They say that there are 22 States acknowledged in the Arab League.  First, there are no clear criteria for inducting a State as Arab; may be Arabic is one of the official language?  Second, nobody knows what are the functions of this Arab League that was established in 1946 and that no one takes seriously (ask Amro Moussa, the current all-powerful Egyptian chairman).  Third, if you can name a dozen of the Arab States then you are eligible for a diploma in political science.

Invariably, every single Arab State share one important traits with the remaining States, a trait that should be included as one of the criteria for further expansion of this invisible Arab League:  Mainly, every monarch, dictator, one party power, or block of victor parties (elected under a makeshift election law) considers that the State Treasury is his own to use regardless of regulations or makeshift control systems.  The reverse is not applicable:  Mainly, my money is never to go to the Treasury and no taxes should be imposed on me, my family, my extended family, my clan, my tribe… For example:

Ask the Saudi Royal Family and the 5,000 descendents of Ibn Saud.

Ask the Hariri clan in Lebanon:  The ex-PM Saad was fired two weeks ago.  The family, headed by Rafic Hariri, took power in 1992 till two weeks ago.  Rafic came in with barely $one billion as an entrepreneur in Saudi Arabia and was assassinated leaving $14 billion to his family.  The Hariri clan paid only one million dollars when it should have paid over one billion!

Ask Ben Ali, ex-Tunisia President who ruled for 23 years and is now a political refugee in Saudi Arabia.  Do you believe that 14,000 of his party members were on the monthly payroll?  Every single member of his family and in-laws had a monopoly on the economy.

Ask Mubarak, President of Egypt for life, actually packing for an extended leave of absence to Saudi Arabia, for a thorough health check-up at the ultra-modern King Abdallah Hospital having no medical staff to running it.  Hell, it barely rains in Saudi Arabia, but the city of Jedda defies the odds:  It floods every year and drown in a couple of millimeters of water, killing 500 Saudis, every year.  And the Saudis are wondering: “where all these billion have been spent?”

Ask Muammar Qadhafi, God knows what title he has invented as of today, but he has been ruling Libya forever and nobody knows if there is a State Treasury per say.  Qadhafi was beside himself as his best friend Ben Ali departed without warning or saying “good-bye”.

Ask Abdallah Saleh, President of Yemen, who has been ruling as President for life and packing his suitcases to leave somewhere.

Ask the “Palestinian Authority” or Fateh how the treasury is accounted for.

Ask the King of Jordan, with an extended family quickly outpacing the Saudi Royal family.

Ask the King of Morocco.

Hell, ask Israel.  No State stays in this region and could resist emulating our excellent policy on money handling.

A second interesting feature that all Arab States share is:  The government is mine; if I cannot change it quickly then I install a shadow government to generate profit quickly to my own treasury.  Every member of the extended family or clan or close party members are “embedded” in every government institution.  No, the US military had invented nothing new when it embedded journalists and news “professionals” to lie to all the common people.

A third fantastic features that all Arab States share is:  Only my party members or my extra extended tribe members have unquestionable priority to government positions, civil service, and public contracts.  There is no use to waiting for older civil servants to go to retirement:  You get out voluntarily or you go to jail for “fraud” and mishandling of money and taking bribe to make ends meet.

A fourth extra smart characteristic that all Arab States share is:  media was created to disseminate our noble character.  We wholeheartedly welcome expressing free opinions about how good, brave, honest, clean, people loving we are.  We are the most integral leaders in the entire world and we are most generous to our faithful allies; just read what our unique daily boasts about our regime.

Is you State sharing the Arab States Syndrome?  Get on the move and help your oligarchy packing their suitcases:  They are so lazy to pack and refuse to pack anything but gold and jewelry.
