I DID NOT USE THE WORDS SAUDI & ARABIA TOGETHER TO DESCRIBE ARABIA AS IN HISTORY THERE IS NEVER A MENTION OF ANY NATION CALLED SAUDI ARABIA.THINK OF THE ARROGANCE OF THE JEWISH RULERS OF ARABIA(THE HOUSE OF SAUD) TO TAKE THE SEAT OF ISLAM OR WHAT WAS THE SEAT OF ISLAM AND THEN NATION THAT AFRICAN NATION AFTER ITSELF.
YES I DID SAY AFRICAN NATION.THE WHOLE OF WHAT IS NOW CALLED THE MIDDLE EAST WAS ONCE A WELL ESTABLISHED PART OF AFRICA UNTIL THE BRITISH AND THE OTHER NEOCOLONIAL ANGLOS DIVIDED THE CONTINENT UP AND REDREW THE AFRICAN MAP.
THOSE JEWS INFILTRATED ARABIA THEN WITH EUROPEAN FINANCIAL SUPPORT AND BACKING TOOK WHAT WAS ONCE THE HOLY PLACE ON EARTH AND DEFILED IT.NOW YOU CAN SEE THEIR RACISM OUT IN THE OPEN .THEY HAVE BEEN HELPING THE JEWS OF ISRAEL UNDERMIND ISLAMIC UNITY THROUGHOUT AFRICA(THE SO-CALLED MIDDLE EAST).THEY HAVE BEEN COMMITTING WAR CRIMES ON THE BLACK YEMENIS USING PHOSPEROUS BOMBS INDISCRIMINANT AGAINST BLACK ELDERS,WOMEN,AND CHILDREN CLAIMING THAT THEY ARE FIGHTING TERRORISTS.SOUNDS FAMILIAR DOESN’T IT?
NOW THEY HAS DECLARED WAR ON YEMEN BY ISSUING A NAVAL BLOCKADE ON YEMEN DOCKS AND NAVAL FACILITIES.NO WONDER THE HOLY QU’RAN WARNS THE MOTHER CITY.;”
|Denying Responsibility for the Wars One Cheers OnThe NYT columnist who has supported 4 wars on Muslims in 6 years decries the Islamic disregard for human life.
By Glenn Greenwald
November 11, 2009 — “Salon” — David Brooks’ column today perfectly illustrates what lies at the core of our political discourse: namely, self-loving tribalistic blindness laced with a pathological refusal to accept responsibility for one’s actions. Brooks claims there is a unique evil that one finds in the “fringes of the Muslim world”:
But Brooks himself was a vehement, vicious advocate for the attack on Iraq, which caused this:
That’s at least 128,000 innocent human beings — at least — whose lives were eradicated by the war Brooks repeatedly cheered on. It also resulted in this: “More than 4 million Iraqis have now been displaced by violence in the country.” But Brooks accuses Islamic fanatics — but not himself — of “causing incredible amounts of suffering.”
Brooks also justified the Israeli attack on Gaza, including its worst excesses — a war that wiped out the lives of 1,400 Palestinians (including 252 children under the age of 16) and that entailed “the shooting of [Gazan] civilians with white flags, the firing of white phosphorus shells and charges that Israeli soldiers used Palestinian men as human shields,” all of which, according to a U.N. investigation, were “the result of deliberate guidance issued to soldiers.” He also cheered on the Israeli bombing campaign of Lebanon and derided those calling for a cease-fire, even as the war wiped out more than 1,000 Lebanese people, at least 300 of whom were women and children, during which “Israeli warplanes also targeted many moving vehicles that turned out to be carrying only civilians trying to flee the conflict.” And Brooks is now demanding escalation of the war in yet another Muslim country, this one in Afghanistan — making it the fourth separate war on Muslims he’s cheered on in the last six years alone.
So here’s a person who is constantly advocating and justifying the killing, bombing, and slaughtering of Muslims, including well over 100,000 innocent civilians. And yet today he writes a column saying: Look over there at those radical Muslims; can you believe how degraded and inhumane they are? In fact, he says, “they” — those Muslims over there — “don’t see others as fully human. They come to believe others can be blamelessly murdered and that, in fact, it is admirable to do so.” That’s from the same person who cheerleads for the endless deaths of Muslims and destruction of the Muslim world while thinking that it makes him strong, resolute, Churchillian, righteous and noble — exactly that which he accuses “fringe Muslims” of doing. And even as he blames the U.S. for “absolving” radical Muslims for the “evil” of their choices, Brooks will never make the connection between what he does and its results because he believes he is free from accountability and that his righteousness justifies the killings he desires — again, exactly that which he says today is the hallmark of Islamic monsters (“They come to believe others can be blamelessly murdered and that, in fact, it is admirable to do so”).
The tribalistic narcissism and depraved refusal to accept responsibility for the consequences of one’s actions on vivid display here is hardly unique to Brooks. The very same people who express such moral outrage and self-righteous horror over events like the Fort Hood shootings themselves have immense amounts of innocent human blood on their hands, but they simply avert their eyes from what they have caused or believe that they are too inherently Good to be responsible, let alone culpable, for what they unleash.
