It's a shame: those people have been tortured on Eminem's music

I would never have imagined –not even in my worst dreams- that the music that pleases my ear could be used as a torture.

But that is what actually happens when Americans suspect some people to belong to the Al Quaida network.
Shafiq Rasul and Asif Iqbal are muslims with British citizenship. Both were detained at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba in an American prison camp:

They have been forced to listened to rap music, Eminem’s music in particular at deafening levels.
Sometimes psychological torture can even be worst than physical torture.
The same misadventure happened to Mohammed Jaber, a Libenese pilgrim who wanted to visit Islamic holy sites:

We said we came only to visit the holy sites in Kerbala. They didn’t torture us physically, but they did psychologically by raising the volume of rap music all day until it became unbearable and by withholding food.

It could have been worst for Mr Jaber if he hated rap, for instance. But there is no excuse for such behavior from the American troops.

“I mean I like rap. Just imagine them playing jazz.”

Because Islamic faith is often confused with integrism, such confusions often occur. Muslims are often viewed as the enemy from the American side. Not every Muslim feels sympathy for Saddam’s regime. This confusion comes from a total misunderstanding of the Islamic culture and tradition in general.
It would be high time somebody stopped Bush’s worthless Iraqui war. Too many people have lost their young lives for nothing and mostly to serve President Bush’s interest.
I find it quite ironical to use Eminem’s music who clearly showed his opposition to the war to torture so called enemies. Moreover, it is really despicable and disgusting.
Everywhere in this world when human rights are denied, we need to raise our voices against injustice.
