Egyptian President al-Sisi the Man in the Middle

 

Egyptian President, back when he was a mere general commanding the Egyptian military, saw the peoples distress was an exceedingly and rapidly worsening situation and understood their protests where they were risking life and limb, against the crushing and oppressive governance of the Muslim Brotherhood and acted replacing the Muslim Brotherhood and returning them to their banned and criminal status so well deserved, contrary to the beliefs and hopes of United States President Barack Obama, which is the greatest verification of walking the correct track as ever existed. The overwhelming election victory was won by the General, where he risked all as he had by removing his uniform and surrendering his privileged rank and status as General of the Armies in order to run for the Presidency, where he has proven the faith placed in him by the people. He has started reforms both economic and political which will further empower the people as things progress, and there exists progress in Egypt, slow but steady progress. Perhaps the even paced progress is best as the Egyptian people have lived under dictatorial rule from the times of the pharaohs which has hopefully ended and President al-Sisi will prove with the ultimate test for any leader of a nation finally stepping out of oppressive rule, that President al-Sisi voluntarily leaves office and does not assume to be President for Life. President al-Sisi has chosen a difficult and challenging target for his life’s work moving forward, and should he succeed it will be a momentous step forward for much of mankind.

 

President al-Sisi has throughout his career shown a propensity to challenge the status quo when and where he has felt was required. His new and apparent life’s challenge, and by far his greatest, is to challenge the very structure of Islam and its supersessionism by which it denigrates all of humanity which does not follow the tenets of Islam, and not just Islam but each substructure in Islam, Sunni/Shiite being the best known but there are others even within these two largest such as al-Qaeda/Islamic State/Muslim Brotherhood subsets of Sunni each against the others. President al-Sisi did not take a shy road creeping forward making a hesitant statement here and another there always leaving himself an exit strategy whereby he would live to fight another day. No timidity from President al-Sisi as his coming out set of statements was punctuated with a bold red and flashing exclamation point as he took his Jihad straight to the heart of the opposition. Al-Sisi made his speech announcing his Jihad to be an inner fight within Islam to soften its outer sharp edges it uses to attack all that is not of Islam and either convert or kill all that they see as the others, those who reside in Dar al-Harb, which literally means ‘territory of war,’ and not within Dar al-Islam, which literally means ‘territory of Islam.’ President al-Sisi initially took his Jihad to al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt, on December 28, 2014 where he delivered a speech insisting that Islam was in need of a reformation if not a transformation in which it would be transformed into a more tolerant and accepting of other religions and those who were not Muslims which was an assault on extremist Muslims. He questioned on how it could be that 1.6 billion Muslims should murder 5.4 billion non-Muslims implying it was a ridiculous notion. This while in the first rows before him were the highest ranking Imams who teach and administrate at al-Azhar University where future Imams are instructed in that very notion and that of supremacist Islam and the requirement for Islam to be taken to the world and spread by all means even including by the sword as Muhammad had once done when he took Islamic sword to the Jews of Medina for refusing to accept him as their prophet. This was taking the fight to the heart of Islamism and to the very teachers and university where this view of a receptive form of Islam is a heresy for which al-Sisi could have been murdered on the spot for even questioning the supremacy and requirement that Islam become the one and only pure religion on Earth.

 

 

President al-Sisi initially Took his Jihad to al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt, Where on December 28, 2014 al-Sisi Delivered his Speech Insisting that Islam Was in Need of a Climactic Reformation if not a Transformation Redefining Jihad from External Violence To the Ongoing Internal Purification In the Eternal Search for Perfection

A crucial excerpt can be seen below which gives three crucial parts in his speech; he questions whether the 1.6 billion Muslims should stand against the 7 billion people of the Earth and be a threat that makes Muslims feared, that the Imams must change before Islam can be reformed, and lastly his direct challenge, which can be witnessed in his body language as he turns to look straight at the man of whom he speaks, challenging the Grand Sheik of al-Azhar University. This is one of the most influential and revered teachers, Imams, in all of Sunni Islam and held in respect for his knowledge of the Quran in its purest form by all Islam and as the one man who sets the framework by which thousands of Imams are trained and millions are influenced. When al-Sisi directly looking at the head of al-Azhar University respectfully addresses him as “Honorable Imam, you bear responsibility before Allah. The world in its entirety awaits your words, because the Islamic nation is being torn apart, destroyed, and is heading to perdition.” The words he chose were a serious accusation stating, “the Islamic nation is being torn apart, destroyed, and is heading to perdition.” President al-Sisi comes from and speaks for those Muslims who are good, obedient, fervent, religious, honorable, and believing Muslims who are members of a ‘religion of peace’ but are being instructed that they are deficient and poor excuses for Muslims because Islam demands violent Jihad, not simply being a good person. They are instead told a good Muslim is more than a respected and caring Muslim because a true follower of Islam goes in the way of Muhammad. They are told that Muslims must not emulate the Muhammad of Mecca as the Muhammad of Medina has destroyed, killed the Muhammad of Mecca and writ a new Muhammad by the acts of Medina which show the true path is one of conquest, of blood and violence. These moderate Muslims who do exist also know that when that 10%, 15% or even just 0.5% demand that they act as they are instructed, that minority has the majority vote of one holding a sword and having the willingness to use it, though today it is a rifle.

 

The same is true of the Muslims who would never on their own take another persons’ life but are threatened by that minority for whom such is no more difficult than praying five times a day and given equal weight in their version of Islam which originated from some Imam likely trained at al-Azhar University directly or indirectly, but through some twisted or direct trail their instruction came from the very Imams addressed by President al-Sisi.

 

 

 

 

Such a transformation had once before been attempted with initially great success but as is all too often the case, which had been done by one man becomes undone by another man. The country where Islam was disconnected from the governance of the nation was Turkey where after the fall of the Ottoman Empire a remnant of their holdings were left to form the nation of Turkey under the guidance and rule of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk who formed the Turkish Constitution leaving the military to be the guardians of liberties, freedoms, and a secular society where the State was to be protected from the ravings of religious zealots thus protecting the people from their own proclivities to fall for mesmeric religious zealots and desiring the world they weave as only accessible through transformative means which start with a national religion, this was the point that the military was to put on the brakes, remove the leader, declare new elections and make sure this person was not on the ballot ever, and even preferably, by removing their party from existence thus forcing the religious parties to reconstruct if they were unable to respect the secular nature of the government. The Turkish military had stepped in and performed admirably keeping the restraints on successive Muslim Brotherhood political parties which attempted to instill a national religion with them as the guardians of the purity of Islam and the ensuing application of Sharia as the law of the land. So, what went wrong? In one name, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the current successor of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk who has carefully since 2003 while holding the office of Prime Minister reaching the end of that position transferred most of its powers and a few more he personally required in order to cement his changes assigned to the Presidency which he then won election as the first President of Turkey, or should we just assign the term which is more applicable, Sultan of Turkey and rightfully the next Caliph. There are so many claiming that title it is becoming difficult to remember which are current and which have left this mortal coil, Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal and so many more even to include Syrian leader of an ever shrinking area Bashir al-Assad, any more takers, get your name in fast before ballots close.

 

As you can see from the list that there is a conspicuous name missing, other than Mahmoud Abbas who has likely given up his delusions of grandeur and instead turned to concentrate on remaining amongst the living, but Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi who might actually be the exact transformational Caliph the world could use right about now in history if human history is going to continue much further into the future. With the stealth invasion and Civilizational Jihad threatened by Islamic State, Hamas, Hezballah and Iran, and with just as likely some unannounced Jihadists being sent by the Wahabbists and al-Qaeda plus a plethora, a virtual cornucopia, of other possibilities; if we only take the energy to seek out the terrorists with human screening, the problem is too large for such a method of detection. But President Sisi is not to be dismissed as any shrinking violet as he was far from silent on matters as General of the Egyptian Army, though in that position his statements were general comments even some of which inferred his present path but always nonpolitical and never criticizing President Mubarak as he did not shy away from challenging Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt Morsi, the man he replaced. When they held the trial for Morsi the commentaries came from virtually every direction, the Muslim Brotherhood and their fellow travelers such as Hamas, other political groups looking to pile on and get their rational reasons that they did poorly in the initial election was due to the fixing of the election by the Muslim Brotherhood, never mind if they did not do all that much better in the second election. Conspicuous in his absence from piling on Morsi was al-Sisi whose campaign mostly pictured a nation in desperate need of an improved secular education, job training for those unemployed, protection of all Egyptians, equality for all Egyptians, an end to inter-religious criminal acts, an end to terrorism and bringing quiet and lawfulness to the Sinai, the one promise most obvious in its absence though the efforts have been obvious and strong. Will al-Sisi succeed in his efforts to transform Islam? The bets and all of Islam appears to be against him but he has a secret weapon, the common people who if shown a better path, one where they are able to provide a positive and viable future for their children even if it may be too late for themselves, then things could change at least in Egypt. We must remember that as Egypt is the most populous of the Arab Muslim States in the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa) and if things turn around and Egypt become the Shanghai of the Muslim world and they combine with other more progressive Muslim nations such as Azerbaijan, then perhaps together the nations of Islam which reject the idea of Jihad as the means of conquest but rather on self-improvement in order to perfect the world, an idea which may be familiar to many of our readers, then the Islamic world may have taken the initial steps to a reformation, perhaps a Illumination Showered as Light Ascending to Mecca and Muhammad (ISLAMM), or simply put, Islam as defined in Mecca, a return to the birthplace of Muhammad and his dreams.

The big news nobody is talking about is the great opportunity for the Arab Palestinian people in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) who reside in Area A and Area B to finally get a political voice the world has clamored for in their own elections. Israel might even be moved to permit those parts of Area C, the areas which according to the original intent of the Oslo Accords were visualized to belong to Israel in any final agreement, be granted the allowance to vote in any Palestinian elections. What many people are unaware of in the entire world outside the Arab and many parts of the Muslim world is that the Arab Palestinians have had their own autonomous region within Israel since the agreements of the Oslo Accords were signed. Despite the Arab Palestinian leadership, all of it including Fatah, the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades (the military arm of Fatah and the Arab Palestinian Authority) and technically even Hamas and Islamic Jihad as the vast majority, if not all, of their members are also Arab Palestinian. The problem comes with the dissolution of the Unity Government making those residing in Gaza technically not granted a vote as they have presumably returned to being under Hamas. Now if this was to be declared the vote which was supposed to have been held within six months of the formation of the Unity Government, then all Arab Palestinians from Area A, Area B and Gaza, and with Israeli discretion and permission for those residing in Area C might be permitted the vote providing the Arab Palestinians desired such sufficiently to have them so inquire such of Israel. One need remember that Abbas prevented such a vote as he was staring down the barrel of a rifle marked losing the election and falling to Hamas’ revenge. But now with the Unity Government dissolved and Abbas returned to his President for Life position and his needing a new Parliament, this would be the perfect time for him to hold actual elections and even allow the new Parliament to choose a Prime Minister while Abbas, as already noted, could retain his President for Life or could go all the way and show his confidence in the people to reelect him to the President of the Arab Palestinian Authority, a title he oft times uses the euphemism of Chairman likely to differentiate his being the head person in Fatah and the PLO as technically the Commander in Chief of the al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades. Oh, let us not rule out his newly granted title since the United Nations General Assembly and so many European and international agencies and government starting with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) having recognized the twenty-third Arab State, Abbas assumed the title of President of Palestine (perhaps one should ask him what the borders are and see how much of the globe he will claim along with all of Israel).

 

Getting all serious, recently former United States President and major Israel detractor and self-appointed inquisitor, James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, Jr., visited the Middle East, meaning made a pilgrimage to Ramallah to give the Arab Palestinian man for all positions, Mahmoud Abbas some additional political weight and recognition while also not missing the opportunity to lay yet another wreath at the tomb of Yasser Arafat. Arafat was one of the most admired of men to President Carter and terrorist extraordinaire as well as inventor of the plane hijacking, suicide bomber, car bomb and so many other constructive firsts plus being the first Egyptian citizen to claim the leadership of the Palestinian Liberation Organization in 1964, three years before there existed any occupied lands. Arafat also claimed to be the titular head of the Arab Palestinian people, a position he simply assumed without receiving any votes as his terrorist PLO operated from within Jordanian occupied Israel. His PLO terrorist entity claimed the remainder of Israel as their intended lands just as it remains to this day, lands west of the Jordan River. Just like Yasser Arafat, his second in command, Mahmoud Abbas, and the rest of his hand-picked and KGB trained assassins and terror masters, as only the best trained rabble of the world were chosen to manage and lead in the destruction of Israel, had as its main goal the elimination of the entire state of Israel and then incorporating it into Jordan as they had no desire to actually rule a state as this was not part of their training and repertoire as remains obvious to this day. This would include the disposition by unknown means of its Jewish population, also known as their final solution as it so closely resembled another madman’s ideas of a final solution when it came to Jews and others he despised and President Jimmy Carter is consistent in his regards for Israel as he laid out for the world to read in his infamous not quite best seller, actually nowhere even approaching such esteemed status, titled Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, available on Amazon.

 

What was absolutely amazing was that upon departing President Carter made a suggestion that I actually support. You can imagine my astonishment and even remorse that someday I would have to own-up to agreeing with arch anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semite former United States President Jimmy Carter, but such is the case and I am unable to make or even offer the faintest of denials. President Carter suggested that there be elections held for a new government as they had been denied that privilege since the elections in 2006 when they elected a Hamas majority Parliament which posted the writing on the wall that should Mahmoud Abbas allow elections for his position he would likely lose to Hamas’ Ismail Haniyeh, the titular head in Gaza. This has been hanging over Abbas’s head as his personal Sword of Damocles threatening to behead him immediately, if not sooner, should elections be held and he to lose and Hamas or any other Islamist group should replace Abbas. Despite this never being a subject Abbas would consider, former President Carter stated during a joint news conference with Abbas, “We hope that sometime we’ll see elections all over the Palestinian area and east Jerusalem and Gaza and also in the West Bank.” Obviously former President Carter more than likely did not pass this idea for announcing such a threat to Abbas with anybody from Mahmoud Abbas’s offices and may have just had it roll out of his mouth before he could realize what he was about to, nope, in the midst of, oh darn, already called for new Palestinian elections, wow, I guess senility has taken hold as President Carter must have thought for a second, due to the surroundings and their obvious Middle Eastern flavor, that he was in Jerusalem and was calling for new Israeli elections to include Judea, Samaria, East Jerusalem and Gaza, simply remarkable. Actually, I believe that Jimmy Carter knew exactly where he was standing, who stood at the podium next to him, and still stated the need for Palestinians be granted their right to vote as stated in the Arab Palestinian Authority Charter and have been suspended since 2006. If nothing else, Jimmy Carter really does place a lot of faith in democratic elections as the solution to all of the world’s problems, even if he probably believes Israel prevents such elections world-wide.

 

The thing is with this statement by President Carter a month and a half ago and the dissolution of the Unity Government; this would be the perfect time for the world, especially the Europeans and President Obama, to demand that the Arab Palestinians finally be granted their voting rights to decide who is to lead them going forward. They have, according to far too many leftist, the inalienable right to elect their representatives on the determined timetable as stated in their governing documents, in this case the Arab Palestinian Charter, without interference and in an observably free and independent system designed and implemented to permit a fair and honest accounting of the people’s will and the enacting of the governance they choose in such elections. Every time there is an Israeli election we hear the demands for the Palestinians to be granted their voting rights despite the obvious fact that they are not Israeli citizens. That claim would be paramount to demanding that all Mexicans residing in Mexico who have a family member living in the United States be permitted to vote in the United States elections as their relatives will be influenced by such an election and that might affect the amounts of money they could send home and alter their livelihood. The Arab Palestinians have their own autonomous region which the exception for international relations and defense of their borders from outside attack (a responsibility which falls to Israel and the IDF, the same IDF which also protects Israelis) and even pay taxes to the Arab Palestinian Authority and not to Israel as long as they work within their autonomous area boundaries of Area A and Area B in the contested area which Jordan renamed West Bank rejecting the historical names of Judea and Samaria as they were, their terminology at the time, too Jewish.

 

The only question I must scream out is, where are all those voices, all those European political entities, all those NGOs, the United Nations and its entourage of alphabet agencies, President Obama and the State Department, the Non-Aligned Nations, the Arab League, the Saudi Royal Family, the Iranians and especially their Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Egyptian President Sisi, and all those human rights groups who with malicious and knowing guileful deceit demand Palestinians vote or is that demand reserved only when Israel holds elections to form a new government and never ever to be uttered when the Palestinian virtual dictator and obvious President for Life Mahmoud Abbas, a.k.a. Abu Mazen, known as his name de guerre, would necessarily risk his position which he has refused to chance since 2005 when assuming the role after the death of Yasser Arafat and not stood for election in any of the elections years following where perhaps the 2006 elections might have been premature, such does not apply to 2009, 2012 and, strangely enough, coincidently 2015 otherwise known as right now! I want to hear the voices of all those otherwise hypocritical Israel bashers who have demanded the Palestinian Arabs be permitted to vote, well, that time is right now and there will probably never be a better timed dissolution of the Arab Palestinian governance and thus perfect timing for elections to be held possibly as early as September and definitely before December 24 of 2015 as a celebration of all the wonders the Prophet gave the Muslim people and the celebration of his birthday this year. What could be a better way to celebrate the birth of the prophet of Islam than to hold elections for the new government of, for and chosen by the people.

 

What do you say Mr. Abbas, how about holding elections at least for the Parliament even if you are too timid and unsure of your position and popularity, or even acceptance by the people you claim to speak for, allow them this once to speak themselves. The world will be a better place after such an election as there will be a definitive line between Israel and the Hamas governance which would finally and irrevocable unite Judea and Samaria with Gaza and then Israel could demand that Hamas prove their ability to run the territories already autonomous and under their complete and unfettered control, rule well and we can discuss a state, use the position as a rocket launching platform which can hardly ever miss striking some target, even if they would almost all be civilian targets, then I believe you know what follows. I feel pretty sure you’re being granted uncontested rule over the Arab Palestinian areas would be the golden opportunity to have that state everybody else claims erroneously that your desire. You and I, we both know fully well what it is you desire as you wrote the charter and we both have read your charter thousands of times looking for the right key, the correct combination of concessions which would satiate your lusts for what might be a lasting victory but we both know what your charter, the Hamas Charter calls for and it is not all that different from the ISIS Charter, is it. We both know your standard, your stated slogan, you know, the part that goes, “Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Quran its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes.” In what might be best described as the preamble of the Charter it states, “Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors. (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, May Allah Pity his Soul).” Your Charter also appears to be centered on looking beyond just Israel but places a target on the entirety of the Jews. As your Charter states, “This is the Charter of the Islamic Resistance (Hamas) which will reveal its face, unveil its identity, state its position, clarify its purpose, discuss its hopes, call for support to its cause and reinforcement, and for joining its ranks. For our struggle against the Jews is extremely wide-ranging and grave, so much so that it will need all the loyal efforts we can wield, to be followed by further steps and reinforced by successive battalions from the multifarious Arab and Islamic world, until the enemies are defeated and Allah’s victory prevails.” You even chose to include a fairytale that is not included in the classic and original Quran but you probably could not resist its thoughts of merriment charging here and there in a great slaughter, that just had to be the reason for including the following quote, “The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: Oh Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree. (cited by al-Bukhari and Muslim).” Then again, the Jews are but your appetizer, not your main course, your main course is the Christians and after them the idolaters and every other human not yet forced to surrender to your will and Allah. You also deny the Quranic statement that the lands of the Hebrews were reserved to them and they are to be protected in their ownership and life in those lands when your charter claims trespass by the Jews settling in their recognized ancient lands as defined in the Quran but your charter claims otherwise when stating, “When our enemies usurp some Islamic lands, Jihad becomes a duty binding on all Muslims. In order to face the usurpation of Palestine by the Jews, we have no escape from raising the banner of Jihad.” The Hamas Charter seems overly preoccupied with the Jews and contains very little about the importance for the spiritual advancement of the Muslims within your fold. There is little contained in the Hamas Charter which departs from violence and threats of violence. It is as if there must be no end to the bloodletting until the last standing human can stand upon the pile of skulls and bones and only then declare to his world conquest, the world of one, alone and thus fated. Where are the calls for prayer and introspection and spiritual enlightenment and the finding of peace within oneself or is the only peace understood by Hamas the peace of the grave. Such a worship of a culture of death, destruction and eventually the sacrifice of the self for the cause of vengeance even against peoples who never harmed you or any of your brothers and sisters of Islam and merely wish to live their lives and die after a full and rich life where they hurt relatively few and helped those needing their helping hand and shown largely kindness and would greet you as a potential friend yet such friendship can never be as if anyone does not belong to Hamas and worship Allah as Hamas dictates such is to be performed, then they are infidel and must be slaughtered. What then after only the few thousand who are Hamas remain, do you then purge from within your ranks as your orgy of death must continue until not quite none remain, just the one whose manner of prayer and keeping with the final vengeance of the prophet be fulfilled, then that one can begin a life of what and for what, to be the last person standing? What a reward, what an empty reward.

When Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu gives his speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday March 3, 2015, he may actually be relating a scenario of best possible deal Iran might accept. President Barack Obama might be correct when he claims that he is attempting to have Iran accept the only deal they are willing to make and that pushing for anything more stringent would simply result in Iran balking and walking out without any deal and doing whatever they please. We should all take up what very well could be the newest slogan in the ever shifting political scene that instead of President Obama’s first campaign theme of Hope and Change, we are now looking at Hope and Pray. There is another problem in the Iran dealings which everybody has apparently ignored, what if Iran walks away from the negotiations and simply states that no deal no matter how generous is as good as no deal and Iran doing whatever their hearts desire. This should be a negotiating scenario with which the Israelis should be very used to as it is the exact negotiating scenario Israel had faced with Mahmoud Abbas and Yasser Arafat before him when attempting to negotiate an end to the Arab Israeli dispute. This is where their negotiations are a diversion and have nothing to do with the terms being so laboriously and tediously worked through down to the last detail, exactly as Secretary of State John Kerry described are currently being hashed out at the negotiations between the P5+1 (United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany) and the Iranians. According to Secretary of State Kerry the major framework of an agreement has been laid out and that the negotiations are proceeding on a series of minutia such as inspections schedules, types of centrifuges permitted, how many of the centrifuges would be permitted to be swapped out and replaced with superior and newer centrifuges as time and technology progress, size of the permissible Iranian stockpile of LEU (lowly enriched uranium) and a plethora of other very specific items. This tactic sounds exactly like the Arab negotiations such as the Camp David Summit negotiations which were held under the generous sponsorship of United States President William Jefferson Clinton and proceeded to where all the particulars and specifics of the deal had been negotiated and spelled out. Perhaps a recounting of these events will help.

 

They were meeting in Paris to formally complete the deal and hold the signing ceremony when the Israeli team headed by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak surprised Arab leader Yasser Arafat by simply accepting his presumed final objection in order to arrive at a signed agreement bringing an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict by establishing an Arab state consisting of the West Bank and Gaza with land exchanges on the final five percent of lands Israel was to retain from the West Bank made up of lands from within the Green Line, the sharing of Jerusalem, even a partial right of return, the final demand Arafat believed would be a poison pill the Israelis could not accept, but they did, and every other seeming dispute settled. Yasser Arafat found himself at a place he had thought he had shrewdly been able to avoid ever since the initial agreement in 1993 with the Oslo Accords and their stipulation for working towards a peace settlement. There everybody was sitting at the table, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak with the Israeli negotiators, Yasser Arafat and the Arab negotiators, President William Jefferson Clinton and Secretary of State Albright and the American facilitators on a beautiful Paris afternoon and a completed deal ready for the signatures making the deal final when Yasser Arafat refused to sign claiming the entire deal null and void and totally unacceptable to him, he then rose and stalked out of the negotiations to his car which was awaiting him outside. Immediately behind Arafat was a running Madeline Albright sounding as desperate as she did comical her short body attempting to catch Arafat while teetering on heeled shoes giving up more and more ground as she flung herself wildly down the hallway. That was the end of the Camp David Accords despite Taba Summit and every other final last ditch attempt by the Clinton Administration to forge a deal which would bring Arafat back to the table. He outright refused and never fully explained that his problem was that he would accept nothing less than the destruction of Israel replacing it with an Arab state and removal or slaughter of the Jews residing there, much the same as Abbas is currently working towards as there is not one stich of difference between Arafat and Abbas outside of their attire.

 

The filling in of the minutia is exactly the steps which are being laboriously worked through parsing every last terminology, checking the exact meaning of each and every word, even getting down to the punctuation so as not to miss even the slightest potential for some misunderstanding down the road which may lead to problems of vision as to whether or not the agreement was being fulfilled. This all takes time, inordinate amounts of time, copious amounts of time and this is as the Iranians desire as it also prevents any further real negotiating between the initial extension and the next deadline and meanwhile no actual progress has been achieved. Should one really desire to see what the final idea of an acceptable agreement would entail, all one need do is to research the statements and specifications defined by speeches, press releases and even Facebook and other social media postings made by the only person who actually holds power in Iran, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has made his position abundantly clear and despite it differing from nearly every statement made by President Hassan Rouhani, Parliamentary President Ali Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani, Foreign Minister and Chief Nuclear Negotiator Mohammad Javad Zarif or any of the other Iranian political elites. The Supreme Leader has stated in every possible manner that the sole item standing in the way of an agreement are the illogical and indefensible demands which the Western powers continue to stick to in an unprincipled and arrogant ignorance and denial of reality. He has repeatedly stated that it is the right and prerogative of Iran to continue to enrich uranium with as many centrifuges as they desire producing enriched uranium as they see fit for their purposes and the objections of other nations are irrelevant as Iran seeks only the peaceful use of nuclear power leaving nothing for the United States or the Europeans to object to. He has demanded that the Western powers simply realize the truths and respect Iranian independence and their rights as a nation which is their equal, possessing the right to exercise its rights just as any other nation does. The faster the United States and the Europeans relent from their ridiculous demands and show the proper respect of the Iranian people and their government then the faster an agreement which is in accord with the rights and privileges of the independent Iranian nation recognizing its dignities and right to proceed with their nuclear ambitions can be attained and signed. Unless Iran is given the same respect that the Western nations demand for themselves, the sooner the silliness of these talks can end and a serious debate can be held. Simply put, Iran is going to do what Iran wishes to do and the rest of the world can just sit back and observe, period.

 

The Iranian negotiators have agreed with Secretary of State Kerry on one very important point, an agreement and a point which the world would be very unwise in ignoring. They have both stated that there will be absolutely no need nor will there be any plan for further negotiations beyond the coming deadline which has been stated as being March 24, 2015. There are some who claim that technically the actual drop dead end to this round of talks is actually in June or even possibly July. That is of little comfort if the Iranians believe and are holding to the end of the debates being late March as they have claimed that that is their deadline and no extension will be considered. This means that we will very soon see exactly what almost two decades, should one count from the start of talks between the Europeans and Iran and not from the delayed entry of the United States, all has been an exercise in futility and has proceeded exactly as the Iranians had desired, simply stalling any other avenue such as that famous option which has constantly been right there on the center of the table never ever to be taken off of the table, let alone implemented, the military option. The United States view of ever making use of the military option has been made clear beyond the fact that President Obama has often informed the media, “I was elected to end wars, not to start them.” This has been carried to the point that on a number of occasions where Israel had been making preliminary arrangements for their utilizing of the military option, there were leaks suspected, and one even obviously, emanating from the White House which exploded any deals or arrangements coordinated by the Israelis. There was the leak that Israel had obtained overflight permission from the rulers of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, the leak of the leasing of two defunct military airfields from Azerbaijan and the United States stated position after Israel had arranged for overflight with Jordan that any unscheduled overflights of Iran would be intercepted by the United States and engaged and shot from the skies if such illegal flights were attempted. These leaks were all made known to the appropriate governments which would have made life very difficult for the nations involved with Israel forcing them to claim that all such information were completely false and that such cooperation with Israel could and would never ever be contemplated, let alone such agreement reached.

 

Meanwhile, the United States continues to lead the dancing troupe of diplomats from Europe all dancing to a tune skillfully orchestrated by the Iranian master manipulators all while making furious noise upon the world’s stage all signifying nothing. The next month will be spent with numerous State Department officials and specialists meeting in endless sessions with their Iranian counterparts going over every word, every spot of punctuation, researching countless thesauruses and dictionaries, translating terms between Farsi and English and even potentially Arabic just to make sure that everything means exactly what both sides think they mean and even potentially having the American side using a word repeatedly only to be countered by an Iranian claiming, “You keep using that word, I don’t think it means what you think it means.” There will be arguments, heated discourse, difficulties laboriously worked through and potentially even fists or even shoes slammed upon tabletops before stalking from the session. We have not had a good recorded footwear slammed on the tabletop since the fall of 1960, when in the midst of the debates at the United Nations concerning the Korean Crisis that Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev reportedly did exactly that, slammed his shoe atop the table during a session of the Security Council and then led the Russian contingency stomping from the room. This is what supposedly allowed the Security Council the opportunity to pass a resolution permitting military force against North Korea leading to the still unsettled Korean War. It is doubtful that the Iranians would pull such a stunt though it would be a form of ultimate insult as shoes are often thrown as a sign of great disrespect for the targeted individual, ask former President George W. Bush who received just such treatment at the hands of an infuriated Iraqi reporter. The main objective of the Iranians, which will eventually become evident, is to run out the clock without having reached a final wording of an agreement so as to facilitate their walking from the negotiations without any agreement and then either declaring their intent to remove themselves from the restraints of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) or to simply continue on to completing their preliminary nuclear weapons research and go on to manufacture nuclear weapons while continuing their research into larger, more powerful yet smaller nuclear devices as well as thermonuclear devices, often called hydrogen fusion devices, while never even bothering to formally depart from the NPT. The final piece which Iran has gained is ISIS and its threat to the Middle East, especially Saudi Arabia and Iraq. The Iranians are very likely to offer a grand deal to President Obama where they will provide the needed boots on the ground against ISIS providing the United States allow Iran a bundle of items in exchange. These include retaining the lands it recaptures from ISIS, allowing Iran to absorb the majority of Iraq and all of Syria and Lebanon, and allowing Iran complete freedom in the nuclear field as long as Iran also promises not to expose President Obama to any embarrassment by not revealing their nuclear arsenal’s existence until he has left office. After he has left office Iran would then be free to reveal their nuclear capability in a staggered manner in order to make it appear they had not gained their knowledge nor began assembling weaponized nuclear devices while President Obama was in office. All these promises would provide Obama with the cover he would require for his legacy which would include his preventing a nuclear Iran while bringing Iran back within the community of nations and reestablishing Iran-American relations. President Obama might even be permitted to reopen an American Embassy in Tehran. This may even be the best agreement that President Obama and the P5+1 might be able to accomplish as the alternative is an end to negotiations and leaving with their hands empty and less than nothing to show for all their endless efforts.

 

The end result will potentially be that President Obama will end up having no agreement and no prospect of an avenue to preventing the Iranians from the wholesale manufacturing of nuclear weapons and building a huge arsenal resulting in a Middle East nuclear weapons race which may very well result in some very nasty scenarios. What must be kept in mind is that Israel is far from the only nation sitting on the Iranian ‘do not send Christmas cards to list’ who instead might receive a nuclear device used as an EMP device exploding high over the center of the nation. The Iranians would love little more than to replace the Saudis from being the guardians of the Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina. Iran also had designs which are well on their way to fruition of incorporating much of Iraq as a province of the renewed Persian Empire simply renamed as the Iranian Empire. After Syria and Lebanon, Iran will be well on their way towards the reacquisition of the lands once controlled by the Persian Empire, about the only things missing from the Persian Empire would be Turkey, Jordan, Israel and a run through the Greek Islands after a very nasty and costly three days at the Pass of Thermopolis. Iran does not see the world through the same lens as does the Western nations. Iran looks at the Western nations as defunct, swimming in debt, morally corrupt, debaucherous, poorly ruled, lacking in direction and perched precariously just waiting to be nudged beyond the cusp and falling into a great chasm, a great abyss never to rise again. And who do the Iranians see as the successor to the Western Hegemony? Themselves, of course. They see themselves rolling across Europe in an easy conquest after subjugating the Middle East and slashing across Northern Africa unifying the entirety of the Muslim world placing themselves and Shia Islam as the preeminent force in all of Islam and as the subjugators of Sunniism. Their slicing across Europe would proceed with ease of effort as the United States would have been brought low after the EMP device was detonated high above St Louis or Kansas City. Once they had conquered Rome they would see that as having defeated all of Christendom, making their only remaining conquest to be Asia. Iran is seeking to conquer the world and they see nothing out in the world that could potentially pose any real or serious threat opposing such a conquest. They see the United States as a technological giant with a serious Achilles Heel, the complete and total reliance on that technology which requires electricity, great quantities of electricity, in order to feed that technology and without which the United States would be mortally wounded. They view Europe as simply waiting to be subjugated and they figure that the disarming of Europe after World War II and their continued military decline resulting from their emphasis on luxuries and frivolities and neglecting their military defense as their biggest weakness which has left them virtually defenseless.

 

The only remaining threat might be Israel which they have claimed is a one or two bomb nation which even with its nuclear capabilities still would not pose any serious threat to Islam as an entirety. Further, if the Iranians put off confronting Israel until they had conquered all the rest of the Middle East and potentially Northern Africa, then Israel would definitely not pose a threat to their entirety of conquest. The United States is a one or two bomb nation because they only need destroy the electrical grid and potentially a third and fourth bombs to take out New York City and Washington D.C. as that would wound America fatally in their financial and political hearts, especially if they struck when almost all of the political class is in the Capital building with the President as happened every January for the State of the Union Address. Should Iran partner initially with Russia, the Russians might realize too late that Iran has used them and had no plans on sparing them from their eventual subjugation under Islam. That leaves the two Asian heavyweights outside of Russia, namely China and India. Iran honestly regards themselves as the next hegemonic world power and sees nobody capable of standing in their way, a view the Western world should regard with great trepidations and respond potentially with great and furious force as anything less may leave the free world in a more serious predicament than they found themselves in when ignoring Winston Churchill and all the warnings he had laid out before them and refused the resistance through force he had demanded of them. The result was Dunkirk and almost the loss of the free world to Adolph Hitler. History does not repeat itself exactly the same each time but comes disguised as the past’s adopted cousin, something that acts similarly but is just different enough that it becomes difficult to detect. You know you have seen all this before but you are unable to draw the correct conclusion, sometimes that delay may make everything else too little too late.
