The Gates of Hell are wide open...

Welcome to Baghdad.

Today 12 innocent Iraqis, dead throughout Baghdad . A mortar hits the "fortified" Green Zone - only material damage it seems.
The "Iraqi" government will be signing a half a billion Dollars arms deal with America. The reason? The security situation necessitates more american weapons.
I guess not enough Iraqis are killed so far...
They really would like to apply Bremer's recommendation of bringing the total number of Iraqis to 6 million. "It is more than enough" he was overheard saying.

Welcome to Gaza.

Yesterday, 5 cowardly, criminal, nazi, Israeli air raids on Gaza. The last one was at 12 am (sunday). A whole family of 7 member killed on the spot. Carbonised bodies taken out from under the rubbles by "rescue teams" which are none other but the residents of Gaza.
Today during the day, more air raids and more dead.
Is it not enough that Gaza has nothing ? No infrastructure, no employment, no proper running medical facilities, no food, no functional sewage, no nothing. But to top it all off the exclusive "Jewish state", the "beacon of democracy" in the Middle East bombs innocent civilians in the middle of the night who have nothing and are left with nothing...

Welcome to Beirut.

Over 30 Lebanese soldiers dead in Nahr al Bared clashes with some obscure "Jihadist" group. 12 fighters dead. Meanwhile the innocent Palestinian civilians of Nahr al Bared camp are without electricity, no running water and under siege.

The following day, at 12 am to be more precise, a car bomb placed in the Ashrafieh neighborhood in East Beirut kills a 63 years old woman and injures between 6 and 8 innocent passers by. A commercial area that is filled with people on a late Sunday night.
The area is "predominantly christian" (I know you love this "predominantly" business.)
Today, another car bomb in West Beirut, the Verdun area, a "predominantly muslim" area, injures 6 innocent people, two of which are children.

Any link between all these events you think?
Do remember what I said in one of my previous posts "Despair".
"Neighbors" would love to see Arab speaking countries turned into tiny statelets.

Analyze it and interpret it the way you like. You may find handy explanations that fit your agenda and you may call it civil war, sectarianism, civil strife...
Call it what you like...The end result is the same.

The New Middle East of the New World Order is a bit like the Hotel California song by the Eagles: "You can check out any time you want but you can never leave"...

And the gates are wide open. Welcome, welcome...Welcome to the Middle East.

Painting: Iraqi artist, Mohammed Sami.

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time." 4

Since the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001, world events, and in particular in the Middle East, show a growing unrest and instability between Modern Zionism and the Arabic World. This is completely in line with the call for a Third World War to be fought between the two, and their allies on both sides. This Third World War is still to come, and recent events show us that it is not far off.

Analyze it?
What is there to analyze if you already said exactly what it is?
"The gates to Hell, wide open"
What else can it be?
What is happening to the Human Race?
Why so much suffering?
Why so many innocent people are not left alone to just live?
Is there an end to this madness?

Great painting too, and although it goes great with the title, perhaps the work of another Mohammed Sami, this one a Kuwaity, could accompanied this post, as his sculptures reflect the human torment and pain like no other I ever seen.

Salam Layla,

I agree that the gates of hell are opened, but not for the middle east. Rather, the gates are opened (literally) for those who have come to murder our children, rape our women, enslave our men and humiliate them, and steal our resources. What the criminals thought is an easy prey will be their own doom, and we will stand when the dust has settled while they will be nothing but a vile memory in history.

These scum are not the first, nor will they be the last...

"Did they not roam the Earth and see how it ended for those before them? They were more powerful than them, and they cultivated the land and they built in it far more than these have built, and their messengers came to them with the proofs. God was not to wrong them, but it was they who wronged themselves. Then the end of those who did evil was evil, that is because they denied God’s signs, and they used to mock them." (30:9-10)

Dearest Layla,
I too am overwhelmed, knowing my country has done so much wrong to harm you and those others. May God keep you and all you love, all of his children who are living through this madness, safe, safe.

O Lord,
you love justice and you establish peace on earth.
We bring before you the disunity of today’s world;
the absurd violence, and the many wars,
which are breaking the courage of the peoples of the world;
human greed and injustice,
which breed hatred and strife.
Send your spirit and renew the face of the earth;
teach us to be compassionate towards the whole human family;
strengthen the will of all those
who fight for justice and for peace,
and give us that peace which the world cannot give.
All: Amen.

Take care, and bless you.

Have you lost your belief in Arabism? Arabs make mistakes because they are unconscious and ill-informed. Neighbours and imperialists would love to see you hate you big nation.

On Iraq occupation,
USA is so ignorant as to stay there, occupying Iraq as our soldiers are spoon fed lies and inconsistancies in order to remain there, fighting, dying, killing, raping.
And for nothing.
Nothing in so far as the American people are concerned.
Gasoline prices now top out at $3.00 per gallon and higher and still the people pay it and ask no questions.
Over three billion spent on this insane occupation and there is no funding for the people left homeless by hurricane Katrina (over one year later), no funding for the people left homeless by the tornados that ripped through Kansas four weeks ago.
No national guards to clean up the mess because they are all deployed to Iraq.

All of this and so much more...
And no questions asked.

America deserves whatever it gets.

As for the rest of Mid-East. I simply don't understand.
These peoples have fought since I was born and I am 39 years old.

What a fucking world....

But we're all supposed to be thankful.
Yeah..........thankful and humble and appreciative.

jr, you are
Layla Anwar said…
lost here,

Can't comment on your nature call, but I think that piece of news you found whilst contemplating whatever belongs right where you found it...:-)
As for the Kuwaiti Mohammed Sami. Do not know of him and as a rule of thumb I only post Iraqi artists even though I am aware that other middle eastern ones are good too.
But I do need to point out one fact that most of the contemporary ME artists have either studied or been greatly inspired by the Iraqi Art School...
As for another manifesto, it will come in due time. I am letting things simmer for a while til their boil over.
That does not make a great cook though...LOL
Layla Anwar said…

Eversince you were born is an accurate statement.
Because even before you were born, and in 1948 to be more precise, this is when the troubles started.
1948 marks the artificial creation of the State of Israel. An exclusive, racist, colonial settler state put together by the Western forces. And since that cursed day we have not known peace.
War after war after war...
Israel is an evil entity. Not because it is jewish per se but because it is an overgrowth , a tumor that has rendered the whole ME body sick.
Layla Anwar said…
Salam Robin,

Thanks for the prayer, very much needed.
Take care.
Layla Anwar said…
Amre al Abyad...
By the way I have always wondered what your name means. I know Amre but what does Abyad mean?
I have lost faith in all the political rulers of the ME. I do not hate the Arab world, am just sick and tired of its complacency, irresponsibility, corruption...
And at the same time, I am very aware that People ARE TIRED. They are tired mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically, financially, politically, socially....
What I said to Ike is valid here too.
War after war after war....since 1948 it has NOT STOPPED. Not stopped at all. Can you imagine that? Can you imagine any western country in the world go through this and still have the capacity to stand on its feet and function?
or seemingly function?
The western world will not last ONE day if they had to go through what we have and are still going through. They will either commit suicide or end up in mental asylums. Mind you they are doing it already ....
But as I said , ME is hotel california song. You can check out but you can't leave. It stays inside of you all the time.
Layla Anwar said…
Salam Layth,

You must be my alter ego or something along these lines.
I do not have your optimism though but your words do have a hopef ridden soothing effect. Thanks.

Salam Layla

?? Al- Abyad means the "white", however, here it means the sword, as Arabs used to call the sword "Al-Abyad"....but how come ? aren't you Iraqi?. Is Layla Anwar your real name? do you speak Arabic?....................

I always think of you as a symbolic character. At times, however, i think you are real!

in my considered opinion, the only way out for the arab world is to employ the rope-a-dope, and when the opportunity arises, deliver a couple of quick jabs(jab-jab) followed by a stinging uppercut(BOSH) to finish it

Salamat layla,
May God, or whoever in charge these days bless and protect you, and give you limitless energy, fearless soul (always). And you always will rise above and overcome dificulties and challanges you may encounter. You are a unique woman.
By definition of "Gates of Hell" they are one way passage. Hell never forces anybody in, but once they are in it never lets anyone out.
Layla,keep the good work going.

Amre al Abyad.

Well I know abyad means white and of course I speak arabic - I did not think you would call yourself Amre al Abyad the white one ...that is.
But I did not know that sword, al sayf, is also abyad...or maybe it is the way spelled...anyways. Thanks for the clarifications.
Layla Anwar said…

I don't understand your english. Is that creole or something? jab jab , uppercut..blah blah blah...when will you learn how to write and speak proper english?

Hello and thank you for your words of support.
Maybe I should have quoted the song 'one way ticket' instead of Hotel California...Maybe next time :-)

Regarding"arabs make mistakes because they unconsious and illinformed. Neigbours and imperialists would love to see you hate you big nation" this is exactly what the US is doing to itself. Making mistakes because the US is unconsious and illinformed. Hating this big nation. Couldn't be better said. Is not it conquer and divide and then who wins?
