The monopolization of wars and the new occupation in the Muslim World
Dr. Firoz Mahboob Kamal
The imperialists’ wars and the subjugated Musli
The US and the European citizens exercise the arrogance to carry weapons anywhere in Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE, Syria, Mali, and many more Muslim countries. They even set military bases in those countries and seek no permission from anybody to kill anyone there. Rather, they are the people who give permission vis-à-vis who should carry weapons, make weapons or do war in the Muslim World. Anyone who carries a weapon, makes war, and changes the political landscape without their permission gets labeled as a terrorist and a threat to the so-called global security and stability. Such a doctrine of colonialism gives them a full monopoly of war and sanitizes every act of their invasion, oppression, murder, destruction, and exploitation in the occupied lands. They use the UN to receive such a certificate.
In the colonial era, the army of a tiny country like Belgium killed 10 million people only in Congo. And the British colonial army could almost ethnically cleanse the whole population of the Red Indians from the USA, the Aborigines from Australia, and the Maoris from New Zealand. These colonialists proved so shameless, remorseless, and morally so deprived that they erected statues of the leaders of genocidal cleansing on the occupied lands to glorify the massacres. Awfully, the same moral illness that caused immense deaths and sufferings in the former colonies still overwhelm the Muslim World. So the bloodshed continues. Like the era of old colonialism, these neo-colonialist killers do not face any conviction in the occupied lands. So they could kill more than a million in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Chechnya, Kashmir, and Yemen and could flatten hundreds of cities and villages without facing any criminal charge in any court of the world. Therefore, the avid killers of Muslims like George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Barak Obama, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, and Narendra Modi stand unpunished.
No Muslim country is immune to imperialists’ aggression. And, no Muslim country can exercise any moral or legal right to penalize even the worst criminals of the occupying countries. This is why while the US helicopters ran a raid in Abbottabad in 2011 or Raymond Davis -an armed CIA man killed two Pakistani men in Lahore in the same year, the government of Pakistan – a boastful nuclear power couldn’t dare take any action, let alone punish the cold-blooded murderers. The President and the Prime Minister of Pakistan showed tongue-tied silence even to condemn such a horrendous crime. Therefore, one can easily guess what could be the case of the non-nuclear Muslim states like Indonesia, Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and others while subjected to the same imperialist arrogance. They could be easily coerced to fit into their agenda. This is why very few Muslim countries could resist the US pressure of joining a killing mission against Iraqi Muslims in 1991 on the pretext of Saddam’s invasion of Kuwait. Whereas the same Muslim countries stayed silent while the USA invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, and Israel invaded Gaza and the Indian Army launched its killing mission in Kashmir.
Hypocrisy is the most conspicuous feature of the imperialists’ policy towards Muslims. They have their own concocted narratives to justify their crimes. While the south Sudanese Christians started their terrorist campaign to dismember the largest country in Africa, the USA and its partners called it liberation war. Not only they give them full political support but also donated huge money and weapons. But while the native citizens of Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Syria, Kashmir, or Chechnya do war to free their countries from the foreign occupiers get the label of terrorist. The US drones do not respect any border of any Muslim country and execute killing operations anywhere they wish. Israel does the same. This is indeed an absolute monopoly of a globalized war by the imperialists. They demand no less than total submission to their hegemony. Still, they blame the Muslims for their dirty mess and spread Islamophobic narratives as the cover-up. More awfully, most of the Muslim rulers, politicians, intellectuals and even ulama buy and spread the same enemy version of the stories. The sovereignty and dignity of more than 1.5 billion Muslims thus go to the gutter and the kuffar imperialists appear as the real masters of the Muslim World.
The Muslim mercenaries and their crimes
The USA has established about 800 bases worldwide. It has its Air Force base in Qatar, Naval Force base in Bahrain, and has installed a huge number of troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and many other Muslim and non-Muslim countries in the world to give long sustenance to the monopoly of their brutal war. Other countries like Russia, China, and India also run their regional monopolies in their occupied Muslim backyards. Russia has Chechnya and other Caucasian areas. China has Xing Xiang. And India has Kashmir. They also spread their own fabricated narratives to sanitize their war of blatant occupation. Whereas, the Muslims hide their own Islamic narratives, imperatives, and agendas in warfare. In fact, the ugliest deviation of the Muslims from the Qur’anic roadmap and the maximum damage to the ummah started with the betrayal of the Qur’anic agenda in warfare as well as with the denial of the core survival objective -as has been prescribed by Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. The journey to hellfire indeed starts from such a self-engineered deviation. Thus, jihad -the most powerful tool of implementation of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la’s sovereignty on earth and to protect Muslims’ independence is kept defunct to serve the agenda of the enemies.
Because of Muslims’ own betrayal, Islam survives only in the pages of the Holy Qur’an. The mass-scale conversion of the so-called believers in Islam to evil ideologies like secularism, nationalism, racism, tribalism, fascism, and capitalism has brought the most catastrophic changes in their objective of survival and lifestyle. This has indeed caused an overwhelming shift in their political, educational, professional, and cultural priorities. Whereas, the Muslims must stay faith-bound only to please Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and die for His cause –as per the Holy pledge mentioned in Sura Taubah, verse 111. But these ideological converts to evil ideologies enjoy investing their wealth, talent, and even life for the known enemies of Islam. They willingly work as mercenaries not only in their civil and military infrastructures of evil, but also in media, education, information technology, commerce, and even in intellectual warfare all over the Muslim World. The newspapers, the TV channels, and other media outlets in the Muslim countries vividly display the works of these mercenaries. They indeed run a full-scale intellectual war against Islam and the Islamists in every Muslim country. This is indeed a new form of invasive colonization of the Muslim mind by the worst form of corrosive ideologies -worse than the enemy’s military occupation. Such inclusive and invasive colonization of the intellectual premise of the Muslims and the Muslim countries never happened in the past.
As a result, Muslim men, women, and children try in every possible way to make themselves fully congruent and saleable to the enemies at a higher price. They learn languages, earn skills, and train in subjects that have higher demand in the enemy’s job market. They indeed dream for the enemies, migrate for the enemies, work for the enemies, and even do war and die for the enemies. For example, in two World Wars, more than one million Arabs and more than 200 thousand Indian Muslims fought for the British, the French, and the Italian imperialists. And now, millions of Iraqis, Syrians, Chechens, and Afghans are fighting shoulder to shoulder with the USA and the Russian kuffars. In 1971, thousands of Bengali Muslims joined the Hindu idolaters to dismember Pakistan -the largest Muslim country in the world. And the Pakistan Army under President Musharraf joined the USA’s war in Afghanistan and handed over hundreds of Islamists to the Americans to be kept and tortured in Guantanamo Bay. Such betrayal against Islam and Muslims still continues.
Because of the self-selling mercenaries with a Muslim name, the enemies of Islam –both native and foreign thrive in the Muslim lands. Therefore, they could sustain their brutal occupation and carry out their aggressive anti-Islamic agenda in politics, education, culture, administration, judiciary, and warfare. Fighting in the way of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and bringing back the glory of Islam no more survive as an issue in most of the Muslims’ lives. Thus, the enemies of Islam have monopolized the whole war effort and political activities for their own benefit and left no space for true believers and for the true Islamic cause. In fact, more Muslims are now being killed in Muslim lands by these native mercenaries than by the alien kuffars. The Muslims now face a new enemy occupation with a new name. And the crimes being committed against Islam and Muslims remain the same.
