Ikhwan Muslimun Offered Political-Out Path of Confrontation

ElBaradei, Muslim Brotherhood Offer Political Path Out of Egyptian Confrontation
Robert Naiman | Sunday 30 January 2011

Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader Essam el-Eryan said today that Egyptian opposition groups have agreed to back former IAEA head Mohamed ElBaradei to negotiate with the government, Al Jazeera reports:

Egypt's opposition groups have agreed to support opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei to negotiate with the government, a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood said on Sunday.

"Political groups support ElBaradei to negotiate with the regime," Essam el-Eryan told Al Jazeera.

This move by Egyptian opposition groups potentially offers a peaceful path out of the crisis not only for the Egyptian government, but also for the United States government, which is finding itself the object of increasingly bitter criticism from Egyptians who back the protesters' call for Mubarak to step down and see the policy of the United States of backing Mubarak as a key obstacle to the realization of their aspirations for free and fair elections. Failure to take advantage of this opportunity could lead to a bloody showdown in the streets - even worse than what we have seen already - for which the US would bear significant responsibility.

One path to the holding of free and fair elections would be the establishment of a transitional government to prepare the elections. Yesterday, US officials seemed to indicate support for this possibility. The New York Times reported:

Another possibility, American officials say, would be a transitional government led by an outsider, perhaps Mohamed ElBaradei, the former director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, who flew back to Cairo several days ago.


A frequent critic of United States policy, he could form a caretaker government in preparation for an election. As one American official said, "He's shown an independence from us that will squelch any argument that he's doing our bidding."

US officials have said that the Egyptian government should engage in dialogue with the opposition. Now, apparently, there's a proposal on the table from opposition parties for such dialogue. What the opposition parties want to talk about is establishing a path to free and fair elections - the same thing they have been demanding for months.

The proposal from the opposition parties for negotiations with the government is an opportunity for the US to "put its money where its mouth is." The US could publicly call upon, and privately pressure, the Egyptian government to respond to the opposition parties' call for negotiations.

Of course, many want the US government to do much more than this. They want the US and other Western allies of the Egyptian government to publicly condemn Mubarak, publicly call on Mubarak to step down, and indeed to try to force Mubarak out; and many are increasingly frustrated that the US is not even willing to condemn Mubarak.
The Washington Post reports today:

In the streets of Cairo, many protesters are now openly denouncing the United States for supporting President Hosni Mubarak, saying the price has been their freedom. They say the Obama administration has offered only tepid criticism of a regime that has received billions of dollars in U.S. aid.

The New York Times reported yesterday that the US says it does not want to call for Mubarak to step down because 1) it fears losing all leverage with Mubarak 2) it fears creating a power vacuum in Egypt 3) it wants to avoid the perception that the US was "once again" engineering the ouster of a Middle East leader.

Regardless of whether one believes that these stated reasons are the full story, or whether they are also a cover for other US motivations - the Times acknowledges that the administration's "restraint" is also driven by lack of enthusiasm for "dealing with an Egypt without Mubarak" - these are the stated reasons of the US for not responding to the protesters' call.

But publicly and privately backing the opposition parties' call for negotiations would not, on the face of it, trigger any of the stated US objections. It is a very modest demand, totally consistent with previous US statements, which would not plausibly lead to "losing all leverage" with Mubarak; it would not create a "power vacuum"; it would not reasonably lead to a perception that the US was
"engineering" Mubarak's ouster. On the contrary: the US would be raising the profile of a particular proposal for negotiations as a way out of the crisis, and increasing pressure on the Egyptian government to respond to it.

No doubt some folks who subscribe to the "cooties" school of international diplomacy may object to any U.S. endorsement of a process that involves the Muslim Brotherhood. But refusing to support this reasonable, pragmatic, and moderate proposal, just because the Muslim Brotherhood also supports it, would be extremely short-sighted. The Brotherhood brings a lot to the table in its potential to help peacefully establish a consensus government that could supervise elections that the majority of Egyptians would see as legitimate.

And the fact that the Brotherhood is endorsing ElBaradei to negotiate with the Egyptian government on its behalf indicates a key thing that ElBaradei brings to the table: since his return to Egyptian politics, ElBaradei has established a relationship of trust with the Brotherhood. This is a key asset for ElBaradei, the Brotherhood, and all Egyptians going forward towards the establishment of free and fair elections and of a government that the majority of Egyptians will see as legitimate.

The US should take advantage of this asset, and of this proposal for negotiations, and act decisively to forestall a bloody confrontation between protesters and forces loyal to Mubarak which could be significantly worse than what we have seen already, and for which the US would bear substantial responsibility.

Oh Ye Mr Chua Soi Lek - Busy body with Muslim Shaking Hand Culture.

asudi hamdun to ikram-ajk
show details 1:04 PM (7 minutes ago)

I do not know to answer well, because CSL does not need a propper answer. Either you answer or don't he pretends to establish with his own norm. Recognizes that Islamic protecting skind-touching as not so great Idea. What's about if people wanted to protect from H1N1 virus?. We are asked to wearing mask, washing hand frequently and many more tips to be done protecting people from deseases.

I think I know the reason why CSL doesn't agree with the Normala's way of wearing weaving-glove when shaking hand with men according to Islamic Norm and principles. Cuz for those who thought that nothing wrong with the "shaking genital-culture" between opposite gender without married, so what's the great Idea not to allow people shaking hand without weaving-glove..?..

Before we prolong the debate about this matter, I do advice CSL to read and understand the Islamic Norms and Cultures in a very systematic way, then let's find the great benefits of wearing weaving-glove for men and women when we do shaking hand while we are so called "AJNABIY" - has an ability to marry one another.

What's so great' about knowing Muslim values? – Chua

Harakahdaily- KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 25: MCA president Chua Soi Lek (right)appears to be on a warpath, defending his criticism of Muslim women who chose not to shake hands with the opposite sex for religious reasons.

In an angry reaction to questions from reporters, Chua insisted that the norm practised by many Muslim women to avoid skin contact with the opposite sex during handshake was contrary to "basic culture and manners to shake hands".

“I have been in the public life for many years. It's part of the basic culture and manners to shake hands," said Chua, who also scolded a reporter from online portal Malaysiakini, which first broke news of Chua's attack on PAS candidate Normala Sudirman.

Chua had poked fun over Normala's preference not to shake hands with the opposite sex, and compared it to a similar practice by PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

"She will not come here (a Chinese temple), she doesn't even shake hands with the people. I have received complaints about this.

“She is like Anwar Ibrahim's wife. She wears gloves when she shakes hands. If you can accept this kind of Islamic values, go ahead and vote for PAS," he said.

This was followed by deputy Domestic Trade Cooperative and Consumer Affair minister Tan Lian Hoe of Gerakan lashing out at Normala and saying her practise was proof of PAS's goal to establish "an extremist Islamic state".

“This is the most basic thing... Not only men, but when she shakes hands with women, she also needs to wear glove," alleged Tan in the presence of her minister Ismail Sabri.

"This is not friendly. It's as if she thinks our hands are dirty... I hope the Chinese voters are careful (with Islamic state). We are very worried about the Islamic state. They want to implement an extremist Islamic state," she added.

Chua's comments drew strong reactions from Muslims from both sides of the divide, with many recalling his sex video which exposed his adulterous affair in a hotel room in 2008. Even UMNO deputy president Muhyiddin Yassin chided him for raising religious issues in MCA's bid to convince Chinese voters that PAS would trample on non-Muslim rights.

Chua however dismissed Muhyiddin's reminder.

"There is no need for the DPM or the media to communicate this to us," an irate Chua was quoted byMalaysiakini as saying.

'What's so great?'

Despite the storm, Chua stood his ground, saying there was nothing great about knowing the Islamic religious values.

"So what is so great about that? That is your religious value which I don't know. How am I to know about the religious values when I'm not practising that religion?”

"I have the right to say that it's basic manners to shake hands with people. That's my values. Understand? You also must value my value, which is good manners, which includes shaking hands," he went on, as quoted by Malaysiakini.

Meanwhile, condemnations continue to pour in over Chua's comments, with Selangor speaker Teng Chang Khim saying Chua's ignorance reflected the failure of racial integration as claimed by Barisan Nasional.

“CSL says it's not fair for non-Muslim to understand Islamic values. No wonder BN's national integration policy has failed.

"CSL now blames the media for the hand shake issue. He never blames his narrow-mindedness and sheer ignorance,” added Teng on Twitter.

Perak mufti Harussani Zakaria has also broken his silence, and demanded Chua to issue an apology.

“He has to know... he must respect religious practices of others, but if he doesn’t know, that is ignorance. If he knows, but pretend not to, that is insulting Islam," said Harussani, but quickly added he was not supporting the PAS candidate

Apabila KSN diluncaikan — Subky Latif

22 JAN — Langkah kerajaan Selangor mempertikai perlantikan Datuk Khusrin Munawi sebagai Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri Selangor dikira oleh pentadbiran tinggi pusat sebagai mempertikai dan memperleceh penjawat awam atau PTD seluruhnya.

Menteri-menteri beranggapan begitu. Maka begitulah juga pendirian sekalian penyerokong Umno seluruhnya.

Bahkan itulah reaksi awal Istana Selangor atas reaksi awal kerajaan Selangor atas perlantikan itu. Kira-kira reaksi istana itu ialah jangan pertikai perlantikan Khusrin kerana ia boleh merendahkan penjawat awam.

Kesimpulan dari keadaan itu telah menjadikan semua pihak di Selangor — dari istana ke gobok usang, dari kerajaan dan pejabat Menteri Besar hingga ke rakyat jelata telah diluncai oleh keadaan.

Siapa yang menjadikan semuanya luncai?

Mari kembali kepada pemikiran Perdana Menteri Dr. Mahathir ketika berlaku kejadian 11 September ke atas menara kembar Pusat Dagangan Dunia di New York. Presiden George W. Bush mengecam ia angkara keganasan Islam. Reaksi Dr. Mahathir ialah jangan mudah menyalahkan keganasan tetapi salahkan dulu punca keganasan. Apa puncanya? Carilah punca itu.

Beramok Bush dan Dr. Mahathir atas persoalan itu. Dan rasionalnya ada di pihak Dr. Mahathir.

Maka apabila penjawat awam di Selangor dan sekaliannya telah diluncai, apa puncanya dan siapa puncanya?

Puncanya ialah Ketua Setiausaha Negara. KSN telah jadi luncai yang pertama. Dia diluncaikan oleh penguasanya iaitu Perdana Menteri Najib. Perdana Menteri itu ada politiknya. Justeru politiknya dia meluncai KSN dan seluruh sistem pentadbiran awam 1Malaysia.

Apabila merojok kepada pentadbiran awam 1Malaysia, maka ia satu pentadbiran luncai. Tindakan KSN dalam melaksanakan kuasanya mengikut undang-undang yang ada, telah meluncaikan perlantikan Khusrin. Ia dibuat mengikut undang-undang tetapi tindakannya tidak bijaksana. Undang-undang adalah satu hal tetapi kebijaksanaan adalah hal yang lain.

Gara-gara mengikut undang-undang semata-mata tetapi mengenepikan aspek bijaksana menjadikan SUK Selangor yang baru Luncai yang kedua.

Khusrin diluncaikan oleh Luncai pertama iaitu KSN. Reaksi kerajaan Selangor yang dikira meluncaikan penjawat awam telah menambahkan suasana luncai Khusrin.

Gara-gara reaksi kerajaan Selangor itu telah terbongkar Khusrin bukanlah pegawai PTD jusa yang ada kelas. Kelas jusa Khusrin belum layak jadi SUK. SUK jusa kelas tinggi.

Bukan senang untuk jadi jusa dari satu kelas ke satu kelas. Mesti melalui ujian. Mesti lulus ujian dulu.

Ramai lagi penjawat awam di Selangor yang sudah ada kelayakan jusa bagi menjadi calon SUK itu. Tetapi mereka tidak dipilih oleh KSN. KSN memilih pegawai jusa yang lebih rendah. Ini bererti penjawat awam seluruhnya, bukan sekadar di Selangor saja, telah diluncaikan oleh pentadiran luncai itu.

Di mana letak moral jusa kelas tinggi hendak duduk di bawah ketua jusa kelas rendah? Tidakkah mereka sudah dikartunkan iaitu sudah diluncaikan?

Inilah yang melambatkan Presiden Jerman dulu dalam melantik Hitler untuk menjadi Censelor. Hitler adalah bekas koperal tentera, sedangkan Presiden itu adalah pesara Fieldmarshal. Bagaimana Presiden yang berpangkat panglima hendak mendengar nasihat Censelor yang hanya seorang koperal?

Oleh kerana politik itu begitu, panglima terpaksa menerima kperal menjadi penasihatnya iaitu ketua kerajaannya. Censelor Jerman itu ada kedudukan politik. SUK Selangor bukan jawatan politik. Ia jawatan awam.

Hanya dalam suasana luncai saja seorang penjawat awam boleh dilantik menjadi SUK seperti melantik penjawat politik.

Bukan sekadar maruah Khusrin dipersoal dan direndahkan, tetapi maruah penjawat awam yang layak tetapi diketepi juga ikut terleceh. Semua menerima malu. Bukan Khusrin saja malu, habis semua orang lain malu sama. Ada yang malu kerana tidak terpilih dan ada yang malu kerana status jusya telah diluncaikan.

Apabila marauh sudah tercemar, bayangkan bagaimana anak Khusrin hendak berdepan dengan kawan-kawannya? Kawan-kawannya tahu, inilah anak orang yang perlantikannya telah dipertikai. Isterinya yang hendak menghadiri majlis rasmi yang dihadiri sama oleh isteri lain. Mereka akan merenung wajah isteri yang suaminya dikata begitu dan begini.

Apa masing-masing hendak kata apabila melihat Raja yang terperangkap dalam politik luncai itu?

Seronokkah KSN dengan tindakannya yang mengikut undang-undang tetapi tidak bijaksana? Dia sepatutnya bersara dalam suasana aman tetapi menjelang persaraannya dia menempuh alam luncai. Itulah pentadbiran 1 Malaysia. —

Ruang Rencana Utusan Malaysia 17 Januari 2011/ 12 Safar 1432H, memperkecilkan perbezaan pendapat Dr Hassan Mohamad Ali dengan En Ronnie Liu tentang perbezaan pendapat pemberhentian pekerja Muslim di premis-premis menjual arak dan yang berkaitan dengannya. Suatu sudut yang tidak dilihat ialah keberanian Dr Hassan Ali menjelaskan isu-isu Islam kepada rakan PR agar dapat diperbincangkan. Sedangkan UMNO/BN tidak pernah menimbulkan isu seperti ini kerana takut hubungan BN retak, bukan ingin tegakkan yang benar walau pun berhadapan dengan risiko komponen keluar parti. UMNO/BN patut mencerminkan diri dulu, sebelum mempertikaikan usaha PAS dalam menjalankan dakwah Islamiah kepada DAP. Mudah-mudahan permuafakatan PR akan mencapai keputusan sebaliknya iaitu benarkan umat Islam tidak terlibat dengan industri Arak dan Judi kerana kedua-duanya tidak membawa keuntungan ekonomi di dunia dan akhirat. Pujian harus diberikan kepada Dr Hassan Mohamad Ali kerana telah bertegas menjelaskan isu umat Islam yang berkerja di premis Arak perlu disemak semula, dan diberikan alternatif di dalam mencari rezki untuk keluarga dan anak-isteri. Inilah yang dikatakan bahawa kedudukan di dalam kerajaan digunakan untuk memenangkan Islam, bukan membisukan sahaja isu-isu Islam terpinggir hanya kerana menuntut redha manusia. Carilah redha Allah swt terlebih dahulu, agar Allah swt memberi kekuatan dan hidayah kepada golongan yang tidak beriman itu mengbah pandangannya demi kebaikan bersama.

RENCANA - Pas-DAP terus tidak sepakat dalam episod arak kedua

Apakah kerajaan campuran negeri Selangor dapat lakukan apabila hasrat Jabatan Agama Islam (JAIS) hendak melaksanakan undang- undang melarang umat Islam daripada bekerja di premis menjual arak nampaknya menerima tentangan daripada Exco kerajaan negeri itu.

Exco Hal Ehwal Islam, Adat-Adat Melayu, Infrastruktur dan Kemudahan Awam Selangor, Datuk Dr. Hassan Mohamed Ali sendiri mahu undang-undang itu dilaksanakan seperti termaktub di dalam Enakmen Jenayah Syariah negeri.

Hassan ada sebab bertegas mahu melaksanakan tanggungjawabnya bagi mencegah umat Islam daripada terlibat dengan urusan penjualan arak.

Sementara pendirian dua Exco daripada DAP iaitu Teresa Kok dan Ronnie Liu baru-baru ini membantah peraturan Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) yang melarang umat Islam bekerja di premis menjual arak.

Ronnie menggunakan kuasanya sebagai Exco Perumahan dan Kerajaan Tempatan dengan mengeluarkan satu pekeliling mengarahkan Yang Dipertua MPSJ supaya menarik balik larangan itu kerana mendakwa ia tidak disedari oleh kerajaan negeri.

Ronnie memberi alasan yang beliau bimbang kemungkinan akan ada umat Islam hilang pekerjaan dan sumber pendapatan selain mendakwa undang-undang syariah itu tidak lagi praktikal untuk dilaksanakan.

Mana air muka Pas apabila usaha pemimpin mereka ditolak mentah-mentah oleh DAP. Ini satu penghinaan kepada parti yang mendakwa memperjuangkan Islam itu.

Ia juga satu bukti jelas bahawa Pas dan DAP tidak boleh bekerjasama.

Kenyataan pemimpin tertinggi Pas kononnya Pas boleh bekerjasama dengan penentang nombor satu penubuhan negara Islam itu hanya retorik. Lebih mudah Pas hanya bertepuk sebelah tangan.

Dalam isu larangan orang Islam bekerja di premis menjual arak di Subang Jaya pun kedua-duanya tidak sependapat.

Kasihan Pas Selangor, sudah beberapa kali arahan mereka diketepikan oleh pemimpin DAP.

Jika isu larangan menjual arak ini Pas dan DAP tidak sepakat, bagaimana urusan pentadbiran negeri Selangor yang lain?

Apa kata Menteri Besar Selangor daripada PKR?

Kita terkejut apabila Ronnie Liu mengatakan udang-undang syariah yang melarang umat Islam bekerja di premis arak sebagai tidak praktikal.

Baru dapat kuasa, sudah menunjukkan lagak sombong dan bongkak. Kenyataannya itu boleh membakar lagi bara kemarahan yang sedia ada dalam diri umat Islam negara ini.

Apakah orang yang berkuasa di Selangor, Menteri Besar sudah 'hilang suara' untuk menegur anggota Exconya khususnya bukan Islam supaya tidak menyentuh hal-hal yang sudah termaktub dalam undang-undang seperti Enakmen Jenayah Syariah Selangor.

Jelas Ronnie Liu sudah dua kali mengganggu tugas pihak berkuasa tempatan yang sebelum ini terlibat dalam satu kes rampasan arak di Shah Alam beberapa tahun lalu.

Nampaknya hasrat umat Melayu di Selangor untuk melihat tiada premis menjual minuman keras di kawasan majoriti Islam di negeri itu tidak kesampaian.

Episod arak kali kedua ini mendedahkan pandangan Pas Selangor tidak ke mana pun. Apakah Pas akan tetap bersama-sama DAP dan PKR di bawah satu pakatan?

Knowing Comment on Mr Norman G Finkelstein

From a correspondent — How does one reply?

Hello Mr. Finkelstein

Hello Mr Finkelstein

I would like to begin by stating that i truly appreciate you as a person and your work. You are a true inspiration for all people all over the world who stick up for their rights or for the rights of others , that don’t have the possibility to speak for themselves or their words are demonized because of hidden interests.

In the context of the recent events involving the israelian army activity online has intensified from both parts. Only that from one part , those in defense of Palestine ,it comes natural from people’s principles and honest system of beliefs while from the other part is well organized and it reminds me of the meetings of the communists , with big and well synchronized parades , where all people are wearing the same color , i am saying this because i live in an ex communist country somewhere in south east europe

Arguments invoked are always the same when they ran out facts to present , facts that can be quickly debunked by even the ones that are not experts in this matter. They always appeal to words like ” anti-semitism” , “holocaust” or “jew hater”. Words that you’ve heard many times for sure as this is their standard procedure

I was saying that both the online and offline activity regarding the Israel - Palestine issue has intensified and you represent a real role-model , a real inspiration for everyone trying to stand up for what he truly believes

People like you should be idols and not cartoon characters produced by the brainwashing hollywood industry

You said yourself “Don’t put me on a pedestal or you’ll be disappointed” but the truth is that somewhere in the history you will be considered a hero and i’m saying this with a firm belief. You surely are aware of the words of Theodor Hertzl , who presided the first zionist meeting :“It is essential that the sufferings of Jews….become worse….this will assist in realization of our plans….I have an excellent idea….I shall induce anti-Semites to liquidate Jewish wealth….The anti-Semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-Semites shall be our best friends.”

Decades later the holocaust happened..and it exactly fits the description of those word of Hertzl…just like a plan that was going forward without any kind of flaws

One can’t help think about it and draw conclusions based on this and other information put together. Like the banks involvement in the war , like the role played by probably the most powerful jewish banking family in the Napoleonic war, that lead to taking over the power ( from all points of view : political ,morale , if i can use that term when relating to power, and financial) in England by that banking family, the same England that later controlled Palestine. Even if about 100 years passed between those events in all that time the circle of power in England remained the same as after the Napoleonic wars

Just like the words of Hertzl the jews were demonized by the “chiefs” zionists in order to take advantage of what was to happen next. The idea wasn’t new, it didn’t belonged to Hertzl , but most probably he borrowed it from someone who thought of it a couple of decades ago. As all over Europe there was a campaign in newspapers of that time , in which the jews were demonized or dehumanized . Campaigns that had as most prolific writers people with close ties to that banking family that took the reign of England after the napoleonic war.

I’ll give you an example from my own country, Romania. back in 1867 i believe there were a couple of articles that appeared in a french newspaper , written by a romanian , Eugeniu Carada , who studied in Paris , the article was called : ” The jews, vagrancy and the minister Bratianu” , as you can figure it out it was a defaiming article towards jews. One may say , so what, there were a lot of jews in Romania at that time and some romanians were anti semites. This may be true but the writer of the article , Eugeniu Carada was the one who pushed over the years , from 1870 to 1880 the setting up of the setting up of the central romanian bank. There are many records of him making often visits to London and Vienna , cities were the Rothschilds family have the biggest influence. The national Romanian Bank that took an huge loan only after 10 years of its existence from the Rothschilds. So Carada had no personal opinions , he only put in application a plan of others.

It is well known that the Rothschilds made huge pressures in that period in many countries across the globe for setting up central banks. An entire system of central banks that they controlled, this meant invincibility … Also Carada used to write for other newspapers in France , newspapers that represented the interests of one banking family , the Rothschilds. “La semaine finaciere”, another newspaper for which Carada wrote often, was most probably founded with this purpose alone, as that banking family in Paris needed more an more influence in order to expand , and in that period they were targeting the rail roads.

The idea of making demonizing jews and using anti semitism existed long before Hertzl and it was most probably thought of by the Rothschilds

Average zionists just like average people all over the world were used as weapons against the jews , and sadly , it worked , before the war , after the war , and even in our days is still working.

The zionist teenager that uploads videos on youtube on how he is proud of being a zionist ( the kind of people similar to that girl that burst into tears at one of your speeches as how she is really suffering only by hearing the word holocaust) , that makes radical comments on every forum sustaining “the cause” , that invokes “hate of jews” is just a tool in their hand, a tool that in his heart believes that is doing the right thing , finding for the state that they finally have . Opening their eyes is the hardest thing to do , if not impossible , but if will ever be achieved only then the conflict between Israel and Palestine will cease. Starting at the top is useless , the bottom is what holds everything together

I said at the beginning as how somewhere in the timeline of our history you will be looked on as a hero , bu if things in our world won’t change and will continue to evolve like hey are doing now , you will be seen as a hero because mr Alan Dershowitz and others like him wants so…

I must admit , since i’m not from US , i’ve never heard of Dershowitz until reading Finkelstein . Harvard or no Harvard the educational system is more and more corrupt everywhere in the world , the teachings got are what some want it to be , a school only for the elites will never be respected , teachers of only the elites will never get any respect and the offsprings of powerful people , in their vast majority , wouldn’t be able to make a living if born in an average family but with the same mind and judgement they have at the moment

I said you will be a hero if those like Dershowitz wants so because i see a very big possibility of what happened in the 2nd world war to happen again. More and more things fit the puzzle again after so many decades. There are again tries of demonizing and dehumanizing the jews under different hidden methods . And it looks like no matter the protests from all over the world Israel continues to play God with Palestine . Those who are defending these kind of actions are either doing it on purpose or are either having an intelligence coefficient way under the common sense limit. I’m saying this because it appears that their arguments are meant to cause more irritation and more disagreement in the west. Just like in the years of the world war two

If there’s another plan like that of Hertzl in existance there’s a big probability a new war and maybe even a new holocaust . maybe they are trying to place Israel somewhere else on the map this time. Only God knows

I only wish that there was someone like you to speak out on the issue of the International Monetary Fund , how it was created , the circumstances , the legality , their involvment in the entire world , the consequences , someone like you to be able to speak up against them like you did against Dershowitz , someone to keep calm even when he’s angry , someone ready to sacrifice his career for the this purpose.

It is very sad what happened to your academic career , but this shows the entire world once again that they have the power and thus the true meaning of mass manipulation

It was really funny to see the reactions of Dershowitz , the way he gestured , the way his eye twitched . If bet my life that if you were to ask him something and he would be connected to a lie detector , the machine would go in flames for all that duplicity of his. But you know who are said to be masters of duplicity , the girls staying home with their children at day and working nights on the streets … The same basic behavior characterizes Dershowitz

I will take the liberty of giving you an advice, although i am not really in te position of doing that , but i do that only because it may be of help to you in these harsh times and in at time you are attacked from many sides.

You ma consider an interface for your website under which you will be able to give live speeches online. I know for sure that there are many people worldwide that would love to hear you talk and interact live with you. People all over the world are respecting you , your beliefs, your work. you gave lots of speeches but for example a simple 60 years old from France or Spain or Canada can’t attend your speech as he has to ravel a lot to reach London or US.

I am sort of an online freelancer and i am giving you this advice from this perspective. It may be a worthy to take in consideration way of making an income.

You can have speeches once every two weeks , with registration for the speech closing before the day of the speech. With a registration fee of your choice , with interacting to those who attend by answering their questions , with commercial on your website about when the following speech will be so people will have time to register , you can also give a possible 5 themes ( or a number of your choice) on what the speech should be about and let those who register to chose the theme by voting like in polls. You can work the details with with someone with knowledge in this field , you’ll need a system of accepting online payments and also an interface through which you can communicate with those who will attend your online speech

i just can help giving advices. I wish to be wrong on this one but i don’t think your health is in the best condition. You said yourself you are a sedentary person and all who watched “The trials of Norman Finkelstein” could see you eating mostly fast food. Sedentarims and fats food is a lethal combination whose effects can not be reversed. A soup once in a while will do miracles ( i am not a fan of soup but i eat it ) or a meal cooked on your own will give you tremendous satisfaction , just like a walk in your favorite park full of green can clear your mind and charge your batteries , not to mention that will help you get some exercise for half an hour a day

Being a freelancer i used to have the same life style you mentioned ( sedentarism , computers , fast food) until i realized how much i am harming myself and i did what i mentioned above and both the body and the mind feel better, even if i am about half your age.

It will always help you in not putting to heart the personal attacks on you

Best of luck mr Finkelstein and remember you are a true inspiration for people worldwide !
