Guest Post from Salina Khan

Don't Shop Til They Stop

Media stereotypes all Muslims as violent

by Salina Khan

It might seem paradoxical that Muslims insist Islam is a peaceful religion yet the media daily report terrorist attacks, killings and internecine fighting in Muslim lands. To understand this, we need to realize that whenever an oppressed group tries to organize itself towards self-determination, freedom and justice, those who hold power and privilege in society feel threatened and often resort to evil methods to keep those groups subjugated.

For example, when African-Americans mobilized to demand equal access to political and economic rights and power in the 1960s, their movement was sabotaged through the FBI's COINTELPRO program which was designed to destroy Black leadership and create disunity and discord among African-American activists. All of a sudden, cheap drugs, gangs and gun violence became rampant in African- American neighborhoods, essentially damaging the social fabric of their communities and killing the movement. Even today, African-American leaders who try to promote unity against oppression get mysteriously killed. On May 9, Malcolm Shabazz, the 29-year-old grandson of Malcolm X, was killed in Mexico. Just a few months ago he complained about ongoing harrassment and humiliation in a press conference after he was detained by the FBI and prevented from attending an international conference on Hollywoodism in Iran.

In the same way, Muslims who had been subject to Western-imposed colonialism and neo-colonialism for centuries saw independence for the first time in Iran in 1979 when the 2,500-year-old monarchy (propped up by our government in the twentieth century) was removed by popular demand under the leadership of Imam Khomeini. Both Western powers and their puppet monarchs in the Middle East in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Jordan, felt threatened that this movement for self-determination would spread--ending imperialist control of natural resources and cheap labor in Muslim lands--and went into action to foil Islamic movements for self-determination. In addition to imposing wars on Muslim lands (such as supporting Saddam Hussain in his 10-year invasion of Iran in 1980, two Iraq wars and Afghanistan), ragtag mercenary groups now known as Al-Qaeda (or as some say Al-CIA-da) were created to spread terror, chaos and destabilization in Muslim lands. Western countries provided the weapons and training while the Saudi pitched in money and the Wahabi clerics (who are not even considered within the fold of Islam for preaching extremism, hate and violence) provided a distorted understanding of Islam to entice the uneducated and poor.

If we study contemporary politics in the Muslim world we find that it was Western governments who supported the "mujahideen" (led by Osama bin Laden) in Afghanistan in the 1980s and again American and European intelligence agencies (along with illegitimate Arab monarchies) who funded and trained extremist groups to fight in Libya and now in Syria. In the same way, in America we find that whenever there is a "homegrown terrorist" threat, it's almost always a case of entrapment. Even one of the brothers suspected of being behind the Boston bombing we now know had FBI handlers.

Just as the African American males have been stereotyped to be criminal and violent although it is they who are the victims of false charges, discrimination, and extrajudicial killings in Western countries, the media and officials now present Muslim men as terrorists though they are the ones being targeted through wars, drones and torture for daring to or potentially attempting to demand freedom and justice.

Islam and Muslims are being used as scapegoats for the wrongs and injustices our corporate-controlled governments are committing to fatten the profits of the elite at the expense of the global masses. While there are some Muslims, especially corrupt political leaders and scholars-for-dollars, who are part of the oppression, there is much more than meets the eye. As Jesus asked, "Why do you see the speck in your brother's eye but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?

Muslims were not behind 9/11 ~ Salina Khan


  1. The government seems petrified of black people organising themselves politically. I have often wondered if they would be better off bypassing the politics and concentrating on collective economic support. The same for Native Americans. It seems to work for the jews .....

    1. Blacks end up incarcerated frequently because they do things that cause them to get arrested - high levels of alcohol and drug use are part of the picture.

      The reason SOME blacks get falsely accused is due to the rampant criminality in the black population - it is simply easy to pin something on a black because as a group, they have an (unfortunately) high rate of criminality. Malcom X's grandson recently was murdered under suspicious circumstances. It is true he was involved with political issues - however he also had a past which involved substance abuse and ended up killing a family member in a fire.

      It's not a very good analogy. Muslims in general don't have this issue behind them. They have been subject of a smear campaign by the media based on false premises (i.e. 9-11). At one time Muslims were considered ideal citizens (back in the 80's) by the Republicans because their families stayed together, they stayed out of trouble and they were becoming accomplished in the US.


    2. Total BS that ignores the real reasons why blacks engage in more criminal acts-poverty. Why are they in poverty? What happened to the black community in recent American history? You think that doesn't have a long lasting effect on families? But no, by all means just pretend their "blackness" makes them inherently more prone to crime. What utter John Friend style BS. Not a compliment by the way.

      PS-love how you ignore the even more recent history of the CIA deliberately pumping crack into black communities in the 80's. Not surprised though.

  2. I'm remiss in not saying that this is an excellent summary of the situation from Salina Khan.

    I think it is a mistake to focus on defending against false accusations to the cost of focusing on what it is that the PTB don't want their targets to get on with.

  3. Many Wrongs. Our Best here in BC lost to Drugs and Drink. Desperate People do Desperate things. An Astonishing lack of any Spiritual Enlightenment exists for Most here in Commie GreyScale Land. Just Plain Sad.

  4. The same for Native Americans. It seems to work for the jews

    Not sure that most humans have that depraved sense of 'entitlement' that the Khazars have, nor are they soulless ghouls, ready to kill people by the millions to accomplish goals.

    Nor are most humans thieves who boldly steal trillions.

    Nor do we humans have the ultimate 'Ace in the Hole,' the never-ending holocau$t cons, that the Jew uses to help keep their dominance over humanity.

    1. I agree, Greg. I think you misunderstood me. I hope I made myself a little clearer in my second comment

  5. how do little people escape the Matrix...


    pisses the hell out of the Psychopathic Terrorists in the stool sculpture deity cult compound...

    "This new trend of boycotting TERRORIST TALMUDIA is catching on globally like a fire in a dry hay field. Musicians, scientists, universities and even elementary school children in California...including even public figures fall in love with the idea of becoming heroes and supporting an important cause, and after thinking twice, jump on the bandwagon.


    Millions by Millions they leap wholeheartedly into the picture painted in colorful pastels by Truth tellers and exposers of the Talmudic LIE, as so-called "JEWS", watch breathlessly just like in some twisted horror movie about ghoulish "Jews" harvesting organs from innocent little children after the heroic headshot...by the "Jew" defending the "Jewish" way of life in Talmudia....


    curiously no one on Earth HAS to STAY in the stool sculpture deity cult compound...it is Voluntary...just like the IRS sez...

    calling Gordon Kahl...


  6. Unfortunately, too many of the richer Moslems have gone to work for the Mossad, CIA etc.

    - Aangirfan

    1. The Islamic world is awash of crypto Jews in all key positions. Not even a Caliphate can be formed which means the entirety of the Muslim world is occupied by the Judea-Christian demons.

  7. Salina pointed me to an article she wrote which also reflects Christian mega-churches.

    'Build masjids, not country clubs'


    And this comment...

    "While I believe Muslims should have the right to build a mosque, it becomes a useless, expensive building if its leaders fall to pressure to remain silent about social injustices going on around them."

    This is essentially what many of us have been saying for a long time. To remain silent about social injustices, crimes and corruptions of those who 'rule' over us and especially the illegal immoral wars for profit equals more of the same.

  8. A couple of comments made at other places...

    One on a response from Salina to what I am calling hasbara...


    and one on the Angela Jolie BS...


    "Another day, another psyops.

    Council on Foreign Relations Jolie, good little girl. Selling what the medical mafia is pushing.

    Hollywood propaganda and mind control merges with corporate interests....again. Someone thinks there is much profit to be made.

    Sometime soon there may be a paparazzi photo of Angela's reconstructed assets and everyone will say "My, what a good job they did."

    Edward Bernays would be proud."

  9. TTFN...


    “The stool sculpture deity cult called the Jewish religion is under attack in Europe”, declared the Conference of European dung doodling Rabbis president Pinchas Goldschidt.
    Many polls bring an iconic number measuring the disaster: 150,000,000 Europeans have a delegitimizing and demonizing view of the stool sculpture deity cult compound State of Talmudia and its dung doodling so-called "Khazar Jew" ....cult members/citizens.


    For a large sector of Europe, the cities, skyscrapers, hospitals, cinemas, and schools on that tiny sliver of land named "Israel" are merely real estate that will be restored to Islam once this malefic stool sculptured Jewish form is flushed away.


    This is a popular mobilization against TALMUDIA in the “Raus mit Uns” spirit. 150,000,000 Western citizens believe that Zionism is a misconceived project to be brought to an end as soon as possible.


    It is the consequence of the Palestinian-Islamic TRUTH TELLING war on "JEWISH" lies....

  11. I am sure most people here saw this anyway but I have to comment on it again. In Europe Holland and UK, it has gotten to the point that they put you in jail when pedophilia is reported. You find out your wife is pimping your daughter to a satanic pedo ring and 11 cop cars show up to arrest the husband who is outraged. This is something out of the twilight zone.


    Of course is getting that way in the Tel Aviv subsidiary (otherwise known as New York) Threats to Ellen Mariani for daring not to take a pay off on 911.

    A federal court in New York has sanctioned the widow of a 9/11 victim as well as her attorney, for filing “a series of offensive insinuations, unmistakably anti-Semitic.” California Attorney Bruce Leichty and Appellant Ellen Mariani were both chided and fined by the court in an 11-page decision dated May 15th.

    Our October 2012 run-down ‘9/11 Widow Faces Sanctions For Objecting To Judges Israeli Ties‘ was dubbed an “excellent article” by the Ellen Mariani Legal Defense Fund and explains how the 9/11 widow and her lawyer were threatened with sanctions for “deeply troubling personal slurs” against U.S. District Court Judge Alvin Hellerstein


  12. Off course Muslims had nothing to do with the 9/11. Last year Israeli Zionist Jewish author Barry Chamish admitted in a interview that Israel in cooperation with American Zionist leaders, committed terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
