Islamic Terrorism And Counter Terrorism - New Twists And Turns

Politics / Religion Jan 09, 2015 - 02:39 PM GMT

By: Dr_R_M_Mathew


The latest Paris Murder at the office of Charlie Hebdo was a strategic and well-articulated move to give lasting lessons to the enemies of Islam or the Non-believers by the Islamic Terrorist outfit so as to mobilize the sympathy or support of the Muslims all over the world. It has got wide coverage in all medias, Islamic, Anti-Islamic and Secular. Undoubtedly, it has great propaganda value for the Muslim Fundamentalists to create fear in the mind of the people, especially intellectuals and media persons who are criticizing Islam. They are in shock. But it is only a beginning of a new dreadful chapter with greater intensity and impacts.

The Old Story

Till recently, Terrorism has been the exclusive domain or the privilege of some fundamentalists, championed mainly by some Islamic organizations, giving the space for the moderate Muslims to denounce it. And the Counter Terrorism has been the concern of the various government organizations not only in the west, but also even in Muslim countries. In this game, the innocent citizens, are the victims or the looser. The greatest victims of Terrorism are Muslims, poor Muslims in Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and etc. even though Terrorism has been identified with Islam by an articulated strategy.

Terrorism and Islam

Though truly religious and practicing Muslims are not all terrorists , they are even the advocates of Peace and Tolerance. With the end of the Cold War or the collapse of the USSR, the defense industry all over the world had met with a crisis. Non-Muslim strategic researchers who are through with Koran and Islamic teachings realized the great potentiality of Islam (citing Koran and other Islamic teachings) in exploiting Islamic Fundamentalism for spearheading Terrorism among Muslims all over the world and thereby saving the Defense Industry by creating sustained market for weapons.

Marketing Strategy of Weapons Traders

As strategy, by the end of 1980s, pumping billions of dollars, Koranic and Islamic Research Centers, had been set up both in the west and the Islamic world,  recruiting Islamic Scholars, including  fire band Muslim clerics having wide influence or social contacts to promote Islamic Fundamentalism. It was found that Islamic Fundamentalism can easily be transformed into Islamic Terrorism. The relevant parts or portions of Koran and other Islamic Teachings have widely been cited to promote, champion and justify the causes of Islamic Terrorism.

Certain young Muslims, including brilliant and academically sound Muslim youth have been identified  and programmed to spread Islamic Fundamentalism offering wine, money, women and weapons lavishly; web sites have been launched; hundreds of new Muslim Organizations championing social causes have been set up to influence the common Muslims. Hardcore criminals, young people with suicide mania and youth seeking thrill or pleasure in murder and annihilation have been identified and converted to Islam from Non-Muslim countries, including the west. The new flow of conversions to Islam have  been celebrated by the simple minded Muslims all over the world as the victory of Islam, without knowing the fact that some of the newly converted are the well trained spies and terrorists to make Islam malignant without any cure.

Since 2005, virtually, the entire Islamic world have been brought under the grip of the New Brand of Muslims who could effectively sidetrack or silence the Moderate or Peace-loving Muslims by threats or money power or muscle power and equate Islam with Terror, without the knowledge or involvement of over ninety per cent Muslims, mainly due to the widely prevailing illiteracy and fear of questioning the religious authority.

A series of well-articulated terror attacks having the greatest news value have been launched in selected pockets of almost all countries by professionally trained terrorists or mercenaries so as to force almost all countries to multiply their  defense orders for sophisticated weapons, new training programs, new surveillance and communications systems several  folds, worth Billions. Now defense industry has emerged as the high growth and high profit entity thanks to Islamic Terrorism, originally created to block the advances of the then USSR in Afghanistan and other Muslim countries.

The Greatest Threat

Beyond the expectation or even the control of the defense industry and military strategists and even Muslim Fundamentalists in almost all countries, Islamic Terrorism ( though nothing to do with Islam) has emerged as the greatest threat of the Humanity, beyond the control of Islam other than just condemning it as "barbaric" or " the act of cowards".  . Now nobody can effectively prevent or control the spread of Islamic Terrorism, including the genuine or practicing Muslims.

The New Formula

A new equation or formula has been emerging based on the question of Islamic Terrorism vs. the Rest of the World. It has been proved that the counter-terrorist programs launched by the Governmental agencies in all over the world besides the  Christianity and all other religions, secular political parties and international agencies have become totally ineffective that offers new avenues and possibilities for the Neo-Fascism and its worldwide spread and acceptance.

Neo-Fascism to Counter Islamic Terrorism

“Terror can be dealt only with higher dose of terror and not with sermons or the usual judicial or criminal procedures of the governments”,  is the basic theory or ideology of the Neo-Fascism that projects as the defender or the savior of the humanity from Islamic Terrorism. Neo-Fascism in different names or brands has been spreading in almost all countries capable of becoming deadliest than the deadly Islamic Terror Groups or Outfits. They are capable of launching a series of terror attacks everywhere in the world, even with the support of the infiltrates working in almost all Islamic Terrorist and Fundamentalist Organizations. In this game also the greatest victims will be the innocent and poor Muslims.

History will be Repeated

It must be noted that Fascism in Germany under the leadership of Adolf Hitler was emerged during the end 1920s, when Germany was troubled with the most militant German Communist Party was most powerful besides having the highest number of membership, with series of strikes and violence unleashed.  Hitler applied higher doses of violence against all leaders and most active communist party members with his gangs, that too with the full backing of rich and powerful industrialists and businessmen. He could virtually wiped out Communism from Germany.

Neo-Fascist Strategy

The strategy that Adolf Hitler had effectively implemented in Germany will be employed by the Neo-Fascists in  more aggressive ways, not only in Germany but in almost all countries where the people are well aware of the gravity of the threats of Islamic Terrorism that too with the backing and support of the rest of the world, with more sophisticated strategies and higher doses of violence. Their impacts will be severe and unimaginable with a possibility of using nuclear weapons and biological or chemical warfare for mass extermination. The latest incidents in France, besides the continuing atrocities in the Islamic State and Nigeria are capable of pouring fuel in the fire. At any moment, it may explode.

Role of the Religions and International Community 

It is high time for all the world religions, including Islam and the international community, besides intellectuals, academics, writers, school teachers and women's organizations to launch a series of mass awareness and education programs against all forms of Fundamentalism and Terrorism; developing the watching and reporting  mechanism for the socially deviant  behavior or  ideology of youth so as to provide the effective counseling or corrective measures. The entire humanity must be made aware of the danger or threats of Religious or Non-religious Fundamentalism and Terrorism. Global strategies must be launched to eliminate Terrorism and Fundamentalism.
