Ceux-là qui nous effrayaient avec la supposée « menace communiste »
sont les mêmes qui brandissent aujourd’hui l’épouvantail de l’ « Islamisme »!
Samuel Hundington (membre du CFR) a popularisé l’expression « Choc des civilisations » (« clash of civilisations »), mais le concept a été utilisé bien avant par le théoricien juif et propagandiste anti-Islam et anti-Arabe Bernard Lewis.

De la politisation du 11 septembre – Richard Hétu
Il aurait fallu en glisser un mot aux organisateurs d’une manifestation contre le projet de construction d’une mosquée près de Ground Zero, dont l’orateur principal était Geert Wilders, député néerlandais d’extrême droite qui doit être jugé en octobre dans son pays pour incitation à la haine et à la discrimination.
«L’Amérique, New York et la charia sont incompatibles. New York, c’est la liberté», a déclaré Wilders devant 2000 manifestants réunis dans le sud de Manhattan, non loin de Ground Zero.
«Nous ne devons jamais tendre une main à ceux qui veulent nous dominer», a-t-il ajouté en qualifiant d’«humiliation» le projet controversé de l’imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, musulman new-yorkais réputé pour sa modération.(…)
Mais le neuvième anniversaire des attaques aura mis fin à la trêve politique qui a marqué les commémorations précédentes. L’ancienne candidate à la vice-présidence Sarah Palin et l’animateur de télévision Glenn Beck ont ainsi choisi la journée de samedi pour tenir en Alaska un rassemblement pour «patriotes» au cours duquel ils ont ironisé sur leur candidature respective à l’élection présidentielle de 2012.
Cette politisation est attribuable en bonne partie au 51Park, nom de ce centre culturel islamique abritant une mosquée à deux pâtés de maison de Ground Zero. Le projet a provoqué un débat houleux et douloureux non seulement sur son opportunité, mais également sur la place de l’islam aux États-Unis.(…)
Il sera intéressant de voir si l’un d’eux trouvera quelque chose à redire du message que tenait samedi au Pentagone le président démocrate, message qu’il répétera peut-être le 11 septembre 2011 : «Ils (les islamistes radicaux) peuvent bien essayer de provoquer des conflits, mais en tant qu’Américains, nous ne sommes pas et ne serons jamais en guerre contre l’islam. (…).»
Qui est responsable alors de ce délire collectif, la presse ou la Maison-Blanche?
La presse a raté une bonne occasion d’examiner la source de cette «nouvelle». Quelle compétence théologique, en effet, permettait à Jones — qui n’a jamais étudié l’islam — de condamner le Coran ou de dicter aux musulmans où bâtir une mosquée? Quelle expérience à titre de «pasteur» l’autorisait à presser les adeptes de la vraie foi de «se tenir debout»? Aucune. Il aura fallu que son bûcher soit à la veille de flamber pour que des médias s’intéressent au passé du personnage.
Qui est-il ?
Cet ancien gérant d’hôtel a pris la direction, il y a 15 ans, d’une petite secte fondée par un homme d’affaires en 1986. Avec son épouse, il en habitait une grande propriété, mais surtout y gérait une entreprise de meubles, vendus sur eBay. Ses ouailles ne dépassaient pas la cinquantaine. Et dans une «académie» attenante, des pensionnaires s’occupaient aussi à travailler pour l’entreprise du pasteur.
D’après des rapports de presse en Allemagne, Jones y a été associé à une «communauté chrétienne» à Cologne, avant d’en être écarté. Son style de leadership était contesté, ainsi que son diplôme de théologie, obtenu d’une école biblique non reconnue. En Floride, sa petite Église s’était donné un mandat universel, comme son site le proclame, mais elle n’avait guère de succès.
Jones a certes publié un livre dont la page titre affirme que «l’islam vient du Diable». Mais ses affaires vivotaient. Les autorités locales de Gainesville mettaient en question son statut fiscal. Le moment pour le prophète de frapper un grand coup n’était-il pas venu? Avec tous ces musulmans osant implanter une mosquée à deux pas de Ground Zero, Dieu lui en aura, dit-on, donné l’inspiration.(…)
Bref, ce «media event» spectaculaire mais débile n’aurait obtenu qu’une mention à la chronique des incidents loufoques, si les médias s’étaient le moindrement enquis du triste curriculum de Terry Jones. Par contre, en donnant une grande visibilité à une violence symbolique, ils risquaient de provoquer ailleurs des réactions extrêmes qui, elles, auraient été fort réelles.
The demonization of Arabs and Muslims in America began well before the terrible tragedy of September 11, 2001. It can be traced to deliberate mythmaking by film and media, (2) stereotyping as part of conscious strategy of ‘experts’ and polemicists on the Middle East, (3) the selling of a foreign policy agenda by US government officials and groups seeking to affect that agenda, (4) and a public susceptible to images identifying the unwelcome ‘other’ in its midst. (5) Bearing the brunt of these factors are Arab and Muslim non-citizens in this country. A series of government laws and policies since the 1970’s have steadily targeted Arab and Muslim non-citizens for selective interrogation, (6) detention, (7) harassment, (8) presumption of terrorist involvement, (9) and removal from this country. (10) The Patriot Act, (11) recent round-up and detention of over 1,000 (12) and list of interrogation targets of 5,000 individuals, (13) and the Presidential Order to establish quasi-military ‘tribunals’ (14) exacerbate the selective targeting of Arab and Muslim non-citizens in a climate of fear that completely sanctions blatant racial profiling. (15)
A. The Stereotype of Arabs as Demonic Terrorists and Religious Fanatics
Commentators fit anti-Arab, anti-Muslim animus into various ‘racist’ theories, from anti-immigrant sentiment that targets whichever group represents the most recent immigrant population (16) to a more dynamic process of ‘racialization’ that focuses on a social-political order that requires a marginalized ‘other.’ (17) The former only partly explains the demonizing of Arabs and Muslims in America, especially as Arabs (not necessarily Muslims) in particular have been part of the fabric of United States society since the late 1800’s. (18) The latter, Omi and Winant’s characterization, is more helpful, but does not precisely delineate the very specific factors that have come together to ‘racialize’ Arabs and Muslims in the United States. Still, the reasons for defining race as a process are particularly valid, as they indicate both the severe damage ‘racialization’ can do to the communities and individuals affected, and that the process can be reversed. (19) Social or historical analysts focusing on the problem h ave identified how and why Arabs and Muslims in particular have been racialized in America:
Anti-Arab racism does not emanate from a single source, and certainly is not limited to passions stemming from the Arab-Israeli conflict. Several types of anti-Arab racism and violence can be discerned. The first, and most obvious, is the political violence of Jewish extremist groups, which is correctly viewed as emanating from the Arab-Israeli conflict…. The second is a more nativistic violence which is xenophobic and local in nature…. The third is a form of jingoist hostility and violence usually associated with international crises involving U.S. citizens…. (20)
Nabeel Abraham is not alone in identifying these sources of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim racism, but his work is particularly helpful in marshalling evidence to corroborate each factor. (21) His second factor is better viewed as including xenophobia fed by film and media stereotypes about Arabs and Muslims. His third factor is also more accurately broadened to include hostility and violence related to foreign or domestic crises in which U.S. citizens are seen as victims. To his list, however, must be added a fourth factor, which is deliberate misinformation, distortion and institutionalized racism existing in government, law enforcement and influential institutions that target Arabs and Muslims both within the U.S. and abroad. Evidence on each point is discussed below.
Politically-Motivated Violence And Intimidation
The Arab-Israeli conflict is a consistent thread in the stereotyping of Arabs and Muslims as ‘terrorists’ in the United States since at least the 1970’s. According to Abraham: « Jewish extremist groups constitute an undeniable source of anti-Arab hate violence not discussed in conventional accounts of racist violence in the United States. » (22) In the 1980’s the Jewish Defense League (JDL) was « one of the most active terrorist groups in the United States. » A 1987 study published in an FBI Bulletin indicated that Jewish extremist organizations committed « approximately 20 terrorist incidents and numerous other acts of violence, including extortion or threats… » representing about one quarter of the total terrorist acts in the United States in the 1980’s. (24) Yet well-regarded hate crimes listings and studies do not separately identify Arab ethnic origin in their victim classifications, (25) and others completely omit Jewish extremist groups from the categories of perpetrators. (26)
Even less known is the phenomenon of politically-motivated threats and intimidation against Arabs and Muslims in the U.S. by such mainstream Jewish organizations as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith. The ADL, established in the early 1900’s as an organization with the mission to fight anti-Semitism, has gained a reputation as one of the foremost anti-racism groups in the U.S. It has cultivated an image of defending not only the rights of Jews, but also of other minorities, and of promoting racial justice. Unfortunately, the ADL appears to have also had another mission, which began sometime after the establishment of Israel in 1948: to discredit or silence critics of Israel or defenders of Palestinian human rights. (27) In 1983, the ADL released a handbook entitled Pro-Arab Propaganda in America: Vehicles and Voices, apparently planned as the first of a series. (28) Groups or individuals who criticized Israel or Zionism were listed in the handbook, along with quotes and descriptions of their act ivities. All were characterized as ‘extremists’ intent on eradicating Israel or inciting prejudice against Jews in America. (29) Included in the handbook are some of the most prominent academics, thinkers and writers on issues of the Middle East, from Columbia University’s Edward Said to Harvard University’s Walid Khalidi. Virtually every human rights and humanitarian organization dealing with the Middle East or Palestine is on the list. (30) Dr. Alfred Lilienthal, himself on ADL’s ‘blacklist,’ claimed « [m]any ADL charges against critics of Israel and Zionism are totally inaccurate, questionable, or based upon half-trths. » (31) The handbook was widely distributed through ADL’s 31 U.S. regional offices and Canada, in an effort, according to many critics, by Zionist activists to use to challenge, harass and silence groups and individuals on the list. (32) Nor is ADL the only Jewish organization to compile and distribute ‘lists’ of Arab-American individuals and groups and those working in solidarity with them. T he American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) issued two similar lists. (33) Through a campaign primarily on college campuses organized against groups and individuals on these lists, AIPAC and ADL harassed and intimidated academics and activists for years.

Zionist-Christian Crusaders Are Nuts,
But Find Muslim Bashing Good for Income
By Victor Thorn
The reason America exists is to partner with Israel, to protect Israel.” These chilling words, and the fear surrounding them, emanated from Rev. Darrel Whatley of the Kingdom Ministries Worship Center.
Whatley and others were featured in an Oct. 24 article by Bob Smietana for The Tennessean that highlighted how rampant “Islamophobia”—a concocted fear of Islam based on the government’s official and phony conspiracy theory of what happened on 9-11—has become a multi-million dollar industry.
Although that aspect of history isn’t surprising, Smietana chronicles how a host of non-profit organizations are receiving charitable donations and then surreptitiously funneling them to for-profit companies.
The heavy-handed sales pitch involves a combination of war, terrorism, fundamentalism and the usual “end-times” apocalyptic horrors. Smietana summarizes their peculiar mentality.
“American Christians have a religious duty to protect the state of Israel,” said Smietana. “When Israel expands, Muslims in Iran and Iraq will be forced out of their homes to make way. Then the second coming of Jesus can begin.”
One of the most flagrant manipulators of faith-based fundraising is Steven Emerson, whose non-profit Investigative Project on Terrorism Foundation backdoored nearly $3.4 million to his own for-profit company, SAE Productions.
He’s not the only one generating significant amounts of money. Others such as David Horowitz receive annual six-figure salaries from their efforts within the “anti-Jihad” movement.
During an Oct. 27 interview, Ken Berger of the apolitical watchdog group Charity Navigator told this AFP writer, “Steven Emerson is blurring the lines by creating a non-profit front organization and then routing its proceeds to a for-profit company. It’s off the grid. I’ve never seen such questionable tactics like this before. In terms of best practices, it’s extremely odd. They’re setting a disturbing precedent.”
Berger questioned another aspect of Emerson’s methodology. “A 501(c)(3) foundation isn’t supposed to be engaged in political activities. . . . But by cloaking the identity of their donors, and therefore all fiscal responsibility, there’s very little transparency. Then they bump their resources over to for-profit companies. They claim the IRS has given them permission, but how is this appropriate? [A sum of] $3.4 million was transferred to Emerson’s SAE Productions.”
Berger also explained that these entities are “specially designated to provide a public good or service that can’t be granted by the government or private firms. We’re also under the assumption that they’re not making profits. But according to Emerson’s IRS filings, he took $3 million of donated money and shunted it to SAE Productions.”
Ibrahim Hooper, spokesperson for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), is familiar with this type of financial misdirection. He told this reporter on Oct. 26, “We’ve seen for years that Islamophobia merchants are a well-financed, well-oiled propaganda machine. The best known are Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Frank Gaffney and Steven Emerson.”
When asked specifically about the latter, Hooper replied, “Emerson has long been regarded as one of the primary Muslim-bashers, even before 9-11. He’s the one who tried to blame Muslims for the 1995 Alfred P. Murrah bombing in Oklahoma City.”
As AFP has noted for well over a decade, it wasn’t Muslims who infiltrated a militia group at Elohim City, Okla. back in the mid-1990s—an outpost that had ties to the OKC bombing. Instead, it was Morris Dees’s Southern Poverty Law Center. Meanwhile, Abraham Foxman’s Anti-Defamation League targeted groups critical of Israel, including the Spotlight newspaper.
Hooper also commented on those who fuel the neocons and Zionist money coffers.
“Obviously many of those promoting anti-Islamic hatred also hold an extremist support of U.S.-Israeli policy,” said Hooper. “There are a variety of motivations, but a certain segment of the evangelical crowd cannot be denied.”
One of the most obsessed with this notion is Pastor John Hagee of Christians United for Israel, based in San Antonio, Texas. An example of his hysteria was demonstrated during a Sept. 4, 2006 sermon.
“They [Muslims] are trained from the breast of their mother to hate us,” said Hagee. “Radical Islam is a doctrine of death. It is their desire, it is their hope, it is their ambition, and it is their highest honor to die in a war against infidels. And you are ‘infidels.’”
In March 2009 Hagee collected more than 100,000 signatures from American Christians who expressed their solidarity with Israel. Needless to say, many of these same individuals also contributed to “non-profit” organizations such as those fronted by Emerson. #
