Charles Taylor & Islamic Socialism

April 26, 2012

Islamic Socialism

From the CIA factbook:

Following a 1969 military coup, Col. Muammar Abu Minyar al-QADHAFI began to espouse his own political system, the Third Universal Theory. The system was a combination of socialism and Islam derived in part from tribal practices and was supposed to be implemented by the Libyan people themselves in a unique form of “direct democracy.[1]

The “Green Book” – Arabism, Islam & socialism, with Islam the main line

Author John L. Esposito:

Under Qaddafi three interrelated ideas were woven into Libya’s ideological identity: Pan-Arabism, socialism, and Islam. Qaddafi’s appeals to Islam were influenced by his personal piety and the sociopolitical realities of his country…
Qaddafi’s new gospel for the world was but an extension of his earlier decision to implement his own vesion of a socialism distinct from the prevailing foreign ideologies and erected on the twin pillars of Arabism and Islam: Our socialism is both Arab and Islamic. We stand midway between socialism and communism and socialism and capitalism.
Qaddafi’s assessment of the Arab world’s plight was cast in the categories of traditional Islamic revivalism. The Green Book championed many of the themes common to Arab nationalism and contemporary Islamic thought: anticolonialism and anti-imperialism; dependence on the West as the source of Muslim weakness and loss of identity; social injustice characterized by exploitation and corruption; the return to Islam to restore Arab/Muslim power and greatness; and Qaddafi’s own brand of Islamic socialism or social justice. [2][3]

Heavily influenced by pan-Arab Egyptian leader, G. A. Nasser. The Green Book was published in three parts (1975, 1977, 1978).[4] The basis for The Islamic Legion. Gaddafi’s former Mercenaries with its first mission, backing Uganda’s Islamic dictator Idi Amin, later on pushing a racist Arabism ideology in the Sudan.[5]

Qaddafi: ‘Islamic Socialism & a global ‘Muslim fundamentalist revolution’ goal

Moammar Gadhafi, who came to power in 1969 “fancied himself the Arab world’s answer to Mao or Castro, vowing to bring “Islamic socialism” to Libya… Long before Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden ever made America’s most wanted list, Gadhafi, 68, was the world’s top sponsor of international terrorism. President Ronald Reagan called him the “mad dog of the Middle East” and said that Gadhafi’s goal was “a world revolution, a Muslim fundamentalist revolution.”[6]

Qaddafi’s Islamic Socialism, ‘Green Book’ the World Revolutionary Center (WRC), and bloody atrocities, including the RUF / Charles Taylor in Africa

The BBC cites reports that war criminal Charles “Taylor received military training in Libya.”[7]

Bah: Islamic sudies, Hezbollah, Libyan training, RUF and Charles Taylor.

From Douglas Farah & Stephen Braun’s book Merchant of Death:

Bah, who also used the alias Balde, was a Senegalese whose birth name was Bocande. Born in 1957, Bah fought in the Casamance rebellion in Senegal when he was in his early twenties, then made his way to Libya for special forces training. A handsome, soft-spoken man with a deeply cleft chin and small ears, Bah had studied Islamic theology in Egypt, and in the mid-1980s joined the mujahideen in Afghanistan for almost three years. He returned to Libya in 1985, then fought for two years with Hezbollah in Lebanon before returning to Libya to help Gaddafi train the future leaders of West Africa’s failed revolutions. The RUF of Sierra Leone gave Bah the rank of general, and he led an RUF column on its first combat operation… He also became one of the few people Charles Taylor trusted. Bah had access to clients Bout needed. Bah retained close ties to Blaise Compaore, the president of Burkina Faso, and a host of other government leaders on the continent.[8]

Excerpt from a 2011 ‘Foreign Policy’ report:

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi is infamous for abuses he has inflicted on his own people but less well known is a campaign of carnage he inspired across Africa and Latin America.

Sands of time: Rebels hostile to the regime of Col Gaddafi emerge from the desert where once he trained future tyrants..

At the height of his power, Col Muammar Gaddafi was singled out by MI5 as the greatest state-sponsored terror threat of the 1980s.

It was a time when the Libyan leader is said to have become bound to repressive regimes and armed movements worldwide.

Flush with oil money, Gaddafi orchestrated a training campaign for students who became brutal warlords in Africa, a legacy which leaves the region unstable today, according to Douglas Farah, senior fellow at the International Assessment And Strategy Center in Virginia, US.

The national security consultant and analyst says: ‘Gaddafi’s World Revolutionary Center (WRC) near Benghazi, Libya, became, as scholar Stephen Ellis noted in his 2001 book, The Mask Of Anarchy, the ìHarvard and Yale of a whole generation of African revolutionariesî, many of them the continent’s most notorious tyrants.’

The desert training camps taught weapons and intelligence techniques, with doses of ideology from Gaddafi’s Green Book.

‘Courses lasted from a few weeks to more than a year, depending on the level of specialisation and rank one had,’ says Farah.

‘In addition to the African contingents, Gaddafi’s cells trained the Sandinistas from Nicaragua, along with other Latin American revolutionary movements and, in the process, built an enduring relationship with Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua and Venezuela’s Hugo Ch·vez.

Gaddafi, Ortega and Ch·vez also developed close ties with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc), a terrorist group reportedly producing more than half of the world’s cocaine.’

At the WRC in the 1980s and 1990s, a select group of students formed a fraternity who provided mutual support in their ruthless campaigns for power.

‘That network still wields considerable influence today through its alumni still in power, including Blaise CompaorÈ of Burkina Faso and Idriss DÈby of Chad,’ says Farah.

‘His closest ally in Africa was Robert Mugabe, who although not a WRC product, has been propped up by Libyan donations and subsidised oil shipments.’

Libyan leader Gaddafi embraces Zimbabwe leader Robert Mugabe..

However, Farah says: ‘Gaddafi has done well out of his investments, acquiring at least 20 luxurious properties and a stake in some of the few still-viable state enterprises after riding to Mugabe’s rescue.

Gaddafi also intervened militarily in the Central African Republic in 2001…

‘Gaddafi recruited Liberia’s Charles Taylor, who is now standing trial for crimes against humanity, including the abduction of children for combat, systematic rape and mass murder.

‘Another recruit, Foday Sankoh of Sierra Leone’s Revolutionary United Front (RUF), would be standing trial in the same court for similar crimes had he not died of natural causes.’

Sankoh formed the RUF under Taylor’s auspices and together they pioneered their signature atrocity in the 1990s.

‘The amputation of the arms and legs of men, women, and children as part of a scorched-earth campaign was designed to take over the region’s rich diamond fields and was backed by Gaddafi, who routinely reviewed their progress and supplied weapons,’ says Farah…[9]

Author R. D. Gastil:

The RUF, led by former army corporal Foday Sankoh (who has been detained in Nigeria since the coup), received assistance from Libya during the civil war and is reportedly influenced by Libyan leader Colonel Mu’ammar al-Qadhaff’s amalgam of socialist-Islamic philosophies in his “Green Book.” Civilians have borne the brunt of the violence. Thousands of children were recruited to fight on both sides, and many demobilized after a November 1996 peace pact have reportedly been again conscripted into the “People’s Army.”[10]

Sex-Scandal in Cartagena, Colombia, radicalization of Arabs in Latin America by Islamic Hezbollah

April 15, 2012

CBS News – April 14, 2012:

Defense service members may be part of Secret Service “misconduct” scandal CBS News has learned that at least one United States Secret Service agent is alleged to have sought the services of a prostitute in Cartagena

ABC News – April 14, 2012:

‘Evidence of Prostitution’ Seen in Secret Service Scandal – ABC News By Pierre Thomas, Jake Tapper, Ann Compton, Reena Ninan Eleven U.S. Secret Service agents and five military service members are under investigation and facing possible reprimand for allegedly cavorting with prostitutes and drinking excessively at a Colombian hotel ahead of President Obama’s visit. A heated argument between at least one of the alleged prostitutes and at least one of the Secret Service agents on Thursday first alerted local authorities to the alleged behavior at the Hotel Caribe in Cartagena, officials told ABC News. […] “Sexual tourism” is reportedly widespread in Cartagena and other coastal cities. PHOTO: Hotel Caribe in Cartagena, Columbia is seen in this…

NYPOST – April 14, 2012 :

Secret Service agents get hook in sex scandal By Josh Saul A lurid scandal has struck the US Secret Service, after a dozen agents responsible for protecting President Obama were sent home from Colombia amid reports of misconduct with prostitutes. A senior law enforcement official said the situation was so serious that diplomats were brought in to mediate and the agency was forced to rush in a new group of agents to cover for those sent home. The agency did not release the number of personnel involved, but a US official put the number of agents at 12. Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officer Association, said the accusations related to at least one agent having involvement with prostitutes, according to reports.

The double jeopardy in the region – Arab-Islamic nationalism and prostitution

Syrian / Lebanese Arab immigration into the area is more concentrated in ‘Barranquilla, Cartagena, Santa Marta, and Maicao.’ The bordering city with Venezuela – Maicao (Col) market is probably 90% Arab.
 
Though not all Arabs in south America are “political,” and some are not Muslim, yet, the Arab-Islamic Hezbollah growing phenomenon in Latin America -in recent years- certainly sharpened Arab nationalism which is today very militant-Islamic in nature. A 2008 drug probe finds Hezbollah financing link and a 2009 report shows Hezbollah has active cell on Colombia-Venezuela border.
 
So did Chavez’s anti-Americanism, exploiting it, and embedding it into his “anti-Imperialism” sentiments. His pro-Arabism showed such strength that in 2009, a Kuwaiti MP “called to move Arab League to Venezuela.” Stating he “has proved that he was more Arab than some Arabs.” His government’s Justice Minister Tarek El Aissami, who is of Arab descent expelled Israeli ambassador in 2009. Hugo Chavez had illegally given more than 270 Venezuelan passports to Arab extremists

 

Last but not least: Hezbollah has been using prostitution (Muta) for recruitment, especially since the “holy” Islamic Hezbollah’s Militarization of Sex – Hezbollah’s halal hookups

__
 
PS Even if it turns out that Hezbollah is not connected ‘directly’ to the specific prostitution case in the hotel. The extreme ‘dangerous’ area (as detailed above), is enough of a concern.

Ignoring History’s Lessons on Hate
Anti-Semites once again get a free pass from Foggy Bottom.

The omission is especially surprising because just a few days ago, the American Jewish Committee released a study showing the PA’s schoolbooks characterize Jews in “hateful” and “derogatory” language, cite the Protocols of Elders of Zion as a legitimate source of historical information, and omit any mention of the Holocaust. (State’s report did contain one vague mention of the fact that in the 1990s, Holocaust denial “became commonplace in popular media in the Middle East, particularly in the Palestinian Authority” — without any acknowledgment that most of that so-called “popular media” is government-controlled).

The State Department’s report defined anti-Semitism as including “allegations about Jews such as . . . Jews controlling the media” and “drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to the Nazis” (pp. 6-7). Yet among the numerous anti-Semitic cartoons that the report reprints, one did not find, for example, the August 13, 2007 cartoon in the official PA newspaper, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, of a hook-nosed Jew with prominent side-curls controlling the Arab media, or the March 4 cartoon, titled “Gaza’s Holocaust,” featuring an Israeli attack helicopter with its propeller in the shape of a swastika. (Expanding on that theme, a new Holocaust Exhibit has just opened in Gaza, featuring depictions of Israel throwing Arab babies into crematoria.

Attempts to have the group’s U.N. accreditation revoked were refused.

My Encounter With the Enemy in Milwaukee By: David Horowitz FrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, May 13, 2008. While waiting to speak at the University of …
At the top of the page was an anti-Semitic caricature of a Jew in the classic style familiar from the Nazi posters of the 1930s, which have become ubiquitous in the Arab world. The Jew in the caricature was standing in a garbage can with the cover on his head, dressed in a Nazi uniform, with an armband marked “H” for “Horowitz,” and the caption read “Horowitz Awareness Week.” This is the central of the tropes of the Muslim Students’ Association campaign on college campuses across the country: Jews are Nazis. “Bring your white sheets and brown shirts and COME ON DOWN! Flaming crosses and Stars of David will be supplied to those who arrive early.”

On the side of the garbage one can read a series of slanders about me that have been given currency by radical professors and the secular left on college campuses: “Muzzling Academics, Blacklisting, Hate Mongering, Race Baiting, Spying…” The flyer describes me as an “Israeli apologist and Judeofascist, and claims that I ran an ad in the university newspaper “alleging that a UWM student group, the Muslim Students’ Association, is an extremist organization engaged in violent jihad.”

Reminder, the MSM was quick to point out that the targeting of little Jewish kids in Europe was racist and even Nazi, but as soon it revealed it was an Arab Muslim, most changed tune [despite the clear racism of the crimes, described as ‘Nazi-like crimes’ even in al-Arabiya, besides, that he acted as a member of Forsane Alizza, banned for ‘racial hatred‘].

What happened? Are Arabs less racist than others?

Is it that great taboo (more…)
