Zionist-controlled media fueling Islamophobia in US: Scholar
The Zionist-controlled media in the United States have exaggerated the terrorist attacks in the country and falsely blamed them on Muslims to fuel Islamophobia among Americans, an American scholar and radio host says.
“Virtually all of the 600-plus so-called terror prosecutions since 9/11 have all been complete hoaxes,” said Dr. Kevin Barrett, a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance.
“The threats were fabricated by the FBI in virtually every single case and yet people don’t know this because the American media is in the hands of Zionists who are committing a war crime and a crime against humanity by refusing to investigate the terror attacks attributed to Muslims which are proven over and over to have been committed by paramilitary hired killers who are the enemies of Muslims, creating these incidents to whip up Islamophobia,” Barrett told Press TV on Monday.
“There is no statistically significant terror threat from anyone in the United States, much less Muslims,” he added. “The major events attributed to Muslims in the United States from 9/11 onward have all been false flag events; professional killers carried out attacks designed to be blamed on Muslims.”
These acts of violence falsely blamed on followers of the Islamic faith have increased attacks against American Muslims and have created anti-Muslim sentiment in the country, the scholar noted.
Islamophobia has recently spiked in the US following anti-Muslim comments by some Republican presidential candidates, especially Donald Trump and Ben Carson.
In the latest case on Friday, a 43-year-old Muslim man in the Bronx borough of New York City was attacked by a group of assailants who were yelling “ISIS,” a reference to the terrorist group also known as ISIL or Daesh.
The victim, identified as Mujibur Rahman and originally from Bangladesh, was attacked in front of his horrified nine-year-old niece.
Rahman, who was wearing traditional South Asian clothing, suffered bruises on his head and face.
No one was immediately arrested in the New York assault, which is under investigation by hate crimes detectives from the New York City Police Department.
