Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 131

Note 1: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains months-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Sure, Abdullah Saleh of Yemen is a master opportunist, but the Hawthis  need to balance their ideology to keep the security and integrity of Yemen. He mounted a coup on his partners, failed and was assassinated when fleeing, like his predessessors

It is Not because we never trusted the Saudi Kingdom frenetic “dominion” policy over their neighbors that we have to keep trusting the mullahs and wilayat Faqih of Iran once their power take roots.

Dans mon cas, la “folle du logis”, l’imaginaire des reves diurnes demande plus d’espace et deplace la memoire des details.

Je suis un auteur amnesiaque, une ardoise du passe’ mal effacee’. Si j’ai ecrit mon autobiographie, c’est justement pour mettre de cote’ cette ardois de malheur.

J’ insiste sur l’atmosphere generale, les sensations, les actions et reactions: Les details du passe’ ne me viennent pas.

Une foret dense est une foret, une jungle enigmatique, touffue, une representation de l’obscurite’, de l’irrationale, de la folie qui guette a tout moment.

The third impression is that State influence is relatively weak; almost all the economy is privatized. Discrepancies in social earnings are balanced out by social and community feeling of responsibilities toward the less well off. (Einstein in 1940 of the USA)

The rich people are willing to re-distribute a large chunk of their wealth and offer their services to the communities simply because public opinion is strong and demands such tendencies (Einstein in 1940 of the USA)

The 5th impression is that the US citizen is generally not receptive to classical music and plastic art. (Einstein in 1940 of the USA

Is it a good enough proposal for Moslem Brotherhood to claim that women will not be subjugated to the same servile standards as in Saudi Kingdom, the most obscurantist Wahhabi sect, to enhancing freedom of opinion, liberty, and equal rights in Egypt, Turkey and Qatar?

Talleyrand said during the revolution, which culminated in a period of utter Terror: “The French had no idea that in the Regency (during King Louis 16), in their long history, they never had it so well and lived that well” . De Tocqueville demonstrated that France was the best Kingdom in Europe during King Louis 16

 

What’s happening in Yemen? Civil war not over yet? Previous oligarchy still in power?

The latest news from Al Qaeda claim that its fighters in Yemen have relocated to Syria to fight the regime there…If Al Qaeda organization is so flexible and agile, who is moving them around to the various “fresh” hot spots, before the previous hellish spot has not regain peace and tranquility? Who is still financing Al Qaeda and the radical extremist Sunnis?

The ousted dictator Abdullah Saleh is back in Yemen and running the political scene: He is saying that Qatar is exacerbating the conditions in Yemen by infusing millions of dollars to particular military groups…

Another news: The US weapon market share is two-third the world total of $85 billion!

Former Yemeni dictator Saleh  Add your voice for peace and security in Yemen,and we’ll deliver the message to German Chancellor Angela Merkel!

Sign the petition

In recent weeks, gunmen loyal to Yemen’s former dictator Abdullah Saleh have taken over the Defense and Interior Ministries, sowing panic in the capital and threatening to drag the country into a civil war which could spillover into neighbors Saudi Arabia and Oman.

Yemenis are worried that another civil war could erupt any day, after pro-Saleh gunmen took the Interior and Defense Ministries by force, killing guards and sending a chilling signal to other pro-democracy politicians.

Saleh and his cronies have already shown that they prefer to hand over parts of Yemen to Al Qaeda affiliates, who have been bombing buildings and kidnapping innocent Yemenis and a Saudi diplomat.

Such intimidation will continue unless Saleh’s clan is removed from politics once and for all.

The international community, particularly the USA, has been all but silent as the Yemeni people suffered. It’s time for decisive action from the European Union to save the situation and stop the bloodshed.

The best way to uproot Saleh’s crushing control is to strip away his financial might by imposing sanctions and freezing his assets.  Much of Saleh’s stolen cash is in Germany. If German Chancellor Angela Merkel leads a freeze on his assets, it could accelerate the end of his reign of terror.  Let’s make sure the EU takes this crucial next step to pull Yemen back from civil war.

Germany is a major donor for Yemen and also hosts the former dictator’s stolen assets, and can lead the EU in raising the financial stakes for Saleh and his murderous allies. Now the tension has come to a head, with the old guard seeing this as its last chance to seize power by the gun before democracy takes root.

If enough of us demand action, we can build tremendous pressure on German Chancellor Merkel to lead the charge and freeze the stolen assets — add your name to help pull Yemen back from the brink!

Avaaz members successfully petitioned to freeze both Qaddafi and Mubarak’s assets — let’s do it again for the Yemeni people. Add your voice, and this petition will be delivered straight to Chancellor Merkel when we reach 10,000 signatures:

With determination we are standing with people across the region in their struggles for freedom and dignity.
