A Revolution Too Late?
I never got a chance to publish this but I think its just as relevent today as it was on January 27th. enjoy!
The protest videos eerily resemble the protests in Tunisia which toppled their 23 year dictatorship headed by the exiled Zine Al-Abedine Ben Ali. Since the start of this revolutionary wave by Tunisia, one thing has stuck in the back of my mind. Could this be true? First Tunisia, then Algeria, then Egypt, Yemen, Jordan, Libya, Mauritania, what exactly is going on? Why after 23 years with Ben Ali, 30 years with Mubarak, why after 42 years of rule by Muammar Gaddafi are the people just starting to begin to rise up?
The reason this all started is not because of unemployment or high prices. Yes, the Arab countries have a very, very high unemployment rate with Libya nearly 30% and the rest of the Arab countries in the 10% range. Yes, people can’t afford to buy food or have decent home. If this was the case, these countries would have revolted long ago. Why wait 30 years? How could anyone possibly live under those conditions for 42 years, half a lifetime, and not lift a finger or raise a voice?
This all started because someone lit himself on fire. Then, someone else lit himself on fire. After that, 7 people lit themselves on fire. At first I thought, “the poor man couldn’t handle it any longer, he had nothing left.” but when everyone started copying…….that’s what got me worried. These are Arab countries with Islam being practiced by the majority. It is a horrible sin to commit suicide in Islam, as it is the same for Christianity. It was better for these people to fight and die for their people, their country, and their freedom that to light themselves on fire.
Was it better that they kill themselves than kill other people? Yes. Was it better that they kill themselves and leave their brothers and sisters to fight for their freedom and their rights as human beings? Absolutely not! Ladies and gentlemen, I am worried. I always thought and knew with confidence that the Arab people would never run a successful revolution. The day the Tunisians revolted, I thought I was wrong. Now, I’m starting to think I was right.
Tunisia and Egypt are American backed countries and yet America has silently stood buy. If they are American backed countries that means America has some sort of involvement. What kind of involvement, military, espionage, economic, political? Who knows, but we can assume that America has some sort of presence. The basics of a revolution are as follows:
1.Ruler treats people bad, unemployment, no food/water, no housing, etc.
2. people demand change
3. change does not come so people protest
4. Ruler tries to quill protest by shooting people and asserting his power
5. people get even more angry and kick ruler out
6. new ruler takes charge
Now, the people can either bring in this new ruler or the army can stage a coup. We know obviously that all of the dictators in the Middle eastern/ Arab countries are puppets. In other words, people control them, tell them what to do, they tell them when to leave and they tell them when to come. What would happen if the old ruler did all of the above on purpose. When the people revolted he left and the “new” leader was ready to take charge after the smoke cleared but all along this “new” leader was put in by the same people who put the old leader in his place.
What I’m trying to say is that this could be the “Arab Union.” We have the European Union, African Union, and the Arab League. Remember how the United nations started? It was first the League of Nations after WWII and then formed into what is now today the United Nations. The Arab League could very easily follow that path. Which would then only leave is with the Asian Union, North American Union, South American Union and a clever solution for Russia and central Asia.
Honestly speaking I don’t how this will turn out but it seems that this could be a step towards an Arab Union or some sort of fake khilafa. This of course can’t happen overnight, this is but a small step in a direction of which I have no idea but can only speculate the possibilities using the process of elimination.
Do your own research, monitor this situation yourselves and let me know what you find.
