Zionist controlled US media spreading Islamophobia: Activist
The Zionist controlled media in the United States has created an environment of Islamophobia and shortsightedness for over a decade in the country, a Muslim African American activist and speaker says.
There has been a collaboration between the US and Israel to create terrorist and extremist groups in the Middle East to serve Zionist and Western interests, said Abdul Alim Musa, director of Masjid Al-Islam in Washington, DC and member of the Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought.
The rise of groups like al-Qaeda, Taliban and Daesh (ISIL) are part of an “evil plot” to justify the invasion and domination of Muslim lands, Musa said Saturday during an interview with Press TV.
Musa said the recent Islamophobic comments by US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump are the visible part of this evil plot; a war against Muslims that has been going on for decades.
On Thursday, Trump said he would be open to having a “Muslim database” in America for security reasons, two days after he said that the US would have “absolutely no choice” but to close down some mosques.
Hours later, the Republican frontrunner doubled down on his previous remarks when asked by NBC News if he would create a national database to register all Muslims living in the US to protect the country against terrorism. “I would certainly implement that, absolutely.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has voiced concerns over a spike in Islamophobia in the US, following the recent attacks in Paris.
The Muslim advocacy organization has called for additional safety measures in the Islamic places of worship in the wake of the attacks, which the Daesh Takfiri group has claimed responsibility for.
Since last week’s Paris attacks, there have been a series of anti-Muslim incidents reported, including terror threats to Florida mosques, vandalism at a Nebraska mosque, shots fired at a Florida Muslim family’s home, hate graffiti targeting a Connecticut Muslim student, a tweet threatening Michigan Muslims, and innumerable hate messages sent online and by phone.
