1) In the aftermath of an attack, blame someone, repeatedly, day& night. Over and over.Make it look like the official truth by getting the media houses under your influence to do the same. Without any evidence or a court case, make that man public enemy number one.
Usama Bin Laden was a Mujaahid minding his own business during the Soviet war in Afghanistan in the 80’s. The fact that he hailed from an extremely wealthy Saudi family that had business ties to America, put him on the map for America. Along with Usama, Dr Ayman Az Zawihiri was also accused of being the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks& the leaders of “Al- Qaeda.”
2) Create a phantom terrorist organization. Firstly the ones who propagate the myth of Al-Qaeda should have chosen a Scarier name than Al Qaeda, come on! It means ‘the base’ or ‘the one who is sitting’,which self respecting “terrorist” wants to be sitting as in park dom,live long? I don’t really think so. There is no official trace or record of this group anywhere.
Marc Sageman, a psychiatrist and former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officer, said that al-Qaeda is now just a “loose label for a movement that seems to target the West”. “There is no umbrella organisation. We like to create a mythical entity called [al-Qaeda] in our minds, but that is not the reality we are dealing with.”
Whooooo….Al-Qaeda is coming to get you….you better watch your back, just listen to us blindly & we will protect you. So you don’t object when we murder innocent millions who never even knew what was the Twin Towers, in the name of Operation Enduring Freedom.( The official military name for the war on Afghanistan.)
3)Take your information from unreliable sources& accept it as fact about the biggest “threat” to your country. America has relied on ONE man’s information; Jamal AlFadhl, who apparently had a falling out with Usama Bin Laden and in revenge, turned spy for the CIA. In return for his wonderful information on Al Qaeda , they paid for his lavish lifestyle.
This is how the key witness(Jamal AlFadhl) against Usama was described by US officials themselves: His upkeep during the first 12 years of his life in Witness Protection were deemed “expensive”, as he was an “incessant troublemaker” who suffered severe emotional mood swings, a taste for womanizing and financial scheming.
Nice. Totally reliable guy. Perfect to be the source for a superior intelligence agencies.
4) Be useless. The World Trade Centre which housed the Twin Towers,was attacked before 9/11. Let’s take a look.
a) In 1993- A truck filled with thousand kg’s of bombs went off. Shaikh Umar Abdur Rahman, a blind, weak Egyptian scholar was accused of being behind it. He is still imprisoned for it& not allowed visitors.
b) In January 1998, the Mafia orchestrated a robbery in the World Trade Centre that netted them more than 2million dollars.
Coming back to the useless part, despite a bomb blast and a robbery against the Bank of America, despite having the best beefed up security, the best NASA surveillance systems in place, and having technology that can pick up what is Under an object, no.one.picked.up.that.the.planes.were.heading.in.the.wrong.direction??
Maybe because they weren’t.
To digest that they didn’t know the planes were heading in that direction is extremely difficult.
On the 20th of September 2011, Bush announced the war on terror but it was not to be a war on terror, it is a war against Muslims everywhere.
However just as child who fears the bogeyman in the dark shadows of his room,till the rustle of his curtain and a shadow becomes giant monsters to his imagination. The bogeyman is not real, his fear is. Until the light is switched on and all shadows disappear. No matter which government threatens what, no matter how a culture of fear may be created, the switch,the light, is remembering as the Quran reminds us Wallahu alaa kulli sha’in Qadeer
And Allah is All Powerful over Everything.
We cant do much to military powers & media organizations perhaps but we can light up our link with Allah,especially in this month& when we get close to HIM,who is there that can defeat our hearts & minds?
نَّ اللّٰهَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ قَدِيۡرٌ
And Allah is All Powerful over Everything. Believing in that,all shadows disappear.
