On stolen lands: Israeli colons rely on myths and racist laws

Note: Re-edit of 2014 post “Stolen Land: Israel built 150 Jewish-only cities”

Bostonians have been checking out the “ONE WORD” campaign in their subway system, describing Israel’s crimes against Palestinians.

The ad campaign was launched this week by Ads Against Apartheid (AAA), a local Boston-based nonprofit.

Boston subway ads are shocking– ‘and so is the reality on the ground’

The ads are currently running in Boston’s downtown State Street Station where they can be seen by upwards of 13,000 riders per day. AAA’s website states they are “challenging Israel’s commitment to peace”.

The ads have already made headlines– in Palestine and Israel that is.

Both WAFA Ads against Apartheid Launches Campaign Questioning Israeli’s Commitment to Peace  and Ynet,  MBTA approves pro-Palestinian ads in Boston subway quote Chadi Salamoun, the President of Ads Against Apartheid, and Richard Colbath-Hess, the NGO’s co-founder:

“The ads simply state the facts and are backed up with citations from credible human rights and international organizations, including the United Nations,” said Chadi Salamoun, the president of Ads Against Apartheid, who added that “if the ads are shocking, that’s because the reality on the ground is shocking.”

Richard Colbath-Hess, a Jewish-American faculty member at the University of Massachusetts, and the co-founder of Ads Against Apartheid, noted that

American tax dollars help the Israeli government maintain an incredibly brutal military occupation, which has denied the Palestinian people their basic rights for decades. These ads show what Israel’s occupation and apartheid really look like, and it is important for Americans to see that.”

Colbath-Hess told me that the ads featuring one word per ad– HOMELESS, VIOLENCE, and STOLEN–  each represented an aspect of Israel’s “unrelenting injustice towards Palestinians.” IMHO, the “ONE WORD” approach is in your face, educational and very effective:

Ads Against Apartheid is planning to expand the campaign to other cities all across America.

The campaign has other hard hitting ads up on their website too. Instructing readers to “Stop Talking, Start Acting” and support spreading the campaigns.

Here’s one featuring that pillar of Israeli zealotry Naftali Bennett, from AAA’s Peace or Land Series:

Who were sacrificed in ancient mass ceremonies?

Epidemics, Pandemics, calamities... Every century has its lot of mass deaths and massacre. In ancient periods, as easy and quick transportation was Not accessible to the masses, epidemics were mostly local.

Even wars were Not that widespread because armies were Not that large (forget what faked history recount of thousands).

Colonial massacres and decimation of autochtone people around the world.

Genocide on scales Never contemplated on ethnic basis, religious, basis, expansionist policies. American Indians in the North and South of the continent, Armenians, Jews, minorities, Christians (Catholics and Orthodox), Muslims in India and Myanmar, Congo, ISIS, Qaeda, Al Nusra, Israel apartheid policies on Palestinians, civil wars….

WWI, WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, Afghanistan, Iraq… Not mention the hundreds of smaller pre-emptive wars by the colonial powers (particularly USA).

And yet, it is the viruses and bacterias that devastated empires far more than stupid wars.

An epidemic every 100 years?

– 1320, the black plague.
– 1520, smallpox.
– 1620, a strange disease.
– 1720, the plague of Marseille.
– 1820, cholera.
– 1920, Spanish flu.
– 2020, the coronavirus.

Not counting Ebola, HIV, Sars, aviary viruses, pig viruses, bovine epidemics…simply because these epidemics were mostly located in Africa

It should never cross your mind that human sacrifice of babies and kids targeted healthy members of the community: They could Not afford it for survival

It is the deformed and handicapped babies and kids that were sacrificed in mass ceremony in order to alleviate parents gilt and tame the intransigence of mothers in front of the pressure of the community.

I dare believe that after the sacrifice, monster orgies were organized intended to grieving mothers.

Mothers had the opportunity to have another go for children, before they sink into a long period of lethargy and apathy.

The pressure of community is palpable in societies were mobility is minimal

Evidence Mounting: US military athletes to Wuhan spread Coronavirus during the World Military Games

Breaking News/Exclusive:

US Brought COVID19 to China with Fake Army Team for Military Games, Evidence Mounting

Aug 2019: US army biohazard labs shut down for failing safety checks.

The lab is in Washington State where the source of the outbreak started and have highest incidence of COVID-19.

Robert Redfield, CDC director, openly admitting and acknowledged that some cases of coronavirus were misclassified as influenza as the medics did not have an accurate test for the new epidemic at the time. He did not elaborate on when these misdiagnosed cases first appeared – saying only that “some cases have been diagnosed that way.”

Oct 2019: Military World Games in Wuhan.

Dec 2019: First COVID-19 case in Wuhan. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/05/health/germs-fort-detrick-biohazard.html 

In October 2019, the US brought 369 military athletes to Wuhan for the World Military Games. 

Despite having the largest military in the world, ten fold, the US came in 35th behind nations like Iran, Finland and Slovenia.

No video or photos exist of the US team, no records were kept, a huge team but a pitiful performance for the “best military” in the world.

The US team did so badly that they were called “Soy Sauce Soldiers” by the Chinese.  

In fact, many never participated in any event and stayed near the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, where the disease is said to have originated only days after the US left the area.

The US team went home on October 28, 2019 and within 2 weeks, the first human contact cases of COVID 19 were seen in Wuhan. 

The Chinese have not been able to find “patient zero” and believe he was a member of the US team.

They also have sources that say the US had misrepresented influenza that Trump claims has killed thousands, an influenza carried to China by the US team, an influenza that was really COVID 19, a disease developed in a military bio-warfare facility in the state of Washington, now “ground zero” in the US for COVID 19.

The Chinese claim, something censored in the US, that the inattentive attitude and disproportionately below average results of American athletes in the game indicate they might have been in for other purposes and they might actually be bio-warfare operatives, and that their place of residence during their stay in Wuhan was also close to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, where the first known cluster of cases occurred.[28][29]

RT/Moscow: The US army might have brought the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to China’s Wuhan, the city where the virus was first detected in the country, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Thursday.

“When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!” Zhao tweeted.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Lijian Zhao has demanded US authorities reveal what they’re hiding about the origins of Covid-19, going as far as to suggest the coronavirus may have been brought to China by the US military.

Pointing to a video of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Robert Redfield apparently admitting the US had several deaths from Covid-19 before they were able to test for it, Zhao called on the American watchdog to come clean in a tweet posted on Thursday.

Note1 :

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that what is now the Covid-19 pandemic was first reported as a coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, on 31 December 2019. The search for the deadly disease origin has been ongoing, with conflicting versions blaming the Wuhan food market and bats – a local delicacy – sold there in particular, while others opined humans might have gotten the virus from pangolins, an endangered scaly mammal.

Less orthodox theories suggest malicious intent, with the head of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards sensationally claiming last week that Covid-19 could possibly be “a product of a biological attack by America which initially spread to China and then to Iran and the rest of the world.”

So far, the problem with all of those theories, blaming both animals and humans, is that no direct causal proof has been established, while the identity of China’s patient zero also remains unclear.

And it’s not China alone: in Washington State – which seemingly identified and successfully isolated its first infected traveler, with dozens of contacts identified and monitored – the virus somehow began spreading anyway.

Even Steve Wozniak, Apple’s co-founder, at one point claimed he and his wife may have been the US’ patient zero after developing a bad cough on return from China. It has since emerged his wife’s diagnosis was “a sinus infection,”

Note 2: Although the USA virus lab in the State of Washington is the source of Corona, neither the US nor Europe made good use for prevention from the valiant confrontation of the outbreak in China. They missed the hard decision for testing centers and containment.

Who are behind all those genocides in the Middle-East at the start of the 20th century?

Again Christians and Armenians and minorities?

Who are those Donma sect behind the planning for the execution of these genocide? The Jews of Salonica who faked converting to Islam.

Note: Imperial Germany was in control of Turkey and its prime nemesis was Imperial Russia and encouraged these genocides of Christians supporting Orthodox Russia

«دونمة» المجازر… «دونمة» التقسيم 1

د. نسيب أبوضرغم

ونحن في الذكرى المئة لمجازر اليهود بحق الأرمن، على يد جمعية الاتحاد والترقي شكلاً، وبتخطيط من اليهودية العالمية أساساً، لا بدّ من الكشف عن حقيقة هذه الجمعية الطورانية، وبخاصة لجهة سيطرة اليهود عليها، ودورها في إحداث الخطوة الأولى من مخطط احتلال فلسطين والسيطرة على سورية الطبيعية والعالم العربي برمّته.

بدءاً، لا بد من تعريف «الدونمة»، فهي لفظة، تعني الظلمة أو الاستتار، اتخذها يهود سالونيك شعاراً لتحقيق أهدافهم في الإمساك بالدولة العثمانية، وإزالة المعوقات كافة من طريق وصولهم إلى القدس.

يقول المؤرخ Seton Watson: «إنّ الحقيقة البارزة في تكوين جمعية الاتحاد والترقي، إنها غير تركية وغير إسلامية، فمنذ تأسيسها لم يظهر بين زعمائها وقادتها عضو واحد من أصل تركي صاف، فأنور باشا مثلاً هو ابن رجل بولندي مرتد، وكان جاويد الأصل دافيد من الطائفة اليهودية المعروفة بالـ»دونمة». وكراسو Crasso من اليهود الإسبان القاطنين في مدينة سالونيك

وكان طلعت باشا بلغارياً من أصل غجري اعتنق الإسلام ديناً…». ويضيف واطسون: «إن أصحاب العقول المحركة وراء الحركة كانوا يهوداً أو مسلمين من أصل يهودي، وأما العون المالي فكان يجيئهم عن طريق «الدونمة» ويهود سالونيك الأغنياء».

بناءءً عليه، يكون أعضاء الدونمة هم من غير المسلمين الذين تظاهروا باعتناقهم الإسلام لتدمير الدولة العثمانية، والإمساك بمقدراتها وتوظيفها في خدمة المشروع اليهودي الجهنمي. «ولقد كان للدونمة في سالونيك دور بارز في الحياة السياسية والاقتصادية لتركيا الحديثة…

وكان أهم تأثير سياسي لهم عليها تركيا الحديثة مشاركتهم الفعالة في جمعية الاتحاد والترقي، التي قادت الانقلاب على السلطان عبد الحميد الثاني في بداية القرن العشرين 1908 ».

إن جمعية الاتحاد والترقي تمثل الترجمة السياسية والاقتصادية والثقافية لمضمون الدونمة، وكان بالتالي من البداهة أن يكون أركان هذه الجمعية من يهود الدونمة والماسونيين، ولأن لهذه الجمعية الدور الأساس في إخراج تركيا من روحها وشكلها،

لا بدّ من الإشارة إلى زعماء هذه الجمعية، للإنارة على الدور اليهودي الأساس في التخطيط لإسقاط الدولة العثمانية من تاريخها، عبر عملية التتريك بالفكرة الطورانية، الفكرة التي ما زالت تمثل حتى اليوم روح القومية التركية.

وللإضاءة أكثر على ما جرى، لا بدّ من كشف حقيقة الفكرة الطورانية والشخصيات التي ابتكرتها.

يقول المؤلف البريطاني إيليو غريننيل ميرز في مؤلفه حول «تركيا الحديثة» في فقرة مأخوذة من تقارير دائرة البحوث البريطانية الصادرة سراً حول الحركة الطورانية: «إن الطورانية في نشأتها محبوكة أ- فنياً، ب أوروبياً، ولم يختلقها العثمانيون من الأدب الفارسي لمصلحتهم، بل هي موحاة إليهم من الأوروبيين وهم لم يخططوا لها، بل خُططت لهم،

فالعثمانيون، إذن ليسوا مخططين، ولا متابعين لها، وإنما هم استغلوا كأداة ووسيلة وحسب».

وأيضاً فقد أورد سركيس كيفورك يورنسوزيان في دراسة بعنوان «ومضات من تاريخ كاراباخ» أن «مبتكري هذه النظرية الطورانية ليسوا أتراكاً، بل صهاينة يتحدر معظمهم من أصل يهودي، جعلوا لهذه النظرية عمداً وأساساً يرتكز إلى أن جميع الشعوب التركية تنحدر من أصل طوراني واحد الأتراك- التركمان- الأذريون- القرقيز- الأوزباك- الطاجيك…. ».

ولأهمية إبراز الدور اليهودي في عملية الاستيلاء على السلطنة العثمانية، وارتكاب المجازر باسم القومية الطورانية، لا بدّ من الإضاءة على أهم الكُتاب الذين أسسوا لهذا البناء الطوراني.

1 – المستشرق اليهودي أرمينيوس فامبيري، صديق حميم للسلطان عبد الحميد الثاني هو من أصل هنغاري .

2 – المستشرق اليهودي الألماني فرنزفون ويرنر، كتب تحت اسم مستعار مراد أفندي .

3 – المستشرق اليهودي البولوني قسطنطين برجتسكي، الذي كتب بِاسم مستعار مصطفى جلال الدين باشا ، نشر كتاباً عام 1889 «الأتراك القدامى والجدد».

4 – المستشرق اليهودي الفرنسي ليون كاهون، كتب كتاب «مقدمة لتاريخ آسيا».

5 – اليهودي آلبرت كوهين، كتب بِاسم مستعار تكين ألب .

6 – خالدة أديب مشكوك في أصلها ، ولكن توجهها صهيوني واضح، في كتابها «دولة بني طوران الجديدة»، لنلاحظ الشبه مع تعبير دولة بني صهيون ، تدعو فيه إلى سيطرة تركيا على الشعوب المجاورة، وقد سميت برسول الطورانية و»ملليت أناسي» أي أم الملكة.

7 – الكاتب ضياء كوك ألب من ديار بكر نشر كتاباً بعنوان «الأسس التركية» 1923 أثبت فيه توجهه الصهيوني.

يظهر من خلال ما ورد، أن إبداع الفكرة الطورانية كان بفعل اليهود والماسونيين،

وما كانت جمعية الاتحاد والترقي إلا الإطار التنظيمي لمشروع اليهود القاضي بإسقاط الدولة العثمانية والسيطرة على مقدراتها بواسطة يهود أظهروا إسلامهم،

والجمعية لم تتأسس حتى بقرار من هؤلاء اليهود الذين تزعموها، بل كان ذلك بقرار صهيوني رفيع.

يقول المؤرخ Seton Watson: «كانت هذه الجمعية إحدى إفرازات المجلس الصهيوني العالمي، كما كان قادتها وزعماؤها من الدونمة والماسونيين… أنشئت، بأمر من المجلس الصهيوني العالي بتمويل صهيوني عن طريق جاويد David اليهودي والصهيوني العريق».

ولقد اعترف أحد أعضاء الدونمة، قرة قش زادة محمد رشدي، وهو كان عضواً سابقاً فيها وأمام مجلس الأمة التركي في الثلث الأول من القرن العشرين: «بأن الدونمة ما هم إلا يهود باطنيون ولا يمتون إلى الإسلام بصلة».

كان لا بدّ من الإضاءة على المواضيع التي وردت، حتى يمكننا إظهار الصلة الوثيقة بين الصهيونية العالمية والأحداث التي أدت إلى سقوط الدولة العثمانية، وإبادة الأرمن وغيرهم من السريان والآشوريين، وبالتالي حكم تركيا عبر أحد أبرز قادة الدونمة مصطفى كمال.

كان لا بد من إبادة الأرمن في نظر يهود الدونمة، حتى تقوم القومية التركية،

وقد لعب يهود الدونمة دورهم بالكامل ونفذوا المجزرة بشكل وحشي، لم يشهد التاريخ البشري مثيلاً له، والناظر إلى أسماء الذين أوكل إليهم أمر الإبادة، يدرك مدى التماهي بين الصهيونية والطورانية والذي ما زال قائماً حتى اليوم.

وهم: جمال باشا السفاح، طلعت باشا، أنور باشا، د. ناظم باشا، بهاء الدين باشا، شاكر باشا، عزيز بك، جواد بك، عاطف رضا بك. وكانوا جميعاً من يهود الدونمة.

يقول رشيد رضا: «إنّ زعماء جمعية الاتحاد والترقي كلهم من شيعة الماسونية وإن من لوازم تشيعهم للماسونية قوة نفوذ اليهود فيهم وفي الدولة. وذلك يقتضي فوز الجمعية الصهيونية في استعمار بلاد فلسطين…» .

لقد أردنا من إلقاء الضوء على طبيعة حكام تركيا في بداية القرن وأصلهم اليهودي، لنربط في حلقات مقبلة، كيف أن الدور الذي رسمه اليهود للدولة التركية في بداية القرن، ما زالت تلك الدولة تقوم به حتى اليوم تحت مسميات عديدة.

يجب أن لا ننسى أن تركيا هي أول دولة إسلامية اعترفت بـ»إسرائيل»،

وتركيا هي الدولة الإسلامية الوحيدة المنخرطة في حلف شمالي الأطلسي، وتركيا هي معبر لأفعى التقسيم اليهودية، الذي تعمل له على مدى سورية الطبيعية.

ولا تنسوا كيليكيا والإسكندرون.

Jews in Israel agree on ethnic cleansing. Statistics might be higher for Jews Not living in Israel?

Note: re-edit of the article of 2016 “Nearly half of Israeli Jews believe in ethnic cleansing, survey finds”

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin called the findings a ‘wake-up call for Israeli society’

Lizzie Dearden @lizziedearden 

Almost half of Jewish Israelis believe Arabs should be “expelled or transferred” from Israel, a survey has found. (Is that why Israel built Walls of Shame around its borders that its constitution never delimited?)

A study carried out by the Pew Research Centre found that around one in five adults questioned “strongly agreed” with the controversial statement, which amounts to ethnic cleansing under some definitions.

The Encyclopaedia Britannica describes the act as “attempting to create ethnically homogeneous geographic areas through the deportation or forcible displacement of persons belonging to particular ethnic group”, while a United Nations report in 1993 additionally specified the use of “force or intimidation”.

(Actually, the Palestinians are Not different ethnically, and yet they have got to be transferred for economic reasons in order to acquire free lands and resources)

(Most of the Jews in Israel are from various ethnic background, so how this definition can stand if Not believing in religious myths and acquired privileges?)

Pew-Research-Israel.jpg

In Pew’s survey, 48 per cent of Jewish respondents said Arabs (Israel and Western colonial powers that established Israel try Not to say Palestinians in order Not to give them an particular identity) should be removed from Israel, while a similar share disagreed with the statement.

While 54 to 71% of Jews who defined themselves as ultra-Orthodox, religious or “traditional” supported such a step, only about 36% of the secular community did (They have vested interests in cheap labor?).

“While religious identity influences Israeli Jews’ views on the expulsion of Arabs, the survey finds that even after taking this and other demographic factors into account, Jews’ views on the expulsion of Arabs are most strongly correlated with their political ideology,” the Pew Research Centre report noted.

“The further to the left on the political spectrum, the more Jews are likely to oppose the expulsion of Arabs from Israel, just rhetorically.”

Those supporting the cleansing tended to be Russian-speaking, rather than Hebrew or Yiddish, male, and with a Jewish education to secondary level or below.

(Racist behavior emanating from internal feeling of Not being to the level)

Pew-Research-Israel-2.jpg

Reuven Rivlin, the President of Israel, called the findings a “wake-up call for Israeli society”.

“It pains me to see the gap that exists in the public’s consciousness – religious and secular – between the notion of Israel as a Jewish state and as a democratic state,” he added. (This President would have liked that 99% of the Jews agree on the transfer of the Palestinians?)

“A further problem is the attitude towards Israel’s Palestinian citizens.

Israeli Arab is the Israeli government’s definition of non-Jewish citizens and many members of the minority, who are predominantly Muslim, identify as Palestinian.

In the same survey, almost 80% of Jewish Israelis said Jews deserved preferential treatment in Israel, while a similar proportion of Israeli Arabs claimed they had seen discrimination against Muslims (and Christians).

The research appeared to show that all religious and ethnic groups had lost hope for a two-state solution, with half of Palestinians saying co-existence was possible compared to 40 per cent of Jewish Israelis.

The most recent round of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks collapsed in 2014, just before a 7-week war in Gaza, and tensions have worsened in recent months with a resurgence of violence that has seen an estimated 28 Israelis and 172 Palestinians – mostly attackers – killed.

Pew conducted through face-to-face interviews in Hebrew, Arabic and Russian with more than 5,600 Israeli adults from October 2014 to May 2015 for the research.

The survey used the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics’ definition of the Israeli population, which includes settlers living in the West Bank as well as Arab residents of East Jerusalem.

Note: Another urgent survey is needed, after the Trump pronouncement on Jerusalem and the realization of the Israelis that No effective preemptive wars are feasible anymore

Can we learn anything from Lebanon civil war (15 years)?

Note: re-editing this old article “Lebanon civil war revisited (Written in Jan 8, 2006 and published in 2008)”

I wrote in 1976 a lengthy article that was published, in two successive issues, by the university students’ newspaper of the Oklahoma Daily at Norman, on the subject of the civil war in Lebanon (the war has been less than a year in activities).

Unfortunately, I misplaced a copy of that article to compare my views with my current understanding of this calamity, although I think that I was on the right track even then.

Simply, the main facts of the civil war of Lebanon (1975-1991) points to the direction that it was an internally ignited and executed war, and entirely reinforced by external regional States in later planning, supply and logistics.

Since 1973, the Syrian regime of dictator Hafez Assad harassed Lebanon with almost impossible demands, and closed the borders for trade for 6 months in a stretch.

Basically, Assad was pissed off that the Lebanese government had decided not to declare war against Israel in September 1973, and refused to join the armies of Syria and Egypt of Sadat.

Hafez Assad wanted to have total control of the Palestinian Resistance Movement, under the leadership of Yasser Arafat (based in Lebanon).  Finally, Assad managed to control the major arms and arsenal depots of the Palestinian resistance through the Palestinian faction called Saika under the total control of Syria.

When the civil war in Lebanon started, the Palestinian forces could overrun the Lebanese army and the Phalanges Christian forces within a week, but Assad refused to open the arms depots to Arafat.

And the civil war dragged on for the coming 17 years, resulting in “religious cleansing” of major regions into self-autonomous cantons.

Since the Independence of Lebanon in 1943, our political system has been contained and maintained through the tacit alliance of the feudal, confessional and mercantile powerhouses of both the Maronite Christians and Sunni Muslims.

Then and now, I am convinced that the sectarian and conservative Christian Maronite political parties, with the complete support of then President Suleiman Frangieh and the high-ranking officers of the army, decided that a civil war was the only alternative solution remaining in their hands to salvage the crumbling confessional political and social status.

I reluctantly insert reviews of our past political system, solely for the benefit of the new generations of Lebanese, who cannot perceive the continuation of the past in our worsening present system.

We can reach as far in our past and attest to the vicious cycle of short periods of self-determination, lasting half a human life, making room to centuries of subjugation.

These cycles keep springing up as unbreakable as if our destiny is a series of hopeless attempts for independence from the neighboring power houses in Turkey, Persia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, or even Iraq before the 10th century.

I might as well start in 1969, with the unpublished agreement between Yasser Arafat and the Lebanese government on the location of the military bases of the Palestinian Resistance Movement.

The “Arkoub Land” in south Lebanon (bordering Israel) was to become a secured islands  from Lebanon law, army, and forces of order.  This agreement was signed in Cairo by Jamal Abel Nasser, Yasser Arafat, the Lebanese army chief Emil Bustany, the Prime Minister Rashid Karame and the minister of the interior Pierre Gemayel who was also the leader of the Phalanx (Kataeb) party.

Under the motto that “The strength of Lebanon is in his weakness”, secured by the charter of the United Nations, Lebanon successive governments, as early as its independence in 1943, could not agree on forming a strong army able to defend its border.

The successive governments refrained from investing in the southern regions, in the Bekaa Valley and in Akkar.  the southern “citizens” or more accurately inhabitants, of  Muslim Shia majority, did not receive any attention from the central government in the budget or development planning.

The Maronite Christians and Sunni Muslims feudal and conservative leaders figured out that any troubles in the south will not significantly affect the rest of Lebanon or destabilize its confessional political system.

When Israel started to retaliate for the Palestinian rocket launching attacks from the Arkoub Land and under various pretenses, the citizens in the south flocked to the suburbs of Beirut forming what was called the “belt of misery” The “Dahiyat”, currently the stronghold of the Hezbollah Party.

These suburbs would have major impacts on the process of the civil war in many respects.

In the years 1969-1975, the Lebanese university students were the vanguard for significant reforms of our outdated political confessional system, and the Capital Beirut was the scene of multiple demonstrations per month demanding the governments to pay more attention to the dreams and drives of the youth for a modern and fair political system.

The Lebanese University was the hub of these demonstrations, lead by the Communists and left leaning students who succeeded in winning the elections of the student councils throughout the University branches.

The popular support for drastic reforms signaled the feasibility of changes through democratic means, which scared the confessional forces to bypass the real issues and lay our problems to the existence of the Palestinian resistance factions.

In order to rally the moderate Lebanese citizens around their status quo system, the confessional forces hammered on the prerequisite of uniting around the army, whenever premeditated incidents led to direct military confrontations on a few refugees’ camps in the Christian enclave like Dbayeh and Jesr El Basha; those same camps that former President Camille Chamoun opened and later extended the Lebanese Nationality to the Christian Palestinians to vote for him and his coalition during the Parliamentary elections.

In few instances, the army air force dusted off its archaic and limited war planes as a show of force, and twice determined to enter the camps without much political success.

It is a fact that the Maronite political parties, lead by the Phalanges party, planned the civil war, started it and refused to negotiate a lasting ceasefire.

They initiated the mass killing and genocide tactics based solely on confessional status, with the strategy of cleansing the areas of Christian majority from any Muslim or Palestinian elements.

The cleansing process went two steps further as the war continued;

First, they evacuated their areas from every Christian members affiliated to secular political parties like the Communists and the Lebanese based Syrian National Social party, and

Second, turned the guns to the Christian confessional party members (The Tiger forces and Arz forces…) who refused to unite under the banner of the unique party of “The Lebanese Forces” headed by Bashir Gemayel.

They also invited the Syrian forces to cross the Lebanese borders once their war plans failed to produce the equilibrium in military forces: The phalange territories were close to be sacked by the Nationalist and “progressive” coalition forces.

They negotiated directly with Israel, the enemy of Lebanon, and secured military logistical support in arms, ammunition and training.  In 1982, they encouraged Israel to extend their invasion to entering our Capital Beirut in order to chase the Palestinians out of Lebanon.

If it were not for Sharon’s foolish decision to chase Palestinian resistance out of Lebanon, it is very probable that Lebanon would have become a substitute de-facto State for the Palestinians.

Fatal bacteriology labs: Where is OSHA to investigate safety?

Note: With the spread of Coronavirus, a man altered Sarl virus that can be transmitted by man, it was advisable to re-edit of an article I posted in 2010

There are 232,000 employed in bio-technology labs in the US.

Scientists manipulating fatal micro-organisms to fight “terrorist” attacks using bacteriological, virus, and genetically modified cells are succumbing to serious health hazards.

Many scientists and personnel in these labs have died from handling E.Coli, plague, anthrax bacterium trying to find corresponding vaccines and anti-bodies.

A study related to virulent agents registered 1,500 serious cases between 1979-2004.

There is this Federal Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA), created in 1972 with vast power for enforcing safety in private workplaces, trying to set new standards and regulations for these emerging hazardous workplaces such as bacteriological labs.

Government, Federal and States institutions, military, and public university are outside the jurisdiction of OSHA though the main regulations are applied for the safety of employees and workers.

The National Institute of Health (NIH) deals mainly in the health and infectious diseases in hospitals, pharmaceutical, and medical institutions.

The job of OSHA is far-reaching but not funded proportionally to its responsibilities, especially by Republican Presidents.

OSHA has only 2,000 inspectors to covering 7 million private enterprises employing 130 million workers.

Thus, 80,000 workplaces and factories are somehow inspected yearly.

The “descent” of OSHA for inspection of targeted factories is mainly based on statistics.  Rate of injuries, fatal accidents, and level of risks in certain categories of work trigger actions.

Companies that failed to keeping records of injuries or were lax in sending periodic statements will be harassed for months on and their administration  and managers tied up in inquiries, responding to questions, and resolving unsafe practices.

Current director of OSHA, David Michaels, declared: “Security and safety of employed people (in labs that create live micro-organisms) should not be sacrificed at the altar of progress.  The current standards are not sufficient for the safety of people working in an environment polluted with infectious agents.”

The standards are applicable to labs and factories manipulating chemical products.

Thus, OSHA has launched a campaign of investigation and surveying the levels of risks of infectious agents.   Suggestions and recommendations will be collected and appropriate standards promulgated on a consensus basis with barons of industries.

In the US, it is the flooding of the judicial system in cases levied against enterprises that gets institutions into high gears.

So far, Becky McCain (52 years) who worked as molecular biologist at Pfizer (at Groton and employing 3,500 individuals) confirmed that she was paralyzed by a genetically modified virus.  The jury warded her $1.37 million because Pfizer fired McCain when she raised the unsafe and insecure working conditions in the company.

Since university and military labs do Not fall within the OSHA register of injuries, then it is unknown how many cases similar to McCain is prevalent in the industry.

The federal government and the military have been experimenting with biological warfare since the surrender of Japan in 1945.

The Japanese bacteriological team or Unit 731 of General Ishii has been incorporated in the US military.  This team contaminated water sources in China with Cholera that killed over 10,000 Chinese.

German Nazi experimented on the Russians and Italians in WWII. Many more such warfares have been conducted and kept secrets in archives by the “Allied” too

China and North Korea suffered again of bacteriological warfare by the US in 1950 after they had witnessed the Japanese biological warfare in 1944.

Stephen Endicott and Edward Hagerman relied on declassified archives in the US and China when they published “The biological warfare; 1998”
