Arab Unrest in the Middle East

Just as Nazism provided an ideological cloak for autocracies, so to has fundamentalist Islam provide a cloak for Islamic autocracy.  The autocracies stayed in power by drumming the Islamic bogey man.  It worked for a long time.

Suddenly they are facing a better educated and way more importantly, a better connected population.  Unlike China, they have delivered continuing abject poverty and in fact show themselves to be universally successful in only that.  The fact that billions of people are lifting themselves out of poverty is not lost on the Arabs.

Thus revolt is succeeding and will breakout sooner or later everywhere else.

This item takes the teachings of Islam and assumes that they are the end intent.  That is true for only for the very ignorant and impressionable.  The people think otherwise and desperately wish to join modern civilization.  The majority have already rejected both autocracy and fundamentalism.  They presently look to the military to usher in and guarantee a democratic system in conjunction with the judiciary.  It stands to work as that is very much how the British successfully exited its empire.

 Arab Unrest in the Middle East: A Culture of Islamic Fundamentalist Hatred

Posted: Wednesday, February 16, 2011

We used to think of the Communist Russians as our true cultural enemies, but their culture is and was always much like ours.

The 'Cold War' fear of Russian culture was a fear smoke-screen; "The Russians are Coming, the Russians are coming!", was once a clarion political cry.

Well, immigration has since allowed that the Russians, ARE HERE, and we welcome them and their culture, one very closely aligned with our own.

Even when they were in Communist Russia, Russians went to churches, when allowed to, loved making money, had a healthy disrespect for religious fanatics of all ilks, frequented cafes and gambling parlors, believed in evolution, watched television, drank alcohol, especially vodka, went to operas, and like Americans, desired to party with engaging, gorgeous babes.

In many ways their culture had never been a threat, to America, because they had been so very much aligned with what America also sought as cultural identity and cultural "fun".

The real cultural enemy of our nation's Western culture and our nation's world culture, is the Fundamentalist Islamic, who wants to exterminate us BECAUSE of our culture and replace it with theirs.

In their religious fervor, not unlike the culture of Kamikaze Japanese suicide pilots of WW2, Islamic fundamentalists, unafraid of death within the context of their religious Jihad, perpetrate suicide and death to others, with a strong conviction of their own Islamic religious and cultural superiority.

They seek to force our women into the same subservience that they force onto their women, to indoctrinate and replace our free thinking and our Democracy with mindless rote religion.

By direction of their Muslim religion, they seek to kill all 'infidels' who do not subscribe to their religious fanaticism, eliminate eating of pork, stop the drinking of alcohol, ban smoking and end the public education of women.

This is a real cultural war.

Our culture clearly sees the insanity of embracing any state enforced religion that dictates watching beheading, in a public stadium, as fun on a Saturday night, for crimes of minor infractions of their religious laws.

This article is an answer to an Arab writer from Iran, whose nation, as we now speak, is again engaged in mass demonstrations in Iranian public streets, seeking justice and Democracy from its brutal leaders.

This particular Iranian, who has written me, has assured me that Americans shall be held responsible, by the Arab world, for all Israeli mistreatment of Palestinians.

He insists that Jerusalem be turned over to Arab hands and that the United States cut all U.S. foreign aid to Israel.

To his mind, all Americans must feel 'shame' for Israeli incidents of cruelty to Arabs in Gaza, and for their support of Israel.

I shall attempt an answer to his assertions.

Dear Abdul,

All foreign aid to all other countries may need to be cut from our national budget as we are in such financial dire straits; we contribute billions to many other countries whose leaders line their pockets with money that should instead go to its people.

Most of these leaders steal our foreign aid and live like millionaires while their people are crushed with abject poverty and have little or no social services.

This is true in all of the Arab nations protesting in the streets throughout the Middle East, these past weeks.

Israeli leaders, however, do not steal our foreign aid; that money goes towards strengthening their military to protect Israel from all of its Arab neighbors who wish it dead.

Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East; all of the other Arab countries are ruled illegally by strongman regimes, military backed religious thugs, repressive and cruel to their own people.

Arab leaders do also steal elections, as they just did in your country, of Iran.

That's why hundreds of protesting Iranians are now being killed in your streets, again, by its regime, every day.

The United States STRONGLY supports the State of Israel.

Israel, unlike the many Islamic fundamentalist nations which surround it, in the Middle East, allows their own women equal rights and practices total freedom of religion .

Arab nations do not allow Jewish synagogues or temples to be built and religiously keep their own women dressed as bee-keepers, chained to very strict rules, roles from the 4th century.

Israel has pride in its blossomed fruit from the desert while Arabs still camp out on sand.

Israel's treatment of "Palestinians" has been terrible, but it is as cruel as Iran treats its own citizens who are now tortured, murdered and locked up for speaking out and for assembling in public, to protest their evil regime..

You cannot take a national wood splinter from someone else's eye, when you have a whole national wooded forest in your own face.

You call what we believe, "all propaganda".

We, like you, surely only know whatever has been told us.

Do we Americans know for a certainty that George Washington was real?

We ONLY know about our own historical history because people have TOLD us so .

We have no direct proof that George Washington was real, except from what others have told us.

So, too, Americans are in danger of being 'brainwashed' by our own propaganda that we read in The New York Times, as you are, within the closed regime of Iran.

Our leaders do tell us only what they want us to hear.

Israel, its back up against the sea, is straddled on all sides by Arabs who are Jew hating, American hating, devoutly religious, believers of Islam.

These fundamentalist believers in Allah and in their Muslim faith, encourage and goad the murder and annihilation of Jews and Americans, as justifiable, from their Koran's religious teachings..

Israeli souls struggle again, against Hitler's demonic promise to exterminate them, but this time from fundamentalist Muslims.

Your Iranian Arab national wish, a religious promise to kill Israel, is burned into the heart of every Jew Israeli who thus cannot see an Arab orchard or Arab house as mere civilian property owned by a private person, but only as a house and orchard of a sworn murderous enemy which stands in front of Israeli bulldozers.

America is slowly learning, that in your eyes, we are also all Jews.

Will Israel bomb Iran's atomic research facilities to stop Iran's atomic research?

It shall but ONLY because Iranian policy publicly swears to work to remove Israel from the world map.

Israel is surrounded; just take a look at that map.

The Arab world's choice to unite behind a uniform non acceptance of the State of Israel, as well as its Muslim taught hatred of Jews and now, Americans, will certainly determine Arab fates more than anything else..

Israel sees itself, as DEFENDING itself, thus NOT doing 'aggression' to "Palestinians" or to other religious fundamentalist Arabs.

Israel is a country at war, with its Arab 'neighbors', as is recently America; both of our nations fight against a common enemy whose Holy Koran's religious teachings promise death to all infidels, not of the Muslim faith.

Just as Israel believes that pigs cannot fly, they believe that " Palestinians" shall not ever take their so-called "home" back, a "home" they have no right to possess as their Holy land..

On this issue, Israel is firm and pointedly asks Muslims:

"You have Mecca; why steal Jerusalem?

It simply isn't yours to have, now, or ever."

Abdul, you continue to reiterate that "Iran is a peace loving and peace practicing nation".

Iran funds and arms worldwide Hezbollah to instill and support terrorist murders of innocents in Jordan and in Gaza.

Iran had also been at war with Iraq, for decades.

Peace loving?

Iran has a virulent leader who states that Israel shall be wiped off the map; is this a policy statement of peace?

Much like North Korea's leader who is shaping North Korea to be warlike and to hate the 'West', Iran also plans to build atom bombs to enforce its national goals of hate.

The free world will not allow this to happen.

The only thing scarier, in America's and Israel's mind, than bombing Iran's (and North Korea's) atomic capabilities, is NOT bombing them.

Israel and America actually look forward to a time when help and rescue can come to you and your people from Iran's regime, a government who murders and tortures its citizens in public streets when they assemble to protest.

Iran's current leader is a thug, a criminal who stole your country's election and thus stole Democracy from all of you.

When your people complained and protested, they were murdered by the thousands.

A nationwide house arrest of all lawyers and all judges then ensued.

Isn't this proof in itself, that "rule of law" means less than nothing, in Iran?

Never think that you are one who can question other nations.

America and Israel both are dedicated and prepared to undermine and dismantle rogue, gangster regimes like Syria, Iran and North Korea, regimes devoted to hatred and to supporting terrorism.

These rogue nations murder innocent people because they are fed on pure hatred and instilled with a national mind set of war.

As such, these rogue nations stand apart from all other nations by their evil intentions.

Israel is America's adopted child and we love it.

Do not think that you can threaten America with such hatred; we are poised on your borders, deep within Iraq.

Think twice before pulling the tail of this tiger; this tiger doesn't run; it turns and faces you.

Call us "violent' ?

Certainly, violence did prove to be good, after all; it WAS violence that was used to defeat a hateful evil Japan and a hateful evil Germany.
If you pull the tail of this tiger, we shall gladly come there and free you from your country of hatred and war; we shall teach you all how to play baseball, much like they now play in Japan and in Germany.

You insist that 'Palestinian Issues' fuel the Arab world to hate us.

Has Israel done awful things to Gaza and West bank Arabs?

Yes, however, these things should hard prove to Iran the singular Israeli resolve to survive; Israel will do similar things to other gangster regimes, like Iran, who also seriously threaten it, like Gaza.

You insist that I, as a person, should be sorry for these awful things.

I am disgusted just as you are, but don't mistake niceness for weakness.

There must be plenty of room within Iran and Saudi Arabia and throughout all of Arab Persia for Muslims to open their arms in welcome, to rescue and nurture these mistreated refugee "Palestinians", to take them into your countries, as the 'brothers', that you call them.

But not one Arab country has yet to do this; why?

Because Arab nations use the Palestinian people as an excuse to justify their own rabid anti Jewish, anti American hatred.

Israel airlifted the whole of an African Ethiopian Jewish population to safety, within its own tiny Israeli borders, when Arabs threatened that population with death.

Shouldn't Iran and the Arab world similarly be responsible for total PLO rescue, if Iran and other Arab nations cared about them, as they pretend to?

Just as with Japan and Germany, in our great war of goodness, against those nations of evil, your nation's choice of national hatred shall more than anything else, determine your ultimate national destiny.

We must all, in the Western World, be eager to police our World, when gangster nations talk murder and prepare atomic weapons to do that murder.
