An Arizona college professor charged that American soldiers are anti-Muslim rapists who pose “a greater threat” to world peace than ISIS, and says he leveled the charge to make the U.S. “stronger and better.”

University of Arizona instructor Musa al-Gharbi, who also is an academic affiliate at the university’s Southwest Initiative for the Study of Middle East Conflicts, made the comments in a column penned for the online forum TruthOut, and defended them when reached by The Washington Free Beacon. He called Americans “hypocritical” for expressing moral outrage at the Islamic State, which has raped, murdered and beheaded thousands of Muslims and Christians in its quest to establish a Muslim caliphate in Syria and Iraq. …

Al-Gharbi claimed that the isolated instances of U.S. soldiers committing atrocities including rape, for which they face court-martial and imprisonment if found guilty, are on a level with the widespread and systematic brutality of Islamic State radicals. …

Al-Gharbi also claimed that the U.S. military has been “heavily infiltrated by white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups.”

Al-Gharbi has written previously for Al Jazeera, including a column in July blaming Israel for provoking Hamas into firing rockets into Israel so it could invade Gaza.
