The Global footprint of Ethnic Cleansing of Dhimmis and Kafir minorities
18/04/2015 15:10:10 Aron
The very term Pakistan denotes Ethnic Cleansing; a land that is to be carved out from common hold with Infidels. Paki or the ‘Purified’ land is thereafter to be obtained by constant refinement of its impure elements- of the najjis, the idolaters, the Jew, the less than devout, the hypocrite and kafirs of all kinds.
This is an endless processing of societies. Perpetual Jihad runs like Oil Refineries, Striving through Persecution, intimidation by terror and gradual Elimination of the Diversity.
The Umma is at all times in such constant churning of its internal contents.
There is further a constant Annexation of fresh land with its people. This means constant war and conquests. When not at war, peaceful Migration or Hijra begins to go out and Settle among infidel lands.
In either event, the Processing of society restarts, aiming at Purification and Elimination of the infidel elements- like the ‘No- Go Zones’ established wherever Immigrants from North Africa and Asia settled in large numbers in Europe and Western countries.
We can see the global footprints of this Ethnic Cleansing unmistakably dictating history. First a demand for an Ethnic Exclusive Zone is made as a just demand against a ‘brute hindu majority’, without which Muslims would perish. Pakistan or that Ethnic Pure state gets created. Then it starts purging the ‘not so pure’ and the Impure elements.
Wars get waged over enclaves like Kashmir that it claims on basis of being Muslim majority to be annexed. Migration or Hijra begins to flood the North eastern states and Assam and Bengal. An attempted Genocide of entire Hindu Bengali minority and ethnic cleansing in 1971 leading to its break away.
The uprooting of the entire Hindu Pundit minority of Kashmir Valley must be seen in that context of Ethnic Cleansing Ideology.
The solutions can only come by understanding the similar problems of such Ethnic Minorities, who went through this horrendous oppression under the hands of Islamist Ideologists.
The key is to understand and recognize the Ideology that drives these massive campaigns of subjugations of Ethnic elements- they are rooted in Islamist Doctrines.
The Genocide of Armenian Christian Ethnic people is ranked next only to Nazi Holcaust of Jews for its systematic execution of its objectives at Ethnic Cleansing. The Ethnic Cleansing of Kashmir Hindu minority Pundits and their exodus cannot be understood without recognizing its clear parallels.
After failing to annex by force the nominally muslim majority state of Kashmir through wars, Pakistan embarks on sponsoring Insurgency and Islamist groups wage a Jihad against Indian Sate seeking separation and annexation with Pakistan. The Jihad then turns its guns against the Hindu minority though ethnically they are kashmiris and natives of the land.
Similarly we see the movement to restore the Caliphate in Constantinople, frustrated at its objectives turn on the Armenian Christians.
A countercoup took place in early 1909, ultimately resulting in the 31 March Incident on 13 April 1909. Some reactionary Ottoman military elements, joined by Islamic theological students, aimed to return control of the country to the Sultan and the rule of Islamic law.
Riots and fighting broke out between the reactionary forces and CUP forces, until the CUP was able to put down the uprising and court-martialthe opposition leaders.
While the movement initially targeted the Young Turk government, it spilled over into pogroms against Armenians who were perceived as having supported the restoration of the constitution.:68–9 When Ottoman Army troops were called in, many accounts record that instead of trying to quell the violence they actually took part in pillaging Armenian enclaves in Adana province. The number of Armenians killed in the course of the Adana massacre ranged between 15,000 and 30,000 people.:69
We can also see how the Propaganda was similar to Pakistani Jihad groups-
By 1914, Ottoman authorities had already begun a propaganda drive to present Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire as a threat to the empire's security. An Ottoman naval officer in the War Office described the planning:
In order to justify this enormous crime the requisite propaganda material was thoroughly prepared in Istanbul. [It included such statements as] 'the Armenians are in league with the enemy. They will launch an uprising in Istanbul, kill off the Ittihadist leaders and will succeed in opening up the straits [of the Dardanelles]'.:220
The Pillage of Hindu settlements and confiscation of Properties can also be seen similarly.
With the implementation of Tehcir Law, the confiscation of Armenian property and the slaughter of Armenians that ensued upon its enactment outraged much of the western world. While the Ottoman Empire's wartime allies offered little protest, a wealth of German and Austrian historical documents has since come to attest to the witnesses' horror at the killings and mass starvation of Armenians.:329–31:212–3 In the United States,The New York Times reported almost daily on the mass murder of the Armenian people, describing the process as "systematic", "authorized" and "organized by the government". Theodore Roosevelt would later characterize this as "the greatest crime of the war".
The Ethnic Cleansing and pogroms were similarly orchestrated by State actors across the border in Pakistan issuing directives.
Another historian Taner Akçam states that the telegrams show that the overall coordination of the genocide was taken over by Talaat Pasha.
The widely reported Death dances by Kashmir Jihadis and burning alive of Pundits in their villages and massacres also has its precedence.
Lt. Hasan Maruf of the Ottoman army describes how a population of a village were taken all together and then burned. The Commander of the Third Army Vehib's 12-page affidavit, which was dated 5 December 1918, was presented in the Trabzon trial series (29 March 1919) included in the Key Indictment, reporting such a mass burning of the population of an entire village near Mus: "The shortest method for disposing of the women and children concentrated in the various camps was to burn them".
Vahakn Dadrian wrote that 80,000 Armenians in 90 villages across the Mus plain were burned in "stables and haylofts"
The only lack of Parallel was the absence of any Inquiry or Trial of the crimes against Kashmir’s Hindu minority.
The subsequent trial of the assassin, Soghomon Tehlirian, had an important influence on Raphael Lemkin, a lawyer of Polish–Jewish descent who campaigned in the League of Nations to ban what he called "barbarity" and "vandalism". The term "genocide", created in 1943, was coined by Lemkin who was directly influenced by the massacres of Armenians during World War I.[
While Ottoman censuses claimed an Armenian population of 1.2 million, Fa'iz El-Ghusein (the Kaimakam of Kharpout) wrote that there were about 1.9 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, and some modern scholars estimate over 2 million. German official Max Erwin von Scheubner-Richter wrote that fewer than 100,000 Armenians survived the genocide, the rest having been exterminated (German: ausgerottet).:329
The persecution and killings however continued in the Republic of Turkey, just like with Hindu, Buddhist and Christian minority of East Pakistan in today’s Bangladesh reduced to dhimmis, deprived of equal rights and suffering oppression. Their numbers steadily falling.
This is the Global footprint of Islamist Ethnic Cleansing and attempted Genocides.
The Kashmir valley’s Hindu Pundits in exodus and living in exile is just a small chapter with latest addition of Attempted Genocide of the Yazhidhis in Iraq by the Islamic State that United nations has announced to formally investigate and follow up.
The Ethnic Cleansing of Middle East Christians
This Easter saw two parallel events like a page from the same book of Global Islamist Ethnic Cleansing.
In India the new Government and its party running an alliance State government of Kashmir, announced that Kashmir Hindu pundits repeatedly getting attacked upon returning to their homes in Kashmir and unable to do so, would be granted lands where they can live in minority settlements.
In Egypt, the Coptic Christian minority have similarly been targets of attacks by salafists and Islamist radicals. Raymond Ibrahim describes the happenings to Christian minority that matches perfectly with what followed days after Indian Government announced its intention to Resettle the chucked out Pundit minority of Kashmir-
As millions of Christians around the world were celebrating Easter Sunday, the Christians of the Muslim world were again under attack. The April 2 Islamic jihad attack on a Kenyan school—where the Islamic murderers made sure to slaughter only Christian students, sparing fellow Muslims—was only the most spectacular attack.
On Easter Sunday itself, as some media reported, the Islamic State destroyed the Virgin Mary Church in Tel Nasri—loosely translated as “Christian Hill”—in northeast Syria.
Even lesser known is that other churches and Christians in the Middle East were attacked during Easter weekend. Take Egypt. President Sisi recently decreed that a Christian church should be built in the Upper Egyptian town of al-Our, where 13 of the 21 Christians who were gruesomely beheaded by the Islamic State in Libya grew up, and where their families still live. The church was meant to honor them and the nation of Egypt.
But, as always happens in Egypt—that is, as always happens in practically every Islamic nation in the world—local Muslims rioted and protested right after Islamic prayers last Friday. They yelled that they would never allow a church to be built, that “Egypt is Islamic!” and that “Anyway, shape, or form, we will take Sisi down!”
By night time, Molotov cocktails and stones were thrown at another Coptic church, cars were set ablaze—including one belonging to a relative of one of the those decapitated by the Islamic State—and several people were injured.
A day later, on Saturday, April 4, Muslims rioted and attacked the Christians of the village of Gala’, Samalout district. After waiting for years to repair their dilapidated church (also named after Virgin Mary, see pictures here) Coptic locals finally received all the proper permits to begin restoration. And, as usual, Muslim mayhem broke out.
Now what comes next is absolutely the clincher clue to this Global Footprint behavior of Jihadism.
In Kashmir valley, the Islamists who wont tolerate the Hindu kashmiris among them except as trembling terrified Dhimmis at their mercy, will be seen also at work there in Egypt opposing violently the Coptic churches. What is important is we should understand both these Islamists are on the same page and reading out the Rules book to Dhimmis.
Raymond Ibrahim continues-
‘ To calm matters, local police invited the Muslim leaders who refused to see the old church building renovated to a meeting with the Christians. The Muslims insisted that the Copts must first accept a number of discriminatory restrictions, including that the building look like a house not a church—certainly no crosses visible anywhere on the building’s exterior—and its entrance must be a narrow side door, not at the front of the building which faces the street.
Although initial reports said some compromise was formally reached, “Muslim youth” still responded with violence, attacking Coptic homes, businesses, and persons, often by hurling stones. Christian owned wheat farms were destroyed and their potato crops uprooted. Islamic slogans were constantly yelled, including “There is no god but Allah” and “Islamic! Islamic!”—a reflection of the paranoid sentiment that if a single church is built or merely renovated, Egypt will cease to be Islamic’.
Now turn to Srinagar and you see the very same rhetoric, reading of fine print and violence on streets.
“We have no problems with our Hindu brothers returning here, but we wont allow or accept them to live separately in their own settlements”, “these are Israeli style settlements”.
Isnt it laughable- to say Hindu Minority if they live here in their own settlements that would be Divisive- so it is better they stay outside Kashmir, which is suddenly Inclusive?
Jagannathan pokes at this venomous demand by Islamists to keep Kashmiri Hindu minority subjugated and reduced to helplessness constantly feeling intimidated- “ But the real point is this: the Pandits are the Palestinians of Kashmir Valley. They are the ones on whose land fundamentalist forces encroached and drove them out. It is the Muslims of the Valley who need to see themselves as aggressive Israelis in this case”.
Raymond Ibrahim spells out how this global pattern of Ethnic Cleansing and subjugation of Dhimmis are driven by the same Islamist Ideological subtext.
So what about these other angry Muslims in Egypt? They are of the same nationality and culture as the Copts—they are not Libyans, nor are they “ISIS”—they speak the same exact dialect. Some knew the Copts who were beheaded; some still know their mourning families. But to have a church honoring those slaughtered Christians is unacceptable, and prompts more attacks on Christians, including, as seen, on family members of those beheaded in Libya.
The reason for this animus is, of course, as simple to understand as it is taboo to mention in “polite society”: Islamic law makes unequivocally clear that churches must never be built or even renovated. As relics of a conquered people, churches must go the way of the dodo, one way or another… Even the aforementioned stipulations for the Samalout church to have no crosses, narrow side door, etc., are a product of Islamic documents, in this case, “The Conditions of Omar’.
That is exactly what Kashmir’s majority people in Valley are reading out- the Rules to live as dhimmis, spelt out by Calipha Omar.
Ethnic Cleansing by Kashmir Jihadis calls for Red Indian type Reservations for Pundit minority
We have checked and found exactly matching narratives in world history between Minority Ethnic groups in different Islamic majority societies. We have found the same motivating Ideology of Islamist Subjugation of Dhimmis, the same step wise progression from Persecution, to Ethnic Cleansing and attempted Genocides of the non-muslim minorities.
If we check for any Solutions or way out- we can see that there was indeed the Solution of Creating Sanctuaries. In fact, this failure to obtain for these minorities, such safe zones has lead to inevitable cycles of violence and suffering in hands of religious fanatics.
In the case of Yezhidis and Coptic Christians, it has lead them to the brink and extinction.
Eminent Middle East historian Bat Ye’or explains how part of this failure to save these besieged victim ethnic groups by Islamist persecutions are due to Political Correctness and Bias.
We saw tens of thousands of people walking in the main European capitals on behalf of the Palestinians that were showering Israeli civilians with missiles and shouting “death to Israel and the Jews”, but Christian agony in Muslim lands would bring only five hundred timid protesters out to the Parisian streets.
Since the 1970s, all European political parties have supported the Palestinians and Arab-Muslim interests.
But the historian also shows how such Victims of Islamist persecutions are often their own worst enemies.
Bat Yeor reminds us of one such Pundit of that variety of zealous pro- Islamist dhimmis, Pundit Nehru-
‘Eastern Christians were in the vanguard of the anti-Zionist European policy and like the Egyptian Edward Said, the severest detractors of the West, while magnifying the superiority of Muslim civilization.
The historian then provides an interesting insight to the Nehruvian mind that has not just eventually wrecked Pundit community but afflicted rest of India with a dead wieght of a Dhimmi Thought Culture. It has mutilated Indian history.
About this Islamist boot licking psychology Bat Ye’or says-
Of course, it was only the desperate shield of vulnerable Christian communities living under a Damocles spade, a population that could only survive in the Islamic sea by supporting the power that destroyed them.
The Caliphate’s policy revolts many Muslims even if most dreamed of the establishment of an idealized Caliphate. But in fact, Isis’s rules are those that were applied after the successful jihadist conquests of the Christian Middle East. The massacres, the enslavement, the expulsions, the ransoming, the destruction of monuments, books and legacy of former civilizations or their Islamization, are described in thousands of books throughout the centuries.
But since last century and Europe’s love story with the Palestinians, this history was forbidden in Europe and replaced with the Islamic view of history contrasting Muslim peaceful tolerance and Israel’s devilish nature.
Eastern Christians find refuge in neighboring Muslim countries with other persecuted minorities. The human trials which need international help are aggravated by the loss of historical identity, of centuries old treasures and of the memories of past generations enshrined in old books preciously kept throughout the vicissitudes of time.
These collective experiences weave the long history of dhimmitude, which is now returning with the enforcement of a strict shariah rule that had been adulterated in some Muslim countries by modernization. Hence, we see now under our eyes the reality of dhimmitude that has been consistently denied by political consensus.
Already, the Christian character of Lebanon has vanished as a consequence of the routing out of the proud Lebanese Christians by the Palestinians and their Muslim allies in the civil war of the 1970-80s, with Europe and particularly France, supporting the Palestinians
England and France were responsible for splitting Christian identity by persuading the Christians that they were Arabs and that they had to militate with Muslims for a new ideology: Arab nationalism that would suppress Zionism.
From then on, they became the Christian mercenaries of Muslim causes and particularly of the Palestinians later on.
This dhimmi militancy on behalf of Islam and its expanding domination altered their historical consciousness. Being vulnerable minorities, they were used so as to spread in the West anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli hatred in the West. They had to bury their dhimmi history to praise Islamic tolerance.
On the political level, France, England and America refused to grant to the Assyrians and Armenians an autonomous national territory after the First World War, fearing the rage of the Muslim population of their new Arab colonies.
They refused the Christian request for a protection in the new Arab states at the end of the mandate period, stating that their best protection would be their integration as Arabs in their new countries. The result was a great massacre of Assyrians in the 1930s.
It was the same with Kurdish demand for autonomy. Only the false Palestinian national identity based on jihad – created by France in 1969 – has become the consensus for the European Union hidden war against Israel. Having denied the history of dhimmitude, Europe now is living without knowing it under some dhimmitude’s rule, evidenced by its insecurity under jihadist threats. In a way, the extinction of Eastern Christianity might figure Europe’s own future.’
In other words- the extinction of Kashmir pundits might prefigure India’s own future, especially wherever Hindus are now turning minority.
The Global Islamist ethnic Cleansing can be rolled back only by reversing the drive, by Re-Ethnification of those demographics.
The international community has an obligation towards such victims of attempted genocides by Islamist movements.
The creation of such Sanctuaries is akin to Reservation lands for the Red Indians.
If needs be the Army or the UN must stand guard to ensure the survival, honor of lives, rights to properties, liberties and freedom.
These Sanctuaries for Yezhidis, Syrian Christians and Copts, Kurds, Buddhist Chakmas, Kashmiri pundits ensure not just survival of these victims of global Ethnic Cleansing drive by rising tides of Militant Islamist Ideology but also rescue humanity from creeping subjugation and fall into debasement of worldwide dictations of Dhimitude.
