…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
I was not surprised when Hussain Obama dropped his would-be imperial visit to India like a hot curry and rushed to Saudi Arabia for instructions from the new king. After all, nothing less is expected from the head of a vassal state.
Instead of repeating myself, I quote Mr Pickering: Forget the conspiracy theories, there is now no doubt where Barrack Hussein Obama’s faith allegiance lies: “There is no sweeter sound on Earth than the Muslim call to prayer.” “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.” “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.” “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”, he said. In his book, ‘The Audacity of Hope’, he wrote, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
Thanks to him, our weakling Abbott, traitorous ABC, ALP, Greens and assorted appeasers, the winds are not shifting. They blow from Mecca ever more strongly, spreading the smell of burning human flesh over the civilised world.
Many thinking people, which obviously excludes journalists and politicians, wonder what is the difference between beheading adulteresses and beheading of Christians, all in the name of Islam; the first by the West supposed ally and friend Saudi Arabia and the second by the evil Islamic Horde, supported, surprise!, by our “friend” Saudi Arabia.
The result of WW I imperialistic desires of France and Great Britain, and anti-imperialist posturing of USA, leavened by Zionism and increasingly important oil, led to the creation of Wahhabist Saudi Arabia. There are many contenders for the top spot in “Enemies of Reason” hit parade, and Wahhabism has to have very good chance. The highly literate and sophisticated French, British and Yank diplomats, no slouches in hypocrisy, greed and hubris themselves, were neatly outsmarted by the nomadic, illiterate Arabs and left the oil fields under their control. Physical control of the so called holy sites, Medina and Mecca, bestowed legitimacy of sorts on the tribe of desert robbers, which last to this day.
Many books describe the West’s folly. The one I read last is by Scott Anderson – Lawrence in Arabia: War, Deceit, Imperial Folly and the Making of the Modern Middle East / (Wall Street Journal review– Seven Pillars of Fiction)
The alliance between Wahhabist clergy and the Saudi rulers can not be described as “Holy”. Some Western journalists and majority of politicians believe that Al Sauds tribe is the most reformist in the Arab world, the belief many beheaded and stoned Saudis might have disputed, given the opportunity. The ever infallible The Economist claims: The main risk for the Al Sauds is that they move to slowly and they may be overwhelmed. The Wahhanabism they nurture endangers not just the outside world, but the dynasty itself. It sustains jihadist ideology, stokes sectarianism and exposes the monarchy to charges of hypocrisy.”
Hmm. Who is going to do the “charging”? The media? Obama? The President of United States has done more to support jihadism than any Iranian ayatollah could ever hope to do. Just a few days ago he vetoed the Keystone pipeline in order to sustain US dependency on Arab oil. As 47% of Americans approve of him, I should perhaps desist.
