Hillary Calls For War On Islamic State, Not On Muslims – OpEd

By

As American politicians across the bipartisan line are looking for issues to beat one another in debates, the terror attacks in France and Turkey provided the necessary input for in-party discussions in Democratic and Republican parties. Recently Democratic Party presidential hopefuls debated the attacks in Paris.

The Democratic Party presidential candidate with hopes of becoming the custodian of the White House to succeed Obama next year, the former US foreign minister (secretary of state) Hillary Clinton called for distinguishing Muslims from terrorists and sought global unity to crush the Islamic State, as the carnage in Paris took center stage at the Democratic presidential debate on 14th November.

The three candidates, Mrs. Clinton, liberal US Senator Bernie Sanders and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley began their debate, bringing Friday’s horrific attacks an Paris to the forefront of the 2016 race for presidency as they dominated the first half hour of the political showdown. They united in calling for the destruction of the jihadists accused of massacring at least 129 people in the French capital.

It needs to be mentioned here that the terror attacks on France and turkey took place following the overt recognition of Osama bin Laden as hero by former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf who has been a close ally of US Bushdom forces in attacking and occupying neighboring Afghanistan. The NATO-USA fights all so-called fundamentalist extremisms to protect their hidden capitalist-imperialist agenda and considers the praises showered on Osama by General Musharraf as expose of all US secret goals. What Musharraf said in effect reveal the illegal use and assassination of Osama.

The terror attacks in France, as well as Turkey, put the terror gear in reverse, giving prominence to the destructive character of terrorism – almost de-recognizing Osama bin Laden as a hero. Obviously, US-NATO wants to show Osama as a terrorist in action, the most powerful force on earth.

O’Malley said: ‘Let’s not fall into the trap of thinking our Muslim-American neighbors… are the enemy’. Former Florida governor and Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush spoke up from afar during the debate: ‘Yes, we are at war with radical Islamic terrorism.’ Hillary Clinton made it clear: ‘We are not at war with Islam’, choosing her words with care as she warned ordinary Muslims should not be viewed as a threat. ‘We are at war with violent extremism. Hillary called for global resolve to defeat ISIS, ‘a barbaric, ruthless, violent jihadist terrorist group.’

Madam Clinton’s latest “love” for Muslims looks funny because she was the person who along with Obama had planned for terror attack on Libya in order to assassinate its president Col. Qaddafi who ruled the nation by helping the poor as well without taking any IMF loans, and loots its vast energy resources. US forces killed innocent Muslims in order to kill and destabilize North African state Libya.

Relatively hawkish Clinton, self-described democratic socialist Sanders and low-polling O’Malley took the stage in Des Moines, Iowa for their second Democratic showdown in the 2016 primary cycle. With 79 days before the first state-wide vote in Iowa, frontrunner Clinton has reinforced her status as the woman to beat in the race. Her poll numbers have risen steadily since mid September, to more than 54 percent today according to a RealClearPolitics average. Sanders is at 33 percent, while O’Malley is languishing at three percent. Her “concern” for Muslims, however, is important for the oppressed and terrorized Muslims globally.

But Sanders stood his ground, arguing that the Iraq war, which then-senator Clinton voted to authorize in 2002, laid the foundation for the surging jihadist threat that once more sowed carnage on Friday. ‘I would argue that the disastrous invasion of Iraq, something that I strongly opposed, has unraveled the region completely and led to the rise of Al-Qaeda and to ISIS,’ Sanders said. The Iraq war, he repeated, ‘was one of the worst foreign policy blunders in the modern history of the United States.’

Mrs. Clinton also said she had a ‘very aggressive plan’ to rein in Wall Street’s big banks.

But Sanders shot back with a blunt message — ‘Not good enough’ — and essentially challenged Clinton to disavow much of her connections to Wall Street millionaires who back her campaign.

Corporates and arms-oil mafias in USA support both Republican and Democratic campaigns so that whosoever win would be backing them. The establishment candidates like Clinton would be in debt to Wall Street supporters.

Western media lords who shield state crimes being committed by US-NATO forces across the globe wherever they occupy, quickly claimed that the Islamic State (ISIS or IS) claimed responsibility for the coordinated attacks on a Paris concert hall, restaurants and bars, and outside France’s national stadium — even calling it retribution for French air strikes in Syria.

US super power with mightiest military forces, obviously with tacit understating with Russia that had occupied the nation of brave Afghans during Cold war caused modern terror era in the world by attacking and invading an Islamizing Afghanistan in 2001 on the pretext of one Osama, who was claimed to have taken off three US planes simultaneously to hit some important locations, including WTC, hiding there with government protection. American lies are truth, they say. With another illegal attack on oil rich Iraq in 2003, Americans and NATO have perfected the art of state terrorism, killing Muslims possibly to reduce Muslim populations, Indian regime keep complaining of false rise Muslim population in the country, through the rate growth of Hindu population has been on the rise for years now, making India catch up with the Chinese population for some political reasons.

All veto members of the discredited UNSC obviously are fully aware of the secret operations to terrorize the humanity.

Western media lords and their subordinates in the Eastern world, however, have refused reveal the truth about the motives of terror attacks and the sources of ISIS acceptance of ‘guilt”. Who by person and why should the ISIS claim responsibility of Paris attack is a puzzle which would never be revealed by the media since intelligences regulating all core media outlets globally do not do thing that their government desire. Generally the NATO and USA do not declare the real cause of their terror attacks but only bluff about some problems in order to achieve their objective of destabilizing Islamic world.

With all the talk of battling the jihadist wave, the Democrats, including Clinton, on stage refused to use the term ‘radical Islam,’ which moderators used in the debate — and Republicans in the presidential race have used throughout the campaign — to describe the France scourge.

France and Turkey where terror attacks took place, killing hundreds, are parts of the dreadful organization called NATO that terrorizes the humanity with its war threats on behalf of its leader – the USA.

It appears, NATO operates on two premises, one as official western state terror organization and two as powerful secret terror organization operating in the guises of strong Islamic terror groups like Taliban, Al-Qaeda and ISIS. Many more such so-called “Islamic fundamentalist” organizations are expected to pop up in future too. This means, both France and Turkey – the targets of latest terror experiments – are fully aware of the NATO plans. All such terror attacks are essentially meant for terrorizing the humanity, especially the global Muslims. The only sources that could reveal the facts in due time, the WikiLeaks and its owner Julian Assange are in trouble from Australian and western powers that feel threatened by regular WikiLeaks exposing all secret state plans.

Humanity still hopes to know the whole truth about terrorism one day.

What would Hillary Clinton, if elected to White house, do for Muslims in the country and globally – whether she would continue the Neocons policies of showcasing US military prowess by attacking Muslim nations and killing innocent Muslims as the US rulers have done systematically so far to bully the energy rich Arab and central Asian nations or she would stand to protect them as one of her prime duties as global leader – remains to be seen!

After all, statesmanship is not a propaganda tool or mere rhetoric stuff.

    Bernie is the great modern time politician in the USA. He is sharp, intelligent, and able to distinguish between the crucial and trivial point. He gives a short statement but full of knowledge. He is way above than others. When he goes after Iraq war and considers it as blunder Mr. Bernie Sanders is right on the money. Iraq war has created terrorism and sectarian violence. Most of the people affected are Arabs. Europeans and Americans have lost a small percentage of the total killed to terrorism. In addition, Drone bombing has killed a few terrorists, and most of people killed were innocent men, women, children, and babies. Drone bombing is also essential component of state terrorism practiced against Muslims. Senator Bernie Sanders will not practice such a policy; given he has no Noble Prize in peace. All other presidential Republican and Democratic candidates will do the same as President Obama has done. Actually, they may do more killing. Mrs. Clinton has less tendency to kill and will apply President Clinton economic and noneconomic policies. The rest of her talk is just a diplomatic way to win nomination and election. She will defend Israel strongly as President Bush did. Mr. Ben Carson and Senator Rubio, and because they are so weak on foreign policy, would like to show that they are strong by just dropping bombs on innocent people who cannot defend themselves. Both of them are not going to fight Iran, Russia, and Daesh. They will kill innocent Muslims after calling them terrorists. I am sure both will kill Americans on the streets of Baltimore and Chicago by invoking national security. Senator Rubio, and I am sure Ben Carson likes the idea, thinks that there are terrorists because American women go to schools and drive cars. This light weight joke thinks that Muslims do not send their women to school or allow them women to drive cars. He and Mr. Carson think Muslim ride camels only and cannot be presidents of USA. Both do not know that there are Muslim women know foreign policy better than them and even pay taxes and spend money out of their pockets. Senator Robio is taking daily lessons from some Israel’s supporters on foreign policy, thinking that he knows the subject very well. All these candidates except Senator Bernie Sanders the great have no knowledge and this is the reason they are against Islam and Muslims. They are against black people and Mexicans as well. It is really very bad to be a black Muslim under a Republican president. I would recommend that Senators Bernie Sanders and Rand Paul become one ticket for the US top positions. This is very difficult to realize but it will be the best ticket for American prosperity. The country will have excellent domestic policies serving all people and optimal peaceful foreign policy that saves trillions of dollars for Americans. Finally, I did not talk about Jeb Bush and others because they have less than 6 percent in the national poll.
