a man’s struggle for himself.
We cannot be free in Syria until we are free in Palestine because both barricades of slavery have the same master: Israel.
And by freedom it does not mean anarchy against the very force that has stood loyally against Israeli expansionism since 1948.
Egypt’s agendas have always echoed the policies of their masters, America and Russia.
Saudi Arabia is a kingdom in the 21st century which has stood for nothing but the preservation of its arbitrary rule at the expense of the national sovereignty of the Arabian peninsula’s communities and the proper distribution of its vast economic resources.
Jordan has been a quiet lapdog of England and America. It basically echoes the sentiments of its Gulf neighbors.
The only two countries which have stood against Israeli imperialism in the Middle East have been Iran & Syria.
The defeat of the USSR eliminated one major influence in Middle Eastern affairs, but it carved a wider path for the Americans.
Standing against Israel, today, means standing against the imperial policies of America.
The end of Bush’s presidency and the ascension of a democrat has brought immense hope but the influence of Republican ‘expansionist’ policies remains.
Until this force wains, the Middle East will not be completely free. Nor will the American people, who must deal with the duality of their nation’s exceptionalism.
What an evening. I’ve read some of the most interesting stuff today. From this features BI article about Marlon Brando and his gesture to not attend the Oscars in 1973 for his lead role in ‘The Godfather’, to coverage of Maduro’s Venezuela, I cannot say this has been a boring not for journalism. What do the two have in common? Well, I could’ve posted many other things. In fact, I might have preferred to replace the Maduro section with an article about Bashar al-Assad, president of my country, Syria, which has been in turmoil for about three years now. Syria, like Venezuela, Ukraine, Egypt, and many more, are the modern playing fields of the world’s greatest powers. These are the outlets of the cold war; where the axes meet – East, and West. In many parts of the world, the struggle is imminent. But what struggle? From the Zapatistas of Mexico, to the Palestinian Resistance, what is this universal struggle facing mankind in different areas of his earthly soil? Who are the players in this ‘game’? The Native Americans lost half the earth to Christian Imperialism. Today, Zionism threatens the existence of the Palestinian nation — or what is left of it. Don’t look so far – the effects are spilling over into neighboring regions of the Middle East, from Lebanon to Egypt. The war between good and evil is still going on dear friends. Which side are you on?
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.
