Mit ‘Near East conflict’ getaggte Beiträge

Not only after I´ve been reading this article – – but since a longer time I´m asking myself whether Obama is thinking at all of a bloody parallel to the Zionist experiment to be found in History? Does he ever think of the failure of the “Back to Africa” movement and the American Colonization Society, partly inspired by white Abolitionists and partly by African Americans founded on the refusal of Mainstream Society in the US (and GB) to really accept people of African descent in their societies which led to the dreadful Liberia and Sierra Leone experience? In case of Liberia and Sierra Leone it was the neglect of locality and African diversity, in the case of Israel it was the neglect of 2000 years. But in the case of Israel the self restriction to the borders of 1967 might have done “the trick” to save the experiment, whereas the greed to “get it all” might spoil everything in course of history. I tend to the word: listen Israel, learn from the German historical experience with Hubris! I have the fear that not only Israel´s birth is the outcome of Germany´s monumental crimes, but Israel might also be the socio-psychological clone of Germany! Great Albert Einstein and Hanna Arendt together with a number of other progressive people of Jewish descent were clear enough to see that danger on the example of Menachem Begin and brave enough to express that in their famous letter to NYT (1). If you read a collection of Zionist quotations the fear is growing that there is an ideological tide swelling in Israel which bears elements characteristic for Fascism (2). Instead of warning that country and reminding it of History, Obama is declaring unconditional eternal support.


By and large Obama´s administration is the expression of the “Soft Power” fraction of the US Power Elite (as Orwellian as the name is since also those chaps are not shy to strangulate whole economies), but it seems that the Neocon fraction is so much under pressure that they do everything to pass that pressure to Obama & administration:

It seems very obvious that Obama has no love for Israel´s Prime Minister Netanyahu who did all he could to support Romney but it appears also that Obama is stricken by the fear to become a second Kennedy (3)!

In Western countries this is the time of holidays and good wishes. It is the time of middle class luxuries and excessive spending for presents many times more than one can afford. Not to be misunderstood, also in the West more and more people don´t know how to make “ends meet”, but true hell is in the Southern Hemisphere! OK, in the richest country on Earth, the US, and with its “small brother”, the UK, there are extended “pockets” of poverty and hopelessness. But if you want to see hell, turn the view on Congo (1), on West Papua – the western part of New Guinea, occupied by Indonesia (2), on many other Sub Saharan African countries additionally to Congo (3), on the Occupied territories of the Palestinians (4), turn an eye on Libya (5) and on Syria (6)! But don´t forget, the “South” is creeping upwards, as you can see in Greece (7) and more and more in Spain (8).

“Green Zones” and “Red Zones”

Instead of harvesting the “peace dividend” announced after the end of the “Cold War” and promised in UN´s aims for the “Millenium” you see wars, poverty and hopelessness spreading, whereas profits are exploding. The profits again are nourishing “bubbles” which every now and then exploding don´t kill the rich but the poor and the middle class! High times for arms traders and companies busy in the “Security Sector”. Disasters are not getting societies closer together but are playing grounds for more profits, just as so well described in Naomi Klein´s brilliant book “The Shock Doctrine” ( Globally there is more and more division between the places where “you can live” and where you can only survive (if you´re lucky). And in many countries this principle is continued.

Masters of Disasters

But who is responsible for most of the mass tragedies to be found in this “Modern World”? Who bombs “for Democracy”, who´s sponsoring and creating “Terrorists” to be used as alibi for more bombings, who understands “National Security” as the sole right to be almighty over all other nations? They are to be found in the sole “Empire” left, in the US! It´s not even the president of that country, it´s the country´s Power Elite, deciding behind the curtain, at times even at war among themselves (9), but doing all without the slightest democratic legitimation. To be clear, there are also dictators independent from the West, who are anything else but respectable, but the decision who´s publicly ousted to be a “second Hitler” is always directed by those in the US who are playing with luck, health, fate and life of many, many millions of people. And they have one principle:


They have with their Western (and at times Southern) henchmen turned Decolonization into deprivation, they have turned Democratization into dictatorship of Capital, they have turned emancipation into more sexual exploitation. Whatever they touch with their hands doesn´t become gold but pure shit which they get paid for as if it would be gold! And whenever there is the slightest attempt to let a bit more freedom grow they will trample it under ground, just killing hope (!

But to the Westerners it must be said: true hell being on the Southern Hemisphere now should not befuddle you! It shows the picture of what is in preparation for the majority of you Westerners as well! Politicians are to the Power Elite their monkeys, experts are their cattle, highly skilled people are their rabbits, the majority of mankind is their vegetable and the “surplus people” whom they cannot utilize are their weeds. You better understand in time!

So to all individuals I wish a Healthy and Happy New Year, but in general my wish is:

Since decades the Near East conflict keeps the world breathless again and again. It does not only continue burning in the center of a region fought for because of its resources and about its formation following geopolitical ambitions, but plays a great part as a controversial topic and factor of confusion in the discourse for democratic and humanist aims. Many actors claim to aim at its solution. Since the late Seventies the Palestinian mainstream has basically agreed to the Two State solution. Never the less Western media portray the Palestinians as the true obstacle to it. Insiders in deed know that even Hamas would agree to such a solution, if the foundation would be the borders before 1967, notwithstanding some exchange of areas if fairly negotiated from both sides.

And Israel?

Leaving aside the notorious disregard for UN resolutions and International law in union with the US, many times it´s demanded from Israel to define its borders, especially in connection with Israel´s demand to acknowledge its “right to exist”. This demand has been fulfilled! But one wouldn´t find the place for the Palestinians even with a microscope, not even a “Vatican State”:
