Double Faced-ness of the West

The Western world keeps on shouting loud that they are for freedom of speech. Was this not said by all the Western governments when blasphemous cartoons were published by newspapers in their countries? 

Recently, France has passed a law under which saying that Turks did not commit massacre of 1.5 million Armenians during 1915 – 1917 AD, is a punishable crime. Forgetting what are the facts (which may be otherwise), is this law not banning freedom of speech and for a matter which has no written records?  

Not agreeing that Adolph Hitler committed holocaust by killing 6 million Jews in gas chambers is already a punishable crime for which some persons had been punished and are behind the bars.  

Perusal of past history reveals that they have always been bent upon discovering fault in their opponents, especially, Muslims. When somebody speaks in favour of the atrocities and mass murders committed by the West, it is democracy and freedom of speech otherwise it is a crime.  

Would it not have been appropriate for Paris to examine its own horrible atrocities perpetrated upon the Algerian Muslims during their war of liberation from French rule in the 1950s?

Similarly, the genocide of the Bosnian and Kosovar Muslims by the Serbs in the 1990s is yet another subject needing a sympathetic consideration by the international community.

Stalin regime in the Soviet Union during early 1930s had murdered 7 million Ukrainians and sent 2 million to concentration camps which swell to 5.5 million by the end of World War II.

What about genocide of 2 million Soviet Muslims, including Bashkirs, Chechens, Crimeans, Ingush, Kazakhs, Tajiks and Tatars. In addition to these, was the killing of 2 million ethnic Germans, mainly consisting of women and children as well as the violent expulsion of 15 million more Germans molesting 2 million girls and women.

Why American forces killed one million Vietnamese from 1965 to 1973?  

Moscow’s occupation of Afghanistan in 1979 caused death and injuries to two million Afghans and drove 5 million into Pakistan and Iran. 

What about dropping nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki by USA mass killing of over 200,000 Japanese civilians, and destroying and occupying Iraq Afghanistan killing hundreds of thousands civilians.    

What Israel has been doing in the Middle East (with support from USA) and India in Jammu Kashmir for the last six decades and their military men raping women not sparing minor girls of 10 years and old women of 70 years?    Was it all democracy and act of human love? Could there be worst Hypocrisy than this?

  1. There are some aspects of truth in criticism of this restriction on freedom of speech. I read about this some time back. Not that I am surprised at this…

  2. You are right. The United States has such a mixture of people….and very scary wealthy families that have run the machinery behind the politics in Washington D.C. There were families supporting the Nazi’s….one of them being the Bush Family. The United States does not even care about what happens as far as Human Rights Violations within the country much less outside of the country. Bottom line is what the United States is all about. It is about Wealth and Power. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s people are expendable…and without value….unless you are a Bush….or a Cheney….or a Rumsfield…..or at the Pentagon.

    The United States does not champion Human Rights…unless there is something in it for those in charge of running the country. Money and Power are everything. People are nothing.

    Where this late great country went wrong was forgetting that it was it’s people that made it great in the first place. The United States is one great big psychopathic and sociopathic jungle.

    There are still matters that I ignored. What American government has been doing in South America, Cuba and Africa. They recruit needy youngmen of America and get them killed at the alter of their wealth collection.
