Iron Fist Of Iranian Theocracy Slams Down!

The iron fist of the Iranian theocracy has slammed down its fist on anyone who dares to speak with members of the foreign press or have contacts with non-Iranian sources. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has made clear that any problems with the Iranian presidential elections stem from interference by the world media so the solution is to ban any contact with those who created the problems. The German newspaper, Der Spiegel, which had an interview with President Ahmadinjad before the elections is now termed a “Zionist newspaper” because it also interviewed Hossein Mousavi. There is scant doubt in the immediate Iran’s government can beat, imprison and even kill those who have defied the Supreme Leader and his ill advised support of Ahmadinejad. Khamenei still does not grasp the extent of what he has done to the Muslim religion and the power of clerics. He has besmirched his reputation as a “leader” among millions of Iranians, and he has opened the door for the Ahmadinejad military alliance to take complete control of the nation.

What will happen four years from now when Ahmadinejad’s term of office concludes? Will he go quietly into retirement from politics? Or, will he use the military to overthrow clerical rule and declare himself president for life? I am certain he will find something in the Koran to justify such action.

Sarkozy Tells Israel Get Rid Of Schmuck Lieberman!

French President Nicolas Sarkozy told visiting Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the best way to assist Israel in gaining its foreign policy objectives is to fire the racist mouth that roars nonsense, Avigdor Lieberman. Sarkozy said he ordinarily enjoyed meeting foreign ministers when they passed through Paris, but he had absolutely no interest in ever meeting Israel Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. He urged the Israel leader to reach out to former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and form a coalition government that would be able to lead Israel along the path of peace. The words of the French leader were merely those thought but rarely expressed by European leaders who regard Lieberman as ignorant, racist, and unable to conduct himself in a manner conducive to peace.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman was furious to learn what the French president said to the Israeli prime minister. “If the words attributed to the president of France are correct, the interference of a president of a respected state in matters of another democratic state is a grave intolerable thing.”

Of course, insulting Israeli Arabs and calling for their expulsion is simply Avigdor in his most democratic manner.

British White Racist Terrorist Was Ready To Kill

The media is prone to focus on “terrorists” who come from Muslim or Asian nations rather than dealing with home grown individuals who are ready to bomb and kill. The media employs expressions such as a “militant” or “racist” but rarely terms the individual as a “terrorist.”Neil Livingston, a British white skinned terrorist was arrested by chance at a railway station as he was preparing to unleash violence against those he termed as “non-British.” A spokesman for the police said “this man, who had strong, if not fanatical rightwing leanings and opinions, was on teh cusp of embarking on a campaign of terrorism against those he considered non-British.” He lived with his parents and used their home to develop a bomb making center which would serve to create bombs that he wanted to use against Muslims and other groups.

Mr. Livingston is an ordinary man. He was fired from jobs and had lacked steady employment. This undoubtedly made him seek to find explanations for his downward slide in the economy of the nation and what better answer than immigrants. Unfortunately, there are many Livingstons in the world and more on the way as the recession deepens.

Le Pen Daughter Leads Right Wing French Revival!

Fifty years ago while a student in Paris, a young right wing nationalist named Jean Marie-Le Pen, burst on the scene in a nation convulsed by the debacle in Vietnam and the outbreak of civil war in Algeria. His National Front Party has been around for over fifty years spouting an ultra-nationalist, anti-immigrant, anti-European, anti-semitic, and anti-Muslim rhetoric of hate and violence. The world wide recession has been a shot-in-the-arm for those who find a cause of economic decline such as the presence of immigrants. His daughter, Marine Le Pen, and her running mate topped the poll in Sunday’s municipal by-election in the depressed industrial area of northern France. Unless moderate and left wing parties can form a coalition to defeat Ms. Le Pen she might well win her party’s first town hall in years.

If all French parties of the center and left agree to cooperate they can defeat the voices of hate and division, but if they continue squabbling the National Front party will gain a foothold in the industrial area of France. Ironically, Marine Le Pen is viewed as the most moderate of the right wing leader’s daughter. Heck, she is even willing to support the right of abortion and wants to downplay racism.

A Celebration Too Soon Or Too Late?

People are crowding the streets of Iraqi cities waving flags and shooting fireworks into the sky to celebrate what Prime Minister Maliki terms “National Sovereignty Day.” Waleed al-Bahadili, a typical Iraqi citizen, told a reporter: “All of us are happy– Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds on this day. The Americans harmed and insulted us too much.” Iraqi forces assumed control of all major cities as Americans left to return to their bases. The question in the mind of the people of Iraq is can its government reduce violence and deal with al-Qaeda? The withdrawal is teh first step on the road home for American troops. The real question is will they board planes and ships to return home or will they board them to head north to Afghansitan?

Lingering in the background is the other issue-what happens if violence escalates in the coming months? Will the Maliki government ask Americans to return to the cities? What happens if Shiite-Sunni conflict escalates? And, what happens if Kurds take over major cities in their quest to control oil production?

There are fireworks in the sky. Will there be other fireworks in the sky in the days ahead?

Most Swedish Hate Crimes Are Racist In Nature

A report by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention concludes that over 70% of hate crimes stem from racial or xenophobic motives. About 72% were judged to have racial or xenophobic motives, 18% were related to sexual orientation and 10% dealt with anger toward religious groups. The most common form of hate crimes involve threats and harassment. The Council has noted a significant increase in hate crimes against Afro-Swedes and Roma immigrants. “We have seen in the police reports that these groups are particularly vulnerable.”

The Swedish report matches those emerging from east European areas such as the Czech Republic and Hungary. It is clear as Europe undergoes an historic shift in population that large segments of the populace are upset to witness the emergence of people having different skin color or religion becoming important in the economic sectors of society as well as constituting a future political power group.

Hugo Chavez Bellicose About Honduras Coup

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is engaged in never ceasing charges that America intervenes in the affairs of Latin American nations. However, on Sunday he placed Venezuelan troops on alert after his Honduran ally, President Manuel Zelaya was overthrown in a coup by members of the Honduras army. The Venezuelan ambassador was beaten by Honduras troops who were bent on getting rid of a leftist president. Chavez warned if Honduras troops entered his Honduras embassy “the military junta would be entering a defacto state of war.” He naturally accused the CIA of being involved in the overthrow of a leftist reform leader. Most probably, there might well be some validity to his charges, but in the meantime it is doubtful if Venezuela has the military capacity to launch on invasion of Honduras.

Who knows when the CIA is involved in overthrowing Latin American regimes except one would probably not lose much money if you bet on that possibility. It is now necessary for President Obama to conduct an internal investigation to ensure that no branch of the American government took part in the coup. The days of banana republics run by the US Marines have no place in the modern world.
