Video of this calculated diatribe by a Muslim TV host calling out ISIS for all of the myths and lies that they so desperately want the world to believe is going viral for all the right reasons.
Waleed Aly, host of the Australian talk show The Project, exposed how Daesh is “weak” and a total fraud. Aly, who also lectures at Monash University’s Global Terrorism Research Center, takes Daesh to task with facts and truths that the Islamic State doesn’t want you to hear.
Aly astutely points out that Daesh takes credit for any act of terror, even if it is a lone wolf attack that had nothing to do with ISIL. The reason is to bolster their brand and appear to be able to strike anywhere in the world. It’s actually something Daesh has addressed in their monthly magazine, Dabi. An article encouraged ISIS sympathizers to credit Islamic State for DIY terrorist attacks so they don’t appear to be “random killings.”
Aly discusses how Daesh wants a “great war,” and to do so they split the world into two distinct camps—-those who have “faith” and those who are in “disbelief.” They want to force Muslims to pick one side, and Daesh wants them to feel guilty and think they need to support their cause in order to be religious and not one of the “nonbelievers.”
“[ISIS] wants you to fear them. They want you to get angry. They want all of us to become hostile,” Aly says. “They want to start World War III. A global war between Muslims and everyone else. They want countries like ours to reject their Muslims and vilify them.”
In the moving lecture following the Paris attacks, Aly warns that Islamophobia and hate will only strengthen Daesh’s despicable cause.
“If you’re a member of Parliament or a has-been member of Parliament preaching hate, at a time when what we actually need is more love, you’re helping ISIL. They have told us that. If you’re a Muslim leader, telling your community they have no place here or a non-Muslim basically saying the same thing, you’re helping ISIL. They have told us that.”
Aly condemned any keyboard commandos on social media spreading hate, “If you’re just someone with a Facebook or Twitter account, firing off misguided missiles of hate, you’re helping ISIL, they’ve told us that. I’m pretty sure that right now, none of us wants to help these bastards.”
“We all need to come together, I know how that sounds. I know it’s a cliché, but it’s also true because it’s exactly what ISIL doesn’t want,” the TV host said in the powerful monologue.
Aly reveals that “ISIL is weak,” and that the terrorist group is much smaller than they appear and can be defeated if nations made a unified and concerted effort in eradicating them.
The brilliant video has rightfully gone viral and viewed over 20 million times on Facebook alone.
