From Baghdad to Gaza and back...


A bloody Saturday, a bloody Sunday…

The Jewish State, and don't you come up with your usual, anti-Semitism bullshit, this is what Israel calls itself. A JEWISH STATE - by Jews and for Jews only.
In other words, an illegal, racist, chauvinistic, Nazi state for Jews alone.
And the Jews, for the most part Zionists, and yes they are majority Zionists, including some of the so-called anti-Zionists, have not stopped their industry of lamentation and playing the victim...

Every time anyone points out at the criminality of this evil entity called Israel, the Jews sit and cry anti-Semitism. They will be quick to remind you of their Shoa, while they have produced 100's Shoas since...

While they sit and lament in their hypocritical ways which we are so familiar with, this malignant entity called Israel or the Jewish state has not stopped producing a holocaust everyday, in occupied Palestine, and beyond...

Iraq is the Shoa of the 21st century of which no one talks about. No one...No one has erected museums in its name and the mass graves are still being unearthed...yet a profound silence filled the stale air...and still does...

So I fully understand the rage of my fellow Palestinians...I have known that same silence for the past 19 years. Except in the case of Iraq it was even more deafening...

We lost over 3 million Iraqis since the "liberation" of that fief of slaves called Kuwait. And you know the rest of the story...even though I am not so sure you do...or am not so sure you want to know...or maybe you know but think not much of it...

You called it "dictatorship", "tyranny" and blamed the victim with lines such as the "Iraqis are incapable of uniting" and blamed them for the "sectarian strife"...

I suppose the recent developments in the Palestinian movement have clearly demonstrated that disunity and strife within, is a product of an Occupation.

Iraqis also experienced brutal embargoes and sanctions and survived for 13 years in silence...and they still live under an embargo albeit a different form of an embargo.

As for walls and ghettos, Baghdad has seen in the past 5 years, more walls being erected than anywhere else in the world, more aptly like nowhere else in the world. Each district is today a ghetto. How come we did not have ghettos under the "dictatorship" ? Does anyone ask himself/herself that question ?

Iraq is also undergoing a not so subtle balkanization that no one is paying attention to, or maybe you are but think not much of it.

The Kurds, that many so-called anti-Zionists and leftists have supported for years and still do (I need to remind everyone here that the Kurds are fully backed by the Jewish state and have been so since 1974 and by Iran) have their own state now. The sectarian Shiites, and most of them are, want their own all exclusive state too in the whole of the South and Baghdad as its capital. Something that is already taking place since those sectarian Shiites came on American tanks straight from IRAN. And Iran has been collaborating closely with the Americans in Baghdad to ensure that another category of racists, chauvinists and sectarians remain in power...Thus fulfilling the Zionist dream – the splitting of loyalties and the partition of the Arab world into small entities, starting with Iraq...

Israel and Iran are flips sides of the same coin insofar as the ARABS are concerned.

Never mind the political rhetoric, I look at facts on the ground not at political speeches and jargon for domestic and international consumption. I suppose, I can be quite cold headed when the destiny of a people is being shaped and see things for what they truly are, behind clichés...cliches that the masses are terribly thirsty for...

I have more to say on Iran and how it fulfills the Zionist dream, and as I mentioned it in my post "A long American–Iranian film" Obama will be asking Iran to assist his administration in the "war on terror" (the war on Sunni terror to be more precise) in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where the Afghan Resistance is making strides. And this is already happening or in the process of further talks with Iran...And as I also mentioned before, Pakistan has been framed and things are not looking good at all on that front...I am expecting the worst for Pakistan.

Iran will play an important role in another chapter of Zionist-American imperialism in the Muslim world as it had played it so well in the Arab world as in the case of Iraq...and continues to play it even during the latest carnage in Gaza.

Since am on the subject of Iran, I have to mention the speech of Hassan Nasrallah and for me he is no "Sayyed." I am afraid this "Sayyed" is one of the biggest political charlatans I have ever witnessed in my whole life. A clever one for sure but a charlatan nonetheless...And all charlatans are puppets for someone.

Hassan Nassrallah is the Iranian puppet of the Arab world. I listened to his speech, I was yawning...Nasrallah bores me because his oration is predictable, as predictable as that of any Zionist from Israel...

Nassrallah mentioned "the battle of Kerbala" not less than 3 times...punctuated with a quote here and there from Imam Al- Hussein, clearly turning his speech into a purely Shiite appeal...into an Iranian appeal...or should I say into an Iranian attack, and not so much against Israel. Actually, the bulk of his speech was focused on the Arab countries whom he qualified as collaborators in the grand American-Zionist plan for this part of the world.

He concentrated in particular on Egypt, in second lieu on Jordan and without mentioning names he also alluded to Saudi Arabia – these three being the collaborators in the grand Zionist-American scheme, but not the only ones, according to him. He of course excluded Syria... He did not mention IRAQ , not even once! I suppose he no longer considers IRAQ as an ARAB country...and with good reason. It is under an American -Iranian Occupation

He basically said that after Egypt, Jordan and some other Arab countries signed peace treaties with the Jewish entity, they encouraged Israel to attack the resistance movement in Lebanon (his) and now the resistance in Gaza. He urged the Egyptians to rise against their government, ARAB Egypt came out as the biggest villain in this whole hideous Nazi Israeli massacre...

And since there are no sizable Shiites in Egypt, what better way for Iran to cause another Fitnah - dissension there, but to use the anti- arab collaborators, line ?!

At one point , I forgot that Nasrallah was supposedly "anti-Zionist" since his whole speech was against the Arab countries who are collaborators… and as I said he spared none except Syria, and his own Hezb naturally and Hamas for good reason.

Need I remind the fake "Sayyed" that his wonderful sectarian government in power in Iraq was put in place by the grand Zionist American schemers and need I remind this two cents political charlatan, that they all landed from Iran to fulfill the Zionist dream from the Nile to the Euphrates !!!

Need I remind the "Sayyed" that his sectarian Shias from Iran, have produced an all Shia sectarian state in Iraq for them alone, very much mimicking the all Jewish state with its exclusive Nazi laws.

But in his typical sectarian, racist, chauvinist, ways, the "Sayyed" just forgot about Iraq and conveniently forgot that the previous Iraqi regime and Iraq as a nation, was the most dedicated anti-Zionist, anti-Imperialist country that managed to survive despite years of war attacks from Iran, America and Israel.

Need I remind the "Sayyed" that Iran collaborated closer than any other, in the destruction of the only anti- Imperialist, anti-Zionist entity that survived in the age of post-Nasser "Infitah"- Sadat style...And we all know where Syria stands today vis a vis Israel and the peace deal that has been brewing with Israel since the 90's in the back corridors of politics...

Need I remind the "Sayyed" that it is none than his own sectarian hordes that helped the Zionist Americans to try and finish off the Iraqi Resistance under the guise of the "war on terror and insurgents", a Resistance for the most part made of ARABS and Sunnis. And these same hordes closely collaborated with the dirty gangs of the Occupation in carrying out the most hideous genocide against ARAB Iraqis and the Palestinians of Iraq. Another Shoa carried out by the sectarian Shias and the Americans and Brits...But it seems that the "Sayyed" has a short memory.

Need I remind this "Sayyed" and all other "Sayyeds" that Iraq was the final fig leaf that fell, leaving ALL naked and exposed...So who is fooling who here ?


As for Hamas, I have nothing to add to the Palestinian resistance, except that I support any Resistance movement against this malignancy called the State of Israel or the Jewish State... And the Palestinians themselves are better apt to assess who represents them best...

However, I have a few words of caution here – the political split within the Palestinian movement is a painful reminder of what happened in Iraq and I have to say to the Palestinians the following – beware of Balkanization under Occupation. And I fear that from a one state solution, you have moved to a two states solution and possibly now will be moved to a three states solution.

This is what happens when one is surrounded by "Arab" collaborators and finding oneself stuck in the middle between Israel and Iran. Ask me all about it...as I said, Iraq was/is the fig leaf...

And my way out slogan for 2009 is simple : NO to America/Israel, NO to Iran –For an ARAB solution only !

Oh, but wait! There was someone who said that before me...But he was hanged just before the New Year, by none other than America/Israel and Iran.
