Hariri: Hot Diary of an Affair!
from !-Mad - 21.02.2005 20:44
I have known Rafik Al Hariri for quite some years now. Our acquaintance involved a lot of physical interaction and deep-throat cries! He is much older than me, but our relation deepened beyond belief. I was obsessed by him, and where ever I went... I sabotaged his pictures.

Well.... good morning! Better late than never!
I wonder... can you afford a glass of water in down town Beirut?
Anti-Lahoud re-election! Syria Out 3/9/04. Where were the thousands?
Solidarity with you, reconstructors of the world! Hey El Selloum "rioters"!
I have been beaten by his men, arrested by his police, teargassed, water-cannoned and smothered by his “riot” control! I have held banners against his policies, demanded his dismissal from office, refused to collaborate or even be seen next to any of his followers, took non-violent direct actions against his projects, policies... and presence – I was not alone; I was/still am one of many. Today I am outraged!
Today I´m struck by grief and shock to the way he got assassinated... “We” have lost an Exploiter to the hands of a bigger one! Today I wish like never before to be in Beirut, beside those loved ones, those exploited and eaten alive. In Beirut among those thousands of people marching down the streets... among the very few of them who are tearing down his pictures and spraying a series of big Nos!
No to assassinations, to hegemony, to occupation, to the World Bank, to debt, to all factions and partisans of the Lebanese mainstream political spectrum, to blinded reactionaries, to free trade, to discrimination, to neo-liberal policies... to capitalism... the list never ends!
AL Jazeera wrote on their website:
“A huge car bomb on Monday killed Lebanon's former prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri, a businessman turned politician who masterminded the country's reconstruction after its 1975-90 civil war... At least 12 others, including several of al-Hariri's bodyguards, died when his motorcade was blown up as it passed through an upmarket section of Beirut's seafront, four months after he resigned as prime minister.
Former economy minister Basil Fulaihan, also riding in the convoy, was critically wounded. At least 100 other people were hurt, officials said...
Al-Hariri had remained politically influential since his resignation and recently joined opposition calls for Syrian troops to quit Lebanon in the run-up to a May general election...
Beirut was often rocked by car bombs during the civil war, when fighting among religious and political factions all but tore Lebanon apart. But they have been rare since then.
Al-Hariri, 60, had held office for most of the past 12 years before quitting in October 2004 amid a bitter rift with Lahud.
The Sunni Muslim al-Hariri spent some 20 years in Saudi Arabia, where construction deals made him a fortune that Forbes estimated at $3.8 billion in 2003.
In 1977, he struck gold when he took up the challenge of building in just six months a palace for the late Saudi king Khalid in the resort of Taif before an Islamic summit, as a sub-contractor for Oger, an affiliate of a French group.
Al-Hariri won the confidence of then-crown prince Fahd, now Saudi Arabia's king, and was awarded the rare privilege of Saudi nationality.
He then went on to become Saudi Arabia's leading entrepreneur, acquiring Oger in 1979 and founding Oger International, based in Paris.
Al-Hariri's interests extended across banking, real estate, oil, industry and telecommunications.
He founded a television station, Future TV, in Beirut and purchased stakes in several Lebanese newspapers.
He was the biggest shareholder in Solidere, the joint-stock company that sent bulldozers to revive central Beirut after Lebanon's 15-year civil war.
But politics remained a fixation for the burly businessman. In 1982, he donated $12 million to Lebanese victims of Israel's devastating invasion and helped clean up Beirut streets with his own money.
Al-Hariri also used his personal wealth to finance the Taif national reconciliation accords in 1989 which put an end to the civil war.
The Sunni Muslim was back in power in 2000 after a landslide election victory as many Lebanese saw no alternative to reversing an economic slide that worsened in his absence. But optimism about the businessman's ability to resurrect Lebanon as a financial and tourism hub was tempered by the mounting number of battles fought with Lahud loyalists over privatisation and other cost-cutting plans.
When Lebanon faced a financial crisis in 2002, al-Hariri persuaded France to host an international summit of lenders who pledged enough cash to avert a meltdown.
The construction tycoon's ties with European, Asian and Arab leaders helped keep Lebanon out of an abyss of debt run up during efforts to rebuild Beirut, including an expensive downtown area that rose from the ruins to become top-end property hawked by a company al-Hariri largely owned.
Businessmen praised him for cutting through a paralysed Lebanese state bureaucracy and rebuilding war-shattered Beirut.
But hopes that an economic renaissance would flower with a Middle East peace process wilted with it instead. ”(http://english.aljazeera.net/)
This is what Al Jazeera wrote about former prime minister Hariri after his assassination besides the fact that French president Jacques Chirac visited Beirut to pay respect and condolences to Hariri's family emphasizing the close friendship, being the only state president taking part in the mourning day of the funeral and visiting the grave. This was the most accessible detailed Arab coverage of the assassination in English I could find. Media in Lebanon all cried against Syrian occupation, some bluntly, some more diplomatically and “politely”.
Tens of thousands of people took to their streets their anger, grieve and demands. All asking for a withdrawal of Syrian troops and hegemony of Lebanon. People that I have known for years and who took no part in political activism were on the street taking part in the funeral/demo and laying flowers at Hariri's grave in downtown Beirut.
Just there, few meters away from where we had the open sit-in for 45 days organized by independent activists and groups in solidarity with Palestinians under Israeli crimes in 2002. A sit-in that was a landmark in the Lebanese anti-war anti-capitalist movement, a womb for IMC Beirut, Al Yasari (an independent leftist underground publication), No War No Dictatorship campaign, the campaign to Boycott Companies Supporting Israel, the Leftist Platform, a series of high profile actions and demos ...etc. Let alone being the first extensive experience in autonomous horizontal self-organization in Lebanon. All this was happening few years ago, very few meters away from where Hariri's body lay today, and with few activists who rejected Hariri's policies, while residents of Beirut – mourners of today, whizzed in their cars towards the first warm restaurant. My friends never went there before... but they did few days ago to lay flowers on Hariri's grave and scream “Syria out now”, and “We do not want a parliament that is a doorman for Syria”... waving his pictures and flapping Lebanese flags with banners reading “enough”.
Friends that never believed in any protest or action, let alone believe in the need to change things were now protesting against such a high profile issue as Syrian occupation of Lebanon. An issue that even the most radical of activists thought twice before tackeling. Out of a sudden, everyone is empowered. What did it take? An aggravated tragedy.
Friends that always praised the amount of democracy we enjoy in Lebanon compared to the rest of our “regressive” Arab neighbors - “for fuck's sake movies get launched in Lebanon at same time as Europe” ... let alone the long discussion about the quantity of quality resorts, night life and artistic entertainment.
Talking to my mom - a mother - over the phone she sounded devastated. She was never a fan of Hariri nor his politics but the images of the bomb were reminiscent of so many bad civil-war memories. She never liked him, but she never wished him dead. She blamed him for many of our economical problems, but she never believed that he can be over thrown. And there she was infront of the TV, her worst nightmare got wiped out with a bigger one... rather a catastrophe!
My first reaction was a smile and taking it for a joke. Of course not! Hariri have so much money and so much power... let alone a top notch security shield. I remember my mobile phone going off network when his convoy passes by. The convoy cars were fully armored and protected (and of course he afforded the top of the line)... so no way it can happen! But still, all media reported it and showed pictures of him on a stretcher completely burned out. One of the big puppets in the hands of the capitalist system was put to a stop, but the way was worse than anyone can imagine. Shock, confusion, anger and disbelief! Who did it? Why? Why now? How? How strong are they? How far can they go? Who are they? What can we do? Who are we?
After the shock faded, I started following the on-line media religiously, sometimes pressing the Refresh icon endlessly without stopping. I was eager to read everything, to know as much as possible, to try to understand. Years ago I learnt about a ruthless system, but here I am again seeing its ruthless power in action, seeing authority and the system that “we” all believe in failing us again. And again, I see “us” waving flags and repeating the same old broken record. Even “our” grief is imported and copied for the eyes of the media. Rejecting violence and fucked up politics tuned into a reactionary wave condoning Hariri policies, even portraying Hariri as a national hero!. I heard people going “yeah he fucked the country up, but now he portrays something, he said no to Syria! He became a symbol of our freedom”
Hariri was responsible of a deteriorating economical situation and a continuous exploitation of a wide sector of the Lebanese society. He masterminded the “reconstruction” of Beirut central district... or Solidere.
Solidere is what some people use to refer to down town Beirut. It is not an arabic word, and it is not the name of the area.
Solidere is a Hariri-owned company, with some small-fish shareholders. It drove people out from Beirut down town by either petty money, or state force (sometimes extra non-governmental intimidation) and took over their property. All of Beirut central district now, including Martyr's Square is owned by Solidere. Funny, ha? Solidere owns a public square, imagine if Solidere wanted by its lawful right to fence downtown Beirut!
Well it did, in many cases we were asked not to gather/ protest in that “public square” cause it is a private property and does not even lie under the authority of the municipality. You can only go there if you are dressed in a certain way – few reported cases of people being asked to leave the “property” else remove their kufiahs. It is a place for everyone, except those living with a limitted income or under poverty line... more accuratly 60% or more of the population.
To make it funnier, the Lebanese parliament lies at the heart of this “property”... and even more, the Italian embassy, the British embassy, the Spanish Cervantes,... and the United Nations House. All this were more parking lots are rising and more bourgeoisie apartments and big corporations are taking bigger shapes. Where the rosey and velvety society of Lebanon have itself some fun and "democracy".
The area is sealed by Lebanese army on all ends, and in some past cases they shut down the whole area even in the face of journalists (a recent case was the peaceful anti-capital punishment protest http://www.beirut.indymedia.org/ar/2004/01/908.shtml). The army reportedly denied individuals to access the area... Hariri's area.
Hariri indulged in continuous debts, and some grants to Lebanon's “reconstruction”. We got “reconstructed”... we have the best highways now, a top notch first class airport, a source-of-pride stadium, and all multi-nationals you can dream off. Unemployment rates increased and prices soared higher. It was not only the movies, a beer in a Beirut Downtown pubs can cost you more than one in London... further “civilization” was introduced, a democracy of the few.
Under Hariri's term as a prime minister, the WTO was pushed further and deeper in Lebanon. So did Free Trade on the expense of millions of workers, women and children worldwide. Privatization was taking over, everything was due for it from the electricity to the mail-service. Hariri's companies and affiliated ones were taking over left and right. His personal money and contacts were used to run state matters where no one else could manage... or benefit.
Several drastic economical outcries happened under Hariri's term, leading to the killing of five demonstrators in April 2004 by the Lebanese army. http://www.beirut.indymedia.org/ar/2004/05/1286.shtml
Another landmark in Hariri-style democracy is the attack on the Jnah underpriviliged area in March 2004 where the Lebanese army used tanks to attack protestors refusing to pay exagerated electricity fees to a government that denies them even affordable clean drinking water. http://www.beirut.indymedia.org/ar/2004/03/1000.shtml
That was not the only time where Hariri's government got its hands dirty with state-repression. Hariri was responsible for the September 1993 killings where 10 anti-Oslo agreement protesters (some say Hezbollah members - Hezbolah is now taking Hariri as a resistance figure) got killed on the hands of the Lebanese army.
Some people argue that he gave Lebanon an international trust-worthy name after the civil war; well he made it possible for us to drink Starbucks and eat Mcdonalds. The name he made was only appealing for those who could afford, or for multinational corporations and investors that has nothing held more sacred than profit, not even life itself. Corporations that do nothing but ruin our local economy, local and global environment and human rights. A democracy that is based on capital and totalitarian rule of capitalism. The one depending on genetically modified crops, sweatshops, and the planet´s exploitation.
He on the other hand sent people on grants to study and earn degrees – he had his own organization for that, Al Hariri Foundation. Some of those “good students” were to earn a salary working in his companies, or become his voting sheep. People oriented their voting choices according to his choices... he was the money provider in a dying economy – that he was killing, and he was the one who “provided for the kids' education”. He was the Sunni figure, the one who decided that him being born in Sidon in the south is not of an enough political impact so moved his papers to Beirut and ran there for elections... in the capital, becoming an MP of Beirut, a prime minister, and a leader/ puppeteer of small exploiters who ran were he told them. In the past municipal elections he received quite a blow when the majority of the citizens of Beirut did not vote, still his babies hatched in the municipal board of Beirut. Yesterday, all of Beirut marched in tears demanding that Syria goes out.
Few months ago that same square witnessed a protest against the re-election of President Lahoud and its consecutive constitution, it had banners calling on Syrian withdrawal and hands off Lebanon. Around a hundred young people showed up. People were tucked in their houses ranting about the economical situation and Syrian hegemony. We were a 100 surrounded by hundreds of army soldiers, riot police and endless checkpoints... the rest of the country was silent, blessing the re- “election” of Lahoud as a president. http://www.beirut.indymedia.org/ar/2004/09/1634.shtml
Hariri's assasination is a national tragedy on many levels, but he is never and will never be a symbol of freedom and social justice. He is responsible for so many atrocious policies and actions that “we Lebanese” are paying for and will do for quite sometime. Hariri the powerful, the invincible, the man who holds so much power, ties and connections to world's high corporate world, state heads and monarchs. He was a Lebanese MP, tycoon, former prime minster, billionaire, body-guarded by top of the line security experts and almost a Saudi prince... still “they” - whoever they were – managed to take him down. Just like this... snap! Just when he no longer satisfied their needs, or maybe when his death became more beneficial than his life.
A capital-monger taken down fueling all enmity to Syria to the extent that Syrian exploited workers in Lebanon are being beaten down the streets to no one's astonishment. Everyone is running around to copy Princess Diana's pictures by laying candles and flowers and posing for international media. Media is talking again about Hariri the “builder of Beirut”, “Mr. Beirut”, “the re-constructor of Lebanon”, “national hero” and a “martyr”; with pictures of Chirac holding Hariri's wife's hand. I wonder if Mobarak gets assassinated tomorrow... or even Bush, will they turn into national heroes? ... maybe also people would light them candles and lay flowers on their tombs. Maybe if Pinochet stayed in office enough to be assassinated he would have got the same as well.
Lebanese people are all demanding Syria out, people are hysterically in the street denouncing violence, something we suffered for so long. It was inspiring to see as much in the streets crying out loud against assassinations and bombs; and against the Syrian occupation. But as someone who lived 26 years in the state of Lebanon, and who carries its passport, I carry a bigger fear now. A fear that this wave of country-wide solidarity turn out into further racism and nationalism/ fascism. Syrian workers who are exploited both by “their” government and “ours” are the victims again. Hariri's assassination is a rejected practice, a further establishment of a system that oppressed us for so long yet Hariri was nothing but another tool of repression and exploitaiton.
the outrage is total, we all are...
the grief is deep,
the shock is beyond belief,
the bombing brings nightmares of past life ... the worst of all,
the demand for an immediate Syrian withdrawal, military and
politically is nonnegotiable,
but condoning Hariri's policies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lebanese youth are teaming under cries rejecting violence; it is inspiring to see it happen. But I missed a point, how did he rebuild the country? Or brace us for freedom? Or even thought of us beyond police batons, army bullets, and empty pockets and mouths? Please tell me my country fellow men and women... if you finally decided to march for freedom and "independence" why march towards Hariri´s tombstone? Why construct/emphasise more symbols and leaders...especially out of criminals? If "we" are demanding independence why do not we march to Jnah or Hey El Selloum with chants for Syria to get out and the government to fall?
My grief and outrage is for those who died on Thursday May 27th, 2004 in Hay El Seloum. My grief and apologies is for those who are still jailed, beaten and unheard off just for demanding food that day... to the thousands in jails in Lebanon and Syria for voicing their dissent. My solidarity is with you and no-one else, my apologies in the name of these thousands marching today... sorry they did not march in thousands before May 27th for you, or even later on the 29th, or 30th....or today for you!
Sorry they did not march till the Exploiter got terminated by a bigger fish!
I wonder, what fish will munch on us now after he is gone!
Hariri is a hero
Hariri is and will always be our hero. He is the face of Lebanon, stop lying the man is dead. Syria out now, ENOUGH.

نود من حضرتكم نشر هذا التصحيح كاملا عن كلام ورد في مجلتكم , في مقال منشور بالصفحة أربعين (40) , للكاتبة كريستيان عون, في العدد الصادر نهار الإثنين 7 آذار 2005 .
لقد نشر عن لساني جملة مواقف مخالفة لمبادئي وآرائي ولتوجهات حركة الطلاب المستقلين التي وكلتني التكلم بإسمها, من الرئيس الحريري وسياساته المالية وغير المالية كلها,التي لطالما كنا نختلف مع سياساته وتوجهاته كلها, وبالرغم من إدانتنا للعمل المجرم الذي قتل الرئيس الشهيد, وتعاطفنا مع عائلته, لا بد من التذكير بأننا ولا مرة إعتبرنا ان الرئيس الحريري "أكثر شخص ساعد لبنان وجعلنا نتعلق بلبنان ونحبه ونؤمن به.", أو أن" بحادثة الإغتيال هذه تغيرت نظرتنا للبنان ولم يعد بإمكاننا التفكير بالمستقبل." ولا بد من الإشارة إننا كنا وما زلنا ضد كل السياسات التي إتبعها الرئيس الحريري ونحن نحمل المسؤولية كاملة لتلك السياسات لما وصلنا إليه من تدهور إقتصادي وتردي للأوضاع على الصعد كافة. ولابد من التذكير بأننا قمنا بإعتصام سنة 2003 بوجه حكومة الرئيس الحريري مطالبين بحقنا في مجانية التعليم وقد كان لنا مواقفنا حينها وما زالت تلك المواقف نفسها.

Another Bloodbath is Coming: MASSACRE on IRAN
Independent tv team m.m.
Another Bloodbath is Coming: MASSACRE on IRAN
- Comrade Kevin Alfred Strom tells... Documentary clip labelled "American Dissident Voices Broadcast of January 8, 2005
- Let`s watch!
- America is in extreme danger as an out-of-control Bush administration moves to expand the War for Israel in the Mideast to yet another nation: Iran. Did you know that American attack planes have been spotted over Iran, supposedly sent to monitor her nuclear power plants, after repeated warnings by that nation that further incursions on her airspace would meet with violent retaliation? Did you know that there is no intelligence need for those flights, because our advanced satellite technology gives us all the detailed information we need on activities in Iran? (One need only look at the satellite imagery now available to the public -- where your very driveway and car are probably visible -- to know that the pictures our military intelligence agencies are seeing from space must be very detailed indeed.) In the wake of the disastrous outcome of the Iraq War, the Jewish Supremacists are -- just as we predicted last year -- making a move toward a wider war.
Do you remember "Weapons of Mass Destruction"? Remember how the Iraqis were supposed to throw down flowers in the paths of our soldiers and bow down in gratitude as we remade their nation in the image of American 'democracy'? Remember how this Middle East War was supposed to make America safe from terrorism? Even armed with the blood, brains, muscle, and money of their American serfs -- and the highest-technology weaponry on the planet -- the Jewish supremacists have been unable to secure Iraq. The war was technically won, but actually lost -- lost spiritually, lost practically, lost in terms of anything gained for America, and lost even in terms of the objectives of the Zionists. It was lost in almost any way you can think of. The neocons -- who dreamt of Jewish media moguls and corporate scam-masters lording it over supine Islamic voter/consumers -- seem to have hit more than a few snags on their way to the whorehouse and the counting house, though plenty of Americans and Iraqis have made it to the charnel house and the poor house, to be sure.
The neocons, emboldened by their puppet's victory in the recent presidential election, are going to try to "fix" the disaster they have created by expanding the war to yet another country, this time Iran.
In American Dissident Voices broadcasts in 2003, we told you that Iraq was going to coalesce along religious and ethnic lines -- and that's exactly what is happening. In the so-called Sunni Triangle, the Sunni minority is putting everything it has into resistance to the occupation, and there is no sign that they are weakening. Almost daily, even the controlled media are forced to report repeated acts of resistance, giving the lie to Bush's "mission accomplished" act he put on almost two years ago -- and also giving the lie to the idea that "fear of Saddam" or Saddam's lieutenants was the only thing "forcing" what the controlled media like to call the "Iraqi insurgents" to oppose American power.
Now out from under the thumb of secular/Sunni Saddam, the Shiite majority opposes the invaders every bit as much as the Sunni "insurgents" -- but they are generally not planting bombs, but quietly making plans to take over the machinery of power.
In much of Iraq, Shiites are the overwhelming majority of the population, and they have great deal of sympathy for the their much larger neighbor the (Shiite) Islamic Republic of Iran, which reciprocates the feeling. With its hands full fighting the resistance, US occupiers pay little attention to the border with Iran, which is probably even easier to cross than the Rio Grande.
On Tuesday, Secretary of State Colin Powell admitted in an article in The Australian that the Shiites will dominate the upcoming Iraqi election -- no kidding, Colin, especially since the Sunnis are mostly boycotting it, preferring to put their faith in their armed independence struggle. And, though Powell tried to deny it, the Iranians will have a significant hand in the power structure that emerges. The Australian reports:
"...some US officials admit little can be done to limit the political influence in Iraq of Iran. They say Iran has provided support to the two leading Shi'ite political parties in the United Iraqi Alliance, the electoral group expected to dominate the 275-seat national assembly. Tehran's support includes an estimated $US20 million ($26 million) in campaign funding for Shi'ite candidates, according to a State Department official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. He said the only significant question now was how close to Iran a new Iraqi government would lean.... However, others said the US would live with increased Iranian influence in Iraq. 'Once upon a time, it might have been America's worst nightmare that there was a religious fundamentalist government installed in Baghdad that had a close synergy with Iran,' Institute of Peace analyst Jonathan Morrow said. 'But now America's worst nightmare is being locked into a Sunni insurgency that never ends and results in the continued loss of American lives.'" http://tinyurl.com//6q7fr
There was no way this war could ever have been a victory for White Americans -- but look at what a Pyrrhic victory it has been even for its Jewish supremacist sponsors! Even the establishment press admits that "American officials" are now willing to accept a scenario that only months ago would have been our "worst nightmare" -- because the nightmare we have created is now far worse.
It seems likely at this point that large, powerful, anti-Zionist, anti-American, and -- by Middle Eastern standards -- technologically advanced Iran is going to have much more influence in the Middle East than heretofore. And the part of Iraq that is not dominated by Iran, the Sunni Triangle, will be just as unreservedly against the Jewish-American Axis. Iraq's puppet defense minister, Hazem Shaalan, states bluntly that Iran's goal is to dominate and destabilize the "new Iraq," and that the 900-mile-long border between Iran and Iraq is practically open, with only a few checkpoints in place and Iranian agents acting almost as if they were operating on their own territory: "Dialogue is not enough for Iran. Iran wants to take control over Iraq."
(I would add parenthetically that when Iraq's defense minister Shaalan -- a man essentially on the payroll of an occupying army -- stated on Tuesday that he hoped most Arab nations would condemn "the meddling and insurgencies directed from Iran and Syria" in Iraq, that he had to be hamming it up for the cameras of the US media, because surely no one on the ground in Iraq could hear his words about "meddling" without derisive laughter at his hypocrisy.)
Iran, of course, is just taking the best advantage they can of the situation created by the Jewish supremacists and the war they started to "remake" the Middle East. In their insane hubris they are remaking the Middle East all right -- but the results are vastly different from what they planned, and extending the war to a third country is apparently the only "solution" they can think of. Such an act of aggression also fits in with Jewish supremacist objectives of always working to destroy and undermine the leading non-Jewish nation in the region, whatever that nation may be.
Most dangerous for America if we follow the Jewish piper into Iran is the fact that Iran is not only far larger and more technologically advanced than Iraq, but Iran is also a much more politically and religiously radical adversary than was secular Iraq. If we are impressed with the daring, tenacity, courage, and heart with which the Iraqi resistance have kept up the struggle against overwhelming odds -- imagine what the Iranians can do. This is nation whose civilians, young and old alike, voluntarily went to the front in the Iran-Iraq war, bringing their burial shrouds with them, and ran on foot by the thousands on suicide missions across minefields to clear the way for their tank battalions to follow.
This is a nation whose leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, said just this Wednesday in a message to his nation's 8th Congress on Martyred Students: "Enemies of the Islamic Republic are trying to humiliate and diminish the value of martyrdom and the culture of jihad in the eyes of the youth, particularly students." According to Iran's official news agency, Khamenei "urged students to continue to promote the culture of jihad and martyrdom (To die for something you believe in) among themselves as 'a source of national strength and foundation of pure worship.'"
The World Tribune reports that, as I speak, American aircraft are making incursions into Iranian airspace, a dangerous provocation about which the Jewish-controlled major media in America are entirely silent:
"Iran has reported flights by U.S. military aircraft over nuclear facilities near the borders with Afghanistan and Iraq. Iran's state-controlled media said the overflights by U.S. aircraft were spotted near a range of nuclear facilities, including the Bushehr nuclear reactor constructed by Russia. In late December, Teheran ordered the Iranian Air Force to shoot down unidentified aircraft flying anywhere in the country, Middle East Newsline reported. Iranian officials have accused Israel and the United States of seeking to conduct reconnaissance flights over Iran. Iran has deployed anti-aircraft missiles around major nuclear sites, including Bushehr. So far, there have been no reports of Iranian missile fire toward U.S. or Israeli warplanes. The U.S. aircraft said to have entered Iranian air space included F-16 multi-role fighters and F/A-18 attack jets, the reports said. On Monday, the Iranian newspaper Aftab reported the entry of a U.S. fighter-jet on Jan. 1...."
May I add that attack jets are hardly U-2 spy planes, nor are they designed primarily for photography! Independent radio host and National Vanguard commentator Hal Turner said on Wednesday that the US government may be trying to create a new 9-11 or Pearl Harbor-type incident to bring American public opinion around to the idea of making war on Iran:
"In case you haven't figured it out yet, the gang that controls Bush is setting the stage for a military confrontation with Iran. They haven't had much success in beating the war drums with Iran using rhetoric about 'weapons of mass destruction' -- because the Bush Administration blew all its credibility when it lied about WMD in Iraq. With the WMD lie now useless, we now have to set up a tragedy to use as an excuse for war. Here's how I think it will play out:
"The US will continue to send war planes into Iranian airspace. They'll tell pilots that we need intelligence about the 'evil, crazy Muslims' in Iran. The pilots, believing their commanders, will undertake the missions. But the missions -- and the reason for them -- will all be part of a monstrous deception.
"We don't need aerial recon because spy satellites have already obtained all the intelligence we need. The pilots are being used as cannon fodder to provoke an incident. The whole plan is a trap and Iran is going to fall right into it.
"Iran has ordered its air force to intercept and shoot down intruding planes. While our planes are far more sophisticated than Iranian jets, there is a slim possibility that they might be able to kill one or more of our pilots. That's exactly the type of tragedy the administration wants!
"Once a US fighter jet is downed, the Bush administration will be publicly outraged. They will claim the plane made a minor, accidental incursion and was headed out of Iran, but the 'savage, crazy Iranians' brutally attacked. Given the history of falsehoods this administration has uttered, it is also possible that they may simply lie about the whole thing and claim the plane wasn't even in Iranian airspace.
"Either way, the US media will chime in about the 'savage, unprovoked attack.' ...War with Iran will then be within the realm of possibility because a substantial part of American public opinion will support it...." http://www.nationalvanguard.org/story.php?id=4431
What will Iran do, knowing that the slaughter is about to begin? I urge you to read Mr. Turner's article on NationalVanguard.org, where he lays out one possible frightening scenario. Will they send smuggled planes under the radar to hit the nerve centers of Washington? Will they poison the water supply of a major city? Will they release deadly gas in a heavily-populated area? Will agents armed with suitcase-size nuclear devices spread out from their entry points along our unguarded southern border? I don't know, but I believe that their response will be extreme and dramatic. I believe that many thousands of Americans will die, many more than died on 9-11. Iran does not have the ability to bring a conventional ground war to North America -- but I believe that, unlike Iraq, Iran may well have the will and the intelligence and the capability to bring, in some way that I cannot predict, a devastating series of attacks on the US mainland. And I believe that this will be the beginning of a new World War, a war in which our nation, America, will not be on the side of the angels -- a war in which we will continue to be the mailed fist and bloody boot of the genocidal Zionist war machine; a war in which Americans will pay a heavy price for their ignorance and subservience to an alien power.
And it may well be a war in which Russia is forced to play the role of the trump card: If she chooses, whatever her own troubles with the Moslem world, to back a world of self-determination and national sovereignty against the international ambitions of the Jewish supremacists, then the outcome of the next World War may indeed be one of a radical reordering of things in North America. Already our "European allies" have had about enough of the neocon's war on their doorstep. Already they are seeing the Jewish supremacists as near-insane aggressors who are the major threat to world peace and stability. With their "support" nearing the zero level, what would their response be to a sneak attack on Iran, especially if nuclear-armed Russia demands hands off the Islamic Republic?
Iran's military has been on alert to protect her nuclear power facilities since December, and -- most significantly -- Iran has requested Russian help in protecting herself from an American-Israeli attack, specifically beginning negotiations for purchase of advanced Russian aircraft. Russia is also cooperating in space, satellite, and nuclear reactor projects within the Islamic Republic. Russia and Iran are even synchronizing their power grids. Also significant is the recent statement of Sergei Mironov, Speaker of the Russia's upper house of parliament, who said last month that "No outside pressure will be able to undermine Russian-Iranian cooperation" and that "Russia and Iran hold similar views on major international issues... such as the restoration of peace and stability to the Middle East...."
Israel's intelligence-and-murder agency, the Mossad, is well aware that a larger conflict is coming: On Tuesday, they asked for a doubling of their budget in the light of the "Iran situation," according to a report by Agence France Presse. In the same report it states "A possible Israeli-US attack against Iranian nuclear installations has been reported in American, Arab and Israeli newspapers in recent months. Washington and Israel have publicly denied there is any such plan." http://tinyurl.com/6kzjz
The White American and European lives that have been lost forever defending the treacherous state of Israel, and the squandering of our people's wealth in that unworthy cause are tragedies beyond measure and almost beyond endurance. But the tragedies we have experienced so far are nothing -- nothing -- compared with what we will experience if we allow the Jewish supremacist aggressors to widen their war to the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The National Alliance stands foursquare against the infiltration of aggressive multiracialist Islam into America and the other nations of the West. But beyond such protective measures as are necessary for defending our race and culture, we have no quarrel with the Moslems who stay in their home nations. We have no reason or motive to disturb their independence and freedom. We have nothing to gain from the doomed Zionist project in Palestine. We should not fund it; we should not defend it. Not only is the defense of Israel and Jewish power not worth a world war, they are actually worth nothing -- less than nothing -- to us. They are a liability. All the luxury condos in Tel Aviv, all the junk bond and accounting fraud kings, all the AIPAC bag men and spies, all the Mossad assassins, all the neocon liars and Fox News frauds who have led us into this bloodbath are not worth a single drop of my children's blood. They are not worth the price of the handful of powder that millions of young men in the Islamic world, thanks to George Bush, now ache to carry to them personally.
If we White Americans cannot gain control of our government again, and rein in the Zionist criminals who surround and control Bush, then I am very afraid that others will rein them in for us -- and at a horrible, horrible cost to the innocent. Let us do all in our power to prevent that. Let us forego all that is unnecessary and put everything into the important community- and consciousness-building work of the National Alliance.
The philosopher Savitri Devi called it 'enthralling.' Dr. William Pierce called it "a survival manual for the White race." Revilo Oliver of the University of Illinois, one of the leading classicists of the last century, called it "unique... a veritable encyclopedia of everything that is directly pertinent to our race's position in the world today."
The book is William Gayley Simpson's Which Way Western Man?, which was unavailable for years -- but which has been republished in a new edition by National Vanguard Books.
William Simpson began his career as a graduate, summa cum laude, of a major theological seminary, and became a Franciscan brother working among the poor and disenfranchised in an attempt to make a better world. Simpson saw the magnitude of the problems he and his comrades were trying to solve, and realized that the ameliorative work in which they were engaged would never solve the problems they were tackling, and could at best only slow down the steady decline of our civilization and of human quality generally.
He read the great philosophers, particularly Nietzsche, and from the 1920s to 1980 kept a written record of his search for truth and for the meaning of life, which he found in the never-ending quest to increase human excellence and quality. Which Way Western Man? is the result of that quest, and it is one of the most important books of the last 100 years.
Published in 1980, the first edition sold out within a few years and was not reprinted, as the author was working, throughout the 80s and until his death in the 1990s, on a series of revisions and additions which reflected his new knowledge and mature final insights. At last, the monumental job of revision has been completed and the second edition of Which Way Western Man? is now available.
Which Way Western Man? is more than just a work of history, philosophy, and science, although it is all of that -- it is also the story of a life, the life of an unusually sensitive and compassionate man, a man who could understand the mission of St. Francis as well as that of Nietzsche -- a man who could see our position in the universe and relate it to the ordinary reader in a way that no other writer has ever done. I recommend Which Way Western Man? with my highest commendation. It is a life-changing book.
Which Way Western Man? is available as item number 407 from National Vanguard Books. This huge, encyclopedic work of 1070 pages is $39.95 plus $3 shipping and handling in the U.S., $5 elsewhere in the world. That's item 407 for $39.95 plus $3 in the U.S., $5 world, to National Vanguard Books, Box 330, Hillsboro WV 24946 USA. Or you can order online by clicking on the book's image at natvan.com.

comment to National Vanguard
The reactionary right wing racism of the National Vanguard will only accomplish increased violence and suffering, tyranny and bloodshed..
Having pride and respect for your ancestry is not wrong in itself. However recent European cultural history is based on classism, racism and oppression of working people of all races and nationalities. Not only oppressive, it is also a fallacy assumption of genetic superiority based on Eurocentric culture post-civilization, post-Christianity. This same delusional thinking pattern belittled European tribal culture pre-civilization (more anarchy, less heirarchy). Christianity combined with Social Darwinism (misconstrued concept of evolution ignores symbiosis) created a mental block that stifled any connection with tribal European lifestyle. This is not something to be proud of..
Before the invasion of organized heirarchical imperialist civilizations, Europeans lived similar lifestyles with indigenous Africans, Australians and North/South Americans. Celts, Yoruba, Wintu, etc. had more in common than different, even though they all lived on different continents and had different physical/genetic traits based on their ecosystem/climate. Racism did not exist, tribal conflict was minimal, battles over territory and hunting grounds..
What led Britain, France, Spain, and other European nations into imperialism, classism, slavery and oppression is the same force leading Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Feith, Perle, etc. into the lands of Iraq, Iran, Syria, Indonesia, Colombia, etc..
Everyone is being pulled along by the petroleum consumption momentum regardless of skin color or nationality, yet European Americans are harming themselves despite their racial privilege. Being overly dependent on material devices causes a parasitic relationship of exploitation and slavery. The beneficieries at the upper strata of heirarchy force this relationship on everyone..
If segregation becomes a reality, this is a likely outcome;
Segregation based on racial genetics would complicate the problem further and maintain the status quo. Ruling elites would maintain their power unchallenged while working/low income people bicker over ethnic differences. European Americans would continue living a delusional lifestyle supported by war, slavery and exploitation. When this lifestyle becomes impossible due to natural constraints (petroleum depletion, soil erosion), then European Americans will be poorly prepared and become dependant on "survivalist segregation" types like militia, segregationists (National Vanguard, Nation of Islam, etc..) and government/religious (Mormon) compound stockpiles. Most likely some form of multiethnic slavery would continue after the elite leaders of the segregationist "protectors" began to join forces behind the scenes to maintain their power over people. Similar to elite leaders of America (Bush), Saudi Arabia (Bin Laden) and Israel (Sharon) making deals behind golden mansion doors while regular people struggle, slave and starve in the streets..
Instead of returning to shared multiethnic pagan cultures that have the common ground of respect for Earth, a harsh and punitive religious dogma will be forced upon people. This could appear in many forms of organized religion, guaranteed it will not be pleasant. The outcome of religious dogma would be slavery and subjegation to whatever form of imperialism the new masters decide upon..
If people abandon segregation and embrace one another as brother and sister on Mama Earth, this is a likley outcome;
People will eventually migrate to whatever climate and ecosystem suits them. Learning to interact with the plants, animals and climate of the region will become more important than ethnic origin and religious beliefs. When Mama Earth becomes the center of life, there is little reason to argue and fight with one another over something so insignificant as ethnicity..
Anarchist People of Color;
At the beginning you seemed like an interesting person, but as I read on I came onto some really ridiculous things...
"Corporations that do nothing but ruin our local economy" How do corporation ruin the economy? Corporations make the economy work. I bet you know nothing about economy.
"Syrian exploited workers in Lebanon" Lebanon is the best thing that happened to syrian workers. They get payed triple the syrian salary. Did someone force them to come here? You have a problem in your brain.
But anyways I respect your effort
