Communities life cycle: How to mind our social fabrics in the Near East?

There are people in Iraq, in Syria, in Lebanon, people in Jordan, in Palestine, and people in Cyprus.

All these people share a long history of common customs and traditions, and live in a geographic area that was opened to interactions and daily trades throughout thousands upon thousands of years, the bedrock of human development

These people have shared the same plights, infamies and indignities of foreign invasions from warrior-like ancient civilizations such as Turks, Persians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, French, British, and lately the Ashkenazy Zionist State of Israel…

Throughout history, anytime one of these people were invaded, the remaining communities fell to the occupiers within a couple of years and their communities were transplanted to the invading country in order to develop regions living in prehistoric state of development…

The topography in the Near-East regions does not exhibit any “natural boundaries” among the currently created “independent States” by France and England.

The major rivers of Euphrates, Tiger, Orontes…have been resources to link the hundreds of City-States built along their river shores…Only the invading armies settled their differences along the major rivers as demarcation lines. For example, Roman Empire and Persian empires, Ottoman Empire and Persian empires…

You might say that I forgot the Arabic/Islamic empire.

We are the Arabs. Regardless of the origins of the tribes, whether from Yemen, Hadramout, Hijaz, Jazira, Najd, southern Iraq…, they were living in the Near-East for centuries before the message of Islam spread all over the old world…

Islam is originally a pragmatic religion that was meant to constitute the common denominator religion of most of the religious sects of the tribes in the Near-East, including Christian sects and those labelled by Byzantium as heretic christian sects… How Islam degenerated is another story that I confronted in many articles

The people in the Near-East, also called the Levant region by the French mandated power, share a cycle of life, and varied resources, a land of bounty and water and fertile lands, and mountain chains, and deep valleys, and deserts…

A vast land opened to easy and fast transportation system that can link the various communities…if the political will is established to facilitate the communication and daily trades among the communities…

Any State in the Near-East that put forth political and economic policies meant to obstruct communication and trades among the States should be criticized for promoting dangerous programs that will hinder the life-cycle among the communities…

Any State in the Near-East that creates a situation of local war for borders delineation should be criticized of instituting smokescreen obstacles meant to disseminate internal isolationist policies at the expense of the long-term welfare and progress of all the communities…

Any State in the Near-East that foment sectarian rivalries and abridge the rights of any community should be confronted as promoting divisive policies…

Our region is in the execution stage of dividing it into sectarian regions and prohibiting the natural flow of man, products, resources, and development…

I read recently that the US and Israel have coaxed 5,000 Iraqi scientists into immigrating to the US and England. Over 1,000 scientists opted to stay in Iraq and were assassinated by the US and Zionist secret agents. Why?

No State in the Near-East is supposed to be self-sufficient in scientific minds and talents…

The case of Syria is the last link in the chain to dismantle this strategic region


Near East: Levant Union States?

Levant (Rising sun with respect to Europe) is the name given by the French mandated power to the Near East independent States of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine.

The current total population of the Levant is about 30 millions, or less than half each of Turkey, Iran, or the third of Egypt and about the number in Iraq, and the Arabian Peninsula (all bordering the Levant region).

Thus, focusing on internal trades among the Near East States will not make a serious dent toward expanding economic development in the short-term, but that is the best economic strategy for establishing a complementary economy that satisfy internal needs.

At least 70% of the land of this union is mostly desert and its total area is barely the third of France, but it is relatively rich in water compared to the neighboring larger States with the exception of Turkey.

The advantages of a policy of opening up the borders among these States for trades and easy communication are enormous.

For one thing, an economic coordination of the Levantine States can negotiate better deals with the bordering larger States by constituting a larger common market that may ease up the frequent tensions and anxiety that the people have been experiencing for so many centuries.

A few guidelines may go a long way toward a project of common market.

First, it is inevitable that all borders among the Near East States be definitely demarcated, resolved, and registered in the United Nation.  This first step will eliminate foreign interventions in our internal affairs and appease unfounded fears of forced or implicit annexation.

Second, The Levant Union States (LUS) should drop all territorial claims with the neighboring States (except with Israel) that do not agree with the UN drawings.

Third, the LUS needs to institute a restricted Parliament that deal with the most urgent laws applicable to the union.  The prime areas for legislations are: Water resources, agriculture and industrial production coordination,  financial coordination, infrastructure, education, military, and energy resources.

Fourth, the establishment of a unified internal currency for internal trades among the States and leaving the States independent national currencies for external trades.  Thus, the central banks in each State will set aside reserves for the internal united currency to cover up any internal difficulties for conversion into particular “national” currencies as the internal market expand.

Fifth:  The institution of a central bank for managing and administering the internal currency to satisfying the growing internal trade.

Sixth, establishment of standards for armed forces and internal forces in the eventual coordination for securing the borders of the LUS.

Seventh, establishment of standards for public schooling systems in order to facilitating transfers of students among the States. It is essential that uniformed textbooks in geography of the region, its common history, and the various civic educational systems be introduced to all citizens.

Eight, establishing “Free trade zones” with neighboring States.  For example, one in Iskandaron (Alexandretta) between Turkey and Syria on the coast, one at the junction among Turkey, Iraq, and Syria (in the Kurdish populated zone), one between Syria and Iraq in the desert region on the Euphrates River, one among Jordan, Syria and Iraq, one in Gaza between Egypt and Palestine, and one in Aqaba between Jordan and Saudi-Arabia.

Nine:  Having coordinated foreign political positions with respect to the UN assembly.

Tenth, setting up a high political command in charge of negotiating any peace treaty with Israel as a Union of common interests.  The piece meal negotiation process with this antiquated vassal mentalities is not going to insure any lasting peace.
