David Cameron to Arm Woolwich Terrorists?
Given his government’s policy in arming jihadist
extremists in Libya and Syria, British Prime Minister David Cameron and
his Foreign Secretary William Hague should immediately order the
transfer of heavy weaponry and aid to the two terrorists who beheaded a
soldier in Woolwich yesterday.
Cameron yesterday condemned the slaughter of the soldier
by two jihadists, remarking, “We have had these sorts of attacks before
in our country, and we never buckle in the face of them,” and yet his
government is desperately trying to aid insurgents in Syria who carry
out similar atrocities on a regular basis in pursuit of the exact same
This hasn’t stopped Cameron and Hague aggressively
pushing for deadly weaponry to be sent to Syrian jihadists. Indeed, even
as the attack in London was unfolding yesterday, Cameron was urging
that an arms embargo be lifted.
If these are the kind of men Cameron and Hague want to
arm, then why don’t they immediately release the two Woolwich terrorists
and send them off to Syria with machine guns and RPG launchers?
Cameron’s vehement support for the campaign in Libya, armi
ng Al-Qaeda insurgents as
part of the effort to depose Colonel Gaddafi, a process that led to the
country being overtaken by brutal warlords and terrorist gangs who
later took part in the attack on the US consulate
in Benghazi last September, also renders his stance on the Woolwich attack completely baffling.
The Clash of Civilizations
In 1993, political scientist Samuel P. Huntington
outlined the elite’s vision for a new world order shaped by clashes
between cultures, not ideologies. Writing in Foreign Affairs
Huntington noted that, “Conflict between civilizations will be the
latest phase in the evolution of conflict in the modern world,” adding
that, “The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of
conflict will be cultural.”
Having seen 9/11 and the resultant “war on terror”
facilitate this narrative, western governments are now eager to fan the
flames of racial sectarianism not only throughout the middle east but
also across Europe and America. By hyping the threat posed by Islamic
terrorism – which in reality poses less of a threat to human life than bee stings
drowning in a bath – and keeping populations in a perpetual state of
fear – power can continue to be centralized, wars can be justified, and
populations can be oppressed.
The two-pronged attack of inviting huge numbers of
Muslims into the United Kingdom and enabling them to take advantage of
the country’s generous benefits system while simultaneously slaughtering
over a million Muslims abroad in wars of aggression has created the
perfect environment for those wishing to expand state power.
In harboring a growing Muslim population while
simultaneously killing their people, the UK government is creating all
the homegrown terrorism it needs to justify continued neocolonialism in
the middle east and an ever expanding arms industry.
The ignorance of westerners in thinking that all Muslims
ascribe to the same extremist Wahhabi doctrine, when in reality this
applies to a tiny minority of Muslims, also perpetuates the myth. As George Eaton writes
, Muslims, “bear no more responsibility for jihadism than Christians do for the Ku Klux Klan or the Westboro Baptist Church.”
It is imperative to remember that while our governments
constantly invoke the threat of Islamic extremism to justify military
imperialism, centralization of power and domestic repression, they are
simultaneously funding and arming Islamic extremists around the world.
Until both westerners and Muslims realize that
authoritarian power structures pose the real threat – not manipulated
fairy tales about Islamic extremism – will the violence begin to end and
humanity can unite under the banner of freedom against its one true
enemy – the state.
