OK folks this was written in late 2004, and I am not going to change it, even though I am not happy with the language, published on an online rag.
Introduction: The story of what has been going on in Afghanistan and Iran, with the vast amounts of death and destruction through the portal of Islamic fundamentalists, was written in the North East of America about thirty years ago.
The full story has not yet fully unfolded. Iran is the decisive shield which prevents further follow up action, against the first tier countries which are Syria and Pakistan. Then the second tier countries of Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Where they call every day in America for greater NATO involvement, and yet expand the Iraqi and Afghan security apparatus at snails pace. Bosnia after nearly ten years of ‘independence’ is now run by the local Mafia, foreign troops and NGO’s.
That is the long term plan of powerful sections of the Jewish lobby in America. The key for entry into such states, as with Afghanistan, and to an extent Iraq is Islamic fundamentalists. This group in America through the manipulation of pliant short sighted foolish proxies, and most notably the Pakistanis, have used the very weak failed state of Afghanistan to recruit and train Islamic fundamentalists, who then spread themselves out to the 57 Muslim countries of the world, and most notably with significance, in Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iraq, and Yemen.
This lobby will attempt to facilitate this objective over the next twenty years in the Greater Middle East via various serving administrations within America and not obviously just one. They have been quite desperate in achieving their objectives in that they were prepared to sacrifice 3000 lives on their own soil to achieve such an agenda.
They are doing this for two primary reasons, the first one is that they think they are full filling a vendetta based on perceived historical injustice done against their people by the people of Iran, Afghanistan and South Asia, because of that areas association with Aryans, Zoroastrians and the Swastika symbol. The second reason they are doing it is because they think they are accomplishing a service to the state of Israel by weakening and destabilizing Arab and Muslim states that are in the vicinity of Israel.
The logical response to this Jewish lobby story being manufactured through the tentacles of the sole super power on earth is for those immediate states concerned, notably Syria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, and the Muslim world in general, to first ensure that Iran, as the decisive shield against future follow up action comes to no out side initiated harm. That involves intense lobbying in Iran for the mullahs to come to their senses, and equally intense lobbying in Washington.
The second very important response and strategy is to totally eliminate that portal and tool which gives the American’s the cause and excuse to invade Muslim counties. That is Islamic fundamentalists in all Muslim countries, rather then let this Jewish lobby story unfold slowly over the next 10-20 years. It means not being passive spectators of the scenery and merely watch this story slowly unfold, but actively doing something about it.
That means through the use of state propaganda in Muslim countries portraying al-Qaeda as the tool of the Jewish lobby of America where this organization has caused, directly and indirectly, the occupation of two very important Muslim lands and yet more are threatened with occupation, once the Americans digest Iraq next year. How then does al-Qaeda who kill innocent women and children in the name of Islam, and who do not carry out any social welfare work unlike Hamas and Hezbollah, rightfully claim to be the champions of the Muslim community.
Al-Qaeda is an extremist Saudi Wahabi nationalism movement which wears the Islamic cloak to generate support from other Muslims around the world. The Pakistanis should thus deal with this leadership as soon as possible and spare no effort in finding them, since their presence on their territory serves absolutely no purpose at all to Pakistan and the Muslim world in general.
In that sense the Egyptian security apparatus have done a very excellent job, rounding up to 20,000 Islamic fundamentalists. In addition the Egyptian state has raised the level of public consciousness to new heights. Where in Egypt if you look like a fundamentalist with very suspicious activities, then ordinary people will surround you and ask you very intrusive questions and even initiate civilian body searches.
The Egyptian security apparatus is one of the best in the Third World, and thus Egypt has enjoyed political stability for the last fifty-six years of independance, and no foreign predatory power has been able to destabilize it and put a puppet regime in their place. Saddam’s Iraq, North Korea and the Chinese, also have/had good security systems. That is the level of standard that other Third World countries must aspire to.
But sadly in the case of Pakistan with the al-Qaeda and Taliban leadership operating freely on their territory, together with Syria, where both governments hug and kiss fundamentalists publicly. When they allow them to operate freely in elections and where they have clearly marked large offices in all the major cities with thousands of madrasses as the recruiting point. Then these countries are asking for trouble in the future, and are really playing with fire.
The time to act is now before it is too late. To act means not merely giving speeches to lawyers associations about the evils of Islamic fundamentalism. What is needed from all Muslim governments is a comprehensive well coordinated government financed program which targets the role of fundamentalists in such societies. They should not need to be prodded by America to do this. If we have problems of what to do perhaps all the Muslim countries should consult the Egyptians.
It also requires creating a first class security apparatus filled with intelligent graduates from the best universities which is well indoctrinated. It means tightening the security grip on the country. But one can not be like Saddam’s Iraq, or North Korea both of whom have or had excellent security apparatuses, but failed to deliver in other areas.
The second and equally important requirement, after creating a very strong security state, is economic development. So that a rapidly expanding national cake satisfies everybody to a greater and lessor degree, as with China. Attracting $53.6 billion in foreign direct investment in 2004, and yet a Communist dictatorship. Nobody tells China to democratize.
The Chinese started cultivating their commercial sector very seriously twenty five years ago, and that $53.6 billion foreign business endorsement just in one year is the result of consistent twenty five years of effort.
Economic success is thus defined by 6/7 % real annual GDP growth over a consistently long period of time. Policies for economic development involves creating a business friendly environment with political stability. In addition sound fiscal policies, with balanced budgets, a tax to GDP percentage which is at least over 20% of the overall registered GDP. Registration of as much of the unregistered economy as possible.
In many Third World societies this could be anything upwards of 60%-80%. There are many excellent consultancy organizations who are in a position to advise Third World governments about registering the black economy. So we are really talking about sound good governance, backed by a very efficient civil service.
Singapore for example, which in the last thirty years has gone from being a mosquito infested mangrove swamp once filled with half naked Malay tribesmen, to a society enjoying living standards of the first world, but is not yet a democracy.
The third requirement is using the surplus finances of the expanding prosperous state to redistribute that wealth and invest into a civil society. That means an expanding social welfare program, especially in free universal education and health. It also involves giving women, that vital part of the population which make up 50%, greater freedoms and rights, as it has been proven that progress and modernization only works when women have greater freedoms and rights both within the frame work of customary and state law.
The final requirement and goal is democracy, since some of the most successful countries in the world are democracies. Ultimately an open society filled with argument, discourse and choice is better placed to meet the challenges of that society then one that is a closed society which is run by a self serving elite (USA). But this long term goal should be tempered with the fact that there are predatory powers in this world who take advantage of Third World societies which are vulnerable and open, and thus for now I put democracy as the last requirement of the four key above requirements for Third World societies.
