An American Conspiracy

‘I personally feel that it was a very conscious decision on the part of the Americans to rekindle the Shia-Sunni tensions in the region. It was one of their main aims. The Americans have succeeded beyond their expectations in Iraq. What we are seeing now is a culmination of what the US started in 2003.’ - Former ambassador Chinmaya Gharekhan (Rediff News, 19 June, 14)
Americans indeed created the sharp sectarian divide (Shia-Sunni conflict) in Iraq and beyond. Agreed, this sectarian conflict has been Islam’s bete-noire right from the beginning, but it became acute because of the tacit involvement of the US as a strategy to defeat resistance to their occupation of Iraq.
If we dispassionately study the unrest in the Islamic world in the last half century, the dubious role of America cannot be condoned because it’s too blatant to be brushed aside. America suffers from Islamophobia and wants Islam’s obliteration from the face of the earth so that ‘god’s chosen faith’ (Judaism) can reestablish itself.
Entire America is very much pro-Semitic. It can accommodate Judaism, but can’t accept Islam. The US is controlled by the Jewish lobby and the world knows that Islam and Judaism have been at loggerheads with each other, especially since the emergence of Israel, so much so that reconciliation or rapprochement seems well-nigh impossible.
The US has an axe to grind and a hidden agenda to perpetuate the sectarian bloodshed in Iraq and neighbouring countries. US believes that Muslims will be decimated in the internecine conflicts that are escalating rapidly to engulf the Islamic world.
