(PRWEB) July 22, 2005 -- London seems to be the front line of fire with
terrorists who have been incubating in the Middle East for decades. The London
bombings show there has been a major shift in their positioning to the heart of
Europe. The burning questions is: Now that we know they are living among us how
can we stop them?
There are many elements to consider: We canít fight someone whose strategy we do not know. The UK Government, as well as other governments, needs to fight terrorism in its own way. Terrorists preach hate. They can only continue to proliferate if they have followers.
First: Undo the brain washing of their followers. The strategy is simple: No followers = No suicide bombing. The civilized world must identify reputable mullahs who are willing to condemn terrorists and announce that whoever follows terrorism will be shunned from the Muslim community. Most terrorists do not know that their radical leaders are actually preaching against the tenets of Islam. All mullahs are not the same but too many fear the potential consequences of denouncing terrorism.
Second: Shun all the radical mullahs. Get them out of the mosques so they cannot attend and preach. Higher Muslim authority must strip them of their power. We must throw them out of the country and out of our communities where they preach hate to the youth.
Third: Move on with our lives. A great philosophy, but I caution people that they must keep the past two weeks in the back of their mind. They should move on but they also must be vigilant. Dedicated terrorists have the advantage of being fearless, even as they wreak havoc with transit bombing for the purpose of creating fear. People must be vigilant but calm and use common sense and caution. The best way to stop the terrorists is for people to know their neighbors and create a neighborhood watch program. If they see suspicious people in their neighborhood or their family, they must let the police and authorities know. No matter how many police are on the streets, they cannot be everywhere at once.
People need to understand that the terrorist's war is not only against governments but also against people. It is people who were killed in New York on 9/11 and in London on 7/7. It is up to people to have the will to stop them.
Lastly: Media plays a great role in the fight against terrorism. The problem is: they cover the attacks non-stop for two days, until people are numbed, then drop it favor of the next celebrity gossip until the next attack. This is a bad marketing plan that helps the terrorists. People need to be repeatedly but less intensely reminded of the horrors of terrorism. If we donít keep people aware, this gives terrorists an opportunity to strike again, closer to home.
I am the author of a political/ controversial book "Living in Hell", as the result of my appearances on Voice of America. I am getting hate mail from the radicals and government of Iran followers.
