphobia is growing in Britain and slowly but surely threatening every aspect of British life.

Islamic Terror Rife in UK

The government’s actions have turned moderates into extremists.

By Liam Bailey

Head of MI5 Eliza Manningham-Buller shocked Britain Nov. 10 2006 when she announced that MI5 were tracking around 30 “priority one” terror plots in the UK involving 200 groups comprising of some 1600 dangerous extremists, mostly British born and linked to Al Qaeda. She also said that she believed in the not too distant future the threat could be from chemical or nuclear attacks. Adding that “martyrdom” videos showed that extremists were clearly motivated by their interpretation of U.K foreign policy as Anti-Muslim, “in particular the U.K’s involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan”.A video of one of the 7/7 bombers, released shortly after the attacks stated only the Iraq war as a reason for the attacks, this is because even Muslim’s can see the reasoning behind the Afghanistan invasion, given the carnage of 9/11 and the strong links between the perpetrators and terrorism central Afghanistan.

The media made a mockery of the justification for the Iraq war, illuminating the “sexed up dossier” and 45 minute strike lie, leaving Muslim’s to wonder at the true reason for obliterating Muslim land.

So when the U.K under Blair went ahead with its part in the Iraq war, despite the millions of people, including many Muslim’s protesting before the event, this caused many British Muslim’s, mainly the young to rebel against our way of life; creating an element of separatism within our Muslim communities.  

Blair and Bush’s actions before the Iraq war, like Gauntanamo bay displaying severe discrimination against Muslim’s, guilty (and tortured to admit it) until proven innocent under the watch of two supposedly democratic governments. Gauntanamo Bay was also responsible for showing Muslim’s and non-Muslim’s that the U.S and U.K governments clearly felt it was okay to treat Muslim’s as second class citizens, not entitled to the same basic rights as non-Muslim’s, such as innocent until proven guilty and the right to legal counsel, or the Geneva convention preventing torture.  This laid the foundations for the separatism the Iraq war created.

As a dispatches survey in July/Aug 2006 found that the separatism is young Muslims, alienated and disillusioned by British foreign policy, focusing on their religion and becoming devout Muslim’s, in that they stop enjoying western comforts and past-times. I believe their drifting away from their British roots and British friends makes them ripe for radicalization as Eliza Manningham-Buller said “by friends, families or organised training events in Britain and abroad.”

The 7/7 bombings, an unintended consequence therefore of the UK’s support Gauntanamo bay, and involvement in the Iraq war brought the War on Terror to UK shores, leading to heightened security in the capital and increased pressure on the intelligence services.
Religious discrimination against Muslims increased after the July 7 attacks, which also showed, long before the MI5 chief’s announcement, that the increasing separatism within our Muslim communities, particularly among the young, can easily turn into extremism and “home-grown” terrorism. This increased the demonization, discrimination and persecution of Muslims, which in turn increased Muslim separatism, and the vicious cycle began.

The MI5 chief also said that the number of plots had increased by 80% since January, this can’t be directly put down to Afghanistan, Gauntanamo or Iraq, but their triggering 7/7 and the heightened pressure on the government and intelligence services led to intelligence mistakes, homeland security policy and foreign policy that can account for such a staggering increase. The first, an intelligence and police mistake was the Forest Gate raid.

The Forest Gate raid angered Muslim’s, initially because of the shooting, the unnecessary level of force/officers (250) and the almost immediate suspicions in the media that the raid was launched on flimsy intelligence. Subsequent stories unfolded in the coming days, revealing the raid was launched on the flimsiest of uncorroborated intelligence, from –according to his own barrister- an “utter incompetent”. Serving a sentence under the terrorism act 2000, Abu Bakr Mansha reportedly gave the information in return for a transfer to a more lenient prison.  Blair’s support for Gauntanamo and the Forest Gate raid also showed Muslim and non-Muslim Britain that (Blair) the UK government felt that the current massive problem of terrorism being carried out by Muslims, gave them the right to openly discriminate against and persecute Muslim’s, this further demonized the Muslim community and fuelled the vicious cycle of discrimination and separatism. 

The 7/7 bombings also enabled the government to pass new terror legislation: The Terrorism Act 2006.

The changing or expansion of the definition of terrorism, and the inclusion of “glorification of terrorism” as a charge in the Terrorism Act 2006 worried civil liberties campaigners, who feared anyone campaigning against the government could be accused of glorifying terrorism and therefore arrested.   The new laws and police powers, especially longer detention of terror suspects; extended to 28 days without charge and extended stop and search and interception powers –surveillance, phone taps and room bugs- have and are causing anger within the British Muslim community.  Even the governments information commissioner fears that Britain has become a surveillance society.

Muslim’s, especially the young have been complaining about increased persecution by the police since before the 7/7 attacks, especially the stop and search powers of the Terrorism Act 2000 being used excessively and disproportionately against them. As I have said the 7/7 attacks increased pressure on the police, so the extension of stop and search powers in the new bill -mid 2006- meant even more young Muslim’s were being stopped and searched, devout Muslim’s with the stereotypical Islamist look –like Osama Bin Laden- were increasingly targeted by police. This isn’t entirely the police’s fault, potential terrorists are likely to be Muslim, but under the new laws, stopping and searching the same individuals or groups is doing more harm than good.

The police’s best chance in the fight against terrorism comes from regular, reliable intelligence from within the Muslim community, continuing to demonize, create the impression of discrimination, and Blair’s comments after Forest Gate that more similar raids were likely; practically saying that stopping another attack is more important than the obvious mistreatment and shooting of a subsequently innocent –second class citizen-Muslim, decreases the chances of obtaining said intelligence and therefore of successfully fighting terror.

The Israel/Lebanon conflict was another possible turning point between growing levels of Muslim separation and the current heightened threat from extremism/terrorism or as Eliza Mannigham-Buller put it between “passive sympathy” and “active terrorism.” 

Blair’s handling of the Israel/Lebanon conflict again showed double standards and discrimination against Muslim’s, in that he and Bush condemned Hezbollah killing civilians in rocket attacks but allowed Israel to continue indiscriminately killing Lebanese Muslim’s. Even as most other world leaders were calling for an immediate ceasefire. Some Muslim’s must have thought the only way to stop Israeli bombardment was for Hezbollah to defeat Israel, leading to many Muslim’s in the Middle East taking up arms in Jihad and going to Lebanon to fight.

I’m sure many of Britain’s young Muslim’s were also angered by the heavy civilian death toll and with vivid images in every news report like the 34 children killed in Qana may quite possibly have radicalized some young Muslim’s in Britain and around the world, saving the terror networks and radical clerics a job. Undoubtedly, Blair’s support for such carnage increased the separatism among British Muslim communities, leaving yet more young Muslim’s ripe for radicalization and more worryingly with so many Jihad video’s just one Google away, possibly some actively seeking out terror networks to join.

Jack Straw’s –publicity stunt- comments that Muslim women wearing the veil was a barrier to communication and would hinder the integration of Muslim communities. Also adding that he felt all Muslim women should voluntarily remove their veils. The debate they provoked brought support for his remarks from several other prominent government ministers. Shadow Home Secretary David Davis feared the veil was creating a voluntary apartheid. As I wrote in a previous article, Jack Straw’s comments and those supporting them could eventually lead to government sanctioned apartheid, by denying Muslim women the same rights as everyone else, to wear what they want in a “free” country. As the first Muslim peer Lord Ahmed said this added to the demonization of and discrimination against U.K Muslims coming from the top of government down, this again increased the separatism making terror networks and radical cleric’s job of recruitment far easier.

So, in attempting to stop another 7/7, the UK government, police and intelligence services’ actions have demonized Muslim’s and gave the impression that, given this new threat, persecution of Muslim’s is okay. Every action that did this increased the feeling of separatism within young U.K Muslims. As 7/7 and The MI5 chief’s announcement showed, this separatism has been increasingly turned into extremism by the radical clerics and terror groups. Therefore, because of the government’s ill-thought out actions, especially those since January the U.K now faces an incredible threat from “home-grown” Islamic terrorism.

Foiled Terror Plot: A Taste Of Things To Come!

As Blair continued to back U.S support for Israel continuing its action against Hezbollah, the diplomatic efforts so far, among other things have ensured last month’s foiled terror plot is a taste of things to come.

By Liam Bailey

The U.K under Blair going ahead with its part in the Iraq war, despite the millions of people, including many Muslim’s protesting before the event caused many British Muslim’s, mainly the young to rebel against our way of life; creating an element of separatism within our Muslim communities.  Blair and Bush’s actions before the Iraq war, Gauntanamo bay displaying severe discrimination against Muslim’s, guilty (and tortured to admit it) until proven innocent under the watch of two supposedly democratic governments, undoubtedly along with the Iraq war, a major factor in the reasons for the 7/7 bombings.  

Gauntanamo bay was also responsible for showing Muslim’s and non-Muslim’s that the U.S government clearly felt it was OK to treat Muslim’s as second class citizens, not entitled to the same basic rights as non-Muslim’s, such as innocent until proven guilty and the right to legal counsel, and the Geneva convention preventing torture.  The 7/7 bombings, an unintended consequence therefore, Gauntanamo bay, and the Iraq war brought the War on Terror to our shores and led to heightened security in the capital and increased pressure on the intelligence services, ultimately leading to the Forest Gate raid and the new terror laws, both of which have proved to be massive mistakes in the larger war against extremism. 

The Forest gate raid angered Muslim’s, initially because of the shooting, the unnecessary level of force/officers (200) and the almost immediate suspicions in the media that the raid was launched on flimsy intelligence, subsequent stories unfolded in the coming days, revealing the raid was launched on the flimsiest of uncorroborated intelligence, reportedly from a retard serving a sentence under terror legislation, who gave the information in return for a transfer to a more lenient prison.  Blair’s support for Gauntanamo and the Forest Gate raid also showed Muslim and non-Muslim Britain that (Blair) the UK government felt that the current massive problem of terrorism being carried out by Muslims, gave them the right to openly discriminate and persecute Muslim’s. 

The new terror laws however, have and are causing continuIraqal anger and separatism within the British Muslim community on the scale of Gauntanamo, Iraq and Forest gate put together.  Many British Muslim’s, especially the young and those with the stereotypical Islamic terrorist look (like Osama bin Laden) are complaining of increased harassment and persecution by the police, this isn’t entirely the police’s fault, potential terrorists are likely to be Muslim, but stopping and searching the same individuals or groups is doing more harm than good.  The police’s only chance in the fight against terrorism comes from regular, reliable intelligence from within the Muslim community, continuing to create the impression of discrimination, and Blair’s comments after Forest Gate that more similar raids were likely and practically saying that stopping another attack is more important than the obvious mistreatment and shooting of a subsequently innocent Muslim, decreases the chances of obtaining said intelligence and therefore of successfully fighting terror.

As I have said and the channel 4 dispatches survey found, when the survey was taken the mistreatment of Muslim’s by Bush, Blair and the British police had led, more to an increasing separatist attitude of focussing on their religion, than extremism, mainly within British youth, although the survey also found that 1 in 4 Muslim’s thought the bombers actions on 7/7 were justified.  The Israel/Lebanon conflict has proved, I believe to be the turning point between growing levels of Muslim separation and extremism/terror.  The U.S and U.K gave unrelenting support for Israel’s right to defend itself, even as more and more world leaders and other prominent figures stated that Israel’s actions were grossly disproportionate and called for an immediate ceasefire, Bush and Blair repeated the consistently changing Israeli line of not maintaining the status quo, and that a ceasefire wouldn’t come until conditions were met for sustainable peace.

U.S and U.K support for Israel’s disproportionate and ultimately murderous offensive effectively sunk the peace process every time. I have written many times that I believed the U.S’ main reason for being at the centre of “diplomatic efforts” was to guarantee Israel was given enough time to take out Hezbollah, or at least severely diminish their capabilities to retaliate against Israel in the event of a strike on Iran.  Earlier in the peace process, at the Rome conference all parties were calling for an immediate ceasefire, except Condoleezza Rice and the U.S, who said that the threat from Hezbollah had to be removed before a ceasefire would come, this proved to be a written permission slip for the Israeli offensive.  At the same conference she also said that an International force couldn’t be expected to enter Lebanon under fire, this led to the next round of obstructing peace, when Israeli leaders began saying a ceasefire or withdrawal wouldn’t come until an International force was in Lebanon.

All this, in me led to the belief that this conflict wouldn’t end until Hezbollah were defeated, or sufficiently incapacitated to retaliate against Israel were Iran attacked.  To Muslim’s, who’s brothers and sisters were dying by the hundred in Lebanon, this obstruction of the peace process by the U.S and Israel left Muslim’s thinking the only way to stop the slaughter is for Hezbollah to defeat Israel, this undoubtedly led to many Arab’s in the Middle East taking up arms in Jihad.  In the current climate of separatism among most British Muslim’s, particularly the young, Blair’s handling of the Israeli/Lebanon conflict again showed double standards and discrimination of Muslim’s, in that he and Bush’s obstruction of the peace process was allowing Israel to carry on killing innocent Lebanese Muslims. 

Therefore Gauntanamo, Iraq, Forest gate, the new terror laws and the resulting treatment of British Muslim’s by the police, combined with Al Qaeda’s Ayman Al Zawahiri’s statement on Al Jazeera July 27th, calling for “Muslim’s everywhere” to “fight and become Martyrs in the war against the Zionists and crusaders” as the recent foiled plot displayed, to turn increasing separatism among British Muslim’s into increasing extremism and therefore, terrorism.  So, under Blair’s government the way the police are attempting to counteract the growing risk of UK terror attacks, is increasing future levels of extremism and therefore increasing the threat we all face.  Blair’s unrelenting support for Bush as he continues to hi-jack the war on terror, selfishly using the public’s fear of Islamic extremist terrorism to justify war securing Israeli shared Middle Eastern domination.  Resulting in the slaughter of thousands of innocent Muslim’s (of course according to Bush and Blair they are already guilty, of following Islam.) mainly in Gaza, Iraq and Lebanon; guaranteeing that the recent foiled terror attacks are a taste of what’s to come.

War On Terror Scene 4 Act 3: Won’t Do Right for Doing Wrong.

There was an article on Guardian unlimited by someone called leader, on the police raid and shooting of a young Muslim, which, now appearing to have been based on flimsy intelligence is yet another diesel soaked rag to the anti-western fire burning throughout the Islamic world.  The article titled Intelligence needed, which can be read here prompted me to share my views on the matter.

By Liam bailey

Leader says in his article that we learned a lot from the 9/11 commission, I suspect the people that count haven’t learned very much, and what they have learned is too little too late.

I was listening to a law lord’s debate on the new terror laws. One of the lords stated one of the police cases for the necessity of the new laws: a case involving around twelve terror suspects, all requesting legal representation by name from the same firm. As the firm didn’t have sufficient staff to allow many of the suspects to be interviewed simultaneously, the police cited this as significantly delaying what would already be a lengthy interviewing process, signaling the need for longer detention without charge. However, as more and more of us are realising that the war on terror has largely been a buzz word/scare tactic to capitalize on the public’s irrational fear of this particular brand of Islamic extremist terrorism, to initiate U.S plans for future oil-supply security. I suspect the Metroplitan police leadership are jumping on the Bush/Blair bandwagon in an attempt to use the same fears to secure new laws, like longer detention without charge, which they have wanted for years. 

There is significant evidence to say that the U.S had planned for “regime change” in Afghanistan and Iraq long before 9/11, and with Bush and Blair’s case for war now clearly known to have been a pack of lies it is hard to believe Bush didn’t have a predisposed ambition to take over oil-rich Iraq. It is just unfortunate for us that Blair chose to be an unquestioning Bushite. These two wars both unnecessary and useless in fighting global terrorism, because they have turned into massive new causes of outrage in the Islamic world, making recruiting, which was already relatively easy for the terror networks, even easier, they also put Britain up to second on the Islamic extremists hit list of destinations for attacks. When Britain was attacked, it became an opportunity for the government to push through these ridiculous infringements of human rights of the terror act 2006, which, in defence of Blair are, I believe a genuine attempt to make our country safer from terrorism, in his warped idea of fighting terrorism, learned from oil-biased Bush. As I said I suspect the police have wanted to detain people for longer without charge for many years now, the public’s hysteria of terrorism caused by 7/7 has proved to be perhaps the only way they could justify it to the public. The saddest thing about it is whereas you can understand (not condone) the Police’s motives, Blair’s motives for whole-heartedly supporting the case are less understandable.

Blair is perhaps one of the only informed person in Britain or the world that still believes their (his and Bush’s) handling of the rise of Islamic extremist terrorism has been on the right tracks. The scare tactics Bush and co, namely Cheney and Rumsfeld used after 9/11 to create enough hysteria to justify the two invasions, have unfortunately obviously had an effect on Tony Blair. You can hear it in the way he speaks about the “terrorists” in the same way Bush does, but Bush knows his intentions are to scare; Blair actually believes everything he says. In reality, the war on terror so far has been so badly wrong that it has served to increase the problem and accelerate the rise of Islamic extremism around the world. So these laws, and the two shootings the first of which was a massive blunder and the latest has proved to have been based on flimsy intelligence, coinciding with the atrocities inflicted by the marines at Haditha is sure to have added further to the anti-American fire burning throughout the Islamic world. One in four Muslim’s are already sympathetic to the terrorist’s aims and methods, and increasingly even the most liberal Muslim’s are becoming outraged by the continual western abuses of power.

War On Terror: Only When It affects Us

Is it any wonder the hotbed of anti-western feeling in the Islamic world is resulting in more and more terrorism? When time and again mainly America, but also other western countries display a willingness to go further than, or create new laws when it comes to attacking and/or occupying oil bearing countries.  Ejecting Muslim clerics alleged to have incited or glorified terrorism, or imprisoning alleged terrorists for years without charge. And (in the sham War on Terror) invading the countries where they helped Islamic terror to flourish when the terrorists aims no longer coincide with U.S oil interests 

By Liam Bailey  

When the U.N deployed troops in Saudi Arabia, to combat Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait in early August 1990, there was already strong anti-American feeling in the Islamic world from past support of Israel and using
Afghanistan’s Muhajideen to achieve their aim of defeating the communist soviet invasion. When the occupation became a permanent U.S force after the
Kuwait war, anti-American feeling continued to grow in the Islamic world. 1996 brought the return of Osama Bin Laden to Afghanistan, an ex C.I.A/Saudi intelligence propaganda and funding officer, so an expert in stirring Muslim’s up to fight holy (Jihad) wars, and particularly outraged at the continued occupation of his homeland Saudi Arabia. He released two religious rulings, one in 96 called for the murder of the American’s occupying the land of the holy places, in reference to Saudi Arabia and the Muslim shrines at Mecca and
Medina. The second Fatwah, released with the leaders of four other major Muslim extremist groups, called for the murder of American’s and their allies anywhere in the world, effectively Islam declaring war on the west.
 

Despite these unintended consequences, nothing was done by the U.S or in fact anyone else to stem mistreatment of Muslim’s, which, paranoia or not was causing real problems. Islamic (Jihad) terrorists, Reagan’s freedom fighters were biting the hand that once fed them. From small beginnings, Islamic terror has grown into a massive world problem, the turning point on the date I am sure we will remember for life, 9/11/2001, when the world’s worst terrorist attack happened on American soil. Instead then of trying to stem the flow of anti-American feeling by treating, in general non-violent Muslims with respect and decency, and/or actually trying to deal with Islamic terrorism and the people responsible, America announced it’s invasion of Afghanistan. A third world and one of the poorest Muslim countries, attacked with the full might of the world’s largest army’s, supported by Britain and the second largest but arguably the best military in the world, which caused further outrage even among liberal Muslims. 

The main arm of the Bush doctrine, “regime change” achieved theoretically when the Taliban flew
Kabul after only weeks of fighting. As part of the larger doctrine, the war on terror, Bush would have done better politely asking Islamic extremists to stop terrorism, as worldwide Islamic extremist terror continued in its alarming growth. Even in Afghanistan the problem was only stored, some Taliban were sheltered by Pakistan the U.S administrations new best friend, but they largely fled to the mountains and foothills on the Pakistan border, where they had soon regrouped and began waging their holy insurgent warfare on U.K/U.S troops, which is still on-going. The invasion of Afghanistan did more harm than good, creating further anti-American feeling in the Islamic world at the same time giving the terrorists’ excellent (internet) propaganda machine plenty of (collateral damage) material, therefore increasing the number of angry Muslim recruits from around the world, coming into Afghanistan, now a massive training/exercise ground.
 

When the war on terror shifted to
Iraq less than three years later it gave the Muslim’s yet more material for their ever-growing propaganda/recruitment network, as well as another mark of Muslim resistance and cause of further outrage, as well as another massive training ground for their largely young recruits. Another mistake not learned from in Afghanistan, was the lack of post-war planning for the effective rebuilding of the countries, both of which had been ripped apart by years of largely civil war, but also against the soviets in Afghanistan, and in Iraq’s case against
Iran.  In addition, both Afghanistan’s rebels and Saddam Hussein received major assistance from the U.S and
Iraq by other western countries. Therefore, after five years of the “war on terror” which mainly supported by the U.S and UK governments has done or spent nothing to combat the many terrorist cells across Europe, in places like
Algeria and elsewhere. Instead invading two third world, war torn Muslim countries, rich either with oil, or their stability a necessity (pipelines) for the security of U.S oil supplies, both conflicts still looking no closer to being over.  It must look to Muslim’s like Bush is trying to eradicate the extremist element of the Islamic faith, one country where it exists at a time, starting with two of the places where
America had previously encouraged terrorism.
 

In March, not long after the UK government announced plans for new terror laws and the intention to eject anyone glorifying terrorism, international arrest warrants were issued for two Rwandan war criminals residing in Britain, both mayors alleged to have incited Hutu’s in their provinces to kill Tutsi’s as part of the country’s mass genocide. Three months on neither has even been visited by police.  The government says, "The warrants are invalid because the UK has no extradition treaty with
Rwanda; therefore the police have no obligation to visit the alleged war criminals."
 

In closing, American foreign policy since the 80’s, including support for Israel in their theft (in Muslims eyes) of Muslim land, and support of Muslims in Afghanistan and (covertly) other places, which later became evident as the selfish use of Muslim fighters to achieve their own aim, defeating the soviet union and world communism. Then came U.N and U.S (western world) use of Muslim land, occupying Saudi Arabia to fight the first gulf war, then the U.S/U.K invasions and occupation of Afghanistan and, joined by other western countries, Iraq, to Muslim’s all this displayed a total disregard for Muslim people, Muslim land and the Muslim faith.  So, add U.K/U.S and most of the western world’s total oil-biased disregard for Muslims, to the
UK’s discrimination in jailing and/or ejecting Muslim clerics accused of inciting terrorism, but doing nothing about African mayors accused of much the same thing and ask yourself:
 

Can we really blame the Islamic world for the high levels of anti-western feeling, which largely results in terrorism? If not, aren’t our governments are as much to blame for the massive problem of Islamic terror, as the extremists who carry it out.
