The Western roots of “Middle-Eastern” terrorism

The Western roots of “Middle-Eastern” terrorism

Convinced that terrorism, in all its forms and manifestations, committed by whomever, wherever and for whatever purposes, is unacceptable and unjustifiable, member States of the United Nations were finally able to adopt, on September 8, 2006, a common approach within the framework of the “United Nations global counter-terrorism strategy ». But, ten years later, the “international community” has yet to agree on a consensus definition of the common enemy, which continues to grow and expand, thus inflicting devastation and untold misery, mainly to the States and the peoples of the Arab and Muslim world.

However, in a bitter irony, and in total defiance of established historical truths, these very victims and their majority religion -Islam- are accused by some of the crime of sponsoring transnational terrorism, hence jeopardizing international peace and security.

But who is really to be held liable for the birth and expansion of the phenomenon of violence in modern times, against the consequences of which a number of visionary thinkers like Malek Bennabi and Eric E. Hobsbawm had yet forewarned the world a century ago already?

The opinions exposed in this paper on this burning topic aren’t expressed by Muslim officials or thinkers. They are those of Westerners, at different levels of authority and moral and political responsibility, representing the obverse and the reverse of the terrorism medal, and pointing out the historical responsibility of some Western governments They are representative of a “politically incorrect” voice whose echo is barely audible in the middle of the media tumult skillfully orchestrated by the new “self-righteous”.

Terrorism, Islam and treason of the clerks

Recently, magistrate Vincent Sizaire, author of the book titled “L’Imposture sécuritaire”, explained[2]that the characterization of terrorism is more about political calculation than legal hermeneutics, since it is necessarily the result of a process of balance of power and political assessment, at the end of which the powers to be tend to apply it in a more or less discretionary manner to a particular criminal rather than another. Sizaire highlights how it is problematic, today, to use the same term to refer to activities undertaken by fanatical and obscurantist groups, and to actions of political opponents of authoritarian regimes.

Therefore, there can obviously be no question for the need to put forward a new definition of this concept, one less equivocal. Indeed, it should be pointed out that, to date, no one definition of terrorism has gained universal acceptance. Alex Schmid and Albert Jongman identify 109 different definitions[3]. The United Nations still can’t find an agreed upon definition among its member States since December 17, 1996, date of adoption by the General Assembly of resolution 51/210, by which it was decided to create a special Committee to develop a comprehensive convention on international terrorism. It’s so controversial a debate that, according to Oliver Libaw, even in the United States -where the “Global War on Terror” was launched in 2001- “it turns out that no one is all that sure just what ‘terrorism’ is”[4].

Thus, the future still looks bright for the famous and often-cited claim that “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter”[5]. Never mind! For one school of thought in the West, terrorism, barbarity and intolerance are consubstantial to Islam as a religion. Consequently, in the face of the “crazy Muslim zealots” who “see progress as an evil, tolerance as a weakness and pacifism as a sin”, and “call for murder and destruction”, resistance and relentless struggle are to be opposed within a “long Fourth World War”[6], akin to those waged by the “Free World” against fascism and nazism during the First and Second World Wars, and against communism during the third world war, presumably completed with the end of the cold war in 1989.

Nothing seems to shake the certainties of the proponents of this “dominant thought” often described as neoconservative, mainly conveyed by Western and Israeli think tanks, and relayed by their powerful mainstream media. And it would be pointless to remind them, for instance, that in the absence of a comprehensive international convention on terrorism-a result of the lack of a consensus definition that should be distinguished from the legitimate struggle of peoples for self-determination and which should include “State terrorism”- Arab and Muslim States have developed their own legal instruments within their regional groups; that in the 1990s, a country like Algeria fought alone against terrorism -before a suspicious international silence- that cost her more than 200,000 deaths and economic losses estimated at more than $ 30 billion; that 95% of lives lost to “terrorist barbarity” are to be found among Muslims[7]; that the highest official authorities of Islam have condemned without appeal both the ideology and actions of terrorist groups; and that the overwhelming majority of Muslim populations reject terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, as confirmed by statistics provided by Western survey institutes and agencies themselves.

In his time, Julien Benda denounced the “betrayal of the clerks”. More recently, Pascal Boniface pin the “intellectual counterfeiters” who bear a heavy responsibility in “the place occupied by lies in the public debate”. He targets in particular those who tend to equate Islam and terrorism by referring to “fascislamism” and contribute to nurture a neoconservative approach that thrives in the West since the 9/11 attacks.

We have already addressed this issue of Islam as a mobilizing and unifying scarecrow in the West[8]. We have reported “a dangerous semantic shift that we constantly observe since the fall of the Berlin Wall: from ‘counter-terrorism’ actions, we jumped to war against ‘Islamic terrorism’, and then to the fight against ‘Islamic extremism’ “. And we have, inevitably, raised the following question: “Are we soon going to abandon superfluous adjectives and hypocritical euphemisms to openly claim the war against Islam itself ?”. Since then, time and events seem to have proved us right…

Responsibility of the West regarding transnational terrorism

Some people believe that radical Islamism and jihadism are not an exclusive “creation” of the West. To think otherwise, they argue, would be to overestimate the Western influence in areas where many other local and international factors have contributed to their development over a long period of time. That is certainly right, and so is the fact that certain misguided policies pursued by Western powers, particularly by Anglo-Saxon countries, have greatly contributed to the emergence and expansion of these phenomena, especially since the iconic events of 9/11 and their disastrous ‘by-products’: the Afghan and Iraqi military expeditions.

Britain’s role

This view is shared by Mark Curtis, who documented in a book[9] the collusion of the United Kingdom with Islamism since the last century. Based on reliable documentation and government archives, he dissects an aspect of British foreign policy, which has remained curiously ignored or deliberately obscured by the mainstream media. This collusion, he says, has “a long history which has contributed not only to the rise of radical Islam itself, but also to that of international terrorism, which the new strategy of national security of the UK Government has designated as the biggest threat to the country”, and that the highest ranking officer of the British army has identified as “the fight of our generation, maybe our Thirty Years’ War”.

Curtis says that the share of responsibility of London in the emergence of the terrorist threat goes well beyond the impact its wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have had on a few individuals. The most important fact in this story is, according to him, that the successive labour and conservative governments have, for decades, connived with radical Islamic forces, including terrorist organizations. They have, sometimes, trained and financed them in order to promote specific foreign policy objectives, with a view to desperately preserving what was left of British power and influence internationally, mainly in areas considered as sensitive but where it was no longer possible to impose their will and interests unilaterally or by relying on other local allies.

The role of the United States of America

In his book[10] published in 2005, Robert Dreyfuss meticulously documents the American role in this “Devil’s Game”. Drawing on archival research and interviews with policymakers and officials of the CIA, the Pentagon and the State Department, he analyzes the consequences of “sixty years of misguided efforts” on the part of the United States in order to dominate the economically and strategically vital Middle East region. Dreyfuss argues that America’s historic alliance with the Islamic right is greatly to blame for the emergence of Islamist terrorism. He concludes by stating that “far from promoting democracy and security”, this policy, which continues to this day, “ensures a future of blunders and blowback”.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., nephew of the late U.S. President J.F. Kennedy, also considered the long history of the violent interventions of his country in the region. He explains in a long article[11] in “Politico” magazine why we should look beyond convenient explanations of religion and ideology and examine instead the more complex rationales of history and oil “and how they often point the finger of blame back at our own shores”. He also describes how “over the past seven decades, the Dulles brothers, the Cheney gang, the neocons and their ilk have hijacked that fundamental principle of American idealism and deployed our military and intelligence apparatus to serve the mercantile interests of large corporations and particularly, the petroleum companies and military contractors that have literally made a killing from these conflicts”.

Moreover, a Foreign Policy Journal article[12] tells us that the White House had made the decision to support the armed radical Jihadists in Syria (that would later emerge as ISIL and Jabhat Al-Nusra) despite the warnings of the intelligence agencies, which provided for the advent of the Islamic State. This amazing information was confirmed by former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Lieutenant General Michael Flynn –after he resigned from his post in April 2014, much to everyone’s surprise- who was previously the Director of information for the Center of command of special operations and, in that capacity, had the main mission to hunt down Usama Bin Laden and dismantle Al-Qaeda.

It is worth noting that this piece of information and other related revelations have been reported in a documentary film[13] broadcast by ARTE-TV channel, which explains “how, from Bush to Obama, America has left prosper the blind terror that Daesh took over”. In this film, former members of the intelligence community, representatives of U.S. forces in Iraq, former Secretary of State Colin Powell and terrorism experts trace, with supporting evidence and archives, the thirteen years of “the lost war on terror”.

Last but not least, during the 2016 presidential campaign, the GOP nominee, Donald Trump, said[14]that he meant exactly what he had declared previously in Florida, when he called President Barack Obama the “founder of ISIS”. And when the conservative radio show host, Hugh Hewitt, tried to clarify Trump’s position by saying he understood him to mean “that he (Obama) created the vacuum, he lost the peace”, D. Trump objected, declaring “No, I meant he’s the founder of ISIS. I do. He was the most valuable player. I give him the most valuable player award. I give her, too, by the way, Hillary Clinton”.

France’s role

In his latest book[15], French philosopher Michel Onfray states that “terrorist Islam” was partially created by the bellicose West. Denouncing what he calls “contemporary colonial wars” conducted by some Western countries including France, he argues that Islamic regimes only started to threaten the West once, and only once the latter had indeed threatened them by brutal force.

For his part, Pierre Conesa, former senior official in the Ministry of defense, said[16] that his country “is paying a high price for a war that is not its own”. In this regard, he cites the example of the intervention in Libya where France has “done on its own account what Bush did in Iraq, which is destroying a regime and leaving behind chaos it has no ability to manage”.

In Syria, especially during the period when Laurent Fabius was the head of the Quai d’Orsay, this dubious interventionist policy resulted in total support to the rebels fighting against Al-Assad regime. Believing that the departure of the latter “is only a matter of weeks”, Fabius said in August 2012 “Bashar Al-Assad would not deserve to be on Earth”. And in December of the same year, reacting to Washington’s decision to place Jabhat Al-Nusra on its list of terrorist organizations, he declared: “All Arabs were fiercely against” the American position “because, on the ground, they (the elements of Al-Nusra) do a good job”[17].

In conclusion, we would like to invite the public to ponder the wisdom of a thinker who once said that in the past weapons were manufactured to wage wars, but today wars are manufactured to sell weapons.

Yet unfortunately, it has to be recognized that the rhetoric on the “clash of civilizations”, constantly and tirelessly repeated by some since the end of the cold war and the subsequent disappearance of the “indispensable enemy”, seems to have achieved the objective assigned to it, chiefly by those who benefit from and pull the strings of the perpetuation of conflicts all over the world. This rhetoric has thus produced a dangerous “clash of fundamentalisms’, which is updating the notions of “revenge of God”, “Crusades” and “Jihad”, and adding new ones such as “islamofascism”. The consequence of this dramatic turn of events is illustrated, on the sought and obtained ground of confrontation, by a “clash of barbarities”.

In today’s increasing international turmoil, nobody should be blind to the fact that the biggest danger associated with this change is that since the end of the second world war, the world has entered the age of the “supreme weapon” –the atomic bomb- and other weapons of mass destruction, and that extremists on all sides are promising and fervently promoting a “Cosmic War” for “the triumph of Good over Evil”. For some of them, it is a religious war, the ultimate war prior to the Apocalypse or the end of the world, whose theatre of operations one party sets in “Armageddon” and the other in “Dabiq”, both places situated in the Levant, comprising Syria which is being today put to fire and sword…

Isn’t it insane to believe that our civilized world is unable to find a path other than the one leading toward Mutually Agreed Destruction?

After Aleppo: the State of Syria

Source

The Syrian Arab Army now controls Aleppo, which means that the Syrian government once more is in charge of the main population centres in the country. Opposition armed forces are hemmed in around Damascus and in Idlib, while the Islamic State (IS) still holds the northern city of Raqqa. These forces, including IS, are on the back foot, disorganised, weakened logistically and disoriented. Largely abandoned by their benefactors — the West, the Gulf Arabs and Turkey — these fighters have either moved to great desperation in their violence or to near surrender. A ceasefire brokered on December 30, 2016 holds in most parts of the country. Peace talks are to begin on January 23 in Astana (Kazakhstan). Iran, Russia, the Syrian government, sections of the Syrian opposition, Turkey and the United Nations will have seats at the table. The United States and the Europeans will not be there.

The war will not end in Astana. Extremist groups such as the IS and the al-Qaeda-backed Jabhat Fateh al-Sham continue to hold territory. Frustrated extremists who are unwilling to accede to the new situation have already begun to trek to the IS and the al-Qaeda proxy. For them, there is little to be gained from surrender or reconciliation.

Western miscalculations

For the past five years, the main slogan from the Syrian opposition and its Gulf Arab, Turkish and Western allies was ‘Assad Must Go’. It now turns out that the government of Bashar al-Assad will remain. It appeared, even in 2011, that the fall of Mr. Assad without major Western military intervention was unlikely. The Syrian military was far more disciplined than the Libyan military, which had begun to crumble before the NATO bombing on Libya. There was also far less daylight between the Syrian government and its military than there was between the Egyptian government and its military. Absent massive military force, there was going to be no regime change in Syria.

Direct Western military intervention was curtailed — thanks to the fiasco in Iraq — by the lack of domestic appetite in the West for the use of sufficient numbers of troops to fight in Syria. Regime change in Libya and its disastrous aftermath closed the door for a UN authorisation for war on Syria. By 2012, this meant that the Assad government could not be easily defeated. The policy shifted from direct overthrow to a much more cynical use of power. Covert shipments of arms went to rebels of various stripes to help delegitimise the government. Al-Qaeda and other extremist groups came across the Turkish border and from Iraq as well as from the prisons of the Syrian government. Casualty rates edged upwards, with over half a million dead. The impossible promise of Western bombardment kept the war going in the hope that this would force Mr. Assad to negotiate.

The West miscalculated. On September 22, 2016, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made some off-the-cuff remarks at the Dutch Mission to the United Nations. The tape from that meeting, released by WikiLeaks, reveals the general Western consensus on the Syrian conflict. Mr. Kerry indicated that the U.S. had watched the growth of IS, and had hoped to use it as a bargaining chip against the Assad government. As it turned out, Mr. Assad turned to Iran and Russia for help, which is when the Russians intervened directly in September 2015 — ending any possibility of regime change in Damascus and of an IS capture of Damascus. With Mr. Assad now safe, the Russians have begun to draw down their forces, largely to build confidence towards the Astana meeting.

By 2015, it had become clear to the Turkish government that neither would Mr. Assad’s government fall nor could Turkey protect itself from the detritus of its own making — attacks by the IS inside Turkey and a reopened war with the Kurdish resistance movement. Turkey’s government lashed out at its critics — who had much to be critical about — and sought a rapprochement with Russia for economic and political reasons. This new alignment for Turkey meant that its border — long used to resupply the rebels in northern Syria — had to close, substantially reducing the ability of the extremists in Aleppo. The Syrian government, which had waited four years, then moved with great force. It was the Turkish shift that allowed Mr. Assad to take Aleppo.

On January 5, Iraq’s National Security Adviser met Mr. Assad in Damascus to discuss their mutual fight against the IS, just as Iraqi forces cleared the road from Haditha to al-Qa’im, which is on the Iraq-Syria border. These public meetings, a senior Egyptian military officer informs me, mirror the more private interactions between the militaries of Egypt, Iraq, Algeria and Syria. In November, Egyptian army officers went to Syria to re-establish connections that have frayed over the past few years. Now Egypt is ready to send ‘peacekeepers’ to help manage the ceasefire. Meanwhile, the Syrian and Turkish governments have met secretly in Algeria over the past five months to begin a conversation about the status of the Syrian Kurdish enclave on the Turkish border. Algeria is now openly talking about the restoration of legitimacy to the Assad government.

The end is far

The frustration of the extremists will not produce an easy end to this conflict. Harsh violence is the more expected outlet. Attacks in Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — all accused, rightly, of abandoning the uprising — will continue to be a serious problem. Iraq, already accustomed to violence since the illegal U.S. invasion in 2003, saw over 6,000 civilians killed last year alone. It is often strategically targeted against Shia neighbourhoods and religious places in order to deepen the trough of sectarianism. After a spate of attacks in Baghdad, Sunni leader Sheikh Mahdi al-Sumaidaie, the Grand Mufti of Iraq, made a plea on January 5 that echoes across the Arab world: “I confirm that Shias and Sunnis will meet and hold accountable all who betrayed, deceived and burned Iraq.” It was a statement of patriotism out of desperation. This seam of patriotism will be hard for the extremists to rip apart.

North-west of Damascus is Souq Wadi Barada. The al-Fija spring there is a crucial source of water for the capital. Extremist groups have held this source for the past several years and on at least six previous occasions cut off the water supply to Damascus. The fall of Aleppo has led to new fighting in the area, with water now firmly cut off from all but one tank, which the military controls. Damascus faces great hardship. Negotiations are on to let the water flow again. When it does, it will show that reconciliation is possible in these societies.

Foreign Report: Spy Ring Working for «Israel» Exposed in Algeria

Local Editor

An international spy network, comprised of at least 10 agents, operating for the “Israeli” entity was exposed and subsequently arrested in Algeria, according to Channel 2 citing Arab media networks Friday.

Soldiers

Reports indicated that the spies were operating in southern Algeria and held citizenship in a variety of African countries including Libya, Mali, Ethiopia, Liberia, Nigeria and Kenya.

The suspects were arrested on charges of espionage, attempt to create anarchy and damaging national security.

Communications equipment used by the suspects was also seized by authorities.

Arab media reported that the “Israeli” entity’s foreign intelligence agency, Mossad, assassinated in December a Hamas member operating out of Tunisia.

The target, Mohhamed Zawari, known to the “Israeli” entity’s security echelon as “The Engineer,” was found shot to death inside his vehicle in the city of Sfax, local media reported.

Five suspects were later detained by Tunisian authorities, along with multiple vehicles, weapons and mobile devices.

One Tunisian journalist said the killing was carried out by the Mossad, who had been following Zawari for some time, Channel 10 added.

Zawari, an aviation engineer and scientist, was shot three to seven times by unknown assailants in his car near his home.

Though, the motive behind his shooting remains unclear.

According to Channel 10, the nationalities of the detainees included one suspect from the Netherlands, one from Morocco and the rest from varying European countries.

THIS MAY HURT YOUR FEELINGS FRANCE, BUT HELL NO, I AM NOT GOING TO PRAY FOR NICE

by Jonathan Azaziah

Here we go again. Zionist media rolls out a narrative and like clockwork, the lemmings sickeningly and predictably start their French-flag-waving and “Pray For Nice” social media campaigns. Well. I’m not going to do that nor am I going to declare one scintilla of solidarity with France. In fact… FUCK FRANCE. To hell with the colonialist, terrorist, Zionist, genocidal French regime. Straight down to the fire! This is the same gang of arrogant, Rothschild-financed psychopaths that colonized Algeria for 132 years and slaughtered millions. This is the same gang of lunatics that unleashed the most monstrous atrocities against the people of Vietnam (then known as Indochina) for 67 years of colonial occupation; the shelling of Haiphong alone comes to mind off the cuff, in which the French left over 6,000 Vietnamese murdered. This is the same gang of sanguinary maniacs that went on a murdering and raping spree in Madagascar for 61 years, leaving 100,000 innocents dead in the carnage. This is the same gang of Judeophiles that helped ‘Israel’ build its illegal nuclear weapons program and backs the Zionist tumor to the hilt up until this moment. This is the same gang of criminal hypocrites that annihilated Libya, looted Mali’s gold, supported (and continues to support) death squads in Syria and gives droves upon droves of weapons to Saudi Arabia, the grandsire of Wahhabi-Takfiri terrorism, to crush unarmed Bahrainis and mutilate Yemenis from land, air and sea.

And the indigenous White French, in near unanimity, not to mention MORE THAN A FEW House Muslims/Arabs/Browns/Blacks, supported (and continue to support) all of it. But now, after all these crimes, after all this colonialism and ongoing neo-colonialism, after all the services provided to ‘Israel’, I’m supposed to cry over a bunch dead Frogs? What the fuck do I look like, an anaconda whose secondary food supply just dried up? Get the fuck outta here. And here’s the obligatory disclaimer:

I CONDEMN ALL BAD THINGS DONE BY ALL BAD PEOPLE AT ALL TIMES ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD FOREVER AND ALWAYS AND AFTER THAT PLUS CHERRIES ON TOP.

You happy now? Is my humanity officially validated because I made it clear that murdering innocent Europeans is wrong? ‘Cause, you know, y’all weren’t cognizant of that shit already. You need the Moozu-Booza-lum-lum-lums to actually say out loud that killing is, under whatever circumstances, bad, for you to truly know that we’re not all savage, bloodthirsty, deranged dune-devils and desert-demons, right? Again I say, get the flying fuck outta here.

While we’re at it, any Muslim, and I mean ANY Muslim, going out of his or her way to condemn something that has nothing to do with us–as Takfirism, if that’s what the Nice attack is a product of, is a Western-Zionist invention, not an extension of Islam–when the French didn’t utter a word, or stage a protest, or shed a tear, or express solidarity, or condemn their regime for complicity in the terrorism that has made Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Somalia bleed in recent weeks, you’re as much of a problem as the Imperialists in Paris themselves. For you have internalized the Orientalist “be a good Native” pathology they’ve aggressively pushed for us to accept since 9/11 and adopted the identity of a “Goy”, that is, a cattle, in every sense of the word, just like the Jewish Power Configuration wanted you to. The oppressors’ propaganda only works when you fail to resist it and fail harder to stick to your principles which are supposed to safeguard you from spiritually harmful narratives and lifestyles. We should STAY with the rejection of whatever the monsters and their media outlets are telling us to think, do and/or say because they STAY lying through their teeth.

Besides, what took place in Nice bears all the hallmarks of a Mossad/DGSE false flag, regardless of whether Daesh or another like-similar Wahhabi terror group were the trigger-men. The ‘Israeli’ one-woman-Islamophobia-machine Rita Katz has already flooded the web and MSM with “reports” about ISIS celebrating the attacks; the damage is already done. And while the trollish Hollande has already declared that France will ramp up operations in Iraq and Syria in “revenge”, the fact of the matter is, this is routine for any one of these events. Civilians weren’t terrorized and killed in Nice as a pretext to justify more intervention against Damascus and Baghdad, they were killed because there has been a hateful Jewish serial war on Islam since Mossad knocked down the Twin Towers on September 11th, 2001. And the only way to keep that war going, to keep the conflict between White Westerners and the peoples of the Arab-Islamic world flowing in a “clash of civilizations”, to keep the march towards Netanyahu’s “100-year battle with militant Islam” on track, is for attacks like this to occur with regularity. All geopolitical analysis that leaves out this critical point misses the mark miserably.

So while it is tragic that more than 80 innocents have lost their lives, at the end of damn day, I actually give more fucks about ants that I may potentially step on than I do about the ultra-bigoted French. I look at France and see it working day and night to silence Dieudonne, the only person in the whole country with the courage to stand up to the Jewish “elites”. Imagine, a nation whose motto is “liberty, equality, fraternity” is scared of a man who can make peoples of all backgrounds laugh their asses off. I look at France and I see a system centered around a Prison-Industrial-Complex that disproportionately targets young Brown and Black men, who are almost always Muslim, and keeps them in abject poverty.

I look at France and see nightmarish visions of the Samson Option coming to fruition because French leaders thought it was a good idea to help Halakhic-Talmudic fanatics build nukes.

I look at France and see Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, one of Lebanon’s staunchest revolutionaries, rotting in a hellhole where he has been for 29 years for a crime he didn’t commit. I look at France and see nothing but death and destruction across the entire Global South. And now, that very same death and destruction has struck Nice. False flag, “blowback” or otherwise, Malcolm X (R.A.) had a hell of a saying for instances like this: The chickens have come home to roost. Wake up and smell the evil of your regime and the “chosenites” pulling its strings French people, or the roosting has only just begun.

TODAY WE CELEBRATE 54 YEARS OF ALGERIAN LIBERATION; TOMORROW WE WILL CELEBRATE FOR PALESTINE

algeria palestine beautiful

by Jonathan Azaziah

LONG LIVE ALGERIA!

Since the dawn of Rothschild-financed colonialism in the Arab-Islamic world, Algerian Independence undoubtedly stands alone as the greatest of all our victories. After 132 years of French colonial occupation, the Algerian Resistance prevailed on this day in 1962, securing a triumph that now stands as one of modern history’s most important moments. A million and a half martyrs were given in the glorious armed struggle against the arrogant French Imperialists from 1954-1962, and despite every subversive, corrosive, destructive trick employed by Paris, Ahmed Ben Bella and the FLN, backed by the revolutionary godfather of Arab Nationalism Gamal Abdel Nasser, stood their ground, WON, and solidified themselves as paragons of steadfastness and decolonization to be emulated until the end of time.

It is also imperative to note that it was not only France whom Algerians battled against but the ‘Israeli’ monsters as well. Since 1870, when a French Zionist-Freemasonic Jew named Adolphe Crémieux helped pass the Crémieux Decree that facilitated the settlement of over 35,000 French Jews on Algerian soil, French Jews played a prominent role in colonizing the North African giant. And when the liberation struggle kicked into full force, it was the French Jews’ other genocidal project, ‘Israel’, that they turned to for assistance to preserve their presence as hegemons in Algeria.

Aman, the Zionist entity’s military intelligence wing, worked intimately with SDECE (French intelligence) to undermine Algerian freedom fighters and even attempted an assassination on Ahmed Ben Bella through the hijacking of his plane. The notorious pro-colonialist terrorist group, the French Secret Army Organization (OAS), had an exclusively Jewish faction and the upper echelons of its leadership were being advised on the intricacies of clandestine warfare by none other than Irgun, the notorious mass murdering ‘Israeli’ terrorist organ, as well as the Mossad. Thus, Algeria’s victory wasn’t just a victory over European colonialism but International Zionism. And it is because of this that since the decolonization of Algeria and the triumph over the French-Mossad-OAS efforts to reverse Algerian liberation, ‘Israel’ has steadfastly targeted Algiers with a plethora of designs, from car bombings to spying operations, “regime change” plots to Oded Yinon-style destabilization and balkanization via the traitorous Ferhat Mehenni and his separatist group the Mouvement pour l’autonomie de la Kabylie (MAK).

The ‘Israeli’ tumor and its French ZOG want to keep these truths buried and they hopelessly long for the world to forget about this momentous day 54 years ago because Algeria absolutely, certainly, definitely, UNDENIABLY represents the proper model for Palestinian liberation, not this “BDS” nonsense that is based on a Jewish-dominated “movement” in South Africa which ended political apartheid, yes, but strategically ensured that ties with the ‘Israeli’ enemy and economic apartheid, i.e. Jewish and Shabbos “Goy” Afrikaner wealth, power and influence, remained very much intact.

The Algerians rose up against their colonizers with their dignity, their faith, their blood, their knowledge of the land and their will to resist and following a bloody but successful fight, the French packed their bags and left in humiliating defeat after 132 years of illegally squatting on Algerian territory. Just recounting the history in such succinct terms eerily echoes Palestine’s current situation right down to the century and change that the colonization lasted. The fact that the “Palestine Solidarity Movement” NEVER draws these parallels except to warn of impending doom and gloom because some usurping, land-stealing, raping, pillaging, hideous, baby-slaughtering, nuke-holding, terrorist, monstrous, supremacist Yahoudlings will get (rightfully) trampled on in the potential battle shows you that the primary concern of these “activists” isn’t the rights of the indigenous but the well-being of the colonizers.

Building on that very point, it is exceedingly ironic that the atrociously pro-‘Israel’ French “philosopher” Jean-Paul Sartre infamously noted that the people of France, who benefited financially in a large way from the occupation of Algeria, were collectively responsible for the plight of Algerians and this was (and is) considered radical. But when the very same anti-colonialist logic is applied to Jews who make up the “elite” in ALL Western countries and who refuse to call for “Death to ‘Israel’!” (they literally never utter the phrase) and the removal of EVERY Zionist settler because keeping ‘Israel’ alive is important to them AS JEWS, such analysis is deemed “anti-Semitic” by the aforementioned “human rights” campaigners? And these two-faced people are supposed to be our partners in the push to restore Al-Quds? It’s absurd. This also shows you, quite clearly, just how deathly scared Empire Judaica is of this scenario to even be discussed, even just a bit, even in the most toothless of circles.

The Algerian model represents Zionism’s end; the “BDS” model represents Zionism’s preservation. If the Right of Return and freeing Palestine from the River to the Sea are our end goals–and they damn sure are–how is it even a question in which direction we should sail our ship towards?

The Algerians had Nasser; Palestinians have Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Syrian President Dr. Bashar al-Assad and Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi.

The Algerians fought the French ZOG openly and the Jewish Power Matrix by extension; the Palestinians are fighting the Jewish Power Matrix openly and the French ZOG by extension. In an infinite number of ways, the Algerian and Falasteeni struggles are mirror images of one another. Truly, the amount of nexus points is staggering!

So let us embrace the Algeria(-Hizbullah) Option!

To hell with the “solidarity” cowards and other fake friends of the Palestinian cause!

To hell with Jewish sensitivities.

Today, July 5th, 2016, we celebrate the Algerians’ historic liberation.

Tomorrow, insha’ALLAH khair ya Rab, we will celebrate the complete freedom of Palestine when the Zionist Jews depart from the Holy Land as the French did from Algeria 54 years ago.

We love you Algeria! And we love that you have your day! May your God-sent victory continue to light our way.

REFUGEES OF RAP: FRENCH-FUNDED “HIP-HOP” TOOLS FOR “REGIME CHANGE” IN SYRIA

anti assad protests

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Goddamn do I hate these Judaized, Westoxified, colonized, House Arab, House Muslim motherfuckers, goddamn them all to hell. I’m sick right now. The reason? Allow me to introduce you to the Refugees of Rap, a “Hip-Hop” group which specializes in REGIME CHANGE RAP. No, you didn’t read that incorrectly. REGIME CHANGE RAP. Cut from the same cloth as the “emcees” funded by the US State Dept and Mossad-CIA tools Khaled M and Omar Offendum, Al-Jazeera says the Refugees of Rap are waging a “lyrical war” on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. There are four quite glaringly disturbing things about these agent provocateurs, beyond the mere obviousness of how disgusting it is that Global South “MCs” are spewing bars in the name of a Zionist-Imperialist coup agenda.

Firstly, the Yarmouk tripartite is funded by the UN and… wait for it… THE FRENCH REGIME, arguably the most active former colonialist power in agitating for Assad’s ouster, and were in fact granted asylum directly by Paris, which expedited their visas because it wanted them to “continue their project”. Imagine, “revolutionary Hip-Hop” artists fully backed by the usurping Zionist entity’s favorite instrument for international cover-ups, the UN, and Zionist-occupied France. Not to mention of course, they’re getting press coverage from the Qatari tyrant’s premier propaganda organ, Al-Jazeera, which just might be the single-most important element in brainwashing the Ummah’s youth and whipping up Arab-Muslim “popular” support for the entire assault on the Syrian Arab Republic. Colonialists, globalists and GCC despots, the very peaks of “resistance”, ain’t they? The irony is apparently more than lost on these fools.

Secondly, the Refugees of Rap invoked “Ibrahim Qashoush” as their inspiration for pursuing “regime change” in Syria through their music. “Qashoush”, as many of you may know, went viral with “his” song “Syrian Revolutionary Dabke”, also known as “Yallah, Irhal Ya Bashar”. It is said–repeated ad nauseam really, in near-robotic fashion–that he was killed by the Syrian government, which allegedly slit his throat and ripped his vocal chords out. Cool story, right? And that’s exactly what it is. A cool, calm, collected, calculated STORY cooked up in the bowels of Langley and Herzliya. The song attributed to “Qashoush” most definitely was and is (since Refugees of Rap continue its destabilizing legacy) part of the ongoing Zionist media war against Syria.

Just look at the language in the video’s description: “Response from the streets of Hama to Bashar’s speech, with additional music & translation added by the Creative Syrian Revolution.” There is no evidence of any singer whatsoever in the video. The “additional music” is in fact ALL of the music. I ran the song by numerous producers that I work with, all of whom are brilliant beyond measure and operate with the absolute top-of-the-line in recording software and equipment, and they confirmed to me that the song is indeed 100% studio produced, no ifs, ands or buts about it. The “Creative Syrian Revolution”, for the record, is a Facebook page operated by “activists” from none other than the Syrian Human Rights Committee, an organization I exposed in my very first Syria article,“Kiss Of ‘Democratic’ Death: Israel’s Plot To Take Down Syria I”. The SHRC is Mossad-linked as well as Soros-backed via HRW and Amnesty.

The nail in the coffin about “Qashoush” and the track itself though comes from the Sulzberger-owned New York Times: “No one in Hama seems to agree on who wrote the song”, indicating undoubtedly that the song did not come from inside Syria (even among the “revolutionist” turncoats and Takfiri sympathizers) but abroad. And, “He was relatively unknown before July 4, when his body was found, then buried in the city’s Safa cemetery, near the highway.” Yeah, relatively unknown because he doesn’t exist, hence why I put “Ibrahim Qashoush” in quotation marks. “Ibrahim Qashoush” is in fact a media creation and a myth used by the Anglo-Zionist Empire to coopt Arab-Muslim artists and weaponize their music as putschist hasbara. Getting REALLY deep into the dirt, even the pictures of “Qashoush” are fishier than fishy. If one compares the alleged “live” photo of “Qashoush” with the alleged “dead” photo of “Qashoush”, you don’t have to be a forensics expert to figure out this isn’t a matter of distortion/disfigurement in death but totally different photographs of totally different people! It’s astounding that not a single analyst has picked up on any of this! And it’s even more astounding that the Refugees of Rap are doing what they’re doing based on a fictional character spoonfed to them by the enemies of humanity!

qashoush alive

ibrahim-qashoush-dead

Here is “Qashoush” living and breathing so we’re told.Here is “Qashoush” dead so we’re told. Two different persons; it’s clearer than the blueness of the sky on a bright, sunny day.

Thirdly, Al-Jazeera’s profile of the “regime change” rappers reveals that they recorded much of their music “secretly” in Yarmouk, ostensibly to duck the Syrian government’s Moukhabarat (security services). But it is a well-established fact now, although the likes of Electronic “Intifada”, Mondoweiss and the other usual “Palestine Solidarity Movement” activist suspects continue to fail miserably on the topic, that Yarmouk was overrun by the Takfiri terrorist scourge–first the FSA and then Nusra followed by Mossad Daesh–not the Syrian government, and these Wahhabi thugs subsequently looted businesses, occupied homes, carried out massacres and committed various other crimes that led to the mass exodus from the once-vibrant, Palestinian-Syrian city-camp. And considering the Wahhabi-Takfiri character of these rebels and their absolute hatred of music, how is it that Refugees of Rap were able to record their music without any hassle whatsoever while others who merely PLAYED music in their cars or boomboxes or stereo systems were at the very best lashed and beaten and at the very worst decapitated? It’s an amazingly relevant question. With the French regime being among the top backers of the Takfiris as well as the funders and asylum-facilitators of these putrid “Hip-Hop”pretenders, were the Takfiris placing their hateful, un-Islamic ideology aside and giving the Refugees of Rap protection because they shared the same “regime change” agenda? Certainly appears that way.

Which brings me to the fourth, final and perhaps most infuriating point of all. The members of the Refugees of Rap are Palestinian (Yaser and Muhammad Jamous), Algerian (Ahmad) and Syrian (Muhammad Jawad). What in the name of all that is good and proper in the world are Palestinians, an Algerian and a Syrian rapping about “regime change” in Syria for and taking money FROM THE FRENCH REGIME to further their careers along?

 

It is the French regime which wiped out MILLIONS in its 132-year colonization of Algeria, not to mention millions of indigenous persons elsewhere, and it is the French regime which helped the usurping, genocidal, artificial Jewish entity build its illegal arsenal of nuclear weapons in Dimona, a program that threatens not only Palestine and the Ummah but the whole damn planet.

Meanwhile, it is the Syrian Arab Republic which remains the only Arab state to provide guns, bullets, missiles, rockets and other forms of military gear to the Palestinian Resistance and is also the only Arab state to treat Palestinians as equals and brothers, granting them the same benefits and human rights enjoyed by all Syrians. AND! Syria has backed Algeria fully during these most tumultuous times in which France and AFRICOM have attempted to destabilize the Algerian state on more than one occasion. It literally doesn’t get anymore ANTI-PALESTINIAN, ANTI-ALGERIAN and ANTI-SYRIAN than France! Are they not aware of how insanely backwards all this is? Or is it that they are actually very well aware and simply have no dignity or sense of history, homeland, identity and liberationist consciousness, thus making it perfectly okay in their colonized minds to go right along with the “regime change” plot. Whether they know it or not is ultimately extraneous, as these individuals have greatly betrayed their respective original and adoptive countries and brought forth a tsunami of disgrace upon them.

Hip-Hop, very similar to Jihad, is a vehicle for change, resistance, revolution and awakening when the target of such actions is legitimate. Just like there is no “Jihad” when the guns, ammo, media backing, medical treatment, logistics, intelligence and overall agenda are American and ‘Israeli’, there is no “Hip-Hop” when your beats, rhymes and message are bought and paid for by Empire Judaica and its vassals. Verily, it is this hypocrisy that unites Refugees of Rap and the Wahhabi-Takfiri filth that has occupied Syria: Despite all of the helping hands given to them by the Zionist Power Matrix, they still delusionally act as if they are legitimate “Jihadis” in regards to the latter and “emcees” in regards to the former. Takfiri-sympathizing has no place in revolutionary, anti-Zionist, anti-Imperialist discourse, and “regime change rap” has no place in Hip-Hop. Period.

Expose the Refugees of Rap and tear them down as you would any other betrayer, hater and destabilizer of Syria.

They made their bed–with French, UN and Qatari help–so now it’s time for them to lay in it.

As for real Jihad, look no further than Hizbullah, Ansarullah, the IRGCand the Iraqi Resistance. And as for real Resistance Hip-Hop, where real Jihad just so happens to meet in a beautiful, Musical-Mouqawamist nexus, look no further than Blak Madeen (Yusuf Abdul-Mateen and Al-J), Rafiqi Green, Khanverse and Madd Cold. We got you more than covered.

Algeria Readies Itself For Potential Western Shift In Strategy, Moves Closer To Russia, Anti-NATO Bloc

MAY 18, 2016

Algeria2

By Brandon Turbeville

As the Syrian crisis drags on and hopes of a peaceful resolution or, at the very least, a return to relative normalcy in Libya seem very distant, Algeria should, by now, begin suspecting that it might soon find itself in the Anglo-American crosshairs. There is now rapidly growing evidence that Algeria is doing just that.

Having survived an attempted destabilization during the Western-inspired and Western-orchestrated “Arab Spring” color revolution, Algeria has been doing whatever it can to increase security in, on, and around its borders. For this reason, it has increased cooperation with its neighbor Tunisia, which has been the target of terrorists backed by the West and GCC nations.

Having acted quickly and with an iron fist, any attempt to disrupt the functioning of the Algerian government was quashed during the stream of U.S.-engineered color revolutions and destabilizations. Yet, even though the “Arab Spring” style protests were short-lived and ineffective, Algeria has not simply rested on its laurels in the aftermath. In fact, Algeria has moved to increase security, improve its military capabilities, and work with its neighbors to ensure that they do not fall prey to destabilizations or color revolutions in the future.

Algeria has also moved to deepen its ties with Russia and those countries that are part of an unofficial but growing and obvious anti-NATO bloc. In other words, Algeria is moving closer to joining the multi-polar collection of nations attempting to act as a counterforce to the NATO powers.

Two notable instances of increased cooperation between Algeria and the anti-NATO alliance are therecent provision of 40 attack helicopters by Russia to Algeria and the recent diplomatic visit to Syria by the Algerian government.

 

The helicopter, known as the “Night Hunter” in Russia, is reported to be one of the best in the world, and it is capable of carrying out its missions in both day and night as well as in adverse weather conditions. The helicopter comes with a MI-28NE modification capability that allows the ship to be flown from the pilot’s cockpit and the operator pilot’s cockpit.

The delivery of the Russian helicopters to Algeria is nothing new. In 2005-2006, Russia provided Algeria with 28 Su-30MKA, 16 Yak-130 jet trainers and 185 T-90S tanks. In 2015, a contract was signed for the delivery of 14 Su-30MKA fighters in 2016-2017. The transfer of the MI-28 helicopters is the result of a bilateral agreement between Russia and Algeria.

“The Algerian military is satisfied with the quality of Russian weapons, which has proven itself well in the specific conditions here, namely the desert with its extremely high temperatures and sandstorms. So there are good prospects for continuing close cooperation in the military-technical area on a wide nomenclature of supplies,” Alexander Zolotov, Russian Ambassador to Algeria, told RIA Novosti in an interview.

Yet, while the deliveries are not newsworthy in and of themselves, the context in which they occurare worth discussing.

Algeria, of course, is becoming concerned with increasing amounts of ISIS activity in the region, notably in Libya and Tunisia and is focusing on policing its borders with the two embattled countries as well as with Niger and Mali for that reason. The Algerian government, which has reacted quickly to terrorist threats in the past, is perhaps worried that ISIS attacks may eventually begin to take place inside its borders, particularly as a result of Western targeting of the governmental structure in the future.

In February, Algeria and Russia embarked upon a plan to deepen bilateral military and economic cooperation.

In regards to Syria, Monday April 25, 2016 marked the first official visit to Syria since 2011 by any Algerian official, signaling a growing tendency to increase ties and cooperation with the embattled nation despite the crying and screaming of the United States, EU, and NATO. Earlier, in March, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mu’allem paid a visit to the Algerian capital where the stated goal of the visit was to deepen and strengthen economic ties between the two countries.

As Ulson Gunnar writes in his article, “Washington’s Fake War On ISIS ‘Moves’ To Libya,”

Syria is not only no longer safe for IS, it has become a grave in which IS is being buried alive. This is thanks not to a successful anti-terror campaign waged by Washington and its allies, but by swift and successful operations carried out by Moscow, Tehran, and their allies in Damascus. Indeed, with IS supply lines being cut from their source in Turkey and their forces being pushed back across Syrian territory, liquidation of their assets in Syria is well underway. Likewise in Iraq, feigned US operations to stop IS have given way to an increase in cooperation between Baghdad, Tehran, and Damascus.

What started out as an attempt to divide and destroy Iran’s arc of influence across the region has galvanized it instead.

Moving the mercenary forces of IS out of the region is instrumental in ensuring they “live to fight another day.” By placing them in Libya, Washington and its allies hope they will be far out of reach of the growing coalition truly fighting them across the Levant. Further more, placing them in Libya allows other leftover “projects” from the “Arab Spring” to be revisited, such as the destabilization and destruction of Algeria, Tunisia and perhaps even another attempt to destabilize and destroy Egypt.

IS’ presence in Libya could also be used as a pretext for open-ended and much broader military intervention throughout all of Africa by US forces and their European and Persian Gulf allies. As the US has done in Syria, where it has conducted operations for now over a year and a half to absolutely no avail, but has managed to prop up proxy forces and continue undermining and threatening targeted nations, it will likewise do so regarding IS in Libya and its inevitable and predictable spread beyond.

Indeed, Gunnar summarizes much of what Algeria knows and fears in relation to IS and the NATO/Anglo-American scheme for world hegemony. For this reason, Algeria is preparing for the potential shift in the Western focus in terms of specific battlefields, moving from Syria to Libya and Westward from there.

While not earth-shattering news, Algeria’s growing fondness for the Russian bloc of nations is yet another sign of Washington’s loss of influence across the world and the increasingly bankrupt position held by the U.S. and NATO.
