The Arab League: Prelude to a US-NATO-led military campaign against Syria

by Ismail Salami

In an unprecedented move, the Arab league decided to suspend Syria and call for sanctions on the country, an act which evidently reeks of the influence the West and others exercise on those who should be the main game players rather than being merely influenced by others. What a shame!

It is not difficult to conjecture that the move is a prelude to a US-led military invasion of Syrian in the style of Libya war and an eventual war in the region. It hardly needs saying that the Arab League would have acted with calculated wisdom and prudence, if it had thought about the consequences of such irrationality.

The decision comes at a time when President Bashar al-Assad has accepted the reforms proposed by the Arab League.

A statement, read by the Qatari Prime Minister, Hamad bin Jassem al-Thani, said the League had decided “to suspend Syrian delegations’ activities in Arab League meetings” and to implement ”economic and political sanctions” against Damascus.

Sheikh Hamad said the suspension would last “until the total implementation [by Syria] of the Arab plan for resolving the crisis accepted by Damascus on November 2.”

In response to this move fraught with impending threat, tens of thousands of Syrians poured into the streets of Damascus, Aleppo, Latakia, Tartous and Hasakeh to protest the move which they see as clear betrayal of their country by the Arab League.

The facts on the ground suggest that there is an urging demand for social and political reforms in the country but the situation is not as bad in Syria as in other despotic Arab countries where the hope for reforms is zero. Calling reforms on some levels is one thing but demanding an ouster of the ruler is a horse of different color. As the situation stands in Syria, there is little demand for the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad. However, western powers are calling on the Syrian president to step down. The influence of western media on the international public opinion is so powerful that they are reluctant to see a foreign hand manipulating the events.

Reports reveal that the US and Israel have hired Saudi elements and the Saudi-backed Lebanese March 14 forces in order to foment tension in the country, thereby creating a rift between the Syrian people and the government. Washington is monitoring every move with minute precision as the fate of Syria is politically of paramount importance to the empire as it serves as an ally for Iran and poses a danger to the Zionist regime. Indeed there are some parties which follow their interests in the country.

Apart from Washington who cherishes the idea of overthrowing the regime of Bashar al-Assad and installing a puppet regime in Syria with the firm intention of serving the interests of the Zionist regime in the region, the Saudi Wahhabis insist on the collapse of the Syrian regime. For Washington and Israel, the ouster of al-Assad will ensure the two regimes’ vantage point in the Middle East to contain the ever-increasing influence of the Islamic republic in the region and for the Saudis, it serves a similar purpose on a wider scope. In fact, the Saudi Wahhabis hold the Shia Muslims in abhorrence and make every possible effort to create Shiaphobia in the world.

To the Wahhabis, Shia Muslims and moderate Sunnis are but infidels and should be killed and their blood is not upon their shoulders. What they conceive of the Shia Muslims is indeed a horrid image which fails to fit into any plausibly logical order. This irrational hatred becomes the prime motivation for the Wahhabis to engage in stoking up unrest in some border cities in Syria which throws full support behind Iran and Hezbollah. In a similar vein, the Saudi Wahhabis fully backed the dictatorial Bahrain regime in eliminating the Shia Muslims and crushing with brutality the popular uprising in the country. This double standard in Saudi policy deserves due attention. They back the despotic Bahraini regime which spares no efforts in quelling the pro-democracy protesters who are killed on a daily basis while on the other hand, they fund and back the insurgents in Syria to overthrow the regime. It seems that democracy is defined differently in different contexts and situations.

Parenthetically, the Saudi Wahhabis play a double game in their relations with Washington and Israel. In fact, they have an ambivalent feeling for these two. On the one hand, Wahhabis treat them with hatred and eliminate their elements under the influence of their extremism and on the other hand, they enter into easy alliance with the Zionists and the US when the trio have a common enemy in several regions of the world.

There are times when you marvel at how events happening in one place are twisted to the benefit of one group and to the loss of another.

Concerning the US interference and the conspiracy of the Saudi Wahhabis in Syria, either we should choose to remain ignorant or we should open our eyes to the reality of things with surmountable doubt and reluctance.

    Since the Second World War, the sole subject of the ancient conspiracy – the Jewish hatred of the Gentile nations – and the historical records which show the massive destructive influence which Jews have had upon mankind have all been made taboo.

    In 1865 a certain Jewish rabbi named Rzeichorn delivered a speech at Prague which is a very accurate summary of many aspects of the Protocols. It is also a stark eye-opener for anyone who harbours the impression that true Orthodox Judaism is a religion like others based upon the pursuit of spiritual betterment, love and universal peace. Just like the Protocols the plan described within has provably come to pass.

    “Gold in the hands of experts will always be the most useful weapon for those who possess it and an object of envy for those who are without it. With gold one can buy the most upright consciences. With gold one can fix the value of every stock, or every merchandise, one can loan it to states that afterwards one holds at one’s mercy. Already the principal banks, the stock exchanges throughout the world, the loans to all the governments are in our hands. The other great power is the Press by ceaselessly repeating certain ideas the Press in the end makes them considered as true. The theatre renders similar services. Everywhere theatre and press follow our directives.”

    “An indefatigable campaign in favour of the democratic form of government will divide the Gentiles amongst themselves in political parties, and we shall thus destroy the unity of their nations. We will sow the seed of discord. Powerless they will have to accept the law of our banks, always united, always devoted to our cause.”

    “We will push the Christians into war by judicious exploitation of their pride. They will massacre each other and thus make more space where we can place our own people. The possession of land has always procured influence and power. In the name of social justice and equality we will divide the great properties. We will give small fragments of these properties to the peasants who desire them with all their heart but who will soon be indebted to us by the very exploitation of these properties. Our capital will enable us to become the real masters. In our turn we shall become the great owners of land and this possession will assure our power.”

    “Let us use all our force to replace the circulation of gold by that of paper. Our banks will absorb the gold and we shall decide then what value the paper money will have. This will make us the masters of every man’s existence. We will have amongst ourselves many fine orators capable of feigning enthusiasm and of convincing the masses. We will send them among the nations to announce the changes that will make for the happiness and prosperity of mankind. By gold and by flattery we will win the proletariat who will take on their shoulders the job of exterminating Christian capitalism. We will promise to the workers salaries that they have never even dared dream of, but we will also heighten the price of all necessities, so much so that our profits will be even greater.”

    “In this manner we will prepare the revolutions that the Christians will conduct themselves and out of which we shall collect the fruits. By our jokes and by our attacks we will render their priests ridiculous and eventually odious. Their religion as ridiculous and as odious as their priests.”

    The above is almost an exact paraphrase of the Protocols of Zion the document which supplies the most revealing insight into the modus agendi and the modus operandi of the world manipulators. It illuminates the reason for the massive success of international Zionism, every single political situation of the last century and much of what has transpired for the past 2000+ years on the world stage.

    The evidence that it is long standing is proved from the Bible:

    Jeremiah around 590 BC: 11.9:

    “And the ‘I am’ said unto me : a conspiracy is found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem”

    Ezekiel around 585 BC: 22.25 :

    “There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey they have devoured souls…”

    Ezekiel : 22.6 :

    “Her priests have violated my law…”

    Ezekiel :22-27:

    “Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey to shed blood and to destroy souls to get dishonest gain”

    Recent world political history has been provably controlled and manipulated by Russian Jews who have no racial ties or origin in the land of Palestine

  2. Winston Churchill (himself of course an “agent”) wrote:

    “It would almost seem that the Gospel of the Christ and the Gospel of Anti Christ were destined to originate amongst the same people. Can it be that such pervasive Jewish control which we are seeing today is the harbinger of even greater Jewish control to come?”

    jewish control which we are seeing today…..you won’t hear that in the mass media!

    even greater jewish control- you bet!!
