Henry Kissinger: ”In 10 years Israel will cease to exist”

November 16, 2012 1 comment

According to news reports, Henry Kissinger and sixteen American intelligence agencies agree that in the near future, “Israel” will no longer exist.
The New York Post quotes Kissinger word for word: “In 10 years, there will be no more Israel”.
Kissinger’s statement is flat and unqualified. He is not saying that “Israel” is in danger, but could be saved if just gave it additional trillions of dollars and smashed enough of its enemies with American military.

 

He is not saying that if elect Netanyahu’s old friend Mitt Romney, “Israel” could somehow be salvaged. He is not saying that if bomb Iran, “Israel” might survive. He is not offering a way out. He is simply stating a fact: In 2022, “Israel” will no longer exist.

The US Intelligence Community agrees, though perhaps not on the precise 2022 expiration date.

Sixteen US intelligence agencies with a combined budget over USD70 billion have issued an 82-page analysis titled “Preparing for a Post-Israel Middle East“. Read more…

There are alternatives to free market capitalism!

There are alternatives to free market capitalism!

Publication time: 14 October 2008, 19:19

The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990 was heralded as a landmark event in history; it was considered the wholesale rejection of a way of life and end of Communism. The post – WW2 world was dominated by the competition between the Capitalist free market led by the US and state intervention led by the Soviet Union. Francis Fukuyama considered one of the most important living public intellectuals considered the development of ideas to have ended in his ‘end of history’ thesis as there was no meaningful debate left between Marxism and the market.

 

The Global credit crunch more then a year on shows no sign of slowing down and has now reached boiling point due to the number of banks that continue to collapse. Comparisons continue to be made with the great depression of the 1930’s, as many of the conditions present in the current crisis were also present on the eve of the great depression.

 

Prior to the collapse of many of Wall streets titans in September 2008 various thinkers and free market ideologues continued to argue just as their free market ancestors did in the 1930’s and against mounting evidence to the contrary, that time and nature would restore prosperity if governments refrained from manipulating the economy. Western governments have been forced to throw their Capitalist free market blueprint out of the window and intervene in the economy like never before. Over $ 5 trillion in total market capitalisation has been wiped out since October 2007, with over a trillion of this accounted for by the unravelling of Wall Street’s financial titans.

 

This crisis is much more then a financial crisis, this has now been accepted by free market ideologues that played down the prospects of a recession and labelled those who did as doomsayers, talking themselves into a recession. Such thinkers are now in hiding with very few economists prepared to remind the world of Capitalisms principled argument, as the Economist reminded us all: “excess and calamity are part of the package of Western finance. And still it is worth it.” With consumer deposits, savings and jobs all at stake this crisis has well and truly brought into question the suitability of the free market and as one geopolitical expert put it: “as the details of the present crisis reveal, there are huge ideological fault lines making for chaos and a potential meltdown of the Laissez Faire financial system.”

 

There are three reasons why the credit crunch crisis occurred:

 

1. The financial industry created complex financial contracts like derivatives that would securitize and make money from all forms of risk, this included exotic instruments such as credit default swaps and subprime loans. Banks continued to sell debt to customers with little ability to repay them, August 2007 was the point when such debt reached bursting point.

 

2. The speculative frenzy that gripped both the American market as well as Europe in the purchase of real estate which continued to send real estate prices to astronomical levels.

 

3. Greed played a direct role in the crisis as it led to predatory lending to people that had little means to make repayments. It also led to credit ratings agencies to rate investments less risky than they really were.

Tragedy In The Sugar Factory in Syria

November 16, 2012 Leave a comment

 

This story was told by a Sunni girl named Aishah in a Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey. Complemented with the information from one of the living witnesses. … Date: 15 – 28th June 2011. Location: Jisr Al-Shughour Sugar Factory, North Syria, Sunni town, 20km from Turkey, Syrian border.

On 14th June, the forces of Bashar rounded Jisr Al-Shughour with the formation of the 3,000 soldiers and 300 tanks, to raid the town the next day, i.e. on 15th June. The latest leaked news from the town was, nearly 30 people were killed and buried in the Sugar Factory, and then the top was layered with cements. The following days up to 28th June, the news about the incident in Jisr Al-Shughour was covered up from the world. The news began to leak out 13 days later, on 28th June to be exact, when the army of Assad left the town to raid another.

On Friday, 17th June 2011, the generals of Assad killed more or less 30 youths and buried them in the Sugar Factory, and then layered it with cements. But when night fell, those generals did not find a better place to sleep and stay overnight other than this Sugar Factory, so they decided to use it as a base throughout the operation of the storming of the town. To enliven the situation, a sadistic idea flashed in the minds of those generals. They wanted some Sunni girls to get naked for entertainment! They ordered the capture of the prettiest girls in town who are named Aishah, as many as 20 girls.

“The first time we entered the factory, we were stripped naked and were subjected to harassment and became targets of abuse and beatings, and then those generals ordered their troops to stop beating because they want to savor our pure white flesh,” Aishah recounted.

“After a few days, I submitted to the rape. It had already become a part of my life. But if not using my body and I prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as serving tea and coffee, at least they put on a piece of clothing on my body. I hate being a naked slave. I just hoped they covered my body,” Aishah said.

“The abuse was directed at the name “Aishah”. And then when those generals were back from battle, they ordered us to make a line and lick their boots until they were clean as a gratitude to them. They said, they were going to kill the rebels and protect us from rape. They used to say, “Aishah….. Come here. Lick my boot,” “Aishah….. Bring me my coffee,” “Aishah….. Who is your Allah now?” and other very ugly things,” Aishah said.

“I already knew what to expect since I was being told that those arrested were pretty young girls. But I never knew they chose us because of our names until the next day when they started calling us all, Aishah, and harassing us with various ways possible, only then we understood what they wanted,” Aishah said.

“The first day, they injected something into my foot until we were unable to stand. I hope they would just kill me that night, yet they never injected us again.”

“On the third day, they killed one of the girls who went against one of the soldiers. They cut her nipple because she resisted them. And then we knew from the conversation of the army that they had raped her and then killed her and buried her along with ‘the others’ under the factory! This was to scare the girls so that no one else would think of resisting them,” said the surviving eye witness.

“We were scared, we entertained them, and we fulfilled their sexual wants, even in front of others. They did it to us even on the table while they were planning how to move their tanks to destroy our city. The only thing that used to make us feel comfortable was when we cooked for them. Of course we were forbidden to talk each other or look at each other. But we enjoyed good food since we cooked it,” Aishah said.

“After the tenth day, they arose and just disappeared. We were naked. We were alone in the factory. We dared not escape. We dared not ask each other whether we were already allowed to talk to each other or not. We were really scared. And then some men from our village we came and rescued us,” Aishah said.

“Alhamdulillah, I had a miscarriage and can walk better now. I still remember their faces, their names and their cities of origin. I swear to God I will take revenge. Only my brother knows the whole story, that is not possible to be told to my family because they will no longer recognize me as their child after the Shiahs raped me. No man will marry me because I was a slave. I will try to change my name and no one will know me,” Aishah ended.

Burma (Myanmar): History of Persecution of Muslims and Intl. Stance

Question & Answer:  (Source: Hut website)

Myanmar (Burma)

                                                                     
Kindly give us an overview about the political reality of   Myanmar (Burma) and the reasons for the terrible persecution of Muslims   there, as well as the regional and international stances towards it, with   thanks and appreciation.
Answer: Below is an overview of what is necessary regarding this issue.

1.  The population of this country is more than 50 million,   including around 20% Muslims who are concentrated in the capital city of   Rangoon, the city of Mandalay and the province of Arakan. 70% of the   inhabitants are Buddhists and the rest embrace Hinduism, Christianity and   other religions. Burma, however, recognizes only a tiny 4% of the Muslims and   considers the remaining Muslims as foreigners. Consequently, it works to   expel them and neither grants them the country’s nationality nor does it   recognizes any rights for them. Hence, they are exposed to attacks by   Buddhists, with the support of the government machinery to the extent that   they are being killed and forced to emigrate.

2.  The historians mention that Islam entered the country   in 788 AD at the time of the Khaleefah Harun al-Rashid, when the Islamic   Khilafah was the leading state in the world for many centuries. Islam began   to spread throughout Burma, when the Burmese saw its greatness, truth and   justice. The Muslims ruled Arakan province for more than three and half   centuries, between 1430 AD and 1784 AD. In this year, the kuffar got united   against the province. Subsequently, the Buddhists occupied it and wreaked   havoc in the province, killing the Muslims and shedding their blood,   particularly their scholars and da’I, besides looting their resources and   destroying the Islamic architectures such as the Masajid and schools, due to   their hatred and fanaticism from their Buddhist ignorance.

3.  There existed in the region colonialist division and   competition between Britain and France. The British occupied and colonized   Burma in 1824 AD, whilst the French occupied and colonialized the neighboring   Laos. In 1937, Britain separated its colony Burma from “the Government of   British India.” So, it became a separate British colony to be administered by   this government under the name “the Government of British Burma” and the   Arakan province was made subservient to this government,t under the control   of Buddhists.
