لا استراتيجية مغايرة لترامب بل حملة متصاعدة ضدّ إيران لحماية «إسرائيل»

يناير 14, 2019

د. عصام نعمان

من القاهرة أطلق مايك بومبيو، نيابةً عن دونالد ترامب، حملةً بمحاور متعدّدة ضدّ خصوم الولايات المتحدة في غرب آسيا، ولا سيما في المشرق العربي. بومبيو تقصّد ان يقتصر خطابه على خطوط عريضة لعلمه أنّ رئيسه المتقلّب المزاج لن يستقرّ على رأي وأنّ ما سيقوله هو أو غيره اليوم قد يقول ترامب عكسه غداً.

اللافت في خطاب وزير الخارجية الأميركي حرصه على دحض الخطاب الذي كان ألقاه باراك أوباما في العاصمة نفسها قبل عشر سنوات. فقد وصف الرئيس الأميركي الأسبق بالضعف في تصدّيه لما أسماه «الخطر الإيراني الإقليمي» ما أدّى الى تقوية النظام الإسلامي في طهران وتشجيعه على «بسط نفوذه من اليمن الى العراق، والى سورية، وأبعد من ذلك الى لبنان».

بومبيو لم يركّز حملته على إيران فحسب، بل تناول فيها ايضاً حزب الله اللبناني، مؤكداً انّ واشنطن سوف تصعّد ضغوطها عليه بقوله: «في لبنان، ما زال لحزب الله وجود كبير، لكننا لن نقبل هذا الوضع الراهن لأنّ عقوباتنا الشديدة ضدّ إيران موجّهة ايضاً ضدّ هذا التنظيم الإرهابي وقادته، بمن فيهم نجل حسن نصرالله زعيم حزب الله». الى ذلك، ادّعى بومبيو انّ «ميل أميركا الى التمنيات جعلنا نتجاهل كيف قام حزب الله بتجميع ترسانة ضخمة مؤلفة من نحو 130 الف صاروخ وتخزين الأسلحة ونشرها في البلدات والقرى اللبنانية … هذه الترسانة موجّهة مباشرةً ضدّ حليفتنا «إسرائيل». فوق ذلك، تعهّد بومبيو بأن تواصل حكومته تعقّب الإرهابيين الذين يسعون الى التمدّد في ليبيا واليمن … ونحن ندعم بقوة جهود «إسرائيل» لمنع طهران من تحويل سورية الى لبنان آخر».

هذه هي، إذاً، محاور حملة بومبيو الترامبية بخطوطها العريضة، حتى إشعار آخر: تشديدُ الضغوط والعقوبات على إيران وحلفائها وحمايةُ «إسرائيل» ودعمها بسخاء ومواجهة التنظيمات الإرهابية ومَن تعتبرهم الولايات المتحدة بمثابة تنظيمات شبيهة او رديفة في سورية ولبنان واليمن.

لا تغيير لافتاً في حملة بومبيو الترامبية، لا من حيث الغايات ولا الوسائل. «إسرائيل» كانت دائماً، وما زالت، الحليفة الرئيسة للولايات المتحدة الجديرة بالرعاية والحماية في وجه العرب المعادين لها وإيران كانت دائماً، وما زالت، محور عداءٍ أميركي مركّزاً ومتواصلاً منذ الثورة التي أزاحت الشاه، حليف واشنطن المخلص، وأوصلت نقيضه الإمام الخميني وأنصاره إلى السلطة فيما سورية وتنظيمات المقاومة اللبنانية والفلسطينية واليمنية كانت دائماً، وما زالت، موضوع ملاحقة دائمة بعداءٍ شديد من جانب أميركا و«إسرائيل» شمل أيضاً الحكومات والقوى المناهضة لهما في المنطقة.

لعلّ الأمر الوحيد المغاير الذي لم يأتِ بومبيو على ذكره هو تعاون الولايات المتحدة الضمني والعلني مع تنظيمات إرهابية ناشطة في سورية ولبنان والعراق وسيناء المصرية واليمن ضدّ الحكومات والقوى المعادية لـِ «إسرائيل» ولحاميتها أميركا. ذلك أنّ واشنطن بادرت خلال اضطرابات ما يسمّى «الربيع العربي» الى توظيف عشرات التنظيمات الإرهابية الإسلاموية في خدمة أغراضها العدوانية ضدّ حكومات وقوى تحررية في أقطار عربية عدّة.

لا بومبيو، ولا من قبله رئيسه ترامب، هدّد باستعمال مزيدٍ من العنف المباشر ضدّ الدول والتنظيمات المعادية للولايات المتحدة و«إسرائيل» في المنطقة. هذا لا يعني بطبيعة الحال مهادنتها. بالعكس، أميركا ستثابر، شأنها اليوم، في اعتماد «الحرب الناعمة» المتصاعدة ضدّ أعدائها وأعداء الكيان الصهيوني. الحرب الناعمة تنطوي على فصول ساخنة تتعهّد واشنطن جانبها «المريح» المتمثل باستعمال سلاح الجو والحروب الأهلية التي يتولاها غيرها من وكلاء وتنظيمات إرهابية وحركات فئوية تتقن فن إثارة الفتن الطائفية، كما تقوم أميركا بفرض عقوبات اقتصادية وحروب تجارية ضدّ خصومها ومنافسيها.

في كلّ مراحل وجوانب الحرب الناعمة، لا دور لجنود أميركيين على الأرض. ذلك يجنّب الولايات المتحدة خسائر بشرية فادحة لطالما شكت منها وأرهقتها في حروب كوريا وفيتنام وأفغانستان والعراق ما حملها على «اختراع» الحرب الناعمة لتتفادى خسائر بشرية وتوفّر على نفسها سخط وتقريع شديدين من أهالي الجنود ونكسات سياسية في الداخل.

عامل آخر يدفع ترامب الى تفادي التدخل بقوات برية والتعرّض تالياً الى خسائر بشرية هو تصاعد المعارضة الداخلية ضدّه نتيجةَ سلوكه مسالك سياسية واقتصادية غريبة وخطيرة ما أقلق الرأي العام الأميركي وضاعف تحفظه وحذره من مغامراته السياسية والأمنية، ومعارضة إرسال قوات برية الى مناطق النزاع.

لكلّ هذه الأسباب والعوامل لن يتأتّى عن جولة بومبيو، وقبله مستشار الأمن القومي جون بولتون، ايّ فصول ساخنة تتعدّى تلك المعمول بها حالياً في ميادين الصراع في سورية والعراق وفلسطين واليمن وأفغانستان. فقد باشرت إدارة ترامب سحب قواتها ومعداتها العسكرية من سورية، في إطار تواطؤ تحت الطاولة مع تركيا يرمي الى إحلال قوات تركية محلّ قواتها المنسحبة. كلّ ذلك لتفادي حلول قوات سورية محلها ما يهدّد جهود أميركا، ومن ورائها «إسرائيل»، لتفكيك سورية وتقسيمها.

باختصار، ستثابر إدارة ترامب في اعتماد مختلف أشكال الحرب الناعمة بغية مشاغلة وإضعاف أعداء أميركا و«إسرائيل» في كلّ مكان، ولا سيما في سورية ولبنان والعراق واليمن. وعليه، يمكن اعتبار ما يحدث الآن، بالتواطؤ مع تركيا أو من دونه، في إدلب وغرب حلب وشرق الفرات، وما يحدث على طول حدود لبنان مع فلسطين المحتلة في سياق عملية «درع شمالي» وسواها، وما يحدث على حدود قطاع غزة وفي محيطه من مناوشات وعمليات عدوانية دورية، وما يحدث في العراق بعد سحب بعض القوات الأميركية من سورية وتركيزها في قاعدة عين الأسد في محافظة الأنبار العراقية، وما يحدث في اليمن من مجازر ومآسٍ يقوم بها حلفاء أميركا… أجل، يمكن اعتبار كلّ هذه الاعتداءات والاشتباكات والمناوشات تجليات ميدانية للحملة الصهيوأميركية المتجدّدة التي يعتمدها ساكن البيت الأبيض في غمرة حاله المزاجية الراهنة والمرشحة دائماً الى صعودٍ وهبوط.

US Lawyers ’Paying Attention’ as Female Saudi Activist Due in Court

Local Editor

Female human rights activist Israa al-Ghomgham could become the first woman ever sentenced to death for nonviolent protest in Saudi Arabia on Sunday in a case human rights lawyers say “may well constitute multiple violations of international human rights law.”

Al-Ghomgham is one of six Saudi human rights defenders standing trial at the country’s infamous Specialized Criminal Court, five of whom are facing possible death sentences. The court has a history of unfair trials resulting in executions.

Saudi Arabia’s crackdown on dissent is attracting fresh attention following the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi late last year.

Israa al-Ghomgham’s case 

Al-Ghomgham has been in detention since 2015, when she was arrested for activism related to fighting discrimination against Saudi Arabia’s Shiite Muslim minority.

She is charged with things including chanting “we shall not be humiliated,” and “we demand penalties for those who fired bullets,” according to a brief on the case written by international human rights lawyer Oliver Windridge, which was circulated by the American Bar Association Center for Human Rights on Friday.

Saudi Arabia’s Specialized Criminal Court was created to hear terrorism cases, but Windridge says “its focus appears to have moved from terrorist suspects to human rights defenders and anti-government protesters.”

Violations of international human rights law?

In his brief, Windridge lays out three ways in which the prosecution’s indictment against al-Ghomgham may violate international law:

First, he points out that the prosecution is relying on confessions from all six of the accused. Saudi Arabia has a history of relying on confessions made after torture. Torture is banned under international law, and any allegations of it are required to be investigated.

Second, Windridge points out the non-serious nature of the crimes the accused are charged with, for which the prosecution is seeking the death sentence in five cases. Windridge says the non-violent crimes fall “well short” of the standard required to make the death penalty acceptable under international law.

Third, Windridge points out that many of the slogans the accused are charged with chanting, such as “we demand the annulment of capital punishment sentences,” are benign and would, “even if proved to be true… fall well within permitted forms of expression under international human rights law”.

International attention

In an email, the American Bar Association Center for Human Rights said it hoped, “to make it known that the international community is closely monitoring this situation and is paying attention to the outcome of (al-Ghomgham’s) case.”

“In my view, the specialized criminal court continues, in all these cases, to violate international human rights law,” Windridge told CBS News.

The six activists, including al-Ghomgham, are due to appear in court on Sunday, January 13.

Islamic Movement in Nigeria: Anti-imperialism Organization in Africa

Harun Elbinawi

Imperialism is a system in which a rich and powerful country controls the instrument of leadership and by extension the resources of other less powerful countries, or a desire for control over other countries.

Imperialism and neo-colonialism are two faces of the same coin. Due to intense pressure from Nationalists, greedy European colonialists were forced to leave Africa but they never left. They later engineered coups and counter-coups to impose their puppets to facilitate their continue looting of African resources.

Dear Friends, please check the mineral resources map of the African continent. Africa is among the richest continents in terms of resources but it is the poorest continent in the world. Why? The rich African resources are being looted by the greedy imperialist directly or via their lackeys who are head of government of African countries.

My country, Nigeria, is rich in mineral resources that included Crude Oil but today Nigeria is the extreme capital of the whole world. The funds that should have been used for developmental purposes were looted by corrupt leaders and deposited in Western financial institutions for safe keeping. Nigeria, a country of more than 180 million in population, can only provide 4,000MW of electricity. Funds earmarked for power were looted and there is no single person in jail for that.

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky is an Anti-imperialism organization. The IMN awakens Nigerians and Africans of the ills of imperialism and neo-colonialism and call on Africans to free the continent of this scourge. There were great African anti-imperialism leaders in the past. Great Heroes such as Patrick Lumumba, Thomas Sankara etc. all murdered by the greedy and arrogant imperialist.

The recent brutal and genocidal attack of the Islamic Movement by the Buhari regime that resulted in the inhuman slaughter of more than one thousand innocent children, women and men in Zaria in December 2015 was a desperate quest to extinguish this anti-imperialism light in Africa. For more than 20 years now, whenever any government assume power in Nigeria, three entities [US, Saudi Arabia & the “Israeli” regime] send security reports against Sheikh Zakzaky and the Islamic Movement. We have it on credible information that since 2004 the US regime via the CIA have IMN desk at the American embassy in Abuja. A desk dedicated to the Islamic Movement.

In order to perpetuate imperialism looting of African resources, the arrogant imperialist considered organizations such as the Islamic Movement as a threat to them and they always plan on how to either cripple or destroy such organizations. The main reason of the brutal and inhuman Zaria genocide. The Saudi regime was the front of the Zaria genocide but if the mask is removed the greedy imperialists are behind the mask.

On a Final note, Africans need to wake up and take this rich continent back from the greedy agents of imperialism and neo-colonialism that has impoverished Africans. African resources should be for Africans not for the greedy Western imperialists.

Nigeria: When the President become a Liar

“Investors are falling over themselves to come and do business in Nigeria” -President Buhari

1st October 2016 marked the 56th year anniversary of Nigerian independence from British colonialism and as its customary the Leader of the country addressed the country to commemorate such important occasion. This year President Buhari addressed the nation but his speech was full of questions instead of addressing Nigerian problems.

The above excerpt quotation was from the speech and all Nigerians knows that what the President said was not correct. Investors are not trooping into Nigeria at the moment, infact investors are leaving Nigeria due to the bad state of the economy. The Nigerian economy is in deep recession and the pilots of the economy are responsible but the same pilots are using Clerics in Northern Nigeria to deceive the masses that God is to be blame for their plight. If the economy is healthy and developing these people would have praise President Buhari but now that the economy is bad and in recession they are blaming God!

In his Independence Day speech President Buhari also said that his government had defeated the Boko Haram insurgency last December. Nigerians especially those in Northeast know that this is not true. Nigerians are still attack, kill and maimed in the Northeast to this day.

What actually happened in Nigeria last December was the inhuman Zaria massacre of IMN members that was ordered by President Buhari to serve a foreign imperialist agenda that has the Saudi Wahhabi regime as a front. More than one thousand Nigerians that included women, children and the aged were brutally murdered by the Nigerian army in less than 48 hours and their death bodies dumped in mass graves. The Saudi King immediately called President Buhari to congratulate him. President Buhari tried to defend the massacre at the earliest period but he is now trying to distance himself from it since the world had rejected their narration and condemned the inhuman massacre.

The Buhari administration is turning out to be the biggest catastrophe in the history of Nigeria. President Buhari ignorantly assumed that if he is loyal to Western imperialism then they will grant him all his wishes. He should have studied the life of former Iraqi despot Saddam Hussein and his relationship with Western imperialism. One day the same West will deliver Buhari and his murderous gang to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for their role in the Zaria massacre.

The true Nigerian situation is that the economy is in a very bad state, people are dying of hunger, inflation is high, unemployment is high, suicidal rate have increase and the Nigerian currency is freely falling against the US dollars. Nigeria today needs a responsible leader who will face these challenges and addressed these problems and not a President who will be lying to them.

On a last note, I want to remind President Buhari that God is just and will surely punish all those who mass-murdered His servants and dumped their bodies in mass graves. To all Nigerians ” Happy Independence Day anniversary!”

Friday Reflection: Be Principled & Do Not Be a Reactionary

Friday Reflection: Be Principled & Do Not Be a Reactionary

“In Islam, everything is a prelude to making true human beings. If this creature is left to itself, it will ruin and destroy the whole world.”

#ImamKhomeini (ra)

When the savage Saudi regime sponsored and financed the brutal and inhuman slaughter of 1000+ innocent and defenseless civilians in Zaria in December 2015, they asked their paid Nigerian agents to be shouting “Shia Kafir (Shia are infidels)”. They were expecting members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria to reciprocate and be saying “Sunni Kafir” or even “Wahhabi Kafir” but that never happened. Members of the Islamic Movement continue to promote and propagate the true teachings of Islam. They continue to chin out the eternal and unmatchable words of Imam Ali (as) – words that are only surpassed by the Quran and sayings of the seal of all Prophets and Messenger of God (sa).

When the notorious Child-killer and mass grave digger Elrufai recruited Shia traitors and asked them to question the authenticity of the Shia-ness of members of the Islamic Movement, they were not dignified with an answer. The murderous terrorist Elrufai buried Shia children alive in Mando mass grave according to Amnesty international.

It is a yearly tradition for Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky to provide food items to his neighbors during the Ramadan Fast. After the Zaria genocide he instructed that the tradition should not only continue but should be expanded to include more people. After the Zaria genocide, the Buhari regime recruited some of the neighbors of Sheikh Zakzaky to spread lies and fake propaganda against him and the Islamic Movement. But despite all these, Sheikh Zakzaky insisted that they should be provided with food items during Ramadan.

The path of greatness is to be principled in life. Be guided with the set of Principles as coded in the Quran if you are a Muslim. And like wise the Bible for Christians. Never be a reactionary who is guided by the reactions to the actions of others. Imagine reacting to the actions of bloodthirsty Wahhabi barbarians like Buhari, Elrufai, Buratai and gang! One will end up burying children in mass graves at night.

Prophet Muhammad (sa) had a Jewish neighbor who frequently dumped all their refuse in the house of the Prophet. If people complained the Prophet will say do not talk. The Prophet used to personally evacuate the refuse dump. Then one day the Prophet did not see refuse dump. The next day no refuse dump. The Prophet went to his Neighbor’s house and asked. He was told his Jewish neighbor was sick. The Prophet prayed for quick recovery. This was how that his neighbor embraced Islam. This is the true Islam. Violent and bloodthirsty Wahhabism is not Islam. This is a deviation that has today produced all the murderous terrorists that are killing the innocent in the name of Islam.

Jumu’at Mubarak to Muslims and bless Weekend to All Friends!

Adeyanju Deji – Hero of Freedom

Adeyanju Deji – Hero of Freedom

We fixed an appointment. We did not used the phones because all our phone lines were bugged by the oppressive and tyrannical Buhari regime. A regime of wicked mass murderers and notorious Child-killers.

I arrived Abuja for the appointment. I made contact with Prince Adeyanju Deji. He told me he is at the Venue of the Daily #FreeZakzaky Sit-down protest. I proceeded to the protest venue. I saw Adeyanju Deji given speech in Hausa Language about the illegal and unlawful detention of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his injured wife. We waited until the end of the day event then he came towards me. We finally met. We embraced with tears in both our eyes. It was the tears of brotherhood that was created since the creation of Adam and Eve. I said “Thank you, we are grateful of your support!”

Other members of the Free Sheikh Zakzaky campaign committee were also there. Sheikh AbdulRahman Yola, Dr Shuaibu Musa, Muhammad Ibrahim Gamawa etc were all there. They were happy to see me again since my return for 3 months stay in Iran.

We left the venue with Adeyanju Deji and he insisted he will take us out for Lunch before our meeting. He took us to a Restaurant with good Nigerian Dishes. We all ate. Then we moved to the business of the day.

President Buhari was then on medical tourism in London. Adeyanju Deji suggested that we take the Free Sheikh Zakzaky campaign to his door step in London. One thing President Buhari is scared of is international attention. This wicked mass murderer love to slaughter innocent and defenseless women and children in the Deep land of Zaria and dumped their dead bodies in mass graves at night.

We instantly planned the protest. Adeyanju Deji made contact with some Nigerians who are based in London for their support. They gave their full support. A Free Sheikh Zakzaky protest will be stage in front of the house President Buhari is staying in London from night till mourning for three days. The tyrant will not sleep for wickedly disobeying the judgement of a Nigerian court.

Adeyanju Deji and two members of the Islamic Movement will leave Nigeria for UK to coordinate the protest. He suggested that I should be one of the two. I told him that is not possible as my broken leg has not healed. I asked about Visa? He said the then British Ambassador to Nigeria is his close friend. He said we will contact the BBC to fully cover the protest.

We made a rough estimate that the program will cost 5,000 British Pounds. I promised to make contacts and raised the money within that short period of time. When we are about to depart Adeyanju Deji said the Evil tyrant Buhari will arrest us when he return to Nigeria. I told him that it will be a great honor to share the same prison with him.

And we parted. This was how I first met this Hero of Freedom. A Christian, A true follower of Jesus (as). The fact that he is presently in the dungeon of the wicked mass murderer tyrant Buhari underlined his justice-seeking credentials.

Today (03/01/2019) the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky will honor this Hero for justice. Adeyanju Deji has attended Free Sheikh Zakzaky protest that the Nigerian army shot at the peaceful protesters. He is fearless, a brave Lion.

A Government Spy in the Movement:

A Government Spy in the Movement:

From the Photo the Lady you are seeing with the Nigerian army chief Buratai was a Spy for the Nigerian regime in the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky. Her name is Hajiya Rabi. She hails from Mararraban Jos, Kaduna state. She was one of the Spies planted in the Movement by government for a very long time. At some point, she was one of the closest Aides to the wife of Sheikh Zakzaky. However, she disappeared mysteriously from the Movement shortly before the #ZariaGenocide.

She was a sleeping mole planted by the regime inside the Movement. Those shameless rascals that blocked the road for the Nigerian army chief Buratai were also moles in the Movement. The Buhari regime needed an Alibi to attack the Movement, eliminate the leading lights of the Movement and destroy the Iconic Zaria Husseiniya. Their moles in the Movement gave them the Alibi by blocking the road. None of them was killed and no one charged with road blockade by the Buhari Regime. The brutal and inhuman Zaria genocide was pre-planned with set goals and objectives. It was executed using the foolish pretext of “road blockade”. This underlined the thuggish nature of those that executed the Zaria genocide. When did road blockade lead to the murder of more than one thousand innocent children, women and men?

The Spy, Hajiya Rabi, got millions of Naira from them and she joined politics and contested for a seat in the House of Representatives. She lost in the party primaries after spending huge money. Now she is mostly seen in the company of the Nigerian army chief Buratai and Kaduna state Governor Elrufai.

Last year some youths called one of the members of the #FreeZakZaky campaign committee that they want to see him for an important issue. They introduced themselves but he knew no one of them but because they said the issue is important he asked them to meet him in a neutral venue. When they came they told him that they had secured enough weapons to start eliminating the murderous criminals who executed the Zaria genocide. He asked them who gave them the weapons? They were silent. He asked them who ordered them? They were silent. He told them that government agents gave them those weapons and the same people will come and arrest them, then parade them as terrorists working to kill people for the Movement. He told them that we do not kill people and that they should return those weapons to the person that gave them.

There are many Hajiya Rabis in the Movement. Members of the Islamic Movement should be very careful of these spies and moles of the enemy. They plant them to achieve certain objectives. The murderous terrorists who executed the Zaria genocide had failed and they failed woefully without realizing any of their objectives but they are presently desperate. We should be careful.

Nigerian Shia Traitors are not followers of Imam Khamenei

When the Palestinian Resistance visited Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei yesterday his advice to them was:

“If you #Resist, you will gain victory. As long as #Resistance exists, the decline and perishing process of the Zionist regime will continue.”

When people are face with gross oppression and injustice the only option for the #Free is to Resist the monstrous evil. Never kneel to wicked tyrants and bloodthirsty oppressors.

The Nigerian Shia traitors want us to kneel to wicked mass murderer tyrant Buhari and his murderous gang just because they have guns and bombs to slaughter the innocent.

These shameless traitors and paid mercenaries of The Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman fraudulently claimed that they are followers of the Great Leader #Khamenei. Sayyed Khamenei is a Revolutionary, a soldier on the Battlefield and a true #Husseini.

While these shameless Shia traitors had never organize any protest in Nigeria. They did not condemn the brutal and inhuman #ZariaGenocide. While Nigerian Christians cried and mourned the victims of the Zaria genocide, these shameless Shia traitors celebrated with bloodthirsty Wahhabi barbarians.

Yes, they celebrated and went to the kangaroo Judicial Commission of Inquiry that the Islamic Movement in Nigeria should be banned!

Dear Friends,

Are these commercial Shia followers of Imam Khamenei?

How to Defeat BokoHaram Insurgency

If Nigeria and the West African sub-region want to totally defeat the #BokoHaram insurgency they should invite #Iran, #Russia and #Hezbollah.

These trio defeated the US-created #ISIS terrorism.

Do not invite the West and it Saudi puppets. They created these murderous Wahhabi terrorist groups. They will feign they are helping you but they are with the terrorists.

Russian and Iranian weapons are good and battlefield tasted. Iranian surveillance and armed Drones are among the best in the world. Russian jet fighters and Battle Tanks are among the best in the world. For the Guerilla tactics of BokoHaram you need the Battlefield experience of Hezbollah.

To defeat #BokoHaram insurgency Nigeria must purge the Nigerian army of officers who are moles of BokoHaram. They are wearing military uniforms but they are worst than BokoHaram terrorists.

From experience the Chadian army is better in the fight against BokoHaram than the Nigerian army because their infiltrators are few.

President Buhari who desperately wanted to please US President #Trump went to America and bought out dated jet fighters that Nigeria will receive in 2023! Why not go to Russia and get Mig 29 that Nigeria will receive in few months? More cheaper and reliable. The jet fighters President Buhari ordered are not even of the “F” class.

BokoHaram Better Armed than Nigerian Army:

BokoHaram Better Armed than Nigerian Army:

“Many men don fall, we gat to go house. If Nigerian army is ready they should call us back to fight those idiots, we want to fight but we are not soldiers without adequate weapons.” – A Nigerian Soldier Fleeing the Battlefield (viral Video)

#BokoHaram insurgency is an imperialism concoction to slaughter the innocent, rape women and girls and destroy towns and cities to facilitate looting and plunder of resources. Wahhabism is the ideology used to recruit and mobilize brainwashed Sunni youths to execute this murderous imperialist agenda in the name of Islam. One of the reasons why the savage Saudi regime is closely allied to Western imperialism and global Zionism. #ISIS, #AlQaeda, Shabbab etc all part of the murderous Wahhabi terrorism.

For close to 10 years now of the BokoHaram insurgency the Nigerian government has failed to tell Nigerians who is funding and arming BokoHaram terrorists. They only parade half-staved brainwashed youths as BokoHaram terrorists. These youths can not even afford to feed themselves but they are carrying 50 – Calibre Heavy duty Machine Gun.

President Buhari came with the promise to end the murderous BokoHaram insurgency that has killed more than 50,000 innocent Nigerians, destroyed many towns and cities and displaced more than 3 millions into IDPs and refugees in neighboring countries. During GEJ presidency BokoHaram terrorists once fingered President Buhari as someone they trusted to act as their representative while negotiating with the government. They love him. They trusted him.

The present Nigerian army chief Buratai is notoriously corrupt. This man bought choice properties in Dubai, UAE, with looted BokoHaram funds. This man spearheaded the brutal and inhuman genocide of 1000+ innocent children, women and men in Zaria in December 2015 and wickedly dumped the dead bodies in mass graves at night to bury the evidences. Despite his incompetency and corrupt practices, President Buhari is keeping him because he is extremely loyal to the wicked mass murderer tyrant. The recent #AbujaShiaMassacre is one of his trade mark.

These paid Saudi agents in Nigeria who are notorious in freeing murderous BokoHaram terrorists are also notorious in shooting and bombing Shia civilians. No Nigerian leader gave BokoHaram so much money like President Buhari. Buhari gave BokoHaram terrorists more than 10 million dollars using the fraudulent pretext of ransom payment. Today BokoHaram terrorists are better armed than the Nigerian army. Exactly what this soldier said in this video. BokoHaram terrorists attack with Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) at Matele while the Nigerian army do not have RPG. But when the same Nigerian army attacked the residence of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky in Zaria in December 2015 they came with RPGs and bombed innocent and defenseless women and children.

Dear Friends,
As I always say the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky is not the enemy of the Nigerian army or police. Our enemies are the bloodthirsty Wahhabi barbarians who send the Nigerian army and police to murder innocent civilians. An army should protect and defend civilians. When an army is notorious in killing civilians, burning children alive and burying children in mass graves at night, what is the difference of this army and murderous terrorists?

There is massive corruption going on in the Nigerian army. Massive looting of funds meant to fund BokoHaram insurgency. Obsolete weapons were bought and given to soldiers while BokoHaram terrorists have better weapons. What we hear daily is the massacre of soldiers. Yes, brutal massacre of soldiers in the hands of BokoHaram terrorists! BokoHaram terrorists had destroyed 2 out of 3 battalions in Borno state. Yet President Buhari is still keeping the Nigerian army chief Buratai. There are political office holders and senior officers in the Nigerian army who do not want the insurgency to end because they are making millions of dollars at the expense of innocent Nigerian lives. Filthy blood money!

On a final note, the outburst of this frustrated soldier who risked his life to tell the world the truth should act as a #WakeUp call to Nigerians. President Buhari has failed, failed woefully in all indices of development and progress.

– سيطرت خلال الستينيات والسبعينيات من القرن الماضي نظرية عنوانها قوة لبنان في ضعفه على السياسة الرسمية للدولة اللبنانية ومؤسساتها، وكان جوهرها يقول إن أي مصادر قوة للبنان ستجعله هدفاً للعدوان الإسرائيلي أسوة بحال الدول العربية الأخرى، وكان ذلك مخالفاً بالطبع لتحذيرات أطلقها من يمكن تسميتهم بفلاسفة لبنان الاستقلال من أمثال شارل مالك وميشال شيحا، من كون الخطر الإسرائيلي نابعاً من الأطماع بمياه لبنان ودوره الاقتصادي، وكانت النتيجة التي يعرفها الجميع بوقوع أغلب الأراضي اللبنانية تحت الاحتلال عام 1982، بعد سلسلة اعتداءات بدأت على نهر الوزاني عام 1964 ومطار بيروت عام 1968 قبل أن يكون في لبنان أي سلاح يتحدى السيطرة الإسرائيلية، وبقي الاحتلال لأكثر من عشرين عاماً رغم زوال السلاح الذي تذرعت به إسرائيل لشن عدوانها، وخلال الفترة الممتدة بين العدوان الأول ونهاية الاحتلال سقطت نظرية قوة لبنان في ضعفه سقوطاً مدوياً، حيث كان يقوم شقها الثاني على اعتبار العلاقات الدولية للبنان كفيلة برد الخطر الإسرائيلي عنه، فبقي القرار 425 معلقاً بلا تنفيذ حتى نجحت مقاومة الشعب اللبناني الممتدة منذ عام 1982 والتي نظّمتها وقادتها الأحزاب اللبنانية المنبوذة والملاحقة من دولتها، مثبتة مقولة معاكسة قوامها قوة لبنان بمقاومته ووحدة شعبه ، وصولاً للمعادلة الذهبية التي ظهرت بقوة مع التصدي لعدوان تموز 2008 بصيغة الشعب والجيش والمقاومة .

– اليوم رغم الخطاب السياسي لبعض القوى المناوئة لخيار المقاومة، الداعي لمناقشة وضع سلاحها ومستقبله، لا يوجد منطق لدى أصحاب هذا الخطاب يستطيع إعادة إنتاج نظرية قوة لبنان في ضعفه. فسقف ما يتحدث عنه هؤلاء هو أن الجيش اللبناني قادر على صد أي عدوان أو أن ضمّ سلاح المقاومة لمقدرات الجيش سيجعله قادراً على ذلك، ما يعني أن السقوط النهائي لنظرية قوة لبنان في ضعفه، وبقاء تردّداتها ضمن دائرة اللعب السياسي لإضعاف المقاومة لحساب معادلات خارجية يمثلها أصحاب الخطاب العدائي للمقاومة، إلا أن أحداً في الدولة ومؤسساتها لم يعد يجرؤ على التحدث عن قوة لبنان في ضعفه، بل لم يعد أحد يجرؤ على الحديث عن قوة للبنان بلا المقاومة، ولو من خلال الرد على التحديات التي تمثلها التهديدات الإسرائيلية، أو من خلال رفض اعتبار سلاح المقاومة مصدراً للخطر على لبنان، أو على الأقل اعتباره شأناً يمكن التعايش معه على قاعدة ما يسمونه بربط النزاع.

– لا ينتبه الكثير من اللبنانيين إلى خطورة الانزلاق لمظهر جديد لنظرية قوة لبنان في ضعفه، مبني على وهم فرضية أن يكون لبنان قوياً إذا كان ضعيفاً في تماسك نسيجه الداخلي، أو إمكانية أن يصير لبنان قوياً إذا ضعفت الدولة أمام الطوائف والتشكيلات والحسابات الطائفية، فلبنان القوي والجمهورية القوية، مرادفان لقوة الدولة قياساً بقوة الطوائف واستقواء كياناتها السياسية على الدولة، والثابت من عمر لبنان السياسي أن طريق بناء الدولة القوية لا يمكن أن يمر إلا على حساب إضعاف حضور الطوائف وكياناتها السياسية الذي ينهش من هيبة الدولة ويأكل خيراتها، ويحولها هيكلاً شكلياً لتساكن بارد أحياناً وحار أحياناً أخرى ومشتعل بحرب أهلية أحياناً ثالثة، بين دويلات غير معلنة أو شبه معلنة أو معلنة أحياناً، والدستور في أي دولة هو خريطة طريق لقوتها، وقد قام دستور ما بعد الطائف على معادلة تقوية الدولة تدريجياً على حساب الانقسام الطائفي الموروث من الحرب الأهلية، وصولاً لإلغاء الطائفية كهدف نهائي رسمه الدستور، ولم يف بتحقيقه المؤتمنون على هذا الدستور بعد، بوضع الآلية التنفيذية التي نصت عليها المادة 95 من الدستور قيد التنفيذ، وخارج الدستور لا دولة قوية، وبتنمية العصبيات الطائفية لا دولة قوية، وبتقاسم وظائف الدولة وخيراتها على اساس طائفي لا قيام للبنان قوي. والأهم بقانون انتخابات يعيد إنتاج الحياة السياسية على أساس مفرط في الطائفية، تضعف الدولة ويضعف لبنان وتتجه الجمهورية نحو السقوط، لأن البديل الذي ينمو في رحمها، هو دويلات وجمهوريات، ومرادف إدارة الظهر للدستور، وتجاهل روحه وجوهره ونصوصه الواضحة، بداية تآكل مشروع الدولة وانهيارها، أليس هذا ما نحن فيه اليوم؟

– المأزق الحكومي ولو تم تجاوزه بتسوية، كشف ما لم يعد ممكناً ستره حول ما أنجبه قانون الانتخابات النيابية الذي لم يحترم المادتين 22 و95 من الدستور، رغم مرور قرابة ثلاثين عاماً على وضع هذا الدستور، وبالمناسبة ليس هناك بلد في العالم غير لبنان يتحدث دستوره عن موجبات ملزمة لاحقة بقيت لاحقة ومؤقتة تنتظر من ينفذها ولم تنفذ. وجاء قانون الانتخابات ليكشف عبر المأزق الحكومي حجم الاستيقاظ الطائفي الذي ينهش الدولة، ونوع القضايا التي تحكم تشكيل الحكومات، بحيث لن تكون أي حكومة ينتجها هذا القانون الانتخابي إلا حكومة تصريف أعمال بأحسن الأحوال، ومنصة لفض النزاعات الطائفية حول المحاصصة، والاعتماد على المزيد من الديون في تحريك الاقتصاد، فاللا دولة تفليسة غير معلنة، والاقتصاد الوطني مشروط بوجود دولة، تضعف فرص وجودها يوماً فيوم، فيكفي لها أن تكون قوية لتنهض بالاقتصاد، وكيف لوعد مكافحة الفساد أن يتحقق وللفساد محميات طائفية ممنوع الاقتراب منها، والتوظيف في الدولة من أعلى مراتب الوظيفة إلى أدناها يقوم على الولاء للطائفة وزعيم الطائفة وحزب الطائفة ومحازبي الطائفة، وعلى حساب الولاء للدولة ومؤسسات الدولة ومواطني الدولة، وكيف لدولة أن تنتظر من مواطن تعامله كزبون يمر عبر وكالة حصرية طائفية، أن يعاملها كمرجع وهي تتهرّب من طبابته وتعليمه وإسكانه وتوفير الخدمات له كمواطن. والمواطنة مصطلح غائب عن الحياة السياسية، ومساواة المواطنين أمام القانون نص في الدستور لكنه مهمل لحساب نص مضمر، اللبنانيون طوائف متساوية في الحق بعائدات الدولة ووظائفها .

– ألفباء لبنان القوي، والجمهورية القوية، هي الدولة القوية، وإذا كانت قوة الأطراف اللبنانية هي قوة البعض بوجه البعض الآخر، تبدأ بقياس عدد النواب والوزراء وتنتهي بما لا تحمد عقباه على حساب الوطن والدولة، والاستقواء استعداد مضمر لحرب أهلية وإلا لماذا يستقوي بعضنا على بعض، إلا أن قوة الدولة تقاس بدرجة قوتها ككائن مستقل على جميع الأطراف حكماً، وهي لم تكن يوماً ولن تكون بمجموع قوتهم منفردين فقوتهم مأخوذة من قوتها بالأساس. والدولة القوية لها خريطة طريق هي السير نحو دولة المواطنة. فقوة لبنان ليست في ضعفه، لأن النسيج الاجتماعي الهش ينتج حرباً أهلية وفي أحسن الأحوال فدرالية دويلات، لكنه لا ينتج دولة قوية، والنسيج الاجتماعي المتماسك شرطه الواجب المواطنة، والدستور هو وثيقة الوفاق الوطني وهو المرجع الحاكم لبناء الدولة، والعقد الاجتماعي المتاح للانطلاق منه نحو الأفضل، والأمر بات وجودياً، فهل علينا أن ننتظر اختبار قوة لبنان في ضعفه داخلياً بكارثة تشبه كارثة الاحتلال التي جلبتها نظرية قوة لبنان في ضعفه خارجياً، حتى نستدير نحو مصدر القوة الحقيقي بالخروج من كهوف العصبيات إلى رحاب الوطن؟

– يحب اللبنانيون أن يسمعوا خطاباً عن حقوق اللبنانيين بدلاً من أن تصم آذانهم بخطاب يتحدث عن حقوق المسلمين وحقوق المسيحيين.

فخامة الرئيس… المطلوب تغيير اتجاه دفة الدولة… منعاً للانهيار والانتحار

ديسمبر 31, 2018

ناصر قنديل

– أتوجّه إليك فخامة الرئيس بهذه الرسالة التي تعبر عما يختلج نفوس الكثيرين من الذين آمنوا بصدق مسعاك لبناء دولة مدنية والسير بخطى حثيثة لإصلاح نظامنا الفاسد، ووثقوا بأنك فرصة ربما لن تتكرر بسهولة لتكون لنا دولة قوية قادرة، ودولة مؤسسات وقانون يتساوى فيهما الناس في الحقوق الواجبات، ومجتمع يتعافى من العصبيات ويتماسك في ظل هوية وطنية تتعاظم مكانتها في نفوس أبنائه، وتتعزّز وحدته الوطنية، ورسموا في ذهنهم صورة عما سيكون مع رئاستكم للدولة من إخراج لاتفاق الطائف من كونه إطاراً للمحاصصات الطائفية ليتحوّل خريطة طريق نحو بناء الدولة، وفقاً لما نصّ عليه من سعي لإلغاء الطائفية، وإعادة صياغة دور لبنان في المنطقة انطلاقاً من علاقة لبنانية سورية تتخطى كل الأمراض والعقد والتلاعب السياسي والمصلحي، لكون هذه العلاقة وفقاً لاتفاق الوفاق الوطني في الطائف الركن الأساس في هوية لبنان العربية، ولكون المصالح الاقتصادية اللبنانية تبدأ وتنتهي عند الإجابة عن سؤال ماهية العلاقة بالعمق الجغرافي الذي تمثله سورية، وحجم وعود إعادة الإعمار فيها، وموقعها المفصلي جغرافيا كرئة يتنفس عبرها الاقتصاد اللبناني، عدا عن الحاجة الملحّة في حلول شاملة ونوعية لملف النازحين لا تفي به إلا بعلاقة متعافية بين لبنان وسورية.

– ها نحن فخامة الرئيس، أمام استحقاقين يتجمّعان معاً يطال كل واحد منهما كشف حساب حول عنوان من عنوانَيْ بناء الدولة والعلاقة اللبنانية السورية. وفي كليهما نشعر أن بلدنا يسير بالاتجاه العكسي لما كانت عليه آمالنا وتطلعاتنا ووعد وصولكم إلى رئاسة الجمهورية، وليس سواكم من يستطيع تصويب المسار، بعدما اختبرتم الفرضيات التي ظننتم أنها تصون لبنان، وتحقق استقراره وتقدمه نحو مشروع الدولة، وتضع العلاقة بين لبنان وسورية حيث يجب أن تكون، والقضية بالتأكيد ليست شأناً تقنياً في العنوانين، بل فعل ثقافة وسياسة وتوجهات ورسم خريطة أولويات، فخلال سنتين من عهدكم كان الجهد على إنتاج قانون للانتخابات النيابية أعقبته الانتخابات ومساعي تشكيل الحكومة، وكانت إدارة للعلاقة مع سورية تتظلّل ما سُمّي بخيار النأي بالنفس، وخير طريقة للحكم على صواب الخيار من عدمه هو ما حصدناه. وها هو المشهد الذي نراه مع مسار ولادة الحكومة يكفي للحكم على ما حصدناه في مسار بناء الدولة، بالفشل والخيبة والتراجع، حيث العصبيات أشدّ حضوراً من الوطنية بأضعاف، والمحاصصات أكثر فجوراً وفكرة الدولة يُصيبها الضعف والإضعاف، والناس من يأس إلى مرارة فوق مرارة تضاف. وفي الاستحقاق الثاني، نحن على أبواب القمة الاقتصادية العربية في بيروت، والعرب يتسابقون إلى دمشق، ودمشق غائبة عن بيروت، وبيروت غائبة عن دمشق، وفي الغياب يسقط النأي بالنفس لينضم لبنان إلى عرب بلا سورية، ويكون آخر وأسوأ لحظات التعبير عن القطيعة العربية لسورية، التي التزم لبنان بالنأي عنها، وها هو يستعدّ ليصير عنوانها، والعرب يستعدّون لإنهائها، ولبنان الاقتصاد غائب في القمة الاقتصادية، فماذا عساه يشتري وماذا عساه يبيع بدون علاقته بسورية، فالعناوين المقرّرة عن فتح الأسواق والربط الكهربائي والانفتاح على الفرص المقبلة، كلها تترجم بالنسبة للبنان بكلمة واحدة هي سورية.

– فخامة الرئيس، إن الكلام الصادق وحده ما يحتاجه نجاح العهد وما تحتاجه قيامة الوطن، ومن قلب صادق وعقل حريص، لا يبدو للحظة أن خيار قانون الانتخابات المبني على معادلة الاستنخاب الطائفي بفرضية الجمع بين تحسين التمثيل الوطني والتمثيل الطائفي كان خياراً موفقاً، فقد نهش القانون نفوس الناس وأضعف حسها الوطني وأيقظ العصبيات النائمة وشحذ اليقظة منها بمصادر القوة، وشقّ الطريق الواضح نحو فدرالية تنتظر الفرصة لتطل برأسها، فتحوّلت الطوائف إلى إقطاعيات يتقاسم تمثيلها قادة يفرح الطائفيون منهم بما حازوه، ويتأقلم الوطنيون منهم مع الطائفيات التي لا بقاء لهم دون الخضوع لمقتضياتها، وغاب كل حساب للهوية الوطنية والمصلحة الوطنية والحسابات الوطنية، وتهمش كل مؤمن بالوطن العابر للطوائف وازداد إحساسه بالغربة، وكأننا اليوم عشية النقاش حول اتفاق الطائف، نرتضي الفدرالية التي بني الطائف كله على السعي لدفنها، ونهض على روح عنوانها إسقاط خطر التقسيم وكل أنواع الفدرالية والتمسك ببديل واضح هو السير نحو إلغاء الطائفية، هذا بدلاً من أن نكون ونحن نتنافس ونتبارى بالحديث عن الطائف نضع روحه سقفاً ممنوع تخطيها أو تجاوزها، فكيف بنا نطعنها في الصميم.

– فخامة الرئيس، كيف يستقيم السعي لتنقية العلاقات اللبنانية السورية وإعادة صياغتها على أسس تحقق المصالح المشتركة ويسودها الاحترام المتبادل، وتجسّد مفهوم الأخوة والتعاون والتنسيق الذي شكل ركناً رئيسياً في اتفاق الطائف، وكل يوم يخرج مسؤول في الدولة يتبجّح بالعداء لسورية والتطاول على رموزها ورئيسها، وتربط الدولة كلها توقيت علاقاتها الطبيعية بسورية، بساعة الذين ناصبوها العداء، ونحن ندرك أن رهان الآخرين يسقط ورهانكم على قيامة سورية ينتصر، فكيف يستقيم أن يحكم لبنان رهان المهزومين، وأن يتحكّم هذا الرهان الخاسر بمصالح اللبنانيين الحيوية المتعلقة باستثمار لبنان لعلاقة مميزة مع سورية، في تطوير حياته الاقتصادية وحل قضية النازحين، وإرساء قواعد تبادل الفرص والمنافع، وكيف يستقيم أن ينعقد في لبنان آخر مؤتمر قمة عربية تغيب عنه سورية، مراعاة لداخل مريض أو خارج بغيض، أو حساباً لمصالح الآخرين على حساب مصلحة لبنان.

– اضرب بيدك على الطاولة يا فخامة الرئيس منعاً للانهيار ووقفاً للانتحار، فها نحن نخسر آخر ما تبقى لنا من رصيد هوية وطنية في الداخل، وهوية عربية في الخارج، وليس للهوية العربية من تجسيد وفقاً لاتفاق الطائف إلا العلاقة المميزة بسورية، وليس للهوية الوطنية من مقياس إلا التقدم نحو إلغاء الطائفية، والطريق واضح ويشبه الصلابة التي تجسّدونها، وفيه مفهوم الرئيس القوي، القوي بالموقف، والقوي بتلبية طموحات شعبه، ولك بين اللبنانيين الكثيرين الذين سيقفون خلفك عندما تقدّم، والمطلوب موقف وللموقف عنوان، إن لبنان سيوجّه الدعوة للرئيس السوري لحضور القمة وليرضَ مَن يرضى ويغضب من يغضب، ويشارك مَن يشارك ويقاطع مَن يقاطع، وعلى ضفة موازية تماماً، موقف لا يقل صلابة، أن الدولة اللبنانية لن تسير نحو الفدرالية، وقانون الانتخاب المريض يجب أن يسقط ومعه تسقط كل ثقافة المحاصصة، وها نحن ذاهبون إلى قانون انتخاب نصّت على مضمونه المادة 22 من الدستور بمجلس نيابي خارج القيد الطائفي معه يمكن تطبيق التمثيل النسبي واللوائح الحزبية في لبنان دائرة واحدة، ومجلس للشيوخ تتمثل فيه الطوائف ويقدّم الضمانات لطمأنة الهواجس الطائفية المشروعة فقط.

– فخامة الرئيس، أنتم الأعلم أن الموقف سلاح، وأن رسالة تحمل توقيعكم كرئيس للقمة الاقتصادية العربية تتوجّه للملوك والأمراء والرؤساء العرب تعلن عزمكم على دعوة رئيس الجمهورية العربية السورية لكل الأسباب العربية واللبنانية، إلى القمة العربية الاقتصادية في بيروت، ستنقل لبنان من موقع الملعب المفتوح للاعبين الآخرين إلى اللاعب الذي يدير قواعد المرحلة العربية الجديدة ويصون مصالح لبنان، وأن رسالة موازية للقادة اللبنانيين المشاركين في هيئة الحوار الوطني برئاستكم، تقول إن مسار التآكل والإنهيار يجب أن يتوقف وأن المطلوب تطبيق بنود اتفاق الطائف الإصلاحية والسير قدما بقانون انتخاب يستوحيها ويلتزم معاييرها، وبناء عليه تتم الدعوة لانعقاد هيئة الحوار لمناقشة الانسداد السياسي، كنتيجة للخراب الوطني الناتج عما جلبناه من تعاظم الحال الطائفية، وجعل البحث في المسار الحكومي ترجمة لهذا التوجّه وتلبية لاحتياجاته ومقتضياته، هذه خريطة طريق وحيدة نحتاجها، وتعيد رسم الأمل في السواد المقيم، ووحدها ستشكل الباب لوقف حال الإحباط والخيبة التي يعيشها اللبنانيون وتخيم على النخب الحاضرة للوقوف وراءكم كرمز لمشروع بناء الدولة عندما تقدمون وأنتم أهل العزم، وعلى قدر أهل العزم تأتي العزائم.

The Saudi Regime, Murderous Wahhabism Failing on All Front

 

elbinawi.wordpress.com

The savage Saudi regime and its murderous Wahhabi ideology failing on all fronts. The international posture of this bloodthirsty Wahhabi regime is in tatters after the Khashoggi Murder. Even their closest Western allies are keeping a distance from them. Only the US President Trump remain embracing them. The Khashoggi affair solidify the evilness of this bloodthirsty Wahhabi regime that is presently occupying the two most Holy sites of Islam.

In Yemen, they are being disgraced and humiliated by the brave and courageous Yemeni Resistance. The Sudanese are threatening to withdraw their soldiers from the Saudi coalition. The Yemeni Resistance is stronger than ever before. They now manufacture all kinds of arms and weapons. The US and UK regimes are hypocritically showing concern for the mass starvation in Yemen. Without Saudi bombings and blockade this catastrophe will not occur.

In Nigeria, though Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, his injured wife and hundreds of members of the Islamic Movement are still in illegal detention but the Islamic Movement is waxing stronger with more membership and popular acceptance by Nigerians.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and his gang of wicked mass murderers are on the retreat. They are confused and are now spending sleepless nights that if they lose power in the February 2019 elections they will end up in ICC jail for the heinous crimes against humanity they perpetrated in Zaria. Their mass graves has failed to bury the brutal and inhuman Zaria Genocide.

In Bahrain, the Saudi-backed tyrannical regime is on the defensive. The resistance of the oppressed people of Bahrain is consistent. Though with most of it leaders in the dungeons of the Western-backed regime, the opposition is stronger today with more international acceptance. The fall of this tyrannical regime is just a matter of time. Victory is with the oppressed.

In Syria, US President Trump surprisingly announced the withdrawal of all US troops from Syria. He did this due to the successes of the Syrian government and its allies against the murderous terrorists created by the West. The US imperialism is on the retreat in the Middle East. The Evil Empire is breathing it last days. No Empire last forever.

In Iraq, the Daesh [Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL’ group] terrorism is totally defeated in Iraq and the US – Saudi regime plot to sow discord and distance the Iraqi government from Iran has woefully failed. Iraq is rebuilding and terrorist attacks has drastically reduce. The people of Iraq should unite and build a strong and prosperous Iraq. The “Israeli”-backed plot of Kurdish independence in Iraq is now history. Dead and buried!

In occupied Palestine, the weekly Friday peaceful Great Return Protest continue despite “Israeli” attacks on the peaceful protesters. The Palestinian Resistance forces are stronger today and united. The fraudulent “Deal of the century” of US President Trump is dead on arrival and will not even be considered by the Palestinians. Al-Quds is the eternal capital of Palestine and one million Trumps cannot change this. The Zionist regime is a Cancerous tumor that is the source of all conflicts in the Middle East.

On a final note, we oppose Western imperialism as we will not accept that a few people control the world and it resources. All humanity have the right for a decent living and right to control their destiny. The notion that some lives are more superior to some is a fraudulent Imperialism creation to facilitate their looting of the resources of other nation. They also induce inferiority complex to facilitate looting and plunder of resources. We reject inferiority complex as much as we reject superiority complex.

Khashoggi Part 2: A ‘reformer’…who was also a hysterical anti-Iran/Shia warmonger?

November 19, 2018

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker BlogKhashoggi Part 2: A ‘reformer’…who was also a hysterical anti-Iran/Shia warmonger?

I wouldn’t want readers to think that I egotistically view Jamal Khashoggi’s anti-Iran stance as his most important flaw….

Part two in this 4-part series only focuses on Iran because they provide a distinct counterpart to “Khashoggi Thought”: By laying out the differences between these two we can see how Khashoggi relates to the Middle Eastern world; then in Part 3 we can see how Khashoggi relates to the larger Islamic World; and in Part 4 we can analyze Khashoggi’s intellectual relation to the West, China and the entire world. Hey – since 1979 hysterical anti-Iran warmongers have been a dime a dozen! We’re just expanding outward concentrically.

One of Khashoggi’s favourite journalistic topics was Iran, which everyone will agree is the Muslim country that has mostly successfully rebelled against the Western model and the West’s dictates. Those who know some of the details of the Iranian system will agree that Iran is also the Muslim country which has burst through the furthest into political modernity.

These are the very reasons why Khashoggi called Iran “our Great Satan”. He repeatedly wrote that the JCPOA agreement on Iran’s nuclear energy program is a “war project” and not a peace project, in clear contradiction with the vast majority of global public opinion.

He viewed Iran as the biggest threat to his own happiness and to Saudi Arabia’s happiness, and so he fanatically wrote article after article to cobble together a war coalition. This article examines the question: What compelled Jamal Khashoggi to be such a horrific warmonger?

Khashoggi can rest in peace – he got some wars started, at least

From a 2016 column (fanatically) titled, You are either with us, or against us:

“Our neighboring friends say they do not want a sectarian conflict. It is too late; we have all been pushed against our will into this conflict by Iran, which might not be speaking in a sectarian way but is acting as such.”

The claim that Iran is “sectarian” is absolutely false and easily disproven: Palestinians are Sunni and not Shia. Need more? Fine: As far away as the leftist Polisario Front in the Western Sahara Iran is supporting Sunnis, even though monarchical Morocco cut ties for that reason (at least officially). This is an argument does not withstand the barest scrutiny.

I dispel such nonsense to show Khashoggi’s own, real view:

“Therefore, today’s confrontation is not between Sunnis and Shiites, but between Shiite fundamentalism (he is referring to Iran) and Sunni fundamentalism represented by ISIS.”

The only people making such a preposterously false equivalence between Iran and ISIS are located in Riyadh, Israel, Washington, New York and in mosques where the preachers have trained by radical Saudi Arabians. Would ISIS have a constitution, women in parliament, and high voter turnout? LOL, of course not – the two are absolutely not comparable. However, if you want to get a job with The Washington Post you had better write a ton of copy claiming that they are.

Khashoggi’s dishonest claim that he himself was not a sectarian is contradicted by the fact that – in clear contrast with Iran’s foreign policy – Khashoggi openly opposed every Shia movement in any Middle Eastern country: he supported the war in Syria 100%, hated Hezbollah as much as any Israeli, and only stopped openly supporting the war on Yemen after he moved to The Washington Post.

Lede sentence from a pre-“WaPo” 2016 article titled, Saudi constance in its Yemen policy:

Operation Decisive Storm will emerge victorious because its demands are simple, moral, and supported locally, regionally and internationally.”

Our first question is: who is this “Constance” he refers to and how did she get such influence in Saudi foreign policy on Yemen? I have heard of “constancy”, but apparently ole Saudi Connie was deluded into thinking that forcing the greatest famine in modern history on Yemen was “moral”.

Errors from Al-Arabiya’s editors aside, the reality is that Khashoggi viewed any demand by Shia for democracy as “Shiite fundamentalists”.

How many “reformers” or “dissidents” are warmongers at the same time? Check Part 1 for an explanation of what type of thinker in the Muslim world does and does not deserve those monikers.

Modern Iran, like all socialism, is a social experiment which was long-repressed

The problem with Khashoggi’s obsessive anti-Iranian warmongering (apart from all the obvious problems, of course) is that revolutions are not made by powers or individuals, but solely by ideas.

Like the results or not, I think any objective analysis will agree that the idea behind the Iranian Islamic Revolution was, most simply, “modern Muslim democracy”.

But to the average Westerner “modern Muslim democracy” is an extremist idea; to the average Western leftist or intellectual it is an impossible contradiction; to Arab monarchs it is a terrifying threat to their elite status; to the Muslim People, this is exactly what has been repressed by all of the above for two centuries (and then the Muslim People are accused of being intrinsically anti-democratic!).

But, after toppling the Shah, and unencumbered by a legacy of colonialism like in Algeria, and also not seeking to deny a Muslim electoral victory as Algeria did in the 1990s, Iran did implement Muslim democracy more than any major Muslim nation in history. What resulted from this Muslim democracy is what I often refer to as “Iranian Islamic Socialism”.

But this revolutionary idea was not at all unique to Iran in the Muslim world, and that is something which Khashoggi himself recognized and feared. From a 2016 column titled Iran’s Regional Project:

“The leaders of Yemen’s Houthis, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Iraq’s Dawa party and Bahrain’s Al-Wefaq party seek to implement their sectarian fundamentalist project in order to spread Iran’s influence beyond its borders. Those leaders consider Iran a cosmopolitan system rather than a state with defined boundaries. They have pledged unconditional allegiance, waging war and declaring peace on Tehran’s orders without taking into account the interests of their states. They do not consider Bahrain, Lebanon, Syria or Iraq as countries.”

Therein lies Khashoggi’s fundamental error: especially given that Iranian patriotism was the single-most important spark to their revolution (and not something openly internationalist, like socialism in 1917 Russia), Iran is not really a “cosmopolitan system”. However, “Muslim democracy” definitely is; “Islamic socialism” definitely is.

Houthis, Iraqis and Bahrainis are not seeking to create some sort of new “Shia Caliphate/superstate”, nor make Farsi their new official language, nor throw out their cultures for the modern Iranian one – they would certainly resist such efforts violently. Due to his 18th-century-based political beliefs – what I define as “Salafist Liberal Democracy” in the next part of this series – Khashoggi cannot grasp this.

Yet the truth couldn’t be more obvious: What those parties – all murderously repressed – truly seek is democratic representation within policy-making. Such policy-making would inevitably be, I predict, Islamic socialist, but they would certainly not be “policies-to-benefit-Iranians”.

That is why Baathist (Arab nationalist/supremacist, secular, socialist) turned tyrant Saddam Hussein banned and massacred the Dawa Party in 1979…which only pushed back their (inevitable) democratic victory until 2005. That is why Yemen is in the midst of the latest iteration of its civil war for democracy and against monarchy, and via a Houthi movement which is republican and which also includes Sunnis (contradicting the constant Western media description of them as “sectarian”). That is why Bahrain’s poor – dominated by Shia, who live under the discriminatory and Riyadh-allied monarchy – want at least one valuable commodity: the ability to vote their conscience so that modern, democratic policy-making can finally begin.

Furthermore, against the idea of Iranian cosmopolitanism is the fact that anti-Arab feeling in Iran can be disgustingly strong – they were the invaders, after all. Iranian patriots (but especially Iranian jingoists) would love to talk to you for 2,500 years about the 2,500 years of rather distinct (but not too distinct…) Persian culture. Iranians honor and adore Imam Zayn al-Abidin – the originator of the Islamic sect of Zaidism – but he took firmest root in Yemen. Is “cosmopolitan” Iran going to uproot Yemenites’ 11-century long love for Imam Zayn and force them to publicly prefer Imams Ali & Hussain, the ubiquitous religious figures of Iran? That idea is impossibly absurd and would only lead to war.

Modern Iranians are much like modern Chinese – not inclined to imperialism following much Western humiliation and repression; maybe in a century that changes (devolves, becomes reactionary, etc.) but it’s just not true in 2018. However, both are inclined to defend their neighbors, cultural kin and distant cousins when attacked, which is not at all “imperialism”.

Iran-obsessing is only to repress intellectual & democratic debate

Despite all these core-rooted differences Iran has with other “Shia nations”, Khashoggi concludes:

The crises in Yemen, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq should be linked and dealt with as one Iranian project that threatens all our cultural and political components, and our vision for the future. This project poses a serious threat to our region, and should be seriously confronted with a unified project before it is too late.

For Khashoggi “Muslim democracy” has been transformed into “one Iranian project” – very flattering to Iranians, but a false exaggeration.

Iran’s “project” was to liberate themselves from Western meddling and to democratically discuss and create a new society. What they decided was to: end monarchy, reject 18th century-based liberal democracy, not attempt a phony bourgeois Muslim liberal democracy, and to instead create what is accurately termed “Iranian Islamic socialism”.

However, all of that absolutely does threaten the monarchism, elitism and power-hoarding “vision for the future” which Khashoggi supports!

Khashoggi wanted the Saudi Arabian power structure to remain fundamentally unchanged – he merely preferred a different prince than current Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman. Just ask his sons: “Jamal was never a dissident.”

Let’s define another key Khashoggi’s fear, which is the unique historical choice Muslims face in 2018: between monarchy and republican theocracy. It is a unique choice because – excepting a few islands in the Caribbean – it is only Europeans who still promotes monarchy, and they certainly appear to democratically reject theocracy.

Iran was not the first nation to prove that a monarchy is totally incompatible with socialism, but they were indeed the first to prove that in the Muslim world. That’s no small potatoes in a region full of kings….

More crucially, though, is this: Iran was the first to prove was that theocracy is not totally incompatible with socialism – this is Iran’s most radical contribution to modern history.

This is why Iran is such an electrifying, polarising example in the resolutely-religious Muslim World. It is also why those opposed to the political & economic democratic dictates of socialism, and those pushing capitalism, imperialism and monarchy – like Khashoggi – are trying so hard to destroy Iran.

What is certain is that Liberal Democracy is not compatible with socialism: Socialist Democracy is fundamentally different in structure, motivation and application, and the West will continue to totally oppose Socialist Democracy wherever it is found.

Khashoggi’s ‘cry of a Saudi prince’ in 2018: “I am not king….waahh waaahh!”

The reality is that Khashoggi himself admired and envied the Iranian Revolution. What did Khashoggi want to emulate? From his columnThe Alienation of the Saudi Legacy:

“I consider it the second most important book to tackle the crisis of Saudi identity and alienation after Egyptian researcher and journalist Mohammed Jalal Kishk’s book “The Saudis and the Islamic Solution.”

This book was published more than 30 years ago, when the question of an Islamic solution emerged with the return of political Islam and the victory of its sectarian version in Iran. It is time to put this book back on school shelves, so the current generation learns and feels proud…” blah blah petty nationalism blah blah Saudis are the best blah blah.

Per Khashoggi, he wants an Islamic solution to be promoted and to be a “victory”- like in Iran – only he wants a Saudi version.

First, an aside: the problem is that a just society according to Kishk was staunchly, resolutely anti-leftist. Khashoggi, like seemingly all Westerners, completely misses the socialist aspects of the “victory of the sectarian version” in Iran. Iran’s solution was both Islamic and modern; the latter is proven by its rejection of antiquated monarchy and the implementation of democratic structures, and Islamic because many of its rules which were inspired by Islamic knowledge. (That Iran’s government is not based on “religion” but based on “religious knowledge” is literally the first piece of ignorance I sought to overturn in my recent 11-part series on modern Iran.)

Many Muslims will say today that Khashoggi’s proposed monarchist, anti-socialist, sectarian and jingoist solution is not at all Islamic, but let’s play along anyway:

One cannot be both “modern politically” and a “monarchist”. Whoever heard of a socialist king? Now that is an impossibility. The only place you would hear such fake leftism is from Europe, Canada or Australia. Khashoggi reveals this contradictory absurdity when he refers back to the second-most important book, written by Saudi Prince (shocker, eh?) Turki bin Abdullah bin Abdulrahman:

“The book comes as an outcry from a Saudi prince…” stop right there Jamal: the worker of 2018 cares not for the “outcry” of any prince!

Neo-imperialist Europe may disagree with that, but any empowered, educated worker knows that there can be no princes in 2018 – to maintain doing so (or to return to doing so, perish the thought!) is what is accurately called “reactionary” in 2018. For God’s sake, even a devilish, bourgeois banker in New York City or Paris has enough political modernity (republicanism: popular sovereignty, instead of the sovereignty of a monarch) to know that!

But I have not the power to stop Khashoggi, because he has all the powerful allies while Iranian Islamic Socialists and Muslim Democrats have only the lower classes. He continues:

“The book comes as an outcry from a Saudi prince calling for an awakening that revives what was inherited from our grandparents…” again I wrest control!

What I inherited from my two grandfathers appears limited to the shape of my hands and legs, the desire to respond to silly questions with silly answers, and the monetary fortune left over from a 95 year-old’s modest pension… after being divided with at least 10 other people. Contrarily, Khashoggi inherited more money than he could spend and the keys to the kingdom’s journalism! Thus, it is no wonder he espouses a reactionary, backwards-facing view…there is a reason most revolutions are started by the “barefooted”, as in Iran.

Instead of having a revolution to depose the anti-democratic, damned monarchy, Khashoggi – like all modern right-wingers from Europe to the US to Brazil and beyond – can only offer the dying light of the past as a beacon. It is mere nationalism – an ethos which was “modern” in 1848.

Contrarily, plumbing only the past for answers is the opposite of socialism, which demands that the People be empowered in their daily work to excitingly construct and maintain a new society where everyone can finally reach their full potential.

Khashoggi illustrates what Muslims have been fighting against ever since the Industrial Revolution proved to workers what their unified power could produce: Western-backed monarchists who fear the democratic judgment of their own people.

Nationalism produces racism but patriotism does not. No surprise Khashoggi pushed ‘Saudization’

Patriotism is what we are striving for, but Khashoggi reminds us that “patriotism” must necessarily be combined with something larger than just a “love for our land and our past”. Twenty-first century modernity simply must be combined with a multicultural ethos due to absolutely everyone’s recent history of immigration (which only excepts Japan, the Koreas, Tunisia (they were all trying to get into Ghadaffi’s Libya) and Yemen among major countries).

This why the West truly has no idea what patriotism truly is: they mistakenly think “patriotism” includes jingoism, racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia.

Iran is a “cosmopolitan” system only in the sense that it speaks this long-suppressed but still vibrant anti-sectarian, leftist language both within and beyond its borders. Khashoggi constantly distorted this reality and told his readers that all Shia are “tools of Iran”, and that they cannot be trusted as citizens across the Middle East. All Shia have apparently renounced their nationalities and have no heart at all for their surroundings nor those in them…but this is all untrue.

Untrue, but normal to Western ears: this is undoubtedly exactly what is said in the centre and left across the West – “Shia” must simply be replaced with “Mexicans” or “Muslims” or “Roma” as needed.

This is scapegoating and racism, and verboten in socialism; China, Iran and Cuba have NONE of these “identity” problems. “Our country is losing its identity” is only a pathetic problem for those nations not inspired by socialism; socialist nations are making a new identity, and it is patriotic (inclusive of all within its borders). This short section is, sadly, necessary for many Western readers who are not true patriots but who falsely they think they are.

It is unsurprising that Khashoggi supported the monarchy’s “Saudization” policies to the hilt – all their migrant workers were only oil money-bloodsuckers, not people who helped build modern Saudi Arabia. The recent expulsion of 700,000 Yemeni migrants, along with other deported nationalities, is something many in the West would love to achieve.

A “reformer”, despite being anti-Iran, anti-Shia, anti-migrant….

2018 choices for the Middle East: democracy & religion or monarchy

Of course the West loves Khashoggi – just like they do, he hated Iran and sough to create a Sunni-Shia divide which has no precedent in Islamic history.

A Khashoggi could never exist in Iran – that is the glory of their popular revolution. Promote anti-democratic monarchy in Iran? That’s only among the lunatic exiles. Promote aggressive and obviously-imperialist war in Iran? War is only for self-defense against invaders, which is ordered in the Koran – Muslims do not turn the other cheek.

That Khashoggi is celebrated in the West is to their great shame, and I’m sure many Westerners are ashamed of that. These honest people instinctively know that Khashoggi is no “refomer”, but hopefully this series reminds us exactly why.

The Saudi People also know Khashoggi is no reformer. I recently covered a pro-Khashoggi demonstration in front of the Saudi embassy in Paris – there were twice as many journalists there than Saudis. Saudis know this guy was no hero – he was part of the system of Saudi oppression.

But I am well-aware that Westerners do not really care about Khashoggi – it’s just an interesting tabloid story.

Those who care about Khashoggi are the leaders of the Mainstream Media, Western politicians, and Western CEOs – sadly, this is who controls things in Western liberal democracy’s “rule of law”. They care about Khashoggi because he represented the possibility of bourgeois revolution within the Muslim monarchical world, which would create the opportunity for international high finance to legally wrest control of the Saudi Arabia’s oil from the Saudis – what else would result from installing bourgeois liberal democracy in Saudi Arabia?

Khashoggi has passed, and the push to prevent democracy for Muslim people – by protecting monarchs and their intellectual toadies – will continue. However, socialism and democracy cannot be denied in the Muslim world forever.

Please note that this entire Part 2 only discussed political ideas which the West can relate to – liberal democracy, republicanism, socialism, true patriotism, etc. Part 3 discusses a political concept which most Westerners cannot discuss intelligently – Salafism. It also discusses the very-unintelligent ideology Khashoggi promoted: what I term “Liberal Democratic Salafism”.

In 2018 Salafism is a politically-reactionary concept, and it is absolutely opposed in Iran for that reason, but it is so prevalent in the Muslim world and in Muslim history that it must be properly understood. Westerners must understand it because they have it too.
