The 11th of September 2001, in my view represents a seminal event that may shape history over the next few centuries.  Why, you may ask?  After all, Word Wars 1 and 2 collectively resulted in far greater losses of life, numbering in the tens of millions.  The atomic attacks by the US on Japan alone account for the deaths of 50 times more innocent civilians than died in 911. The importance however of 911 for me lies in its potential to undo the until-now tight alliance between Western money-power and Western military power.  Let me explain what I mean by these:  Western money-power, as manifested currently in the integrated global banking system, dates back to around 1800 when the major banking families of Europe laid the foundations of what we experience today as the global financial system.  Western military power, in my view, dates back to the conference at Vienna [Read further…]

The major religions like Judaism, Christianity and Islam all have plenty of constructive elements. (I even think that the rational core of an Atheist as a response to irrational elements of religions is something constructive.) Religions, based around a sacred and transcendent core deity, each has something very special to offer mankind however. I wish to list what I see as the most powerful contribution of each of the religions that I have considered. What makes me capable of seemingly arrogantly coming here and declaring my views on various religions? Let me offer some credentials firstly then: I spent almost 9 of my most formative years in Christian schooling. With the exception of my final three years of primary school, which I spent in a Muslim class, the rest were all spent in Christian schools and predominantly 90% Christian classes. During these years I joined in with my Christian class [Read further…]

All religions promise a good life on earth. Many of them also promise a good life after we die.   All religions preach very different ideas though. Who do you believe? I can imagine the answer coming from most of you: “I am happy with what my parents brought me up in.”   If you believe that, then I have one more question to ask you, after which you can happily stop reading. My question is, if each person’s parents taught them the best religion possible, and calls other parents’ religions false, then how do we know which one is telling the truth? Like for example, if my parents are Muslims and your parents are Christian, and both regard each others’ beliefs as being wrong, whose parents does a neutral person seeking an answer believe? If this question troubles you, keep reading. If not, thank you for your time. If I flip [Read further…]

Courtesy http://www.moonofalabama.org/mainleft.jpg The tribal groups in north Yemen that make up the Houthi movement have always been distinct in their fighting spirits. When the Saudi army was send to beat them it was thoroughly defeated. They have also always felt that they did not receive a fair share of Yemen’s not so big oil revenues and other spoils. During the last decades they fought some six small wars against the Yemeni army. In 2012 the U.S. and its Wahhabi Arabic Gulf allies expelled the longtime Yemeni president Saleh and replaced him with his vice president Hadi. There was some hope that Hadi would change the quarrel on the ground and teh dysfunctional state but the unrest in the country kept growing and as the oil prices went down so went the Yemeni government. Hadi could only beg the Saudis to finance him and in return had to fulfill their political [Read further…]

My humble proposal is that Truth, or that which is good, correct, real and wholesome for the involuntary actions of human beings, does not necessarily require a champion.  What in fact requires a champion, an activist, an intervener or an agent is the eradication of falsehood. By falsehood, I mean those actions and beliefs that are false or harmful.  At best, Truth requires a confirmer.  This is exactly the role of the Prophets of God, upon whom be peace.  Look at this verse from the holy scriptures:   Surah Fatir, Verse 31: وَالَّذِي أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ هُوَ الْحَقُّ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِعِبَادِهِ لَخَبِيرٌ بَصِيرٌ “That which We have revealed to thee of the Book is the Truth,- confirming what is in front of it, for Allah is assuredly- with respect to His Servants – well acquainted and Fully Observant.” Most translators of the arabic have interpreted [Read further…]

Speech by fighter Khanyisile Tshabalala in response to President Jacob Zuma’s State of the Nation Address, parliament, June 19 2014 Hon. Speaker Hon. Pres. of the Republic Honourable Members The power of white monopoly capital to dispossess, oppress and exploit Black people, especially Africans, cannot be overstated, especially in instances, of a willing conscious ally in the form of an African government. In the words of one of the largest white monopoly capitalists, Amschel Rothschild, founder of the House of Rothschild, capital does indeed run politics, and he makes no apology to that. He said, and I quote, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” Honourable Speaker, the weight of what was said back in the eighteenth century, continues to hold true today, for what Amschel Rothschild was insinuating is that the law-makers of a state are kept at ransom by [Read further…]

Mike Whitney, counterpunch.org “It is no longer plausible to argue that ISIS was a result of unintentional screw ups by the US. It is a clear part of a US strategy to break up the Iran-Iraq-Syria-Hezbollah alliance. Now that strategy may prove to be a total failure and end up backfiring, but make no mistake, ISIS IS the strategy.” – Lysander, Comments line, Moon of Alabama “US imperialism has been the principal instigator of sectarianism in the region, from its divide-and-conquer strategy in the war and occupation in Iraq, to the fomenting of sectarian civil war to topple Assad in Syria. Its cynical support for Sunni Islamist insurgents in Syria, while backing a Shiite sectarian regime across the border in Iraq to suppress these very same forces, has brought the entire Middle East to what a United Nations panel on Syria warned Tuesday was the “cusp of a regional war.” [Read further…]
