افق الحل في اليمن بعد صالح

في معرض تعليقه على تجربة كمونة باريس الثورية الفاشلة, قال فلاديمير لينين "ليس المهم القيام بثورة, بل المهم القيام بثورة ناحجة تحقق اهدافها وتحمي نفسها".

مضت ثلاث سنوات على "ثورة" الحوثيين - صالح على الاوضاع القائمة في اليمن, ولم يقل لنا احد حتى الان اهداف الثورة وفلسفتها وما ترجو تحقيقه من اهداف واساليب تحقيقها وهل تم تحقيق اي هدف من هذه الاهداف. خصوصا ان الحلفاء على طرفي نقيض في معظم الامور. وبعد الانفصال الدموي بين مكوني "الثورة", يحق لمؤيديها وخصوصا اليمنيين ان يعرفوا اجابة على سؤال محدد "وماذا بعد؟".

لا يختلف اثنان من الخبراء المحايدين بان تصرف الحوثيين الدموي باغتيال الرئيس الاسبق صالح وبدم بارد, واغتيال من كان معه وغيرهم من معارضي الحوثيين من حلفاء الامس في "الثورة" في صنعاء وغيرها, ستكون له نتائج وخيمة على الجميع في اليمن.

فالسعودية والتي تقود عدوانا همجيا منذ ثلاث سنين على اليمن تلقفت الخبر بالكثير من السعادة والرضا ودارت بقميص صالح على القبائل لتؤجج الثارات القبلية. كما انها تلقفت الهدية الحوثية لتزيد من تحطيم اليمن وتدميره …

When I’m the only one watched by ASIO in this country

On the 4th of December 2015 I received on Facebook messenger an invitation to attend a conference in Lebanon. The organisation was to arrange everything including airline tickets, accommodation, internal transport and food. All I needed to do was send my passport and that’s exactly what I did.

The only communication I had via Facebook messenger were two messages, the invitation and me sending the copy of my passport.

The organisers contacted me regarding the return flights from Sydney to Beirut via WhatsApp. The conference was due to start on 7th December which meant I didn’t have much time to organise my trip.

On the 4th of December the organisers booked my flight to leave Sydney on 6th December. I had only about 36 hrs to pack and leave. Even my wife only found out I was leaving when the booking was confirmed.

My solicitor obtained the attached document from the Lebanese authorities where it states I was banned from entry to Lebanon on 4th December 2015. The same day I received the…

حقيقة الغربيين "اصدقاء سوريا": هل يفيد الحج والناس راجعه؟

دعوني اذكر بداية ان الازمة السورية ابتدأت في منتصف شهر اذار/مارس 2011. نعم في بداية عام 2011. وتذكروا هذا التاريخ جيدا بعد ان ابدأ بسرد حقيقة المشبوهين الغربيين الذين ظهروا في نهاية عام 2015. وخلال عامين اعلنوا انهم انقذوا سوريا من الهزيمة والتقسيم.

كما يجب ان اذكر ايضا ان المؤامرة على سوريا كانت تعتمد بالدرجة الاولى على نظرية "البلتزكريج", اي مفاجئة الخصم (الدولة السورية) بهجوم ساحق على عدة مستويات تؤدي الى شلل مؤسسات الدولة وانهيارها السريع. تماما كما حدث في تونس ومصر في بداية ما سمي بالربيع العربي. وبالتالي فان الدولة السورية كانت محتاجة للتضامن والمساعدة في الاشهر والسنوات الاولى للازمة.

ان الحرب الاعلامية كانت على اشدها منذ ما قبل اندلاع الازمة وكان المطلوب من اصدقاء سوريا الحقيقيين التحرك بسرعه لفضح المؤامرة في بداية عام 2011. لذلك وعندما قام الناشطون من اصدقاء سوريا الحقيقيين بتنظيم حملات الدفاع عن سوريا, تعرضوا الى ما تعرضوا له من اعتداءات وتهديدات.

هذه المقدمة كانت مهمه لتسليط الضوء على حقيقة ان سوريا واجهت اكثر الاوقات صعوبة في العامين الاولين للازمة. فالمتامرون…

THE UNTOLD STORY OF TIM ANDERSON’S MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT OF SYRIA.

Image
On 25 June 2013, I attended an event at the Syrian Orthodox Church in Lidcomble, in honour of the visit of Mother Agnes to Australia. During the event and light dinner, I was approached by Hanadi Assoud, a prominent Syrian activist in Sydney. She whispered to me that the "Syrian Consul" wants to meet me.

I answered in shock "do you have a Consul in Australia?"

"Yes we have an Honorary Consul"

She introduced me to Maher Dabbagh, the Syrian Honorary Consul in Australia, appointed after the closure of Syrian embassy in Canberra.

I asked him why he wanted to meet me.

"Syrian ministry of Foreign Affairs asked me about you and wanted me to contact you".

We exchanged details, contact numbers and vowed to work together in future. I did not know much about him. Even my contacts in Syrian community could not give me any clear answers.

After one week, I contacted Maher by phone. I told him that we have an idea of sending an Australian delegation to Syr…

How to become political analyst and journalist in one week?

The serious mishap happened at one of the respected satellite channels few weeks ago of presenting a 19 years old school leaver as “political analyst and researcher”, exposes clearly many serious issues we face in this social media era.

The school leaver who did not finish his year 10 schooling and working currently as laborer in Sydney, had no single published article on any subject that could interest any reader. He also did not have any experience working in any media organisation, even as cleaner. He also had never worked in any research institute or organisation. All he achieved was to film himself with his IPhone talking about Israeli crimes in Gaza. Then he published these childish clips on his Facebook account. This exercise made him “researcher and political analysts” and landed him many interviews with the same respected satellite TV station.

So, what does it takes you to become “journalist”, “researcher”, “expert” and “political analyst”?

All what you need to do is to go to…

ادعاءات فانيسا بيلي عن التعذيب في السجون السورية: لمصلحة من؟ ولماذا الان؟ِ

Image
فجأة ودون سابق انذار, قامت فانيسا بيلي بتبادل تعليقات مع بعض اصدقائها بان الرئيس السوري قد اسر في اذنها بان الاجهزة الامنية السورية قد ارتكبت وما تزال تعذيبا ممنهجا بحق المعتقلين السوريين وخصوصا في سجن صيدنايا. ثم قامت بيلي بمحاولة تاكيد هذه الاكاذيب بالادعاء ان الكثير من المسؤولين السوريين الذين التقتهم قد اكدوا هذه المعلومة.

وهنا لا بد لنا من طرح العشرات من الاسئلة على فانيسا بيلي ومؤيديها, وخصوصا اؤلئك الذين يدعون تأييد سوريا وحكومتها ورئيسها:
1- لماذا الان؟ في وقت بدأت الحرب تضع اوزارها بهزيمة المجاميع التكفيرية وهزيمة المشروع التقسيمي في سوريا.
2- ما هو موقع فانيسا بيلي المهم والذي شجع الرئيس السوري بان يسر في اذنها سر خطير يحاول الرئيس جاهدا وكل مؤسسات الدولة السورية على نفيه (او حسب كلام فانيسا اخفاؤه)؟ مع ان الرئيس التقى المدعوة فانيسا بيلي لقاءا واحدا يتيما عندما زارت دمشق ضمن وفد مجلس السلام الامريكي (التي هي ليست جزءا منه باعتبارها ليست مواطنه امريكية وانما اشتراكها بالوفد كان بالخدعة والاكاذيب) ولم تكن أنذاك معروفة او تتمتع باي مصداقية لدى السلطات السورية. فكيف ياتمنها الر…

Greens recent scandal: the end of the Greens?

Image
Despite being very busy with my university exams, I just couldn’t resist writing about the latest and possibly the biggest scandal within The Greens party. A scandal that just saw two of their leaders kiss goodbye to their political life.

The media covered this news extensively, however one important question has not been raised so far and that is “why now?” I mean, why only now this issue has been brought to light?

Less than two weeks ago, the party senators voted unanimously against Lee Rhiannon’s actions to destabilise the “party room”. These senators voted to exclude Rhiannon from all “controversial” decisions.

Rhiannon had always counted on Waters and Ludlam’s support but was left extremely disappointed when only Adam Bandt sided with her.
Of course Bandt’s ambition is ultimately to become the leader of The Greens should Di Natale’s leadership be destabilised, so we can explain his support for Rhiannon.

Then comes the scandal.

Ludlam was in parliament for 9 years. No one noticed…

Will Ludlam stand trial for charges of fraud and wasting public money?

How could media swallow the Greens Politicians' lies that Scott Ludlam "did not know that he had NZ citizenship"... when in fact few concerned citizens initiated petition 3 years ago, after he refused to publish document that he does not have NZ citizenship, asking the parliament to take action against his illegal candidacy..

(The petition could be found on

https://www.change.org/p/scott-ludlam-show-the-public-your-new-zealand-citizen-renunciation-form-proving-you-were-not-elected-to-our-parliament-illegally#share)

We consider this to be deliberate misleading public... that could be mounted to fraud...and wasting public money in enforcing the electoral commission to re-conduct last federal election in WA... wasting millions of tax-payers money...

We cannot believe that SBS could not check this petition when it aired that the whole issue was “innocent mistake” of this politician.

Many questions should be asked here:
-How could Australian Electoral Commission not find this…

As a Muslim: I am also disappointed by the Australian community

After Australians refused to hear her talks on regressive Sharia Laws, Jassmin Abdel Magied resorted to her usual rhetoric: accuse all who oppose her sick claims to be Islamophobe.

Jassmin wants Australians to swallow, without any argument, that her Sharia Laws are the most feminist laws in history. Problem is, Jassmin has not told us which Sharia Laws she endorses.

Is it the Wahhabi Sharia, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Sudan style?
Is it the Shia Sharia, similar to Iranian society?
Secular Sharia like in Egypt, Jordan and most of the Muslim countries

Jassmin who chose to visit countries that enforce repressive Sharia Laws (Saudi Arabia and Sudan), needs to convince me as a Muslim before trying to convince non-Muslims, how Sharia Laws are feminist? These claims are laughable and I will not debate them here.

Not only I’m disappointed with Jassmin and all her extremist supporters but I’m also disappointed by the Australian system and society.

I am deeply disappointed that Australia has allow…

STATEMENT OF CLARIFICATION

STATEMENT OF CLARIFICATION
In response to a post deliberately distributed to members of the Syria defence movement which portrays me as involved knowingly and deliberately in bringing into Syria an Israeli spy, I would like to write a few words here about this.

Firstly the individual who has deliberately distributed this information, damaging for the State of Syria and my own reputation, has failed miserably and only assisted in exposing more valuable information needed to close in on all the collaborators.

From the outset, this tour was under the auspices of the Syrian Ministry of Information who encourage visitors to Syria and see in this a form of economic support for the country. Our organisation’s role in this all was to liaise with the contact person from the Ministry and in a timely manner supply them the passport and details of proposed tour members. I would do initial research but as a layperson I can only research so much as was available to me. Hence, all these documents a…

Article by Syrian activist Leo AlHalabi on Tim Anderson... before we lose Leo's page...

Leo Alhalabi
Yesterday at 9:02pm ·

Tim Anderson is one of those least likely to be anyone’s best friend given his colorful history and current demeanor. All one has to do is ask some of his associates to realize that with having friends like him, one doesn’t need enemies. But this is the last thing that Tim wants his international fan base to know.

Tim Anderson jumped onto the Syrian bandwagon for many reasons, one of which was that he’d been desperately looking for a come-back into fame, or rather infamy.

As a young adult, would-be professor Tim was a leading figure in Ananda Marga, a highly “devoted” Hindu-ish sect, but one that’s also highly controversial. Whether the many allegations about Ananda Marga are baseless or not, who knows, but this post focuses on what I know of Tim and what is gleaned about him from sources online. The intention here isn’t to open a closet of skeletons, but as Ananda Marga was accused of a number of serious acts of religious terrorism around the world…

London terrorist attack: another reason why we need a Royal Commission on radicalisation

Despite being on high alert, the UK authorities were not able to stop the deadly terrorist attack in London yesterday. This event should have a great impact on how our authorities deal with local radicalisation.

In the UK (same as in Australia), the government together with authorities and opposition, acknowledged there was a problem with radicalisation but chose not to take any action against it. Some sections of the media and politicians even used this radicalisation to stir up division and more Islamophobia in our society.

In the last few years, in Australia, there has been no debate on where the source of this sudden “discovered” high radicalisation came from. We saw both the minister and shadow minister of education claim they had no prior knowledge of the high radicalisation in our public (and Islamic) schools. When in fact, myself and many of my friends, knew about this high radicalisation.

We had grave concerns when we witnessed our media, together with our politicians, supp…

When Pauline Hanson refused to meet with us to discuss radicalisation..

Pauline Hanson's latest comments about Islam and Muslims are further evidence that she is another lying politician who cannot be trusted.

Pauline Hanson deafened our ears for the last decade talking about extremism and radicalisation. Yet when we contacted her office several times offering to combine efforts in fighting against radicalisation, she just ignored our calls.

Since her election last July, we sent her two letters inviting her for a meeting to discuss radicalisation and extremism. We contacted her on 25 July 2016 and 15 February 2017. On both occasions, we received no reply (attached are the letters we sent)

Hanson’s main campaign election platform was to fight extremism. So when she refuses to meet one of the strongest voices fighting extremism, what does this tell you? Simple, it was just a mere empty election promise only to gain votes!

Pauline Hanson wants to show herself as a politician promoting transparency, clean politics and national security. So far what we …

Why I support the ban on face coverings

The debate on whether to ban the face covering has reached a point where there is talk of introducing a private members’ bill to ban it.

First and foremost I want to mention that as a Muslim, I support the bill.

Should the bill be designed only to help improve national security and to prevent terrorist attacks, then most Muslims would welcome the ban.

My concern is that members who introduced and support the ban have done so, to inflame islamophobia for electoral gains.

The reason I support the ban is as follows:

• Under the current circumstances of high extremism and high security scare of terrorist attacks on home soil, the ban could help in preventing security scare and calm fear in the community. It will help security agencies monitor extremists and might prevent attacks.

• Contrary to claims made by extremists, the burqa and the niqab are not part of the original teachings of Islam.

• There is no doubt that wearing the burqa or the niqab is an indication of extreme conservat…
