In a startling disclosure that humanity is subjected to threat by America ,the UNHCR's annual "Global Trends Report: World at War", ,said that the number of people forcibly displaced at the end of 2014 had risen to a staggering 59.5 million .The overwhelming majority of oppressed people in the world are Muslims.
In the report released on 18 June 2015, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres said "It is terrifying that on the one hand there is more and more impunity for those starting conflicts, and on the other there is seeming utter inability of the international community to work together to stop wars and build and preserve peace," .
Now the question is who are these Muslims in refugee camps to live in appalling conditions?
They are from Palestine turned into Israel, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Bosnian, Kosovo, Albania, Somalia, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Central Asian Republics, Myanmar, several African countries and now 21 million Yemenis on the brink of famine in their own country due to Saudi bombing in the Holy Month of Ramadan.
The top three countries of origin for refugees are Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, all of which are Muslim majority nations. Iraq and Afghanistan alone make up 45% of all refugees under the care of UNHCR. Palestinians remain the largest group counting themselves at about 4.7 million.
In Syria nearly ten million people — almost half of the entire population of the country — are in serious jeopardy due to the ongoing conflict in Syria. Syria's ongoing war displaced 7.6 million people internally, and 3.88 million people displaced into the surrounding region and beyond as refugees.
These Muslim refugees once lived in the comforts of their own homes with their loved ones in peace and harmony in their own countries some of which were almost developed ones with modern infrastructures.
However the United States and its NATO-Israeli allies have bombed and turned these countries as wastelands as part of US Global War Doctrine to destroy Muslim societies worldwide. They destroyed modern infra structures, plundered wealth, killed millions, displaced many millions and turned several more millions into refugees.
Many Muslim historians describe these wars as the worst ever crusade in the more than 14 century history of Islam and Muslims. It was deliberately planned and carefully executed to ensure Israel's supremacy in the region.
The active members of the US led war alliance include United Kingdom, France, other European countries, Israel, Arab tyrants including Gulf Sheikhdoms led by Saudi tribal dictators. They participate in the destruction of Muslim countries, killing of millions of innocent Muslim men, women, children and the aged besides uprooting millions of Muslims from their homes and lands.
Colonialism has been reproduced as Arab authoritarianism. Violent authoritarian states have bred violent reactions. Western overthrow of Middle Eastern governments in Iran and Iraq provoked anti-Western violent responses. Popular movements or uprisings have transformed to renewed authoritarianism (Egypt) or horrific civil war (Syria, Libya, Yemen). And this is just a part of the terrible story that is engulfing the world in conflict and insecurity.
While collaborating in these wars, Russia had its own share of killing Muslims in its own territory of Chechnya where around 15 percent of the population was decimated. There is hardly a Chechen family who has not lost their loved ones. Added to it Russia also protects and promotes oppressive dictators in Muslim countries in Central Asia where people remain brutalized.
As a result most countries in the Middle East were pushed several centuries back while Muslim societies, their ancient civilizations, history and culture are being erased.
These wars were based on lies, deceptions, ruthless manipulation of media and other establishments and the blackmailing of small countries. The war mongers were least bothered about killing innocent people as former US Secretary of State Colin Powel said" I am not interested in the number games".
The US also wanted enemies to hoodwink the world to justify their wars. Thus they created organizations such as Al Qaeda, Taliban and now ISIS which is destroying Northern Iraq and Syrian territories uprooting millions from their homes and killing the innocent. In fact former US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton confirmed" Al Qaeda was created by America".
War mongers often commit violence only to blame Al Qaeda, Taliban and now ISIS to demonize Islam and Muslims to create an atmosphere to justify their crimes. Thus US led war on terrorism is in fact part of its global war agenda.
Western weapons industries, especially in US, UK, France and other European countries and Israel, continue to flourish in the misery of millions. The period since the collapse of former Soviet Union has been the most lucrative in the history of weapons industry. Gullible Gulf dictators alone spent more than 100 billion dollars in buying weapons during the past few years. The question is whom are they going to fight with?
United Nations is today a worthless organization as it has been ruthlessly manipulated to legalize these wars.
Under the circumstance the question is whether the world will ever be the same with millions of families torn apart- children without parents, parents unable to provide proper food, shelter, education and health to children who grow up in vacuum. The victims know who the architects of their sufferings were. These children suffering in refugee camps in shivering cold, rain and blazing heat, will certainly not going to grow up to be decent peaceful people.
Instead they are bound to wreak havoc to take revenge and the perpetrators in the west or their collaborators in the Middle East will ever be able to sleep in peace. Recent bombings in Kuwait, killings of the chief prosecutor in Egypt, ongoing killings in Afghanistan, killings in Tunisia are bad omen for those countries which created these human sufferings.
In his book"globalization of war"-doctrine, Michel Chossudovsky, professor of Economics and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) in Montreal, Canada, said "theworld is on a brink of America's instigated wars against all countries that would not succumb to political pressure by the U. S. Empire. This US military adventure threatens the future of humanity. Before, talking about "Islamic terrorism" one has to address "Western-inflicted terrorism" upon these countries" .Ends
