It cannot be stated often & strongly enough that ‘war on terror’ ideology & strategy must be rejected in its entirety, in particular its Islamophobic character. One would think it had exhausted its potential in the barbarisms visited upon Iraqis, Afghans, Syrians, Yemenis, Uyghur, Rohingya, Sri Lankans, Somalians, Kashmiris, Palestinians, & so many others but it continues to crescendo & gain force as a justification for colonialism, war, genocide, as well as justification for persecution of Muslims in many other countries. It demonizes Muslims & puts emphasis on the reactionary militarized response to colonialism rather than on the considerably more overwhelming & significant colonial armies & propaganda forces who often create, train, & bankroll paramilitary insurgencies.
