Be warned: This post is not politically correct. It is radical and inciteful and angry.
And if I am to be labelled a sympathizer or supporter or terrorist, so be it.
An announcement was made that the ICC will investigate the Brother Leader, Muammar Gaddafi, for crimes against humanity.
Are we surprised?
Of course not!!!!
What with Osama Bin Laden out of the picture, the Americans and their cronies are in search of a new Bogeyman!
If the revered Ocampo was interested in justice and the rule of law, cases of Israeli brutality and American torture would long have resulted in the incarceration of Netanyahu, Barak, Livni, Bush, Cheney, Obama and the rest of the criminals. Instead, the ICC has become well known for targeting African countries and acting as the long arm of Uncle Tom who continues to act with impunity.
Gaddafi may not be innocent but who is America and NATO to decide? Can the people of Libya not be left to determine how they want to live? Strange that the very Americans who held back opinion and action in the case of the Egyptian uprising are now in full onslaught against Gaddafi in simulation of Iraq. Next I'm sure we'll hear amazing stories of weapons of mass destruction!!!!
They fabricate the rules that we are to abide by but find nothing wrong in bending those rules to conduct targeted extra-judicial assassinations in utter violation of sovereignty and human dignity. They feed us lies and we gullibly turn to gluttons of the untruths and join in their drunken celebrations at the dishonour of our name.
"Muslims' blood has become the cheapest blood and their money and wealth are plundered by the enemies. Your blood has been spilled in Palestine and Iraq. The image of that dreadful massacre in Qana, Lebanon, is still vivid in one's mind, and so are the massacres in Tajikistan, Burma, Kashmir, Assam, the Philippines, Fatani, Ogaden, Somalia, Eritrea, Chechnya, and Bosnia-Herzegovina where hair-raising and revolting massacres were committed before the eyes of the entire world clearly in accordance with a conspiracy by the United States and its allies who banned arms for the oppressed there under the cover of the unfair United Nations.
"When 60 Jews are killed inside Palestine, all the world gathers within seven days to criticise this action, while the deaths of 600,000 Iraqi children did not receive the same reaction."
We seem to accept the million and more deaths of innocent civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan in retaliation for the mere 3000 of 9/11, which no one knows for sure was orchestrated by OBL since he'll never be afforded an opportunity to tell his side of the story, although in the days after the 9/11 attacks, he said in an interview:
"As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. Neither I had any knowledge of these attacks nor I consider the killing of innocent women, children, and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children, and other people. Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of a battle. It is the United States, which is perpetrating every maltreatment on women, children, and common people of other faiths, particularly the followers of Islam."we are against the American system, not against its people, whereas in these attacks, the common American people have been killed. we are not hostile to the United States. We are against the system, which makes other nations slaves of the United States, or forces them to mortgage their political and economic freedom."
Do we honestly think that after his murder, his corpse was treated with respect and dignity? Do we truly believe that this could at all be possible after Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and all the extraordinary renditions?
We welcomed Obama when he was elected, thinking he would transform American policy, change the world, reach out to muslims. We didn't question when he stood alongside Hosni Mubarak to address the Muslim world - we praised him. And now? Now we applaud him and we say good riddance to OBL who never represented us.
We say all this because we're comfortable being led by the devil and dancing to his tune, the beautiful symphony that was written by the Rand Institute on how to make Muslims more moderate - a more diluted version of us that would be acceptable to Americans.
We never listened to anything OBL ever said because we already branded him a madman, a zealot. It was easy for us to accept this and go back to our lives looking out at the world through the muddied veils fashioned for us on the blood-smeared catwalks.
It was this madman who denounced the American New World DISORDER and called for an economic boycott against the products that finance the bullets, bombs and drones that kill innocents. And we forget that the hunt for OBL began in 1991-2, long before 9/11, when he opposed the American military presence in the Arabian peninsula readying themselves for the first Gulf War against Saddam. We dilute history and ignore the calls for occupiers to leave Arabia and for the corrupt Saudi regime to be opposed - the same Saudis who are the self-appointed custodians of the haramain, the same saudis who used the name of God to torture and imprison any clerics or youth who opposed them, the same Saudis who imprisoned OBL's teenage sons and prevented his 3-year daughter from travelling until he stopped speaking out against King Fahd. They fabricated lie after lie and fed it to us until we forgot that we were choking on the white phosphorous fumes and the blood of innocents. And still we pretend we don't know the truth. The bounty on his head was imposed long before he even issued a fatwa against America and the media campaign to brand him a lunatic began almost a decade before 9/11 and even when there was no evidence linking him to attacks on the American bases in Saudi Arabia or the bombings of the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
"The accusation that we support terrorism is a hostile, imperialist method designed to suppress Muslims' determination and paralyze their movement toward one another and toward their religion and faith"
And even now, with the Arab Spring, the Awakening, we think it is better that OBL was removed from the picture, just as we thought it was good for Saddam to be dragged out of a hole and hanged.
Of course we've forgotten that OBL's call for an Arab uprising was made in the 1990's against the Imperial occupiers and their pawns in Saudi Arabia and other Arab and Muslim countries - a call that went unheeded until now because anyone who calls for such are megalomaniacs, Yes this madman believed that there would be an awakening in the Arab world and that this was necessary to rid the Arab world of the deceitful, corrupt, dictators.
"Whenever a president and a king met they used to say that they discussed the Palestinian cause. Fifty years later, the clear picture emerged; namely, they met not only to betray the mujahidin in Palestine but to denounce these cubs whose fathers and brothers were killed, imprisoned, and tortured in defense of their religion and for endeavoring to evacuate the occupiers from their land. The proverb says: Clear things are impossible to explain."
We believed that he opposed women's education or even their involvement in society but ignore that he married a doctor and teachers, educated women or that most of his statements addressed both men and women equally and in an interview he even said:
"Hazrat Aisha was a great scholar of Islamic law. She is the narrator of largest number of Hadith. Therefore, we are not against the education of women"
And now we believe the propaganda of porn and human shield wives and luxury million dollar mansions - all fabricated stories to discredit, demonize and defame.
Tomorrow it will be a new bogeyman, new fiction sold as fact and we'll happily sell our souls for an autographed copy of the bestseller!
