ARABISM = THE RACISM!

Uruba - unsuriyyah

The wild racist virus on a vicious campaign of burning all non-Arab ethnicities down, main victims include:

Kurds, Jews, Berbers, Persians, Assyrians, Asians, Africans.

Arabism Equals Racism
Some things change, others never will - such as 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.
To be accepted, and not literally exterminated, one must do what Egypt's most successful Copt did - consent to this age-old forced subjugation and Arabization. Dr. Boutros Boutros Ghali became a top official in President Anwar Sadat's government and went on to become Secretary General of the United Nations, as well.
"Uncle Butros" instead of "Uncle Tom".
He also instructed that for it to be accepted, Israel, as an entire country, must consent to being Arabized; like those Kurdish kids in Syrian Kurdistan who are forced today to sing songs praising their "Arab identity" and so forth.

Berber Leader: "There Is No Worse Colonialism Than That of the Pan-Arabist Clan that Wants to Dominate Our People"... just as Islamism did not need us to be born and extend, since it is the result of educational policies installed by Arabist governments ...It is ultimately the Arabism as an imperialist ideology

Pan-Arabism & the professor
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.

'Chemical Ali' sentenced
Ali Hassan al-Majid, a cousin of Saddam's who is known as Chemical Ali, was sentenced to death for a second time Tuesday for his part in crushing a Shiite uprising in 1991.
Mohammed Oraibi al-Khalifa, a judge for the Iraqi High Tribunal, sentenced Majid and other senior figures from Saddam's government.
Among them were Abdelghani Abdul Ghafor al-Ani, who headed Saddam's Baath Party in southern Iraq at the time of the uprising and who also received a death sentence Tuesday. The former defense minister, Sultan Hashim Ahmad al-Tai, received a 15-year prison sentence.
Majid already faces a death sentence for his role in a 1981 crackdown on Kurds in northern Iraq.
Judge Khalifa said Tuesday that Majid was guilty of crimes against humanity.
A lawyer for Majid's defense team said that they would not be able to comment until after an appeal is filed.
Majid remained calm, but his co-defendant Ani shouted: "I welcome death if it is for Iraq, for pan-Arabism and for the Baath. Down with the American and Persian occupation."
The judge told Ani to "shut up." In later remarks to his fellow judges, he was overheard saying: "All the Baathists are this way. Baathists live as Baathists and die as Baathists."

Towards another disaster
By Aso Karim
The Kurdish Globe
Thursday, 04 December 2008, 02:04 EST
Since the Iraqi State has been established under the hands of the English, only the Kurds asked for power-sharing, decentralization, and autonomy, and are now insisting on federalism, democracy, and accordance.
The Arab elite see those demands of the Kurds as separatist and rebellion. In short, Kurds were the makers of change in Iraq, but they couldn't find a large front of change around themselves that can accept part of those demands. As a result they have faced big disasters.
[...]
...of the governing [Arab] elite, according to their ideological and political backgrounds
[...]
The source of that is the very idea of power hunger and centralism that were brought to Iraq by the English in the 1920s, and which was developed by the pan-Arabism movement that was developed in 80 years. This has only brought about disaster.

Iraq and Darfur: Common Roots, Pan-Arabism authorized the enslavement of African Muslims in Saudi Arabia and other Arab states until the mid-1960s, when slavery was abolished due to intense Western pressure. It justified the same horrible practices during the North-South Sudanese civil war. Like Nazism, from which its founders Sami Shawkat and Michel Aflaq drew explicit inspiration, pan-Arabism inevitably leads to violence, conflict, and, where successful, subjugation, because it defines its identity in opposition to the other"the hapless Jew, the black, or the other pariah within its self-proclaimed Lebensraum.

One thing we should do immediately is drop the lazy concept of the Arab street: it means nothing, it doesnt exist. Like most formulations beloved by the left, its 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-Arabisms perversion of traditional Arab fatalism and celebrating their failure. - Mark Steyn

Arabists VS Middle East

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 atrocities committed against Christians, Kurds, Jews, Israelis, Coptic Christians, non-Arab Sudanese, etc.

The race taboo, The existence of racist attitudes within.. Arab countries is often denied, resulting in scandalous displays of prejudice against certain ethnic groups.

[Brian Whitaker guardian.co.uk, Friday 8 September 2006 13.43 BST] Racism is a worldwide phenomenon. In some countries it's met with disapproval, in others with denial. The Arab countries, mostly, fall into the latter category. The A to Z of ethnic and religious groups in the Middle East embraces Alawites, Armenians, Assyrians, Baha'is, Berbers, Chaldeans, Copts, Druzes, Ibadis, Ismailis, Jews, Kurds, Maronites, Sahrawis, Tuareq, Turkmen, Yazidis and Zaidis (by no means an exhaustive list), and yet serious discussion of ethnic/religious diversity and its place in society is a long-standing taboo.

If the existence of non-Arab or non-Muslim groups is acknowledged at all, it is usually only to declare how wonderfully everyone gets along.

Arabists vs. the Middle East
Having done hardly any independent research on the twentieth-century Middle East, Cole's analysis of this era is essentially derivative, echoing the conventional wisdom among Arabists and Orientalists regarding Islamic and Arab history...

Arab nationalists express their views through the use of terrorism, financial incentives and ethnic cleansing.

Ikhwan Cole: Arabism and Islamism... There are Muslim thinkers who meld political Islam and Arabism-- this is common in Egypt, e.g. But they belong to a different religious and intellectual ... Hizbullah, also an Islamist group, has long been using the mixed language of Islam and Arabism, which is why Chuck Freund and I came up with the labels "Pan-Arabist Islam/ism" or "Arabo-centric Islam" (see also Matt Frost, who has an interest in this particular subject. Cf. Lee Smith's old article in Slate, and, Josh Landis' excellent post on the Baath and whether it's "secular"). In fact, speaking of Nasser, that's precisely the sort of image Hassan Nasrallah has been projecting: a Shiite Nasser.
If you take a look at Avi Jorisch's Beacon of Hatred, you'll see in the accompanying DVD-Rom the various propaganda clips on Al-Manar which reach out to the Arabs, as Arabs, often using the term "ummat al-Arab" (the Arab Nation), to combat Israel.

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 didnt discover, doesnt 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 wont 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 womens-liberation movement of the radical Muslim world.

...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.

Pan-Arabism Causes Conflict in the Middle East
by Efraim Karsh
About the author: Efraim Karsh is a professor and director of Mediterranean studies at King's College at the University of London. He is a coauthor of Empires of the Sand: The Struggle for Mastery in the Middle East.
Since its formation in the wake of World War I, the contemporary Middle Eastern system based on territorial states has been under sustained assault. In past years, the foremost challenge to this system came from the doctrine of pan- Arabism (or qawmiya), which sought to eliminate the traces of Western imperialism and unify the Arab nation, and the associated ideology of Greater Syria (or Suriya al-Kubra), which stresses the territorial and historical indivisibility of most of the Fertile Crescent. Today, the leading challenge comes from Islamist notions of a single Muslim community (the umma).
http://www.bookrags.com/researchtopics/the-middle-east/sub4.html

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.

Arabist Indoctrination At Middlebury College...
Later Arab nationalist figures like Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser or Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein found the linguistic definition of Arabism convenient in order to neglect, if not completely reject, the reality of ethnic and cultural diversity in the Middle East. This view--also adopted by a number of social scientists and post-Edward Said Middle East scholars--holds that the Middle East is populated by a breed of culturally and linguistically homogeneous Arabs. Assyrians, Berbers, Copts, Chaldaeans, Kurds, Maronites and many other millions of Middle Eastern peoples who possess their own distinct cultural and historical heritage and who disapprove of their ascribed latter-day Arabness, are nevertheless anointed as Arabs. If they do not embrace their Arabness, they are dismissed as traitors or isolationists.
Robert Kaplan expressed this negative slant against Middle Eastern minorities in the conclusion of his remarkable book The Arabists, which examined the history of State Department experts on the Arab world. These experts, the so-called Arabists, he argued, quoting a U.S. Foreign Service official, "[h]ave not liked Middle Eastern minorities. Arabists have been guilty in the past of loving the majority and the idea of Uruba, which roughly translates as 'Arabism.' I remember once going to a Foreign Service party and hearing people refer to the Maronite Christians in Lebanon as 'fascists.'" Lebanese commentator Michael Young adds, "What pro-Arab Americans couldn't stomach was that the [Middle East's] Christians were often estranged from [¦the Muslims] and from the Arab nationalism the region engendered.

The Middle East... conflicts...

For example:

* the Israel and [so called] "Occupied Territories" (Palestine) issue

* the conflict between Hamas and the Fatah; the Iraq conflict

* the conflict in Afghanistan

* conflicts within Saudi Arabia

* the security concerns, especially the nuclear threat, that Ahmadinajad's Iran poses

* the Kurdish situation with serious discrimination from Turkey, Syria, Iran and Iraq with very limited support from any powers

* the Lebanon conflict

* the rise of Islamic militancy in Egypt and Algeria

* the suppression of any opposition in Saudi Arabia and most of Middle East countries

* the spread of fundamentalist Islam -- Wahabbi style -- and the attempt to suppress any modern civil secular democratic voices in the Middle East region

* and not to forget the problems in Sudan where civilians are being massacred in Darfur by the government and the military.

[...] Islam is at the center of all social order and of the moral and intellectual values of Middle Eastern Muslims. In fact, it is the official religion in most Arab and Islamic countries. Considering Arabism and Islam as synonyms embodies discrimination against various ethnic and religious groups in the Middle East. [...]

Conclusion

Most regimes in Middle East are authoritarian, if not dictatorships, ruling for decades by fear or reward. The elites who rule in Middle East countries used religious faith with ideology of nationalism for blinding people and controlling them ... conflicts in the Middle East all look different, but the real cause root is related to human rights abuses.

Radical Islamic Jihad and pan-Arabism in its violent form find a common root in Amin Al Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.
http://tellthechildrenthetruth.com/amin_en.html

The Mufti, after instigating a pogrom against Jews in Palestine in 1920, the first such pogrom against Jews in the Arab world in hundreds of years, went on to inspire the development of pro-Nazi parties throughout the Arab world including Young Egypt, led by Gamal Abdul Nasser, and the Social Nationalist Party of Syria led by Anton Sa'ada.

During the years 1948-1967, pan-Arab ideologies were the rage of the Muslim world. The Iraqi statesman, ˜Abd al-Rahman al-Bazzaz, a leading proponent of conservative pan-Arabism, likened the position of the Arabs in Islam to that of the Russians in world communism. The radical strain of pan-Arabism, however, became far more influential than its conservative counterpart.

Terrorism: Pan-Arabism and Islam prompting evil.
(Written roughly two months before the September 11 Islamic attacks)
July 17, 2001. A reader's review on "Culture and Imperialism" (by E. Said)
Extracts:
Before E. Said can legitimately condemn Western "domination" of other cultures, he ought to thoroughly examine the ills inflicted by Pan-Arabism and Islam on non-Arabs and non-Muslims throughout the Middle East and world. As mentioned by others, Arabs have subjugated--or all but eliminated--Egypt's Coptic Christians, Algeria and Morocco's Berbers, Sudan's southern Christians, Lebanese Christians and Iraqi Kurds. Then there are the Turkish Armenians. Sudan's Arab government actively pursues genocide and enslavement of Southern Sudan's Black Christians. Meanwhile, the Taliban have imposed Hitlerian restraints on Afghanistan's women and Hindu minority (that regime was eliminated by the US post 911 but Taliban's active aspiration remain the same). In Indonesia, Muslims are willfully murdering thousands of Christians.
Syrian society reviles the idea of peace with the Jewish people, exhorting all children to fight, kill and seek death, with the promise of both material reward for their families and eternal happiness in paradise. School texts inciting racial hatred, religious intolerance and, outright genocide to him seem emblematic of a "fundamentalist rejectionism," "older than the [Israeli] settlements, older than the state of Israel," reflecting the spirit of Jerusalem Grand Mufti Hajj Amin el-Husseini, who during World War II fled to Berlin, blessing Muslim SS arms and "begging Himmler to let him handle his own version of the final solution in Palestine against the Jewish settlers in Haifa, Jaffa and Tel-Aviv."
The constitution of Fateh--the PLO's "national, revolutionary" military wing-- invokes the vision of a Pan-Arab "nation" which would coincidentally eradicate Zionism, Israel and the Jewish people there. A Friday June 6 sermon broadcast live by the PA called for the enslavement of Israel's 5 million Jewish people as Dhimmis. "We welcome the Jews to live as Dhimmis, but the rule in this land and in all the Muslim countries must be the rule of Allah."
In this vein, the Arafat-appointed Jerusalem Mufti on June 29 incited Muslims to prepare "armies to fight the Jews and to remove Israel from Existence" and called for an Islamic Khilafah State, just as he has done in myriad Al Aksa Friday sermons...

Who is Racist in the Middle East - Zionism or Arabism?
http://www.zionism-israel.com/log/archives/00000012.html

The Problem With Darfur's Muslims Is
They're Not Arabs. Like Iraq's Kurds or North Africa's Amazigh (Berbers).
The title of a recent AP news brief read, "EU May Not Heed Darfur Call."
While the European sycophants of medieval Arab oil sheiks, who recently sentenced a gang rape victim to jail and two hundred lashes, have and will be pouring in billions of dollars in aid and such to support the birth of Arab state # 22 ( 2nd, not 1st, Arab one in "Palestine"), predictably, all they mostly have to offer to support victims of out right Arab murder and racism is hot air.
After the Arabs burst out of the Arabian Peninsula in the 7th century C.E. and slaughtered, conquered, 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 non-Arab North Africa, native Jews aligned with "Berbers" to resist this conquest as well.
Back in the '60s when I was starting college, the Arab-Israeli conflict, as usual, never left center stage. After the '67 Six Day War--when Israel turned the tables on the latest Arab attempt on its life big time--Israel lost its status as David to the Arab Goliath for daring to refuse to go silently into the night while the rest of the world once again looked on¦as the latter is doing today with other Arab victims.
At virtually the same time in the '60s, the first modern civil war broke out between the non-Muslim black south and the Arab and Arabized north in the Sudan.
Sudan 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 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."
Arabs habitually refer to most of the region as "purely Arab patrimony"¦the Arab-Israeli and other such conflicts in a nutshell.
The more recent full scale outbreak of violence in the Sudan has an even more revealing twist.
While earlier violence 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 versus black¦regardless of religion. Ditto for Arab versus Kurd, Amazigh, and so forth.
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, the Jew of the Nations, home to whom Arabs call "their" kilab yahud¦Jew dogs.
Think carefully about all the above¦especially in light of the additional bare-the necks-of-your-kids-even- further concessions Israel is expected to next make for the sake of a post-Annapolis "peace (of the grave)" with those still dedicated to its destruction--regardless of what the American President and his Secretary of State shamefully proclaim.

...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).

Arab Nationalism Run Rampant at Middlebury

By Franck Salameh

August 18, 2006

At Middlebury College's Arabic Summer School, where I recently taught Arabic, students were exposed to more than intensive language instruction. Inside the classroom and across campus, administrators and language teachers adhered to a restrictive Arab-nationalist view of what is generically referred to as the "Arab world." In practice, this meant that the Middle East was presented as a mono-cultural, exclusively Arab region. The time-honored presence and deep-rooted histories of tens of millions of Kurds, Assyrians, Copts, Jews, Maronites, and Armenians--all of whom are indigenous Middle Easterners who object to an imputed "supra-Arab" identity--were dismissed in favor of a reductionist, ahistorical Arabist narrative. Those who didn't share this closed view of the Middle East were made to feel like dhimmi--the non-Muslim citizens of some Muslim-ruled lands whose rights are restricted because of their religious beliefs.

Page 88 After the 186 Syrian massacres, the Christians had tried to promote an Arab nationalism... irritated the Muslims... Thanks to the theologians of Al Azhar, the two movements, antagonistic at first, fused into Islamic pan-arabism. Today it is clear that Islam and Arabism, are inseparable terms and that in fact, pan-arabism is synonymous with the cultural social and politica rebirth of Islam... a true Arab must be Muslim. As long as modern Egypt will proclaim itself to be "essentially an Arab and Muslim land" uncertainty will continue to weigh on the Copts, the only remaining native religious minority after the forced departure of eighty thousand Jews.. When Nasser came to power, Egypt resolutely turned its face towards Arabism ...became its staunchest champion and Cairo proclaimed Islamic unity pursued an active policy of pan-arabism which identified Islam with Arabism. The Precarious situation of the minorities became even ore acute. Was it possible to be a Christian and an Arab?

http://books.google.com/books?id=tIfYPppdbeYC&pg=PA89

In maps, textbooks, lectures, and other teaching materials used in the instruction of Arabic, Israel didn't exist, and the overarching watan 'Arabi (Arab fatherland) was substituted for the otherwise diverse and multi-faceted "Middle East." Curious and misleading geographical appellations, such as the "Arabian Gulf" in lieu of the time-honored "Persian Gulf," abounded. Syria's borders with its neighbors were marked "provisional," and Lebanon was referred to as a qutr (or "province") of an imagined Arab supra-state.

Nor was the Arabic school's narrow definition of Middle Eastern culture restricted to the classroom. Alcohol was prohibited during school events and student parties, and although a school official claimed the ban reflected Middlebury's campus policy, beer and wine flowed freely during cookouts and gatherings organized by the German, French, and Spanish schools. Banning alcohol is a matter of Islamic practice and personal interpretation--not accepted behavior throughout the Middle East--and reflected the Arabic school's conflation of Arabic with Islamic.
Similarly, the Arabic school's dining services conformed to the halal dietary restrictions of Islam, an act implying that all Arabic speakers are Muslims, and that all Muslims are observant; yet less that 20 percent of the Arabic school community was Muslim. No such accommodations were made for Jewish students who kept kosher, even though they outnumbered the Muslims.

Arab nationalism was also evident in the school's official posture toward America's national holidays. The Arabic school was alone among Middlebury programs to ignore Fourth of July festivities. Worse, visiting faculty from the Middle East cold-shouldered older students sporting the closely cropped hair, courteous manners, and discipline suggesting membership in the U.S. armed forces. Most students and faculty avoided contact altogether with those dubbed hukuma (government) or jaysh (army).

Such attitudes and practices aren't confined to Middlebury. A former student of mine who recently took a summer Arabic course at Georgetown University relates that one of her professors, an otherwise excellent language instructor, refused to allow the word "Israel" to be uttered in class. And his bigotry wasn't confined to the Jewish state: during a class discussion on nationalism, my former student argued that "many Lebanese did not think of themselves as Arabs." The instructor's response: "while they might say that, it's just politics, because all Lebanese people know on the inside that they are indeed Arabs."

Arabism flies in the face of historical fact. Ethnic minorities in Lebanon, as throughout the Middle East, have suffered at the hands of Arabs since the Arab-Islamic invasions in the early Muslim period. Of the efforts of Arab regimes and their ideological supporters in the West to de-legitimize regional identities other than Arab, Walid Phares, a well-known professor of Middle East studies, has written: "[The] denial of identity of millions of indigenous non-Arab nations can be equated to an organized ethnic cleansing on a politico-cultural level." This tradition of culturally suppressing minorities is the wellspring of the linguistic imperialism regnant at Middlebury's Arabic Summer School.

Yet healthier models for language instruction are easy to find. In the Anglophone world, Americans, Irish, Scots, New Zealanders, Australians, Nigerians, Kenyans, and others are native English-speakers, but not English. Can anyone imagine an English language class in which students are assumed to be Anglican cricket fans who sing "Rule Britannia," post maps showing Her Majesty's empire at its pre-war height, and prefer shepherd's pie and mushy peas? Yet according to the hyper-nationalists who run Middlebury's Arabic language programs, all speakers of Arabic are Arabs--case closed.

A leading Arabic language program shouldn't imbue language instruction with political philosophy. It should instead concentrate on teaching a difficult language well--on promoting linguistic ability, not ideological conformity. Academics should never intellectualize their politics and then peddle them to students under the guise of scholarship. Those who do may force a temporary dhimmitude on their student subjects, but in the end they only marginalize their field and themselves.

This marginalization has never been clearer than it is today, when Middle East studies scholars are depressingly consistent in their condemnation of American policy in the region... Arabist orthodoxy...

Since they caused both at once, the historical synonymity of Islam and Arabism was created, and even if this identification is considered wrong in theological terms, it became the de facto reality. As a Muslim of Indian-Pakistani origins, Fatah sees the blending of Islam and Arabism as the distortion of the former, and his words echo the sense of many non-Arab Muslims that Arabs consider them to be "second-rate" Muslims.

Mr. Paul Kelly, the Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs, noted that "Iraqis of Assyrian, Turkman, and Kurdish ethnicity suffer additional abuses due to the ongoing Arabization' campaign of ethnic cleansing." Noting other abuses including the prohibition of all non-Arab broadcasting and publishing and the forced Arabization of personal names, Mr. Kelly added that "Abuses like these are a long-standing part of the Iraqi government's decade long campaign dedicated to eliminating the non-Arab presence in villages and towns under regime control in northern Iraq."

The Bullets of 'Urubah
"I saw him without a gun, shooting at me, and his bullets pierced me just like all the other bullets." Rashid al-Daif, Passage to Dusk
Two days ago I had a conversation with a Syrian friend, whom I will call Saleem, about the merrits of "Arabist" or Arab nationalist governance. Saleem, being from Syria and having gone through the Ba'thi nationalist school system, for the most part defended the idea that Arabism is positive, particularly for Arabs. "Why shouldn't the Arabs have a country? If we are all Arabs, why should we not all have the same country, like Italy or Spain?" Saleem asked me. My response to this was, What about the people that live with you who are not Arabs? And why should ethnicity be the basis for this "country"? "Because Arabs are one nation!" I was told hotly. "We should be free from outside aggression like Zionism and colonialism," he continued. The last question I was able to ask Saleem was "What do you mean? We are free from those things..., the only aggression is against Arabs by Arab dictators," Saleem's response was, "Better an Arab than a dog for that."

From Nationalism to Fascism to Terror Parallels between Germany and the Arab World

September 4, 2005

by Ray Ibrahim Private Papers

On occasion, one finds a historical pattern that provides a paradigm useful for interpreting contemporary world events. One such paradigm is the almost eerie parallel between Germany's history -- its progress from Nationalism to Fascism and ultimately Terror -- and the recent history of the Arab world.

Nationalism, of course, originated in Europe. But what nationalism came to mean or embody to any particular people varied over time and place, and its articulation had much to do with specific historical circumstances. As a result, two highly antithetical forms of nationalism eventually emerged: the one, rooted in the Enlightenment, was aligned with liberal and "rationalist" thinking; the other, child of Romanticism, came to embody everything primordial: race, "blood," language, culture, and religion. Consider, for example, the different sorts of nationalisms espoused by France and Germany. In France, nationalism was connected with concepts of individual liberty, rational cosmopolitanism, and citizenship. Germany's later nationalism was built almost purely on a sentimental regard for the supposedly heroic past and the mystic blood-ties of the volk.

Thus nations like Germany put more emphasis on the volk than on the citizen, and on the geist, the unique, defining "spirit" of the people, than on civic rights or political structures. According to the 18th-century German philosopher Herder, "Nature produces families; the most natural state therefore is one people [volk] with a natural character. . . . Nothing seems more obviously opposed to the purpose of government than the unnatural enlargement of states, the wild mixing together of different human species and nations under one scepter."

As to why German nationalism developed along these lines, two considerations are important. First, when threatened, a people often find solace by withdrawing into solidarity with others who share a same common background -- racially, linguistically, culturally, theologically, and historically--while viewing all who do not share in these common primordial bonds as the dreaded "Others." Conveniently enough, during the birth of German nationalism, there was in fact another hostile Other -- the French.

Secondly, prior to 1871, the "German nation" was in fact composed of many petty kingdoms and principalities. After the Napoleonic invasions, it became urgent for Germans to define and assert themselves through unification. What better way to find cohesion than falling back on common traditions and values? It is around this time that German history -- or better, Teutonic myth -- came to play a leading role in shaping the national consciousness: Wagnerian operas, based on the heroic Teutonic past, became popular. Historical characters like Arminius, who vanquished the Roman legions in the

Teutoburg Forest in 9A.D., became objects of veneration, if not emulation.

Similarly, Arab nationalism developed along "romantic" lines. After nearly five centuries of foreign rule -- from Ottomans to the Western colonial powers, primarily French and British -- the Arab peoples, in order to find cohesion and identity in the rising world of nation-states, fell back on primordial bonds of kin, religion, shared history, and culture. And just as in Germany, the liberal principles of Enlightenment nationalism came to be inextricably linked with the Arab peoples' oppressors (the French and British), giving the Arabs even more reason to shun "Western" liberal-democratic nationalism as a foreign import, a product of the oppressive Other.

Moreover, again similar to Germany, the so-called "Arab world" was -- and still is -- in reality made up of some 20 different states that needed some ready-made ideology in order to unify quickly. Arab political scientist Bassam Tibi sums this phenomenon well:

Arab nationalism in the colonial period, which persists until the present time, is intellectually related to Italian and German nationalisms, which have been defined by C.J. Hayes as 'counternationalism'. . . . Arab nationalism, once francophile and partly anglophile, changed with the British and French colonisation of the area and became anti-British and anti-French, and germanophile. . . . It [germanophilia] was closely connected with the historical circumstances which influenced Arab nationalism. Furthermore, the germanophilia was narrow and one sided. The German ideology absorbed by the Arab intellectuals at this time was confined to a set of nationalist ideas which had gained particular currency during the period of the Napoleonic Wars [i.e., when the Germans were most threatened by the Other]. These ideas carried notions of romantic irrationalism and a hatred of the French to extremes. They excluded from consideration the philosophers influenced by the Enlightenment . . . on the grounds of what was considered to be their universalism. They were particularly attracted by the notion of the 'People,' [Volk] as defined by German Romanticism, which they proceeded to apply to the Arab nation [emphases added].

Like Herder before them, Arab thinkers came to make similar assertions regarding the concept of the nation. For instance, Sati al-Husri (1882-1968), a very influential political figure, would "praise German Romanticism for having brought about the idea of the nation as distinct from the state, well before the French or British ever did. He then fused the German concept of the nation with the Arabic concept of 'group solidarity' (asabiyya), which he derived from Ibn Khaldun." For al-Husri,

Unity was more than mere blood; there was a spiritual quality as well. Husri did not specify the form of government that could best effect the regeneration of the Arab nation he favored. He did not rule out political dictatorship, was certainly aware of the totalitarian aspects of his thinking, and, like many of his Arab contemporaries, expressed some admiration for fascism. For Husri, freedom did not mean democracy or constitutionalism; it meant national unity. For him, nation (umma) denoted a group of people bound together by mutually recognized ties of language and history. This was distinct in his mind from state (dawla), a sovereign and independent people living on common land within fixed borders. It should be emphasized that umma for Husri was a purely secular entity, not a religious one [emphasis added].

More to the point, many concepts that were embodied in German words and that were central to Germany's nationalism -- Geist and Volk -- had their exact counterparts in Arabic words which also held important connotations for Arab nationalists, e.g.., Ruh (spirit) and Umma. Even today, these concepts are still prevalent in much of Arab political writings. Political scientist Hamid Rabi (d. 1989) "finds the German national school worthy of consideration . . . and admires the way the German thinkers, when faced with the humiliation of the French conquest, delved into their own Teutonic heritage in search of cultural and civilisational roots that raised the Germans' awareness of their national distinctiveness and 'authenticity.'"

Even though Germany and the Arab world have faced similar circumstances, thereby generating similar responses, there is one final element that helped increase radicalization: war, defeat, and humiliation, as experienced by Germany in WWI and the Arab debacle at the hands of the Israelis in 1967, the culmination of Islam's long decline before the rising power of Europe. As a result, both Germany and the Arab world, after experiencing these defeats to their arch-enemies -- their most despised Other -- proceeded to fall into a stricter, more radical mode of primordial nationalist thinking.

Far from abating, German nationalism, after Germany's defeat in 1918 in WWI would become more ossified; race, and all "authentically German" aspects (e.g., culture, history) came to have an even more exaggerated importance to many Germans in defining themselves (again, vis-à-vis the Other). This is when that ever so tenuous line separating nationalism from fascism was crossed. With the rise of the Nazi party, German nationalism went to the extreme: the supposed superiority of the Aryan race (while quite popular during the turn of the century already) became the starting point for the ensuing (and megalomaniacal) German world view. All "non-Aryans" -- gypsies, Slavs, and of course the Jews -- were ostracized or slaughtered; "deviants" (i.e., obviously non true-blooded Germans, such as homosexuals and liberals in general) were also persecuted. All things became black or white, good or bad, right or wrong. A "right" form of "German" conduct was expected from the people. Democracy was nonsense. Women were expected to lead traditional lives, keeping their husbands and families their first priority. Medieval German symbols and even pagan cults dedicated to the dark gods of the Teutoburg Wald (such as Wotan) became commonplace. Indeed, that the Nazi party itself was greatly associated with the swastika -- a historic, Teutonic symbol -- demonstrates the importance that perceived attachments with the past had for the Germans.

An ideal example of the radicalization that Germany experienced is well demonstrated by the life of an average German man who fought in WWI and underwent a profound change -- that is, the Fuhrer himself, Adolf Hitler. The evidence indicates that Hitler had little personal bitterness towards Jews (not withstanding his purported vow of vengeance on the art academy that rejected him and was possibly headed by Jews). Yet after the German defeat of WWI, increasingly to both Hitler and other Germans the Jews became even more singled out as traitors to the Fatherland -- after all, they were not "true" Germans. As for Germanic history/legend, Hitler was a zealous fan: his favorite books were about Teutonic gods and pure German lineages; Wagner's wildly passionate dramas of the heroic and romantic held a special place in his heart. Hitler himself would proclaim, "Any who wish to understand me must first understand Wagner." Thus on the eve of WWII, Germany, once defeated and humiliated a mere two decades ago, stood taller and prouder than ever, with a form of uncompromising and ruthless nationalism.

Based on this brief outline of Germany's overall transformation after their major defeat, many parallels with Arab responses vis-à-vis the continuous Arab defeats to Israel (not to mention recent American humiliations) can be discerned. Again, an enemy Other -- the Jews -- helped shape a people's nationalism. With one disastrous defeat after another -- 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973 (accompanied with extreme humiliation and indignation) -- at the hands of the Jews, many Arabs, far from forfeiting their primordial form of nationalism, have delved deeper into their roots, seeking for elements that are glorious and heroic, and most importantly, that are authentically "Arab" -- and what can be more "authentically" Arab than Islam itself, founded by an Arabian Prophet, revealed in the Arabian tongue, and preaching victory in face of oppression?

In many respects, it is precisely for this reason that there has been an Islamic resurgence in parts of the Arab world: seen by some as the Ruh of the "true" Arab Umma, many Arabs, trying to rationalize why they have fallen from once proud heights, have found the answer in Islam. In their frantic search for identity and cohesion vis-à-vis the Jewish menace, many Arabs find in Islamic fundamentalism the logical conclusion of nationalism, for it provides a divinely sanctioned identity -- and a war commanded by God Himself. Thus out of an already romantic (i.e., fascist) though disaffected nationalism, Islamic Fundamentalism was born.

So even though Islam is a religion, the historic rise of Islamic fundamentalism betrays certain commonalities with the German response of Nazism. And that it is also a religion, gives it more import and legitimacy, as God himself is at the heart of it. The Jew becomes a more pronounced and hence more despised Other: for now he is no longer just a foreign invader; he is also an impious infidel defiling God's holy lands. And just as was the case in Nazi Germany, a greater intolerance for others takes place: non-Muslims are condemned and often persecuted. Right and wrong ossify; conformity to "correct" Islamic conduct is stressed. Deviants such as homosexuals are rooted out. Jihad takes on renewed and urgent importance; talk of the crusades and heroes like Saladin (compare with Arminius) become commonplace. Osama bin Laden et. al. are very fond of musing on and evoking the prowess, dignity, and piety of Islam's forbears -- such as 7th century Khalid, "the Sword of Allah." Women are to return to traditional roles -- husbands and family are prioritized. And, just as symbols of Germany's historic past (e.g., the swastika) played an important role in keeping the link with the glorious and "authentic" past alive, so too do Arab symbols become prominent: beards, turbans, and veils -- back by popular demand -- are to an extent symbolic, evidencing this link to the past.

And so, in certain respects, Islamic fundamentalism is an old phenomenon in a different form. Just as for Germany, wars and wounded egos have produced a vicious backlash in many parts of the Arab world. But these commonalities and shared histories are not only instructive regarding the causes of Nazism and Islamic fundamentalism; perhaps they can also shed some light on how to handle the latter.

From Hitler to the "Arab Reich"

Members of the Muslim Brotherhood would often say prayers for an Axis victory during their meetings. Moreover, some Muslims went so far as to fantasize over putative Islamic affinities of fascist leaders. For example, rumors abounded that Benito Mussolini was an Egyptian Muslim whose real name was Musa Nili (Moses of the Nile) and that Adolf Hitler too had secretly converted to Islam and bore the name Hayder, or "the brave one." (Published in 1987, see Amir Taheri, Holy Terror: Inside the World of Islamic Terrorism, p. 50.)During the 1930s, the Third Reich had received entreaties from the Arab world. After the Nazi government promulgated the Nuremberg Laws in 1936, which greatly diminished the legal citizenship status of Jews, telegrams of support were sent to Hitler from all over the Arab and Islamic world. And Nazi Germany's war against the British Empire next, electrified the Islamic world even more, whose people viewed it as a noble struggle against imperialism. Furthermore, Germany and the Arab world shared the same enemies (England, Zionism, and communism). [...]
Many Arab nationalists looked to Germany for inspiration during the 1930s and 1940s and saw National Socialism as a viable model for state build­ing. Hitler's Mein Kamph found a receptive readership in parts of the Arabic world. Many aspiring Arab leaders sought to emulate the German fuehrer and his National Socialist movement. As far back as 1933, Arab nationalists in Syria and Iraq embraced National Socialism. In Egypt, a protofascist organization, Young Egypt, also known as the Green Shirts, attracted many army offi­cers, The grand mufti is believed to have been instrumental in the group's formation. The Green Shirts went by different official names during its history, including Misf al­Farlit in the 1930s, the Islamic National Party in 1940, and the Socialist Party in 1946. Its leader, Mmed Hussein, also wrote a book in the style of Hitler's Mein Kampf titled Imlini and published a rabidly anti-Semitic journal called al-Ichtirakya. During a visit to New York in the late 1940s, Mmed Hussein, the leader of the Green Shirt Party, addressed a meeting of the extreme right National Renaissance Party (NRP). Kurt Mertig, the NRP's first chairman, hoped to get a post at Cairo University. (Kevin Coogan, Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International, 1999, pp. 380, 387.)

Members of the Green Shirts, including young lieutenant colonel and future Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, along with Wing Commander Hassan Ibrahim and General Aziz al-Masri, attempted to execute a scheme in World War II in which they would link up with Rommel's Afrika Korps and supply them with secret information on British strategy and troop movements.39 the Nazis with the help of the Palestinians also were to exterminate half a million Jews in what is now Israel plus all Jews in Tunisia and Syria. And as detailed in the recent “Wegbereiter der Shoa. Die Waffen-SS, der Kommandostab Reichsführer-SS und die Judenvernichtung 1939 - 1945”-- in 1942, the Nazis created a special "Einsatzgruppe," a mobile SS death squad, which was to carry out the mass slaughter similar to the way they operated in eastern Europe. "Einsatzgruppe Egypt" was standing by in Athens and was ready to disembark for Palestine in the summer of 1942, attached to the "Afrika Korps." Although hopes of a pan-German and pan-Arab alliance would be dashed with the defeat of Rommel, his early military successes gained admiration from the Arab population and as we will see in part 2 of this new 4 part series, this endured after the war.

The Fascist regime had him proclaimed a "hero of Islam" and "defender of Islam" in Italian Libya, where a parallel Libyan Arab Fascist Party was created. If Mussolini supported Zionists to some extent as a lever against the British Empire, both he and Hitler subsidized Haj Amin el Husseini, the violently anti-Jewish grand mufti of Jerusalem. Anti-Jewish feeling mounted in parts of the Middle East during the 1930s, as the Fascist and Nazi regimes and doctrines made increasing sense to many Arab nationalists. King Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia sought German arms and contacts and was favorably received. Various delegations of Syrians and Iraqis attended the Niirnberg party congresses, and there were several different Arabic translations of Mein Kampf. Both the German and Italian regimes were active in propaganda in the Arab world, and there was much pro-German sentiment in Egypt.

Palestinian Arab leaders derive legitimacy from the accepted view that in 1948 their predecessors fought a National Liberation war against British-backed Jewish colonists. A 1948 Nation magazine study proves the opposite happened.

Eye-opening Memorandum

1948 Report to the UN Explodes the PLO's Myth of National Liberation by Jared Israel

[...]

The 1948 Arab-Israeli war plays a key part in the Arab National Liberation tale. The Israeli victory in that war is presented as the defining event, the nakba or catastrophe. In order to claim that the PLO and Fatah are fighting for National Liberation in 2005, their promoters argue that British imperialism, using Jewish proxies, crushed Palestinian Liberation in 1948. The corollary: if the Jews will just grant Arabs the National Liberation they were denied in '48, Arab leaders will deliver on peace with Israel.

Of course, if this story is false, if in 1948 the Arab armies fought for genocide, not National Liberation, and if it was not the Jews but Arab leaders who were agents of imperial Britain, then it certainly suggests that their protégés are not fighting for National Liberation today.

Below is our text transcription of The Nation magazine's 1948 memorandum on Britain's role in the Arab attempt to kill Israel in the cradle. Based on British intelligence documents and written for the United Nations, the memorandum is significant today because it contradicts widely held views about the origins of the Arab-Israeli conflict, including those put forward in today's Nation magazine.

Just for starters, the memorandum proves the falsity of the common perception that the creation of Israel was a project of Western colonialism. The Nation shows that during the half year prior to the all-out Arab invasion on 15 May, Britain incited, micro-managed and did public relations work for a campaign of Arab troop infiltration and terror. And this at a time when Britain was responsible for security in its Palestine Mandate territory.

The intelligence documents cited below show that before the 15 May invasion, British intelligence knew that the Arabs terrorizing the future Israel were being led in part by Nazi advisers. These included Bosnian Muslims from the infamous Handzar Division of the Waffen SS. According to a French intelligence document published by The Nation seven months later, the British sent thousands of Nazi prisoners of war, including top war criminals, to assist the Arab attack. This was after the Arab invasion.

Consistent with British tolerance for and apparent employment of Nazi war criminals against new-born Israel, the Nation memorandum shows that the British adopted a propaganda line reminiscent of the Nazis' "Jewish-Bolshevik plot" motif. The British accused Jewish Holocaust survivors trying to get to Palestine of being Soviet Communist infiltrators. A 1948 article in the London Times shows that Arab leaders were saying the same thing...

In Search of Truth: The Rise of Arab Nationalism Specifically, we are going to examine the parallels between the new Arab/Muslim nationalism and fascist German nationalism (Nazism). ...

they were able to overpower the "good Germans" and forces of civility and justice in Germany via a mixture of propaganda, lies, terror, and playing on past hurts and weaknesses in the German character. Some people the Nazis silenced by beatings and muggings at the hands of Ernst Roehm's SA (storm-trooper) thugs (Roehm was subsequently killed by Himmler's SS). Other's such as Von Pappen and President Hindenburg, who were very refined Old World diplomats and generals, were deceived into appointing Hitler as Chancellor to be a figure of law and order -- when in truth he was the force behind the street violence of the SA and SS.

Joseph Goebbels was Hitler's master propagandist. Using the medium of radio and motion pictures, he crafted some of the most compelling propaganda theater of all time. Weaving together myths about the German Teutonic past, as well as exploiting traditional German xenophobia and anti-Semitism, he must be seen as one of the major fertilizing agents [manure] in allowing Nazism to take hold. ...

Similar parallels exist in modern Arab and Muslim nationalism. Arab propagandists have a rich soil for spreading their lies. There are fears in the Arab and Muslim world about being swallowed in permissive secular western culture and about loss of identity. This is coupled with a deep sense of history and awareness of the fall of the Arab/Muslim world from its dominant position to one of subservience to the West. The Arab world, like the pre-war German world, is searching for a banner and champion to restore its lost pride and identity. The Arab propagandists are also aware of historic Arab and Muslim anti-Semitism, as well as the mythology of Jihad and its usefulness in mobilizing Arab xenophobia.

Today, in the Palestinian controlled areas, massive amounts of money are being poured into hate propaganda for television, the web, and the newspapers.

The Muslim Brotherhood, Nazis and Al-Qaeda  
By John Loftus
Monday, October 04, 2004
 
It always seems a little strange to have an Irish-Catholic talking about Yom Ha Shoah.
 
...I'm educating a new generation in the CIA that the Muslim Brotherhood was a fascist organization...  that evolved over time into what we today know as al-Qaeda.
 
Here's how the story began. In the 1920's there was a young Egyptian named al Bana. And al Bana formed this nationalist group called the Muslim Brotherhood. Al Bana was a devout admirer of Adolph Hitler and wrote to him frequently. So persistent was he in his admiration of the new Nazi Party that in the 1930's, al-Bana and the Muslim Brotherhood became a secret arm of Nazi intelligence.
 
The Arab Nazis had much in common with the new Nazi doctrines. They hated Jews; they hated democracy; and they hated the Western culture. It became the official policy of the Third Reich to secretly develop the Muslim Brotherhood as the fifth Parliament, an army inside Egypt.
 
When war broke out, the Muslim Brotherhood promised in writing that they would rise up and help General Rommell and make sure that no English or American soldier was left alive in Cairo or Alexandria.
 
The Muslim Brotherhood began to expand in scope and influence during World War II. They even had a Palestinian section headed by the grand Mufti of Jerusalem, one of the great bigots of all time. Here, too, was a man -- The grand Mufti of Jerusalem was the Muslim Brotherhood representative for Palestine. These were undoubtedly Arab Nazis. The Grand Mufti, for example, went to Germany during the war and helped recruit an international SS division of Arab Nazis. They based it in Croatia and called it the "Handjar" Muslim Division, but it was to become the core of Hitler's new army of Arab fascists that would conquer the Arab peninsula from then on to Africa -- grand dreams.
 
At the end of World War II, the Muslim Brotherhood was wanted for war crimes. Their German intelligence handlers were captured in Cairo. The whole net was rolled up by the British Secret Service. Then a horrible thing happened.
 
Instead of prosecuting the Nazis -- the Muslim Brotherhood -- the British government hired them. They brought all the fugitive Nazi war criminals of Arab and Muslim descent into Egypt, and for three years they were trained on a special mission. The British Secret Service wanted to use the fascists of the Muslim Brotherhood to strike down the infant state of Israel in 1948. Only a few people in the Mossad know this, but many of the members of the Arab Armies and terrorist groups that tried to strangle the infant State of Israel were the Arab Nazis of the Muslim Brotherhood.
 
Britain was not alone. The French intelligence service cooperated by releasing the Grand Mufti and smuggling him to Egypt, so all of the Arab Nazis came together. So, from 1945 to 1948, the British Secret Service protected every Arab Nazi they could, but they failed to quash the State of Israel.
 
What the British did then, they sold the Arab Nazis to the predecessor of what became the CIA. It may sound stupid; it may sound evil, but it did happen. The idea was that we were going to use the Arab Nazis in the Middle East as a counterweight to the Arab communists. Just as the Soviet Union was funding Arab communists, we would fund the Arab Nazis to fight against. And lots of secret classes took place. We kept the Muslim Brotherhood on our payroll.
 
But the Egyptians became nervous. Nasser ordered all of the Muslim Brotherhood out of Egypt or be imprisoned, and we would execute them all. During the 1950's, the CIA evacuated the Nazis of the Muslim Brotherhood to Saudi Arabia. Now when they arrived in Saudi Arabia, some of the leading lights of the Muslim Brotherhood like Azzam, became the teachers in the Madrasas, the religious schools. And there they combined the doctrines of Nazism with this weird Islamic cult, Wahhabiism.
 
Everyone thinks that Islam is this fanatical religion, but it is not. They think that Islam -- the Saudi version of Islam -- is typical, but it's not. The Wahhabi cult was condemned as a heresy more than 60 times by the Muslim nations. But when the Saudis got wealthy, they bought a lot of silence. This is a very harsh cult. The Wahhabiism was only practiced by two nations, the Taliban and Saudi Arabia. That's how extreme it is. It really has nothing to do with Islam. Islam is a very peaceful and tolerant religion. It has always had good relationships with the Jews for the first thousand years of its existence.
 
For the Saudis, there was a ruler in charge of Saudi Arabia, and they were the new home of the Muslim Brotherhood, and fascism and extremism were mingled in these schools. And there was a young student who paid attention - - and Azzam's student was named Osama Bin Ladin. Osama Bin Ladin was taught by the Nazis of the Muslim Brotherhood who had emigrated to Saudi Arabia.
 
In 1979 the CIA decided to take the Arab Nazis out of cold storage. The Russians had invaded Afghanistan, so we told the Saudis that we would fund them if they would bring all of the Arab Nazis together and ship them off to Afghanistan to fight the Russians. We had to rename them. We couldn't call them the Muslim Brotherhood because that was too sensitive a name. Its Nazi cast was too known. So we called them the Maktab al Khidimat il Mujahideen, the MAK.
 
And the CIA lied to Congress and said they didn't know who was on the payroll in Afghanistan, except the Saudis. But it was not true. A small section CIA knew perfectly well that we had once again hired the Arab Nazis and that we were using them to fight our secret wars.
 
Azzam and his assistant, Osama Bin Ladin, rose to some prominence from 1979 to '89, and they won the war. They drove the Russians out of Afghanistan. Our CIA said, "We won, let's go home!" and we left this army of Arab fascists in the field of Afghanistan.
 
Saudis didn't want to come back. Saudis started paying bribes to Osama Bin Ladin and his followers to stay out of Saudi Arabia. Now the MAK split in half. Azzam was mysteriously assassinated apparently by Osama Bin Ladin himself. The radical group -- the most radical of the merge of the Arab fascists and religious extremists -- Osama called that al Qaeda. But to this day there are branches of the Muslim Brotherhood all through al Qaeda.
 
Osama Bin Ladin's second in command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, came from the Egyptian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the results of a Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
 
There are many flavors and branches, but they are all Muslim Brotherhoods. There is one in Israel. The organization you know as "Hammas" is actually a secret chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood. When Israel assassinated Sheik Yassin a month ago, the Muslim Brotherhood published his obituary in a Cairo newspaper in Arabic and revealed that he was actually the secret leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza.
 
So the Muslim Brotherhood became this poison that spread throughout the Middle East and on 9/11, it began to spread around the world.

The Muslim Brotherhood
The situation in Germany is particularly telling. More than anywhere else in Europe, the Muslim Brotherhood in Germany has gained significant power and political acceptance. Islamist organizations in other European countries now consciously follow the model pioneered by their German peers.
 
During the 1950s and 1960s, thousands of Muslim students left the Middle East to study at German universities, drawn not only by the German institutions' technical reputations but also by a desire to escape repressive regimes. Egyptian ruler Gamal Abdel Nasser's regime was especially vigorous in its attempts to root out the Islamist opposition. Beginning in 1954, several members of the Muslim Brotherhood fled Egypt to escape arrest or assassination. West Germany provided a welcome refuge. Bonn's motivations were not simply altruistic. As terrorism expert Khalid Durán explained in his studies on jihadism in Europe, the West German government had decided to cut diplomatic relations with countries that recognized East Germany.
When Egypt and Syria established diplomatic relations with the communist government, Bonn decided to welcome Syrian and Egyptian political refugees. Often, these dissidents were Islamists. Many members of the Muslim Brotherhood were already familiar with Germany. Several had cooperated with the Nazis before and during World War II. Some had even, reportedly, fought in the infamous Bosnian Handschar division of the Schutzstaffel (SS).]

The Swastika and the Crescent
Muslim and Neo-Nazi extremists unite
 
ESSAY - May 2002
 
By Martin A. Lee
 
...Ahmed Huber: Neo-Nazi, Islamic convert...
 
The roots of the Muslim Brotherhood and, in many ways, the Nazi-Muslim axis go back to the organisation's formation in Egypt in 1928. Marking the start of modern political "Islamic fundamentalism," the Brotherhood from the outset envisioned a time when an Islamic state would prevail in Egypt and other Arab countries. The growth of the Muslim Brotherhood coincided with the rise of fascist movements in Europe - a parallel noted by Muhammad Sa'id al-'Ashmawy, former chief justice of Egypt's High Criminal Court, who decried "the perversion of Islam" and "the fascistic ideology" that infuses the world view of the Brothers.
 
Youssef Nada, current board chairman of Al Taqwa, had joined the armed branch of the Muslim Brotherhood as a young man in Egypt during World War II. Nada and several of his cohorts in the Sunni Muslim fraternity were recruited by German military intelligence. Hassan al-Banna, the Egyptian schoolteacher who founded the Muslim Brotherhood, also collaborated with spies of the Third Reich.
 
Advocating a pan-Islamic insurgency in British-controlled Palestine, the Brotherhood proclaimed their support for the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, in the late 1930s. The Grand Mufti, the preeminent religious figure among Palestinian Muslims, was the most notable Arab leader to seek an alliance with Nazi Germany.
 
Although he loathed Arabs (he once described them as "lacquered half-apes who ought to be whipped"), Hitler understood that he and the Mufti shared the same rivals - the British, the Jews and the Communists. They met in Berlin, where the Mufti lived in exile during the war. The Mufti agreed to help organise a special Muslim division of the Waffen SS. Powerful radio transmitters were put at the Mufti's disposal so that his pro-Axis propaganda could be heard throughout the Arab world.

Islam, Nazism, and Totalitarianism

During an interview conducted in the late 1930s (published in 1939), Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychiatry, was asked “…had he any views on what was likely to be the next step in religious development?” Jung replied, in reference to the Nazi fervor that had gripped Germany

We do not know whether Hitler is going to found a new Islam. He is already on the way; he is like Muhammad. The emotion in Germany is Islamic; warlike and Islamic. They are all drunk with wild god. That can be the historic future. 

Albert Speer, who was Hitler's Minister of Armaments and War Production, wrote a contrite memoir of his World War II experiences while serving a 20-year prison sentence imposed by the Nuremberg tribunal. Speer's narrative includes this discussion, which captures Hitler's racist views of Arabs on the one hand, and his effusive praise for Islam on the other:
 
Hitler had been much impressed by a scrap of history he had learned from a delegation of distinguished Arabs. When the Mohammedans attempted to penetrate beyond France into Central Europe during the eighth century, his visitors had told him, they had been driven back at the Battle of Tours. Had the Arabs won this battle, the world would be Mohammedan today. For theirs was a religion that believed in spreading the faith by the sword and subjugating all nations to that faith. Such a creed was perfectly suited to the Germanic temperament. Hitler said that the conquering Arabs, because of their racial inferiority, would in the long run have been unable to contend with the harsher climate and conditions of the country. They could not have kept down the more vigorous natives, so that ultimately not Arabs but Islamized Germans could have stood at the head of this Mohammedan Empire. Hitler usually concluded this historical speculation by remarking, "You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?"

TOTALITARIANISM IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD
 
THE INFLUENCE OF NAZI GERMANY
 
In the 1930s the rise of National Socialism in Germany attracted the attention of numerous Arab intellectuals and political figures who sought to free the Middle East from British and French colonial rule.  Nazi Germany represented to Arab nationalists (sometimes referred to as "Arabists") a world-class power and potential ally to have in fighting against Great Britain and France.  More importantly, perhaps, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party demonstrated the potential of a nationalist movement based upon a unifying ideology.  For despite having been weakened by defeat in World War I, Hitler and his party had been able to free Germany from the limitations of the Versailles Treaty.  Nazism also had fostered a rise in the national spirit of Germany from the chaos and shame of the 1920s.  To many Arab leaders and thinkers, cultivating an Arab national spirit was a prerequisite to throwing off the shackles of European imperialism.

Abdul Rahman al-Rashed is the general manager of the all-news Arab satellite channel Al Arabiya... The sort of Sunni Arab supremacism you are referring to did not exist at the time of the Arab Revolt, in which Arabic language, not sect, was the determining factor. What went wrong comes later, from the 1930s on, with some Arab Nationalists adopting the European Fascist mentality of exclusivity. Nazism, tragically, had much influence on Arab intellectuals.

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..."

The Syria-Iran Alliance

by Tony Badran inFocus Spring 2009

...Today, Syrian officials, including Bashar al-Assad, routinely talk about Arabism and Islam as twin pillars of strength. The product of this amalgam can be seen in the discourse of Hezbollah, which is sponsored both by Damascus and Tehran. Hezbollah reinforces this ideological marriage by marketing its brand of "resistance" to the broader Sunni Arab world via al-Manar television and other sophisticated public relations outlets. The group's narrative of "resistance" is today the common ideological banner of the Syrian-Iranian axis.

...As the discussion of "democratization" of the Middle East continues, an important point that must be made time and time again, is the importance in building structures that liberate the minorities of the region from oppression. Non-Arab and Non-Muslim minorities live throughout North Africa and the Middle East. Contrary to the propaganda that the region is Arab/Muslim, these minorities are remnants of the indigenous peoples, before the great Arab imperialist wars of the 7th century, and "Islamicization process" that followed. Non-Arab Muslims like the Kurds in Iraq, Syria, Turkey, and Iran; the Berbers - known as Amazighes - in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya, have all resisted "Arabization" for over 1,000 years. Non-Muslims like the Assyrian Christians in Iraq - who argue that they are not Arabs - the Copts in Egypt, Christian Lebanese - many who claim not to be Arab but Phoenician - the Christians in Sudan, and other Christians throughout the region, have been persecuted minorities, since the rise of Islam. Others like the Druze and Jews have also been persecuted by Arab/Muslim regimes throughout history. And we can now see, from the recent Sunni terror attacks on Shiites in Iraq - and Bin Laden's recent statements that Shiites are heretics - that even some Muslims - Shiites and other non-Sunnis - are persecuted minorities in parts of the Middle East.

Only Israel, the Jewish State, has fully liberated itself - in the political sense - from this Arab/Muslim oppression, although it still suffers from physical violence against her people...

Arabization of Africa, and Its Killing Fields - by Bankie F. Bankie

March 27, 2009

  • We Will Islamize America and Arabize Africa - Dr Hassan Abdallah Turabi from Darfur, Sudan

The whittling away of the remains of settler colonialism is proceeding with the increased development of Southern Africa. There is no parallel process of decolonisation in the Afro-Arab Borderlands, rather an internationally co-ordinated aggressive action is underway, to coral the Sudan liberation movements in places such as Darfur and in eastern Sudan, into a peace 'laager', with the generous dispensation of petro-dollars.

Given that the area of 'ambiguous relations'(i.e. the Afro-Arab Borderlands) has been pushed southwards into the Sudan as a result of hundreds of years of interaction, it would be illogical to expect such a process of encroachment to stop from one moment to the other.

The push southwards by the same forces in the West African region, explains the tensions in the Ivory Coast, and the generalised fighting which took place in Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Charles Taylor and Foday Sankor were trained in warfare and met in Libya.

It was Turabi, who exercised power in the first half of current Sudan President Bashir's rule, who pursued a deliberate policy of implanting Islam in north America, whilst Arabization was spearheaded in Africa.

It was Turabi who sent some two thousand post-graduate northern Sudanese students to the US with instructions to form friendships with African Americans. Many of these graduates are now in the public service of Sudan.

As it happens, the Nation of Islam, led by Louis Farrakan in the USA, grouping Black Muslims in north America, has pursued a policy of support for the Khartoum regime, having taken material assistance from Khartoum.

Farrakan has gone so far as to say there is no slavery in Sudan, opposing the Writ issue against Bashir. This has affected African-American understanding and concerns about matters in Sudan. So that those demonstrating in the US against genocide in Darfur have been noticeably white.

In Africa, Arabization proceeds apace and now endangers African overall security. This we see in Somalia, where Sharia Law is being introduced.

Whereas Somalia has long been Islamic, it always was a united entity, before the collapse brought on by its last military ruler Siad Barre. It had one language and an African culture. This is now being changed. It will not stop in Somalia. Arabization will be pushed further south deep into Black Africa.

Arabia has used the so called 'peace pact' to its advantage, as a strategy to relentlessly push its influence southwards. It was used effectively by the Lord Resistance Army (LRA).

Like with the UNITA movement of Jonas Savimbi in Angola, the tactical use of the temporary cessation of hostilities, to lull the opposition into a non-combative posture, creating a breathing space, whilst restocking and preparing for the next offensive, is as old as time itself. Such ceasefires do not last.

The attempts by certain quarters to withhold the Writ to be issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Joseph Kony of the LRA, defeated the ends of justice and permitted him to relocate from south Sudan to the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the bloody costs of the Congolese and the people of the Central African Republic.

This relocation needs further investigation. There was a time before 2005 and the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), between the Khartoum government and south Sudan, when Kony lived in Juba, which was then a garrison town controlled by Khartoum, under the protection of the Bashir government in Khartoum. Who is to say that Kony is still not financed by Khartoum?

The relentless push southwards by Arabia has never abated -- indeed some westerners would say that the major new pre-occupation in international relations at the turn of the century was the global Jihad, which emerged as a counterpoint to the existence of Israel, spreading outside of the Middle East and African theatres, to terrorise the world.

In Africa, current developments in Somalia are cause for sober reflection. Whereas the Somalis in their majority are Muslims, Somalia was known, before the current difficulties, as an integrated society, with one culture and one language, Somali.

What is unfolding, under the noses of the African Union (AU) Peacekeepers, is the annexation of Somalia into the Arab League, Arabia and the Arabian zone of influence -- that is the Arabization of Somalia.

Such annexation is precisely what the south of Sudan fought against for some 39 years.

The question is, will Africa south of the Sahara, on this occasion, yet again, be compliant, watching this process without registering protest?

The current Libyan 'King of Kings' of the AU, can hardly be expected to intervene in such an issue, going on his past record of intervention in places such as Tchad and Sudan. The supreme dilemma of Chairman Ping of the AU must be, what to tell the peacekeepers in Somalia, is their mission.

Apart from maintaining the peace, why are the belligerents fighting, why are they (peacekeepers) being attacked? What is the root cause of the conflict in the country? History teaches us that soldiers, at the cost of their lives, always return home to inform what were the stakes in the fighting. Usually this has a radicalising impact on the home population.

The era of denial about the truths of the Borderlands is over. If the lessons were not learnt through the history, the contemporary period is littered with case studies in southern Sudan and Darfur, not to mention northern Tchad (Tibesti), northern Niger, northern Mali, Mauritania and now Somalia. The lid can no longer be kept on. The truth is out.

The inquiries of the ICC into mass murder in the Borderlands creates the precedent, which changes the equation in the area. The attempted elimination of the Fur, the Masalit and the Zaghawa ethnic groups of Darfur is an exercise in ethnic cleansing, in the pursuit of demographic change, in order to Arabize Darfur. A similar project was run in south Sudan for some 39 years and is also now underway, which has received scant attention, in Nubia, northern Sudan, where millions are affected.

In Nubia, the intent of Khartoum is to move the Black Nubians off their lands and to resettle them elsewhere, whilst bringing in millions of Egyptian peasants, for settlement.

The purpose of all these operations is to ultimately make Sudan an Arab country, in terms of its majority population. This initiative has been on, in surges, for a millennium. Having failed to conquer south Sudan, the Arabist/Islamist global force, the same operating in Afghanistan, is moving to annex Somalia.

After Somalia they will move further southwards. Some are saying they will thereafter target central Africa.

In this connection it is worth recounting the words of Joseph Lagu, the south Sudanese Anya-nya leader, on page 339 of his book 'Sudan odyssey through a state - From ruin to hope', a 2006 publication. Concerning his interaction with Col Muamar Gaddafi during an official Sudanese visit to Libya in 1975, he recounts:

'He (Col Gaddafi) told us that other Arab leaders and he would like to develop Southern Sudan, but for that to be possible we should allow the South to be Islamised and Arabised. He said that he did not mean that we leaders should change our religion, for he knew we were already Christians. He said he referred to those without religious affiliation that formed the bulk of the population. He told us that for him to get Arab funds for the development of the South, he needed to tell the Arabs that Southern leaders accepted the Islamisation of the South. He made it clear to us that Arabs consider their aid to other people in that perspective'.

In effect what is being posited here is that there can be no peace in the Borderlands, without a structural change in Afro-Arab relations and that such a realignment must incorporate not only the admission of guilt but also atonement.

There cannot be closure without an opening by the wrong-doer, to enable review and judgement. These are prima facie requirements to begin the Afro-Arab civilisation dialogue. Without atonement space is created for Great Power intervention in the Sahel.

Slavery has existed in all the ancient civilizations[...].

With both Arab and European slavery, Africans were not the machines, but the cogs in a process whose outcome was unknown to them. The denial of their languages and cultures in effect denationalised the Africans, turning them into assimilados and Black Arabs.

However, in Arabia Black Muslims are not accorded the same status as pure Arabs. They are referred, even in Mecca during the Haj, as 'abed', meaning slave. Whereas in the western world the human rights concept has made possible an Obama, in Arabia such a phenomenon, of a Black president is inconceivable, such is the level of racism.

In Arabia and amongst Arabs, anti-Black racism is a fact of life, be it in Libya or in Egypt. So that Africans, who, by colonial design, are ruled by Arabs, as is the case in south Sudan and Mauritania, for example, are the subjects of an apartheid system which is even more oppressive, due to Arabia's lack of enlightenment, than the racist system which was in place in southern Africa.

All need to take cognizance of this fact, especially those concerned with human rights issues. It is only today that the moral guardians, in places such as the Hague, have steered themselves to scrutinize what is an historic reality known by all who live in the Borderlands, that over centuries Africans have been the targets of genocide and slavery in the Borderlands, otherwise known as the 'killing fields' for Africans, because historically speaking, that is what the Sahel has been.

It was not a melting pot, but an area of agony, sorrow, distress and death as slave convoys walked northwards to their fate. The truths of this area are now exposed in the mass slaughter perpetrated in south Sudan, Darfur and elsewhere.

Northern Sudanese, who pride themselves as being Arabs, more Arab than the Arabs of the Middle East, are considered second class Arabs in Arabia, because of their dark pigmentation. Northern Sudanese such as President Bashir of Sudan would have been classified, in the Southern African context, as 'coloureds'. They are a mixture of Arab and African.

Indeed, Bashir is a Falata, that is a northern Sudanese of Nigerian Fulani extraction.

It needs to be said that since the time of the establishment of Islam in Mecca in present day Saudi Arabia, pilgrims from west Africa, particularly from Nigeria, have been passing through northern Sudan on their way to Mecca. Many stayed on in the Holy Lands. Many also settled in northern Sudan.

The historical links between northern Sudan and Nigeria are umbilical, such that Nigeria cannot be indifferent to developments in Sudan in general. It goes further than that. There are ties of kinship between the Hausa/Fulani of Nigeria and the people of Darfur traced back over hundreds of years.

Due to Islam/Arabization and Sudan's strategic location on the Nile, the northern Sudanese have taken on a persona, especially under the leadership of Bashir's National Islamic Front (NIF)/National Congress Party (NCP), of being the guardians of Arab hegemony in the eastern Sahel and of being more Arab than the Arabs of the Middle East, despite their second class status in Arabia.

Logically, it could be analysed that the northern Sudanese act as the advance guard, to protect and push forward Arab and Islamic interests into east Africa.

In that cause they have and continue to be the guardians of Arab interests in Africa, on which basis they obtain the support of Arab interests and finance worldwide.

One of the principal executioners in the promotion of this policy is Salah Gosh, Head of Sudan's National Security and Intelligence Service, who recently told an audience celebrating his promotion to Field Marshal: ' We (the government) were Islamic extremist then became moderate and civilized believing in peace and life for everyone.

"However we will revert back ( if the Writ of the ICC is issued against President Bashir ) to how we were if necessary."

He continued:

'Anyone who attempts to put his hand to execute (ICC) plans we will cut his hands, head and parts because it is a non-negotiable issue.'

The Sudanese scholar Yusuf Fadl Hassan 'On the historical roots of Afro-Arab relations' stated in 'The Arabs and Africa' (1985):

'Slavery is slavery and cannot be beautified by cosmetics. It left an extreme bitterness in the central parts of the [African] continent against the Arab minority which lived on the coast. Because this issue disturbs Afro-Arab relations it should be studied courageously and objectively'.

Arab-led slavery of Africans in the past and in the present goes to the core of the relationship of Africans with Arabs, it is an issue that both Africans and Arabs frequently treat as a matter to be hushed up because of the embarrassing reaction it generates...

THE ROLE OF ARAB-ISLAMIC ELITE IN MATTERS OF WAR AND PEACE: NORTH-SOUTH RELATIONSHIP-Conclusions By Charles Deng 6/25/2005

...The Arab-Islamic elite holds the view that it has a messianic mission to Islamize and arabize the South Sudan, in particular, and Africa, in general. The battle cry of the Arab-Islamic elite is total and comprehensive arbization and islamization of the South, and hence South becoming a stepping-stone into Africa. Our northern brothers have promised their Arabs "kinsmen", to arabized and Islamize the South, and a lot of petrodollars have gone into this project, but with no success.

This has been the solution adopted by the ruling and non-ruling Arab-Islamic elite to the problem of diversity in the Sudan. In an interview with al-Sayyad, a weekly Lebanese magazine 1988, the Islamic ideologue, al-Turabi said: "it was our destiny that we (meaning the so-called Arabs) have been tested (perhaps, by God) with a complex structured country, almost representative of African peoples, with its languages, ethnicities, and traditions". Diversity, which sensible people would consider as a source of power and admiration, becomes, in the view of al-Turabi, a trial by God. In a lecture in one of the Gulf emirates, titled "The Future of Islam and Arabism in Sudan" (Mustagbl al-Islam wa al Arouba fi Sudan), al-Sadig al-Mahdi proposed forcible Arabization and Islamization of Southern Sudan. The implementation of this project required Ghazi Salah Atabani to shout at the SPLM/A delegation and IGAD diplomats during peace talks in 1997 that southerners "would neither get secularism nor independence" and that "the Sudan's mission was to islamize Africa". It also required the philosopher of political Islam Abdel Wahab El-Effendi to admit that South can go its separate way, but the problem was the "Heathen jungles of Africa".

Regardless of what the northern Arabs thought or planned for the country, southerners have had different ideas about the Sudan. No dignified people (and southerners are dignified people, even if the Arabs may think otherwise) could allow others to copy them like the sheep dolly. Southerners decided that they were not going to sit on their hands, blaming colonial inequities in their country or blaming invisible enemies, but to resist the new masters, while making the statement that there are better ways to govern a country in the size of a continent like the Sudan. Southern politicians made it abundantly clear that if such Sudan cannot be achieved, the partition of the country would be more justified and sensible. Over the last fifty years, the north has refused equality of the citizens of Sudan or the partition of the country. During this period millions of lives have been lost, precious and scarce resources have been wasted and the country has lost forever the opportunity of being the pioneer of diversity in Africa, a source of strength. Northerners who belong to political Islam (NIF and Umma Party of al-Sadig al-Mahdi) think that they are culturally superior and entitled to rule, and that God Himself has sanctioned their superiority through Islam. While those who belong to Arab nationalism (SCP, Baathists, Nasser followers) think that they are culturally superior and entitled to rule, and Arabic language has sanctioned that superiority.

'The Foundation for Constitutional Democracy' - Democratizing Islam ... In short, Arabic, which supplanted Latin, Greek, and other languages, made the Arab-Islamic Empire possible. It not only endowed Arabs with their sense of superiority, but it also heightened their aggressive and imperialistic ambitions vis-à-vis non-Muslim nations. Bearing this in mind, let us turn to Turkey.

Some eighty years ago, Kemel Ataturk revolutionized Turkey, a non-Arab but Muslim regime, once the heart of the Ottoman Empire. Ataturk removed Arabic from public life in Turkey, especially from public law and public education. Turkish became the only official language of the state. This had two basic consequences. First, it served to undermine among Turkish citizens any identity with the Arab world. Second, it facilitated the separation of religion and state, the effect of which was to make Turkey the only democratic state whose population is overwhelmingly Muslim.

Accordingly, any Muslim country today whose population, like Turkey's, is non-Arab, should be induced to remove Arabic from its public law and public education and make its own native language the only official language of the state. This will simultaneously counteract pan-Arab and pan-Islamic movements as well as international terrorism. It will also facilitate democratization of Muslim countries

1943 Amin Al-Husseini is made Prime Minister of Pan-Arab Government by Nazi regime. His headquarters are in Berlin.
http://tellthechildrenthetruth.com/amin_en.html

Though The Arab population from 1920-1930 generally reaped the benefits of Jewish immigration, and did not oppose the establishment Jewish National Home, there was one man who attempted to breathe life into a national movement: this was the Mufti, Haj Amin al Husseini. The Mufti knew that nationalist slogans alone would not succeed in uniting the masses against Zionism. He therefore turned the struggle into a religious conflict. He addressed the masses clearly, calling for a holy war. His battle cry was simple and comprehensive: "Down with the Infidels!" From the time Herbert Samuel appointed him to the position of Mufti, Haj Amin worked vigorously to raise Jerusalem's status as an Islamic holy center. He renovated the mosques on the Temple Mount, while conducting an unceasing campaign regarding the imminent Jewish "threat" to Moslem holy sites.
Right after the 1942 Allied victory in El Alamein, Jerusalem's grand mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini, took to the airwaves and broadcast in Arabic from Berlin. At that time he already was "prime minister" of a pan-Arab government formed in the German capital. His foreign minister was exiled Iraqi leader Rashid Ali al-Kilani and his war minister, Fawsi al-Kaukji.

THE NAZI CONNECTION TO ISLAMIC TERRORISM

By Samuel Blumenfeld

April 15, 2004

NewsWithViews.com

Chuck Morse's latest book, The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism, Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin al-Husseini, provides the clearest, most incisive history of how Islamo-fascism and Jihad terrorism have become the dominant political philosophy in the Arab world. It is the untold story of how Nazism took root in the Islamic world through the untiring efforts of the Mufti of Jerusalem whose aim it was to destroy the Jews in Palestine. Morse writes:

The Nazi Holocaust appears to have kicked into high gear on November 25, 1941 during a Berlin meeting between the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini (1895-1974) and the Nazi Fuhrer of Germany, Adolf Hitler. At that well-documented meeting, Hitler promised al-Husseini, the Palestinian pan-Arab leader, that after securing a dominant military position in Europe, he would send the Wehrmacht, the Nazi war machine, on a blitzkrieg across the Caucasus and into the Arab world under the guise of liberating the Arabs from British occupation.

It should be noted that merely two months after the Hitler-Husseini meeting, the famous Wansee Conference took place in which the Nazis produced their plan to exterminate the Jews of Europe...

After reading this book you will have no trouble understanding the origin of Islamo-fascism and Jihad terrorism. The author has packed the book with detailed documentation as well as photographs showing Husseini inspecting his Nazi-Muslim troops. Morse shows how Husseini's legacy of hate and murder and his aim to destroy Israel have been carried forth by Arafat and his murderous Palestinian terrorists right to the present.

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."

Letter... Dear Saddam... It is the nail in the coffin for the racist myth of pan-Arabism that you (okay, okay, you and others) propagated to justify brute force as the lowest common denominator of power in the Middle East.
Your claim to defend "Arabism" by persecuting the Kurds (and going to war against the Persians in Iran) was always a cover for the fact that you and your Baathist sidekicks also represent a minority in Iraq. Like the Kurds, Sunni Arabs make up about one-fifth of the population.
Here's my point: The Middle East is a giant mosaic of religious and ethnic minorities that have until now known only how to persecute or be persecuted. Frequently the claim of cultural, political and religious cohesiveness contained in pan-Arabist ideology such as yours is put forward to mask the true diversity and conflicts of the people known as Arabs.
Suppressing diversity is what you were all about. The same is true for your ideological brothers yet personal enemies, the ruling Baathists in Syria, who represent a minority Alawite sect that can rule only by force. No wonder they see themselves as imperiled by democracy arriving next door. Let's hope for once they are right.

What is the ideology behind Saddam Hussein's (former) regime?

"The Ba'ath ideology mixes pan-Arabism with admiration of Mussolini and Hitler, some ideas of state socialism and the notion of an Arab supremacy which will be realized after the Arabs have liberated themselves from foreign - that means mainly Jewish - influence and British and American imperialism. Ba'athism is strongly anti-communist and anti-imperialist, and it is anti- Semitic from its beginning. Everything in Iraq is explained through this huge conspiracy theory against the Arabs, in general, and Iraq, in particular. Iraq is thought to be the greatest Arab nation and the natural leader of Arab unity."

So Iraq sees itself as the center of the Arab world?

"Yes, the leader of Arab unity. Saddam Hussein dreams of ruling a united Arab nation that would become a superpower confronting East and West. Iraqi children are taught in kindergarten that they have to be strong Arab fighters."

Is Iraqi (Saddam's) Ba'athism Islamist?

"Pan-Arabism has always said that Mohammed is the forefather of pan-Arabism and that Islam was spoiled when it crossed the borders of the Arab world to Iran and Turkey. The task now is to `re-animate' the real Islam that was taught by Mohammed as an Arab ideology. Especially during the Iran-Iraq war, when Iraq had to face the Iranian revolution, they loaded their own ideology with Islamic content. The Iranians and the Zionists, they said, are part of a 2,000-year-old plot to smash Iraq and divide the Arabs. 'We are fighting for the real Islam' the regime said, not the kind of spoiled Islam that Iran represents. I think it was a mistake for the Americans to believe, as they did, that Iraq was a stronghold against Islam."

Arabists influence

Arabists: The Romance of an American Elite by Robert D. Kaplan  Blending history, reportage and sharp profiles of key players, this insightful study tells how American "Arabists"--diplomats, intelligence agents, scholar-adventurers, Protestant missionaries, military attaches--formed an elitist, expatriate professional caste in the 19th-century Middle East. The Arabists, in Kaplan's ( Balkan Ghosts ) view, carried on a "romance" with exotic Islamic cultures, and many supported pan-Arab nationalism. Blind to what Kaplan deems the inevitability of the birth of Israel in the aftermath of the Holocaust, American Arabists today often see Israel "in only the simplest stereotype," he asserts. Kaplan charges that Arabists adapted to and promoted the Bush administration's appeasement of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, as exemplified by U.S. ambassador April Glaspie's wooing of Saddam right up to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. Occupational hazards facing the latest crop of Arabists, warns Kaplan, include rampant shallowness, careerism and an insular, sterile embassy life divorced from local realities.

Princes of Darkness, FrontPage Magazine Oct 7, 2005 ...Laurent Murawiec, a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute and the author of the new book Princes of Darkness : The Saudi Assault on the West.: The "shut down" list. And I'd say: "Sir, Mr. President, judge people according to their deeds, not to their sugary words." I'd also advise that a lot of heads that having talking the Saudis up, at the State Department, the CIA especially - the "we-love-the-Sunni-dictators-and-despots-forever-because-they-deliver-stability" school of the three monkeys who see, hear and say no evil - should roll. The 'Arabists' have controlled US policy in the Middle East - and not the Likud! As every cretin, every liar and every falsifier repeats endlessly - for too long..

Arabists, "Pro-Arab Sympathisers"

What motivates the Arabists?

 * Arabists in government do not have names like Hamadi or Abdullah. No, they have names like Hendrikson and Smith and they work diligently for the government of America - except when they don't. When they don't, they work first for themselves and then for their Arab connections. They may be in the White House, the State Dept. and the Intelligence Agencies on orders from any of the above.

Then there are corporations who have leases on Arab oil land, contracts, shipping lines, and these executives are plugged into the highest offices of government. They can be generally defined as either motivated by money or as Arabists: meaning they ideologically agree with Arab orders. (Recall how the multinational oil companies accepted orders from Saudi Arabia during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. The orders were to cease delivering oil to American civilian and military depots. These American based corporations followed the Saudi orders and cut off supply.

Strangely, there was no demand for trial or imprisonment - perhaps because they were so well represented in government that they were untouchable.

 How have the Arabists betrayed America?

 * Perhaps the reader has forgotten the blowing up of the American Marine barracks; or the orders as recorded on tape by Arafat personally ordering the execution of American Ambassador Cleo Noel, Jr. held hostage by Arafat's Force 17 in Khartoum March 1973; or the killing of Leon Klinghoffer off the Achille Lauro; or the bombing of Pan Am 103; or the torture murder of Marine Col. William Higgins; or the World Trade Center bombing; or a thousand other atrocities fomented by a hostile Arab world.

The address of these and a thousand other atrocities is Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya and the PLO who were all kept well-funded by Saudi Arabia. All of these nations who supported terror with money, safe houses, weapons, training bases also had confederates in America. They came from corporations who extracted billions from oil, banking, shipping and construction contracts. The value of their money increased by virtue of their phony escalation of oil prices, fueling world inflation and world hunger. They, in turn, shoveled money into our political system which influenced the Congress and the White House. They became enthusiastic Arabists, thereby opening the doors to terror in America. Perhaps its time, before the terror begins, to weed out Arabists before we have to find them, after hundreds of Americans are killed by Islamic fundamentalists.

  What does the Arabist risk?

 * One day there will be payback time for those Americans who helped the Arab countries build conventional and unconventional forces...

...The American people will move from fear into rage and begin to look for those who not only carried out the operations but those in government and industry who assisted in the growth industry of those terror nations and terror organizations.

I can clearly see the day when the FBI begins to interrogate State Department employees at the highest levels. Was it not the Arabists within the State Department who have assisted and protected Syria all these many years? Was it not the State Department who worked covertly with Yassir Arafat to build his base of terrorists and establishing their cover as "policemen" Surely, we will see such men as former President Bush questioned on his role in supplying Iraq's Saddam Hussein with money and weapons. Former Sec. of State James Baker will be interrogated about his actions in tasking the CIA to build up the credibility of Saeb Erekat, a man now acting liaison for Arafat and the US. All of the Bush cabinet who were given waivers would be investigated for their special investments in Iraq during the Gulf War. Yes, indeed, besides State Dept. officials, former and sitting Presidents, some in Congress - we may see more than a few indictments as an enraged citizenry demands justice for the American Arabists who assisted the growth of terror for oil money...

...Clearly, in their zeal to assist their friends for the money it brings, American Arabists have become accessories to terrorist murders. If former Presidents, Vice Presidents, Secretaries of State and Defense and State Department officials have been part of the growth of terror, then they must go to prison.

Alarming appointment at the CIA by Steve Rosen (19 Feb 2009)

...According to Laura Rozen at the Foreign Policy blog, Chas W. Freeman, Jr., the former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia... 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.

Another Man Down By Kathy Shaidle FrontPageMagazine.com | Wednesday, March 11, 2009

On Monday, Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair announced that Charles Freeman had withdrawn his name from consideration for the post of Chairman of the National Intelligence Council (NIC), ending weeks of acrimonious debate that had been triggered by Freeman's nomination. But while Freeman has receded from the spotlight, his selection to a critical intelligence post ' despite a deeply troubling political background ' lingers as a dark cloud over the Obama administration.

In the sensitive role of Chairman of the NIC, Freeman would have been privy to state secrets and would have advised President Obama on matters of national security. Yet Freeman's ties to foreign powers raised obvious questions regarding conflicts of interest. Moreover, Freeman has made controversial public statements that fly in the face of official U.S. policy, on subjects like the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, America's relationship with Saudi Arabia, and even the 1989 massacre in Communist China's Tiananmen Square.

Since 1997 Freeman, a former U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia and senior envoy to China, has been the president of the nonprofit Middle East Policy Council (MEPC), an organization with "close ties to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia." In a 2006 interview, Freeman explained that MEPC had received a $1 million endowment, thanks to "the generosity of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia." The following year, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al-Saud gave another $1 million to MEPC. (Alwaleed's offer of money to New York City after 9/11 was famously turned down by Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.)

Furthermore, researcher Ashley Rindsberg recently revealed Freeman's pre- and post-9/11 "business connections" with the bin Laden family, which have donated "tens of thousands of dollars a year" to the MEPC. Rindsberg also discovered donations to Obama's presidential campaign by Freeman's Projects International, "a company that develops international business deals."

Many of Freeman's public statements during his time at MEPC also suggest that his "ties to the Kingdom" included identifying with certain aspects of the Saudis' worldview. Among its other activities, the MEPC proudly issued an "unabridged" version of the controversial 2006 essay "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy," by professors John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt. The report claimed that American Jews had a "stranglehold" on U.S. politicians and decision makers. Freeman endorsed the report and boasted, "No one else in the United States has dared to publish this article, given the political penalties that the Lobby imposes on those who criticize it."

Congressman Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) and others opposed to Freeman's appointment had also cited a speech delivered by Freeman in 2002, in which Freeman seemed to make apologies for Islamic terrorism while condemning the United States. Said Freeman:

"Saudis and other Gulf Arabs were shocked by the level of ignorance and antipathy displayed by Americans toward them and toward Islam after September 11. The connection between Islam and suicide bombing is a false connection. Kamikaze pilots were not Muslims¦And what of America's lack of introspection about September 11? Instead of asking what might have caused the attack, or questioning the propriety of the national response to it, there is an ugly mood of chauvinism. Before Americans call on others to examine themselves, we should examine ourselves."

Besides his longstanding ties to Saudi Arabia, Freeman also sits on the international advisory board of the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), which is majority owned by the Chinese government. The Corporation has investments in Sudan as well as Iran and "other countries other countries sometimes at odds with the United States." During Freeman's time on the board, the CNOOC was investigated by the State Department for violating the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act.

Freeman's close working relationship with the Chinese government seems to have influenced his political views ' so much so that, in a 2006 internet post that is only now receiving media scrutiny, Freeman criticized the Chinese authorities for not moving swiftly enough to crush democratic protestors and dissidents assembled in Beijing's Tiananmen Square.

"[T]he truly unforgivable mistake of the Chinese authorities was the failure to intervene on a timely basis to nip the demonstrations in the bud, rather than -- as would have been both wise and efficacious -- to intervene with force when all other measures had failed to restore domestic tranquility to Beijing and other major urban centers in China. In this optic, the Politburo's response to the mob scene at ˜Tiananmen' stands as a monument to overly cautious behavior on the part of the leadership, not as an example of rash action¦.

"I do not believe it is acceptable for any country to allow the heart of its national capital to be occupied by dissidents intent on disrupting the normal functions of government, however appealing to foreigners their propaganda may be. Such folk, whether they represent a veterans' ˜Bonus Army' or a ˜student uprising' on behalf of ˜the goddess of democracy' should expect to be displaced with despatch [sic] from the ground they occupy."

Unsurprisingly, 87 Chinese dissidents, many of whom have served stints in Chinese prisons for their part in the Tiananmen protests, have written President Obama to "convey our intense dismay at your selection" of Freeman. The dissidents noted that "[n]o American in public life has been more hostile than Mr. Freeman toward the ideals of human rights and democracy in China."

Freeman's apologetics for Chinese authoritarianism fueled the fury over his nomination. Adding to the controversy was that, up until his withdrawal from the nomination, Freeman failed to submit the required financial disclosure forms required for all nominees, nor had he been formally vetted by the White House. Instead, an independent inspector had been charged with investigating Freeman's foreign financial ties, following growing criticism of his appointment by senior members of the House of Representatives. And Freeman's critics were only growing more vocal.

Shoshana Bryen, Senior Director for policy at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, was among the first to denounce the Freeman appointment. In a telephone interview with FrontPage prior to Freeman's sudden withdrawal, Bryen said that "unhappiness with" Obama's choice of Freeman "goes beyond party lines." Bryen said that, although the Middle East Policy Council "is a non-profit, Freeman actually worked as a lobbyist," albeit an unofficial one, "because he took his money from people with a particular point of view, so his analysis of certain issue may be distorted by the fact of where the money came from." Bryen added that even if "Saudi Arabia's concerns mirror our own" on occasion ' for instance, when it comes Iran's possible acquisition of nuclear weapons ' Freeman's relationship with the Kingdom suggests that "he may be beholden to a foreign government."

Bryen found Freeman's remarks about Tiananmen Square "even more troubling. He still hasn't disavowed them, and he seems willing to consider that the requirements of an unelected government" like that ruling Communist China, take precedent over the rights of helpless ordinary citizens to life, let alone freedom of assembly.

Echoing Bryen's concerns was Laurent Murawiec, a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute. In an interview conducted before Freeman withdrew his name from consideration, Murawiec told Front Page that Freeman "is part of the crowd," the "cabal," that includes the State Department and the CIA that under George W. Bush issued the "mendacious" National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran. The report's conclusion that "the Ayatollahs' regime had stopped its efforts to weaponize its nuclear program" was based on "evidence that proved to be a lie."

The cabal's policy, "unchanged for decades," says Murawiec, "is that despots and tyrants in the Arab-Muslim world should be supported for the sake of stability, and stability preserved for the sake of petroleum." Such stability, adds Murawiec, never lasts for long.

"Freeman, if head of NIC, will skew and manipulate" future National Intelligence Estimates and "consistently leverage his position in the interest of his Saudi sponsors, and more broadly, of the Washington ˜realist' consensus."

"The NIC does not dictate policy," allows Murawiec, but "with an ignorant and inexperienced president like Barack Obama at the helm, the chances for a serious foreign policy-making process would be further destroyed" with Charles Freeman as the NIC's chairman.

How telling that someone like Freeman, before his fall, had been appointed by the Obama administration for such a sensitive position, especially one that did not require Congressional approval. Given Freeman's undisputed ties to Saudi Arabia and China, any advice he would have offered the President could well have been compromised by conflicts of interest. The results might have proven fatal. Although Freeman was not personally appointed by Obama, the administration allowed the controversy to build for days without comment. The fiasco is another embarrassment for a new administration whose brief transition period has already been marred by similar examples of confusion and poor judgment coming out of the White House.

Saudi Arabia's radical Bin Talal's influence

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.

Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter and the Arab Lobby

December 18, 2006

Nothing demonstrates more clearly the defects of Jimmy Carter's latest brief against Israel, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, than the ex-president's reluctance to defend the book on its merits. Rather than take up that unenviable task, Carter has sought to shift the focus away from the criticism -- especially as it concerns the book's serial distortions and outright falsehoods -- and onto the critics.

In particular, Carter claims that critics are compromised by their support for Israel, their ties to pro-Israel lobbying organizations, and -- a more pernicious charge -- their Jewish background. In interviews about his book, Carter has seldom missed an opportunity to invoke what he calls the "powerful influence of AIPAC," with the subtext that it is the lobbying group, and not his slanderous charges about Israel, that is mainly responsible for mobilizing popular outrage over Palestine. In a related line of defense, Carter has singled out "representatives of Jewish organizations" in the media as the prime culprits behind his poor reviews and "university campuses with high Jewish enrollment" as the main obstacle to forthright debate about his book on American universities. (Ironically, when challenged last week by Alan Dershowitz to a debate about his book at Brandeis University, which has a large Jewish student body, Carter rejected the invitation.)

Bluster aside, Carter's chief complaint seems to be that anyone who identifies with Israel, whether in the form of individual support or in a more organized capacity, is incapable of grappling honestly with the issues in the Arab-Israeli conflict. But Carter is poorly placed to make this claim. If such connections alone are sufficient to discredit his critics, then by his own logic Carter is undeserving of a hearing. After all, the Carter Center, the combination research and activist project he founded at Emory University in 1982, has for years prospered from the largesse of assorted Arab financiers.

Especially lucrative have been Carter's ties to Saudi Arabia. Before his death in 2005, King Fahd was a longtime contributor to the Carter Center and on more than one occasion contributed million-dollar donations. In 1993 alone, the king presented Carter with a gift of $7.6 million. And the king was not the only Saudi royal to commit funds to Carter's cause. As of 2005, the king's high-living nephew, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, has donated at least $5 million to the Carter Center.

Meanwhile the Saudi Fund for Development, the kingdom's leading loan organization, turns up repeatedly on the center's list of supporters. Carter has also found moneyed allies in the Bin Laden family, and in 2000 he secured a promise from ten of Osama bin Laden's brothers for a $1 million contribution to his center. To be sure, there is no evidence that the Bin Ladens maintain any contact with their terrorist relation. But applying Carter's own standard, his extensive contacts with the Saudi elite must make his views on the Middle East suspect.

High praise for Carter's work -- and not inconsiderable financial support -- also comes from the United Arab Emirates. In 2001, Carter even traveled to the country to accept the Zayed International Prize for the Environment, named for Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahyan, the late [[UAE]] potentate and former president-for-life. Having claimed his $500,000 purse, Carter enthused that the "award has special significance for me because it is named for my personal friend, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan al-Nahyan." Carter also hailed the UAE as an "almost completely open and free society" -- a surreal depiction of a rigidly authoritarian country where the government handpicks a select group of citizens to vote and strictly controls the editorial content of the newspapers and where Islamic Shari'a courts judge "sodomy" punishable by death. (To appreciate the depth of Carter's cynicism, one need only compare his gushing encomia to the emirates with his likening of Israel, the most modern and democratic country in the entire Middle East, with the racist "apartheid" of South Africa.)

On top of these official honors, Carter was offered a forum at the Abu Dhabi-based Zayed Center for Coordination and Follow Up, the country's official "think-tank." For his part, Carter declared his intention to forge a "partnership" with the center; in a 2002 letter, Carter praised its efforts to "promote peace, health, and human rights around the world." Inconveniently for Carter, the center has since become famous for a different reason: It has repeatedly played host to anti-Semitic speakers who have denied the Holocaust, supported terrorism, and alleged an international conspiracy of Jews and Zionists to dominate the world. (Harvard University, in contrast to Carter's enthusiasm for Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahyan, rejected a $2.5 million from the ruler in 2004 due to his ties to the Zayed Center.)

Nor does this exhaust the list of Carter's backers in the Arab world. Still other supporters include Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who sits atop Oman's absolute monarchy. An occasional host to Carter, the sultan has also made generous contributions to his center. Prior to inviting Carter for a "personal visit" in 1998, the sultan pledged $1 million to the Carter Center, promising additional support in the future. Similarly, Morocco's Prince Moulay Hicham Ben Abdallah, the second in line to the kingdom's throne, has in the past partnered with Carter on the center's initiatives.

On its face, there is nothing objectionable about these contacts. What has raised critics' eyebrows is Carter's immense chutzpah: In securing the financial support of assorted Arab leaders, Carter has gradually come to parrot their anti-Israel political agenda -- even as he styles himself as a dispassionate mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

This was nowhere more evident than in Carter's credulous support for the late Yasir Arafat. Although Carter had championed Araft as a committed peacemaker since his presidency, in the face of ample evidence to the contrary, his apologies for the terrorist chieftain became particularly shameless in the 1990s. When Arafat and his PLO backed Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, thereby loosing the support and -- more important for the corrupt Arafat -- the funding of neighboring Sunni Arab powers, Carter embarked on a Middle East publicity tour to revive Arafat's diminishing fortunes. As recorded by Carter biographer Douglas Brinkley, "together [Carter and Arafat] strategized on how to recover the PLO's standing in the United States." In desperation, Carter turned up in Saudi Arabia on what Brinkley called "essentially a fund-raising mission for the PLO," pleading with King Fahd to restore Arafat to the Saudi dole.

Now that Arafat's Fatah has been replaced with Hamas, Carter has again proven himself a reliable ally of Palestinian extremism. Scarcely had the terrorist group ascended to power last January than Carter launched a media blitz urging the United States to circumvent its own laws against financing terrorism in order to fund Hamas. As the New York Times put with exquisite finesse, Carter called on Western nations to "redirect their relief aid to United Nations organizations and nongovernmental organizations to skirt legal restrictions" -- that is, to launder money to a terrorist group. When American policymakers declined to heed his advice, and Israel proved unwilling to bankroll the enemy seeking its destruction, Carter promptly denounced the both countries for their "common commitment to eviscerate the government of elected Hamas."

With its relentless disparagement of Israel and its reckless abuse of the historical record, Carter's latest book may fairly be seen as the logical culmination of his many years of anti-Israel incitement. There was of course no shortage of clues about Carter's sympathies in his earlier books. In his 2004 memoir Sharing Good Times, for instance, Carter recalled the trips he has taken over the years to Arab dictatorships in Syria and Saudi Arabia and noted with evident satisfaction that he was "always greeted with smiles and friendship."

Readers may be forgiven for finding nothing shocking in this admission. Carter may still harbor illusions of grandeur, seeing himself as an instrument of peace in the Middle East. But an altogether different element explains his enduring popularity in Arab capitals: Not for all the millions they have sunk into the Carter Center over the years could Arab elites have hoped to purchase such a prominent and willing propaganda tool.

Lounsbury: Darfur - On Racism, On Ignorance, [Arabism, Arab supremacist government in Sudan,]  On Laziness and just plain stupidity (and Arab responses)
http://lounsbury.aqoul.com/archives/2004/08/darfur_on_racis.html

'Genocide in Darfur' (by Samuel Totten, Eric Markusen) Racist ideology plays an important part of the story, as it has in the history of other twentieth century genocides. And the psychology of "genocide" has become familiar through the sorry repetition of genocidal acts that the last century has witnessed. In 1987, Libya used the northwestern Darfur corner as a backdoor to attack Chad. It had equipped and sent out the so-called Arab legion, an Arab supremacist militia, to pursue Arab expansion in the mineral-rich sub-Saharan regions it bordered and to drive out the African tribes. Libya was not orchestrating a simple border raid on a poor country; it was pursuing a new strategy of pan-Arabism, couched in an emotionally charged ideology.

The Sharp distinction between Arabs and Africans in the racially mixed Darfur region had not been drawn until the ideology of pan-Arabism that came out of the Libya made itself felt... when the GoS tried to impose Sharia Law in 1983, it triggered civil war in the South. This marked the first use of government-backed militias... some of the cattle herding... of Darfur were employed in a strategy of brutality, starvation, rape, and pillage that was to be visited upon Darfur two decades later. Complaints of Arab militia harassment in Darfur surfaced in 2003...

Facing Evil: Genocide in Darfur ... Islamist dictatorship... the Islamist movement, the political expression of Islamic fundamentalism that seeks to impose its theocratic vision on the Islamic world. Beginning in the 1930s and 1940s with the Islamic Brotherhood, this movement morphed into the National Islamic Front (NIF), which took control of Sudan in the 1989 coup and turned Khartoum into an international center for guerilla activities elsewhere. Osama bin Laden lived in Khartoum for five years before leaving for Afghanistan in 1995. Today the NIF is trying to impose its Islamist and Arabist worldview on all of Sudan, at the expense of indigenous farmers, mostly in the south and west, who identify themselves by tribe and for whom Arabic is a second language.
Roughly speaking, the conflict is ethnic... majority is considered inferior by the privileged Arabist minority centered in Khartoum and, in a comparison drawn by Gillian Lusk, deputy editor of the London-based fortnightly newsletter Africa Confidential, was "in the way," much as the Jews, Roma, and other "others" were for the Nazis. Historically, racism plays a part. Arabs refer to darker Africans as "abeed," roughly equivalent to "slave." These ancient antipathies go back to the Ottoman Empire, when conquerors developed the north of Sudan and neglected the more inaccessible south and earlier, under Egypt, when northern Arabs raided the south for ivory and slaves. Slavery continued as a powerful undercurrent in the north-south war that has wracked Sudan for the past two decades, as the northern rulers kidnapped young Africans and forced them into military service.

In an article titled "The Arab Silence on Darfur Revisited," Abu Khawla, a human rights activist and former chair of the Tunisian section of Amnesty International, points out that pan-Arabism is the chief culprit for the lack of Arab reaction to the "horrendous crime being committed by their fellow Arabs in Sudan." In his view, the only effective way to counter the pan-Arab "propaganda of hate-mongering and deceit" is to mobilize the Arab liberal movement.

Sudan - Civil War and Genocide
Religion is the pivotal factor in the conflict. The North, with roughly two-thirds of Sudan's land and population, is Muslim and Arabic-speaking; the Northern identity is an inseparable amalgamation of Islam and the Arabic language. The South is more indigenously African in race, culture, and religion; its identity is indigenously African, with Christian influences and a Western orientation. [...]
Background: The South
In sharp contrast, the identity of southern Sudan has been shaped primarily by the prolonged resistance to the imposition of Arab and Islamic culture from the North. This has had the effect of unifying the Southerners as black Africans and has geared them toward Christianity and the English language as means of combating Islam and Arabism.
The identity of southern Sudan has been shaped primarily by the prolonged resistance to the imposition of Arab and Islamic culture from the North.
In contrast to the Arabs, the British were associated with the redemption of the South from the Arab slave raids.

Darfur: The Avoidance Word Still Screams Its Name Wole Soyinka (2006-10-12) ...Darfur " Genocide!" ...on their own historic claims, such as the self-pronounced Arabist, the Sudanese prime minister, Ismail Al- Azhari, who, in 1965, made the following declaration:
...We are proud of our Arab origin, of our Arabism and of being Muslims. The Arabs came to this continent, as pioneers, to disseminate a genuine culture and promote sound principles which have shed enlightenment and civilization throughout Africa at a time when Europe was plunged into the abyss of darkness, ignorance, and doctrinal and scholarly backwardness. It is our ancestors who held the torch high and led the caravan of liberation and advancement; and it is they who provided a superior melting-pot for Greek, Persian and Indian culture, giving them the chance to react with all that was noble in Arab culture, and handing them back to the rest of the world as a guide to those who wished to extend the frontiers of learning.
That lofty declaration " never mind its hyperbolic accents - but certainly one which Leopold Sedar Senghor would have endorsed as the ringing spirit of Arabite was made just less than a decade after the first gathering of the black writers and artistes of the world, impelled also by the need to situate their race and heritage accurately in a racist world. The claims of black civilization were no less resonant at that conference, no less proud, the mission of race retrieval no less impassioned. And the question we must ask the government of Sudan today is simply this: how does the current manifesto of the Janjaweed, the champions of Arabism, its project of cultural extermination, correspond to Al-Azhariâ's manifesto of enlightenment " among numerous others. Examine the tomes of attestation with the United Nations' fact-finding missions, examine even the dossiers that have resulted in sealed indictments against named individuals both in government and in the autonomous order of the Janjaweed, soulmates of the Milesovics, the Radovan Karavics, the Radkos of eastern Europe, and tell us if Al-Azhariâ's banner of enlightenment has not been besmirched by his Hitlerian apostles.

Darfur: The Ambiguous Genocide
de Gerard Prunier - 2005
situation in Darfur a "genocide" in September 2004. Its characteristics-Arabism, Islamism, famine as a weapon of war, mass rape, international obfuscation, and a refusal to look evil squarely in the face-reflect many of the problems of the global South in general and of Africa in particular.Journalistic explanations of the unfolding humanitarian catastrophe have been given to hurried generalizations and inaccuracies: the genocide has been portrayed as an ethnic clash marked by Arab-on-African violence, with the Janjaweed militias under strict government control, but neither of these impressions is strictly true. Darfur: The Ambiguous Genocide explains what lies behind the conflict, how it came about, why it should not be oversimplified, and why it is so relevant to the future of the continent. Gerard Prunier sets out the ethnopolitical makeup of the Sudan and explains why the Darfur rebellion is regarded as a key threat to Arab power in the country-much more so than secessionism in the Christian South. This, he argues, accounts for the government'deployment of "exemplary violence" by the Janjaweed militias in order to intimidate other African Muslims into subservience. As the world watches; governments decide if, when, and how to intervene; and international organizations struggle to distribute aid, the knowledge in Prunier'book will provide crucial assistance.

On Kurds

As a wave of pan-Arabism swept the Middle East in the 1950s and 1960s, the Syrian government decided in 1962 to strip thousands of Kurds of their citizenship. The method: a census supposedly designed to root out "alien infiltrators" from Turkey. If a Kurd could not prove residency in Syria since 1945, he or she lost Syrian citizenship. This fate befell 120,000 Kurds.
Today over 225,000 Kurds in Syria are designated as "foreigners", out of a total Kurdish population of around 1.5 million. The Baath Party launched an official Arabization campaign in 1963 that began to stamp out Kurdish street names, Kurdish publications, and even Kurdish personal names.

Second-Citizens...For Many, Not Citizens at All
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," she says. "People could not have Kurdish names on cities, buildings [and] businesses. Children's names could not be Kurdish."
Syria's Kurds struggled for years to survive despite government oppression on many fronts. They closely watched their Iraqi counterparts, who achieved a measure of autonomy in the 1990s, and pressed Damascus for their own rights. Their demands were ignored or sometimes met with waves of repression.

The Kurdish people in Syria has been subjected to racist Arabist policies ...

The racist Arabist ideology is so reactionary and aggressive that it is easily transformed into a repressive violent practice of killing, torture and genocide. The Kurdish people are not the only people who have suffered and are suffering from this policy. The people of South Sudan have been suffering from Arab genocide too. More than one million of them have been massacred in the name of Arabism and Islamic Sharia. The Western democracies have criminally supported Arab genocide of South Sudanese people for their own economic interests in the same way as they supported Saddam's genocide against the Kurdish people. The Amazighi people in Moroco, where they represent the majority of the population, and Algeria have also been colonised and repressed by Arab chauvinism for many decades. social backwardness and the repression of non-Arab nations and minorities

KurdishMedia.com19/03/2004 00:00:00
...Throughout the past week, an uprising has been taking place in western (Syrian) Kurdistan. As Kurds in Qamishlo and other cities throughout Syria rise up to demand the human rights due to them and all human beings, the Ba'athist regime of Syria, a sister regime of the now defunct Iraqi dictatorship, has taken harsh measures against Kurdish protestors, killing hundreds and arresting and wounding thousands. The international community and media are reacting only with silence, and the majority of the world's citizens are simply unaware of the uprising and impending humanitarian crisis currently taking place.
[...]
During this most crucial time, all lovers of freedom and human rights must do what they can to aid the uprising from afar. Increasing public awareness of the uprising is imperative, for silence from the international community will only encourage the Syrian regime to take harsh steps against the protestors and all Kurds in Syria. The racist Syrian Ba'athist regime, which massacred tens of thousands of Syrian civilians in the city of Hama in 1982, is certainly willing to engage in a massacre if it feels it will be permitted to do so..

Yawar, Referendum and Arab racism 15.10.2004 By: Dr. Kamal Mirawdeli, KurdistanObserver.com

Ghazi al-Yawar's attack against Kurdistan Referendum Movement and Kurdistan's right to self-determination is not of course slightly surprising. But it has certain meanings and implications which are important to analyse and understand. First let us read what Al-Yawar said. This is how KDP's website (kdp.info) reported his statement on 6 October 2004:
Iraqi President, Ghazi al Yawar, denounced on Tuesday [5 October 2004] the pro-referendum voices in Kurdish administrated Iraq calling it "national betrayal' from the Kurds. " Iraq is a free country where the freedom of expression is estimated, but this does not mean that some people would try to speak about disintegrating Iraq. This is not something we could accept and we will counter this with all our power," Mr Yawar said in a televised interview with the Al-Arabiya TV...

So what does Yawar's threat against Referendum and through it all freedom-loving Kurds mean?

Yawar is now a feeble negligible lame-duck President. In spite of that he does not think of any political, diplomatic, moral and even tribal considerations, as a new husband of a political Kurdish woman, to restraint his essentially racist views, He frankly expresses his racist hatred of Kurds, his true Arab fascist a nature which does not recognize any form of democracy or freedom of expression, nor the rights of people to self determination and democratic determination of their future.

Yawar's statements to al-Arabiyya satellite TV, are true racist Saddamite Arabist discourse. However, we must be grateful to Yawar for being so foolhardily frank in expressing his racism. This along with daily beheadings and killings of Kurds by fascist Arabs and the discovery of yet a new chain of mass graves containing born and unborn babies, women and their hoops, children and their toys, must be a further and final warning to all the Kurdish people including their treacherous leaders, that only independence can guarantee future safety and security of our children.

Is Pan-Arabism a Nationalism without a Nation?
[2007]
For a long period of time those called Arabs were the tribes living in the Arabian Peninsula¦ After the Islamic conquests, the number of Arabic-speakers began to rise. These new Arabic-speakers could not claim descent from the Arabs, and for many centuries they were not viewed as Arabs, nor did they consider themselves to be such.
[...]
The problem is that this totalizing theory did not present realistic and just solutions to the various conflicts that tear apart our region to this day. The policies of forced Arabization; the mistreatment of the Kurdish minority in Iraq, the oppression of the Kurds in Syria, the harassment of the Coptic minority in Egypt and the Assyrians and Chaldeans in Iraq; the provocations against what is left of the Jewish diaspora in a few countries like Yemen, Syria, and Iraq; and the intimidation and cultural negation of any minority that refuses to submit to what the peddlers of Pan-Arabism try to impose on them ' all of this does nothing but generate more violence and tragedy.
If the military intervention in Iraq and the deposing of the Pan-Arabist Saddam Hussein regime has had one positive result, aside from the timid beginnings of a democratic political process, it is without doubt the fact that light has been shed on the great sectarian, linguistic, and cultural diversity with which the Middle East is blessed. The question of accepting the other's difference and identity remains the greatest challenge for the Arab nationalists.

Baathism

Baathism
Like militant Islam, the major ideas of Baathism center around racism and anti-Semitism. The Baath party stems from the Pan-Arab movement that adopted an ideology based on the nationalist and racist theories of Satia al-Husri. The Baath (or Renaissance) Party was founded in 1943 as an openly racist movement. Sami al-Jundi, one of the early Baath leaders, stated, "We were racists, admiring Nazism, reading its books and the source of its thought..."(6) In the Baath myth about history, the Arab nation was named to be the people of God, but had been corrupted and polluted by the "people of evil" who were Jews. Arab television makes a considerable effort to show a crisis of morality, culture, and values among non-Muslims. These stations broadcast extreme examples of negative moral behaviors culled from the Western media and present them as a daily reality of Western society. They try to prove that Arabs and Muslims in general are superior to Westerners: Christians and Jews.

Syria and Terrorism
by Dr. Abdul Khalik Hussein [Monday, March 07, 2005]

Poor Ahmed, the Baathist Palestinian!
September 17, 2005
Rubin gives not one indication that Ahmed and his Palestinian terror cohorts, have alternatives to the fascist, racist, genocidal, terrorist tactics they have embraced. For her, these are the natural choices of the victimized. Catch her portrayal of Ahmed's older brother's affiliation with the Baathists, which led Ahmed down his path: 'The Baath Party philosophy dominant in the 1950s and 1960s emphasized a secular Arab nationalism and opposition to colonial rule.'
Wow! Secular nationalism and opposition to colonial rule sounds pretty reasonable, doesn't it? No hint that Baathism developed out of Nazism, as Yasser Arafat's late uncle, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem sat out the war years in Berlin, and brought back home a political model for the Baath party. No exploration of the aim of driving the Jews into the ocean. Nope, only just a bunch of harmless secular nationalists...
http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2005/09/poor_ahmed_the_baathist_palest.html
 
...Saddam's Baath party... was founded in 1943 in Damascus, during the period when Damascus was under the colonial domination of France's government, which was fascist in those days. And the party, conforming to the interests of French policy and to the larger enthusiasm for German fascism that was emanating from Europe, drew a major aspect of its inspiration from Nazism. The goal of the Baath party was to adapt the racist and totalitarian ideas of Europe for the Arab world to combine the fascism of Europe with the ethnic traditions and Islamic orientation of the Arab countries.

On Assyrians

The Chaldean Assyrians Under the Arab Baath Regime of Iraq, Oct 28, 1999 ... To understand the reaction (or lack of it) among the Chaldeans towards those Arab Baath racist policies one has to tackle once again the question of the absence of political movements among them.
In a social sense, political movements arise as a reflection of the need of a group of people to defend or preserve one's own national and ethnic rights or promote one's own "special interests" agenda. However, in the case of the onslaught of those racist policies, no major reaction took place among the Chaldeans to fight back, hence, the question that might arise is: Was there any Arab Baathi policies directed towards our people that demand reaction? The following is a list of some of the major policies through which the current regime used to resolve the "Chaldean/Assyrian Question"...
http://www.chaldeansonline.org/Banipal/English/ghassan3.html

...In the following years and the pain still piercing, Bakr Sidqi, the Baghdadi army's chief responding to the zealous cry of the new pan-Arab fascists organised the cold blooded massacre of innocent Assyrians with the watchful eye of Imperial Britain, because they dared to ask for the recognition of the Assyrian nationality and the Assyrian cultural rights within the newly formed regime.
Betrayed and denied by Imperial Britain, the Assyrian national uprising was suppressed and the Assyrian rights' movement was pigeonholed. For the next decades and under various successive regimes the Assyrians were known by their religion as 'Christians' until the ascent of the new Baathists to power in the hot summer of 1968. Then things started to change.

What Happened To the 80 Millions Assyrians After the Fall of Nineveh?
By: Paroqa D'Omta Ashoureeta
[18 April 2007]
Progenitor of Wars and Tyrannies: the Falsehood of Pan-Arabism
The deep and hidden reason of the tyrannical oppression practiced throughout the Middle East is the imposition by France and England of pan-Arabic nationalist cliques that intend to dictatorially arabize the various peoples of the Middle East, who are ' all ' not Arabs.
http://www.betnahrain.org/bbs/index.pl/noframes/read/15531

Husri correctly deduced that it was through education, especially children, that the "new morality" of Arabism was to be transmitted. In this endeavor, he achieved a great success. In this mission he was helped by a certain British advisor to the Iraqi Ministry of education by the name of Lionel Smith. Smith seems to have admired Husri's passionate zeal for education, but is on record for stating that many of Husri's "views were wrong". Husri's attitudes against non-Arabs seem to have been adopted by his son Khaldun al-Husri, a nationalist Arab historian who has attempted to minimize the violent destruction of the Assyrian community in Northern Iraq in the 1920s. This is reflected in:

Islamist Ethnic-Cleansing of Assyrians in Iraq
[August 13, 2008]
Assyrians are not seeking to re-establish Assyria, that is an unrealistic dream. Assyrians simply want to live in peace and freedom, to practice their religion, to teach their language and history. In the last 1400 years, thus has proven to be elusive, as every power that be wanted to assimilate Assyrians. We are called Arab-Christians, Iranian-Christians, Turkish-Christians and now Kurdish Christians...

...about the Arab/Muslim civilization. As an Assyrian, a non-Arab, Christian native of the Middle East, whose ancestors reach back to 5000 B.C., I wish to clarify some points you made in this little story, and to alert you to the dangers of unwittingly being drawn into the Arabist/Islamist ideology, which seeks to assimilate all cultures and religions into the Arab/Islamic fold. [...]
There are minorities and nations struggling for survival in the Arab/Muslim ocean of the Middle East and Africa (Assyrians, Armenians, Coptics, Jews, southern Sudanese, Ethiopians, Nigerians...), and we must be very sensitive not to unwittingly and inadvertently support Islamic fascism and Arab Imperialism, with their attempts to wipe out all other cultures, religions and civilizations. It is incumbent upon each one of us to do our homework and research when making statements and speeches about these sensitive matters.

Libya's Mu'ammar Qaddafi

A History of Fascism, 1914-1945 - by Stanley G. Payne - 1996 - History (Page 515)
As one approaches the Middle East, however, the trail becomes warmer. This is an area originally impacted to some extent by paradigmatic European fascism.
Some of the new nationalist regimes which developed in the Middle East during the second half of the century exhibited more of the characteristics of fascism than those of any other part of the world. A first example was the Egyptian regime under Nasser, with its Fuhrerprinzip, "Arab socialism," a state sector of the economy approaching 40 percent, and bellicosity toward Israel...
At first glance a better case might be made for the Libyan dictatorship of Mu'ammar al-Gadhafi, established in 1969. Though the dictator of a major oil-exporting country, Gaddafi is a fanatical Muslim... "Brother Colonel" has renounced capitalism, preaching pan-Arabism and a form of "Arab socialism," while his interest in militarism, violence, ...
http://books.google.com/books?id=NLiFIEdI1V4C&pg=PA515
 
Another Muslim "thinker" has ... criticized the Arab world. Libyan ruler Muammar Qaddafi's analysis of the Arab world - reported by the Libyan newspaper al-Shams - began with a romantic look at the 1948 war of Israeli independence, "the only time that all the Arabs fought as one people and as one nation." The Arab leaders of the day, Qaddafi explained, are today seen as "reactionaries", but "they were 1,000 times better than the Arabs of today, who have no courage, honor, blood, or pride." Today, however, the Libyan dictator declared, "you cannot speak of Arab unity and pan-Arab nationalism." Qaddafi complained that Libya had stood up for Arab unity and the Palestinian cause. That "Libya became the enemy of the Jews and the entire West for the Arabs, and without this there would have been no problems between Libya and the US and even between it and the Jews, or between Libya and Europe. If we had not gotten ourselves in trouble in battles because of pan-Arabism and Arab unity, we would have been spared all the tragedies caused us."
 
Bitterly, the Libyan leader declared, "If we were not an Arab country, [the Arabs] would not be cursing us...Leave us alone! Are you attacking us because we are Arabs? We're fed up. We are Africans. Treat us like Africans." He asked, "What is the connection between Libya and Kuwait? One country is situated in Africa and the other in Asia." He sarcastically called for all Arabs to leave Africa and return to Arabia, "at least to receive their quota of oil," Qaddafi then continued: "The Arabs have become the joke of the world because they do not think of their future..."
 
"The Arabs are completely useless...." Qaddafi declared, "We will not be finished together with them. We will be, ultimately, in our African nation and on the African continent...by means of which we will become stronger, like the American continent and the European continent. The Arabs have written a mark of disgrace in history that they will never be able to eradicate. They watch what is happening in Iraq and in Palestine from the sidelines. They are finished. They have no honor and they have no blood. There is no longer any Arab blood or pan-Arab blood, Arab unity, Arab manliness, Arab femininity. There is nothing. The situation has gotten so bad that the women are the ones who take the initiative. Today was the most dangerous "fedaii" [terror] operation in so-called Israel - and it was carried out by a young Palestinian woman, not by a man." The Libyan leader repeated, "The Arabs are completely useless. We must not waste time. The Arabs are through. Tomorrow, Asia will es tablish great unions and Africa is already united - and where are you, Arab?"
 
As for Africa, Qaddafi apologized for having "brought Mauritania, Djibouti, Somalia, and the Comoro Islands into the Arab League...Look what an injustice I did them. I brought them into a failed nation, a failed regime, and failed people..." And of the Libyan people he asked that they, "agree to quit the Arab League, without wasting time. These people [the Arabs] are useless. Their situation is terrible. We must be rid of them, of their curses and of their problems."

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.
...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.

Arabs in Africa
By: Naiwu Osahon
Jan 13, 2009
   Egypt is still so intimidated by its glorious Black African past that its Arab government would not allow thorough research into Egypt's past. President Gamal Abdel Nasser falsified Egyptian history when he declared Egypt an Arab Republic. Egyptian authorities refused to allow American film makers to make a film on the life of Anwar Sadat in Egypt on the ground that the actor chosen for Sadat's role was black. When Morocco left the OAU in 1984, it aspired to become a member of the European Union.
 
In Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea, Mauritania and the rest of the Arab world, Africans are treated as the scum of the earth. They are second-class citizens at the very best in their own countries. Blacks in these countries cannot aspire to positions of respect or authority. There are hardly Africans in high government positions in Arab governed African countries. Like Brazil, which is just as racially cruel against their black natives, there is no legislation favouring slavery (except in Mauritania). It is simply a way of life that's all. Blacks do not really exist or at best are not humans.
 
Mauritania left the Economic Community of West African States to join the union formed by the Arab North African States. A few years ago, Mauritania sacked all black natives from their civil service positions. Black Mauritanians protest their plight to the African Union (AU) without receiving attention, because AU black leaders fear offending their Arab colleagues in the AU. In Mauritania, they have had to declare an end to slavery six times in this century alone, and still nothing has changed for the captive majority African natives. African slavery is still in their statute books. African slavery in Mauritania is what the on going quarrel between Mauritania and Senegal is about. The quarrel forced black African refugees to pour across the border from Mauritania into Senegal.
 
In Algeria, Arabs throw stones at black people, including diplomats, in markets and other public places. To quote Prof. Clarke, "Arabs always act as though they are not in Africa. Once when I was visiting Egypt, I told my Egyptian Arab host to get a cab ready for the next morning that I was going to Kenya. 'So you are going to Africa to visit your people? We got no diseases here, why are you leaving us?" the host asked. Even across the Red Sea, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, blacks are treated worse than animals, after using their life's savings to go there on pilgrimage.
 
Hundreds of blacks who have lived all their lives in Saudi Arabia are being repatriated daily right now, after loosing an arm or leg for some minor or trumped up offense and without regard for their comfort, welfare or rights. Racism towards black Moslems in Saudi Arabia is so strong it makes one wonder if making pilgrimage to Mecca should be one of the five pillars of the Muslim faith, and why blacks bother to be Muslim.
 
Col. Gadhafi saw vicious white racism in the tragic death in August 1997, of Princess Diana of Wales, the mother of a future king of England, and her Arab lover. What no one remembered to ask Gadhafi was whether he himself was disposed to allowing any daughter of his to marry even the richest black man in the world let alone a black Libyan. If one were to ask Gadhafi why Africans are not high up in his government, he might balk that all Libyans are Africans. In that case, one should go and find out the truth for oneself in the poor sections of town. One would be shocked by the plight of our African kith and kin that constitute the bulk of the population in oil rich Libya and other Northern African countries similarly afflicted with Arab racism. While pretending to champion pan-African interest, he is busy getting rid of black immigrants from Libya.
 
On 9 May, 1997, in flagrant defiance of a UN embargo on flights in and out of Libya, Col. Gadhafi invaded Nigeria with his planes carrying 1,000 members of his rag-tag army, plus 500 journalists. They strategically occupied the Kano airport and his other reception facilities, with the connivance of the Nigerian Muslim dictator host. The purpose was to launch a jihad in supposedly religiously secular Nigeria, or at least precipitate a serious schism between the predominantly Moslem north of the country and the Christian and animist south. Right now the Moslem world is trying to use 'Sharia' to dismember Nigeria. Pakistan, Libya and Saudi Arabia, to name a few, have pumped substantial funds into Zamfara, the first of Nigeria's Sharia states, to start the process of Islamizing, (or at least trigger mayhem and civil war), in Nigeria as in Sudan.
 
No nation in Africa has suffered more in the hands of the Arabs than Ethiopia. It has been going on since Arabs first invaded Africa in the 7th century CE. Recently, with Libya supporting the people of Eritrea, they destroyed the basic structure of Ethiopia, to cut her from the sea and weaken this section of Africa, and eventually all of Africa, for further Arabization. They did this mercilessly with religion.
 
In the last 38 years, Gadhafi at one time or the other, tried to force Libya's unification with Egypt, Algeria etc, and has continued the effort since with Sudan. He forcibly annexed the Auzon Strip from Chad, and sponsored destabilization in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Mali, Cote d' Ivoire, Niger, etc in pursuance of his Arabization of Africa policy, laced with inordinate imperial personal ambition. In 1998, his strategy got a fillip with the founding of his community of Sahel-Savannah States (CEN -- SAD), which he was hoping to use to control the envisaged African Union (AU). The CEN -- SAD, at the moment, ropes in 25 African states from West, East, and Central Africa, and includes Senegal, Cote d "Ivoire, Chad, Sudan, Somalia, Comoro Islands etc. Most of these unsuspecting African countries were stable until they joined CEN -- SAD.
 
Col. Muammar Gadhafi pushed desperately for a United States of Africa government to be approved, set up, and launched right there and then, at the 9th ordinary Session of the Assembly of the heads of states of the African Union (AU), held in July 2007, in Accra, Ghana.
 
He has heightened his Arabization policy pursuit at the AU level since 2001, pretending to be promoting the Pan-African agenda of Kwame Nkrumah. Chinweizu, the renowned scholar, described Gadhafi's Arab-Black Africa government plan at the time, "as unification of nigger monkey with python." Arabs themselves divide Africa into North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa to instigate a division and as long as the invaders continue to occupy our land and treat us as slaves in North Africa, the two segments of the continent cannot cohabit.
 
In a paper presented at the meeting of the Arab league in Amman, Jordan, in 2001, Muammar Gadhafi spelt out the Arabization agenda against Africa in language reminiscent of Adolph Hitler's Lebensraum, (Hitler's sick obsession to secure a living space for political and economic expansion in Europe) for the Germans, (the superior race). Gadhafi in his address during the Amman's Arab conference invited his Arab brothers outside of Africa to come to Africa in the following words. "The third of the Arab community living outside Africa should move in with the two-thirds (about 250 million) on the continent, and join the African Union, which is the only space we have."
 
Gadhafi's unbridled urge in modern times to enlarge Arabia inside Africa, is a continuation of the Arab war against Africans and the Arabization of African lands that started in the 7th century CE. Arabs have since settled on one-third of Africa, pushing continuously southwards towards the Atlantic Ocean. Arabs' racial war against black Africa started with their occupation and colonization of Egypt between 637 and 642 CE, decimating the Coptic or black population.

In a separate statement, the CNCCOT, a Moroccan organization demanding official status for the Berber language in Morocco, called for a new secular and democratic constitution, guarantees of freedom of expression, and an end to Morocco's membership in the Arab League: "The Moroccan authorities' membership in illusory, phantom organizations like the Arab League is nothing but a waste of time and money, We demand that Morocco withdraw from the Arab League and from all the racist organizations of which it is a member."

Official request for an autonomy status for Kabylia [June, 2008]

On the Algerian State side, actions are more serious. Inheriting of the colonial French State, the Algerian regimepursues its methods, its colonialist vision and reflexes, at least against Kabylian whose identity, language and cultureare declared as subversive and are furiously fought by the young Algerian State. The latest aims to eradicate thosepermanently by adopting a policy of cultural genocide through Arabism of their School who has half opened doors - to the amazigh language and not to the kabyle langage - for only 12 years. The Algerian constitution integrated it asnational langage in 2002 only, but not as official and without any drastic change to the fate of the Tamazight language in peoples daily life. Therefore, there culturally and linguistically exist, first class and second class Algeriancitizens.

The two colleges policy - largely disparaged during the colonial period - has been largely renewed since1962. Arabs are first-class citizens in Algeria, Amazigh in general and Kabylian more specifically are second-classcitizens. They get killed, jailed, tortured, watched, are subject to provocations, insults and racket and exposed tonational and public condemnation for their refusal of Arabism and Islamism, two elements that are for the Algerian authorities, the exclusive features of the Algerian identity.

Amazigh claim their rights in 'Arab' Morocco

June 23rd, 2008

Rabat, June 23 (DPA) Some years ago, a visitor to the Moroccan capital Rabat was unlikely to be reminded of the nation's Amazigh (Berber) population by other than details of tourism interest, such as water sellers in colourful costumes with their brass cups and jangling bells. Today, however, researchers interested in the Amazigh people can visit the imposing building housing the Royal Institute of Amazigh Culture (IRCAM) in a sign that the authorities' traditional lack of interest is giving way to a more inclusive attitude.

"Amazigh culture is part of the Moroccan national heritage," IRCAM director Ahmed Boukouss says in his large office decorated with pictures of Amazigh representatives meeting with King Mohammed VI.

Many Moroccans still reject the suggestion that they could be of Amazigh as well as Arab origin, but Boukouss believes Moroccans are increasingly becoming "proud of the country's Amazigh dimension."

While Westerners usually speak of Berbers, a word derived from the pejorative term of barbarians, the people thus referred to call themselves Amazigh, the plural of which is Imazighen, meaning "free men." Imazighen were the original inhabitants of North Africa who were conquered and converted to Islam by Arabs from the 7th century onwards.

The Imazighen are known for their resistance to foreign invaders, ranging from the Romans and Arabs to Spanish and French colonialists, who defeated an attempt to establish an independent republic in the largely Amazigh northern Rif region of Morocco in the 1920s.

Peoples related to the Moroccan Imazighen now live in more than half a dozen African countries, ranging from the Algerian Kabyles to Tuaregs in the Sahel. About 30 percent of Moroccans speak one of the country's three Amazigh dialects as their mother tongue, and the vast majority of Moroccans have at least some Amazigh blood.

Nevertheless, Moroccans base their identity on Arab and French influences, denying their African Amazigh roots, Amazigh activists say.

"Arabs are seen as having brought civilization" despite the fact that the Imazighen had their own kingdoms before Arab arrival, explained Rachid Raha, editor-in-chief of the newspaper Le Monde Amazigh.

When 1961-99 King Hassan II was still crown prince, Amazigh analysts say, repression against the Imazighen went as far as ruthlessly quashing a revolt in the Rif. King Hassan subsequently neglected the mountainous region, leaving it mired in poverty and dependent on cannabis cultivation.

Hassan's regime later took some timid steps towards the recognition of Amazigh culture. But it is only his son and successor Mohammed VI, whose mother is an Amazigh, that "clearly announced a new policy," as Boukouss puts it. The Amazigh language is already being taught in some 3,500 schools, though a lack of adequately trained teachers is slowing down its dissemination, Boukouss explained.

The teaching programme has required choosing an alphabet - the Tuareg one, known as Tifinagh - and creating a standard written language out of the Amazigh dialects, a process that is still going on.

There are, however, people opposed to the promotion of Amazigh language and culture at government ministries, Raha said.

Activists say school textbooks neglect and distort Amazigh history. Some officials and judges still refuse to allow parents to give their children Amazigh names, and academic interest in Amazigh history is only picking up.

Some activists see the royal reforms as a way of trying to "tame" the Amazigh movement and to pre-empt the kind of Amazigh agitation that has occurred in Algeria.

"The Moroccan establishment only supports the cultural part in an attempt to place the Imazighen outside the political sphere," Amazigh politician Ahmed Dgharni said at a meeting in the Spanish capital Madrid.

Dgharni's attempt to launch an Amazigh political party was thwarted on the grounds that ethnically based parties are illegal in Morocco.

Activists like Raha and Dgharni are seeking the recognition of Amazigh as an official language alongside Arabic and its widespread use in the media.

Equality for the Imazighen would also include self-government for regions with large Amazigh populations, and even turning Muslim Morocco into a secular state, because Arabic is the language of the Koran, Raha and other activists said.

Ba'athism

...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).
http://jihadwatch.org/dhimmiwatch/archives/015313.php

Like the Nazis before them, many Baathists saw Arab nationalism as 'true' 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.

Anti Israel, anti Jews

...the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Husseini, exploited social discontent, nationalism and religion to incite the Arabs of Palestine against the British and the Jews. His unscrupulous modus operandi and his reliance on frequent assassinations precluded any serious political opposition to his fascist rule. As a result of escalating Arab terrorism, Nazi-Germany decided to support the Mufti and his movement. On July 15, 1937, the Mufti told the German Consul-General in Jerusalem, W. Dohle, that the Palestinian Arabs were united in their "sympathy for the new Germany". But it was not only the Mufti's burgeoning relationship with Nazi-Germany that made his ilk of fascism so dangerous. The Mufti's views, deeply influenced by the Nazis fascist ideology and his diplomatic initiatives quickly became the single unifying political cause celebre of the entire Arab world. Throughout World War II, Nazi propaganda praised the Arab terrorists as freedom fighters. In turn, the Mufti and his followers did everything in their power to weaken Great Britain in Palestine, the Middle East and North Africa.

During the years 1948-1967, pan-Arab ideologies were the rage of the Muslim world. The Iraqi statesman, "Abd al-Rahman al-Bazzaz, a leading proponent of conservative pan-Arabism, likened the position of the Arabs in Islam to that of the Russians in world communism. The radical strain of pan-Arabism, however, became far more influential than its conservative counterpart.

The terror behind Iraq's Jewish exodus

Julia Magnet Last Updated: 10:39AM BST 28 Apr 2003

"In Baghdad, there are only 30 Jews left. Thirty. You can count them."

...As he weeps, his wife gestures at the television set in the corner of the sitting-room, where they are constantly flicking between al-Jazeera, Sky and Fox.

"It's because we are watching this all the time," she says. "It came back." Their old life has invaded their clean London sitting-room, and all the memories of persecution in Baghdad are flooding back - "like a dream".

It wasn't always a hard life. In the 1920s, Baghdad was 40 per cent Jewish: Jews made up the largest single community in the city and controlled up to 95 per cent of business.

The first finance minister of the country - established after the First World War, when the British drew up new borders - was a Jew, as was the justice minister. And when the British imported King Faisal I to Iraq, in 1921, one of his first visits was to the leaders of the Jewish community.

As late as 1948, after Israel's war of independence, there were still about 150,000 to 180,000 Jews in Iraq. Now there are between 30 and 40 left in the entire country. In 50 years, one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world has all but vanished.

Within the borders of Iraq, of course, is the city of Babylon, where the Jews came after their first exile from Jerusalem in 587bc. Iraq is also the birthplace of Abraham. Islam arrived only when the Arabs invaded in ad641 - more than 1,000 years after the Jews had first settled.
... "In the first half of the 20th century," he says, "there was a sense in which Baghdad was a Jewish city: we were the educated, the middle classes."

[...] Sadly, what this couple remember is only an interlude: the persecution of the Jews had started 20 years before. In June 1941, there was the Farhud - or pogrom - during which "the mob wreaked havoc", recalls Kahtan.

"For two days, they killed Jews in the streets, kidnapped girls, raped them, killed them and mutilated the bodies. They burned property, looted houses - it's estimated that about 600 Jews were killed in those two days."

For Jews born later, such as the Edgware couple, the public hangings of Jewish teenagers in 1969 and the omnipresence of the secret police are fresher memories. But their insistence on the "nice life" of the past echoes a pattern set long before.

... In the Thirties, the rise of pan-Arab nationalism coincided with the second King Faisal's admiration of the Nazis.

By 1936, says Sylvia Kedourie, widow of the eminent Middle Eastern scholar Elie Kedourie, there were "episodes of Jews being killed in the streets that led to a growing sense of insecurity". Meanwhile, Zionism was on the rise, and though the Iraqi Jews were hardly Zionists, many Arabs began to see them as hostile, intent on conquering Arab territory.

The Nazi agenda crystallised Arab anti-semitism. On April 3, 1941, the rabidly pro-Nazi Rashid Ali, a former prime minister, with a group of similarly inclined politicians and army officers, staged a coup against Faisal II. Rashid Ali's aim was to root out British influence and ally Iraq with the Nazis.

His new "government" declared war on Britain, and was promptly defeated. On May 31, Rashid Ali fled. But his soldiers and policemen, inflamed by Nazi ideas, started the Farhud - aided by the Arab mob. Although the British Army was stationed outside Baghdad, it waited for two days before stopping the massacre: "They didn't want to wound Iraqi pride," says Kahtan.

"I was a very young child at the time, but certain things are imprinted on your mind. On the first day, the mob came to our door to do their business. The house was rented from a Muslim neighbour, of the old generation, and he came down with his rifle, shot in the air, and said: 'These people are under my protection; anyone who lifts a finger will be dead' - and he drove them off. [...] "When the whole question of the partition of Palestine came up," says Dr Zubaida, "all the Arab countries sent armies to Palestine, including Iraq. This generated a kind of hysteria, and then Jews who were prominent in public life started being sacked and students in higher education started being expelled."

Kahtan was 10 in 1948, when the state of Israel was declared. The son of his Muslim neighbour - the one who had saved his family - called him into his house.

"He was 19. He showed me a map and said: 'Today, seven armies are going to attack Israel, kill all the Jews and throw the survivors into the sea.' Now, that was the son - you see what a change of mentality had taken place. I'll leave it to your imagination to think what change of mentality has taken place between 1948 and now."

It doesn't take much. In 1949, a court of law falsely accused Safiq Adas, one of Iraq's most prominent Jewish businessmen, of selling arms to Israel. The charge was ridiculous: Adas sold scrap metal to Italy.

He protested his innocence and refused to pay the bribes that might have saved his life. Although he had some of the best lawyers in Iraq, his defence was not allowed to call witnesses. He was hanged in front of his house as his wife and children watched. His Muslim partner was never charged and continued the business.

This, Elie Kedourie has written, was the moment when the Jews realised the full extent of their vulnerability: they were no longer under the protection of the law and there was now little difference between the mob and Iraqi court justice. Everyone I spoke to mentioned Safiq Adas's "trial". [...]

His escape on a smuggler's boat, like all those in the 1960s and 70s, was organised by Israeli agents who mapped out the routes, paid the necessary bribes and met the refugees in Iran. "Israel was paying to save the Jews," Kahtan said. "I owe my life to the state of Israel."

After the Six-Day War, the Iraqi government took its revenge on the few thousand Jews left in Baghdad. The woman in Edgware recalls: "They started putting young people - youngsters of 16 years old - on trial, just because they were Jews.

"They would just catch them in the streets - whomever they could find - and take them to prison. Then they would torture them and put them on trial as spies.

"And they hanged them in the main square of Baghdad. People were dancing around the gallows there, dancing and celebrating, distributing sweets. 'What a big day, what a happy day', catching the Jews and hanging them."

The silent exodus of Jewish refugees from Muslim lands

Here is the trailer for the superb filmmaker Pierre Rehov's Silent Exodus. Silent Exodus was selected at the International Human Rights Film Festival of Paris in 2004 and presented at the UN Geneva Human Rights Annual Convention that same year.

Here is a summary of the film:

In 1948 nearly one million Jews lived in Arab lands. But In barely twenty years, they have become forgotten fugitives, expelled from their native lands, forgotten by history and where the victims themselves have hidden their fate under a cloak of silence.

A people whom legend have always associated with "wandering" many of these Jews from Arab lands had lived there for thousands of years and accepted their fate, through good times and bad times.

But 1948, the beginning of their exodus, also saw the birth of the State of Israel.

And, while the Arab armies were preparing to invade the young refugee-country, the survivors of the Shoah were piling up in rickety boats. Meanwhile a few hundred thousand Arabs from Palestine were getting ready to flee their homes, convinced that they would return as winners and conquerors.

Soon - by a terrible twist of fate they, as well, began to fill up refugee camps and passed on their refugee status to new generations.

The Jews, however, did not receive refugee status.

They had just rediscovered the land of their birthright.

And if they came from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq or from Yemen, if they had lost everything, even their relatives and their cemeteries, they were ready to rebuild their lives in the West and for many - in Israel - and try to forget their past.

Without ever asking for compensation or the right of return, or even wishing that their story be told...

And here also is an illuminating article on the subject by Magdi Cristiano Allam, "The Arabs Without the Jews: Roots of a Tragedy" (translated from Italian by Lyn and Lawrence Julius):

Israel is the keeper of a mutilated Arab identity, the repository for the guilty consciences of the Arab peoples, the living witness to a true history of the Arab countries, continuously denied, falsified and ignored.

Seeing Pierre Rehov's documentary film 'The Silent Exodus' about the expulsion and flight of a million Sephardi Jews helped me gain a better understanding of the tragedy of a community that was integral and fundamental to Arab society. Above all it has revealed to me the very essence of the catastrophe that befell it, a catastrophe which the mythical Arab nation has never once called into question. In a flash of insight I could see that the tragedy of the Jews and the catastrophe of the Arabs are two facets of the same coin. By expelling the Jews who were settled on the southern and eastern shores of the Mediterranean centuries before they were arabised and islamised, the Arabs have in fact begun the lethal process of mutilating their own identity and despoiling their own history. By losing their Jews the Arabs have lost their roots and have ended up by losing themselves.

As has often happened in history, the Jews were the first victims of hatred and intolerance. All the "others" had their turn soon enough, specifically the Christians and other religious minorities, heretical and secular Muslims and finally, those Muslims who do not fit exactly into the ideological framework of the extreme nationalists and Islamists. There has not been a single instance in this murky period of our history when the Arab states have been ready to condemn the steady exodus of Christians, ethnic-religious minorities, enlightened and ordinary Muslims, while Muslims plain and simple have become the primary victims of Islamic terror.

Underlying the Arab 'malaise' is an identity crisis that neither Nasserist nor Ba'athist pan-Arabism, nor the Islamism of the Saudi Wahabis, the Muslim Brotherhood, Khomeini and Bin Laden has been able to solve. It's a contagious identity crisis, spreading to and taking hold of the Arab and Muslim communities in the West.

I remember that around the mid-1970s the Arab exam in civic education taken in both state and public schools in Egypt defined Arab identity thus: "the Arabs are a nation united by race, blood, history, geography, religion and destiny." This was a falsification of an historical truth based on ethno-religious pluralism, an ideological deception aimed at erasing all differences and promoting the theory of one race overlapping with a phantom Arab nation in thrall to unchallengeable leaders. It was directly inspired by Nazi and fascist theories of racial purity and supremacy which appealed to the leadership and ideologues of pan-Arabism and Islamism. It is no wonder that in this context Manichean Israel is perceived as a foreign body to be rejected, a cancer produced by American imperialism to divide and subjugate the Arab world.

The historical truth is that the Middle Eastern peoples, in spite of their arabisation and islamisation from the 7th century onward, continued to maintain a specific identity reflecting their indigenous and millenarian ethnic roots - cultural, linguistic, religious and national. The Berbers, for example, who constitute half the population of Morocco and a third of that of Algeria, have nothing or very little in common with the Bedouin tribes at the heart of Saudi or Jordanian society. When in 1979 Egypt was sidelined from the Arab League for signing a peace treaty with Israel President Sadat restored its Pharaonic Egyptian identity which he proudly contrasted with its Arabness. Here was an isolated but significant attempt to recapture an indigenous identity - advertising historical honesty and political liberation while saying 'enough is enough' to rampant lies and demagogy. Before the screening of the 'Silent Exodus' in the Congress Hall in Milan, a gentleman in his Seventies came up to me and said, in perfect Egyptian dialect: "I am a Jew from Alexandria. I have recently been in Tunisia and Algeria. I have to say that people there are not like us, they don't have the sense of irony that distinguishes us Egyptians." I smiled and replied that indeed, the Egyptians have a reputation as jokers. They are capable of laughing at anything, including themselves.

What struck me was the "us" - "us Egyptians": even if we were both Italian citizens, he a Jew and I a Muslim. It reminded me that just after the 1967 defeat, I discovered by complete accident that the girl I was in love with - we both were 15 - was Jewish. For me she was a girl like any other. But for the police who submitted me to intensive interrogation she was a 'spy for Israel' and I was her accomplice.

In fact 'the Silent Exodus' testifies that anti-Semitism and the pogroms against the Jews of the Middle East preceded the birth of the state of Israel and the advent of ideological pan-Arabism and pan-Islamism. It infers that hatred and violence against the Jews could originate in an ideological interpretation of the Koran and the life of the prophet Muhammed taken out of context.

It would be a mistake to generalise and not to take into account that for long periods coexistence was possible between the Muslims, Christians and Jews of the Middle East, at a time when in Europe the Catholic Inquisition was repressing the Jews and when the Nazi Holocaust was trying to exterminate them. In the same way, one cannot ignore Israel's responsibility together with Arab leaders in the emergence of the drama of millions of Palestinian refugees and the unresolved question of a Palestinian state.

The fact remains that of the million Jews who at the end of 1945 were an integral part of the Arab population, only 5,000 remain. These Arab Jews, expelled or who fled at a moment's notice, have become an integral part of the Israeli population. They continue to represent a human injustice and an historical tragedy. Above all, they are indicative of an Arab civil and identity catastrophe. That is why to recognise the wrongs committed towards the Arab Jews - as the maverick Libyan leader colonel Gaddafi has recently done - by objectively rediscovering their past and millenarian roots, by finding again their tolerant and plural history and by totally and sincerely reconciling themselves with themselves, the Arabs could free themselves from the ideological obscurantism which has relegated them to the most basic level of human development and has changed the region into the most problematic and confict-ridden on earth.

Recognising the Jewish 'Nakba'

Acknowledging the plight of Jewish refugees from Arab countries written out of history ' could be the key to Middle East peace

Lyn Julius guardian.co.uk, Wednesday 25 June 2008 09.00 BST Article history

This week, before an audience of peers and MPs, an 80-year-old Jewish refugee named Sarah told the story of her traumatic departure in 1956 in the wake of the Suez crisis. Her husband lost his job. Taken ill, she had remained behind in Egypt with her new baby, while he left to look for work in Europe. She departed with nothing ' along with 25,000 other Jews expelled by Nasser and forced to sign a document pledging that they would never return. In a final act of spite, the customs officers ransacked her suitcase and even her baby's carrycot.

Sarah was speaking at a House of Lords briefing as part of the Justice for Jews from Arab Countries congress. JJAC, an international coalition of 77 organisations, is holding its inaugural congress in London, and aims to highlight the neglected rights of (according to indisputable UN figures) 856,000 Jewish refugees like Sarah.

The exodus began 60 years ago when Arab states, hell-bent on crushing the new state of Israel militarily, also turned on their peaceful Jewish communities. Street violence killed over 150 Jews. Within 10 years, more than half the Jews had fled or been expelled, following discriminatory legislation , extortion, arrests, internment and executions. Those who remained became subjugated, political hostages of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Today 99.5% - all but 4,500 - have gone. As the historian Nathan Weinstock has observed, not even the Jews of 1939 Germany had been so thoroughly "ethnically cleansed".

The displacement of Jews from Arab countries was not just a backlash to the creation of Israel and the Arabs' humiliating defeat. The "push" factors were already in place. Arab League states drafted a law in November 1947 branding their Jews as enemy aliens. But non-Muslim minorities, historically despised as dhimmis with few rights, were already being oppressed by Nazi-inspired pan-Arabism and Islamism. These factors sparked the conflict with Zionism, and drive it to this day.

The Jewish "Nakba" - Arabic for "catastrophe" ' not only emptied cities like Baghdad (a third Jewish); it tore apart the cultural, social and economic fabric in Arab lands. Jews lost homes, synagogues, hospitals, schools, shrines and deeded land five times the size of Israel. Their ancient heritage - predating Islam by 1,000 years ' was destroyed.

The Jewish state, which struggled to take in 600,000, many of them stateless, is both a response to Arab antisemitism, and the legitimate political expression of an indigenous Middle Eastern people. Half Israel's Jewish population is descended from refugees from Arab and Muslim lands.

Arab governments have never admitted committing mass violations of Jewish human and civil rights, much less apologised or offered restitution. Over 120 UN resolutions deal with the 711,000 Palestinian refugees; not one refers to the greater number of Jewish refugees. Although peace initiatives have been worded to refer generically to the "refugee problem", Jewish and Arab, Israel has been reluctant to politicise the Jewish refugee issue, having successfully integrated them as full citizens: Arab denial has thus conspired with Israeli silence to airbrush Jewish refugees out of the picture, leading to obfuscation, distortion and decontextualisation.

This April, JJAC scored a major success, however, when the US House of Representatives adopted its first resolution (pdf) on Jewish refugees; future resolutions mentioning Palestinian refugees must refer explicitly to Jewish refugees from Arab countries.

The resolution is about recognition, not restitution, although Jewish losses have been quantified at twice Palestinian losses. Such resolutions could lead to a peace settlement by recognising that there were victims on both sides. Thus justice for Jews is not just a moral imperative, but the key to reconciliation.

Moreover, a major hurdle to peace could be removed if the Palestinian "right of return" were counterbalanced by the Jewish right not to return to Arab tyrannies, recognising a de facto population exchange of roughly equal numbers.

The Jewish refugees, who spent up to 12 years in Israeli ma'abarot (transit camps), could also serve as a model for the resettlement (in host Arab countries or an eventual Palestinian state) of Arab refugees languishing in camps.

Meanwhile, awareness of the "Jewish Nakba" is growing: a Libyan Jew who fled in fear of her life has addressed the UN Human Rights Council. Jewish refugees were mentioned at Westminster and discussed on BBC radio. In the US, Canada and at the European parliament, the campaign for justice is steaming ahead.

At Tuesday's briefing, Sarah will be testifying to the fact that two sets of refugees emerged from the Arab-Israeli conflict. The UK will be urged to look at what role it could usefully play in seeking to resolve issues affecting all Middle East refugees. Fifty-two years ago, Sarah rejoined her husband in England; they rebuilt their lives and put Egypt behind them. This does not mean that she should be denied justice.

A Backgrounder of the Nazi Activities in North Africa and the Middle East During the Era of the Holocaust
 
Key issues the reader should note: 1. The Islamic leadership (vis-à-vis the Mufti) did in fact have a significant relationship with the German government during the era of the Holocaust. 2. Pro-Nazi sentiment often resulted in grave consequences against the Jews in Arab countries during the Holocaust. 3. The Germans influenced the Arabs resulting in incitement that led to attacks against Jews in Arab cities during the Holocaust. 4. The Mufti promoted the idea to the Nazis of destroying the Jews before they could escape to Palestine. 5. The Axis powers persecuted Jews in North Africa during the Holocaust... 
 
• Bernard Lewis states: "We know that within weeks of Hitler's coming to power in 1933, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem got in touch with the German consul general in Jerusalem, Doctor Heinrich Wolff, and offered his services." 1 There, the Mufti spoke approvingly of the Nazi's Jewish policies, particularly of the anti-Jewish boycott in Germany.
 
• A Pan-Arab Committee established at Baghdad in the Spring of 1933 approached Fritz Grobba, the German Ambassador to Iraq, two years later with proposals for closer ties and cooperation.
 
• Hitler's Mein Kampf was translated into four different Arabic translations and circulated between 1933-1939 in Beirut, Baghdad, Cairo and Berlin.
 
• In the first few months of WWII, shops in the towns of Syria would frequently show posters with Arabic sayings: "In heaven God is your ruler, on earth Hitler." In the streets of Aleppo... Damascus a popular verse in a local dialect said: "No more 'Monsieur', no more 'Mister'-God in heaven, on earth Hitler!"

Nazi Hatred Dwells in the Arab World
By Shelomo Alfassa   February 23, 2007
 
...Although the Allies killed Nazi troops, destroyed their buildings, burned Nazi books, and even the fact that German Fuehrer killed himself, the Nazi spirit lived on. This spirit of Jew hatred was brought into the Arab world by Amin Al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.
 
The relationship between Amin Al-Husseini and the Third Reich was strengthened when the Mufti visited the German Consul General at Jerusalem in 1937. After that, he met with Eichmann when he visited Palestine. This was when the Nazis were examining the possibility of deporting German Jews to Palestine. It has been reported that based on war-crimes testimony and the Eichmann trial transcripts, Eichmann and the Mufti enjoyed a close relationship. The Mufti would soon become the spiritual leader of the Islamic legions that were trained by-and-for the Nazis.
 
The rise of Hitler to power in 1933 marked a turning point in the new mufti?s activities. He sent a cable of congratulations to the Nazi leader and expressed support for the Jewish boycott in Germany. Soon after Hitler's Mein Kampf was translated into four different Arabic translations and circulated between 1933-1939 in Beirut, Baghdad, Cairo and Berlin. In the first few months of WWII, shops in the towns of Syria would frequently show posters with Arabic sayings: "In heaven God is your ruler, on earth Hitler." In the streets of Aleppo, Homs and Damascus a popular verse in a local dialect said: "No more 'Monsieur', no more 'Mister'-God in heaven, on earth Hitler!"
 
Anti-Jewish feeling continued to mount in the Middle East during the 1930s, as the Fascist and Nazi regimes and doctrines made increasing sense to many Arab nationalists. King Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia sought German arms and contacts and was favorably received. Various delegations of Syrians and Iraqis attended the Nrnberg party congresses, and there were several different Arabic translations of Mein Kampf. Both the German and Italian regimes were active in propaganda in the Arab world, and there was much pro-German sentiment in Egypt.
 
Anti-Semitic elements seized upon the Palestine problem and Arab Revolt of
1936-1939 to portray international Jewry, including the Jews of the Maghrib, in a negative way to the Muslims, many of whom expressed solidarity with the Palestinian Arabs against Zionism and the British Authorities in the Mandate. Nazi propaganda broadcasts from Berlin and Stuttgart, as well as broadcasts from fascist Italy, added fuel to the ongoing anti-Jewish campaigns.
 
As part of the new, tough policy against Arab violence, the British dismissed Al-Husseini from his post as head of the Supreme Moslem Council. Fearing arrest, on October 12, 1937, the grand mufti donned disguise and fled to Lebanon, where the French gave him asylum. During 1937, Damascus was center for anti-Jewish activities. During this same year, a Nazi delegation went to Syria where a symbiosis was developed that would lead to intensified anti-Jewish sentiment, especially among both German and Arab youth.
 
Nazi Germany started transmitting in Arabic for the first time in April 1938. Germany thus became an Italian radio surrogate, providing a new programming dimension by the addition of anti-Jewish and anti-British themes broadcast by several prominent Arab exiles, including Rashid Ali El-Ghailani, an ex-prime minister of Iraq, and the Mufti, Al-Husseini.
 
The Mufti developed a world headquarters in Germany. In an office in Berlin, his activities included: 1. radio propaganda; 2. espionage and fifth column activities in the Middle East; 3. organizing Muslims into military units in Axis-occupied countries and in North Africa and Russia; and 4. establishment of the Arab Legions and the Arab Brigade. These groups were trained by the Nazis and used by them. The Mufti's radio broadcasts were some of the most violent pro-Axis broadcasts ever produced. He had at least six stations, Berlin, Zeissen, Bari, Rome, Tokyo and Athens. He used these radio broadcasts to tell Muslims across the world to commit acts of sabotage and kill the Jews.
 
Hitler had made it clear that the project of killing Jews was by no means confined to Europe. As he explained to the Mufti, "his hopes of military victory in Africa and the Middle East would bring about the destruction of Jews in the Arab World." In November of 1941 Hitler informed the Mufti at a meeting in Berlin that he intended to kill every Jew living in the Arab world, including those in Palestine as well as "Syria, Iraq, Iran, the Arabian peninsula, Egypt, and French Northwest Africa." Hitler asserted that, in the event of a German advance into the Middle East, the German objective would be the "destruction" of "Judaism" in Palestine.
 
During 1941, in Mosul, Iraq, pro-Nazi Arab activists continued to propagandize against Jews. In Baghdad, when the war film For Freedom showed in cinemas, audiences cheered Hitler and booed Churchill. Leaflets circulated: "Rashid Ali, the Leader of all the Arabs, is returning with ropes and gallows to hang a number of criminal Jews, Christian traitors and other enemies of Islam."
 
October 5, 1943, the Mufti arrived in Frankfort, Germany visiting the Research Institute on the Jewish Problem where he declared that Arabs and Germans were, "Partners and allies in the battle against world Jewry." The Mufti beamed radio sermons to the Balkans, the countries of North Africa, and the Muslims in India. Arabs in Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq and Egypt were called upon for Jihad against the British, these statements included the suggestion Muslims could "save their souls by massacring the Jewish infidels" they came across.
 
In a letter to Himmler, dated September 28, 1944, General Berger of the Waffen S.S. reported: "Today the Mufti came to see me for a long talk. He talked about his work and noted happily that the day is nearing he will head an army to conquer Palestine." It was during this same year that the Mufti developed an Arab Brigade in 1944 that included Arabs trained in Holland by the Germans.
 
It was said the Mufti even visited Auschwitz and Maldanek. In both of these death camps, he paid close attention to the efficiency of the crematorium, spoke to the leading personnel and was generous in his praise for those who were reported as particularly conscientious in their work. He was on friendly terms with such notorious practitioners of the "Final Solution" as Rudolf Hess, the overlord of Auschwitz; Franz Zeireis of Mauthausen; Dr. Seidl of Theresienstadt; and Kramer, the butcher of Belsen.
 
After VE Day, May 8, 1945, Nazi officials were prepared to allow Jews to be diverted from concentration camps and even let children go to Palestine via "illegal" ships -- all in exchange for cash. Yet, Al-Husseini insisted they get dispatched to concentration camps. That same year, liberated Yugoslavia sought to indict the Mufti as a war criminal for his activities in Bosnia, but with help from the Nazi SS, the Mufti had already escaped Germany with other members of his clan."
 
While it is easy to reinvent history, it is not easy to overlook original first hand documents, tens of thousands which show the Mufti of Jerusalem in bed with Hitler. As Dr. Bernard Lewis of Princeton University recently said, "The Nazi propaganda impact was immense. We see it in Arabic memoirs of the period...."
 
The fierce anti-Jewish hatred that was exacerbated by the Mufti in the Islamic world, fueled by the German war machine, continues to resonate today throughout the Arab and Persian world. Incitement, instituted decades earlier, remains a root cause of anti-Semitism as well as the reason for hostility toward the State of Israel after its formation. This is the reason why over 900,000 Jewish people, born in Arab counries, were made refugees after 1948. Simply, because while the Nazis were destroyed and the Holocaust ended, the intense hostility instituted during that era lived on -- and continues to live on in the Islamic world.

Dilemmas of Dhimmitude
Lyn Julius
Jewish Quarterly. No. 197. Spring 2005
 
[...]
Newly independent Iraq gave formal undertakings on minority rights when joining the League of Nations in 1932 -- and massacred thousands of Assyrian Christians within the year. Xenophobic nationalism, together with anti-British and anti-French feeling, gave rise to political parties and paramilitary youth movements of the Nazi and fascist type. The German envoy to Iraq, Dr Fritz Grobba, set about disseminating Nazi ideology and anti-Jewish propaganda, reinforcing local prejudice. Dozens of Jews were quietly dismissed (although some were reinstated after the community protested). Laws were gradually brought in to deprive Jews of jobs, then education and, eventually, property, residence and free movement. The Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, colluded with the ex-Prime Minister, Rashid Ali, to engineer a pro-Nazi coup, eventually culminating in the farhoud massacre of 1941. For two days and one night of looting, rape and murder, the mob rampaged through Jewish districts of Baghdad. One hundred and seventy Jews were killed.
 
Naturally, the Palestine question was also to have serious repercussions on the Jewish population. Menahem Salih Daniel, a Baghdad Jewish leader, expressed his misgivings as early as 1922 in a letter to the Secretary of the Zionist Organisation in London (quoted by Nessim Rejwan), even though there had as yet been no active resistance to Zionism:
 
It is . . . the feeling of every Arab that it is a violation of his legitimate rights, which it is his duty to denounce and fight to the best of his ability. Iraq always having been an active centre of Arab culture and activity, the public mind is always stirred up as regards Palestine.
 
One Jewess, growing up in the 1930s, recalls how the mob would rampage every anniversary of the Balfour declaration carrying clubs dipped in tar. It fell to a kindly neighbour to shelter her until the mob had passed.
 
In the 1941 farhoud too, when the forces of law and order failed to come to the Jews' rescue, the last line of defence was again the kindly neighbour. As Nessim Rejwan writes,
 
Throughout the disturbances, with a few exceptions, Jewish homes in mixed neighbourhoods were defended and hundreds of Jews were saved by the willingness of their Muslim neighbours to protect them, in some cases at the cost of their own lives.
 
The broader picture
 
For the Jews, the 1930s and 1940s were a time of turmoil across the Arab world. Seven years before the farhoud, Jews had been killed in the pogrom of Constantine, Algeria. In Libya, 136 Jews, 36 of them children, were slaughtered in 1945. That same year, bloody riots erupted in Egypt and Aden, as in Syria in 1947.
 
All these events, targeting civilian communities, predated the creation of Israel. They demonstrated the vulnerability and insecurity to which Jews were exposed up to 50 years ago. Things might have turned out differently -- Crown Prince Faisal, later the British-appointed King of Iraq, had signed a pact in 1919 with Chaim Weizmann viewing with sympathy the establishment of a Jewish home in Palestine. Instead, Arab ruling elites made Zionism a crime from 1948 onwards, passed discriminatory legislation and whipped up popular feeling against the Jews to distract attention from their illegitimacy, their internal problems and obligations.
[...]
 
The situation today
 
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the concept of Ottoman pluralism (whatever its limitations) could not be more remote. The Arab world is almost monolithically Muslim and judenrein. Pan-Arab nationalism is a spent force but pan-Islamism is asserting its grip. Those Copts, Assyrians and other groups who have not fled continue to be persecuted and marginalized.
 
The mass media of the Muslim world pump out a new antisemitism, inspired by Saudi Wahabism, fed by Koranic accounts of Jewish treachery and drawing on every antisemitic motif and conspiracy theory in the book. This antisemitism is a product of the Israel-Arab dispute, but a fight between two nationalisms over the same piece of land has changed, with the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, into an intractable religious conflict. Israel is an affront to the umma: what was once Muslim territory can never become non-Muslim. Palestine must be reconquered by jihad and the Jews revert to their natural status of dhimmitude. Until this alarming religious dimension is addressed and the forces of Islamic militancy subdued, the conflict will be insoluble.
http://www.isranet.org/Israzine/Israzine_V2N21_Dilemma.htm
 
...One thousand years before the advent of Islam, Jews in substantial numbers resided in what are today Arab countries. For centuries under Islamic rule, following the Moslem conquest of the region, Jews were considered 'dhimmi', or second-class citizens. But they were nonetheless permitted limited religious, educational, professional, and business opportunities.
 
It is within the last 55 years that the world witnessed the mass displacement of over 850,000 long-time Jewish residents from the totalitarian regimes, the brutal dictatorships and monarchies of Syria, Trans-Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco.
 
The rise of pan-Arabism and independence movements in the 20th century resulted in an orchestrated, multi-state campaign against Zionism. These states vehemently opposed the establishment of a homeland for the Jewish people. Hundreds of thousands of Jews resident in Arab countries were ensnared in this struggle.

Culture of Hate

A racism which denies the history and sufferings of its victims.

By Bat Yeor August 2, 2002, 8:45 a.m.

...If the liberation movement of the Jews in their ancestral homeland is interpreted as racism, then all the movements of liberation from expropriation and servitude imposed by jihad are racist. Such a stance reinstates the imperialism of the Islamic jihad, which has claimed millions of victims over three continents during more than a millennium, deported an incalculable number of slaves, and annihilated entire peoples, destroying their history, their monuments, and their culture. Have the Copts of Egypt a right to their history and their language? Do the Kabili of North Africa have a right to theirs? We must acknowledge all the victims of the racism that jihad creates, a racism which denies the history, sufferings, and memories of those conquered.
Arab racism consists of calling the Land of Israel, Arab land, whereas no Palestinian province, village, or town, including Jerusalem is mentioned either in the Koran or in any Arabic text before the end of the ninth century. On the contrary, these locations are mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, which represents the religious and historical heritage of the Jewish people. The Bible, which tells the history of this country, tells it in Hebrew, the language of the country, and not in Arabic. Palestinian racism consists of asserting that the whole history of Israel, biblical history, is Arab, Islamic, and Palestinian history.

I'm a Liberal, But...
An interview with Bernard-Henri Lévy
The celebrity polemicist on the resurgence of anti-Semitism, an Arab brand of fascism... The brothers in democracy, along with others particularly in Europe, must avoid the gaping pitfalls that lie before them: anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism, and anti-interventionism. Particularly where fascism appears among Islamists or elsewhere, it must be denounced and attacked. If fascism, or for that matter brutality of any sort, appears in the developing world, anti-imperialism must not interfere with the denunciations or immediate calls to intervene, as Lévy believes has happened in Darfur
http://www.guernicamag.com/interviews/800/an_interview_with_bernardhenri_1/

Like pan-Arabism, pan-Islamism is an exclusivist ideology. By rejecting the modern conception of citizenship, it rejects the idea of non-Muslim civilian participation. Absolutist by nature, its discourse excludes non-Muslims, which explains why the flame of pan-Arabism was often borne by Christian Arabs, uneasy about the hegemonic designs of political Islam. Non-Muslim Arabs (Christian Arabs, Druze, etc.), excluded from the pan-Islamic club, still have an honorable place within pan-Arabism. And non-Arab Muslims (Turks, Iranians, Kurds), excluded from the pan-Arab club, can still join pan-Islamism. But the Israelis, being neither Arabs nor Muslims, are doubly a minority.

The Jewish state is not an intruder in the Middle East. It is the extension and the representative of one of the most ancient civilizations of this part of the world. Everything links Israel to this region: geography, history, culture but also religion and language. The Jewish religion is the primary theological reference and the very foundation of Islam and Eastern Christianity. Hebrew and Arabic are as close to each other as two languages of Latin origin.

Arab Racism

One of the accusations which the various Arab countries (including Egypt and Jordan which have peace treaties with Israel) often make against Israel is that "Zionism is racism". Defining Zionism, the national liberation movement of jews, the victims of racism, as racism is particularly cynical, yet it seems that the Arabs have succeeded to convince the leaders of some nations, themselves victims of racism, to support this vicious accusation.

The latest attempt to define Zionism as racism was at the 2001 UNESCO conference which was held in Durban, South Africa. The resolution which was initiated by Arab countries enjoyed the support of most participants. Especially painful was the support of such African leaders as Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. Some Western countries, however, notably Australia and Canada, objected and accused the conference of hypocrisy. The Canadian delegation, for example, issued the following statement: "Canada is still here today only because we wanted to have our voice decry the attempts at this Conference to de-legitimize the State of Israel and to dishonor the history and suffering of the Jewish people. We believe, and we have said in the clearest possible terms, that it was inappropriate - wrong - to address the Palestinian-Israel conflict in this forum. We have said, and will continue to say, that anything - any process, any declaration, any language - presented in any forum that does not serve to advance a negotiated peace that will bring security, dignity and respect to the people of the region is - and will be - unacceptable to Canada."

It was for that reason that both Israel and the United States under the leadership of Secretary Colin Powell, himself no stranger to racism, pulled their delegations from the conference. The final text adopted by the conference drops all direct criticism of Israel, but does recognize the Palestinians' right to self-determination and expresses concern at their plight under foreigh occupation.
That was only the latest attempt to define Zionism as racism. In November 1975, the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379 declared that "Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination" In December 1991, the General Assembly rescinded this resolution through Resolution 4686.

All those years the Arab countries continued to promote this false notion. It is therefore of interest to check how different things are on the other side of the fence, namely in the Arab countries. Even though there are many blacks who live in those countries the question whether they are subject to racism was academic for a long time and one had to resort to circumstantial evidence in order to answer it. One well-known fact is that most Arabs refer to blacks as "Abed" which means "slave" in Arabic. This seems to say something about the situation of racism in the Arab world. Today, due to the recent events in Darfur and the active role that the Arab Janjaweed play in the slaughter of black Africans there, this question has become more urgent and relevant than ever before. It is time for the UN and the whole world to fight it NOW

Darwish also disagreed with the labeling of Israeli conduct towards Palestinians as "apartheid."
"They call Israel an apartheid state," she said. œYet who is worse, the Arab world, where not a single Jew can be free, or Israel, where Arabs are free to work with Koranic verses printed on their outerclothes?

Islamist Fundamentalism
A number of Islamist bookshops stock politico-religious works containing arguments that nurture antisemitism, often through anti-Zionist or anti-Jewish discourse. As of 1996, one of these bookshops (in Brussels) was selling The Founding Myths of Israeli Politics, the antisemitic and Holocaust denying work of former French communist turned fundamentalist Muslim Roger Garaudy.

Fundamentalist Islamist circles in Belgium seem to have some influence among Muslim youth in the country, some of whom chanted antisemitic slogans during anti-Israel demonstrations organized in Brussels and Antwerp. Activists within the Maghreb community have circulated anti-Jewish propaganda, despite calls for calm issued by various Islamic religious and cultural bodies. Antisemitism appears to be promoted by Islamic fundamentalist groups such as Centre Islamique de Belgique. In April 2002 the Centre pour l'égalité des chances et la lutte contre le racisme (CECLR, the federal government's public anti-racist agency) lodged a complaint against the Centre Islamique on the grounds that it had breached the laws against racism and revisionism. The Centre Islamique had broadcast on its Internet site a short video document ' produced by Lebanese students ' equating the State of Israel with a Nazi dictatorship. In June 2002, CECLR lodged another complaint against the Antwerp-based Arab European League, also for infringing the anti-racist law.

Arab European League Behind Anti-Jewish Riots in Belgium
 
By BEILA RABINOWITZ and WILLIAM MAYER
 
January 6, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Arab European League's anti-Israel protests in Antwerp, Belgium held on Sunday descended into rioting and attacks throughout the Jewish quarter of the city. As a result, Antwerp Jews are living in fear and many are afraid to venture out on the streets.
 
The Dutch based Telegraaf reported, "After the demonstration organised by the Arab European League a number of demonstrators went to the Jewish quarter of Antwerp where disturbances took place." [source, http://www.telegraaf.nl/buitenland/2902076/__Rellen_na_AEL-manifestatie__.html?p=15,2]
 
By mid-afternoon approximately 200 rioters headed for the Jewish district while conducting a campaign of wanton destruction, smashing car windows and damaging trams and buses. Efforts by the police to close the district off were met by violence by the largely Muslim crowd.
 
According to Michael Frielich, editor in chief of the Jewish magazine Joodse Aktueel, "The Jewish community is extremely upset about the presence of Hamas-flags at the demonstration for the stopping of the bombardment of the Gaza Strip in Brussels¦According to Freilach the green flag with the white text from Hamas is a symbol of a terrorist organisation and is forbidden in Belgium..." http://www.standaard.be/Artikel/Detail.aspx?artikelId=DMF31122008_060#
 
This was not the first time the AEL has staged attacks on Jews. In April, 2002 a similar episode occurred where store fronts of Jewish owned businesses were smashed while the rioters chanted, "Hamas," and "Osama bin-Laden." [see, http://www.defenddemocracy.org/research_topics/research_topics_show.htm?doc_id=228652]
 
The Arab European League has lately been gaining ground in Belgium.
 
Diab Abu Jah Jah, at the time the group's leader was labeled as the "Pimp of the Profit" by Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh, during a debate. [see, http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/89] In 2004 van Gogh was assassinated by a Muslim youth, Mohammed Bouyeri, who was upset over van Gogh's criticism of radical Islam.
 
Jah Jah, a known terror friendly individual who went to Lebanon in 2006 to show solidarity with Hezbollah, has also been quoted as describing 9/11 as, "sweet revenge."
 
The AEL was instrumental in attempting to bring a lawsuit against then Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon "for war crimes" threatening him with arrest if he traveled to Belgium. The organization is violent and openly supports terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah. That they are allowed to demonstrate and terrorize Jews in Belgium is more proof that Europe [Eurabia] is wilting under the jihad being conducted by its Muslim residents and it remains problematic whether the Continent has the will to protect its Jewish population and thus halt the trend towards creation of Jewish ghettoes as a response to violence and threats of aggression.
 
Belgium was not the only place in Europe where Jews were recently attacked by Arabs. In Odense, Denmark two Israelis who were selling products from the Dead Sea, were shot by men shouting at them in Arabic. Danish authorities have arrested a Palestinian Arab [born in Lebanon] with Danish citizenship in connection with the crime.
 
According to Yossi Levi, the Foreign Ministry spokesman there is a connection between the upsurge of such attacks and Israel's Gaza operation. [see, http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/129152]

Why the Jews?: The Reason for Antisemitism - by Dennis Prager, Joseph Telushkin - 2003 - Religion - 244 pages [Page 108] Among many Arabs the Holocaust has come to be regarded with nostalgia. On August 17, 1956, the French newspaper Le Monde quoted the government-controlled Damascus daily Al-Manar as observing, "One should not forget that, in contrast to Europe Hitler occupied an honored place in the Arab world.... [Journalists] are mistaken if they think that by calling Nasser Hitler, they are hurting us. On the contrary, his name makes us proud. Long live Hitler, the Nazi who struck at the heart of our enemies. Long live the Hitler [ie, Nasser] of the Arab world."

During the 1961 Eichmann trial in Jerusalem, Hannah Arendt commented on the astounding degree of anti-Jewish venom and praise for Hitler in the Arab press together with regret that he "did not finish the job". 40 years later the state-controlled Egyptian daily Al Akhbar (April 18, 2001) declared "Our thanks to the late Hitler...",

Hitler's Mideast helpers

Arabs were cheerleaders and enablers of the Final Solution.

Max Boot
December 20, 2006

MAHMOUD Ahmadinejad has an impeccable sense of timing. Just a week after the Iraq Study Group recommended a heart-to-heart with him, the president of Iran convened a conference in Tehran to examine whether the Holocaust really occurred. The answer from such "scholars" as David Duke, the notorious former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard, was a resounding no.

On one level, Ahmadinejad's embrace of Holocaust denial might seem surprising. A man who has repeatedly called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" surely has no problem with the murder of Jews. You might expect him to adopt the position espoused by the Egyptian newspaper Al Akhbar, which a few years ago ran an editorial praising Adolf Hitler ("of blessed memory") and complaining only that "his revenge on [the Jews] was not enough."

Or you might expect Ahmadinejad to take the far more common line in the Muslim world, which is to admit that, sure, some Jews died, but it was a lot fewer than 6 million and, anyway, what's the big deal? A lot of Gentiles died too. What makes these Yids so special? This is the position taken by Arab "moderates" such as Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, whose doctoral dissertation pooh-poohed the figure of 6 million dead Jews ("no one can verify this number") while expressing great concern that "the German people sacrificed 10 million" implying that the killers suffered more than their victims.

Ahmadinejad does not hide behind such equivocations. He flatly calls the Holocaust a myth. But he is hardly a model of consistency. At the same time that he denies the Holocaust, Iran's president claims that Israel was established by the Europeans as penance for ¦ the Holocaust. But why atone for something that didn't occur? Never mind. Ahmadinejad says that "if the Europeans are honest" in their claims about the Holocaust, "they should give some of their provinces in Europe ¦ to the Zionists and the Zionists can establish their state in Europe."

This is the crux of the matter. In Ahmadinejad's view, shared by countless others across the Middle East, whatever the Nazis did is no business of theirs, so why inflict the "Zionist entity" on their region? It is only a small step from this position to claiming that Israel's destruction is justified.

POINTLESS though it may be to argue with a madman, it is worth noting that Muslims were not as blameless in the genocide of the Jews as Ahmadinejad and his ilk would have it. Arabs were, on a small scale, cheerleaders and enablers of the Final Solution. The most famous example was Haj Amin Husseini, the grand mufti of Jerusalem (and uncle of Yasser Arafat), who took refuge in Berlin in World War II. A rabid Nazi, he personally lobbied Hitler to kill as many Jews as possible and even helped out by recruiting Bosnian Muslims to serve in the Waffen SS.

Robert Satloff, one of the world's smartest Arabists, reveals other links between the Arabs and the Holocaust in his groundbreaking new book, "Among the Righteous: Lost Stories from the Holocaust's Long Reach Into Arab Lands." He shows how the Nazis set up the machinery of death in North Africa. Although "only" 4,000 to 5,000 Jews died before the Allies liberated the area in 1943, many more were consigned to forced labor camps in hellish conditions.

"Arabs played a role at every level," Satloff wrote. "Some went door to door with the Germans, pointing out Jews for arrest. Others led Jewish workers on forced marches or served as overseers at labor camps."

The picture is not entirely one-sided because, although most Arabs were either apathetic or sympathetic to the Nazis, a small number helped their Jewish neighbors. Satloff uncovered lost tales of "righteous Gentiles," such as the wartime rulers of Morocco and Tunisia. And on the whole, he found that Arabs behaved no worse under German occupation than did Europeans.

But that isn't saying much because almost every country on the Continent was heavily complicit in the extermination of their Jewish populations. Satloff's research makes a mockery of Ahmadinejad's protestations that the Holocaust if it occurred! was someone else's responsibility. Individual Muslims were complicit in the horrors of the 1940s, even if, under foreign rule, they were not the primary culprits.

Even worse, while Europe has disowned its terrible history, the Nazis continue to be glorified in the Middle East. ("Mein Kampf" is a perennial bestseller in the region.) Nowhere else in the world is Holocaust denial so prevalent. Ahmadinejad deserves thanks for calling the world's attention to this pervasive sickness.

The same regret (of Hitler not finishing the "job"...) and heartfelt wish to see all Jews finally annihilated was expressed in April 2002 by a columnist in the second largest, state-controlled Egyptian daily Al- Akhbar

What kind of role does anti-Semitism play in the Middle East Conflict? At what point does opposition to Israel turn into anti-Semitism? These issues are discussed by Brian Klug, British philosopher and journalist, and Robert Wistrich, director of the International Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism in Jerusalem... The spiritual and physical connection of Jews with Zion has been continuous, preceding by centuries the emergence of Muslim conquerors from the Arabian deserts. Not only that, but over half the Israeli population is not "European" at all. It was uprooted from the Arab Middle East by exclusivist pan-Arabism, Islamic fanaticism, and the pressures of decolonization.

Testimony at the UN - Racism and Historical Truth: Jewish Refugees from Arab Lands ...
UN Watch Oral Statement
Agenda Item 9: Interactive Dialogue with
Special Rapporteur on Racism Doudou Diène
UN Human Rights Council, 7th Session, March 19, 2008
Delivered by Regina Bublil Waldman
Thank you, Mr. President.
We thank the Special Rapporteur for his work against racism, and address two areas of his report.
Dr. Diene, in Addendum 1 you mention Libya's treatment of ethnic minorities. In Addenda 3 and 4, you envision a multicultural society based on two principles: respect for historical truth and non-discrimination against minorities.
As a victim of Libyan discrimination, I agree: only with historical truth can we build a better future.
Today I wear my traditional ethnic dress to celebrate my heritage, but also to mourn its destruction.
One million Jews lived in the Middle East at the turn of the century. Today, less than five thousand remain.
Their plight has been ignored by the international community. Their story is my story.

In 1948, there were thirty-six thousand Jews living in Libya. Today, there are none. During the 1967 war between Israel and her Arab neighbors, mobs took to the streets and shouted, "Edbah el Yehud!" - "Slaughter the Jews!" They burned my father's warehouse and came to burn our home.

An honorable Muslim neighbor stopped them, and saved our lives.
The government ordered the expulsion of all Jews from Libya, where my family had lived for hundreds of years. They confiscated our homes and all our assets.
We were given this one-way travel document never allowed to return.
My family was put on a bus to the airport. The bus driver got out, and tried to burn the bus with us in it. We were rescued from death by two Christian friends.

I come here today bearing no hatred -- only these historical truths: Jews have been an indigenous people of the Middle East for over 2,500 years. On the basis of race and religion, Arab regimes subjected Jews to arbitrary arrest, confiscation of property and expulsions. This is fully documented in this report by Justice for Jews from Arab Countries.
The UNHCR has ruled that Jews fleeing from Arab countries were 'bona fide' refugees, victims of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Dr. Diene, your report envisions a future of tolerance and equality. Applying the principles you set forth, we trust you will examine the actions of Libya and other Middle Eastern countries that forced out their Jewish minorities.
Like in South Africa, only the acknowledgment of truth and history will lead to reconciliation.
Thank you, Mr. President.

George Will, "America must preempt next level of terrorism." In 1967, on the eve of the Six-Day War, Egypt's President Nasser proclaimed: "We are confronting Israel and the West as well." Netanyahu says: "The soldiers of militant Islam and Pan-Arabism do not hate the West because of Israel; they hate Israel because of the West." They hate "Zionism as an expression and representation of Western civilization." And they hate America because it is the purest expression of modernity--- individualism, pluralism, freedom, secularism.

CHANGING FACE OF THE KKK IN LOUISIANA! by Creole Folks (October 13, 2006)

The KKK has grown in diversity. Since Sept 11 and Bush declared selective war on the enemies of his oil buddies in Saudi Arabia. The out cast middle east Arabs and the KKK have been getting very, very cozy! The Arabs just cant stretch their Muslim minds to even consider that their fellow Arab brothers in Saudi Arabia have been in bed with the Bush family for generations so they do what any Arab normally does...they blame the Jews for the invasion of the Middle East! New Orleans own David Duke being the breakout American Jew hater, all of a sudden had an army of Arabs who shared in his hatred and they had a state to immigrate into and penetrate..Louisiana.

In Louisiana where the banking system will discriminate against natives of this state but will give Arab immigrants great business loans with the best rates, they have started to monopolize business in certain areas. This isn't a mistake! The KKK uses Arab businesses to recruit it's members. One can always tell the KKK when they have a politician in office. When former Gov. Foster of Louisianan went into office, the confederate flags went up on bumper stickers around Louisiana. Confederate flags were raised in the suburbs and David Duke t-shirts came back into style and the same thing would have happened if east-Indian "token" Bobby Jindal would have gotten into office.

A white female whose boyfriend happens to be African-Americans was approached by an elderly white lady to attend a Klan meeting in Jefferson Parish, where she worked for an Arab man from Lebanon. The older white lady didn't realize that her potential recruit was dating a black guy!

Antisemitism & racism, ARAB COUNTRIES 2003-4, Typical of the Arab rhetoric, Palestinian preacher Shaykh Ibrahim Madayris described the attack on Iraq in a Friday sermon at the `Ijlin Mosque in Gaza, broadcast live on Palestinian Authority TV on 21 March, as "a Crusader Zionist war." The Crusader, "Zionist America," he stated, had initiated an attack on "Iraq of Islam and Arabism," thus expanding the limited notion of the war to Arabs, Muslims and Islam at large.

All minorities living within the Arab world are under siege. Tunisian human rights activist Muhammad Bechri has traced this to the "twin fascisms" - his term - that dominate the Arab world, Islamism and pan-Arabism. The first promotes murderous intolerance of religious minorities. It helps explain why Christians are under siege across the Arab world and why Sudan enjoyed broad Arab support as it killed some two million non-Muslim blacks in the south of the country. Pan-Arabism translates into endorsement of murderous policies toward Muslim but non-Arab groups and accounts for Arab support for Saddam Hussein as he slaughtered 200,000 Kurds in northern Iraq, as well as backing for Sudanese policies toward the Muslim but black population of Darfur.

The Arab world is not about to make an exception for the Jews. This broad intolerance of minorities is further evidence of how unlikely it is the Arab world will accept the legitimacy of a Jewish state in its midst any time soon.

IT'S ABOUT BIGOTRY!

The war on terrorism is a war against bigotry... Bigotry is a terrible thing; no one appreciates being discriminated against. Imagine, however, someone hating you so much that theyrefuse to even recognize your very existence. Conversely, imagine being told if you did precisely as you were instructed, your right to exist would be recognized. Israel has faced this catch-22 situation since her rebirth in 1949. Millions of Arab bigots are propagating as true the diabolical lies quoted by Hitler from Mein Kampf and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Arab children are being taught that all wars are caused by the Jews, that the Jews invented AIDS, that Jews attacked America on September 11 than blamed it on the Arabs, and that America went to war against Iraq to appease the Jews. While this sounds ridiculous to us, it is accepted as truth in Arab lands. The truth is the "Baghdad Bobs" of the Middle East feed these myths and conspiracy theories to the masses daily. These fabrications are believed as the Gospel, and used to inflame Palestinian children to commit violent acts against the Jews. Children play death games, collect "terrorist" cards (complete with pictures of suicide bombers), and fantasize about killing Jews to reclaim al-Quds (Jerusalem.) And it doesn't stop with pretense! At least two-dozen children under the age of 18 have perished as suicide bombers; children as young as 11 have been enlisted as "mules" to smuggle bomb-making supplies into Israel. The two young Palestinians who carried out the most recent attack in Ashdod were 17-years-old.

In 1997, I wrote an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal entitled, "Where's theOutrage?" The article outlined the fact that the world continued to tolerate Arafat's speeches calling for one million martyrs to liberate Jerusalem. Yet today, Arafat's Palestinian Authority uses the television airwaves to encourage children of all ages to become "Shahada" -- suicide martyrs. Money keeps Arafat in power! Since 1994, he has kept a tight grip on $5.5 billion dollars of international aid that has flowed into Palestinian coffers. He dispenses his wealth to would-be martyrs, as well as to purchase 50-ton shipments of weapons from Iran. Arafat's critics are either paid off, or murdered. According to Israeli intelligence,Arafat's personal holdings are reported at $1.3 billion. This includes a 23 percent stake in a casino in Jericho (estimated worth - $28.5 million), 20 percent of a Tunisian telecom

[Page 2]

company (estimated at $50 million), and a $55 million share of a firm that controls most of the cement imported into the territories. Every six months, President Bush has an opportunity to allow the Anti-terrorism Act of 1987 to become law. The time has come for Mr. Bush to refuse to sign another waiver on this resolution, and allow it to be enacted.

This document places the PLO firmly where it belongs; on the terrorist list. This Act would hold Arafat and his entire terrorist cartel accountable, and stop PLO terrorists from entering the U.S. under diplomatic immunity. It is time for President Bush to freeze Arafat's $1.3 billion in PLO funds, and paycompensation to the survivors of Americans killed by Arafat. As far back as February 12, 1986, a letter was sent from 47 Senators to the U. S. Justice Department demanding that Arafat be indicted for the murder in Khartoum, Sudan, of Ambassador Cleo Noel, and charge d'affaires, C. Curtis Moore. To date, no action has been taken; but there is no statute of limitations on murder. It must also be noted that the U.S. State Department has an audiotape of Arafat's order to have the American diplomats killed... it is time to send Arafat to The Hague to stand trial alongside Milosovic. In order to win the war on terrorism, America must fight a war on bigotry. The same bigotry that kills Jews also kills Christians.

We discovered that on 9/11. For all the Arab bigots who call themselves "patriotic Americans", and who don't like the signing of this document, the President needs to refuse to recognize their right to exist as an American, and send them back to their countries of origin.

Dr. Kenneth Levin... I believe that many people in the Arab world remain intoxicated with the messages constantly given them by leaders both secular and religious; a message not unlike that proffered to Germans between the world wars: That they are heirs to a superior nation which has been robbed of its proper superior status and must militantly reclaim it from those who have stolen the Arabs' rightful place in the world. It is the message disseminated by what one liberal Arab writer called the "twin fascisms of Islamism and pan-Arabism." For democracy to take root will require an end to the Arab romance with this fascist world view.

Yet sixty years ago, there were more than a million Jews in Arab lands. Their exodus says it all. Israel integrated them, providing a haven, pride, dignity and freedom as it did for the Jewish survivors of the Holocaust. Palestinian refugees, on the other hand, were left to rot in UN refugee camps by their Arab brethren, fed with revanchist delusions about their inalienable "right of return" to Israel. If the Middle East tragedy is to be resolved, it is these camps ' the seedbed of terrorism and an entire culture of hatred ' which have to be dismantled and not the thriving Jewish state.

Embracing Holocaust Deniers
In the wake of the intifada, crude Holocaust denial re-emerged as a means of delegitimizing Israel and Zionism, along with motifs that had typified the discourse of the early years of the Arab-Israeli conflict, such as regret that Hitler had not finished the job. Egyptian columnist Ahmad Rajab thanked Hitler for taking revenge on the Israelis "in advance on behalf of the Palestinians," but noted that it was not complete.61 The PA semi-official paper al-Hayat al-Jadida published an article on 13 April by Khayri Mansur, entitled "Marketing Ashes," which elaborates various themes common to Holocaust deniers: alleged political and economic exploitation by Zionist propaganda, and doubting the number of Jews exterminated as well as well as the existence of the gas chambers.62 The Hizballah website disseminated "The Holocaust Lie," from Richard Harwood's book Did Six Million Really Die?, and referred the browser to the Leuchter Report.63 Norman Finkelstein's book The Holocaust Industry drew considerable attention in the Arab media. It was translated into Arabic, reviewed and discussed while Finkelstein himself was a welcome interviewee.64 Although it does not deny the Holocaust, the book was perceived as an anti-Jewish/anti-Zionist tract, confirming Arab claims of exploitation of the Holocaust for Zionist political ends. At the Durban conference, Arab and Muslim representatives attempted, publicly, for the first time, to trivialize the Holocaust by denying its uniqueness and turning it into one of many holocausts.
The centrality of Holocaust denial in the Arab discourse was manifested in two events ' an aborted conference of Western revisionists in Beirut, and an Arab forum on historical revisionism, which took place in May in Amman. The conference "Revisionism and Zionism," co-sponsored by the California-based Institute of Historical Review (IHR), the leading Holocaust denial group in the world...

EU threatens pullout from racism conference 
 
March 16 2009 at 08:07PM
 
Brussels - The European Union on Monday threatened to pull out of an upcoming United Nations conference on racism unless a controversial draft declaration, deemed anti-Semitic, is changed.
 
"The main voices were very sceptical about the directions of the papers prepared," said Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg, whose country holds the rotating EU presidency.
 
The EU is seeking to remove at least five paragraphs from the draft declaration relating to the situation in the Palestinian territories, such as an assertion that "in order to consolidate the Israeli occupation, (Palestinians) have been subjected to unlawful collective punishment, torture."
 
Schwarzenberg, speaking to reporters after presiding over a meeting of EU foreign ministers, said the EU would "probably" send its own suggestions for the draft.
 
Italy has already pulled out of the conference
"If the conference will be in line with that then we will stay, otherwise there is a strong call to withdraw," he said.
 
Italy has already pulled out of the April 20-24 conference in Geneva, "complaining of unacceptable, aggressive and anti-Semitic phrases," while Britain has said it will not attend unless there is a "change in direction" to the draft declaration.
 
Israel, Canada and the United States have also vowed to boycott this year's gathering, dubbed "Durban II".
 
The inaugural racism conference, held Durban in September 2001, saw a walkout by Israeli and US delegates in protest against a bid by Arab nations to adopt a resolution equating Zionism with racism.
 
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is among those calling for a unified EU withdrawal from the talks unless the preparatory papers are substantially modified.
 
The documents "suggest that this is not simply dealing with racism, but that the conference could be diverted by the taking of one-sided positions on the Middle East conflict, or to condemn some European and American positions regarding the Arab-Muslim world," he said after the Brussels meeting.
 
"I would plead for us to withdraw from this conference if in the coming hours and days we don't get a substantial modification of these documents," he said. - Sapa-AFP

Racist "Anti-Racism" Campaign is the Hudson Institute’s indefatigable Anne Bayefsky. She has posted the "Draft Outcome Document" for Durban II on the website www.EYEontheUN.org.... the threat posed by Durban II goes beyond Israel -- and indeed beyond anything in Durban I. As noted earlier Durban I ended just before 9/11 -- in its aftermath Islamic organizations and countries have been nurturing an odd combination of sentiments: a sense of grievance and victimhood along with feelings of empowerment. The end result is that the Moslem countries setting the agenda for Durban II seek to outlaw a new form of "racism," namely "Islamophobia."
...the Draft Document seeks to undercut counterterrorism and national security efforts with the accusation that they "hamper…progress in the collective struggle against racism." Any suggestion that Islam or Muslims have anything to do with terrorism is attacked as xenophobia leading to "worsening of the situation of Muslim minorities around the world."

Canada, Israel, Italy and Sweden have also announced they are boycotting the conference aimed at creating a global blueprint for tackling discrimination. Britain says it will attend.
Meanwhile, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, whose past comments on the Holocaust and Israel are likely to overshadow his contributions to the debate, has reportedly confirmed his attendence.
U.S. State Department officials say redrafts of the offending document, which will reaffirm anti-discrimination commitments agreed at a 2001 meeting in Durban, South Africa, have failed to resolve outstanding issues.
America objected to the 2001 agreement -- joining Israel in walking out of the Durban meeting -- and says the current document "prejudges key issues that can only be resolved in negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians."
Australia's Foreign Minister Stephen Smith echoed the concerns on Sunday, saying that Israel was being unfairly targeted..
"Regrettably, we cannot be confident that the Review Conference will not again be used as a platform to air offensive views, including anti-Semitic views," he said.
The United States says that despite its boycott, it "will continue to work assiduously" with all nations "to combat bigotry and end discrimination."

Obama Skips Controversial U.N. Durban Conference by Thomas P. Kilgannon 04/20/2009 ... in two words -- bureaucratic terrorism. The conference is dominated by the 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and is used largely as a forum to promote hatred of Israel. The gathering in Geneva is a follow-on to the World Conference Against Racism held in Durban, South Africa in 2001 -- a conference which found the American and Israeli delegates walking out in protest. It was described by the late Tom Lantos, the only Holocaust survivor to serve in Congress, as "the most sickening and unabashed display of hate for Jews I had seen since the Nazi period."

Hate Speech At San Francisco State University

By Richard L. Cravatts February 24, 2009

...The virulence of anti-Israelism and antisemitism at The University of California, Irvine campus, for instance, has been so flagrant and endemic in recent years that it actually prompted an investigation by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights, the findings of which were issued in a damning 2007 report. But San Francisco State University is not far behind in the ignoble way it has enabled its Muslim students' organizations to create a veritable reign of terror on campus against Jewish and pro-Israel students, while simultaneously attempting to silence voices of opposition, a situation made evident this January when SFSU's College Republicans were once again pushed into the limelight for their outspoken challenges to the school's ubiquitous Palestinianism.

Playing off the recent indignity suffered by former president Bush when an insolent reporter hurled a shoe at the President's head during a press conference, the College Republicans had set up a booth to let students who so wished to sign an anti-Hamas, anti-terror petition and throw a shoe at a Hamas flag. Deeply "offended" by the Republicans for daring to condemn terrorists, rather than the Israeli state in defending its civilians from genocidal attack, members of SFSU's General Union of Palestinian Students (GUPS) and socialist club overturned the table, seized the Hamas flag, and were physically aggressive enough in their assault of the Republican students to result in two of their members, Muhammad Abdullah and Jeremy Stern, being put under arrest.

The outcome of this event, one would think, would be fairly straightforward, since the pro-Hamas protestors clearly violated SFSU's own rules for student behavior, which clearly prohibit "conduct that threatens or endangers the health or safety of any person within or related to the university community, including physical abuse, threats, intimidation, [or] harassment," all of which the Republican group experienced.

But in the morally-inverted world of academia, the Republican group, for the third time, find themselves the target of punishment and censure, not their attackers, and the "offended parties -- the GUPS and the socialist club -- have made some breathtakingly audacious demands to the SFSU administration: the College Republicans must be punished or sanctioned for throwing shoes at the Hamas flag; pending charges should be dropped against the two protestors who assaulted the College Republicans and seized the Hamas flag; and, most ominously for defenders of free expression on campus, a forum should be created to "educate" students about what forms of speech the "offended" students deem acceptable or unacceptable, including what the Left regularly tries to proscribe as "hate speech."

The idea that one group of college students believe they can and should decide what acceptable speech is at any given moment is a particularly chilling concept, particularly when those same students have defined their political beliefs with an unwavering support for the jihadist aggression of groups that threaten not only Israel, but the West, as well.

Two years ago, the College Republicans held a similar anti-terrorism rally at which SFSU students were invited to stomp on the flags of Hamas and Hezbollah, and with similar punitive results: the complaining students accused the Republican group members of "acts of incivility" and "intimidation," suggesting that they created a "hostile environment" by publicly walking over the terrorist flags, which, unbeknownst to the Republican students, happen bear the name of Allah in Arabic script.

While college demonstrators here and abroad regularly burn, deface, and desecrate the flags of Israel and the United States, something that the courts have repeatedly upheld as Constitutionally-protected speech, only on a campus controlled by Left-leaning faculty and radicalized students could the protest against the flags of genocidal terrorist thugs be considered, as it was here, an attempt to "incite violence," "hateful religious intolerance" and an act by those who "pre-meditated the stomping of the flags knowing it would offend some people and possibly incite violence." Thanks to the intervention of The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), a group that defends campus free speech, the Republican club was exonerated, but only after they had been dragged through proceedings by University officials who had to be reminded by FIRE that "speech does not constitute incitement if a speaker's words result in violence because people despise what the speaker said and wish to silence him or her."

Were only the College Republicans acting out in a provocative way on an otherwise peaceful SFSU campus, they might well be rebuked for being crude and demonstrating impolite and impolitic behavior. But not only has the campus gained notoriety for the outrageousness of some of its morally-defective protests, but the same "offended" parties who sought punishments for the College Republicans, the General Union of Palestinian Students, have continually been at the center of a succession of riots, protests, and anti-Israel, anti-American hate-fests and counter-protests at which radical speakers regularly, and with unbridled invective, denounce and demonize Jews, Zionists, Israel, Republicans, and America.

Most notorious, for example, was the Muslim student-sponsored, pro-Palestinian April 2002 demonstration that included odious flyers and posters depicting a dead Palestinian baby on a soup-can label imprinted with the words "Palestinian Children Meat, slaughtered according to Jewish rites under American license," echoing the centuries-old blood libel of European antisemitism that accused Jews of murdering Gentile children and using their blood to bake matzos -- a slander that has, not surprisingly, currently gained credence in the Arab world. Even if the perpetrators of this cruel protest consider this type of expression merely "academic free speech" and legitimate debate about Zionism, and also disingenuously claim that that there is no underlying Jew-hatred here, only debate about Israeli policies, and even if they are to be believed, might not such flyers possibly offend Jewish students on campus? Could accusing an ethnic group of infanticide possibly be construed as "intimidation" or fostering "incivility" on campus?

Not content to mount their own vile protests against Zionism, Jews, and Israel, the pro-Palestinian student groups took it upon themselves the following month to disrupt a vigil for Holocaust Remembrance Day where some 30 Jewish students who were reciting the Mourners' Kaddish -- the Jewish prayer for the dead -- were shouted down by protesters who countered with grisly prayers in memory of Palestinian suicide bombers. The pro-Palestinian counter-demonstrators, armed with whistles and bull horns, physically assaulted the Jewish students, spat on them, and screamed such charming epithets as "Too bad Hitler didn't finish the job," "Get out or we will kill you," "F**k the Jews," "Die racist pigs," and "Go back to Russia, Jews." The violence escalated to the extent that San Francisco police officers finally had to usher the Jewish students to safety off campus. "This is not civic discourse, this is not free speech," lamented Laurie Zoloth, SFSU's Director of the Program in Jewish Studies at the time of the incident, "this is the Weimar Republic with brown shirts it cannot control."

Is this merely academic debate about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, or is something more insidious finding expression in the minds of these hate-filled students blinded by their obsession with the plight of the Left's favorite third-world victims, the Palestinians? Claims by pusillanimous college administrators that hate-filled protests against Jews and Israel are merely conversations about politics are more than disingenuous; while universities see no difficulty is making moral judgments about "hate speech" when it is aimed at groups who have achieved status as victims in a world bereft of social justice -- blacks, gays, Palestinians, illegal aliens, among them -- that same moral recognition is oddly absent when vitriolic charges of racism, imperialism, apartheid, ethnic cleansing, occupation, and genocide are carelessly lodged at Israel and its supporters in the U.S. and the West. Victim status also insulates members of those groups from criticism; only the acts and behavior of the "other," the oppressors, are subject to critique, a convenient way for SFSU's jihad-supporting student groups to justify their ideological onslaught against the Zionism and Jews.

How has this corruption of what should be legitimate academic debate come about? Irwin Cotler, a Canadian MP and former minister of justice and attorney-general, believes that this pernicious ideology has manifested itself so "that Israel is delegitimized, if not demonized, by the ascription to it of the two most scurrilous indictments of 20th-century racism -- Nazism and apartheid -- the embodiment of all evil. These very labels of Zionism and Israel as ˜racist, apartheid and Nazi' supply the criminal indictment. No further debate is required."

Given this false sense of moral superiority by the libelous framing of Israel as the singularly most evil nation on earth, its campus enemies at SFSU and elsewhere feel free to speak against it in the most destructive and hurtful way possible. At the same time, pro-Israel, anti-terrorism voices are marginalized, disregarded, shouted down, or, as in the case of the College Republicans most recently, denounced as hate speech, unworthy of being part of an ongoing, vigorous debate, and deserving only of being punished and silenced by those who want only one side of the debate to be heard in what should be a vigorous, thoughtful debate in the ˜marketplace of ideas.'

Jewish students warned of growing threat of violence
Posted: February 26, 2009, 4:47 PM by Chris Boutet
By Craig Offman, National Post
The Canadian Federation of Jewish Students warned Thursday about the growth of violence and threats against Jews who overtly support Israel or who are wearing clothing that identifies them as Jews.
"Such dangerous including swarming, confinement, verbal and physical abuse poses threats not only to Jewish students but also to the fabric of civil discourse that Canadians proudly cherish," said CFJS chair of Israel Affairs, Noah Kochman, at a Toronto press conference...
On February 11, York University students blocked the entrance to the office of Hillel, a Jewish campus group, shouting anti-Israel and allegedly anti-Semitic statements. Campus and city police had to escort the students through the swarm. The Toronto Police Service are investigating a potential hate crime.
The RCMP is investigating an incident at the University of British Columbia, in which a pro-Palestinian student allegedly assaulted two Jewish students after pro-Hamas and PLO posters on a dorm-room door were pulled down.
During the conference, Mr. Kochman, a McGill student, claimed he has seen a spike in complaints from Jewish students across the country in recent weeks. He also alluded to several incidents--including the dissemination of posters that featured anti-Semitic caricaturesbut declined to identify where the events took place or who was involved.

Mideast Narratives Have Changed Over Time
News Analysis
By David Bedein & Shmuel Sokol, For The Bulletin
Published: Tuesday, February 17, 2009
Jerusalem During the course of the 20th century, and especially in the years since the 1967 Six Day War, there has been a dramatic change in the academic and popular historiography of the Middle East.

The traditional narratives have been supplanted by new and fundamentally different and revisionist ways of looking at the region and its conflicts.
A case in point: In 1977, PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein told the Dutch newspaper Trouw that "The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity."

In reality, today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.

In actuality, during the period of time in which Judea/Palestine was under the yoke of Ottoman imperialism, the dominant national identification of the "Palestinian Arabs," a group of scattered peasants (fellahin in Arabic), was that of members of the Arab people, and more specifically as residents of greater Syria.

Palestinian nationalism as such did not exist. There has never been an independent Palestinian state, nor has Jerusalem ever been the capital of an independent Arab polity.

These facts, while undeniably true, do not in any way form the basis for modern thought and diplomatic practice in regards to Israel and its long-running conflict with its Arab neighbors.

Though Arab governments in a spirit of Pan-Arabism founded the PLO, the acknowledged historical chronology relegates such inconvenient facts to the dustbin.

Instead, fiction assumes the realm of fact while charges of racism are leveled against anyone who denies the veracity of "Palestinian claims."

Instead of the Palestinians being perceived as a group of immigrants from various Arab states that have only recently coalesced into a semi-unified community, they are acknowledged as a group deserving of equal rights to the historical Jewish homeland.

It is to combat these myths that Professor Steven Carol has published his new book, Middle East Rules of Thumb (iUniverse 2008). Professor Carol examines the underlying assumptions behind popular support for the "Palestinian" cause, and the policy ramifications of such ideas.

A good example of this would be his treatment of the Arab-Israeli conflict as the sole source of Middle East instability. It has been contended, by both the Arabs and the international community, that the underlying problem in the region is Israeli intransigence and that a negotiated peace with the "Palestinians" would lead to a better climate for economic growth and the spread of democratic values.

However, in the spirit of Josef Joffe (see "A World Without Israel," Foreign Policy, 2005 http://tinyurl.com/atltvk), Dr. Carol has compiled a list, chart, six pages in length, that lists the various religious, national and ethnic conflicts in the Arab/Muslim world that predate Israeli independence in their root causes, or, having begun since the inception of the Zionist enterprise, still have no connection to the settlement of Jews in their ancestral homeland. Dr. Carol does the general public a great service in providing historical, religious and political context to what one sees every day in the newspapers.

The book is written in a light and breezy style, making it easy to read. This is quite an accomplishment, given the subject matter.

As a companion to such books as Myths and Facts or From Time Immemorial, rather than a self-contained work in and of itself, Middle East Rules of Thumb proves itself to be a both a highly entertaining read and a good source of information.

Having taught at such schools as Adelphi University and Long Island University, written previous scholarly and popular works and consulted for radio, Dr. Carol certainly knows his subject material and is familiar with writing for a popular audience. Dr. Carol supplements the main body of his work with generous and well-written appendixes that are both entertaining and informative.

Moroccan Islamist Daily: "Amazighs of Morocco, Where Do You Stand on Palestine?" On January 15, the Moroccan pro-Hamas Islamist daily Al-Tajdid published a column by Hassan Bouikhf titled "Amazighs of Morocco, Where Do You Stand on Palestine?" The article took to task Berber activist groups that did not show support for the Palestinians in Gaza:

February 26, 2009 No. 2262

Columnist Ahmed 'Asid: We Don't March Because Islamists and Pan-Arabists Have Monopolized the Public Sphere

Columnist Ahmed 'Asid responded to Al-Tajdid's accusations in the Moroccan Bayan Al-Yawm daily on January 23, 2009: "¦We know the Moroccan people's solidarity with the Palestinian people, and we [the Amazighs] join in this. It is in the hearts of people of all ages and in all sectors [of society]. It is a true and spontaneous solidarity¦ But there is nowhere for this to be expressed apart from the private sphere. As for the public sphere, it is monopolized by others who have other aims in expressing solidarity¦ The author's second error is that he has limited solidarity with Palestine to participation in marches organized by the political current to which he himself belongs [i.e. the Islamists], in cooperation with the pan-Arab current - whether in its left-wing, nationalist salafi, or right-wing liberal forms. Everyone knows that these marches are held in the framework of these two political ideologies [Islamism and pan-Arabism], both of which we reject completely and irrevocably. These marches are organized in the name of the Moroccan people, but in truth they only represent their organizers, and promote a 'solidarity' of a different sort, and a struggle of a different sort - [that of] agitators for jihadi Islam and preachers of pan-Arabism, whose feelings are roused only when it is Arabs who are wronged¦

"Thus, we are for Palestinian rights and against the instrumental political use to which they are put; we are for the Palestinian people but against Hamas, [Islamic] Jihad, and all the peddlers of Palestinian blood¦ We are against the savagery of brutal revenge demonstrated by Palestinian political Islam in the Gaza coup, and against all the maneuvers aiming to derail political talks through missiles - which kill no one apart from the Palestinian dream of an independent state. We believe that the Palestinian cause is a human one that is larger than the Arabs and the Muslims, and that those who have Arabized it and Islamized it have cost it the world's forceful solidarity and have turned it into a wearisome play of which all have tired¦" [4]

Berber Activist Moha Moukhlis: "The 'Arab Street' Is Jubilant When an Indoctrinated Palestinian Child Blows Himself up in Tel Aviv" - And Ignores Crimes in Darfur and Kurdistan

An article by the Moroccan Berber journalist Moha Moukhlis posted on the amazighworld.org website expressed in starker terms what some Berbers feel is the gulf between themselves and the Arab world: "¦I want first to emphasize that I am writing as an Amazigh deprived of my most basic and legitimate rights: to be myself in the land of my ancestors and to express myself freely without constraint.

"I am not part of the flock that bleats as it is being led to the slaughterhouse. I am allergic to totalitarian ideologies and impassioned rhetoric. I hate confusions and ambiguities: I am an Amazigh, a free man.

"I can thus affirm that the tragedy of the Gaza Palestinians serves as fuel for Hamas, a gang of fundamentalist criminals who are perpetrating self-genocide, with the assistance of genocidal Arab regimes. [They are] mentally disturbed people who hate life and use the blood of their fellow Muslims to perpetuate their macabre aura.

"What can homemade and primitive rockets do against the fifth [largest] army in the world? '[They can bring us] Paradise,' say the Islamists and their dark networks, and they have the Quranic verses and hadith to prove it! [These are] criminal Islamists who conceive of their own people as cannon fodder destined to build up their bogus 'glory'¦

"Death is their ideal, their culture, and the pillar of their values. The society that it [Hamas] dominates is indoctrinated to murder, to kill in jubilation and in horror. They are vampires who suck the blood of their citizens¦ It matters little to them if hundreds of children die or are torn to shreds. They think that they will go straight to Paradise. How morbid!

"And the so-called 'Arab street[?]' A brainless herd that has been indoctrinated and riled up and that has lost all sense of gravity and direction. They express their hatred for the Jews, whom they hope to exterminate from the face of the Earth¦ Yet this 'Arab street', which sees itself as the voice of the [world's] peoples, never dared to lift a finger against the crimes committed by the Hamas fundamentalists, or by the Arabo-Islamist regimes against non-Arab populations in Darfur, Kurdistan, Egypt, Syria, Libya, Algeria, or Niger. No! [And] the rights of the Amazigh people are supposed to be sacrificed on the altar of [this] Arab fundamentalism ¦

"It is striking that the denunciation of the massacres in Gaza by the 'Arab street' and the Arab 'intellectuals' is not meant to defend the Palestinians' right to live in peace, but to denounce the identity of the aggressor: the Jew. Who cares about the massacre perpetrated by the Hamas gangs against their brothers in Fatah? This macabre [attitude] is taken to extremes: The 'Arab street' is jubilant when an indoctrinated Palestinian child blows himself up in Tel Aviv."

"The Amazigh People¦ Will Never Give in to the Siren [Songs] of the Peddlers of Death"

Moukhlis continues: "They criticize the Amazigh movement for its 'silence' on Gaza! This is because its position [on Gaza] is determinant [of its status]: either it goes along with the herd, or else it is condemned and accused of high treason against the fundamentalist Arab nation. To rehabilitate itself, it is expected to send its children to blow themselves up in Tel Aviv, to teach them to hate Jews, and to express the wish, after every prayer, that they [the Jews] will disappear from the Earth!

"No! The Amazigh people love life and work to perpetuate it. They will never give in to the siren [songs] of the peddlers of death and human flesh. They will always know to defend just causes without hatred and without vengefulness. While for the 'Arab street' and the Arab fundamentalist groups the death of dozens of children and women means nothing - since their death is a means of entering Paradise - for the Amazighs the life of every human being is sacred and must be defended by legal means and with respect for the other.

"In order to develop, the Arab fundamentalists and [pan-]Arabists need to start by changing. This change, which will allow them to build a future for coming generations, needs to be based on the total and definitive rejection of the culture of death."

Kabyle Writer: "Selective Humanism and Compassion Are the Expression of an Unspoken Racism"

The same attitudes could be observed in Algeria as well as Morocco. In an article on the Kabyle (Algerian Berber) website kabyle.com, Azouaou Azeggagh wrote: "The Palestinians, taken hostage in the Gaza Strip, suffer martyrdom while serving as a human shield in a war imposed on them by Hamas' Islamist militias and their allies in Damascus and Tehran. The media are at the source of the clamors of indignation heard from the four corners of the world when faced with the horrors of a war broadcast live¦ They would do better to turn against the persecutors of the Palestinians' liberty -namely, the Hamas fundamentalists, disciples of Khomeini and bin Laden¦

"The method remains simple and terribly effective. First, you must make Israel commit an error, by launching rockets from crowded neighborhoods, schools, or hospitals, so that the return fire will inevitably hit the largest number of civilians possible - preferably women and children. Then, you show the TV [crews] the shredded bodies, and there you go. The condemnations pour in and the world looks at Israel as the barbarian of the 21st century, when it did nothing but defend its right to live - a right openly and unambiguously contested by Islamists of all stripes.

"Nonetheless, Western opinion, which often stops at the emotional level, wants neither to see nor to understand the reasons for the Israeli military reaction. [According to them], all Israel had to do was not fall into the trap of its enemies. What Western opinion forgets is that with such a reaction, it encourages in Gaza what it condemns at home: Islamist terrorism¦

"Other tragedies - in Darfur, Kivu, Gambia, the Ivory Coast, Kabylia, Somaliland, Sri Lanka, Kurdistan, Afghanistan, and the Touareg lands ([in] Niger, Mali, Lybia, and Algeria) - are largely minimalized, and do not give rise to mass movements [of sympathizers]. Selective humanism and compassion are the expression of an unspoken racism. The victims of political and military violence are equal in death, whatever their identity."

"The Majority of Kabyles Cannot Show Solidarity with Hamas - When It Is Arab Islamism that Remains the Principle Menace to the Survival of the Amazigh Peoples"

Another author, D. Messaoudi, wrote on the same website: "The violence of the fighting, the mistakes [on the battlefield], and the proportion of civilians killed by the IDF in Operation Cast Lead have traveled the world round. Both in Europe and in the so-called Arab countries, the tragedies of the Kabyles, the Kurds, and the Darfurians have not excited the same compassion. In this context, it should be added that no one in Algeria or in [other] Berber countries cared when, for eight years, the Islamic jihadi militias of Hamas and Hizbullah tore Israel to pieces with Qassam rockets and Grad missiles.

"The majority of Kabyles cannot show solidarity with Hamas when it is Arab Islamism that remains the principle menace to the survival of the Amazigh peoples¦

"To be sure, the slaughter being carried out by the Israeli army against the Arab Palestinian residents of Gaza is condemnable. Thus it is normal that the Arabs of other country would express solidarity with their blood brothers, try to bring in non-Arab Muslims on a basis of religious solidarity, and try to swell their ranks with people of different ethnicities and faiths on the basis of human solidarity.

"But a question has been bothering me for quite a long time and holds me back from expressing solidarity with the Palestinian cause, though I am Muslim and a human rights activist: Have the Arab peoples and regimes, whether Muslim or Christian, ever demonstrated their support for oppressed non-Arabs, whether around the world or in their own countries? The answer is 'no'¦"

Messaoudi then reviews the cases of the Kurds and Darfur before going on to address that of his own people in Kabylia: "¦ In the Black Spring (2001-2004), Kabylia was invaded by government troops and 126 Kabyle civilians were murdered, and hundreds of others were crippled for life. Yet the Kabyle tragedies have never aroused the compassion of Arab figures, regimes, or simple Arab citizens, either nationally [in Algeria] or in the so-called Arab world¦

"In sum, the Arabs believe that only their causes are noble and only their populations are to be classed as human - this being the justification for [why] one [should] support them and surround them with love and compassion. It is unfortunate that many people have let themselves be carried away by this wave of hypocritical inter-Arab solidarity."

Believe it... Hamas are using the population of Gaza as human shields/bomb fodder... What people in the west find almost impossible to believe is that Hamas exult in and glorify the death of Palestinians as the highest form of spiritual attainment. The more Palestinians die, the greater they believe their achievement to be. That is why this man gloats that ˜death has become an industry'...What is also being almost totally obscured by the western media jihad against Israel is the murderous onslaught by Hamas against the Palestinians themselves. Also obscured by the media jihad is the fact that Hamas are not parochial Palestinian terrorists but Islamists bent on global domination... video they say in terms that the wish to annihilate not just Israel but Europe and America and conquer the entire world for Islam... Israel's triumph in this battle with jihadi Islam and racist pan-Arabism will also benefit precisely those nations as well. ...

Under-fire UAE likely to give Israel's Andy Ram a visa
Israeli doubles specialist Andy Ram is likely to be granted a visa by the United Arab Emirates to play in the Dubai Championships next week, which could prevent a major crisis for tennis...
"To discriminate as the UAE did against one player in this way smacks of bigotry and racism," the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organisations said in a statement. "This must be declared unacceptable by the WTA and all international sporting associations. As we learned in the past, failure to condemn such actions and take corrective measures, proves destructive to international sporting competition."

DiCaprio To Convert to Judaism To Marry Bar: Arab World Says To Hell With Him
[23 Feb. 2009]
Israeli journalist, Guy Bechor, writes on the Israeli website gplanet (Hebrew language) that the Arab world is going crazy over reports that Leonardo DiCaprio is converting to Judaism in order to marry Sports Illustrated cover girl, Bar Rafieli, an Israeli.
The report appeared on Al-Arabiya website and, according to Bechor, is quite vicious. Apparently, Leo is a hero in the Arab world (everyone loved Titanic) but that the combination of his relationship with the Jewish beauty, and his conversion, should it happen) instantly transforms him to dirt in their eyes.
I thought the Arab world had changed? I thought that their objection is only to the occupation not to Israel itself, let alone the Jews.
But now Leo is being attacked the same way Elizabeth Taylor was when she became a Jew 45 years ago and was boycotted by the Arab world. I think she still is.
Anyway, if you know Arabic, read the 144 nasty contacts about Leo (and Bar) in Al Arabiya. It appears that they may hate us. They really do!
But who can hate Leo and Bar?

Have the "Arab Palestinian" Knesset members turned racist?
By Ariel Natan Pasko March 26, 2006
Has the former Arafat mouthpiece and longtime "Palestinian" voice in the Israeli Knesset, Dr. Ahmed Tibi, (Ta'al party), turned away from integration?...
One thing we know, even before Hamas was elected to rule the Palestinian Authority, is that the Arabs want "Palestine" to be a Judenrein (Jew-free) Arab-only state.
And Ahmed Tibi is not alone. Not long ago, Israeli Arab leaders met with a group of forty foreign diplomats. They insisted that twenty percent of all foreign aid to Israel, be earmarked for the "Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel." They want 20% of international donor money to be for Arabs only, while other the 80% of aid to Israel, should be for both communities as it has been till now. So who are the real racists?
...No, it's not the vicious mass murder of Jews in malls, cafes, and on buses by Arab terrorists that causes Jews to feel uncomfortable around Arabs. Not the apartheid-style (or is that Nazi-style?) demand for a Judenrein Gaza, a Judenrein Palestine, even by so-called moderates like Mahmoud Abbas. Not the consistent polls for the last five years, showing 50-80% "Palestinian" support for suicide bombings, or the fact that Hamas garnered 58% of the vote in the recent elections in the PA. Not the recent announcements by Hamas leaders of their intention to continue what they euphemistically call the "resistance," better called genocidal attacks against Jews in Israel. Not the public support Israeli Arabs, both leaders and led, both educated and not, have voiced for Hamas' victory in the PA. Not the growing active participation of Israeli Arabs in terrorism against Israeli Jews. Not their own admission of disloyalty toward the State of Israel. Not their own call for apartheid-style segregation, and Arab supremist rights in Israel itself. No, it's not any of the above reasons why many Jews have negative feelings toward Arabs in Israel.
No, it's all the Jews' own fault, according to Tibi, el-Sana, Barakeh, and others. How intellectually "honest" of them. It sounds to me like classic racism and anti-Semitism. Can you believe Israel is letting these anti-Semitic racists run..?

No Arab land is occupied by Israel Thursday, 8th January, 2009
By Ben Okiror

THE current fighting in the Gaza Strip needs clarification for people to understand its genesis. I accept that the situation is complex, and that might explain why even the US President-elect, Barack Obama has so far opted to remain silent since the war broke out.

However, I would like to bring out what seems to have been ignored and yet it is important for a balanced analysis of the conflict.

Whereas on the surface it is the terrorist group, Hamas, fighting the only Jewish nation, Israel, it is in fact a continuation of the war that Arabs have waged against the Jews since Israel was created in 1948.

The geographic area called "Palestine" was governed by the British after it took it from the Turks at the end of the First World War.

The League of Nations (precursor to the United Nations), according to the Balfour Declaration of 1917, mandated Britain to create a Jewish state in all of "Palestine" due to historical right.

Tragically, Britain did not fulfill its mandate and instead created a formerly nonexistent Arab-Palestinian state called "Transjordan" (now Jordan) on 77% of the Jewish soil in 1922.

Even when the United Nations decided on the Partition Plan on November, 29 1947, Britain voted against it and all the Arab states boycotted the vote.

Never mind that the Plan that gave the Jews only 23% of its original land was not legally binding since the UN Security Council did not ratify it.

In 1948 Britain abandoned Palestine without fulfilling its primary responsibility. Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948 but was attacked by six Arab states the next day.

Ironically, Jordan was led, armed and trained by Britain. It invaded occupied and annexed Samaria and Judea (now called the "West Bank") as well as East Jerusalem.

On the other hand, Egypt invaded and occupied Gaza. These are the so-called "occupied territories" after Israel recaptured them in 1967.

Incidentally, for 19 years when Egypt and Jordan were in charge of those territories, nobody cared about creating a Palestinian state.

Instead Jordan destroyed 58 synagogues in East Jerusalem and desecrated 38,000 of the 50,000 ancient and modern Jewish graves in the cemetery on the Mount of Olives. They used the stones for latrines and walkways.

In 1967 when Egypt and Syria announced on national media their intention to attack Israel, Jordan joined and attacked Israel.

However, Israel defeated them all and took back Gaza and the "West Bank", including capturing the Golan Heights from Syria from where it was shelling Israeli territory for sometime.

Due to international pressure, Israel, under prime minister Ariel Sharon, about two years ago, uprooted Jewish settlements from Gaza, from where Hamas has been firing rockets at Israel.

Last week alone it fired about 500 rockets. To those calling for peace talks, how can you talk peace with a person who does not recognise your existence and seeks to destroy you?

The goal of Arabs is simple: to wipe out the state of Israel from the map and create the twenty-second Arab state. If anyone doubts me, just listen to what Yasser Arafat, the late leader of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, told a reporter, Arianna Palazzi in 1970:
"The question of borders doesn't interest us...From the Arab standpoint, we mustn't talk about borders. Palestine is nothing but a drop in an enormous ocean.
Our nation is the Arabic nation that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea and beyond it....The PLO is fighting Israel in the name of Pan-Arabism. What you call ˜Jordan' is nothing more than Palestine.
" Need I say more?
http://www.newvision.co.ug/D/8/459/667425?highlight

Arab terrorism, with its commitment to the eradication of Israel, is the principal cause of the collapse of the peace process. Terrorism's primary targets are virtually all the Middle Eastern regimesnot just Israel's but those of the surrounding Arab countries as well. Fear of being overthrown by terrorists leads those regimes, in an effort to divert their people's attention toward external targets, to inundate them with anti-Israel propaganda. Israel's willingness in recent years to abandon its formerly nonnegotiable positionsand the withdrawal of Israel Defense Forces from southern Lebanon and the offer to give up the Golan Heights to Syriahas created a conviction among Arabs that terrorism is working and that no accommodation of Israel need be considered.

The Arab world today consists of 21 countries, all members of the League of Arab States. Few seem comfortable with their own statehood except as a means of casting a veil of international legitimacy over their own version of power politics. Some, such as Morocco, are hereditary paternalistic monarchies whose royal heads are uneasy indeed. Some are secular regimes on the national socialist model, dominated by the Ba'th Party. Still others, such as Egypt and Syria, borrowed Western constitutional forms but have never achieved legitimacy because they have not been accompanied by democratic freedoms. A look at the region as a whole reveals inauthentic "states" attempting to function within the concept of pan-Arabism (one Arab nation) within the wider body of statesmembers of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, where, if anywhere, the unfilled office of the caliphate resideswith a commitment to pan-Islam. All these concepts hamper the full participation of the region in the contemporary international system of states. The absence of credible political systems and the inability to participate in a world of state powers incite protests under the banner of Islam.

Judenrein Palestine?
Rachel Neuwirth
January 09, 2003
Why is it that people are proposing a Middle East peace plan that will make Judea and Samaria Judenrein (the Nazi term for a place with no Jews)?
It is the historic homeland and birthplace of the Jewish people, yet many world leaders - including every American president - believe that the removal of Jewish communities from Judea and Samaria is a crucial prerequisite for a peaceful resolution to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Unfortunately, every Israeli prime minister has been pressured to follow this policy.
Jews have lived in Judea and Samaria for thousands of years. In fact, the Jewish religion and people were birthed in Hebron. We know of the ancient Jewish presence there from both the Hebrew and Christian Bibles and from abundant archaeological and documentary evidence.
No one denies that the oldest document showing the historical connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, including Judea and Samaria (a.k.a. the West Bank), is the Bible. Genesis 24:18 says: "And Abram moved his tent, and came and dwelt by the terebinths of Mamre, which are in Hebron." And the world's oldest documentation of real estate being purchased for full price is also in the Bible (see Genesis 23:9). And for those who doubt biblical references, there is substantial evidence in archaeological findings (see http://www.sciencedaily.com/encyclopedia/History\_of\_ancient\_Israel\_and\_Judah).
Historically, the Jewish homeland included what is today called Judea and Samaria, the Golan Heights, and a considerable part of today's Jordan. The land was inhabited mainly by Jews and was ruled by Jews. Therefore, Lord Robert Cecil, former acting British foreign secretary, was right to use the name "Judea" for the whole land in his famous remark: "Our wish is that Arabian countries shall be for the Arabs, Armenia for the Armenians, and Judea for the Jews." (December 2, 1917; see http://www.esek.com/jerusalem/iudaea.html.)
The Jewish presence there has been continuous, except for 19 years from 1948 to 1967 when the area became Judenrein. And during that 19 year period, the Jordanians and Arabs of the remaining portion of "Palestine" desecrated Jewish holy sites and cemeteries in an attempt to deny that the Jews ever lived there.
Those who advocate the dismantling of the Jewish communities in this territory are advocating a policy of ethnic cleansing. This may sound extreme, but from the early 1900s, the Arabs carried out a policy of ethnic cleansing that included the massacre and pogroms in 1929 and 1936 in Hebron. Both the spirit and practice of ethnic cleansing are being continued in the current conflict (see http://www.palestinefacts.org/pf\_mandate\_grand\_mufti.php).
So, what did UN Secretary-General Kofi Anan mean in his 2001 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech when he said, "A genocide begins with the killing of one man not for what he has done, but because of who he is. A campaign of 'ethnic cleansing' begins with one neighbor turning on another."
Does this not also apply to the Israeli Jews who have re-established homes in Judea and Samaria? Should they be ethnically cleansed from the heart of their historical homeland? Does the Nobel recipient not know a real victim of ethnic cleansing when he sees one?
The same people and countries that condemned ethnic cleansing in the Balkans, Cyprus, Rwanda and Tibet totally reverse themselves when it comes to the right of Jewish people to live in the lands of their historic patrimony. If Chinese people were forbidden to live in China, Buddhists barred from Tibet, or Irish-Catholics banned from South Boston, there would be a tremendous outcry against such injustices. But where is the outcry against the removal of Jews from Judea their historical homeland?
Is there any other nation on earth that has such a legitimate birth certificate as Israel? And if the Jews have no such document, then the Old and New Testaments are worthless.
The war for Israel's independence ended in 1949 with the Jordanians in full control of Judea and Samaria and the Old City of Jerusalem (the "West Bank"), cutting the Jewish people off from their most holy religious sites. The official status of these areas, then, was disputed territories, as no one had held sovereignty there since the defeat of the Ottoman Empire. Only two countries, Pakistan and Britain, recognized the 19-year Jordanian "illegal occupation". Even the entire Arab world refused to recognize it and, consequently, it was illegal and illegitimate ab initio.
After the 1967 war, the Jewish people have simply been returning to the land from which they were forcibly expelled during the first Arab-Israeli war of 1948-49.
This territory has always been known as Judea and Samaria. Do the names "Jew" (for Judea) and "Samaritan" (as in "good Samaritan") sound familiar? In fact, Shemer, founder of Asher, a clan of one of the twelve tribes of Israel, was the owner and eponym of the hills of Samaria. Is there anything Arab or "Palestinian" about either? Even UN Resolution 181, the Partition Plan of 1947, refers to these territories as Judea and Samaria (http://www.yale.edu/lawweb/avalon/mideast/mideast.htm).
The word "occupiers" does not apply to the Jews. Prior to the illegal Jordanian occupation of 1948-67, Jews had maintained several thousand years of continual residence in the area. However, the term does apply to both the Jordanians and the "Palestinian" Arab squatters of today (http://www.tzemachdovid.org/Facts/islegal1.shtml).
In the early part of the 20th century, the Arab population carried out a war against the Jewish inhabitants of the area. This resulted in a series of massacres in Hebron, the birth place of Judaism, in 1929, as well as numerous other violent attacks, such as the 1936-39 pogroms against Jews, ending in the total expulsion of the Jewish population from much of Judea, Samaria and the Old City of Jerusalem.
As a result of the Israeli victory in 1967, Jewish people returned to this area and re-unified the historic capital of Jerusalem. Many of the Jews who had been expelled from this territory, or whose parents and grandparents were murdered by rampaging Arabs, have merely returned to their previous homes. And in subsequent years, additional Jewish communities (not "illegal settlements") were built, mainly for security purposes, and others for historical and emotional reasons on mainly state-owned land and historical outposts.
Judea and Samaria were liberated, not stolen or occupied, from Jordan (see http://www.tzemachdovid.org/Facts/islegal3.shtml and http://www.internationalwallofprayer.org/A-143-A-Settlers-History-of-Settlements).
Since 1967, 261 new Arab settlements have been built in Judea and Samaria. According to international law, all of these are illegal, as no sovereignty was ever recognized over these territories; yet no one calls for their removal. Why is it that no one talks about those Arab settlements as obstacles to peace especially when they are bases for carrying out terrorism, and their inhabitants are constantly taught virulent hatred toward the Jewish people and the West?
Dismantling the Jewish communities in these territories will only reward terrorism.
The Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, are a litmus test of Arab intentions. 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, 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.

The Palestinian Conflict: Brought to you by the Arab League.

Richard D. Molfese

The term unite is to put together to form a single unit. That "unity" is the quality or state of being made one: Unification is the resulting singleness of effect or symmetry and consistency of style and character (Merriam-Webster online).

The Arab League is not a union of Arab States working for unification toward Arab solidarity or peace. It is rather a fragmented group of power, status and wealth seekers trying to keep what they have and dumbing down their neighbors. Since 1947, these statesmen are always vying to elevate themselves in the eyes of the Arab people, while they negotiate with Western and Soviet governments secretly for economic gains. These Arab leaders have created obstacles in their unification process for their personal gain. So they do not care that their talk is cheapened when, as states, they show their elitism against their neighbors, or when they flaunt their wealth on poor nations. The reigning Monarchs and Arab leaders claim their intellect and birthright justifies their positions as leaders...

... I will focus on the Palestinians, who I believe they are made to bleed to keep all Arabs consciously united through their pain, while the Arab leaders keep the people's focus away from what they do. I see the parallel of the American Indian and their reservation lands they were shipped off to, as the Palestinian refugee camps are walled prisons for an indigenous people.

I would mention the Kurds also, but they have somehow denied the partitioning of outside influences, and have grown. Though they are still without a real bordered homeland they do have much land in which they can roam freely. I try to understand why America is looked at as the real evil and make suggestions of the future of the Middle East and peace.

Reasons

The Arab League is fragmented by the boundaries and agendas, of their individual state mentality. The Arabs talk of peace and unity but negotiate alone. It is this individuality that prevents the Arab League from being cohesive and standing as one voice. Furthermore, the Arab League states align themselves with the United States or Russia either for monetary gain, status or power usually undermining the Arab position. The Arabs themselves place economic and social barriers between their people. The haves, do not want to give, to the have nots. Further separation occurs in the Arab community, from intellectual superiority, money, degrees in devotion to Islam and history of the people themselves. Yes, even in Islam racism does exist. To try and understand the vast differences we must look at the geography of the Middle East.

The Land

Arab lands are vast and range some 5,000 miles and encompass some 5.25 million square miles. The lands border on the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, the Arabian Gulf, the Arabian Sea, the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. The Arab territory in Africa is 72% with the remaining 28% in Asia. While the region is dominated by dry climatic conditions, it is the natural land bridge from Asia to Africa and to Indonesia. The Arabs have enjoyed so many different cultures mingled into their past, their minds are torn between the individual state they are, and the Arab unity for which they long to have. Contrary to popular belief, relatively few Arab countries possess petroleum and natural gas resources. They are mainly agricultural and have other natural resources: including iron-ore, lead, phosphate, cobalt and manganese. These stats were on the Middle East New web site. The harshness of the desert and the oppressive heat has kept development of the Middle East down and to a minimum. Water is a scarce resource and well regulated by governments. The Middle East is a gate way three continents and largely desert and barren rock. The temperature swings can range from 32 degrees at night to 130 degrees with a 12 hour period. The climate drives the people, restricting activities by day, slowing the region and the people down.

Islamic History and Law

The Middle East was also the birth place of the three great monotheistic religions -- Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The followers of those faiths lived in harmony throughout the centuries in the same land; each considered themselves the people of one God. The Arabic term Islam literally means "surrender," or "submission." Islam's believers, accept surrender to the will of Allah. Allah is viewed as a unique God--creator, sustainer, and restorer of the world. Muhammad, it is claimed, was the last of the great prophets which included Adam, Noah, Moses, Jesus and some others. The basic belief of Islam is expressed in the shahadah, the Muslim confession of faith, "There is no god but God; Muhammad is the prophet of God." ... Allah's presence is everywhere, he does not imbue into anything or anyone. He is the sole Creator, and sustainer of the universe, wherein every creature knows his lordship and unity. According to the Qur'an, God created two apparently parallel species, man and jinn. Man was created from clay and the jinn were created from fire. The jinn are endowed with reason and responsibility but are more prone to evil than man. The Qur'an is primarily directed at man, and is self described as the guide for the human race. Despite man's lofty position, the Qur'an describes human nature as frail and faltering, a view share by the two other religions. Man is viewed as rebellious, arrogant and full of pride. The cardinal sin of man, is mans likeness in aspiring to God and thereby violating the unity of God. True faith (identified as iman), consists of belief in the immaculate Divine Unity and Islam is in one's submission to the Divine will. There are three different sects that follow, to different degrees; Islam thought their basic beliefs are the same.

Religious Disunity

The Kharijis sect believed that the basis of rule was righteous character and piety, any Muslim, irrespective of race creed or color could become ruler, provided he or she satisfies the conditions of piety. This is in contrast to the claims of the Shi'ah that the ruler must belong to the family of the Prophet, and in contrast to the Sunnis that the head of state must belong to the Prophet's tribe. Sunni political theory is essentially a product of circumstance-an after-the-fact rationalization of historical developments. So, between the Shi'ah legitimism that restricts rule to Ali's family, and the Kharji democratic beliefs, Sunnis holds to the position that the rule belongs to the Quraysh (the Prophet's tribe), the condition that actually existed. The Sunni sect... making it possible for diverse sects to recognize and coexist with one another. Sunni theologians place emphasis on divine omnipotence at the expense of the freedom and efficacy of the human will. The Sunnites support the concept that "Muslims must obey even a tyrannical ruler." While the Islamic community throughout the world is united by the two essential beliefs in (1) the Oneness of God and (2) the divine mission of His Prophet, there developed shortly after Muhammad's death a debate within the Islamic community over who should succeed the Prophet as leader of the faithful. This debate split the community into Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims. It is important to remember, however, that on fundamental issues, Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims are in basic agreement since they both draw on the Qur'an and the Shari'ah, body of Islamic Law. Even in their religious views they have unique sects that further fracture, an Arab unity.

Islamic Law and Reform

The Law covered the vast range of the Middle East and held in check all the tribes that roamed within, for centuries. Islamic Law (Shari'a) is swift, brutal and severe, is considered barbaric by Westerns. The inequality toward women has been a catalyst for, the world to request reforms be made to Islamic Law. During the early 20th century, the Western powers came in and brought their form of government and punishment the degrees of Shari'a followed have changed. Today, Arabs are split between following the Shari'a as it has been for centuries and reforming it to reduce the harshness. The Arabs are worried that if there is a change to Shari'a it will become slow and ineffective, as they perceive Western Law to be. Though Arabs would want Shari'a, without the harsh barbaric punishment, i.e. stoning, beheading etc., to be their law... Wahbabism: which is the extreme form of Islam is practiced in Saudi Arabia and Nigeria further threatens the stability of the region, through intolerance for other beliefs.

The Arab League

Since the creation of the Arab states from 1909 to the present, the Arab Leaders have always been guided by their own national agenda. They have rarely remained cohesive and usually fight among themselves. The Arabs are distracted from a focused unity because of their separate agreements. The Arab League of Nations created in 1945, was a compromise that recognized the sovereignty of each Arab state. In 1945, the Arabs had put forth many proposals for a unification plan: "Fertile Crescent Unity," "Greater Syria," and "the Arab Federation." these plans were not to survive. It was the Arab League's promise to help its member nations but none would sacrifice their prerogatives of sovereignty, which the Arab League charter upheld. Article 8 of the charter upheld the principle of non-intervention: "Each member state shall respect the systems of governments established in the other member state and regard them as the exclusive concern of those states. Each shall pledge to abstain from any action calculated to change established systems of government. (12)" This portion of the Arab's League charter, which embodies 20 Articles and 3 annexed provisions, points to its greatest weakness. The Arab state can justify its actions to advance its own ambitions under the greater Arab cause. Presently, there are 22 states in the Arab League. The Arabs are further fragmented by their separate agreements with each other. The United Arab Republic which was a political union of Egypt and Syria formed in 1958 and lasted until 1971. This agreement was the initial step toward creating a pan-Arab union, the republic abolished Syrian and Egyptian citizenship. The Arabs were to live in "Arab Territory". The Arab Maghreb Union was established in 1989 to promote cooperation between and integration among the Arab states of North Africa. The cohesion of the Arabs is ever fractured by their constant search for commitment between each other.

The Palestinian Issue

The Arabs are searching for a binding coalition to unite them as a nation, and the Palestinians have been used to keep the memory alive. My belief is that the Israeli and Palestinian conflict was a joint debacle in which Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Britain and France all played a major role. The subjugation of the Palestinians by Arabs was far more damaging and demeaning in the worldview then what the Israelis have done. After Britain, France and Russia split the Middle East, the Palestinians who had settled all over the land, were separated. Their lands were diminished and now called by other names. "The land called Israel and Palestine is a small, (10,000 square miles at present) land at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. During its long history, its area, population and ownership varied greatly. The present state of Israel formally occupies all the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean ocean, bounded by Egypt in the south, Lebanon in the north, with Syria (larger border area) and Jordan in the East. The recognized borders of Israel constitute about 78% of the land. The remainder is divided between land occupied by Israel since the 1967, 6-day war and the autonomous regions under the control of the Palestinian autonomy. The Gaza strip occupies an additional 141 square miles south of Israel along the sea coast, and is mostly under the control of the Palestinian authority with small areas occupied by Israeli settlements(9)." Similarly the Native Americans found boundaries where none were before. Both the Palestinians and Native Americans believed that they were members in their respective communities. The Palestinians and Native Americans were angered, but did not mass in numbers, and so were dismissed as people who would fight for their lands. The lands where they settled were still theirs, or so they thought. Since the Palestinians were a roaming population, and they had had the largest free range. The Palestinian people had no leadership and were not organized as other Arab "states" was. They had worked side by side with Arabs and Jews alike, for generations. Now the Palestinians were to be partitioned off by their own people. "The Arab League, at the instigation of Haj Amin Al-Husseini, declared a war to rid Palestine of the Jews. In fact however, the Arab countries each had separate agendas. Abdullah, king of Jordan, had an informal and secret agreement with Israel, negotiated with Golda Meir, to annex the portions of Palestine allocated to the Palestinian state in the West Bank, and prevent formation of a Palestinian state. Syria wanted to annex the northern part of Palestine, including Jewish and Arab areas. (9)." In my opinion the Arab handling of the Palestinian plight caused more people to look away for such a long period of time.

Westerners and Americans are Devils

Why have the Arabs taken to a kind of Marxism that denounces Western capitalism and America as the most dangerous to their well being? What has America done to earn the Arab's hatred? The Arabs have found it easy to believe that we have no morals and that we are imperialists. Yet our history shows that we have never been aggressive to the Middle East. The Russians ravaged Afghanistan for years, and have been looked at as allies, by the Arabs. The British, French and Italians have all controlled areas of the Middle East, yet they are looked at in a different light, evil but not as evil as America. In 1947, the partitioning of the Middle East was the master plan of the United Nations, the major powers were France, Germany and Russia. The announcement of the Israeli state brought immediate and swift Arab response. Five Arab states launched an attack. America stayed away, and Israel was saved by the Russians, who supplied the weapons that helped Israel beat off the attack. The fledgling Israeli State not only beat the invaders back, but took over land, the West Bank from Jordan and the Gaza Stripe from Saudi Arabia. In 1956 it was America that intervened forcefully to secure the withdrawal of Israel, British and French forces from Egypt. The Americans opened their country to Arabs for schooling, to live and we gave assistance to the Middle East. Yet the Middle East purchased weapons from Russia and continually denounced America...

Disunity

The Arab world can not find a common ground under which to unite. The Arabs look for binding issues to unify them and want to model their union after the European Union. One rallying point for them has been the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, however, history and circumstances indicate that Arab disunity, and in-fighting are contributing factors to the Palestinian situation. Will the Arab League realize a unity and lasting peace, and settle the Palestinian conflict within the framework of the Arab League? The Arabs are separated from one another by their leaders, their beliefs and their states. They have to overcome these separations, internal to their pan-Arab community in order to thrive. Still, there is a separation that transcends the Arab community and separates them from the rest of the world...

The Arab League must support and give land to the Palestinians. Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia, in particular, must be substantial land donators...

Terror

The Philosopher of Islamic Terror

By PAUL BERMAN

The Islamists and the Pan-Arabists tried to cooperate with one another in Egypt in those days, and there was some basis for doing so. Both movements dreamed of rescuing the Arab world from the legacies of European imperialism. Both groups dreamed of crushing Zionism and the brand-new Jewish state. Both groups dreamed of fashioning a new kind of modernity, which was not going to be liberal and freethinking in the Western style but, even so, was going to be up-to-date on economic and scientific issues. And both movements dreamed of doing all this by returning in some fashion to the glories of the Arab past. Both movements wanted to resurrect, in a modern version, the ancient Islamic caliphate of the seventh century, when the Arabs were conquering the world.

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 Muslim Brotherhood... Many years later, Osama bin Laden would be one of Muhammad Qutb's students.

Sayyid Qutb... trial... Eqypt on charges he was helping an effort to overthrow the government. He was hanged in 1966. Egyptian writer and educator Sayyid Qutb spent the better half of 1949 in Greeley, Colo., studying curriculum at Colorado State Teachers College, now the University of Northern Colorado. What he saw prompted him to condemn America as a soulless, materialistic place that no Muslim should aspire to live in. Qutb's writings would later become the theoretical basis for many radical Islamic groups of today -- including al Qaeda. Qutb increasingly saw the redemption of Egypt in the application of Islamic law.

THE GRAND MUFTI OF JERUSALEM AND THE NAZIFICATION OF THE ARAB WORLD
...Muftism, the poisonous and fanatic legacy of Haj Amin el-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, continues to maintain a firm grip in the Arab mind and the Arab world today much to the determent of both the Arab peoples who are forced to live under the regressive socialist jack-boot of Mufti inspired regimes and to the possibility of peace between the Israelis and the Arabs. After the defeat of the Mufti's Nazi sponsors in 1945, the Soviet Union and the international left largely filled the power vacuum and the left remains the primary booster of Muftism in the Arab and Islamic world today. Muftism bears a large responsibility for modern terrorism and fanatic Islamic movements. While Europe was largely de-Nazified after the war, Muftism, or Arab-Islamic Nazism remains a major political and philosophical force. Arab peoples continue to groan under Nazi-Arab oppressive regimes and Mufti influenced pan-Arabists continue to wage war against non-Islamic nations and peoples.

MEMRI: "America will be destroyed, Allah willing" - Friday Sermon on Palestinian Authority Television (Tuesday, March 25, 2003)

Friday Sermon on Palestinian Authority Television

The following are excerpts from a Friday sermon which was delivered at the Sheikh 'Ijlin Mosque in Gaza by Palestinian Authority preacher Sheikh Ibrahim Madeiris and was broadcast live on Palestinian Authority TV:(1)

"...Allah drowned Pharaoh and those who were with him. Allah drowns the Pharaohs of every generation. Allah will drown the little Pharaoh, the dwarf, the Pharaoh of all times, of our time, the American President. Allah will drown America in our seas, in our skies, in our land. America will drown and all the oppressors will drown."

MEMRI: The Arab Press on the War and News from Iraqi Television

...Another clergyman said: "... The truth is that this crime that was committed by the enemies of Islam, the infidels and the polytheists... demonstrate the sentiments of the infidel enemy towards Islam and Muslims. Islam's message is the most important monotheistic message. The enemy wants to obliterate Islam, to obliterate Allah's edicts, to obliterate everything that Islam brought about... He burned the Koran, and by that wanted to burn the faith of Muslims and their ties with Allah. This crime is no different than the rest of their crimes against Islam and Muslims. We are not surprised by this crime, because the enmity towards Islam and Muslims is apparent. Their attempt to burn the Koran is as severe as their attempts to kill the Muslim nation and to shed Muslim blood... All these acts demonstrate the animosity of the infidels towards Muslims in general, Arabs in particular, and particularly towards Iraq..."

An Iraqi officer, who stood in front of a group of soldiers engaged in marching drills, said: "Oh, Jihad fighters and Arab believers... we greet you with the greetings of Arabism and Islam. We are happy to show you some of the drills of our brothers the Arab volunteer."

Theories of Terrorism ...Fascism supports terrorism at home and abroad. Charismatic leaders are usually given supreme powers to crack down on dissidents, peacemakers, and anyone who doesn't abide by the "cult of the individual" which worships a He-man mentality and the party line. With the frequent wars and militaristic ventures that come with fascism, an effort is made to demonize the enemy as sub-humans who deserve extinction. These enemies are also made into scapegoats for all the past problems a country has had. Fascism appeals to the frustrations and resentments of a race of people who think they ought to have a bigger place at the global table. When combined with an anti-western slant (the United States as Great Satan), fascism becomes a means of social identity (... Pan-Arabism, Islamo-Fascism) as well as a facilitator of terrorism.

It harkens back to the same narcissitically defiant pan-Arabism and fascism of Gemal Abdel Nasser, the tyrant of Egypt in the 1960s who after having his entire military handed to him in the Yom Kippur war of '67 gave a speech to his brainwashed populace that "we have actually not lost the war since you still have me as your leader." Bin-Laden's resurfacing seems to imply the same thing.

The Wrong Words (December 17, 2004) Moral and linguistic clarity are crucial in this conflict By Steven Vincent... I repeat -- words matter. Terms like "paramilitaries," "death squads," and "fascists" clarify the nature of our enemy and underscore a fundamental point that the American media has inexcusably ignored: it is the Iraqi people who are under attack. They are the victims, their future is threatened, they are bleeding from wounds inflicted by pan-Arab Baathists and pan-Islamic jihadists. By calling these neo-fascists the "Resistance" the media reverses the relationship of assailant and defender and renders a terrible disservice to the millions of Iraqis who oppose, in ways large and small, these totalitarian forces. Hadeel gave her life resisting fascism. Yet to the Ted Ralls and Michael Moores of this world, she was a Quisling who deserved to die.

Column One: The new Zionist occupiers
Dec 28, 2006 22:06 | Updated Dec 31, 2006 12:57
...This Arab-Islamic union was given ideological heft last week at a two-day conference in Doha, Qatar. "The Sixth Pan-Arab and Islamic Conference" brought together some 270 leading pan-Arab and jihadist leaders from throughout the world. The jihadists, led by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, included Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, Hizbullah leader Hassan Hadroug and the Iraqi Sunni jihadist ideologue Sheikh Hathir al-Dari.
Among the pan-Arabists was Khair al-Din Haseeb, who the US Army refers to as the "father of pan-Arab nationalism." Iranian and Iraqi Shiite ayatollahs also reportedly attended.
Qaradawi announced that the goal of the conference was to merge the pan-Arab and Islamic wars against the US and Israel specifically and against the infidels generally. In his words, "All Arabs, Kurds, Sunni, Shia, right-wingers, left-wingers should be united in the full-scale battle with the enemies. They are launching a political, economic, social and civilizational, and cultural battle against us and we should unify our efforts to stand up to it."
The participants all echoed Qaradawi's call for Fatah and Hamas to formally merge and so reflect the wider trend of consolidation in the cause of jihad that is occurring throughout the Arab world. As Qaradawi put it, "Pan-Arabism and Islam are very closely linked. There is no contradiction between them. Whoever is seeking to separate Pan-Arabism from Islam is trying to separate the soul from the body."
That the pan-Arabists and Islamists are military allies in the global jihad was made clear this week in the Horn of Africa as Sunday Ethiopia invaded Somalia.

...standoff with Muqtada al-Sadr, Iraq's most prominent Shia Muslim rebel.  
[...]
It would be odd if the Iranians, who are Shias, like most Iraqis, were not trying to win friends across the border. They enjoy good relations with some members of Iraq's American-appointed Governing Council, and are cosying up to moderate Shia groups such as the Dawa party. Long before the uprising started, Mr Sadr, as the scion of a distinguished clerical family, was received by Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
[...] 
Racial discrimination
Race is a factor. The silent clerics regard Mr Sadr as a pan-Arabist bigot, and fear that he plans to end a long tradition of Iranian influence over Iraq's main Shia seminary, in the town of Najaf. They much prefer Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, Najaf's senior ayatollah, who is of Iranian origin.
 
Qom's future depends partly on events in Najaf. Half the 3,000-odd Iraqi clerics who took refuge in Iran for fear of Saddam Hussein are back home. So holy is Najaf that, given stability, Iranian clerics could follow. An exodus of senior ones to Iraq would embarrass Mr Khamenei.
 
Mr Sadr's anti-Iranian chauvinism, and his unpredictability, make him an impossible ally. But the choice is limited. For any Iraqi leader, too close an association with Iran is a liability. Mr Khamenei would love to have Mr Sistani, the grandest of all ayatollahs, in his pocket, but he is not co-operating. He disapproves of Iran's theocracy. Mocked by Mr Sadr's supporters for his Iranian accent and birth, he is keeping his distance from Iran's establishment.

Africa /Africans [in General]

Between 642 and 670 CE, more Arab invaders poured into Africa and occupied areas known today as Tunisia, Libya, Algeria and Morocco, where they physically eliminated most of the native (Berber) inhabitants. The Berbers that escaped death ran westwards and southwards towards the Sahara. In the 11th century CE, fresh Arab migrants of nomadic origin, migrated into North Africa to displace and drive the remaining pastoral Berbers deeper into the Sahara desert. With Arab consolidation and backing in Northern Africa, new waves of Arab invaders and migrants pushed deeper into the Nile banks, inhabited then by the Nilotic Shiluk, and continued all the way down to where Dueim stands today, belonging then to the Dinka and Furnawi autochthons. The entire territory was known at the time as Bilad as-Sudan (the Arabic for land of the Blacks), and currently includes the Republic of Sudan. Continuing with their Arabization of African land policy through elimination, displacement, separation, marginalization and suppression, the Arab invaders of Bilad as-Sudan, over the passage of time, decimated the population of (the Nilotic Shiluk, Dinka and Furnawi autochthons) , owners of the land, and pushed to restrict the rest waiting for elimination to Darfur area and the South of the country, which the Arab invaders are now intent on taking from the native Black Africans. This is the genesis of the war in Sudan. It is a racial war. The Arabs want the Republic of Sudan, which by land mass is the largest country in Africa, to be an entirely Arab state, by exterminating the Black native population gradually to the last person.
 
The war in Sudan is our modern day Haiti war in terms of black liberation, and our recent fight against apartheid. Arabs are carrying out ethnic cleansing right now in Southern Sudan, with the financial support of the Arab world, particularly Libya and Saudi Arabia. China is backing them against Africa. The Janjaweed, with Sudanese and Arab governments' backing, are trying to wipe out the black population so as to expropriate their lands, but Africans, including Nigerians, do not know where their interests should reside. The Arabs succeeded in doing the same thing in Northern Africa where the original Nubian African owners of the land have almost all been wiped out and the rest marginalized (enslaved) by their Arab invaders/settlers since 642 CE.
 
Islamization is not the problem in Sudan because the majority Furnawi people of Darfur are Moslems. Arabs do not consider Black Moslems authentic or of consequence. At best, they concede to blacks, the role of ordained slaves or animals, to be used as beasts of burden by the "superior Arab race." The rule applies to all blacks, whether Moslems or non-Moslems and whether of Nigerian (Hausa/Fulani or Yoruba extractions) , Tanzanians, Ugandans, Malians or African-Americans.
 
A traveller in Sudan observed in 1930 that "In the eyes of the Arab rulers of Sudan, the black slaves were simply animals given by Allah to make life of Arabs comfortable." Osama Bin Laden, in a discussion with the Sudanese-American novelist, Kola Boof, in Morocco in 1996 said, "when next you meet an Arab, you should ask what is the Arabic word for slave, you'll discover that the words are the same "abeed." Which is why, when an Arab looks at a black African, what he sees is a slave."
 
In 1962, the Arab Sudanese General, Hassan Beshir Nasr, while flagging off his troops to the war front against black Africans in South Sudan, declared: "We don't want these black slaves... what we want is their land." Arabs' attitude to blacks derives from Genesis' racist fiction of the three sons of Noah -- Ham, Japheth and Shem. Arabs claim that "the accursed Ham was the progenitor of the black race; that Japheth begat the full-faced, small eyes Europeans, and that Shem fathered the handsome of face with beautiful hair Arabs," of course.
 
A coalition of 50 charities in Darfur, Sudan, published a study in mid December, 2008, confirming what the world already knew that the Janjaweed and the Sudanese army, with the backing of their government, during joint or individual attacks, raped, tortured and killed Sudanese Africans and razed their villages to repopulate them with Arab nomads. They rounded up and abducted escapees from hide-outs in the bush, and at other times raided refugee camps to kidnap Africans as sex and labour slaves, working them to the bones as domestic and farm labour. The army flew their captives in planes to Khartoum at night and shared them among soldiers, like you allocate bags of commodities, and used them as sex and domestic servants. Kidnapped victims interviewed, said their captors told them that 'they were not human beings and that they were there to serve them.'
 
In the five years between 2003 and 2008, over 300,000 Sudanese Africans were killed, 100,000 abducted and 2.7 million rendered homeless refugees, with their land appropriated by Arabs. The Khatoum government admitted 14,000 kidnaps. You can imagine what happened when the world turned a blind eye on Sudan, in the twenty years between 1983 when the conflict began, and 2003. You have to ask yourself what African leaders are doing in AU with Arabs. Arabs are Africans' mortal foes.
 
Al Qaeda's bombing of the American Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, left 260 black civilians that included 12 Americans, dead. Over 4,000 Kenyans and Tanzanians were wounded. A remorseless top Arab journalist justified the attack by quoting Stalin: "You can't make an omelet without breaking eggs."
 
Ibn Sina (Avicenna 980--1037), Arab's most famous and influential philosopher/ scientist in Islam, described blacks as "people who are by their very nature slaves." He wrote: "All African women are prostitutes, and the whole race of African men are abeed (slave) stock." He equated black people with "rats plaguing the earth."
 
Ibn Khaldum, an Arab historian stated that "Blacks are characterized by levity and excitability and great emotionalism," adding that "they are every where described as stupid."
 
al-Dimashqi, an Arab pseudo scientist wrote, "the Equator is inhabited by communities of blacks who may be numbered among the savage beasts. Their complexion and hair are burnt and they are physically and morally abnormal. Their brains almost boil from the sun's heat..."
 
Ibn al-Faqih al-Hamadhani painted this no less horrid picture of black people, "...the zanj (the blacks) are overdone until they are burned, so that the child comes out between black, murky, malodorous, stinking, and crinkly-haired, with uneven limbs, deficient minds, and depraved passions"

RACISM
The Arab world's dirty secret
By Mona Eltahawy Published: December 10, 2008
 

NEW YORK: I was on my way home on the Cairo Metro, lost in thought as I listened to music when I noticed a young Egyptian taunting a Sudanese girl. She reached out and tried to grab the girl's nose and laughed when the girl tried to brush her hand away.

 
The Sudanese girl looked to be Dinka, from southern Sudan and not the northern Sudanese who "look like us." She was obviously in distress.
 
I removed my headphones and asked the Egyptian woman "Why are you treating her like that?"
 
She exploded into a tornado of yelling, demanding to know why it was my business. I told her it was my business because as an Egyptian and as a Muslim who was riding the Metro, her behavior was wrong and I would not stay silent about it. I knew she was Muslim because she wore a scarf.
 
I told her that the way she was treating the Sudanese girl made the scarf on her head meaningless. Her mother asked me why I didn't cover my hair and I replied that I didn't want to be a hypocrite like her and her daughter.
 
Today in Opinion
The rules on stem cellsThe prostate cancer muddleA small and dangerous spatAs distressing as I found that young woman's behavior, I was even more distressed that the other women in the Metro car watched and said nothing. They made no attempt to defend the Sudanese girl nor to defend me when I confronted the Egyptian woman.
 
After the Egyptian woman got off at her station, I asked the other women why they didn't do anything. One woman said she stayed silent because the racist woman would've yelled at her. So what, I asked? If enough of the women had confronted her, she would have been outnumbered.
 
I apologized to the Sudanese girl for the Egyptian woman's behavior and she thanked me and told me "Egyptians are bad." I could only imagine other times she'd been abused publicly.
 
We are a racist people in Egypt and we are in deep denial about it. On my Facebook page, I blamed racism for my argument and an Egyptian man wrote to deny that we are racists and used as his proof a program on Egyptian Radio featuring Sudanese songs and poetry!
 
Our silence over racism not only destroys the warmth and hospitality we are proud of as Egyptians, it has deadly consequences.
 
What else but racism on Dec. 30, 2005, allowed hundreds of riot policemen to storm through a makeshift camp in central Cairo to clear it of 2,500 Sudanese refugees, trampling or beating to death 28 people, among them women and children?
 
What else but racism lies behind the bloody statistics at the Egyptian border with Israel where, since 2007, Egyptian guards have killed at least 33 migrants, many from Sudan's Darfur region, including a pregnant woman and a 7-year-old girl?
 
The racism I saw on the Cairo Metro has an echo in the Arab world at large, where the suffering in Darfur goes ignored because its victims are black and because those who are creating the misery in Darfur are not Americans or Israelis and we only pay attention when America and Israel behave badly.
 
We love to cry "Islamophobia" when we talk about the way Muslim minorities are treated in the West and yet we never stop to consider how we treat minorities and the most vulnerable among us.
 
The U.S. television network ABC recently staged a scenario in which an actor worked in a bakery in Texas and refused to serve an actress dressed as a Muslim woman in a headscarf. The scene was an experiment to see if other customers would help the Muslim woman.
 
Thirteen customers defended her by yelling at the clerk, asking for the manager or walking out in disgust. Six customers supported the bigoted clerk and 22 looked away and did absolutely nothing.
 
I wonder now which Egyptian television channel would dare to stage such an experiment? And which Arab television channel would dare to stage a program that so boldly confronts us with the question "what would you do?"
 
For those of us who move between different worlds - where one day we are a majority as I am as a Sunni Muslim in Egypt and another we are a minority as I am as a Muslim in America - it is clear that to defend the rights of a Sudanese girl on the Cairo Metro means to defend my right on the New York Subway.
 
We live in a world that is connected in unprecedented ways. And that connection now extends to rights. If we want our rights to be respected we must do the right thing, everywhere.

Terrorism and Violence in the Sudan: The Islamist Manipulation of Darfur... During the 1980s the Umma Party government of Sadiq al-Mahdi and private sponsors (including General Swahr al-Dahab, a former President of Sudan) began arming Arab militias in South Darfur known as Murahalin. The object of the militias was to put pressure on the Bahr al-Ghazal heartland of the Dinkas (the leading tribe in the Sudanese Peoples Liberation Army), which lies directly south of Darfur. With the arms came a Khartoum-based ideology of Arab superiority....
In the 1970s and 1980s many Darfuri followers of the Umma Party were forced into exile in Libya, where they joined Muammar Qadhafi's Islamic Legion, a force of Arabs, Tuareg and West Africans. Many of these exiles absorbed heavy doses of the radical Arabist ideology propagated by Qadhafi at the time. Qadhafi proposed the creation of an "Arab corridor" through North Africa, which implied the expulsion or extermination of the non-Arab tribes of central Darfur. Based in Libyan-occupied northern Chad, the Islamic Legion became an important conduit for the cross-border arms trade... In 1998 and 1999, northern Arab tribes began moving their herds into Masalit lands earlier than usual, leading to violence in which the Masalit got the worst of it. Thirty thousand Masalit fled to Chad where they were still attacked by Arab militias.
The Turabi Factor
Former leader of the Muslim Brothers and founder of the National Islamic Front, Hassan al-Turabi's life-long goal of establishing an Arabized and Islamic state in Sudan has run roughshod over the cultural and religious sensibilities of many Sudanese. His first attempt at introducing Islamic law as Attorney-General, the "September Laws" of 1983, was reviled by Muslims and Christians alike. Its emphasis on huddud (traditional Islamic punishments, including amputations and crucifixion) shocked most Sudanese. As the civil war worsened and then-President Ja'afar Nimeiri's position became more precarious in coup-prone Khartoum, Turabi and the Muslim Brothers were rounded up and blamed for the rapidly deteriorating security situation.
Nimeiri's overthrow brought a brief spell of ineffective civilian government until Turabi joined Brigadier Umar al-Bashir in an Islamist coup in 1989. Bashir was installed as President with Turabi as an unaccountable power behind the throne. Strict interpretation of Islamic law returned and a brutal campaign against the non-Arab Nuba of Kordofan in 1991-1992 targeted both Muslims and Christians. Even mosques were destroyed in an explicit rejection of non-Arab Islam.

Arab Colonization Series: Pan-Africanism vs Pan-Arabism... Arab enslavement of Africans is hardly a thing of the past; it persists to this day with a vengeance in such places as Mauritania, while the scourge of colonization and forcible Arabisation of Africans survives in such places as the Sudan. Arab racism, whose wellspring is the Koran itself, acquires a conspicuous new manifes- tation in, for instance, the de-Algerianization of Frantz Fanon.
On top of all this, the assumed quid pro quo of the "alliance" has worked one-sidedly to the Arabs' advantage: the very institutional expres- sion of the "coalition" since 1963, the OAU, has become a virtual captive of the Arabs in the service of Arab interests.
Despite the organization's injunction against the fomenting of religious separatism, the path of Arab imperialism has been oiled and smoothed by the weapon of Islam whose spoils include the conver- sion of untold millions of Africans into Arabophiles, as well as the dissipation of the dream of black unity through the fostering of religious divisiveness among African populations.

Arab League and KKK are Two Faces for One Coin By Elhadi Adam Elomda sudaneseonline.com 3/23 8:54am By Elhadi Adam Elomda

Date: March 23, 2005

Arab League and KKK are Two Faces for One Coin

The KKK (Ku Klux Klan) is equivalent to the Arab League. This is because of the similarity and agreement of these two terrorist organizations' goals. The KKK was founded to promote the white man's superiority in the United States of America. It looks for the dominance of white men within political, economical, and cultural aspects in the USA. The KKK started to achieve its goals by strengthening the relations among the white men in the USA. However, the KKK used discriminative means against the minority black people in the USA in order to achieve its prospective goals. As a result, the back people and disheartened white people revolted against the KKK. Therefore, the KKK was disbanded in the 1940s although it changed its goals of hating the black people into love of white people. By the time the KKK was disbanded in the USA as a terrorist organization, another KKK was born.

This new KKK was born in a different area and has a dissimilar name from the former KKK. Yet, this new born KKK has similar goals to the former one. The newly formed KKK is named the Arab League. The Arab League was established in order to strengthen the political, economical, and cultural relations between its members. The league membership constituted of any independent Arab countries from any continent. Charter I states that "Any independent Arab state has the right to become a member of the League." Ironically, all these Arab KKK members were considered Islamic countries. Their values and motivations descended from their Islamic curriculums and the holy Quran book.

ALLAH'S WHITE FACES
 
Interview with Abul Kasem conducted by Jamie Glazov...
 
December 4, 2008
 
FP: Abul Kasem, welcome to Frontpage Interview.
 
Kasem: Thank you Jamie.
 
FP: I would like to talk to you today about the racial apartheid that exists in Islam. How is the best way for us to begin this discussion?
 
Kasem: Jamie, let's begin with the incredible hypocrisy and double standard hat exists on the issue of racism in general. Islamists living in the West often portray Islam as a religion free of racism. They never fail to criticize western countries of its racist attitude and contempt for people who are not of white complexion. It is quite perplexing that these Islamists never look at their own backyard, of blatant, naked racism enmeshed in the Islamic doctrine.
 
Any non-Arab, non-white, who has been to a Middle East Arab country will tell the story of absolute racism practiced there. It is no secret that in rich Arab countries, (such as Saudi Arabia) people of dark complexion, such those from Africa, South Asia (Pakistan, India, Bangladesh) receive much lower pay than a white person from the western country would. There is strict, unspoken, racial apartheid practiced in the rich Arab countries.
 
FP: And the lefties that are confronted with this reality immediately say how this has nothing to do with Islam and that it is "cultural."
 
Kasem: For sure, and they are completely wrong. The racism practiced in the Arab countries is solidly founded in the very doctrine of Islam.
 
FP: Tell us about it.
 
Kasem: Blatant Islamic racism is permeated in the founts of Islam, the Qur'an, ahadith, Sunna, and Sharia.
 
Let us start the beginning with the end in mind. What I mean is the Islamic Resurrection day.
 
It is an Islamic day of black and white.
 
Allah promises in verse 3:185 that life in this world is an illusion, that every person shall die, and every person will receive his judgment on the resurrection day. In verse 5:26, Allah vouches that all that is on earth will perish. Allah says in verse 10:26 that He will reward the doers of good with paradise and much more; their faces will be radiant-stained. They will never be humiliated.
 
Ibn Kathir says that there will be no blackness or darkness on their faces. In contrast, the faces of the non-believers will be stained with dust, blackness, and darkness. On the Resurrection Day Allah will remove His veil and show His face to the dwellers of paradise. He will make the believers' faces white.
 
Where are all the radical leftist scholars deconstructing these texts in the way they have done to Western literature?
 
The Islamic texts clearly reveal that Allah is a white supremacist; He does not like black faces; He likes white faces.
 
It is clear from the exegesis of these verses that Allah likes white people and dislikes the black people, so much so, in fact, that even when a Black Muslim is entitled to enter Islamic Paradise, he will not enter it until Allah has turned him into a white person. Verse 20:102 says that on the day the trumpet is sounded (resurrection day), the sinners will be gathered together with blue eyes and black faces. A hadith in Mishkat says that on judgment day, Muslims will have white faces, white arms, and white legs (Mishkat al-Masabih, Ibn Abdullah Tabrizi, Sheikh Wali-ud-Din Muahmmad, Tr. Abdul Hameed Siddiqui, Kitab Bhavan, 1784 Kalan Mahal, Daraya Ganj, New Delhi-110002, India.1990, p.1.168).
 
Allah's preference for light-skinned people and His disdain for dark-skinned people is repeated in verse 7:46. Ibn Abbas writes that this verse tells the joy of the believers when they know those who enter hell by their darkened faces and blue eyes and those who enter Paradise by their lightened faces: at once handsome and radiant.
 
Allah says in verse 86:8-9 that He will bring back life for Muhammad to commence judgment. According to ibn Kathir, on resurrection day, a banner will be raised for every deceitful person from his anus; the size of this banner will depend on the size of the perpetrator's calumny. Thus, Muhammad will have no trouble sifting the believers from the non-believers. All Muslims will be of white complexion, and all infidels will be of black complexion, with a banner on his/her anus.
 
In verse 18:29 Allah says that He does not care whether people believe or disbelieve in Islam. The disbelievers (non-Muslims) and the wrongdoers will be surrounded by the tent of fire; they will be given water (acid) like molten brass to shower and to scald their faces. Ibn Kathir says that this verse means the water of Hell is black, and it itself is black and its people are black.
 
In verse 3:107 Allah emphatically pronounces that white faces on the judgment day will receive His mercy. Jalalyn writes that, on judgment day, Muslims' faces will be white.
 
In Mishkat (ibid, p.1.76) we read humans were emitted as white ants from Adam; paradise is for the whites, hell is for the blacks.
 
Islamic Paradise will offer its white male residents unlimited, unbridled, uninterrupted sex with houris of exquisite beauty. These houris will also be of fair (read white), radiant complexion (44:54, 55:70) quite similar to the Hollywood movie actresses. Even the wine-serving boys will be white, like pearls (52:24, 76:19).
 
FP: How do you explain this kind of racism in Islam?
 
Kasem: We might wonder why Allah is such a racist-white supremacist, even on Islamic resurrection day. The answer is Muhammad was a white man. Here are a few examples:
 
Muhammad was white. (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.486)
 
Let us read one hadith from Sahih Bukhari (1.3.63) Narrated Anas bin Malik:
 
While we were sitting with the Prophet in the mosque, a man came riding on a camel. He made his camel kneel down in the mosque, tied its foreleg and then said: "Who amongst you is Muhammad?" At that time the Prophet was sitting amongst us (his companions) leaning on his arm. We replied, "This white man reclining on his arm." The man then addressed him, "O Son of 'Abdul Muttalib."
Tabari writes that Muhammad was of white complexion, reddish tinge, deep-black large eyes, long eyelashes. His breast hair was thin and he had thick beard. He had no hair in his armpit. The perspiration on his face was pearl-like (al-Tabari, Abu Ja'far Muhammad b. Jarir, History of al-Tabari, Translated by Ismail K. Poonwala. State University of New York Press, Albany, 1990, p.ix.157).
 
In Ash-Shifa, Allah, through Sharia, expresses a great disdain for the black people in this manner:
 
Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, the companion of Sahnun said, "Anyone who says that the Prophet was black should be killed. (Ibn Musa al-Yahsubi, Qadi 'Iyad. Ash-Shifa. Tr. Aisha Abdarrahman Bewley. Medina Press, P.O. Box 5531, Inverness IV5 7YA, Scotland, UK, fifth print 2004, p.375)
FP: So who is Allah then?
 
Kasem: Allah is a white Arab supremacist. Allah dearly loves the Arabs. He chose them over all other races, making them the best pedigree in the human race.
 
Does Allah look like an Arab, especially an Arab from Saudi Arabia and from the Quraysh stock? Let us read from ibn Sa'd, the famous biographer of Muhammad:
 
...Abu Damarah al-Madani Anas Ibn 'Iyad al-Laythi informed us; he said: Ja'far Ibn Muhammad Ibn 'Ali informed us on the authority of his father, Muhammad Ibn 'Ali ibn Husayn Ibn "Ali Ibn Abi Talib, who said: Verily the Prophet said: God divided the earth in two halves and placed (me) in the better of the two, then He divided the half in three parts, and I was in the best of them, then He chose the Arabs from among the people, then He chose the Quraysh from among the Arabs, then He chose the children of 'Abd al-Muttalib from among the Banu Hashim, then he chose me from among the children of 'Abd al-Muttalib (Ibn Sa'd, Abu Abd Allah Muhammad. Kitab al-Tabaqat, vol i. Translated in English by S. Moinul Haq, Kitab Bhavan, 1784, Kalan Mahal, Daraya Ganj, New Delhi, India, 1972, p1.2).
According to ibn Sa'd, Allah favours Arab racism prophet is to be of Quraysh stock and of white complexion (ibid, p1. 95-96).
 
Here is a hadith from Sahih Muslim which declares Allah's special love for the white Quraysh Arabs.
 
Book 020, Number 4483
 
It has been narrated on the authority of Amir b. Sa'd b. Abu Waqqas who said: I wrote (a letter) to Jabir b. Samura and sent it to him through my servant Nafi', asking him to inform me of something he had heard from the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him). He wrote to me (in reply): I heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say on Friday evening, the day on which al-Aslami was stoned to death (for committing adultery): The Islamic religion will continue until the Hour has been established, or you have been ruled over by twelve Caliphs, all of them being from the Quraish. also heard him say: A small force of the Muslims will capture the white palace, the police of the Persian Emperor or his descendants. I also heard him say: Before the Day of Judgment there will appear (a number of) impostors. You are to guard against them. I also heard him say: When God grants wealth to any one of you, he should first spend it on himself and his family (and then give it in charity to the poor). I heard him (also) say: I will be your forerunner at the Cistern (expecting your arrival).
FP: So Arabs must rule the world?
 
Kasem: Yes. The ultimate goal of the Islamists is the creation of a Pan Islamic world, which must be ruled by a caliph (the Islamists call it the Khilafat movement) who will be responsible to enforce Islamic laws (Sharia) globally.
 
FP: What are the requirements to be a caliph?
 
Kasem: According to Islamic law, (Reliance of the Traveller, published by Amana Publications, Bettsville, Maryland, 1999, pp.640-642, law number o25.3) the mandatory qualifications of an Islamic caliph are:
 
1. must be a Muslim
2. must be a male
3. must be from the Quraysh tribe of the Arabs
4. must be a freeman (i.e., not a slave)
5. must be of sound mind.
This provision of Islamic law means that the world the Pan Islamic world must be ruled by an Arab (from the Quraysh stock, probably from Saudi Arabia or Jordan) and no one else.
 
FP: All this racism must involve rules about marriage I assume.
 
Kasem: Of course.
 
A non-Arab Muslim cannot marry an Arab woman
 
Let us refer to another law of Sharia. This law enforces the supremacy of the white Quraysh Arabs to subjugate all people on earth to their rule. The Sharia law (ibid) cited here stipulates that no other men, even when Muslims, could marry any Arab women. In some Arab countries, this is the law and there is severe punishment if a man from another Islamic country (such as a Muslim man from Bangladesh) marries a Saudi Arabian woman. If he commits such a grave crime (marrying an Arab woman) he might be subjected to harsh punishment and immediate deportation.
 
Let us read this racist law of Allah:
 
Law m4.2 The following are not suitable matches for one another:
 
(1) A non-Arab man for an Arab woman (O: because of the hadith that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: "Allah has chosen the Arabs above others"). (ibid)
Quite akin to the Nazism of Hitler, this Islamic law firmly establishes Allah's racism. Islamic law is heavily biased to establish the supremacy of the white Arabs much like the idea of Hitler's of the pure Aryan Germans, which he deemed the most supreme race on earth.
 
Allah made the white Quraysh Arabs the best of His creation.
 
Allah is adamant that they (the Arabs) are the purest, the truest, the best and the most superior of all races.
 
FP: Some more on Allah's racism?
 
Kasem: Well, Ibn Sa'd said: Abd al-wahhab Ibn 'Ata al-'Ijli informed us on the authority of Sai'd Ibn Abi 'Aribiah, he on the authority of Qatadh: he said: It has been mentioned to us that the Prophet said: When God wants to raise a prophet He chooses the best tribe of the people and then He chooses the best man (Ibn Sa'd, p.1.8).
 
Sahih Bukhari (4.56.704) confirms that Allah has chosen the Quraysh Arabs as His agent to rule the world (Islamic Caliphate).
 
Volume 4, Book 56, Number 704:
 
Narrated Muhammad bin Jubair bin Mut'im:
That while he was with a delegation from Quraish to Muawiya, the latter heard the news that 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'As said that there would be a king from the tribe of Qahtan. On that Muawiya became angry, got up and then praised Allah as He deserved, and said, "Now then, I have heard that some men amongst you narrate things which are neither in the Holy Book, nor have been told by Allah's Apostle. Those men are the ignorant amongst you. Beware of such hopes as make the people go astray, for I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'Authority of ruling will remain with Quraish, and whoever bears hostility to them, Allah will destroy him as long as they abide by the laws of the religion.'"
 
FP: How about some historical evidence of Islam's disdain for black people?
 
Kasem: Abd. Rahman b. Awf called Bilal the son of a black woman (Tabari, vii.59).
 
Umar had a profound dislike for black people (Tabari, xii.11).
 
Tabari writes:
 

Among them, with Muawiyah b. Hudhayl, were young men of black complexion and straight hair. 'Umar turned his face away from them several times until it was said to him: "Do you have anything against these people." He said: "I am perplexed with regard to them. No Arab tribe more hateful to me than these has ever passed by me." He then let them go, but he frequently mentioned them with hatred, and people were puzzled by 'Umar's view.
The Islamic racism is alive and well even today. Even notice the recent news report of Al Qaeda calling Obama a 'house negro'.
 
FP: So what do we conclude them?
 
Kasem: Islamic racism is endemic. It emanates straight from the Qur'an, Sunna, and Sharia. It cannot be eliminated so long the Muslims are enthused by these Holy Scriptures. The Muslims of black complexion will never be equal with the white Arabs. The concept of Islamic ummah, regardless of color and ethnic origin is simply not true.

Bus driver to Ethiopian: Drink milk and you'll be white Racist remark costs Jerusalem driver his job. Egged bus company spokesman: We denounce such disgraceful behavior, which puts all of our professional drivers to shame

Yifat Reuven (Feb. 2009)

A bus driver of Arab descent was fired this week after making a racist remark at an Ethiopian security guard at the entrance to the Hebrew University's Mount Scopus campus. "Perhaps you should drink milk and be white like me," the driver told the guard, who later filed a complaint with the Egged bus company.

Slaves in Saudi Arabia

July 27, 2004

A report from a Muslim, Naeem Mohaiemen, in the Daily Star (thanks to Nicolei):

On July 15, Human Rights Watch issued a report on the condition of Foreign workers in Saudi Arabia. The revelation that "Guest Workers" are systematically abused in Saudi Arabia should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with that region's history. What a shame that it took Sarah Whitson, executive director of HRW's Middle East and North Africa Division, to finally speak the unpalatable truth. "We found men and women in conditions resembling slavery," said Whitson in the press conference announcing their findings. The report described "the pervasive abuses foreign workers endure...the abysmal and exploitative labor conditions many workers face, and the utter failure of the justice system to provide redress." The real question is this -- why did the Islamic world not uncover these human rights abuses, so close to the holy city of Mecca? Based on interviews taken in Bangladesh, India and the Philippines, HRW found abysmal and exploitative labor practices, wanton rape of women workers, and beheading of guest workers accused of crimes without proper legal process. Anyone who has visited Saudi Arabia knows the racism with which ordinary Saudis treats the brown and black-skinned masses that come for Hajj. Like hundreds of Bangladeshis every year, my parents endured these indignities during their recent pilgrimage. When he returned from Mecca, my father told me, "To them, we will always be miskeen (beggar). Doesn't matter what we do, or where we come from. They see our skin and don't need to see more." If this is how pilgrims are treated, imagine how much worse is the plight of the "Guest Worker." Yet, we Muslims remain silent on these abuses -- after all the Saudis are the keepers of Islam's holiest site, so they cannot possibly be racist!

How appropriate as well that HRW used the phrase "slavery" to describe conditions inside the desert kingdom. Saudi Arabia was in fact one of the last nation-states to abolish slavery. Along with Yemen, the Saudis only abolished slavery in 1962. Prior to that, the Islamic world's experience with slavery was extremely problematic. Muslims once led the rest of the world in science, culture and human emancipation. The positive examples are numerous and often-repeated. However, the advances brought about in the early days of the Islamic Caliphate ossified, with very little innovation or re-interpretation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries....

The Muslim world is sliding backwards into medievalism, and it is time for reformers to speak openly and bravely. There is a cancer that is eating away at our soul -- a disease marked by paranoia, double standards and virulent racism. While we are in full-throated cry against abuses in Iraq and Palestine, we stay completely silent when it is Muslims who are the abusers (of both non-Muslims and Muslims).

How else to explain our outpouring of sympathy for the Bosnian genocide, but our complete silence on the ongoing genocide in Sudan? In that country's civil war between the Arab Muslim North, and the black Christian and Animist South, 2 million people have been killed to date. In a BBC profile of the hundreds of black Africans who have been raped by pro-government Janjaweed Arab militia, one victim described the attackers: "They called me Abeid (slave in Arabic)."

Shame on the Muslim world for staying silent!

France: Fears of Anti-White Racism July 20, 2006
The accidental death of a gendarme (French policeman) on the Caribbean island of Saint-Martin has plunged France into a new spasm of race-related angst after his widow claimed that youths refused to help after he was hit by a speeding motorcycle and later gloated at the death of a white.
 
With feelings already running high after the brutal murder in Paris of the young Jewish man Ilan Halimi, the events surrounding the death of 31 year-old Raphael Clin on February 12 have stoked fears of a festering anti-white hatred among the country's black and Arab populations.
 
Politicians have rushed to condemn the alleged incident, anti-racist groups have pledged to file suit in the courts, three government ministers have said they will visit the Franco-Dutch island, and President Jacques Chirac has telephoned Clin's widow Stephanie to offer his condolences.

Defending the West
[Tuesday, January 08, 2008]
...Ibn Warraq...His latest book, entitled Defending the West is a critical study of the thought of Edward Said.
...Orientalism came at the precise time when anti-Western rhetoric was at its most shrill, and was already being taught at western universities, and third-worldism was at its most popular. Jean-Paul Sartre preached that all white men were complicit in the exploitation of the Third World , and that violence against westerners was a legitimate means for colonized men to re-acquire their manhood. Said went further: "It is therefore correct that every European, in what he could say about the Orient, was consequently a racist, an imperialist, and almost totally ethnocentric." Not only, for Said, is every European a racist, but he must necessarily be so. As I have argued, Western Civilisation has been more willing to criticize itself than any other major culture. These self-administered admonishments are a far cry from Said's savage strictures, and yet they found a new generation ready to take them to heart. Berating and blaming the West, a fashionable game in the 1960s and 1970s which impressionable youth took seriously, had the results we now see when the same generation appears unwilling to defend the West against the greatest threat that it has faced since the Nazis.
When shown that Said is indeed a fraud, his friends and supporters in academia...

Arab racist sparked riot in Antwerp, say Belgians

By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in Antwerp Last Updated: 9:17PM GMT 28 Nov 2002

A former Hizbollah fighter was blamed by the Belgian authorities yesterday for inciting two days of race riots in the Flemish nationalist bastion of Antwerp.

Violence erupted in the Moroccan quarter of Belgium's second city on Tuesday night after a Muslim schoolteacher was shot dead by a Belgian neighbour.

The killer had serious psychiatric problems but the crime was instantly assumed to be a racist provocation.

Immigrant youths hurled stones at police and left a trail of shattered shop windows and wrecked cars. There were 128 arrests.

The Belgian government blamed Arab provocateurs yesterday. It turned the spotlight on Abou Jahjah, a Lebanese-born extremist and former Hizbollah fighter now known as the Malcolm X of Belgium's ethnic politics, claiming that he and his followers seized on the incident to inflame racial hatred.

Guy Verhofstadt, the prime minister, told parliament he was condidering a ban on Abou Jahjah's Antwerp-based ultra-radical group, the Arab-European League, for inciting violence, issuing threats and disturbing public order.

But Abou Jahjah said he was being demonised by manipulators in the Belgian government and the "Zionist lobby".

He said: "It's the complete opposite of the truth. We were trying to calm things down after a known racist murdered a Muslim. Now suddenly the victims are being turned into the criminals."

Handsome and smooth-talking, Abou Jahjah advocates a form of separatist apartheid for Belgium's 400,000 Muslims, demanding segregated schools, an end to "Flemish cultural terrorism" and recognition of Arabic as a fourth official language after Dutch, French and German...

Muslim leaders who promote multicultural integration are denounced as "false foreigners" serving the interests of the Belgian "political apparatus".

His latest stunt is to send out patrols of black-suited youths to shadow the Antwerp police, whom they accuse of persecuting Moroccan youths by calling them "white apes", and subjecting them to repeated ID checks. They say police have been infiltrated by the Right-wing Vlaams Blok movement. This month 20 Antwerp officers were sacked for Right-wing sympathies.

But Abou Jahjah's menacing "black suits" have fallen foul of a law banning private militia groups, passed in 1934 to stop patrols by the neo-fascist Flemish Militant Order.

Many of Antwerp's North Africans are Berbers who have no truck with his pan-Arab vision. Most Turkish immigrants are far less militant.

Belgian security services are more worried about the Islamic underground. A leaked report this summer concluded that Belgium had become a "logistical support base" for terrorist groups, including al-Qa'eda, the Algerian Armed Islamic Groups and the Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood.

At least 30 mosques were recruiting centres for movements that posed "an immediate, grave and specific risk to the survival of our democratic and constitutional order".

More than 30,000 Muslim immigrants have settled in Antwerp's old city. Many live a stone's throw from 12,000 Orthodox Jews in the old Jootsewijk, near the diamond district.

Moroccan gangs have been preying on Hassidic children as they walk to school, forcing those identifiable as Jewish to move around with escorts.

In Yemen, there is a minority of people with dark complexion called al-Akhdam. Historically speaking, their presence in Yemen has been a result of the Ethiopian pre- Islam invasion in 525 BC. Settling down in Yemen and throughout the years have adapted a life style in which they practice many trades especially folklore dancing, handicrafts, cleaning and some other free trades. Unofficial statistics show that the population of this minority reaches 500,000 inhabitants living in Sana'a, Shabowa, Lahj, Abyan, Aden and al-Hudaida... they complain from the harassment that al-Akhdam females suffer by the local men who find weddings an opportunity to do so with pretty dancers or singers. Demographic distribution of al-Akhdam in the suburbs is defined according to the tribes. For every tribe has its own Akhdam group of men and women. This group knows its limits and can not cross the red lines between them and the tribe they are living with. In the cities this trend is almost extinct because in most weddings al-Akhdam's artistic services have been substituted with that of the locals, by this depriving the Akhdam of one source of income. Recently, al-Akhdams have started to become relatively politically active, and in the democratic environment and multi-party system, they have decided to form a political party of their own calling it "Free Blacks Society" whose sole intention is to defend their rights and demand their needs to be fulfilled enhancing by that their living.

UN COMMITTEE ON THE ELIMINATION OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, Yemen, 2006
The Committee is deeply concerned at the persistent reports of de facto discrimination against descent-based, culturally distinct communities, among others, the Al-Akhdam. The Committee is particularly concerned about discrimination that interferes with or impairs the enjoyment of their economic, social and cultural rights (arts. 2 (2) and 5). In light of its general recommendation 29, the Committee recommends that the State party develop and put into action a national strategy with the participation of members of affected communities, including special measures to be adopted in accordance with article 2 (2) of the Convention, in order to eliminate discrimination against members of marginalized and vulnerable descent-based groups. In particular, the Committee recommends that the State party develop legislation and practice prohibiting all discriminatory practices based on descent in employment, housing and so as to ensure equal access to health care and social security services for members of affected communities, in particular the Al-Akhdam.

racial discrimination in the Arab world ... Yemeni paper Al-Tagheer ...the paper had space to tackle another serious social ill in Yemeni society: racial discrimination. The celebrated Yemeni poet Ali Al-Maquarri warned that Yemen's blacks, pejoratively called Al-Akhdam (servants), are ill- treated and suffer a fate far worse than slavery and that they have to contend with systematic racial discrimination. His novel "Black tastes, black odours", was received with much critical acclaim in his native Yemen and elsewhere in the Arab world. Al-Maquarri's views, the paper said, will hopefully prompt others -- media workers, writers and human rights activists -- in the Arab world to be more sensitised to the cause of blacks.

South Asian workers in Saudi
Rabiya Parekh 4 Apr 06, 03:51 PM Abdullah Al Mutairi has spoken out against an issue which seems to be prevalent in a lot of Middle Eastern countries, but is seldom talked about.
Sunny Hundal writing in Pickled Politics came across his article recently about the poor treatment of migrant workers in the Middle East.
Every year Indians, Pakistanis and other workers from the Indian Sub Continent flock to countries like Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia for work as servants and labourers.
But many are treated poorly by their employers in their host countries. According the Abdullah there is a distinct lack of respect for these workers, who often do the jobs that many people don't like to do themselves.
But the prospect of a steady income and the need to provide for their families in South Asia keeps them there, putting up with bad treatment and poor labour rights.
We really want to hear from people who have family members working out in the Middle East, and in partcular an honest insight to how workers are treated from those who live there.
Why is the treatment of foreign workers so bad in the MIddle East? What is behind it? Have you ever worked there?

Saudi Arabia's legalised racism
A foreign female university professor "let's call her Hala" teaches in Saudi Arabia. Her elderly parents come to visit - they go for a pilgrimage in the holy sites, then stay a few weeks at their daughter's.
As Hala goes to the visa office to request a 2-week extension for her mother, the officer in charge tells her it's okay and she needn't worry about it, her mother can stay these extra two weeks, no trouble at all.
As the mother goes to the airport, two weeks past her visa " well, it's not okay. They let the old woman through but confiscate her daughter's passport (which is illegal, since she technically commited no crime, but since when did that matter in this country?)
The Saudi visa officer denies any involvement and refuses to even talk to Hala, who is consequently sentenced to a 10,000 SAR (3000 USD) fine and deportation. Deportation. No legal grounds are provided for this decision - there wasn't even a trial or anything. Just arbitrary. The officer in charge was probably upset of her being a single working female -- too much for his narrow intellect to fathom.
Only, she's a good professor, and her university intervenes " not because they care for her, but because they need to keep her.

So, after 18 months - during which her passport remained confiscated and she had to stay in the country - the deportation sentence is lifted; the fine remains.
Poor Hala, unwilling to spend another summer vacation locked inside the country, decides to stop challenging the sentence and pay her unjust fine. The Saudi legal system is so biased against foreigners that fighting it can only lead to a worsening of one's case.
And this was Hala vs. the State: had it been Hala vs. citizen alpha, she'd probably be in jail on a bogus charge or something.
This is what Saudi Arabia is all about: extorting foreign labour, sucking them dry, then pissing over them

The current witch hunt, aimed mostly at Indian and Africans, appears to be a symptom of the racism inherent in the Arab culture. For centuries, Arabs traded in African slaves, and such slavery continues today, with both African women and Slavic women from the former Soviet Union being forced into prostitution.

Saudi Arabia: Asian immigrant forced to clean mosques for 'skipping prayers' Riyadh, 18 Nov. (2008) (AKI) - A Saudi civil court has ordered an Asian immigrant to clean mosques next month during this year's Hajj pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca after religious police caught him skipping Friday prayers several times, Saudi daily al-Watan reports. The man will have to clean five mosques along the highway into Mecca twice daily for eleven days, the court ruled...
Earlier this month, a judge ordered a young man to memorise part of the Koran and 40 sayings of the Prophet Mohammed as a punishment for appearing in public with a woman who was not a relative. [...]
The Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is an obligation for all able-bodied Muslims to attend at least once during their lives, provided they can afford it.

THE ROVING EYE
Dubai lives the post-oil Arab dream
By Pepe Escobar
Jun 7, 2006
DUBAI - Welcome to the ultimate sociopolitical model for the 21st century: a Blade Runner-esque melting pot of neo-liberalism and "subterranean" economy, Sunni Arab Islam and low taxes, souks and artificial islands, a giant warehouse and a tourist paradise, life in the fast lane and post-modern slavery. The model spells out an apolitical, consumer-mad, citizenship-free society.
[...]
It's fair to argue what distinguishes a citizen from a non-citizen in a state where there's no democracy at all. The power of Dubai's absolute ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, could be defined as Genghis Khan-like. But if you're an immigrant coming from Iran's theocratic nationalism, India's bureaucratic nightmare or Pakistan's barely disguised dictatorship, the last thing you'll want is an interventionist state. So Deng Xiaoping's dictum - "to get rich is glorious" - ultimately prevails. Lee Kwan Yew applied it in Singapore - and it worked marvels.
Racism in Dubai - as in the US south - is pervasive, but off-limits to discussion, even as the fragile social pact between citizens and foreign residents, which in essence means "shut up and do your job", is faltering. A 15% minority could not possibly impose either its language or religion on a cosmopolitan majority - especially when religion is the Wahhabi interpretation of Islam. Thus (Western and Arab) men can get drunk in licensed bars, pubs and restaurants and (Western only) women can wear bikinis on the beach.
[...]
Meet the slaves The social pyramid in Dubai is unforgiving. At the base is the average construction worker, inevitably South Asian, either Pakistani or Indian. He's invisible. But he and his fellow workers now comprise an astonishing 80% of the UAE's population. Human Rights Watch has repeatedly complained that this archetypal construction worker is never treated like a human being. But the UAE power structure couldn't care less.
He works a minimum of 12 hours a day in up to 50 degrees, with a half-hour break, six days a week, and earns no more than $150 a month. He lives in a camp, four and sometimes as many as 12 to a 15-square-meter room lost in the dreary al-Quoz industrial suburb. On his day off, exhausted, he watches Bollywood video discs and catches up with news from home in the Deira souk. One night at the Emirates Towers (in a standard room) would consume five months of his salary. He can only come back home to see his family - which gets an average of 50% of his monthly salary - once every two years. If he's really lucky - or an elderly expat, a former skilled worker - he may eke out a comfortable living as a taxi driver.
He has no rights. Trade unions are banned. If he speaks up, he's instantly deported. Or, in desperation, he may follow the path of thousands who escaped to massive slums crammed with illegal immigrants in neighboring Sharjah. If she's a woman and works as a maid or in a hotel, she can be sexually harassed - and there will be no recourse.
Dozens of construction workers died in 2005. Most of these Spidermen of the Gulf simply fell from the huge new towers, as slings and ropes are not exactly high-tech. A worker died of suffocation in Palm Jumeirah, where the local press discovered that many were being fed half a lemon a day working in 45-degree heat. An array of dodgy companies is addicted to delaying payment of salaries - or not paying at all - as well as confiscating passports.
Slightly better off than the South Asians are the Filipinos, some other Southeast Asians and some Eastern Europeans serving - or playing - in bars, restaurants, hotels, the whole tourist, fun-in-the-sun industry.
Well-paid (and white) Westerners - more than 100,000 - live lavishly as engineers, surveyors, managers, analysts, teachers. The overwhelming majority are Anglos - British, Irish, South Africans, Australians. Every major Western and Japanese IT and audio-video giant, as well as every major financial-services company, is based in Dubai.
But there are many constraints even for the well off. If you are a non-UAE national, you can only buy land in designated "free zones". Foreign companies can only operate by paying a UAE kafeel (sponsor, guarantor) to be their local representative (it is a kafeel who also monopolizes the "import" of foreign workers). Only UAE nationals can work for the government. And education and health care are free only for UAE nationals - certainly not for the South Asians.
Finally, at the top of the pyramid is the al-Maktoum family and its associates, controlling and investing the well of cash derived from oil, exercising total political and social control and building the futuristic version of Arabia based on trade and finance.

Cases of abuse rise for Saudi foreign help... An Indonesian activist protested last month outside Saudi Arabia's embassy in Jakarta against attacks on four Indonesian maids in a Saudi household in which two women died.
http://www.csmonitor.com/2007/0906/p07s02-wome.html

The Will of Allah: Torture Non Arabs to Death Written by Abu Taleb Thursday, 01 May 2008 Question from the editor: Should Australia maintain any diplomatic links with Saudi Arabia?

I recently posted a comment about the crime against foreign workers in the "holy land" and "Allah's house", that is to say in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I decided to search for more news on the net via Google. There, on the top of the list of the first search result, it said in the Indonesia language "TKW Disiksa Sampai Mati, Dubes Arab Saudi Bilang Takdir", or in English "Foreign Female Workers Were Tortured to Death, Saudi ambassador Said It Was Her Destiny" which made my blood boil.

The article said that a female Indonesian worker who had worked as a housemaid in Saudi, had been tortured to death by her employer. Then when the case was presented to the Saudi ambassador in Indonesia, the ambassador said that it was the will of Allah, with no apology given. It is also quite probable that the poor victim did not receive all her salary during her employment or perhaps got no salary at all, judging from the cruelty of the criminal and the accomplice, that is to say, the Saudi ambassador. So it is likely it was not only a case of murder and torture it was also a case of robbery.

Similar cases have been going on in Saudi (and other Gulf countries) for decades since 1980s or even before that, all without any proper response from the Saudi government. In fact they are hiding the crime. Some numbers of crimes are available through NGOs, but I think they are just the tip of the iceberg. During a visit to the Indonesian embassy in Riyadh some years ago, I overheard a woman complain about her enslavement by her employer. I asked an embassy staff member about it and he said that similar cases were quite common. These women were the ones who could come to the embassy or consulates (there were 2 consulates) because they had to renew their visa every 2 years (I don't know if this visa regulation still applies or not).

Indonesian Maids Returning Home from Saudi Arabia

How many, however, don't have any chance to report the their cases? There must be plenty, because there are hundreds of thousands Indonesian female workers in Saudi. The embassy has a place for the runaway women who cannot stand enslavement any more. They risk their lives by being alone outside because many wannabe rapists can be found easily among these sex crazed Islamic believers. The luckiest can escape and reach the embassy and meet with the good guys. The not so lucky women are picked on by the police and sent to jail where they may stay behind bars for years without any trial. Some prisons are full of these women. The most unlucky women are raped, robbed and killed by bandits. Or, sold to brothels to become sex slaves (yes, there are brothels in Saudi, in Mekkah too)

A few years ago, there was an article which said there were 15-20 babies born per month from the female workers. The data came from the arrival and departure information statistics at Jakarta's airport. Most likely, these women have been raped by their employers. These women may have come from other countries like Malaysia, but certainly the Saudi employers were responsible for the babies. And the numbers did not include those who had miscarriages.

What I am telling you is only about the Indonesian workers. We should add that there are many crimes against workers from other countries. Imagine the scale of the crime committed for 30 years by the Muslims in a shariah country.

So, where is this Islamic ˜law' who is so perfect according to the Muslims? Is it the will of Allah that Saudis can rape, torture, enslave and murder non Saudis, including their fellow Muslims? All these crimes happen especially because of the Islamic teachings which glorify males to become sex maniacs, degrading women as sex objects, treating non Arabs as Arab's "slaves". And it also comes about because of Islamic shariah law which facilitates rapists and murderers to commit crimes without any punishment.

You can check what is really going on in Saudi in the eyes of a Saudi ...

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Arab-Awakening-and-Islamic-Revival/Martin-Kramer/e/9781412807678/

The fact that all of those entities that call themselves "Arab states" are governed by dictatorships is proof that what they stand for is wrong. These gangster-like regimes collaborate with each other in oppressing their own people, using deadly force and fear tactics while pushing hateful agendas. They delude themselves in thinking they can build free markets and vibrant economies while their people still suffer oppression and lack basic freedoms. Rather each country should abandon Arabism and look inward for a definition of itself.

Arabs should give their support to the rebuilding of Iraq (Lebanon Daily Star, March 23, 2005)

Over the past 50 years, authoritarian leaders in the region have banded together in support for each other almost blindly, despite all evidence of despotism, totalitarianism and heavy handed oppression. Although the ideal of pan-Arab unity was never realized, it seems that what has been achieved is a union of corrupt regimes. Grossly misusing the language of Arab unity, they casually dismissed the mass murders that occurred under Saddam Hussein's rule, as well as genocide in Sudan, Syrian oppression of Lebanon, and countless other tragedies. And since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, they have extended only a tepid welcome to the country's leadership, and have turned a blind eye to the insurgency that is wreaking havoc on the lives of ordinary Iraqi citizens. We must no longer allow the language of Arab unity to be so distorted...

Arabism = Racism!

Pan-Arabism and Arabization

A movement for unification among the peoples and countries of the Arab World, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Arabian Sea. It is closely connected to Arab nationalism which asserts that the Arabs constitute a single nation. Pan-Arabism is a form of nationalism and cultural nationalism.

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


Pan-Arabism & Islam

At times Pan-Arabism has tended to be secular and socialism|socialist, but often it embeds within it Islamic tradition and culture or Islamism. and has stneorongly opposed colonialism and Western countries|Western political involvement in the Arab world. Also historic Arabizing of the middle east [1] [2] and in Africa that process is still going on today [3].

Arabism and Islamism in Sayyid Qutb's Thought on Nationalism, The phenomenon of Islamic resurgence in the Arab world has been considered as a response to the "forces of secularization" [4].

There's a strong argument that Arabism was never detached from Islamism, 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." [5]. Islam is a millenarian faith in which politics and religion are inextricably bound together. Although they differ in ideological approach, secular pan-Arabists and the Islamists who now oppose them hold a common imperial outlook. This dream remains at the forefront of the social memory or imagination of the Arab-Muslim world, nurturing irredentist fantasies from Xinjiang to Spain. The terrorist attacks that have destroyed so many lives in cities far removed from its conflicts -- in New York, Madrid, London, Istanbul -- can indeed be seen as the outcome of a frustrated will-to-power fuelled by apocalyptic fantasies based on an idealized vision of a brilliant imperial past. [6]

From 'The Modern Middle East: A Reader‎' (Page 390) Islam was as much the center of Arabism as it was of Ottomanism. Yet Arabism and Ottomanism were something more than recrudescences of religious bigotry and fanaticism. [7]

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. [8].

Charles Hill : The Arab world today consists of 21 countries, all members of the League of Arab States. Few seem comfortable with their own statehood except as a means of casting a veil of international legitimacy over their own version of power politics. Some, such as Morocco, are hereditary paternalistic monarchies whose royal heads are uneasy indeed. Some are secular regimes on the national socialist model, dominated by the Ba'th Party. Still others, such as Egypt and Syria, borrowed Western constitutional forms but have never achieved legitimacy because they have not been accompanied by democratic freedoms. A look at the region as a whole reveals inauthentic "states" attempting to function within the concept of pan-Arabism (one Arab nation) within the wider body of states—members of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, where, if anywhere, the unfilled office of the caliphate resides—with a commitment to pan-Islam. All these concepts hamper the full participation of the region in the contemporary international system of states. The absence of credible political systems and the inability to participate in a world of state powers incite protests under the banner of Islam. [9]

In a March 2006 President of Syria Bashar al-Assad said that the Arabs derived their strength from two main sources, the first of which is Islam which is strongly connected with Arabism... [10] and in a June, 2008 Interview he spoke of In our society, we have the Islamic pillar and the pan-Arabism pillar [11], in an article titled: 'The Syria-Iran Alliance,' Tony Badran (inFocus Spring 2009) writes ...Today, Syrian officials, including Bashar al-Assad, routinely talk about Arabism and Islam as twin pillars of strength. The product of this amalgam can be seen in the discourse of Hezbollah, which is sponsored both by Damascus and Tehran. Hezbollah reinforces this ideological marriage by marketing its brand of "resistance" to the broader Sunni Arab world via al-Manar television and other sophisticated public relations outlets. The group's narrative of "resistance" is today the common ideological banner of the Syrian-Iranian axis. [12]

In their book: "Case Studies on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms: A World Survey" 1975, pg 88, Willem Adriaan Veenhoven, Winifred Crum Ewing write about Discrimination Case studies: After the 1860 Syrian massacres, the Christians had tried to promote an Arab nationalism, irritated the Muslims, Thanks to the theologians of Al Azhar, the two movements, antagonistic at first, fused into Islamic pan-arabism. Today it is clear that Islam and Arabism, are inseparable terms and that in fact, pan-arabism is synonymous with the cultural social and political rebirth of Islam... a true Arab must be Muslim. As long as modern Egypt will proclaim itself to be "essentially an Arab and Muslim land" uncertainty will continue to weigh on the Copts, the only remaining native religious minority after the forced departure of eighty thousand Jews. When Nasser came to power, Egypt resolutely turned its face towards Arabism ...became its staunchest champion and Cairo proclaimed Islamic unity pursued an active policy of pan-arabism which identified Islam with Arabism. The Precarious situation of the minorities became even ore acute. Was it possible to be a Christian and an Arab? [13].

Christians of Egypt's Rafik Farag, M.D analysys: In modern times, President Nasser (1954-1970) stimulated the growth of "pan-Arabism," and with it the awareness of Islam as a possible way of reuniting what history had put asunder. He saw the failure of pan-Arabism resulting not from Islamic principles as the marriage between politics and religion but from foreign intervention. The problem which the Nasserites experienced with their ideology simply restates the problem with its marginality. The Saudis who saw pan-Arabism as a great movement toward the restoration of one Islamic nation (Caliphate) and the Egyptian, whom he wished to accept this idea, were too far apart. Saddam Hussein saw pan-Arabism as a way to build an Arab empire and Muammar Kadahfy of Libya used it to dominate the Middle East. [14].

Africans write about headship of AU, Libya's strongman Muammar Gadhafi's championing pan-Arabism and pan-Islamism [15] "aggressive spread of Islam through Arabism", that 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 [16].

Dr. Opoku Agyeman: 'Islam is a core ingredient of Pan-Arabism', the utility of Islam, from the first, was seen to lie in its potential as a weapon for indoctrination, domination and, thereby, the augmentation of Arab power around the globe. [17].

An 'Arabist'

An Arabist can be referred to 1) someone that is well knowledgeable of Arab culture and nationality. But can also be referred to a radical nationalist anti non-Arab or 2) a 'fanatical' supporter of Arabism's wars, dictatorship and bigoted policies.

Arabists control over institutions, policy, not only in Britain Arabists dominate the Foreign office [18], but even in the US, in the book: 'Arabists': The Romance of an American Elite by Robert D. Kaplan Blending history, reportage and sharp profiles of key players, this insightful study tells how American "Arabists"-- diplomats, intelligence agents, scholar-adventurers, Protestant missionaries, military attaches--formed an elitist, expatriate professional caste in the 19th-century Middle East. The Arabists, in Kaplan's ( Balkan Ghosts ) view, carried on a "romance" with exotic Islamic cultures, and many supported pan-Arab nationalism. Blind to what Kaplan deems the inevitability of the birth of Israel in the aftermath of the Holocaust, American Arabists today often see Israel "in only the simplest stereotype," he asserts. Kaplan charges that Arabists adapted to and promoted the Bush administration's appeasement of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, as exemplified by U.S. ambassador April Glaspie's wooing of Saddam right up to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. Occupational hazards facing the latest crop of Arabists, warns Kaplan, include rampant shallowness, careerism and an insular, sterile embassy life divorced from local realities. [19]

Arabists, Pro-Arab Sympathisers, Arabists in government do not have names like Hamadi or Abdullah. No, they have names like Hendrikson and Smith and they work diligently for the government of America - except when they don't. When they don't, they work first for themselves and then for their Arab connections. They may be in the White House, the State Dept. and the Intelligence Agencies on orders from any of the above. Then there are corporations who have leases on Arab oil land, contracts, shipping lines, and these executives are plugged into the highest offices of government. They can be generally defined as either motivated by money or as Arabists: meaning they ideologically agree with Arab orders. (Recall how the multinational oil companies accepted orders from Saudi Arabia during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. The orders were to cease delivering oil to American civilian and military depots. These American based corporations followed the Saudi orders and cut off supply. The 'Arabists' in their zeal to assist their friends for the money it brings, American Arabists have become accessories to terrorist murders. If former Presidents, Vice Presidents, Secretaries of State and Defense and State Department officials have been part of the growth of terror, then they must go to prison.[20], examples: Jimmy Carter and James Baker, both outspoken Arabists. [21]

Laurent Murawiec, a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute and the author of the new book Princes of Darkness: The Saudi Assault on the West... I'd say: "Sir, Mr. President, judge people according to their deeds, not to their sugary words." I'd also advise that a lot of heads that having talking the Saudis up, at the State Department, the CIA especially - the "we-love-the-Sunni-dictators-and-despots-forever-because-they-deliver-stability" school of the three monkeys who see, hear and say no evil - should roll. The 'Arabists' have controlled US policy in the Middle East - and not the Likud! As every cretin, every liar and every falsifier repeats endlessly - for too long. [22]

Many have raised concern over Clinton's Arab money Connections, The royal family of Saudi Arabia gave the (Bill) Clinton facility in Little Rock. [23] [24] [25]


Ambitious and "busy" Saudi Arab Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal to influence the west One of the world's riches men, has supported, donated for Jihad - terror 'suicide bombers' families, As a phenomenon of 'Radical Arabs Seek Influence Over U.S. Media' [26] acuqired major chunks of news media corporations like CNN, AOL (which was partially "explained" for charges of AOL bias [27]), even some of FOXnews [28] [29][30][31] [32], has pushed Georgetown University towards appeasing Radical Islam [33], attempted to bribe former NYC mayor Rudi Giuliani after the 911 attacks by the 19 Arab Muslim hijackers (who were mostly from Saudi Arabia) that he (ironically) "denounces"... Israel, which Giuliani turned down [34]. He bankrolls the Arabist 'anti-Israel' organization 'Middle East Policy Council' (MEPC) by Chas Freeman.[35], has donated at least $5 million to the Carter Center [36].

In accordance with Arabism's intolerance, It is not without reason that both outspoken Arabists: Jimmy Carter & James Baker have had cases of anti semitic (anti Jewish) outbusrt.

Jimmy Carter

In an article titled: 'Jimmy Carter and the Arab Lobby' J. Laksin writes about his deep ties with Arabs and oppressive Arab regimes like Saudi Arabia, Especially lucrative have been Carter's ties to Saudi Arabia. Before his death in 2005, King Fahd was a longtime contributor to the Carter Center and on more than one occasion contributed million-dollar donations. In 1993 alone, the king presented Carter with a gift of $7.6 million. And the king was not the only Saudi royal to commit funds to Carter's cause. As of 2005, the king's high-living nephew, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, has donated at least $5 million to the Carter Center. Meanwhile the Saudi Fund for Development, the kingdom's leading loan organization, turns up repeatedly on the center's list of supporters. Carter has also found moneyed allies in the Bin Laden family, and in 2000 he secured a promise from ten of Osama bin Laden's brothers for a $1 million contribution to his center. To be sure, there is no evidence that the Bin Ladens maintain any contact with their terrorist relation. But applying Carter's own standard, his extensive contacts with the Saudi elite must make his views on the Middle East suspect. [37], To see Jimmy Carter's true allegiances, just follow the money. [38]

Deborah Lipstadt writes about "Jimmy Carter's Jewish Problem", Carter has repeatedly fallen back on traditional anti-Semitic canards. [39]

In one of his hateful outbursts, he "complained" that there are "Too many Jews" on Holocaust Council. [40] [41] [42]

James Baker

Described as: 'anti-Semitic institutional Arabist' [43], Quotable quote no 1: "Don't worry, Jews remember the Holocaust, but they forget insults as soon as they smell cash." Quotable quote No 2: "F-ck the Jews, they didn't vote for us anyway." [44].

Baker was also the one who during the first Gulf war told Israel to simply suck it up for the greater good and take Iraq's Scud attacks without responding [45] [46]

Some have pointed out that: He founded the military of the modern Islamic terrorism in 80s in Afghanistan. He along with fellow Arabist Brezenski armed the Afghans at the behest of his Wahhabi friends [47]

Obama's administration's initial pick for former ambassador to Saudi Arabia Charles W. (Chas) Freeman to head the National Intelligence Agency (NIC) [48] came under fire [49] for ties to brutal regimes : China [50] & Saudi Arabia [51] Mr. Freeman has viewed the Middle East through the prism of one of Foggy Bottom's most successful Arabists. He justifies Arab enmity towards us [52], has been critical of Israel, appears to be a "strong Arabist" [53], They noted that Freeman served on the board of the Chinese National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC), which has done business with Iran [54], Furthermore, researcher revealed Freeman's pre- and post-9/11 "business connections" with the bin Laden family, which have donated "tens of thousands of dollars a year" to the MEPC, also discovered donations to Obama's presidential campaign by Freeman's Projects International, "a company that develops international business deals." [55] though State Department Arabists rushed to defend one of their own [56], On March 11, he withdrew from the post over the criticism.[57]

The Iraq Study Group (ISG) has been analized over its (2006) version of the "road map" to guide America's policy in Iraq as a fruit of Arabists lobbyists headed by James Baker Despite an orchestrated public relations campaign that bordered on the farcical, with reverential media treatment at first, the unrealistic nature of some of the policies led to withering criticism. Brit Hume was able to conclude that the almost now completely forgotten Baker-Hamilton commission, which arrived [with] great fanfare... got so much criticism from all sides [that it] now seems to be an irrelevance. The ISG turned into a colossal dud, a missed opportunity of huge magnitude. Its failure to engage with the real dilemmas, and instead substitute a combination of wishful thinking and hostility toward Israel, was actually quite predictable. An autopsy of its decaying corpse reveals a disturbing pattern among those charged with creating and staffing the Group. While Professors Walt and Mearsheimer famously hypothesize that an "Israel Lobby" has hijacked American foreign policy, the ISG report suggests otherwise, that a far more influential lobby operates out of country well to the southeast of Israel. While the Group was charged with analyzing the situation in Iraq, some were surprised and disturbed that the focus shifted to Israel and did so in hostile way. For example, the superb Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens took note of the fact that while most of the policies towards the "players" involved in the Middle East were couched in the language of suggestions ("should") those directed at Israel were seemingly mandatory and were characterized as orders (as in "Israel must"). Phebe Marr, [58] an academic who in the past has worked for oil companies. She is on the Editorial Board of the Middle East Journal, published by the Middle East Institute (remember those leitmotifs). She is also on the Board of the Middle East Policy Council-which is another "front" organization for the Saudis. In this case, the Chairman of the Board is Chas Freeman, another former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Other Board Members include Frank Carlucci, Chairman of the aforementioned Carlyle Group and a host of executives from multi-national corporations with extensive financial ties to the Arab world. Currently, Dr. Marr resides in Qatar, where her husband has been on the faculty of the University of Qatar. The author of the ISG was reportedly the Founding Director of none other than the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy: Edward Djerejian. He is a former Ambassador to Syria, a nation that would be rewarded under the ISG plan with the return of the Golan Heights and the expulsion of the Palestinians within its borders, as they would flood Israel under the "right of return"). He is also an Arabist, a man who has a proclivity to favor Arabs. Ed Lasky (in an article titled: 'Baker's ISG: Shilling for the Saudis') asks: 'Could he have been the person who slipped in the provision requiring Israel to accept a "right of return" (which contravenes US policy and that would mean the end of Israel)?' [59], as The New York Times reported that Saudi Arabia has threatened intervention in Iraq to support Sunni Insurgents iraqupdates asks: 'Was the Saudi lobby behind some of the recommendations of the ISG?'

"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" [61].

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. [62].

Frank Gervasi: King Farouk, Egyptian nationalism soon identified itself spiritually with its Nazi and Fascist counterparts, and developed into Pan-Arabism [63]


1920's - '1930s - 1940s

Qawmiyya (qawn = nation), or pan-Arabism, grew in the 1930s into the most popular ideology in the Middle East. Fascist regimes in Italy and Germany now inspired radical nationalists, who appreciated the revisionism of the brutal regimes, entailing intolerance of minorities: Jews, Kurds, Armenians, Berbers, and others who were persecuted, eventually developed their own nationalisms. [64]

One of the Arab groups in Syria/Lebanon, was the Muslim group: Najjada (Helpers), with its 'pan-Arabism', promoted by Muhi al-Din Nasuli, a leader of the Muslim scouting movement and newspaper publisher, since at least 1933 newspapers had been printing Hitler's speeches and excerpts from Mein Kampf. Hitler and Mussolini were viewed in both Syria and Lebanon as models of strong statebuilders... Nasuli criticized "moral chaos" in public life and adopted the motto "Arabism Above All" on his newspaper's masthead, which also printed glowing accounts of German youth's support of Hitler [65]

In 'A History of Fascism, 1914-1945' - by Stanley G. Payne, page 515 he writes: Some of the new nationalist regimes which developed in the Middle East during the second half of the century exhibited more of the characteristics of fascism than those of any other part of the world. A first example was the Egyptian regime under Nasser, with its Fuhrerprinzip... Libyan dictatorship of Muammar al-Gadhafi a fanatical Muslim... "Brother Colonel" has renounced capitalism, preaching pan-Arabism and a form of "Arab socialism" while his interest in militarism, violence. [66]

During the 1930s Pan-Arabists developed proto-fascist organizations such as the 'al-Muthanna Club' and its al-Futuwwa movement [67] [68], (Iraqi) Futuwa ideologue, envisioning the "Arab nation" as eventually covering half the globe (though by conversion...). [69], A number of ex-Sharifians incorporated Pan-Arabism into the platforms of clique-based political parties, such as Yasin ... in the al-Muthanna Club, whose members, heavily influenced by European fascism, formed the core of new radicals for the civilian-military Pan-Arab coalition led by Yunis al-Sab'awi and Salah al-Din al-Sabbagh. [70], From the book: 'The modern history of Iraq' (Phebe Marr - 2003) p. 52: Pan-Arab sentiments were strongly influenced by German ideas of nationalism and were encouraged by Fritz Grobba, German (Nazi) minister in Baghdad until 1939 [71].

The Muslim Brotherhood, Nazis and Al-Qaeda, The Arab Nazis had much in common with the new Nazi doctrines. [72] The roots of the Muslim Brotherhood and, in many ways, the Nazi-Muslim axis go back to the organisation's formation in Egypt in 1928. Marking the start of modern political "Islamic fundamentalism," the Brotherhood from the outset envisioned a time when an Islamic state would prevail in Egypt and other Arab countries. The growth of the Muslim Brotherhood coincided with the rise of fascist movements in Europe - a parallel noted by Muhammad Sa'id al-'Ashmawy, former chief justice of Egypt's High Criminal Court, who decried "the perversion of Islam" and "the fascistic ideology" that infuses the world view of the Brothers.

Youssef Nada, current board chairman of Al Taqwa, had joined the armed branch of the Muslim Brotherhood as a young man in Egypt during World War II. Nada and several of his cohorts in the Sunni Muslim fraternity were recruited by German military intelligence. Hassan al-Banna, the Egyptian schoolteacher who founded the Muslim Brotherhood, also collaborated with spies of the Third Reich. [73], When Egypt and Syria established diplomatic relations with the communist government, Bonn decided to welcome Syrian and Egyptian political refugees. Often, these dissidents were Islamists. Many members of the Muslim Brotherhood were already familiar with Germany. Several had cooperated with the Nazis before and during World War II. Some had even, reportedly, fought in the infamous Bosnian Handschar division of the Schutzstaffel (SS).] [74]

An analyst: 'From Hitler to the "Arab Reich"', Members of the Muslim Brotherhood would often say prayers for an Axis victory during their meetings. During the 1930s, the Third Reich had received entreaties from the Arab world. After the Nazi government promulgated the Nuremberg Laws in 1936, which greatly diminished the legal citizenship status of Jews, telegrams of support were sent to Hitler from all over the Arab and Islamic world. Many Arab nationalists looked to Germany for inspiration during the 1930s and 1940s and saw National Socialism as a viable model for state build­ing. Hitler's Mein Kamph found a receptive readership in parts of the Arabic world. Many aspiring Arab leaders sought to emulate the German fuehrer and his National Socialist movement. As far back as 1933, Arab nationalists in Syria and Iraq embraced National Socialism. In Egypt, a protofascist organization, Young Egypt, also known as the Green Shirts, attracted many army officers, The grand mufti is believed to have been instrumental in the group's formation. Members of the Green Shirts, including young lieutenant colonel and future Egyptian president Anwar Sadat (Anwar Saadat), along with Wing Commander Hassan Ibrahim and General Aziz al-Masri, attempted to execute a scheme in World War II in which they would link up with Rommel's Afrika Korps and supply them with secret information on British strategy and troop movements, the Nazis with the help of the Palestinians also were to exterminate half a million Jews in what is now Israel plus all Jews in Tunisia and Syria, in 1942, the Nazis created a special "Einsatzgruppe," a mobile SS death squad, which was to carry out the mass slaughter similar to the way they operated in eastern Europe. Although hopes of a pan-German and pan-Arab alliance would be dashed with the defeat of Rommel, his early military successes gained admiration from the Arab population, this endured after the war. [75]

From 'Metapolitics: From Wagner and the German Romantics to Hitler': One major source (one among many) for Arab nationalists is their study of Germans, especially Fichte (1767-1814) [76] (Page xxiii) and Herder (1744-1803) , by founders of the Baath parties (Iraq, Syria) and of Arab anti-Westernism. For example, Sati al-Husri, father of pan-Arabism in the 1920s, was a devoted Fichte scholar. So was Sami al-Jundi, a founder of the Baath, who likewise admired Fichte and Hitler and misunderstood Nietzsche: "We were racists, admiring Nazism, reading its books and the sources of its thoughts, particularly Nietzsche ... Fichte, and [Houston Stewart] Chamberlain's Foundations of the Nineteenth Century, which revolves on race." Earlier Arab xenophobes like Wahhab (1703-1791), ... Current Arab racism and lawless terror are 'import' from Germany [77]

Sami al-Jundi, who helped found the Syrian Baath Party in the 1930s: 'We were racists, admiring Nazism'. [78]

Among many Arabs, the Holocaust has come to be regarded with nostalgia. On August 17, 1956, the French newspaper Le Monde quoted the government-controlled Damascus daily Al-Manar as observing, "One should not forget that, in contrast to Europe Hitler occupied an honored place in the Arab world.... [Journalists] are mistaken if they think that by calling Nasser Hitler, they are hurting us. On the contrary, his name makes us proud. Long live Hitler, the Nazi who struck at the heart of our enemies. Long live the Hitler [ie, Nasser] of the Arab world." [79]

From History channel's "Saddam and the Third Reich" Few people realize that the Baath party was actually formed upon the principles and organizational structure of the Nazi party. Iraq, because of its oil and hatred of Jews, was an important battleground between the Axis and Allied powers in World War II. Nazi propaganda was broadcast throughout Baghdad, and Iraqis often went on rampages against Jews throughout the war. One of the most ardent Nazi supporters during WWII was named Khairallah Talfah. Talfah was Saddam's uncle. After the war, many of the key Iraqi Nazi supporters, all of whom evaded prosecution, wound up involved in Saddam's rise to power. This special examines the key individuals of the Iraqi-Nazi connection, the little-known battle for Iraq in WWII, and the strange link to Saddam Hussein. [80] [81]

Book: 'Nazi Penetration, 1924-1942; Pan-Arabism, 1939-Today', pan Arabism & Abdul Nasser's anti-Israel policies. [82]

A commentator: There are three European-influenced movements that I've found in modern Islamic thought; Pan-Arabism - the notion of the 'Arab People' as one nation; the Palestinian movement; and the Muslim Brotherhood, and it's descendents down to Al Ida. [83]

In a title: 'Totalitarianism in the Islamic world, the influence of Nazi Germany', an analyst writes that in the 1930s the rise of National Socialism in Germany attracted the attention of numerous Arab intellectuals and political figures who sought to free the Middle East from British and French colonial rule. Nazi Germany represented to Arab nationalists (sometimes referred to as "Arabists") a world-class power and potential ally to have in fighting against Great Britain and France... To many Arab leaders and thinkers, cultivating an Arab national spirit was a prerequisite to throwing off the shackles of European imperialism. [84]

Abdul Rahman al-Rashed, the general manager of the all-news Arab satellite channel Al Arabiya said: The sort of Sunni Arab supremacism came from the 1930s on, with some Arab Nationalists adopting the European Fascist mentality of exclusivity. Nazism, tragically, had much influence on Arab intellectuals. [85]

Magdi Cristiano Allam: Around the mid-1970s the Arab exam in civic education taken in both state and public schools in Egypt defined Arab identity thus: "the Arabs are a nation united by race, blood, history, geography, religion and destiny." This was a falsification of an historical truth based on ethno-religious pluralism, an ideological deception aimed at erasing all differences and promoting the theory of one race overlapping with a phantom Arab nation in thrall to unchallengeable leaders. It was directly inspired by Nazi and fascist theories of racial purity and supremacy which appealed to the leadership and ideologues of pan-Arabism and Islamism. It is no wonder that in this context Manichean Israel is perceived as a foreign body to be rejected, a cancer produced by American imperialism to divide and subjugate the Arab world.

The historical truth is that the Middle Eastern peoples, in spite of their arabisation and islamisation from the 7th century onward, continued to maintain a specific identity reflecting their indigenous and millenarian ethnic roots - cultural, linguistic, religious and national. The Berbers, for example, who constitute half the population of Morocco and a third of that of Algeria, have nothing or very little in common with the Bedouin tribes at the heart of Saudi or Jordanian society. When in 1979 Egypt was sidelined from the Arab League for signing a peace treaty with Israel President Sadat restored its Pharaonic Egyptian identity which he proudly contrasted with its Arabness. Here was an isolated but significant attempt to recapture an indigenous identity - advertising historical honesty and political liberation while saying 'enough is enough' to rampant lies and demagogy. [86]

Nazism, Fascism parallels in Arab Nationalism

Victor D. Hanson in "From Nationalism to Fascism to Terror Parallels between Germany and the Arab World by Ray Ibrahim Private Papers" explains in length the parallel of "ummah" in Arabism / Islamism (as pride in their prophet from Arabia, and a more "true" Arab is rather a Muslim-Arab) as is "volk" in Nazism and in both cases the rejection of Jews were used to "define" their Nationalism. [87]

An analyst writes: 'In Search of Truth: The Rise of Arab Nationalism, Specifically the parallels between the new Arab/Muslim nationalism and fascist German nationalism (Nazism).' As the Nazis were able to overpower the “good Germans” and forces of civility and justice in Germany via a mixture of Joseph Goebbels' propaganda, lies, terror, and playing on past hurts and weaknesses in the German character. Using the medium of radio and motion pictures, he crafted some of the most compelling propaganda theater of all time. Weaving together myths about the German Teutonic past, as well as exploiting traditional German xenophobia and anti-Semitism, he must be seen as one of the major fertilizing agents [manure] in allowing Nazism to take hold.
Similar parallels exist in modern Arab and Muslim nationalism. Arab propagandists have a rich soil for spreading their lies. There are fears in the Arab and Muslim world about being swallowed in permissive secular western culture and about loss of identity. This is coupled with a deep sense of history and awareness of the fall of the Arab/Muslim world from its dominant position to one of subservience to the West. The Arab world, like the pre-war German world, is searching for a banner and champion to restore its lost pride and identity. The Arab propagandists are also aware of historic Arab and Muslim anti-Semitism, as well as the mythology of Jihad and its usefulness in mobilizing Arab xenophobia.
[88]

Like the Nazis before them, many Baathists saw Arab nationalism as 'true' Islam. [89]

In a paper presented at the meeting of the Arab league in Amman, Jordan, in 2001, Libya's Muamar Gadhafi spelt out the Arabization agenda against Africa in language reminiscent of Adolph Hitler's Lebensraum, (Hitler's sick obsession to secure a living space for political and economic expansion in Europe) for the Germans, (the superior race). Gadhafi in his address during the Amman's Arab conference invited his Arab brothers outside of Africa to come to Africa in the following words. [90] "The third of the Arab community living outside Africa should move in with the two-thirds (about 250 million) on the continent, and join the African Union, which is the only space we have." [91]

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." [92].

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 [93].

Brian Whitaker: The race taboo, The existence of racist attitudes within Arab countries is often denied, resulting in scandalous displays of prejudice against certain ethnic groups. The Arab countries, mostly are in denial. The A to Z of ethnic and religious groups in the Middle East embraces Alawites, Armenians, Assyrians, Baha'is, Berbers, Chaldeans, Copts, Druzes, Ibadis, Ismailis, Jews, Kurds, Maronites, Sahrawis, Tuareq, Turkmen, Yazidis and Zaidis (by no means an exhaustive list), and yet serious discussion of ethnic/religious diversity and its place in society is a long-standing taboo. If the existence of non-Arab or non-Muslim groups is acknowledged at all, it is usually only to declare how wonderfully everyone gets along. [94]

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." [95]

Adel Makhoul wrote in May 1, 2005 about Pan-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 atrocities 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.[96] Michael Totten decries the tired Arab nationalist myth that Arabism protects Christians. [97]

A writer at the LATimes: While Israelism defines its borders, respectful of alternative cultures. Arabism is rogue and misinformed, it believes that all cultures must adopt its ideologies. [98]

Merging bigotry of Arabism & Islamism

The bigotry linkage of Arabism's supremacy and radical Islam, by A 'Short Critique of Islamic Fundamentalism' Around the late 1920s the Moslem [Muslim] Brotherhood was formed by Arabist thinkers racial supremacy [99].

Even though the Islamists and the Pan-Arabists had their similarities in the past (1940s - 1966), 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 represented the most violent wing of Pan-Arabism , yet, The Islamists and the Pan-Arabists tried to cooperate with one another in Egypt in those days, and there was some basis for doing so. Both movements dreamed of rescuing the Arab world from the legacies of European imperialism. Both groups dreamed of crushing Zionism and the brand-new Jewish state. Both groups dreamed of fashioning a new kind of modernity, which was not going to be liberal and freethinking in the Western style but, even so, was going to be up-to-date on economic and scientific issues. And both movements dreamed of doing all this by returning in some fashion to the glories of the Arab past. Both movements wanted to resurrect, in a modern version, the ancient Islamic caliphate of the seventh century, when the Arabs were conquering the world. [100]

The goal of the Baath party was to adapt the racist and totalitarian ideas of Europe for the Arab world -- to combine the fascism of Europe with the ethnic traditions and Islamic orientation of the Arab countries. [101]

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 [102].

The Arab-Israeli conflict is about bigotry, the same bigotry that kills Jews also kills Christians [103]

'Arab superiority', Qaddafi, Muslim Brothers and Hassan al-Turabi's life-long goal of establishing an Arabized and Islamic state in Sudan. [104] Dr Hassan Abdallah Turabi from Darfur, Sudan: We Will Islamize America and Arabize Africa The Arab-Islamic elite holds the view that it has a messianic mission to Islamize and arabize the South , in particular, and Africa, in general. The battle cry of the Arab-Islamic elite is total and comprehensive arabization and islamization of the South, and hence South becoming a stepping-stone into Africa. Our northern brothers have promised their Arabs "kinsmen", to arabized and Islamize the South. This has been the solution adopted by the ruling and non-ruling Arab-Islamic elite to the problem of diversity in the Sudan. In an interview with al-Sayyad, a weekly Lebanese magazine 1988, the Islamic ideologue, al-Turabi said: "it was our destiny that we (meaning the so-called Arabs) have been tested (perhaps, by God) with a complex structured country, almost representative of African peoples, with its languages, ethnicities, and traditions". Diversity, which sensible people would consider as a source of power and admiration, becomes, in the view of al-Turabi, a trial by God. In a lecture in one of the Gulf emirates, titled "The Future of Islam and Arabism in Sudan" (Mustagbl al-Islam wa al Arouba fi Sudan), al-Sadig al-Mahdi proposed forcible Arabization and Islamization of Southern Sudan. The implementation of this project required Ghazi Salah Atabani to shout at the SPLM/A delegation and IGAD diplomats during peace talks in 1997 that southerners "would neither get secularism nor independence" and that "the Sudan's mission was to islamize Africa".[105].
In an article "Arabization of Africa, and Its Killing Fields" Bankie F. Bankie wrote: The inquiries of the ICC into mass murder in the Borderlands creates the precedent, which changes the equation in the area. The attempted elimination of the Fur, the Masalit and the Zaghawa ethnic groups of Darfur is an exercise in ethnic cleansing, in the pursuit of demographic change, in order to Arabize Darfur. A similar project was run in south Sudan for some 39 years and is also now underway, which has received scant attention, in Nubia, northern Sudan, where millions are affected. In Nubia, the intent of Khartoum is to move the Black Nubians off their lands and to resettle them elsewhere, whilst bringing in millions of Egyptian peasants, for settlement. The purpose of all these operations is to ultimately make Sudan an Arab country, in terms of its majority population. This initiative has been on, in surges, for a millennium. Having failed to conquer south Sudan, the Arabist/Islamist global force, the same operating in Afghanistan, is moving to annex Somalia. After Somalia they will move further southwards. Some are saying they will thereafter target central Africa. Arab-led slavery of Africans in the past and in the present goes to the core of the relationship of Africans with Arabs. Joseph Lagu, the south Sudanese Anya-nya leader, on page 339 of his book 'Sudan odyssey through a state – From ruin to hope', a 2006 publication. Concerning his interaction with Col Muamar Gaddafi during an official Sudanese visit toduring an official Sudanese visit to Libya in 1975, he recounts '(Col Gaddafi) told us that other Arab leaders and he would like to develop Southern Sudan, but for that to be possible we should allow the South to be Islamised and Arabised. He said that he did not mean that we leaders should change our religion, for he knew we were already Christians. He said he referred to those without religious affiliation that formed the bulk of the population. He told us that for him to get Arab funds for the development of the South, he needed to tell the Arabs that Southern leaders accepted the Islamisation of the South. He made it clear to us that Arabs consider their aid to other people in that perspective'.
Turabi, who exercised power in the first half of current Sudan President Bashir's rule, pursued a deliberate policy of implanting Islam in north America, whilst Arabization was spearheaded in Africa, He's sent some two thousand post-graduate northern Sudanese students to the US with instructions to form friendships with African Americans. Many of these graduates are now in the public service of Sudan. As it happens, the Nation of Islam, led by Louis Farrakan in the USA, grouping Black Muslims in north America, has pursued a policy of support for the Khartoum regime, having taken material assistance from Khartoum. This, despite the facts that blacks suffer from racism, apartheid in Arabia. [106]

Activists articulate their grievances with Khartoum as a rejection of both the Islamist interpretation of Islam - the position of the current government - and the racist ideology of 'Arabism' aligned with Islam. [107]

Radical Islamism has common ideological roots with Pan Arabism. [108]

On democratization, Professor writes: Arabic, which supplanted Latin, Greek, and other languages, made the Arab-Islamic Empire possible. It not only endowed Arabs with their sense of superiority, but it also heightened their aggressive and imperialistic ambitions vis-à-vis non-Muslim nations. Accordingly, any Muslim country today whose population, like Turkey's, is non-Arab, should be induced to remove Arabic from its public law and public education and make its own native language the only official language of the state. This will simultaneously counteract pan-Arab and pan-Islamic movements as well as international terrorism. It will also facilitate democratization of Muslim countries [109]

A. N. Pasko: (March 22, 2004) ...As the discussion of "democratization" of the Middle East continues, an important point that must be made time and time again, is the importance in building structures that liberate the minorities of the region from oppression. Non-Arab and Non-Muslim minorities live throughout North Africa and the Middle East. Contrary to the propaganda that the region is Arab/Muslim, these minorities are remnants of the indigenous peoples, before the great Arab imperialist wars of the 7th century, and "Islamicization process" that followed. Non-Arab Muslims like the Kurds in Iraq, Syria, Turkey, and Iran; the Berbers - known as Amazighes - in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya, have all resisted "Arabization" for over 1,000 years. Non-Muslims like the Assyrian Christians in Iraq - who argue that they are not Arabs - the Copts in Egypt, Christian Lebanese - many who claim not to be Arab but Phoenician - the Christians in Sudan, and other Christians throughout the region, have been persecuted minorities, since the rise of Islam. Others like the Druze and Jews have also been persecuted by Arab/Muslim regimes throughout history. And we can now see, from the recent Sunni terror attacks on Shiites in Iraq - and Bin Laden's recent statements that Shiites are heretics - that even some Muslims - Shiites and other non-Sunnis - are persecuted minorities in parts of the Middle East.
Only Israel, the Jewish State, has fully liberated itself - in the political sense - from this Arab/Muslim oppression, although it still suffers from physical violence against her people...
[110]

Complaints of persecution of Berbers by Arab authorities through both exclusivities: Arabism and Islamism. [111] [112]

Bin Laden and al-Qaida loyalists were given haven in Sudan from 1991-1996 until al-Bashir expelled them under U.S. pressure. [113]


Arch Pan Arabist: Saddam Hussein & Islam

From Saddam Hussein's ideology: "Pan-Arabism has always said that Mohammed is the forefather of pan-Arabism and that Islam was spoiled when it crossed the borders of the Arab world to Iran and Turkey. The task now is to 're-animate' the real Islam that was taught by Mohammed as an Arab ideology. Especially during the Iran-Iraq war, when Iraq had to face the Iranian revolution, they loaded their own ideology with Islamic content. The Iranians and the Zionists, they said, are part of a 2,000-year-old plot to smash Iraq and divide the Arabs. `We are fighting for the real Islam' the regime said, not the kind of spoiled Islam that Iran represents. I think it was a mistake for the Americans to believe, as they did, that Iraq was a stronghold against Islam." [114], During the years of the Iran-Iraq war, (where a million people lost their lives [115][116]) Saddam tied himself to Sa'ad ibn Abi Waqas, an early Arab warrior who brought Islam to Iran. [117], pan-Arab leader like Saddam Hussein had to "brandish his religious credentials" to justify his invasion of Kuwait [118], he had Koran [Quran] written in his blood for Baghdad's "Mother of All Battles" Mosque [119], From his speech to the people of Basra "... Serving Islam and Arabism. The firm stand of jihad is the destiny of the people..." [120], he called on all Muslims to "fight the infidels", a holy war [121], many Sunni Arab Muslims & especially militant Al Qaeda revere him as a "holy Muslim man", a great "holy warrior of all", "The mujahed Saddam Hussein" [122] and held a Quran all the time during his trial. [123] he died on the gallows clutching a Quran while shouting "Allah Akbar". [124] the chorus of lamentation for Saddam consists of a few isolated figures espousing the bankrupt ideologies of pan-Arabism and Islamism. [125]

Regarding the worries of Kurds, Kurdistan in Iraq, From "The Future of Kurdistan in Iraq" (by Brendan O'Leary, John McGarry, Khaled Salih - 2006) Page 304: if it were ever to become unified, it would be under an Arabist program, with a racist agenda for Kurds and an Islamist one for non-Muslims and Muslims. [126]

At The 2006 Sixth Pan-Arab and Islamic Conference, The jihadists led by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi (ties with the 'Muslim Brotherhood' and a contributor to the 'IslamOnline' website, described as 'Theologian of Terror' [127] and as an 'Islamofascist,' enemy of the West [128], on January, 2009 on Al-Jazeera Incites Against Jews, Arab Regimes, and the U.S.; Calls on Muslims to Boycott Starbucks and Others; Says 'Oh Allah, Take This Oppressive, Jewish, Zionist Band of People... And Kill Them, Down to the Very Last One' [129] British lawmakers slammed Al Jazeera over it [130] [131]) , included Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, Hizbullah leader Hassan Hadroug and the Iraqi Sunni jihadist ideologue Sheikh Hathir al-Dari, Among the pan-Arabists was Khair al-Din Haseeb, who the US Army refers to as the "father of pan-Arab nationalism." Qaradawi announced that the goal of the conference was to merge the pan-Arab and Islamic wars against the US and Israel specifically and against the infidels generally. as he put it, "Pan-Arabism and Islam are very closely linked" [132].

One of the classical combination of pan-Arabism & pan-Islamism possessed the Mufti of Jerusalem, Husseini is a perfect manifestation of how jihadists, violent Arab nationalists and fascists collide [133], he had a pan-Arabism, pan Islamist character [134], (Jihad and) pan-Arabism in its violent form find a common root in him [135]. he influenced Arabism to continue to wage war against non-Islamic nations and peoples [136].

Though The Arab population from 1920-1930 generally reaped the benefits of Jewish immigration, and did not oppose the establishment Jewish National Home, there was one man who attempted to breathe life into a national movement: this was the Mufti, Haj Amin al Husseini. The Mufti knew that nationalist slogans alone would not succeed in uniting the masses against Zionism. He therefore turned the struggle into a religious conflict. He addressed the masses clearly, calling for a holy war. His battle cry was simple and comprehensive: "Down with the Infidels!" From the time Herbert Samuel appointed him to the position of Mufti, Haj Amin worked vigorously to raise Jerusalem's status as an Islamic holy center. He renovated the mosques on the Temple Mount, while conducting an unceasing campaign regarding the imminent Jewish "threat" to Moslem holy sites. In 1943 Amin Al-Husseini is made Prime Minister of Pan-Arab Government by Nazi regime. His headquarters are in Berlin. [137], Right after the Allied victory in El Alamein, Jerusalem's grand mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini, took to the airwaves and broadcast in Arabic from Berlin. At that time he already was "prime minister" of a pan-Arab government formed in the German capital. His foreign minister was exiled Iraqi leader Rashid Ali al-Kilani and his war minister, Fawsi al-Kaukji. [138], from Chuck Morse's book, 'The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism': The Nazi Holocaust appears to have kicked into high gear on November 25, 1941 during a Berlin meeting between the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini (1895-1974) and the Nazi Fuhrer of Germany, Adolf Hitler. At that well-documented meeting, Hitler promised al-Husseini, the "Palestinian" pan-Arab leader, that after securing a dominant military position in Europe, he would send the Wehrmacht, the Nazi war machine, on a blitzkrieg across the Caucasus and into the Arab world under the guise of liberating the Arabs from British occupation. [139], The Mufti, after instigating a pogrom against Jews in Palestine in 1920, the first such pogrom against Jews in the Arab world in hundreds of years, went on to inspire the development of pro-Nazi parties throughout the Arab world including Young Egypt, led by Gamal Abdul Nasser, and the Social Nationalist Party of Syria led by Anton Sa'ada. [140]

All minorities living within the Arab world are under siege. Tunisian human rights activist Muhammad Bechri has traced this to the "twin fascisms" - his term - that dominate the Arab world, Islamism and pan-Arabism. The first promotes murderous intolerance of religious minorities. It helps explain why Christians are under siege across the Arab world and why Sudan enjoyed broad Arab support as it killed some two million non-Muslim blacks in the south of the country. Pan-Arabism translates into endorsement of murderous policies toward Muslim but non-Arab groups and accounts for Arab support for Saddam Hussein as he slaughtered 200,000 Kurds in northern Iraq, as well as backing for Sudanese policies toward the Muslim but black population of Darfur.

The Arab world is not about to make an exception for the Jews. This broad intolerance of minorities is further evidence of how unlikely it is the Arab world will accept the legitimacy of a Jewish state in its midst any time soon. [141]

From the inaugural lecture for the Canadian Coalition for Democracies' Annual Begin-Sadat November 2006, it becomes unmistakably clear that the men who killed Sadat on October 6, 1981 were forerunners of those who flew passenger jetliners into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington on that fateful morning of September 11, 2001 unleashing a whirlwind of hatred and bigotry emanating from the deep toxic bowels of a medieval age that still clings to our world at the beginning of the twenty-first century (Thousands of suspected terrorists were rounded up and jailed, among them Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, who was later convicted of conspiring to blow up New York City landmarks, and Ayman al-Zawahiri, one of Osama bin Laden's two top lieutenants [142])... Sadat was part of the milieu that killed him, and the reason for his murder was his journey to Jerusalemseen as a betrayal of Arabism – the mix of nationalism and Islamism – of which he was a product. [143]

Arab Intellectual writes on the Worsening Situation and the exclusion of Christians almost completely from the dominant Islamic Arabism - to the point where, in some countries, Christian teachers have been banned. [144]

So writes an Assyrian as well: ...about the Arab/Muslim civilization. As an Assyrian, a non-Arab, Christian native of the Middle East, whose ancestors reach back to 5000 B.C., I wish to clarify some points you made in this little story, and to alert you to the dangers of unwittingly being drawn into the Arabist/Islamist ideology, which seeks to assimilate all cultures and religions into the Arab/Islamic fold. [...] There are minorities and nations struggling for survival in the Arab/Muslim ocean of the Middle East and Africa (Assyrians, Armenians, Coptics, Jews, southern Sudanese, Ethiopians, Nigerians...), and we must be very sensitive not to unwittingly and inadvertently support Islamic fascism and Arab Imperialism, with their attempts to wipe out all other cultures, religions and civilizations. It is incumbent upon each one of us to do our homework and research when making statements and speeches about these sensitive matters. [145]

Analysis on the conflicts in the middle east: 'Peace will prevail when economic, social and cultural rights are granted to all' ... Arabism and Islam - synonyms embodies discrimination against various ethnic and religious groups in the Middle east... Conclusion Most regimes in Middle East are authoritarian, if not dictatorships, ruling for decades by fear or reward. The elites who rule in Middle East countries used religious faith with ideology of nationalism for blinding people and controlling them ... conflicts in the Middle East all look different, but the real cause root is related to human rights abuses. [146]

In 2007 there was wide objection to the opening of the 'Arab school' KGIA in New York as it involves the inculcating pan-Arabism and radical Islam [147], as part of 'The Arabist and Islamist Baggage of Arabic Language Instruction' [148] Middlebury instructors push the idea that Arab identity trumps local identities and that respect for minority ethnic and sectarian communities betrays Arabism. [149]

Iranian pundit: Definition of Pan Arabism: Pan Arabism = Expansion of Arab Nation via unification of All Arab countries via tool of Islam as a primary step. The secondary step will be revival and recreation of the Islamic Empire. [150]

Pan-Arabism or the doctrine of Muslim Caliphate declares that all land that used to belong to Muslims must be returned to them. Including Spain, for example. [151]

Phillips: "Hamas [leadership of the Palestinians] wish to annihilate not just Israel but Europe and America and conquer the entire world for Islam (As Hamas is quoted in video), Israel's triumph in this battle with jihadi Islam and racist pan-Arabism will also benefit precisely those nations as well." [152]

At the UN

Both UN's Durban conferences (which were supposedly intended to be "against racism") were another display of the 'merging bigotry between: Arabism (Durban 2- chaired by Libya's Qaddafi) & Islamism' (Durban 2 - spearheaded by Iran's Ahmadinejad, the first statesman to speak), both dominated the conferences in a clear anti-Jewish bashing - agenda (mostly under the guise of "caring" for Arab Palestinians - while the truth is they don't [153], and defining Israel's fight for survival [154] as "racist", but "pure" anti all-Jews racism was also on display), the Durban 2 had another Islamic agenda to "criminalize" criticism of Islam.

Durban conference 1, I. Cotler: The World Conference Against Racism in Durban was originally planned as a platform to focus on the world's underrepresented human rights causes. Yet what was supposed to be a conference against racism turned into a conference of racism against Israel and the Jewish people. [155], Arab nations have ganged up to bash Israel [156] [157] (hypocritic [158] false "accusations" on pluralistic democracy, free for all state [159] [160], Israeli Arab explodes Mideast 'lies', says she discovered freedom in Jewish state "As a Middle Easterner brought up on this patent 'Israel is a racist state' propaganda, I discovered it is total hate-inspired nonsense," she said." I've seen with my own eyes what kind of society Israel is. I consider Israel to be one of the most multi-racial and multi-cultural countries in the world. There are no racial restrictions on becoming a citizen of Israel like there are in many Arab countries. Remember, Jews can't live in the neighboring Arab Kingdom of Jordan or in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia." She explained that more than 100 different countries of the world are represented in the population of Israel. "Consider how the Israeli government spent tens of millions of dollars airlifting more than 40,000 black Ethiopian Jews to Israel in 1984 and 1991," she said. "Since 2001 Israel has reached out to help others taking in non-Jewish refugees from Lebanon, the Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Vietnam, Liberia, Congo and even Bosnian Muslims. How many such refugees have the 22 states in the Arab league taken in? The Arab world won't even give Palestinian refugees citizenship in their host countries." She added that more than 1 million Arabs are full Israel citizens, that an Arab sits on the Supreme Court of Israel, that there are Arab political parties expressing views inimical to the state of Israel sitting in the Knesset, that women are equal partners in Israel and have complete human rights. "Show me an Arab nation with a Jew in its government," she challenged. "Show me an Arab country with half as many Jewish citizens as Israel has Arab citizens. I'll borrow some of your academic freedom now and say that Arab nations are the real racist and oppressive states." [161] even harsh anti-Israel Arabist Jimmy Carter admitted on CNN "I recognize that Israel is a wonderful democracy with freedom of speech and equality of treatment under the law between Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis." [162], On the hypocrisy of racist Arabs / Palestinians vs pluralistic democratic Israel, some have summed it up in one phrase: "If Arabs Can Live in Jewish Neighborhoods, Why Can't Jews Live in Arab Neighborhoods?" [163], In fact, many have raised the issue of Arabs not only being equal citizens as Jews in Israel, but often as first class citizens, Arabs, Muslims first class citizens in Israel whereas Israeli Jews are second class citizens [164], an example: Israeli Police evict Jews from Jewish-owned Hebron home As applauding Palestinian Arabs looked on [165], there are complaints of Jews who proclaim that they are sick and tired of being second-class citizens, while all Arabs in Judea and Samaria are treated like first-class citizens. [166] a professor has written about Israel's "affirmative action", quotas and preferences for Arabs [167] and that Israel already has a system in place whereby Jews are often treated as second-class citizens. [168]) and the Jews, as Arab states pressed the Durban racist strategy [169], Jews were stunned by hostility, Anti-Semitism at Durban [170] from the Arabs' hopeless xenophobic hatred [171], The Arab Lawyers Union of Egypt, distributed a booklet of violently Anti Jewish cartoons and has, since then, continued its incitement to Jew-hatred [172].

Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson: [T]he atmosphere of anti-Semitism at the NGO Forum was described as 'hateful, even racist' by former High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson. Source: U.S. House of Representatives Resolution 1361 EH, Sept. 23, 2008, I had urged the NGOs not to adopt it. But the process was democratic and they went ahead and adopted it. But I also have a democratic right to reject that declaration dealing with Israel... I think the NGO Forum, by including that text on Israel, have diminished the chances of it being adopted by the conference. I don't think it can be adopted. Source: "Israel branded 'racist' by rights forum," CNN, Sept. 2, 2001. [A]fter [an activist] showed Robinson the booklet, she stood up, waved it and said, 'This conference is aimed at achieving human dignity. My husband is a cartoonist, I love political cartoons, but when I see the racism in this cartoon booklet, of the Arab Lawyers' Union, I must say that I am a Jew - for those victims are hurting. I know that you people will not understand easily, but you are my friends, so I tell you that I am a Jew, and I will not accept this fractiousness to torpedo the conference.' Source: "Robinson in Durban: I am a Jew," The Jerusalem Post, Aug. 30, 2001. [173], racist Arab [174] and Islamic states attempted to impose an agenda declaring Palestinian victimhood at the hands of Israeli "colonialism and oppression.", French philosopher and writer Pascal Bruckner put it best when he said, "It was like a cannibal suddenly calling for vegetarianism."Australia and Canada issued statements condemning the conference's hypocrisy. The Israeli and U.S. delegations walked out [175], As a writer has put it: 'Racists cry racism at U.N. conference' [176], Under title 'Arab Racism' a writer sums up the efforts all those years where the Arab countries continued to promote the false notion as if 'Zionism is racism', defining Zionism, the national liberation movement of Jews, the victims of racism, as racism is particularly cynical, yet it seems that the Arabs have succeeded to convince the leaders of some nations, themselves victims of racism, to support this vicious accusation.[177], it was described by the late Tom Lantos, the only Holocaust survivor to serve in Congress, as "the most sickening and unabashed display of hate for Jews I had seen since the Nazi period." [178], in fact, from the Jew-Hatred in Durban, the ironic result of the UN's World Conference on Racism 2001 should have been to remind the world how little reality has changed: Israel is still David opposite the Arab world's Goliath. [179].

Durban conference 2 Learning the lesson of Arab Muslim nations hijacking the UN (2001) Durban 1 [180] conference against "racism", turning it into a platform for a racist anti Jewish, anti Israel forum, come the (2009) Durban 2 with added worries of the trivializing of the Holocaust by comparing it with hatred of Islam. [181] [182] [183] [184], Canada has said it "promotes racism" [185] and has boycotted it [186], the US has boycotted it on February 28, 2009 [187] The delegation's conclusions were that the anti-Israel and anti-Western tendencies were too deeply entrenched to excise [188], Britain and Italy Threaten to Drop Out [189], later on, Italy pulled out of the conference [190], Australia was ready to boycott Durban II [191], finally after EU has threatened to pullout too [192] EU's ultimatum to the OIC: Change your tune on Durban II or we won't attend, it issued a final ultimatum to the countries participating in Durban II: They must put a stop to their anti-Israeli agitation and their criticism of the freedom of expression. [193] it was altered and the Arab nations' put together criticism attack of Israel was dropped from Durban II draft resolution (March 17, 2009) [194]. Thomas P. Kilgannon has summed it up: in two words -- bureaucratic terrorism. The conference is dominated by the 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and is used largely as a forum to promote hatred of Israel. The gathering in Geneva is a follow-on to the World Conference Against Racism held in Durban, South Africa in 2001 [195] The Durban II was named: The U.N.'s Racist Jamboree [196] [197].

As part of exposing the hypocrisy, prior to the Durban conference, the UNWatch "turned the tables" Blasts Racism by Iran, Libya and Saudi Arabia, with a special attention on Arab Libya (which chairs the conf.) on its horrific record on human rights, racism, discrimination against minorities, including black migrants [198] 2 million black African migrants in Libya, who, as quoted in the International Herald Tribune ([199]), say they are treated like slaves and animals [200], and the fate of the Bulgarians in a libel suit. [201]

On April 19, 2009 U.S. boycotted finally the conference, says it 'singles out' Israel, it risks 'hypocritical' Israel hatred [202] & "hypocritical allegations" against Israel [203], just as more countries joined a U.S. boycott amid concerns it was developing into a platform for attacking Israel, Australia and the Netherlands were the latest to pull out, as a dispute gathered pace over a document said to single out Israel for its racism. "Germany, like several other E.U. nations, will very likely not be taking part in the conference," [204] (Canada, Israel, Italy and Sweden have already announced they are boycotting the conference aimed at creating a global blueprint for tackling discrimination). Meanwhile, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, whose past comments on the Holocaust and Israel are likely to overshadow his contributions to the debate, has reportedly confirmed his attendence [205], his attendance proved again that 'Durban II' racist‎ [206].

(Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - as Adolf Hitler World leaders (including Italy & Germany) have compared Ahmadinejad to Adolf Hitler, the world faces the same threat from, [207] [208] [209] [210] [211] [212] [213] [214] [215] a 'New Hitler' [216] Or a '2nd Hitler' [217], even in Arab media, in reactions to Iran's nuclear project, he was described as a new Hitler threatening to unleash catastrophe upon the world [218] and writers decry his 'plan' to annihilate Jews with a single push of a button, a dictator who fashions himself after Adolf Hitler with a twist of Islamic lemon [219] [220]

He also gave an ultimatum to the west: 'Convert to Islam or Die' [221] he's warned Western leaders to follow the path of Allah or "vanish from the face of the earth". [222]).

On April 20, 2009, (while there was no talk about Arab racism, nor about Iran's oppression of minorities like: Christians, Baha'i, Azeris, Baluchis, Ahwazi Arabs, etc. [223] [224]) Iran's (a country notorious for its human rights abuses, including a long history of persecution of minorities [225]) Ahmadinejad who bashed Israel [226], was jeered at the conference, the opening of a United Nations conference in Switzerland on anti-racism was marred by chaotic scenes Monday as protests and a protesting 'walkout' by delegates, especially the Europeans (he was applauded by some Arabs), Some 40 delegates stood and exited the hall amid a mixture of outraged shouts such as: "shame", Protesters interrupted him as he began to speak, shouting: "You're a racist!" [227] [228] [229] [230].

Leaders -- including the Vatican [231] and the UN chief [232] -- Condemned Ahmadinejad's 'Hate speech' tirade Attack on Israel [233] [234] [235] [236] [237] [238] [239] [240] Some decried: World witnessed Hitler's return.

Anti-Kurd

The Kurds in Syria between 2 to 2.5 million [252] 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. [253] , they've been subjected to racist Arabist policies [254] And a cry against Syria's oppression has gone out. [255].

As a wave of pan-Arabism swept the Middle East in the 1950s and 1960s, the Syrian government decided in 1962 to strip thousands of Kurds of their citizenship. The method: a census supposedly designed to root out "alien infiltrators" from Turkey. If a Kurd could not prove residency in Syria since 1945, he or she lost Syrian citizenship. ... Kurds in Syria are designated as "foreigners", The Baath Party launched an official Arabization campaign in 1963 that began to stamp out Kurdish street names, Kurdish publications, and even Kurdish personal name [256].

Kurdish writer charges that: The Arab League as a useless ideological racist Arabist institution has existed only to promote Arabism and Arab racism against colonised non-Arab nations [257].

The Strategies of the Algerian regime to subdue Kabylia: We all know the drive of the Algerian state and its Arab and Islamic allies (both inside the country and the 22 or so Arab countries) to subdue Kabyles. [269] From the 'Official request for an autonomy status for Kabylia' [June, 2008] On the Algerian State side, the Algerian regimepursues its methods, its colonialist vision and reflexes, at least against Kabylian whose identity, language and cultureare declared as subversive and are furiously fought by the young Algerian State. The latest aims to eradicate thosepermanently by adopting a policy of cultural genocide through Arabism of their School, Arabs are first-class citizens in Algeria, Amazigh in general and Kabylian more specifically are second-class citizens. They get killed, jailed, tortured, watched, are subject to provocations, insults and racket and exposed tonational and public condemnation for their refusal of Arabism and Islamism, two elements that are for the Algerian authorities, the exclusive features of the Algerian identity. [270]

Pan-Arabists "hoped" that Berbers in North Africa (as well as Christians in the Middle East and Kurds in Iraq) will be automatically diluted into the 'Arab nation'. [271]

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. [275]

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. [297], 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,' [298] & Gamal Abdel Nasser's affinity for the Mufti was great [299], Joachim Wurst describes the emergence and psychological mechanisms of modern anti-Semitism and 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. [300].

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 [301] 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. [302]

Since the 1800's & 1920's

The origin of anti-Jewish feelings among Arabs do not originate from what they perceive 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 attacked in various settlements by Arabs since the late 1800's [303].

'Historical and Investigative Research' examines 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 [304].

From an Egyptian writer on 'Turkish Daily News': Like pan-Arabism, pan-Islamism is an exclusivist ideology. By rejecting the modern conception of citizenship, it rejects the idea of non-Muslim civilian participation. Absolutist by nature, its discourse excludes non-Muslims, which explains why the flame of pan-Arabism was often borne by Christian Arabs, uneasy about the hegemonic designs of political Islam. Non-Muslim Arabs (Christian Arabs, Druze, etc.), excluded from the pan-Islamic club, still have an honorable place within pan-Arabism. And non-Arab Muslims (Turks, Iranians, Kurds), excluded from the pan-Arab club, can still join pan-Islamism. But the Israelis, being neither Arabs nor Muslims, are doubly a minority. The Jewish state is not an intruder in the Middle East. It is the extension and the representative of one of the most ancient civilizations of this part of the world. Everything links Israel to this region: geography, history, culture but also religion and language. The Jewish religion is the primary theological reference and the very foundation of Islam and Eastern Christianity. Hebrew and Arabic are as close to each other as two languages of Latin origin. [305]

In August 1929, leaflets prepared by the mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini instructed Muslims to attack the Jews [306], Al-Husseini also helped incite the series of pogroms which lasted from 1936 to 1939, in which hundreds more Jews were killed [307] [308], he even visited Berlin during World War II to ask Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler for help against the British and the Zionists [309]. On March 1, 1944, he 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." [310].

In the Thirties, the rise of pan-Arab nationalism coincided with the second King Faisal's admiration of the Nazis. By 1936, there were "episodes of Jews being killed in the streets that led to a growing sense of insecurity"... (the Iraqi Jews were hardly Zionists) The Nazi agenda crystallised Arab anti-semitism. On April 3, 1941, the rabidly pro-Nazi Rashid Ali, a former prime minister, with a group of similarly inclined politicians and army officers, staged a coup against Faisal II. Rashid Ali's aim was to root out British influence and ally Iraq with the Nazis, the mufti of Jerusalem, took refuge in Baghdad after the defeat of the Arab revolt in Palestine. The mufti launched a campaign of incitement against the Jews, and became a key adviser to the Golden Square, a group of pro-German, pan-Arab colonels led by Rashid Ali al-Gailani. For the Golden Square, Iraq was part of a larger Arab nation, in which Jews were an irremediably foreign element. it led to the worst assault on Jewish life and property in the history of Iraq, In June 1941, there was the Farhud ('breakdown of law and order') - or pogrom - during which "the mob wreaked havoc", "For two days, they killed Jews in the streets, kidnapped girls, raped them, killed them and mutilated the bodies. They burned property, looted houses - it's estimated that about 600 Jews were killed in those two days." [311][312]

Regarding the racist expulsion of 850,000 to 900,000 Jews from Arab countries [313] [314] the ethnic cleansing of the Jews [315] (The Jewish "Nakba" - Arabic for "catastrophe" – not only emptied cities like Baghdad - a third Jewish - it tore apart the cultural, social and economic fabric in Arab lands. Jews lost homes, synagogues, hospitals, schools, shrines and deeded land five times the size of Israel. Their ancient heritage - predating Islam by 1,000 years – was destroyed), 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" [316], Jews have been an indigenous people of the Middle East for over 2,500 years. On the basis of race and religion, Arab regimes subjected Jews to arbitrary arrest, confiscation of property and expulsions. This is fully documented in this report by Justice for Jews from Arab Countries. [317], pan-Arab and pan-Islamic parties and movements in almost every Arab state have fomented mob violence against Jews. [318] The displacement of Jews from Arab countries was not just a backlash to the creation of Israel and the Arabs' humiliating defeat. The "push" factors were already in place. Arab League states drafted a law in November 1947 branding their Jews as enemy aliens. But non-Muslim minorities, historically despised as dhimmis with few rights, were already being oppressed by Nazi-inspired pan-Arabism and Islamism. These factors sparked the conflict with Zionism, and drive it to this day.

During the 1961 Eichmann trial in Jerusalem, Hannah Arendt commented on the astounding degree of anti-Jewish venom and praise for Hitler in the Arab press together with regret that he "did not finish the job". 40 years later the state-controlled Egyptian daily Al Akhbar (April 18, 2001) declared "Our thanks to the late Hitler...", The same regret and heartfelt wish to see all Jews finally annihilated was expressed in April 2002 by a columnist in the second largest, state-controlled Egyptian daily Al- Akhbar [319] [320].

On Syria's Baathism's racism [321] Major ideas of Baathism center around racism and anti-Semitism. The Baath party stems from the Pan-Arab movement [322], 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 [323].

Hitler's useful Arab "inferior" race

The Nazis were clear in their minds that the Arabs were racially inferior, and there would, therefore, be no pleasure to be had from helping them in anything except for the extermination of Jews in their region. [324], most Arabs never realized that the Nazis would consider them racially inferior as well. [325]

Hitler and the Nazis admired the totalitarianism nature of (radical) Islam, Nazi official: The emotion in Germany is Islamic; warlike and Islamic. They are all drunk with wild god. That can be the historic future. Albert Speer, who was Hitler’s Minister of Armaments and War Production, wrote a contrite memoir of his World War II experiences while serving a 20-year prison sentence imposed by the Nuremberg tribunal. Speer’s narrative includes in thi discussion Hitler’s racist views of Arabs on the one hand, and his effusive praise for Islam on the other: [326]

Although he loathed Arabs, he once described them as "lacquered half-apes who ought to be whipped", Hitler understood that he and the Mufti shared the same rivals - the British, the Jews and the Communists. [327] [328] [329] [330]


In a title: 'The roots of Arab Anti-Semitism Radical Islam's favorite Western tradition' D. Greenberg writes: they were eager to make common cause with Hitler, despite Nazi belief that they, like the Jews, were inferior to Aryans. The mufti of Jerusalem, among others, actively spread propaganda about "Anglo-Saxon Jewish greed" while praising the Nazi war effort. Even years later, sympathy for Nazism could be easily found in Arab culture. When Israel apprehended Adolf Eichmann in 1960, a Saudi newspaper headline read, "Capture of Eichmann, Who Had the Honor of Killing Five Million Jews." [331]

Embracing Holocaust Deniers

In the wake of the intifada, crude Holocaust denial re-emerged as a means of delegitimizing Israel and Zionism, along with motifs that had typified the discourse of the early years of the Arab-Israeli conflict, such as regret that Hitler had not finished the job. Egyptian columnist Ahmad Rajab thanked Hitler for taking revenge on the Israelis "in advance on behalf of the Palestinians," but noted that it was not complete.61 The PA semi-official paper al-Hayat al-Jadida published an article on 13 April by Khayri Mansur, entitled "Marketing Ashes," which elaborates various themes common to Holocaust deniers: alleged political and economic exploitation by Zionist propaganda, and doubting the number of Jews exterminated as well as well as the existence of the gas chambers.62 The Hizballah website disseminated "The Holocaust Lie," from Richard Harwood's book Did Six Million Really Die?, and referred the browser to the Leuchter Report.63 Norman Finkelstein's book The Holocaust Industry drew considerable attention in the Arab media. It was translated into Arabic, reviewed and discussed while Finkelstein himself was a welcome interviewee.64 Although it does not deny the Holocaust, the book was perceived as an anti-Jewish/anti-Zionist tract, confirming Arab claims of exploitation of the Holocaust for Zionist political ends. At the Durban conference, Arab and Muslim representatives attempted, publicly, for the first time, to trivialize the Holocaust by denying its uniqueness and turning it into one of many holocausts. The centrality of Holocaust denial in the Arab discourse was manifested in two events – an aborted conference of Western revisionists in Beirut, and an Arab forum on historical revisionism, which took place in May in Amman. The conference "Revisionism and Zionism," co-sponsored by the California-based Institute of Historical Review (IHR), the leading Holocaust denial group in the world (sued for libel [332] ). [333]

A writer in an article titled: 'Anti-Semitism: From The Holocaust To Israel-Bashing': "In the Judenrein Arab Middle East, racist anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial are preached in mosques, featured in the media and taught in schools." [334]

Egypt has played gross anti-Jewish TV extravaganza "Horse without Horseman" which also portrays the Arab/Israeli conflict in an antisemitic anti-Jewish format [335]. so do anti-Jewish themes in Hezbollah Media. [336] Memri documents Anti-Semitism in the Arab world [337], So does the ADL [338], Saudi Arabia bans Jewish visitors [339]. Pew's finding in 2005 found that in Muslim nations such as (even moderate) Jordan most viewed Jews unfavorably. [340].

There's a very worrying alarming large data of incidents Arabs attacking Jews (for no reason other than being identified as 'Jews') worldwide [341].

In February 2009, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) denied entry visa to an Israeli tennis player into the country for the international games. "To discriminate as the UAE did against one player in this way smacks of bigotry and racism" [342] [343], The Women's Tennis Association has fined the Dubai Open organisers $US300,000 ($A465,000) [344], Sponsors have pulled out of Dubai over this 'racism row' [345], Bret Stephens on ([346] Wall Street Journal's "hits & misses") The Fining of UAE for denial of visa to Israeli tennis player is a "defeat for bigotry".

In February, 2009, the Arab world went crazy over reports that Leonardo DiCaprio is converting to Judaism & his relationship with a Jewish beauty, hateful messages flooded sites such as Al Arabiya [347] [348].

But it knows no borders, of the ADL's records documenting antisemitic attacks worldwide [349], 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' [350].

In 2007 the London editor of pan-Arab daily was praying for Iranian nuclear genocide attack on Israel [351] "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 [352].

United by hate, Neo Nazis & radical Arabists, Islamists cooperation

The "cooperation" between Unlikely partners: White supremacists ally with [Arab] Muslim extremists [353], the Peculiar Alliance [354], Including ridiculous anti Israel "conspiracy theorists" that don't have any basis in reality [355], The KKK uses Arab businesses to recruit it's members, One can always tell the KKK when they have a politician in office [356], Some have noted about 'Arabist wing' inside the infamous racist KKK [357], Neo-Nazi coined offensive terms used by anti-Semites and neo-Nazis referring to the government of the United States and occasionally to Britain, implying that Jews and their supporters control the mechanisms of government, is used by hardcore "Palestine" supporters and Pan-Arabists who seek the elimination of Israel. [358]

In an essay titled: "The Swastika and the Crescent Muslim and Neo-Nazi extremists unite" Martin A. Lee writes about: the Nazi-Muslim axis, about Ahmed Huber: Neo-Nazi, Islamic convert, Advocating a pan-Islamic insurgency in British-controlled Palestine, the Brotherhood proclaimed their support for the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini... Although he loathed Arabs (he once described them as "lacquered half-apes who ought to be whipped"), Hitler understood that he and the Mufti shared the same rivals - the British, the Jews and the Communists. [359]


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 [360], between 2000-2001 200 Arabs attacked Jews on the Champs Elysees [361], in March 2003 French Arab Muslims attack Jews in Paris in an "anti-war" march [362], in 2003 Jewish congregations in Sweden have noted a sharp increase in "harassment threats and attacks by Arabs and Muslims against Jews [363], in 2004 Six Arab youths attacked a twenty three year old young mother with her thirteen month old baby [364] after "deciding" she was Jewish, cut her hair with knives, slashed her clothes and scrawled swastikas on her belly in black felt-tip pen [365],in March 2006 Jews attacked in Paris suburbs by Arabs [366] in June 2008 Jewish Boy Attacked by Arab Muslim Mob in Paris [367], 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. [368].

In April 2002 the Antwerp-based Arab European League (AEL) leader Dyab Abou Jahjah (1971) performed for the first time at a pro-Palestine demonstration in Antwerp that got completely out of hand, 'Where flags of Israel were set on fire and demonstrators shouted anti-Semitic chant" (De Volkskrant, 11/5/02). "Jews are dogs," was heard in the streets (Reformatorisch Dagblad, March 1 2003) [369]. his group branded Anti-Semitic [370], It ridiculed the holocaust [371], on February 2006 this Muslim European group posted anti-Semitic cartoons, [372] the AEL website posted a cartoon of Anne Frank in bed with Adolf Hitler [373] , and on January 2009 was behind Anti-Jewish riots in Belgium. [374]

Australia

Jeremy Jones wrote in a report in 2004 on Australia that 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 [375].

On campus

Columbia University's investigation into charges of anti-Jewish intimidation by Arab professors [376].

Harassment on Jewish students in Canadian universities by Arabs like in Carleton [377], Concordia University [378] which has been described by some as "centre of militant Arabism in Canada" [379]. [380] there were charges (in 2002) of militant Arabism in Canada's Concordia University.

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" [381] [382] [383].

November 2008, Arab Students at UC Berkeley Disrupt Israel Event, Attack Jews The Arab students unfurled the large flag on a balcony above the outdoor site where the concert was taking place, inciting a provocation right in front of the concert-goers, who were enjoying the event as part of the campus' Israel Liberation Week. Several Jewish concertgoers went into the building to ask the Arabs to remove the flag – but were viciously attacked, with one male concertgoer knocked down from a blow on the back of his head, witnesses said. College alumnus Gabe Weiner, who was helping run the concert, was assaulted by the leader of the anti-Israel group, Husam Zakharia, who also attacked one of the performers, Yehuda De Sa. The fight was finally broken up by John Moghtader, a senator in the UC Berkeley student organization. Police were called in and arrested Zakharia along with others from his group, charging them with battery. Witnesses said that the Arab students shouted anti-Semitic curses and epithets throughout the incident, calling the Jews "Nazis" and "dogs," [384].

On February, 2009 The Canadian Federation of Jewish Students warned Jewish students warned of growing threat of violence and threats against Jews (from 'pro Arab students') who overtly support Israel or who are wearing clothing that identifies them as Jews. On February 11, York University students blocked the entrance to the office of Hillel, a Jewish campus group, shouting anti-Israel — and allegedly anti-Semitic — statements. Campus and city police had to escort the students through the swarm. The Toronto Police Service are investigating a potential hate crime, The RCMP is investigating an incident at the University of British Columbia, in which a pro-Palestinian student allegedly assaulted two Jewish students. During the conference, a Jewish Student claimed he has seen a spike in complaints from Jewish students across the country in recent weeks. He also alluded to several incidents--including the dissemination of posters that featured anti-Semitic caricatures. [385]

There are complaints against the Muslim 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 [386].

Venezuela

From a 2000-2001 Report of Antisemitism And Racism, Responses to the intifada in the media, in wall graffiti and by Arab organizations in Venezuela such as FEARAB (Arab Federation for Latin America) were directed at de-legitimizing the State of Israel, which was accused of causing the Palestinian tragedy. The radical language used against Israel was not infrequently antisemitic, for example, the comparison of Israeli soldiers with Nazis [387].

In January 2009, Venezuela expelled Israeli ambassador over Gaza, due to influence by Chavez's government's Justice Minister Tarek El Aissami, who is of Arab descent [388] and a sizable population of Arab descent, hundreds of people who marched against Israel [389] (at Israel's anti terror operation of cast lead [390] [391], Descendants of Arabs thriving in S. America, Venezuela has a flourishing Arab community of about 1.5 million, business and commerce. Shop names like Flower of Palestine are a common [392]).

In Jan. 1, 2009, Antisemitic graffiti was painted on the corner of Cristobal Colon Sinai Jewish School in Caracas [393].

There was worldwide condemnation pouring down on Venezuela After Synagogue Attack in Caracas, with written racist messages like: "Jews, get out," in the worst ever attack on the Venezualan Jewish community [394], Death threats against rabbis and the menacing of the Jewish community has apparently led to vandalism of a synagogue in Caracas. Marauders entered the temple and profaned the Torah and Ark, strewing them on the floor and fired shots in the air [395], it has been said that 'Palestinian' and Arab supporters in Venezuela were responsible [396] and Chavez's (described by many as a dictator [397] [398] [399][400] [401] [402] [403] [404] [405], who is a new "hero" in the Arab world [406]) close ties with the radical Islamic Republic of Iran's leader Ahmadinejad (that has called for genocide, to 'wipe out Israel' [407][408][409] ) [410] [411].

Hugo Chavez - extreme Arabism, he also forged alliances with dictators of rogue Arab states such as Libya' s Qaddafi, Iraq' Saddam Hussein, Exhorting his countrymen to return to their "Arab roots" [412], he has illegally given more than 270 Venezuelan passports to Arab extremists [413], Waleed al-Tabtabai A Kuwaiti Islamist MP called for moving Arab League headquarters from Cairo to Caracas after he expelled the Israel's ambassador, Tabtabai said that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez "has proved that he was more Arab than some Arabs" [414].

Roots and cause of Middle east conflict

Pundits explain that the conflict in the middle east Arabs Vs Israel (that started with racist massacres on Jews accompanied with the slogan "Itbach al Yahud - Kill the Jews" [415] already in the 1920's [416], through Hitler's buddy [417] the Mufti Mohammad Amin al-Husayni is just another Arab Muslim intolerance, the plight of Israel - being a minority in a majority hostile middle east. [418] [419] [420] [421] [422] [423] 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." [424], 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 [425]. '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? [426], and the phenomenon of the new anti-Semitism which demonizes Jews and Israel alike, has fused itself with the "old" European anti Jewish bigotry [427]. Saddam Hussein's "Three Whom God Should Not Have Created: Persians, Jews, and Flies" [428] who also led a racist [429] genocide campaign [430] against the Kurds, coincides with that in moments before his death, he shouted: 'Palestine is Arab', meaning only Arab. [431], as part of a culture of hatred, the racism that denies historic roots of the Jews to Israel [432].

The first recorded Arab attack on Jews in Palestine was already back in 1886 in Petach Tikva [433][434] [435] [436].

A writer in an article titled: 'Anti-Semitism: From The Holocaust To Israel-Bashing' In the Judenrein Arab Middle East, racist anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial are preached in mosques, featured in the media and taught in schools. [437]

Fascist roots of the 'war on Israel' from the beginning, Some British fascists were also eager to fight the Jews in Palestine, a development noticed after Jamal Nasir of the Arab Office addressed a group of fascists in Hampstead, as a result of which the 43 Group learned that some were visiting the Arab League Office in Eaton Square, London in order to join the Arab Legion' with the express intention of 'killing Jews,' Arab League's secretary Azzam Pasha, had received a letter from his friend, the fervent pro-Arab fascist Captain Robert Gordon-Canning, suggesting that a major general travel to the Middle East and lecture to the Arabs about modern warfare. [438] revealed intelligence documents (1948 Report to the UN, which rebukes PLO's Myth of National Liberation) show that before the 15 May 1948 invasion, British intelligence knew that the Arabs terrorizing the future Israel were being led in part by Nazi advisers. These included Bosnian Muslims from the infamous Handzar Division of the Waffen SS. According to a French intelligence document published by The Nation seven months later, the British sent thousands of Nazi prisoners of war, including top war criminals, to assist the Arab attack. This was after the Arab invasion. [439]

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 [440], concern about Carter's pro-Arabism and veteran historian of Islam and the Middle East [441] & 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." [442].

Bat Ye'or in: Arab racism consists of calling the Land of Israel, Arab land, whereas no Palestinian province, village, or town, including Jerusalem is mentioned either in the Koran or in any Arabic text before the end of the ninth century. On the contrary, these locations are mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, which represents the religious and historical heritage of the Jewish people. The Bible, which tells the history of this country, tells it in Hebrew, the language of the country, and not in Arabic. Palestinian racism consists of asserting that the whole history of Israel, biblical history, is Arab, Islamic, and Palestinian history. [443]

Mideast Narratives Have Changed Over Time, Though Arab governments in a spirit of Pan-Arabism founded the PLO, the acknowledged historical chronology relegates such inconvenient facts to the dustbin. Instead, fiction assumes the realm of fact while charges of racism are leveled against anyone who denies the veracity of "Palestinian claims." Instead of the Palestinians being perceived as a group of immigrants from various Arab states that have only recently coalesced into a semi-unified community, they are acknowledged as a group deserving of equal rights to the historical Jewish homeland. [444]

When pressed by an Islamist pro-Jihadists of Hamas where they stand on "Palestine", (after IDF's cast lead operation against the terror group Hamas), (most) Berber leaders said: We Don't March Because Islamists and Pan-Arabists Have Monopolized the Public Sphere, we reject completely both ideologies 'Islamism and pan-Arabism', that Selective Humanism and Compassion Are the Expression of an Unspoken Racism, that The 'Arab Street' Is Jubilant When an Indoctrinated Palestinian Child Blows Himself up in Tel Aviv" - And Ignores Crimes in Darfur and Kurdistan, they spoke out against Palestinians' death cult such that of Gaza: Death is their ideal, their culture, and the pillar of their values. The society that [Hamas] dominates, is indoctrinated to murder, to kill in jubilation and in horror. against the Arab terrible media that shows casualties caused by Arab Palestinian themselves (with Iranian & Syrians pulling the strings) in order to make Israel look bad suffer martyrdom while serving as a human shield in a war imposed on them by Hamas' Islamist militias and their allies in Damascus and Tehran. The media are at the source of the clamors of indignation heard from the four corners of the world when faced with the horrors of a war broadcast live [445]

There's extensive research on 'Palestinian Anti-Semitism' [446], In its official media, the PA daily described: The Fable of the Holocaust [447], 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 [448] This Palestinian racism is particularly dangerous because this hatred of Jews is portrayed as the will of Allah. [449]

When pressed by an Islamist pro-Jihadists of Hamas where they stand on "Palestine" (after IDF's cast lead operation against the terror group Hamas), (most) Berber leaders said: We Don't March Because Islamists and Pan-Arabists Have Monopolized the Public Sphere, that Selective Humanism and Compassion Are the Expression of an Unspoken Racism, that The 'Arab Street' Is Jubilant When an Indoctrinated Palestinian Child Blows Himself up in Tel Aviv" - And Ignores Crimes in Darfur and Kurdistan, they spoke out against Palestinians' death cult such that of Gaza: Death is their ideal, their culture, and the pillar of their values. The society that it [Hamas] dominates is indoctrinated to murder, to kill in jubilation and in horror. against the Arab terrible media that shows casualties caused by Arab Palestinian themselves (with Iranian & Syrians pulling the strings) in order to make Israel look bad suffer martyrdom while serving as a human shield in a war imposed on them by Hamas' Islamist militias and their allies in Damascus and Tehran. The media are at the source of the clamors of indignation heard from the four corners of the world when faced with the horrors of a war broadcast live [450]

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 (Arab), regardless of his political view. [451] [452]

Critics have raised the fact that 'the notion that Palestinians, but not Jews, may live in Judea and Samaria is blatant "racism." [453].

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" [454].

Pasko writes: That even before Hamas was elected to rule the Palestinian Authority, it was a known fact that the Arabs want "Palestine" to be a Judenrein (Jew-free) Arab-only state. [455].

Anti-Jewish by Israeli-Arabs

The worrying involvement of Israeli Arabs in terrorist attacks directed against Israeli Jews [456] [457], Among the brazened ones in 2008 are noted the bulldozer attacks [458], "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."[459]. Arab Workers Attack, Use Hammer to Injure Jewish Electrician (Jul 24, 2008) [460], On July 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. [461].

Israeli-Arab leadership, Arab MK Ahmed Tibi: (the entire area) 'Palestine Belongs to Arabs, Not Jews' [462], on January 2008 Islamic Movement head in Israel was charged with incitement to racism, violence [463] 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. [464].

It has bee noted for a while that Arab Knesset members such as Ahmed Tibi have turned racists against Jews [465].

In face of radical Arabs' in Israel, such as Azmi Bishara toward terrorism, forming alliances with those attempting to annihilate Israel, a new term was coined: 'Bish-Arabism' , it could be defined as a radical and rapid shift among Israeli Arabs - especially their representatives in the Knesset - from relative moderation [466].

In Oct 2008, on Yom Kippur, an Arab driver drove dangerously wild into Jewish neighbourhoods causing clashes, Arabs heading back to their neighborhoods ran riot through Jewish areas of the city. Calling "Death to the Jews" and Allah hu akbar ("Allah is great"), the rioters vandalized hundreds of Jewish-owned shops and vehicles, and threw rocks at people on their way to or from Yom Kippur prayers. [467]

On March 30, 2009, Arab MK "complained" of: 'Too Many Jews in Galilee,' Taleb A-Sana of the United Arab List (Ra'am Ta'al) accused the government of "Judaizing the Galilee and the Negev" by encouraging Jews to move to those areas. A-Sana called on the government to encourage Arab life in those areas... [468]

Anti-Asian

Some had the courage to speak out against the terrible treatment of South Asians in Saudi Arabia [469], in 2008 Asian immigrant are forced to clean mosques for 'skipping prayers' Riyadh [470], Saudi Arabia courts: "Asian and African Witches Will be Hunted Down and Terminated". The current witch hunt, aimed mostly at Indian and Africans, appears to be a symptom of the racism inherent in the Arab culture. For centuries, Arabs traded in African slaves, and such slavery continues today, with both African women and Slavic women from the former Soviet Union being forced into prostitution. [471], Amnesty charged on Saudi Arabia that Asian workers continue to suffer behind closed doors [472], from the book: 'Race, Culture and Difference' by James Donald, Ali Rattansi p 27: Arab racism is such that most Pakistanis would prefer to work in Britain than in Saudi Arabia for a higher income; racist humiliations. [473].

"Foreign Female Workers Were Tortured to Death, Saudi ambassador Said It Was Her Destiny", it was the will of Allah, with no apology given. [474] [475]

High volume of racism cases is recorded against Asians in Dubai, especially against Indians and other Asians, the situation is so bad that Even "Dubai for Visitors" publication had to write about it [476]. "Meet the slaves" in UAE, Mainly of Indian or Pakistani origins [477]. United Arab Emirates - Heaven for money, hell for Asian workers in the United Arab Emirates More than 10 million Asians work in the Emirates in quasi-slave [478].

Caste system

The Al Akhdam, a minority social group of a dark complexion in Yemen, or Yemen's blacks, pejoratively called Al-Akhdam (servants) [479], has been subjected to racial segregation, extreme social practices of cruelty and violent socio-economic exclusion [480], discrimination [481] and oppression, the group form a kind of hereditary caste in Yemen [482].

Anti-African

Arab Racism against Black Africans [483] [484], Arabs do not consider Black Moslems authentic or of consequence. At best, they concede to blacks, the role of ordained slaves or animals, to be used as beasts of burden by the "superior Arab race." The rule applies to all blacks, whether Moslems or non-Moslems and whether of Nigerian (Hausa/Fulani or Yoruba extractions) , Tanzanians, Ugandans, Malians or African-Americans[485] Darfur is but one example of Arab racism toward non-Arabs within the broader Arab world [486].

Blacks who live in Arab countries subject to racism, most Arabs refer to blacks as "Abed" which means "slave" in Arabic. [487]. 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 [488]. in Arabia Black Muslims are not accorded the same status as pure Arabs. They are referred, even in Mecca during the Haj, as 'abed', meaning slave. Whereas in the western world the human rights concept has made possible an Obama, in Arabia such a phenomenon, of a Black president is inconceivable, such is the level of racism. In Arabia and amongst Arabs, anti-Black racism is a fact of life, be it in Libya or in Egypt. So that Africans, who, by colonial design, are ruled by Arabs, as is the case in south Sudan and Mauritania, for example, are the subjects of an apartheid system which is even more oppressive, due to Arabia's lack of enlightenment, than the racist system which was in place in southern Africa. [489] Some charge the Arab attitude on Darfur, 'to the True Nature of the Twin Fascisms of Islamism and Pan-Arabism' [490], Pan-Arab fascism, conveniently cloaked in the pseudo-religious mystique of the Islamist jihad [491].

Already in 1930, a traveller in Sudan observed that In the eyes of the Arab rulers of Sudan, the black slaves were simply animals given by Allah to make life of Arabs comfortable.

Osama Bin Laden, in a discussion with the Sudanese-American novelist, Kola Boof, in Morocco in 1996 said, "All African women are prostitutes, and the whole race of African men are *abeed* [slave] stock. Your people are like rats plaguing the earth," (Kola Boof, Diary of a Lost Girl, p. 167) [492] [493] [494]

(Mu'ammar Al-Qaddafi) 'Muammar Gadhafi's Arabization crusade'

In the New York Times June 5, 1988 about Libya's leader: Qaddafi is bringing a truly racist crusade against Chad and Africa, Chad's President, Hissen Habre, told [495]. He has heightened his Arabization policy pursuit at the AU level since 2001, pretending to be promoting the Pan-African agenda of Kwame Nkrumah. Chinweizu, the renowned scholar, described Gadhafi's Arab-Black Africa government plan at the time, "as unification of nigger monkey with python." [496] As Arabs themselves divide Africa into North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa to instigate a division and as long as the invaders continue to occupy our land and treat us as slaves in North Africa, the two segments of the continent cannot cohabit. His urge in modern times to enlarge Arabia inside Africa, is described as continuation of the Arab war against Africans and the Arabization of African lands that started in the 7th century CE. Arabs' racial war against black Africa started with their occupation and colonization of Egypt between 637 and 642 CE, decimating the Coptic or black population. [497]

Persecution of Africans saw a major rise in 2000, Africans have been brutally attacked in Gaddafi's Libya [498] Racism at the core of the attacks Libyans were amongst the most brutal of the onslaught against Africans [499] and in 2009, the UN saw an exposure of ongoing oppression on black migrants [500]

Yet, the Arabs in Sudan are Not Arab enough though...' In a 2008 article in The Guardian, 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. [501], When Sudan applied to join the Arab League, the regional organization of Arab States in the Middle East and North Africa in Jan 19, 1956 to become the 9th member and part of the trend to PAN-ARAB Nationalism, some member Arab countries of which Lebanon was one, initially felt uncomfortable and opposed candidly; they probably thought the Sudanese were too dark to be Arabs! [502]

Abul Kasem talks about the 'incredible hypocrisy and double standard that exists on the issue of racism in general.' Islamists living in the West often portray Islam as a religion free of racism. They never fail to criticize western countries of its racist attitude and contempt for people who are not of white complexion. It is quite perplexing that these Islamists never look at their own backyard, of blatant, naked racism enmeshed in the Islamic doctrine. Any non-Arab, non-white, who has been to a Middle East Arab country will tell the story of absolute racism practiced there. It is no secret that in rich Arab countries, (such as Saudi Arabia) people of dark complexion, such those from Africa, South Asia (Pakistan, India, Bangladesh) receive much lower pay than a white person from the western country would. There is strict, unspoken, racial apartheid practiced in the rich Arab countries. He argues that the racism practiced in the Arab countries is solidly founded in the very doctrine of Islam. the blatant Islamic racism is permeated in the founts of Islam, the Qur'an, ahadith, Sunna, and Sharia. That Islamic racism is endemic. It emanates straight from the Qur'an, Sunna, and Sharia. It cannot be eliminated so long the Muslims are enthused by these Holy Scriptures. The Muslims of black complexion will never be equal with the white Arabs. The concept of Islamic ummah, regardless of color and ethnic origin is simply not true. [503]

In the words of Darfurian Muslim Even my Islamic heritage reinforced this with quotes from the Prophet Muhammad such as "You should listen to and obey your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian [ie black] slave whose head looks like a raisin" (Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 89, Number 256) [504].

"Arab League and KKK are Two Faces for One Coin" says Elhadi Adam Elomda, The KKK (Ku Klux Klan) is equivalent to the Arab League. This is because of the similarity and agreement of these two terrorist organizations' goals. The KKK was founded to promote the white man's superiority in the United States of America. It looks for the dominance of white men within political, economical, and cultural aspects in the USA. The KKK started to achieve its goals by strengthening the relations among the white men in the USA. However, the KKK used discriminative means against the minority black people in the USA in order to achieve its prospective goals. As a result, the back people and disheartened white people revolted against the KKK. Therefore, the KKK was disbanded in the 1940s although it changed its goals of hating the black people into love of white people. By the time the KKK was disbanded in the USA as a terrorist organization, another KKK was born. This new KKK was born in a different area and has a dissimilar name from the former KKK. Yet, this new born KKK has similar goals to the former one. The newly formed KKK is named the Arab League. The Arab League was established in order to strengthen the political, economical, and cultural relations between its members. The league membership constituted of any independent Arab countries from any continent. Charter I states that "Any independent Arab state has the right to become a member of the League." Ironically, all these Arab KKK members were considered Islamic countries. Their values and motivations descended from their Islamic curriculums and the holy Quran book [505]

Al Qaeda's No. 2 leader uses racial epithet against Barack Obama in Nov 20, 2008, In a video, Ayman Zawahiri says the president-elect is 'the direct opposite of honorable black Americans' and says Obama, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice are 'house Negroes. [506].

Eritreans in Egypt suffer from racism [507], Egypt crackdown on African migrants (June 2008) [508], 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 [509], and on February 2009 shot Sudanese at Israel border, The migrants say they try to leave Egypt because of poverty and racism. [510].

Palestinian-Arab Racism: Secretary of State Rice has been the subject of some vicious racial attacks [511] 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' [512] Condemned by Black Activists [513]. On September 18 2007, Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV labeled U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a "black snake." [514].

On February 2009, an Arab bus driver in Israel's Egged was fired over his racist remark he made to an Israeli of Ethiopian descent: "drink milk and be white like me".[515]

Slavery & Arabism

It was 'Pan-Arabism' who authorized the enslavement of African Muslims in Saudi Arabia and other Arab states [516], and in Darfur, says an Arab human-rights activist: The chief culprit in this particular case seems to be pan-Arabism, the fascist movement that rose to power half a century ago through military coups [517]. In her book, Kola Boof wrote about slavery and Arabism in Sudan [518], The Anti Slavery Society found that: there is an ingrained psychology of racism or Arabism which deems the Dinka inferior [519].

Fundamentalist Islam and fanatical Arabism play a very important role in the slavery, ethnic cleansing, genocide in Sudan, the situation in Mauritania is equally beset with conflict. The history and tradition of African enslavement by Arabized moors is old and has persisted to the present day [520].

On Mauritania, The American Anti-Slavery Group reported, Slavery has been a part of Mauritanian society for centuries. In fact, today the majority of the country's population is comprised of slaves or former slaves. [521].

Persian Ahreeman X wrote about: the High Price that his ancestors paid to free Iran from Pan Arabist (Islamic) Slavery after 222 years of colonialism by Arabo-Muslim Oppressors. [522]

On July 15 2004, Human Rights Watch issued a report on the condition of Foreign workers in Saudi Arabia. The revelation that "Guest Workers" are systematically abused in Saudi Arabia should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with that region's history. What a shame that it took Sarah Whitson, executive director of HRW's Middle East and North Africa Division, to finally speak the unpalatable truth. "We found men and women in conditions resembling slavery," said Whitson in the press conference announcing their findings. [523]

Genocide in Sudan

Background on the Darfur Genocide "The [Sudanese] government [made up of Arabs] has launched scattered attacks on local African tribes for years. But when two main Darfuri rebel groups began retaliating against government positions in February 2003, Khartoum's leaders [intensified their campaign]... The Khartoum regime's motives in Darfur soon became clear: Its leaders are not only Islamists but Arabists, who believe blacks-even Muslims-are 'slaves.' " (From WorldMag.com.) Since 2003, Sudanese government forces and ethnic militia called "Janjaweed" have burned and destroyed hundreds of villages, killed and caused the deaths of possibly 200,000 people, and raped and assaulted thousands of women and girls. As of November 2006, approximately two million displaced people live in camps in Darfur and at least 218,000 people have fled to neighboring Chad, where they live in refugee camps. In addition to the people displaced by the conflict, at least 1.7 million other people need some form of food assistance because the conflict has destroyed the local economy, markets, and trade in Darfur. [524]

In 'Genocide in Darfur' by (by Samuel Totten, Eric Markusen) pg. 30, it lays out the background that led to the current calamity, racist pan-Arabism by Libya's Arab supremacist legion action for Arab expansion in Chad in 1987, and that: Libya was not orchestrating a simple border raid on a poor country; it was pursuing a new strategy of pan-Arabism, couched in an emotionally charged ideology [525].

The Arabist Islamist regime that fought for Islamo fascism arabism and islamism [526], displaced over 5 million in southern Sudan, Islamist dictator Omar el-Bashir (Al-Bashir) [527] (supported by Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who met with him: Nuclear power available for Al-Bashir's Sudan... [528] and by Hezbollah [529] ), was charged with crimes against humanity, genocide by the ICC [530] [531] and faced an arrest warrant [532], yet the Arab League backed this Arabist monster [533] against the genocide charges [534]. Some hope that locking up Sudan's Al-Bashir could let in some light into the war-torn region where Arab racism seen as the curse of Sudan. This terrible virus is claimed to be most virulent in leaders with varying degrees of dark skin and West-African tribal marks—the Janjaweed. [535]

The Christian Science Monitor 2004 affirms that Racism is at root of Sudan's Darfur crisis [536], a writer at RaceandHistory.com calls it 'Arab Racism And Imperialism In Sudan' [537], Darfur crisis linked to Arab racism, Slavery [538]. and this genocide has been described as an example of Arab racism at its worst [539]. Sudanese decry the "Apology of racism", that some Sudanese people of Arabic origin consider themselves superior than the indigenous Sudanese [540]. Der Spiegel writes about the Janjaweed: Sudan's War within a War - regime that uses tribal conflicts and Arab racism [541]. 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 [542].

 

Arabism = violence!

Arabism & Violence: Dictatorship, Totalitarianism, Oppression, War, Terrorism

The front runners of Pan-Arabism, brutal tyrants and waged large scale wars, such as Egypt's Nasser [543] (some describe Nasser's totalitarian ideology of Pan-Arabism, the 'forerunner of today's Islamism' [544]), Iraq's Saddam Hussein [545], Syria's Assad (on Lebanon [546] [547] [548] and on it's own people [549] [550] like the Hama massacre [551] [552] and the dictator in Sudan Al Bashir [553] [554].

The fact that all of those entities that call themselves "Arab states" are governed by dictatorships is proof that what they stand for is wrong. These gangster-like regimes collaborate with each other in oppressing their own people, using deadly force and fear tactics while pushing hateful agendas. They delude themselves in thinking they can build free markets and vibrant economies while their people still suffer oppression and lack basic freedoms. Rather each country should abandon Arabism and look inward for a definition of itself. [555].

Pan-Arabists and Islamists ends range from merely oppressive to genocidal [556].

From (an admission) on the Arab site: 'Lebanon Daily Star,' (March 23, 2005): Over the past 50 years, authoritarian leaders in the region have banded together in support for each other almost blindly, despite all evidence of despotism, totalitarianism and heavy handed oppression. Although the ideal of pan-Arab unity was never realized, it seems that what has been achieved is a union of corrupt regimes. Grossly misusing the language of Arab unity, they casually dismissed the mass murders that occurred under Saddam Hussein's rule, as well as genocide in Sudan, Syrian oppression of Lebanon, and countless other tragedies. And since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, they have extended only a tepid welcome to the country's leadership, and have turned a blind eye to the insurgency that is wreaking havoc on the lives of ordinary Iraqi citizens. We must no longer allow the language of Arab unity to be so distorted... [557] [558]

E. Karsh: Pan-Arabism causes conflict in the middle east [559].

Richard D. Molfese anylises "The Palestinian Conflict: Brought to you by the Arab League," that the 'Arab league' which was, is not a union of Arab States working for unification toward Arab solidarity or peace, but rather a fragmented group of power, status and wealth seekers trying to keep what they have and dumbing down their neighbors, have been using, exploiting and fueling the "Palestinian" conflict for the 'greater pan-Arab' cause of power under a supposed 'unity' flag over a divided Arab world, and that the Palestinians, are made to bleed, to keep all Arabs consciously united through their pain, while the Arab leaders keep the people's focus away from what they do., a continuous campaign, while sending the hateful message that the "westerners are devil". [560]

Farid Alghadry of the Reform Party of Syria called for the end of the pan- Arabist Baathist oppression. "Only Kurds can decide their own faith," he declared. [561]

Amir Taheri on Iraq (2003) Iraq's democrats and liberals see pan-Arabism as a barrier to democratization. [562]

An Arab writer in GulfNews: Even Pan-Arabism and nationalism have become empty of any meaning of unification, and are being used for conflicts with a neighbouring Muslim or Arab country. [563]

Alan Tonelson wrote in 1993 that the Gulf states which are made of some by legal-political fictions, some family corporations in which the restive immigrant employees greatly outnumber the indigenous owners, others "tribes with flags." All are under constant assault by centrifugal forces ranging from ethnic and religious tensions to Islamic fundamentalism to pan-Arabism. For many regimes, making scapegoats of foreigners and infidels is the only hope of survival. [564]

On the ('Palestinian' Arabs as part of the Pan-) Arabs vs Israel conflict a writer sums it up: The goal of Arabs is simple: to wipe out the state of Israel from the map and create the twenty-second Arab state. If anyone doubts me, just listen to what Yasser Arafat, the late leader of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, told a reporter, Arianna Palazzi in 1970: "The question of borders doesn't interest us… From the Arab standpoint, we mustn't talk about borders. Palestine is nothing but a drop in an enormous ocean. Our nation is the Arabic nation that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea and beyond it….The PLO is fighting Israel in the name of Pan-Arabism. What you call 'Jordan' is nothing more than Palestine." [565], ...the interplay among pan-Arabism with the Palestinian issue as a bond, pan-Islam, and national interests have often produced tensions [566], from the book: Essentials of Terrorism: Concepts and Controversies' Abu Nidal: Ruthless Revolutionary... long argued that Al Fatah membership should be open to all Arabs, not just Palestinians. In support of the Palestinian cause, he argued that Palestine must be established as an Arab state and that its borders must stretch from the Jordan River in the east to the Mediterranean sea. According to pan- Arabism, however, this is only one cause among many in the Arab world. [567]

In an article: 'Nasrallah and War on Egypt' (30/12/2008) in Egypt's 'asharq alawsat' Tariq Alhomayed wrote, Nasrallah incited the Egyptians against their own country and leadership... Hassan Nasrallah, who made an appearance... to stir up the Arabs and Arabism, who is the same man who occupied Beirut and tortured its Sunni citizens, along with Iranian agents..., today wants us to follow the instructions of [Supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah] Khamenei. This is what Nasrallah called for in his recent speech. What many did not notice in Nasrallah's address is that he devoted half of the speech to attacking Egypt and incitement against it, whilst the second half was devoted to attacking elements within Lebanon. [568]

The linkage to terror

Protecting terrorism, Pan-Arabism: the inhuman progenitor of Islamic Terrorism [569]. "Terror was used by the Arabs against the Jews in the Land of Israel since the dawn of Zionism." [570].

An Arabist group called Jamiat-e Dawa el al Qurani Wasouna. The J.D.Q., as it is known by American intelligence, is suspected of having links to both the Saudi and Kuwaiti governments [571]

An analyst: The larger war on terrorism will end only when both Pan-Arabists and Islamists abandon their desperate desire to turn back the calendar to the year 1000, when they accept that neither ethnic purity not scriptural fidelity can serve as the raison d'être of a modern state. [572]

Osama bin Laden is in fact the latest and quintessential product of pan-Arabism [573]

P. Berman in his book: 'Terror and Liberalism', makes a strong case for viewing a war against the Baathist regime of Saddam Hussein as a war against the latest incarnation of 20th-century totalitarianism -- a war on behalf of the ideas and values of liberal democratic society -- and in the process, he connects Pan-Arab Baathist ideology with the radical Islamist ideology of Sayyid Qutb, Osama bin Laden, et al., referring to it all together as "Muslim totalitarianism." that they represent two versions of the same "totalitarian system." [574]

A writer in an article titled: The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Nazification of the Arab world While Europe was largely de-Nazified after the war, Muftism, or Arab-Islamic Nazism remains a major political and philosophical force. Arab peoples continue to groan under Nazi-Arab oppressive regimes and Mufti influenced pan-Arabists continue to wage war against non-Islamic nations and peoples. [575]

An analyzer on NRO: Baathism (pan-Arabism and Arab supremacism) is largely a spent force but its remnants have merged both with bin Ladenism [576].

At the early stages of the war in Iraq (March 22, 2003): An Iraqi officer, who stood in front of a group of soldiers engaged in marching drills, said: "Oh, Jihad fighters and Arab believers... we greet you with the greetings of Arabism and Islam. We are happy to show you some of the drills of our brothers the Arab volunteer." [577]

S. Vincent (2004): The terror on Iraq is caused by: pan-Arab Baathists and pan-Islamic jihadists. [578]

Syrian liberal author Nidhal Na'isa began his career in journalism as a teenager, at the government dailies Al-Thawra and Syria Times, but today he is a vocal opponent of the Arab regimes, in his words: "Our Totalitarian Societies", 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. [579]

The Palestinian terror organization: PFLP, a marxist, pan-Arabist revolutionary group was, until the rise of Hamas, the second-largest Palestinian faction after Fatah' [580].

Palestinian Fatah Leader, School Books Supports Terrorism Against US in Iraq, quote: "We [however,] take pride in this [Arab nationalist] language because we are the authentic Arabs who believe in our Arabism, our faith, our cause" [581]

From a friday Sermon on Palestinian Authority Television (March , 2003): "America will be destroyed, Allah willing", "Oh, people of Palestine, Oh, people of Iraq. The Crusader, Zionist America has started an attack against our Iraq, the Iraq of Islam and Arabism [582]

In January 2009, a new Islamic Arab terror group was established in Lebanon, Mohammad Ali Al Husseini, Lebanon's Arab Islamic Council Secretary-General, announced about the "resistance" movement [583] under a supremacist flag of "Arabism", vowed to go against Israel, they oppose Hezbollah as it gets its orders from (non Arab) Iranians [584] they even named a rocket as Uroubua - Arabism [585].
