IMF was Not set up to give the people any priority: A tool for “Moral Entity” of multinational financial conglomerates

https://www.facebook.com/LebanonSupport/posts/3130843070281048

“In the history of the IMF, the people have never been a priority” says Juan Valerdi, previous advisor to the Central Bank and professor of macroeconomics at the University of La Plata, Argentina, in our latest #DebunkingIMF video.

Since this joint campaign with ANND started, we have managed to bring nuance to the public discourse on IMF bailout programmes and to highlight their high social costs and negative impact.

Watch the video for more of Prof. Valerdi’s insights, based on the Argentine experience with the IMF.

The latter have notably protected local oligarchies and funded capital flights – issues that are strikingly similar to those of Lebanon – which thus contributes to maintaining the status quo rather than provide solutions  to the needed poorer classes.

Note: Argentina, like Lebanon, is being squeezed by the US and Israel in order to permit easy immigration of Jews to greener pastures, such as Patagonia.

Actually, Patagonia has been the prime destination of middle class Israelites, fleeing this tiny and inhospitable Palestine.

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

Israel and Jews have annexed the city of Kerkouk in north Iraq. Why that mass flocking?

As USA invaded Iraq in 2003, Israel Mossad flocked to Northern Iraq, and settled in Kirkuk.

Kirkuk is basically of majority Kurdish and the potential of 60% of oil reserves in Iraq.

For the duration of this invasion, the Israeli “secret agents” assassinated over one thousand (1,000) Iraqi scientists. and professionals within a single year.

Jewish “investors” (principality of Iraqi origin) are purchasing swathes of lands in the Kirkuk province for potential oil production.

Last week, 6 of Israel Mossad agents were assassinated.

The tide has turned, and Israelis have to start packing and vacate this province.

لماذا يعود اليهود الى كركوك؟
…………………………………….

(خبر يمر عاديا في نشرة اخبار اذاعة الشرق هذا الصباح:

اليهود الاسرائيليون من اصل عراقي يعودون وبكثافة الى العراق، ويتمركزون بشكل خاص في كركوك حيث يشترون الاراضي بخمسة اضعاف ثمنها الحقيقي.)

هذه الفقرة الاستهلالية كانت مدخلا لمقال الكاتبة الاردنية المبدعة، حياة الحويك عطية، في جريدة الدستور الاردنية، قبل بضعة أيام. ثم طرحت سؤلاً، بألم بالغ، أحسست بمرارتها، لماذا كركوك؟
وقبل أن نجيب على سؤالها، ، نود أن نشير الى ان الخبر ليس بجديد، فبعد أحتلال العراق في ٩ نيسان، أبريل ٢٠٠٣، تدفق مجموعة من عناصر الموساد الاسرائيلي الى العراق، تحت مسمى شركة الرافدين، وشركات وهمية اخرى.

بلغ عدد الدفعة الاولى ٩٠٠ جاسوسا، قامت بتشكيل فرقة خاصة لتنفيذ مهام الاغتيالات لكوادر وشخصيات عراقية، سياسية وعسكرية واعلامية وعلمية وقضائية، بالتعاون مع ميليشات احد الاحزاب العراقية المعروفة، طالت ١٠٠٠ عالم ومتخصص عراقي خلال عام واحد.

ثم انتقل (٤٥٠ عنصرا) منهم، من العاصمة بغداد الى مدينة كركوك.
يقع مركز ادارة عمليات فرقة الاغتيالات الاسرائلية فى مدينة كركوك، حاليا، فى منزل قريب من مبنى محافظة كركوك وتضم ضمن عناصرها عددا من الأكراد الذين كانت المخابرات المركزية الأمريكية قد نقلتهم من شمال العراق عام ١٩٩٦ الى جزيرة (غوام).

يتحدث معظم أفرادها اللغة العربية باللهجة العراقية بطلاقة اضافة للغة الانجليزية.

كثفت الفرقة الاسرائيلية جهودها منذ بداية العام الحالي في شراء الاراضي والدور السكنية والمزارع في كركوك وضواحيها، فضلا عن استمرارها في تنفيذ عمليات الاغتيالات التي طالت شخصيات سياسية تركمانية وعربية وكردية وقصف المقرات الحزبية للتركمان والاكراد في كركوك، بهدف اشعال الفتنة العرقية.

انتبهت المقاومة الوطنية العراقية لفعلهم الجبان وقامت بقتل ٦ افراد من عناصرها في المدينة في بداية العام الجاري. وما زالت هذه العناصر نشطة في كركوك وبغداد وبابل بالاضافة الى شمال العراق.
على أية حال، لماذا كركوك؟

أما السبب الثاني، وكما هو معروف، فأن هذه المدينة تضم حوالي ٦٠٪ من الاحتياطي النفطي العراقي، ويعتبرمن أجود انواع النفط الخام في العالم وحسب الخطة التي وضعت في عهد النظام السابق، فأن أعادة تأهيل المنشاءات النفطية فيها تحتاج الى استثمار ٨ مليارات دولار لكي يرتفع انتاج حقولها الى حدود ٥ ملايين برميل يوميا.

وبما أن أبواب السلب والنهب قد فتحت على مصراعيها في العراق بفضل الاحتلال، فأن الرقم ربما سيرتفع الى ١٦ أو ٢٤ مليار دولار، ولهذا يحاول اليهود من الان شراء أكبر قدر ممكن من الاراضي فيها لتحويليها الى لاس فيجاس الشرق الاوسط.

أن المبالغ المرصودة، للاستثمار في المنشأءات النفطية في هذه المدينة، لا يسيل لها لعاب اليهود فقط وانما يسيل لها لعاب الوحوش أ يضا.
وأما السبب الثالث هو، ان ” اسرائيل ” قدمت عرضا الى الزعيمين البرزاني والطالباني بحماية الدولة الفيدرالية الكردية من اي خطر سواء من داخل العراق او من تركيا وسوريا وايران.

وحسب الخطة الامريكية- الاسرائيلية، فأن كركوك ستكون عاصمة الدولة الكردية، لذا فأن التواجد اليهودي فيها أصبحت ضرورة استراتيجية لقربها من تركيا وايران وسوريا.
لقد بات واضحا ان امريكا غزت العراق من اجل حماية اسرائيل وجعلها القوة العظمى الوحيدة في المنطقة، وتثبيت اصدقائها علي قمة السلطة في بغداد، وطمس هوية العراق العربية والاسلامية، وقطع كل صلاته بتاريخه الحضاري العريق، وتوتير علاقاته مع دول الجوار دون أيلاء أي اعتبار لحقوق الشعب العراقي

بعد هذا ليس بنا من حاجة في الدخول في تفاصيل لاتغني ولا تسمن وليسمع من به صمم.

Popular sayings of around the globe on the Jews.

From Armenia, Roman, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Greece, Russian, Serbia…

Basically, when the Jews monopolize the printing of money in a country, no grass will take root.

People build and then the Jews follow to demolish

Until Israel was “created”, all the western colonial powers, including Russia, wanted to chase out the Jews from their midst.

That is why they created a “homeland” for the Jews in Palestine: basically, a mercenary State with objective to block all daily trade and communication among the one people in the Near-East.

أمثال تاريخية لشعوب حول العالم بحق اليهود .

1.( مثل أرمني ) : اليهودي إذا لم يجد هناك من يقتله ، يقتل أباه .

2.( مثل آشوري ) : للشيطان وجوهٍ عديدة ، إحداها وجه يهودي .

3.( مثل روماني ) : إذا باض الديك البيض ، عندئذ يصبح اليهودي إنساناً .

Golden plaques on streets testifying these Jews fled, “transferred themselves” to Palestine

I read an article written in “Arabic” and posted on FB. I felt the urge to translate the gist of it.

An “Arab” was walking streets in Germany and noticed golden plaques on the streets, with name and destinations. He asked a German person to enlighten him on these plaques and their stories.

The German told him these plaques are in commemoration of Jews who lived in this bloc and were “forced” to leave during the Nazi regime.

Many of these plaques mentioned Palestine. This “Arabic” person asked: “what that means?”. “Well, these Jews went to Palestine”.

“And where is Palestine? I searched Google and there is no location of Palestine”.

“Well, it is now called Israel”

” Were these fleeing Jews welcomed and treated with civility in Palestine?” “Yes, we heard no complaints from them”

“Are you telling me that my grandparents welcomed the fleeing Jews and now the parents and children of these Jews have chased us out of our land?”

“Well, this world is Not just” said the German citizens.

The Palestinians are intent on returning Home, Not because of the UN resolution of 193 for their right to return, but because it their just right: the right to return Home.

For over 6 months, every Friday, peaceful Palestinians in Gaza flock by the thousands to the “demarcation line”. And every Friday, Israeli snipers kill and injure Palestinians by the dozens, children, youth, women, journalists, paramedics…

Hundreds were killed and thousands handicapped and injured, and the world community is behaving as if it is helpless to control this apartheid colonial State of Israel.

 

 

The shared genetic heritage of Jews and Palestinians

The Times recently carried this unusual report on an Israeli Jew (Tsvi Misinai, a retired computer expert) who’s hoping to prove that Palestinians are descended from Jews.

Apparently, he thinks that proving this will help to stop the bloodshed. His idea is that modern Jews are descended from emigration in the first few centuries of the Christian era. The Jews who stayed put in Palestine converted to Islam, and became Palestinian Arabs. There’s hope that genetic tests might be able to prove this.

There is good news and bad news on that score.

Hammer_2000_Jew_Arab_YchromosomeThe good news is that the genetics of Arabs  (Palestinians?) and Jews have been pretty extensively researched.

The classic study dates to 2000, from a team lead by Michael Hammer of University of Arizona. They looked at Y-chromosome haplotypes – this is the genetic material passed from father to son down the generations.

What they revealed was that Arabs and Jews are essentially a single population, and that Palestinians are slap bang in the middle of the different Jewish populations (as shown in this figure).

Another team, lead by Almut Nebel at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, took a closer look in 2001. They found that Jewish lineages essentially bracket Muslim Kurds, but they were also very closely related to Palestinians.

In fact, what their analysis suggested was that Palestinians were identical to Jews, but with a small mix of Arab genes – what you would expect if they were originally from the same stock, but that Palestinians had mixed a little with Arab immigrants. They conclude:

We propose that the Y chromosomes in Palestinian Arabs and Bedouin represent, to a large extent, early lineages derived from the Neolithic inhabitants of the area and additional lineages from more-recent population movements. The early lineages are part of the common chromosome pool shared with Jews (Nebel et al. 2000). According to our working model, the more-recent migrations were mostly from the Arabian Peninsula…

So, as far as male lineage goes, the genetic story is very clear. Palestinians and Jews are virtually indistinguishable.

Women are a bit more tricky

Up until last year, the matrilineal heritage of Jews also seemed pretty clear. Analysis of elements in mitochondrial DNA (which is passed from mother to daughter) seemed to show that Jewish populations around Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East were derived from at least 8 unrelated ‘founding mothers’.

Where they came from wasn’t clear, but the most likely explanation was that they were from local populations that bred with immigrant Jewish males. Their offspring became absorbed into the Jewish community.

In 2008, a more sophisticated analysis was published that made use of whole mitochondrial DNA sequences. They found no evidence for the genetic bottle necks that indicate founding mothers in the large Jewish populations.

Instead, they found a complicated picture with a very diverse gene pool suggesting intermarriage both with local populations and other Jewish groups.

The overall conclusion is that the female Jewish line deviates a lot more from the Palestinian heritage than the male line, but the heritage is still there.

So that’s the good news.

Jews and Palestinian Arabs are blood brothers – although this close genetic relationship probably stems from pre-Judaic times, rather than any more recent conversion of Palestinian Jews to Islam.

And the bad news?

This basic story has been known for the best part of a decade now. But, perhaps unsurprisingly, it hasn’t lead to the warring sides laying down their weapons and engaging in a group hug. This is a religious conflict, not a genetic one.

Mr Misinai is, sadly, on a hiding to nothing.

Note: All the people living in Greater Syria (Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan… and basically those living on the western side of the Euphrates River, including part of modern Turkey and Kurdistan) are one people that witnessed countless foreign invasions, religious diversification, intensive migrations to neighbouring countries,  but remained mostly autonomous and prosperous. Until the advent of the colonial powers that physically tried to split the land and invented imaginary borders.

During the long Byzantium Empire, most Christian sects considered Heretics and the Jews fled west of the Euphrates River to Persia Kingdom and to the Arabic Peninsula. After the Arabic invasion, many refugees returned to their homeland, either converted to Islam or not converted.

Are you telling me the US citizens are that shallow? Joe DiMaggio’s mother, Seinfeld, Bill Clinton….

In my previous post, Michael Tomasky wrote “Why the Palestinians will never win” (https://adonis49.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/will-the-palestinians-ever-win-not-even-a-mourakeb-seat-in-un/) something to the effect that:

1. To Americans, Jews are nice (all Jews?), successful people. They’re funny. Jerry Seinfeld. Who’s gonna be against Jerry Seinfeld’s people?

2. Roosevelt toyed with the idea of interning Italian-Americans in camps along with Japanese-Americans. You know why he dropped it? Because people around him told him that there is no way on Earth you can put Joe DiMaggio’s mother in a work camp…

3. Bill Clinton said, the only Palestinians he knows are college professors and doctors. In Clinton’s experience and in my more limited one, Palestinian Americans are a high-achieving and very warm people. But all most Americans know is, they’re a bunch of terrorists…

4. The Palestinian leadership appear to have no understanding of why the Palestinians are really losing. They’re losing because American public opinion will never be on their side. Americans will always back the Jews….” 

And I wondered: “Are the US citizens that shallow?

Have the USA built a vast empire, and is still the first superpower, relying on very shallow people?

There are many US very famous actors, world renown professionals… from Near-Eastern origin (Lebanon, Syria, Palestine).  And the latest research extracted from the census revealed that they are the most educated in the US, with the highest rate in professions, and owning single family homes… (Read link in note 1)

People say:

“It is all how you present it. Palestinians need to present it better…”

“Wining the heart of american public opinion is one of the battles that needs to be won by the Palestinians… ”

“Writers attempt to use this argument to stress on the importance of abandoning violent methods to fight apartheid and occupying Israel reveals his hypocritical attitude toward the reality on the ground… ”

“Israel uses violence all the time, is it damaging its image in the american public opinion? No because it portrays it as a matter of self-defense.”

“The late leader Arafat abandoned violence and he is still seen as a Terrorist. So the question is how to cover up all your violence not abandoning it!…”

And I keep wondering: How could the Palestinians and their leaders present a better picture or message? Should the Palestinians say:

“We are being killed everyday, but we like the Israeli occupiers?”

“Israel uprooted 500,000 olive trees in our lands since the year 2000, but we understand and forgive Israel: They believe that olive tree is our symbol for resistance?”

“Apartheid Israel is harassing us on the 300 checkpoints and many sick Palestinians are dying on the trip to any hospital, but that’s alright. Wish the American public opinion just empathize with our plights…”

“It takes 45 minutes to reach the Jordanian borders, but Israel checkpoints lengthen the duration to over 3 hours, but that’s okay… as long as the American public opinions release their opinions on Israel ill behaviors…”

Do you think that Ariel Sharon dismantled the Zionist colonies in Gaza in 2005 after US public opinion disproved of the settlements?

Do you think that Ehud Barak withdrew from south Lebanon in 2000 after US public opinion polls expressed their views that Israel extended its presence in Lebanon (18 years)?

Do you think that the 138 UN Sates that voted for an observer seat to the Palestinian people waited for a US poll on that matter?

Mind you that President Obama promised the Palestinians an observer seat if they withdraw their demand for a full State last year, and then reneged on his promise this year for an observer seat? Do you think that Obama was relying on any US poll on that subject?

Finally, on Nov. 30, 2012, the Palestinians got their seat in the UN as Observers, a preliminary step toward acknowledging a Statehood that was denied last year. More than two third of the UN general assembly 138 out of 197 States voted for the observer seat. 41 States, including England and Germany abstained. Nine voted against: Beside the US and Israel, seven Island-States under de facto US mandated power sided automatically with the US dictate…

Mind you that the Palestinians are already a member of the UNESCO.

With this status of observer, like the Vatican, the Palestinians can submit to the International Court Israel crimes against humanity. And Israel will have to answer to the UN any further incursions into the “Occupied territories” of the West bank and Gaza…

In 1947, the UN partitioned Palestine into two entities. Implicitly, the UN agreed on a Palestinian State in 1947, but only Israel was granted this status in 1948.

It has taken 65 years for the Palestinians to be part of the UN, after hundred of thousands of martyrs who fell under the apartheid and theocratic State of Israel, and are still suffering from all kinds of brutal and humiliating indignities every single day.

Last week, 170 Palestinians died following 1,500 jet attacks by Israel on Gaza, most of them babies and civilians, and over 1,500 injured. Israel knew that this time around, even the US cannot be of help, and it tried hard to downgrade the significance of this new Palestinian status, saying that nothing will change on the ground…

For example, resume building more colonies, keeping the 300 military checkpoints, continuing with drone attacks to assassinate Palestinians, uprooting olive trees, withholding Palestinian tax money…

And what do you think is required for the Palestinians to accede to a full-fledged independent State?

1. The establishment of a sovereign government

2. Having a defined and well delimited borders… Abbas claims that the 1967 borders are good enough.  The Palestinian opposition parties beg to differ… They want the UN partition borders of 1947…

Here's what's left of Palestine today. The green bits are now voted the state of Palestine.
Here’s what’s left of Palestine today. The green bits are now voted the state of Palestine.

3. Having authority over a permanent population… And what about the 500,000 Jewish settlers in the occupied lands?

4. Voting on a charter that the Palestinian State will adopt peaceful mechanisms when dealing with the apartheid State of Israel… And if Israel refuses peaceful negotiations?

5) And Jerusalem as Capital? For the two States?
 
 

It is a virus: You scratch one spot and it spreads; (Jan. 29, 2010)

It is a virus; a sort of mushroom that spreads over your skin and inflicts crazy itching.

You start scratching one spot and you end up lapidating your entire body.  It has affected me for over a month.

I finally saw a physician, not a skin specialist, in the town dispensary and she told me that she witnesses many such cases lately.

The virus is in the air and that is how you are contaminated; many victims experienced lousy moments for many weeks.

The physician prescribed a single pill (costing $8) with effects that last for a week. Got to take another pill for a second week; that should take care of the mushroom.

The physician said that without the pill the itching takes 6 weeks to subside.

In my case and with the pill I should be okay within days: I was healed the next day.

I decided for the second pill to make sure that the mushroom is dead once and for all.  I am not sure: three weeks later and I am itching; not necessarily of mushroom; but what do I know?

Itching is not the main topic of this article: it just gave me a perfect analogy.  The virus is Israel.

If you say Israel is an apartheid State because it subjugates the Palestinian people to a different law of the land than the one applied on the Jew,s then Israel is upset.

If you say Israel is a theocratic State because it extends citizenship to any Jew who sets foot in Israel then Israel is angry.

Why, all of the over 600 religious laws that govern daily life, as applied by the Pharisee during Jesus time, are still valid and harshly controlled.

The secular Jews agree that Israel is back to the Dark Age, but how to convince the US neo-conservative “Christians” that this is so?

If you say that Israel is comfortable with ghetto-like environment because it cordonned off all its frontiers by walls (frontiers that are not yet delimited in its Constitution) then Israel is appalled

If you say Israel is a Sparta State because it believes in military resolution for any contention with any neighboring State then Israel is incensed. Why?

Israel is worse than Sparta: after 3 years of forced military service the citizen has to submit to a month per year in “the reserves” service.

If you say Israel has been committing crimes against humanity since before its inception in 1948, and Gaza is the latest in evidence, then Israel rejects Goldstone’s report in all its sections.

If you say Israel has a peculiar kind of “democracy” that was called “apartheid democracy” in South Africa where laws are selectively and not equitably applied on all citizens; or if you say that the kind of democracy applied in Israel is barely a developed version of City-States democracies of Antiquity such as applied in Athens, Tyr, or Sidon then Israel feels obfuscated.

I you say Israel refuses to grow up and abide by its responsibility as a member of the United Nations and respect UN decisions then Israel is furious: Israel constantly expects the US to cover up illegal activities with the veto power.

If you say the Arab States want peace for returning all the conquered lands in 1967 as proclaimed in 2002 Arab Summit in Beirut then Israel feels resentful and laughs it off.

If you say that Israel is a racist State because the UN declared “Zionism a form of racism” then Israel is up in arms to drop this statement.  Can you believe it?

Israel is investing money to demonstrate that Indians living in the region of Malihabad, (near Lucknow in the Uttar Pradesh), and known as Pathans Afridis are Jews from the tribe of Ephraim that lived in northern Galilee during Jesus time.

The Indian Shahnaz Ali was hired by Israel Institute of Technology to test the DNA of this “tribe” and hopefully extrapolate the results to include the Pashtoun tribes on the borders of Pakistan and Afghanistan.  Is that a form of racism? Since when any religion was based on race?

I did a rough estimate: I figured out that the Phoenicians are over one billion, give or take one standard deviation, and are spread over the five continents!

If you say that Israel is “the vastest psychiatric ward in the world with no treating personnel” then Israel is ready to lambaste the Israeli author as a schizophrenic, leftist, and probably “anti-Semitic” mole.

If you say that Israel is indeed a very, very peace loving State then Israel is infuriated because you are mocking it.  It is a virus.

No matter what you say is non receivable.

Best attitude is to censure your opinions and refrain from mentioning Israel, Jews, Judaism, Hebrew, or the Diaspora.

One term is admissible: Jews were gazed by Nazism and the number better be exact: 6 millions no less and not one over that scientifically reached number.

Repeat: Jews were gazed and not shot, poisoned, killed, trampled, or exterminated in any other form of “final solutions”.

Repeat: Exactly 6 millions or the holocaust literature would have to be republished; any number over 6 millions and Germany would be infuriated and Merkel would have to cancel the seventh nuclear submarines, built for free for the State of Israel, at Germans’ tax payer expenses; and for what use are these nuclear submarines put in service?  Maybe to support NATO policies?

It is a virus: mushroom or no mushroom you feel itching like crazy and Barack Obama and George Mitchell first of all.

I demand freedom to pay tribute to my Idol

People are more inclined to be loyal to a saint, a shrine, or an honored Imam, or apostle.

People have need to use their senses to get connected to a spiritual entity: you cannot expect human to think exclusively on abstract notion without the intermediary of their senses of seeing a representative picture, of smelling incense, of touching a bust, or of listening to a hymn.

One God who created man and the universe is fine, but is not sufficient for man.  Several Gods doing the job is more convincing and pragmatic: specialization is highly valued.

Monotheism is a totally abstract concept that no human was yet able to feel physically loyal to a one, all encompassing God.

Ever since man descended from his tree, his prime concern was struggling for his freedom to pay tribute to his favorite Idol God.

Fear of the many dangers threatening his survival forced man to seeking a much more powerful ally to protect him and come to the rescue.  Depending on his wide spectrum of phobia, man wanted the total freedom to worship and be loyal to his “loyal” companions in times of imminent dangers.

Man would not take for granted Idols imposed upon him; he wanted his personal choices that most satisfied his psychological world.  Freedom of belief is not a modern concept; man fought all his life and for millennia for this natural right and is continuing the struggle.

I noticed lately that my dad, at each pass in front of the Virgin Mary or Mar Charbel (a Lebanese National Saint), has to touch these pictures in the house with his index, kiss his index, and then sign the cross.

Dad is 85 years old and has refrained attending mass for years.  Mother is also devoted to the Virgin and all the national female saints such as Rafqa; she never misses an occasion to get in the car or a bus going to pay tributes to shrines; she pay money, that she has not, for the Saint so that the church make “good” use of it.

Obviously, Mar Charbel is in her pantheon too, along with the newly beatified Hardini.  Interestingly, miracles have a way of occurring at election times.

In all ages, whether a religion claim to be monotheist or polytheist people end up selecting a particular idol to pay allegiance to and write ex-votos to Him in order to be cured, enjoy prosperity, safety to the family, and safe travels.

Indeed, people are loyal idolater to whom they perceive to be pretty much handy, accessible, and an excellent intermediary to the One God.

For example, in Latin America people are loyal to the Virgin Mary and cannot think of any other Saint to turn to in time of distress; thus, St. Mary of (name a city or a village), or the Virgin of (name a city or a town) and you have hundreds of Virgin Maries, tailored made to a specific locality, ready to come to the rescue.

The Greek Orthodox Church cannot think of more than three female saints to name girls at baptismal ceremonies: it must be either Mary, Ann, or Elisabeth; as for male kids you have an assortment of complicated and long Greek saints with plenty of X and Ch.

In predominantly Moslem Egypt, and generally in North Africa, you have St. Fatima, Aicha, Ali, Hussein, the Imam of the regional legal sect, or the shrine of the veneered Sheikh of a locality is paid more attention and visits to any other worshiping figures.

Pictures of Moslem saints are prohibited in public places or in mosques but that do not prevent homes to hang pictures of their preferred saint as relevant to current standards of beauty for both genders.

There is this myth that the Jewish religion is the first to adopting monotheism; it is just a myth. 

Ancient civilizations were never monotheists; they all had an overall God, nominally superior to the other demi-gods but that nobody paid much attention to or prayed to Him or even remembered asking his help in ex-votos.

God El was the all encompassing God in the Middle East as was Allah in the Arab Peninsula or Zeus for the Greeks, but He never generated a dime to tribes that had exclusive rights to his worship.

People converged to more palpable and understandable demy-gods; cities and towns adopted one of them as symbol and recognition of their trades or power.  In general, more weight was given to the “messengers of a God” (they were written in plural) than to a specific God.

Yahweh (God of thunder) was one of the Gods to the Jews after Moses introduced Him during the long crossing of Sinai and the worship of the “golden cow”: the Jews had, before and after Moses, many regional demy-Gods who did exist even if at periods they were forbidden to be worship.

Jews might have converged to a unique God in Judea in the second century BC.  Many of Canaan demy-Gods were far more beneficial and interesting than this newly created Yahweh that came into the picture during war periods. In war time, Jewish mercenaries were asked to support Baal under the banner of the dusted off Temple and bust of Yahweh.

Salomon worshiped Ashtarout (the Goddess of Sidon in Lebanon), and idol Baal had many Temples in Jerusalem while Yahweh had only one.

One common denominator to all salafist or extremist religious sects (Christian, Jewish, Moslems, or cults) is being totally peeved and obfuscated that the One True God is being sidetracked for substitutes.

Joshua offered the Jews choices of keeping Yahweh as sole God or accepting other demy-Gods.  When the Jews decided to keep exclusively a “tribal” God then Joshua ordered all strangers’ Gods destroyed. In ancient time, destroying the bust of a God didn’t mean that he no longer existed, but that the local God was to be more efficient to the survival of the tribe or community.

When Prophet Mohammad entered Mecca without a fight, after 9 years of taking Yathreb as his headquarter for his companions, he ordered all the 160 idols destroyed or effaced (pictures) save two: Allah and the Virgin Mary.

Mary was not bestowed virginity at all but she was veneered as the mother of the latest great prophet Jesus (Issa).  In Islam, idols were no longer Gods and never existed as was the case in ancient cultures.

The early Protestants erased pictures and destroyed busts of all Saints except crucified Jesus.  For the Protestants, erasing pictures of Saints didn’t mean that Saints didn’t exist but they were not that worthy to be worshiped and supplant God through the interceding process.

The most honest monotheists were the “heretic” Christian sects that the Orthodox Christian Church during the Byzantium Empire persecuted relentlessly.  Most of these sects would not even bestow a divine nature to Jesus, and Marie was not virgin by any means; no pictures or drawings were permitted for any Saints.

The farthest that these sects could indulge in is to veneer the apostle whom they claimed to have written the “true” Testament they adopted and read in.  The Nestorian sect proselytized in China and translated its Bible in Chinese in around the year 600; it built churches all along the “silk road”.  Thus, you don’t need to create saints along with pictures and busts to have the faith that travels to China.

I have noticed that:

1. centralized churches promote many saints with pictures and busts; it is a tactic to please the people so that it may enjoy total control over their temporal existence;

2. that these centralized churches inherited pagan religions aided a lot to the widespread propagation of multiple idols for each locality.

Decentralized religions have no urge to promote idols and pictures such as in Islam: it is the temporal power at every state that appoints clergies, Imams, and sheikhs.

I don’t see why all that fuss for monotheism.

If a few tribes still refuse to believe that it is earth rotating around the sun or that earth is flat, why then submerge them with an extra abstract notion?

Killing and committing suicide attacks in the name of a God is not an abstract act; this does not mean that human mind cannot reach a level of distortion that far surpasses the mere abstraction of a One God, creator of man and the universe.

Note 1:  This is a revised version of my post “Mono-idolatry (monolatry) or monotheism? (Nov. 6, 2009)

Note 2: The Christian Greek Orthodox is the church of Byzantium that persecuted the “heretic” Maronites in the year 1,000 and forced them to settle in the northern mountain chains of Lebanon. Decades later, the Maronite allied to the Church of Rome  and has been a steady ally to France since then.

These persecutions took place at a period the Moslem Arabic empire was disintegrating into small fiefdoms and Byzantium re-conquered the coastal portion in Turkey and Syria. The second crusade campaign burned Constantinople and occupied the lands of Byzantium in Turkey, Syria, all the way to Jerusalem.

Note 3: The various Protestant sects have similarity with the Wahhabi Moslem sect by discarding icons and pictures of saints in their place of worship.  The Wahhabi makes it a trend to demolish any worshiping place that is decorated with pictures, icon, and shrines, whether they are Christians or Moslems…
