Obama’s many broken promises in the Middle East.

9 02 2011

When President Obama ran for office, America and the world looked for and prayed for change, a change that never came at least to the Middle East. It did not come to Iraq, did not come to Afghanistan, and certainly did not come to the Middle East conflict.  President Obama’s speech in Cairo was full of promise and hope, a promise that remained unfulfilled and a hope that vanished quickly.  Obama’s” wishy washy” management of Egypt “people’s revolution” showed the Arab and Muslim world that America is America, the world change but America will not change.

Mr. Mahmoud Abbas, what is next?

8 12 2010

President Mahmoud Abbas, whose elected term expired more than couple of years ago declared on a recent visit to Athens “ the peace process is in dire crises”. It seems the brilliant team around him failed to tell him this truth. The peace process was in crises from the day Oslo was signed by Mahmoud Abbas in Washington where he and the late Yasser Arafat committed the PLO as security and management contractor for the Israeli Occupation. Israel since the days of Rabin never looked to the PLO leadership as a “peace partner” but simply as a security and administrative contractor reporting to the Israeli High Commissioner sitting in Beit El not too far from Abbas’s office.

What and who are behind Islamophobia in America?

12 09 2010

To the naked eye, Islamophobia seems to be driven by small fringe group who are xenophobic about Islam and who see Islam and Muslims as the devil. But a further and more in-depth reading of Islamophobia confirm that the movement is more than a fringe group. It is a wide spread well organized Right Wing Republican and American Jewish Zionists who are out to get Barack Obama and undermine his presidency and his tenure as the first Black American in the White House.

Bibi made the case for Israel; Abbas failed to make the case for Palestine.

1 09 2010

For years marauding criminal and armed Jewish settlers have been terrorizing Palestinians villagers in and around Hebron, Jenin, Nablus, Ramallah, Tulkarem, Qalqillia among other places. These criminal gangs have engaged in cold blooded murder on almost daily basis, attacking and burning olive orchards, killing life stock and poisoning wells, yet not the Israeli leadership, certainly not the Palestinian leadership ever spoke up against this daily well organized and Israeli army protected campaign of terror.
