The western media and political figures repeatedly dodge the fact that their terrorism is breeding terrorism. They continuously talk about crimes committed by Muslims yet play ignorant about the destruction caused by their interventions in foreign countries and the oppression that Muslims are facing as a result.
Western intervention in Muslim countries has not led to the deterioration of terrorism; rather it has inflamed the situation and resulted in creating more terrorists. In fact the former head of MI5 warned Tony Blair that launching the war on terror would increase terrorism.
It is high time that we recognise the destruction that results from our foreign policies. It is high time we stop dodging the root cause of terrorism, and it is high time we recognise that this issue is not an Islamic or Muslim one; it is a Western foreign policy one.
