Problem, reaction, solution is a Jew conjuring trick within their forever wandering diaspora in order to play the victim, and influence global changes in laws to protect all their historic and contemporary lies ……Who still falls for this old Yiddish trick manipulating policy changes to hide and protect Jewish crimes, acting out Trotsky’s theory of permanent revolution against the gentile, changes which gives (((them))) immunity when hiding the truth.

If I converted to Buddhism, does that make me Chinese? If I converted to Hinduism, does that make me Indian? When Khazarians (Mongol Turks) converted to Judaism in 740 BC and stole the true Negro Hebrew identity, and turned them into slaves... did that make the counterfeit Jews Hebrew? Well, the Jew World Order seems to think so. They crucified Jesus Christ for exposing them.

The invention of the Muslim Terrorist is the latest invention by the Jews, to spread fear and dismantle governments that are not yet puppets of the Jews...or have decided to stop serving the Jews.. justifying raping the World, and slaughtering billions of innocent genuine semite and gentile families in every country for power and control... under the illusion of Freedom and Democracy.

The Invention of the word JEW

The Invention of the word JEW

 

The word “Jew” is a relatively modern invention used, seemingly indiscriminately and interchangeably, by 18th century redactors to describe Israelites, Judahites and Judaeans. It first appeared in these eighteenth century Bibles and it first appears within these redactions in 2 Kings 16:6 …. in an episode that describes a war between Israel and Judah: when Rezin, king of Syria and Pekah, king of Israel went to war with wicked Ahaz, king of Judah. The Syrians “drove the Jews from Elath” who were in possession of it and so here is the first time that the inhabitants of the kingdom of Judah are called “Jews” when more properly they should be called Judahites. However, the point here is this: the very first time the word “Jew” is found in the modern Bible, they are at war with Israel.
Edomites are therefore descended from Edom (Esau) whose descendants later intermarried with the Turks to produce a Turco-Edomite mixture which later became known as Khazars. That is, most of today’s Jews are descendants of this interbreeding that produced a race called Khazars who had once governed an empire called Khazaria. Furthermore, this hybrid race Edomite/Turk/Khazar who created the Khazar kingdom and who between the seventh and ninth centuries AD, adopted the religion of Judaism. And, it is these Khazar Jews who are the ancestors of the vast majority of today’s Jewish people. That is, Edomite/Turk/Khazars are the ancestors of the modern “Jews” including the Torah-true and Zionist Jews who spuriously claim right to the land of Palestine claiming it it is theirs by biblical demands and ancestral rights.

Consequently, the majority of today’s Jewish people are known as “Jews” not because they are Judahites and descended from Jacob/Israel but because their Edomite/Turk/Khazar ancestors in their Kingdom of Khazaria adopted the religion of Judaism, called themselves “Jews” and arrogated the Birthright Promises and Bible Covenants belonging to the Israelites, but especially those belonging to the Judahites.

Thus, “Jews” are not Israelites and certainly they are not Judahites. Hence, modern Jews are not heir to the Bible Covenants nor to the ancient Nation of Israel given by Yahweh to the Israelites and the Judahites and so have no Divine Right or biblical mandate to the modern Land of Palestine.

Similarly, Jesus of Nazareth was not a “Jew” he was a Judahite, and Jesus Christ was not “King of the Jews.”

Ukraine apologists pinning Kiev’s dispute with Hungary on Russia is completely ludicrous

SOCHI – Here we go again. Kiev and Budapest are at each other’s throats. The latest escalation came after Ukraine expelled Hungary’s consul in the border town of Berehove, accusing him of illegally offering citizenship to ethnic Hungarians living there.

READ MORE: Ukraine, Hungary expel consuls in escalating double citizenship row

The bitter row between the two neighbors is, of course, Moscow’s fault. Because neither of them have any agency of their own, if you listen to western analysts. Presumably because they are East European and incapable of thinking for themselves. 

What’s more, we have to believe there are no local historical grievances at play and the Ukrainian government is an innocent party in the shambles.

This is what many “experts” have been saying over the past week. Take Anton Shekhovtsov, a former lobbyist at the pro-Brexit “Legatum.” He wrote on Twitter: “Moscow’s two immediate aims with regard to Ukraine: 1. Escalate the Ukraine-Hungary conflict. Tactics: physical attacks on Ukrainian citizens holding Hungarian passports (luckily for Moscow, a Ukrainian government-related website published personal details of those citizens).

READ MORE: ‘You lie’: Kiev under Hungarian fire after Ukrainian gov denies ties to ‘death lists’

And yes, he’s correct about the last part. A Ukraine state-backed far-right portal, Myrotvorets, really has exposed private data of Hungarian officials. A collection described as a “death list” by Hungary. Which is also aggrieved at calls for deportations in the Rada, Kiev’s parliament.

Tag Team

At the same time, Shekhovstov’s former Legatum colleague Anne Applebaum has gone full tin-foil hat.

She wrote “here’s my guess: (Vladimir) Putin has offered (Viktor) Orban the Hungarian- speaking province of Ukraine, part of his long term plan to break up the country,” in response to a Hungarian journalist asking, “what the hell is happening between Hungary and Ukraine, why are diplomatic tensions rising dramatically?

Now, that’s a hell of a conspiracy theory. The Washington Post columnist is suggesting the premier of a NATO and EU member has agreed a secret deal with the alliance’s chief contemporary enemy. Furthermore, she’s made no allowances for Orban’s nationalism, which obviously influences his feelings about ethnic Hungarians abroad. And also plays to his base.

However, what’s worse is Applebaum’s use of disinformation. Because there is no “Hungarian speaking province” in Ukraine. Instead, the place Applebaum presumably refers to is Zakarpattia Oblast, where (in 2001) 81% spoke Ukrainian against only 12% Hungarian. Given salaries are three or four times higher in Hungary itself, the latter figure is probably much lower now. But, alas, Kiev hasn’t conducted a census for 17 years so one can only surmise.

Meanwhile, Budapest’s foreign minister Peter Szijjarto has been smeared as a “Russian spy” and the Ukrainians have apparently mounted a troop build-up in the border region. Which, as it happens, is a NATO frontier. Yes, the same alliance that President Petro Poroshenko says his country wishes to join.

Two Faces

While EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker has described Ukraine as “not European in the sense of the European Union,” Hungarians are still bewildered with the present carry on. Because, after all, the economic basket case is dependent on Western aid to keep afloat and Budapest has various vetoes at different fora which it can use to stymie Kiev’s ambitions.

And another thing clearly understood in Hungary is that this nonsense is not some sort of Russian plot. Because here are the most prominent reasons Hungarians I canvassed this week gave for the breakdown in relations.

  • Kiev passing an education law that forbids teaching in minority languages. 
  • The Lvov region in Western Ukraine approving a language law that attacks minority 
  • Petro Poroshenko sending a combat battalion to Beregovo, a traditionally Hungarian town a few kilometers from the border  
  • Kiev suddenly enforcing, previously ignored, rules on dual citizenship, perceived as being aimed directly at Hungarians in Ukraine
  • Kiev’s foreign minister going on national television to cook “Ukrainian” versions of traditional Hungarian meals while saying that “we need to have more Ukraine” in regions with Hungarians.  

Let’s face facts, Hungary and Ukraine are both presently controlled by hyper-nationalist administrations. And they have a historical issue regarding Zakarpattia, which was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918. If Russia was somehow blasted into outer space tomorrow morning, these differences would remain.

And if you read Ukrainian media, it accuses a “Hungarian NGO (of) spreading fake(s) about (the) persecution of national minorities in Ukraine.” With no mention of Russia. Because, this dispute needs Moscow’s encouragement like a fish needs a bicycle.

That’s not to pretend the conflict distresses Moscow in any way. Especially given it’s hardly a secret that the Kremlin wants to prevent NATO from expanding into Ukraine, for its own security reasons. Nevertheless, Kiev and Budapest find themselves at loggerheads of their own accord. And to deflect by pretending Russia has created the conditions for the crisis is absurd.

The Kanye effect: Black Americans declaring allegiance to Trump may mean disaster for Democrats

At least since the 1960s, following a raft of civil rights legislation put forward by John F. Kennedy, it has been accepted as gospel that the only party for African Americans is the Democratic Party. Today, however, some members of this demographic are beginning to stray from the pack, coming around to the conclusion they would be better off as card-carrying Republicans.

The latest phase of this political awakening, as it were, occurred last week as the singer Kanye West committed a heresy – at least as far as the Liberals were concerned – far worse than mocking Taylor Swift during a music awards ceremony. Not only did the star musician meet with Donald Trump in the Oval Office for a highly publicized ‘meeting of the egos,’ Kanye railed against the Democratic Party, blaming it for the many travails now besetting African Americans.

As Trump nodded in silent approval, West went off on a ten-minute tangent, tossing out juicy sound bites for the political pundits to chew over, arguing that “people expect that if you’re black you have to be Democrat.” On the question of sporting his bright red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, West mentioned his fatherless childhood that lacked “male energy” and positive role models, saying the cap made him “feel like Superman.

A bigger trigger could not be found in all of America, not even in a Clint Eastwood film. In other words, the Democrats went ballistic. After all, they know what is at stake here.

A tiny sampling of the massive outpouring of visceral hate Kanye endured could be summarized in a single remark by Michael Dyson, an African American academic who appeared on MSNBC, accusing West of committing – wait for it – “white supremacy via ventriloquism.

A black mouth is moving,” argued Dyson, “but white racist ideas are flowing from Kanye West’s mouth.”

So even when a black man articulates profound ideas of his own, he gets accused – this time by another black man, no less – of being the puppet of some white people and their racist ideas. To me, that sounds like Mr Dyson doesn’t have a whole lot of respect for the cognitive abilities of his own race, especially when not a word Kanye uttered in the Oval Office carried racist overtones.

Another Democratic defector is Candace Owens, an up and coming YouTube/Twitter star who argues that African Americans are trapped in a “hamster mentality” in that every four years they vote Democrat only to find themselves still stuck on the hamster wheel, forgotten by the very politicians they put into office.

Owens goes on to make a compelling yet arguable case against the stereotypical belief that the Democratic Party is automatically a force for good for black people. Although the Democrats under John F. Kennedy were responsible for ushering in the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (signed into law by Lyndon Johnson in 1964 following Kennedy’s assassination), Owens argues that the history before that event has been forgotten.

Democrats are actually the ones who imposed segregation, and they were the ones majorly against voting to desegregate our communities in both the 1950s and the 1960s,” she states in one viral video, entitled ‘How to escape the Democratic plantation. “By 1900, twenty-two black Republicans served in the US Congress. The Democrats didn’t elect a single one until 1935.”

In the heat of the 2016 Presidential Election, another YouTube sensation, comprised of two black sisters from North Carolina who go by the name ‘Diamond and Silk,’ announced to their nearly one million Twitter followers they would not be voting Democrat because “Hillary Clinton is not our slave master.” These Democratic dissidents love to remind their audiences that Abraham Lincoln, for example, was a Republican who was responsible for ending slavery a long time ago and therefore African Americans should line up and buy the Republican brand today. If only history were so simple.

At first glance, it is tempting to dismiss these dissenting voices as mere blips on a vast radar screen, a tiny percentage of the estimated 38 million African Americans now living in the US. And that may be very true. After all, the maddening thing about living in the age of social media is that events that seemed of paramount importance one day slip away into complete irrelevancy the next.

Nevertheless, there are some indicators out there to suggest that many African Americans appear to have found some redeemable qualities in Donald Trump.

Although it is no secret that poll numbers can be expertly massaged to produce the desired response, a recent tally of the president’s approval rating indicated that 36 percent of African-Americans viewed Trump favorably. If correct, that is nearly double his level of support registered among that demographic group one year earlier. That figure sounds even more impressive when it is considered that Trump attracted just 8 percent of the African-American vote in 2016.

However, here is where the situation gets more complicated.

Many observers argue – and rightly, it would seem – that Trump is simply basking in the afterglow of his predecessor, Barack Obama. During the two-term presidency of America’s first black president employment rates among black Americans began to surge, continuing an upward trajectory that spliced into Trump’s presidency.

Thus, it was no surprise that Democrats cried foul in April of this year when Trump assumed all the credit as unemployment rates among African Americans fell to 6.6 percent — the lowest such rate on record.

Trump is certainly not the first president to portray the positive results of his tenure as due primarily to his own personal efficacy and skills. At the same time, with the midterms fast approaching, the Democrats will be working hard to remind their base about their own contributions, probably twisting facts as well. In short, both sides will be fighting hard to win the votes of the African American community, which carries enough weight to tip the scales one way or the other.

Regarding the question as to which party is best suited to represent black Americans it is probably too early to say. Maybe neither. Maybe America needs to finally get a third-party option that breaks the two-party paradigm that the country and its people seem reluctantly stuck with.

The most important thing, however, is that this critical conversation has begun among African Americans. Finally, this long-oppressed demographic is waking up to the realization that it has immense influence inside of America’s two-party political system, and all the more so with the critical midterms just weeks away.

Indeed, the African American vote may very well decide the trajectory of US politics for many years to come, and politicians ignore this group at their own peril.

Breaking Brexit: England’s difficulty is Ireland’s opportunity – by George Galloway

Though that’s not the worst that could happen to Theresa May and her threadbare government over the next days and weeks.

It’s unlikely that the current House of Commons will have a majority for a “No Deal” Brexit, but then it is not required too. The Article 50 clock is ticking and when the time is up it is up. Brexit without a deal doesn’t require an affirmative vote in Parliament, it is the default position.

A full-blown crisis would then ensue of course, but that wouldn’t stop Brexit.

In a rational state a general election would then be called to elect a government with the confidence of the people to deal with the crisis. But that too is not automatically possible.

Under the fixed-term parliament act – brought in by David Cameron, the author of the Brexit referendum – the next election is in 2022 – unless 2/3 of the parliament vote for one. On the principle that turkeys seldom vote for Christmas that number seems unattainable.

There is another way an election can happen – if the House passes a vote of no-confidence in the government, and (a crucial caveat) the Queen is not persuaded that a new prime minister who can command a majority in the existing House can be found – she may dissolve parliament and call new elections.

Such a no-confidence motion could pass – so tight is the parliamentary arithmetic it might only take a couple of taxis full of Tory supporting MPs to be late for the vote and, hey, its lost.

Or the Democratic Unionist Party – the collection of Creationists cranks, homophobes, Catholic-haters, sectarians, and bigots on which Mrs May clings to power every other day of the week – could withdraw their support and bring the House down.

Mind you they are mindful that to do so might put Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn – literally the antithesis (they’d say the anti-Christ) of everything they stand for into Downing St. But Samson brought the House down upon himself and so might they.

It is kismet on a truly remarkable scale.

Centuries of British imperial domination of Ireland partially ended nearly a hundred years ago with the victory of the Irish republican war of independence. But not completely. Desperate for the strategic advantage (in those days) of one of Ireland’s famous Four Green Fields to call their own, to save imperial face (Ireland had struck after all the first great blow to the British Empire which at its height held a third of the world in its bondage) and to avoid having to fight the mainly Scottish Settlers it had planted there centuries before and who were threatening to resist Irish Independence, the British withdrew to a wholly artificial creation they called “Northern Ireland.”

It wasn’t as it happened all of the north – that would have risked one day a Catholic majority – it wasn’t even all of Ulster (which is often used wrongly as the name of the “Province” which remains in Britain) it was a carefully gerrymandered entity in which it was thought the Protestant pro-British majority would endure forever. Though just to be on the safe side the Catholics within it were made explicitly second class citizens, without civil and voting rights, policed by a blatantly sectarian auxiliary force – the B-Specials who would become a byword for brutality.

Unforeseen by the British and their allies the 1960s wave of civil rights and the struggles of Black people in America swept across the Atlantic and broke on the Irish coast in 1968 with great civil rights marches under the slogan “One man One Vote“. When the peaceful marches were put down with savage indeed civil-war levels of violence the scene was set for decades of all-out war between Irish Republicans and the British Occupiers assisted by their “Northern Irish” comprador. It would be a war like none other as civil wars usually are.

Unforeseen too was that the gerrymandering would ultimately unravel. As a result of the Irish Catholic birth rate (as someone from that stock I have five children, which would have been regarded as merely average in Ireland back then) and the steady outflow of middle-class educated Northern Irish Protestants seeking a more relaxed life for their own families elsewhere, the sectarian balance which was supposed to “Keep Ulster British” forever now has almost half of its citizens from Catholic backgrounds who overwhelmingly look to Dublin (and the US in fact) rather than London.

The DUP may keep the British government in power but they now represent less than 30% of the voters of Northern Ireland.

Worse, in the Brexit referendum the majority of all voters voted to remain in the European Union opening up an existential crisis in the province with now a clear majority preferring to leave Britain if the price of staying is to leave the EU.

READ MORE: ‘Groundhog day’ – Corbyn slams May as she updates parliament on Brexit

Mrs May’s party to give it its Sunday name is the Conservative and Unionist Party. It now faces Hobson’s choice. Give up the Union by agreeing with EU demands that the border between Brexit Britain and the EU must be down the middle of the Irish Sea, or give up Brexit by remaining in the Customs Union and the Single Market leaving BRINO or Brexit in Name Only.

Until today I was unsure how the Conservatives would break. But like a veteran Kremlinologist who could tell who was up and who was down in the old Soviet Union by watching the body language on the reviewing stand. I, who spent nearly 30 years on the British Parliament benches, was watching the mood music and the body language as closely as I was listening to the words. By the end I was in no doubt. It was the end of the Tory-DUP unholy alliance. The beginning of the end of “Northern Ireland”. And maybe the end of Theresa May too.

Trump spins cover-up for Saudi killing, signaling no ‘turning-point’ in US relations

Some 22 US senators have invoked the Global Magnitsky Act which could trigger economic sanctions against Saudi Arabia over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Current and former senators are saying the alleged murder in a Saudi consulate in Turkey on October 2 is a “turning point” for Washington’s decades-old alliance with Riyadh.

Former Republican Senator Bob Graham told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour the Saudi relationship is “perfidious” and harmful to America. He referred in particular to what he called was Saudi state complicity in the 9/11 terror incidents in 2001, when nearly 3,000 US citizens were killed.

Graham said the US must use Magnitsky laws to punish Saudi Arabia over the disappearance and murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and to not “capitulate to economic blackmail.” The latter point was an implicit reference to President Trump saying earlier he was reluctant to cancel weapons sales to Saudi Arabia worth $110 billion.

The original Magnitsky Act, signed into law in 2012, was designed to punish Russia with sanctions over alleged human rights abuses. In 2016, it was expanded to place the rest of the world under US authority as well. Its targeting of Russia has been disputed as a controversial political weapon, not reflecting actual human rights abuses. Nevertheless, the law has international application against any foreign government or individual deemed by the US congress as a violator of human rights.

In the case of Saudi Arabia and the missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi that would seem to be a clear incident meriting Magnitsky-type sanctions.

But whether US legislators actually follow through with threats to punish Saudi Arabia and its rulers is a moot question. The pressure is certainly on Washington to do so. If Russia has been targeted with several rounds of sanctions under the Magnitsky Act, over questionable allegations of corruption, then surely the Saudis should be in the firing line for official US censure.

The apparent murder of 59-year-old Khashoggi at a Saudi consulate is such a shocking crime. All the more pressing is that he was a legal resident of the United States – having gone into self-imposed exile from his native Saudi Arabia last year – and he was a prominent columnist for the Washington Post.

READ MORE: US won’t impose economic sanctions against Saudis to protect its arms sales to kingdom – analysts

Khashoggi was well-connected in Washington with various establishment think-tanks and other media circles. His critical writing on the Saudi rulers and in particular dubious reforms being carried out by heir to the throne Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had a receptive audience among lawmakers and policy makers who have been growing skeptical of Riyadh’s value to the US.

Turkish criminal investigators gained access to the Saudi consulate this week – 13 days after Khashoggi went missing. Media reports say the Turks have found forensic evidence to prove the journalist was killed in the building, consistent with what Turkish government sources had been leaking over the past two weeks.

The dramatic capitulation by the Saudi rulers is a sign that the game is up for their stonewalling tactics. Against all the evidence, the Saudis had been maintaining that Khashoggi left the consulate building unharmed the same day that he arrived on October 2. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman even stated this version in a high-profile interview with Bloomberg on October 5.

This week it was reported that the Saudis were preparing to admit that Khashoggi was murdered by an unauthorized team of Saudi interrogators who flew to Istanbul to intercept him. It is claimed that the interrogation “went wrong” and resulted in his death.

It’s such a preposterous switch in the official narrative. After all the dissembling and lies up to now, Riyadh has no credibility. Also, why did the 15-man Saudi team reportedly arrive in Istanbul on two private jets connected to the Saudi monarchy, reportedly equipped with bone saws and forensic expertise, evidently for the purpose of disposing of Khashoggi’s body?

Turkish investigators say they will release a full report at the end of this week. Already they are disclosing that evidence they gathered this week confirms audio and videotapes that Khashoggi was murdered.

The Washington Post has reported US intelligence intercepts which show the Saudi leadership were involved in a plot to apprehend Khashoggi. In other words, the whole barbaric affair goes right to the top of the House of Saud.

Shamefully, however, what is emerging is a cover-up in spite of the graphic evidence. That cover-up began hours before the Turkish investigators arrived at the consulate on Monday evening, when Trump told US media he had spoken with Saudi King Salman. Trump said he believed the king’s denials of knowing anything about a premeditated crime. He also gave credence to the idea it could have been “rogue killers” who were responsible.

READ MORE: Police found evidence in Saudi consulate that Khashoggi was killed there – Turkish official to AP

Saudi media are now reporting that the 15-man team that flew from Riyadh to Istanbul will be questioned over the death. What this means is the hit squad are being made scapegoats and the Saudi rulers will be whitewashed of culpability.

The cover-up may not be easy, however. There is a lot more evidence to come out from Turkish and American intelligence on communications leading up to the abduction and murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Because of his media and policy establishment connections in the US, it can be expected that the whole affair will not be easily brushed aside. Also, US political and media opponents of Trump will use the matter as another means of attacking his presidency – albeit in this case, arguably, rightly so.

Still, it is doubtful this is a “turning point” in the US-Saudi alliance. Khashoggi has indeed strong advocates in Washington, and there is a growing movement among lawmakers disdainful of Saudi conduct with regard to the horrific war in Yemen.

But as the cover-up attempt by Trump shows there is a deep and inviolable strategic bond between the US and the oil-rich kingdom, going all the way back to when former president Franklin D Roosevelt formed his historic pact with the Saudi state founder King Abdul Aziz Al Saud in 1945.

The alliance goes way beyond merely supplying oil to the US, which has in fact declined in importance. It involves vital interests of maintaining the dollar as the global exchange currency for oil trade, massive annual purchases of American weapons, the Saudis funding CIA clandestine operations around the world, and the projection of US imperialist power across the geo-strategically critical Middle East.

Of course, the US should move to sanction Saudi Arabia over the Khashoggi killing – and much else besides – if its rhetoric about human rights had any substance. But as Trump’s unseemly spinning of Saudi cover-up indicates, the US-Saudi relationship is unlikely to change. It is inviolable for American power interests, and Saudi despotism is too important to fail, no matter what crimes are committed.

New BBC documentary ‘Dangerous Dynasty’ ignores the West’s role in destabilizing Syria

Whatever happened to objective film making? Why does everyone today feel that the film or program maker must take sides and not just show us things as they are?

These thoughts were uppermost in my mind when watching the first episode of the 72 Films production, ‘A Dangerous Dynasty’ last week.  

You could say the title was a bit of a giveaway. If you were expecting to see a balanced, intellectual analysis of Baathist rule in Syria, providing historical perspective, and putting the ‘House of Assad’ in some kind of regional context, you’d have been very disappointed.

We weren’t even two minutes in before a voice-over declared: “Many have wondered how this former eye doctor [Bashar Assad] and his British-born wife ended up running a regime of committing war crimes, of gassing their own people… Understand their saga [the Assads] and you will understand how their country now lies in ruins.”

Really? The ‘House of Assad’ had ruled Syria for over 40 years without the country being in ruins.

The descent into the abyss began in 2011. We can argue till the cows come home about ‘who fired first’, as anti-government protests swept the country, but even if we do blame the Syrian authorities for initiating the violence seven years ago, there’s no getting away from the fact that the conflict which developed was deliberately stoked by powers hostile to the Syrian Arab Republic.

These powers were desirous of either regime-change or keeping Syria permanently weak and divided for geo-strategic reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with concern for human rights.

To blame all the bloodshed on the ‘House of Assad’, as ‘A Dangerous Dynasty’ does, is ahistorical nonsense and ignores the pernicious role that the US, France, the UK, and their regional allies have played in destabilizing Syria and keeping the fires of war burning.

We have to ask ourselves how does this mild-mannered eye doctor end up killing hundreds of thousands of people,” one commentator says in ‘A Dangerous Dynasty’, as if Bashar, who had originally planned to devote his life to the noble cause of medicine,  just got up one morning and said “Right, now I’m going to kill hundreds of thousands of people.

The reality is that the Syrian president was faced with a foreign-backed attempt to destroy his country. He reacted with great force, but just look at how neighboring Israel responds when rockets are fired in from Gaza, or how the US responded after 9-11. Imagine how the White House would react if foreign-backed jihadists took control of parts of the US and beheaded captured US soldiers. Do we think the US president would have said to the ‘rebels’, “Hi guys! Let’s sit round the camp fire together and sing Kumbaya”?

The program had unpleasant undertones of Arabophobia, promoting the narrative that Arabs, and in particular Arab ‘dictators’ who don’t show sufficient subservience to Western elites, cannot be trusted.

It reminded me of an interview with Syria’s deputy ambassador to the UN and a US neocon on BBC’s Newsnight, in the lead-up to the Iraq War, which I wrote about for the Guardian here. 

While the neocon was treated with great deference, the Syrian representative was treated with withering contempt and “Why should we believe YOU?” condescension. ‘A Dangerous Dynasty’ had much the same tone. Sinister music was played whenever a family photograph of the Assads was shown to make it clear we understood that these were ‘the baddies’.

We were told that Bashar’s mother was “tough and manipulative.” His father Hafez “has extraordinary eyes that seem to look into your soul.” Assad Sr. was “an old fashioned dictator.” Female soldiers had to bite off the heads of snakes and male ones kill puppies to show their obedience. In one segment, we were told that Hafez al-Assad was like a crafty hamburger seller from the bazaar who removes the meat after you’ve paid your money. “He didn’t trust anybody… he lives in a world of conspiracy and paranoia. His whole worldview was conspiratorial,” an American envoy complained.

But didn’t Hafez had good reason not to trust anyone – least of all American governments? Just look at what the US did to Iraq and Libya. Gorbachev trusted the Americans and believed promises that there would be no NATO Drang nach Osten following the disbanding of the Warsaw Pact. Today, NATO troops are on Russia’s borders.

Arabophobia can also be seen in the surprise expressed that Bashar Assad, is “civilized” and “well-mannered” in his personal interactions. As if Arabs, can’t do ‘civilized’ and ‘well-mannered‘. 

Ironically, probably the most nuanced view in the whole program came from Sir John Sawers, the former head of MI6, who was a British diplomat in Syria in the 1980s.

It was a socialist military dictatorship, but actually there was a live-and-let-live approach. It was a tightly controlled society but one where Western diplomats could move around fairly freely. If you didn’t bother the Syrian regime they weren’t going to bother you,” Sawer said.

No one disputes that Hafez al-Assad was a ruthless leader, but while the words ‘regime’ and ‘dictator’ were repeated ad nauseam,  there was nothing in the program about the advances that Syria made under Assad and his son in the years 1970-2011. The way Christians and other religious minorities were protected by the secular government was ignored. Ditto Syria’s very generous support for the dispossessed and stateless Palestinians, which made them a target.

The book ‘Parting Shots’, published by the BBC, includes a letter written by Sir James Craig, British Ambassador to Syria in 1979, to UK Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington. Craig admits he doesn’t like the Baathists. But he also says “all I have said against them could be said against a hundred other government is this naughty world.” He then goes on: “And there is this, above all, that can be said for them: ever since they came to power, and long before, they have devoted a preponderant part of their energy to the cause of the Palestinians, to which they are called not only by self-interest but by the ties of kinship, neighbourliness and compassion.” Sir James said he found “a distinct spark of nobility” in their “obstinacy” on this issue. 

If we go back eight years, a much fairer picture of Syria was shown on the BBC in ‘Syrian School’.  

This was arguably one of the best documentary series ever shown on British television. It didn’t preach and it didn’t tell us what to think. It simply showed us what everyday life was like in Syria – the good and the bad.

Max Baring, who worked as director-cameraman on the program said: “Syria is a country where, from poetry to politics, you can have an intellectual debate. You can re-imagine the world there in a way that we seem to have lost in the West, where even the credit crunch hasn’t dented the orthodoxy of Liberal Capitalism, where ‘The X-Factor’ seems now to have become the cultural pinnacle.

You don’t have to be a diehard supporter of ‘House of Assad’ to acknowledge that life was (and is)  better under the ‘dynasty’ than under the medieval head-choppers of ISIS and other associated fundamentalist ‘rebels’, who the enemies of Baathist Syria seemed quite happy to support – either directly or indirectly. As my fellow Op-ed columnist John Wight correctly pointed out last week, “Not one Western journalist denouncing the Syrian government would have dared to set foot within so much of an inch of militant-held territory, knowing that if they did they would be peremptorily abducted, tortured and slaughtered.

Shamefully, it’s “the Syrian regime” that ‘Dangerous Dynasty’ blames for the rise of hardcore jihadist terrorism. The neo-con endless war lobby, who set the Middle East on fire, gets a free pass.

The second episode of the hatchet job will be shown this Tuesday. I think I’ll take a bath (no pun intended), instead. Looking further ahead, I’ve an idea (which I’ll give them for just £10K), for the program makers for their next series. How about doing one about another father and son, who both launch wars in successive decades against the same country? The father, who was a millionaire, was director of his country’s intelligence services. The son sold his illegal war on a pack of false claims about a country possessing weapons it didn’t have, with the invasion leading to a million deaths and a refugee crisis of Biblical proportions.

‘Junior’ also invaded another country where conflict is still raging today, and under the pretext of fighting a ‘War on Terror’ introduced a surveillance state and established a detention camp where people were held indefinitely without trial. The title of the series: ‘Dangerous Dynasty: The House of Bush’.

Who Doesn’t Love Identity Politics?

The Ugly Truth

POLITICS ELECTIONS

THE UNZ REVIEW – Why do we love identity politics? We love them for many different reasons.

The ruling classes love identity politics because they keep the working classes focused on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and so on, and not on the fact that they (i.e., the working classes) are, essentially, glorified indentured servants, who will spend the majority of their sentient existences laboring to benefit a ruling elite that would gladly butcher their entire families and sell their livers to hepatitic Saudi princes if they could get away with it. Dividing the working classes up into sub-groups according to race, ethnicity, and so on, and then pitting these sub-groups against each other, is extremely important to the ruling classes, who are, let’s remember, a tiny minority of intelligent but physically vulnerable parasites controlling the lives of the vast majority of human beings on the planet Earth, primarily…
