…USING WRONG WEAPONS AND METHODS TO FIGHT TERRORISM AND EXPOSING THEIR OWN STUPIDITY AND RUTHLESSNESS. – PART I.
By Mansor Puteh.
TERRORISM WAS A WESTERN INVENTION CREATED BY THE CATHOLIC AND CHRISTIAN COUNTRIES OF
AND EUROPE, WHICH EMBARKED ON THEIR RUTHLESS AND
SENSELESS ‘JOURNEY OF HOPE’ IN THE FOURTEENTH CENTURY TO INVADE COUNTRIES AND TO
DESTROY THEIR COLORFUL AND PEACEFUL CIVILIZATIONS.
It is at times like these that we want to return to
during the time of President John F Kennedy. America
One could go in and out of America with so much ease but not to the Soviet Union or the Communist bloc countries where one cannot move anywhere without being watched and trailed.
The American embassies could organize cultural and artistic functions without fearing about its security.
How times have indeed change, for the worse for
is also not for the better for the Russians, too, the two so-called superpowers
who have lost their way. America
It’s not making it any easier and better for
some countries which are allied with it, the more they over-react; the more
they do things which are considered universally as uncivilized and totally
It’s not that they are in good shape economically, but politically as well. Their credibility is at stake, if they still this is important to them.
The rest of the world is watching.
Now one dreads going anywhere near them in the fortified enclaves with many security personnel and equipments.
I remember going to their open counter at the AIA Building in Jalan Ampang without being frisked or asked to declare my presence and identity or to leave any electronic gadget on the main entrance on the ground floor, and getting to see their staff when I had to apply for my student visa to study at a university in New York City in the late 1970s.
Now, one cannot be sure if one can get a visa, even if one is offered a place to study anywhere in the country, or to travel there as a tourist. Even then, one can still be barred from entering the country after landing at the airport after flying for more than 24 hours and spending a bit on the return tickets and other personal expenses.
The reverse has happened when one fears going to
to the former Communist countries. America
It is a wise decision to find faults with 1.5 billion Muslims while protecting the well-being of only six million of another group of people?
Now they can’t even sit pretty and speak loudly in fancy cafes outside of
And we only have Barack Hussein Obama, which is good enough – a Black-White reincarnation of him who seems to be quite aware of America’s own follies and foibles to take his country back to the type of civilization that we know of and want to care for and admit that terrorism can be caused by countries that claim to be the true champions and defenders of democracy more than those who do not.
The future is bleak for those who had caused untold damage to democracy and world peace; they are safe for now. They can be condemned in the World Court of Public Opinion, New World Literature and New World Cinema with America and the west being turned upside down so they can get to see a better view of the whole world which they had all taken for granted for so long.
Terrorism was introduced to the Muslim World or to some Muslims, and the world at large by countries which claim to be the champions and defenders of democracy, so that they can create the cycle of confusion for which they can think they can benefit from.
It was never in the thinking and action of the Muslims whose countries have been destroyed, pillaged and plundered by the invaders from the west for centuries with many of them killed and maimed.
I may be a filmmaker by training, but my trek to 33 countries around the world over the last few decades, to attend film festivals, seminars and forums and to search for interesting stories for my books and screenplays, had allowed me to see more things that the ordinary Americans could not especially if they try to read the minds of the Muslims and putting them into two groups, Muslims whom they consider to be moderates and extremists.
What’s wrong in being an extremist, if one is extremely kind; and what good in being a moderate if one is moderately evil?
I’m afraid the Americans and English, who use such terms, do not understand the English language well. They do it in their haste to brand those who are innocent while trying to promote themselves as the New Saviors of the
Old World that they had lost
So no wonder they are lost in their own thoughts and actions which have caused untold miseries to the Muslims who are now their favorite punching bag, after the Soviet Communists had been tamed – courtesy of some Muslim and Afghan warriors.
These groups are really not mentioned in the Holy Quran. So don’t blame Islam for the work of a small group of individuals who claim to profess the Islamic faith. Blame it on the biases and prejudices of those who are bent on blaming Islam. This is what is it is all about.
It is therefore, something that was invented by the less fertile minds of some Orientalists or indecent intellectuals for pure expedience; mostly to reflect their personal biases, prejudices and even abhorrence that the Muslim World does not wish to compete with the West; for the Muslims have our own different sets of goals to achieve.
Most Americans or westerners won’t know who Muslims are anymore these days from the way they look and from their names. There are more and more Muslims who also have English and other ‘strange’ sounding names, mine included and doing things that their parents could never dream of.
