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.

Africa: Ghadafi – African “God” With His Message – aggressive spread of radical Islam through racist Arabism

Ghadafi – African “God” With His Message – aggressive dictatorship’s spread of radical Islam through racist Arabism

Africa: Ghadafi – African God With His Message

Sunny Igboanugo Dan Kanu Austin Oboh And Rafiu Ajakaye

11 February 2009

Pharaohs of ancient Egypt were reputed to have employed advisers, whose job was to continuously drum it in their ears: “Remember Pharaoh, you are but human.” This constant refrain, was meant to restrain them from playing God in administering the affairs of their people. In years thereafter, and even today, this critical practice, appears to be missing in the lives of leaders, especially those who want to rule the world, or at least impact on it in their peculiar manner. History is replete with them. Adolph Hitler of Germany, Benito Mussolini of Italy, Ferdinand Marcos of Philippines, Jean-Claude Duvalier (Baby Doc) of Haiti, Augusto Pinochet of Chile, Abdul Nasser of Egypt, Saddam Hussein of Iraq, Idi Amin Dada of Uganda.

All these men, though in varying degrees, wielded influences within their countries at the time they were in power, that tapered towards playing God. Of course their styles were different, but the public understanding of their actions, was similar – they were men, who wanted to dominate the world, their world, some by raw display of power, others by sheer control and manipulation of the thought process of their people. Their actions not only resulted in most cases to outlandish and even bizarre outcomes, but profoundly shook the entire world. Some came with religion, while others came through politics or combined both. However the domino effect were same – the world listened.

Though most of them are now history, even though the impacts and most times scars they created, still remain as reference points to confirm man’s desire to control his environment, there is no doubt that the future would still have a lot of them to contend with willy-nilly, despite the influence of civilisation. This is the context many people are now looking at the renewed wave of activities within the African Union (AU), with the ascension of Libyan leader, Col. Muammar Ghadafi, to its leadership. But does the Libyan leader fit into the profile of these men of power and influence? No doubt. Would he succeed in seizing Africa as they seized their environments? Time will tell. But the fact remains, at least on the surface that he is working at it.

I should like to point out that Gadhafi’s invitation to his fellow Arabs is nothing but a declaration of race war on Africa. It is an invitation to more Arabs to invade and colonise Africa. Indeed, it is a call for the final phase of the 15 centuries old Arab lebensraum war on Afrikans – a war to Islamise and conquer all of Africa, from Cairo to the Cape and from Senegal to Somalia, and to then enslave or Arabise all the conquered Afrikans. In order to make that clear, it is necessary to first put his invitation in the context of the traditions of Arab melanophobia and negrophobia, and of Arab expansionist ambitions and conquests that go back to the time of their Arab prophet, Muhammed.” With his present pre-occupation, this fear may have been assuaged.

While rights agitators in Nigeria avoided making comments regarding the aggressive spread of Islam through Arabism, they agree with Dowden that Gadhafi’s rights records are enough ground to deny him headship of the AU. They also argued that his election says a lot about other African leaders.

Who owns CNN?

The answers might surprise you (or maybe not). Ever wonder why CNN and Time are so blatantly pro-islamic. Ever wonder why these weasels want are tooo eager to toe liberal / islamic propaganda??

A good chunk of AOL Time Warner is owned by Prince Alwaleed Ibn Talal the Saudi billionaire. It is well known that Prince AlWaleed is a front for the Saudi royal family. All of the oil money that is swindled from Aramco the Saudi oil company is “invested” by Prince Al Waleed and his company.

From the ‘Saudi Online’ page:
RIYADH, 12 March — Prince Alwaleed ibn Talal announced yesterday that he has spent $1 billion on stocks over the last six months, including another $500 million on Citigroup.
“Already the world’s largest shareholder in Citigroup, the prince’s shareholding in the world’s most profitable bank is now around $10 billion,” said a press release from his Kingdom Holding group.
“At about $43, Citi’s share price was at too attractive a price,” the prince said in the statement.
And he added $450 million to existing shares in AOL Time Warner. “The price was very cheap at around $23,” the prince said.
“I believe in the power of the AOL brand and I am already a shareholder in this global media giant. Therefore, when the price reached lucrative levels, we decided to increase our stake. The weakness in AOL’s stock price is temporary as it reflects the temporary weakness in several areas in which it is involved,” Alwaleed said.
He also increased his stake in priceline.com to $100 million, or 5.4 percent of the company.

Georgetown’s Capitulation to Radical Islam
By Joe Kaufman and Jeffrey Epstein
FrontPageMagazine.com Friday, January 06, 2006
Georgetown University was built with a Catholic and Jesuit identity. This bit of information is proudly displayed on the school’s website. But like Bethlehem in Israel, that identity is quickly being lost to a radical strain of Islam, as a counter-terror symposium has been abandoned and a pro-terror conference has been confirmed. Indeed, one of America’s most prestigious universities appears to be under siege.
Fearing violent reprisal from militant Muslim members of their student body, the school’s conference center rejected an educational symposium being hosted by America’s Truth Forum (formerly the People’s Truth Forum), a non-partisan, fact-based organization whose sole mission is to educate the American people on topics of national security. In this case, the subject matter to be discussed involved the “Underlying Roots of Terrorism: The Radical Islamist Threat to World Peace and National Security.”…
While the counter-terror symposium was shunned, an organization associated with violence has been awarded a forum. From February 17 – 19, the Palestine Solidarity Movement (PSM), an activist group that has expressed its willingness to work with Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, will be holding its “Fifth Annual Divestment Conference” on Georgetown University’s campus. At past events, shouts of “Kill the Jews” and “Death to Israel” could be heard amongst the crowd. And according to a news report, during PSM’s last conference, when a resolution to condemn terrorism was voted down, “the delegates erupted in cheers.”
When PSM announced its event, it’s interesting to see who they sent a press release to. A site that devotes a page to the release, Palestine Monitor, is said by one source to be a “PRO-TERRORIST SITE.” This is easy to understand, as the website contains numerous pages glorifying the Intifada (uprising) against Israel. Another location that prominently displays the press release is Ramallah Online, a hate site that equates the Jewish Star (Star of David) with the Nazi Swastika.
Not wanting to anger its on-campus insurgency, the university has remained hush about the event. The consideration of a small matter of money may also be on Georgetown’s mind. The PSM conference is coming on the heels of a $20 million donation to the school, given by a fairly effluent Saudi sheikh, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. This is the same sheikh who had previously donated $27 million to a telethon that raised money for the families of suicide bombers.

New Islamic satellite channel launched
March 8, 2006
Filed under: Newspapers — Hans Henrik Lichtenberg
Prince Alwaleed ibn Talal, the chief executive of Saudi Arabia’s Kingdom Holding Company, has officially launched an Islamic satellite channel seeking to project Islam as a religion of moderation, the Arab News online daily reports. Al-Resalah (The Message) has been broadcasting informally since last Wednesday. At a press conference on Monday, Prince Alwaleed said the 24-hour channel would target an Arab audience, especially young people, by projecting ‘our Arab heritage through a modern medium.’. Al-Resalah will be the forerunner of a future English-language Islamic channel for Western audiences. The prince said the new Islamic network would provide a platform for a dialogue on religious, social and economic issues affecting everyday life, but its priority would be to counteract the misconceptions of Islam in other societies. Tarek Alsuwaidan, the channel?s general manager, said that 40 per cent of the programmes would be youth oriented, 30 per cent would target women and families, and 10 per cent would focus on children, Arab News reports.

The Failure of Western Universities [incls. Middle East studies, MESA, Saudi funding at Georgetown and Harvard, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, John Esposito, Martin Kramer, Daniel Pipes]

Kari Vogt, historian of religion at the University of Oslo, has stated that Ibn Warraq’s book “Why I am Not a Muslim” is just as irrelevant to the study of Islam as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion are to the study of Judaism. She is widely considered as one of the leading expert on Islam in Norway, and is frequently quoted in national media on matters related to Islam and Muslim immigration. People who get most of their information from the mainstream media, which goes for the majority of the population, will thus be systematically fed biased information and half-truths about Islam from our universities, which have largely failed to uphold the ideal of free inquiry. Unfortunately, this situation is pretty similar at universities and colleges throughout the West.

London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), scene to a growing number of anti-Semitic incidents from an increasingly pro-Islamic campus, issued a threat to one of its Jewish students to cease his protests against anti-Semitism at the University. Gavin Gross, an American, had been leading a campaign against the deterioration of conditions for Jewish students at SOAS, which is part of the University of London. SOAS had witnessed an escalation of anti-Jewish activity, in both severity and frequency. At the beginning of the year, the Islamic Society screened a video which compared Judaism with Satanism.
Meanwhile, in a move to “promote understanding between Islam and the West,” Saudi Arabia donated about SR13 million to a leading British museum. The officials said the money from Prince Sultan would pay for a new Saudi and Islamic gallery, which would help to portray Islamic culture and civilization in right perspectives. It would also help fund scholarships for Saudi students at Oxford University.

The Saudis and other oil-rich Arabs are busy buying influence over what Westerners hear about Islam. Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud, a member of the Saudi Royal Family, is an international investor currently ranked among the ten richest persons in the world. He is known in the USA for a $10 million check he offered to New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani in October 2001 for the Twin Towers Fund. Mayor Giuliani returned the gift when he learned that the prince had called for the United States to “re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stance toward the Palestinian cause.”

Prince Talal is also creating a TV channel, Al-Resalah, to target American Muslims. He already broadcasts in Saudi Arabia. In 2005, Bin Talal bought 5.46% of voting shares in News Corp, the parent of Fox News. In December 2005 he boasted to Middle East Online about his ability to change what viewers see on Fox News. Covering the riots in France that fall, Fox ran a banner saying: “Muslim riots.” Bin Talal was not happy. “I picked up the phone and called Murdoch […] [and told him] these are not Muslim riots, these are riots out of poverty,” he said. “Within 30 minutes, the title was changed from Muslim riots to civil riots.”

BBC has got a Muslim trying to rewrite historic Jewish Jesus from Judea

December 17, 2008

BBC has got a Muslim trying to rewrite historic Jewish Jesus from Judea (attempting — to no avail — to “Arabize” & confuse JUDEA with Arabia…).

Accompanied with a typical Islamic-bigotry’s bombarding propaganda of the “bad” Israelis that dare to try fight (with security checkpoints) the Arab Muslim (invaders) that terrorize the Jews.

Just another typical biased BBC’s blend of radical Islamism & Arabism re-“view” of true facts, in Islamic culture there’s a word for it: Taqiyya (http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/018169.php#c451487) – an intentional planned lying to and deceit of the infidel, it’s encouraged, as long as the infidel “buys” it.

Arabized media in the west, the CNN case

November 13, 2008
Arabized media in the west, the CNN case
 
 
Bombarding propaganda
 
Qatar is one of CNN’s major financier, you are getting sick of the repeated advertisement of Arab media tools how so hypocritically they show you their “equality” for everyone, covering the awful truth about oppressing all minorities, all those that are not Arab in the middle east who the supremacists Arabs think its’ all “theirs”.
 
 
‘Inside the middle east’
 
For years, the Syrian born Hala Gorani was going up ranks her “inside the middle east” is still going strong.
‘Inside the middle east’ is basically an Arabic program that its aim is to hide its oppressive tyranny, in a region of totalitarian societies where no Arab country is true democratic or free (in the true sense, including the Iranian/Syrian occupied Lebanon – the terrorized Hezbollahland), by exaggerating true or untrue stories that can be used to idolize Arab middle east.
 
‘Inside the middle east’ will never show you the true (story of) repressed conditions of non Arabs such as: Kurds, Berbers, Jews, or non Muslims such as: Copts in Egypt, etc.
 
 
Ugly ‘Palestinianism’
 
Also appearing in that Arab program which is only to “educate Americans only about the cherry picked stories – Arabs want us to see“… is Ben Wederman, the notorious west bank based CNN  terribly biased journalist, who never seems to find a spot to reveal the oppression of ‘Palestinians’ upon their people: whether its out of blind radical Islamic motivation or typical Arabisn dictatorship, or the Islamic apartheid against the minority Christian Arab community that live in fear and under persecution, or the genocide campaign that is rampant among most ‘Palestinians to “eradicate” the “Zionist entity” or about the epidemic of ‘honor killing’ crimes, or about corruptive leadership that robs its own people ever since Arafat era, but Ben Wederman doesn’t see any “use” in reporting these burning issues, he is instead a great spokesman for the ‘Palestinian cause’, an example from Nov 7-8 (2008), Ben had a program about “olives”, supposedly just talking about olive oil… soon you saw the blatant despicable ‘Palestinianim’ as the Arab farmer talked about how “old” his tradition is and how the land is so “his”… nothing about Arab immigration into Israel-Palestine of course, that’s a no-no mention in rewriting – Palestine.
He had his camera ready to film Israeli police dispersing a crowd that protested illegal Arab infiltrators into Jewish land… (the true story Ben didn’t tell you) when he was asked politely by the police to evacuate the area he refused (after all, he knows very well he wouldn’t dare refuse any order from the ‘Palestinian’ police… what he never bothers explaining his “situation” living in the west bank, how “neutral” a journalist can be), only the 3rd time when he made sure he had enough to portray the Israeli restrained cops as “bad occupiers” he said he is “going”…
 
As if it wasn’t enough with Arab tyrants’ regimes “culture” infesting the mainstream media in the US, CNN made yet another Arab program, “MME” Market middle east, where one of the very first opening broadcasts was “naturally” about “how to help the “poor”, “poor” “Palestinians” (no, not how the filthy rich Gulf oil Arabs should help, not those Arab regimes that have encouraged the Arabs –not yet called “palestinians”– in 1948 to evacuate Israel-Palestine, but how the west should rather help them), those self destructive guys, the violence-happy crowd, where bigoted Jihadism and militant racist Arabism was always mainstream, ever since the Mufti led the massacres in the 1920’s – the “creme de la creme” of the middle east.
 
The middle east insider
 
There’s no room there for criticism of call for change in the diabolic ‘Palestinian’ society to leave hatred and terror behind and to choose education for their children and ‘normal life’ for themselves.
 
There’s no space for criticism of all Arab regimes that rule their people with an iron fist, Arabian middle east where synonymous with torture, no, not the light type attributed to the CIA in Gtmo., but the darkest kind, where most of all: Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran (and its Hezbullah thugs) & Egypt are doing it with passion and special “tender love”.
 
That’s true Islamism & Arabism, to keep committing the crimes in the middle east and to show [fake] unity outside, that’s the true “middle east insider”.

Fitzgerald: Arab racism & black Muslims

October 23, 2008

Fitzgerald: Arab racism and black Muslims

You can find online complaints about Arab racism from black Muslims (or Black Muslims, that is members of the Nation of Islam, who are not considered real Muslims by the Arabs) in this country. Despite the universalist claims made for Islam, it is, and has always been, a vehicle for Arab supremacism. The reasons are not hard to find. As Anwar Shaikh (an ex-Muslim who was born in Pakistan and died in Wales in 2006) noted in his book Islam, The Arab National Religion, the Arabs consider themselves to be superior to other Muslims because they “received” the message from Allah. It was given to them and was in their language. Non-Arab Muslims are supposed to read the Qur’an, or listen to its recital, only in Arabic. Any other version, in any other language, is not the same thing.

Compare this to the missionaries for Christianity, who in some cases became extraordinary linguists in order to study native languages and dialects and translate the Bible into them. And they did this for languages that in many cases had never had a written form — thereby helping to preserve the language for use, and for study.

And when a Muslim prays, wherever in the world he may be, he is directed to pray — it is a matter of fantastic importance — toward Mecca, toward the Hejaz, toward Arabia, the center of his being.

And the Sunnah, one should not forget, is at least as important as the Qur’an. Some Arabs even say that it is possible to imagine a guide to life with the Sunnah alone, but not with the Qur’an alone. Both matter. And what is the Sunnah? It consists of “practice” — the customs and manners of the early Arabs, that is, of Muhammad and His Companions, that serve to gloss the Qur’an. And the Sunnah is derived from two texts — the Hadith, the written record of the sayings and acts of Muhammad, and the Sira, the biography of Muhammad, the first version of which appeared a century-and-a-half after the historical (if he was historical) Muhammad’s death. What matters is not what parts of the Sira were imagined or which Hadith were made up, and by what means, but which parts Muslims take to be the genuine details of the life of Muhammad, and what Hadith they believe to be the most “authentic” in the compilations of the most “authoritative” — by their lights — muhaddithin.

As Anwar Shaikh notes, the Arabs of Arabia needed their own “religion” to compete with, but not to be completely unlike, the earlier-in-time monotheisms of the lands they first conquered. These lands were inhabited by Christians and Jews. The Jews were not confined to the Land of Israel, but were to be found living, and for a long time, in many parts of the Middle East. They were living in Iran and present-day Iraq, and of course in Arabia itself — for how else could they keep being encountered by Muhammad, in Mecca, Medina (Yathrib), the Khaybar Oasis? The Arab “religion” that they created is clearly the result of taking bits and pieces of pagan Arab pre-Islamic lore (the djinn, for example), mixed with misunderstood and misremembered bits of Judaism and Christianity.

This amalgam was presented to the conquered peoples, the Christians and Jews, as not the New and Improved Version of their faiths (as modern Western marketers might have done with a detergent), but rather as something else — the True Version of Their Faith, which they had misunderstood and distorted or perverted. This made it less strange a faith, and those elements of pre-existing beliefs to be found within it, however jumbled, made it easier for Islam to insinuate itself into the minds of non-Muslims who often converted purely as a practical matter. They did so in order to join the side of the conquerors, to be free of the many disabilities that as non-Muslims they would have to endure (the three choices were: to be killed, to convert, or to endure forever the status of dhimmi, with all that that meant). How many Christians in America today, if they had, in perpetuity, to pay $50,000 per head to remain Christians, would do so? For how many would there be a falling off, and how many each year?

Islam has been a destroyer of other cultures and other languages. In a world that worships “diversity,” the thrust of Islam has been to efface diversity. Languages other than Arabic have received no sympathetic study or attention by Arabs or Muslim missionaries — the effort has been to efface the many languages and cultures that could once be found in the lands conquered. There are, here and there, pockets of Aramaic-speakers in some Syrian villages, a handful of Mandaeans and Yazidis (450 of whom were killed by Muslim bombs in the worst act of Muslim terror in Iraq). There are the Copts in Egypt, or what is left of them, they who once were virtually the entire population of Egypt. There are Assyrians and Chaldeans in Iraq, or what is left of them, they who were once…ditto. And so on.

The history of Arab oppression of blacks, whether those blacks became nominal Muslims or not, is too long. The history of Arab enslavement of blacks started far earlier, was much more devastating in its effects, and continued much later, than the Atlantic slave trade. A scholar has estimated that because Arabs specialized in seizing young black males for use in harems (contrary to the Western imagination, harems were not just for the rulers), and would castrate their hunted prey in situ in the jungle, the mortality rate among those then taken by slave coffle to the waiting boats that would take them to the slave markets of Islam reached 90%. See “The Hideous Trade” or google that title and “Jihad Watch” for more.

Slavery is legitimate in Islam. Muhammad had slaves. Muhammad is the Perfect Man. Seventh-century Arabia allowed slavery. Seventh-century Arabia provides the Sunnah, the customs and manners that are to be followed. The Arab slave trade went up and down East Africa, with the chief entrepot for the local trade in African blacks being the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba, held by the Arab rulers of Oman. The Arabs also went deep into Central Africa, and into West Africa too, while the European slave-traders never managed to penetrate the interior, preferring to remain on the coast of West Africa and having slaves delivered to them by local tribes.

Slavery was not abolished willingly by the Arabs. It was stamped out, rather, by Western powers. There is no Arab William Wilberforce. There never has been a declaration, by any Arab leader, or government, or theological institute, that slavery is always and everywhere morally wrong. And there cannot be such a declaration, because Muslims are hemmed in by the Example of Muhammad, uswa hasana, al-insan al-kamil, and the practice of the Sunnah. If the French ended Arab enslavement of blacks in much of North Africa, it was the British — the Royal Navy — that helped stamp out the slave trade that continued between Africa and Arabia. This tale is told most fully in J. B. Kelly’s “Britain and the Persian Gulf, 1795-1880.” But the Arabs still managed, as the British presence on the seas diminished, to resurrect that slave trade, which continued into the 1960s.

In 1962, just before slavery was formally abolished — because Saudi Arabia was not yet rich from oil revenues, it had to succumb to Western pressure — 20% at least of the population consisted of black slaves. For more google “Arab slave trade in Africa,” or start here.

It is not surprising that in Dayton, a Muslim girl might have made up a story blaming black men. Nor is it surprising that the Arabs in this congregation want to move from a black neighborhood to a white one. Look at how unwelcome Arabs and Pakistanis have made black Muslims who wish to attend, in any numbers, the same mosques with them. Blacks are seen as fit fodder for conversion to Islam — without really letting potential converts know much about Islam. The proselytizers hold back so much, until their targets are deeply committed and can’t easily get out. They do this so as to swell Muslim ranks and perceived (and real) power, but are not so happy for the new converts to actually associate with Arabs and Pakistanis, who find such an association distasteful. Compare that with the welcoming practice of Christian churches, not least among those evangelicals who have become the butt of so much self-assured mockery.

Not only are most forms of art — sculpture and most painting — forbidden in Islam (look at any major museum at the “Islamic art” — Arabic calligraphy on ceramic plates, and Qur’anic calligraphy on paper), but it is difficult to conduct science within a society suffused with Islam, that discourages every sign of free and skeptical inquiry about the most important thing — Islam — and hence about everything else as well).

And then there is music. There is no Muslim equivalent to the church music of Christianity. Music is forbidden (Black Muslims in America may at times ignore this ban — one more sign of un-orthodoxy). Wherever strict Muslims are in power, they attempt to ban all kinds of music, the folk-music that naturally wells up, as it does in Afghanistan, because it responds to a universal need that the Shari’a laws do not allow to be met. The wedding-singers killed in Afghanistan, the gamelan players in Indonesia disparaged by local Muslims, the RAI singers (often Berbers) threatened or killed in Algeria — all of these are signs and symbols of the Islamic hostility to music. This does not mean that there are not singers. No one denies that there is Arabic music — that oud, those other exotic instruments, or even singers such as Umm Kalthum. But the role of music is much smaller, and it is despite Islam and its discouragement that music appears. The texts and the spirit of Islam, truly adhered to, would deny a role for music altogether. It distracts, you see: distracts from worship.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe begs to differ.

And in the earlier, pre-old-time-religion phase of her career, Rosetta Tharpe’s performance begs to differ with, and demands to ignore, just as much as does her later work, the hostility to music that is inculcated by Islam. And her many admirers — whose numbers may swell with the two examples of her art posted today — will agree.

[March, 2003] The Islamists and the Pan-Arabists could be compared, in these ambitions, with the Italian Fascists of Mussolini’s time, who wanted to resurrect the Roman Empire, and to the Nazis, who likewise wanted to resurrect ancient Rome, except in a German version. The most radical of the Pan-Arabists openly admired the Nazis and pictured their proposed new caliphate as a racial victory of the Arabs over all other ethnic groups. Qutb and the Islamists, by way of contrast, pictured the resurrected caliphate as a theocracy, strictly enforcing shariah, the legal code of the Koran. The Islamists and the Pan-Arabists had their similarities then, and their differences. (And today those two movements still have their similarities and differences — as shown by bin Laden’s Qaeda, which represents the most violent wing of Islamism, and Saddam Hussein’s Baath Party, which represents the most violent wing of Pan-Arabism.)

The Arabists Among Us

By James M. Hutchens

In 1995, a New York Times “Notable Book of the Year,” was Robert D. Kaplan’s The Arabists. It is a fascinating and insightful account of how the State Department of the United States government became, and remains, pro-Arab.

Basically, it is a story of how, over the last two centuries, the children of missionaries to the Muslim world of the Middle East, have been pipelined through Ivy League schools into the State Department. Once embedded there, in the Office of Near Eastern Affairs, their love for the Arab peoples and culture has had a major determining influence on our Middle East policy, especially as that relates to Israel. As one put it, “The Jews were a distant, unreal world to us then, but the Palestinians were individuals we knew” (page 4).

Another is more chilling, “to a man, the American community in Syria and Lebanon remained opposed to the State of Israel and some even crossed the line into anti-Semitism” (page 7). The fact is, many of these missionaries were from mainline Protestant denominations, whose doctrinal stance regarding Israel was one of supersessionism or replacement theology. With a doctrinal justification for Christians replacing Jews as the covenant people of God, it was a short step for these missionaries and their children to adopt a pro-Arab political posture.

While the “Arabist” position has been well entrenched in the State Department for decades, it was given an industrial-strength adrenaline shot during the tenure of Secretary of State James Baker. That same pro-Palestinian bias remains and appears to hold hostage our current Secretary of State, Colin Powell.

The pretense of pan-Arab or pan-Islamic solidarity has long served as a dangerous elixir in Palestinian political circles, stirring unrealistic hopes and expectations and, at key junctures, inciting widespread and horrifically destructive violence. Self-serving interventionism under these false pretenses had the effect of transforming the bilateral Palestinian-Israeli dispute into a multilateral Arab-Israeli conflict, thereby prolonging its duration, increasing its intensity, and making its resolution far more complex and tortuous. Only when the local political elites reconcile themselves to the reality of state nationalism and forswear the false notions of pan-Arab and pan-Muslim solidarity, let alone the imperialist chimera of a unified “Arab nation” or a worldwide Islamic umma, will the long overdue regional stability will be finally attained and the Arab-Israeli conflict resolved. Not the other way round.

Blood, soil [Michel Aflaq composed a Koranic super narrative of Arabism, soil and Islam]

jpost Sep, 24 2008 24 Sep 2008

Faith, blood, people and soil… Such themes also come together in that most hideous of Middle Eastern fascist movements, Ba’athism. Ba’athism’s founding thinkers, the Syrians Sati al-Husri and Michel Aflaq, composed a Koranic super narrative of Arabism, soil and Islam. They wrote of an Islam as the great cultural and intellectual achievement of the Arab people, and it in turn formed a symbiotic relationship with Arabism, such that they flowed from one another, locked in an eternal embrace.

Amazon.com: Islamic Imperialism : A History: Books: Efraim Karsh, Middle East scholar Karsh surveys for a general audience the region’s Islamic political past. Parallel to his narrative, Karsh frequently contrasts the universalistic proclamations of Islam with cycles of imperial consolidation and fragmentation. After recounting the Prophet Muhammad’s religio-political establishment of Islam, and the discord about his legacy that continues today, Karsh narrates the battles over Muhammad’s caliphate that eventuated in the Umayyad and Abbasid Empires. Karsh’s commentary often looks forward to contemporary ideologues of Islam who ransack history to justify grievances. In Karsh’s coverage, the irruption of the Crusaders into the Levant hardly provoked a jihad to eject them; that occurred, in his account, through politically ordinary processes of empire building, eventually by the celebrated Saladin. Islamic unity and zeal, however, had always to be affirmed by reestablishers of the caliphate, a theme Karsh incorporates into his chronicling of the rise and decline of the Ottoman Empire, the distribution of its territories after World War I, and varieties of pan-Arabism prevalent after World War II. An informative foundation for further exploration of Islamic history.

…Pan-Arabism should more accurately be seen as a subset, a limited version with more modest initial goals — today Arabdom, tomorrow the world. And since Islam is a vehicle for Arab imperialism, pan-Arabism means, necessarily, promotion of Islam, and vice-versa. The goal of a unified Arab state, the goal that Nasser was said to embody, was merely a way-station on the path — fi sabil Allah — to spreading Islam until it, and therefore the Arabs (the “best of peoples”) would everywhere dominate. Pan-Arabism was not, as so many wrong-headed analysts would have it, a movement hostile to Islam or to what is often called, misleadingly, “pan-Islamism” (which is merely the geopolitical dimension of mainstream Islam).

Islamism and Baathism aren’t that different. – By Lee Smith …, “Arab nationalism,” Kedourie explained, “affirms a fundamental unbreakable link between Islam and Arabism.”

http://www.slate.com/id/2108576/

The Ba’ath party was founded in Syria in 1928 by Michel Aflaq and Salah al-Din Bitar with a pan-Arab nationalist program and elements of both Marxism and fascism.  Aflaq and Bitar were influenced by Arab nationalist trends that had begun in time of the Turks, inspired in part by the Islamic and Arab reform ideologies of Jamal al-Din al-Afghani (1839-1897), his student Muhammad Abduh (1849-1905), and Abduh’s student, Muhammad Rashid Rida (1865-1935). These thinkers called for a renewal of Islam, with limited borrowing of concepts from the West. Abduh in particular was active in promoting Arab autonomy within Ottoman Turkey, and had placed great hopes in the Young Turks. Rida grew increasingly anti-Western with time, and was a great influence on Hassan El-Banna, who founded the Muslim Brotherhood. While Aflaq was a Greek Orthodox Christian, Ba’ath ideology adopted an affinity for Islam, and Pan-Arabists saw one of their goals as asserting the primacy of the Arabs in the Muslim world.

Hiding Arab Racism, May 1, 2005

By Adel Makhoul

This book, like Culture and Imperialism, is essentially about Western prejudice against Islam. [Edward] Said condemns intellectuals in the West who in his eyes are “agents of exploitation”. Yet Said himself is an agent of racism: Arab Racism.

A Pan Arabist, he always supported Arab unity and “Islam” at the expense of non-Arab and non-Moslem peoples. Said directs and manipulates the Western taste for self criticim, and all that does is deflect the world’s attention from Arab and Moslem attrocities committed against Christians, Kurds, Jews, Israelis, Coptic Christians, non-Arab Sudanese, etc.

South Sudan and the problem of Arab racism in Black Africa

Khartoum’s project is the Arabization of Sudan. Khartoum is determined that Sudan will eventually become wholly an Arab land with all its diverse African peoples converted into Arabs. Sudan is Khartoum’s pilot project, backed by the Arab League, in the Islamisation and Arabisation of Black Africa.

It has been noted by Opoku Agyeman that Pan-Arabism, in its so-called ‘civilizing mission’ perceives Africa as a ‘cultural vacuum’ waiting to be filled by Arab culture “by all conceivable means” (Agyeman, Opoku “Pan Africanism vs. Pan Arabism”, Black Renaissance, 1994, p.39) including Islamisation, and the settlement of Arab populations on lands forcibly seized from Africans. The assumptions, objectives and methods of this project may be illustrated from the statements of its principal implementers in Sudan since the 1820s:

http://www.guardiannewsngr.com/sunday_magazine/article11//indexn3_html?pdate=300308&ptitle=South%20Sudan%20and%20the%20problem%20of%20Arab%20racism%20in%20Black%20Africa%20&cpdate=010408

To this day, Islam has retained its imperial ambitions. The dream of regional and world domination has remained very much alive, despite the destruction long ago of the last great Muslim empire, which has left the Islamic caliphate vacant. The 20th century doctrine of pan-Arabism (exemplified by Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser), though secular in appearance, has been effectively Islamic in its ethos, worldview, and imperialist vision. Karsh quotes Nuri Said, longtime prime minister of Iraq and a prominent early champion of pan-Arabism: “Although Arabs are naturally attached to their native land, their nationalism is not confined by boundaries. It is an aspiration to restore the great tolerant civilization of the early caliphate.”

…Similarly, the assorted versions of pan-Arabism — Nasserism, Ba’athism — were seen as alternatives to Islam, when in fact they were not alternatives at all. They merely displayed, for quite specific and local reasons, an emphasis on “Uruba” or Arabdom that was explicable given the impoverished state of the “Islamic world” and the fact that there were local stumbling blocks to pan-Islamism (including the lack of financial wherewithal). In Turkey Kemalists were in control; in Iran there was the Shah, trying in his maladroit way to emphasize the pre-Islamic past. Pan-Arabism was a version of pan-Islamism, a subset, which at the time seemed to be as much as one could hope for. Nasser or Saddam Hussein could dream of being King of the Arabs, but the idea of a much bigger operation, especially since for both Nasser and Saddam Hussein the most dangerous political opposition was mosque-based (the Muslim Brotherhood for Nasser, the Shi’a clerics for Saddam Hussein), was out of the question.

Syrian Liberal Nidhal Na’isa On the West, Pan-Arabism, Islamism, and Al-Jazeera

MEMRI ^ May 17 2007

Syrian liberal author Nidhal Na’isa began his career in journalism as a teenager, at the government dailies Al-Thawra and Syria Times,(1) but today he is a vocal opponent of the Arab regimes and the pan-Arab ideology, as well as of Islamism and Islamist terrorism. He has written that due to the Islamist “tsunami,” the Middle East could be declared an “intellectual disaster zone”; that if one were to try to sell pan-Arab identity to “the bushmen and the cannibals” they wouldn’t buy it; and that the pan-Arab media is “a harbinger of ill, pain, and destruction.” In contrast, he praises the West for its humanism and its respect for the individual, and writes that, given the current state of affairs in the Arab world, the real question is not “why does the West hate us?” but rather why it does not.

The following are excerpts from some of Nidhal Na’isa’s recent articles:

“We Could Declare [The Middle East] an Intellectual Disaster Zone After the Surging Fundamentalist Tsunami Swept Through”

In an interview published April 23, 2007 on the liberal Arab website Aafaq, Na’isa discussed the Islamist phenomenon:

“The world is swept up in globalization, whereas our unfortunate regions are being swept up everywhere by fundamentalism. We could declare [the Middle East] an intellectual disaster area after the surging fundamentalist tsunami swept through it.

“This is a wave that came after the slaughter, on the debris of the failure and disintegration of the leftist pan-Arab projects, [when] their intellectual hollowness and the superficiality of their proposals… became evident…

“Fundamentalism is a notion that disturbs the sleep of everybody concerned with the present and the future of this region. All of us are fundamentalists, when fundamentalism is taken in the sense of tenacious clinging to [our] opinion and rejection of the other. I see fundamentalism on the faces of all, in their thoughts and proposals. Nobody comes to terms with the other; no one pays attention to anyone else. In my view, this is fundamentalism in its more important and fuller meaning…”

“In Our Totalitarian Societies… Leaving [the Fold of] Collective Thought is Considered Error, Heresy, and Atheism”

When asked about the phenomenon of increasing religiosity in Syria, Na’isa said that it was part of “the spread of the culture of the herd and ‘group’ thinking, which means the negation of the individual and the individual’s importance in creation, development, and originality.”

He continued: “Western civilization was founded on unleashing individual initiative and glorification of individual reason – and not collective reason, which is generally emotive and not of sound judgment.

“In our totalitarian societies, the collective ‘I’ prevails over the individual ‘I,’ and all become equals under the podiums of the [Islamic] jurisprudents. Leaving [the fold of] collective thought is considered error, heresy, and atheism…”

Na’isa’s praise for the West does not, however, extend to current U.S. policy in the region, which he feels has been counterproductive and has fed extremism: “Much of the religiosity in our societies is based on the principle ‘not out of love for ‘Ali, but in order to spite Mu’awiya,’ [i.e.] in order to spite the current regimes, and in order to goad George Bush and the U.S., which acts in a reckless, thoughtless, and foolish manner, and, through its policies, increases the strength of this [fundamentalist] current…

“So long as the [Syrian] nationalist opposition forces remain repressed and banned, and religious activity is the sole [kind of activity] permitted and tolerated, many will see in it a shelter for the expression of… their identities as [people who] reject the Arab constellation of despotism…”

The Syrian Media is “A Mongoloid Child, Retarded and Underdeveloped”

In the interview, Na’isa draws a clear distinction between past heroes of resistance to colonialism and those whom the modern Arab media crowns as martyrs:

“It goes without saying, and is clear to anyone with eyes to see, that there is a distinction between [on the one hand] someone who ends a life full of human giving and sacrifice… and who worked for a noble and lofty goal, and [on the other hand] someone with a black history… The lying pan-Arabist, Islamist-propagandist media will never succeed in creating saints and martyrs out of slaughterers, butchers, and hired killers…

“The hypocritical pan-Arab hissing [i.e. the pan-Arab media]… has poisoned our lives and turned them into a cheap lie…. The viper, before it bites, emits a hissing sound, which is a harbinger of ill, pain, and destruction.”

Na’isa said of the Syrian media in particular that it is “a mongoloid child, retarded and underdeveloped.”(2)

“In Truth, I Think That Those Wicked ‘Infidels’ Love Us More Than We Hate Them”

On April 22, 2007, Nidhal Na’isa published an article on the liberal Arab website Elaph titled “Why Don’t They Hate Us?” in which he lampooned the Islamists’ anti-West discourse:

“A great part of the fiery, devout, [Islamic] revivalist discourse… is based on [the claim] that the ‘infidel’ West is our mortal archenemy, that it hates us with the greatest hatred, and that it does not let any opportunity pass for hatching conspiracies and striking at us.

“[It is also based on the claim] that all of the backwardness, misery, deterioration, decline, defeats, and baseness currently present in the Arab and Muslim worlds are due to an uninterrupted flood of machinations on the part of those evil infidels. [The claim is] that they target our religion and our being because they have no religion, and because we are better than them in Allah’s view, and that they envy us for this very reason.

“[The Islamists claim] that we are a great source of concern for [the West], and that we are their sole preoccupation and fear, and that the green [i.e. Islamic] ‘giant’ is ambushing them with its extraordinary capabilities of poverty, hunger, corruption, despotism, ignorance, prisons, delusion, superstitions, and preachers.

“[According to the Islamists, Islam] is, for this reason, the only one capable of destroying Western civilization, defeating it on its home ground, and wiping it out of existence through ‘a few explosive belts’ that do nothing other than kill and target Arab and Muslim children and their innocent blood.

“[They say that] the mother of all decisive [battles] – the fateful war with the atheist, sinful infidels – passes by way of those innocents, and that if it were not for accursed Israel, wicked America, the infidels, and the descendants of apes and pigs that lie in wait for us night and day, our countries and homelands would be like Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, and Oslo… When Allah rids us of those wicked, accursed people, we will live in tranquility and bliss, and live happily ever after, and we will have offspring, and girls whom we will dress in chadors, veils, and hijabs.

“But in truth… I think that those wicked ‘infidels’ love us much more than we hate them. If it were not for them, life would be transformed into hell and fire.”

“London Has Become a Safe Haven for Fundamentalists Fleeing the Hell of Middle Eastern Despotism”

“[The West] has contributed greatly – through material aid, technical expertise, and advisory assistance – to many of the amenities of life we enjoy. Tens of millions of humans have benefited from the West’s achievements in the sciences, and Western universities have opened [their doors] to the multitudes of students arriving from all countries of the world.

“They have granted citizenship and inducements – material and other – to all of the outstanding, the gifted, and the creative to live in those countries – and even to those who were chased out of their own countries. For instance… London has become a safe haven for fundamentalists fleeing the hell of Middle Eastern despotism. They release, from London, their fiery communiqués for the destruction of the infidel West …

“The prophecy has been fulfilled, and [these Islamists in London] have, in fact, become the only group to be redeemed from the inferno of tyranny, the hell of oppression, and the fire of despotism.

“It was the infidel West, for instance, that extracted oil from the Arabian desert, and turned it into a green paradise and expansive oases full of vitality. [In these oases,] various kinds of economic, intellectual, athletic and artistic activities flourish, and conferences and conventions are held to revile the infidel West and to accuse [other Arabs] of treachery, in the intoxicating atmosphere of the heart of the desert.

“If it were not for this massive technological aid, those countries would be living now as [they lived] in the earliest period of that great, time-honored history of theirs, before there was a West and before there were infidels.

“In addition, this infidel West dedicated its utmost efforts and thinking… to the medical sphere, and eliminated many of the contagious, infectious diseases that used to be predominant in the world. And it is this same West that gives [the Arabs] electricity with which to desalinate water…

If the West Were To Reciprocate the Enmity of the Arab Satellite Stations, “It Could Turn Their Lights Off and Send Them Back to the Early Camel Age”

“And it was [the West] that launched satellites ‘that float in the sky’(3) [that made possible] the [Arab] satellite TV stations which show up every day on the [TV] screens, and which sprinkle their unique ‘masterpieces’ over mankind. If the West wanted to, and if it were to act with the same logic of unveiled enmity [as the Arab satellite stations do], it could turn their lights off with one push of a button and send them back to the deep black depths and the Early Camel Age…

“I believe that applying oneself to putting forward all of the overwhelming conclusive arguments concerning the humanism of the West, the loftiness of its endeavors, and the nobility of its intentions, would be… a pointless linguistic digression. The general concept can be summed up by [the fact] that the West has not been grudging in [sharing] its humanism and its civilization with others, and it demands of them only a bit of quiet – if there is to be no good faith, recognition, and return of the favor…

“The world has become a narrow lane in a small global village. It listens, follows [developments], thinks, contemplates, and analyzes – and it cannot at all fathom the motives and the goals of this hostile and vicious discourse of incitement that some tirelessly market, exploiting their alliance with despotic regimes.

“One painful conclusion can be drawn from all of this… [and it is] that the more logical question… is not ‘why do they hate us?’ – if there is indeed some degree of hatred – but rather ‘why don’t they hate us?’…(4)

Al-Jazeera Talk Shows as a Window on Arab Society

In an April 15, 2007 article on Elaph.com, Na’isa took issue with those who criticize the popular Al-Jazeera talk show “The Opposite Direction.” In a rather backhanded compliment, he “praises” the confrontational show as an accurate, if pale, reflection of the conflictual state of contemporary Arab society:

“I don’t understand why many criticize ‘The Opposite Direction’… and call it… a cockfight, or a boxing ring, or a dialogue of the deaf.

“All the aforementioned program does is to pass on, through its participants and its unaffected interviews, some random aspects of a head-butting, fragmented Arab reality…

“’The Opposite Direction’ is a microcosm of the larger ‘opposite directions’ that are to be found in every home, in the street, within every institution, group, and political party, and in every small gathering, even those around a hookah and a backgammon table in a popular café, or in an out-of-the-way village.

“In fact, relatively speaking, [’The Opposite Direction’] is far less violent than what goes on in reality: the deafness, the anger, the resistance, the mutual shoving and head-butting. It often seems to me as though no one understands the other, and no one wants to listen to the other.

“If Allah, may He be praised and elevated – and the fact that he has not done this is [due to] His great wisdom – [but] if Allah were to bestow upon us weapons of mass destruction, we would destroy one another down to the last man… And then we could rest, and give tortured humanity a respite from our long and wearying problems, discussions, and talks.

“Hopefully our discussions will remain at the level of the ‘The Opposite Direction’ – a ‘bit’ of yelling and vituperation… and will not transform into a deadly hell and tremendous bloodshed…

“So first off, I would like to sincerely thank all of the participants… in this program, because they express, in a true and spontaneous manner, the nature of our societies, their innermost being, without any ‘touchup’… These are our people and our peoples. This is how we are. This is what we have to offer…”(5)

On the Arab Media’s Version of “Arab Identity”

In an April 26 article on Elaph, Na’isa wrote: “The charlatan… propagandistic media glories in the bombastic term ‘Arab identity,’ and it extols it and promotes it as the heavens’ gift to those sinking into a morass of backwardness…

“In truth, I tried hard, exhausted with fatigue and worn down by sleeplessness, and I [still] am trying, to define the basic characteristics of this identity vaunted by the Arab nationalists, professional pan-Arabists, and the Islamists, [thinking that] perhaps I could find a single reason or convincing explanation as to the uniqueness of this gift of nature that they dote on night and day.

“[I thought that] perhaps I could stumble on just one find by which I could advance a single proof concerning the enigma of the Zionist, colonialist, Burmese, Bengal, and Nepalese conspiracies to make this identity disappear from existence…

“I couldn’t find any convincing reason [to make] people cleave to this identity, apart from a wicked and obscure desire, not free of bad intent, to take revenge on them, deceive them, and keep them in their state of misery, decline, and in their humiliating position.

“This identity has come to mean… oppression, despotism, coercion, repression, prison, mass graves, security chases, exploitation, persecution, the organized plunder of national resources, odious racist discrimination against minorities and women, monopolization of thought, talent, and creativity, and the punishment of the free. It contains many distinguishing characteristics, such as: corruption, fragmentation, wars, tribal conflict, clannishness, blood feuds, and deep-rooted hostilities that never had any basis in the first place.

“[In the Arab world] the ruler is the army boot…, dictatorship, demagoguery…, military coups, and deification of the leaders. Without these unique characteristics, Arab identity loses its… customary and familiar luster and glamour…

“In light of all of these saddening and oppressive facts, if we were to put this identity… up for sale – to the bushmen or the cannibals in the jungle, to outcasts or refugees, to gypsies or to vagabonds – would any of them agree to buy it?…”(6)

“One thing we should do immediately is drop the lazy concept of “the Arab street”: it means nothing, it doesn’t exist. Like most formulations beloved by the left, it’s an excuse to avoid having to learn anything hard or specific – facts, dates, trade patterns, economic relationships. The Bahraini street has nothing in common with the Ramallah street. The “Arab street” is as useless a notion as the “European street”: Americans should compare, for example, France and Belgium with Kuwait and Qatar. Who are the real allies? The difference at Arab League meetings henceforth will be between those members of a moderate, modernizing tendency and a dwindling number of decrepit thug states who prefer to carry on taking refuge in pan-Arabism’s perversion of traditional Arab fatalism and celebrating their failure.” – Mark Steyn

OLD STAND-BY ARABIST RACIST

http://www.shalomjerusalem.com/jerusalem/jerusalem74.html

Their grievance is not really Russian imperialism, or the 5 to 10 percent of the West Bank under dispute, or black African encroachment on Arab land, or purported French insensitivity to legitimate Islamic pride, much less an American “crusade” to harm Muslims.

All these issues and the hundreds of others — from the right to build a reactor in Iran to the desire for a semi-autonomous Chechnya — in theory could be discussed, argued about, and adjudicated through democratic dialogue.

But that is impossible. For you see, the real problem is the democratic dialogue itself — unknown in the Arab Middle East and much of the Islamic world, and a hindrance to both sharia and the pan-Arabist thug with epaulettes and sunglasses. Yet consensual government alone is the key to ending failed statist economies, gender apartheid, religious intolerance, state-controlled media, and tribalism. It alone might stop the self-induced misery and with it the tedious scapegoating of “the Jews and America.”

Much of the Islamic Middle East continues to blame others for its own induced catastrophe, apparently unaware — thanks to the lever of oil it didn’t discover, doesn’t know how to develop, and uses to intensify rather than alleviate its poverty — that its entire culture is becoming an international pariah. Islamic young men on European flights are looked at with distrust; they are not welcome in Russia. China wants

none of them. They are wary of visiting India. Australia learned from Bali. The whole world is watching — in disgust.

In short, the suicide bomber, the improvised explosive device, the car bomb, the televised beheading, the wacko fatwa, the sleazy propaganda streamer on the Internet, the new cult of death — all cowardly and lethal phenomena — these are now the innovations that the world associates with the Middle East in lieu of gene research, car production, or computer breakthroughs. If you look for gender equity in the Middle East, you won’t find it in Arab Olympic delegations, Saudi schools, or the Iranian government, but in the opportunity for young women to blow themselves up right beside men. Indeed, killing infidels is the nascent women’s-liberation movement of the radical Muslim world.

Arabism – Racism [Concised info, Wiki style]

Arabism and Arabization – asides from association with the a movement for unification among the peoples and countries of the Arab world, from the Atlantic ocean to the Arabian sea. it is more about Arab nationalism which asserts that the Arabs constitute a single nation. At times Pan-Arabism has tended to be secular and often socialist, but often it embeds within it Islamic tradition and culture or Islamism (like the genocide in Darfur). and has strongly opposed Colonialism and Western political involvement in the Arab world. Also historic Arabizing of the middle east [1] and in Africa that process is still going on today [2].

There’s a strong argument that Arabism was never detached from Islamism, To this day, Islamhas retained its imperial ambitions. The dream of regional and world domination has remained very much alive, despite the destruction long ago of the last great Muslim empire, which has left the Islamic caliphate vacant. The 20th century doctrine of pan-Arabism (exemplified by Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser), though secular in appearance, has been effectively Islamic in its ethos, worldview, and imperialist vision. Karsh quotes Nuri Said, longtime prime minister of Iraq and a prominent early champion of pan-Arabism: “Although Arabs are naturally attached to their native land, their nationalism is not confined by boundaries. It is an aspiration to restore the great tolerant civilization of the early Caliphate” [3].

In the words of political science professor Adeed Dawisha, pan-Arabism at its inception was deeply influenced by European fascism, with the result that “Arab nationalists, infused with the illiberal ideas of cultural nationalism, had almost nothing to say about personal liberty and freedom.” Thus, in keeping with his pan-Arab beliefs, Maksoud has apologized or excused the excesses of assorted Arab tyrannies. [4].

At Baathism there was a greater link between Islamism & Arabism, Fascist movement, Ba’athism. Ba’athism’s founding thinkers, the Syrians Sati al-Husri and Michel Aflaq, composed a Koranic super narrative of Arabism, soil and Islam. They wrote of an Islam as the great cultural and intellectual achievement of the Arab people, and it in turn formed a symbiotic relationship with Arabism, such that they flowed from one another, locked in an eternal embrace. [5].

An Arabist can be referred to someone that is well knowlodgeable of Arab culture and nationality but can also be referred to a radical nationalist anti non-Arab.

As an ultra nationalist ideology it has been embedded with bigotry in its roots and in its motivated action.

Racism

In General

‘Arabism Equals Racism’, in an elaborated article, Gerald A. Honigman writes on the “acceptance of anyone else’s political rights in a multi-ethnic region that most Arabs see exclusively as “purely Arab patrimony.” That’s the Arab-Israel conflict in a nutshell; but it is also the core of the Arab-Berber, Arab-Kurd, Arab-Black African, Arab-Copt, Arab-Assyrian, Arab-non-Arab Lebanese conflicts, as well, among others. The Arabs’ Anfal Campaign against the Kurds and their actions in Darfur and the rest of the southern Sudan are just a few of many examples of Arab genocidal actions against all who might disagree.” [5].

The bigotry linkage of Arabism’s supremacy and radical Islam, by A ‘Short Critique of Islamic Fundamentalism’ Around the late 1920s the Moslem Brotherhood was formed by Arabist thinkers racial supremacy [1]. In the aftermath of 7/7/London Bombing a group calling itself: “Organization of Qaidat Al-Jihad in Europe” posted: Rejoice O Islamic nation. Rejoice O Pan-Arab nation. Rejoice, for the time of revenge on the British Zionist Crusading government has come [6].

Walid Phares writes about Arabism’s denial of identity of millions of indigenous non-Arab nations as an ethnic cleansing on a politico-cultural level [7].

‘Christians of Iraq’ site published an extensive historic account on “The Foolishness of imposing Oppressive Arab Nationalism on Non Arabs, Non-Arab Muslim minorities such as the Amazigh, or Berbers, Kurds, and Turkmen found themselves officially out of favor. They faced the prospect of becoming “Arabized” or of being denied political and even civil rights. Groups that identified themselves as neither Arab nor Muslim had it even worse: Southern Sudanese, Copts, Jews, and Assyrians were plunged into a protracted nightmare that saw their communities ground into anonymity, forcing many to emigrate permanently. Even Maronites, whose retention of political power in Lebanon immunized them from utter marginalization, watched with alarm as Arab nationalist propaganda increasingly portrayed them as a foreign and sinister element in the heart of the Arab nation.” [8]

Adel Makhoul wrote in May 1, 2005 aboutPan-Arabists Hiding Arab Racism, that they’re agents of racism: Arab Racism, that always supported Arab unity and “Islam” at the expense of non-Arab and non-Moslem peoples and tries to deflect the world’s attention from Arab and Moslem attrocities committed against Christians, Kurds, Jews, Israelis, Coptic Christians, non-Arab Sudanese, etc. he also points to the fact that Sadam Hussein’s poisoning of the Kurds has never been condemned by one Arab intellectual or leader. This is because a racist prevalent attitude in the Arab mind is that the entire Middle East should be Arab. This also explains the attitude towards Israel, a country that is predominantly non-Moslem and speaks a Middle Eastern language other than Arabic.[9] Michael Totten decries the tired Arab nationalist myth that Arabism protects Christians. [10]

The linkage to terror – Protecting terrorism, Pan-Arabism: the inhuman progenitor of Islamic Terrorism [11]. “Terror was used by the Arabs against the Jews in the Land of Israel since the dawn of Zionism.” [12]

Anti-Persian

A historic account of Pan-Arabism’s Legacy of Confrontation with Iran & Arab racism against Iranians. [13], Iran Heritage says that It was in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq where Arab racism attained its most vulgar … The “Arabization” of Persian contributions on the world stage was in full. [14]

The Egyptian Arab in the Al-Qaeda organization, A. Zawahiri described in April 2008 the “Persians” as the enemy of Arabs[2].

Anti-Kurd

The Kurds in Syria between 2 to 2.5 million [15] they’re second class citizens, for many not citizens at all, the attempts of Erasing Ethnic Identity. Syrian Kurds were banned from giving their children names reflecting their ethnic identity. Pary Karadaghi, Director of Kurdish Human Rights Watch in Washington, says one of the most basic ways of showing Kurdish identity was taken away. “The campaign of ‘Arabization’ actually replaced the Kurdish names, People could not have Kurdish names on cities, buildings [and] businesses. Children’s names could not be Kurdish.” Syria’s Kurds struggle for years to survive despite government oppression on many fronts. [16] And a cry against syria’s oppression has gone out. [17]

Iraq’s Saddam Hussein s Anfal campaign was designed to depopulate ethnic cleansing the Kurdish regions in northern Iraq. [18], Kurdish writers decry the massacre of Halabja and The Racism of so-called Arab Intellectuals towards Kurds and Kurdistan [19] [20].

Anti-Berber

The UN documented the racism against Indigenous peoples Multi-ethnic States, The Imazighen Bebers are the indigenous peoples of northern Africa and the Sahel [21]. Despite Arabization’s oppression in north-Africa, they are a proud people[22], Morocco‘s Berbers Battle to Keep Their Culture [23], in 2004 they spoke out and attacked Moroccan state racism [24]. Berber Leader Belkacem Lounes: “There Is No Worse Colonialism Than That of the Pan-Arabist Clan that Wants to Dominate Our People” [25].

‘Kabylia Info’ writes about oppression and tyranny of its people by Arabic-Islamic colonialism [26], the IHT‘s description: This is Kabylia, one of Algeria‘s most restive regions – home to a stubborn and proud ethnic minority of Berbers who since the end of the colonial era four decades ago have fought to preserve their cultural identity and independence. [27]

On Caucasians

SHEIK Taj Bin Al-Hilali: “The Western people are the biggest liars and oppressors and especially the English race,” the Mufti of Australia said in Arabic during the extensive interview in Egypt, his birthplace. [28]

On the racist gang rape spree by Arab Lebanese in Australia targeting specifically white girls, From the Sydney Morning Herald 2002 Racist rapes: Finally the truth comes out, So now we know the facts, straight from the Supreme Court, that a group of Lebanese Muslim gang rapists from south-western Sydney hunted their victims on the basis of their ethnicity and subjected them to hours of degrading, dehumanising torture. The young women, and girls as young as 14, were “sluts” and “Aussie pigs”, the rapists said. So now that some of the perpetrators are in jail, will those people who cried racism and media “sensationalism” hang their heads in shame? Hardly. [29]

Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd Bin Abdul-Aziz, Jeddeh 1993: “I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave.” [30]

In 2006 Arab “Youths” Kick Man to Death on Crowded Bus in Antwerp Belgium [31].

Anti-Jewish

In General

Pan-Arabism’s anti-Jewish ideology

The champion of pan-Arabism Egypt‘s Gamal Abdel Nasser used the infamous anti-Semitic “protocols” libel in his war against Israel. [32], Both pan-Arabism and pan-Islamic ideologies looked to Hitler’s Germany as a model Haj Amin Al-Husseini expressed his admiration for the way ‘the Germans have definitively solved the Jewish problem,’ [33] & Gamal Abdel Nasser’s affinity for the Mufti was great [34], Joachim Wurst describes the emergence and psychological mechanisms of modern anti-semitismand particularly of genocidal Islamist anti-Semitism. He traces the development of this trend from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Mufti of Jerusalem in the 1930s and 1940s through the pan-Arabism of the 1950s and 1960s up to the present-day Islamism. [35].

Racism in Arabism was already strong in the 1920’s, Dr. Kaveh Farrokh explains that to understand the awkwardness (and indeed irrationality) of pan-Arabism (or any form of racialism), one is compelled to also briefly learn about the true founders of the B’aath party; Michel Aflaq and Salah al-Din al-Bitar. Both were born in Damascus, they formed their party on the basis of pan-Arabism, like the movements that had taken place in neighboring Iraq in the 1920s. Another influential and French (Sorbonne) educated Syrian, was Zaki al-Arsuzi. Al-Arsuzi was especially outspoken in his racism against the local Turks of Syria and especially venomous in his hatred against the Jews [36] He proves that Pan-Arabism is an extremely racist and chauvenistic movement on par with Nazism, whose ideology is anti-western, anti-Jewish and anti-Persian. [37]

1800’s & 1920’s.

The origin of anti-Jewish feelings among Arabs do not originate from what they preceive as ‘the occupation of Palestine’ and the creation of Israel. Even before the creation of the Israeli state in 1948 on what was before Palestine, a largely uninhabited terrain, many Jews were recorded attacked in various settlements by Arabs since the late 1800’s [38].

‘Historical and Investigative Research’ examins if Arab anti-Jewish racism in the first half of the 20th c. (that was marked already then with slaughtering of Jews with the racist shouting of Itbach al Yahud – kill the Jews) was fundamentally indifferent from the European variety [39]. On March 1, 1944. the famous Mufti: Amin Al-Husseini makes speech from Berlin addressing Muslim SS Nazi troops: “Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, History and Religion. This saves your honor. God is with you.” [40].

On Syria’s Baathism’s racism [41] Major ideas of Baathism center around racism and anti-Semitism. The Baath party stems from the Pan-Arab movement [42], examples: Syrian Daily Al Baath, October 21, 1998 had an antisemitic cartoon, and on October 21, 1998 on Syrian TV: In these days, all of us, Arabs and Muslims, must stand together against the Jews [43].

Egypt has played gross anti-Jewish TV extravaganza “Horse without Horseman” which also portrays the Arab/Israeli conflict in an antisemitic anti-Jewish format [44]. so does anti-Jewish themes in Hezbollah Media. [45] Memri So does the ADL [46], Saudi Arabia bans Jewish visitors [47]. Pew’s finding in 2005 found that in Muslim nations such as Jordan most viewed Jews. [48].

But it knows no borders, of the ADL‘s records that documents antisemitic attacks wordlwide [49], the larger portion of those listed since 2002 (to 2008) were attributed to Arabs, especially those in Europe, in a sport game in Chile, Non-Jewish Goldberg (mistaken for Jew) made headlines after fans of Palestino, a Chilean team set up by Palestinian Arabs hurled racial slurs, ‘They called me J. garbage’ [50].

In 2007 the London editor of pan-Arab daily was praying for Iranian nuclear genocide attack on Israel [51] “if the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar Square and dance with delight.” circulating its propaganda to about 50,000 readers [52].

Europe

A few examples in France: Already in October 2000 among a very long and troubling list of attacks, Jews threatened and shoved by Arabs outside O.Y. Synagogue in Paris (first of two incidents) & ‘Death to Jews’ painted on two Synagogues in Marseilles [53], between 2000-2001 200 Arabs attacked Jews on the Champs Elysees [54], in March 2003 French Arab Muslims attack Jews in Paris in an “anti-war” march [55], in 2003 Jewish congregations in Sweden have noted a sharp increase in “harassment threats and attacks by Arabs and Muslims against Jews [56], in 2004 Six Arab youths attacked a twenty three year old young mother with her thirteen month old baby [57] after “deciding” she was Jewish, cut her hair with knives, slashed her clothes and scrawled swastikas on her belly in black felt-tip pen [58],in March 2006 Jews attacked in Paris suburbs by Arabs [59] in June 2008 Jewish Boy Attacked by Arab Muslim Mob in Paris [60], A 17-year-old French Jew Rudy Haddad attacked by North-Africans (Arabs) Jewish teen brutally beaten in apparent anti-Semitic attack in Paris, “[Sarkozy] assures the victim and his family of his support and renews his total determination to fight all forms of racism and anti-Semitism,” said a statement from Sarkozy’s office. A 23-year-old French Jew, Ilan Halimi, was found naked, tortured and covered in burns near Paris on February 13, 2006, after being held captive for three weeks. He died on the way to the hospital. The crime shocked France and raised fears of surging anti-Semitism among French Muslims. In February of this year, another Jewish teenager was tortured in the same town in which Halimi was killed, in yet another anti-Semitic attack. [61].

At the UN, The ‘Arab lawyers Union of Egypt’ in Durbanin 2001, distributed a booklet of violently Ani Jewish cartoons and has, since then, continued its incitement to Jew-hatred [62].

Jeremy Jones wrote in a report in 2004 on Australiathat some of the most overt anti-Jewish rhetoric in recent years has come from the Muslim and Arab groups & communities, and within the Arab and Muslim communities there is a group of activists who seek at every opportunity to denigrate Jews, not only in association with attacks on Israel[3].

On campus: The university of Columbia’s investigation into charges of anti-Jewish intimidation by Arab professors [63].

Harassment on Jewish students in Canadian universities by Arabs like in Carleton [64], Concordia University [65] which has been described by some as “centre of militant Arabism in Canada” [66]. [67] there were charges (in 2002) of militant Arabism in Canada’s Concordia University

More on campus, On May 7 2002, an example has been seen at the SFSU while a large, angry crowd of Arab Palestinians and their supporters swarmed a Jewish peace rally (where students wore t-shirts that said “peace” in English, Hebrew and Arabic) members, used physical violence, and shouted “Get out or we will kill you” and “Hitler did not finish the job” [68] [69] [70].

There are complaints against the ‘Muslims Students Association’ MSA of racism against Jews coming from its Arabs, Muslims, in 2008 Author David Horowitz, a popular conservative writer, was derided in a Nazi-like anti-Semitic cartoon, put out by the Muslim Student Association. The cartoon, which was copied and spread around campus, portrays Horowitz, a Jewish man, as a hooked-nose Nazi hiding in a trash can [71].

Roots and cause of Middle east conflict

Pundits explain that the conflict in the middle east Arabs VS Israel(that started with racist massacers on Jews accompanied with the slogan “Itbach al Yahud – Kill the Jews” [72] already in the 1920’s [73], through Hitler’s buddy [74] the Mufti Muhammad Amin Al-Husayni is just another Arab Muslim intolerance, the plight of Israel – being a minority in a majority hostile middle east. [75] [76] [77] [79] And even progressive, left wingers in Israel realize that Arab racism must go, and that “There will be no peace around here before Arabs view Jews as human beings.” [80], or as others have phrased it: Racism and Middle East Politics, As long as middle-eastern Arabs teach their children to hate Jews, there will be no lasting peace [81]. ‘Facts and Logic About the Middle East’ asks: Racism in the Islamic World How can peace prevail in the Middle East in the face of Islamic bigotry and hate? When will moderate Muslims speak out? [82], and the phenomenon of the new anti-Semitism which demonizes Jews and Israel alike, has fused itself with the “old” European anti Jewish bigotry [83]. Saddam Hussein’s “Three Whom God Should Not Have Created: Persians, Jews, and Flies” [84] who also led a racist [85] genocide campaign [86] against the Kurds, coinsides with that in moments before his death, he shouted: ‘Palestine is Arab’, meaning only Arab. [87], as part of a culture of hatred, the racism that denies historic roots of the Jews to Israel [88].

The first recorded Arab attack on Jews in Palestine was already back in 1886 in Petach Tikva [89][90] [91] [92].

Regarding the racist expulsion of 850,000 to 900,000 Jews from Arab countries [93] [94] the ethnic cleansing of the Jews [95], the ‘UN Watch’ Mar 19, 2008 has raised the importance of Historic truth in: Testimony at the UN – “Racism and Historical Truth: Jewish Refugees from Arab Lands” [96].

On anti-Jewish racism’s effect on clarity of the middle east, Interfaith Office Acknowledges (May 2008) Anti-Jewish Motifs and Stereotypes in Commentary About Arab-Israeli Conflict [97], concern about Carter’s pro-Arabism and veteran historian of Islam and the Middle East [98] & Bernard Lewis is concerned that the “Arab strain of racism, untruths and hatred against Jews and Israel is not only more virulent than its European counterpart, but is not counterbalanced by true scholarship or competing reason.” As a result, he believes, attitudes and beliefs “long discredited in the modernity of western countries take root with gullible, impressionable Middle Eastern audiences from a pre-modern culture.” [99].

There’s extensive research on ‘Palestinian Anti-Semitism’ [100], In its official media, the PA daily described: The Fable of the Holocaust [101], the JCPA elaborates About Anti-Semitism among Palestinian Authority Academics and how The Palestinian Authority’s academic anti-Semitism has built an extensive case against Jewish existence [102] This Palestinian racism is particularly dangerous because this hatred of Jews is portrayed as the will of Allah. [103] The Arab-Palestinian racism of killing only Jews In Israel, for the sole reason of being Jewish. they target every Jew, regardless of his or her individual political views, and they apologize when they accidentally kill a non-Jew, regardless of his political view. [104]

 

 

Rachel Neuwirth Wrote “Judenrein Palestine?” about Arabs forcing Israel to remove Jews from their historic Judea and asks: Why can’t Jews live in their historic homeland if there really is peace? After all, there are 1.2 million Arabs living as citizens of Israel in the one Jewish country in the world, while there are only a handful of Jews living in any of the 22 Arab countries. In fact, in Jordan and Saudi Arabia, not only is it illegal for Jews to be citizens, they are not even allowed to live there. Therefore, she proves, instead of Israel being the “apartheid state” in the region, it is the Arab world that is not only apartheid, but also racist and religiously exclusive” [105].

Anti-Jewish by Israeli-Arabs

The worrying involvement ofIsraeli-Arabs in terrorist attacks ditected against Israeli Jews [106] [107], Among the brazened ones in 2008 are noted the bulldozer attacks [108], “He took the bulldozer, with which he fed his own wife and family, and used it to crush other families to death, simply for being Israeli Jews.”[109]. On Jul 7, 2008 a writer in Israel’s lefty paper Haaretz asks: If justifying the murder of innocents because they belong to a certain hated group is not abject racism, I’d like to know what is. [110].

Israeli-Arab leadership, Arab MK Ahmed Tibi: (the entire area) ‘Palestine Belongs to Arabs, Not Jews’ [111], on January 2008 Islamic Movement head in Israel was charged with incitement to racism, violence [112] and on August 2008 Police shut down offices of Islamic Movement branch suspected of aiding Hamas, He was later in court with incitement to violence and racism, over a fiery speech he gave in the Wadi Joz neighborhood, in which he accused Jews of using children’s blood to bake bread. [113]

Anti-African

Arab Racism against Black Africans [114] [115], Darfur is but one example of Arab racism toward non-Arabs within the broader Arab world [116]. In the New York Times June 5, 1988 about Lybia’s leader: Qaddafi is bringing a truly racist crusade against Chadand Africa, Chad’s President, Hissen Habre, told [117]. blacks who live in Arab countries subject to racism, most Arabs refer to blacks as “Abed” which means “slave” in Arabic. [118]. Umarlee details it: “Ugly Black Women”, Perfect Arab Wives, and Matters of Race, Arab racism is not akin to American white racism. Let it be said that Arab racism is different from white (American) racism [119]. In an article in TheGuardian2008, titled ‘A paler shade of black’ a former Sudanese Arab described his growing up (by his family) as “superior” to blacks, that were referred to as “abd” (slave), yet when he moved to Saudi Arabia he found out that his Arabness didn’t measure up, he wasn’t Arab enough in Saudi Arabia’s racist society. [120] Some charge the Arab attitude on Darfur, ‘to the True Nature of the Twin Fascisms of Islamism and Pan-Arabism’ [121].

Eritreans in Egypt suffer from racism [122], in 2008 alone at least 20 Darfurian refugees (who tried to break free from Egypt’s oppression into democratic Israel) have already died at the hands of Egyptian forces [123].

Palestinian-Arab Racism: Secretary of State Rice has been the subject of some vicious racial attacks [124] including an anti-black Racist Rice Cartoon in Palestinian Authority’s controlled Press Al Quds ‘Black spinster’ label pinned on Condi Rice Palestinian media use racist terms including ‘colored dark skin lady’[125] Condemned by Black Activists [126].

Genocide in Sudan

The Christian Science Monitor 2004 affirms that Racism is at root of Sudan’s Darfur crisis [127], a writer at RaceAndHistory.com calls it ‘Arab Racism And Imperialism In Sudan’ [128], Darfur crisis linked to Arab racism, Slavery [129]. and this genocide has been described as an example of Arab racism at its worst [130]. Sudanese decry the “Apology of racism”, that some Sudanese people of Arabic origin consider themselves superior than the indigenous Sudanese [131]. Der Spiegel writes about the Janjaweed: Sudan’s War within a War – regime that uses tribal conflicts and Arab racism [132]. Pundits of Sudan write about “Arab racism, Islamic bigotry and discriminatory practices are the most divisive issues in the Sudan” and its terrible effect, crimes on non-Arab Sudanese [133].

Oppression in the Arab Muslim world, Algeria: Kabylia

August 25, 2008

Algerian’s songs of defiance live onSince his killing, he has become voice for Berber minorityBy Michael Slackman Published: MONDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2005TIZI OUZOU, Algeria: High in the jagged mountains covered with olive and fig trees, his voice booms from a minivan as it twists along narrow winding roads to drop off students after a day of school.

Head down into this city and there he is again, this time larger than life, in a poster mounted on a café wall while, of course, his voice booms from the stereo behind the counter. In shops, offices, restaurants – everywhere in this region, it seems – is the voice of Lounes Matoub.

“Never surrender, never surrender,” he sings, strong and folksy.

“Of course times change, but you should never forget.”

Someone tried to silence Matoub on June 25, 1998; his car was sprayed with 79 bullets. Instead, he became in death a powerful symbol of defiance for an ethnic minority that has challenged the government’s decision to define Algeria as an Arab nation.

This is Kabylia, one of Algeria’s most restive regions – home to a stubborn and proud ethnic minority of Berbers who since the end of the colonial era four decades ago have fought to preserve their cultural identity and independence. While there have been politicians and village elders helping lead the fight, the soul of this struggle is captured in music, especially the music of Matoub…http://www.iht.com/articles/2005/10/10/news/algeria.php

[Arab racism, Arabism, Darfur & Israel] Darfur, Mr. Peanut, Hamas, etc….All In A Day’s News

Darfur, Mr. Peanut, Hamas, etc….All In A Day’s News

All In A Day’s News…
by Gerald A. Honigman

Along with other related articles, three covering the Middle East and North Africa caught my eye on April 26th.
The first was written by a journalist whom I have long admired–and I don’t admire many in the mainstream media.
I met Tom Teepen, now a syndicated columnist for Cox News, some three decades ago. I was visiting Cincinnati for a few days out of my Columbus office and had assorted media, university, and other visits, lectures, and televised debates scheduled. We have, on occasion, briefly touched base afterwards over the years.
Tom was editorial editor, I believe, for either the Cincinnati Post or Enquire. We spent a good deal of time reviewing the Middle East. Unlike too many others in the liberal camp, Tom still has maintained clear vision when it comes to Arab-Israeli politics. The real surprise was that my local newspaper published his op-ed. After many years of batting heads with the paper brass (first on my own, then with others), I’m finally noticing a bit more balance.
So, Tom’s Blaming Israel, Freelancing On Hamas–What Is Jimmy Carter Thinking? made it into the Daytona Beach News-Journal. He recapped Mr. Peanut’s recent hot date with Hamas in Syria, where Carter tried his best to make the deliberate disembowelers of Jewish babes and other innocents look good by getting it to provide him with some foggy cover for his non-stop assault on Israel, but Hamas–to its credit–wouldn’t let him. Headlines soon claimed, anyway, that Mr. Peanut achieved a breakthrough, with Hamas offering to ‘accept’ Israel.
When will they learn? Tom exposed Carter’s nauseating comedy act.
While an allegedly ‘born again’ Carter evidently doesn’t put much value in honesty, Hamas does. It has no–and will never have–any intention of granting Jews in one tiny state what Arabs demand for themselves in some two dozen others on over six million square miles of territory…including one already created from almost 80% of the original 1920 borders of Mandatory Palestine renamed ‘Jordan.’ The new state Arabs insist on creating on the ashes of Israel, not along side it, would be their second–not first–in ‘Palestine,’ the name the Roman Emperor Hadrian gave to Judaea after the Jews’ second costly revolt for freedom in 133-135 C.E. He renamed the country after the Jews’ historic enemies, the Philistines–a non-Semitic sea people from around Crete. Contemporary Roman historians such as Tacitus, Dio Cassius, and others wrote extensively about this themselves.

To most Arabs, the whole region is simply purely Arab patrimony…in their own words. As for the scores of millions of non-Arabs who have been conquered, massacred, and suppressed, Egypt’s past Uncle Tom Copt Foreign Minister, Dr. Boutros Boutros-Ghali, perhaps said it best…accept forced Arabization and /or dhimmi status (like he did) or else. Copts were the native Egyptians conquered by Arabs after the 7th century C.E. along with numerous others.

As Mr. Peanut also knows, regarding the above, Hamas is no different than the alleged moderates of Abbas’s latter day Fatah Arafatians–regardless of how much whitewash he, Washington, and others throw upon them both. In order to force the Jews to play ball, a supposed Arab good cop had to be created to counter the State Department’s Arab bad cop.
Fatah (with as much, if not more, blood on its hands than Hamas) is simply more willing to play the Arabs’ well-known destruction in phases ‘diplomacy’ game vis-à-vis Israel to use petrodollar greased-international pressure to force Israel back to its pre-’67, 9-mile wide, armistice line–not border–existence to set it up for a combined Arab/Iranian final blow…something that UNSC Resolution 242 expressly stated was not to happen in the aftermath of the 1967 War.

But, Honigman, you say, you keep repeating these same points in many of your articles.
Yes, I do.
And as long as Arabs keep on repeating their lies and distortions, and morons or deliberate accomplices like Mr. Peanut do the same, those of us who care must repeatedly answer them. Their approach is if they repeat a lie often enough (and it goes unanswered), it will be accepted as truth.
Teepen did a good job with his short op-ed, especially since he has been a fan of Carter in the past. But let me continue to pick up yet a bit more where he left off.
With a new Presidential election approaching, I’ll never forget the last televised Democratic National Convention featuring ‘Apartheid Israel’ Mr. Peanut chasing ‘Israel is one of the top three evils in the world’ Michael Moore all over the convention floor. Closer soul brothers do not exist–unless you want to throw in a more slick Obama and the company he keeps to make a trio.
It was befitting that Carter visited Hamas in Syria, for Syria–not ‘Palestine’–was indeed the birthplace of Hamas’s patron saint, Sheikh Izzedin al-Qassam (for whom its ‘militant’ wing and rockets are named )…Latakia, to be exact. Of course, back then, many if not most Arabs in the area considered themselves to be southern Syrians, espousing one version or another of a Greater Syria plan. ‘Palestinians’ were the Jews.
Along with scores (if not hundreds) of thousands of others who poured into the Palestine Mandate (after the break up of the over four century old Ottoman Turkish Empire) due to its economic development by Jews, the Sheikh joined numerous other ‘native Palestinians’ who entered relatively recently from the latter 19th century onwards from Syria, Egypt, and elsewhere in rejecting the rights of Jews to do the same thing in any part of the ‘purely Arab patrimony,’ the Dar ul-Islam. Recall that half of Israel’s Jews were refugees from so-called ‘Arab’ and /or Muslim lands.
Moving on.
Article # 2, in the same paper, quoted Mahmoud Abbas complaining that, in his recent Washington visit, no one was talking about forcing Israel back to the ‘’67 borders.’
I do admit, that was a pleasant surprise.
While the State Department (and President Clinton and President Bush off and on) has tried its best to ignore 242’s call for the establishment of secure and recognized borders to replace Israel’s absurd 1949 armistice lines (which simply marked the point where Arab invading armies were halted upon Israel’s rebirth in 1948), Israel, despite the weakness of Prime Minister Olmert and his crew, has evidently made it clear that it took President Reagan’s words seriously when he stated on September 1, 1982:
In the pre-1967 borders, Israel was barely 10-miles wide…the bulk of Israel’s population within artillery range of hostile armies. I am not about to ask Israel to live that way again.
Not only were there mostly no Arab-Israeli ‘borders’ back then, but the Abbas/Arab claim that Israel is setting up settlements on Palestinian land has the same amount of truth in it as does the ‘67 border claim.
When Transjordan (army led by British officers)–created from most of the Mandate of Palestine in 1922–attacked Israel along with a half dozen other Arab states loaded with arms left over by the Allies in World War II in 1948, it seized Judea and Samaria…British imperialism’s west bank (of the Jordan River) as opposed to the Trans(’across’)jordanian east bank. Sir Alec Kirkbride, the Brits’ East Bank rep, wrote extensively about this in his A Crackle Of Thorns: Experiences In The Middle East.
The Arab land grab was illegal, only two nations recognized it. Still, Transjordan renamed itself Jordan, since it now held both banks, and saw to it that no Jews could reenter lands where their ancestors had lived and owned land for thousands of years until their massacres by Arabs in the 1920s and 1930s.
At the same time, huge numbers of Arabs continued to pour in…more Arab settlers setting up Arab settlements.
All together, so many Arabs were recent arrivals themselves into the Palestinian Mandate that
the United Nations Relief Works Agency–UNRWA–had to adjust the very definition of the word ‘refugee’ from its prior meaning of persons normally and traditionally resident to those who lived in the Mandate for a minimum of only two years prior to 1948 when counting those who fled the fighting Arabs started upon Israel’s rebirth.
Contrary to the Arabs’ claim that these were ‘occupied Palestinian lands,’ Judea and Samaria were non-apportioned parts of the Mandate, and leading international legal authorities such as Eugene Rostow, William O’Brien, and others have stressed that these areas were open to settlement by Jew, Arab, and other residents of the Mandate alike.
How could you occupy lands taken from an illegal occupier?
The territory in question is indeed disputed…not occupied Arab lands a la Abbas, Hamas, and Mr. Peanut.
When Israel captured Judea and Samaria in the ‘67 War as a result of a bad decision by Jordan to join Egypt’s Nasser, Syria, and others in the Arabs’ latest attempt upon its life, it came to hold territory of the Mandate officially apportioned to no one…not ‘Palestinian’ land. The Arabs themselves rejected a proposed 1947 partition of the remaining 25% of the Mandate left over after the creation of Transjordan in 1922.
While I do not advocate Israel holding on to the entire area, certainly a reasonable territorial compromise which corrects the travesty of the ‘49 armistice lines–a la 242–is a must. And Judea–land of the Jews–must never become Judenrein again…unless Arabs are prepared to see the one-fifth of Israel itself who are Arabs–many hostile–get the boot as well. Such population transfers have indeed already occurred elsewhere. Consider those involving Turks, Greeks, and Bulgars, Israel’s Jewish refugees from ‘Arab’ lands, and India and Pakistan for starters.
Now, about those Jewish settlements Abbas complains about in that second article.
If Jews are to return to Judea and Samaria in the context of a 242-type territorial compromise, then how and where else will this come about if not by establishing/reestablishing Jewish towns and so forth–’settlements?’ Without the latter, Israel doesn’t get the former.
Article # 3…
The News-Journal finally gave the genocide in Darfur some of the attention it deserves…large front page article with maps and big pictures.
Unlike the Arab-Israeli mess, however, the perpetrators might as well have come from Mars. No where was the word Arab mentioned.
After the Arabs burst out of the Arabian Peninsula in the 7th century C.E. and forcibly Arabized millions of non-Arab peoples in the process, the Sudan (Nubia, etc.) held out for quite some time. In other parts of North Africa, native Jews aligned with Imazighen (’Berbers’) to resist this conquest as well. We’ll revisit this a bit later.
Back in the ‘60s, the first modern civil war broke out between the non-Muslim black African south and the Arab and Arabized (remember Dr. Boutros-Ghali’s comments above?) north in the Sudan.
Sudanese President Nimeiry’s stated during the slaughter of over a half million blacks at this time (and over a million more ever since) that…
‘the Sudan is the basis of the Arab thrust into…black Africa, the Arab civilizing mission (Arabism and Pan-Arabism in Sudanese Politics, Journal of Modern African Studies, Vol. 11, #2, 1973, pp. 177-78).’
Rudyard Kipling’s late 19th century poem, ‘The White Man’s Burden,’ supposedly typifies Western colonialist and imperialist attitudes towards the Third World. If that’s the case, then what does Nimeiry and the other example below, expressed in the Syrian Arab Constitution of the Ba’th, typify?
‘…The Arab fatherland belongs to the Arabs. They alone have the right to direct its destinies…The Arab fatherland is that part of the globe inhabited by the Arab nation which stretches from the Taurus Mountains, the Pacht-i-Kouh Mountains, the Gulf of Basra, the Arab Ocean, the Ethiopian Mountains, the Sahara, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Mediterranean Sea.’
Yet, the more recent full scale outbreak of violence in the Sudan in the 21st century has an even more revealing twist.

While earlier bloodshed there and elsewhere could largely be seen as modern extensions of the fourteen century-old clash between the Dar ul-Islam and the Dar al-Harb, the one in the Sudan’s Darfur (as those in Arab-occupied Kurdistan and much of the rest of North Africa) is mostly about Arab racism and chauvinism…pure and simple. You know, those folks who like to scream about ‘racist Zionism.’ Over a thousand years earlier, this led to the overthrow of the Syrian-based Arab imperialist Umayyad Caliphate.

So, in Sudan’s western region of Darfur, it’s Arab and Arabized versus black Africans…regardless of religion. Ditto for Arab versus Kurd, Amazigh, and so forth. These victims are mostly Muslims.
In Sudan’s largely non-Muslim south, it’s a combination of both Arab racism and the conquest of the Dar ul-Islam–as exemplified also in the expected subjugation and dhimmitude of Egyptian Copts, Lebanon’s Christians, Near Eastern Assyrians, and Israel, Jew of the Nations, and home to whom Arabs call ‘their’ kilab yahud…Jew dogs.
An Amazigh (Berber) publisher friend ( http://www.north-of-africa.com/ ) recently sent me a video produced by the highly respected Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). Its contents http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XROAu1cTcQ8 showed a debate on Al-Alam TV (Iran) on July 21, 2007over a new Berber-Jewish Friendship League set up in Morocco. Even more recently, Morocco has outlawed the creation of an Amazigh political party…especially since it espoused good relations with Israel.
Keep in mind that Morocco has had, relatively speaking and as an ‘Arab’ country, reasonable relations with Israel itself. Hundreds of thousands of Israeli Jews had their roots there. But the prospect of former and current fellow victims of forced Arabization getting together has implications for Arabs that even the Moroccans can’t allow. Much if not most of North Africa is of Amazigh–not Arab–descent.
Among other comments in that debate, the Amazigh spokesman pointed out that both Jews and Berbers predated the Arab conquest by thousands of years, fought long and hard against that conquest, and want nothing to do with Arab identity and forced Arabization. Keeping in mind that in modern times many Berbers have already been killed by Arabs for less, very brave words indeed.
To sum things up, those three news articles on April 26th were loaded with important material.
The problem is that, without further extensive explanation such as what I’ve attempted here, the issues are too complex for many readers to grasp.
Having said this, journalists and folks like ex-Presidents shoulder huge responsibilities and should therefore dig much deeper before commenting and pontificating a la Carter on such issues.
By the way, when’s the last time anyone heard Carter comment on any of the above non-Arab civil, political, and humanitarian issues?
If they don’t involve Arabs, he doesn’t want to know. And a look at the contributors to his library and such may explain at least some of Mr. Peanut’s Arab-colored vision.
