The Problem is Hate :: Muslim World
things we never talk about and should
A review of some basic facts that I have written about before. This stuff is important and so worth repeating. Also I had a big nap when I should have been writing.
The fact that the British Empire outlived the Ottoman empire doesn’t mean that the British had anything substantial to do with the collapse of the Ottomans. Even a brief glance at history will show that the Ottoman Empire imploded, and that it collapsed on its own political instability that rendered it unable to rule, not any European Boogeyman.
The Arab leadership absolutely sympathised AND collaborated with the Nazi regime. Yes, the whole world did when we blocked Jewish immigration and caused more Jewish people to go to their deaths because they could not escape the genocidal regime. More than that, Arab leadership helped disseminate Goebbels propaganda to Egypt + North Africa—that’s complicity. In the post WW2 era Nasser welcomed many Nazis into Egypt and allowed them to influence policy and manipulate information dissemination and shape security/police training, including the Palestinian liberation movement.
Palestinian became a clever word Arab nationalists used to promote hatred of Jews. Mufti Amin al-Husayni, the father of Palestinian nationalism, met both Hitler and Himmler and facilitated the widespread promotion of nazi propaganda throughout the middle east region. As mentioned above, Nasser provided a haven for Nazis in Egypt and our supposed peace hero Anwar Sadat was in Nasser’s inner political circle.
Arab leadership thwarted a peaceful resolution at every turn since the collapse of the empire. Factional infighting, ethnic cleansing, rising authoritarianism to fill the leadership vacuum, occidentalism to feed populism—all these forces detracted from nation-building of a free + innovative peoples. Neither the British nor the Israelis nor anyone but the ones who chose + promoted + served + benefited from the sh1tty leadership are responsible for the current situation.
The entire problem seems to be that many people hate Jews. What else do we call it when the people choose leadership that espouses hatred of and a desire to destroy Jews? This is the eternal fcuking problem. Look, muppets, we in the west that you hate so much are still living in the long shadow of a genocidal regime that sought to solve it’s sociopolitical problems by destroying Jewish people—we aren’t indulging remnants of that.
