Islam Really the Greatest Threat to the World Today? -

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most
Recently the former British Prime Minister, Tony
Blair, in an interview, asserted that “radical Islam”
was the greatest threat to the world today. However,
the term “radical Islam” is a comparatively recent
phrase coined by the enemies of Islam to vilify
Muslims seeking to organize themselves and live
according to the edicts of Islam. After the defeat of
European Crusaders at the hands of Muslim armies in
Palestine, the European powers realized that they
could never succeed in capturing and retaining any
Muslims lands unless they distort the principles of
Islam. Therefore, when European powers embarked on
their aggressive colonial conquests, they did not only
snatched these lands from the Muslims but also
concocted a complicated and malevolent plan to distort
the religion of Islam:
Firstly, they tried to dilute the concept of Jihad in
Secondly, they introduced the European notion of
separation of politics and religion.
Thirdly, they abolished all Islamic laws and replaced
them with man-made laws. The colonialists were aided
in their plans by some hypocrites and heretics who,
being enticed by worldly gains, actively supported the
European powers in their designs against Islam.
The enemies of Islam succeeded in their plans to such
an extent that today, ours enemies can call any Muslim
recognizing the validity and importance of these three
aspects, as radicals and the whole world, including
some simple-minded Muslims, actually believe their
propaganda. This brief historical summary is being
provided to clarify any misgivings that an average
reader might have about the comments of the former
British Prime Minister.
As for his comments that “radical Islam” is the
biggest threat to the world today; to call it a lie,
would be an understatement. Tony Blair said that
radical Islamists believed themselves to be justified
in the use of chemical, biological, and nuclear
weapons. To our understanding, no Muslim country has
ever been associated with the use of nuclear weapons,
the only two nuclear weapons that were used against
civilian populations were those of Hiroshima and
Nagasaki in Japan, and both of those crimes against
humanity were carried out by Americans.
Even today, the U.S. and its coalition allies continue
to use uranium-depleted weapons against innocent
civilians in Afghanistan. Muslims were not the ones
who invented or used chemical and biological weapons
in conventional (or unconventional) warfare.
The first deliberate large-scale use of chemical and
biological weapons occurred in World War I, where all
the warring parties were European powers. Muslims do
not stock-pile large quantities of chemical,
biological, and nuclear weapons. The only countries
who have them are the very same ones that call
themselves the defenders of world peace.
Their refusal to disarm their nuclear weapons, while
denying other countries the same measure of security
poses the biggest threat to world peace today. When
confronted with the hypothesis that Chechens,
Kashmiris, Palestinians, Iraqis and Afghans were
resisting foreign occupations of their lands, Tony
Blair, who has always been a man of more form than
substance, could not answer in any meaningful way, and
simply resorted to typical British rhetoric calling
our entire way of life “regressive, wicked, and
We are no more regressive than Tony Blair with his
nostalgic thinking of when Britain actually was a
power that mattered. We are no more wicked than Tony
Blair who continues to justify his decision to invade
Iraq without any legal pretext and despite the fact
that no weapons of mass destruction were ever found in
Iraq. And we are no more backward-looking than Britain
whose very way of life is based on what they received
from us and Roman way of life.
For over two centuries, Western powers have been
plundering the resources of Muslim lands and murdering
its inhabitants with impunity. Their aggressions
against the Muslim populations have continued unabated
until now. The discovery of vast natural resources and
the strategic importance of the regions have reignited
the greed of the Westerners seeking to further pillage
The Muslim populations of these regions have been
denied basic freedoms and their right to live
according to their religion. This is why Western
powers are so alarmed by this trend of Muslims
returning to their religion and living according to
its dictates. People like Tony Blair know that Islam
is the only viable force in the world capable of
thwarting their colonial ambitions in the region.
It was largely due to this Islamphobia that, when the
Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan was established, the
Western powers were so quick in condemning it, and
were looking for any pretext to destroy this
legitimate government. The attacks on the twin towers
were just the excuse the enemies were looking for to
try and destroy our religion once and for all.
The United States began their invasions of Muslims
lands on nothing more than unproven speculation. The
evidence they presented was mere circumstantial
conjecture barely admissible in any legal tribunal. In
one of the most ghastly acts in international law, the
United Nations Security Council actually sanctified
the invasion of Afghanistan without asking for any
kind of proof linking any attacks on foreign nations
by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
The very least the United Nations could have done was
to verify the truth or falsity of the evidence
presented by the United States, and negotiate with the
Islamic Emirate to set up a tribunal to give the
accused culprits a fair trial under Sharia Law.
Instead, the Western forces began a policy of blatant
violations of international norms and customs, while
the United Nations and other so called champions of
human rights remained muted.
The truth is that the actions America, in concert with
Britain (at the time led by Tony Blair), took have
proven to be the greatest threat to the world today.
They have invaded and violated the sovereignty of
dozens of Muslims countries around the world. They
have killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people
in Afghanistan, Iraq and other Muslim countries.
They have taken innocent civilians off our streets and
subjected them to the most grotesque forms of torture
in Abu Ghuraib, Bagram and Guantanamo prisons. They
have openly burned our Quran, and perpetrated an act
of desecration by drawing cartoons of our Holy Prophet
(Peace Be Upon Him), and called our religion a threat
to world peace.
They continue to bombard innocent Afghan civilians
under the most unprovoked circumstances. And to top it
all, they brazenly accuse us of terrorizing our own
people and being a threat to the world. It is hard to
imagine which planet they live in and which aliens
they hope to convince with their lies.
The reception Tony Blair received in Dublin is clear
proof that no humans believe his stupendous lies.
