The Issues we have with the Arab-Muslim world – What Obama won’t mention

June 4, 2009
The Issues we have with the Arab-Muslim world – What Obama won’t mention
 
Teaching that non-Muslims are non humans, such as Christians are “pigs” and Jews are “apes”.
 
Sharia law (implementation) horrors, including oppression of women.
 
Honor killings epidemic.
 
Playing “victim” while being the aggressor, such as the Arab “Palestinians”, Taliban, etc.
The Genocide campaign by radical Islam (Hezbollah, Hamas, Ahmadinejad, etc.) on Israel / Jews.
 
Bigoted Islamism: Persecution, oppression of and apartheid against all non Muslims in the Islamic world (including in S. Arabia, Palestinian Hamas, etc.).
 
Racist Arabism: Persecution, oppression of and apartheid against all non-Arabs in the Arab world, especially of native Egyptians (Nubians), Kurds, Copts, Assyrians, Berbers (native N. Africans), Jews (not just inside Israel), Africans (Africans living in Arab countries and the racist slavery in Sudan, Mauritania… genocide in Darfur).
 
The wide justification of Islamic violence all over the world.
 
Squeezing the world economy by power of oil prices (OPEC).
 
From the 22 Arab countries so far, they all range from totalitarianism to corruption, not even one has managed to be real free, equal and democratic.
 
The global Islamic radical campaign to dominate the world – untamed by “moderate” Muslims.

Arabs’ man, ‘corrupted Arab-oil man’ in Obama’s admin. ‘Pro – Dictatorship, ‘ARABIST – BIGOT’ C. Freeman attempted appointment for the CIA

Arabs’ man, ‘corrupted Arab-oil man’  in Obama’s admin. ‘Pro – Dictatorship, ‘ARABIST – BIGOT’ C. Freeman attempted appointment for the CIA

Alarming appointment at the CIA by Steve Rosen Thu, 19 Feb 2009 at 3:55 PM

Readers of this blog know that I have been generally quite positive about the appointments the new Adminsitration is making for Middle East policy positions. Today’s news is quite different. According to Laura Rozen at the Foreign Policy blog, Chas W. Freeman, Jr., the former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia, will become chairman of the National Intelligence Council, and may at times participate in daily intelligence briefings to President Obama. This is a profoundly disturbing appointment, if the report is correct. Freeman is a strident critic of Israel, and a textbook case of the old-line Arabism that afflicted American diplomacy at the time the state of Israel was born. His views of the region are what you would expect in the Saudi foreign ministry, with which he maintains an extremely close relationship, not the top CIA position for analytic products going to the President of the United States.

Here is a sample of his views on Israel, from his Remarks to the National Council on US-Arab Relations on September 12, 2005: “As long as the United States continues unconditionally to provide the subsidies and political protection that make the Israeli occupation and the high-handed and self-defeating policies it engenders possible, there is little, if any, reason to hope that anything resembling the former peace process can be resurrected. Israeli occupation and settlement of Arab lands is inherently violent. …And as long as such Israeli violence against Palestinians continues, it is utterly unrealistic to expect that Palestinians will stand down from violent resistance and retaliation against Israelis. Mr. Sharon is far from a stupid man; he understands this. So, when he sets the complete absence of Palestinian violence as a precondition for implementing the road map or any other negotiating process, he is deliberately setting a precondition he knows can never be met.” Here is another example from 2008: “We have reflexively supported the efforts of a series of right-wing Israeli governments to undo the Oslo accords and to pacify the Palestinians rather than make peace with them. … The so-called “two-state solution” – is widely seen in the region as too late and too little. Too late, because so much land has been colonized by Israel that there is not enough left for a viable Palestinian state alongside Israel; too little, because what is on offer looks to Palestinians more like an Indian reservation than a country.”

According to Foreign policy blog, Freeman has told associates that in the job, he will occasionally accompany Director of National Intelligence Adm. Dennis Blair to give the president his daily intelligence briefing. His predecessor, Thomas Fingar, wore a second hat as deputy director of national intelligence for analysis.

I repeat: if there are serious financial conflicts of interest, Freeman should withdraw. I also find some of Freeman’s realist statements, even as contrarian, a little too brutal for my taste. But I also believe that someone whose views push the envelope against recent US policy in the Middle East is an important asset for the United States right now. And I find the hysterical bullying of this man to be repulsive.

Arab oil and the US economical crisis

Manraaj Singh Editor Profit Hunter: ‘Arab Oil Wealth To Dwarf US Economy!’ [Apr 29, 2008] [1].

Walid Phares (Oct, 2008): ‘OPEC manufactured the financial meltdown’ [2].

Notorios businessman Donald Trump Blasted Oil Prices and OPEC July 30th, 2008 “Oil (costs) is what is killing the world’s economy,” Observers say if the U. S. would rattle its own domestic oil supply saber it would shock the market and costs would plummet. Oil experts say the U. S. could be free of Middle East imports in less than 3 years. [3], he blasted major oil producing countries for the current recession and accuses large oil companies of “doing a major number” on everyone. [4], it’s the price of oil that is to blame, OPEC and the Saudi Arabians [5], on Feb. 4, 2009: “As far as the economy is concerned, though, I’m afraid that if and when the economy does get going, you’ll have OPEC raise its ugly head and come out and just raise oil prices again and kill it, because I think that OPEC had a lot to do with the failing of the world economy.” [6].

US president Barack Obama in his speech on February 24, 2009 said: The fact is, our economy did not fall into decline overnight. Nor did all of our problems begin when the housing market collapsed or the stock market sank. We have known for decades that our survival depends on finding new sources of energy. Yet we import more oil today than ever before. [7].

Trump: There’s Too Much Oil

Real estate mogul Donald Trump says there is way too much oil in the world
to justify the current high market prices. “Frankly, I hear there are tankers
all over the world that are loaded up to the gills with oil,” he told CNBC.
“They have so much oil they don’t know what to do with it. It’s ridiculous
what’s going on with OPEC and all of that.” Trump blames major oil producing
countries for the current recession and accuses large oil companies of “doing a
major number” on everyone. Trump lauds the recent dips in the price of oil,…

Human rights vs Islamic monstrous lobby globally and its power over the UN

Human rights vs Islamic monstrous lobby globally and its power over the UN

 

Rights experts attack Islam defamation drive at UN

Wed 17 Dec 2008, 15:33 GMT
 
By Robert Evans

GENEVA, Dec 17 (Reuters) – The United Nations should stop passing resolutions, largely promoted by Islamic countries, calling for laws against “defamation of religion”, according to international experts on freedom of expression.

The four experts — from Africa, Europe, Latin America and the United Nations itself — said such laws were often used to shield religious leaders from criticism and to suppress religious minorities and non-believers.

“International organisations, including the United Nations General Assembly and Human Rights Council, should desist from the further adoption of statements supporting the idea of ‘defamation of religion’,” they declared.

Exclusive: OPEC: A Recurring Nightmare

Exclusive: OPEC: A Recurring Nightmare
Family Security Matters, NJ – Jun 23, 2008
OPEC, acronym for The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, was founded in Baghdad on September 14th, 1960, ostensibly to bargain and negotiate the sale of oil to the West by Algeria, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela….

They sound just like another commercial fraternal organization, but with the exception of Venezuela and a bizarre on again/off again romance with Ecuador, all member states are Muslim and the bulk of the oil reserves, estimated to be more than three quarters of the entire world’s, are located in the Arab Middle East….

Saudi Arabia and OPEC cohorts don’t just hold us over a barrel of oil. They fund and control radicalized Middle East departments in major Universities …

OIL! POWER! What If it wasn’t ARAB – MUSLIM BIGOTS who suck us to the bones at the pump

July 15, 2008

OIL! POWER! What If it wasn’t ARAB – MUSLIM BIGOTS who suck us to the bones at the pump

A simple question, What if it was not the Arabs, not the Muslims (OPEC) that control the world’s energy?

What if the oil tycoons were of a different background, say Irish Catholic or Jewish?

Could you imagine how they would be lynched [in the media and all tools of public opinion]?

But it’s “only” Arabs, Muslims, and they can do whatever they want, limit or extend production of oil.

Worst is of course the immense unlimited power they enjoy in being permitted to continue “business” as usual… in the “field” of crimes against humanity… No one ever dares speaks out against the racist Arab massmurder of the Africans in Darfur, slavery in Mauritania, or how they continuously demonize Jews, or cries out against the mainstream Muslim media that always finds the “victimhood” among ‘Palestinian’ thugs or Al Qaeda in Iraq or Hezbollah’s crimes on Lebanese, all to facilitate in justifying the killing of infidels mainly Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, etc., Don’t think all of the above is not related, it’s still about their unlimited “freedom” to oppress everyone else… no one ever dare says, acts against the Islamo Arab GOLIATH.

Now, you tell me who really is in control of ‘world affairs’?

(Arab controlling the world) KINDA MAKES YOU WONDER [Dem. vs Rep. in dealing with ARAB OIL POWER]

June 11, 2008

(Arab controlling the world) KINDA MAKES YOU WONDER [Dem. vs Rep. in dealing with ARAB OIL POWER]

KINDA MAKES YOU WONDER…

John H. at Powerline writes:

For several decades, the Democratic Party has pursued policies designed to drive up the cost of petroleum, and therefore gas at the pump. Remarkably, the Democrats don’t seem to have taken much of a political hit from the current spike in gas prices. Probably that’s because most people don’t realize how different the two parties’ energy policies have been.

Congressman Roy Blunt put together these data to highlight the differences between House Republicans and House Democrats on energy policy:

ANWR Exploration
House Republicans: 91% Supported
House Democrats: 86% Opposed

Coal-to-Liquid
House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 78% Opposed

Oil Shale Exploration
House Republicans: 90% Supported
House Democrats: 86% Opposed

Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Exploration
House Republicans: 81% Supported
House Democrats: 83% Opposed

Refinery Increased Capacity
House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 96% Opposed

SUMMARY
91% of House Republicans have historically voted to increase the production of American-made oil and gas.

86% of House Democrats have historically voted against increasing the production of American-made oil and gas.

PAUL M. adds: It’s useful to keep this sort of thing in mind when we hear (on something like a daily basis these days) that the Republicans have run out of ideas or that Republican ideas didn’t work. The truth is that most major Republican ideas weren’t tried because the Democrats blocked them. Increasing the domestic production of oil and gas (a move so obvious it barely meets the standard for being an idea) is hardly the only example.

The post elicited this response from commenter “Ronnor”. (I’ve cleaned up the grammar and spelling.)

“After being called a conspiracy theorist I posted this.

‘Who said anything about conspiracies?

I’m talking about taking bribes from the Arabs. Don’t you think thats being done? It’s called the price of doing business. Take a look at the Carter Center financing and then look at how he helps skew the oil market.

Why wouldn’t you think that politicians would take a bribe when every year someone goes to jail for it?

How cheap it would be to buy votes? And you wouldn’t need many, what 50 Senators? Pay a couple of billion dollars in Swiss accounts. Or fund PAC’s, universities and their professors to push the Arab Oil Agenda. Didn’t Saudi Arabia just give a couple of hundreds of millions to Harvard and a few other places? Saw that in the newspapers — just what do you think that is for?

Phony up a few ‘trusts’ where it’s impossible to find out what, where and how much they are really giving.

Want to really screw up oil shale development? Gve 20 attorneys 50 million dollars to start environmental inspections, lawsuits, marches on State Legislatures.

It’s a lot of money on the table — $800 billion to the Arabs this year, a couple of billion to Senators, Congressmen/women, couple of greens to suppress gas and oil exploration, stop nuclear and all the rest of things that they as American citizens can do legally and the investment comes back a hundred fold.

Why wouldn’t the Arab oil producers do something like that? It’s the smart thing to do and it’s what is ingrained in the Arab ethic (they have none).

How laughable that you don’t think bribery works. It does and has for millennia. You must think the Arab stupid and our elected officials completly honest if you don’t think this is happening somewhat right now. Remember, money talks and you know what walks.
