I have written several posts explaining the Western myth of Islamic Al-Qaeda, which was created by CIA and Mossad to demonize Islamic religion and Muslims many years before the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States.
Since then this Al-Qaeda myth has been applied by the pro-Israel imperialists to invade Muslim lands, such as, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Syria, to name a few. This myth has also become a handy-tool for other anti-Muslim colonial powers like Russia, China and France to keep their imperial grips over occupied Muslim lands. Read here, here, here, here, here and here.
So why am I wasting my time on this rotten Zionist-created terrorist organization, which is reported everywhere, but in reality doesn’t exist anywhere? By now, we all know about the Zionist-Jewish mafia that drove the United States into a $6 trillion war in Afghanistan and Iraq to kill the so-called “Al-Qaeda Islamic threat” to Israel and American interests in the Muslim world. Now, the same ‘Exis of Evil’ is calling upon Obama administration to arm and fund the Al-Qaeda to fight Bashar al-Assad, Hizbullah and Nouri al-Maliki.
Eric Margolis is a US-Canadian syndicated columnist, author and blogger. He fought in Vietnam War and worked as war correspondent for the dialy Toronto Sun in a dozen foreign war-torn nations including Afghanistan and Iraq. On January 11, 2014, Margolis posted the following article, titled, ‘RETURN OF AL-QAEDA':
How did al-Qaida, a tiny anti-Communist group in Afghanistan that had no more than 200 active members in 2001 become a supposed worldwide threat?
How can al-Qaida be all over the Mideast, North Africa, and now much of black Africa? This after the US spent over $1 trillion trying to stamp out al-Qaida in Afghanistan and Pakistan?
The answer is simple. As an organization and threat, al-Qaida barely exists. But as a name, al-Qaida and “terrorism” have become the west’s handy universal term for armed groups fighting western influence, corruption or repression in Asia and Africa. Al-Qaida is nowhere – but everywhere.
If you’re a rebel group seeking publicity, the fastest way is by pledging allegiance to the shadowy, nowhere al-Qaida.
Thanks to the magic of mass media manipulation, Washington was able to divert attention from all of the Sunni resistance groups – or “terrorists” as they were branded – to a single group of cutthroats led by a mysterious, renegade Jordanian, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The rest of the resistance groups simply vanished from our view.
Mention of the al-Qaida buzz-word has sent America’s conservative Republicans and neoconservatives into a frenzy. They are demanding that the Obama administration do something. Maybe re-invade Iraq? There are some 10,000 US combat troops just down the road in Kuwait.
Speaking of Afghanistan, former Pentagon chief Leon Panetta admitted that there were no more than 25 to 50 al-Qaida members in Afghanistan. But now, al-Qaida has popped up in Pakistan, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, across North Africa, Nigeria, Mali, Central African Republic, and so on. Somalia’s anti-western resistance group, Shebab, is also branded “al-Qaida linked.”
Branding your foes “terrorists” is a fine way of de-legitimizing them and denying them any political or humanitarian rights. Israel did this very effectively with the hapless Palestinians, who foolishly cooperated by bombing civilians.
Egypt offers another grim example of propaganda becoming fact. The majority of its people who voted for a democratic government in a fair election and its leaders are now condemned as “terrorists” by the thuggish generals who overthrew the legitimate government in Cairo. Anyone daring to oppose the US and Saudi-backed military junta is a “terrorist.” They must drive terrorist cars, eat terrorist food, and have terrorist babies. Read the rest of article here.
