The al Qaeda ploy of manipulating victimhood is stark in its call for blacks to join the mujahideen. Such tactics bear a resemblance to those employed by Louis Farrakhan et al to keep their positions of power in exploiting victimhood, to ensure that blacks are kept oppressed in ghettos and blame whites for it, no matter how society evolves.
Long beyond the abolition of slavery, the establishment of a constitution to protect human and equal rights, and the increase in immigrants of every culture, Farrakhan et al drag the past into the present to manipulate white guilt and fuel black anger. For example, Farrakhan accused whites of persecuting blacks, pointing out that the Qur’an teaches that persecution is worse than slaughter (cf. Qur’an 2:191 and 2:217), thereby justifying the slaughter of the alleged persecutors. Farrakhan then called for a bloody race war when he stated that he was looking for “10,000 fearless men” to “rise up and kill those who kill us; stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling!”
The most effective psychological conditioning a potential black jihadist “warrior” can have is to be kept feeling oppressed and victimized by whites; become increasingly angry about it; then be indoctrinated about ways he can put that rage to “good use.” It’s a kind of harnessing of religiously motivated jihadi zeal. Al Qaeda’s leader Ayman Al Zawahiri said in his statement about blacks in America that whites:
….humiliate the Africans [i.e. African Americans] until this day, and no matter how much they try to reform and obtain their rights according to the law and the [U.S.] Constitution, they will not attain it, for the law is in the hands of the white majority, [who] control it as they wish. And they [i.e. African Americans] will not be saved but by Islam.
Groups such as al Qaeda and the Nation of Islam teach oppressed blacks (and other downtrodden visible minority groups) that they can be empowered and belong to the Muslim brothers, who are fighting in a “good” and “just” religious cause, as Zawahiri stated:
Only Islam can save African Americans in the United States from oppression at the hands of the white majority….
Blacks are drilled and brainwashed to believe that it is white people and Western democracy that are cruel, repressive, and responsible for all black societal problems, and that they can find a newfound empowerment by taking up the jihadi sword. Zawahiri urged Muslims globally to:
…rebel against their leaders and to strengthen their attacks on the U.S., arguing that with the fall of the U.S., many of her allies will fall too.
This kind of manipulation of the downtrodden by Islamic supremacists makes blacks ripe for jihadi recruitment. Not all blacks are downtrodden, but al Qaeda has certainly identified them to be, and is urging them to attack Westerners for the “glories of martyrdom,” making them believe that they can be winners (in Western terminology), with the goal of bringing down America. What better way to expand a network of sabotaging America’s “miserable house” from within, according to the Muslim Brotherhood plan? Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb outlined a very similar project to cleverly expand its networks by worming its way into other cultures and manipulating the causes that are important to that culture.
Prejudices exist in every society between differing cultural and religious groups, and although America has past sins, it has long since evolved beyond and repented for those sins. Just in case anyone forgot, America voted in a black president (despite the mess he has made of America) for two terms. There are highly influential blacks in political positions, not to mention in the private sector. Just how many blacks hold influential positions in Arab states and in Iran? African refugees have reported that Arabs are more racist than Europeans. In fact, on the continent of Africa, six countries have been identified as being “hostile” toward black people.
It’s common knowledge that Al Qaeda does not get along with its violent jihadi counterpart, the Islamic State, except maybe in applying the adage that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Following the deadly massacre at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, which the Islamic State hailed and took responsibility for, Al Qaeda weighed in and urged lone wolf jihadists to make sure to target white Americans and avoid gays, in order to prevent future jihadi attacks from being labelled as “hate crimes” against gays or others.
Meanwhile, the Islamic State declared that if Muslims ran America, the black slave trade would have continued. Islamic supremacists are no friends to blacks.
“Video: Al-Qaeda Urges Black Americans to Convert to Islam, Threatens More”, by Edwin Mora, Breitbart, September 13, 2016:
Al-Qaeda, echoing previous attempts to stoke racial unrest, called on African Americans to convert to its extremist form of Islam in a video released days from the 9/11 anniversary.
Only Islam can save African Americans in the United States from oppression at the hands of the white majority, argues al-Qaeda, nearly two months after its Yemen-based branch urged its followers to specifically target the white community in the U.S.
In a document, released in late June, the Yemen-based al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) called on all Muslims in the United States to attack “areas where the Anglo-Saxon community is generally concentrated” and “avoid minorities.”
The new al-Qaeda 9/11 video, titled “Defiance of the Injustice: On the Occasion of Passing of Fifteen Years of the Raids of September 11th,” was released on September 9 by Al-Qaeda’s media wing Al Sahab, and it featured the terror organization’s current leader Ayman Al Zawahiri in a 20-minute address to Al-Qaeda followers, along with archived footage of the group’s former leader, Osama Bin Laden, reports The Foreign Desk.
“As long as your crimes continue, the events of 9/11 will be repeated thousands of times, by the will of Allah. And we will follow you – if you don’t cease your aggression [against us] – until the Day of Judgment,” declares Zawahiri.
Zawahiri boasted at both the economic and human toll the terrorist attack has inflicted on the American people.
He expressed regret that the fourth hijacked plane, United Flight 93, did not reach its intended target, “The biggest criminals in the White House or the Congress.”
The al-Qaeda leader refers to the 9/11 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people and wounded thousands more as “blessed.”
African American Muslim leader Malcolm X is featured in the video and used to persuade the black community into joining extremist Islam.
Zawahiri urges African Americans to blame the United States for their struggles, adding that “the law is in the hands of the white majority, [who] control it as they wish.”
Al-Qaeda has been targeting the African American community for recruitment for some time.
A video from the Somalian al-Qaeda-linked al Shabaab released in January was aimed at recruiting American blacks to become jihadists, using the messaging of leftist activist group Black Lives Matter.
In the September 9 video, the al-Qaeda leader says:
We inform every weakened [person] in the world: America is the source of calamity and the head of evil in this world, and it is the thief of nations’ ailment, and it is the one who humiliate the Africans [i.e. African Americans] until this day, and no matter how much they try to reform and obtain their rights according to the law and the [U.S.] Constitution, they will not attain it, for the law is in the hands of the white majority, [who] control it as they wish. And they [i.e. African Americans] will not be saved but by Islam.
He urges Muslims around the world to rebel against their leaders and to strengthen their attacks on the U.S., arguing that with the fall of the U.S., many of her allies will fall too….
