The Norway Manifesto: A New Bin Laden Is Born


“The Norway massacre: Is it a coincidence, is it another 9/11 or is it something that has been brewing for years now and nobody took notice of or saw it coming?”

“The termination of Bin Laden was not the end of this madness; rather it was only the beginning.”

Oslo Bombing and old shadows of 9/11

 Is it a coincidence that the Norway attacks came after almost ten years have passed since the similarly horrific attacks on the towers of the world trade center in new York back in 2001 or what has been known in contemporary history as the 9/11 attacks.

 As the world was getting prepared to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the New York attacks and as the world was recovering from the 9/11 trauma and about to leave its heavy and gloomy memories behind and never look back again we wake up to this painfully reminder of 9/11.

Is it a coincidence, is it another 9/11 or is it something that has been brewing for years now and nobody took notice of or saw it coming?

Remembering 9/11

 

9/11 attacks in New York, 2001

I still remember the whole world shocked and grieved by the size and the magnitude of destruction and the killing of the 3000 innocent New Yorkers but as the towers were crumbling down like a house of cards a gigantic question mark instantly stood in its place amongst the falling debris and descending ashes begging an answer as to why and who did this atrocious mass murder and destruction.

A great part of the relief from grief and pain is to know the reason that threw you in the depth of tribulation and to discover who caused you this agonizing misery. The moment you reveal the mystery behind the abhorrent crime is the moment your tears start to flow down from their springs washing away some of the pain and the bitterness left inside.

This moment of transient relief and solace was endowed upon the grieving people of the United States when the hardly vigilant administration of former president Bush delivered the Americans and the whole world out of their misery and bewilderment and hastily announced that the 9/11 atrocities had been planned and carried out by a bunch of Muslim fanatics, not more than 20 perpetrators, who had been active members in an international terrorist organization that acted around the globe under the leadership of Osama Bin Laden, some cave dweller in Afghanistan, who used to be a CIA operative during the soviet war there and who only excelled in growing a beard and videotaping ranting speeches.

“You’re either with us or against us”

 

9/11 was an unprecedented terrorist operation, sophisticated like we have never seen before in modern times and a lot of honest and truth seeking experts of military, architecture, politics, engineering, firefighting, aviation and chemistry attested to the fact, and some of them even proved, that 9/11 attacks were carried out by some covert agencies backed up by on ground assistance.

In short, the experts and the intellectuals envisioned 9/11 as a false flag operation, one of the biggest ever till now, that meant to launch a worldwide anti- Muslim aggressive campaign that would only benefit the country that has been in conflict with the Arab and Muslim world for sixty years now and who knows for how many more years to come.

But the common people who don’t like sophisticated answers and brainstorming theories and who are used to the fast/junk food culture settled for the delivered to their doorsteps readymade- answer sent directly from the white house kitchen with the compliments of the Zionist chef and his neoconservative staff.

And that answer was eloquently summed up by the reckless former president bush, when he stated the rules of the America & allies’ new game with the axis of evil and announced with a smirky face and a sarcastic tone of voice you’re either with us, or against us” thus giving the launching signal not only for his stupid war of terror but for an upcoming era of worldwide tide of fundamentalism.

The moment people around the world especially in the United States and Europe bought into this story, as they sat glued to their TV screens like hypnotized couch potatoes, is the moment this whole madness and islamophobia started.

Former President Bush

The moment the people believed this cover-up and wicked to the bone story is the moment that gave the carte blanche for ten years of absolute political absurdity and military criminality … but most dangerously to the sprouting of religious fundamentalism and ideological terrorism.

The United States cluelessly pointed the finger at Bin Laden and his extremist interpretation of Islam nailing him for 9/11 but nevertheless let him on the loose for like ten years during which all the unbelievable political and military transgressions were committed.

Ten years of extreme right wing and Murdoch style mainstream media craze that kept hitting the target of tarnishing the Islam image irreparably amongst westerners- clearly exposing that this was the real tactical goal of the war on terrorism.

Ten years of meaningless military operations in Muslim countries that never posed a threat to the United States but what does it matter and why should anyone care as long as they were on the Israeli hit list.

 

Ten years during which the western public opinion has been fed with a constant and highly selective stories and headlines of Muslim suicide bombers, Bin laden fake videos and audiotapes, Muslim women wearing burqa in Afghanistan and banned from driving cars in Saudi Arabia, Ground Zero mosque hysteria, Iran nuclear overestimated threat, churches attacked in Egypt, Niqab banned in France and minarets in Switzerland, Hamas firing rockets at Israeli towns and school buses, Quran burned in America, al Qaeda affiliates in Iraq and the Arab peninsula, enforcement of sharia law and the eminent danger of the jihadists on the west, the perilous rise of political Islam in the Arab world and finally the official announcement of the failure of multiculturalism in Europe.

  

Where can we go from there?

 

The Great Israel landgrab.

When the forces of globalization have swept across the world, when the giant corporations have controlled the media and intoxicated the socio-political environment with right wing extremism and flooded the world with firearms and violent video games that turned our young generations into addicts of adrenaline boosting scenes of cold blooded murder with automatic gun machines… where can we go from there?When the politicians of the so called free world community stand impotent and helpless in front of the might of the Israeli piecemeal ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians and let this festering wound to grow bigger and smell fouler as it divides the world into two antagonistic and hopelessly incompatible camps … where can we go from there?

When we sharpen the human appetite for blood and revenge with all these false flag operations and Zionist-infiltrated media, when we drag the supposed to be civilized world into some eternal war that knew no frontiers and no tangible objectives in the name of fighting terror, and when those politicians who started this global war foolishly define it as a new crusade … where can we go from there.

Bin Laden, when the story ends?

When we instill interfaith hatred, infuse an ambiance of vulnerability and build antagonistic egos in the size of cathedrals and mosques … where we can go from there.When we ingrain those horrifying sketches of an enemy hiding explosives in his most intimate parts of his body, willing to blow himself up provided that he would not leave the world unless accompanied by a few westerners … and when we remove the faces of all Muslims and put Bin Laden’s instead … where can we go from there?

A new bin laden is born

 

And When it was finally time to terminate the world’s most wanted man, it only took the white house a small unit of special forces, and not the whole US led international troops, to raid on his hideout in Pakistan and give him the surprise of hislife time while he was feeding his chickens and watching the news of the American war on the terrorism in which he played no bigger role than the moron whom he and his so called mujahedeen had been played like puppets from afar by some remote control.

 
Anders Behring Breivik

… And when the game was over, all it took was a small click on a button, a dignified- mafia style burial in the bottom of the sea … but as the CIA was doing its cleanup job after they dumped the Bin Laden they made, little did they know what future held for them. They had no idea as they were licking their fingers clean that somehow, somewhere; a new Bin Laden was born.

The termination of Bin Laden was not the end of this madness; rather it was only the beginning.

When the so called world community embarks on a war against some staged terrorism, when this world community is tricked into unjustified world conflict we are bound to end up with a precarious situation where we will wake up one day not only morally and economically bankrupt but with a genuinely horrific terrorist attack in one of the world’s quietest and most peaceful backyards.

Norwegians in mourning

But this time it was not some cave dweller Muslim militant who suspiciously carried it out but the monstrous anti-hero this whole farcical war on terror has cruelly created.

It’s going to take the Norwegians a long time to figure out why this massacre took place on their land that annually tossed out to the world one of its Nobel peace prizes … but the long search will undoubtedly and eventually take them back to 9/11 mystery and the pathetic war on terrorism they foolishly took part in.

I think we can declare the war on terrorism has finally come to its fruition, now that the west is officially at war with Islam.

The Neocons& Zionist club has every right to rejoice, the world is being driven blindfolded into the dark abyss of intolerance and fundamentalism.

…. And as the mass murderer, Anders Behring Breivik has brazenly described his massacre  it is atrocious, but necessary

… Where can we go from there … ?

Ground Zero mosque is not at Ground Zero and not a mosque


By Dr. Ashraf Ezzat

After 9/11 attacks, islamophobia began to take shape in the collective consciousness of the American and western general public.

But for the American Muslims it was a lot more than viewing this antipathy on TV, they were living it, day in and day out. 

Islamophobia

 

Exchange among civilizations is a tremendous source for the creation of value and most of all, the value of diversity and tolerance.

 Human history is replete with disasters brought about by attitudes of arrogance and superiority complex based on race, color, language and religious affiliation. And the latter has been the example of the latest uproar over what is called Ground zero mosque in lower Manhattan, New York.

 The New York Landmarks Preservation commission on Tuesday denied landmark status to a building near the World Trade Center site, freeing a group to convert the property into an Islamic community center and mosque that has drawn national opposition.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted 9-0, saying the 152-year-old building – two blocks from the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks -wasn’t special or distinctive enough to meet criteria to qualify as a landmark

Thus the Islamic community that hopes to build a $100 million mosque and Islamic center near Ground Zero has cleared an important hurdle – the legal approval to build on the site. But they still have to overcome a fierce and seemingly insurmountable hurdle which is the growing American antipathy toward the so called Ground Zero mosque.

What makes the problem almost insurmountable is the deeply and painfully misconceived history upon which it has to stand.

 In the opponents view, building a mosque so close to the site of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center disrespects the memory of those killed. Supporters of the plan argue that building the center and mosque would be the ultimate test of the nation’s commitment to tolerance and religious freedom.

 Mayor Michael Bloomberg underscored this freedom in a passionate defense of the center this week: “The World Trade Center site will forever hold a special place in our city, in our hearts. But we would be untrue to the best part of ourselves and who we are as New Yorkers and Americans if we said no to a mosque in lower Manhattan. Any way, the emotions this debate has ignited are intense and contradictory.

National and New York politicians and public protestors have come out in recent weeks against plans for the mosque, saying that pushing to build a conspicuous Muslim institution near this site demonstrates a profound lack of emotional intelligence and understanding of the raw emotions that are the legacy of the terrorist attacks.

Rationalization of bigotry.

Honest American citizens, who have come to know pure demagoguery when they hear it, have lately had, plenty of practice, listening to what opponents of the mosque project had to say.

First, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, have argued against a mosque being so close to the scene of the nation’s worst terrorist attack. And added that, it would only lead to unnecessary provocation.

Mark Williams, chairman of the Tea Party Express, blogged about the 13-story mosque and Islamic cultural center planned at Park Place and Broadway, calling it a monument to the 9/11 terrorists.

The Anti-Defamation League, an organization that battles anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry, in a contradicting statement, is asking that the Islamic centre and mosque be built farther away from ground zero in consideration of families who lost loved ones during the Sep 11, 2001 attacks.

Meanwhile, in a statement that reflected the ultimate demagoguery, Republican running for Governor Carl Paladino released a video statement on Monday saying he would stop the mosque if he was elected.

The real reason behind the debate over Ground Zero mosque

 

 “We had Islamic fundamentalists who killed 3,000 people at the World Trade Center site and are trying to kill more since then, so to have a Mosque at that site will stir up feelings – and antagonistic ones,” says Douglas Muzzio, a professor of political science at Baruch College in New York. in this statement, Prof. Muzzio simply summarized the problem behind the furious debate on this mosque issue.

People are against this project, not because it is at Ground Zero, but simply because Muslims are behind it. And Muslims – in the back of the Americans` mind – are considered the perpetrators of the 9/11 atrocities.Terrorism is not an ideology, it is a tool; but the terrorists kill for an ideology. They call that ideology Islam. This is the direct message that the mainstream media insisted on delivering in the aftermath of 9/11.

9/11 terrorist attacks.

The American public did not bother to question this weird narrative. A terrified post 9/11 public needed a suspect, a villain to point the finger at, and that evil force that aimed to destroy America was already tailored and prepared- in the white house political kitchen – as Islam.

Thus with the 9/11 attacks a new era of growing antagonism to other creed began to emerge in a way never witnessed since the fall of communism, and islamophobia began to take shape in the collective consciousness of the American and western general public.

It is not at Ground zero and it is not a mosque.

 

To be accurate the Ground Zero mosque is not at Ground Zero. It’s near Ground Zero; leaving out the “near” clearly takes sides — against the “mosque” and against accuracy.

 And furthermore, it is not a mosque, it is designed and planned to function as an Islamic cultural center under the label of Cordoba House Islamic cultural center (which is to include a prayer room — not a single-purpose house of worship for Muslims, which is probably what we should reserve the word “mosque” for.)

There’s no good reason why Cordoba House should be misleadingly called a “mosque. . It is designed as a multi-use complex with a space set aside for prayer — no minarets, no muezzin calls to prayer blaring onto Park Place.”

The world Muslim community numbers about 1.57 billion people, roughly one-fifth of the world population.

 This community has to do their Friday prayer, gathered together in a house for prayer. Giving the knowledge that, an average mosque could accommodate around 200 people. How many mosques- in your opinion- should be built for the Muslims around the world?

 If we do math, we will find that the Muslims are in need of a scary number of mosques to enable them to perform their prayer. But honestly speaking, this represents no problem at all to the Muslims.

 For the Muslims, the earth is a big mosque, a Muslim can do his prayer rituals anywhere, in the open air or in a room, in land or at sea, standing or sitting and if he cannot move at all he could do it with his heart.

It’s not unfamiliar scene to watch the Muslims all around the world gathered in hundreds and thousands in the open air performing prayer and dispersing soon after they finish, leaving the place as it was before.

And if that is the case, then why the American Muslim community insists on building what the media called “Ground Zero mosque”. I think it is obvious now that they want to build something a lot more than a simple mosque, something they really need, something that is worth more than $ 100 million  and worthy of all the hardship they have to endure to make this dream like project come true.

The need to prove the obvious

 

The Manhattan project is being spearheaded by the Cordoba Initiative and the American Society for Muslim Advancement. In other words, the American Muslim community.

The American Muslims were terribly affected by the attacks of 9/11; Muslims around the world had been troubled by the irritating and somehow indirect accusation of Islam, as a doctrine promoting terror and intolerance.

 All the world Muslim community could get a glimpse of that growing western antipathy toward them through reading the daily papers and watching the news on TV screens. But for the American Muslims it was a lot more than viewing this antipathy on TV, they were living it, day in and day out.

And though 40 to 50 of the 9/11 victims were American Muslims, and though Muslims in America grieved with their fellow Americans. Still they couldn’t escape the stereotyping of all Muslims that was underway.

What is also clear is that any personal antipathy toward any given person ought not predispose us to assume that he is guilty. But the American Muslims were predisposed to feel suspects ever since 9/11.

 The American Muslims knew for a fact, as president bush once said that, on 9/11, Islam had been high jacked by a bunch of crazy fanatics who happened to claim adherence to Islam.

The American community couldn’t live with this growing feeling of not belonging as they watched the post -9/11 proliferating xenophobia.

The address of the Cordoba center.

The American Muslims had to do something to change this negative attitude, they had to stand out from the mainstream and risk their comfort and maybe their reputation to defend what ought to be taken for granted, They had to convince the media and political establishment, and even the general public, that Islam did not attack the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, sick and twisted men did. They had to persuade them that it is unfair and even harmful to feel this antagonist way about a great culture and turn a blind eye to the valuable contributions of Islam to the world civilization throughout history.

 They had to establish this “Cordoba cultural center” to initiate an interfaith and intercultural dialogue aimed at redefining Islam to the Americans. And putting an end to the absurd and deliberate scheme that helped characterize and link Islam and Muslims to terror.

 And as Thomas L. Friedman, the New York columnist described opposition to this project as “resistance to diversity.”The proposed Islamic center should be considered as a symbol of tolerance in a free society. Only in such way, the building of the so called Ground Zero mosque could make a statement.

Civilizations have met, interacted and transacted with one another throughout history. The meeting of civilizations was not always a smooth phenomenon. But it always proved a worthy endeavor.
