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]

Now with his killings of peaceful demonstrators, the wheel has turned and Gaddafi now faces the prospects of charges of crime against humanity.

Bashir also visited Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi in Tripoli, the capital of Libya. Qaddafi had his own ideas about uniting Arabs and welcomed Bashir. Qaddafi was ready to supply oil, weapons, and tactical support for the Sudanese army. In July 1989, the two leaders signed a Union Treaty calling for a merger of Sudan and Libya. Bashir later praised the treaty as “a first step towards the full unity of the Arab world.”


When Sudan’s war in the south resumed, Libyan pilots flew bombing missions against the SPLA. In return, Bashir allowed Libyan troops to use western Sudan as a base to attack Chad. At the time, Chad was involved in a civil war similar to Sudan’s. In Chad, however, the Christian and animist southerners held power and northern Muslims were the rebels. Qaddafi wanted to overthrow the president of Chad, southerner Hissène Habré, and replace him with a Muslim from northern Chad. In December 1990, the Chadian rebels, with Libyan help, defeated Habré and made Idriss Déby president of Chad.

Mar 24, 1996 … Farrakhan’s support of the Sudan comes as the Islamic government of Lt. Gen. Omar Ahmed al-Bashir, the current president, is engaged in a civil war that pits the largely Arab Muslim north against the mainly Christian and animist blacks in the country’s south.


In recent years, officials in the United Nations and the U.S. government have accused the Sudanese government of condoning a traffic in human beings.


According to these organizations, Sudanese soldiers and Muslim militias who have been armed by the government have transported captured blacks to the north, where they are used as household slaves.


“It’s war booty,” said Jemera Rone, a field representative for Human Rights Watch/Africa who has visited the Sudan twice in the last three years.

Dafur & Armenian Genocide: PM Erdogan “A Muslim can never commit genocide.”
Tundra Tabloids 9 November 2009


Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan: No dhimmi can judge a Muslim.


The Turks still refuse to come to terms with their history of genocide of the Armenian people. Successive Turkish governments were responsible for the state murder of over 2 million Armenians and 300 000 Greeks.


Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan: “It’s not possible for a Muslim to commit genocide,” he said. “That’s why we are comfortable [with the visit of al-Bashir].”


Turkish PM,Tayyip Erdogan’s, statement is eerily reminiscent of what OIC (Organization of the Islamic Conference) secretary general Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu stated to the Tundra Tabloids last year in Helskini about Islamic anti-Semitism:


OIC sec-gen Ihsanoglu


“..you cannot speak about any Muslim, good or bad, as anti-Semitic, this is a theory, this is not the case.”


This is the exact same kind of denial as Recep Tayyip Erdog(an’s, concerning the Armenian genocide by successive Turkish governments, which shows an Islamic supremacist frame of mind. What is most likely, is that these two Turks are exhibiting the same anger and frustration over the fact that non-Muslims (read = Dhimmis) are holding Muslims accountable for their actions, and that, for a Muslim, is something that cannot be allowed under any circumstance. That, more than anything else, including racism and genocide, is what bothers these two Muslim leaders the most.
Sudanese President Bashir’s visit to Turkey in limbo


Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir has pushed back his planned visit to Turkey, Turkish aviation officials said on Sunday, adding that the controversial leader canceled his Sunday flight without any explanation.


It was not clear whether al-Bashir will come to Turkey on Monday or Tuesday for a summit of Islamic nations, the officials added, according to a report by the Dog(an news agency.


The statement came hours after Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdog(an defended al-Bashir’s visit by saying, “A Muslim can never commit genocide.”


“Those world leaders who criticize us, have they ever visited Darfur? Their information is solely based on what the rapporteurs are reporting. These kinds of moves will not contribute to world peace,” Erdog(an said Sunday in an address to party members.


“It’s not possible for a Muslim to commit genocide,” he said. “That’s why we are comfortable [with the visit of al-Bashir].

Boston Globe Rights group slams arrest of Turkish journalists
Rights group slams arrest of Turkish journalists .
Sunday, 06 March 2011 00:17 Mohideen Mifthah.


ANKARA, March 5, 2011 (AFP) – A human rights group condemnned Saturday the recent arrest of journalists in Turkey and urged the country to show its commitment to press freedom as it seeks European Union membership.
Ten people, most of them well-known journalists, were placed in preventive detention Thursday on suspicion of an alleged plot against the Islamist-rooted government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Those arrested include Ahmet Sik and Nedim Sener, two prominent journalists known for critical reporting on the Turkish criminal justice system and police, Human Rights Watch said.
Sik is co-author of a book about the investigations and trials in the Ergenekon case – named after an organisation allegedly at the centre of a conspiracy. He had been working on a book about the police.
Sener had written a book on the murder of Hrant Dink, a well-known journalist and human rights defender, and the investigation into his killing.
“In the absence of evidence that the police have credible reason to think Ahmet Sik and Nedim Sener are responsible for wrongdoing, their arrests are a disturbing development,” said Emma Sinclair-Webb, Turkey researcher at HRW.
“It raises concerns that what is now under investigation is critical reporting rather than coup plots.”The opposition and a substantial part of the media say the supposed conspiracy, which has led to the incarceration of hundreds of opposition figures since 2007, is a means of stifling all political dissent in Turkey.
After the latest wave of arrests the European Union and the United States expressed concern about press freedom in Turkey.
Most of the journalists detained Thursday are critics of the Turkish government. The law allows them to be questioned for four days before they are taken to court to be freed or charged.
Three other journalists were arrested and charged two weeks ago
In three months time elections are to be held in Turkey at which Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) will seek a third term.
Erdogan refused Friday any government intervention in an “independent judicial system.”Thousands of people, many of them journalists turned out Friday in Istanbul and Ankara to condemn the arrests.

Thousands Mourn Turkish Islamist Leader

ISTANBUL—Tens of thousands of Turks turned out Tuesday to mourn the death of Necmettin Erbakan, the country’s first Islamist prime minister.


Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan cut short a trip to Europe to attend the funeral, where a packed crowd outside Fatih Mosque chanted: “Mujahid [fighter for God] Erbakan,” punching the air. Rows of mourners in side streets around the mosque and on the main boulevard knelt to pray.


In a mark of the central role Mr. Erbakan played as lifelong political leader of the country’s religious conservatives, attendees at his burial service in Istanbul ranged from President Abdullah Gul…

An irrational, obscene hatred
Jun 7, 2010 … ‘Shut up. Go back to Auschwitz.” That was the response from the “peace flotilla” when Israel broadcast a radio message warning the Turkish flotilla that it was about to enter an area under naval blockade. In another response, someone on board the “humanitarian aid convoy” replied: “We’re helping the Arabs go against the US. Don’t forget 9/11, guys.” After these exchanges, IDF commandos landed on the ships. On the Mavi Marmara they were attacked by pro-Palestinian activists wielding iron bars.

Turkish papers have now published photographs of soldiers bleeding badly as they are assaulted by thugs.

Eventually the commandos shot back in self-defense and nine activists were killed. It was a disaster for Israel and a triumph for those who hate Israel, Jews and the West. Bulent Yildirim, head of the Turkish Islamist organization IHH, which organized the flotilla, exulted in a speech to an audience he called “people of paradise.” “Last night, everything in the world has changed, and everything is progressing toward Islam,” he said.

Then again, it (false accusations by the infamous  un-reliable radical political group: B’tzelem) reminds us all the UN’s such loud & harsh “accusation” of Israel of “killing Kids in Gaza“, then later on “woke up” told the truth, AKA retracted it ,
)

 yet, the damage of the false accusations on innocent Israel is still there, full force.

What is bias in the middle east conflict? [March, 2009]

 What is bias in the middle east conflict? [March, 2009]

 

Arabs’ racist killing (specifically) Jews *, is accepted “freedom fighting’.

Israelis worried of Arab terror *, branded as “racists”.

*

War crimes, crimes against humanity by Palestinian Arab leadership – regime in Gaza * * * of using Arab civilians, making sure their kids die, for the “greater good (Jihadi-fascism’s goodness) of making Israel look bad…” * * * * * * *, using hospitals *, schools, UN medical vehicles * *, even aid material sent by humanitarian Israel * for murder, targeting at Israeli civilians, – shoved aside, ignored *.

Israel’s humane army’s extreme measures not to hit civilians (including 250,000 warning phone calls  to Arab residents to evacuate a particular area designated to be included in an op., knowing full well terrorists can cease the opportunity and flea, as well as risking young soldiers’ lives in going door to door) * * * * aiming only at Hamas terrorists is denounced of “random shooting” and “war crimes”.

*

[Arab led pressure forcing Israel to conduct] Uprooting Jews from their homes and their ancestors’, AKA Transfer * * AKA Arab Palestinian Apartheid * is “good for peace”.

Transfer of Arabs (who don’t have more than 2 or 3 generations of history in Judea / Israel / Palestine * * * *) is “apartheid, fascist and racist” * (AKA Avigdor Lieberman).

*

While Hamas or even “Moderate” Fatah refuses to recognize Israel *, international aid is flowing their way.

UN is “busy” condemning Israel * * on whatever is being told (forced) by the global Arab Muslim oil lobby.

The ‘Qassam Kindergarten’ Jihad

February 12, 2009

 

The ‘Qassam Kindergarten’ Jihad

 
‘Palestinians’ Islamic Hamas, “loves” children, well, in their special ‘death cult’ type of way anyway.
 
You already know how they love their own children… to die for propaganda, and make every effort in succeeding in it – unfortunately.
 
But there are also other children under the “wings of Jihadi love” of Hamas, the Israeli children in schools, in kindergartens, they are “favorites”, favorites in Hamas’ targets that is, planning the time/place when/where they go to school, thank God for so many miracles where children weren’t harmed.
 
Call it ‘Qassam kindergarten’, ‘Kindergarten Jihad’, or plain ‘Jihad on kids’ the broader reality.

A Petition to the U.N. on Palestinian Muslims Crimes

A Petition to the U.N. on Palestinian Muslims Crimes
By Jamie Glazov
January 16, 2009
Gabriel: Something simply had to be done to bring attention to what Hamas is doing. Hamas is a religiously driven radical Islamic organization. Westerners simply do not understand, and I believe have a hard time believing, how far radical Muslims are willing to go to accomplish their objectives. That’s why so many in the West tend to dismiss the evil of Islamofascism and Islamists’ depth of hatred towards the Jews and their commitment to destroy Israel at any cost — including sacrificing their own children to achieve their goal.

Disgraceful Jihad Appeaser Jimmy Carter LIES openly on CNN’s Larry King and no one refutes him?

February 8, 2009
Disgraceful ‘Jihad Appeaser’ Jimmy Carter LIES openly on CNN’s Larry King and no one refutes him?
 
 Sat. (Feb. 7, 2009) night, Jimmy Carter said: ’Israel, it could have responded to the rocket attacks without firing on churches (excuse me, what churches in Islamic Gaza is he talking about???) and on Mosques’.
 
 A short while after that Larry confronted the worst-ex-president “You said earlier that Israel fired on mosques and on schools, what was Israel supposed to do as they responded to where the FIRING CAME FROM”?
 
 Jimmy, “I don’t known I wasn’t there, I only know that the UN said that Israel fired on them and there were only civilians there”.
 
Hey, Jimmy, so what if we show you now the updated version by the UN where they retracted their false accusation on Israel will you have the guts and say the truth about humane Israel that Israel was (as always is) humane on targeting only Islamic terrorists but Palestinian (”legitimate voted govt in Gaza – Hamas”.) Muslims commit crimes against humanity – target civilians?
