Israel and the US Have Dropped Bombs on 8 Muslim Countries This Year

There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world today, with 49 countries having a predominantly Muslim population. Of these countries, 4 have been bombed by Israel, and 4 have been bombed by the US this year alone.

Here are the four countries bombed by Israel in 2014

1. Sudan (35.4 million people, 96.7% Muslim)
On July 21, Israel dropped bombs on a suspected weapon warehouse in Sudan. Israel alleged that the site stored weapons that were bound for Hamas in Gaza.

Israel has carried out other bombing attacks inside Sudan in recent years. In 2009, Israeli warplanes bombed a convoy of trucks in Sudan that was believed to be carrying arms to be smuggled into Gaza. And in 2012 eight Israeli planes struck a giant military factory outside of the capital, Khartoum.

2. Palestine (Gaza: 1.8 million people, 98% Muslim)
Israel is currently in the midst of an aerial onslaught and ground invasion in Gaza in what it calls “Operation Protective Edge.”

Previous bombing attacks carried out by Israel in Gaza include the 2012 “Pillar of Defense” assault, and the 2008-2009 “Operation Cast Lead” in which 1,400 Palestinians were killed, including some 300 children.

3. Syria (17.9 million people, 87% Muslim)
On June 23, a series of Israeli airstrikes killed four and wounded nine in Syria in what the Syrian government said was a “flagrant violation” of its sovereignty.

Israeli tanks struck a Syrian artillery launcher in 2012, and in 2013 Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes on at least three different occasions.

4. Lebanon (5.9 million people, 54% Muslim)
On February 25, Israeli warplanes hit a convoy inside Lebanon that it claims was carrying missiles.

Israel also attacked Lebanon in 2006 when it launched a 33-day war, and in 2013 when an air strike targeted an alleged armed group south of Beirut.

And here are the four countries bombed by the US in 2014

1. Yemen (26.0 million people, 99% Muslim)

The most recent occurrence of a US aerial attack in Yemen was on April 19 when a US drone strike killed at least 21 people, including a number of civilian bystanders.

The US has been waging a covert drone war in Yemen since 2009 in what it claims to be a counter-terrorism effort to disrupt al-Qaeda.

Drone attacks have become so prevalent that Yemen had to set up a counseling center to help children deal with the psychological trauma of US aerial bombardments.

2. Pakistan (196.1 million, 96% Muslim)

The most recent attack in Pakistan occurred on July 19 when a US drone fired several missiles killing eleven people.

In total, the US has carried out more than 300 aerial strikes in Pakistan, 90% of which have occurred during the Obama presidency. At least 168 children are believed to have been killed in these strikes, according to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

3. Afghanistan (31.8 million people, 80% Muslim)

The most recent aerial assault in Afghanistan occurred on July 19 during which four people were killed.

The US dropped 17,500 bombs during its invasion in Afghanistan in 2001 and has carried out at least 38,100 airstrikes since.

4. Somalia (10.4 million people, 99% Muslim)

Most recently, the US military carried out a missile strike in Somalia in January targeting a suspected militant leader with ties to al-Qaeda and al-Shabab.

Renditions, an underground prison and a new CIA base are elements of an intensifying US war in Somalia, according to Jeremy Scahill.

Ten Muslim countries bombed by US & Israel in recent years

Prior to 2014, the Obama administration carried out bombing campaigns in Libya and Iraq, bringing the total number of countries attacked by the US and Israel in recent years to 10. In each case, the country attacked has a predominantly Muslim population.

  1. This is amazing information. I had no idea both Israel and the US have bombed 4 countries each since January. And is it just a coincidence that all 8 (and 10 total) countries are Muslim? How come this isn't a headline in every newspaper?

    1. Because the major media is not owned by Muslims. But you do hear all about those terrible Hamas rockets bombarding poor little Israel, so that should provide a clue.

  2. Its even more amazing that more Muslims were not bombed considering all the terroism they commit .

    1. So, based on your criteria, because the US Marines and the CIA commit acts of terrorism, it is OK for people in the US to be bombed.

      1. I keep arguing for Crippling Sanctions. …US sewer, sanitation, and any water treatment can go once a Coalition of The Willing gets their Hate Week training… carpet bombing and land invasion can follow further disingenuous negotiations…and then torture is a must…

      2. It's called blowback. The US has made its bed…there are always consequences to military actions.

    2. I consider it supporting terrorism to foster ethnic strifes and neo-nazism in Ukraine and creating a civil war, or training extremist ISIL rebels (whatever they called themselves when US allegedly trained them) to overthrow a foreign governement.

  3. The USA & Israel are bigger terrorists than Hamas. They cause Hamas to become terrorists. The USA & Israel cause people in the Middle East to join Al Qaeda.

  4. If you look at it by identifying the aggressive parties or the ones attacking and destroying infrastructure of other countries and the countries who constantly protect each others actions in the united nations; it's not hard to work it out.

  5. a genocide against Muslims by U.S. and Israel is well underway but you won't heat a peep of it anywhere on the "mainstream news". This is why brown people from that region attack Christians and Jews. In the end of the day it is all about revenge. Unlike what people in the west think that Muslims are inferior and that is why they attack the real reason they attack is because they are avenging the deaths of their loved ones killed by U.S.A or Israel by American made bombs.!!!

  6. Right here in black and white. It is all spelled out, not hard to understand why people react the way they do when you read this. If people are only given the facts they can draw logical conclusions instead of all the other crap thrown in articles to confuse people. Thank you for the excellent article!

  7. Theman221,
    “a genocide against Muslims by U.S. and Israel is well underway”

    When in fact muslims are killing more muslims, how can it be others committing the genocide? What you say is total illogical nonsense.

  8. Prior to 2014, the Obama administration carried out bombing campaigns in Libya and Iraq, bringing the total number of countries attacked by the US and Israel in recent years to 10. In each case, the country attacked has a predominantly Muslim population.

  9. This is no surprise as all of these countries are harboring terrorist. And Lebanon is like Half Muslim – Half Christian, Druze, and other religions.

  10. Thank you for making the honest effort to discuss this. I feel very strong about it and want to learn more. It could be extremely useful and helpful for me and my friends. check it up

  15. EVERY YEAR,MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE BECOME VICTIMS OF RELIGIOUS CONFLICTS AND SOME OF THEM DON'T EVEN THINK THE WAY BOMBERS DO.
    I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU PEOPLE THINK BUT TO ME THERE ARE ONLY TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD;GOOD AND BAD AND IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEIR TYPE DEPENDS ON THE RELIGION THEY BELONG TO OR THEIR SKIN COLOR,IT DEPENDS ON THE NATURE THEY'RE BORN WITH
    I AM A MUSLIM AND I WON'T SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT ANYONE'S RELIGION BECAUSE I'VE SEEN MANY GOOD AND BAD PEOPLE AND EACH CATEGORY INCLUDES MUSLIMS AND NON MUSLIMS
    SO THE MAIN PURPOSE OF ME WRITING THIS COMMENT WAS TO STOP PEOPLE FROM HARMING OTHERS BECAUSE OF THEIR RELIGION BECAUSE EACH AND EVERY RELIGIOUS STATE HAS GOOD AND BAD PEOPLE
