I always say that in today's world being ignorant is a choice, you don't even have to leave your house and go to the library anymore; information is at your fingertips! Buying into the political game that keeps some people from suffering the consequences of their bad choices is not only naive but extremely dangerous, that is called "false knowledge".
Islamic extremism was NOT created by western countries through war. Those interferences certainly destabilized some regions, (we tend to take down dictators that are then replaced with much worse) but did not create the mentality that plagues the world today. And please, climate change is the most ridiculous excuse I've ever heard in my life for killing people! There are people living in drought and poverty conditions in the northern part of Brazil for two centuries and they kill no one.
Islamic genocide started way before we invaded Iraq, if you have no knowledge of that then you need to inform yourself before accepting the "new truth" being spewed by the so called journalists who will say anything to protect their sponsors.
The following are just a few examples of Islamic extremism and murder.
Between 1915 - 1917 the Muslim controlled Ottoman Empire of Turkey committed the Armenian Genocide. The total casualties were 2,700,000 Christians which included 750,000 Assyrians, 500,000 Greeks and 1.5 million Armenians. This was done for two reasons; ethnic cleansing and Islamic Jihad.
Then again between 1953 – 2005 in the Sudan, a total of 3.5 million, including 2.5 million between 1983 – 2005. The reason again was Arab Islamic “supremacy” over “inferior” Southerners wherein jihad was declared by Numeiri in 1983 and again by al-Bashir in 1991.
Over 100,000 in Papua New Guinea since 1963 have been slaughtered by Muslim Indonesians: both government and Jihadists. More ethnic cleansing and jihad, only this time with the added element of apartheid.
From 1966 – 1970 there were 3 million IBO Christians killed by Muslim, (Hausa) dominated forces. From the 1970’s – 2000 another 300,000 Lebanese fell to Syrian 'Palestinians.' Let’s not forget the 3 million in Bangladesh murdered by Islamic Pakistanis in 1971 because of contempt for “impure” Bengalis. In every case, Muslims on Christians and others.
I could go on, but the list would be too long. This is not something new or caused by the Iraqi war or the Syrian civil war; we're just seeing the result of pretending this has not been a problem for decades. And since now that we've included political correctness and climate change to how we deal with the problem, I don't see it getting better any time soon.
