The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM), Islamic Council of Victoria and Vehid Causevic Need to Accept Culpability For Muslim Terror and Stop Shifting Blame For Their Own Evil To Other
Is the loss of just a single child and the unfathomable grief it tragically brings to a mother, to a father, to a sister, to a brother, to a nation, worth 'managing' a cultures terror in our Public Square to enable terror to escalate?
Kenya: State Needs to Change Counter-Terror Tactics
AllAfrica The Star, Nairobi, The writer Hassan Ole Naado is the deputy secretary general of the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims.
The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM) Needs to Accept The Culpability For Muslim Terror and Stop Shifting Blame For Their Own Evil To Other.
Being hateful of, being bigoted against, being fearful of a cultural codex which can and does inform such atrocities time after time against Other (inclusive of their own being determined the same) across generations, across the world is a wise and rational thing to do if one wants real peace and harmony in their streets, homes, communities, education and religious institutions.
Islam is not captured. The 'Few' consistently, constantly come from the 'many' as they must.
If the Islamic/Muslim codex was actually peaceful there would be no terror as the mental schema to be analogized into the murder of Kenyan university students would simply not exist. How can you hijack something to cause terror if terror did not inherently exist in the entity in the first place? It is psychologically impossible yet here you are claiming it is so. Despite the protestation of the 'many' of their innocence evil still emanates in such a manner that determines them culturally culpable for which families, communities, education and religious institutions does this evil emanate from?
Tell us where is this divide of this so called Is-Islam Not-Islam from exactly the same codex source utilised by all with in the Islamic/Muslim behavioral variance which determines them innocent you have to assume exists for your argument to be valid?
Tell us how in no way the beliefs, ethics, and values held by the 'innocent' Muslims frame the mental schema support for the terror against Other emanating from their very ranks?
"The time has come for us to be honest with ourselves and indeed each other. The radicalisation that breeds terrorism is not conducted in the bush at night. It occurs in the full glare of day in homes, in madrasas and in mosques with rogue imams. We must ask the question — where are the parents and families (communities, education and religious institutions) of those who are being radicalized?" said Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya's president "Our task of countering terrorism has been made all the more difficult by the fact that the planners and financiers of this brutality are deeply embedded in our communities."

"addressing the socio-economic .. that breed violent extremism" This is a complete lie because if it was true every culture which suffers the same if not worse would be informing the same behavioral variance as they do not it simply cannot be the cause. The fact is we have even in Kenya itself educated persons who had work actually pulling the trigger. Though you are correct in determining 'ideological factors breed violent extremism' yet you claim the Islamic/Muslim culture is not to blame even though it is their ideology which determines them to be an Islamic/Muslim culture which informs terror where other cultures do not in the same space.
So what Most Muslims do not involve themselves directly in terror this is not at all unusual culturally. Terror as a political weapon on such a scale has to be justified and authorized from a cultural codex a 'rational' model and have been utilised in such a manner by exemplars previously otherwise how does an individual know how to go from being non-violent to violent against Other. Individuals do no invent their own beliefs, ethics and values.
Your argument can be applied to a secular ideology and it was in the exactly the same way in the 1930s as you are doing now to excuse the so called liberal-moderates of an ideology with a genocide construct of Other where the terrorists consistently come from their ranks. Why should any culture have to put up with a another culture in their midst which has a cultural codex which can and does produce the 'few' to cause such tragedy?
Is the loss of just a single child and the unfathomable grief it tragically brings to a mother, to a father, to a sister, to a brother, to a nation, worth 'managing' a cultures terror in our Public Square to enable terror to escalate rather than confronting it and holding to account the cultures 'many' responsible for the 'few' continually being derived from their families, communities, educational and religious institutions?
If such families, communities, educational and religious institutions were really adherents of a cultural codex of peace there would be no terror, no codex construct of Other able to form mental schema of hate, bigotry to be analogized into reality to chase down our children in school yards, to chase down our children in university dormitories to be mercilessly murdered.

Have I sinned? What is a Genocide Construct of Other and Why it is formed?
Own it you are responsible yes you.
