I just read from the Hadith, Koran and accounts Muslim history. There has indeed been a construction of a Muslim enemy. The man responsible was named Mohammad.

Imo, no one "needs" to construct a Muslim enemy. All that is required for enmity to exist is for two equally strong opposing ideologies to live in too close a proximity to each other. There can't be an enemy if you aren't one as well. That being said, passivity will get you killed.

In the late '30s Neville Chamberlain chastised his own for "constructing a German enemy" where, he believed, none existed...

Chamberlain is best known for his appeasement foreign policy, and in particular for his signing of the Munich Agreement in 1938, conceding the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany
