It is either imperialism carving its route, or correctional measures to counter Bush’s imperialism. If Saudi & Qatar are among the sponsors of ISIS, how does this make sense? Israel is quietly involved, as usual. Some would argue Assad is more convenient for Israel, Saudi and other Arab governments – others would argue otherwise, that Assad is the anti-imperialist, anti-destabilizing force. A third perspective is that all the alternatives are culpable in tyranny, marginalizing the moderate voices of the Middle East, voices that would echo the common human qualities of freedom, dignity and fulfillment. Alliances are forged and broken within minutes in politics – what is constant is motive; which is the security of ‘arbitrary’ power. Who stands on the side of justice, and not just on vague, pretentiously ambitious political concepts?
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.
