...All of the above developments [the West's decline; Turkey's ascendancy] have surfaced in the last three decades of Islamic self-determination, centered around the Islamic Republic of Iran. Those who cannot stomach this fact can go fly a kite. In the midst of these wide-ranging tectonic shifts the Islamic Republic and its leadership had to prioritize the home front where there are still forces that are either absentminded to the larger world outside their country or are too domestic and selfish to carry on with the objectives of their country’s Islamic orientation. Ethnic and sectarian factors rank high on the scale of priorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran, a fact that is currently on the political and military drawing boards of the failing kingdoms and republics surrounding Islamic Iran.Memo to Abu Dharr: go fly a kite--and don't come back.
This takes us from global developments and trends that were and still are concerned with destabilizing and destroying a truly independent and popular expression of Islamic self-determination to the regional forces and factions that are now working in tandem to turn the clock back to the years before Imam Khomeini and before the Islamic Revolution.
What do we have in this pathetic morass of political Arabian slaves? We have what amounts to around $130 billion going from weapons consumers in Arabia to weapons manufacturers in the US and Europe. One is forced to ask: for what? For more wars and more bloodshed by Muslims against Muslims. We all dream for a day when all this money is invested in economic infrastructure development, scientific research academies, the blooming of the desert, and even in acquiring a formidable military industry so that Muslims are no longer dependent on kafirs for their arms, weapons, and munitions. This past month, 19 anti-Islamic ruled militaries began one of the largest military exercises, called “Eager Lion,” ever in the Muslim East. They all coordinated their multinational forces on Jordanian territory in close proximity to Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq. They were assigned mock operations against chemical, biological, and guerilla warfare. A person who thinks straight cannot exclude the strong inference that the Islamic Republic of Iran is their ultimate strategic objective with Syria as a tactical necessity along the way.
Dare anyone in the speaking class of Arabian officialdom suggest that such a military exercise is necessary against Israel? Isn’t it Israel that has poisoned the politics of the entire region? Isn’t it Israel that has forced millions of Palestinians into their “hell on earth”, either under an expansionist and destructive occupation, or into an oppressive and unrelenting exile in foreign lands? Isn’t it Israel that has built segregationist walls and enacted racist policies against the natives of Palestine? Isn’t it Israel that is occupying and Judaizing al-Quds (Jerusalem), against all interpretations of international laws and the rights of peoples? Why is this unprecedented military exercise that has combined the forces of 19 military establishments conducting these exercises adjacent to the Syrian borders and not adjacent to the Saudi or Israeli borders?
There have been three demonstrated ways of getting rid of dictatorships in the Muslim East. The first one is the direct American school of regime change. This has been demonstrated in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. The direct American intervention for regime change came with B-52 bombers, drones, an army of local intelligence, civilian, and para-military agents. The victims are in the millions in all these three theaters: Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Washington and its frustrated allies said that their objective is democracy! There is as much democracy in these countries now as there is in kufristan...

Shilling for Shaytan
Writing in the June issue of Khomeinist rag, Crescent International, a bloke named Abu Dharr (one of daffy Zaffy Bangash's compadres) announces, triumphally and--go figure--somewhat Steynily--that Europe and America are kaput, as is Israel. That's because they side with "Shaytan," the old devil. Dharr also has very few kind words for Great Shaytan's "Arabian slaves." He has nothing but the highest praise, though, for the guy who, objectively speaking, is the real Shaytan, i.e. the demented Ayatollah whose revolution aims, ultimately, to bring about Armageddon:
