Redemption: A Challenge

Posted on  by Nahida Exiled Palestinian
To expose the absurd and unrealistic nature of the “one-state with equal rights for Israelis and Palestinians”, and to extract one of the main perils it encapsulates, I would mention here mainly three facts.
These facts have the double merit of being crystal clear, and also of being based on fundamental pillars of civilization, i.e. time-tested. I would suggest that they become fundamental guidelines for any further proposition:
Firstly: To allow mass-murderers, land-thieves, ideological supremacists, destroyers of Cultural Heritage to keep the loot, is ethically unacceptable. Worse still, in our era of post-Nuremberg Principles of International Law, and post-Geneva Conventions, this would represent a perilous turn backwards of the wheel of history, by re-allowing and even justifying land acquisition by means of military conquest and terrorism, down to genocide and democide.
Secondly: To force or coerce victims of slow genocide, -ongoing since seven decades, to live with their rapists and murderers of their children, is ruthless, inhumane, and also an incentive for the perpetrators to perpetuate said crimes, even increase their insane cruelty.
Thirdly: to bring to the fore the notion of “equal rights” when the parties concerned are one of dispossessed victims, and the other one of serial killers and supremacists, it constitutes an oxymoron which itself is nothing else than sabotage of the very foundation of Justice.
To sabotage foundational elements of human cohabitation, is downright perilous for mankind, and yet this is what is promoted by people under the ominously fake pretext of “peace”!
A Peace that justifies past massacres and promotes future massacres, is not Peace.
Enough is enough !
Those guilty, -individually and collectively of perpetrating horrendous crimes and atrocities in Palestine and beyond for over seven decades,-without ever facing justice, and those internationally complicit by sustaining the aggressor and occupying entity “Israel”, must get accustomed to the oncoming tsunami of lawful calls for Justice. They must also be forewarned, that there is no escape route left. After all they had seven decades of opportunity to abandon their terror methods, during which their integration into the peaceful Palestinian culture, as Jews, would have still been possible.It must be reminded that before the Jewish-Zionist invasions, Muslim majority and Christian and Jewish minorities lived harmoniously together; they all were Palestinians, irrespective of religion.
Now, having failed in every sense, for the bloodthirsty invaders and their even worse offspring, Justice is at the corner.
After over seventy years of Jewish-Zionist terrorism, of bloody history, of deception, lies, land robbery, ethnic cleansing, and slow genocide, we now observe offspring of the initial terrorists, trying to sweet talk Palestinians, with the obvious intention to facilitate a final take-over of the very few areas of Palestine yet not conquered entirely, albeit occupied. Their method of deception is a rather thin varnish of “Peace” and “humanism”, under which the same supremacist ideology lingers, with the same lust after power like flies over red meat. Anyone who deals with that surreptitious re-branding long enough, and with a modicum of sane skepticism, will rapidly discover that their nebulous “one state” never was intentioned as, and never will be, a realistic solution.
The list of reasons, one more practical and evident than the next one, as to why the small and historically Arab country Palestine, can not accommodate such masses of rabid foreigners, is too long to enumerate here in full. Let’s just keep in mind that millions upon millions of Palestinians living in forced exile around the world since over 5 decades (since 1967), respectively over 7 decades (since 1948 and before), are for most of them longing to return to their home, the home of their ancestors since centuries and millennia, and commence to heal the abominable wounds to the land the rabid Jewish-Zionists inflicted to this historic World Heritage.
It is crucial that our friends and supporters reflect upon the meaning of JUSTICE in the context of a history saturated with War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity.
Justice is NOT revenge.
Justice is an imperative step to stop further crimes, assorted with unconditional restitution, reparation and compensation to be payed by the perpetrators and their accomplices, to the victims and their descendants.
As mentioned before, these inherently violent and arguably bloodthirsty criminals and vicious land grabbers, have had a full century (since the beginning of the first Jewish-Zionist invasion) to learn to coexist peacefully. Instead, they have only learned how to genocide, culturecide, democide, torture, use WMD, terrorize, destroy biblical archeological heritage, and on and on…
Enough is enough !
Participating in absolving individuals guilty of Crimes Against Humanity and other ongoing crimes since over seven decades, and whitewashing these Crimes, by simply claiming “Israel” is a mere apartheid which can be “fixed” with some pressure and with “Israel” annexing the West Bank and Gaza, and by granting Palestinians “Israeli” citizenship to “upgrade” their status from “occupied” to “slaves” in their own Homeland, and demanding nothing but marginal improvement of the treatment of Palestinians, is a betrayal to all things human and moral.
“Israelis” live on stolen Palestinian lands, in homes stolen from Palestinians, in architecturally abominable settlements which are destroying the biblical landscape Palestinians had shaped since millennia. It was called the “Holy Land” before the invasion of hordes of Jewish-Zionist terrorists, most of them Ashkenazic Jews with strictly no historic link, and NO common culture with Palestine and the Middle East. These Jewish-Zionist barbarians have uprooted millions of centuries-old olive trees, destroyed hundreds (over 90%) of biblical villages, and are selling agricultural and industrial products grown and produced on stolen land. Everyday, more hundreds of “dunums” of Palestinian land are “confiscated” or simply taken over at gunpoint, by Jewish “Israeli” terrorists, from Palestinian owners.
We should ask ourselves why is it, that so many deem it difficult to comprehend that all stolen land, all stolen property, all usurped goods and profits, must be returned to its rightful owners, let alone reparation and compensation paid whenever restitution is not possible any more, and for decades of suffering and deprivation endured by the legitimate owners of property and rights?
Where is the logic, when Jews on one hand request to this day restitution of property confiscated (and sometimes sold) during the Nazi regime, and yet they turn around and pretend that restitution of what they took from others is “not realistic”, and even “anti-Semitic”!
What is it that blinds public opinion? I would opine that main cause of this manipulation of public opinion, is due to the control of mass-medias and entertainment, as well as the corruption of polity and politicians, by Jewish-Zionist networks of influence, systematically depriving the public of the key information necessary to make informed democratic decisions. Together with me, more and more analysts come to the same conclusion. Mass medias and politicians have lost the trust of the public, hence truth begins to impose itself.
As far as the vast majority of Palestinians are concerned, our aim is to re-create a racism-free, supremacy-free, exploitation-free Holy Land.  Meaning, our aim is the FULL LIBERATION of Palestine.
We should hope that one day soon, racist and supremacists would take their racism, immorality, inhumanity and hate away from the land they have wounded and defiled for that long. We also suggest that Jewish supporters who hope to regain some degree of dignity and credibility, better soon than late, take their responsibility by helping us achieve our highly moral goal. It would be time for them to relinquish, once and for all, any further attempt of legitimisation and the finalisation of the Zionist project. It would also be time to stop protecting “Israel’s” interest by defending Jewish “Israelis” self-claimed “right” to remain in Palestine and to keep the loot.
Still, myriads of Jewish Funds and Foundations raise and collect enormous sums, in the billions, from international Jewish communities, to finance either overtly or covertly the destruction of Palestine, the genocide, the destruction of cultural heritage, imprisonment and torture of children, etc, etc. The Jewish National Fund for example is one of these accomplices instrumental in the destruction of Biblical Palestinian villages and constructing “Israeli-only” colonies, and commission of other crimes, since more than a century.
Wouldn’t it be time for Jews around the planet, to begin to reverse the steam?
Wouldn’t it be time for Jews around the planet, to begin to restore a modicum of respectability, instead of being its own nemesis?
Wouldn’t it be time for Jews around the planet to begin to participate in restorative causes, rather then unwittingly cover up crimes? (it is preferable to be a Moser, than abettor, accomplice or accessory of mass-murder)
27 million- Fundraising by Friends of IDF
For these reasons, we hereby challenge specifically Jewish organizations and individuals, to create a new Jewish fund, in an effort to begin the lengthy and inescapable Restitution, Reparation and Compensation process, that will inevitably ensue the 7 decades long and ongoing Jewish Crimes against the land of Palestine and its indigenous people.
We suggest the fund being raised and collected exclusively from Jewish donors, being unambiguously destined and allocated solely toward Restitution, Reparation and Compensation , and being associated with agreement of every donor, to support the Full and Unconditional LiberationRestitution, Reparation and Compensation for the Palestinians.
Our proposal means peace in the long term, with down the road a sort of restoration of the status-pro-ante, ie. Peaceful cohabitation between Palestinian Muslims, Christians and Jews, providing these citizens of Palestine respect Palestinian Law, do not engage in terrorism or treasonous activities, and for what concern those ex-Israelis who wish to remain in Palestine, that they could demonstrate to a special commission, their innocence from any oppressive or repressive or murderous activity by the then defunct “Israel”.
Our proposal represents a strict minimum our Jewish supporters should engage into because the crimes are committed in their names, by the people they are linked to as Jews. If Jewish self-claimed supporters of Palestine truly object to such crimes, then they have no better option, than to launch a campaign similar, -but radically opposed to the Jewish National Fund type.
Just buying a few homes here and there, or just another Jewish self-promotional white-wash agency, altogether called “support”, won’t be enough. What we need to see are Jewish supporters proving through practical and meaningful acts that they are willing to put their weight against what is still a majority of Zionist Jews, and develop a segment influential enough amongst their Jewish communities, to make significant paradigm shifts, and to raise the billions necessary to at first buy back Palestinian property, and secondly transfer this to the rightful Palestinian owners.
Instead of fundraising for Jewish “israeli” groups such as IHCAD, Windows for Peace, B’Tselem, Machsomwatch.. etc, which are generally anti-zionist only at the surface, become a “future leader” of the already inevitable reversed flow, that will restore Justice and bring Peace, and see the multitude of Palestinians in forced exile, back to their ancestral Homeland, unifying with their Palestinian compatriots who survived, heroically, 7 decades of terrorism.
Our challenge to world Jewry is to, simply: COUNTER BALANCE Rothschild.
Are they up for the challenge?

Person of the Year 2013: Palestinian Hunger Striker Samer al-Issawi

Published Tuesday, December 31, 2013
One can only imagine the looks on the faces of Israeli settlers living in Masharef Mountain, near the Hebrew University that overlooks Issawiya, as they watched the celebrations welcoming back Palestinian prisoner Samer al-Issawi.

Issawi returned victorious to his village despite Israel’s desperate attempts to ban celebrations. The occupation forces delayed his release for about 10 hours last Monday, December 23, and erected military checkpoints near the village, but young men and Palestinian mothers insisted on welcoming their hero

Following his nine-month hunger strike amid the “battle of the empty stomachs,” Issawi was released along with 1,026 other Palestinians in an exchange for the return of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
He wished to remain loyal to those who lost their lives while planning and conducting the Shalit kidnapping, and didn’t want the Israelis to arrest the liberated prisoners all over again, forcing them to serve the rest of their sentences.
From the first intifada until the mid-1990s, Issawi, born 1979, resisted Israeli occupation by setting settler cars of fire and throwing Molotov cocktails. He told Al-Akhbar that he was careful not to be arrested because he wanted to support his family, since his four brothers – Raafat, Medhat, Firas, and Fadi – were held by the Israelis. But all that changed when his brother Fadi was killed in clashes that erupted in Issawiya, following the Hebron massacre in 1994.
The day Samer saw his brother in a pool of his own blood was the last straw.
Issawi was first arrested in 1998 and sentenced to a year and a half in prison for throwing a Molotov cocktail. He was later sentenced to six months in jail for beating up an Israeli soldier, then he was imprisoned again in 2000 for 15 days at the beginning of al-Aqsa intifada. He was later arrested for six months without charges.
“Israeli military attacks escalated during the second Intifada, and we began to hear about airstrikes on Gaza,” said Issawi, revealing that on the first day of his release he joined the ranks of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine. He formed a five-member cell with friends and conducted 11 shooting operations targeting Israeli vehicles in the Ma’ale Adumim settlement, seven kilometers east of Jerusalem.
These shootings caused material damages and injured one Israeli officer. Once Issawi’s role was revealed, the Israelis hunted him down for a whole year and finally arrested him during the 2002 Operation Defensive Shield in Ramallah.
Issawi refused to appear before the Beit Eil military court and rejected the presence of an attorney because he didn’t acknowledge the legitimacy of the court. He told the judges that it was more of a traveling circus that the Israelis brought along to every territory they occupied.
Issawi was sentenced to 30 years in jail. He wasn’t surprised. Usually sentences in such cases are life in prison, even though no injuries were caused.
He said he was confident he wouldn’t serve his entire sentence, and told the judge, “I will be out before 30 years.” Ten years later, Issawi was released within the “Loyalty to the Free Men” prisoners’ deal.
Issawi as Art
Occupation forces arrested Issawi again on 7 July 2012. His interrogation continued for 30 days, following which he was accused of planning to kidnap Israeli soldiers. Meanwhile, the head of Israeli intelligence in the West Bank threatened to send him back to jail to serve the remaining 20 years of his sentence.
Issawi realized that he was in a serious situation. Hence, on July 27, he started returning two of his meals and settling for a simple one of two slices of bread and a spoonful of labneh and jam.
He maintained this diet for 19 days and was transferred to Nafha Prison. On August 24, he started training his body for an open hunger strike. He wrote a letter to prison services and informed them about his escalation. Back then, he settled for a glass of juice or milk or soup until he cut off food completely and started his open hunger strike on September 14, which also included a strike on water from time to time.
Finally, Issawi reached an agreement with the Israelis last April allowing him to return home to Jerusalem within eight months.
Israelis resorted to different tactics to try and exhaust Issawi into giving up his hunger strike. They sent him on prisoners’ buses to courts and moved him from prison to prison, forcing him to wait for hours for his jailers. They demolished his brother Medhat’s house and attacked him and his family in court despite his deteriorating health.
Samer dropped to 99 pounds and suffered attendant health risks. “When I slept on my right side, I felt numb, and the same with my left side. I also couldn’t sleep on my chest because I had a broken bone,” he said.
With His Family
“Every time I heard about Palestinians and freedom-loving people around the world joining this this battle, I forgot my own pain, mainly after the martyrdom of Mahmoud al-Titi and Mohammed Asfour. There was nothing I could offer them, just insisting on the goals that we put together before the hunger strike. I was also moved by young men protesting for the first time in front of Jerusalem Magistrates Court,” he said.
Issawi said, “The anger I saw in the eyes of the jailers after seven months of the hunger strike proved to me that we succeeded in raising the voices of prisoners and revealing Israeli violations of the prisoner swap deal, while preserving Palestinians dignity. All the goals were accomplished and the only thing left was me going back home.”
On the Palestinian official position, Samer said, “Let’s be honest, all of us Palestinians, from the president to common citizens, can’t even move from one region to the other without Israeli authorization. We don’t count on the official position as much as we count on the will of the people to exercise pressure to force politicians to take more serious steps. A Palestinian negotiator can sign a deal, but it would not be applicable on the ground without popular support.”

It is true that communism and socialism were used extensively by Israelis because it gave them -much more than Zionism-the international cover under which they could work and promote the interests of their so called Jewish state, and reach remote places- in Africa and Asia – that they could not otherwise reach.
These Israeli or pro Israel communists and socialists that work for the promotion of the Israeli state and are unionists or activists are as dangerous as their liberal pars if not more .They have infiltrated Liberation movements in Africa -to a great extent- seeking to control them, drawing the parallel between what they call Jewish struggle for existence and the Black African struggle for liberation , and claiming to be on the side of the oppressed while catering and belonging to the most oppressive state that ever existed . They pretended to fight for human rights while abusing Palestinians , not to forget that the previous USSR was among the first to recognize the usurping state of Israel and to send hundreds of thousands of Jews to populate it and contribute greatly to its growth and development. Israel would not have been what it is without those .
The Soviets had no problem in recognizing and catering to a so called religious colonialist state that was against everything they claimed to be and also, other leftist parties- communist and socialist- will not refrain from offering to Israelis-who lived on usurped land – to engage in class and anti colonial struggle of which they were an intrinsic part . But this does not mean that Marxism is the cradle of Zionism as has been suggested .
The cradle of Zionism lies somewhere else and the particular thing about Zionism as that it could use both spirituality and materialism, religion and secularism in a strange combination that is rarely seen and which shows that Zionism is neither religious nor secular nor material but belongs to something else to a different realm made of pure violation and usurp.

The Bastards of Great Israel

أيتام اسرائيل الكبرى

كيان مصطنع تم تركيبه بقرار , ولحسابات في جزء منها غامض اختير لهذا المشروع أقدس أرض وفوق جماجم سكانه الاصليين , أسس بمتلازمتين احداهما خرافة يتم الاستثمار فيها وتقول بفكرة التفوق على أساس الدين ,فهم شعب الله المختار وبقية الشعوي تركة الله لهم . والأخرى هي اللعب على الغرائز لينتهي اللعب الى القتل .بريطانيا أسست المشروع قبل أن تقرر بيعه في صفقة رابحة الى أميركا …حقيقة انا لا أتحدث عن اسرائيل ,
انما اتحدث عن الكيان السعودي في ارض الحجاز,الحقيقة التي حان الوقت لقولها
مفاتيح الارض السبعة ..
في العلوم الروحانية الجسم المادي هو اسقاط لجسم نوراني اكثر تعقيدا ولديه من امكانية اللامتناهي .على هذا الجسم النوراني تتوضع نقاط تتركز فيها الطاقة وتبدو كدوامة تدور عكس عقاب الساعة عندما يلزمها الحصول على طاقة بعدها الكوني . الارض ايضا جسد مادي له تماما تركيبة جسدك, اذا يلزمه أيضا مراكز طاقية لتعويض الفاقد من الطاقة الحيوية , لكن أين تقع هذه المراكز ؟
للجسد البشري سبع تشاكرات (مراكز طاقة ) وللارض ايضا نفس العدد .الحقيقة التي سوف تقرأوها بعد قليل تنشر للمرة الاولى في تاريخ البشرية ولم يتم تدالها مع العامة من قبل مطلقا, لكننا دخلنا الآن في عصر جديد ( البداية الفعلية للعصر الجديد 2017) مواتي جدا لنتشارك هذه العلوم .
مقامات الطاقة في الارض تتوضع في : مكة, القدس, جبل قاسيون في الشام , اليمن . النجف . القطبين المغناطيسيين للارض . وتماما كما تشاكرات الجسد, الحج الى كل من هذه الاماكن على حدا يكسبك قدرة مختلفة .
نحو فهم جديد لما يدور حولنا…
في القتال الطاقي يبدأ المهاجم باستهداف مراكز طاقة خصمه مما يؤدي الى تعطيل اعضاء جسده المرتبطة بهذه المراكز ,هذا بالضبط مايحدث على الارض .
والآن لنلقي نظرة على العمل المتقن لاعدائنا..
عند أول فرصة تم زرع الكيانين الغريبين في القدس ومكة لكن اللافت أن كلاهما أول عمل قاما به ولم يكد أحدهما يلتقط انفاسه بعد هو الزحف الى الشام !! هل هو صدفة من الخطأ البناء عليها؟!
لنبدأ بأعمال الشرير في القدس ومكة …
سابدأ بتنويه كبير يقلب مفاهيما قديمة لديكم عمرها الألاف من السنين:
هل حقا أهمية هيكل سليمان لايتعدى كونه قضية رمزية وبشارة لوعد؟! الاجابة بجزء مهم منها تجدونها في القران الكريم , هل حقا ارادت بلقيس برفع الثوب عن ساقيها عندما دخلت الهيكل اغواء سيدنا سليمان؟ هل يتناسب وقدر القران الكريم ذكر حادثة عمرها الألاف فقط لفنهم منها ان فتاة كشفت عن ساقيها لرجل ؟! احد علماء المصريات لفته الترديد الدائم لكلمة سحر في الكتابات الهيروغليفية , تأمل مليا في عقد لؤلؤ لملكة فرعونية ثقبت حباته بالليزر (حقيقة اخرى تم وضعها في صندوق رمي في دهليز) وتساءل اي سحر يقودنا الى معارف الليزر ؟! هنا توصل الى كلمته الشهيرة ” لتفهموا سر الحضارة الفرعونية فقط استبدلوا كلمة سحر بكلمة تكنولوجيا”
هذا بالضبط ماعليكم القيام به عندما يدور الحديث عن هيكل سليمان, هذا الهيكل –كصندوق طالوت- به تكنولوجيا وعلوم من يملكها يملك مفاتيح ابواب الابعاد الكونية .أمر آخر عليكم القيام به وحالا, لم نأخذ من التاريخ الا الكذب ولقد تعامل معنا باحتقار واستخفاف! توقفوا حالاا عن النظر الى أنبياء الله على أنهم فقط حالة سامية تعتليهم الدهشة كما نفعل نحن في كل مرة يجري الله على ايديهم كرامة. انتبهوا الى ما سأقوله “هم حالة سامية وحالة علمية أيضا “من منكم توقف عند قصة النبي موسى مع الخضر ,الم تلاحظوا ان العلاقة كانت بين تلميذ مهذب أراد علما لم يستحقه بعد من معلم قدير ! من أشار على موسى بالذهاب الى المعلم الجليل الخضر ولما صام اربعين يوما قبل الوصول اليه ؟هذا مافعله ايضا المسيح قبل ان يتلقى علما آخر من الله , وأيضا أربعين يوما قضاها الرسول محمد قبل نزول الوحي ,ماهي المآرب الأخرى التي يستعمل فيها النبي موسى عصاه؟ ماهو العلم الذي به طوى الرسول محمد الارض وشق القمر ؟
اذا تم الحفر تحت المسجد الاقصى بحثا عن غرفة معارف النبي سليمان وفقط شعرة واحد تبقي المسجد الاقصى مستقرا وقرار قطعها ينتظر ان ينجز الساسة عملا ما لا أكثر .
في علوم الفانك شوي طبيعة المواد المستعملة في أثاث المكان وطريقة ترتيبها تؤثر بشكل حاسم على طاقة المكان وجريانها .وبناءا على هذا العلم وليس كيفما اتفق بدأوا بتهويد المدينة القديمة وادخال عناصر بناء ليست من تربتها.
مكة المكرمة …
توقفوا عند التطابق قليلا. أيضا تم تهويد مدينة رسول الله وبحرية أكبر فالظرف السياسي لطالما كان مشكلة كبيرة تعيق عمل الصهاينة في القدس , فلم يتركوا مسجدا صلى فيه الرسول وأصحابه ولا دربا ولا بستانا ووصل بهم الأمر الى محاولة تدمير مكتبة الرسول وقبره لكن يومها كاد الشعب أن يعلن قيامه فتراجعوا الى الوراء..قليلا.والاكثر حقارة وخسة (لايقل صمت المسلمين كرد فعل خسة ودناءة عن الفعل ذاته)هو ردم منزل سيدتنا خديجة وبه محراب للرسول وموضع للوحي والبيت الذي ولدت فيه سيدتنا فاطمة عليهم السلام وبناء حمامات عامة فوقه!! والتساؤل الطبيعي, لما اختار آل سعود الحمامات لبنائها فوق بيت النبوة ولم يختاروا روضة أطفال مثلا؟!
قبل عهد آل سعود كان بامكانك أن تمشي على الدرب الذي مشى عليه رسول الله وان تأكل تمرا من الشجرة التي أكل منها وأن تشرب من نفس النبع وكلها مشفرة من طاقته الشافية النقية ( كقميص النبي يوسف الذي أصبحت له قوة شفائية لأن ذبذبات هالة النبي يوسف الرحمانية شفرة ذرات القميص) .
الكعبة …

تنويه آخر, هو تهجم آخر على التاريخ وعلم لعلك تصل اليه للمرة الأولى ..
التاريخ مرتزق مخادع مزاجي, هكذا قضى معظم وقته .يصور لنا القدماء حالة سخيفة غبية تعبد حجر! لكن هل اعجاز حضارة المايا يتناسب مع هذا التوصيف؟ وهل اعجاز بناء الاهرامات أيضا يتناسب مع هذا التوصيف ؟ وأمثلة كبيرة كثيرة في متناول الجميع .
اسئلة رائعة تقودنا الى مكان لم نكن لنتصور وجوده في عالمنا من قبل ..
هل بمحض الصدفة كانت تبنى الاصناع من أنواع خاصة جدا من الحجارة وبعضها من النحاس والقصدير وبترتيب معين؟ ماهي الحوادث الكهربائية التي يمكن ان تصادفنا ان اجتمع النحاس والقصدير في الخلاء؟هل يتشكل بينمها حقل مغناطيسي مثلا؟ لما نلاحظ دائما وتبدو كقاعدة عمل أو سر كبير ينقل شفاهة فقط أن الصنم الاكبر يبنى دائما خارج مجموعة الأصنام الصغيرة وعلى مسافة منها وليس كما تصوره الافلام بينهما؟
هل كان الامام علي يكسر الاصنام فوق الكعبة كيفما اتفق وأينما وقعت ضربت يده أم كان يراعي مصفوفة رياضية معينة؟هل أخذ البنائون بعين الاعتبار خطوط هارتمان؟ لتصبح الأصنام أقرب الى شبكة موصلات ومستقبلات كهربائية. نفس الخطوط التي أطلق عليها الرومان شرايين التنين وكانوا يتجنبون بناء معسكرات جيشوهم في نقاط تقاطعها. هذه الخطوط التي اكتشفناها للتو نحن الأذكياء المتحضرون!!

هل الساعة الماسونية فوق الكعبة هي الهرم الاكبر؟ هل لاحظتم الى أن اعلاها رمز لقرني الشيطان وليس للقمر بحالة الهلال!

لما تم استبدال مسلة الشيطان التي يرجم عندها الشيطان ولما اختار الرسول مسلة في أسوأ بؤرة طاقة سلبية في العالم ولم يضع مثلا مربعا؟

لما نلاحظ وجود المسلات في ساحات أماكن صنع القرار العالمي ,مكة,الفاتيكان, البيت الابيض..
قاسيون رأس مثلث الطاقة
ان من يتحكم بمثلث الطاقة مكة-قاسيون- القدس يحقق نصرا على مستوى المجرة بكاملها,ولعل هذا يفسر حرص الانبياء على المرور على قاسيون خلال رحلاتهم .وهذا أيضا ماحدا بالله ان يولي عناية خاصة بهذه المنطقة ويتوعد بحديث قدسي بانه سوف يتدخل مباشرة لضرب كل من يريد الحاق الأذى بأهل الشام .

لأسباب تعود الى تعقيدات دولية واقليمية أهمها مناعة أسوار الشام كان الوصول الى قاسيون مستحيل ,مستثمرين خليجيين عرضوا استثمار الجبل وتحويله الى …أبراج!

العرض قوبل بالرفض.
فتحينوا الفرصة , لكن باعتباره مقاما طاقيا هل ينفع ضربه بالبارود؟ بالطبع لا’ لذا تم ضربه بقنبلة نووية تكتيكية اخترقت جوفه.هل حقا لم يجد الشرير هدفا عسكريا اكثر اهمية من قاسيون لضربه نوويا!

أتوقف هنا اليوم,في الجزء الثاني سأفصل قليلا في جذور أيتام اسرائيل من حسن البنا الى ابن الوهاب لأنتقل لاحقا لمراقبة سلوك أتباع الأثنين من نقطة أقرب …

ISSAWI VIZ Other Freed Pal Prisoners Settlements Tag

 شخصية العام 2013 : سامر العـيساوي باق في القدس

After his longest hunger strike in the world, he returned triumphantly to his village of Issawiya in occupied Jerusalem. «Al-akhbar» met the freedom fighter in his home, to hear the arduous journey of resistance which Samer Isawai fought for nine months... 
Meanwhile, Israel released 26 Palestinian prisoners prisoners as part of the so-called peace talks between the occupation authorities and the western-backed Palestinian Authority.

Israeli settlers torch Palestinian cars after prisoners freed

Jewish settlers set fire to three Palestinian-owned cars and sprayed graffiti calling for Arabs to be killed in the West Bank on Tuesday hours after Israel released 26 long-time prisoners, local media reported.
Palestinian news agency Ma'an posted photographs of three charred vehicles: a BMW, Peugeot and Renault in the northern outskirts of Ramallah near the illegal Beit El settlement.
The graffiti, sprayed on the wall of a home, read "blood will flow in Judea and Samaria" and "this is war," according to Ma'an and Palestinian state news agency Wafa. Judea and Samaria is the Israeli name for the West Bank.
Local resident Hatim Subuh was cited by Ma'an as saying that Tuesday's attack was the third of its kind in the area. Settlers from the illegal Beit El outpost are notorious for their overnight attacks on Palestinian targets, routinely setting fire to orchards, slashing tires of vehicle and assaulting residents.
Israeli occupation forces rarely prosecute the perpetrators, and have in some cases provided cover to settlers as they torched Palestinian olive trees.
The latest attack was presumably carried out in response to the release of 26 Palestinian prisoners who had been locked up in Israeli prisons for over 20 years.
Israel released the prisoners early Tuesday as part of the so-called peace talks between the occupation authorities and the western-backed Palestinian Authority.
The prisoners were the third batch of 104 detainees that Israel's prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to release in four stages. All were imprisoned before the 1993 Oslo accords.
The freed prisoners were hailed by Palestinians as heroes imprisoned for fighting against the Israeli occupation, with some welcomed back to Ramallah in the West Bank, others to east Jerusalem and the remainder into Gaza.
Palestinian media hailed the prisoners as "heroic fighters" and looked forward to the release of the final batch by end of April, when the nine-month period for talks is to end.
The 18 men taken to Ramallah were warmly embraced by PA chief Mahmoud Abbas in his presidential compound, a correspondent said, before laying flowers on the grave of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
Tuesday's release was expected to be accompanied by announcements of new construction plans for Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, including east Jerusalem, as the previous two prisoner releases were.
Such a move is likely to infuriate the Palestinians and the international community.

New Year’s Message from Muammar Al Qaddafi

Posted on December 30, 2013 by Alexandra Valiente

In 1989, the following message was released to the Christian World in the form of an open letter, by the revolutionary Muslim leader and martyr, Muammar Qaddafi. Qaddafi is one of the few Muslim leaders who truly understood the revolutionary doctrine of Tawheed, recognizing the oneness of God and God’s Creation. He dedicated his life to the task of trying to unite us in the fight against tyranny for the good of all humankind.
In this New Year’s message, Qaddafi invites all believers to enter into reflection and dialogue to solve the crisis confronting humanity. 24 years ago it was sent all over the world, but of course was suppressed and remained largely unpublished.
As we approach a new year, the Executive committee of ARM (African Revolutionary Movement) has re-released this message because it is as timely today as it was when it was first issued. We must heed the Leader’s words if we are to overcome the nefarious forces which seek to drive a wedge between African and African, African and Arab, Arab and Arab, Muslim and Muslim and Christian and Muslim. This mayhem is having a devastating impact in Africa, the so-called Middle East, an area that we refer to as Afrabia, and the entire world. Certainly it is only the forces of white supremacy and imperialism that can benefit from such division and chaos.

we came we saw he died clinton

An Open Letter to the Christian World from the Brother Leader

muammar al qaddafi
All the people of the world and perhaps Heaven’s Angels too, have grown weary of repeatedly exchanging the age old, false congratulation of ‘Happy New Year’.
Heads of State send such congratulatory expressions to one another while many of them proceed to commit actions which make the New Year an unfortunate, miserable and deadly one. Could we not meditate profoundly and recollect some verses from the Holy Quran, as well as the Holy Bible and the New Testament, which say: ‘But help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty. Help not one another unto sin and transgression.’
Let us remember how Christ vehemently reproached the people in the first sermon he gave in Jerusalem for having forgotten God’s Word and surrendering themselves to conceit. How he reproached the Priests for neglecting the service of God for their greed. How he reproached the Scribes for imparting corrupt teachings and giving up the Divine Law, and reproached the scholars for rendering the Law of God ineffective.
Now without a Christ to reprimand those who have forgotten God, those who are conceited, those who are greedy, those who are culturally corrupt and those who are transgressors of the Divine Law, we have but to reproach one another for our sins and to reprimand ourselves for such transgressions.
We must understand that we are far from the teachings of Christ and very close to the teachings of Satan. The great and rich powers spend fortunes to develop and manufacture nuclear weapons, intercontinental missiles, space programs and techniques to advance their psychological warfare programs, at a time when all the peoples of the earth are suffering from disease, malnutrition, starvation and the exorbitantly soaring cost of living.
These powers are led by Satan indeed. Their book is neither the Holy Quran nor the Holy Bible.
We are badly in need of a reiteration of the teachings of Christ where we shall find him calling for unity and saying – ‘Hands off Palestine, the birthplace of Christ – Grace be upon him – and hands off all the oppressed, colonized and persecuted peoples.’
How much the world needs Christ again. We need to abandon the excessive drinking, drug taking and immoral acts that people are encouraged to engage in around the world on every New Year’s eve and instead, on this particular night, we should go to places of worship to pray, ask forgiveness and to reflect upon the Divine Law and the way of life it prescribes for us all.
I know that the conceit of man and his straying from the right path is far stronger than my outcry, but nonetheless, I am offering the world these words. Let us remember this phrase from the Holy Bible – ‘AND IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD…’

Lebanon’s $3 Billion Price Tag

The president’s allies were taken off guard by Suleiman’s declaration, especially since he had spoken to some figures during Shatah’s funeral service that he was planning to “declare an initiative that could change the face of Lebanon.(Photo: Marwan Bu-Haydar).

In Saudi Arabia, King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz and France’s Francois Hollande – who also met Saad Hariri in Riyadh – agreed on a “royal grant” worth $3 billion paid directly to France, in return for French weapons and hardware to be delivered to the Lebanese army. But one condition for this grant is forming a cabinet in Lebanon, from which Hezbollah would be excluded.
Lebanese President Michel Suleiman took it upon himself to announce the grant and to begin implementing Saudi’s conditions. A few weeks ago, Suleiman informed Lebanese Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri and MP Walid Jumblatt, as well as Hezbollah, of his intention to form a “neutral government” without consulting anyone over the names of the ministers, based on a 14-minister lineup that Premier-designate Tammam Salam would submit to the president later. Suleiman even set a date for the stunt: after he returns from his New Year’s Eve holiday in Budapest, before 7 January 2014.
The March 8 forces, together with MP Jumblatt, tried to dissuade Suleiman and Salam from their plan, but the president would not budge, implying that there was no going back. This was the case even before the assassination of former Minister Mohammed Shatah, and things did not change after.
While some expected Suleiman to reconsider his decision following last Friday’s assassination, March 14 doubled down, rushing to demand to return to power without partnership with Hezbollah.
This should be seen as a follow-up to what happened after the assassination of Maj. Gen. Wissam al-Hassan, and the Saudi message carried by then-Gulf Cooperation Council Secretary General Abdul-Latif al-Zayani to Suleiman: Hezbollah has to choose between continuing to fight in Syria or being part of the government. Shortly after that, the government of Prime Minister Najib Mikati collapsed.
Following Shatah’s assassination, March 14’s demands went on to explicitly require isolating Hezbollah from power, and boycotting any dialogue with the Resistance Party. Commenting on the Saudi grant, Samir Geagea, leader of the Lebanese Forces, said quite clearly, “Political power is the basis, and it is our demand without which nothing, not even financial grants, would do us any good.”
Similarly, Future Movement officials and other March 14 figures said they wanted a government without Hezbollah. Leading sources in this political camp told Al-Akhbar, “We have notified President Suleiman that any negotiations regarding a partnership government involving the other side is out of question. We asked him to do what he sees fit because the ball is in his court.”
But Jumblatt opposes such a move. According to sources close to the Druze leader, he conveyed to both Suleiman and Salam a clear position: “This step resembles the decisions made on May 5 under the government of Fouad Siniora in 2008, which led to the May 7 incidents. Today, the country needs a national unity government to defuse strife in the street.” Accordingly, Jumblatt has told Speaker Berri that he would not give a vote of confidence to any government that the speaker and Hezbollah do not endorse.
For their part, March 8 forces have kept quiet about what they plan to do in response to what they call a “de facto government under the guise of neutrality.” Some extremists in this camp warned that such a government would be barred from ruling, even if that meant storming the Grand Serail – the seat of the Lebanese government.
They said, “What stopped us in 2006 from storming the Serail where Siniora was present was a phone conversation between Ali Larijani and Bandar bin Sultan, who mediated among Lebanese political rivals and drew red lines for the protests. Today, the lines of communication are broken, and no one will prevent us from defending our rights.”
The sources continued, “Bandar’s plan at the moment is to form a de facto government to draw Hezbollah into the street, under the illusion that this would force Hezbollah to withdraw from Syria to meet challenges in Lebanon. What they don’t know is that Hezbollah has prepared to face all security contingencies on more than one front, to defend the Resistance.”
The rest of the March 8 forces refuse to disclose details about their response to a de facto government. Instead, prominent March 8 sources only shared with Al-Akhbar what they said was “a characterization of reality as it stands.” In their view, “the decision to form a de facto government is part of the war Saudi Arabia is waging in the region, from Syria and Iraq, to Lebanon and Bahrain.”
The March 8 sources added, “Bandar bin Sultan is still betting on a change on the Syrian battlefield, moving toward Moscow, which has snubbed him, and moving in Bahrain, Iraq, and Lebanon to improve his position in Syria. What Saudi wants is to form a de facto government before Geneva II, for a marginal goal, namely, to have the Lebanese delegation at the conference be part of the delegations putting pressure on the official Syrian delegation. At home in Lebanon, forming a government like this means adding another nail to the coffin of the Taif Accord, the first nail having been the March 14 exclusive administration under Siniora’s first cabinet.”
The sources then said, “If Saad Hariri’s government was unable to rule, and Mikati’s government could barely issue routine decisions, how can Suleiman, Salam, and March 14 expect a government opposed by more than half of the Lebanese people to rule? How do they expect to get a vote of confidence?”
The sources raised more questions: “Can this government implement the decisions it makes? Do they not know that a government that has no vote of confidence is not entitled to take over the jurisdictions of the president in the event of a vacuum in his post?”
The sources concluded: “Where are they taking the country to? So far, our camp is still committed to peaceful confrontation. But they have given us only two examples: theassault on Mufti Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Qabbani at the Khashogji Mosque, and the slogan ‘Viva the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.’”
The slogan in question was uttered by President Suleiman, in the speech he made after a press conference scheduled earlier by the Baabda Palace was canceled. At almost the same time, clashes were taking place at Beirut’s Khashogji Mosque, amid fears of further deterioration of the situation, suggesting to some that Suleiman could have been in the process of putting forward a salvation initiative.
Instead, the president’s allies were taken off guard by Suleiman’s declaration, especially since he had spoken to some figures during Shatah’s funeral service that he was planning to “declare an initiative that could change the face of Lebanon.” But rather than doing that, Suleiman focused all his speech on announcing the Saudi grant, which was restricted to procuring French equipment for the Lebanese army, even as the majority of the latter’s hardware has been US-made since President Amin Gemayel’s tenure.

Christmas versus Xmas: A Political Reading

By Prof. James Petras

Global Research, December 28, 2013


The transformation of Christmas from a story about a migrant working-class family fleeing state persecution, in the search for a safe haven and receiving support and solidarity to the biggest capitalist commercial bonanza of the year – has far-reaching political consequences.

Taking Christ out of Christmas

The fundamental ‘change’, engineered by the capitalist class in pursuit of profits, was to take the ‘Christ Story’ out of Christmas and to convert the weeks before and after into a consumer orgy.  Aided and abetted by “secularist allies”, the capitalist class succeeded in eliminating any reference to the Christmas story, including the nativity scene and carols commemorating it, from public spaces.  The significant social message, embedded in the Christmas story, is diluted by well-meaning cultural diversity-promoters, who demand ‘equal time for ‘Hanukah’ (a Jewish narrative celebrating war, conquest and the slaughter of ‘apostate-assimilated-Hellenized’ Jews by traditionalists-fundamentalists – an event not even mentioned in the Hebrew Bible) and “Kwanzaa” (a holiday invented in the 1960’s by a cultural black nationalist preaching “self-help”).

In place of the Christmas story, we have been given anachronistic ‘Nordic tales of tree worship’ and ‘gift giving’ by an obese bearded sweat-shop owner employing stunted slave workers *(‘Hi Ho, Hi Ho! It’s off to work we go; we work all day, we get no pay! Hi Ho, Hi Ho!’).  This has become the dominant mythology driving the consumerist – profiteering of the global commercial – capitalist production chain.

Over time, it came to pass that ‘Christmas’ commercial sales became the centerpiece of capital accumulation.  New and powerful sectors of capital entered the field.  Finance capital, particularly credit card companies charging debtors usurious, interest rates over 20% per year, became central to and the principal beneficiaries of the great transformation of the Christmas story.

The new, modern, secular monetized, relativized Christmas story redefined the entire meaning of the holiday.
First, there was the language ‘excision’; the prefix was altered.  Christ-mas became Xmas. The X symbol left out what constituted the original narrative and circumstances surrounding the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

Once the original class origins of the Christmas story were erased and the conflict between the absolutist state and civil society were abolished, the capitalist class inserted its own ‘props’ into the story:  the Xmas tree became the site for consumer ‘gifts’; the Xmas ‘stocking’ had to be filled with consumer goods; the Xmas day image required the “happy family” opening up boxes of consumer goods – bought on credit at 20% interest rates.

The driving force behind the phony props and imagery is a command headquarters composed of capitalist manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, market analysts, publicists, consultants, advertisers, investors, factory owners employing a vast army of low paid workers in Asian manufacturing sweatshops and huge corporate retail outlets with minimum wage salespeople. Christmas sales are the major profit maximizing occasion for the entire year:  The success or failure of commercial capitalism rides on the profits accrued between November 30 and January 7.  The entire capitalist edifice rests on the notion that “Xmas” is about large-scale buying and selling of consumer goods; it is about ensuring that class inequalities and racial divisions are temporarily blurred; that repressive police state intrusions into the privacy of family life are forgotten and that social solidarity is replaced by an orgy of individual consumerism.

‘Xmas’ is a time to celebrate massive profiteering, based on the indebtedness of the ‘masses’.  It is a time for downsized workers to buy imported goods on credit from manufacturers who had relocated to low wage regions:  Price consciousness replaces class consciousness.  Picketing US retailers, who import from Bangladesh sweatshop death traps, where workers ‘earn’ $25 a month, goes against the ‘Xmas spirit’.  ‘Buy and feel free’!  It’s a time to be jolly!

The new secular, monetized ‘Xmas’ is a consumer-driven commercial event motivated by profits, advertisement and the mindless worship of ‘the market’.  Family and neighborly relations are now tied to the cash nexus:  Who buys or receives the most expensive gifts experiences the greatest gratification.  ‘Gift giving’ is based on ‘consumer spending’; who could imagine any alternative!

Millions of atomized individuals compete to buy the most commodities that their credit/debit cards can cover.  ‘Virtue’ becomes ‘success’ in the frantic engagement with the market.  From the perspective of political power, individual consumerist consciousness means submission to ‘the market’ as well as submission to the ruling class, which dominates ‘market relations’.

The entire ‘Xmas’ period highlights the fact that market relations between wage-earning/salaried individuals and commercial/financial elites take precedence over productive (and state) relations between capital and labor.  In “the market” the struggle is between consumers over commodities, overseen by commercial capital.  In the new Xmas story the consumer is the centerpiece; the market is the mediator of all social relations. The ‘Christ story’ has been relegated to a periphery, if not totally excluded. At most, the story is reduced to a birth scene witnessed by cows, sheep and three ‘Kings’.

The conversion of Christmas into the massive Xmas-market event broadens its consumer appeal, increases sales and profits.  Potential consumers from all religions (and the non-religious) can join the consumer orgy.  It is not about values, ethics or beliefs – it’s about buying, selling, debt and accumulation. To be a successful commercial event ‘Christians’ must suppress the politics and ethics of the Christ story, which is dramatically opposed to the immersion in the marketplace.

The Politics of the Christmas Story

The protagonists of the Christmas story, Joseph and Mary, are a working class household living at a subsistence level.  Joseph, a carpenter, is partially out of work and earns a minimum wage.  They live frugally, spend their meager earnings on essentials and travel cheaply on a donkey.  To escape a repressive government they migrate in search of security, hoping to find a new home.  The pregnant Mary and her unemployed husband Joseph look for sympathy and solidarity among the poor.  They knock on doors but the landlords send them away.  Only a poor farmer offers them a place – they can share a barn with the sheep and cows.

In the face of an uncertain future and a troubled present, Mary and Joseph receive material support from local residents in Bethlehem .  Three wise men (the Magi or mathematicians from Persia ) are internationalists who travel to greet the new family.  They show great concern for the new born baby Jesus by perhaps offering hiss family a scholarship so he can study mathematics and science….  The coming together of local neighborhood people and the three educated “outsiders” to celebrate the birth of Christ and offer support to the homeless family, dispossessed migrants, has been an event for wonder and celebration.

Bethlehem billboards and newspaper ad campaign launched by

 Community solidarity, the sharing of food, shelter, learning and fraternal good cheer, in the face of persecution by a criminal state and an avaricious ruling class, defines the spirit of Christmas.  The Christmas story affirms the virtues of social solidarity and not individual consumerism.  It defines a moment in which the deep bonds of humanity displace the shallow comfort of commodities.  It is the celebration of a moment in which the values and virtues of breaking bread in a fraternal community take precedence over the accumulation of wealth.

The Christmas story, the trials and travails of Mary and Joseph and baby Jesus resonate with millions of American workers today:  especially those who have lost employment and been dispossessed of their homes.  The Christmas story resonates with the tens of millions of immigrants persecuted and jailed by tyrannical states.  The Christmas story resonates with the millions of people of color who are “stopped and frisked” by a militarized police.

The Christmas story does not resonate with the owners, investors and publicists of big commercial enterprises who have converted the multitude into worshipers of their little plastic cards.  Taking ‘Christ out of Christmas’ and destroying the joy and fellowship and solidarity of shared humanity embodied in the celebration of the birth of Christ is essential in order to continue to accumulate wealth.  Putting the ‘Christ story’ back into Christmas is a step toward defeating consumerist consciousness and recreating social solidarity, so necessary for ending injustice.

Lines of the Game: Price to Pay for the Shatah Assassination

The assassination ought to increase pressure on the formation of a Lebanese government and a formula for a presidential agreement.
Published Saturday, December 28, 2013
The assassination of former Lebanese Finance Minister Mohammed Shatah will open a dangerous chapter in Lebanon, a bit similar to the one that followed the assassination of late Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Shatah was no ordinary man in the region, and the attack occurred at a crucial moment in Lebanon and its neighborhood’s history. Here, escalated tensions and seditions will never let such a crime pass by without major repercussions. The killer knew it!
Hariri’s assassination in 2005 was a turning point for Hezbollah’s image in the Arab and Islamic world, and contributed to the Syrian army’s withdrawal from Lebanon. These events weren’t just a result of local demands. Former US President George W. Bush and his French counterpart Jacques Chirac were also involved.
The Sunni-Shia strife that ripped Iraq apart after the American-British invasion was further consolidated when Hezbollah, with its large Shia base, was accused of murdering the new symbol of modern Sunnism in the region: Rafik Hariri. Back then, political accusation preceded all real investigations on the ground.
Now, what to expect after Shatah’s assassination?
Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri was brief, while Future bloc leader Fouad Siniora elaborated, hinting that the Syrian regime planned the crime, and its Lebanese allies, mainly Hezbollah, carried it out. In the March 14 statement, Siniora echoed the calls that followed Hariri’s murder, urging to take Shatah’s assassination to the international level, something we expect to hear quite often in the coming weeks amid international pressure on Hezbollah and Lebanon.
Head of the National Struggle Bloc MP Walid Jumblatt was alone in his call for reason and moderation. He knows quite well that some are seeking to exploit the assassination to achieve bigger political gains. He also understands that this assassination is apt to take the country from sectarian sedition to the battlefield.
The Shatah assassination occurred while Lebanon was at a crossroads. The future government and the current presidency are now up for grabs amid political bickering between Hezbollah and March 14. But behind both parties is a larger and deeper conflict taking place in Syria.
The assassination ought to increase pressure on the formation of a Lebanese government and a formula for a presidential agreement. Previously hesitant, the international community is now expected to support these solutions as the death of Shatah and the other martyrs raised the alarm about a bloody year awaiting Lebanon.
Shatah’s murder also paves the way for further assassinations, clashes, and blasts. Obviously there is a plan to transform Lebanon into an arena for a regional and international conflict that has not been settled in Syria.
What if a Hezbollah leader or ally is killed in the coming days? Will we hear that it is a retaliation for the Shatah murder? Who will break this vicious cycle?
Israel may also find an opportunity to conduct a military operation. It is reported that Hezbollah’s incursion in Syria and the widening rift with its former Sunni base offers Israel the right opportunity to strike. In Lebanon, Israel may redeem what it couldn’t achieve in Iran. At least that’s what the Israelis believe.
The assassination put the Syrian regime and Hezbollah in a raging storm of accusations at a critical time. The world is heading toward the Geneva II conference and an historic understanding with Iran. The international tribunal investigating Hariri’s murder will soon begin its sessions.
Martyr Mohammed Shatah was no ordinary man. Neither was martyr Wissam al-Hassan. Shatah, a man with hefty economic and political baggage, was, just like security man Hassan, standing on a pivotal local, regional, and international intersection. With such assassinations, it is easy to point figures, but it is hard to support accusations with evidence as political exploitation comes in smoothly.
A dark period of major transformation is awaiting Lebanon, but unfortunately the fierce battle ahead won’t yield any winners. What if a fait accompli government was imposed on Hezbollah and its allies? How will Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah put his words “don’t mess with us” into action? Those messing with him this time will have an international cover far larger than the one they had before the assassination.
