Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s ambitions in Syria and Libya is interventional with Turkish leadership having been directly responsible for Syrian refugees status quo through participation in providing refuge to terror outfits like al-nusra front in 2011, 2012 onwards that cost not only innocent Syrian lives but also claimed many Turkish citizens lives from terror blowback against Turkey.

Furthermore, Turkey exploring occupation of Libya would be illegal invasion of foreign land that would not be appreciated by Turkish leadership and citizens upon similar attempts from any regional states against Turkey.

Syria has been the bedrock of violence due to international powers sponsorship of terror evolving into various terror groups such as IS, ISIL and ISIS as the latest one. Turkey’s role was instrumental in aiding and abetting terror factions attracting Turkish population dissent and protests across Turkey in recent memory.

The non-violent peace march in Turkey at that time in 2012 was quelled with brute force by Turkish leadership Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, then serving as Prime Minister of once secular democratic nation regrettably transitioned into conservative hardline governance denying citizens political and civil rights. Turkey was once regarded the model democracy for muslim nations in the region and outside.

Unfortunately, the Turkish leadership’s quest for power along with external forces harmful and destructive backing allowing then Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to amend constitution transforming the political system from Parliamentary to Presidential form of government nascent in the existing trend.

The political maneuvering slighting opposition in Turkish Parliament by then PM Recep Tayyip Erdoğan having exhausted term limit led Turkey into the  current situation.

Any aspirations to revive earlier centuries empire status viz. Ottoman empire would be egregious and importantly impact the country of origin planning such move now or in the near future.  The erroneous calculations proved pessimistic time and time again for imperialism. The twentieth and twenty first century imperialistic goals invariably affecting the source in terms of economic liabilities in sending troops to foreign soil and humanitarian costs that are irreversible would be the occupier’s concern prompting abandonment of such flawed decision and counterproductive strategy.

Syria and Libya having been utilized as the battle ground for international forces launching terror attacks essentially behind massive humanitarian crises in the form of refugees turning Syrian and Libyan population stateless in their homeland.

Besides, the continuous warfare depriving Syrian and Libyan people the urgent economic revival endangering ordinary lives survival further exacerbated with western imposed economic sanctions. In promoting terror through recruitment, training and funding of terror groups, these two nations remain the target for relentless hegemonic pursuits within and outside the region.

Turkish leadership and political members exercising diligence and renouncing any incursions against Syria and Libya would demonstrate wisdom and maturity in dealing with border related issues and other factors that are best resolved through civil non-violent and constructive democratic course rather than unnecessary present confrontation.

Syria and Libya are sovereign nations with citizens entitled to self-determination rights that are not to be taken for granted or ignored by foreign powers espousing unwanted annexation desires that could only prolong the difficult moments into eternal conflict which is needless to say not a viable option for any nation or the Middle East for that matter.

Thank you.

Fact Check on Jewish Status

August 5, 2018

Fact Check on Jewish Status

Padmini Arhant

Jack Rosen, an American lobbyist and Chairman of the powerful American Jewish Congress. Apart from being a lobbyist, the 69-year-old CEO of Rosen Partners, Jack Rosen is a board member of Altimo – a British Virgin Island (BVI) company that is the telecom investment arm of Russia’s Alfa Group consortium. It has investment interests in Russia, Central Asia, Middle East and Bangladesh.  

A Wikipedia entry for Mr Jack Rosen says he has advocated for Jewish and Israeli causes stating. “We are living in a post-Holocaust era and the forces that provided for a safe and secure Israel are changing. We have to look at what the future holds and have to use all the skills we’ve learned in America and that are available to us to ensure security for Jews around the world”, says the internet information portal.  

The Israeli and Jewish advocacy in politics, judiciary, economy, academic institutions and entertainment industry alarmed over alleged threats to Israel and Jewish population are unfounded in the contemporary age.

The events in the twentieth century affected many different race, religion and ethnic background. The brutality of human character reflected in ethnic cleansing and colonization continues unabated until today. Accordingly, the atrocities inflicted on one race that was preexisting with others long before in the course of imperialism in different parts of the world cannot be neglected in history as there were tremendous loss of lives from horrific violence and mass subjugation. Jewish plight could be one aspect among massive crimes committed against humanity at that time.

However, in the twenty first century the claims on threat to Jews and Israel especially with Israel being a nuclear state is unsubstantiated and propagated without legitimacy on such allegations.

The reverse impact on those experiencing Israel’s overt and covert operations in many sites across the border and other locations in the Middle East as well as elsewhere is consistent and relentless with no political will to peaceful resolutions. Any peace proposals are stymied allowing Israeli ideologues to intensify human rights violations attracting global condemnation. Israeli authorities sponsoring terrorism is evidenced in the treatment of terrorists in the Syrian conflict and preparing the terror outfits to reposition in the war against Syrian people.

Jewish dominance in every sector beginning with politics in the United States, Britain, France, Russia, Eastern Europe, Middle East, South Asia, Latin America and worldwide cannot be underestimated as a result of  Jewish lobby. 

The technology viz. Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia to name a few have clear access to private details of public proven in the recent Facebook scandal harvesting and monetization of consumer data using these platforms. There are tech giants in disguise whose profile leads to Jewish origin.

Besides, the pervasive position in the economy, the stock market and finance in particular evident in the private entityThe Federal Reserve designed and executed monetary policy of the United States of America. The treasury activities of the United States routinely target selective adversaries for sanctions to maintain status quo.

The private organization Federal Reserve poised as the United States Federal Monetary authority appointed Chairperson (male and female) thus far are invariably of Jewish descent.

The academic institutions like Ivy league in the United States and other private educational establishments pledge allegiance to Jewish cause.

Judiciary is yet another branch with majority Jewish representation.

The think tanks, political foundations, communication media, press such as The New York Times, Bloomberg, Financial Times attend secret society meeting and sworn to secrecy on decisions at this undemocratic conclave.

In terms of intelligence apparatus, Israeli Mossad, US CIA, Britain’s MI5 and MI6 are regarded one in safeguarding Israeli interests globally by any means and mechanisms.

In politics, United States Presidential hopefuls from both left and right addressing the Annual AIPAC summit is the tradition. That goes for Congress members unflinching support to Israeli lobby on all issues whether right or wrong.

The interesting factor is the political contestants’ success is linked with Jewish lineage that guarantees mileage to cross the finish line.

For example, in 2008 the democratic rivals Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama asserted Jewish family relations making them the desirable choice to the Jewish kingmakers in the political race.

Seeing this political edge, Barack Obama’s wife Michelle Obama suddenly remembered about her long-lost uncle being not only a Jew, a Rabbi to top the status.

Furthermore, the republican candidate in 2008, John McCain wooed the Jewish lobby with the slogan – Bomb, Bomb Iran. Noting that the so-called democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama emphasized their stance in their individual style.

Hillary Clinton proclaimed – She would Obliterate Iran with nuclear weapons while Barack Obama opted the standard call for the lack of self-expression, chiming All options are on the table meaning not barring nuclear weapons.

In 2016 – the political rhetoric continued with the democratic contender Hillary Clinton reiterating her daughter Chelsea Clinton’s in-laws being Jewish.

Could the republican candidate Donald Trump then simply let go in his competitor’s favor?

Definitely not.

The Presidential candidate Donald Trump proudly mentioned in political rallies on his daughter Ivanka  (an apostate) having converted to Judaism had given birth to a third Jewish baby.

Now, Ivanka Kushner dubbed Ivanka Trump despite the connotation of her being the mother of three is the regular feature on networks and cyber political sites.

Similarly, in Pakistan the embattled Prime Minister candidate, PTI chief Imran Khan always been the favorite to London based shadow power and more so given Imran Khan’s previous marriage to Jewish billionaire’s daughter Jemima Goldsmith, the first to tweet the congratulatory message on her son’s father’s prospects of becoming Pakistan’s Wazir-e-Azam – the Prime Minister.

Last but not the least, the entertainment industry diversity eclipse due to Hollywood and television medium overshadowed by Jewish ascendancy is common knowledge. The same extended into Mumbai film industry referred to as Bollywood with Jewish owned entertainment firms financing big budget films inducing controversy and internal agitation attributed to movie themes.

The information unequivocally describes the Jewish Israeli stronghold and predominance in every possible field and this is no stretch of imagination. 

The factual presentations to this effect are immediately refuted as antisemitism which in itself is incorrect for semites are the Arab tribes in North Africa and Palestine.

Israel and Jews predisposition to insecurity regardless is misplaced in light of overwhelming clout retained in world affairs and events. Humans and for that matter other species included continue to be subject to abuse, prejudice, isolation, denial of freedom, civil rights, and extreme violence. Palestine serves as the example in this context, with no hope for Palestinian statehood. Instead Israeli forces and authority authorized rapid deterioration of conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory is the norm much to global criticism.  Israel’s perennial investment in combat and territorial annexations witnessed in the settlement activities in West Bank and East Jerusalem, notwithstanding unilateral economic blockade against the people in Gaza lasting a decade are provocative to say the least.

Moreover, United States ordinary tax payers since the wealthy are exempt from fair share of taxes remain the benefactor to the state of Israel with unconditional permanent financial aid even during US severe economic recession alongside military provisions. United States participation in Israel’s chosen warfare in Syria, Yemen, skirmishes in Lebanon, confrontations with Iran, proxy in Egypt, bifurcation of Sudan and political instability wherever possible never had anything to do with US citizens or national security.

Israel and Jewish organizations reconciliation with reality in acknowledgment of peace and liberty for all exemplified in ending occupation in Palestine and territories seized in 1967 six-day warfare could not be rejected any more. The acceptance is imperative for a new chapter in the Middle East facilitating trust, respect and cordial relations with neighbors in the region and world over.

Sowing the seeds of peace and harmony would deliver positive outcome benefitting all in the region and outside. Unlike hostility and acrimony leaving those behind the strategy in eternal trepidation.

United States – Government Shut Down

January 19, 2018

United States – Government Shut Down

Padmini Arhant

 

United States government shut down is unfortunate and apparently a routine event considering the last one in 2013.

The members in the United States Senate unable to reach an agreement on issues of their choice demonstrates the lack of commitment to serve the American public without any disruption contributing to financial losses from the gridlock in the Senate.

Surely, the deal could have been struck among lawmakers in prioritizing issues and addressing relevant concerns on all sides amicably in electorate and national interest. Instead, the members blaming one another for their own favorite issues do not reflect well on the government and the nation delivering a negative image on performance.

The inaction to fund government impedes various activities again resulting in economic liability at tax payers expense that could have been averted by coming together and working out the best possible solution on major and minor aspects of the funding bill.

As such the public opinion on congressional stalemate is well known and accordingly the legislative and the executive branch coordination on the government funding bill is necessary without further delay in order to avoid indefinite breakdown for such situation serves none in politics.

Whoever is responsible in exacerbating the present crisis are not going to benefit in any manner and certainly not in political mileage this election year. The electorate backlash could have serious repercussions with public frustration mounting over legislators’ inability to reach an agreement on matter concerning all citizens affected in the preventable shut down.

Hopefully the members’ constitutional oath to serve the people of the United States without causing or allowing obstruction in government functionality and service to the nation would be maintained leading to the reopening of the government.

Thank you.
