Below is my response to a dear friend of mine who sent me an anonymous "broadcast" type email. That email was about how Muslims seem to be happy only in non-Muslim countries, and totally unhappy in Muslim countries. The author laced the piece with numerous bits of sarcastic humor as to why that was [supposedly] true in each case. Even though it was ridiculous, my bizarre sense of humor did find it funny. My response---
That is funny! On the serious side, here's why they're "happy" in non-Muslim countries---
The U.S. Gov't (& often the U.K. Gov't as well) is not bombing them in non-Muslim countries. Their beloved grandmothers are not being blown to bits by a drone strike in non-Muslim countries, like they are in a country that's not even at war with the USA (Pakistan). I've seen numerous interviews on Democracy Now with Pakistani victims and/or bystanders whose relatives have been killed by drone strikes. Your tax dollars have killed over 1400 innocent civilians in Pakistan alone.
The so-called "War on Terror" (a term not even used anymore) could easily be over--- all the Fed Gov't would have to do is pull out of Muslim countries, stop bombing them, stop attacking SUSPECTS with drone strikes, stop supporting Muslim dictatorships (like Egypt & Saudi Arabia), and let the proper agencies handle any further terrorist incidents---law enforcement agencies. Soldiers are not trained to be cops, & shouldn't be expected to do that job.
It's a myth that most Muslims are trying to take over the world...propaganda put out by Oligarchs. The tiny radical element in Islam that might be trying that has been trying for about 1400 yrs. Apparently they aren't very good at it. The Oligarchy will never let them succeed. They don't have a prayer (no pun intended:).
The Oligarchs in the USA and their wholly owned subsidiary, the Fed Gov't, use the Muslim thing simply to keep Perpetual War going. It's good for BIG Business (less than 1% of Business), and it keeps the "bewildered herd", the "little people", and the "ignorant masses" (what Oligarchs refer to the rest of us as) under control.
You don't really believe that some average joe or jane sat around & composed that piece, do you? I admit, it's certainly possible that happened, but it's more likely that is propaganda concocted by some subgroup working for some "Public Relations" firm that was hired by some "Nonprofit" outfit of Oligarchs, probably all of them in some particular industry. Just my guess. The point of it is to keep the "bewildered herd" continually mad at or fed up with (or both) some designated "boogie-man" group. So, then, when a few fanatics from that overall group blow something up in the name of "The Almighty Whoever", it's easier to convince the "little people" or "ignorant masses" that the U.S. must spend military blood, and treasure we don't have, on bombing some country and killing hundreds of thousands of their sovereign citizens. No wonder the Muslims are pissed off AND want to live in Western countries.
Our biggest Arab ally in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia (a dictatorship), sponsors the most radical, fundamentalist, fanatic sect of Islam in the world (Wahhabism, the Wahhabi Sect) as a State Religion. The Wahhabis spread their extremism all around the globe. Ask yourself why our Fed Gov't has the Saudis as an ally. The answer is much more than oil...or business ties to the Bush family.
Once again, none of the above is any kind of "conspiracy".
Partly just my opinion. Be Well
