Analyzing Political Undertones in Pop Culture Through Art


schindler-s-list-original2

There is generally speaking a list of artistic works that, despite their aesthetic greatness, are either historically misrepresentative & inaccurate or merely biased in context and coverage.

Some do justice, some don’t. Perception all depends on which angle you look at the subject. I wish for justice for all, but we must recognize, expose & bring to justice those distinct forces which cause & instigate violent political crime.

Munich, Waltz with Bashir, & Exodus, viewed as biased & racist. Black & Arab culture, disenfranchised, used, exploited, hung & dried.

A more accurate depiction of reality in the Middle East in Palestinian film Paradise Now.

Another, more realistic representation of the ME in a scene from Syriana, which features George Clooney & Matt Damon.

How Hollywood & all of western media distorts reality through film & other mediums of mass mainstream expression.

This rather, light film depicts the similarities, and differences, between the Arab & Israeli people. But recognition of Israel implies two things: treachery to the Arab cause; abandoning the human rights of the Palestinian nation.

Is it unfair for the international community to suggest that the Jews are fine without a state called Israel? The difference between the need for an Armenian state, for example, versus a Jewish one, is that the former is completely ethnic-based while the latter is a hybrid of religion, culture and language. This makes it difficult to place importance on the need for a Jewish state while ignoring Palestinian self-determination.

If there is a moral arc of the universe, it bends in favor of the Westerner & the lighter-skinned.

Orientalism: How It Impacts America Today


There is an absence of mysticism in the West, a beautiful mysticism which allows the rest of the world to see beyond the limitations of ideological dogma.

Ideological dogma results in slavery, misery and conflict. In the west our dogmas range from capitalism to socialism, from Christian evangelism to wall street cronyism.

America is not a nation for white people. That is what Europe is for. Is that not geographically and historically correct? The presence of African Americans as well as Latino Americans and their cultures combined with the realities of slavery have created a new demographic of immigrants and indigenous that should be honored.

Diversity and individualism should be honored. Coming from Syria, being Armenian, I grew up in a household that taught me to embrace knowledge, literature, culture, and, perhaps most pressingly, to remain religiously curious, especially so as to avoid the dangers of religious fanaticism.

As I stated I am of Armenian descent, and I hold Syrian nationality. My struggle has been against zionism, imperialism, global ideological fanaticism, extreme ideological collectivism, anarchical-individualism, and such.

It seems the only taboo philosophy in the West is mysticism – and having come from the Orient, with both Syrian, Persian and Armenian influences, Islam has embodied that philosophy. And while American leftism has grown more tolerant of moderate Islam, there is still a great deal of backlash against leftist-Islam in the West and especially in the Middle East, where the dogmas of Sunni-inspired capitalism, Wahhabism and royalist are rampant.

Mystic Islam is a brand that promotes moderation in expression, unity in nation, and individualism within boundaries of ethics. The ethic is merely to remain loyal to God, so as to refrain from becoming too mentally self-absorbed to the extent of losing ones identity for the sake of

If this creed is upheld, the individual and the nation prosper and remain intact. Economically, politically and socially there would be no dogma. Te dogma of democracy, capitalism, socialism, Wahhabism, etc – would fall subservient to moderate Islam – thereby preserving nationalism and individualism.

I’m america we are inching closer and closer to this reality but it will require as much economic redistribution and socialism mixed with capitalism as possible to rebalance historical wrongdoings.
