What Egypt needs now – Part I, Sinai

What Egypt needs now – Part I, Sinai

By Prof. Muhammad Shamsaddin Megalommatis

With the bomb explosion that killed more than 30 soldiers and triggered the proclamation of a 3-month state of emergency across North Sinai Governorate, came to an end all the dreams that the newly elected president El Sissi would assuredly put Egypt back on the correct path and quickly reinstall order as it had been before the thunderous Friday 28 January 2011, the day that shook former president Mubarak’s regime from its foundations.

What most people fail to notice is the timing of the tragic event; occurred after the collapse of Sanaa, the Yemenite capital, to the Houthi rebels of Yemen’s extreme North, the bomb explosion took place after more than a month of fighting at Kobani (Ayn al Arab) in North Syria, and while chaotic strife has been attested across the region from Libya to Gaza to South Sudan. The news in detailed and accurate form can be found here: http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/world/2014-10/25/c_127139288.htm and http://www.rt.com/search/everywhere/term/egypt/

It was therefore only normal for Juan Cole to wonder whether Egypt’s Sinai is going the way of Syria (http://www.juancole.com/2014/10/egypts-troops-militants.html).

Why Israel needs to detach the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt

The aforementioned is enough for any objective observer to realize that the next stage for destabilization in the region will take place in Egypt. This is at least what events of such scale suggest. It can really become an inferno quite soon, if one takes into consideration the explosive situation at the ground and the existing parallel plans providing for chaos, fratricidal conflicts, and ultimate dismemberment of the country. These plans are very real and very serious; they have little to do with the globally evident advocates of the decomposed but not defunct Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan al Muslimeen). The real composers and promoters of the anti-Egyptian schemes are not as ostensible as Qatar and Turkey are, and to deceive many, they usually appear as rather recommending if not applauding Egypt’s stance in regional affairs.

Destabilization in the Sinai Peninsula is certainly part of Israel’s medium term targets; the racist governments of the Zionist state are currently engaged in a dramatic search for a sizeable hinterland. The reason is simple; their illegal entity stands on a very small piece of land that forces them not to make concessions in order to achieve peace with those among the Palestinians who are ready for a final ‘peace for land’ deal. In this, the Zionists are ‘technically’ right; a state as small and narrow as Israel was within its 1967 borders is really indefensible in the 2010s.

But the anxious character of Zionist journalists like Matt Lee and Joshua Davidovich when writing about the currently troublesome US-Israeli relationship (http://www.timesofisrael.com/us-officials-israel-defense-chief-denied-meetings/?utm_source=The+Times+of+Israel+Daily+Edition&utm_campaign=5f63cc2285-2014_10_25&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_adb46cec92-5f63cc2285-54783545 & http://www.timesofisrael.com/us-reportedly-denies-yaalon-request-to-meet-with-kerry-biden/?utm_source=The+Times+of+Israel+Daily+Edition&utm_campaign=5f63cc2285-2014_10_25&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_adb46cec92-5f63cc2285-54783545) reveals that the Zionist state authorities feel clearly that they should not rely exclusively of US support for their future plans. The recent visit if Israel’s Minister of Defense in the US was an opportunity for the American administration to humiliate a cumbersome ally which proves to be otherwise useless for the changes that the US administration intends to impose on the wider region.

To the rapacious Zionist authorities, the Sinai Peninsula – three times the size of Israel – offers a wonderful opportunity for retreat, involving extensive transfer of populations, extensive capabilities for successive defense lines, and lengthy coastal zones already equipped with a really great tourism infrastructure. More importantly, the local population does not exceed 400000 people (almost one fifth – 1/5 – of the population of Gaza strip) with no major urban centers except Al Arish that totals more than 25% of the entire peninsula’s population.

As it is expected that many people will emigrate to Egypt, if Sinai is declared independent or autonomous under a vague Bedouin ‘political control’ (which would be a euphemism for the Israeli protectorate), it will be very easy for the Zionist military and security forces to implement an undisputed control in the new Eldorado of Zionism. Only then, the Zionist political class will show ‘magnanimous’ enough to concede to the Palestinian Authority all the territories occupied in the 1967 war, with some specific arrangements to be made for the status of Jerusalem (international city and common capital of the three Abrahamic faiths).

The Zionist state’s commitment to the ‘Sinai for Israel’ scenario however contravenes certain American plans for the wider region, and this generated the currently escalating US-Israeli diplomatic row. America wants to force Palestinians and Israelis to sign a final agreement involving land concessions; Israel cannot accept this before a retreat possibility becomes a reality; this produces further instability in the Sinai because the only means chosen by Israel is simulation; and this increases the instability in the peninsula where US operatives already implement divergent plans.

The time schedule is therefore tight, because the Zionist state needs to have results in the Sinai before the obstinate Israeli rejection of US pressure toward a final ‘land for peace’ agreement with the Palestinian Authority damages the US-Israeli relationship irreparably.

The annexation of Sinai by Israel will be a very easily done job because the Zionist populations have learned how to be new settlers here and there, can afford cold winter, mountainous environment, and harsh conditions of life for a certain period of time, whereas they can rely on an inexorable financial backing that dwarfs all the dire needs that may be ensuing from a massive population transfer in otherwise inaccessible regions. In other words, Israeli cities on the rocky mountains of the Sinai would be a rather cost-efficient expansion.

Can Egypt oppose Israel’s plans in the Sinai Peninsula?

To this hypothetical question there can be only one answer. In fact, theoretically, every threat can be timely averted if timely assessed. At this very moment, it is not clear whether the rulers of Egypt clearly understand that in the Sinai Peninsula the major threat comes from Israel, and not from America, Europe or the … Islamists. The latter are mere agents of the secret services of some Western countries; by themselves they do not constitute a decision making center – pretty much like Al Qaeda or ISIS/ISIL, the fake caliphate.

In fact, the timing and the extent of the recent explosion clearly indicate that it cannot be America. At present, the US do not harbor destabilization plans for Egypt’s northeast where the Sinai Peninsula lies; the US would rather prefer security, calm and peace to prevail in that specific region, because these are prerequisites for Egypt to keep the Gaza border open, and this is exactly what the US wants in order to revitalize / reequip / reinforce (not directly but via proxies) Hamas, a valuable tool for US pressure over Israel. But now, Egypt closed the Gaza border, which is exactly what Israel needs.

The relatively recent sort of Zionist literature as per which Israel’s real allies under the current circumstances are Egypt and Saudi Arabia (and not the US and Europe) represents a tool for the Zionist propaganda, and it is quite dangerous for Egypt, if the confusion is spread and the deception is believed.

The worst mistake for the current Egyptian government would be to continue its relationship with Israel, as if nothing happened. In fact, the borders with Israel must close for security reasons. No Israeli tourist must be accepted in Egypt.

The myth of the Israeli tourist in Egypt, particularly in Egypt’s Red Sea Riviera from Dahab to Qusseir, lasted too long and harmed the country too much in order to be still believed. There were never Israeli tourists in Egypt; there were Israeli secret services agents impersonating the tourists and acting accordingly under their inconspicuous apparel.

Imposing the state of emergency in North Sinai, closing the Gaza border, shutting the Israel border down, and canceling the arrival of all Israeli tourists are only preliminary measures.

The Egyptian government must soon take and rapidly implement two sets of measures, short term (up to 3-4 months) and medium term (5 months to 2 years)

Short term measures that Egypt must take in Sinai over the next 3-4 months

1- An increased military presence, disguised as local police or national security and gendarmerie, must put all parts of the Sinai Peninsula, inhabited and uninhabited, frequented and non-frequented, mountainous or not, accessible and inaccessible, under complete 24×7 controls and permanent patrolling. The force needed for this is at least equivalent to 500000 soldiers, and Egypt should be partly mobilized. (7 soldiers per km2 is a minimal prerequisite in this regard)

2- To better implement point 1 policy, thousands of military outposts will have to be erected and put into effect. They will have to be disguised as police outposts to allow the country to be in conformity with international treaties. The entire Sinai Peninsula will have thus to be turned to a vast military camp.

3- All homes, residences and buildings must be searched extensively, meticulously, unexpectedly and repeatedly, vast repertories must be made, all movements of individuals and all personal contacts monitored and registered, whereas all travels to and out of the area must be blocked for all.

4- Through use of all types of methods and technologies combined, all parts of the Sinai territory must be searched scrupulously and all possible underground depots and stores of arms and ammunition discovered. It is to be anticipated that huge caches of arms will be discovered in the process because the pernicious infiltration started many years ago.

5- The Egyptian navy will have to effectuate a maritime blockade of the Sinai Peninsula alongside both, the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea, coasts. Tourist movements from Hurghada to Sharm el Sheikh will have to be submitted to border-level baggage control, and the same measure will have to apply in all domestic and international flights for all passengers whatsoever. Fishing boats will have to be checked on daily basis.

6- A second ‘border’ line must be delineated and all tourist sites across Sinai’s western and eastern coasts (linked only through Suez to the rest of the country) must be totally cut off from the rest of the peninsula, all roads patrolled, individual tourism banned, and any movement between the two zones strictly prohibited. With the exception of St. Catherine’s monastery all other sightseeing destinations in the Sinai inland must be canceled. Only convoy movements must be allowed across the roads leading to St. Catherine’s monastery.

7- The Egyptian state authorities must have the absolute conviction that several thousands of Egyptian citizens originating from the Sinai Peninsula have been working for years as different level agents of the Zionist state; otherwise inevitably, Egypt will lose the battle of the Sinai and the country’s national integrity will be subsequently affected. This makes the following measure unavoidable. With the exception of the tourist resorts alongside the coasts and St. Catherine’s monastery, Internet connection and mobile communication must be suspended for time indefinite. This should apply to Rafah, Al Arish, and all other urban centers, hamlets, and locations.

8- With the exception of the tourist resorts alongside the coasts and St. Catherine’s monastery, no foreigner under any circumstances or pretexts whatsoever should be allowed to move across Sinai, involving diplomats, NGOS, representatives of international bodies, etc.

9- The Egyptian state authorities must have the absolute conviction that it is not only the Palestinians who are specializing in the construction of tunnel; the Zionist government has commissioned different agencies that offer job positions to unspecialized ‘Jewish’ labor from Russia and other countries, and they have also been working secretly for quite a long period. There are several Israeli tunnels crossing the Egyptian Sinai borders in greater depth than that of the Palestinian underground passages; the Israeli tunnels reach at distances of dozens of kilometers inside the Egyptian territory in the Sinai. Through these passageways, weaponry has been systematically smuggled into Egypt and laboriously stored in various caches in the desert and the mountains, Bedouins working as Mossad agents have moved into Israel for special training and then returned ‘home’, and Israeli forces specializing in guerilla and false flag attacks have repeatedly crossed the borders to perform their criminal acts and then run back to Israel and thus disappear.

To address this situation and make sure that nothing can be smuggled any more into their targeted country, the Egyptian authorities must undertake another project of enormous dimensions immediately. The army will only supervise the project, but a civil authority must be commissioned in this regard, and a great number of unspecialized jobless Egyptians (a hundred thousand as per modest estimates) will have to be ‘hired’ on temporary basis and with minimum salary (corvée) to form the utility teams that will materialize the enormous project.

Sinai peninsula

From Rafah to Ayn al Qusaymah to Al Kuntillah and thence to Taba, a huge trench must be dug with a length of more than 300 kilometers; with an initial width of 20 to 30 meters, the trench (or canal) should be at least 100 m deep to have the chance to reach/surpass the level of the Israeli underground passageways and make them useless. Work must start in many different points at the same time and the different utility teams that will be working in parallel will have to advance in two opposite directions in order to reach the points where other digging teams will have advanced to.

Meanwhile, the hinterland behind the trench should be systematically patrolled during the works as per above point 1.

Initially undertaken for security measures, and permanently maintained ever since, this project could later be upheld and the utility teams be further employed after the completion of the works to eventually turn the project to a second Suez Canal, linking Rafah to Taba.

The above short term measures must be taken immediately and carried out within a 3-4 month period with the only exception made for point 8 that will last longer. With the completion of the implementation of the above measures, national security and civil order will prevail, and this will involve the gradual alleviation or even termination of some of the aforementioned measures.

Then, the path will open for the roll-out of the medium term measures that will have meanwhile to be completed at the study level.

Medium term measures that Egypt must take in Sinai over the next 3-4 years

The Sinai Peninsula was never inhabited by settled populations in significant numbers throughout its entire millennia long history; to the Ancient Egyptians, it was known as Biau, i.e. the land of mines, and there were important temples, like Serabit al Khadim. Early writing systems have also been attested in parts of the peninsula; the vestiges of Proto-Sinaitic writing fully demonstrate that it was a derivative of the Egyptian Hieratic writing, used however not for the Ancient Egyptian language, but for the local Canaanite language that was spoken among the few inhabitants. Modern scholarship successfully identified significant historical mines across the peninsula, but this does not change in anything the reality that there has never been any major city, harbor, port of call, entrepot, market place, trading center or caravan stopover in Sinai. Its name derived from that of the Ancient Assyrian Babylonian god Sin, who symbolized the moon, epitomized the peninsula’s rather inhospitable character.

Scarcity of population, borderline area, mountainous environment, semiarid zones, and the heavy burden of history are dimensions of the Sinai Peninsula identity that have impacted modern Egyptian attitude toward the triangular geographic oddity of Sinai.

Now, to save its targeted province, Egypt is called to change History.

Viewing the Egyptian governmental policies retrospectively, one has to admit that the successive Mubarak administrations must be credited for having slightly modified the Egyptian attitude toward Sinai, and this was expressed through the rise of the tourism industry. Viewed from the exclusive standpoint of money income, this policy was not bad, but if one takes into consideration the existing geopolitical challenges, one has to conclude that Mubarak administrations’ view of the Sinai was narrow-minded, shriveled, and therefore dangerous.

Finally, Mubarak administrations’ laissez faire ended up in the explosive situation that we have got in our hands today.

To counterbalance the existing challenges and hedge the imminent dangers in Sinai, Egypt needs only a visionary’s look over the country’s problems. In fact, Sinai, as it is now, offers an excellent opportunity to Egypt’s administrations to solve – to some extent – other serious problems of the Nile Valley and the Delta.

Today’s Egypt, even considered as deprived of enemies, threats and challenges, has very serious problems, and at the top of the list one finds the overpopulation of a small stretch of land, the Valley of Nile. With over 90 million people almost all condensed in the small narrow valley of the Nile and the Delta (much less than 10% of the country’s territory), Egypt faces one of the world’s most explosive demographics. This does not bode well for the future of any country.

The measure of a medium and long term success hinges only on changing the following, lethally perilous demographics assessment; with an estimated 75% of Egyptians being under 25 and with a meager 3% being over 65, the country’s population lives on a small part of the country’s territory (ca. 6%) whereby the density average is over 1540 persons per km2. This cannot last longer.

The gravity of the situation is revealed here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Egypt;

The best defensive line that Egypt can draw across Sinai is the transformation of the peninsula into a remarkably inhabited province. New cities have to be built, semiarid territories have to become arable cultivated lands, and basically urban populations must be transferred from Cairo, the Delta, and Upper Egypt to Sinai. Factories must be transferred; universities must be relocated; the necessary transportation, habitation, and telecommunication infrastructure must be made available; new businesses, new manufactures, and systematic cattle management must be planned and launched in every single corner of the peninsula, and no less that 5-6 million people must be transferred from the aforementioned areas to the Sinai within a period of 3-4 years, following a 6-month planning session.

It has to be carefully planned and programmed with a perspective of population expansion up to 15-20 million, involving new cities, towns and villages in the coast lands, in the semiarid desert, and in the mountains. Furthermore, it has to be forcefully implemented, involving motivations and stimuli that will mark very differently the lives of the transferred populations, making of them the new elite of the country.

If there were today 6 million Egyptians living across Sinai, one can be sure that never ever would the Zionist state elaborate annexation plans and attempt to implement them. Massive population transfer to the Sinai is a medium-long term measure, which may irrevocably egyptianize the Egyptian territory before it is lost forever.

In a forthcoming article, I will examine what other measures the current Egyptian administration has to envisage for the country’s future in order to fully eliminate the grave problems that it inherited from earlier colonial and postcolonial, lethargic or unrealistic rulers of either the vice-royal or the republican times.

A map for the Egyptian administration to study closely (and the related texts: http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/kovach/091013). In this case, historical accuracy matters little; what is important to seize in this regard is that there are people (and lobbies, associations, secret organizations, etc. standing behind them) who utterly believe in this type of distortions and falsehood. These are the people who have the power and shape the real decisions that presidents and prime ministers only implement. Of course, statesmen and politicians will turn down the importance of such people and of their ideas. But if we examine things from distance and through the perspective of centuries (and not that of years or months), we will immediately realize that such plans have been worked out in the wider region, and that the local, pseudo-Islamic, and utterly silly religious authorities and the idiotic rulers, like Saddam Hussein, Qadhafi, Hafez and Bashar al Assad, Hassan II and Mohammed VI of Morocco, Bourguiba, Zin Al Abedin, Abdallah of Jordan, Buteflika, Abdallah of Saudi Arabia, Ali Abdallah, Hosni Mubarak, and Omar Al Bashir – and their services – failed to detect, let alone assess, evaluate and outmaneuver them.

Ottoman Empire, Fake ‘Middle East’, the Pseudo-Christians of the West, and the Forthcoming Tribulation

Cassandra by Evelyn de Morgan

Cassandra, by Evelyn de Morgan – London, 1898

 

By Prof. Muhammad Shamsaddin Megalommatis

The dissolution of the Ottoman Empire is a Crime for which the World will still pay much.

The rightful state for all African and Western Asiatic territories between Morocco and Iran is the Ottoman Empire. However, in the aftermath of WW I, and because of the defeat of Imperial Germany’s allies, the Ottoman Empire was dispossessed of more than 80% of its territories (today’s Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Yemen) that had meanwhile been limited only in Western Asia, due to the French – English – Italian colonial expansion and illegal expropriation of Ottoman provinces in NW – N – NE Africa (today’s Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan and Eritrea).

The colonial empires attempted to achieve economic and political benefits through their expansion, and they managed to do so, and in the process they diffused colossal amounts of lies, disseminated alien theories and insults against the indigenous nations’ traditions, performed heinous deeds, carried out series of crimes, imposed unacceptable policies, and offered every reason for any indigenous nation to reject their plans and to revile them for having spread in the process discord and enmity among the indigenous nations, fratricidal conflicts, successive wars, foreign military interventions, ecological and human disasters, and total social disintegration.

On the other side, governed by puppet governments that do not obey the will of their peoples but carry out the orders of shadowy organizations and secret societies, the Western societies in their totality (except those who openly rejected the evildoing) became the undisputed accomplices of their governments and of their secret masters. Responsibility is therefore to be shared by all.

Because the top of the Western societies, i.e. the powerful secret organizations that define who participates in the local governments and who does not, consists of unbelievers, immoral gangsters, and villainous cheaters, no consideration was given to the moral aspect of the policies implemented and the deeds performed. But this does not change in anything their responsibility, and the responsibility of the puppet governments, and the responsibility of the peoples who were controlled by this pyramidal hierarchical scheme. They all bear the common responsibility for the aforementioned deeds because, irrespective of any religion and faith, every human bears the responsibility of his / her acts.

This is something that most of the simple people in all the Western countries tend to forget. If this attitude characterizes one agnostic or atheist person, it does not matter much because every person who rejects the universal order established by God (however perceived as per each specific religion and philosophy) is automatically immoral and no morality standards or principles can apply to, and be expected from, him/her. The notion of civic morality is a ludicrous attempt to effectively kill God and as such fully disregarded. Morality exists only within Faith; extreme cases like those of the Biblical stories about Sodom and Gomorrah bear witness to the aforementioned.

So, Western people, who are Christian of faith and accept the Christian concept of morality (differently interpreted of course as per each denomination), must know that they fully bear responsibility for the criminal deeds and policies of their governments to which they (and their forefathers) did not duly react. What is to be concluded from this point is that, according to Christian morality itself, Christians in the West should not be surprised, if terrible acts against their life, integrity, safety, and security are to be tomorrow undertaken. These acts have already been spearheaded by their governments’ policies and by the inactivity of those who value Christian and Biblical moral concepts like the famous order ‘Ό μισείς, μηδενί ποιήσεις‘ (Do that to no man which thou hatest – from Tobias, 4:15 – http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/apo/tob004.htm) which was exemplarily rephrased by Jesus as ‘Καθώς θέλετε ίνα ποιώσιν υμίν οι άνθρωποι, και υμείς ποιείτε αυτοίς ομοίως‘ (Do to other people what you want them to do to you – from Luke 6:31).

I am sure that true Christians fully understand the crimes that their successive governments have performed for more than 200 years against the Ottoman Empire and the different nations that lived in this vast empire. It would be too idiotic to believe that Jesus demanded from his followers to invade other countries, extirpate their resources, scheme against their inhabitants, and in the process persecute, torture or kill those who opposed them.

As this is quite clear, one has to conclude that those among the Westerners, who recently supported policies such as the wars undertaken by the US (with or without their allies) against Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, etc., are not and by definition cannot be Christian, irrespective of how they identify themselves, what they say they believe in, and whether they go to a church or not.

The reason for the above statement is simple.

– Who is the Christian American who would accept happily a foreign invading nation to detach Texas from the US, occupy the land, persecute the inhabitants, and expropriate its resources?

But America invaded Iraq, and the American Christians had an opportunity to thunderously oppose the Anti-Christian and Satanic policy of their country and in the process save their souls by markedly dissociating themselves from this nefarious evildoing. Unfortunately for the American Christians, they did nothing of the sort; quite contrarily, many of them expressed great happiness for the destruction their army caused on innocent countries like Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. none of which had ever planned, neither did they have the means, to attack America.

The extent of the crime to which these pseudo-Christians are held as wholehearted accomplices is such that, if they believe in their often mistranslated Bibles as they say, we can safely conclude that their souls will vanish in eternal Hell. And even before dying, they will face a calamitous punishment while living.

Jesus spoke about these pseudo-Christians of the West who are a real disgrace on the surface of the Earth; he said that ‘Οὐ πᾶς ὁ λέγων μοι, Κύριε Κύριε, εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τῶν οὐρανῶν, ἀλλὁ ποιῶν τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πατρός μου τοῦ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς‘ (Vulgata: ‘non omnis qui dicit mihi Domine Domine intrabit in regnum caelorum sed qui facit voluntatem Patris mei qui in caelis est ipse intrabit in regnum caelorum’ / English: Not every one who says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but he that does the will of my Father who is in the heavens – from Matthew 7:21).

Similarly, the English and French pseudo-Christians, who do not regret for their countries’ anti-Ottoman (and at the same time Anti-Christian) policies and who do not try to dissociate themselves from their evil, Satanic governments and states by any possible means, will be held responsible and vanish in eternal damnation. And before this is adjusted to their souls, their fate on Earth will be duly affected, because they have, thoughtlessly if not willingly, been the unrepented accomplices of the vicious and heinous policies pursued by their governments against the Ottoman Empire and its different nations.

Of course, the Christian populations of England and France (and before them those of other Christian countries like Holland, Spain and Portugal) were repeatedly confused and systematically misled by their vicious governments that promised them great wealth and prosperity due to the acquisition of colonial territories. But there are plenty of warnings in the Christian Bibles that clearly state that Christians have as tasks to watch carefully so that no one cheats them. Jesus said: ‘καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ ᾿Ιησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· βλέπετε μή τις ὑμᾶς πλανήσῃ’ (Vulgata: ‘et respondens Iesus dixit eis videte ne quis vos seducat’ / English: And Jesus answering, said to them: Take heed that no man seduce you – from Matthew 24:4).

All accounts made, there have been very few territories (mainly small islands) that were totally uninhabited at the moment of the Western colonization. In most of the cases, colonization brought about total destruction of the previous inhabitants, so it was a premeditated criminal act that the European colonizers carried out – and only for the sake of robbery, theft, expropriation of local wealth. Even worse, when trying to achieve these immoral and illegal targets, to overwhelmingly prevail over the indigenous nations that justly and rightfully defended their homelands, the European colonizers were forced to carry out extensive persecution, torture and genocide of the indigenous nations.In fact, it was a typical downgrading spiral that we customarily notice every time we see people, who are possessed by evil spirits, proceed from minor evil deeds to the most appalling crimes and sins.

It goes without saying that these crimes were decided and performed by the Freemasonic gangsters, who govern England, France, Holland and America; as a matter of fact, following their first initiation into the mysteries of Satan, these secluded non-humans lose quickly all traces of humanity and morality, and can perform all types of criminal evildoing. However, the enormous moral problem of all the rest, i.e. those who inhabit these countries and claim to be Christian, is that they did not and they still do not oppose these acts and policies, they don’t dissociate themselves from these crimes, and they do nothing to prevent them, being thus the most unfortunate accomplices. For the sake of stolen wealth that does not effectively belong to them (and which is will certainly and justly be soon removed from them), these pseudo-Christians have sold their souls to the devil.

They have thus forgotten the words of Jesus saying ‘Τι ωφελείται άνθρωπος εάν τον κόσμον όλον κερδήση, την δε ψυχήν αυτού ζημιωθή; Η τι δώσει άνθρωπος αντάλλαγμα της ψυχής αυτού;’ (Vulgata: ‘quid enim prodest homini si mundum universum lucretur animae vero suae detrimentum patiatur aut quam dabit homo commutationem pro anima sua’ / English: For what does a man profit, if he should gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? – from Matthew 16:26). This helps us understand that the consequences of their own indifference, ignorance, and immorality will fall upon them.

There is no Middle East – this is a false term in replacement of the correct ‘Ottoman Caliphate’ 

The extensive falsification project, which was launched by the colonial Orientalist academics in support of their countries’ evil deeds and was unfortunately accepted by the different Western, Christian nations, is another vast crime perpetrated for which the Western nations are in total impossibility to avoid the consequences. The project hinges on a multitude of points and details, systematic distortion, and fallacious contextualization of the events, but here I will examine only one dimension and term.

In fact, there is no Middle East.

The term is a subdivision of the ‘Orient’ (East) into ‘Near East’ (or Levant), ‘Middle East’, and ‘Far East’ (that comprised India and every land east of India). The entire subdivision of the Orient is historically irrelevant and morally vicious, but this is a subject for later discussion.

First, we should examine the general division of the world until the late 15th c. into Orient and Occident (East and West). The term draws on geographical considerations, but it takes a far more elaborate form of cultural division or divide. Geographically, it is truly correct to divide the surrounding lands as per the four cardinal points; however, this varies per country. What is ‘West’ for Iran (example: Turkish Anatolia) is ‘East’ for Greece. The same happens when moving from the septentrional to the meridional direction; what is ‘North’ for Sudan (example: Egypt) is ‘South’ for Phoenicia.

So, we can shape a conclusive opinion that whatever stands as geographically ‘relative’ cannot be held as historically – culturally – politically ‘absolute’. Consequently, the use of a similar term in a specific country cannot become general for all the countries of the world.

However, in striking opposition to the aforementioned conclusion, Western European scholars, promoting Freemasonic schemes, division and strives that brought about endless bloodshed, attempted to divide – first the historical past and second the political present of the last 300 years – into a fictional categorization ‘Orient vs. Occident’.

The term ‘Orientalist’ originates from this false division too. Quite interestingly, the vicious Freemasonic forgers of France and England did not come up with an equivalent term for those specializing on Western civilizations; there was never an ‘Occidentalist’!

This incredible trickery means that for no less than 20 different great civilizations (which entail twenty different names of specialists, such as Egyptologist, Assyriologist, Iranologist, etc.) there has been one generic term (Orientalist) created, whereas for only 2 great civilizations (Greece and Rome) no generic term was created but instead there have always been two specialized terms (Hellenist, Latinist) in use. This is exactly how – due to the dishonest terminology and the worthless diatribes of the Freemasonic forgers – the number 20 proved to be only half of the number 2!

As ‘Occident’ are identified, as regards the Antiquity and the Christian / Islamic Ages, only Greece, Rome and the predominantly Celtic Western Europe.

As ‘Orient’ are identified, as regards the Antiquity and the Christian / Islamic Ages, all the other lands, nations, cultures and civilizations in either Europe (Scythians, Cimmerians, etc.), Africa (Egypt, Carthage) or Asia (from Phrygia and Lydia that flourished on the Aegean Sea’s eastern shores to China).

This division is culturally baseless, structurally false, and largely contradicted by the existing historical sources and archaeological evidence referred to by the villainous Freemasonic forgers. In addition, it is geographically unacceptable. Example: ‘Oriental’ Carthage lies ‘west’ of ‘Western’ Greece!

Quite interestingly, even Greece’s territory during the Christian / Islamic Ages (successively part of the Eastern Roman and the Ottoman Empires), was viewed as rather part of the ‘Orient’. Useless to add that, according to this paranoia, the Islamic Caliphate of Andalusia in the Iberian Peninsula was unequivocally part of the ‘Orient’ too! This was absolutely ridiculous from the geographical point of view, because it meant literally that the ‘Orient’ was located both, east and west of the ‘Occident’!

However, the baseless cultural division obscured the minds of many people worldwide and deceived those of the rest. Even more unfortunately, the ensuing political division triggered scores of dead, incessant wars, and permanent discord and racism with even worse consequences.

As ‘Occident’ were identified in Modern Times only Italy, France, England, Belgium, Holland, the Scandinavian nations, and the US. Republics or monarchies seceding from the Spanish, Portuguese, and Ottoman Empires (Mexico, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Greece, Serbia) were tentatively accepted as ‘Occident’, and the same concerned later a certain number of former English dependencies that were accepted as independent states (Canada, Australia).

As ‘Orient’ were identified in Modern Times all the other lands, nations, cultures and civilizations in either Europe (Austria-Hungary, Imperial Germany, Tsarist Russia. the Ottoman Caliphate, and even the religious monarchies of Spain and Portugal that opposed the intellectual cholera of the so-called ‘Enlightenment’), Africa (the Ottoman provinces in the Black Continent, the Great Somali Sultanates, Morocco, the African kingdoms of the Oromos, the Hausa, etc., plus all the indigenous nations of the European colonies) or Asia (from the Ottoman Empire and Iran to Central Asia, India, SE Asia, China, Korea and Japan).

The political divide is certainly clearer of purpose; due to the projection of the baseless divide on the European soil itself, we can understand that the Freemasonic forgers created the two terms – parts of the divide in order to further polarize the differences between the states whereby the Anti-Christian theories of the French philosophers of the ‘Enlightenment’ were accepted (England, Holland, America, ‘Nouveau Régime’ France after 1789) and the states whereby these villainous, yet ideally marketed, theories were rejected.

In fact, the fake political divide categorized as ‘Orient’ together numerous states, empires, religions, cultures and nations as different from one another as the Catholics are from the Orthodox, the Sunni Muslims, the Shia Muslims, the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Taoists, the Confucians, the Shinto, the followers of diverse indigenous African religious systems, like the Oromo monotheistic Waaqeffannaa, and the followers of indigenous American and Pacific religious systems. Only this shows that the categorization is fake and the ensuing polarization can afflict the entire Mankind.

Following the systematized diffusion of the vicious divide, the ‘Orient’ (or East) was cut into three pieces, namely ‘Near East’ (Proche Orient or Levant in French), ‘Middle East’ (Moyen Oreint in French) and ‘Far East’ (Extrême-Orient in French). In fact, there is a very simple question that does not take years of specialized studies for someone to formulate, and it still unveils automatically the entire fallacy of the Freemasonic subdivision of the Orient:

– ‘Near East’; ‘near’ to whom?

To Western Europe, of course! This makes clear what is in the back side of the minds of the people involved in universities, research, academic and intellectual life, and subsequently in the world of politics.

Middle East: a Historical Fallacy and an unacceptable Immorality for Christians

There is no need for someone to specialize in an academic field in order to fully assess how terribly immoral and inhumanly vicious this terminology is.

Giving to a place, land, nation and civilization an appellation that does not reflect genuinely the indigenous developments and evolution across History but fully subordinates the place, land, nation and civilization to yourself is the result of a disproportionately gigantic egoism / egotism which is tantamount to the worst form of discrimination and racism. The problem is not anymore about the term’s falsehood and fallacy, but about its absolute immorality and tragic vicissitude. Of course, if the French or the English employed this term locally for the use of their own students only, this would be tolerated and would not create a major problem. Unfortunately, this is not what happened.

The colonial academics and diplomats imposed this false term on the students and the intellectuals, the journalists and the filthy, corrupt politicians of the victimized countries that were thus defined through their relationship with a third party. The Lebanese and the Egyptian slaves of the French (and subsequently the European and the American) universities were therefore forced to ‘learn’ that their countries were part of a region called ‘Near East’ because this region was ‘near to’ and ‘east of’ France and Western Europe. This automatically implied that the region in question was insignificant up to point that not one indigenous academic / intellectual could give it a collective name on the basis of the historical characteristics and evolution of the region, but they all had to pathetically wait the foreign invaders decree and order how their place should be named.

The subliminal consequences were immense; to call it ‘trauma’ it would be an understatement. In fact, it was a national – cultural – academic – intellectual – mental – educational assassination and, subsequently, a mind transplantation. The fact that the purely religious aspect was left out of the targeted area did not turn things better but did indeed worsen them. Islam as religion had collapsed long before the colonial powers arrived. As early as 1600 – 1700, Islam was not anymore a religious system of spirituality and transcendental experience (as it had used to be, like every religion) but a silly legal system involving a myriad of jurisprudential deliberations about petty things, a certain number of orders and directives that have to be executed thoughtlessly (and in most of the cases out of a desire to imitate the Prophet Muhammad), rites that have to be performed physically but without any spiritual dimension, beliefs that are of nominal value, a morality that counts on reward and social approval, and a deliberate, compact ignorance about, and disregard for, the Islamic Philosophy, Art, Science, and Erudition – despite the fact that Islam is accepted as the Religion of the Revealed Knowledge. It was quite clear to the colonial specialists on Islam that the survival of these religious beliefs within the new, colonial environment created after their arrival and interference in the colonized societies would have only explosive and destructive results; that’s why they did not do anything else except help the explosion come timely…

The indigenous nations were thus obliterated at all three, the personal, the collective social, and the narrative national, levels. They were turned to impotent, brainless and demented monkeys awaiting their foreign masters to give them names like Koko, the famous female gorilla that was born on July 4, 1971, in San Francisco, and mastered over 2,000 words in the American Sign Language, allowing her to communicate with humans in an astounding way (http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-famous-monkeys.php). As their mimicking of Islam was quite materialistic a system, they were engulfed in a total lack of creative imagination, which demands a certain degree of spirituality in order to be developed, and this prepared all these populations to duly be pathetic spectators of their unstoppable degradation and destruction; their leaders followed and still follow therefore an idiotic policy of day-by-day survival, which is not even a real effort to survive. If Zine al Abedine ben Ali, Mubarak, Ali Abdullah Saleh and Muammar al Qadhafi were overthrown in 2011 – 2012 and not in 1998, this is only due to the fact that the plan providing for their extinction included another date.

The imposition of the alien, colonial ego on the colonial monkeys and its mixture with the aforementioned religious leftover produced a monstrous, confused mind able only to cause self-destruction of monumental scale. This is the environment out of which emanated the dictatorial, bogus-monarchical, and religious authorities of the region, the likes of Abdallah of Saudi Arabia, Abd al-Aziz ibn Baz, Al Thani of Qatar, Abdallah of Jordan, Qadhafi, al Assad, Bouteflika, Mubarak, Sheikh Shaarawi, Saddam Hussein, Sheikh Qaradhawi, etc., all confused and self-confusing, genuinely unable to make a correct assessment of their situation and to see the impending destruction. They ostensibly worsened their case because, when they were deliberately and repeatedly mistreated, disrespected and even ridiculed, and they felt so, they used to react to this situation without however correctly assessing the overall context from where they emerged and the existing possibilities for efficient reaction – and this used only to bring forth the next disaster.

The absolute elimination of the indigenous ‘ego’ along with a flux of false documentation and historical falsification that the colonial powers produced massively and projected on the militarily / economically / politically / academically / intellectually / culturally colonized territories (that are still euphemistically called ‘independent realms’!) triggered oppressed among local leaders and indigenous peoples vast complexes of inferiority, obstinate reactions, and obdurate interpretations of Islam (‘misinterpretations’ is the correct term) that are the root causes of all conflicts and misunderstandings, strives and clashes in the wider region.

I did not mention however the above points in order to analyze the reasons of, and find a solution to, the problem but exclusively in relation with the pseudo-Christian populations of the West. Morally dead, these fake Christians accepted the Freemasonic falsification produced by their academic – political elites, without thinking that ‘Οὐδεὶς οἰκέτης δύναται δυσὶ κυρίοις δουλεύειν’ (Vulgata: ‘nemo potest duobus dominis servire’ / English: None is able to serve two lords – from Matthew 6:24).

Accepting to impose on all the other nations of the world definitions based on a vicious egocentric Western misperception of the World and misuse of the World History is a great sin for Christians of the West. Consenting, favoring and sanctioning the aforementioned colonial policies of their governments is a tremendous immorality from the part of the Christians of the West. It consists in one of the worst expressions of pride, arrogance and egoism in the World History. But in Christianity, egoism, egotism and egocentric theories are the expression of a high level immorality.

As matter of fact, European colonialism and colonial academic endeavors fully reflect Biblical expressions ascribed to Satan himself, as Isaiah specifies: “I will ascend…I will raise…I will sit… I will ascend…I will make myself like the Most High” (14:13-14). Western European and North American pseudo-Christians must have no doubt of what comes after pride and egoism. Isaiah points it out for them in just the next verse (14:15): “But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit”. This is the wretched place into which very soon North American and Western European nations will find themselves for having committed innumerable atrocious crimes against the lands and the nations that they colonized, depersonalized, and deprived of a) identity, b) integrity, c) traditions, d) resources, and e) independent political volition, through an entire set of deception techniques and systematized falsehood.

As long as this vicious egoistic and egocentric attitude prevails and remains unchallenged in the West, the local pseudo-Christians must be fully aware that they bear responsibility as accomplices of they governments and that they stand in full opposition to Jesus and his words: “whoever exalts himself will be humbled” (Matthew 23:12).

True Christians in Western Europe and North America, if any, instead of talking nonsensical stories about conspiracy theories, must get a clear vision of the conspiracy acts that their corrupt governments and Freemasonic academicians have perpetrated over the past 300 years. They must therefore stand up, take to the streets, and bring down the forgery ateliers and the Satanic lodges that devised these schemes and invented the fake divisions that triggered the death spiral in the provinces of the Ottoman Empire that sheer cacophony led us to the misnomer of ‘Middle East’. Their voices, if any, must reach the darkness of the Whitehall, the Buckingham, the Élysée, the Hôtel Matignon, the White House, the State Department, the Pentagon and the other neuralgic centers of today’s Satanic power. Christian voices must raise up in the West, terminating the apathy of the high accomplices and they should echo the question Paul made to the Corinthians: “For who makes you different from anyone else? (1 Corinthians 4:7).

So, if Paul is right is eliminating boasting from the lives of the Christians (“Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded…by the law of faith” – Romans 3:27), today’s Christians in Western Europe and America must denounce the formation of the vicious Euro-centric academic approach and system and condemn its calamitous projection on the rest of the world. If they want to be present as Christians in other lands that were not ‘Western’ before the beginning of the European Era of Colonialism (1492 CE), they must follow Jesus’ example and go there to serve – as per the local values, ideals, concepts, faiths and virtues, not theirs. Jesus reportedly made “himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant” (Philippians 2:7).  If these Biblical excerpts form the foundations of the Christian faith, these values and attitudes have to be displayed by the Western countries, and if this is not the case, Christians in the West have to clearly and effectively dissociate themselves for their governments and states, denouncing and preventing the iniquity carried out by Paris, London and Washington D.C. Otherwise, they should not be surprised by the forthcoming tribulation that they deserve.

And for those among these pseudo-Christians, who are fully aware of the Christian sources but dare shamelessly propagate silly concepts and misinterpretation schemes like the stupidly awaited ‘rapture’ at the End of Time, the punishment will come soon and it will be as terrible as their theological fornication.

And what does it matter whether these pseudo-Christians believe they are right in their purpose and true in their faith? World History is full of examples of hypocritical people who thought of themselves as ‘righteous’ but ended in the Hell. The forthcoming developments will demonstrate how false these pseudo-Christian doctors and pastors have been, and will prove that, despite their ceaseless evocations of Christian sources and Biblical excerpts, their real master is Satan. But it will be too late for all of their followers who will also vanish in Eternal Fire.

Καὶ τῶνδ’ ὅμοιον εἴ τι μὴ πείθω· τί γάρ; Tὸ μέλλον ἥξει. Kαὶ σύ μ’ ἐν τάχει παρὼν ἄγαν γ’ ἀληθόμαντιν οἰκτίρας ἐρεῖς. (‘What does it matter now if men believe or no? What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside, To murmur in pity that my words were true’). Aeschylus, Agamemnon, 1239-1241 (Cassandra addressing the chorus)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Fake Caliphate ISIS, the Fake Christians of the West, and the true Islamic Caliphate

By Prof. Muhammad Shamsaddin Megalommatis

early caliphates

The Islamic Caliphate as a historical institution

The historical Islamic Caliphate was the central institution that governed the societies and ruled the lives of the Muslims for ca. 1300 years; in doing so, it also determined the lives of non-Muslims who lived in its vast territories. Not all the religions were viewed uniformly by the Caliphatic authorities and by those exercising power in the name of the Caliph. The Christians, the Jews, the Sabians and the Mandaeans were considered as People of the Book, a Quranic – Islamic concept that describes the case of earlier revelations of the Divine Law by God through Holy Books sent to other peoples. Polytheistic and idolatrous systems were however reprimanded; Manichaism was opposed, although its founder, Mani, had composed 400 years before Muhammad books that were considered as divinely inspired by his followers from NW Africa to China.

The socioeconomic conditions differed per period, per province, and per dynasty. The Islamic Caliphate was not a uniform system of government; from Omayyad Damascus to Abbasid Baghdad to Omayyad Granada to Mameluk Cairo to Ottoman Istanbul the differences in the system and the style of government were great. Philosophical – ideological – theological differences impacted the Islamic Caliphate and its practices differently from time to time and from dynasty to dynasty. Not all the Muslims accepted the Caliphate as rightful power and decision-making system in the Islamic world, and this does not originate only from the Shia – Sunni clash which had in general little impact (although the early Shia opposition to Omayyad Damascus brought this dynasty to an end before completing 100 years in power).

Prophet Muhammad’s State was quite different from the Historical Caliphates

One must clarify one critical issue at this point. Although all the Caliphs and the slowly emerged within Sunni Islam Sheikhulislams (a counterweight to the Pope) ruled in the name of Islam, incessantly evoking the divine revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad and the Prophet’s preaching, teachings, discourses, speeches and explanations (known as the Hadith), there is no full evidence that the Islamic Caliphate as it has been known across the ages was an acceptable form of government for Prophet Muhammad himself.

As a matter of fact, Prophet Muhammad – from either Medina or Mecca – ruled the Islamic State in his quality of Prophet (nabi) and Messenger of God (rasul-Allah), and not as a caliph (as it happened in the Islamic State after his death), a military ruler (like Hannibal or Attila), a republican figure (like Caesar or Pericles), a divine emperor and ‘son of god’ (as it was practiced in Babylonia and many other ancient empires), let alone a god (as it happened in Ancient Egypt). Analytically observing the way the early Islamic State was ruled by Prophet Muhammad until his death (622 – 632 CE from Medina first, and only after 630 from Mecca) and comparing it to the practices of the different Caliphatic dynasties, one finds enormous differences.

Prophet Muhammad’s state was a very small institution limited to basics, because social interaction and deliberations prevailed, and in addition, the presence of the Prophet was a catalyst in the successive meetings that were constantly taking place. Directly addressing the average people, Prophet Muhammad did not find any value in sophisticated social and/or governmental hierarchy. His state was smaller and weaker than early Sumerian states that antedated him for 3600 years ( ! ), and this was a clear choice, not a condition of underdevelopment.

Prophet Muhammad’s state was bigger only than that envisioned by Karl Marx for the second stage after the termination of the capitalist state, namely the Communist society; but that stage, which was never attended in History, represented merely a stateless society with no class difference. Prophet Muhammad eliminated class difference within a minimal state.

And certainly Prophet Muhammad’s state was very different from the supposedly ‘ideal’ utopian states that many European Renaissance authors envisioned, notably the City of the Sun (La città del Sole) by Tommaso Campanella (1602), and the likes, because there was no secluded hierarchy atop of the society. However, those fake ideals (Utopia, New Atlantis) included indeed contradictory elements that could only tear down those unrealistic approaches or simply turn them to nightmares; as a matter of fact, ‘ideal society’ and ‘hierarchical administration’ are the most opposite concepts in the world – to the extent that they totally exclude one another.

What we can retain from the aforementioned is that the Islamic correctness of the historical Islamic Caliphate is a highly debatable subject.

Peaceful co-existence of different nations and religious systems within the Islamic Caliphate

Compared to other empires, the Islamic Caliphate was a very tolerant institution and form of government; modern Western historians, journalists, writers and ideologues, who are on the payroll of various agencies and lobbies, have repeatedly tried to tarnish the image of the Islamic Caliphate. Of course, it is clear that the main historical state of the Muslims and all its dependencies that paid allegiance to the Caliphate were not angelic institutions. However, one cannot even dare to compare the Islamic Caliphate, in any of its forms, to the cruelty of the Christian Western and Eastern Roman Empires, to the barbarism of the Frankish Merovingian and Carolingian kingdoms, and to the savageness of the kingdoms of France, England, Spain and Portugal that fought incessantly religious wars one upon the other for many long centuries.

The average Westerners have fallen victim of two systematic, very wide, very deep, and at least 2 centuries long efforts of their academics and sociopolitical elite:

1- the a) falsification and b) the embellishment of their own, really execrable Western European and American History of bloodshed, fornication, religious intolerance, criminal colonialism, serial genocides, and consummately anti-Christian identity

and

2- the blackening of the Islamic Caliphate History, which also involved a systematic concealment of every historical truth that would reveal the greatness of the Islamic Civilization, the tolerance of Islam as religion, the advancement of the Islamic Sciences, the height of the Islamic Philosophy, the beauty of the Islamic Art, the freedom of the Islamic mindset, and the strength of the Islamic Spirituality (notably Mohyieldin Ibn Arabi).

Islamic Times’ Christians preferred the Islamic Caliphate to Rome or Constantinople

At the times of the historical wars between the Islamic Caliphates and the Eastern Roman Empire (633 – 1099), the Islamic State was so more tolerant than Constantinople that the Christians, who lived in the Caliphate, preferred to be subjects of the Islamic State than to be placed under the authority of either Constantinople or Rome.

The filthy liars of today’s Fake Christianity that thrives in Protestant Anti-Christian territories such as the monstrous tyrannies of UK and USA have done their best to hide every historical evidence that testifies to the aforementioned claim.

This proves that they are not real but fake Christians, because truth is a value for Christianity as well. The New Testament is very precise on this point (1 John 3:19 / Greek text: Τεκνία, μὴ ἀγαπῶμεν λόγῳ μηδὲ τῇ γλώσσῃ ἀλλὰ ἐν ἔργῳ καὶ ἀληθείᾳ. 19 ἐν τούτῳ γνωσόμεθα ὅτι ἐκ τῆς ἀληθείας ἐσμέν / English translation: My little sons, love we not in word, neither in tongue, but in work and truth. 19 In this thing we know, that we be of truth – advice in this regard: DO NOT USE THE SATANIC KING JAMES VERSION – IT IS A DELIBERATELY FALSE TRANSLATION, A FREEMASONIC TRASH).

In striking opposition to, and full rejection of, the Satanic lies of the Anti-Christians of the West, I will make herewith known authentic historical sources that testify to what I claim, i.e. that the Islamic Caliphate was a far more tolerant and acceptable state for Christians than the evil pseudo-Christian Roman and European empires, states and realms.

1. The monstrosity of the pseudo-Christian Emperor Heraclius

This is what Severus of Al Ashmunein (Hermupolis) writes in his venerated ‘History of the Patriarchs of the Coptic Church of Alexandria’ about the cruelty of the evil, Satanic, pseudo-Christian Emperor Heraclius of the Eastern Roman Empire. Here you will read what a supposedly Christian Emperor did – not to Muslims but surprisingly enough – to Christians in Egypt just few years before the Islamic armies liberated the Nile Valley and turned it from an Eastern Roman to an Islamic Caliphatic province – to the greatest benefit of the indigenous Christians, the Copts who are the descendents of the Ancient Egyptians.

“These were the years during which Heraclius and the Colchian ruled over the land of Egypt. And on account of the greatness of the trials and the straits and the affliction which the Colchian brought down upon the orthodox, in order that they might enter into the Chalcedonian faith, a countless number of them went astray, some of them through persecution, and some by bribes and honours, and some by persuasion and deceit. So that even Cyrus, bishop of Niciu, and Victor, bishop of the Faiyum, and many others denied the orthodox faith, because they had not obeyed the injunctions of the blessed Father Benjamin, and had not hidden themselves as the others did; for the Colchian caught them with the fishing-line of his error, and so they went astray after the impure Chalcedonian council. And Heraclius seized the blessed Mennas, brother of the Father Benjamin, the patriarch, and brought great trials upon him, and caused lighted torches to be held to his sides until the fat of his body oozed forth and flowed upon the ground, and knocked out his teeth because he confessed the faith; and finally commanded that a sack should be filled with sand, and the holy Mennas placed within it, and drowned in the sea. For Heraclius the misbeliever had charged them, saying : «If any one of them says that the council of Chalcedon is true, let him go; but drown in the sea those that say it is erroneous and false.» Therefore they did as the prince bade them, and cast Mennas into the sea. For they took the sack, and conveyed him to a distance of seven bowshots from the land, and said to him : «Say that the council of Chalcedon is good and not otherwise, and we will release thee.» But Mennas would not do so. And they did this with him three times; and when he refused they drowned him. Thus they were unable to vanquish this champion, Mennas, but he conquered them by his Christian patience.”

Excerpt from: Severus of Al Ashmunein (Hermopolis), History of the Patriarchs of the Coptic church of Alexandria  (1904) Part 2  Peter I – Benjamin I (661 AD). Patrologia Orientalis 1 pp. 383-518 (pp.119-256 of text)

I am sure that you will agree with me that never ever a Muslim carried out this abominable torture to any enemy, irrespective of the enemy’s identity and belief, anytime anywhere and under any circumstances whatsoever.

Not even today’s fake Muslims and CIA-Mossad agents of the Fake Caliphate ISIS have carried out similar atrocities. (About them: Senior Commander of ISIS is a ‘retired’ US General Paul Vallely in: https://hwaairfan.wordpress.com/2014/10/02/senior-commander-of-isis-is-a-retired-us-general-paul-vallely/). Perhaps, the villainous, uncultured and barbaric beasts who are employed by the aforementioned Satanic institutions failed to come across the Coptic Chronicle of Severus (Sawiris) of Al Ashmunein, which would – unfortunately for their cases – enrich their perverse minds and evil souls with similar evildoing that they, due to their evilness, would consider adopting as method.

But as you see, the Ancient Romans were wise enough to understand that ….. Quos vult Iupiter perdere dementat prius (whom Roman god Jupiter would destroy, he first makes mad). Never mind! Today’s Evangelicals and Zionist bogus-Christians are worse – that’s why they are all cursed and they will soon perish in eternal damnation.

2. The generosity and respect expressed by Amr Ibn al Aas, General of the Islamic army and “trusty companion” of “the prince of the Muslims”, toward the Coptic Church and the previously persecuted Patriarch (who was forced to hide in order to survive under the Eastern Roman occupation of Egypt)

“When Amr took full possession of the city of Alexandria, and settled its affairs, that infidel, the governor of Alexandria, feared, he being both prefect and patriarch of the city under the Romans, that Amr would kill him; therefore he sucked a poisoned signet-ring, and died on the spot. But Sanutius, the believing duke, made known to Amr the circumstances of that militant father, the patriarch Benjamin, and how he was a fugitive from the Romans, through fear of them. Then Amr, son of Al-Asi, wrote to the provinces of Egypt a letter, in which he said : «There is protection and security for the place where Benjamin, the patriarch of the Coptic Christians is, and peace from God; therefore let him come forth secure and tranquil, and administer the affairs of his Church, and the government of his nation». Therefore when the holy Benjamin heard this, he returned to Alexandria with great joy, wearing the crown of patience and sore conflict which had befallen the orthodox people through their persecution by the heretics, after having been absent during thirteen years, ten of which were years of Heraclius, the misbelieving Roman, with the three years before the Muslims conquered Alexandria. When Benjamin appeared, the people and the whole city rejoiced, and made his arrival known to Sanutius, the duke who believed in Christ, who had settled with the commander Amr that the patriarch should return, and had received a safe-conduct from Amr for him. Thereupon Sanutius went to the commander and announced that the patriarch had arrived, and Amr gave orders that Benjamin should be brought before him with honour and veneration and love. And Amr, when he saw the patriarch, received him with respect, and said to his companions and private friends : «Verily in all the lands of which we have taken possession hitherto I have never seen a man of God like this man». For the Father Benjamin was beautiful of countenance, excellent in speech, discoursing with calmness and dignity.

Then Amr turned to him, and said to him : «Resume the government of all thy churches and of thy people, and administer their affairs. And if thou wilt pray for me, that I may go to the West and to Pentapolis, and take possession of them, as I have of Egypt, and return to thee in safety and speedily, I will do for thee all that thou shalt ask of me.» Then the holy Benjamin prayed for Amr, and pronounced an eloquent discourse, which made Amr and those present with him marvel, and which contained words of exhortation and much profit for those that heard him; and he revealed certain matters to Amr, and departed from his presence honoured and revered. And all that the blessed father said to the commander Amr, son of Al-Asi, he found true, and not a letter of it was unfulfilled.”

The above two paragraphs are able to automatically delete thousands of tons of books and articles written by pro-Israeli, Evangelical and other bogus-Christian authors who promote hatred against Islam in order to trigger the trouble that will send them first to the Eternal Hell.

3. Description of Prophet Muhammad by the genuine Christian Severus of Al Ashmunein

“And in those days Heraclius saw a dream in which it was said to him : «Verily there shall come against thee a circumcised nation, and they shall vanquish thee and take possession of the land». So Heraclius thought that they would be the Jews, and accordingly gave orders that all the Jews and Samaritans should be baptized in all the provinces which were under his dominion. But after a few days there appeared a man of the Arabs, from the southern districts, that is to say, from Mecca or its neighbourhood, whose name was Muhammad; and he brought back the worshippers of idols to the knowledge of the One God, and bade them declare that Muhammad was his apostle; and his nation were circumcised in the flesh, not by the law, and prayed towards the South, turning towards a place which they called the Kaabah. And he took possession of Damascus and Syria, and crossed the Jordan, and dammed it up. And the Lord abandoned the army of the Romans before him, as a punishment for their corrupt faith, and because of the anathemas uttered against them, on account of the council of Chalcedon, by the ancient fathers.”

This is the historical truth written by a true and faithful Christian – not today’s pro-Israeli bogus-Christian, European and American idiots who give their silly children Ancient Hebrew names to … hypothetically please Jesus in his second coming ( ! ) but what they will achieve instead will be to best guarantee their eternal damnation.

It is noteworthy that the true Christians of Egypt first appreciated Prophet Muhammad’s role in eliminating idolatry and polytheism from Arabia, and second rejoiced for the subsequent removal of the pseudo-Christian Eastern Roman tyranny from all the Oriental provinces of Constantinople.

4. Presentation of Caliph Hisham ibn Abd al-Malik (724-743) as a real friend of Christianity and as lover of Christian hymns

“And after him reigned Hishâm his brother, who was a God-fearing man according to the method of Islam, and loved all men; and he became the deliverer of the orthodox. For when he learnt that we Christians had had no patriarch in the East since Julian, the late patriarch of Antioch, in whose stead the bishop Elias had taken his seat, and that Elias also had died, he took a man named Athanasius, full of every spiritual grace, who also was a bishop, and gave him the patriarchate of Antioch. So the bishops laid their hands upon him in turn, and made him patriarch. This Athanasius wrote a synodical letter with learning and great humility to the blessed Father Patriarch Alexander, saying : «Verily I am unworthy of this degree on account of my sins; yet I have not been promoted by my own will, but by that of the prince». For he had known him before this time. So Alexander received the letter with joy, and then wrote an answer to it, asserting the unity of the faith, and containing good wishes and salutations. At the end he wrote thus : «We bless the prince Hishâm, and pray that he may enjoy a reign of many years, and overcome his enemies, so that he may do that which is right before the Lord». And he dismissed the envoys in peace.

After this, Hishâm wrote to Egypt, commanding that a receipt in his name should be given to everyone who paid the taxes, so that none might be unfairly treated, and that there might be no injustice in his dominions. So God gave him a prosperous reign, and he continued to rule for twenty-two years; and no war continued against him, but everyone that rose up against him was delivered by God into his hands, through the prayers of the two glorious patriarchs, Alexander at Alexandria and Athanasius at Antioch. Now the orthodox church at Damascus was adjoining the palace in which Hishâm resided. Then he commanded that the patriarch should build his house next to the prince’s reception-hall, because of his great love for him, so that he might hear him pray and read. For he often used to say to him : «When thou beginnest to pray at night I receive great comfort, and I cease to trouble about the affairs of the empire, and then sleep comes to me restfully». And Hishâm loved Athanasius greatly for that reason; and he gave great gifts to the churches and the Christians. And there was at his court a Muslim who greatly loved the orthodox churches, and he was named Ubaid Allah. And when the prince Hishâm saw him act so, he rejoiced greatly, and made him governor of Egypt, and commanded him to act with kindness towards all baptised Christians.”

The historical evidence is inexorable; one can produce thousands of examples. However, the aforementioned is quite sufficient for the scope of the present introductory article and fully indicative of the falsehood into which the Western nations have been entrapped.

In fact, there is only one way to achieve peace, concord, morality, and cultural integrity in the vast part of the earth that is inhabited by the Muslims; this is the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate and the elimination of all the current illegal, loathsome, treacherous administrations that have – all – been imposed by forces alien to the Islamic World and hateful of the Muslims and with the task to viciously destroy all the existing religions, eliminate all moral principles, ideals, values and concepts, turn the inhabitants to faithless materialistic beasts and thus prepare the way for the global ruler who will be none else than the Antichrist – whom Israel, America, Europe, NATO, all pro-Israeli pseudo-Christians, and the local rulers of all Muslim countries will accept as Jesus Christ in his fake second coming.

But of course, when I speak of an Islamic Caliphate, I mean a real, authentic Islamic Caliphate – not a fake trash invented by the filthy Satanic slaves of the CIA and the Mossad, who will all perish in eternal damnation along with their fabricated bogus-Jesus who is awaiting in the wings, being however known to those who can see him very clearly

without him seeing them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Germany cannot and will not save the European Union; but Berlin can save Germany through Eurasia!

As the economic crisis that started in 2009 underwent different stages, the role of Germany in saving the European Union has been highlighted. Several remedies were therefore invented in order to worthlessly keep countries like Greece, Portugal, Spain and Italy within the untenable union. Germany was greatly involved in the effort, because the successive Berlin administrations imagined that, by solving these ‘problems’, everything would return to normalcy and Germany would continue enjoying the locomotive-role that others invented for Europe’s no 1 economy. Unfortunately, this system of thought does not bode well for Germany’s future.

There has never been in post-WW II Germany a creative vision about what or how Germany should be after half a century or after one century, about Berlin’s role in Europe, Eurasia, and the world, and about Germany’s predestination as this has been indicated or rather prescribed by History. All this is due to the defeat-complex.

That this situation happens in a defeated country for some time is normal. That this situation is manipulated by other countries in order to be prolonged as long as possible is not normal.

The idea of an economic union of all the European countries could be normal at any moment of Europe’s History; but it would then be a loose union with no customs and with intense commercial exchange. You don’t need any common identity, religious uniformity or political affinity to achieve this.

The idea of a ‘political’ union of all the European countries could be possible in the past only by means of military invasion and forceful occupation; it was actually attempted by Napoleon Bonaparte with abominable results for him, his country, and Europe.

The idea, so intriguing and so fascinating, of the re-establishment of the Roman Empire does not signify any ‘political’ union of all the European countries, because simply the Roman Empire never envisioned, never needed, and never attempted to achieve such a target.

The aforementioned statement entails something very important, i.e. a reality that few people have understood; however, this reality functions by itself as a catalyst in today’s politics. If one confuses the concept of a ‘political’ union of all the European countries with the vision of the re-establishment of the Roman Empire, one will certainly bring about unprecedented division, seismic-level destruction in the continent (or rather sub-continent), and a dark future for many centuries. The reason is very simple; the aforementioned concept and vision are two theorems that are diametrically opposed to one another. They consist in two contradictory elements that will definitely tear down every effort to base one territory on these two centripetal dynamics.

The modern project of a political – economic unification of Europe through multifaceted and multilevel deception proved to be even more misplaced. As vision, it was sick and inhuman. As materialization, it corrupted the people and the elites; it always included a myriad of contradictory elements that in numerous cases heralded its very bad end.

Example: if the project reflects a great vision and fails to be founded on an accurate perception and understanding of the existing structures, data, identities and possibilities, it will be doomed. And it will be doomed because the European territory does not offer the chance of a uniform economy which has always been so much sought after by the Brussels apprentice magicians.

If a project promises a great vision, but in the process it tolerates and therefore depends on thousands of petty compromises about let’s say the prices of agricultural products (as it happened), certainly there was never a great vision involved but mere lies, and the project was simply the result of a false and deceitful vision; and this is tantamount to conspiracy, machination, manipulation and coercion.

Either in 1750 or in 1850 or in 1950 or in 2050 the totality of the European territory cannot be united either culturally or economically or politically under terms of uniformity – which is exactly what the Brussels paranoid bureaucracy considered itself powerful enough to undertake and was actually idiotic enough not to timely realize that it does not work.

Over the past 60 years during which the malefic project of European Union has been developed, there was indeed one single moment of sincerity, veracity, and truthfulness that definitely blows up the entire project, fully unmasking its treacherous, mendacious and ominous nature. This occurred in the middle December 2003, when Jacques Chirac, president of France, declared very clearly the following, historic sentence:

“Le communautarisme ne saurait être le choix de la France” (which means in English: ‘the communitarianism could not be France’s choice’ / see details of the French president’s discourse in article published on 17 December 2003 here: http://www1.rfi.fr/actufr/articles/048/article_25519.asp).

This is incredible!

And it is incredible, because France is a EU member state, and more importantly, not only a founding member state, but a very influential one.

If France does not accept communitarianism in its own territory, how can Paris accept communitarianism in the rest of the European Union? We can immediately conclude that France will sooner or later oppose the communitarian reality of today’s European Union in an attempt to impose its catastrophic, loathsome and tyrannical version of laicity.

And what happens to the legendary European Commission uniformity measures? Will Brussels accept uniformity in agricultural prices and diversity in social organization? Certainly not.

So, this little sentence of colossal importance, uttered by one of the major leading contributors to the infamous EU project, reveals that, when territorial completion and economic integration will be achieved as per the existing secret plan, some theoreticians will demand Brussels to put an end to European communitarianism, uniforming cultures, behavioral systems, faiths and the overall context of daily life – in the same manner laws and regulations have already been unified.

This simply reveals that the overall project was undertaken as a systematic conspiracy of which every now and then small parts are ‘newly’ revealed to the marginalized, besotted and anesthetized populations of Europe’s targeted nations.

All this will turn also against Germany and its communitarian values and traditions. However, this will only be the last attack against Germany’s identity and the final aspect of Germany’s utilization by Brussels. In front of this reality and in view of the ostensible economic troubles, Germany must fully revise its participation in, and utilization by, the shameful EU project which is also responsible for the current hostilities and unnecessary bloodshed in Ukraine.

As economy, psychology, behavioral system, and culture are intertwined in every nation, some basic truths must be reassessed and reasserted as regards Germany’s current situation and future perspectives.

1. One unified and uniform Europe from the Urals to Lisbon and from Iceland to Malta is impossible; even an enforcement is not worthy the results because they will only involve conflicts, bloodshed, and mutual destruction.

2. A loose union of Europe’s national states is preliminarily rejected by the Brussels bureaucrats as it is not compatible with their unrealistic and calamitous dreams. It could be feasible, but it is quite doubtful that it would be beneficial for Germany.

3. The forthcoming financial collapse and bankruptcy of France, Italy and England must become the irrevocable tombstone of the European Union. Germany should stop paying / guaranteeing for the debts of others, and this will happen through an immediate exit from Euro, return to Mark, and withdrawal from EU and NATO.

4. The current socioeconomic realities allow two different, efficient and constructive unions of states to be formed on European soil.

A. A smaller, but wealthier and far more influential, Northern European Union must be shaped around Germany. It can involve Luxembourg, Holland, Denmark and the other Scandinavian countries, the Baltic countries, and several Central European countries, notably Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. As Germany is home to Catholic and Protestants, the Northern European Union will ensure concord and prosperity for Central European Catholics and Northern European Protestants. The natural capital of the Union should be Hamburg.

B. A larger, but less wealthy, Mediterranean Union can then be formed around Rome and Italy. It can involve countries spanning from Portugal to Turkey, including also Spain, Catalonia, Galicia, Malta, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Greece, Malta, Cyprus and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. Two parallel capitals should then be proclaimed, namely Rome and Istanbul. As already indicated, cases of secession will be welcome, and Occitania (France’s southern half), Bask land, Corsica and Sardinia will be fully accredited members of the Mediterranean Union. As a natural home to Catholics, Orthodox, and Muslims, the Mediterranean Union will have all the chances to be extended to, and gradually incorporate, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Saudi Arabia – thus becoming reminiscent of the Roman Empire in its greatest extent under Emperor Trajan.

The two unions will be able to cooperate as independent union of states at all levels.

The territories on Northern France, Brittany (that will secede from Paris), Scotland and Wales (that will secede from London), Ireland, Belgium, and England must be left out of both unions. In fact, for almost 60 years after the end of WW II, Paris did not stop scheming in order to create and manipulate the European Union for France’s own benefit, whereas London has incessantly done its best to produce troubles and obstacles that would make of the European Union a harmless entity for the interests of City.

German will be the official language of the Northern European Union.

Italian, Spanish, Turkish and Arabic will be the official languages of the Mediterranean Union.

5. Germany’s perspectives are not necessarily limited in the aforementioned nucleus of Northern and Central European countries. Germany’s natural Drang nach Osten must become the main axis of the foreign policy of the country that will be revitalized after all EU burdens are removed and DM becomes the only currency for all the countries of the Northern European Union. In the 21st century, the old German imperial direction hinges on Russia, Kazakhstan and Central Asia, and through them on China.

6. European Union, as a matter of fact, was invented by French, Belgian, Dutch and English Freemasons and Zionists as a means of continuation of their onslaught on the German nation, and as a tool for Germany’s perpetual subordination to the – lethal for Germany – interests of Paris, London and Tel Aviv. If they invented the scheme as per which Germany pays for all the economic troubles of the European Union, this is not only because they did not want to share the burden, but because they wanted to prevent Bonn (and more recently Berlin) from fully assuming (as certainly Germany has always had the right to) an independent foreign policy, which involves greater military expenses. As long as Germany is a NATO member state, it is good that Berlin does not spend much. But a fully independent German foreign policy necessitates greater military expenses and full nuclear arsenal.

7. It will not be difficult for Germany to acquire nuclear arms without even storing them on German territory. Technologically updating Russia’s arsenal, by means of a military treaty and thanks to the ensuing cooperation, is the way for Germany to easily acquire the military equipment necessary for an ambitious Ostpolitik, which will only be the prelude for a Weltpolitik.

8. Russia must be seen by Germany as its own economic hinterland. The vast territories of Siberia, Arctic, and Kazakhstan-Central Asia must become the ‘Far West’ for Germany’s investors and must turn out to be the Ultimate Thule, i.e. the Hyperborean Promised Land where German, Russian and Chinese will work together for many diverse, globally-leading projects. Anticipating America’s forthcoming demise and decomposition, Berlin must impose a German-Russian solution on Ukraine, and duly adjust the local situation to the common interests of Berlin and Moscow that so much diverge from those of Germany’s worst enemies, namely Paris, London and Washington D.C.

9. The theoretical background to which the new, rising German intellectual-political-economic class must adhere is the theory of the Eurasiatic Landmass and its unity, integrity and impermeability. With Germany leading the Northern European Union, with the Mediterranean Union an ally in the South – Southwest – Southeast, and with Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and China as major partners in the East, the way will be open for the incorporation of the Indian Subcontinent and of Southeast Asia – Indonesia into Eurasia, the world’s most magnificent powerhouse and alliance that will enable Germanness to fully radiate at a global level and as never before.

For the above to be properly undertaken, a redefinition of Germanness and a reassertion of German national identity, cultural integrity, and traditional values must be fully spelled out and duly contextualized. The undeservedly targeted and unjustly victimized nation cannot save EU, this immoral, vicious and inhuman project of the Anglo-French Freemasonry, but can certainly save itself, and through Eurasia save the entire world from all sorts of perfidious plans providing for regional conflicts, global wars, and apocalyptic catastrophes.

An excellent example of today’s German political elite’s useless effort to save Europe and unrealistic assessment of the ongoing European economic crisis is provided by an article published in Die Welt “Nachbarn lassen deutsche Wirtschaft wackeln” by Jan Dams and Martin Greive (http://www.welt.de/wirtschaft/article132974153/Nachbarn-lassen-deutsche-Wirtschaft-wackeln.html). The title is quite indicative (in English: ‘Neighbors can wiggle German economy‘); it shows clearly that Germany cannot continue having the troublesome southern European realms as partners. I herewith republish the entire article, adding a rough English translation by Google at the end.

Nachbarn lassen deutsche Wirtschaft wackeln

Die Finanzkrise hatte das Land gut überstanden. Es schien nur aufwärts zu gehen. Doch jetzt ist die deutsche Wirtschaft nicht mehr immun gegen ihr Umfeld. Denn Nachbarstaaten fallen in Krisen zurück.

Seit Monaten gab es Anzeichen dafür, dass es in der deutschen Wirtschaft nicht mehr so rund läuft wie noch vor anderthalb Jahren. Im zweiten Quartal rutschte die Wirtschaftsleistung leicht ins Minus. Die Wachstumsprognose für das Gesamtjahr von 1,8 Prozent schien in Gefahr. Und nun das: Die Aufträge für die deutsche Industrie sind im August so stark eingebrochen wie seit Januar 2009 nicht mehr, der Zeit der großen Krise.

Auf ein Minus von 5,7 Prozent beläuft sich das Loch in den Auftragsbüchern. Im Juli dagegen hatte es noch ein deutliches Plus von fast fünf Prozent gegeben. Von der Nachrichtenagentur Reuters befragte Analysten hatten zwar mit einem Rückgang gerechnet. Nur fiel der in den Prognosen mit minus 2,5 Prozent bei weitem nicht so stark aus. “Die Auftragseingänge wurden im Juli positiv und im August negativ durch die späte Lage der Schulferien beeinflusst”, erklärte das Wirtschaftsministerium.

Das ist allerdings nur einer der Gründe für die schlechte Entwicklung: Das Umfeld ist einfach schlecht. Seit Monaten schon. Der Euro-Raum erholt sich nicht. Frankreich und Italien, zwei der wichtigsten deutschen Wirtschaftspartner innerhalb der Währungsunion, sind zurück in die hausgemachte Krise geschliddert.

Die internationalen Krisen wie in der Ukraine oder dem Irak tun ihr Übriges. Die Stimmung ist mies. Und deshalb halten sich die Unternehmen mit Investitionen und damit mit Aufträgen zurück. Selbst das von Berufs wegen zum Optimismus verdammte Bundeswirtschaftsministerium nennt die “zögerliche Wirtschaftsentwicklung im Euro-Raum” und die “Verunsicherung der Wirtschaft durch die geopolitischen Ereignisse” als Gründe.

Ausland und Inland bestellen weniger

Entsprechend lesen sich auch die detaillierten Zahlen: Die Nachfrage aus dem Ausland fiel um 8,4 Prozent. Die Aufträge aus der Euro-Zone nahmen um 5,7 Prozent ab, die aus dem Rest der Welt sogar um 9,9 Prozent. Die Inlandsaufträge schrumpften um zwei Prozent. Gute Nachrichten fehlen. Kein Wunder, dass die Nachfrage nach Investitionsgütern wie Maschinen und Fahrzeugen besonders wegbrach. Hier gab es ein Minus von 8,5 Prozent. Lediglich die Bestellungen von Konsumgütern wuchsen dagegen um 3,7 Prozent.

Der Internationale Währungsfonds (IWF) wird nach Informationen der “Welt” seine Wachstumsprognose für Deutschland senken. Der Fonds rechnet für dieses und das nächste Jahr jeweils mit einer Zunahme des Bruttoinlandsprodukts (BIP) um rund eineinhalb Prozent. Im Juli hatten die Experten für 2014 noch ein Plus von 1,9 Prozent vorausgesagt, für 2015 einen Anstieg um 1,7 Prozent. Ursache für die Korrektur seien die Krisen in der Ukraine und im Nahen Osten.

Auch das Münchener ifo-Institut blickt skeptisch in die Zukunft: “Die Wirtschaftsleistung des Euro-Raums dürfte im vierten Quartal nur moderat um 0,2 Prozent gegen das Vorquartal steigen”, glauben die Experten. “Die geopolitischen Unwägbarkeiten belasten weiterhin das Vertrauen der Wirtschaftsakteure”, begründet das ifo-Institut die Lage.

Die Bundesregierung ist trotz der deutlichen Eintrübung noch nicht in Alarmbereitschaft. “Wir sollten nicht in eine Angststarre verfallen. Wir stecken nicht ansatzweise in einer so tiefen Krise wie 2009”, sagte SPD-Vizefraktionschef Hubertus Heil. “Aber wir gehen sicherlich konjunkturell in raueres Wetter.” Heil schlägt vor, Unternehmen über großzügigere Abschreibungsregeln wieder zu mehr Investitionen zu bewegen. Den Vorschlag will er zwar nicht als Reaktion auf die sich verschlechternde Wirtschaftslage verstanden wissen. Denn schon seit langer Zeit investieren Unternehmen in Deutschland wenig. “Aber wenn es uns konjunkturell hilft, umso besser”, sagt Heil.

Kommt das Konjunkturprogramm?

Die Union hält allerdings andere Ziele für wichtiger. “Für mögliche Abschreibungs-Erleichterungen sind derzeit keine Finanzierungsspielräume vorhanden”, sagt Unions-Fraktionsvize Michael Fuchs der “Welt”. Oberste Priorität habe die Konsolidierung des Staatshaushaltes. “Danach sollten wir uns zuerst Gedanken über den Abbau der kalten Progression machen“, so Fuchs.

Der CDU-Wirtschaftspolitiker will Unternehmen über einen anderen Hebel helfen. “Eine weitere Entlastung ist bei den Rentenbeiträgen möglich”, sagt Fuchs. Die Rentenkasse ist mit 1,8 Monatsausgaben sehr gut gefüllt. “Durch eine Absenkung der Beiträge zum 1. Januar 2015 würden Investitionen der Unternehmen und Binnennachfrage in Deutschland einen erheblichen Schub erhalten”, sagt Fuchs.

Im Bundeswirtschaftsministerium will man noch nichts von einem Konjunkturprogramm wissen. Gabriels Beamte geben sich gewohnt optimistisch: “Sobald sich die Verunsicherung etwas legt, werden sich die Auftriebskräfte wieder durchsetzen.” Dass die Politik der schwarz-roten Koalition mit Rentenplänen und Mindestlohn das Wachstum langfristig belasten dürfte, ignoriert man dagegen lieber geflissentlich.

Heil hat für den Fall eines Wirtschaftseinbruchs aber schon ein Rezept parat: “Schon in der Finanzkrise hat die Kooperation von Unternehmen, Gewerkschaften und Politik gut funktioniert und Schlimmeres verhindert.” Doch wenn bereits solch ein Szenario durchgespielt wird, zeigt das, wie groß die Verunsicherung inzwischen ist.

Neighbors can wiggle German economy

The financial crisis, the country had survived. It just seemed to go up. But now the German economy is not immune to their environment. Because neighboring states fall back into crises.

For months, there were signs that it no longer runs around in the German economy as one and a half years ago. In the second quarter economic performance slipped slightly into the red. The growth forecast for the full year of 1.8 percent seemed in danger. And now this: The orders for the German industry are so strong in August not more broken as in January 2009, the time of great crisis.

On a decline of 5.7 percent, the hole in the order book amounts. In July, however there had been a significant increase of nearly five percent. Interviewed by Reuters analysts were expecting a decline. Just fell in the forecasts with minus 2.5 percent by far not as strong. The orders were positive in July and negatively impacted by the late position of the school holidays in August,” said the Ministry of Economy.

This is only one of the reasons for the poor development: The environment is simply bad. For months now. The euro zone does not recover. France and Italy, two of the most important German business partners within the monetary union, geschliddert back in the homemade crisis.

The international crises such as the Ukraine and Iraq do the rest. The mood is bad. And therefore hold the company back with investments and with orders. Even the damned by profession for optimism Federal Ministry of Economics called the hesitant economic development in the euro areaand the uncertainty of the economy by the geopolitical eventsas reasons.

Foreign and domestic order less

The demand from abroad dropped by 8.4 percent: According also read the detailed figures. The orders from the euro zone fell by 5.7 percent, from the rest of the world rose 9.9 percent. Domestic orders fell by two percent. Good news is missing. No wonder that the demand for capital goods such as machinery and vehicles particularly broke away. There was a decline of 8.5 percent. However, only the orders of consumer goods grew by 3.7 percent.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) cut its growth forecast for Germany to information the world”. The Fund expects for this year and next, each with an increase of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by about one and a half percent. In July, the experts still had predicted an increase of 1.9 percent for 2014, for 2015, an increase of 1.7 percent. Cause of the correction are the crises in Ukraine and the Middle East.

Also, the Munich-based ifo Institute looks skeptical in the future: “The economic performance of the euro area is expected to rise only moderately in the fourth quarter to 0.2 percent from the previous quarter,” the experts believe. The geopolitical uncertainties continue to weigh on the confidence of economic agents“, the Ifo Institute founded the situation.

The federal government is not on alert despite the significant downturn. “We should not fall into a fear paralysis., We do not begin to put into such a deep crisis like 2009,” said SPD parliamentary leader Vice Heil. But we are certainly cyclical in rougher weather.Healing proposes to move company generous depreciation rules again to more investment. The proposal he does not want to be understood as a response to the deteriorating economic situation though. Because for a long time companies invest in Germany little. But if it helps us economically, the better,” says Heil.

If the stimulus package?

However, the Union considers other objectives to be more important. For further depreciation facilitation no financial leeway at the moment,” says Union Group Vice Michael Fuchs of the world”. The first priority was the consolidation of the state budget. Then we should first thoughts on the elimination of bracket creep make,” says Fuchs.

The CDU politician economy will help companies through a different lever. Another relief is available on pension contributions,” says Fuchs. The pension fund is very well stocked with 1.8-month spending. By lowering the posts 1 January 2015 investment would the companies and domestic demand in Germany receive a significant boost,” says Fuchs.

In the Federal Economics Ministry wants nothing more to do with an economic stimulus program. Gabriel’s officials give themselves accustomed optimistic: As soon as the uncertainty puts something, the buoyancy forces will prevail again.” That the policy of blackred coalition with pension plans and the minimum wage is likely to weigh on growth in the long term, ignoring the other hand, rather studiously.

Salvation is for the case of an economic downturn but already a recipe at hand: Even in the financial crisis, the cooperation of companies, trade unions and policy has worked well and prevented the worst.” But when a scenario is already such a played out, it shows how large the uncertainty is now.

Syria, Assad, US, Turkey and the Concealed Reality: the Aramaean Identity of Syria

 

Ottoman Provinces in Syria

By Prof. Muhammad Shamsaddin Megalommatis

In the name of fake principles and worthless values that they don’t respect in their homelands, the tyrannical gangster-regimes of the West have undertaken since 2011 an overtly murderous, genocidal project against Syria with the utmost ferocity. Playing on almost 100 years old colonial background of multifaceted falsification, distortion and corruption, the loathsome regimes of America, England and France coined the ridiculous term ‘Arab Spring’ for what was never a spring and for countries that were never ‘Arab’.

In a recently published article (Arab Nation Hoax: Geared to Falsify Islamic History & Ruin Varied Nations disfiguratively Named Arab / http://www.turkishnews.com/en/content/2014/09/09/arab-nation-hoax-geared-to-falsify-islamic-history-ruin-varied-nations-disfiguratively-named-arab/), I explained analytically why all the countries from Mauritania to Oman and from Syria and Iraq to Sudan and Yemen are not Arab (with the exception of Saudi Arabia, the only truly Arab country in the world), do not have anything to do with the Arabic Nation, and cannot therefore be accepted as falsely described by the Western term.

The immorality of the deliberate foreign aggression was shared among the leading Western countries (that are ruled by the Freemasonic lodges and the Zionist lobby) and their local stooges, notably the fake kings of Saudi Arabia and Jordan, the trashy emirs of Kuwait, Qatar and UAE, and the ignorant, uneducated and idiotic trash of Recep Erdogan, Turkey’s charlatanesque president who is a Freemason pretty much like his chimpanzee-like prime minister, the Ashkenazi crypto-Jew Ahmet Davutooglu. Different motives brought all these gangsters together and, with a great deal of bribery and logistical support plus the dispatch of special units disguised as ‘Syrian rebels’, they spread destruction to a country that for many long decades had not harmed anyone else except itself.

Of course, the criminal nature of the events triggered by the Western aggression and the unprecedented bloodshed caused during the hostilities should have brought the aforementioned gangsters in front of the International Court of Justice for crimes against the Mankind, but this would have been an extraordinary surprise and an indication that the international community started repenting for the crimes committed in the name of humanity over the past 70 years.

It would however be wrong to consider that, facing the foreign aggression, the Syrian regime was an angelic institution. Syria may have been a dictatorship before and after the rise of Assad family in power, but this is an understatement. The Baath regime and the underlying ideology constituted a terrible deformation of Syria’s national identity, cultural integrity, and historical continuity. The ideological system that the Assad family has served and is still serving is not an internal theoretical product; it is an alien, colonial fabrication geared only to engulf its victims into an impasse that can only lead to developments such as those we already attested in Syria and in Iraq, in Libya and in Yemen, in Tunisia and in Sudan, in Lebanon and in Algeria, and like what we will soon observe in Egypt.

What Saddam Hussein in Iraq and Hafez al-Assad in Syria failed to detect is that the ideology they evoked was fabricated (by means of intermediaries like Michel Aflaq, a Christian Aramaean from Syria who studied in France) by their enemies in order to engulf all those who would accept and embrace it in a swamp of passivity and self-destruction. These clueless and dull leaders failed to understand the top equation in politics:

Passivity + Time = Destruction

The worst consequence of the widespread ideology of Baathism is that it prevented a proper nation-building effort to take place, and this happened because the governments and the peoples of Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine and Jordan wrongly accepted that they are ‘Arabs’. Their false conviction is not exclusively due to Baathism; it would be wrong to assume this. In fact, since Day 1 after Napoleon disembarked in Egypt, all representatives of the colonial powers (France, England and America) promoted and imposed false theories, fake concepts, wrong data, and misleading directives that all had one common denominator, i.e. the assumption that the indigenous nations of all these Ottoman provinces were Arab.

When a nation fails to establish its historically correct identity, reassess its National History and Cultural Integrity, and write it down and popularize it as at the level of education, journalism and publications, the country is run by a fake ‘civic nation’ with no identity, no integrity, and no future.  Nation-building effort means basically the reinstatement of a historical nation as an ‘ethnic nation’ with full access to its identity, historicity, personality and integrity.

To add perjury to infamy, the Western colonial Orientalists produced further fake ideological systems, notably the so-called Political Islam or Modern Islamism, which is not only a monstrous distortion of Islam itself but also an abrupt opposition to every notion of nation. By therefore promoting in parallel two opposite forces that destabilized the local societies, the Western colonial powers placed the puerile governments instituted in Syria, Iraq, etc. on zones of high seismic intensity that would assuredly lead to their destruction. As they did!

Syria is an Aramaean historical nation whereby the Muslims gradually abandoned Aramaic language for Arabic, as a consequence of their adhesion to Islam. This does not make them less Aramaeans in any sense. The Christians in Syria still speak Aramaic which is also the language of their holy scriptures. Apart from the Kurmanji (falsely named ‘Kurdish’) minority and some other minor ethnic groups (notably the Turkmens, the Circassians, the Armenians, etc.), all Syrians, Muslims or Christians, are Aramaeans.

This reality is unsurpassable.

If the Syrian government has the intention to uproot the long standing threat against its existence and set up the basis of a national renaissance, the first measures to take are not military of nature. The country must

1- abolish the fake, disreputable and self-catastrophic name of Arab Republic

2- reflect its identity in its name

3- be named Aram Nahrain (Aram – Mesopotamia, as it occupies part of the land between the two rivers)

4- declare Aramaic only as its official language – with Arabic being the religious language for Muslims

5- launch a new educational system with Aramaic as the main language & organize seminars for all generations of Syrians to learn Aramaic

6- translate the Quran to Aramaic for later use by the country’s Muslims (as Islam’s holy book is translated to Turkish in Turkey, Farsi in Iran, Azeri in Azerbaijan, Urdu in Pakistan, Af Somali in Somalia, and so on), and

7- rewrite Syria’s National History in a way promoting Aramaean National Identity and Historical Continuity, duly popularize it, help all Syrians reassess themselves culturally and politically, and thus eliminate all the Arab trash

If another country cares about Syria’s future and the well-being of the Aramaean Syrian Nation, that country should help Damascus carry out a magnificent project of national re-affirmation.

The US and its European allies are the last countries in the world that would care to help a third nation; their vicious and inhuman attitudes have been demonstrated in many cases from Afghanistan to Iraq to Somalia.

Similarly, the sectarian regimes of Saudi Arabia and Jordan cannot help first because these countries are already fake, technical entities and second because their regimes consist of the world’s most villainous gangsters, and of Western puppets.

Iran may have helped Syria militarily and the Iranian help was effective against the Syrian renegades and traitors who fought against their country for just some thousands of dollars, but all this happened at a very high price, namely the promotion of forms of Islamism that prevail already in Iran, thus making the country of the Ayatullahs another type of colonial byproduct made in the Freemasonic ateliers of the West. Iran cannot help Syria stop being a colonial byproduct.

Russia may have helped Syria militarily and diplomatically and the Russian help was effective against Europe and America, particularly within the context of the UN Security Council, but the Russian diplomatic support is unable to help Damascus reconstruct (or rather construct from scratch, because the task had never been undertaken before 2011) its national identity, cultural integrity, and historical continuity. This is due to the very mistaken perception of Syria, of the Arabic-speaking peoples, of the so-called Middle East, and of the Orient in its entirety that the Russian academics, intellectuals, diplomats, strategists, and rulers have shaped, because they were systematically misled by the French and English Orientalists. Russia has a very wrong perception of the historical realities of the wider region, and this happens despite the undisputed fact that all major data, points, issues and details are accurately known to them. Several years ago, I published a long article only to introduce the problematic issue; the title was ‘Why Russia always failed in the Middle East’ (www.afroarticles.com/article-dashboard/Article/Why-Russia-always-failed-in-the-Middle-East/72601). The article was translated to Russian by INOSMI, an outlet of the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications of Russia (http://inosmi.ru/world/20080203/239339.html?id= / Почему Россия всегда терпела неудачи на Ближнем Востоке). The epicenter of the article, and respectively of the misplaced Russian academic and diplomatic approach to, and perception of, the Orient, is the thoughtless acceptance of the Arab Nation hoax as truth.

Turkey could have helped Syria; Turkey can help Syria; and Turkey should help Syria. In fact, Syria is an immorally, illegally and criminally detached province of the Ottoman Empire that the Western colonial powers ostensibly called ‘Turkey’ – which gives de facto right to any Turkish government to annex and re-incorporate its former provinces.

The first problem is that Turkey did not help Syria, because Turkey itself has become since 2002 a target for colonization by the Freemasonic-Zionist regimes of Paris, London and Washington D.C. Turkey’s colonization did not take the form of either military occupation (as in the cases of Egypt-1798, Algeria-1830, Palestine-1917, etc.) or the recently launched ‘Arab Spring’ (as in the cases of Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen and Syria since 2011). Turkey’s colonization took a very sophisticated form that involved

a. intimidation carried out by the US, UK, French, EU, and NATO leaders against Turkey’s top military in order to disallow them from carrying out a military coup against a Turkish Islamist government that has repeatedly and systematically since 2002 acted against the principles of Kemal Ataturk’s laic state that gathers overwhelming support among the citizens of the viciously targeted country

b. promotion of a fake Islamist party under a new vulgar, villainous and demagogic elite, after the marginalization of the former prime minister Necmettin Erbakan, who was known for his pro-German feelings and his rejection of the French-English-American evilness

c. vast Freemasonic-Zionist infiltration in Turkey, which was accepted by the fake Islamist government, because it functioned as both, gradual consolidation of the fake Islamists in the government and progressive disablement of the military establishment

d. full re-adjustment of Turkey’s society, administration, diplomacy, and policy to the post-colonial norms and standards imposed on the petty states of Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Algeria, etc. after the physical departure of the colonial administrations and the subsequent beginning of the fictional independence of those trashy realms, and

e. full utilization and instrumentalization of disoriented, besotted and demented Turkey’s Islamist government as per the needs of the Freemasonic – Zionist scheme – as fully attested since 2002 in many cases, notably Turkey’s Caucasus policy and Turkey’s favorable stand toward the vicious ‘Arab Spring’ phenomenon.

The second problem is that Turkey does not help Syria, because of the existence in Ankara of the dissonant, anti-republican, anti-laic, anti-democratic Islamist government. Yet, the type of help needed for Syria (as per the above suggestions 1 to 6) reflects exactly what policies Mustafa Kemal Pasha implemented in Turkey before three century quarters (1923-1938). In fact, events like the demand of the vilayet of Mosul (1923, known as Mosul Question) and the annexation of Hatay (1938-1939) demonstrate that Kemal Ataturk clearly viewed the territories of Syria, Lebanon and Iraq as genuine and rightful parts of his state. Had he have a chance to avoid major war, he would annexed these fake countries and former provinces to implement there the same policies as those implemented in Turkey. For those historical lands of the Aramaeans, annexation to Kemal Ataturk’s Turkey would normally mean Aramaean Identity reaffirmation and elimination of the colonial Arab trash.

Ataturk’s rejection by the self-disastrous Islamist administrations of Turkey takes therefore a very troublesome form in the case of Ankara’s policy toward Damascus.

Implementing anti-Ataturk policies and practices in Turkey, Erdogan destroys Turkey.

Implementing anti-Ataturk policies and practices in Syria, Erdogan destroys Syria.

It all has to do with the ineptitude, the incompetence, the deficiency, the meagerness, and the delusion of the Political Islam or Modern Islamism in general. Turkey’s military have still the chance to overthrow the worthless and disastrous administration, irrespective of what the monstrously anti-Turkish English, French and American diplomats, military and statesmen may say. This would be the best political option for both, Turkey and Syria.

The third problem is that, if the Turkish military do not overthrow Erdogan and redefine Ankara’s policy toward Damascus and with the aforementioned as basic guidelines, not only Syria but also Turkey will collapse. It will be too late for the Turkish people and patriots then to lynch the idiotic Islamists of the AKP administrations and to throw in the streets of Ankara the dead bodies of the top Turkish military who – corrupt and bribed by the NATO Freemasonic headquarters – advise for cooperation and agreement with Turkey’s worst enemies, namely Paris, London, Brussels and Washington D.C.

A quite interesting article was published few days ago in the Globalist as a plead for al-Assad’s Syria (The Inevitable Reemergence of Assad as a U.S. Ally) by Behzad Yaghmaian, an Iranian – American professor; it has a certain value and realism as it goes against the tide, refuting the Freemasonic – Zionist vilification of Bashar al-Assad and his beleaguered country. However, this approach stays quite superficial, and if everything happens as per the wishes of the article’s author that I also share to some extent, Syria will merely be left with all the problems that this technical entity without national identity and cultural integrity had in 2010 or in 1970 (rise of Hafez al-Assad though a coup known as Corrective Movement), in 1966 (Salah Jadid’s coup), in 1963 (rise of Baath party through a coup known as 8 March revolution), in 1961 (coup, separation and independence of Syria from the United Arab Republic – UAR, the most idiotic post-colonial attempt in the world), in 1958 (union with Egypt into UAR), in 1954 (coup against Adib al-Shishakli), in 1949 (three successive coups during one year, successively undertaken by Hussni al-Zaim, Sami al-Hinnawi, and Adib al-Shishakli) and in 1946 (fake independence from France).

I herewith republish the integral text of Prof. Yaghmaian’s article.

The Inevitable Reemergence of Assad as a U.S. Ally

The only option for the United States to defeat the Islamic State and end the refugee crisis.

By Behzad Yaghmaian, October 4, 2014

The Syrian refugee crisis is now the worst humanitarian crisis after the Rwandan genocide back in 1994. The situation demands an immediate response by the wealthier nations of the world, as well as a workable and lasting solution to the civil war in Syria.

A reassessment of the strategy in the current campaign against the Islamic State is central to stabilizing Syria and solving the refugee crisis. In its current formation, the U.S.-led coalition against the Islamic State is composed of forces that lack the willingness or the capability to shoulder the task.

As a short-term solution, the UN has called for the acceptance of 100,000 vulnerable refugees by other countries. The EU and other rich states have shown little interest.

In the long term, however, any solution to the refugee crisis rests on lasting political stability in Syria. Defeating the Islamic State and other ultra-violent groups is pivotal to this objective.

Millions of Syrians left their homes to escape the indiscriminate bombing and the targeting of civilians by the Assad regime.

The refugee crisis takes on new dimensions

Most of the refugees, as anybody walking the streets of Istanbul these days can see, are women and children. They beg for money, any money, when cars are stopped in traffic at red lights. And they sit diminutively on Istanbul’s sidewalks, playing away forlornly on a little flute, hoping to find the occasional generosity of a passer-by.

However, the refugee crisis entered a new turning point with the fast territorial victories of the Islamic State. The Islamic State’s random violence, mass killing of innocent people and kidnapping and rape of young girls have been the main reasons for the recent exodus of Syrians.

Stopping further displacement of Syrians and reversing the tide of the refugee movement requires the removal of the Islamic State from captured territories in Syria and Iraq.

The current U.S.-led coalition against the Islamic State is unlikely to achieve this. Its failure will force the displacement of the Kurds and many more who withstood the violence of Assad’s regime and did not leave their homes.

The situation demands boldness and clear-headedness in making the right choices.

A coalition that includes forces truly opposed to the Islamic State is needed to achieve victory against the group. The moderate anti-Assad forces that President Obama called to arm and train have been destroyed or rendered inconsequential by the regime and the radical opposition groups.

Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the other regional Arab states in the coalition remain committed to using radical Muslim groups in Syria and Iraq in their proxy war with Iran. Their participation in the coalition against the Islamic State is at best cynical.

The Assad government – the best path to success

As difficult as this is to accept, the Assad government, the original cause of the refugee crisis, may be among the only hopes for turning the tide. Assad has every reason to defeat the Islamic State at this point. Success in fighting against the Islamic State hinges upon a tacit or active coordination of activities with Assad and his supporters, including Iran.

Insisting on the removal of Assad from power weakens the possibility of containing or defeating the Islamic State, stabilizing Syria and helping a peaceful and voluntary repatriation of the Syrian refugees to their homes.

Assad needs to be guaranteed a place in the future government of Syria after the defeat of the Islamic State and other radical Muslim groups. This seems to be the only road to success.

The world faced similar choices in the past. Right decisions were made in some cases. The alliance between the Soviet Union and its ideological enemies, the United States, Great Britain and France, proved pivotal in defeating fascism in WWII.

No one had any illusion about Stalin’s brutality at home. It took a long time for the Americans to accept Stalin’s call for cooperation against Hitler. In the end, the Americans and others accepted the offer, working with one ideological enemy, to defeat an immediate and devastating threat to the stability of the world.

We are facing a similar situation today. A Syria with Assad is far preferable to a prolonged civil war, or a country carved up and ruled by the Islamic State. This is true for the Syrian refugees and the rest of us elsewhere in the world.
