RT: Media & establishment push for regime change but ignore consequences – Tulsi Gabbard

Media & establishment push for regime change but ignore consequences – Tulsi Gabbard
Most media outlets and politicians often ignore the deadly consequences of US regime change policy, including the rise of Islamic State, according to Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii).

I think that there has been a concerted effort both on the part of some in the media, as well as many in politics, and many in our foreign policy establishment seem to have been advocating for a continuance of these regime change wars, really ignoring the fact of what has been the consequence of these wars in countries like Iraq and Libya and Syria, where each time we have waged these wars, [it] has resulted in the strengthening of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda or the creation of ISIS [Islamic State, IS, formerly ISIL], and it has resulted in a tremendous amount of suffering and death for the people of these countries,” said Gabbard at a press conference, answering a question from RT’s Caleb Maupin.

LIVE: Tulsi Gabbard at Ideological & Legislative Responses to Terrorism

Click to Watch : Live Now

A unique combination of academic and legislative efforts, this press conference will present a coherent response to faith-based violence and terrorism.

In the past, we have seen sweeping generalizations about Muslims, Islamists or Sunni militants and false binaries between Islam and West, Muslims and Christians or Jews, Sunni and Shia, Saudi Arabia and Iran etc that misrepresent the specific issue of extremism and terrorism in certain sections of Wahhabi, Salafi and Deobandi (WSD) communities, driven by the exclusivist ideology of Takfir (Othering and violence). Our event will unpack this complex issue by focusing on the book “Faith Based Violence and Deobandi Militancy in Pakistan,” a primer for governments seeking an integrated and contextual approach to addressing terrorism. It provides an accurate, updated narrative that’s unconstrained by political correctness or by suppression from theocracies and despots.

A distinguished panel of trailblazing academics and legislators, including Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, will lead us towards solutions instead of perpetual conflict.

Panelists include:
Professor Jawad Syed
Professor Edwina Pio
Professor Tahir Kamran
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard
