American Politics in the Middle East between Hiroshimatization & Marsh

American Politics in the Middle East between Hiroshimatization & Marshalization:


1st of all,

1. The analysis of American Politics in the Middle East shows that they
fluctuate around two theories:
The first one is what might be called "Hiroshimatization", and the second "Marshalization" as in the Marshal Project that saved Europe and Germany, in particular, after World War II.
These same American Politics in World War II, America is now hesitating to implement one of them in the Middle East after September 11.

2. America had punished Japan –who had started the transgression by destroying
the American fleet in Pearl Harbor- by using the Atomic Bomb for the first time in history destroying Hiroshima, completely, and Nagasaki, partially, and ending the Second World War.
This was followed by Japan giving in to the American colonization and conditions, forsaking its military project and ambition for regional expansion, its military heritage and Aristocratic Ideology, immersing itself into the American culture –at least partially- and the generation of fierce Samurai fighters was replaced by a, somehow, Americanized generation that believed in Democracy. With these changes, Japan became an economic fort, a follower and ally of America.

3. The key point for this change was the Atomic Bomb. If it had not been used,
the war between America and Japan would have lasted very long and it would have been difficult for America to invade the Japanese islands especially as the Suicidal Ideology prevailed amongst the Japanese in defense of their Homeland and adored Emperor.
The army of a people with this ferocity and stubbornness could not give in easily, and America had suffered so much to budge the Japanese armies from the Asian colonies, and it would have been impossible to invade the Japanese islands without sacrificing hundreds of thousands of American troops. That was a price unacceptable to the American people. Thus, came the use of the Atomic Bomb to end the war quickly and save the lives of American soldiers.

4. Although there is a number of differences between the American/Japanese
Scenario and the Arab/American one of September 11, there is nevertheless some resemblances. Japan was the transgressor in Pearl Harbor and Ben Laden's Qaeda started the transgression as well by attacking the New York Twin Towers. Also, Suicide was the Transgressors' ideology in both scenarios.

This is why Extreme Americans see that the ideal option to reform the Middle East is another Hiroshima scenario. I.e. exterminating the fierce irreformable generation and replacing it with a reformable one just like it was the case with Japan.
Of course America will not literally use another Atomic Bomb. This time the bomb is of a different nature but with the same effect, and the modern Conservatives call it "Innovative Anarchy."


5. There is a difference between Hiroshima Bombing and Innovative
Anarchy in the fact that the former is a physical military weapon that comes from abroad and drops from the sky cultivating the lives of hundreds of thousands and leaves others to die slowly over decades. Whilst the latter is an intellectual political bomb that deploys from within, moves and spreads slowly and assertively to destroy everything until the government is toppled, anarchy prevails and different sects kill one another until an entire generation is wiped off and replaced by another which we would not know if it will be as good as the Japanese' or as bad as The Ben Laden's.

Another difference ie case with Japan.
Of course America will not literally use another Atomic Bomb. This time the bomb is of a different nature but with the same effect, and the modern Conservatives call it "Innovative Anarchy."

Another difference is between Japan and Muslims.

Pagan, feudal Japan had developed and became the most powerful country in the Far East, then expanded by allying with Nazism and was only defeated with the Atomic Bomb. Then it emerged from the ruins and destruction of World War II as a leader of free trade and an influential factor in Technological advancement, current Development and World Peace.
Before and after the war, Japan always separated between politics and religion and in all cases, it still preserves its religious identity to the present day. This had helped Japan to succeed and as America could not break it from within it resorted to the Atomic Bomb from above.

Japan had started its Economic development with the Modern Egyptian Development between the 19th and 20th Centuries. And despite its destruction in World War II, Japan continued ahead with its development and ranks, today, amongst the leading powers of the world...

Egypt was an en example for Japan at the offset of Modern Development. It was the first to constitute a Parliament, the first to have –partially- independent Newspapers, and Imam Muhammad Abdu, toward the end of the 19th century, was calling for a secular party for which he had set out a constitution we can only dream of today.
Unlike Japan, Egypt was not destructed by World War II, but Egypt has ended up at the bottom whilst Japan reigns at the top.
Egypt, who was ahead of Japan a century and a half ago, is now lagging behind other recently formed African states like Mauritania, Kenya and Zimbabwe in terms of Democracy, and headed by Qatar in the Arab World …….(we pray for longevity for President Mubarak…… )

6. The enlightening political move that was started by Muhammad Abdu and his
School was confiscated. Amongst the leaders of the political move was Saa'd Zaghloul, and amongst the enlightening religious thinking leaders were Ali and Mustapha Abdulrazek, Taha Hussein and many others.
A number of factors led to this confiscation, the main of which is the constitution
Of the Third Saudi State in the Arabian Peninsula by the son of Saud (Abdel Aziz
Ben Abdelrahman) who had formed the Muslim Brotherhood (al ekhwan al
Muslimon) through his servant Sheikh Mohammad Rashid Reda, who was a pupil
of Mohammad Abdu but had turned against him and his move for reform and
worked on spreading Al Wahhabiya and its organizations. As a result of which is
the Muslim Brotherhood.
By mixing up backwarded, mundane, Wahhabite, Sunni religious interpretations
with politics, and by struggling to create political rule with this idolatrous
background the sources of backwardedness were rooted in Egypt, and spread out
with the Muslim Brotherhood disseminating anarchy, blood and divisions.
So, Arabs and Muslims slumbered in backwardedness and the practice of
terrorism as Jihad whereof the accusations of Islam of Extremism and
Terrorism.

7. For this reason, the New Conservatives in America see that there is no hope
for reforming this generation of Arabs and Muslims, and their continuity will ruin the future of the next generations. The solution, according to them, is in destroying these generations of extreme Wahhabites and Shiites to make room for another generation that lives according to modern times and not with a mentality of the Middle Ages.
The New Conservatives are considering a method of destruction that paves the way
for internal factors to destroy Arabs and Muslims within the American
control. It will be a calculated Anarchy and Innovative in the sense that it will
bring into being a new generation instead of a contaminated corrupted one.
America did not invent Wahhabism but assisted it, nor did it create the military,
Dictatorial Regimes in Muslim countries but is supporting them.

8. Let us take Iraq as an example…
America did not create the Ba'th party but had helped Saddam Hussein in his war
against Iran, and was neutral for a while towards the invasion of Kuwait until it got
Saddam in the trap and arrived in the region to bring more anarchy and destruction.
After invading Iraq the army was dismantled and its arms and fractures were
disseminated inside the civilian population at a very difficult and sensitive time as
the old fierce ruling system crumbled down unexpectedly.
Iraqis were, all of a sudden, free with arms. There were no government or laws but
sects that hated and fought one another according to their regional allegiances.
Allegiances that do not want Iraq to be a powerful country because it is against
their interests.
The Iraqi army, the symbol of Iraqi unity, has become sectarian and semi-sectarian
militias that are killing one another.
The borders of Iraq were also opened to Al Qaeda to enable America to hunt them
down inside Iraq, and so the country became a dramatic theatre for daily civil
massacres and Innovative Anarchy under the protection of the American Army.

At the same time, Lebanon is being prepared for the same destiny, along Syria,
Egypt, Sudan, Pakistan, Afghanistan….
This is the vision of the New Conservatives to the "Hiroshimazation" of the Arab
and Muslim Countries.

9. The other American vision is "Marshalization" according to the Marshal
project that helped Germany and Europe after World War II.

This theory is based on helping the current Arab Muslim generations to
reform themselves by themselves through Democracy and the use of
American Help -to Arab Muslim states- as a weapon to eliminate
Totalitarianism, reform the education system to cleanse it from Wahhabite
Ancestral ideologies and support Human Rights Organizations, Democracy,
Civil Society and Enlightenment.

10. All of this is highly opposed by the Dictatorial Regimes in the Arab World,
and as much suffering, corruption, restraint, hunger, emphasis on Emergency Laws and Autocracy as there is, these Regimes hold on to power and oppose the Marshal Style of American Politics for peaceful reform, and along the same line meets with the Hiroshima Style advocates of the New Conservatives.

2nd of all,

After this analysis we may say in great conciseness that:

1. The politics of Innovative Anarchy will eventually harm America as the
Anarchy will reach inside America itself, where Islam is already spreading (with Wahhabite perspective) and Wahhabism controls millions of Muslim Americans and is working towards the creation of an American Taliban within the next two decades.
What will also help towards this is the revolution of technology and communication, and the ease of obtaining mass destruction weapons by the Terrorists to use inside America.
In the light of this, any security measures appear to be useless because they cannot protect America – who is naturally open to the world- as the new war is essentially intellectual and America is neither ready nor equipped to face an intellectual war (of a religious context and Arabic tongue) so how can it be ready to attack extremists inside or outside America?

2. The peaceful style of reform is the way to save not only Muslims, but America
as well. Peaceful reform happens through peaceful intellectual confrontation with the ideologies of Extremism and Terrorism inside Islam and the emphasis on establishing secular states for Arabs and Muslims according to the International Covenants of Human Rights, and that would be the closest human endeavor can get to true Islam and Quran.

3. This is the role that America must play in order to, primarily, protect itself.
America can achieve this easily by allying up with Muslim thinkers who believe in Freedom and have a history of confrontation with Wahhabism and Terrorism. They know best about Intellectual war from inside Islam.
