The latest voting in Britian whether to stay in the European Union and the rantings of Donald Trump about building walls to stop migration, confirms the credence that ethnic bigotry is increasing globally.
On Sunday June 19TH at the interfaith Ramadaan supper hosted at the Mosque in Gatesville, Premier Helen Zille said that the west was moving in the wrong direction as the concept of the nation state would not exist within the next 50 to 100 years.
Since I tentatively agree with her, it is ironic how political intrigue plays itself out, often against the people who plot and plan the ruin of others. Example, in truth it was former President George Bush senior and junior that was responsible for the Arab Spring and the chaos that continues to follow.
The Harks in the American admin that have been in governance since World War Two had no plan to allow a free democratic multicultural society to elect their own leaders in the Middle East or for that matter anywhere in the world. It was the same American Harks who established both Muammer Qaddaffi and Saddam Hussain decades ago. It was the progeny of the Harks who removed both men.
If they plotted the flood of refugees that followed is the question. If they did, then thinking people must consider what the Harks plan is for Europe that is overwhelmed with genuinely desperate refugees.
In1953 the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran Mohammad Mosaddegh was overthrown by the United States and United Kingdom. Mosaddegh had sought to audit Anglo-Iranian Oil Company a British corporation (now BP) and to limit the company’s control over Iranian reserves. Upon refusal to co-operate, the parliament voted to nationalize Iran’s oil industry and to expel foreign representatives.
A military government under General Zahedi was formed which allowed Mohammad-Rezā Shah Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran to rule as absolute monarch. He relied heavily on the United States support to hold on to power until his own overthrow in 1979. In August 2013, the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) admitted that it was in charge of both the planning and the execution of the coup, including the bribing of Iranian politicians, security and army officials, as well as coup propaganda.
The 1953 CIA coup against a democratically elected Iranian leader is directly responsible for the rise of political Islamic and the creation of the Islamic Republic of Iran. At the same time the USA lured Saddam Hussain their Middle East strongman, into a war with Ayatollah Khomeini and covertly armed both sides with weapons. Millions of people were displaced and killed. While the world was barred from trading with Iran, American/Israeli Marc Rich sold billions of dollars of Iranian oil even to Israel.
The point is that war, chaos and fleeing refugees will continue for another hundred years unless one generation takes a stand and says no-more. We will not allow greedy, unethical, nefarious, godless politicians and business people to create and generate conflict so that a few can live the high life.
When ordinary people think deeply and stop electing ignorant thieves into governance and looks pass the fancy election campaigns and bullshit, then maybe our generation can be that generation who can begin to make genuine change that will benefit generations that will follow.
