Is It Wrong To Have Rage Towards Your Rapist?

Contrary to popular belief, hatred and anger are not popular beliefs of Muslim people.  I’ve traveled to many places and interacted with many Muslims in my life.  I’ve conversed with Iranian Muslims in Philadelphia, Pakistani Muslims in Monrovia, Liberian Muslims in the countryside, and Indian Muslims in London.  None have tried to blow me up.  None have called me an infidel.  As with everything, media trumps up certain events while downplaying the other, all according to what corporate interests are at stake.  For example, on August 5th, 2012, there was a terrorist attack at a Sikh Temple in the state of Wisconsin that left 6 dead.  The terrorist was Wade Michael Page, a right wing religious fanatic who spoke about an “oncoming holy war”.  The gun issue involved with the massacre was trumped up while the religious and terrorism issue was downplayed.  Why?  According to the mainstream media, the good guys are White Christian males while the bad guys are Brown Muslim, or in this case, Sikh males.  Reporting heavily on this event would have caused people to call into question media propaganda.  Similar to that event is the current media frenzy over the “Muslim rage”.  This blog will focus on how the “Muslim rage” is trumped up while the triggers of that rage are downplayed.

  Is It Wrong To Have Rage Towards Your Rapist?

 American media has been in a rage over the Muslim’s apparent…well, rage.  Americans are so intrigued on what is causing the uproar.  Is the rage over a made for YouTube film? Is the rage over 9/11?  Is the rage over the New Orleans Saints starting the season at 0-2? Nobody seems to know.  NOT SO FAST!! Fox News knows!! All the rage has not been caused at all.  It’s always been there.  Yep.  The Prophet Mohammad founded Islam simply to hate infidels.  I guess Fox forgot that America wasn’t made when Islam was founded so the term infidel isn’t necessarily a synonym for America.  WELL HOLD ON!!! BREAKING NEWS!!! CNN knows the cause of the rage. It’s because of a movie.  The screaming, flag burning, murdering, & rock throwing is all caused by a movie.  Yep…a movie.  Who would have thought that war destroyed countries that hardly have running sewer systems have MacBooks and available Wi-Fi to watch YouTube……….who would have thought…

I would argue that the cause of the rage is simple and could be summed up in 3 words:

American foreign policy

American foreign policy in the Middle East is not one of peace, but one of plunder.  Its not one of democracy, but one of droning.  Its not one of goodwill, but one of GITMO.  Take Yemen for example.  Reports come out weekly on drone attacks gone wrong.  Recently, Marines have been deployed there to “protect the embassy”.  Daily, innocent men, women, and children are being murdered in a borderless, endless, and limitless war against an idea, an idea that simply gets stronger every time an M-16 shell hits the ground.  An idea of self-determination.  An idea that believes the citizens of Yemen can determine their own course of history and if that idea is fueled with their belief in Allah so be it.  Isn’t everyone entitled to “life, liberty, and the pursuit” of happiness?  Look at Pakistan.  Pakistan has been the playground for Bush and Obama for almost a decade.  Assassinating the rogue CIA agent Osama Bin Laden, increasing the droning campaign from 52 hits under Bush to 292 hits and counting under Obama, and undermining the integrity of the Pakistani government is not a policy of collaboration, but one of imperialism and control. All over the Middle East America carries out droning campaigns.  All over the Middle East America carries out mass incarcerations.  All over the Middle East America carries out “enhanced interrogations”, or torture as it was called before Bush.  Fast forward to September 11th, 2012.  Spontaneous protests break out in Cairo, Benghazi, Sudan, Pakistan, and Indonesia.  Some protests become violent, with one ending in 4 murders.  Muslim Rage is the diagnosis of the protests and murders.  What’s interesting is that diagnosing the problem is all the media and politicians have done, offering no logical solutions.  Unless you consider the Republicans remedy of cutting aid or the Democrats remedy of probing more into the film as viable solutions.  I don’t.  Americans always boast Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s approach to civil rights…turn the other cheek towards violence, hatred, and abuse.  Yet when it comes to foreign policy, American abandons ship, preferring the old “water hoses and dogs” approach, Marines and F-15s.  It’s very Ironic.  Muslims have every right to feel rage.  What kind of human beings wouldn’t feel rage if their very existence was called into question every day?  The way to counter Muslim rage is to leave their countries and let them live their lives.  I seriously, seriously, seriously doubt Al-Qaeda will invade our country.  I remember watching a documentary on a freed GITMO detainee.  This man spent 6 years in solitary confinement and was tortured daily for simply looking like an insurgent.  When asked to explain how he felt about America, he said the following:  “I used to love America.  America stood for freedom and liberty.  America does not live up to that.  America creates terrorists.  American policies make Mujahidin daily”.  That man was right.  Every day America throws gasoline on the fire.  Everyday the fire rises.  Its time for America to get out before the fire consumes us.

    Usually I do not read post on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do so! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thank you, very great post.

    • Thanks!! I appreciate your attention! The whole situation is just so easily manipulated by the media and the military. If the people remain clueless and trust whatever our media puts out, the army wont be able to keep up with the requests these sheeple put in to join up to “defend American freedom”.

Let me know what you think.
