Killers and Rapists of Muslim Children It is never acceptable to kill innocent

It is never acceptable to kill innocent civilians regardless of the circumstances. It is even worse if the victims are children. Yet this is precisely what is happening to civilians in many parts of the Muslim world where the US and its allies are involved. Let us begin with Afghanistan where on April 2 Afghan helicopters unleashed deadly missiles on hundreds of young madrasah students who had gathered for a graduation ceremony in Kunduz. The American occupiers had recently supplied the helicopter gunships to their Afghan puppets. Afghan pilots were operating under instructions from their American masters. Why was the gathering of students, clearly visible from the air, attacked? The Afghan regime alleged that there were members of the Taliban Shura present at the event. The Taliban denied this but even if true, does it justify the slaughter of hundreds of innocent civilians? Some 300 people including 102 children were killed in the attack. Equally shocking is the fact that few Western media outlets bothered to report the mass slaughter. Only a few gave it perfunctory coverage. Obviously, Afghan children’s lives are not as important as say, Anne Frank — especially if the killers are Zio-Americans or their puppets. Such killings will only add to the Afghans’ resentment of the occupiers and their puppets and lead to the intensification of resistance.

Not far from Afghanistan, in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir, another heart-wrenching ordeal of a young child has revealed the level of depravity of Hindu zealots. An eight-year-old girl, Asifa Bano, was kidnapped, gang-raped for four days and then brutally murdered. The perpetrators were Hindu fanatics. While the crime occurred in January, the police special crime branch finalized its report only last month, largely because the event became public. The details are horrifying. The child suffered torture and rape at the hands of her tormentors for four days before she was strangled to death and had her head crushed. All this was pre-planned.

The three locales mentioned — and there are many more — show US involvement, directly or indirectly. Afghanistan is under US occupation. Ashraf Ghani, the nominal Afghan president, admitted in a CBS interview (December 14, 2017) that if US forces were to withdraw, the Afghan army would collapse in six months. This after the US has spent almost $1 trillion fighting the Taliban and training the Afghan army! In India, meanwhile, despite the alarming rise in Hindu extremism, Western regimes are eagerly courting it. Human rights and freedom are meaningless slogans that Western officials mouth when they want to target a specific country whose policies they dislike. Their allies can rape, kill, and dislocate, including young children, without incurring any opprobrium. As for the illegal Zionist entity, it exists only because of the massive financial, military, diplomatic and political support the US provides. Israel can do no wrong even when it deliberately targets children because it is merely “defending” itself. For Muslims the choice is clear. There is no alternative to resistance against the occupiers and total break from the US. Anything that it touches turns to dust.
