Interview airs in segment #3.
When the so-called Arab Spring took place last year, very few people actually showed any form of moderation in their analysis of the situation. Heated by the French Revolution-type atmosphere of the events, they displayed emotions ranging from euphoria, joy, happiness, etc, but very little in terms of careful examination of history and in terms of reflexion. A few media personalities and political analysts recommended caution on the contrary, and we have to acknowledge today that they were right. Dave Emory, a radio host and antifascist researcher for more than thirty years, was one of them. In a series of shows starting in FTR #733 through #739, he presented a whole collection of elements and connections that bring anyone studying this event to seriously put into question the official version of things. In effect, a careful examination of the so-called revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya show that there is virtually zero chance that any democracy could come to the light of day in these countries. Why? For a lots of reason, among them history, the type of Islam preached and imposed there, and the absence of significant civilian society structures. In all fairness, we have to recognize that his analysis was correct. You can access these shows below.
Last week, we learned that the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood will in the end present a candidate, Khayrat el-Shater, for the Presidential Election, after stating earlier that they would not. On Secure Freedom Radio hosted by Frank Gaffney, Diana West, a member of Team B II and of the Center for Security Policy which produced the marvelous report Shariah: The Threat to America, offered this week a testimony on how the Muslim Brotherhood was not only taking control of societies in the Middle East but was successfully infiltrating and coercing the United States. Parenthetically, we could add that they are doing the same thing virtually in every other western societies. To exemplify this, she brings the example of how the U.S. military is slowly being accustomed and acclimated to Sharia, in order to make it more compliant with all the requirements of Islam, to a point of humiliation. In effect, troops in Afghanistan are asked not to do anything that could « offend » Muslims, at the expense of soldiers’ security, and to turn a blind eye to pedophilia. In other terms, soldiers are expected to show « respect », i.e. obedience and submission to Sharia Law, and the result is an immense feeling of demoralization. (By the way, demoralization is the first step in the process of subversion of a society. For more on this topic, check this earlier post in which Yuri Bezmenov, a defector from the KGB, presents the complete process of subversion.) Lire la suite
Dave Emory’s FTR #337 continues the ongoing analysis of the 9/11 blitzkrieg that began in FTR #325 and forward. Among the many highlights of the show, we find Silvan Becker, a Verfassungsschutz Agent that was killed in Libya; the mention of a few publications that place Saudi oil in the midst of a political intrigue that prevented investigators and FBI agents to properly do their job in the 9/11 case; the project leaded by Unocal and negociated with the Taliban to have a pipeline bringing oil from the Caspian Sea; that Osama bin Laden was seeking to replace the House of Saud as the prime example of Wahhabism and that the Saudi chief of intelligence, Prince Turki bin Abdul Aziz, was his mentor; that Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia warned George W. Bush that U.S. policy toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was considered unacceptable. The show also presents other relevant elements, such as the role played by the Carlyle Group.
During these last re-broadcasts, Dave Emory explores the Al-Qaeda movement as a re-formation of Afrikakorps, the expeditionary force of Nazi Germany in North Africa, especially present in Libya, Egypt and Tunisia. The mission of Al-Qaeda, examined under that spotlight, is to incense Arab and Muslim populations against Israel, the British and the United States, in an effort to secure the oil reserves of the Middle East for the Underground Reich, the same way Afrikakorps was trying to secure them for the Third Reich. FTR #333 explores the character of Ali Hassan Salameh, apparently a CIA asset and operative of the Black September organization that helped to engineer the Munich massacre of 1972. His father, Hassan Salameh, played an important role in the Palestinian issue. A key aide to Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Hassan Salameh planned to poison the wells of Tel-Aviv. The goal was to create an uprising against the British to divert Allied troops. Fortunately, the operation failed. In this context, the Palestinian/Israeli question must be seen as a distraction to take the attention away from the real deal: oil. As Emory points out quite justly, even if Israel wouldn’t exist as a country, Arabs would still experience misery. Their suffering and poorness have another cause. There is something in their societies, surely due to their religion but also to the civilization itself from which they are the product, that blocks them from evolving and becoming prosper. Only the transformation of their minds and hearts will allow them to free themselves for this misery.
P.S.: Don’t you think that what we have witnessed during the « Arab Spring » resembles a lot to the events of WWII with Afrikakorps? Afrikakorps was present in Libya, Egypt and Tunisia…and curiously, that’s exactly where uprisings occured last winter. And the Palestinian/Israeli question used as a distraction while the real deal is oil… It seems to me that we are still where we were during WWII in these matters. If you replace the British by the United States, the situation in the Middle East is almost identical as to what it was during the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s.
This interview with New York journalist Don Debar offers a much more credible and more believable assessment of the situation in Libya than what we have been given by our local news providers. Debar was in Libya recently and the account that he presents here make a lot of sense. To begin with, Debar de-mythologizes the country that we call Libya by sketching certain of its social and political dimensions unknown to the vast majority of the western public. Libya, up until NATO’s military campaign against it, have had a social safety net that would make people jalous even in a country like Canada. In effect, Libyans have had free education, free healthcare. Every Libyan has had the right to own his/her house and there has been no mortgage. And there has been also a certain redistribution of oil revenues, something NATO and the « Allies » never said to us, the population. Libya, up to this military intervention, has had the highest standard of living in Africa. According to Debar, a 1000 miles of non-polluted beaches could be enjoyed by any citizens.
« Revolutionaries » of this war originate from Qatar. To this day, certain areas of Libya haven’t seen any rebels. Among other elements of this interview, we note that: Nelson Mandela credited Qaddafi for the help he provided to end Apartheid; Qaddafi had the project of creating the United States of Africa, which would have integrated its economy with the use of a currency based on gold; Qaddafi paid for a telecommunication system made in Africa. These elements seem to have entered into conflict with a project of NATO called Africom that would probably resemble a form of neo-colonialism. Lode Vanoost, former Belgian MP, expressed a similar opinion. See this previous article to get a hold of that. Excellent journalist and brilliant author Russ Baker also expressed himself on the subject in a terrific article that you can consult through this last post, here: Russ Baker on the Peter B. Collins Show.
Again, it is a great pleasure for me to reference the work of a great journalist. Russ Baker has been doing a terrific job for many years, and since the publication of his masterpiece Family of Secrets, he hasn’t cease to work, enquire, search for trails of investigation, for leads to be able to bring new facts or evidence to the light of day on subjects or cases of interest. Here he takes on the difficult subject of Libya. I must say that what he presents in this new article makes a great deal of sense. In a nutshell, the Libyan war has been planned and orchestrated by elements of both French and Italian intelligence. The whole thing began with Qaddafi’s protocol chief, Nouri Al-Mesmari, visit to France in October 2010. Under the cover of alleged medical treatments, he began talks with French intelligence to examine the possibility of taking Qaddafi down. Among many elements Russ Baker’s excellent article dwells on, is a project that apparently was concocted by the European Union to NATO-ize the Mediterranean, strangely reminiscent of the mare-nostrum contemplated during the days of the Roman Empire. Also, mining and oil considerations have played a big role in the Libyan « uprising » if you consider that Libya exports 32% of its oil to Italy alone. Europe has no source of oil that is local. They have to import oil and other resources from neighbouring countries.
I just have one element to add and I think it is important. One year ago or so, Qaddafi threatened Europe to swarm the continent with Black immigration if the EU didn’t give him something like 5 bn euros a year. He made this incredible demand, that sounded rather like extortion or blackmail, during a two-day visit in Italy. Also during this trip, he hosted two « convert to Islam parties » which infuriated the Catholic Church. No surprise he got toppled… So first, you can familiarize yourself by listening to the interview with Russ Baker on the Peter B. Collins Show and then read the entire article. I also joined the article from the Mail Online that talks about Qaddafi’s threat.
Lode Vanoost makes a pretty good assessment of the situation in Libya. In a nutshell, he says that NATO is not going to give up its position once Gaddafi has been removed. For him, we are witnessing the second colonization of Africa. While Egypt and Tunisia have seen uprisings by their citizens that led to the toppling of their dictators, Libya is experiencing something else. In effect, the « uprising » in Libya is led by armed gangs with the backing of NATO and with the use of military force. It has nothing to do with Egypt and Tunisia. He concludes the interview by saying, with great accuracy: « People or organizations who take power by violence are not really tempted to give away that power by democratic means ». Yes, indeed. And it has certainly to do with the advances of China in Africa that has taken place in the last years. The West is trying to protect its backyard.
