ArabNews: Global Supremacy Pushing in Variant Forms
Trying to follow the bizarre twists and turns of this anti-American, pro-jihad piece in the Arab News may give you a headache, but it’s a revealing look at the “thinking” of the Saudi entity. The cognitive gymnastics begin with the title: A Global Supremacy Pushing in Variant Forms.
Dr. Mariam Al-Oraifi, an “academic” educated in Australia, informs us that there is no problem with Islamic fundamentalism and tyrant regimes in the Middle East. The real “monster behind Sept. 11” is … United States policies.
Today the world questions America’s approach to the region and insistence on global democracy. The international community disagrees with America’s self-appointed police role and guarantor of these natural rights. They believe that the only logical sponsor and guarantor of these natural rights is the UN. They want to see the UN strengthened, not weakened.
America’s claim to sponsorship of freedom, liberty and democracy has been the Sept. 11 attacks and the war on terrorism. But the monster behind Sept. 11 is neither Islamic fundamentalism nor tyrant regimes. It is simply an overdated and obsolete US policy that is meeting with popular resistance in the region.
The people in the region are not enemies of America but simply peace-loving citizens who have suffered and have decided to change their future. America should avoid meddling with the internal affairs of the Gulf states. Instead there should be an open dialogue with the people of the region on future energy problems and negotiations with oil producing countries in the Gulf and elsewhere to solve such problems.
Notice the incredible similarity between the disjointed ravings of this Saudi mouthpiece and the anti-American poses of our own academics, like Ward Churchill and Robert Jensen. The far left and the Islamic fanatics are on the same page.
