The Western media is reporting the beheading of Peter Cassig, a young American who worked as development aid worker and had been kidnapped last year, result of Islamic terror. The young mans beheading with over a dozen Syrian soldiers while in custody of so called I.S is attributed to the jihadi spirit or culture of Islam of terrorists. While blaming Islam for the killing Western media conveniently forget that ISIS was created with funding and training by US+SAUDIA for this very purpose of killing. Should it be then called Islamo-Christian terrorism?
When IRA used to bomb Britain no one called the Catholic terrorists and when Burmese Buddhists massacre Muslim Rohinyaga no one calls it Buddhist terror? Aung San Suu Kyi the promoter of democracy and peace, winner of the Nobel peace prize who may not be formally responsible for the killings but has indirectly encouraged Buddhist extremists is hosted by Obama, another champion of peace.
To retain the US army in South Korea they forced Seoul Govt to make law to create prostitution districts for the pleasure of US army. Do they call it a Christian habit of destroying morality in Korea? Okinawa has voted in favour of a liberal who promised to shut down the US bases on that island which has destroyed Japanese culture for last 70 years; did they call it Christian state destroying Japanese youth forcibly with power of money?
The West is using the blame game to defame Islam; it was they who created jihadis to fight in Afghanistan against Russians, it was them who created and financed Osama bin Laden, it was them who created ISIS and who are even now refusing to stop financing them as long as they fight against Americas arch enemy Bashar al- Assad.
