El-Erian on Boston Marathon bombings

El-Erian on Boston Marathon bombings


The criminal acts in Boston, which killed three and wounded 244, comes in the context of reproducing an old case that will not return and not produce negative effects on Islam and Muslims.

Our sympathy with the families of the victims, and the American people do not stop us from reading into the grave incident.

This series of events began with the sending of French battalions to Mali in a war against organisations that are said to belong to Al-Qaeda.

Bombings intensified in Syria in a suspicious manner that deviated from the path of the great Syrian revolution, and smear campaigns began.

Violent explosions returned, rearing their ugly heads again in Iraq, targeting peaceful movements aiming for needed reform.

After a reasonable calm in Somalia, the capital Mogadishu shook again, leading to lowered confidence in the new president and government.

The historic agreement, which ended the fiercest regional conflict, between Erdogan and the leader of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) is faltering.

A question that forces itself: Who disturbed democratic transformations, despite the difficult transition from despotism, corruption, poverty, hatred, and intolerance to freedom, justice tolerance, development, human dignity, and social justice?

Who planted Islamophobia through research, the press, and the media?

Who funded the violence?

The march of the Arab peoples will continue, and the will of right, justice, and dignity will triumph, and Syria will triumph to democratic transition movements with the permission of the victorious One God Almighty, who cannot be rendered incapable.

    If you think you have lied to, so have we, the American people. We are constantly being told by the media one thing, only to find out it’s only partially true or not true at all. You asked who is behind and who funded the media misinformation against you…if I were you I would take a serious look at The Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, and World Bank. However, do so at your own risk, they have no intention of letting go of power.

  2. This ignorant is a little confused and is confusing us. He mixes self inflicted wars like Mali, Syria , Somalia with war on terrorism. He thinks that talking about freedom and democracy will lead to freedom and democracy while we all know that the aspirations of his “brothers” are far from being fulfilled matter of fact we all know that there is a regression in the “peaceful” Arab and Muslim world of the liberty and democracy.

    Translation: no matter who the US tries to defend or help, the Muslim Brotherhood will always maintain, “Acts of terrorism against Americans are simply a natural progression to everything America does.” We are not all blind to the insidiousness of the MB’s “benevolent” attitude.

    Rarely have I read something so devoid of logic. At this point there’s no evidence to suggest the Boston bombings have anything to do with Islam, Muslims or Arabs. What a road race in Massachussetts has to do with French troops in Mali, or the perpetual failure of one or more Arab states, is beyond me. It is telling, however, that you assume they’re linked.

      And that you will use those fast jets obama is sending you to more of us cause we ain’t kneeling to your god – admit it, you people just like to kill – is it a sexual thing?

    why talk out of both sides of your mouths?
    No one, as of yet, has claimed responsibility for this cowardly bombing and killing innocent humans, at an atheletic event of all places. I have not heard anything that would lead an intelligent person to believe that any member of the Muslim Brotherhood is responsible for these cowardly acts of depravity.Get over it, and stop “knee-jerking” to every thing that is happening in this world is always Muslims vs The rest of the world’s inhabitants.You all are just not it!

    • Linda sez “at an athletic event of all places.” Yes, should be a place that is immune.

      But remember the Munich Olympics of 1972 in which Palestinian terrorists took Israeli athletes hostage and then killed them.

      No one is claiming Muslim fanatics were behind Boston. But history shows that some such terrorists are not above attacking athletes at athletic events.

    SIR … OH COURSE there is IS-LAME-aPHOBIA … 95% + of Terrorism done in the world is Muslims. Muslims who think they have to protect their deity! If AhhLaa is real he would protect himself, Mo-ham and his book Ko-ran from the WORDS said by Infidals! BUT the truth is AhhLaa has no power on his own, he needs you and muslim followers to come to Ahh-Laa’s RESCUE when someone says something against Is-Lame. Your deity AhhLaa is weak and and powerless – that is why your book says you must protect Ahh-Laa, Mo-ham and IsLame. Take humans out of the equation of protecting AhhLaa and Is-Lame will fall! This goes for all religions who think they have to protect and rescue their so-called deity! The true G-D don’t need you or me!

    Sir, that would be whoever converted money meant to aid populations to money to aid murderers, whoever taught millions of people that death is better than life and should be loved more than life, and whoever taught women they shouldn’t go to school, drive, or talk to men by choice…need I go on? That would be whoever taught you to justify these acts by blaming others. I pity them and you.

    These sociopathic cowards who send their children to kill themselves rather than blowing themselves up in the hope they might murder a few women and children started these wars not in the 20th century, but in the 7th century when their forbears decided to invade and conquer Christian territories in Palestine, North Africa, Syria, the Balkans, and Spain. Only Christian courage beginning with Charles the Hammer has prevented them from destroying every person on earth who serves a different God. They need to repent of their unutterable evils rather than lecture us about our attempts to prevent their bloodthirsty enterprise.

    Idiot! His precious, bumbling oaf puppet of a President is sending the country backwards into hell, and he has time to comment on a completely unrelated incident.

    When you read somebody’s translation, you automatically assume it’s correct because that’s human nature, trusting. The translation in this case is inaccurate, could be a simple mistake, could be deliberate, but the point is, if you believe everything you see in print, especially on the internet, then you’re a mug and your trust is misplaced.

  13. Yaqoob said:

    Actually, to be fair the translation’s mostly accurate but with at least one schoolboy mistake (should be “who is disturbed by democratic transformations” instead of “who disturbed”), but it doesn’t give you the context in which this was said and doesn’t give you any feel for the situation in Egypt and the rest of the Arab world that leads to such thoughts. I’m no believer in conspiracy theories and “the world’s against us” type thinking but if rely solely on typical western media then you aren’t going to know, for example, that the French have been involved in agent provocateur work in North Africa and infiltration of AQIM for at least a few years, so the whole business in Mali smells somewhat fishy. This has been the subject of academic study in the US and was reported in Le Monde Diplomatique, but it doesn’t make the “mainstream” news for whatever reason. Equally if you watch Arab television, you realise that you can get an equally distorted picture of the world as we do here in the west because media tend to portray events through the prism of a particular world view. I’d agree with Marshall McLuhan when he said the “the medium is the message” and I think you have to be aware of what message that medium is giving you behind the “factual content”.

    All commentators should read Susan Blackmores book, ‘The Meme Machine’ She shows how easy it is for a ‘meme’ ie a
    small piece of information, like a computer virus, to become lodged in a brain. When it is enforced by the power and mumbo jumbo of religion it can stay active for centuries. The christian meme and ethic is declining because of education and new, more sexy memes and declining power of the law and church.
    The muslim meme stays strong from peer pressure, terrorism and the laziness of western democracy and the post
    modern cohort of lefties whose memes are peace and love for all, even those who hate you. Somehow they can ignore
    the acid in the face suppression of women, the ‘honour’ murders and rapes and the fear of female sexuality which
    blights the intellect of men from the Chinese border to the shore of the Atlantic Ocean.
    That is what is producing all these deranged young men. Even the Boston bombers, with a western education, fall victim
    to the germ of filth they inherit from their culture. It causes them to doubt their own sanity.
