SaddamHussein: martyr for peace
- Saddam played the pivotal role in Middle East peace efforts and this
must come to light.
Hussein martyred for peace activism
For eight decades, Israel and its international Jewish constituency
steadfastly murdered all opposition to an officially
Jewish-Supremacist definition for Israel-Palestine starting even
before the `47-'48 ethnic-cleansing and advancing through countless
massacres and several wars of aggression against all Israel's
neighboring states. The flaming racism of the campaign was sweetly
denied by all who gain from Jewish advantage in Palestine, but the
subjugation of the bordering states finally allowed the root of the
conflict the openly racist ethnic-cleansing and perpetuation of
ethnic-cleansing the denial of non-Jewish Palestinian return to
clearly emerge from the false "complexities of the Arab-Israeli
Conflict, with its inevitable Arab-refugee problems."
Genuine peace activists (we very few who have, for decades, spoken out
against our tax-support for Israel's open racism) knew all along that
the core issue of forcing a Jewish state into a multi-ethnic region
would ultimately come to light and the entire conflict would show
itself as the simple violent-state-racism it is with all its
inevitable spin-off smashing of regional opposition to racist
invasion. So we held a high hope that the "anti-war" and "progressive"
world would eventually be forced to take a clear position against
racism and for peace. This moment came with the First Intifada: the
first time the Conflict was seen to boil down to its basic element
between the vast Zionist military and the innocent Palestinian
civilian victims of past, ongoing, and future Jewish supremacy.
Yet, for us, the First Intifada was mainly a discovery of just how
morally comatose the "peace movement" and "progressives" really are,
because no one seemed to notice, even as Israel's then-surprising
policy of live ammunition against stone-throwing children was reported
in mainstream media, along with films of Israeli soldiers breaking
children's arms. Still, the revolting nature of Zionism did reach
global media, and just when attention was at a peak, Saddam Hussein
made his move on Kuwait.
Perhaps the most significant and downplayed bit of history in recent
decades is the fact that Hussein repeatedly offered to leave Kuwait in
peace, his only condition being international peace-talks about
Palestine. This point absolutely must be understood, if one is to
comprehend the current situation, the role of Zionism in regional
conflict, and the grotesque festival-minded failures of the "peace
movement" failures which could be corrected if recognized. The point
is, the First Gulf War was a war, not to liberate Kuwait and certainly
not to steal some oil, but a war to punish Iraq for forcing the Jewish
State into peace talks about Palestine.
The "Coalition" depended on the support of defeated Arab nations and
puppet Arab governments, but the populations of those countries
naturally would not tolerate any support for a war to prevent peace
talks about Zionist ethnic invasion; they were so adamant about this
as to seriously threaten the stability of any government that ignored
them. So all the Arab members of "the Coalition" had to agree to
demand peace talks about Palestine directly after Iraq was decimated
for the crime of instigating them.
Those paying a bit of attention to this sequence were therefore
disgusted to see hundreds of thousands of "peace activists" suddenly
rising from their long comas and pouring out of the woodwork, all
excited about the promised "anti-war" festivals, and officiously
shouting the brutal "No Blood for Oil" slogan. Right. They had never
given a hoot about financing the slaughter of Arabs, but now that
Israel's enemy was not a bordering state, US troops would be required,
and God forbid that our innocent working-class "Blood" should be shed
for the "Oil" profits of the capitalists! It was like a prom with
nostalgic 1930s-socialist décor. Israel was mentioned only when
speakers praised the crowds for refraining from "Israel-bashing."
The real peace effort, instigated by Saddam Hussein for which Iraq
would be subjected to an extreme Holocaust for the next ten years
was actively ignored and erased by the Zionist US "peace movement."
Yet peace talks did stumble along, utterly hopeless of course, since
no Iraqi voice would be tolerated first in Madrid and then on to
Oslo and oblivion. The futility of that effort was assured by the
total disregard of progressives and peaceniks worldwide who all went
back to the sit-coms as soon as "our boys" started coming home.
The "social justice" social-clubs burbled along for the next ten years
with their quiet opposition to the murderous sanctions against Iraq,
still avoiding the one argument that could convince the greatest
number of ordinary Americans the sanctions' "linkage" with
openly-declared Israeli racism in Palestine. In this case, ordinary
opposition to racism would be too "radical" a position because it
would "divide the movement." That is, it would divide out the
controlling Zionists and allow the birth of a genuine anti-war movement.
So Oslo finally breathed its last in Summer 2000, and on September 28
International Zionism sent "the Butcher" to the Al-Aqsa Mosque to kick
off the long-awaited final takeover of Palestine and regional
elimination of all remaining anti-Zionist voices: the neo-con plan.
For the next three-and-a-half months, Israel's international
supporters murdered a total of 84 Palestinian children, in their own
neighborhoods and schoolyards, before the first suicide-bombing and
killing of an Israeli child by a Palestinian renegade virtually all
reported in mainstream headlines and all financed by Americans. Yet
the regular social justice club meetings continued to offer speeches
against the Iraq sanctions, without any mention of the racist
juggernaut sweeping through the West Bank and Gaza Strip, despite
daily headlines about it.
Amid this silent approval, the next phase was inevitable, starting a
full year later with 9/11 and renewed talk of sending US troops to
take the Zionist slaughter beyond Israel's immediate reach first to
Afghanistan. The peace movement dutifully pretended that "the war" had
not been going on all along in Palestine but was only about to begin.
And why Afghanistan? Because that's were Osama bin Laden was. And what
did Osama bin Laden say? He said it was all about Palestine. Again a
"peace movement" came pouring out of nowhere. Did it mention
Palestine? Of course not. That was still ignorantly dismissed as a
"difficult issue" which would "divide the movement."
If Palestine came up, the sequence of thinking ran like this: a
"two-state solution" is the only "realistic" peace option, because it
would please the many long-standing "activists" who "can't let go of
the idea of a Jewish state." And since "two-state" is a patently
racist solution, we are supposed to keep quiet about racism, rather
than take a "radical" and "divisive" position. The fact that a clear
anti-racist argument would appeal best to ordinary Americans could not
be allowed because it would "disrupt" the meetings by inciting some of
the Jewish leaders and members to shout obscenities. A viable anti-war
position was prevented, as protests asked ordinary people, not to
oppose racism, but to hate politicians and corporations. The anti-war
argument, neutered to avoid disturbing the racist juggernaut in
Palestine, obviously could not offer serious opposition to the rest of
the Zionist program: the wars against the insubordinate anti-Zionist
populations of Afghanistan and Iraq. Indeed, preventing serious
opposition to expanded Middle East conflict was the real purpose of
the Zionist neutering of the anti-war argument.
Whatever crimes Saddam Hussein committed as probably required for
his and Iraq's survival against Zionism he certainly was not
murdered for those reasons. He was martyred for his role as a foremost
proponent of peace and human equality in the Middle East and the world.
The Spectacle of the Noose
Sunday, December 31, 2006
Indeed we live in a global village, in a sealed monolithic ghetto in
which medieval pornographic images of barbarism travel around the
world at the speed of light for our consumption. Looped images of
executed Saddam have been looping for a day or so on every news
network. We are supposed to be cheered by the victory of `justice'
nevertheless we all know that whatever has been performed in front of
our eyes is nothing but banal retribution. We are well aware that it
has nothing to do with Justice. Not only was the trial a farce, if
there are persons who should be locked behind bars, they should be the
perpetrators of the war. We are now learning as well that we had
better admit that we had been deluded and misled by the notion of
liberal democracy; a modern Western political precept that originally
portrayed itself as a great promise. We have been clearly dragged into
some very dark era that will be remembered as a global manifestation,
a unique form of evil far beyond banality.
While Saddam is on the verge of becoming a martyr, his executors, Bush
and Blair, have already secured their place in the premiere league of
war criminals. It resembles very much the case of the Inquisition, it
is once again the executer who is there to be stained in the eyes of
future generations. Blair and Bush, the men who lied to their people,
the men who started an illegal war, the men who are, according to the
Geneva Conventions, liable for a genocide in Iraq on a grandiose
scale, have eventually decided to bin the notion of justice as well.
Considering their other crimes, taking into account: 650,000 dead
Iraqis, the total support of Israeli destruction in Lebanon, assisting
the Zionist crimes in Palestine, killing justice is indeed just
another minor sin.
But Bush and Blair are not alone. Like the medieval crowd who
assembled in town centres to stare at the angel of death, like the
Jerusalemite who gathered along Via Dolorosa to spit on Jesus on his
final march, we all gather together around our TV screens. We were
sitting to watch how `liberated Iraq' performs Anglo-American
`justice'. Seemingly, when it comes to the issue of the human
condition, two thousand years are no doubt a very short time. Humans
are still rather enthusiastic about the consumption of bloody images
The question that is left open is, how did it happen to us? Not that
long ago we all foolishly wanted to believe that humanity may have
learned its lesson and was transformed into something else, that evil
belongs to our past. How did we let these messengers of retribution
Recently I have come across the words of Leo Strauss, the ideological
founder of the Neoconservative school of thought. The intellectual
mentor for those who claim to know what America's new century should
I was myself a political Zionist in my youth, and was a member of a
Zionist organisation. In this capacity, I occasionally met Jabotinsky,
the leader of the revisionists. "He asked me what are you doing?" I
said "Well, we read the Bible, we study Jewish history, Zionist
theory, and, of course, we keep abreast of developments, and so on" He
(Jabotinsky) replied "and Rifle practise?" and I had to say "No." (Leo
It didn't take Strauss long to grow out of his relatively non-violent
beliefs. It was the reading of Carl Schmitt, the post WWI right wing
German political scientist who made Strauss into an overt opponent of
liberal cosmopolitan ideology. For Schmitt, "the political meant,
above all, that peoples are pitted against one another in a condition
of war or readiness for a war " Very much like Jabotinsky, Schmitt
and Hitler, for Strauss the essence of political life comes into play
within a conflict rather than within a liberal pacifist environment in
which `art' and `entertainment' are flourishing.
While the academic debate of whether Jabotinsky's ideology took ground
in Israeli politics is still raging, it is rather apparent that
Zionist right wing ultra militant philosophy that is not different
from German romantic, anti-enlightenment confrontational worldview,
has deeply taken root, not to say invaded, the current American
administration and its surrounding lobbies.
While Strauss was merely an academic, though a proponent of some
hardcore hawkish Zionist ideologies, his followers happen to be those
who design American foreign policy. It is slightly embarrassing to
admit that: `cultural clash', the emerging hatred towards Islam and
the Anglo-American current phase of expansionism are all ideologically
rooted in German right wing nationalist ideology that was carried to
America by the overt militant Zionist Leo Strauss.
Indeed, we live in a global village, in a sealed monolithic ghetto in
which medieval pornographic images of barbarism travel around the
world at the speed of light. The only way out of this vicious loop of
zeal is to de-Zionise our universe, to disengage from global Zionism
and we better do just that with no delay.

The Black Bull Died Today

So I was wrong. They did it. They gave this Ummah a sacrifice on the
day of Eid ul Adha. What an unforgettable Eid!! A human sacrifice. Not
a sheep or goat. What a message!! Wow!! What a powerful message that I
am sure has shaken all the thrones of the puppets who are watching the
events. Poor puppets!!
Saddam Hussain, they say, is dead. Hanged today about 40 minutes ago.
The news reporting below is one good example of the pimp press in full
swing. I have copied one line from there to show you why I call it the
If anyone who is not suffering from amnesia can recall, 'Weapons of
Mass Destruction' was a phrase coined by American foreign policy
experts to lie to their own nation and the world and justify their
invasion of Iraq. Then their lie was exposed but by then their
objective of looting Iraq's oil had also been accomplished. They had
control of the oil fields. And in the process a few hundred thousand
Iraqis died at the hands of Americans; well that is inevitable -
collateral damage. As they say Weapons of Mass Deception - which of
course the pimp press is responsible for and continues to perpetrate
on the world.
Saddam's weapons of mass destruction proved a bluff to keep the
Iranians, the Syrians, the Israelis and the Americans at bay. The
Sept. 11 terror attack on the U.S. focused attention on Saddam as a
sponsor of terrorism. His refusal to meet U.N. demands for full
disclosure of his illegal weapons program provided a justification for
As I said in an earlier post, death is not the "item" in the news. It
is the death of the myth of American justice and freedom. So now we
can all breathe freely as we see the true nature of the animal before
us. Even those who continued to insist on living in doubt can deny it
no longer. But watch out!! This news item and a million like it,
floating on the net or shouting themselves hoarse on the TV are all
focused on trying to make you and me distracted from the reality of
what we are seeing here. So they talk about how brutal Saddam was and
how many people he killed and how he 'started' the Iraq-Iran war.
The issue of course is none of those things. If these were in fact
issues, then we would see Bush and all his cronies and most of their
puppets sitting on thrones in their gilded prisons, swinging from the
gallows long before Saddam came anywhere near them. The issue is
America's right to invade a sovereign nation. Any country's right to
invade and occupy another sovereign nation and loot its wealth. That
is the issue.
Are we, the people of the world saying that it is the right of America
or anyone with the power to do so, to take by force what they want
from whoever they want? Are we, the people of the world, saying that
it is the right of the rapist to rape? Are we, the people of the
world, saying that it is the right of the bandit or the highway robber
to hold you up and take from you what he wishes by force?
Because in my opinion, by remaining silent, that is exactly what we
will be saying. You decide what you want to do. I have already made my
decision as you can see. The pimp press and all those who it serves
want you and me to forget these issues. And they believe that if they
make enough noise, we will.
Remember O People! The name of the animal is Empire. And you and I
have a choice. Sell your soul and bow your head in submission to the
King. Or raise your head and it will be cut off. It's as simple as
that. Freedom is as it will be defined for you. Justice is as will be
given to you. Democracy is as is approved for you.
If you elect Hamas as your party of choice, that is not democracy. It
will be sabotaged and ever willing pimps will be put in the place of
the people you really wanted. If you have any sense you will see the
writing on the wall and next time around you will elect Abbas. If not
the Empire has unlimited power, money and people to enforce its will.
All that will happen is that a 100 of you will die for every American
soldier who comes to enforce the will of the Empire. That is a price
that the Empire can and will extract. After all it did not get to
where it is today by being made of sugar candy, did it?
Resources are for those who can take them and use them. Where they
happen to be located is immaterial. Their owners are still the same.
Those who come in the way because they happen to be located physically
on those resources have a choice; move away quietly and maybe you will
even be paid something. If not, you will be moved by force...not
sideways...but 6 feet below. Now even the dumbest in the world should
be able to understand that, no??
But no!! There are those who are dumber than the dumb.
· They are those who believe in their right to determine how they will
live, by what code.
· They are those who believe that it is their right to live by their
laws in their lands without apology to anyone.
· They are those who believe in their right to choose who will lead them.
· They are those who believe that foreigners can't dictate to them,
who they should elect to their councils.
· They are those who believe in their right to use what they own, to
sell it to who they want, in whatever currency they choose to sell and
at whatever price.
· They are those who believe that it is the right of the owner of a
property to decide to sell or not and at what price.
· They believe that the buyer can't dictate those terms to them.
· They are those who believe that all humans are equal irrespective of
race, color or religion.
· They believe that a lack of melanin in the skin is not a sign of
human superiority just as a surfeit of it is not.
· They believe that if this life is to be lived, then it must be lived
· They believe that a death with honor is far more preferable than a
life without honor.
· They believe that enslavement is in the mind. And that until they
accept in their minds and hearts that they are slaves, they cannot be
enslaved. And such people will never be enslaved. No matter how many
What they don't understand is that every head that is cut off to
terrorize only strengthens the resolve that injustice must be removed
from the face of the earth. And whatever price is to be paid, is worth
the result. The plant of justice is fertilized by the blood of
martyrs. As I write this post I am reminded of the Arabic legend of
the White Bull: At Thawr il Abyadh
Once upon a time three bulls lived in the forest. One white, one brown
and one black. They were brothers and lived together in harmony. In
that forest also lived a tiger who had his eye on the bulls. But every
time he attacked one of them the others came to his aid and together
they drove the tiger away.
The tiger decided that he needed to change his strategy. So one day
when the Black Bull was away, he went to the other two and said,
"You know, the Black Bull is black and dirty and evil. Why do you keep
him with you? His is a disgrace to you. You are beautiful and noble.
If the Black Bull is no longer there, you will have all the grazing to
yourself. He takes away your food and adds no value to you." The two
bulls listened to the tiger's spiel and said, "Well, you know, he is
our brother. What can we do?"
"You need not do anything at all," said the tiger. "I am your friend.
I will do what needs to be done. Just don't come to the aid of the
Black Bull when he calls you." The others agreed.
The next day, they heard the voice of the Black Bull calling for help
in anguish and fear. They listened to him and went back to their
grazing. Gradually the calls stopped. The two brothers could not look
each other in the eye but then, nice green grass wipes away memories
and after a little while it was as if the Black Bull never existed.
Then one day the tiger came to the White Bull when he was alone and
said, "So are you happy with the advise I gave you? Didn't I advise
you well? Now here is another advise. You are the real king of the
forest. You are White and clean and pure and holy and beautiful. You
are wise and good. You deserve to live in solitary splendor like a
king. Not with some dirty brown trash who you have to share your food
with. Why do you need him? He is a liability and an embarrassment to you."
"Well, what should I do?" "You know the score. Nothing at all. I am
there to take care of everything for you. Just relax." Next day, the
White Bull heard the dying screams of the Brown Bull and closed his
ears and went back to his grazing.
The White Bull lived for a few days all by himself, grazing where he
wanted and drinking from the clean streams of the forest. Then one
morning the tiger came again. From the look in his eyes, the White
Bull knew that this visit was different. All his life flashed before
his eyes. He recalled the time when the three brothers stood together,
shoulder to shoulder. Then he recalled all the incidents since then.
As the tiger sat before him, not in any hurry, knowing that the result
was pre-determined, the White Bull said to him, "I have one last wish.
Will you grant it to me?" "Anything at all my friend", said the tiger.
The White Bull then climbed a hill and when he got to the top of it,
he called out to the people of the forest, "O! People, I do not die
today. I died the day the Black Bull died."
Sayyidina Ali (RA) when he had been stabbed by the assassin and lay
dying called the people around him and reminded them of this story of
the White Bull (At Thawr il Abyadh) and said to them, "O! People, I am
not dying today. I died the day Osman was killed."
I say to you: "O! People, wake up and mourn. Wallahi the Black Bull
died today. "
