روبرت فيسك: السلطان «أردوغان» يبتز أوروبا لترحيل الأكراد

الرئيس التركي رجب طيب أردوغان

لماذا يتعجل سلطان تركيا حصول شعبه على حق دخول الاتحاد الأوروبي دون تأشيرة؟ وخَطب الأسبوع الماضي قائلا إنه إذا لم يقفز الاتحاد الأوروبي إلى خانة التوقيع، سيفسد البرلمان التركي الصفقة برمتها، وكان هذا تلميحا بأنه سيترك هذا الجيش من اللاجئين العرب يبحرون مرة أخرى عبر بحر إيجه لليونان. أين الـ3 مليارات يورو التي وُعدت بها تركيا؟
ومع ذلك، سأل قليل من الأوروبيين عما إذا كان هذا الأمر المتعلق بالتأشيرة والسفر له علاقة بمجموعة معينة من الشعب التركي: الأكراد.

الأوروبيون، الذين يشاركون في حملة واسعة من الرشوة لوقف جحافل الفقراء الشرق أوسطيين الذين يصلون إلى أراضيهم، أهدروا رغبة «أردوغان» في الحفاظ على قوانينه الوحشية لمكافحة الإرهاب. أنجيلا ميركل التي وضعت هذه الصفقة الفظيعة لتجنب تكرار ما حدث لها العام الماضي، توارت بعيدا في الخلفية.

عدد من وزراء خارجية منطقة الشرق الأوسط (مع استبعاد السوريين نظرا لأنهم حالة خاصة) يعتبرون أن السلطان «أردوغان» يسعى بهذه الصفقة إلي توفير حل لأكبر مشاكله الداخلية، خاصة في المنطقة الجنوبية الشرقية من البلاد، التي يمثل فيها الأكراد غالبية السكان، من خلال تشجيعه لـ16 مليون مواطن كردي على الاستفادة من السفر للاتحاد الأوروبي بدون تأشيرة.

«هل تعتقدون أن أردوغان يتوقع أن يتزاحم شعبه على أوروبا لأنهم يريدون التسوق في باريس مثلا؟».. سؤال وجهه دبلوماسي عربي مقيم في بيروت، بروح حزينة وسلبية.

بالطبع، يود السلطان الانضمام إلي الاتحاد الأوروبي، لأنه يريد في الأساس الحصول على 3 مليارات يورو، ويعتزم الاحتفاظ بسلطاته الديكتاتورية المتزايدة. والعمال الضيوف الأتراك كانوا في أوروبا لعقود من الزمن.

لكن الشتات الكردي المتزايد في «شنجن أوروبا»، ربما أكثر من 1.5 مليون شخص، سيزداد بشكل كبير إذا انتهى بنزوح غالبية الأكراد في منطقة ديار بكر الفقيرة والمهمشة إلي ألمانيا والدنمارك والسويد للعيش هناك.

ولفهم ما يحدث، فإن الإمبراطورية العثمانية دمرت معظم سكانها المسيحيين في الإبادة الجماعية للأرمن، الذين وصل عددهم إلى مليون ونصف المليون شخص عام 1915، وشارك خلفاء أتاتورك في ذبح أكثر من 50 ألفا من الأكراد والعلويين بين 1937 و1938. ووسط حرب أخرى في كردستان تركيا، الناجمة عن رفض السلطان الحديث الالتزام بوقف إطلاق النار، أضاف حافزا لهجرة أخرى لغير الأتراك.. مرحبا بكم في الاتحاد الأوروبي.

نعم، أصبح مقدرا الآن أن يكون هناك مجرد «السفر بدون تأشيرة»، لكننا نعلم جميعا ماذا يعني ذلك. ونحن سنتحمل وصول مئات الآلاف من الأكراد حتى لا نرى وجوها هزيلة مرة أخرى أمام سلك الحدود.

التاريخ، بالطبع، يلعب حيلا غريبة وسط الجمر الذي لا يزال يتطاير دخانه الكثيف من عهد الإمبراطورية العثمانية القديمة. منذ 5 سنوات فقط، كنا نظن جميعا أن رجب طيب أردوغان الديمقراطي كان نموذجا للقيادة العربية في المستقبل. الرجل الذي أدار ظهره لـ«أتاتورك»، القدوة السابق لفقراء العالم العربي القديم، قد يكون مؤيدا للإخوان المسلمين، لكنه يؤمن بانتخابات حرة وصحافة حرة واقتصاد السوق وحملات واسعة النطاق لمكافحة الإرهاب، والسبب الأخير هو ما جعله الورقة الرابحة فورا في واشنطن ولندن وباريس، وكذلك وفر «الأهداف الناعمة» الأخرى، التي كانت مغطاة بقشرة من الاهتمام بحقوق الإنسان.

لكن الآن، السلطان القابع في قصره ذو الألف غرفة، المزودة بالكراسي الذهبية، يبدو أقرب للعثمانيين من أتاتورك، الرجل الذي كان من المفترض أنه يحتقره.

لا يزال السلطان يتحدث عن الشعارات، يتحدث عن إعادة إدخال اللغة العثمانية في الكتابة العربية، رغم أن الأرشيف العثماني عن الإبادة الجماعية للأرمن سيبقى مغلقا، يتحدث أيضا عن تشجيع السيدات على ارتداء الحجاب. لكن السلطان بدأ الآن يعمل كأنه الأب لشعبه.

من المفيد أن نتذكر أن دولة واحدة في أوروبا كانت تُكِن إعجابا هائلا لأتاتورك وأرضه الجديدة: ألمانيا النازية. وقد أشيد بالفوهرر التركي في الصحافة النازية لأسباب واضحة، إذ أعاد بلاده بعد الهزيمة من فرنسا وألمانيا في الحرب العالمية الأولي. كان يحكم دولة أطلق سراحها (من قبل العثمانيين) من أقلية مكروهة. كان يدير نظام الحزب الواحد إلي حد كبير، وقمع المعارضة بقسوة، وهمّش الدين.

لكن من هو «أردوغان» اليوم؟، الرجل الذي استأنف الحرب الكردية، والآن يريد ترحيلهم بدون تأشيرة سفر إلى أوروبا بسرعة؟ هل هو السلطان في قصره، سيد عظيم صاحب إمبراطورية خيالية، أم كما وصفه بشجاعة أحد الصحفيين الأتراك بأنه «طفل أتاتورك»؟ أنا لا أريد أن أقول إنه مزيج من الاثنين معا.

أعتقد أن «أردوغان» يحاول الجمع بين الأمرين. والد الأمة ومنظف الأرض، الأب الروحي والنموذج والقدوة لتركيا النقية، وإمبراطور الشرق الأوسط الذي يصل صوته من قصر الباب العالي مثل الرعد إلى قاعات ملوك الخليج.

وبالمناسبة، أين قرار الموافقة على السفر بدون تأشيرة إلى الاتحاد الأوروبي؟ أحضريها علي الفور أنجيلا. فأنت ستحصلين على الكثير من الأكراد في برلين، لكن إن وافقتِ أن تكوني المسؤولة عن اتفاقية الرشوة، فلا يمكن أن تشكي الآن من طلبات الجانب الآخر في الصفقة. وهذا ما يسمي «التدخل في الشؤون الداخلية لدولة ذات سيادة».

Stop Wahhabist School to Fight Terrorism

by mkleit

Terrorist attacks in Europe has caused a two-way incitement between Europeans and Muslims, which is a result that terrorist group ISIL is trying to reach as they’ve said after the Charlie Hebdo attacks on the 7th of January 2015: “compel the Crusaders (Europeans) to actively destroy the garrison themselves… Muslims in the West will quickly find themselves between one of two choices, they either apostatize… or they emigrate to the Islamic State and thereby escape persecution from the Crusader governments and citizens”.

The latest attacks on the Belgian capitol Brussels left 35 dead and 270 injured when suicide bombers hit Zaventem airport and Maalbeek metro station on Tuesday morning. Recent reports from Belgian media showed that people involved in the terrorist attacks are Muslims and of Arab background.

Mostly, Europeans would blame the millions of Muslims in Europe (and a lot of them have done so) for being the cause of religious incitement, and by far that’s sort of right, since there’s a minority of Muslims whose taking a big part of inciting against the “Crusaders”.

Wahhabism from Saudi Arabia hitting several nations

The Arab – Muslims whom are able to go to Europe and live there (aside of refugees and asylum seekers) can afford the living, where the biggest percentage comes from the GCC countries (Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and Emirates). And the ideology that all of these countries share (except Oman and partially Kuwait) is Wahhabism or Salafism. This sect is considered to be the most fanatic, extremist, and inciting amongt all Muslim sects – consider them as the KKK or the Nazis of Islam. This ideology is also the root of many terrorist groups, such as Al-Qaeda (Iraq, Syria, Morocco, Egypt, Afghanistan..) ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and Levant/ Syria and Iraq), Boko Haram (Nigeria), al Nusra Front (Jabhat al Nusra/ Syria), Ahrar al Sham (Syria), Jaysh al Islam (Syria), al Shabab(Somalia), Taliban (Afghanistan, Pakistan) etc…

One might think that abolishing ISIL, the most prominent terrorist group would save the world from terrorism, but no! Such an action wouldn’t do anything, because religious fanaticism is not bound by a group, it’s an idea, and ideas don’t die by bombs and bullets; ideas should be fought by ideas.

In their book, Global Terrorism and New Media, Philip Seib and Dana M. Janbek argue that terrorist groups are teaching younger generations (between 10 and 12 years old) their ideology through boot camps and schools that are in their area of control. This strategy elongates the group’s survival for a longer time. They would teach students how to be hate-filled fighters, as well as how much other sects and religious groups are “sinners and blasphemers”, most evidently the crusaders (Euro-Christians) and the Rawafids (Shiites Muslims, the second biggest sect in Islam). And among this, they would teach them that it’s okay to call them blasphemers and punish them for being from a different sect, where punishment varies from flogging to beheading and public execution.

These schools of thought are not solely found in areas of terrorist groups, but also in countries like Saudi Arabia. And they’re also expanding to European countries – under Saudi funding – such as France, Belgium, Germany, and Britain; since the mentioned countries have close relations with the Gulf state, as well as big Muslim communities.

When Europeans blame Muslims for this problem, they are partially correct, but they’re mistaken when they blame the refugees for causing the damage. Although some of the latter have took part in the battles in Syria, as many pictures show ex-fighters from extremist factions seeking refuge with the influx to Europe. But the problem is inside Europe itself, where it comes from these school and extremists Salafi-Wahhabi communities that are spreading fanaticism. Thus, they serve as a “shelter” and “sanctuary” for extremists coming from the MENA region and Asia, whether these countries are suffering from turmoil like Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Nigeria, or countries that serve as a holder for this thought like Saudi Arabia.

The only way to protect the EU, is to do what Tunisia has been recently doing by their campaign “tomorrow is better”, where they are re-educating inmates imprisoned for terrorist act by extracting the extremist thought from their heads and planting patriotic and moderate-religious ideology. As for the schools, the government is keeping an eagle’s eye on academic curricula, so that they would not contain topics of incitement and fanaticism.

If such procedures are made, alongside other educational and security ones, not only in  Europe but also in the countries that are being vastly effected by extremist thoughts like Lebanon, Syria, Pakistan, Iraq and others, we would gradually defeat extremist thoughts and potential terrorism, because it’s not fair nor right to blame millions of people for the acts of a few.

The Untold History of Hitler’s Reign

by mkleit

Though this video doesn’t represent all my ideas upon Adolf Hitler, but it speaks much of the untold story about him, the story that was hidden between the lines of history books written by the victors of WWII, whom are the US, Britain, France, and Russia. Because Hitler was able to give the Germans what none of them were able: a decent living.

It would trigger a thought that Germany, a country that was almost fully destroyed at WWI, suffering from socio-economic crises, would stand on its feet so quickly due to Hitler’s reign. The video shows how it was done.

Malleus Maleficarum; Hammer of the Witches

by mkleit

Malleus Maleficarum Book Cover

 

Definition:

Hammer of the Witches (latin: Malleus Maleficarum; German: Der Hexenhammer) is a guide for witch hunter written in 1484AD by two Dominican priests; Heinrich Kramer and James Sprenger, who were ordered by Pope Innocent the 13th to publish the book in order to locate and cease witchcraft.

 

 

Dualism Initiated The Hammer:

In the 11th and 12th century, Dualism sects spread out in Europe, while the Roman Catholic Church ordered the quick eradication for the heretics. Dualism is the believe that there are two gods constantly at war against each other, the good god of the New Testament defined by Jesus Christ, and the bad god in the Old Testament defined by satan.
The Catholic Church placed its full power and most of its wealth over Europe to abolish Dualism sects, reaching 1165AD, where Pope Innocent 3rd declared the Roman Catholic Church a state so that heresy would be considered as treason and thus heretics are punished by death.
For about two centuries, Dualism sects have been almost totally eradicated by 1320AD. The Church looked to abolish other threats, thus Pope Paul 22nd declared the arrest, torture, and execution of those who made “pacts with hell”, in other words, witches. The declaration has targeted rich wealthy women and educated ones as well.

 

People believed that rich and educated women were making pacts with the Devil for certain powers, known as witchcraft

 

The Pope’s Bully:

In 1484AD, there was a belief that witches and devil worshipers gathered in the German Hertz Mountains’ deserted fields to practice satanic rituals. Pope Innocent 13th issued a declaration called: Summis Desiderantes, which put in charge two Dominican monks, Heinrich Kramer and James Sprenger, to write a manual that explains how to locate, identify, persecute, and execute witches.

 

Content of the book:

[As it is from http://gerberink.hubpages.com/hub/Malleus-Maleficarum-Hammer-Against-Witches ]

“The first part treating of the three necessary concomitants of witchcraft, which are the devil, a witch and the permission of almighty God.”Malleus Maleficarum

 

The Malleus maleficarum consists of three parts. The first consisted of 18 questions that should be considered in the determination of whether someone was a witch or not:

 

1-      Whether the Belief that there are such Beings as Witches is so Essential a Part of the Catholic Faith that Obstinacy to maintain the Opposite Opinion manifestly savours of Heresy.

2-      If it be in Accordance with the Catholic Faith to maintain that in Order to bring about some Effect of Magic, the Devil must intimately co-operate with the Witch, or whether one without the other, that is to say, the Devil without the Witch, or conversely, could produce such an Effect.

3-      Whether Children can be Generated by Incubi and Succubi.

4-      By which Devils are the Operations of Incubus and Succubus Practised?

5-      What is the Source of the Increase of Works of Witchcraft? Whence comes it that the Practice of Witchcraft hath so notably increased?

6-      Concerning Witches who copulate with Devils. Why is it that Women are chiefly addicted to Evil superstitions?

7-      Whether Witches can Sway the Minds of Men to Love or Hatred.

13-   Herein is set forth the Question, concerning the Two Divine Permissions which God justly allows, namely, that the Devil, the Author or all Evil, should Sin, and that our First Parents should Fall, from which Origins the Works of Witches are justly suffered to take place.

14-   The Enormity of Witches is Considered, and it is shown that the Whole Matter should be rightly Set Forth and Declared.

15-   It is Shown that, on Account of the Sins of Witches, the Innocent are often Bewitched, yea, Sometimes even for their Own Sins.

16-   The Foregoing Truths are Set out in Particular, this by a Comparison of the Works of Witches with Other Baleful Superstitions.

17-   A Comparison of their Crimes under Fourteen Heads, with the Sins of the Devils of all and every Kind.

18-   Here follows the Method of Preaching against and Controverting Five Arguments of Laymen and Lewd Folk, which seem to be Variously Approved, that God does not Allow so Great Power to the Devil and Witches as is involved in the Performance of such Mighty Works of Witchcraft.

Part II of the Malleus Maleficarum consisted of “Treating on the methods by which the works of witchcraft are wrought and directed and how they may be successfully annulled and dissolved.”

6-      How Witches Impede and Prevent the Power of Procreation.

7-      How, as it were, they Deprive Man of his Virile Member.

8-      Of the Manner whereby they Change Men into the Shapes of Beasts.

9-      How Devils may enter the Human Body and the Head without doing any Hurt, when they cause such Metamorphosis by Means of Prestidigitation.

10-   Of the Method by which Devils through the Operations of Witches sometimes actually possess men.

11-   Of the Method by which they can Inflict Every Sort of Infirmity, generally Ills of the Graver Kind.

The death toll was estimated between 600000 and an excess of 9 million, since records were not kept in most cases. But the 250 years that followed the publishing of the book, via Gutenberg press, made it almost impossible to keep track of the death tolls as a result of the numerous printings of Malleus Maleficarum.

 

Witches were tortured, killed, and burnt alive on the stick as punishment for making a “pact with hell” which caused to the death of tens of thousands of women

Shocking Facts About Who’s Arming Human Rights Abusers [INFOGRAPHIC]

by mkleit

” Just six countries export a whopping 74 percent of the world’s weapons, with the US making up 35 percent of the global total. 

Treaties regulate the global trade of many products – evenbananas and dinosaur bones – but not guns and bullets. We need a strong Arms Trade Treaty that will stop tools of death from getting into the hands of people like Syria’s Assad and Sudan’s Bashir who continue to brutalize their people.

In July, UN member countries will debate the adoption of a global Arms Trade Treaty.  Take action to make sure they make the right decision— to keep weapons out of the wrong hands! ”

http://blog.amnestyusa.org/us/shocking-facts-about-whos-arming-human-rights-abusers-infographic/#comment-274136

Some facts showing who’s arming human rights abusers as on http://blog.amnestyusa.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/ATT-Infographic-US-version.jpg

The insight is amazing, the facts are shocking, and the numbers are sorrowful.
From what I know, operations “Desert Storm” and “Desert Shield” were the most profitable processes for the US government and Russia as well (from what was obvious). Over 200 billion dollars were gained during the US invasion for Iraqi territory from military weapons sales to the Iraqis, Saddam’s militia, as well as, the Afghan war.

Now the biggest conflict is the return of the Cold War, but this time it’s between the US and Iran. The procedure that is being conducted is that Russia supports Iran with arms and gives her a boost in technology, while as the US has been arming most of the countries that it has bases in, such as KSA, Kuwait, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Turkey.

It just came to my mind as well, the Cold War was all about technological and weaponry rivalry between the US and the ex-Soviet Union. Asian countries were all sold Euro-US and Soviet weapons. And after the fall of the Soviet Union, US arms were being sold to trigger conflicts between the Russians and the people of the Sheena zone, as well as Serbia and Sarajevo.
Human Rights is just an abstract idea to satisfy the people’s need for having a free world, nothing much. See the paradox in seeing the Human Rights central offices in the US.
