Reconstruction of Gaza?

Posted by melmogy at 10:53 PM
Becoming aware of one’s reality and surroundings, not only within ones arena, but also in and ‎around the world is vital and indispensable to a healthy future of any country.‎

Many leaders all over the world and through history have been trying to mask reality from their ‎people in an attempt to attain their own personal goals and ambitions.‎

Hence, raising awareness, as much as it is essential for dignity, freedom, and autonomy, is as ‎difficult to achieve, yet never impossible.‎

Muhammad Hasanain Haikal ‎ ‎, an Egyptian journalist, author, and politician, gave a talk on ‎television about the war on Gaza and the surrounding political back staging operations that took ‎place before, during and after. The following is a summary of his talk. ‎

The Arab world is on the brink of a new phase on the ground. It is in the throes of a very painful ‎phase, or one of transition, because the US and the West reached the conclusion that, it was no ‎more important that Arabs agree or object, or say yes or no, because they became highly ‎dispersed. Moreover, the most dangerous thing about this dispersion is that there is no longer a ‎party on the ground that could exist for negotiation.‎

In the midst of what was happening with the plans for the reconstruction of Gaza, there was a ‎visit by the European leaders to Israel, which was, at the time, a tantamount to save Israel from ‎the international claims seeking to put the Israelis on trial for what they have committed in Gaza. ‎The intent was to provide a sort of an “instrument of forgiveness” to Israel. ‎
‎ This came in response to Israel’s worry about voices calling to bring Israeli leaders to ‎prosecution, while others called for a trial by The International Criminal Court for the war crimes ‎committed in the Gaza Holocaust.‎

Mr. Haikal said that he was worried that all such preparations for the reconstruction of Gaza ‎would divert all attention to an entire and different arena in place of the political one dealing ‎with the Palestinian problem.‎

While former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, was being awarded a medal of honour by G. W. ‎Bush, Blair advised Bush to forget about the concept of spreading democracy among the Arab ‎countries. He further explained that the Arabs in the Middle East are far from understanding it, ‎not to mention accepting such concept because of their economic and social problems.‎

In the year 2006, there was an American planning set in place to get rid of Hamas (incidentally, ‎this was published in American newspaper). T. Blair requested from the Palestinian president ‎Mahmoud Abbas to work on the implementation of such plan. The failure of this plan caused ‎Israel to carry out the task of toppling Hamas itself, and to make the Palestinian arena filled with ‎emptiness.‎

At times, the US tempts us to pounce at that that we imagine is a risk to us, and when we ‎remove him from the scene, we become increasingly vulnerable.‎

Mr. Haikal is urging all Arabs, especially youth to open their eyes, be on the alert, and start ‎thinking about the US and European plans to dominate the Middle East, but in a new and ‎unfamiliar way.‎

Any Arab country would be wrong in thinking that any other than the North Atlantic Treaty ‎Organization would oversee the reconstruction of Gaza. A political process of an utmost ‎importance, is that there are large amounts of reconstruction would be allocated, and would not ‎be given to Hamas or the Palestinian Authority.‎

The Treaty Organization would govern all the allotted monies; NATO is coming to the region ‎strongly. We have to be aware that Israel exists as an associate member in the European Union ‎‎(EU). Mr Haikal added, “Here I say that the engineer of this movement is the European Tony ‎Blair, former British Prime Minister.”‎

Eliminating Hamas is not entirely accomplished yet. The signed treaty between Condoleezza ‎Rice (on her last days in office) and Israel’s Foreign Minister, Tzipi Livni, was about the ‎preparations in the area without the consultation of the concerned parties, aiming at imposing ‎some effects there.‎

There will be a backlash against Hamas, when such stage comes about and the awakening (after ‎the terrible nightmare) takes place and that is when Hamas will face its great losses.‎

Mr. Haikal ended his talk by referring to a new book called “A World of Trouble”, by Patrick ‎Tyler. The author “draws on newly opened presidential archives to dramatize the approach to the ‎Middle East across U.S. presidencies from Eisenhower to George W. Bush.‎ ‎” ‎

Understanding what is happening around us makes us recognize the need to become aware of the ‎much deviant propaganda that minimizes Israel’s war crimes by turning the world into spectators ‎looking at the crime scene merely as an amusement park, where the Arabs are regarded as ‎terrorists worthy of execution.‎

Clearly, what all this boil down to are two main problems; one is that some people, calling ‎themselves leaders of the superpower and the “advanced” countries, are playing games to see ‎who wins and keeps his presidency and popularity the longest. They are playing the weaker ‎countries as marionettes in their hands, believing that such third world and backward countries ‎are idiots and that with propaganda they would easily turn those Arabs into pallid clones of the ‎West.‎

The second problem is that the leaders and many of the people in the Arab world, especially from ‎among the youth find it somewhat appealing to be dominated, and thus accepting being ripped ‎off their dignity, in order to keep their power, position, image and all false and old myths about ‎the West being their idle and even their saviour.‎

In the end, the only way to counteract all such problems would be a unified awakening; that is to ‎spread awareness and that all Arabs would unite under the same goal and adopt the propaganda ‎that neutralizes that of the superpower.‎

2009 THEME: Islam in the West and Our Children (Discussion & Resources regularly updated)

There is increasing concern that second and third generation Muslims in the West are mostly no longer Muslims so they actually end up adding to the Christian or Atheist population of the West, albeit racially from a non-Western origin. Accordingly, the ratios mentioned in the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-3X5hIFXYU) would be correct in regards to race or ethnicity but not necessarily to religion.

It is a grave danger facing our children and grand children from a real life stand point as statistically only 1/5 of the second generation stay really Muslims when they grow up and are independent and almost non from the third generation are Muslims. And that is why the Western authorities are still permitting the immigration of Muslims inspite of the figures provided in the above video. They know that on the long term the descendants of Muslims in the West leave Islam because their parents raised them up with an Eastern mentality in a Western society instead of an Islamic mentality that encompasses all cultures.

You can see more about that by Jeffrey Lang; an ex-atheist American Mathematics University Professor who reverted to Islam in 1982. He has also written 3 books that I highly recommend; "Struggling to Surrender", "Even Angels Ask" and "Losing my Religion; A Call for Help".
Now I will leave you to enjoy 2 short excerpts from one of his lectures followed by links to his most important full presentation regarding our children.

Here is a solution that is yet to be implemented.

Raising children here is not an easy task ofcourse but if we do it the right way they will be true Muslims in shaa Allaah who are "Informed Muslims" rather than "Muslims by inheritance" like their counterparts in the East. Hopefully they will then be a much better generation than ours.

Quickly, I do believe that the best 4 authors (for example, there are many others but these are my favorite) who could guide us through this difficult process are Yahiya Emerick, Jeffrey Lang, Jamal Badawi and Dalia Mogahed.

Here are some links for future reference and for an ongoing learning process that I have started collecting slowly.
Please spread the below information to all your Muslim contacts in the West.

Jeffrey Lang:
http://meccacentric.com/jeffrey_lang.html I highly recommend the lecture titled "The Purpose of Life". It has true meanings that I have not come across in any Arabic literature.

Yahiya Emerick:
Articles:
http://www.islamicedfoundation.com/articles/articles.htm
http://www.islamfortoday.com/yahiyaemerick.htm I highly recommend reading and spreading the last article in this link by the name of "The Confusion of the Scholars"
Books:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=sr_adv_b/?search-alias=stripbooks&unfiltered=1&field-keywords=&field-author=Yahiya+Emerick&field-title=&field-isbn=&field-publisher=&node=&url=&field-feature_browse-bin=&field-binding_browse-bin=&field-subject=&field-language=&field-dateop=&field-datemod=&field-dateyear=&sort=relevancerank&Adv-Srch-Books-Submit.x=29&Adv-Srch-Books-Submit.y=8 There are only 14 books, about half for adults and the other half for kids. The extra are just repetitions.

Jamal Badawi:
Many products including books, articles and lectures mostly for adults. You can find them by searching his name online. My favorite is;

Dalia Mogahed: (Obama's adviser)
Has one book so far but has a great potential. "Who Speaks for Islam".
You can watch her debate with Irshad Manji (an openly Lesbian Canadian Muslim who is distorting the picture of Islam in the name of "Progressive Islam")http://fora.tv/2008/07/01/Irshad_Manji_and_Dalia_Mogahed_-_Who_Speaks_for_Islam

Finally here is a website for a store that sells lots of Islamic products including Islamic cartoon DVDs in English and Arabic for kids.
