Cheering the Bombing of Yemenis; Denying the Armenian Genocide (Massoud Malek, USA, 04/25/15 3:25 am)

Today Saudi Arabia is bombing the poorest country and one of the most ancient cradles of civilization.

From a very young age, students in Saudi Arabia are taught that Shiites are not Muslims and that Shiism is a conspiracy hatched by the Jews, and so Shiites are worthy of death. Government Wahhabi scholars have proclaimed on state radio that Sunni Muslims must not "eat their [Shia] food, marry from them, or bury their dead in Muslims' graveyards." This prejudice is found not only in textbooks (often characterizing the faith as a form of heresy worse than Christianity and Judaism), but also within the teachers in the classroom, and even in the university setting.


The bombing of Yemen has nothing to do with reinstalling Mansur Hadi as the president of Yemen. They know that a population that is discriminately bombed would never accept someone who caused the killings. The purpose of the bombing is to tell their Shia population (15%) who reject the Saudi's apartheid regime that they must accept the socioeconomic deprivation and religious repression and apartheid.

This week, Armenians from around the world are commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the systematic killing of nearly 1.5 million Christian Armenians. Much of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire were nearly wiped out, because Christians were not considered equals to Muslims.

America, the land of Jefferson, Lincoln, and Martin Luther King, is considered by almost the entire population of the planet as the symbol of freedom and fairness. But today, its government is cheering the bombing of Yemenis by Saudis and denying the Armenian genocide, just to please the Saudis and the Turkish population. Imagine denying the Holocaust just to please Neo-Fascists.

In 2007, Turkey recalled its ambassador to the United States after the House Committee on Foreign Affairs passed a United States resolution on the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire. This resulted in a delay of a full House vote on Res. 106. Speaker Pelosi pledged to bring the resolution to a full vote, but pressure from the White House and Turkey kept her from doing so.


Are Jews guilty of creating Shiism? Are Christians inferior to Muslims?

JE comments:  I've always been curious:  are Shiites segregated or otherwise discriminated against during the hajj?  

Like his predecessors, President Obama has never used the "G-word" (genocide) to refer to the Armenian Holocaust, preferring not to enrage the Turkish government.  Pope Francis recently spoke of the genocide, and Turkey has called in the Vatican representative for "consultation."

Greetings to WAISdom from colleague Sasha Pack's home in Buffalo, New York.  Yesterday evening I had the chance to meet both Sasha and Ángel Viñas, who gave an excellent talk at the University of Buffalo on challenges facing the EU today.  Ángel's paper will be appearing on WAIS soon.

  • Bombing of Yemenis...and Others (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy 04/25/15 6:52 AM)
    I wish to applaud to Massoud Malek for his post of 25 April.

    However I'd like to make a small correction.

    Massoud wrote: "[The Yemenis] know that a population that is discriminately bombed would never accept someone who caused the killing."

    This is historically absolutely wrong. In fact Italy, Germany and Japan have accepted being "colonies" by those who bombed them.

    But, and I'm aware that I'm repeating myself, this is due to the excellent brainwashing conducted by the Psychological Warfare Department and, why not, by Hollywood with its foolish "historical" movies.

    Furthermore the above countries, after seventy years, are still occupied by the Armed Forces of the Empire. When a nation has foreign troops on its soil it cannot be free and independent, no matter how benevolent the occupiers might be.

    By the way the Italian PM Renzi in his last visit to the Capital has obeyed the Emperor and assured that Italy will maintain its troops in Afghanistan (and elsewhere), contrary to its interests, even after 2015.

    JE comments: By the Capital and the Emperor Eugenio Battaglia means Washington and Obama. A few years ago I invited Italy to send its troops to occupy Greater Detroit. I'm not legally empowered to make the offer, but I still believe it would bring more prosperity (and better food) to our region.
