The Jewish Curtain

Posted by JewishRefugee

The Jewish State of Israel has become an important diversion tool in the Muslim world. I want to shift away from the Arab Israeli relationship and zoom into the relationships between Muslim and other foreign people and or countries excluding Israel. Since the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Islamic World has witnessed land disputes, civil wars between different religious confessions within Islam more or less.

The reason I am writing this article is because Israel is being condemned for her defensive action in Gaza Strip that has claimed life’s of civilians behind whom terrorists hide, the number is under 800 people with more than half being terrorists. On the other hand, wars that have taken and are taking place right now in Former Unified Islamic World will dwarf the total number of casualties that has been incurred since the beginning of the Arab Israeli conflict. In other words, Arab Israeli conflict is a dwarf among the giants of internal Muslim struggle. I want to clarify that it will be only about Islamic World excluding Israel, within the context how Israel has served as a great mirage.

Here are few examples of what I mean by giants;
In 1915-1923 Turkish Muslim genocide that took life’s of 1,500,000 Christian Armenians.

The partition of the Indian Subcontinent in 1947, outcome 800,000-1,000,000 Muslims and Hindus killed.

1955-1972 Civil War in Sudan 500,000-600,000 mostly Christian killed.

1961 to date: Muslim Indonesian genocide against West Papuans has resulted in

100,000-400,000 killed.

1962-1992: Civil War in Ethiopia, 1,400,000 Muslim and Christians killed.

1970: Jodanian Civil War 25,000 Muslims killed.

1971: 1,250,000 Muslims killed during the Bangladesh secession from Pakistan and Bangladesh War of Independences.

The resource of this information is the Middle East Rules of Thumb by Steven Carol.
These are just few examples that I wanted to share with you.

The point that I am trying to bring up is that even though Arab Israeli conflict is so tiny compare to the ones that I have mentioned, yet Arab Israeli conflict gets the most media attention and the most blame for every socio-political crisis in the Islamic World. It is always convenient to blame external parties for the internal failures, thus saving their faces in front of mad mob. Therefore, Israel has become a convenient curtain that serves as the cover-up for all the failures in the Former Unified Islamic World. In other words there are more serious problems within the Muslim Countries than Israel.

Nice Article, but I would not trust Russians and no one else for our survival, after all every time we depend on someone for our survival we cease to exist.
