One wonders if it’s a shame or an accumulated disgust that decades after decades Arabs have been defeated, looted, demoralized, plundered, oppressed and submerged into other entities by the Western masters.
However, Arab people dislike Europeans and American powers from Tony Blair to George Bush and Putin to Obama for their fear of re-inviting the devils to play the game. Yet their leaders have no intellect and institutions to deal with problem solving and they are that impotent to rely on the Western Master for all their political needs. It’s a historical case, the political mess that Brits and Americans created in the aftermath of WWI remains today and Brits and Zionists were solely responsible for creating the present Middle east Kingdoms and installing family rules (i.e Al-Sauds, Al-Thanis, Mohammed I,II,Vs of Morocco , Bin Huseins of Jordan, Makhthoums of UAE, Al-Saids of Omans etc). The scattered and powerless Arabs simply accepted this reality without any resistance.
Over half of a century living under autocratic rules, it seems Arabs have lost the sense of rational thinking, intelligence and contemporary trend of this hypocritical World. most Arab societies, particularly the gulf societies and few in North Africa, Namely Tunisians, Egyptians and Marocs breathe air in seclusion, floating in a fantasy buble and living in an environment of self- indulged escape from the reality. They lack understanding of the contemporary global politics and conspiracies. I do not know how to name them, Fools? Ignorant? You be the judge. The contemporary Arab world is a land of amusements and false imagery of secluded happiness, extortion and painful miseries if one is to see the real pictures as people live-in.
Arabs are tribal and clan based, even within their countries, we see most of them favoring their own regions towns, and cities. within the villages and cities, we see most of them favoring their own families best interest over the over all importance of their national belonging and so on. The foreign Plan being enforced by their dictators and their European-American-Zionist masters, exposes its own strategies that Arab people should not gain any unity of purpose to be ONE People- Ummah as Islam bridged the tribal differences and enabled the much belligerent tribal cultures into a Unity of Faith- One Nation in complete submission to God. Sadly the Pan-Arabic Nationalism and racist attitudes of Arabs blind theirselves from seeing the truth. How do Arabs expect such mentality can form a strong bond with Muslim communities and non Muslim communities out side the Arab world?
All the Arab states, from Atlantic Morocco to the gulf pearl hunting Bahrain have strong western influence trained and managed by the Zionists and Americans. All these Arab states are subservient to US and one can’t just deny the Zionist presence behind the facades of US politics. That mean Zionist indirectly rules the entire Arab world and racist rulers. All the Arab military and police institutions are subservient to the Western dictates as the current affairs of Egypt demonstrate the prevalent fact.
The transitory and delusional happiness of the oil revenues have incapacitated the Arab thinking to see the unfolding present and to imagine the alarming and highly destructive developments of the coming future. The late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish once wrote that the Arabs’ state would be better without oil. And so true. Islam, in its proper perspective disappeared from the region under the European colonial rule which could be described as the Dark Age in the Middle East and It has corrupted the Arabs, allowed for renter-states and provided the basis of rule for awful regimes. This is a huge self-Contradictory of the contemporary global politics that the Arab people cannot THINK nor imagine their own future out of the box. USA, Brits, French and Zionists share strength to watch the unfolding crises degenerating the Arab societies as the Arab states and nations by geography and flags fall apart by their irrational thinking, policies and misfortunes ingrained in the discovery of oil, its outcomes and reliance on the foreign powers. May that oil be cursed.
So what went wrong? Of course, it’s Literacy. Literacy is a word that is usually associated with the positive aspects of human civilization, and of social and economic development. How come after 60 years of European colonialism, the Arab societies do not have any educated, intelligent and responsible leaders to decide their future themselves? Arab region has some of the world’s lowest adult literacy rates, with only 62.2% of the region’s population of 15 and over able to read and write in 2000-2004, well below the world average of [84%] and the developing countries’ average of 76.4%. Despite their countless numbers of wealth, what have the Arab people done for the interests of education? Why should West and Europe intervene to resolve the Arab leader’s adversity and intransigence against their own masses? Shame on Arabs. The voices of REASON and human CONSCIENCE must speak loud and clearly. no Arab rulers have legitimacy in political governance or they have chosen by the democratic Islamic principles of “Shoora” (consultation) of the people. Just before a couple of month, democratically elected President Morsi, the first democratically elected president of the 7000 years of it’s history, was overthrown by the army General, Al-Sisi, fondly dubbed ‘The Million Dollar Baby of America’ and Egypt is back to the primitive age of political desolation. All the Arab nations are in a state of political turmoil, shattered dreams and extreme uncertainty lacking any proactive plan how to come out of the prevalent political ruthlessness and viciousness ordained by the rulers.
The Arabs need no new enemies, they are doing the job perfectly in a backward system of ignorance and tribalism. Today Arab states are some extensions of USA and Israel. There are no educated, conscientious or publicly chosen leaders in the Arab- Muslim world except the recent President Morsi of Egypt and political leaders in Tunisia. But today we can clearly see the plans of some paid loyal ‘wannabe Zionist’ Arabs plotting against the democratically elected government, and they’ve succeeded in toppling the Egyptian government. With all these turmoils and bloodbaths, is the Arab world coming to its own end because of the sadistic authoritarian rulers and illiterate masses? Arabs are a failure on all the major front-lines of global affairs. While Non-Arab Muslim countries such as Turkey, Pakistan, Malaysia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan have planned ahead by diversifying their economies and making huge strides in reproductive rights, nanotechnology, Engineering, Software development, weapons technology, nuclear research, medicine, nuclear medicine and other areas, the wine drinking, carousing, womanizing, Bedouin’s countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Morocco, Oman, Jordan have done little but bribe its citizens with hands out and brutal force as a means of keeping the public at bay and themselves in power. Its many princes and kings, who build gold toilets, rent out whole Italian towns for the summer and have as many as a 100 wives each, have done nothing but spread corruption all over the world and called it Islam.
Centuries earlier the problem was well defined by Shakespeare:
“the destiny of peoples coincided with the destiny of their monarch and nobles.”
Under the circumstance, undoubtedly the gates of ‘Jahannam’ (Hell) are opened for these people and their rulers. If the current Arab nations and their people are too corrupt, illiterate and selfish then God Almighty will change them with better ones: God has no tolerance for corruption, greedy and racism which includes sinning and hypocrisy in Islam: Allah the most high says :
Here you are – those invited to spend in the cause of Allah – but among you are those who withhold [out of greed]. And whoever withholds only withholds [benefit] from himself; and Allah is the Free of need, while you are the needy. And if you turn away, He will replace you with another people; then they will not be the likes of you.(Quran 47:38)
As long as the Arabs tolerate dictatorships, Monarchies, King, Queen, royal family concepts, Royal extravagant, greed, bloody racism, Pan Arab racist nationalism and hypocritical life in their countries, God Almighty will never be satisfied with them, and He might ultimately substitute them with other better nations who are more intelligent, straight forward and sincere. As today’s statistics say: Islam is the fastest growing religion in the West and Europe. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if God Almighty got so fed up from the current Arab masses that He finally decided to make Islam live its glorious times in the West instead.
