The terror of things to come [Archives:2007/1017/Opinion]
By: Hassan Al-Haifi
It is quite clear that Mr. George W. Bush has no intentions whatsoever of seeing any peace in this world. On the contrary the current White House Administration is vent on making sure that even at the close of his calamitous term in office, he will make sure that the next President of the United States will be so enmeshed in problems that it would probably take five subsequent administrations to clear them up or at least keep them under control so that they do not exacerbate into a frightening Armageddon created by the follies of man.
In any case, the observer is inclined to just watch and wonder at the perplexities that men can create out of a sheer desire to spread death, destruction and pain to serve the interests of evil interests that are ready to do anything to make sure that they continue filling their pockets or realize out of this world ambitions, disguised as spiritual dictates, at the expense of human suffering. When this selfish motive is sought after for a durable period, one can surely expect that this suffering will also be enduring, communicative and multiplied many times over, because it will spread like a venomous cancer without cure.
Even when the closest of advisers to the Bush Administration are saying, “No George, you cannot stay the course”, because the course is really not taking anyone anywhere, neither the United States or any of its allies or the thousands of victims that are falling monthly for the sake of staying an endless “course”, the White House continues to hit us with its cliches of war on terror and other corny totalitarian double think talk. The President of the United States makes it clear that no matter what anybody says, Zionist interests (sometimes disguised as Neo-conservatism, or right wing Evangelical doctrinaire or any spiritual or political cover) will prevail in the New Millennium and in all the millenniums to come. If anybody doesn't like it then they will fall to the cutting tongues of Abe Foxmann of the Anti-Defamation League of Bnai Brith (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/14/magazine/14foxman.t.html?ex=1169442000&en=8a4feb19aea4d29a&ei=5070&emc=eta1) or to the arm-twisting tactics of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and the many other horrendous “lobby groups” that serve the interests of the international Zionist Establishment – and only those interests – despite the American flags on the lapels of their jackets.
In the final analysis, one is convinced that the American people have, for all intents and purposes, lost control over their destinies, as Walt and Hearsheimer of both the Universities of Chicago and Harvard and the many other concerned Americans, have said, as they helplessly watch their country is being railroaded into one quagmire after another, without purpose or without justification, except that it fulfills the long-term interests of Zionist ideologues of the likes of Benjamin Netanyahu and the military industrial complex (of course as a secondary cause d''tre only). Even former President Jimmy Carter clearly suggested that America is not only loosing sight of where its true interests lie, but where the moral convictions of the founding fathers of the United States have become distorted beyond rational grounds. To confirm the stranglehold that the Zionist lobby has on all facets of American public life, the Zionist lobby let out its sword on the former crusading president and lashed out with the usual diatribes of “bigot”, anti-Semite and all those evil concoctions that the Zionist establishment has engrained in the media world as worse off than bowing to Satan on the Day of Judgment.
Therefore, it looks like the world is in for growing troubles, not only in the Middle East, but in Chad, Somalia, Tunis and Algeria as the terrorists, which the Bush Administration is supposedly chasing, are given new grounds to unleash their bloody nuisance to further give justifications for further Zionist intrigues under the guise of avenging the victims of 9/11 and the other acts supposedly unleashed against US interests (such as the latest attacks against Somalia). In such a setting, prayer seems to be the only relief open to men (and women) of good conscience.
