Religion resurrects: It must die first

State Ideologies usurping religions: (June 18, 2009) 

            The 20th century was characteristic in serious attempts of replacing State religion by State Ideology.  This was feasible simply because most religions have developed into structured ideologies in concepts and in organization.  Soviet Russia was successful for over 70 years in that endeavor because it emulated communism into religious replica in all premises and criteria.  Soviet communism stated what happens after death, it described what is go and what is evil, it structured its hierarchy on the basis of church, excommunicated the “refusnik”, and it created a God, a semi abstract God with a personified representative on earth.  The Gang of Four in China, after the death of Mao Tse Tong, carried that religion a step forward: all ancient manuscripts of Chinese civilizations were meant to be burned.  The Khmer Rouge in Cambodia went several notches further: every educated person was to be burned; the new generation was to start with a blank brain.

            The trend of State ideologies usurping religions is going on even stronger with a reversed strategy.  State ideologies are basing their premises on a religion; they claim that the concepts of their ideology are consistent to the fundamentals of the original religion.  Those extremist State ideologies are found in all religions: Christian, Moslem, Jewish, Hindu, and Buddha-based religion.  State ideologies are in Afghanistan, Somalia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, India, China, Burma, and in the USA during the George W. Bush two Administrations.

           

            Religions, monolithic or not (it is primarily a mental distinction and never real), did not mushroom spontaneously in specific regions.  Religion is the same and was translated and interpreted into different languages and cultures. Religions were imported/exported along with the material baggage of trade and commerce; they were built upon and modified to correspond to customs and traditions. Religions developed to extreme abstractions in urban centers or reduced to basic common denominators in remote rural areas; they were the primary cultural communication among people based on trust, confidence, and belief that there is always someone more powerful and more knowledgeable than the lot.  

            It is because people need to create a God that religion was the main communicator among nations; religion transcended peculiar customs and traditions and reached straight to the deep fear and apprehension of man.  Fear of the unknown is shared by everyone and all men are similar in that one characteristic.

            There have always been all kinds of civilizations; that the archeologists failed to uncover relics and artifacts is irrelevant to that fact. Every civilization prospered on slavery; whatever names slaves were given.  Slaves had their own God; at day they shared the God of the usurpers of their freedom and by night they unveiled their “True God” and worshiped him genuinely as only desperate souls know how to pay tribute. A few slave “tribes” revolted and confirmed their nightly God at day break and paid retributions.  Most of these “slave tribes” succumbed to the power to be and its social structure (constructed around a religious hierarchy); a few preferred to be chased out and suffer another kind of life hardship.  No, there was no dignity in the daily life of the forsaken slaves who wandered in the wilderness; even their nights were different: they had to reinvent a God compatible to their wretched new life, an altered the God of the One they used to worship at night before the Diaspora.

            Nomadic tribes didn’t need religious clerics to convince them of a “God”: as they sat around by night they could watch the vault of the sky reaching down and they felt they could touch the stars.  There is overwhelming majesty during the peaceful nights in desert like regions, a sky sparkling with millions of beautiful stars twinkling overhead (a few moving, many fixed) that offered reprieve, courage, and hope for another day of desolation, loneliness, and harsh nature.  Nomads appreciate the varieties of Silence: they can feel the God of Silence before major cataclysms and desert storms.

            It is because nomads needed to believe more in a God than other settled people to ward off the persistent and real fears of the days for survival that their God was more powerful and more compassionate than other Gods; the God of the nomads was personified in the one seeking refuge for the night; the visitor was lavished with the respect due to the wandering God paying visit to the tribe members and he was fed with whatever meager substances the clan had saved.  The God of the nomads knew their traditions and customs and refrained from interfering or crossing the lines; otherwise, the visitor was punished for false representation.

           

            There are various God. There is the God of the nomads, the “Night God” of the enslaved, the God of the urban and settled people, and the God of wandering homeless people, rootless, and abandoned because their God refuses to be set free.  My article concerns the God of the stragglers.  This God was created a brute, ruthless, and blood thirsty; an avenger out of ignorance, an insulated, merciless, and uncompromising hatemongering God.  This is the God of Thunder, War, Lightening, Storm, Sword, and Skull.  This is the God who rebuffs any tender offer to mingle with other civilized Gods, to soften His manner, to come to maturity, to associate, to adjust, and to keep pledges.

            This is the God who obeyed his creators; as He started to appreciate modern and civilized habits He was reminded by his creators, called prophets, that He lost his way and the reason why He was created.  This the God who was resurrected countless time from his compassionate leaning and collaboration with other worthy Gods to lead newer generations, whose hearts and minds were burned alive from birth, to take on a chimerical revenge on real people because chimerical stories and myths are truer than reality.

            The Jewish religion is dead.  It was replaced by a State ideology called Zionism. Jehovah (Yahweh) was again called upon to mete out his benediction to countless genocide against the Palestinians, Lebanese, Syrians, Jordanians, and Egyptians. The ancient “prophets” were rejuvenated into modern-day prophets, very much as archaic as Ben Gurion, Menahem Begin, Ishak Shamir, Sharon, Ehud Barak, and all the lot who want their “promised land” that they usurped by the sword, lies, and blasphemy. 

              The Jewish religion is dead as Israel was recognized in 1948.  It is not what the Books say; it is how it is practiced.  It is how Zionism behaved in Gaza, Sabra and Chatila Palestinian camps, the camps in Jenine, Jabalya, the massacres in the villages of Dar Yassine, Kfar Kassem, Yafa, the shelling of the town of Qana, of the UN compounds in Qana, Gaza, and the West Bank, the execution of over 6,000 Egyptian soldiers prisoners in the war of 1967; the destruction of Lebanon’s infrastructure 8 times, the destruction of the infrastructures in Gaza and the West Bank, the demolition of schools and hospitals, the routine assassinations of leaders, the apartheid Wall of Shame, the refusal of abiding by UN resolution 194 for the return of the Palestinian refugees, the insistence of refusing to share Jerusalem Capital to the Palestine State, the transfer methods of the Christians from Jerusalem, and claiming that Israel should be accepted as State for Jews before any peaceful negotiation.

            The Jewish religion is dead.  It was replaced by a State ideology called Zionism, founded by the Eastern Europe Ashkenazi.

 

Note: The UN described Zionism in mild terms as “a form of racism”.  As the USA pressured the UN to desist of this mild description then Zionist ideology was no longer restricted to Jews; it transformed to an umbrella for the fascist, Nazi, Stalinists, Gang of Four, Khmer Rouge, Neo-Conservative, apartheid, and isolationist ideologies; it had contacts with Taliban, Ben Laden, Qaeda, and a variety of religious extremists of Moslems, Hindus, and the Christians of the Sirilanka Tamul terrorists.

May  2009 Bi-Weekly Report (#22) on the Middle East and Lebanon

 The US Administration and France of Sarkozi vetoed a resolution condemning Israel’s genocide in Gaza.  Obama and Sarkozy consider that genocide practices are good for the stability and progress of the world. 

I understand that Sarkozy is in a difficult position in France and must rely on the flimsy support of the Zionist lobby in France on ground that somehow he is Jewish by a convoluted way. 

It is getting clear that Sarkozi is a Zionist who believes that Jewishness is an ethnic entity, a sort of a race and not a religion.  If that is the case, then why Sarkozi is still President of a nation who claims to separate religion from state’s functions?  

Why Sarkozi does not relocate to Hungry, the origin state of his parents?  Why does not Sarkozi transfer to Israel proper and live in a colony, a land usurped from the Palestinian people? President Sarkozy excuses the atrocities of the Israeli State and refuses a whole nation such as Turkey to adhere to the European Union on grounds that it did not fully satisfy human rights conditions expected by the civilized world of the EU.

Maybe if Sarkozi ponder a little on his genealogy then he might discover that his grand parents were Janissaries (Inkisharieh) in the Ottoman Empire army.

President Barack Obama doesn’t get it. 

The world community has also elected him to apply the promises during his electoral campaigns or what people wished he meant for a stable and peaceful world. 

Barack Obama doesn’t get it; his Administration is sidetracking him into redundant and Non effective messages and actions.  Obama should know that hate crimes, genocides, “collateral” civilian damages, apartheid behavior and covert racism are not behaviors to be swept under carpets and hope that they will be taken care of by time.

Barack Obama doesn’t get it that Zionists are not to be cajoled and given more time to sober up and start acting as democratic and the rational nations wish they do. 

Zionists will not abide by the United Nations guidelines and resolutions through diplomatic gimmicks; no resolute actions are not about to convince them to change their racist and apartheid behaviors.  

How about President Obama orders Hillary Clinton to condemn Israel barbaric actions once in the UN? 

The world community is waiting haplessly for a sign of real change of position by using the UN as the international body that send the right and proper message for civilized codes of behavior.

So far Barack Obama has been a big mouth with no teeth to make Zionists comprehend that he meant to establish a Palestinian State; to free the Palestinian people in the ghetto of Gaza from misery, famine, and lost opportunities to join the civilized nations.

Barack Obama has been a big mouth with No teeth to actually liberate Syria from this economic embargo that is hurting the civilians and on this humiliating apartheid black list of nations, as if the Syrians are any worse than the Israelis who have been continuously demonstrating that they are the real terrorists in masterminding the most abject activities around the world.

Time is running out on Obama to prove that he is a President of real change that the world would be proud to accept as their leader for change.  If you cannot send a strong message to even the Zionist lobbies in the USA then how will you navigate world problems that require global resolutions?

Barack Obama is to meet Israel Netanyahu.  I would be highly disappointed if Obama cows for just one second.  Iran is not the problem.  It is this ideological apartheid virus applied in a tiny State and constantly cajoled and condoned by the western societies that can spread havoc. 

The Pakistani army is supposedly making a breakthrough by killing one thousand Taliban fighters in the Suwat region.  Nothing has changed; war generates war and Obama is going to deal with another quagmire for the rest of his tenure. 

Leaders always have good intentions of compensating economically ravaged regions that they contributed in setting aflame.  It is not by war that good intentions are attained.  Millions of civilians have vacated the area into refugee tents and many thousands are simmering with feelings of revenge. 

There are no people worse than others: there are people who could not enjoy institutional opportunities to diversify their perspectives.

Another war is reaching an end: the Tamil forces in Sri Lanka are giving up the fight.  Thousands of civilians are in refugee camps.  The Tamil Party is a nasty separatist and apartheid “Christian” movement that learned terrorist tactics from the masters in Israel and in former apartheid South Africa State. 

It is hoped that the western powers let the Columbus government deal equitably with the aftermath and not add fuel to an ignited situation.  The State of Sri Lanka is going to need huge infusion of economical and financial aids if the consequences of a civil war are to heal peacefully. (China filled the economic void, at a long-term price)

Friday, Hassan Nasrallah of Hezbollah delivered a powerful speech during the presentation of university diplomas. He said that the private communication system of Hezbollah is the most important tool that the resistance had to defeat Israel.

But the Lebanese government had decided on May 5, 2008 to rob the resistance of her potent power.  The leaders of the government of Seniora PM, Saad Hariri, Walid Jumblatt, and Samir Geagea coordinated well the project with Israel and the USA.

Thousands of Lebanese were lured from the districts of Akkar and the Bekka to Beirut and wait in safe places packed with arms and ammunitions.   Jumblatt had previously publicly proclaimed these facts and Nasr Allah confirmed it.

Nasr Allah divulged that the government plan was to initiate a temporary civil war in Beirut and then ask the world community for peace keeping forces in Beirut.

Those citizens financially lured by the government to come to Beirut were not told the purpose of their summons and when they realized that they are to fight Hezbollah then they withdrew at the first attack.  The Lebanese consider the Hezbollah resistance as the pride of Lebanon for defeating Israel after 33 days of barbaric invasion in 2006.

Saad Hariri had vouched that the Mustaqbal movement will never forget May 7, 2008 as the sky is blue.  Nasr Allah replied that May 7 was meant for any government never to forget the consequences if it recklessly repeats foolish decisions without Hezbollah consent.

 General Michel Aoun of the Tayyar urged his supporters not to be sidetracked by those Christian candidates claiming to be neutral or supporting the President of the Republic.  The objective is to win as many parliamentary seats as is needed to activate change and reform.

Note: Israel is conducting on May 31 the largest military maneuvers in its 61 years on Lebanon’s borders and the government thinks that it does not concern Lebanon

Bi-Weekly Report (#21) on the Middle East and Lebanon (May 9, 2009)

 

            The US Administration keeps flopping between the policy of a peace treaty (Israel/ Syria) first or a Palestinian homeland in the Near East.  So far, the US Administration has changed priority more than once in a single month and the US delegates are crusing the regions for a hint and a suggestion while carrying all kinds of tentative projects.  The energumen Israeli foreign affairs minister, investigated for criminal activities by the Israeli police, is visiting a few European States to confirm his opposition for a Palestinian State.  Thus, the US is pleasuring Israel by shifting its priority to (Israel/Syria) peace treaty first.

            Anyone of these projects to take off there are powerful regional powers to satisfy.  For Syria there are Iran and Turkey that should cooperate fully and sign their agreements.  Iran would pressure the US first, to handle the nuclear arm policy equitably since Israel owns one too many nuclear arms; and second, that the treaty preserves unconditionally the sovereignity of Syria in the Golan Heights. This is no longer a State to State treaty but a regional status of dignity that no usurper is to enjoy advantages by military forces.

  1. Turkey would insists that France drops her veto to a potential attachement of Turkey to the European Union; otherwise, why Turkey would go at such length and effort to get re-immersed in regional quagmires?   The other condition of Turkey is that Moslem Syria is not pressured into “losing face” and thus, exacerbates the sense of humiliation and desperation that the Arab World has been subjugated to for centuries.

 

            One policy that the US Adminstration has decided on and is executing with the support of the Pakistany army and government is to defeating the military power of the Taliban style ideology in norther Pakistan.  Pakistan is the main source of instability in order to re-arrange the Greater Middle East stability.  I hope that the Barak Administration has already extended its military policy in Pakistan into including the social and economic stability and viability of the Pakistani State.  Pakistan is worth heavy investment in money and time until the Taliban (Wahhabit) ideology is contained and controlled.

 

            For the Palestinian homestate to take off there are Egypt and Saudi Arabia to be satisfied, assuming that Syria has signed a peace treaty with Israel.  Egypt would insist that first, its enjoys the status of the most preferred nation in Gaza, kind of practical mandate if not diplomatically; and second, that Israel relinquishes any kinds of controls in the Palestinian State that Egypt might be denied, and third, (during the Mubarak dictatorship) that Hamas is not to be the most powerful faction in the Palestinian government and Parliament: Mubarak understands that the “Moslem Brotherhood” party in Egypt has more legitimacy among the population than his regime.

            Saudi Arabia would insists that the clerics to the Mosques that it invested in building or maintaining in Palestine be hired by the wahhabit sect and answering directly to the “fatwas” emanating from the Capital Riad.

 

            The President of Lebanon, Michel Suleiman, has declared yesterday that after the Parliamentary election in June 7 the Dawha agreement will have been satistisfied and the Taef Constitution will be applied: The winning coalition in the parliament will govern and the losers will oppose.  The leader of the Tayyar al Horr (Change and Reform Party), and currently the dominant “Christian” representative in the parliament, General Michel Aoun has been promoting the advent of the Third Republic to replace the governing system imposed on Lebanon since 1993 during the Syrian mandate and after the withdrawal of the Syrian troops in 2005.  The polls favor the opposition (Tayyar, Hezbolah, and Amal) to gaining 65 deputies out of 120. 

Michel Aoun has decided to run in the district of Jezzine (a Christian enclave) with his list of 3 candidates when all the attempts for an agreement with Berri failed.  Berri is the Chairman of the Parliament and the leader of the Shiaa Amal Party that represented the Shiaa during the civil war but was supplanted by Hezbollah.  Berri understands that his weight and standing in the political structure are solely based on heading the parliament and all his machinations are to securing this post that he chaired for over 20 years.

Regardless of the wining coalition, the Taef Agreement will be re-applied in its entirety with various success and time span. For example, a second confessional Partiament of the 19 religious sects will be formed so that the popular Parliament will be elected devoid of sectarianism and hopefully according to a new law based on relative percentages (nisbiyya) and not on majority.

If the Tayyar returns with additional gains into the Parliament then the application of Taef Constitution will accelerate with modification after substantial lapse of time such as providing the President of Republic additional leverage and imposing time constraint on the government (mainly the Prime Minister) to ratifying decision as it is imposed of the President.

In case the Tayyar loses then a dangerous cycle await Lebanon with end results of sharing power not on the basis of 50/50 between the Moslem sects and the Christian sects but on the basis of three major sects, the Shiaa (the most populous), the Sunni, and a combination of the Maronite and Christian Orthodox. 

  1. Lebanon is a precarious State depending on many foreign interests in the Middle East and not specifically for the sake of Lebanon.   In any case, a stable Lebanon is connected with a stable Syria that is satisfied with Lebanon’s foreign administration of relations. The fundamental interests of Syria cannot be circumvented and supersede the USA if Lebanon is to enjoy security and stability.

Sociology and cruelty: a sub-field of climatology?  (December 10, 2008)

Any student in sociology who is not expert in climatology and topology or the land of people he is learning about is out of the subject matter.

Sociology, psychology, social organization and most human sciences are fundamentally sub-fields of climatology and topology.

Just figure people living in an arid desert; people living in Antarctica or the Arctic regions; people living in the equator where it rains 24 hours and every day of the year.

Just figure people living in regions where it is dark most of the year; people living in mostly sunny areas.

Just figure people having access to the stars at night and people not seeing but clouds.

Just imagine people shoveling snow most of the year and living among dirty and frozen snow; or people shoveling sands most of the years of an advancing desert.

Visualize people living on rivers; people living in valleys, and people living on mountain tops…

Do you think that they have many common psychological characteristics or that their social organizations are compatible?

Do you believe that the recent habit of the few 5% of world population, living in semi-cozy homes that shelter us from climatic rigor, has transformed our psychic of total dependence on climatic changes?

Billions of people living below the survival level have no shelters; billions are living in makeshift shelters.

Why do you think that if a few millions managed to build adequate shelters that mankind has conquered the weather, the sky, the sand, the snow, the rivers, the oceans, and the land?

Author Amelie Nothomb had stated hilarious facts of history that we tend to forget:

The civilization of the west needs to pinpoint an enemy to wage war against, for the sake of engaging in wars, camouflaged in ridiculous reasons.  The civilization of the East welcomes wars anytime, for the sake of fighting duels among equals in values, to the very end.  Cruelty of the western armies never reached the ankle of their Asian counterparts.”

For example, even after a ridiculous armistice is signed between the western and eastern armies, the psychological warfare in the east resumes until the adversary is totally exhausted and annihilated.

George W. Bush (Junior) was half lucky for selecting Iraq as the battlefield. The half part in the unluckiness was selecting a country bordering Iran and targeting Iran at the same time. 

At every period Iran was upset with the US politics, the US army in Iraq experienced acute pain, suffering, and disillusion in wining the war.

The more the western troops approach toward China the more the level of cruelty increases!

The western troops in Afghanistan are already loosing ground; the Taliban is controlling 70% of the land.  If the west tries to control Pakistan then higher levels of pain, suffering, and cruelty is awaiting its troops.

Note: It would be interesting to analyze the types of cruel behaviors inflicted on “enemies”.

For example, how the US annihilated the Indians, how the Spanish “Catholic civilization” annihilated the Indians in south America, how the Moguls ransacked countries they invaded, the atrocities of Japan in China and the countries it occupied, the mutilations exercised by European colonizers in Africa, the Congo, Western Africa, how the German and Dutch treated the occupied people

History will testify that the Zionist State of Israel tops all cultures in barbarity, humiliation, and cold cruelty. Israel synthesized cruelty tactics and methods and applied every single one of them, at the face of world community, without condemnations or retributions.
