European leaders are meeting to discuss ways to increase hostility for migrants, illegal or otherwise. Their whole focus is on putting blame on the migrants themselves and those who traffic them while ignoring the awful regimes that they are escaping from. Even less attention is given to the historical and current role that the European colonialist foreign policies play in supporting such murderous and cruel regimes. This is the ugly truth that the migrants are exposing, and the real reason why the elite will stop at nothing to prevent them.
The Global Britain that the British government is keen to promote can only mean increased support for brutal regimes, a consequent increase in migration, and even crueller hostility to the migrants as they get blamed to avoid scrutiny of the dirty foreign policies and practices of the privileged elite.
Human beings are distinguished by their humanitarian nature, such that they want to preserve humanity and save a drowning stranger, for example. Capitalism with its exaggerated materialism and selfishness hardly recognises such values, as it gives free rein to the “might is right” doctrine. The wealthy elite among the capitalists are so focused on their own enrichment that they are happily destroying the lives of most of humanity now as well as the planet for future generations. Everyone else is expected to quietly assent to their destructive behaviour despite the aching in our bones that such brutality is not right.
The migrants come to Europe to escape the misery and danger of life under the Western installed murderous and brutal regimes, only to find that Europe and Britain are deliberately becoming more hostile to foreigners by the day. European governments and their media accomplices are dehumanising all migrants and their descendants with policies of forced repatriation, citizenship removal, and open hostility upon arrival. The privileged elite are selling a lie to the indigenous citizens, that they are entitled and more deserving than those who arrived after them.
Capitalist democracies need to pander to the xenophobic whims of the electorate. Their leading elite even encourages them for immediate gains, regardless of the long term havoc such attitudes inevitably bring. They live for now, giving no regard for tomorrow. The colonialists destroyed Africa and Asia centuries ago, and they have continued to do so until this present day. They did not and do care about the misery they inflict on most of the world, nor the injustice of their greedy exploitation of foreign lands and people. The wealth of Europe is primarily the ill-gotten spoils of the slave traders, privateers, kingmakers, and colonialists of the past and present; yet the wealthy elite balks at the very notion that their privilege is not their entitlement and that others could have a claim on it too.
Islam does not grant privilege to one people over another based on their lineage or place of birth. This is the barbaric practice of the ignorant days before Islam. Sadly it has long been a European tradition which was further entrenched with the adoption of the capitalist ideology.
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ ذَكَرٍ وَأُنْثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ
O men, We created you from a male and female, and formed you into nations and tribes that you may recognise each other. He who has more integrity has indeed greater honour with God. Surely God is all-knowing and well-informed.
