Dominant Social Theme: Beware of militant Islam. We fight against it to exhaustion and offer global governance in its place.
Free-Market Analysis: Some three weeks ago, we presented a Middle East analysis entitled "Western Elites Secretly Still Building Islam?" and since then we have been able to refine our perspective with the help of feedbackers and current events. But our conclusion really hasn't changed: Anglo-American elites are indeed attempting to destabilize the Middle East, creating a spectrum of national unity governments that must evolve in some cases into "militant" Islam. This too is apparently part of the plan – a fundamental dominant social theme – as an expanded Muslim scourge justifies further authoritarianism in the West and simultaneaously a necessity for ongoing military preparedness and even expansion.
The US military industrial complex is in trouble and needs enemies. China likely won't do as necessary commercial relations with the West militate against its perception as a world-class enemy. Also China is Westernizing in a way that radical Islam will not. Of course it took some doing to create modern, fundamentalist Islam: Saudi Arabia had to be funded and cosseted by the West for decades before Wahhabism finally emerged. Saudi Arabia exported it, along with Sharia law, and Pakistan – another state funded by the Anglosphere – refined it and taught its precepts at various madrassats, from which the Taliban emerged.
At every turn, one finds Western financing and cultivation of militant Islam. But it does not stop there. In both Europe and America, Muslims have been welcomed via assiduous cultivated political immigration policies and the result has been one of increasing friction, especially in Europe. Throughout the 20th century and into the 21st, this strange policy has been implemented and Islam has been implanted into the West.
And yet … against a backdrop of this tireless Islamic grafting, we suddenly see signs of de-cultivation. British Prime Minister David Cameron, for instance, just gave a speech at a security conference in Germany stating multiculturalism had "failed." According to press reports, the Prime Minister said "hands-off tolerance" had done nothing to stop the rise of Islamic extremism. And he added that Britain has "even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run counter to our values …
"Frankly, we need a lot less of the passive tolerance of recent years and much more active, muscular liberalism," the prime minister said, according to a BBC report. "Let's properly judge these [Islamic] organisations: Do they believe in universal human rights – including for women and people of other faiths? Do they believe in equality of all before the law? Do they believe in democracy and the right of people to elect their own government? Do they encourage integration or separatism? These are the sorts of questions we need to ask. Fail these tests and the presumption should be not to engage with organisations."
Cameron's remarks follow a similar statement by Germany's Angela Merkel last October on the same subject. She claimed in a speech that Islamic integration had "failed utterly." And last week, Merkel's home state of Hesse became the first German state to ban Muslim face veils for public sector workers. A poll last year showed 61 percent of Germans would welcome a burka ban. Now, according to some reports, a "backlash" is feared among Germany's 4.1 million Muslims.
Merkel's statements were positively tame compared to Germany's former central banker, Thilo Sarrazin, who wrote a book – Germany Does Away With Itself – that accused Muslims of not integrating and of being unintelligent. He claimed they had low Iqs and also that the steady influx of Muslims combined with a low German birthrate meant that Germany was "becoming more stupid." Muslim immigrants don't integrate as well as other immigrant groups across Europe, he argued.
Of course, Muslims are not the only stupid ones. Newsflavor.com recently informed us that the leader of the free-world, President Barack Obama is "Is Clueless. Totally Clueless." This information apparently comes courtesy of an email from a White House insider who claims the White House "was caught completely off guard [regarding Egyptian turmoil] despite indications they were informed of just such a scenario a number of times over the past year or so. … These are the situations where an American president can either rise to the occasion and show strength and wisdom or where they appear weak and uncertain. I don't need to explain to you what our current president did."
It is puzzling, however, that Obama would be surprised considering that the US (and thus the Anglosphere) was involved in planning the overthrow of Mubarak for years, according to credible reports. In an article, Whose Revolution Is It Anyway?, the Online Journal reminds us of a startling story we've already mentioned, one reporting in the UK Telegraph (based on WikiLeaks leaked diplomatic cables) that, "The American government secretly backed leading figures behind the Egyptian uprising who have been planning ‘regime change' for the past three years." You can see our analysis here:
Contemplate the larger pattern. The Anglosphere has built up militant Islam piece by piece throughout the 20th and 21st century. The current geographical configuration of Africa and the Middle East is the creation of the Anglosphere. Wahhabism is funded by Saudi Arabia, a creation of the Anglosphere. Pakistan and its madrassas are a creation of the Anglosphere. The radicalization of Islam has been achieved through wars waged by the Anglosphere against the very Islamic movements it has been responsible for setting in motion.
The Obama administration may be "clueless" but this is only a further illustration of how the Anglo-American axis apparently works. The forces set in motion are far larger than any individual political functionary, even one so putatively powerful as Barack Obama. In fact Obama's lack of insight – if it exists – into the current Middle East situation provides deniability, a kind of cover that the mainstream media can trumpet.
Seen from this perspective, the process of Islamic radicalization is neither surprising nor unexpected. It is part of a larger design that seems to be intended to pit the Western world against radicalized Islam. Even the purposeful introduction of Muslims into Europe and America has perhaps been calculated to inflate Western sentiment against Islam – a sentiment suddenly being given voice to by such world leaders as Angela Merkel and David Cameron.
Nothing happens in politics, we are informed, that is not purposeful – so President Franklin Delano Roosevelt explained (and he was certainly in a position to know). The final piece in the puzzle of what seems to be an assiduously cultivated long-term militarization of the Middle East is Israel itself. Israel, of course, is no coincidence either. The Anglosphere created Israel, funded it and protected it at great cost. Those at the very top of the hierarchy of the power elite actually constructed its Knesset and Supreme Court building free of charge. Israel is as much of creation of the Anglosphere as militant Islam.
It seems to us that more Islamic states – or influence at least – will soon be part of the political scene in the Middle East. The Islamic Brotherhood is said to be in talks with the Mubarak government and in Tunisia there is an emergent Muslim political presence as well. A variety of political solutions, from Westernized states (Arab emirates) to theocracies (Iran) will provide a new and more aggressive posture. Tensions between Israel and the Arab world will be ratcheted up. Jerusalem itself may well become an even bigger source of tensions and instability.
Those who read the headlines every day (and peer behind them) may come to believe the above is merely inevitable. But it seems to us it is not; it seems in fact a result of deliberate policies that have been applied at every turn by Western powers to create Middle Eastern and African instability and violence. (Even higher food prices are likely a cynical and deliberate policy.) As we believe the goal of the Anglosphere is world government, the idea of creating an ever-more troubled Middle East – one prone to instability and violence because of a lack of resources and the pain of price inflation – makes sense; globalism can then be offered, inevitably, as a solution to nationalism and religious animosity, perhaps after a long, (but somehow non-escalating) military conflict.
None of this is preordained, however. The Internet itself has revealed much of what the Anglo-American powers-that-be are apparently contemplating; and this knowledge is percolating among Arab youth. It is difficult to wage a new world war in the modern era given the availability of nuclear weapons. What is clear to us is that the Anglosphere is doing its best to create new tensions and new enemies domestically and overseas. The resultant impacts will include higher commodity and oil prices, increased instability throughout the world and perhaps less Westernization and Western-style "economic opportunity" in the Middle East.
The Internet's revelations regarding the manipulation of the Middle East by the Anglosphere are increasingly well-known to new Middle Eastern generations. The ongoing tumult in Egypt and elsewhere bears witness to their bravery and determination. This is an unexpected state of affairs and an entirely new challenge for the power elite, which manipulates nations and cultures in secrecy and by stealth. While plans for world government apparently go back decades if not centuries, the advent of new electronic communications may yet prove to be a grave obstacle to the fruition of elite ambitions. It may yet force the Anglo-American axis to take a step back and honest money – gold and silver – to continue to march forward.
