For Putin, the illegal overthrow of Ukraine’s democratically elected and pro-Russian president — which he rightly labeled a “coup” — was the final straw. He responded by taking Crimea, a peninsula he feared would host a NATO naval base, and working to destabilize Ukraine until it abandoned its efforts to join the West…

Liberal Zionism: A Contradiction?

You cannot be a liberal Zionist. Why?

1. Liberalism entails a separation of church and state.

2. In order for Israel’s democracy to be established, it required the theft of land based on religious grounds (that might or might not have historical basis), which is a violation of human rights laws as well as the aforementioned tenet of liberalism.

3. Palestinians currently outnumber Israelis by 3,000,000 which suggests an apartheid-esque scenario – i’m quite sure this is incompatible with liberalism.

4. Israel touts itself as a democracy that is for all people, but the reality is that the concept of Israel is religiously tied to Judaism thereby making it insulting for non-zionists to accept such an unrepresentative and arbitrary authority.

5. Palestine is a secular creation that existed prior to the rise of Islam, that is not particular to any religious group whereas Israel is particular to Judaism.

CONCLUSION: it cannot be denied – Israel is a dogma and therefor is incompatible with liberalism and any form of idealist thought.

DISCLAIMER: the definition of liberalism does not vary; there are other labels for that; conservative, neo-conservative, communist, libertarian, etc.

Paranoid Androids

The existence of #Hamas and other militant organizations with a more radical message does not legitimize the existence nor the expansion of the state of Israel, partly because it is precisely due to the existence of this unnatural ‘zionist’ nation-state that has caused groups like this to prop up again and again and gain popularity among the impoverished, deprived and uneducated peoples of the Middle East. Israel has created an environment that breeds hatred, terrorism and extremism, yet blames the arab people. Furthermore, I would like to point out that no ‘extremist’ Islamist organization represents Islam or the Middle Eastern culture – they are hired agents of the West. If that is too hard to believe – if you dismiss that as some sort of conspiracy theory – then perhaps that implies that the political science degree awarded to me from a U.S. public university which provided the textbooks that taught me these historical realities is just part of this one big giant conspiracy theory too. There is political reality and then there are crazed conspiracy theorists…big difference. It seems to me like the biggest conspiracy theorists are zionists themselves – diseased with a constant paranoia that they are being undermined; thereby needing to create their own state and constantly justify security measures that undermine the liberties of other nations. 

ISLAMISM = ZIONISM

ISIS, Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Hezbollah, Muslim Brotherhood.

All of these claim to be muslim organizations aimed at ‘liberating men from tyranny’.

Who chose you and what tyranny are you liberating me from? How do I know you yourself are not a tyranny?

Hezbollah is hated by many sunnis thanks to a very successful pro-sunni propagation machine initiated mainly by the Gulf. Hezbollah is viewed as an extension of Iran, and even Syria, and ultimately, as a representation of ‘heresy’ that leads only to slavery.

The Muslim Brotherhood is often viewed as the victim of disenfranchisement and in Syria, socialism and Ba’athism, prevented this group from gaining freedom.

The conflict between socialism and capitalism – I believe – has been manifested here.

The Islamists claim to be fighting for freedom, yet want to institute a system that subjugates freedom for the sake of religion. Hezbollah claims to be resisting Israeli occupation and Western imperialism. Syria is a battleground for these two ideologies; Palestine, Egypt & Lebanon too. In fact, the entirety of the Middle East has been turned into the global battleground of competing ideologies thanks to Western imperialists and their cohorts.

It is pretty clear that groups of right-wing persuasion are supported by the strongest power house of Islamism in the Middle East: Saudi Arabia, which also happens to be Israel’s quiet little bitch, sitting idly as Palestinians are murdered, claiming to be a beacon of ‘pure’ Islam.

Iran is viewed as the ‘kfir’ (or heretic, in arabic) of the Middle East simply because of its sympathy for cultural diversity and artistry as well as its reluctance to submit to the influence of zionism, western imperialism and eastern expansionism.

Right now, Israel is more desperate than ever to legitimize its illegitimate and irrational religious existence in the heartland of the Middle East – and what better way to do that than to prop up a bunch of radicalized islamist groups that seek to delegitimize the genuine voice of the muslim people and the arab people as a whole, and the rest of the Middle East. ISIS is the new al Qaeda – it’s just going to be harder to deceive the average global citizen in today’s world. Bush’s WMD lies and 9/11 were our eye openers.
