Weekend Reading - MER FlashBack to 1979:

The Long, Tragic Road to 9/11 Began
Decades Before at Camp David and Beyond

MIDDLEEAST.ORG - MER - Washington - 22 April:   This Interview with the Egyptian Minister of State for Foreign Affairs the year after the historic Camp David agreement between Israel, the United States and Egypt contains historic insights of considerable significance.  Boutros Ghali went on to become Secretary-General of the United Nations.  President Jimmy Carter was defeated by Ronald Reagan in 1980.  The Egyptian President, Anwar Sadat, was assassinated at a military parade by persons in his own army in 1981.  And over the next two decades the history of the Middle East became more bloody and more complex as Israel proceeded with colonization, all facilitated and financed by the U.S.,  refusing after all to allow a Palestinian State.   The Clash of Civilizations and the era of suicide bombers soon began in a sense culminating more than two decades later in the events now known as "9/11" and the aftermath that is now our present world.   The sad and tragic path from the events discussed in this interview to 9/11 is oftentimes convoluted, complex, and indirect; yet the connections from the past to the present are very real and of great importance to understand and appreciate.

"The Palestinians Will Have Their Independence!"

Boutros Ghali Interviewed in depth by Mark Bruzonsky, Associate Editor of WORLDVIEW Magazine, in Cairo in 1979

MER FlashBack - Wiping Out Palestinian Nationalism

MER FLASHBACK - Five Long Years Ago: Finally even Arafat's own Fateh is beginning to put into print what has long been suspected and whispered -- the Palestinian people have been tricked and duped and snookered.

Fahd and Reagan - MEI FlashBack 20 Long Years Ago
(April 26, 2005)
As for Arab dignity, after meeting yesterday with Bush-Cheney-Rice to plot the next steps in the 'New World Order' crusade, the Saudi Crown Prince was taken by his handlers and advisers to a local American diner where this man of the people had a photo op with some common folk looking more foolish and more out-of-place than ever.

Stealth Assassination of Yasser Arafat Resurfaces
(April 25, 2005)
As has become the usual when it comes to matters relating to Israel and the Middle East nearly all the mass corporate media in the U.S. and Europe allow themselves to be manipulated by governments, lobby-groups, and on-the-take commentators and pundits in ways that severely distort or cover up major events. Such was the case with what MER termed even as it unfolded last November the 'Stealth Assassination' of Yasser Arafat.

IRAQ AUTOPSY - FlashBack 2 Years
(April 2, 2005)
"The United States has embarked on an imperial adventure in the Middle East. This is the true meaning of the war against Iraq... Washington is intoxicated by the vision of imposing a Pax Americana on the Arab world... The fatal flaw is that this is not a purely American project. Rather it must be seen as the culmination of America's strategic partnership with Israel..." - Patrick Seale

U.S. Behind Original Iranian Nuclear Program
(April 1, 2005)
Hard as it may be for most Americans to understand, contemporary Iran is far more democratic than the regime of the Shah it replaced against great American support for the tyrant. Hard as it may be for most Americans to appreciate as well, contemporary Iran is in reality more democratic than many of the key U.S. client-regimes in the region -- including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Egypt and Jordan. The hypocrisy and deceitfulness of those in control of the power of the American Empire seems never-ending. But only once and awhile do exposés of the following kind appear in the corporate mass media; and in this case it was buried away on page 15 with a meek headline even though preparations to attack Iran are well-underway and the Bush-Sharon War Summit is about to take place.
