‘ANTI-SEMITISM’ as a political weapon

Lasse Wilhelmson

MAY-25-2005 Criticising Israel´s mistakes is acceptable. But questioning whether Israel is a Jewish state with a racist apartheid system that renders non-Jews second rate citizens that is not acceptable. It makes little difference whether the criticism is based on facts. Few people who cannot claim Jewish descent would dare to criticize publicly. They are afraid of being accused of ‘anti-semitism’.

There is much talk of disarming countries with nuclear weapons. Not the US and its allies, but the so-called `rogue states؟, especially Iran, which doesn´t yet have any weapons. Israel is hardly ever mentioned as a nuclear power although it has been for a long time. In spite of its advanced plans to bomb Iran, Israel is not seen as a threat to the surrounding world. The media regularly criticizes severely various religions, especially Islam, but never Judaism. Catholic pressure through lobbying, or the Pope´s speeches on political issues are discussed and criticized. The fight in South Africa against the Boers involved a whole world. Not because they were a ‘race’ with undesirable characteristics, but because they were the social group who in their own interests formed and administrated a racist apartheid system. The same sort of criticism was aimed at the followers of Cecil Rhodes in Rhodesia.

All types of social, ethnic and religious groups defend their own special interests. It is considered quite legitimate for their spokesmen to do their best to promote these interests; just as it is quite legitimate to criticize the same. But the moment Jewish spokesmen and their organisations are criticised, the legitimacy vanishes into thin air. The mention of ‘Jewish power’ makes most people´s blood run cold, but it is quite alright to discuss ‘gypsy power’ or rather the lack of it. ‘Jewishness’ has become taboo. This applies particularly to the combination of ‘Jewish’ and of ‘power’ . All kinds of power can be examined and discussed, questioned or rejected, but not the Jewish kind which is generally presented as non-existent.

There is growing anxiety in the Palestinian movement in Sweden about using ‘Jewish’ as a prefix to the settlements, the state of Israel or the apartheid system, albeit the use is quite correct. The settlements for example are ‘Jewish settlements’ simply because only Jews are allowed to live there. They are not Israeli because non-Jewish citizens are forbidden access to them. Neither are they Zionist as many Zionists are not Jews. It has now got to the stage where a leading spokesmen for the Palestinians in Sweden denies that Jews and Palestinians have disagreements, despite the law giving Jews all over the world the right to return to Israel, thus making them potential enemies of the Palestinians. Having a Jewish mother gives the right to live in the country taken from the Palestinians. One would be hard put to find a more fundamental disagreement. The issue of blood-relationship renders it, moreover, racist.

A reluctance to discuss Judaism´s significance for Zionism in Israel of today makes it impossible to understand why Israel was not content with fifty per cent, later eighty per cent, of Palestine. Or why a social democratic prime minister ordered his soldiers to break the bones of children throwing stones? And how can one understand why Jews in Jerusalem throw their garbage onto the roads and back yards of their Palestinian neighbours, spit at them, or why masked Jewish settlers during the ‘cease fire’ launched pogroms on unarmed Palestinian farmers, women and children? Or why the Israeli ‘peace movement’ and ‘left’ do not question the Jewish apartheid system? Just and lasting peace can never be achieved without its transformation. Few people think that all this is a result of the Jews being an ‘evil race’. But if it cannot be explained by any other means, the few risk becoming too many. A racially-based hate of Jews is helped along by the label of ‘anti-semitism’ pasted on nearly all criticism of Israel, not to mention criticism of Judaism.

Zionism, through its Jewish organisations, is the dominant interpretation of Judaism today. This is a renaissance of national Judaism of the Middle Ages and the judicial system Halakha with its extreme animosity towards non-jews who were seen rather as subhuman. This revival is seen as very beneficial by most Jewish organisations worldwide. They demand of their members positive commitment to the state of Israel. This is the context in which the behaviour mentioned above can be understood. Most Jews in the diaspora are, however, ‘happily’ unaware of this and are being used by their Zionist leaders and rabbis.

Politics and religion have merged in the state of Israel today. A person speaking out for a secular democracy to replace the Jewish state, is accused of, in fact, wanting to ‘drive the Jews into the sea’. Most Jews today identify themselves not with Israel but with Israel as a Jewish state. This creates a fundamental contradiction for many Jews: supporting the Jewish apartheid state while promoting democracy in the countries where they actually live. Denying or whitewashing Israel´s politics, becomes a way of keeping one´s identity intact. Violent, groundless attacks with ‘anti-semitism’ as a weapon is the method used against any attempt to lay bare this contradiction. A well known example is how Israel´s former ambassador to Sweden vandalised the art installation Snow White last year.

The risk of being labelled ‘anti-semitic’ if you are not a Jew or of ‘self-hatred’ if you are, creates self-censorship among those who are critical of Israel´s policies or dislike the successful lobbying carried out by Jewish and Christian Zionists, influencing US foreign policy. The so- called Friends of Israel, most of them spokesmen for Jewish organisations, have taken it upon themselves to be the foremost interpreters of the term ‘anti-semitism’. Few question this role as they run the risk of being tainted themselves if they do. The term ‘anti-semitism’ is taking on new nuances all the time. Of late the slightest implication, as in ‘almost anti-semitic’ or an ‘anti-semitic point of interest’ has been enough to invoke self-censorship. The mention of these circumstances is often felt to be ‘dangerous’ as it could lead to the growth of ‘anti-semitism’. All this in a western world where islamophobia is a considerably greater problem.

Jews are rightly proud of their success in almost all corners of society. In art and science and, not least, the media and politics. Israeli newspapers tell of the successful ‘likudification’ of the Bush administration and delight in the fact that the Israeli minister for the diaspora is Bush´s new favourite author and pet in the White House. Russian oligarchs with Israeli citizenship take breakfast there. There is a culture of boasting about this among Jews. But should a critic of Israel point to these exact same circumstances, he would immediately be accused of spreading ‘anti-semite theories of conspiracy’ and thus be barred from any further discussion.

The Jews have for many years had total entrepreneurship of ‘God´s chosen People’ with a ‘biblical right’ to Palestine. Zionism has been politically successful in reducing the Holocaust to Nazi war crimes against Jews. By presenting themselves as the major (the only?) victims in the history of humanity they expect to claim special moral rights. The method is used favourably to justify and cover up the genocide of the Palestinians. ‘Anti-semitism’ is being used to stop criticism of Israel´s way onwards to achieve the Zionist goal of a Jewish state in the whole of Palestine. Before this goal can be realised, ‘peace’ must be reached with the creation of a few Palestinian reservations on ten per cent of what was originally Palestine, walled-in and gradually wasting away. We are almost there now.

Bahrain and the Struggle for Self-Defense

The current situation in Bahrain has taken the peaceful protestors to a crossroad, and all the attention is towards the religious leaders. The choice would be to either end their struggle and face systematic abduction, imprisonment or execution by the dictator of Bahrain, or to continue with the struggle by getting slain or by self-defense. The choice belongs to the people of Bahrain, and the Holy Qur’an dictates that: “Whoever defends himself after he is oppressed, there is no way (of blame) against them.” (42:41) The Arabic word Intasar in the above verse means to defend oneself; those who defend themselves after tyranny is imposed upon them, there is no blame on them (for any conflict or altercation). By the act of self-defense, the oppressed has vindicated his position and completed his divine responsibility, and thus recorded his voice in the annals of history that will amputate the courage and audacity of the oppressors of the later time.

But what is oppression in Islam? And who are the oppressors in the eyes of Allah? The Qur’an says, “For whoso transgresses Allah’s limits: such are the wrongdoers” (2:229). The act of crossing the limits that Allah has established is tantamount to oppression in Islam. The Holy Qur’an elaborates the explanation regarding oppressors in the following verse: “Oppressor is he who rejects the Day of Judgment and he who diverts (from) the path of truth and who creates a hinder in the path.” (7:45)

The first sign of the oppressors is that they consider themselves free from standing trial in the court of Allah on the Day of Judgment; their greed for this world overshadows the fear of the day when their actions will jostle them headlong into eternal perdition.

The second sign is that they divert the truth for their personal gains. The history of Islam has records of many individuals who belied the words of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) and purposely misinterpreted the meaning of the Qur’an in order to seek material gains. They have designed a lie against Allah and His messengers to portray their own evil actions as righteous deeds. They have been labeled in the Qur’an as follows: “And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah or (he who) gives the lie to His communications; surely the unjust will not be successful.” (6:21) The actions of those individuals who belied the Prophet – during his lifetime and after his death – created a Muslim nation that attested to their lie as truth and adhered to it with unwavering commitment.

The third sign of the oppressors is that they create a hindrance in the path of truth so that the truth gets buried in the realms of perplexities, because the path to truth leads to the destruction of the tyrants; the truth and the beholder of the truth are both imprisoned in the dungeons of the evil men that appear in sanctified garbs. The Qur’an explains to mankind the nature of oppression and the warning against this path, in the following verse: “And believe in what I have revealed, verifying that which is with you, and be not the first to deny it, neither take a mean price in exchange for My communications; and Me, Me alone should you fear.” (2:41) This is a clear indication of who the tyrants are in the eyes of Allah: there are those who have sold the communication of Allah for a small price in exchange for this material world and for seeking their interest. They are determined to massacre humanity, plunder the wealth of a nation, hatch conspiracies to subjugate the bearers of truth, systematically alter the path of religion and lead masses to misguidance, hatred and extremism.

The Qur’an further emphasizes the sign of injustice in the following verse: “And do not mix up the truth with the falsehood, nor hide the truth while you know (it).” (2:42) This is the epitome of injustice and a real tool that the tyrants have adopted to establish religiosity in their actions. This has been the nature of all the tyrants who entered the religion of Prophet Muhammad and Imam Ali (peace be upon him) and deceived the people by blending the truth with falsehood, and by adulterating the doctrines of Islam by inducing the idea of autocracy hidden under the veil of “rightly guided caliphate”. The journey of tyrants that entered the religion began with some hypocrites acting as companions who formulated the plan to masquerade the path of truth after the death of the Prophet, by plundering the seat of guidance from Imam Ali and establishing their autocracy on it.

Thus the first tyrant dictator ruled the Muslim nation under the institution of Caliphate, and in order to justify his past actions and pave the path to a viable future of this tyrannical establishment, the first dictator began to architect his plan of blending the truth with falsehood and began inventing such ideas that not only justify their actions, but also cover their evil personality under the Dishdasha of sacredness.

The tower of corrupted doctrines became the sacred house, and the Muslim community formed a human chain to guard it from any criticism and to protect its founders and beholders. The corruption and the unchaste ideology of the hypocrites of Islam that breeds in the minds of Muslims is like a curtain that blinds them from recognizing truth from falsehood, justice from tyranny, spirituality from materialism, light from darkness, and guidance from ignorance. In the spirit of defending and furnishing the evil ideology, the Muslims had no choice but to accept the dictators, the aristocrats, the kings and despots as the vanguards Islamic nation. The King of Saudi Arabia, the Emir of Kuwait, the Sultan of Oman, the Khalifa of Bahrain or the Sheikh of UAE have many things in common – but the most prominent of them is that they are the absolute dictators of their nation, and they suppress their people in their own ways. Their common aim is to conceal the path of truth and hinder the people from reaching to the reality of their religion. They are following the path that was paved by the hypocrites of Islam of blending the truth with falsehood.

If today the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) leaders are suppressing their own people, then that act of oppression is a manifestation of an ideology that belied the words of Allah and His messenger – an  ideology that hindered the path of truth by concealing the trail of truth, an ideology whose founders have taken a small price and an insignificant material gain in exchange of the words of Allah, and an ideology where fear of Allah is replaced by the desire of aristocracy, social status, power, authority, ego and a mountain of wealth built on the graves of the oppressed.

When the people of Bahrain continued their peaceful demonstration with stronger determination, the accursed Hamad Khalifa and the leaders of the neighboring gulf countries began to panic. The cause of such harmonious anxiety is ongoing persecution of innocent civilians in their own countries. The wave of reforms sweeping the Middle East has already brought the patience among the people to a boiling point, but as soon as the innocent protesters were attacked in Pearl Square, the boiling pot began to overflow, and protests began in the eastern region of Saudi Arabia too. There is no better way to put it than to say that these regimes consider persistently oppressing innocent civilians to be a life-blood to their kingdoms, because if true believers are granted freedom, they will always gravitate towards truth and justice.

There are two questions at this time: what result is the tyrant expecting and when will the endurance of the protestors exhaust? As for the first question, the tyrant expects to annihilate every speck of opposition that threatens its position and to get away with it. These expectations are formed based on the force and wealth the tyrants have amassed during decades of transgression while overlooking their own ignorance that a short-lived respite is not a victory. The short-lived victory of the tyrant will come to end soon, either by loss of wealth, health, or force, or by the deception of their own partners. As the Qur’an says, “But the tyrants have no helpers” (2:270), and the blood of the oppressed will never smear in vain.

The people of Bahrain are being oppressed as we speak and an unjust war is imposed on them. They are driven out of their homes, women and children are attacked – the endurance of the peaceful protestors may exhaust and these words of Qur’an will echo in the ears of the tyrant forces: “Permission (to fight) is given to those upon whom war is made because they are oppressed.” (22:39) The endurance of the people may shift from peaceful demonstration to defending themselves from the Saudi force; it will be the call of the grand scholars, and every conscionable believer in the world will endorse the decision. The power of patience is more mighty and profound than the abusive and cunning show of power, and the oppressed shall rise from his pool of blood – but not to seek a “free election” anymore, rather to hold the oppressive hand of the tyrant and overpower them or at least die trying and seek the eternal provision through martyrdom. For, as the Qur’an says: “Those who leave their homes in the cause of Allah, and are then slain or die, on them will Allah bestow verily a goodly Provision” (22:58). Whatever may be the decree of the grand scholars regarding the people of Bahrain or regarding the oppressed in any part of the world, we shall all comply with it to the fullest. Please supplicate for the appearance of our beloved Awaited Imam (may Allah hasten his reappearance) so that falsehood is perished along with disgrace, because “indeed falsehood has to go” (5:27). In the words of Imam Zainul Abideen (peace be upon him) in his supplication for the People of the Frontiers: “O God, defeat their enemy, separate them from their weapons, pull out the firm ties from their hearts, keep them far away from their stores, bewilder them in their roads, turn them astray from their direction, cut off reinforcements from them, chop them down in numbers, fill their hearts with terror, hold back their hands from  stretching forth, tie back their tongues from speaking, scatter by them the ones behind them make them a lesson for those beyond them, and through their degradation cut off the hopes of those who come after them!”

Egypt Air deletes Israel from its destination list

Egypt Air – the official Egyptian airline – has deleted Israel from its travel destinations. The airline’s website no longer features the Zionist state among its flight options.

According to the Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth, “Israeli travellers intending to fly to Ben-Gurion Airport in Lod did not find ‘Israel’ among the Egyptian airline’s destinations while the capitals Amman, Beirut and Damascus appeared on the map; this is despite Egypt’s proximity to Israel.”

The newspaper pointed out that Egypt Air was the first major airline to remove Israel from its map of travel destinations and that both Turkish Airlines and Royal Jordanian Airways continue to maintain flights to the country. Until recently, Egypt Air scheduled four flights weekly between Cairo and Lod airport.

Air travel between Egypt and Israel was suspended temporarily following the Egyptian Revolution which broke out in January. Last year, 2010, saw a 27% increase in the volume of flights between the two states over the previous year.

“]Thousands of Turkish protestors greet the Mavi Marmara on its return to Istanbul [EPA

IHH, left-wing European groups plan to send flotilla this May, one year after another IHH flotilla resulted in bloodshed that prompted widespread international condemnation of Israel.

Israel will launch a public campaign on Tuesday against a plan by the Turkish organization IHH and several left-wing European groups to send a flotilla to the Gaza Strip this May, a year after another IHH flotilla resulted in bloodshed that prompted widespread international condemnation of Israel.

IHH activists aboard that flotilla attacked Israeli soldiers who tried to intercept it with axes, knives and iron bars. Nine Turks were killed.

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon will summon foreign ambassadors to the ministry today to seek their help in stopping this year’s flotilla, which is slated to contain at least 15 ships. The sailing date has not yet been finalized, but the ministry expects it to be sometime between May 15, when the Palestinians commemorate the “Nakba” (“catastrophe” ) of Israel’s establishment, and May 31, the anniversary of last year’s deadly interception.

Thirty organizers from 15 countries met in Madrid about six weeks ago to discuss their plans, which have so far been kept under wraps for “security reasons.” They also asked the governments of some of the countries whose nationals plan to be aboard the flotilla to guarantee their safety should Israel try to stop the ships.

Over the last two months, the Foreign Ministry has asked several governments, including those of Spain, Britain, Ireland and Sweden, to publish travel advisories warning their citizens against sailing to Gaza. Britain and Ireland have in fact done so.

When the president of Cyprus, Demetris Christofias, visited Israel about 10 days ago, the flotilla was a key topic of discussion. Christofias stressed that the order he issued a year ago banning ships from sailing to Gaza from Cypriot ports remains in force.

The ministry is far from sure the flotilla can be stopped by diplomatic means, but is determined to try.

Man dies, 130 injured in Jordan clashes

AMMAN, Jordan (AFP) – A man died and 130 people were injured on Friday as pro-reform protesters and government supporters clashed in Amman, prompting police to use water cannons to disperse them.

“Khairy Saad Jamil, 55, died today at the Prince Hamzeh Hospital” in Amman, a medical source told AFP without specifying the cause of death.

It was the first death since the outbreak of pro-reform protests in Jordan three months ago.

Another medical source said 130 people, including a policeman, were injured in the clashes. “Two of them are in critical condition,” he said.

An AFP journalist at the scene said police used water cannons to break up clashes between students protesting to demand reforms and government supporters.

Anti-riot police also broke up a protest camp for the students and arrested several of them, a security official told AFP.

The clashes erupted after around 200 government supporters hurled large stones at more than 2,000 young demonstrators from different movements, including the powerful Islamist opposition, urging regime reforms and more efforts to fight corruption, an AFP journalist reported.

Spots of blood marked the location of the demonstration next to Amman’s Interior Circle, or Gamal Abdel Nasser Square.

On Thursday night, government supporters attacked the young protesters with stones, injuring at least 30 people.

The demonstrators had complained that “our gathering is peaceful, but this did not prevent the attacks”.

“Does the king agree with such actions? We are Jordanians and we have the right to express ourselves,” said Reda Darwish, 20.

At nightfall on Thursday, police attempted to disperse the youths, cutting off electricity to the square around 11:00 pm, an AFP journalist witnessed.

Protesters said around 50 “loyalists” attacked them with rocks after the power supply was lost, adding that police who surrounded the scene did not intervene.

“We hold the interior minister responsible for this incident and we call on the king and the people to protect us from these thugs who are attacking us,” said Nihad Zuhair, another protester.

The students want corrupt officials to be put on trial and security services to stop interfering in their affairs.

“The revolution is happening all around us,” they shouted. “Jordan, your turn is coming.”

“We want constitutional amendments to have parliamentary governments,” said Alaa Fazaa of the Jayeen (We are Coming) group, adding the protests would go on until their demands were met.

The protesters, including some expatriates, have created “committees” to clean up the location and provide food, water and beverages as well as medical care to each other.

“I am here today to express solidarity with the Jordanian people and back democracy and justice,” Lise Olivarius, 25, of the ActionAid international charity, told AFP.

Since January, left-wing activists have joined forces with nationalists and the Islamist opposition in calling for far-reaching political reforms and an end to what they say is rampant corruption.

More than 200 supporters of the Islamist movement and other groups demonstrated after Friday midday prayers near the Israeli embassy to push reforms and mark the 43rd anniversary of the Battle of Karameh with Israel.

“The government and the regime should realise that time is not on their side and it is on the country’s side,” Said Diab, leader of the Jordanian Popular Unity Party, told AFP as the protesters called for the expulsion of Israel’s ambassador to Amman.

Elsewhere, thousands gathered in Al-Hussein Gardens west of Amman to express loyalty and allegiance to the king, dancing to national songs and waving large national flags and pictures of the monarch.


The Other Opinion we Need you all to consider !!

The Other Opinion

First: to all brothers in the Arab countries … it is impossible to judge if you

are not living the situation … so don’t take positions without knowing the

circumstances of this protest, which is not a revolution, as it reflects a

group of people in Bahrain and not all the people of Bahrain…

Second: “The revolution of the Egyptian youth” was a revolution of youth

with personal opinions, which was not influenced by any party (as opposed

to what’s happening in Bahrain. The opposition is divided into several

entities, each with demands ranging in intensity between the request of

the fall of the Kingdom and calling for a Republic and the claim for reforms

in the politics of Bahrain). Whoever looks deeply into those demands, will

find out how they are changing every now and then, with the opposition

requesting for higher demands.

Third: the disappearance of security in Bahrain. I was continuously

following the Egyptian Revolution and I did not see the Egyptian youth

attacking policemen, blocking streets, calling for civil strikes or causing

chaos in schools and universities. None of them went to the areas of

supporters of the Government system (that is if there were a few of them)

with the intention of provocation!! Let us not forget that for every action

there is a reaction, so it is illogical to play with fire and then blame the fire

for any burns!

Fourth: It is true that the revolution in Egypt affected the tourism sector

in the country, as in Bahrain!! But the paradox here is that protestors

completely refuse the presence of any foreigner in Bahrain, whether for

business or tourism. They intimidate and even attack them, which lead

to the death of one resident yesterday just for being a foreigner!! Didn’t

he have a soul? Doesn’t he have any family? My religion is Islam, which

states that any spirit is created by God, which does not deserve to be killed

without reason! Imagine my fellow Egyptians, Libyans, Tunisian, or other

nationalities to be in a state in which a so called revolution takes place

and you are the one who’s killed intentionally because your roots doesn’t

belong to that country with a view!! What is your reaction!

This protest started illegally. Yes, the protestors did not get an approval

from the Ministry of Interior Affairs as required by law. Yes, they started

the demonstration using Molotov bombs against the police from the first

day. There were casualties. Isn’t there a reaction for every action? Were

they expecting the policemen to stand still in front of those people?

Fifth: Look at the history of these protestors and their violation of human

rights and national identity by burning some Asians in a restaurant, burning

a police car with a policeman inside. Didn’t they continue burning tires

since the nineties to this day? How do you want to police not to take action

when their lives were threatened??? They will say: what about the souls

of the protestors??? Whoever declares that he wants to die and follow

what is being said to him that this process is martyrdom let him accept the


Six: When this started, which was allowed by the Crown Prince, to protest

in one of the most important and vital areas with demands of living and

on top of the list was “Naturalization”?? Where is our Islam and our

religion from all this??? Our Prophet (Peace be upon him) that there is

no difference between anyone Arab and non-Arab, white or black, but

by piety. If they do not want these newly naturalized and who proved

that they are grateful and who have maintained the safety and security

throughout the years, then the naturalization of everyone should be

canceled including those who got their nationalities in the fifties, who

immigrated from the villages of Iraq, and some families from Iran and those

who do not know any other land but Bahrain! Will they agree to that?

Seven: Where are the peaceful aspects of their case??? Where is the whole

case?? Wasn’t it an issue of poverty?? Wasn’t it an issue of martyrs?? Go

and see how they turned the GCC roundabout to a “Carnival”??? Sheesha,

food and fun all night!!! Are those people supporting a read cause??? They

didn’t stop there, they even acted as policemen and appointed some of

them at some inspection points searching anyone they desire!!! That’s

not all, they even blocked the streets and open them as they wish!!!! They

didn’t stop there!!! They arranged daily marches that disturbed the traffic

and disrupted the security of the majority of the people who reject the

manifestations of this protest!!! Don’t we have the right to demand for

our freedom, security and safety??? Or the claims are exclusive to them??

Please pay very close attention, we saw the demands from the beginning

and we do not deny that we agreed with some of them … but the quick

escalation that took place in Bahrain’s crisis, showed the hidden intentions.

How can the claims for housing and increase the standard of living change

to the fall of the Government system? This was also demanded through

illegitimate ways. Whoever follows the events will notice the distortion and

lies, partial facts and invasion of the Central Hospital of Bahrain with news

broadcasts from inside the hospital!! Did any of those unethical actions

took place in Egypt or Tunisia? Did any doctor or teacher violate their oath?

Wouldn’t this destroy the country!!

Eight: They went to extremes when they declared the civil disobedience

by not going to schools for teaching, by exclusively providing only the

roundabout people with hospital treatment, by protesting in schools and

kindergartens forcing the kids to shout with slogans they don’t know it’s

alphabetic??? Isn’t it a violation of kids’ rights??? Isn’t it a shame to violate

the sanctity of girls in schools??? Isn’t it a disgrace to violate the sanctity

of the university campus??? Isn’t forcing people to do what they –this

troop- want, a violation of people’s rights??? They –this troop- force us

not to reach work!!! They force us to remain at home! They stole security

and stability for the sake of illusive demands they didn’t even write in an

official declaration!!! What are these demands that make them get out in

rallies seeking the death of the King; disregarding our feelings??? Where

are the legitimate demands??? Excuse me .. there is no way to convince

a sane-man that what this minority troop do is an act of people who love

their country!!! Regardless of all that, their teasing and provocative acts

during the previous period forced us to make civil committees to protect

our dignity and preserve the security in our areas!! Is this fair???


Nine: They want Bahrain to be an elective republic??? Where is their

historical and political education and knowledge??? Didn’t they accept

to pledge allegiance to the king in the year 2001 with a percentage

of 98.4%??? They can’t deny the legitimate measures taken in the

parliamentary council where they are presented by “Ali Salman”; the

chameleon, who didn’t present a single complete file for an issue and

suggestions to change legislations and rules along his membership

period!!! Who among them has an experience to manage a country???

The GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) economy is connected and Bahrain’s

economy depends on Abu Sa’fah oil well which is owned by Kingdom of

Saudi Arabia to whom we are thankful as it provides us with 80% of this

well’s production! Do they –the opposition- think that if they get the

governance the kingdom, Saudi Arabia would continue to finance Bahrain

with these incomes?? Do you know why it wouldn’t??? Because they are

Iran’s allies!! All their masks have fallen and their intentions have been

revealed!!! We have said our word in the gathering of national unity -and

I didn’t see any neutral TV channel showing this first unique gathering- we

don’t want to be a governorate following Iran!!! And for your information,

we represent a nation and they represent a sect in this nation and if they

want to coexist they have to undergo the demands of the majority and if

they don’t like the regime in Bahrain, then let them choose wherever they

want of God’s large land!!!

Ten: The Peninsula Shield is the only solution to deal with whoever lives a

wildly life which lacks rules; pretending that this way of life is the

freedom!!!! Yes, we don’t want things to reach this far, but who wreaked

havoc in the land, and demanded things that don’t present the whole

nation’s will? Who stole our freedom? Who occupied areas of Bahrain and

forced his own rules? Who doesn’t want peace? Who didn’t listen to the

voice of intellect when the crown prince ordered for calmness and asked

for dialogue that has no roof??? Who continued performing, putting

himself at risk; ignoring all the warnings that the security forces want to

preserve order??? Who attacked the unarmed policemen??? After all that,

they don’t want injuries??? Just to let you know, the procedures taken by

the Kingdom of Bahrain are not so different from those taken by most

developed democratic countries. Did you forget the students’

demonstrations in the United Kingdom?? You blame us for seeking help

from The Peninsula Shield???? And when we use our interior forces, they

throw themselves into doom and show those video tapes in other satellite

channels!!! And to all those who said that The Peninsula Shield Forces are

Foreign Forces, did you forget that we are part of the GCC (Gulf

Cooperation Council)?? Did you forget the famous slogan “our Gulf is one,

and our fate is one”?? Why they didn’t say so when the forces were

involved in liberating Kuwait??? Originally, there are deals ruled by the

union of GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) and these deals and contracts are

internationally acknowledged, thus these forces are national forces not

foreigners!!! For those who said why the military wasn’t sent to defend

Palestine, I reply and say why those protestors who seek martyrdom didn’t

go to defend Palestine????

i request any one who is interested in helping the Opressed Bahraini (sunnis are SUffering more , cant tell u how much the expats are suffering here )please come to bahrain and Talk to both sides … this request is for human rights alone and not the armies or nato (we want them to stay out of our lives we have seen them cause destruction !! and dont want it in our country !! Faiza ,Bahrain

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas, five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in Africa. For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims. Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the Muslims put together.

Ever wondered why?

Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and TIME magazine’s ‘Person of the Century’, was a Jew. Sigmund Freud — id, ego, superego — the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew. So were Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman and the list goes on.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enriched the whole humanity: Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. Alert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine. Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia fighting drug. Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B. Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis (a sexually transmitted disease). Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases and the list goes on.

Question: So, why are Jews so powerful?

Answer: Education.

Why are Muslims so powerless?

There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the planet; one billion in Asia, 400 million in Africa, 44 million in Europe and six million in the Americas. Every fifth human being is a Muslim; for every single Hindu there are two Muslims, for every Buddhist there are two Muslims and for every Jew there are one hundred Muslims. Ever wondered why Muslims are so powerless.

Here is why: There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together have around 500 universities; one university for every three million Muslims. The United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407. In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an ‘Academic Ranking of World Universities’, and intriguingly, not one university from Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.

As per data collected by the UNDP, literacy in the Christian world stands at nearly 90 per cent and 15 Christian-majority states have a literacy rate of 100 per cent. A Muslim-majority state, as a sharp contrast, has an average literacy rate of around 40 per cent and there is no Muslim-majority state with a literacy rate of 100 per cent. Some 98 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world had completed primary school, while less than 50 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world completed primary school did the same. Around 40 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world attended university while no more than two per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world attended university did the same.

Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per million. In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is 35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs (in the Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one million). Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on research and development, while the Christian world spends around five per cent of its GDP.

Conclusion: The Muslim world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge.

Daily newspapers per 1,000 people and number of book titles per million are two indicators of whether knowledge is being diffused in a society. In Pakistan, there are 23 daily newspapers per 1,000 Pakistanis (they are the ones that want to reinstate the law to persecute a ‘raped’ women for adultary) while the same ratio in Singapore is 360. In the UK, the number of book titles per million stands at 2,000 while the same in Egypt is 20.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to diffuse knowledge.

Exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports are an important indicator of knowledge application. Pakistan’s exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports stands at one per cent. The same for Saudi Arabia is 0.3 per cent; Kuwait, Morocco, and Algeria are all at 0.3 per cent while Singapore is at 58 per cent.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless? Because we aren’t producing knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless? Because we aren’t diffusing knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless? Because we aren’t applying knowledge.

And, the future belongs to knowledge-based societies.

Interestingly, the combined TOTAL annual GDP of 57 OIC-countries is under $2 trillion. America, just by herself, produces goods and services worth $12 trillion; China $8 trillion, Japan $3.8 trillion and Germany $2.4 trillion (purchasing power parity basis).

Oil rich Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Qatar collectively produce goods and services (mostly oil) worth $500 billion; Spain alone produces goods and services worth over $1 trillion, Catholic Poland $489 billion and Buddhist Thailand $545 billion (Muslim GDP as a percentage of world GDP is fast declining).
