Terrorism and Migration are the biggest concerns of Europeans

Migration and terrorism have become main problem for Europeans. These two issues took lead over their concerns about the economic situation and unemployment. Eurobarometer held a poll that included 34000 people from 34 European countries. According to this poll, 48% consider migration as one of the two most important issues that challenge the EU.

The second one is terrorism; 39% considered terrorism as important issue.


Most analysts when examining a problem concentrate on its consequences. Few think about the source of the problem. If one wants to solve a problem, one should be quite self-critical. Therewith it is financially unprofitable, which is critical since capitalistic values dominate the situation.  All this results in actions which do not solve a problem, but moreover worsen it.

If we use true approach while studying terrorism and migration problems it becomes clear that the cause of these problems is not in the so-called terrorists and migrants, but in the interference of the US, EU countries and Russia in the internal affairs of so called “problematic regions”. In fact, leading countries are the source of these two problems. You become convinced if you refer to history.

Formation of the abovementioned superpowers was due to colonial policy. Initially it concerned only Europe and Russia, but after WWII these countries were weakened, while the US on the contrary became stronger due to military deliveries and insignificant losses in this terrible massacre.

It was suggested to give up colonial policy and allow colony-states to become independent. We could believe in good intention of such an idea had it not been suggested by imperial states. In fact it was a political trick of superpowers, particularly the US, in order to redistribute spheres of influence in colonies. As it is known in the 20th century all countries became formally independent. But in fact the only thing that changed was the form of colonialism. In countries that were early colonies, we have rulers that are proxies of colonial states. These rulers depend on their masters by many means – economical, financial, political and military.

Instability of so called third world and developing countries caused by struggle between superpowers for new spheres of influence. For instance, war in Yemen between Sunni and Shias in fact is an attempt of the US to reduce Britain’s ruling elites and bring to power its political elite, which will be loyal to US. Similar situations are seen in many regions of the world.

Often conflicts are artificially roused in order to make countries dependent on superpowers. These superpowers claim that they want to deter problems. For instance, conflict between India and Pakistan. Similar political technologies are used to economically weaken countries that posses many resources.

There is a new reason for military escalation as seen during the past years in the Middle East region. Some movements and some countries want to end domination of superpowers. But it is a very difficult issue, since they are militarily forced to come back to superpower’s sphere of influence. People who held uprisings against tyrant rulers are forced to obey rules that are imposed on all nations by the permanent members of the UNSC, since these regulations were designed according to the members’ interests. In fact, these member-states use several plausible excuses and interfere in affairs of sovereign states, preventing their nations to choose their own future. This is clearly seen in Syria. Conflict in this country artificially delayed by western countries, since the people of Syria reject conditions of cease-fire as suggested by the international community. These conditions impose a secular nature on the Syrian state. The people of Syria desire to live in their own country according to laws that they consider true, according to Shariah – divine guidance revealed by Allah (swt), while rejecting man-made oppressive rules imposed on them.

Despite popular opinion, problem regions became as they are today not due to stupidity and malignance of their own nations or their irreconcilable contradictions. As was mentioned above, these problems are artificially created by foreign players. We also should mention that these countries still exist not by the help of international institutions, but inspite of this so-called “aid”.

These “problem countries” supply most of the migrants that have been blamed as the cause of problems for Europe. The people of Europe and the US should understand that these problems cannot be solved by building borders and travel restrictions. They also should understand that the real cause of these problems are their own rulers that while exploiting the trust of their own people rush to obtain more profit.

Allah Taala says very truly about these so called peace makers:

وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لاَ تُفْسِدُواْ فِي الأَرْضِ قَالُواْ إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُصْلِحُونَ أَلا إِنَّهُمْ هُمُ الْمُفْسِدُونَ وَلَكِن لاَّ يَشْعُرُونَ

“And when it is said to them: “Make not mischief on the earth,” they say: “We are only peacemakers.” Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not”.

(A-Baqara, 2:11-12)
