Tunisia – Ballots Not Bullets

Indeed a big and major achievement that Tunisia, birthplace of the Arab Spring (Jasmine Revolution) or what left of it was able to usher a new era of democratic reforms and is on the way of building a modern nation state of institutions not one party state or cult dictatorial personalities.

A Personal Apology

My sincere apologies goes first to the hundreds of thousands of Arabs, Christians and Muslims (Sunnis and Shiites), killed and murdered at the hands of foreign occupation and at the hands of criminal governments and criminal sectarian “jihadists” all over the Arab and Muslim worlds.

Missing – Arab Political Leadership

Whether we like it not, whether we agree with it or not, the Arab World in the last 60 years had two leaders of consequence and world stature, the late King Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud (1906-197) and the late Gamal Abdel Nasser (1918-1970).

Egypt Unfit to Lead

Any one who thinks Egypt is ready to lead the Arab world has to think twice.

False Flag Attack in Tunisia?

"some groups have raised concerns in recent months over an apparent rise in anti-Semitic language in Tunisia." Yediot Ahronoth, April 27, 2013

Harlem Shake: Freedom Dance Goes Viral Threatening Crusty Establishments Worldwide

The Harlem Shake has gone worldwide and viral going from stupid fun dance to a major protest effort by the young against the crusties who seek to oppress them and their future.

Arab Democracy; Now or Never.

It seems the tens of millions the United States injected in Egypt to promote democracy went down the drain, with most of the beneficiaries of such funding are now undermining the first free presidential election in over 7,000 years.

The Arab Spring was not about “Sharia” or “Secularism”.

Dr. Moncif Elmarzooki, President of Tunisia is correct when he stated in an interview in Asharq Al-Awsat (23/12/2013) and I rephrase, that the Arab Spring was not about Sharia or about ethnicity, sectarianism and nationalism, it has every thing to do with liberty, civil rights, freedoms, end of a police state and freedom from economic deprivations, corruption and dysfunctional state, decent life with full rights of citizenship.

The “Brothers” Are Coming, The “Brothers” Are Coming!

- The US, the West, and Israel and for decades supported “secular” and dictatorial regimes in the Arab world

The Price of Fear, the Price of Dictatorship.

I grew up when there were curfews that lasted for days, when listening to the wrong radio station could land you in jail, and when security/mokhabarat could haul you to jail for no reason at all.

Arab Spring and Alqaeda

The Arab Spring in Egypt, in Tunisia, in Yemen, in Syria certainly in Libya must be very disappointing to those American and Israeli Zionist NeoCons who took charge of the post September 11th defining Islam and Arabs as born terrorists and defining Islam as the faith of terror.

The American Misreading of Iran

It is clear that the United States and its Western European allies were caught completely unprepared for the revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, and Bahrain, as well as the upheavals throughout the Arab world.

An Arab Spring for Women: The Missing Story from the Middle...

The “Arab Spring” has received copious attention in the American media, but one of its crucial elements has been largely overlooked: the striking role of women in the protests sweeping the Arab world. Despite inadequate media coverage of their role, women have been and often remain at the forefront of those protests.

ADAM CURTIS : Goodies and Baddies

The idea of "humanitarian intervention" which is behind the decision to attack in Libya is one of the central beliefs of our age.

WILLIAM COOK : Tsunami in the Mid-East

It’s curious to consider how events in one part of the world offer images that reflect conditions in another part, as the devastation in Japan provides a glimpse into the eruptions spreading throughout the mid-east. The suddenness of the tsunami


Libya isn't the world's first all corporate war. Nobody expected a move against Libya, certainly not as a part of the drive for democracy that is sweeping the Islamic world. Moving against an oil giant with a military under tight controls based on tribal loyalties made Libya a poor target.

ARAB UPRISINGS: Time-Out For Israel Is Over

The Arabic street is the one who is calling the shots now, the coming Arab policies will try and reflect the pulse of the Arabic street. The united Arab sounds are to be heard at last where no American veto could come out to obliterate the truth and where no need to waste more than one million innocent Arabs to allegedly get rid of a dictator.

From Afghanistan: We Support the People of Wisconsin and the World

Afghan youth are quietly encouraged by the Egyptian uprising because the people of Afghanistan want what the people of Egypt want. We are all Bouazizi. We want dignified livelihoods. Dare any scientist prove to us that 30 years of wars and more to come will successfully bring us decent livelihoods? Dare any human being prove to us that mutual killings somehow bring men and women some measure of murderous dignity?

From Tunisia to Egypt to Wisconsin: The New Superpower of Global...

In responding to the worldwide protests aimed at stopping the US-led invasion of Iraq, The New York Times referred in 2003 to the existence of a new global superpower, that of world public opinion. Back then, however, the full potential of this force of change remained unrealized and underdeveloped as demonstrated by the outcome of the events of February 15. On that historic day eight years ago, tens of millions of anti-war protestors came flooding into the streets simultaneously in literally hundreds of large and small cities all over the planet.

The widening gulf between those who hold all the wealth in our various societies, those who manipulate the strings of power and the mass of people who produce that wealth with their sweat and labor, has widened to a point that has become intolerable even among the normally complaisant.

Rise People Rise – The Global Revolution is Upon Us!

Let us realize once and for all, that we the people are one, that we are human, that our most precious gift is that of our humanity. Let us never sacrifice it again. Together we are unstoppable. We are the sleeping giant, we are the waking lion, we are fierce and we are fearless.

Tunisia first victim of Israeli Public Relation Wikileaks?

Tunisia may be the first nation to be overthrown with Wikileaks playing an active part, this time in support of Israel, the CIA and a group claiming to be Al Qaeda.

Tunisians Overthrow 23 years of dictatorship

The regime of Ben Ali couldn’t stand in the way of the Tunisians once they have decided –as a united nation- to overthrow him and start anew with dignity and equality that they have been denied for a long time. While the whole world was literally watching, Tunisia has earned the right to start anew as real democracy.
