Speakers at the General Assembly's 6th Committee raised the issue of causation, invoking unstated false premises:
- International terrorism can be eliminated by removing a few root causes.
- The root causes of international terrorism do not include ideology.
combat terrorism is limited to reactions to terrorism and its symptoms, rather than
discussing and addressing its root causes and eliminating the factors that feed it. For
international efforts to eliminate terrorism to succeed, it is imperative to address its
root causes, as recognized by the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy,
and the relevant resolutions of the Security Council. This includes several aspects,
including improving the living conditions of the poor and unemployed youth and
people living under political and historical oppression and foreign occupation. We
must also prevent the incitement to hatred, including incitement to violence and
hatred of minorities of ethnic groups, religions and foreigners. In this connection, we
note that attempts to link terrorism with any particular religion or a particular ethnic
group are themselves provocative and contributes to the spread of terrorism.
poverty & unemploymentYeah, that's the ticket! Usama bin Ladin formed al-Qaeda because he was impoverished and unemployed. A construction engineer with inherited wealth, bin Ladin was motivated by something else, not poverty.
political and historical oppressionWere the medical, law & engineering students who were studying in European universities motivated to mount terrorist acts by oppression? Were they oppressed by the European nations they attacked or were they oppressed by dictatorships in Arabia & Asia?
foreign occupationExactly what foreign nation was America occupying & oppressing September 11,2001? We were protecting Kuwait & Saudi Arabia from invasion and enforcing UN resolutions in Iraq, we were not engaged in occupation & oppression.
link terrorism with any particular religionI provoke terrorism by publicizing the fact that Islamic terrorism flows directly from Islamic doctrines enshrined in the Qur'an & exemplified by Moe's sunnah. Yeah, right. "We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve", "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved", "deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind ", "to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah", "Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.", "Indeed, you strike more terror in their hearts than their fear of God". "Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey." "I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy)" Lets strip off the chaff and review what Allah & Moe said.
- I will cast terror
- to strike terror
- Allah cast terror
- you strike more terror
- victorious with terror
(nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers), by strategies of war that would terrify their enemy,
(nor inflict), a defeat on the enemy,
(but is written to their credit) as compensation for these steps that are not under their control, but a consequence of performing good deeds that earn them tremendous rewards,
Focus on the most significant elements again:
- Exactly what part of 9:120 do you not comprehend?
- raise the anger of disbelievers
- enrages the disbelievers
- good deeds that earn them tremendous rewards
- a defeat on the enemy
- slaughter, capture or plunder
- righteous deed is therefore recorded for them
- Do Allah's words and Moe's bragging match up in a congruent pattern or not?
- I will cast terror
- strike fear
- strike terror
- Allah cast terror
- you are more of a terror
- victorious with terror.
- What do these ayat have in common?
- so that they may take admonition
- so that they may be admonished
- will always be aware of the threat of your power
- so that they take a lesson
- So learn a lesson, O ye who have eyes!
- take warning, then, O ye with eyes (to see)!
- Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into
the opponent's heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be
achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet
and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon
the enemy; it is me decision we wish to impose upon him. Terror cannot be struck into the hearts of an army by merely
cutting its lines of communication or depriving it of its routes
of withdrawal. It is basically related to the strength or weakness
of the human soul. It can be instilled only if the opponent's
Faith is destroyed. Psychological dislocation is temporary;
spiritual dislocation is permanent. Psychological dislocation can be
produced by a physical act but this does not hold good of the
spiritual dislocation. To instill terror into the hearts of the enemy,
it is essential. in the ultimate analysis, to dislocate his Faith. An
invincible Faith is immune to terror. A weak Faith offers inroads
to terror. The Faith conferred upon us by the Holy Qur'an has
the inherent strength to ward off terror from us and to enable
us to strike terror into the enemy. Whatever the form or type of
strategy directed against the enemy, it must, in order to be effective,
be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy. A strategy
that fails to attain this condition suffers from inherent drawbacks
and weaknesses; and should be reviewed and modified. This rule
is fully applicable to nuclear as well as conventional wars. It is
equally true of the strategy of nuclear deterrence in fashion
today. To be credible and effective, the strategy of deterrence
must be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy.
If the first sentence in the quote from page 59 of The Qur'anic Concept of war did not clue you in, you should do the world a favor by removing yourself from the gene pool; you are too stupid to reproduce, much less vote.
