The Guardian Dubai’s skyscrapers, stained by the blood of migrant workers
The Guardian – ‎May 27, 2011‎
It seems to me a place where the worst of western capitalism and the worst of Gulf Arab racism meet in a horrible vortex. The most pervasive feeling is of a lack of compassion, where the commoditisation of everything and the disdain for certain …

Another Tack: No Jews in Judea 
Jerusalem Post – Sarah Honig – ‎Jun 10, 2011‎
The international community relishes reviling ultra-tolerant Israel while it ignores and even justifies crude Arab racism. Just try to imagine what would have happened had Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stood before some Jewish forum and exclaimed that “from now on we won’t allow the presence of one Arab in our independent Israel with Jerusalem as its capital.”

…Addressing a recent emergency session of Arab League foreign ministers in Doha, Qatar, Mahmoud Abbas unabashedly declared that “when an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital is established, we won’t allow the presence of one Israeli in it.”

Not to put too fine a point on it, this is the Arabic version of the German-minted Judenrein – “clean of Jews.” Yet no Arab diplomat was discomfited or shocked. Abbas consistently accentuates the same sentence with only trivial verbal variations. In December 2010, for instance, he put us on notice that “I will never allow a single Israeli to live among us on Palestinian land.”

AINA (press release) – Stephen Brown – [June 12, 2011]
Arab racism is at the roots of Islamic slavery that has seen 14 million black Africans enslaved and sold around the Islamic world from the seventh to the twentieth century. Unfortunately for its victims, the abolition of Arab slavery will be difficult …

Muammar Gaddafi

February 25, 2011

Muammar Gaddafi
(Al-Gadhafi, Qaddafi)
(Mu’ammar Al-Qaddafi)

Highlights of the racist Arab, Islamic fascist, butcher and brutal dictator: Muammar Gadhafi:

  • 1) Planting the seeds in the 1970s for the recent genocide in the Sudan. Involved in the bloody violence there, early on.* His (pan-Arabism) ‘racist,’ ‘fascist’ influence on Al-Bashir and co., who brought the genocide upon non-Muslims first (pan-Islamism), then on non-Arabs in Sudan.* * In the 1980s, waving the banner of the “Arab Gathering” (Al tajammu al-arabi) – a “militantly racist and pan-Arabist
    organization.”* Evoking 1930s fascistic Arab supremacy,* and Arab superiority.* * He’s also known to be the biggest importer of black children slaves from the slave markets of Khartoum, Sudan.* The Arab Republic is a known source for Sudanese slaves, mostly women and children, who have been captured in the course of that country’s civil war.*
  • 2) Allied with the butcher of Uganda, culminating into strong fanatic ‘Islamic’ ties (Gadhafi himself a fanatical Muslim.* * Indeed, at the opening of ‘Idi Amin’s Dream Mosque, named after Qaddafi, the crowds chanted “long live Gaddafi”)*. Influencing anti-Jewish bigotry on the Ugandan leader.*
  • 3) Epitomizing his dictatorship and character, the 17 April 1984 shooting at 11 people and killing British policewoman Yvonne Fletcher amid a protest against his brutal regime,* which he “apologized” for, at the end.*
  • 4) Terrorism, the 1986 bombing of the La Belle Cafe in Berlin, Germany, the 1988 massacre – bombing of Pan-Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland (270 killed), which he personally ordered to,* and the 1989 downing of a French aircraft UTA Flight 772 (170 killed).* * * *
    In an October 4, 2003 speech, as he spoke of Libya’s work for the pan-Arab cause, accused the Arab countries of ingratitude, he said that women should be trained to carry out suicide operations in Baghdad and in Gaza.*

    In 2001, Gaddafi sent thugs to help (anti-white racist* * and persecutor of Anglican Christians* *) Mugabe fight election battle, the Libyan dictator urged Zimbabwe’s Asian Muslims to wage a jihad against Zimbabwe’s small white population.*

    In February 2010, he urged ‘holy war’ [jihad] against Switzerland.*
  • 5) Despicable alliance with L. Farrakhan.
    In February 1985, Qaddafi called on Black servicemen in the US Army to leave the military, create their own army, and fight “your racist oppressors.” Three months later, infamous anti-white racist *: L. Farrakhan of the “Nation of Islam” (he, his Nation of Islam organization have been described as fascist.* * * *) received $5 Billion dollars interest-free loan from Libya.* Farrakhan-Gadhafi alliance grew.* * In fact, it is common knowledge that the Nation of Islam receives considerable financial assistance from Sudan and Libya.*

    His relationship with the Libyan tyrant was described as if he were saying: oppressing Third World people is OK with me unless the oppressors happen to be white, like South Africa’s former rulers.* Farrakhan was the only known leader to have been supporting dictator Qaddafi (calling him a “friend,” after all, and that if he’s tried for crimes against humanity, so should be G. W. Bush…) at a time when everyone shunned him, as he was murdering his people for protesting against his oppressive rule in Feb. 2011.* The Islamic anti-Semite, in the same breath -naturally- has also managed somehow to blame the Jews, embedding his infamous distortion of history, as he often tries to rewrite history and minimizing the main force in slavery – Arab Muslim.* * *
    The typical hypocrite – hater Farrakhan -rather- supports Sudan’s Arab-Islamic slavery, the real slavery in our times.*
  • 6) In 1987 Qaddafi was accused by Chad’s President H. Habre of “bringing a truly racist crusade against Chad and Africa.”*
  • 7) In 1998, the UN spoke out against Libya’s Racial Discrimination.* In 2000 there was a serious upsurge in anti-African racist violent attacks in the Libyan Arab Republic. Thousands have fled.* * Still, today, Millions of blacks are treated with harsh racial discrimination (Arab Apartheid). They are referred to as “animals” and as “slaves.”* * *
  • 8) Showing his true racist* colors against both: blacks, and “white Christians,” he was “worried” of “Black Europe” and urged EU cash to stop African migrants. He said: “We don’t know what will happen, what will be the reaction of the white and Christian Europeans faced with this influx of starving and ignorant Africans…We don’t know if Europe will remain an advanced and united continent or if it will be destroyed, as happened with the barbarian invasions.”*
  • 9) The hypocritical [Qaddafi regime’s] chairing of the infamous anti-Israel bigoted so-called “anti-racism” conference, in Durban (2), 2010.*
  • 10) The massacres on thousands of his own people (using mass violence, arms and jet fighters on masses of civilian protesters). He’s accused of genocide (2011).* * *

Mauritania: Marginalised Black populations fight against Arabisation

Mauritania: Marginalised Black populations fight against Arabisation

Hundreds of Black Mauritanian students gathered at the University of Nouakchott Tuesday to express their outrage against what they call a “comprehensive Arabization” of Mauritania. The sit-in follows several demonstrations triggered by speeches, delivered by the Prime Minister and Minister of Culture. The students condemn a move to promote Arabic as a national language.

The atmosphere was tense on Tuesday at the University of Nouakchott. Under heavy police surveillance, Black Mauritanian students gathered, once again, to show their indignation over speeches given by the country’s Prime Minister Mohamed Ould Moulaye Laghdaf and Culture Minister Cissé Mint Boide on March 1, a day set aside for the promotion of the Arabic language.

Strong statements calling for the primacy of the Arabic language in strategic areas including television, education, and administration, while reducing French and other national languages like Fulani, Wolof and Soninke to sheer Vernacular. “Everything is Arabized!”, hurled Yacouba Diakite, secretary general of the National Union of Mauritanian Students (SNEM), as he condemned the Arabic language broadcasts on Mauritanian television. He describes the speeches delivered by the two ministers as discriminatory and “disastrous” as they do not take into account the country’s cultural, ethnic and linguistic diversity.

This latest protest follows an initial demonstration that took place Wednesday, March 24. Mainly represented by members of the SNEM and bilingual clubs of the University of Nouakchott, the protesters hit the streets with two main requests : An apology from the Prime Minister who, by imposing Arabic as the sole administrative instrument of exchange and work, has given rise to a sense of cultural oppression among Black Mauritanians; And the resignation of the Minister of Youth and Culture, who, according Ndiaye Sarr Kane, spokesman for the demonstration, is incapable of representing Mauritania’s multiculturalism. According to her, part of the minister’s speech which read: “The national languages are obstacles to the emergence of the Arabic language,” were shocking.

The demonstration quickly turned violent as Arab students chanting “yes to Arabization!” clashed with the Black Mauritanians. The violence led to the arrest of several students by the police. The number of students arrested range between 4, according to Atlas Vista, and 8, according to RFI. Those arrested were released 24 hours later without being charged.

A multicultural country?

These multiple demonstrations has incurred strong reactions from the prime minister, who remains determined to justify his remarks, in an interview accorded to three journalists from the country’s private media and published on the ruling party’s (l’Union des forces de progress) website.

Interpreting his speech, according to him, requires placing it in its appropriate context. He further explains that the speech was made on the 1st of March, a day commemorated by 22 countries as a day of the Arabic language, following a decision by the Arab League, of which Mauritania has been a member since 1973. He insists that it was not unusual to place the language on a pedestal that day, he however denies denigrating the other national languages, which according to him, remain an integral part of the country. A country he describes as having both strong African and Arab roots.

Analysts believe that this is an essential fight for the Fulani, Wolof, Soninke and other black-skinned groups, who account for about a third of the country’s population, as the Arabic language consolidates the position of the Arab-Berber majority who wield more political and economic power, and who have often been accused of enslaving the minority Black populations. Slavery which is still practiced by the Arab-Berber populations was abolished three times in Mauritania in the last century alone. In 2002, Action for Change (AC), a political party which campaigned for greater rights for blacks and the descendants of slaves, was banned by the government.

Symptomatic of a deep malaise, the question of identity has rocked the Mauritanian landscape since 1966; a year that saw a massive mobilization of Black students in Nouakchott to ask for the suppression of a law that sought to make the use Arabic language in secondary education compulsory. A cultural constraint for the Black minority, natives of the region of the Senegal River Basin, the issue has remained latent for nearly half a century.

Racist Arabism & fascist Islamism: Anti-Copt

May 6, 2009

Racist Arabism & fascist Islamism: Anti-Copt

The word Copt is an English word taken from the Arabic word Gibt or Gypt. The Arabs after their conquest of Egypt in 641 A.D. called the indigenous population of Egypt as Gypt from the Greek word Egyptos or Egypt. The Greek word Egyptos came from the ancient Egyptian words Ha-Ka-Ptah… The word Copt or Coptic simply means Egyptian, however the Muslim population of Egypt calls themselves Arabs. In contemporary usage, the word Copt or Coptic refers to the Christian population of Egypt. The Arab’s oppression led the Copts to several rebellions, , Coptic: an Afro-Asian language descended from ancient Egypt, and spoken by the Copts.

During the rise of pan-Arab nationalism in the 1950s and 1960s, the economically prosperous Copts, who then represented 20 percent of the population but held more than 50 percent of the nations’s wealth, saw their businesses and factories nationalized under the socialist government of Gamal Abdel Nasser. Many of them left as a result.

Cairo’s poor Copts are known as “zabaleen”, an Arabic name for garbage man. In Cairo there is an area with the same name where those Copts are living together with the garbage that has been collected. Copts reached this level of poverty due to the regime ruling the country in the past sixty years.

From early writings, many medieval Arab writers, tended to include unsubstantiated and racist negative commentaries about the Copts. A Copt — i.e. a descendant of Egypt’s now subjugated, ancient, pre-Arab Christian people

In a statement by ‘copts-united’ it decries: discrimination takes place through security harassment and media campaigns against Shiites, Copts and Bahais…

Critics argue that a Pan Arabist will always suppor Arab unity and “Islam” at the expense of non-Arab and non-Moslem peoples. one would direct and manipulate the Western taste for self criticism, and all that does is deflect the world’s attention from Arab and Moslem atrocities committed against Christians, Kurds, Jews, Israelis, Coptic Christians, non-Arab Sudanese, etc.

Though, current actively Anti Copt attacks stems more often from Islamism, especially by Islamic groups , and persecution comes often even from Egypt’s government. , Egyptian Reformist Thinker Tarek Heggy: ‘Egyptian Copts are Oppressed, Oppressed, Oppressed’

Racial Arabization of Copt

From a Lecture Delivered by a Coptic Bishop In Hudson Institute, Washington (July, 2008) entitled: “The Experience of the Middle East’s largest Christian community during a time of rising Islamization”, where he talked about how the Arab invasion of Egypt in 639 A.D. has altered the identity of Egypt through Arabization and forced conversion to Islam, and the lasting impact on the Christian minority in Egypt. He said, “The Copts have been always focused on Egypt; it is our identity, it is our nation, it is our land, it is our language, it is our culture. But when some of the Egyptians converted to Islam, their focus changed away from looking to their own [language and culture]. They started to look at the Arabians, and Arabia became the main focus,” adding that, “if you come to a Coptic person and tell him that he’s an Arab, that’s offensive., reemphasizing: We are not Arabs, we are Egyptians. Declaring: “I am very happy to be an Egyptian and I would not accept being an “Arab” because ethnically I am not.” The Bishop went on to say, “that means shifting the identity of the nation, to belong to Arabism and to the widespread Arabic area …and this is a big dilemma for the Copts who kept their Christianity, or, I rather say, that they kept their identity as Egyptians [who have] their own culture, that of old and real original Egypt trying to keep it, The process of Arabization and Islamization are still actively working till now upon Copts, The Bishop argued that the Egyptian culture has been taken from the Copts and attributed to the Arabs, that the process of Islamization is still on-going, and that the Christian child has “to study the history of the victorious Islamic invaders, which means that as a little kid you have to praise the Arabic troops that came to your country.” … , like Assyrians, Armenians & Jews, the Copts are of the very few middle eastern indigenous communities to be surviving the Arabs/Muslims’ forcible assimilation of non-Arabs, Non-Muslims.
