How Saudi Arabia is Sponsoring Religious Eugenics*

How Saudi Arabia is Sponsoring Religious Eugenics*

By Catherine Shakdam

Blanketed by its wealth and protected by political alliances, Saudi Arabia has covertly run and promoted a new movement in the Middle East: religious eugenics, under the false pretence of opposing the rise of Iran. From Syria to Bahrain and Yemen the evidence is overwhelming.

Earlier this August, the Red Cross added its voice to those of other humanitarian and rights groups in its condemnation of Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen, lifting the lid on Riyadh’s little house of horrors in southern Arabia.

In no uncertain terms Peter Maurer, the head of the international Red Cross told reporters he had seldom witnessed such degree of devastation. He said:

“Yemen after five months looks like Syria after five years … The images I have from Sanaa and Aden remind of what I have seen in Syria.”

He stressed:

“the firepower with which this war is fought on the ground and in the air is causing more suffering than in other societies, which are stronger and where infrastructures are better off and people are wealthier and have reserves and can escape.”

A country in ruins, Yemen is also a nation in permanent mourning, as every day its people are relentlessly slain – casualties of a violent and murderous colonial war – the latest victims of Riyadh’s expansionist military campaign in the Middle East.

According to official UNICEF tallies:

“close to 2,800 people have been killed and almost 13,000 people injured (including 279 children killed and 402 injured, respectively). An estimated 1 million people have been internally displaced (an increase of 122% since the crisis began), and some 400,000 people have sought protection in neighbouring countries.”

While such figures are horrifying, they fall short of the truth. Agencies on the ground have already said that well over 500 children have been killed in Saudi-led air raids, most specifically in northern Yemen, where the war has been most devastating and aggressive. On average, children account for a quarter of all deaths and casualties.

For those who have managed to find shelter, living conditions are catastrophic. With no water, no electricity, little food and no access to health facilities ten million children are at risk of disease and starvation – again, North Yemen has suffered the brunt of this crisis.

Never in its history has Yemen experienced such a degree of pain and utter despair. But while wars are generally ugly affairs since they require their fill of blood before the canons finally fall silent, Saudi Arabia’s campaign in Yemen is far from ordinary.

But not only that, Saudi Arabia’s foreign policy in the Middle East is betraying a disturbing and rather ominous covert agenda, one which resonates with ethnic engineering and religious eugenics.

And if so far few have connected the dots, their hands tied by Riyadh’s overbearing and overarching control on media outlets and the grand political narrative, it is high time we learn to recognize Al Saud’s campaign for what it really is: a concerted effort to cleanse the region of all religious minorities, beginning with Shia Islam, its self-appointed nemesis.

To put it in simple terms – under Saudi Arabia’ suffocating grip, religious minorities are dying a slow and painful death.

From Syria to Bahrain, the kingdom’s eugenics campaign threatens the region’s religious and ethnic patrimonies, in a fashion reminiscent of Nazi Germany, when Jews and Gypsies were labelled undesirables.

Saudi Arabia is now building 600 mile wall to keep dangerous people out. What a concept! #tcot#pjnet#FoxNewspic.twitter.com/u056SB7HxW

In an interview this April, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, Adel Al-Jubeir lifted the veil on Riyadh’s determination to carry through its agenda, no matter the price, no matter the impact. He asserted:

“This campaign is having a huge impact in Yemen and it is not over yet. For us failure is not an option. We will destroy the Houthis if they do not come to reason.”

If subtitles were running they would read – the Houthis will be destroyed because they represent a religious challenge to Wahhabism’s hegemony in the region. The Houthis, and the majority of all northerners in Yemen are Zaidis, a branch of Shia Islam.

Is it then a surprise that while South Yemen has benefited from humanitarian aid, North Yemen has witnessed a spike in violence, its seaports targeted to prevent food and medicine to be ferried in? Riyadh is quite simply profiling aid to carry out its religious cleansing, punishing millions for their rejection of Riyadh’s religion.

Saudi Arabia is an absolute theocracy, and as such its very raison d’ être is rooted within its violent and reactionary interpretation of Islam: Wahhabism, the ideology which inspired the likes of Al Qaeda and Islamic State. One of the main tenets of Wahhabism actually calls for the destruction of all religious sects, Islamic or otherwise. For Wahhabis there can be no greater glory than to massacre “apostates.”

And while Riyadh’s neo-eugenics movement has taken on different forms, operating under various denominations depending on the countries it has targeted, the underlying current has been the destruction of religious pluralism.

Let me ask you this: Is there a real difference between Manama’s campaign to strip Shia Bahrainis from their nationality because the House of Al Khalifa seeks to eliminate all political and religious competition, and Islamic State’s murderous rampage against religious minorities in Iraq and Syria? And though Bahrain’s campaign might appear more “elegant” in that it is more covert and pernicious, the intent remains the same.

From the language used to the policies it has carried out in the Middle East, Riyadh has pushed the sectarian card, christening the resistance movement against its eugenics movement, the so-called Shia crescent threat.

The real threat here lies with Riyadh’s twisted crusade and sickening sectarian agenda.

The Secret Agenda Behind the Venezuela-Guyana Conflict*

The Secret Agenda Behind the Venezuela-Guyana Conflict*

Isn’t it amazing how the U.S. feels it has a right  to what is on somebody elses land and it poses a threat to U.S. national security if they are deprived of that ‘right’.

By Eva Golinger

It all began in 1835 when the British Empire sent a German-born naturalist and explorer to conduct geographical research in the South American territory it had colonized and named British Guiana. In the course of his explorations, a map was drawn that well-exceeded the original western boundary first occupied by the Dutch and later passed to British control. Sparking the interest of the Empire’s desire to expand its borders into the area west of the Essequibo River that was rich in gold, the British government commissioned the explorer to survey their territorial boundaries. What became known as the “Schomburgk Line”, named after the explorer, Robert Hermann Schomburgk, usurped a large portion of Venezuelan land, and provoked the beginning of a territorial dispute that has remained unresolved to this day.

In 1850, after decades of arguing over the boundary line dividing Venezuela from its colonized neighbour, both sides agreed not to occupy the disputed territory under further determinations could be made, but as the demand for gold and other natural resources grew in the region, the British again tried to claim the territory declaring the Schomburgk Line the frontier of British Guiana, in clear violation of the previous accord with Venezuela.

Ironically, Venezuela appealed to the United States government for help at the time, using the Monroe Doctrine as a justification to prevent further colonization by the British Empire in the hemisphere. US President Grover Cleveland eventually declared the matter of U.S. interest and forced Great Britain to sign a Treaty of Arbitration with Venezuela in Washington in 1897.

Two years later, the Arbitration Tribunal, which had no representatives from Venezuela but instead two arbitrators from the United States said to be acting in Venezuela’s interest, ruled in favour of Britain. Venezuela rejected the decision, alleging there had been political collusion and illegal pressures in favor of the other side. These claims were supported by a letter written by Severo Mallet-Prevost, the Official Secretary of the US/Venezuela delegation in the Arbitration Tribunal who revealed the President of the Tribunal, Friedrich Martens had pressured the arbitrators to decide in favor of Great Britain.

More than half a century went by until the dispute was re-introduced on the international stage, this time at the United Nations. Venezuela denounced the corruption that had led to the arbitrators decision in 1899 and reiterated its claim over the territory known as the “Essequibo”. In February 1966, at a meeting in Geneva, all parties to the conflict – Venezuela, British Guiana and Great Britain – signed the agreement to resolve the dispute over the border between Venezuela and British Guiana, known as the Treaty of Geneva. They agreed neither side would act on the disputed territory until they could resolve a definitive border, acceptable to all parties. Months later, in May 1966, Guyana achieved its independence from the United Kingdom, further complicating matters. On subsequent maps of Venezuela and Guyana, both countries claimed the territory as part of their sovereign land.

Despite minor disagreements since 1966, the dispute did not become the source of escalating regional tensions until 2015, when a large oil discovery was made by Exxon right smack in the middle of the Essequibo, and claimed by Guyana.

Oil

The Cooperative Republic of Guyana is the second poorest country in the Caribbean, only surpassing desolate Haiti in per capita income. The country’s main economic activity is agriculture, specifically rice and sugar production, which account for over 30% of export income. Despite being surrounded by vast oil and gas reserves in neighbouring Venezuela, which has the largest oil reserves on the planet in its Orinoco River Basin, and nearby Trinidad and Tobago, up until recently Guyana had no known oil reserves within its territorial boundaries.

Enter Exxon Mobil, one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, and a declared enemy of Venezuela. Until 2007, Exxon had a significant investment through its Cerro Negro Project in Venezuela’s Orinoco River Basin. Initially, U.S. oil and geological experts had classified the oil-based substance found in mass quantities in that area to be bitumen, a thick black tar-like asphalt, therefore rendering it not subject to the 1976 Hydrocarbons Law in Venezuela that nationalized oil and gas reserves. After President Hugo Chavez suspected the area actually contained huge oil reserves, he had his own research done and was proved right: the Orinoco River Basin was certified with over 300 billion barrels of heavy-crude petroleum.

On May 1, 2007, Chavez officially declared all hydrocarbons in that region subject to the prior nationalization laws, legally binding any foreign companies operating there to engage in joint-ventures with the Venezuelan public oil company, PDVSA. The law required a minimum of 51% ownership by the Venezuelan state, with a maximum of 49% for foreign companies. Only two companies refused to cooperate with the new laws. Both were from the United States: ConocoPhillips and ExxonMobil. Both sued Venezuela over the nationalizations.

ConocoPhillips’ claim was significantly smaller than Exxon’s, which demanded over $18 billion for the expropriation. Venezuela offered market value and the case went to an international arbitration tribunal that eventually ordered the Venezuelan government to pay Exxon $1.6 billion, a mere fraction of what the US oil giant had expected.

In an apparent act of revenge, Exxon found a way to get Venezuela’s oil without following Venezuela’s rules, albeit through illegal and potentially dangerous channels.

Exxon-U.S. Agenda

As the Obama administration was amping up hostility against Venezuela, declaring it via Executive Decree an “unusual and extraordinary threat to U.S. national security” and imposing potentially vast-reaching sanctions on government officials, Exxon was making a deal with Guyana to explore oil deposits in the disputed Essequibo territory.

In May 2015, just as Guyana was swearing in a new president, the conservative military officer David Granger, a close U.S. ally, Exxon was making a huge discovery in the Atlantic Ocean near the Venezuelan coast. According to reports, the deposits found by Exxon in the ’Liza-1 well’ hold over 700 million barrels of oil, worth about $40 billion today. The find could be a major game changer for Guyana, representing more than 12 times its current economic input, that is, if the oil actually belonged to Guyana instead of Venezuela.

On January 26, 2015, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden hosted the first Caribbean Energy Security Initiative, bringing heads of state and high-level officials from Caribbean nations together with multinational executives in Washington. The stated goal of the new initiative is to help Caribbean nations “create the conditions to attract private-sector investment”, but Biden made the true objective clear when he declared, “…whether it’s the Ukraine or the Caribbean, no country should be able to use natural resources as a tool of coercion against any other country.”

Without mentioning it by name, Biden was referring to Venezuela and its PetroCaribe program that provides subsidized oil and gas to Caribbean nations at virtually no upfront cost. PetroCaribe has been fundamental in aiding development in the region during the past ten years since its creation. And clearly, its perceived as a threat to U.S. influence in the Caribbean, and an affront to traditional corporate exploitation of small, developing nations.

In addition to the Obama administration sanctions aimed at isolating Venezuela in the region and portraying it as a ‘failed state’, the Caribbean Energy Security Initiative takes a direct stab at Venezuela’s lifeline: oil.

In the U.S. Senate Report on the Department of State’s Foreign Operations Budget for 2016, $5,000,000.00 was recommended for “enhanced efforts to help Latin America and Caribbean countries achieve greater energy independence from Venezuela”. Falling oil prices have already done damage to Venezuela’s economy, but forcing it out of the regional oil trade would hurt even more.

The main conundrum of figuring out how to replace Venezuelan oil in PetroCaribe was resolved with the stroke of a pen by Guyana’s new president, a former instructor at the U.S. Army War College who made a secret trip to the United States just three days after taking office in May. Hours later, Exxon’s oil exploration rig, Deepwater Champion made its first major lucrative discovery in the large Stabroek Block in the disputed coastal territory.

The Venezuelan government warned Exxon to leave the area, citing its claim over the Essequibo territory and the ongoing dispute with Guyana subject to UN mediation. But Exxon paid no heed to Venezuela, following President Granger’s lead in openly defying the Geneva Agreement and Venezuela’s calls to solve the conflict through diplomacy, involving the UN Good Offices in the resolution of the centuries-old dispute.

UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon has pledged to send a commission to both Venezuela and Guyana to seek resolution for a problem that now, as Washington hoped, is dividing the region. President Maduro and his Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez have been making their case before regional leaders, encouraging other Caribbean nations to support their claim over the Essequibo, or at least approve the involvement of the UN to arbitrate the dispute. In the meantime, Guyana continues to aggressively push forward with Exxon to pursue what could become the largest oil theft in the Americas.

Christians Decry Israeli Restrictions on Holy Sites*

Instead of spending Easter week praying, we fight with Israeli soldiers, says former Palestinian minister.

A delegation of Palestinian Christians visiting South Africa has complained about Israeli discrimination that restricts them from accessing holy sites in Jerusalem during Christian holidays.

“From 2005, Israel has been denying us access to the holy city of Jerusalem to practice traditions that are 2,000 years old,” former Palestinian minister Hind Khoury told a gathering in Johannesburg Thursday night.

She said that Israel puts up check points every few meters during Easter week.

“Instead of spending Easter week praying, we fight with Israeli soldiers,” she said.

Khoury said that Israel has a policy of not allowing Palestinians to return to their cities once they have lived abroad for a long time.

“I was the ambassador to France, and after four years they told me you do not live here even though my husband was there and I have a house and children there,” she said.

Yusef Daher, executive secretary of the Jerusalem Inter-Church Centre, agrees with Khoury.

“My brother and his three daughters and wife went to the U.S. on a work permit for three years. But now he cannot come back to live in Jerusalem where his daughters and wife were born,” he said.

Daher said according to Israel law his family can only be allowed in as American citizens on a visitor’s visa not exceeding three months.

He said although his brother and family are not allowed to return to their place of birth, Israel can bring in thousands of Jews from different parts of the world and gives them citizenship.

Daher said although there are tens of thousands of Palestinian Christians inside Palestine, Israel grants them few permits allowing them access holy sites in Easter.

“During Jewish holidays, Israel closes the whole of the West Bank and opens Jerusalem for Israeli Jews who come by walking, entering East Jerusalem without a single barrier,” he said.

An American Christian pastor based at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jerusalem told the same gathering that the Israel-Palestine conflict is not about religion but land and resources.

It is a conflict over land. It is a political conflict over resources. It is a political conflict over principles of self-determination and decolonization,” said Reverend Robert O. Smith, who currently serves as co-moderator of the Palestine-Israel Ecumenical Forum of the World Council of Churches.

30 Moroccan Jews Trained with the Israeli Army*

When we hear reports of foreign fighters/mercenaries etc fighting/captured in Iraq or Syria is this how it is facilitated?

The Moroccan National Working Group to Support Palestine yesterday warned against what it considered “a Zionist threat to Moroccan security”.

The group’s warning came in a statement in the wake of reports that a group of 30 Moroccan Jews travelled to Israel to take part in a 30-day preparatory programme organised by the Israeli army.

The Jerusalem Post newspaper said the programme aims to prepare the Moroccan Jewish for their eventual immigration to Israel and service in the ranks of the army.

“The group flew from Morocco to Israel via Rome, Italy, in July to participate in the summer programme. They will undergo physical and mental training organised by the Amichai pre-military academy, the Israeli Zionist Federation and the World Zionist Organisation (WZO),” it said.

In the statement, the Working Group warned:

The Moroccan national security, stability and unity are at serious risk.”

Group chairman, lawyer Khaled Sofiani said:

It is unreasonable that we raise awareness against Daesh cells, but not against Israeli Zionist army and its intelligence service.”

The former head of the Israeli Military Intelligence Directorate (Aman) Amos Yaldin said earlier that he has finished the establishment of a network of agents in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco and that the network is ready to start operating at any time.

The way you dress either shows respect or disrespect for other people. It’s not about vanity or conformity, but respect.

By Rich Cromwell

One of the great shames of my life is that about once per week, I wear shorts to work. I steadfastly refused to give in for as long as I could, but eventually the threat of heatstroke and the fact that I quickly find myself smelling as a real-life incarnation of a character from “Game of Thrones” forced me to go down this sartorial route. At least I only do so when working outside in the summer sun.

Alas, none of this matters. It remains deplorable. I feel the shame of my ancestors permeating the sweltering heat. I remember stories of my father—forced to wear shorts always and for every occasion till he became a young man of proper age—and how he refused anything but pants for years afterward. I sense the spirit of Fran Lebowitz prematurely haunting me. As Stephen Green, aka @VodkaPundit, explains:

“Men wear long pants, except in the pool, on the beach, or while playing tennis. (Olympians, athletes excepted.)”

If only Christopher Ingraham at the Washington Post were similarly haunted. If you’re a man, you probably know how stifling and uncomfortable this outfit is. Particularly in the summer, when the mercury tops 90 degrees. And because modern office thermostats are set to accommodate male attire it means that women — wearing seasonally-appropriate clothes like skirts and dresses in the summer — are bringing blankets and snuggies to work to fight the cold. Ahh yes, the unseen power of the office thermostat, the tyranny of temperature. Why, it’s almost as oppressive as grilling. At least Ingraham didn’t go all in on the abomination that are short suits, a look only acceptable on Angus Young and even then one that is somewhat questionable. Of course, Ingraham also mentions “putting on the same khaki pants” every day, so he’s probably not going to be featured on the Sartorialist anytime soon when it comes to his take on business casual attire. Sure, khakis have their place, but they are not panacea.

Due Credit, Not Stored in Cargo Pockets

I do have to give the man credit for putting a creative spin on his ensemble and for the rules he offers at the end of the article. His flat-front shorts, linen shirt, and loafers without socks are solid. For a pool party or trip to the beach, that is. For a casual event sure to be replete with alcohol and sweltering heat. His admonitions to never wear cargo shorts or flip flops are also absolutely correct.

But he’s missing the big picture. In the words of John Davidson,

We’ve lost any concept that the way you dress either shows respect or disrespect for other people. It’s not about vanity or conformity, but respect.”

Damn straight, Brother Davidson. This isn’t about you, mildly uncomfortably warm man in the office. Stop thinking the world revolves around you and the amount of heat being trapped in the vicinity of your lower brain. No, this decision is about the people you encounter, about showing them respect. For if you don’t show them some, then they cannot return the sentiment.

As Fran Lebowitz said,

“Men never wore shorts when I was young. There are few things I would rather see less, to tell you the truth. I’d just as soon see someone coming toward me with a hand grenade.”

If you’re approaching your coworkers in shorts (or your boss asking for a raise or a promotion!), you’re approaching them with a very visible hand grenade, at least if you aren’t careful in how you position your legs when you sit. Granted, Lebowitz’s own style is…interesting. It matters not. Her opinion on shorts, much as her position on capes, is absolutely correct.

Real Men Aren’t Afraid of Shrapnel

But Adam is wrong about most everything except bike helmets for young kids, so we can ignore him while pointing out those men were just asking for rocks, hand grenade shrapnel, and other detritus to be buried deep into their flesh. Sure, chicks dig scars and those soldiers were slightly beating the heat, but they weren’t playing the long game. A strong offense is a good defense and lowering the portcullis against rocks, hand grenade shrapnel, and sundry other detritus is a key aspect of a good defense. Plus no one wants to lose the opportunity to capture glory because of a mere flesh wound.

Drive the Lane

Granted, as @VodkaPundit mentioned, there are exceptions. An old school NBA game is one. Back in the glory days of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, it was wise to scare the bejesus out of your opponent with a hand grenade when driving the lane. Notice the distance with which Abdul-Jabbar was working. No one could get between his balls and where he was going with them, that is, it. That was hugely advantageous. Alas, it is 2015 and you are not Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, so that excuse falls flatter than a ball in Tom Brady’s clutches.

Air travel is another argument against being well-dressed in all situations. As a friend, who shall remain nameless despite his lack of innocence, observed:

“I’m not about to dress up just to get forcibly fingerbanged in a cancer machine by a high school dropout with a badge, which is just foreplay for getting crammed into a seat with no leg room next to someone’s monstrous Aunt Sally whose sweaty arm fat is taking up 200 percent of the arm rest and half of my seat. BUT I DIGRESS.”

Modern air travel is a particularly horrible time to be dressed well, particularly as you have to strip down to you bones (phrasing) for the backscatter nudity machine before taking your place amongst the unwashed masses traveling for a family vacation and who are wholly unaware what your ear-buds and book are signaling.

The Better You Dress, the Worse You Can Behave

But, despite those truths, here’s the thing: The office is neither the wild courts of Abdul-Jabbar’s day nor the awfulness of the modern airplane. Instead, it is a place in which dominance reigns supreme, assuming HR isn’t paying too much attention; a place where fortune favors the bold. It’s tempting to think that the bold man is the one who shows up in shorts and loafers. He is not. The bold man is the one who knows that there are myriad options at his disposal, from linen to seersucker to lighter-weight cottons. The bold man is the one who isn’t afraid to let them see him sweat. The bold man is the one who embraces being the center of attention not because of his slavish dedication to “comfort,” but because of his slavish dedication to decorum with a splash of swagger.

For this man is the one who can cause others to cower merely by his presence, for his ability to dress appropriately and ignore mild inconveniences such as the heat he endures between the car and the office door. He is the man who will be noticed not for the hand grenade he’s holding, ready to knee-cap his rivals in a rain of shrapnel, but for the tailoring of his pants, the details on his wingtips, and the pattern of his gingham shirt.

Shorts guy may be cool, he may not be oppressing the ladies with the thermostat, but he is not cool. He is not going to appeal to the retro sexist women in the office and ply them to do his bidding. That job rests with the man in pants. The man in the pants is the one for whom HR is just an abstraction and for whom political correctness is a concept to be trampled beneath his Goodyear welded soles. Man in pants is swinging his heat around with the force of 1,000 suns, despite the heat of the actual sun. He reigns supreme, sweat glistening on his brow, leaving foes in his wake. He is the man who knows if you’re going to go full Lenny Kravitz, you go full Lenny Kravitz and bust out of a pair of tailored trousers, not the basketball shorts your fellow air travelers were sporting. Accept no substitutes and offer no apologies. For you are the man of the office, it is your thermostat, and you damn sure better use it.

People who oppose Planned Parenthood’s practice of selling organs and body parts from the unborn children whose lives they end showed up at 320 of the abortion corporation’s facilities across the country on Saturday. Despite the newsiness and far-reaching national nature of the protest action, media coverage was extremely sparse. Here is what just one of the nearly 320 Planned Parenthood protests looked like.

The crowd pictured here, which had more than 850 people in it, spread across three streets and across intersections at the clinic in Falls Church, Virginia. No mainstream reporters were at the protest, despite hundreds of political and cultural reporters working nearby.
