The War on Terror, Islamic Jihad, and Racism

San Francisco Chronicle, September 17, 2006:

"The tall, light-skinned man reeking of sweat and cigarettes often gallops his horse right into the nightmares of Darelsalam Ahmed Eisa, 18. Each time, she said, he throws her to the ground, pushes up her skirt and forces himself inside her while muttering: "Abdah. Abdah. Abdah."

Slave woman. Slave woman. Slave woman.

He was in her dreams just Thursday night, she recalled, as real and horrifying in his green camouflage uniform as he was the day he raped her two months ago. But when Eisa awoke Friday morning, there was no time for terror, no time for tears. She covered herself in an orange and blue cloth, grabbed the family's ax and departed for the perilous Darfur countryside, out of the relative safety of a sprawling camp for people displaced by the violence in this region of western Sudan."

The genocides in Sudan against black Christians and animists in Southern Sudan and black Muslims in Darfur by Arabs (specifically, 'Afro-Arabs') and the "slave" epithet these perpetrators use against their black victims highlight the role of Arab racism in jihadism.

Of course, to the Left, it is the West, especially America, that is racist.

Actor Woody Harrelson in The Guardian: "This is a racist and imperialist war ... perpetual war on any non-white country they choose to describe as terrorist."

California State professor As'ad Abukhalil: "When casualties are dark-skinned and Muslim to boot, people don't tend to care, but shed even one drop of American blood ... suddenly everybody is furious."

Chant at Los Angeles antiwar march, October 8, 2001: “One, two, three, four, we don't want your racist war!”

The pathetic "reasoning" goes like this: al-Qaeda and other jihadist terrorists are Muslims. Muslims are Arabs, Persians, South Asians, and other nonwhite groups. Therefore, fighting al-Qaeda and other Muslim terrorist groups and
tyrannical regimes is racist.

But just how "nonwhite" are Arabs and Muslims? And what are their views on race?

For decades Arabs were generally considered white by the United States government for census and immigration purposes. Light-skinned Arabs and a number of African-American scholars alike consider light-skinned Arabs to be "white" or, more specifically, "white Arabs." Tellingly, genetically related Near Eastern and Middle Eastern non-Muslim, non-Arab groups like Jews and Armenians are almost never described as "non-white" or "persons of color."

Famous Lebanese-Americans like Paul Anka, Ralph Nader, Yasmine Bleeth, Jamie Farr, and Sammy Hagar are viewed as simply white, not "persons of color." Most Iranians, Afghans and Pakistanis are Indo-Europeans, not Semites like Jews, Kurds, and Arabs. Some modern day neo-Nazis consider Iranians, white Arabs, and other light-skinned, non-Jewish Middle Eastern and South Asian groups to be white (most neo-Nazis would also probably think that they are not white enough). The Bosnian Muslim division of the Waffen SS, who wore fezzes and swastikas, were deemed Aryan by the Third Reich. The high level al-Qaeda Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, a Syrian Arab, is quite fair-skinned and sports a naturally red beard.

Despite high-minded Muslim ideals of racial equality, as portrayed in Spike Lee's Malcolm X biopic, racism is endemic in the Muslim-Arab world. East Asian maids, African black Muslims and Christians, and other ethnic minorities (or even oppressed majorities) - Kurds, Berbers, Pakistanis, Assyrians, Armenians etc. are treated like semi-humans or animals by racist and bigoted Arabs and Muslims (note that I am not claiming that all or even the majority of Arabs and Muslims are racists), subject to abuse, enslavement, and genocide.

Professor Tariq Modood of Bristol University: "Arab racism is such that most Pakistanis would prefer to work in Britain than in Saudi Arabia for a higher income; racist humiliations from shop-keepers, taxi- drivers, catering staff and so on have become a regular feature of the pilgrimage to Mecca for the diverse ethnic groups of Islam."

Professor Moses Ochone of Vanderbilt University: "Arab racism is also so deep it is inscribed in the semantics of the Arab language. ... the generic word for a black person is the preface "abd," which translates as "slave," as in "Abd"-allah (slave of God). ... The case of the Sudan is perhaps the most vivid, poignant, and irrefutable example of Arab racism against black Africans. ... Arabs never quite saw the raiding of black villages for slaves and cattle, especially in Southern Sudan, as a crime.
Arab-speaking Northern Sudanese ... are a dark-skinned people, although most of them are of mixed Arab and African ancestry. But (they) no longer perceive themselves as blacks... Indeed, they have long become Arabized."

But once the guilt complex of (some) Western whites is triggered, every Arab and Muslim on earth is supernaturally transformed into an oppressed person of color for purposes of Western self-abasement. It is strange when those who hold some of the most bigoted views on earth - that is, Islamic militants - are viewed as the sympathetic victims of our racism. "White" Arab Muslim militants have stolen the moral capital of their own victims - the victims of jihad and Arab supremacism.
