Israel uses paranoia to dictate global policy, labeling the recent deal reached between the US and Iran as a “historic mistake”. Seems to me Israel is trying to fan the flames. But why? O I don’t know, perhaps to perpetuate its expansionist fascism by spreading its borders across the region?

I would like to educate Middle Easterners on my perspective on global politics and especially the Arab World.
While this is a difficult task for a variety of reasons, I feel it is now a pressing issue that must be addressed, or else we as an Arab people may face further humiliation, indignation, oppression, and eventually, complete elimination.
I do not know exactly why it is so commonplace for Arabs to have a distorted understanding of their own homeland, but I do know that this problem exists and that it has not only caused rivets between fellow Arab brethren — it has allowed for ill-intentioned insiders and outsiders to use it to their advantage. As the age old saying goes: “divide and conquer”.
What seems to be happening in the Middle East is a perfect example of modern colonialism. The brilliance of modern colonialism is that it is easily guised as an effort to “bring nations into the community of civilized nations” by imposing democracy, or I should say pseudo-democracy.
It isn’t much different from history though, for even in the past, individuals and nations together justified invasions and occupations through religion. The Americans wiped out the indians because they were ‘savages’. Europe did the same in Africa and the Middle East, colonizing nations and exploiting their resources.
The problem in the Middle East and in most places that are under pressure from the spheres of influence of bigger nations like the U.S., China, Russia and the European continent, is that it is difficult for nations to be fully democratic because they are easily infiltrated and penetrated by insiders and outsiders trying to exploit resources. Even in modern developed democracies like America, there are forces inside and out constantly seeking to exploit America’s wealth, it’s resources, and its values. Some of these entities include major banks, oil companies, lobbyists like the NRA and AIPAC. If even America faces constant threats to its democracy, to its protection of individual rights as well as its social community, why is it so hard for arabs to understand that a black-and-white transition to arbitrary democracy is irrational, unscientific, and if anything naive.
Before democracies can flourish in countries like Syria, Egypt, etc, there must be an establishment of certain laws, absolute laws, preventing abuses of power, politically, socially, and economically.
But you see the reason why democracy itself does not exist in the Middle East is not because of socialist regimes and baathist regimes that are seeking to usurp power and control economies. In fact, the governments of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries are more inclined to do such things under the guise of “Islam”. What better way to convince people that your way of life is right then to equate failure with burning in hell eternally. This is not Islam.
Syria is the way it is precisely because of the West — not because of democracy, not because of capitalism, not because of freedom. Certain actors in the West got big heads and thought they could take advantage of other countries that have not yet reached democratic status.
Ultimately, what I am trying to get at is that Israel is the remnant of colonial ambitions in the Middle East and has perpetuated the lack of genuine democratic development by staging a two year long farce of an Arab Revolution.
If Israel didn’t exist, there would be no apartheid government in the region, and a more stable Middle East could transition to democracy.
But you see the West is too afraid to grant the Arabs the right to self determination. No, if we grant them freedom they might actually make use of their resources and become free, self-sufficient, and dignified. No, we don’t want that says England, says Corporate America. We want Kings and Pseudo-Democracies like Israel (which is really just a colonial satellite guised as a religious entity in order to garner post-holocaust sympathy), that are bent to the West’s will and that will secure economic interests — namely, oil.
So before we begin jumping to conclusions let us understand that all people deserve the right to self-determination, and the only forces in the West that recognize that are the more liberal ones, which is why I am more satisfied with Obama being president than a Mitt Romney or another George W. Bush…
All I can say is that I pray that the Arab people will forgive themselves for getting too cocky and will accept the truth so that we may live a dignified existence, free from occupation, slavery, ignorance, and hypocrisy.
God grant me this wish.
Too much on my mind right now. A spliff would be nice. Debating a lot. Life decisions. Friendships. Careers. Kind of tired of irrational faith. Tired of irrational perfectionism. Tired of being limited by my self. Tired of being convinced that I do not deserve glory. Sick of not embracing my sickness, my elite quality. Yes, as pompous as I sound, this is true sentiment. There are many things I want and love, I’m just having a hard time because of various paranoias and because I hate regretting decisions. I don’t want to be alone. Sometimes I feel like I do it to my self.
The ideal life I want is here. Take it upon your hands to bring it about. You have the economic gift, the spiritual gift, the holy spirit’s guidance, the Lord’s protection. You have knowledge, kindness, and ambition. Release soon. Trust in the Lord.
Not sure why I do this to myself. Abandoned my team because I thought I wasn’t meant for them. Lost faith in us. My family is disappointed and as lost about me as I am. Today I argued with my mom again, about the same shit. Money, school, and a lack of direction. I had a direction once and lost it, perhaps because of ego, fear, and maybe out of pain. I’d been hurt by my friends for their behavior, but now I am suffering. Disconnected from my original artistic team, and in such a financial mess that I am unsure about where I am headed. I have my faith in God and in my destiny, but what then am I doing wrong? Where am I going wrong? Is it in my desire to be alone and the only one? Or I should say my “ego’s” desire to be the only one and on its own. But how hypocritical. I don’t even want to be an artist but I allow whatever feeling to creep into my conscience and convince me that I need the credit, that I need to be on top, the leader, the recognized, the prestigious. But how shallow? I mean I think it is part of human nature to want recognition, but where am I going wrong? I don’t want to do this art thing alone. I want my team back. I want to be a part of Colours of the Culture. I want to be co-founder, creative director, artistic director, producer, and song writer. I would also like to write articles and such. That is my only way of making money and establishing progress. What about fears of failure and Niko’s flaws? Can I correct where things go wrong? This was my job before. Long as we can see money and return, and as long as my positions are delineated and clear, I want a cut. I get paid by Colours of the Culture for my services. What bothers me is that I want to be co-founder, co-leader at least, not just some employee of a company, especially if my services are integral. That way I can quit all my jobs and start my services. I am an artist working for Colours and I provide services. I can produce videos, songs, lyrics, write-ups, but I don’t want to work as an artist. Strange when you realize what you actually want is what was intended for you and not what your ego desires.
So much potential and self-trust, self-faith, and determination that I’d hate to waste it on pointless positions in life like wage-based salaries and orthodox conformities. Get the fuck out of here. All these weirdos who try to convince me they are happy. Why you want to force me into your ways then, if you are so happy? Look I am going to be king. I need to be cause if I am not I won’t be here. I am great. I want to be.
Taking over the world, establishing a dynasty, a throne rather, being me, the king of my world. God, Love, Peace.
