I was recently drawn to an Arab intellectual who was delivering a lecture on violence. During his speech, he acquitted Muslims of any responsibility related to extremist ideas, absolved them of the guilt and alleged that the violence was part of an arrogant colonialist scheme planned by great powers. This rhetoric puts the blame of violence and terrorism in modern history on the narrative of the United States having supported Afghan fighters and the alleged role of US intelligence in the establishment of Al-Qaeda.
Violence in societies
One of the catastrophic mistakes is to consider violence as a new phenomenon, without going back to human history that is full of violence and murder.Fahad Suleiman Shoqiran
