BBC: United States of Hate….

I just watched the new BBC show, “United States of Hate” http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fOc56ypztRg

Interesting show. Now consider that this scenario is multiplied FIFTY times because there are 50 states and ALL of them have militarized groups like the ones shown in this show and All these groups have one thing in common; they hate Islam and Muslims.

Because their whole reason to be is so they can stoke fear of another group and fire up the hate.

Not so long ago, they hated Blacks and Jews and while they still may continue with that tradition, they don’t want to speak about it and they don’t want to be seen as preparing their weapons to kill Blacks and Jews.
Ever wondered why they no longer load their weapons and parade outside Black Churches or Jewish Synagogues? Because they know that the authorities would be on them like flies on poop and they would no longer have lives worth living, maybe they would be in jails for inciting violence and hate too.
Such a heavy reaction by the authorities is not because our Police and the FBI have suddenly developed a deep love for Blacks and Jews. It is because their bosses have been told by the political leadership that such behavior among civilians and among law enforcement will not be tolerated; Zero tolerance.
Why would that be?
Because the Blacks are finally getting their acts together enough that if one is treated unjustly, Black communities across the country start giving their heartburn. If one Jews is hurt by a civilian or by a law enforcement agent, Jewish communities across the country rise up and make lives miserable for their politicians until forceful action is taken.
Muslims, on the other hand…are not yet ready to protect themselves or their children.
We do not stand united for anything. This is the greatest irony of all because Islamophobes believe we Muslims are like a group of automatons, waiting for “The Signal” so we can rise up, take over America, rape the non-Muslim women, kill their men and install Shariah everywhere.
The reality is that there are hardly three Mosques that even speak to each other, I doubt if even two share congregational or family activities together. Each Mosque is so focused on the need to be the sole leader of ALL local Muslims that they undermine everyone else.
Almost to a man, we are so petrified of “The authorities” that we dared not give voice to our fears in front of them. It is unthinkable for our Mosques to take forceful action and demand that our politicians do more to protect Muslims and ensure equal rights. If a political or departmental leader shows up at a Mosque (after craven invitations), our brethren can be seen smiling, fawning and getting their pictures taken with the dignitaries. So why should politicians pay attention to the worsening state of affairs for Muslims?
We thrive on promoting fear and distrust amongst ourselves. It seems that the only way for us to show our devotion to God, to Islam and to the prophet Mohammed, is by showing how much we can hate other Muslims who are not just like us in their worship practices. The only time Muslims seem to stand united is when they are pointing hate-filled fingers at other Muslim groups and declaring those others to not be Muslim.
I am reminded of the sinking of the Titanic. The poor people in Steerage allowed the officials to lock the iron gates which led to the upper decks and escape from drowning, while the rich folks in the upper decks did nothing for the poor and were concerned only for their own skins. The crew were sincere people who did what they were told by the officers…who did what they were told by the civilians (the company’s Brass was on board)…who had no interest in people who could not influence the company in any way.
Thus, we continue to argue among ourselves as to who is a better Muslim and who is not, who “gets along” with the authorities and who may be “controversial” and who deserves to be “The Leader”. While we are thus occupied, our enemies, of whom the militias are only a small part (Right-wing Churches, Jewish Blind supporters of Israel and opportunistic politicians form the largest segment of Islamophobes) continue to throw more fuel into the fires of Islamophobia. It is instructive to understand that Trump does not spout Islamophobia because he might actually believe in it; he stirs it up because he knows his support base wants more hate against Islam and Muslims…and he knows Muslims aren’t worth a pile of dirt politically.
Yes, watch this BBC show friends and watch it carefully. Then try to decide if our internal divisions are helping us here or, even in Heaven for that matter (God WILL ask why we sat and did nothing). This is not something prayers are going to solve, only collective action will.
This year, will Muslims have one Eid or three? THAT will tell us whether our egos are still bigger than our faith.

  1. Just watched the show “United States of hate”: Muslims under attack. I’m absolutely disgusted with the idiots in America, first they hated the black community now it’s Muslims are they serious????? It’s the “all American guy” that’s the problem not anybody else to blame but themselves for all the hate that’s going on in the world. I’m white Scottish & hold no hate towards any faith, sex or race. If they sit & think about respect for mankind then maybe the world could at least have love in their hearts ❤️

    “Ever wondered why they no longer load their weapons and parade outside Black Churches or Jewish Synagogues? Because they know that the authorities would be on them like flies on poop and they would no longer have lives worth living, maybe they would be in jails for inciting violence and hate too.”

    June 17, 2015. Dylann Roof didn’t seem so deterred.

    And if the KKK or Aryan Brotherhood want to lock and load and have their parade outside a black church or Jewish synagogue, they’re entitled to do so, and the authorities have no power to stop them. That’s the First Amendment at work. The Nazis successfully defended their right to march in Skokie, Illinois nearly forty years ago and the ACLU helped them win that battle in the Supreme Court.

    As The Hour approaches, we’re told to remain aloof from the parties of contention. Is the BBC anything other than an organization that exploits the phenomenon of contention for profit? These armed wannabe vigilante groups are as few and far between as the acts of extremism perpetrated by self-professed muslims. They are not the norm. Were it otherwise, it wouldn’t be news.

    You won’t be able to stop these yahoos by force of arms. That may scare them. Temporarily. Or not at all. Here’s an alternative method that might prove more effective:

    Or not.

    The objective of these groups is precisely that of “da’esh” ~ to precipitate polarity pitting one variety of extremism against another. They are obverse faces of the same counterfeit coin.

    Work within your community ~ or start your own ~ as you wish, Islam allows for either. It’s hot out there, but it can get worse, especially when we fan the flames.
