Behind a Storm of Blood...

A genocidal tsunami, a Jewish, Zionist tsunami of violence, arrogance, lies, deceit, hypocrisy, racism, apartheid, oppression, repression, brutality, bestiality, tyranny, terrorism, sociopathy, psychopathy, evilness, moral depravity, hideousness, savagery, barbarity, backwardness, inhumanity and you can add your own...add it to the list.

Nothing, no word, describes the deep ugliness of the Jewish state of Israel. Nothing at all...

Last week, 91% of the "chosen" ones in Israel, were in favor of the Gaza carnage, today the ratio went up to 95%. That leaves 5% of the Jews in Israel against this holocaust. So much for a Jewish conscience!

We are on the 22nd day of the Gaza massacres. Piles of bodies, piles of injured, piles of flesh, piles and piles...Auschwitz revisited? No, worse than Auschwitz, much worse, from the so-called "only democracy" in the Middle East.
The Americans turned Iraq into a similar "democracy", lest you have forgotten.

But tonight, I do not wish to talk about the carnage in Gaza. I am sure many of you read about it, extensively and watched it on your TV screens, or one would hope you have. And am not so sure that the Western media/press is giving you a full picture. Of course, they don't want to ruffle the sensitivities of their Western viewers, because, my oh my, you are such a sensitive people.

For my part, I did manage to watch Western media, the BBC, CNN and Al Jazeera English, nothing in comparison to the Arabic speaking media. So subdued, and so
"objective". My stomach could not take it.

And since am on the subject of the media, I will have to ask Al Jazeera English to stop hiring those disgraceful American and English anchors, recycled from CNN and BBC. If we want to watch that kind of crap, we know how to switch channels, thank you very much.

But again, this is not really my topic for tonight.

My topic is the masquerade, the circus, the carnival, called the Arab world.

I will start with the alleged Qatari initiative. I am quite displeased actually. Qatar's role is far from being a begnin, altruistic mediator as it claims to be.
And Al-Jazeera Arabic is towingthe Qatari line way too much, for obvious reasons.

Qatar clearly wants to present itself as the nationalistic, pro-Palestinian Resistance, Arab country - a similar role it played in the aftermath of the Israeli aggression on Lebanon in 2006. And hence trying to demonstrate to the Arabs that Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority of M.Abbas are at best "anti Palestinian" and at worst official collaborators with the Zionist entity in the Gaza massacres.

I will get to the other Arab roles, such as Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, , Jordan, Iraq, and the Palestinian Resistance, as represented by both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas further on.

But let's take it one step at a time…and one country at a time...

Tzipi Livni was in Qatar not so long ago. In fact Qatar and Israel have had cordial relations to say the least. An Israeli bureau was opened in Qatar and stayed open during the Israeli war on Lebanon in 2006. Today Qatar urged Egypt and Jordan to severe diplomatic ties with Israel, while it will "freeze" any bilateral activities between Israel and itself.

The same came from Mauritania, who will "freeze" diplomatic relations until a cease fire agreement is reached between Israel and Hamas via Egyptian and Turkish mediation. And a cease fire will be reached soon. All indicators point to that.

Syria also urged Egypt and Jordan to severe diplomatic ties with Israel,conveniently forgetting all the secret diplomatic talks it has been conducting with Israel in Istanbul and forgetting its insistence on an American participation in any future peace talks with the Zionist entity.

As for Lebanon - besides the fiery speeches of Hassan Nasrallah, which really amount to nothing, as in zero action on the ground - Lebanon is clearly in the Qatari/ Iranian camp again for obvious reasons.

Iraq under American occupation, and ruled by both puppets - the Kurdish Zionists, such as M.Barazani who stated in 2006 that he welcomed the idea of opening an Israeli embassy in Hewar, "Kurdistan" and the sectarian Shias from Iran - is also clearly in the Qatari/Iranian camp. And since am on the subject of the sectarian Shias, I need to remind everyone what the sectarian Shiites militias of the Mahdi army, Badr Brigades and the Dawa did to the Palestinians in Iraq – a genocide on a smaller scale - bringing down the Palestinian population in Iraq from 35'000 to less than 7'000.

Also present at the Qatari carnival and sitting on the first row were the President of Senegal, some representative from the Comoro Islands and of course Ahmadinejad.

On a side note, what has the President of Senegal got to do with an Arab summit on Gaza is still beyond me.

Now let's get to Iran. Twenty day ago, Ayatollah Khameini issued a Fatwa, forbidding any Iranian to fight in Gaza. This is a fact. Three days ago, Ahmadinejad, on the one hand, heavily criticized the Saudi/ Egyptian role as ineffective, anti -Palestinian, anti-Resistance, yet at the same time said in a press conference, in reply to a question by an Al-Hayat journalist, that he " saw no necessity for any military/armed intervention from any country in helping the Palestinian Resistance (Hamas) as this latter was very capable of conducting its own fight, alone." Something that Nasrallah faithfully echoed and something that Khaled Misha'al from Hamas repeated today during his speech at the Qatari summit.

(A short parenthesis to keep in mind - I also need to remind the reader, that it is the Bush administration, according to the official version at least, who urged Israel not to show any belligerency against Iran. By now you know why, don't you? A quick review of who currently rules Iraq will undoubtedly refresh your "insight" )

I know this post might prove to be a long one, but bear with me, because things are not always what and how they seem to appear...

Egypt on the other hand is stuck. And so is Jordan.

Both of these countries have peace treaties with Israel. Strategically speaking, annulling these peace treaties would mean a state of war.

And am telling you, today, as it stands, NO Arab country and NO Middle Eastern country including Turkey and Iran are willing to wage a war against Israel. Take that as a FACT. However much displeasing, disappointing, this cold FACT may be to some.

Saudi Arabia on the other hand, is dealing with several issues on different fronts but all related. First its dwindling role and the rise of Iran (and Qatar) as an "alternative" regional (and sub-regional) powers. Secondly, Iranian harassment and fear of sectarianism in its own territory with a sizeable Shia population in its eastern region. Thirdly, its vulnerable position as a so-called "producer of terrorists", following 9/11, hence its need to remain vigilant against any political faux pas... Fourthly, its own internal domestic politics, where the ruling family is holding onto power through all means possible...and this is not going to be a treatise on Saudi Arabia. So I shall stop here.

I am aware I have not touched upon the Yemeni, UAE, Libyan, Moroccan, Tunisian, Algerian roles, as I do not find them to be major players in this particular episode of the Arab circus, carnival, rift and the totally chaotic political mess we currently find ourselves in.

The question to pose, however, is the following: What is Israel hoping to achieve through its blatant genocidal acts on Gaza?


And this is exactly what the Gaza massacres have politically accomplished for Israel.

Israel will NOT do away with Hamas. It is hoping to shrink it to a manageable size, and as one political commenter said, "it just wants to extract its teeth" and leave it toothless, so to speak.

Israel will keep Hamas because Israel NEEDS the division in all of the Palestinian movement/resistance.

Israel's long term strategy is to produce not two states - one for the Israelis and one for the Palestinians - but to produce CANTONS. The canton of Ramallah and the canton of Gaza and more cantons if it can...

If you wish, you may call it the balkanization of the IDEA of the State of Palestine. Sounds familiar, no? Just like the balkanization of the state of Iraq.

Furthermore Israel wants to do away with the idea that the Palestinian cause is first and foremost an ARAB cause. And the current IDEOLOGICAL impasse in the Palestinian Resistance (both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas) is achieving just that - diluting the idea that the Palestinian cause is first and foremost an Arab cause. While Iran, supposedly a supporter of Hamas, loves repeating the contrary.

And I agree with Azmi Bishara, a Palestinian, who likes to call himself an ARAB thinker, when he said " If it were not Palestine, as a geographical location, Zionism would find any other Arab country to what happened to Palestine as in the Nakba, would have happened and will happen to the rest of the Arab countries..."

Grosso modo, this is Israel's policy towards any anti-Zionist country/movement.
And who is left as an anti-Zionist entity/movement in the Arab world after the fall of Baghdad/Iraq but the Palestinians themselves?!

Let's have a look now at the Palestinian leadership itself, both as represented by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.

Both agree on:

- an immediate cease fire.
- complete withdrawal of the Israeli army
- immediate lifting of the blockade and siege of Gaza.
- Israel is to pay compensation for the havoc and destruction it caused

The only point of disagreement is the following: Who will control the borders of Gaza ?

Hamas insistence on controlling the borders of Gaza means in effect Hamas's declaration that Gaza is an autonomous state separated from the rest of the West Bank and under the control of Hamas alone.

So what will happen to the Palestinian political unity then? What will happen to political reconciliation between the different Palestinian political factions ? What will happen to the overall Palestinian movement, resistance and cause ?

Gone to the winds...And this is exactly Israel's objective.

Iran is encouraging Hamas in that direction, as made evident in the speech of Khaled Misha'al today. Iran also wants the "balkanization" of the Palestinian movement - the split. The same way it accomplished it in Iraq. A leverage card to be played in favor of its own objectives of becoming a major regional power, surpassing Saudi Arabia and Egypt in its influence both in the Arab street and internationally. This is so obvious to me, and I still don't understand how can anyone not see it so clearly.

In that sense, Israel and Iran share a common vision insofar as the Palestinian movement/cause is concerned and a common vision insofar as the rest of the Arab world is concerned – its split and consequently its paralysis, as being made totally evident in the past 22 days.

And I shall reiterate for the hundredth time, had it not been for the fall of Baghdad/Iraq, and the genocide of 1 million Iraqis and the exile of 5 million of them...Had it not been for the total destruction/annihilation of the Iraqi state and its leadership, by Zionist American and Iranian hands, you would not see Ahmadinejad sitting on the front row in Qatar, and you would not be witnessing the further deepening rift in the Arab world and the "balkanization" of both Iraq and the idea of a Palestinian state. And more to come...unless...

But they achieved it in Iraq, the backbone of the Arab world. They set precedence in Iraq, and the Arabs watched on, and it is happening all over again in Gaza (a symbol for ALL of Palestine) and the Arabs are still watching on...while a storm of blood is inundating yet another Arab street.

I concede defeat and give up on the Arabs and the Arab world.

Me thinks this is more than a war on Palestine, as far as Israel and the West are concerned. Me thinks it be a war on Islam. I mean, look at what's left of your country, then there's the slaughter in Afghanistan, the Western governments probably can't wait for India to demolish Pakistan (and get a good portion of itself wiped out in the process), and there has been talk of war with Iran in the news; though hell knows if that will come to anything.

I wonder if this has anything to do with Islamic banking practises. I mean, the so called powers that be are dependent on usury; which is forbidden in Islam. On top of the resource stealing that the West does so well, whilst slaughtering the original, rightful 'owners' of those resources with much aplomb.

I really wish somebody would beam me/us up. These bastiches are sooooooo beneath me/us (That includes you, Little Deeer, and the rest on the same page.)

Excellent analysis! Your comments are always eye-openers. What is happening in Gaza and, the silence of the rest of the Arab world, is downright sickening. Hugs, M.
I heartily recommend NORTHSHOREWOMAN'S post "The War Crimes of Israel are visible for all to see" and watch the debate on GRITtv. Don't miss it--it's VERY interesting. Hugs, M.

I am not sure it was ever any better - the same tactics, the same slaughter seems to go on century after century: different players, same game. It it more than enough to make one sick of heart.

Your comments on Iran are very interesting - it is difficult for someone like me, not familiar with the Arab world, to understand the politics beneath the surface that moves the Arab world.

England successfully used the divide and conquer strategy against the Irish (and everywhere else and don't forget the Romans), pitting the Irish against the Irish, which conveniently aborted a national unity.

I doubt we shall see much improvement in our lifetimes. But I can't help to wonder, Could women have done a better job running the world?

One foot in front of the other anyway...on we go. We are not dead yet.

Thanks for your post.

The ashkenazis have a global agenda.

It is they that have funded revolutions and wars..and in many instances have funded both sides of wars..around the Planet.

They create divisions within countries and create divisions within regions and pit one side of the globe against the other.

They will use race, religions, ethnicities, social class, political ideologies and whatever crack they can find ( or manufacture ) to begin 'movements' within societies.

Rothschild: "red sign".....which the Rothschild Empire instructed to be placed on the 'state' of 'Israel's flag....a 'state' tha Zionist Rothschild created; a hexogram.

They will use the 'shia surge' to dominate the region and also move into Asia. They will not hesitate to throw even an Israeli ( a 'jew' )into battles to catch a bullet.

The Ashkenazi Zionist's proven tactic has been to play both sides ( as they did in France, Russia, Germany and they funded the South in America's Civil War ).

Who made Roman Empire crack open right in the middle?
It was not an Army, an idea,or the guy on the roof with a fiddle.
Who made Ottomans find themselves devoid of power and vision?
It was not enemies big or small, some sacred coalition or a fusion.
Every empire is a parasite, a proverbial tick on the back of humanity.
When they suck enough blood, they die naturally, that's their calamity.
Every bloated ego comes to meet its limits, ugliness and demise
Until then, presents a challenge to decency, demands compromise
Fear of death, scarcity myth and greed are in their service
Some stay dignified, some join them in the march of avarice
But the monster has no head, consists of many a soulless sheep
This world is just a stage, none of it is for the actors to keep
Soon the marching sheep come across a rift, plunge into an abyss
Then the history gives them their due, a judgment like Judas' kiss

Hi Layla,

Your political insight to the Middle East is creepy. You are always right.

You won't give up on Arabs. To give up would mean you give up on yourself. You're too much of a fighter to do that.

At the moment Israel announced a ceasefire, but the reporter added that rockets were still being fired from Gaza, which made the ceasefire tenuous.

Salaam ya Layla,
i read this on the 17th, 18 years to-the-day since the first US-UK assault on Iraq. And it got me thinking about many things.

When you say you "give up on Arabs and the Arab world", i hope you mean the governments and not the people. But then, how could any rational person have *ever* had faith in the lying, hypocritical shits that run Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the Gulf and so on..?

Your latest post elucidates all kinds of things, as usual. I did not know about the Khameini fatwa banning Iranian action in Gaza. But it's hardly surprising. Even a great many people that I respect are incapable of seeing Iran for what it is. Their wishful thinking leads them to call for Arab-Iranian "unity", oblivious to Tehran's real role as in the Middle East (i.e. Washington's silent partner)

But please, Layla, do not "concede defeat". The Arab world may currently be on its knees, but nothing is forever. Six years ago, whilst living in Bolivia, my friends laughed at the idea of an anti-imperialist, coca-growing union leader winning the Presidency. Back then, the idea of Bolivia (South America's poorest country) actually expelling the US ambassador would have been unthinkable. Yet now, the ambassador is gone, along with his drug-trafficking "Drug Enforcement Agency", publicly denounced for the gangsters that they are. And Bolivia (together with Venezuela) has taken the step that no Arab government has the balls to take - breaking diplomatic relations with the sociopathic Zionist State. Bolivia, by the way, has NOTHING to gain by this move. Like its proposal to prosecute the Zionists in the International Courts,it is a humanitarian gesture consistent with Evo's view of the world.

I've been recently watching Arab news channels at an Iraqi friend's house, and the footage from Gaza is beyond belief. As you suggest, "sensitive Westerners" would choke on their food if this stuff were beamed into their living rooms. Now, it's difficult to imagine that there could be any silver lining to the cloud over Gazan, but this massacre tells us something. Because for a nuclear State, armed to the teeth, and backed by a US blank cheque to carry out a massacre on this scale, signifies fear and desperation, not strength. Isarel knows that time is not on its side. It is losing its legitimacy in the eyes of the world. Nobody is convinced by their WWII "victim's mandate" anymore. And people are no longer afraid to call Jewish supremacy for what it is. So, insha 'Allah, Gaza could be the beginning of the end for the Zionist entity, and hopefully for some of the Arab governments too.

According to Lebanon's Daily Star:"Gaza is the tip of the iceberg in terms of the danger for Arab States...non-State agents are going to gain more influence (among Arab people) at the expense of disgraced governments and an inert Arab leadership."

So, the Bushite prophecy of a "New Middle East" may in fact come true, although very differently to the way way they had in mind.

In the Spanish-speaking world, we say that "There is no evil that does not bring something good with it".

If human beings can learn to grow out of their programmed, mechanical and pathological behaviours ( & obviously, some are more in need of this than others), then there *is* still hope.

Dearest Layla, lovely to see you back and thank you for this very informative post. Many of the same thoughts going through my mind, albeit, quite garbled. You've worded it all so beautifully.

However, as Burnin has stated above, there's no reason to give up, although the apathy in the Arab world (among leaders, not the masses) is downright disturbing. Perhaps, insha'allah, we are yet to see a Saladin-type leader arise from among the ordinary people in the Middle East.

Morgan, I think you're right on all points:

- the Muslim banking system is certainly a threat to the thieves and swindlers who profit from ordinary citizens; the supposed 'global economic crisis' being touted today is simply a means of filling up their coffers which are quickly emptying as a result of all the illegal wars being waged on innocents; in other words, ordinary citizens are paying for the greed of the murderers; the arms industry is laughing all the way to the bank as well. By the way, the horrors we have seen in Gaza, Palestine, are the same as what was done in Iraq, particularly the use of chemical weapons, only we did not get to see much of it - e.g., in Fallujah, Talafar and also what was done to Resistance when Baghdad Airport finally 'fell'. One needs to dig for the real news in one's pursuit for Truth.
- Islam is definitely a threat, particularly to the Zionists, bearing in mind that they've successfully managed to dilute Christianity to a point where it is unrecognisable. As a Catholic, I find the deafening silence from the Vatican, for a start, extremely disturbing over the past few weeks, when innocents were being slaughtered in cold blood. In addition, sheeple Christians the world over don't seem to realise that Islam is far closer to them than they know - thanks to all the anti-Islam propaganda. Don't forget how Christ and His Mother are described by those who hate Christianity. Therefore, Islam stands in the way of their evil goals to dominate the planet.
- The lust for the resources of the Middle East is no secret to anyone who views the world with open eyes.

There's so much that is revolting, it boggles the mind. One can only hope that God is vigilant, and that He will pass Judgement soon on the evil that pervades our planet. As the propaganda-fed world celebrates Obama's inauguration today, one really wonders what other horrors are yet to come. Because they will come...

In solidarity.

I wonder, You have analyzed the situation as a responsibility of every country around Israel, but what about the Palestenians themselves?
I sympathesize with everything they are going through, the lack of leadership, the corruption or the ignorance of those in power, the poverty and limited resources, but I just can't deny the fact that all the Arabic countries and particularly Saudi Arabia (Being a Saudi myself) has put some large sum in aid over many years,teh result of all diplomacy efforts and resources allocated as happening now should draw us more to the root cause of problem, over the past 50 years, very little was done the right way, all opportunities and resorces were lost or wasted,we need an agenda and a different attitude... It's time to start thinking logically about what we can and can't afford...
Congratulation on a lovely blog, I hope you can do with it what all the politicians failed to do...To bring peace and prosperity to our countries...

Excuse me Little Dear, but God, Vigilant?

This is the same God that walked into the Garden of Eden and asked "Adam, where are you?"

I guess he must have been resting, or something, and momentarily lost his omniscience, and thus had to ask where Adam was.

Oh yes, and as you are so obviously a Christian, where was he when his only son was dying on a cross and crying out "Lord, why have you forsaken me?" I guess his omnipotence must be somewhat questionable too.

Poor little Yaldaboath-Sacla, who not pnly deceives himself, but all his followers too.

Never fear, The Goddess is still in control.

Hey Layla, I see the Yanks have relieved their guilt feelings by getting themselves a new president who is promising change. Dammit, Yanks are eternally dumb.

The entry was good, but my only problem with it was this:

"Hamas insistence on controlling the borders of Gaza means in effect Hamas's declaration that Gaza is an autonomous state separated from the rest of the West Bank and under the control of Hamas alone."

No borders in the west bank, which is dissected right now are controlled by any Palestinians. Each village, each city is fenced, walled in or have trenches dug around them. Fatah sold the West Bank along time ago, sadly they are at a point of no return.

Hamas, legally has the right to control the borders of Gaza and even the West Bank. Abbas, whose term has expired, according to Palestinian electoral law has no right to be in any type of negotiation or sign any treaties. (thats if we agree that Hamas is the legitimate party in power, since they were elected)

The Onus of unity is on Abbas and his cronies, The Palestinian electoral law and constitution is clear on the matter. Israel is using Abbas and Dahlan to drive a wedge into the Palestinian resistance.

Hamas almost played this same role during the 80s, when the Israelis created them to divide the PLO.

Hello sweet truthseeker!

I did not read this your text carefully enough at first.. but when I did I got a very new inspiration to let the sword
(that is the political spirit) out, with a new boost of energy towards the goal.

But as I told you, to me anyway, and as it seems, even to other commentators, it is absolutely to early to concede defeat.

Cause a lot more is going to happen with the powers in the world ..

What is right or what is to become right in a future is depending on how much people in the world is
going to participate and take action for rightiousness..

But it will come..

Take care precious one

A Note to the Readers,

Hello and thank you all for your comments. As I had previously mentioned, my internet access is very sporadic for the moment and will not be able to reply to any of your comments on this thread or the previous one. Some of the comments I agree with, others I don't -- for various reasons. But I am sure similar remarks will pop up in the future and will be able to "debate" them at some later point. And the little time internet time I have, will be spent on a new post.
