“They plot and plan, and God too plans; but the best of planners is God"
"The patriotic Jew, Paul of Tarsus, in a word, was probably the first man to see the possibilities of conducting war by propaganda.”
~From Marcus Eli Ravage “Commissary to the Gentiles”
The following article establishes the strong prohibition in Qur’an and Hadiths for suicide.
For Muslims, the following point is emphasized very strongly in that article and runs contrary to what we are told about Muslims and suicide in Western media:
It is He Who giveth life
and who taketh it,
and to Him shall ye
all be brought back. [10:56]
God is the author of life and it is only He who could take life or tell human beings under what conditions a life should be taken such as in punishment for murder and spreading destruction and havoc in the land. As human beings we don't own our lives, God does! As such we don't have the authority to take it. Suicide is disrespecting God and being ungrateful for the life He has given us.
Denying that suicide is permitted in Islam is enough for most Muslims. Reports about Muslims committing suicide will be strongly condemned by Muslim leaders and the declaration that the person committing suicide was going against Islam -–not following the religion -- will be made. That is as far as many Muslims would go to address the issue regarding suicide and Islam. But this still does not answer the question that is burning in so many people's minds regarding why are there so many suicide killings done mainly by Muslims all over the world? Aren't all the suicidal Muslims familiar with the simple texts in their Qur'an and Hadiths about the strong prohibition on suicide and the devastating punishments for those committing it? According to what we read and hear in the media, a suicide bombing takes place just about every day in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the Muslim world and the senseless killing takes the lives of countless innocents. Why do Muslims today disobey their religion on such a grand scale -- especially when fighting Americans and Israelis -- to go against the clear prohibition in their religion about suicide to cause senseless deaths not only to the enemy but to their own people?
My intent is to go further in examining the phenomenon of suicide and its association with Islam. We want to examine what is behind the elaborate propaganda scheme to paint Muslims as being suicidal as a result of being imbued with religious fervor. We will analyze this from a psychological, political, and conspiracy perspective to show the deliberate attempts to demonize Muslims and the gains made from this demonization by the enemies of Islam. We will also give examples of numerous false flag attempts made by enemies of Islam who were caught attempting bombings that were to be blamed on Muslims as suicide bombings.
It is interesting to note that if the following two statements are made, one will be believed and accepted without question and the other would be treated with skepticism and demands would be made for sources to verify the statement. The two statements are:
1) “A suicide bomber in Iraq killed a dozen civilians”
2) “Occupational forces were caught secretly planting explosives in cars and trucks driven by Iraqis so that when they exploded they could be labeled as suicide bombings.”
Statement (1) will be believed implicitly while statement (2) would be responded to with disbelief and outrageous skepticism even by Muslims and demands would be made for proof. Why are we so psychologically pre-disposed to believe that Muslims would commit suicide despite the strong prohibition in Islam and the prescribing of the most severe punishments for suicide? The world’s media wants us to believe that the more religious the Muslim, the more inclined to suicide they would be. While at the same time numerous examples can be drawn from history including the Vietnam War, the Palestinian situation, the Nicaraguan conflict, wars in Africa, India and other conflicts to show that occupiers have used false flag bombing operations to place blame on innocent parties to cause enemy factions to fight each other. Especially for the attacking army, divide and conquer has always been a strategy to weaken the enemy. The media has brainwashed the masses -- including Muslims -- to accept the Muslim suicide bomber as a fact of life and to rule out other considerations.
We will examine some of the reasons for this mental pre-disposition and the people responsible for it.
Prophet Muhammad (saaw) and Muslims throughout history never used suicide as a technique in war!!!
For suicide to even be considered against military or even civilian positions as a way of fighting is a serious violation of Islamic teachings. The prohibition in Islam against suicide is very strong. But to read and listen to this world’s media broadcasts about Islam, we would never know that.
If suicide was permitted in Islam there would be many examples of the Prophet (saaw) encouraging it and Muslim history would be replenished with examples of suicide as a technique in war. But there is no such history, no such examples and no such encouragement even down through the centuries from the 7th century Caliphates of the four rightly guided Imams, the Umayyad Empire, Abyssinian Empire, Ottoman Empire, Muslim Spain, Persia, the well documented Crusades, etc. The Iran/Iraq war -- in which more than a million people were killed -- went on for more than 8 years and had many bombings but no suicide bombings!
We are led to believe that while Islam strongly condemns suicide, somehow Muslims have become the best promoters of it. As a result of conflicts in Muslim countries, suddenly we have disobedient suicidal Muslims rising up all over Iraq, Palestine, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India and in Western countries. Why weren’t Muslims so pre-disposed to suicide during centuries of conflict in earlier years? What is different then than now in Islamic teachings to cause Muslim behavior to change so drastically such that we can’t go one day without hearing reports about Muslim suicide bombers in the Islamic world?
Even the 9/11 attacks on the US is claimed to be done by Muslims bent on suicide. Oddly, Muslims did not become so disobedient until they came in contact with Israelis and the West. There must have been something about that contact that caused Muslims to employ a method of fighting that their Qur’an strongly condemned, the examples of the Prophet (saaw) and all pious Muslims throughout the history of Islam did not endorse, their own will to live resisted and looking at the gains versus the cost, really was not worth it. At the same time we have a media that is too eager to enlighten and spread the word about crazy Muslims killing themselves for 72 virgins. This, by the way, is not even in the Qur’an or to be found anywhere in the teachings of Islam. Could it be that media reports about Muslim suicide bombers are nothing more than fantastic myths meant to demonize Muslims? Could this all be part of a war by propaganda being waged against Muslims to pre-dispose people’s minds into believing that Islam endorses suicide? The following is from the article entitled “The Myth of the Suicide Bomber” that makes this point even clearer:
Islam has been around for 1400 years. Is suicide a religio-cultural tradition? Looking only at history in the last 150 years can you point to suicide as a method of fighting the enemy? The French experience with Muslim fighters in Algeria had its bombers, but no suicide bombers. The English experience in fighting the Arabs in 1918 in Iraq was fierce, but no suicide bombers. Israel has been fighting the Palestinians since 1948, where are the Muslim suicide bombers in those years between 1948 and 1985? If it were a religious predilection it would not have made a sudden appearance in Israel within the last twenty years. Islam is a worldwide religion, fighting battles in places far from the Palestinian conflict – before 1985 where were the Muslim suicide bombers outside of Israel?
Has there been any Muslim suicide bombers?
One may ask, are you saying that there has never been a Muslim involved suicide bombing?
The question is not whether a Muslim was ever involved in a suicide bombing, but whether the numerous reports about Muslim suicide bombings true or are those reports fictional and being used as a propaganda weapon against Muslims? The references below details numerous incidents reported in mainstream media that were initially reported as suicide bombings, but on closer examination were found not to be suicide bombings. Conversely, there are numerous incidents that initially were reported as bombings in Muslim countries, only to have the reporting changed and those same incidents reported years later as suicide bombings. One very famous incident well known in the West is as follows:
In 1983 Israel invaded and occupied Lebanon. The US and France had peacekeeping forces in place near the Beirut airport. The US had a naval presence off the coast. Early one Sunday morning, simultaneously, both the French and American Marine barracks were bombed. The story was that a truck had come at high speed through a gate and exploded, killing hundreds of Marines...
Suicide was not mentioned in the original reports, in 1983, but in the twentieth anniversary reports the bombing of the US Marine barracks was said to have been done by a “suicide bomber”, and elsewhere the words “terrorist suicide bombing” were used. So by 2003 a simple bombing had become a suicide bombing. I think that change is significant.
The Myth of the Suicide Bomber
Getting involved in a case by case dispute over hundreds, possibly thousands of suicide bombing reports is not possible for us. But the cases I will present below show that when serious analysis and investigation is done, great doubts and inconsistencies are shown in those reports questioning whether or not they were indeed suicide bombings. There are many Muslims and non-Muslims who believe the numbers of actual “suicide” bombings done by Muslims are very few if any.
At this point the public is convinced of the reality of “suicide bombing”; that only Muslims are fanatical enough to commit suicide for a cause; and, perhaps most incredibly, after a 500 year hiatus (since Muslims engagement with the crusades), suddenly the Christian West has again become the target of Islam.
It is a wonderful tool for Jews who intend to foment a destructive war between Islam and Christianity. But who is really doing the suicide bombings since there is justification to show that Muslims are not the most likely candidates?
Pentagon Plan P2OG
In the article titled "CIA/US Military Perpetrated Most of Iraq's "Suicide Bombings!" by Andrew G. Marshal information about Pentagon Plan P2OG was revealed. "Specifically, the plan "recommends the creation of a super-Intelligence Support Activity, an organization it dubs the Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG), to bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence and cover and deception...The Los Angeles Times reported in 2002 that, "The Defense Department is building up an elite secret army with resources stretching across the full spectrum of covert capabilities. New organizations are being created. The missions of existing units are being revised," and quoted then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld as saying, "Prevention and preemption are ... the only defense against terrorism." Chris Floyd bluntly described P2OG in CounterPunch saying, "the United States government is planning to use "cover and deception" and secret military operations to provoke murderous terrorist attacks on innocent people."
In other words Rumsfeld's Defense Science Board (DSB), a Pentagon advisory group, created plan P2OG to use murder and terrorism for political, financial and ideological gain. The plan detailed the staging of terrorist actions in up to 80 countries and placing the blame mainly on local groups such as Islamic militant groups. In May of 2007, an Iraqi who formerly collaborated with US forces in Iraq for two and a half years stated that, "operations of planting car bombs and blowing up explosives in markets are carried out in various ways, the best-known and most famous among the US troops is placing a bomb inside cars as they are being searched at checkpoints. Another way is to put bombs in the cars during interrogations. After the desired person is summoned to one of the US bases, a bomb is place in his car and he is asked to drive to a police station or a market for some purpose and there his car blows up."
Craig Murray, former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, wrote in October of 2006, that, "The evidence that the US directly contributed to the creation of the current civil war in Iraq by its own secretive security strategy is compelling. Historically of course this is nothing new - divide and rule is a strategy for colonial powers that has stood the test of time. Indeed, it was used in the previous British occupation of Iraq around 85 years ago. However, maybe in the current scenario the US just over did it a bit, creating an unstoppable momentum that, while stalling the insurgency, has actually led to new problems of control and sustainability for Washington and London."
Military strategist William Arkin exposed Plan P2OG in the Los Angeles Times on October 27, 2002. Since that time much has been written about it and evidences of it in action in Iraq, especially the staging of suicide bombings, has been revealed.
P2OG in Action
We read and hear daily reports about suicide bombings in Iraq as if that is endemic to Islam. But at the same time we have already seen reports coming out stabbing holes in the “theory” that they were really Muslim suicides. Numerous reports detailing how bombs were planted by the occupational forces in car vehicles, soldiers enticing Iraqi children with candy and then immediately rushing out of the area after setting off bombs, trucks used by Iraqis to carry fruits and vegetables stopped at check points only to have bombs stuck in their barrels by soldiers, Mossad agents carrying out fake suicide bombings, the widely circulated story about Israelis wiring a retarded Palestinian boy for remote detonation to be labeled a suicide bombing, etc. If these incidents were not found to be false flag operations to blame Muslims, our too compliant media would have reported them as Islamic suicide killings. If the Muslim suicide bomber is so true, why would the Israelis and their allies go through so much trouble to commit false flag operations so that Muslims can be blamed for suicide bombings?
So with all this evidence of fake suicide bombings let's take a deeper look at who is really doing the “suicide” bombings and have been caught doing so?
“The Myth of the Suicide Bomber” continues with the following question about who is really doing the suicide bombings:
Suicide is absolutely unnatural; it is an aberration in creatures whose instinct is to survive. It is not easy to override that instinct. It is so contrary to instinct that stories of suicide for a cause are few and always make us marvel: the samurai who falls on his sword as penance for a loss in battle, the kamikaze pilot who knows he goes to certain death, the Roman who prefers death by his own hand to the humiliation of being killed by his enemies. There have been Christian and Buddhist martyrs who use suicide as a demonstration of belief and/or protest. All these are distinct from the unwilling martyrdom of dying in conflict.
The fact that suicide for a cause is so exceptional in our history is one thing that makes me question the burgeoning phenomenon of the “Muslim suicide bomber”. The Japanese Kamikaze pilot is understandable as a cultural phenomenon with roots in the concept of the samurai, but again, this is so exceptional that we look in awe on those whose sense of duty is so strong. Can we find a similar antecedent for this peculiar type of martyrdom among Muslims in these last fourteen centuries, keeping in mind the difference between dying in battle and an intentional suicide? I don't think so.
Are there any other instances of intentional martyrdom in all our history that have been met with such cruel derision and mockery as the “Muslim suicide bomber” of our time? Doesn’t such a reaction by itself make this case extraordinary?
That suicide for a cause is anti-instinctual, exceedingly rare, and when found, traceable to its cultural antecedents, makes me very skeptical that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of such cases would spring forth quite suddenly in a people, no matter what the provocation.
I do not believe that Muslims were involved in 9/11, but wasn't the notion of the suicide bomber the direct antecedent of the suicide hijacker? I believe there were no hijackers involved in 9/11. But for all those who buy the hijacker scenario, the preparation they have been given to believe that Muslims have no qualms about suicide leads directly to the conclusion that Muslims must be the culprits.
The Myth of the Suicide Bomber
The following shows plan P2OG in action. It is a listing showing where occupational forces have been caught in Iraq attempting to fake suicide bombings and have Muslims blamed for them. These incidents have been reported numerous times by American and international Journalists. The source of the specific reports below is John Kaminsky, American investigative reporter, author and Journalist. This is taken from his article entitled, “Sick Strategies For Senseless Slaughter”. I present a short listing below but I advise you to go to the website listed at the end of the listing for a more comprehensive listing.
Khadduri recounted a scam that opens up a clear window to seeing who is perpetrating all this inexplicable violence in Iraq. Beyond the American attempt to pacify an outraged and abused nation through demonic destruction, and beyond the Iraqi attempt to resist this totalitarian takeover by a foreign conqueror, there are more than numerous acts of violence that simply can't be understood by straightforward explanations.
I mean, when a mosque blows up and Americans blame Islamic terrorists, whether Sunni or Shiite, it makes no sense. Muslims never blow up their own houses of worship. Or when reporters sympathetic to either the Iraqi cause of freedom, or even just general principles of international justice, are suddenly assassinated and the blame is placed on often imaginary Islamic extremists whose perspective is supported by these writers, how can anyone believe that Muslims did it, even thought this is what the Zionist American press and government continue to insist.
So who's doing all these demented deeds?
1. On May 13, 2005, a 64 year old Iraqi farmer, Haj Haidar Abu Sijjad, took his tomato load in his pickup truck from Hilla to Baghdad , accompanied by Ali, his 11 years old grandson. They were stopped at an American check point and were asked to dismount. An American soldier climbed on the back of the pickup truck, followed by another a few minutes later, and thoroughly inspected the tomato filled plastic containers for about 10 minutes. Haj Haidar and his grandson were then allowed to proceed to Baghdad .4. One of the larger blasts was in an area called Ma'moun, which is a middle class area located in west Baghdad . It’s a relatively calm residential area with shops that provide the basics and a bit more. It happened in the morning, as the shops were opening up for their daily business and it occurred right in front of a butcher’s shop. Immediately after, we heard that a man living in a house in front of the blast site was hauled off by the Americans because it was said that after the bomb went off, he sniped an Iraqi National Guardsman.
A minute later, his grandson told him that he saw one of the American soldiers putting a grey melon size object in the back among the tomato containers. The Haj immediately slammed on the brakes and stopped the truck at the side of the road, at a relatively far distance from the check point. He found a time bomb with the clock ticking tucked among his tomatoes. He immediately recognized it, as he was an ex-army soldier. Panicking, he grabbed his grandson and ran away from the truck. Then, realizing that the truck was his only means of work, he went back, took the bomb and carried it in fear. He threw it in a deep ditch by the side of the road that was dug by Iraqi soldiers in preparation for the war, two years ago.
Upon returning from Baghdad , he found out that the bomb had indeed exploded, killing three sheep and injuring their shepherd in his head. He thanked God for giving him the courage to go back and remove the bomb, and for the luck in that the American soldiers did not notice his sudden stop at a distance and his getting rid of the bomb.
"They intended it to explode in Baghdad and claim that it is the work of the 'terrorists', or 'insurgents' or who call themselves the 'Resistance'.
I decided to expose them and asked your reporter to take me to Baghdad to tell you the story. They are to be exposed as they now want to sow strife in Iraq and taint the Resistance after failing to defeat it militarily. Do not forget to mention my name. I fear nobody but God, as I am a follower of Muqtada al-Sadir."
2. “A few days ago, an American manned check point confiscated the driver’s license of a driver and told him to report to an American military camp near Baghdad airport for interrogation and in order to retrieve his license. The next day, the driver did visit the camp and he was allowed in the camp with his car. He was admitted to a room for an interrogation that lasted half an hour. At the end of the session, the American interrogator told him: ‘OK, there is nothing against you, but you do know that Iraq is now sovereign and is in charge of its own affairs. Hence, we have forwarded your papers and license to al-Kadhimia police station for processing. Therefore, go there with this clearance to reclaim your license. At the police station, ask for Lt. Hussain Mohammed, who is waiting for you now. Go there now quickly, before he leaves his shift work”.
The driver did leave in a hurry, but was soon alarmed with a feeling that his car was driving as if carrying a heavy load, and he also became suspicious of a low flying helicopter that kept hovering overhead, as if trailing him. He stopped the car and inspected it carefully. He found nearly 100 kilograms of explosives hidden in the back seat and along the two back doors.
The only feasible explanation for this incident is that the car was indeed booby trapped by the Americans and intended for the al-Khadimiya Shiite district of Baghdad. The helicopter was monitoring his movement and witnessing the anticipated “hideous attack by foreign elements”.
3. The same scenario was repeated in Mosul , in the north of Iraq . A car was confiscated along with the driver’s license. He did follow up on the matter and finally reclaimed his car but was told to go to a police station to reclaim his license. Fortunately for him, the car broke down on the way to the police station. The inspecting car mechanic discovered that the spare tire was fully laden with explosives.
I didn’t think much about the story — nothing about it stood out: an explosion and a sniper — hardly an anomaly. The interesting news started circulating a couple of days later. People from the area claim that the man was taken away not because he shot anyone, but because he knew too much about the bomb. Rumor has it that he saw an American patrol passing through the area and pausing at the bomb site minutes before the explosion. Soon after they drove away, the bomb went off and chaos ensued. He ran out of his house screaming to the neighbors and bystanders that the Americans had either planted the bomb or seen the bomb and done nothing about it. He was promptly taken away.

5. On September 20, 2005 two British soldiers dressed in Arab garb and head dress drove a car towards a group of Iraqi police and began firing. The Arab garb was obviously undeniable proof that the operation, whatever its ultimate intention, was staged so that any eyewitnesses would believe it had been carried out by Muslims. Further to this there was a large Shiite religious celebration taking place on that day as well. According to the Basra governor Mohammed al-Waili, one policeman was shot dead and another was injured.
When Iraqi police finally caught up with the car and forced the "Arab" looking men out, they were surprised to find out that the men were in disguise and that they were actually British citizens. This was surprising to the Iraqis in the city of Basra not only because of the false flag nature of the event but because the Iraqis in Basra and the British were working together. The British were actually training the Basra police force. The also found the following in the car: explosives, remote detonation device, rifles, fake bushy black wigs and turbans. The men were immediately arrested and placed in an Iraqi jail.
The news of these British agents arrest was made known to the British Commander of that area. Rather than have these men questioned to get the full story, the British “allies” broke down the jail with tanks and rushed the soldiers out.
Surely if these men were allowed to be questioned by the Iraqis much information would have came out. Also if they were not caught, there is no telling what kind of bombings they would have committed with their remote detonation devices, explosives, etc. especially on the large celebrating congregation of Shiites only to be reported by American media as another suicide bombing in Iraq. You can read more about this in more details and see pictures broadcasted by Iraqi TV stations of the arrested British agents at the following link:
This audio reference from the Taking Aim show "Caught – Staged Terror in Iraq" addresses the incident in great detail.
What is reported above is a small number of examples amongst the numerous examples of P2OG in action where Americans and their allies have been caught staging "suicide bombings" to have Muslims blamed for them. I am sure there are countless other instances where the Americans and their allies have not been caught. Most likely Americans in the US have received those staged suicide bombings in Iraq as news blaming Iraqis for them. Plan P2OG is a definite admission of America's guilt in committing terrorist acts to have Muslims blamed for them. The fact that Americans and their allies have been caught in the act is confirmation vindicating Muslims -- whose religion strongly condemns suicide. The false flag P2OG suicide bombings does not stop in Iraq. As mentioned earlier the plan is to implement P2OG in at least 80 countries. Outside of and before P2OG the Israelis have been caught committing numerous false flag terrorist actions to blame Muslims. Some have been very embarrassing to the Israeli government like the Lavon Affair. You can read more about these false flag operations at the following link:
Who benefits and what are the benefits gained by perpetuating the Islamic suicide bomber myth?
There are obvious benefits gained by perpetuating the myth of the Muslim suicide bomber. Those benefits serve nicely with those who are enemies of Islam. As in the 7/7/2005 London bombings, it perpetuates the propaganda that seeming innocent and decent Muslims are dangerous and prone to suicide. As such any Muslim is a potential terrorist simply because of what his religion teaches him. This benefit of demonize and destroy fits nicely with America’s war plans. When hundreds, thousands and even millions of Muslims are killed, as in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine, decent people who would normally be outraged and angry over the loss of so many innocent lives would feel no sadness and may even have happiness in their hearts. To them the lives of these countless Muslims becomes meaningless because in the average American mind they were terrorists and potential suicide bombers. In this day and age of open season attacks against Islam for war purposes, many benefits can be gained from the myth of the Muslim suicide bomber. The article, “The Myth of the Suicide Bomber” lists some of the benefits as follows:
Why are suicide bombings publicized before any proof is brought by investigation? For me these questions underline the illogical nature of suicide bombings. I believe to find logic you have to see the suicide bomber as a fabrication of the Zionists for their own purposes:
To demonize Islam
To make Muslims look stupid, fanatical, and murderous.
To create worldwide terrorism that they can claim has nothing to do with Israel, but everything to do with Islam.
To attack those who think themselves to be allies, but are not, e.g. America, Spain, Britain.
To shift the blame for any bombing Zionists perpetrate onto the Muslims, simply by calling it a suicide bombing.
To control public opinion in favor of Israel as the most grieved victim of terrorism.
To justify apartheid in Israel.
To justify war in the Middle East with the spoils of war accruing to themselves, while the costs are borne by their “allies”.
The Myth of the Suicide Bomber
Israel needs the suicide bomber myth partly to overcome the appearance of being the aggressor. Their military power makes them much more powerful than the Palestinians and their Arab neighbors. With the military and financial aid received from the U.S., Israel is ranked now as either the third or fourth most powerful military power in the world. They have been fighting a war against a civilian population for 60 years. Such disparity in military power makes the Israeli claims of being surrounded by hostile Arab forces bent on their destruction ludicrous.
The anti-colonial movements of the twentieth century have taught us to sympathize with the underdog in all uneven contests, but no matter how the Israelis have worked their holocaust story; they cannot appear as victims in their displacement of Palestinians. They have created a myth that, once again, attempts to recast Jews as victims in the eyes of the world. They want to be known as eternal victims and have recreated Hitler in the form of Muslim suicide bombers to terrorize them. The fact that they have been caught numerous times faking terrorist acts and "suicide bombings" to have Muslims blamed for them shows how desperate they really are to be seen as victims and underdogs to gather ignorant American support.
The benefit of “divide and conquer” can also be added to the above list especially for what we see happening in Iraq. What greater benefit can be gained by an invader of a country than to have the inhabitant’s focus of attacks taken off the invader and factions amongst the inhabitants focused on fighting each other? In Iraq the strategy has been to have the local inhabitants fight each other along ethnic and religious lines. Their goal is to have Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds fighting in the streets so that they can achieve their goal of dividing up the country along those differences. Strategically placed bombs killing untold numbers of people to be blamed on either Shiite or Sunni factions have been the method of the occupiers. Fortunately, in Iraq both Sunni and Shiite leadership is aware of these tactics.
In 2006, the Al-Askariya mosque in the city of Samarra was bombed and destroyed. It was built in 944, was over 1,000 years old, and was one of the most important Shi’ite mosques in the world. The great golden dome that covered it, which was built in 1904, was destroyed in the 2006 bombing, which was set off by men dressed as Iraqi Special Forces. The media tried to blame Sunnis for it so that Shias and Sunnis will fight each other. Ayotollah Sistani, the leading Shiite cleric announced:
“Let no Shia attack any Sunni. This is not the work of our Sunni brothers. It is the work of our common enemy who wants us divided.”
With both Sunni and Shia leadership working together, mass joint rallies were staged and both Sunnis and Shiites came together to rebuild the Golden Masjid.
The media’s role in perpetuating the “Islamic Suicide Bomber” Myth
What I wrote earlier about the Qur’an and Hadiths position on suicide and killing of innocents is not secret, esoteric knowledge. It is common knowledge, well known and can easily be accessed by anyone doing a very elementary study of the Islam. Yet what we have today is the knee jerk, unconscious association of the religion of Islam with suicide bombings. This is a cruel and ugly lie about Islam that has been so widely perpetuated that it is accepted as fact. Corrections to the association of Islam with suicide and the killing of innocents are not made in the media. Never do we read or hear anything from Islamic text being explained in the media about the true position of Islam regarding suicide. Instead Islam is glued even tighter by reporting that not a person disobeying Islam, but a Muslim imbued with Islamic religious fervor committed a suicide.
Looking at how the media reported the 7/7/2005 London bombings is interesting. They have made Islam to be so tightly wound up as a major factor that writers boldly wrote about how the 4 suicide bombers became more religious and how unlike rule #2 for how to commit suicide bombings, they did not say, "Allah-u-Akbar". The subliminal message is that becoming more involved with Islam is the cause for suicide bombings and it is expected for the suicide bomber to invoke Allah's name in this act. If he doesn't then something is wrong.
By using a prefix or suffix that ties these acts to the religion of Islam -- although it is well known that the religion of Islam strongly condemns those actions -- an ugly method of religious demonization is employed. If we were to report that Judaism's Israeli Defense Forces killed innocent children and has caused mass starvation and suffering of Palestinians in Gaza or Christian soldiers bombed numerous wedding parties killing innocents in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, then the prefix used with their names is tied into the crimes as well. Subliminally the association is made of Judaism and Christianity to crimes as the association is made today in the Western world with Islam to terrorism, suicide, etc.
The ones who control the media allowing the false and dangerous propaganda to be spewed are to blame. We need to find out who they are. That is easy because it has been done by many. Here are some references that will help identify them:
”There are no important media outlets in the US that are not owned or controlled by Jews.” — Israel Shamir
"One is inevitably led to believe that the success of the Jews has not been a mere coincidence. It resulted from long and arduous years of planning, which preceded their cunning control of the world's media. In a speech delivered in Prague in 1869, the Jewish Rabbi Yeshurun expressed this Jewish interest in the media, when he said: 'If gold is our first means to control the world, then the press should be our second one.'
"The first [Zionist] Congress, held in Basle in 1897, marked an ominous turning point, because the participants expressed their [desire] to implement a criminal plot to set up the State of 'Israel'. They unanimously agreed that, unless complete control over the media, and the press in particular, is achieved, unless they fully subdue the press, so as to deny their enemies even one medium of expression, and unless they themselves act as filters of information in society, such a state [Israel] would not reach fruition."
What is most significant about the above declarations is the following statement: ”unless they fully subdue the press, so as to deny their enemies even one medium of expression…”. Today ALL the major media from television to print media are owned by Zionist Jews. The ownership is so prevalent that even the grand nephew of the first Israeli Prime Minister runs CBS news. The above two links provide facts and statistics showing who the Zionist owners and people who run the media are.
People doing careful analysis of events happening in the world will probably come to different conclusions. Along with that, a historical presentation showing true causes and effects for events in the world will give readers more understanding and even turn some of today’s perceived demons into heroes. But other perspectives are not allowed and only main stream versions and interpretations by those presenting the news are allowed. The side of those who are victims of Israelis is never presented and those victims are shown by a dishonest media to be senseless animals that kill mercilessly for no reason. Of course their poor innocent victims are Israelis especially from suicide bombers. The ones who control the media control the narrative of events. They are the ones who inform the world about suicide bombers, etc. The ridiculousness of the obvious Israeli fake stories about suicide bombers is pointed out by Carol Valentine in her article “Tooth Fairies and Suicide Bombers”:
People, let's use our noggins. The suicide bombers are not what they seem to be.
Typically, stories about suicide bombers tell us that the bomber went to a public place such as a bus stop, market, restaurant, pool hall, etc., and blew himself/herself up along with one, two, or many Israelis.
Funny, they rarely hit military targets. I wonder why?
The general story line is that the bomber had explosives attached to his/her person. The story goes on to describe the carnage in grisly detail — dismembered bodies, etc. But, remarkably, the suicide bomber himself/herself is not blown to smithereens. The bomber's body is left in sufficiently good shape to be identified immediately, and of course the Israeli authorities do just that.
But even more remarkable: The Israelis come up with these nice portraits of the culprits. And what is most remarkable of all? Everything is coordinated, bombers ID'd, photos gathered, stories written — and published all over the world by the Zionist press — within a few hours or days after the event.
Why would a Palestinian bent on vengeance commit suicide? Far better to go to the bus stop, market, restaurant, pool hall, etc., with a shopping bag or backpack full of explosives, casually discard the package in some inconspicuous place, and leave. BOOM! Lots of Israelis die, and the bomber walks away to bomb another location next week. But no, we are asked to believe that the suicide bombers blow THEMSELVES up, too.
People must “ascertain the truth” for themselves…
We know who controls the media that is perpetuating the vicious lies about Islamic suicide bombers. They have a vested interest and the benefits are real and measurable for them as pointed out above. But what should be done by the average American who is interested in truth and not propaganda done for ulterior purposes? Also of great importance and little known to Americans is the latest ruling in a media lawsuit brought against FOX news to the Florida Court of Appeals. After a lengthy court case the final Florida Appeals court ruling shockingly stated: "under the First Amendment, broadcasters have the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on public airwaves. Under the current ruling, it is up to the public to discover whether or not they are being lied to."
There are no rules against falsifying and distorting news in the US. The article titled The Media Can Legally Lie details the case against FOX news that was brought to the Florida Appeals court by ex-FOX employees who were fired by FOX as a result of their refusing to broadcast false reports as ordered. The case was of great interest to all major news broadcasters as the outcome would also affect them and it ended up with the ruling above making it legal for news media to lie.
The answer regarding what can be done to get truthful news that is not laden with propaganda becomes the responsibility of each individual. For Muslims the guidance is clear and the same guidance is also true for all right minded people. Our Qur’an tells us in no uncertain terms the following:
49.006. O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done.
Let’s ascertain the truth and when the truth becomes known, let’s challenge the media false reports with truth. We cannot blindly believe whatever the media reports about other Muslims. Muslims must do their due diligence, scrutinize and research reports of suicide in Muslim countries to arrive at truth. We should not believe news brought to us by a wicked person without first verifying that it is true. We must defend our religion against the vicious Islamic suicide bomber lies that are ugly attempts to demonize all Muslims. When this is done and truth be known, lets’ do all within our power to disseminate it!
