Islamophobia and Nuclear Technology

The history of Xenophobia and Islamophobia in the West is very old. The genocide of innocent Jews, colonization and existence of ghettoes in the Western cities is a living example of the xenophobic past. These ghettoes are full of non-white minorities such as Arabs, Africans and Asians. Nowadays, there is a tendency to label all Muslims as fundamentalists and supporters of terrorism. Terrorism is used as an excuse to spread Islamophobia. It is very vital to understand the context in which Islamophobia is exercised and its effects on the world affairs. Specially, when a Muslim country tries to acquire or transfer nuclear technology then the use of Islamophobia becomes very evident.

For example, every effort is made to stop technological progress in any Muslim country. When a Muslim country tries to acquire a technology such as nuclear then the West unites to stop it. One of the excuses used to stop technology acquisition or transfer is that the technology might fall in the hands of terrorists. Almost every technology has a potential to be used for a peaceful or a destructive purpose.

Why nuclear weapons are safe in the hands of U. S. A., who used it against civilians in Japan? When U. S. A. supplies nuclear technology to its allies, it is called technology transfer. But, when Pakistan supplies nuclear technology to its allies then it is called proliferation. Why double standards are applied in case of Pakistan? Why countries like Germany can be trusted who committed one of the worst crimes in the history against the innocent Jewish population during World War II? Why a country like Iran is not trusted to acquire nuclear technology for peaceful means?

Why every move by the Muslim countries to acquire or transfer nuclear technology is regarded as suspicious? What are inner motives to stop acquisition or transfer of nuclear technology by the Muslim countries? May be this is the time to look into Islamophobia as a tool to stop acquisition or transfer of technology by the Muslim countries.

  • Iran's leader, Ahmadinejad, has claimed that the Holocost is a myth and that Israel should be wipped off the face of the earth. It is irresponsible to allow such an ignorant man to pursue nuclear technology. Also, the German government is long changed since it was rule by Hitler.

  • Pakistan has demanded that South Asia should be declared a nuclear free zone. Pakistan is willing to give up its nuclear weapons provided India does so as well.

    Is Israel willing to give up its nuclear weapons and declare Middle East as nuclear free zone?

    Israel is committing war crimes in Palestine and Lebanon. It has destroyed civilian infrastructure such as water and power stations. Hospitals are running out of supplies and civilians who are trying to escape are being killed by air raids.

    Existence of the Holocaust does not mean that Israel has a right to kill innocent Arab civilians.

  • I agree, Iran's leader, Ahmadinejad, is insane and has threatened to wipe an entire nation off the face of the earth. Muslim propaganda about Japan is about as ludicrous as it gets. This was a different time under totally different circumstances and there is only doubt among those with an agenda that many more would have been killed had the US not dropped the bombs on Japan, including the Japanese themselves. We do not have to worry about the nuclear weapons being in the hands of terrorists when it comes to Iran. Their president is a terrorists himself.

    Also, Islamophobia is a myth made up and repeated only by people with an agenda. Phobia is an unrealistic fear and almost the entire world...everyone but the Muslim terrorists/extremists... knows for a fact that Muslim terrorists/extremists are very real. It is in our faces every single day. So get real!

  • I agree, Iran's leader is a nutcase and is a terrorist himself, threatening to wipe an entire nation off the face of the earth and supporting many terrorists. So we do not have to worry about terrorists getting their hands on a nuclear weapon in Iran when they would immediately be in the hands of an insane Muslim terrorists.

    The US dropping the bombs on Japan is just more propaganda used by Muslim extremists/terrorists. Some of the more ludicrous propaganda, too. This was a totally different time and understand unusual circumstance. With the exception of Muslim terrorists/extremists and maybe a few others with an agenda, there is little doubt that many more would have been killed had we not dropped the bombs on Japan. Unfortunately, many times we have to kill some in order to save many others.

    Islamophobia is nothing but a myth and more propaganda used by Muslim extremists/terrorists. Phobia is a fear without reason. The Muslim terrorists/extremists give the world something to be very concerned about every single day. Muslims are fighting in like 22 out of the 23 armed conflicts in the world today. Muslims are constantly screaming in their media how they are going to destroy this one and that one and rule them with Islam. We have people who translate this BS in this day and time, you know.

    Muslims have had this mindset for many, many years now. We find where America's founding fathers went to Muslim leaders to asked them why Muslims kept attacking US/western ships when America had just became a country. They told two of our founding fathers that Islam tells them they are superior to all and should kill all infidels until Islam rules the world. Mark Twain wrote about how the Muslims hated westerners after his trip to the holy land in the 1800's. He also talked about how poverty striken the Muslims had made this land and how everything Islam touched turned to poverty, which is the real reason you find so many Arab Muslims living in poverty throughout the world, even in their own countries. Quit trying to make up excuses for something that has been going on for many years now. Muslims only prospered when they kept conquering country after country and stealing from all others. When they were finally stopped and they ran out of people to conquer and steal from, their empire gradually became the eyesore of that part of the world for many years and stood only b/c the Europeans and others allowed it to stand.

    Wake up and smell the coffee, Arab Muslims only bring everything on themselves. We all get out of life what we put into it. Only losers sit around blaming the rest of the world for their problems and never try to do anything about fixing their problems by facing the truth.
