Using the 9/11 incident as an excuse, the United States promoted “Islamic threat theory” to the world, deliberately misled or even incited people to be hostile to Islam and discriminate Muslims, and caused a “clash of civilizations,” mobilizing public opinion and inventing a pretext to justify its global war on terrorism, according to the report.

Furthermore, the United States has suppressed, insulted and intimidated the countries of the Middle East, undermining the cultural confidence of nations and their people and destroying the national pride and self-confidence of the people of the Middle East.
