"You Must Comply, Resistance Is Futile"

"...Then we are left with only the option that the United States exercised to deal with terrorism." Defense Minister of India

MID-EAST REALITIES - www.MiddleEast.Org - Washington - 1/4/2001: The Americans and the Israelis are clearly running the show now -- aided by the many "client regimes" set up in key countries including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, UAE, Qatar, and Egypt; and with much strengthened alliances with other key countries including India and Turkey. As for the Europeans, when it comes to the Middle East, these days they are primarily used as money bags for Arafat and promoters of the apartheid-style "Peace Process" (no matter what the apologists try to call it); as well as for diplomatic support to further craft the new "New World Order" -- itself primarily of CIA, Pentagon and Treasury Department design.

Pakistan is clearly being terribly squeezed and threatened harder than ever before. General Musharraf has been given few choices -- he must assist the U.S. to assert control over the region, he must end support for the liberation struggle in Kashmir, and he must cooperate in recasting Pakistani society with special emphasis on the Muslim-oriented educational system which ironically heretofore has been primarily Saudi supported. If he does not comply, support for his regime will be withdrawn and his own country will be directly targeted and forced to submit.

When it comes to the Middle East -- in addition to the Hashemites, the al-Sauds, and the other lesser Arab "client-regimes" -- the best the Americans have for controlling the Palestinians is the Arafat regime, and they know it. So Arafat and his more-than-ever despised VIP entourage are now being forced to take a "strategic decision" to more totally control, co-opt and crush the liberation struggle in Palestine. If Arafat and cronies do not comply support for their regime with be withdrawn, the money will stop flowing, and the Palestinian people will be subjected to more direct and more naked forms of repression and subjugation.

Both India and Israel are now seizing the moment to enforce their own regional dictate, a la the Americans. Everything is reduced to "they are terrorists". The "you are either with us or against us" mantra has been gleefully seized upon by those who rule in Delhi and Jerusalem. The courageous fighters in Kashmir, along with those in Palestine, are ever so simplistically and erroneous reduced to mini-caricatures of Osama bin Laden. Decades of U.N. resolutions demanding Israeli and Indian recognition of basic Palestinian and Kashmiri rights are cast to the wind. Any semblance of historical awareness -- not to mention real justice, freedom, and democracy -- is not only forgotten but even those who raise the issues and remind the world of the complex historical context, not to mention those who try to help with tangible and financial assistance, now run the risk of being branded "supporters of terrorism".


An Israel-India joint committee on terrorism will meet in Israel for the first time this month to discuss common terror threats. The meeting was coordinated following India's request for assistance in establishing an anti-terror network. Last month Moslem separatists launched an assault on the Indian Parliament in New Delhi, killing eight persons. Earlier this month, Indian security services in the Kashmir apprehended five terrorists, some of whom are affiliated with the al-Qaeda network. The Indian government expressed interest in purchasing the "Arrow" anti-missile missile from Israel, which to date has not been supplied to foreign countries. Two weeks ago, political dialogue took place in New Delhi between an Israel delegation, including senior Foreign Ministry officials, and the head of the Indian Foreign Ministry. The Indian representatives said that they strongly desire to strengthen their ties with Israel. (Arutz 7 Israeli news service - affiliated with Israeli settlers movement).


By David R. Sands

[The Washington Times, Washington, 1/4/02]: Indian intelligence sources yesterday accused Pakistani security forces of encouraging armed Islamic extremists fleeing the U.S.-led offensive in Afghanistan to relocate to new camps in and around the disputed province of Kashmir.

Pakistan immediately denied the charges, but Indian sources insisted that the cadres are being relocated to fuel Pakistani-backed separatist movements in Kashmir and to divert "the anger and bitterness" of the fighters away from the government in Islamabad.

"You can take this information as coming from very reliable sources," said one Indian government official, who refused to speak on the record about the charges.

The Pakistan government yesterday angrily rejected the accusations, the latest in a series of escalating charges and countercharges as the South Asian nuclear powers face off in the wake of a Dec. 13 attack on the Indian Parliament building in New Delhi that killed 14 persons, including the five attackers. India has blamed Pakistani-supported extremist groups for the attack.

"Totally baseless, totally false," said Asad Hayauddin, press spokesman for the Pakistan Embassy here.

The charges "fit the profile of India's actions since September 11," Mr. Hayauddin said, "which is to malign and denigrate Pakistan's strong efforts in the war on terrorism."

According to the Indian intelligence sources, Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, which had extensive ties to Afghanistan's ousted fundamentalist Taliban regime, has been actively aiding Islamic fighters fleeing into Pakistan, particularly soldiers linked to Pakistan- and Kashmir-based Islamic fundamentalist groups.

Camps have been set up in Muzaffarabad, the capital of the section of Kashmir controlled by Pakistan, and in Abbotabad, a Pakistani summer-resort town near the Kashmiri border, to house fighters from the Jamaat-ul-Ulema-e-Islam and Jamaat-e-Islami, two Kashmiri resistance groups, the sources said.

In addition, according to the Indians, some 300 fighters from other guerrilla groups have been relocated from Kabul and Jalalabad in Afghanistan to established forward bases in Muzaffarabad and Kotli, another town in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir. The guerrillas are disarmed as they cross the Afghan border into Pakistan, only to be rearmed when they arrive at the camps, the Indians say.

U.S. military officials said they have no confirmation of the latest Indian accusations.

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has won praise from the Bush administration in recent days for cracking down on two leading Islamic extremist groups, although New Delhi contends that Pakistan has not done enough.

Pakistan contends that the groups fighting in Kashmir are indigenous independence movements and blames India for ignoring the popular will in the Muslim-majority province.

Islamabad has lodged its own complaints about Indian intelligence forces fomenting terrorism inside Pakistan.

Police in Quetta yesterday said they had seized a large cache of arms, ammunition and explosives that they said were being used by terrorists backed by the Indian intelligence agency known as the Research and Analysis Wing.

U.S. counterterrorist officials have long been concerned about links between Kashmir and Afghanistan militants.

Several of the victims of 1998 U.S. cruise-missile strike against an al Qaeda training post in Khowst, Afghanistan, were members of Kashmiri militant groups supported by Pakistani intelligence agents.

Private analysts have noted extensive links in the past between the Islamic armed groups in Kashmir and the ousted Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

Jane's, the authoritative British military intelligence reference, reported recently that a cluster of Kashmiri independence movements have routinely rotated their fighters through "operational tours" in Afghanistan, Central Asia and Pakistan itself.

Al Badr, one of the nearly two dozen Kashmiri armed groups, was founded in 1999 expressly to accommodate foreign volunteers fighting in Kashmir.

"We know the U.S. military is very concerned about a lot of these links," one Central Asian diplomat confirmed.

The New York Times this week reported that Gen. Musharraf has ordered the ISI to cut off its support for Islamic militant groups fighting in Kashmir and to close down its office that deals exclusively with such groups.

Leaders of a dozen Muslim groups called yesterday in an Islamabad press conference for Gen. Musharraf to transfer Pakistani troops from the western border with Afghanistan to the 1,800-mile border with India.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Aziz Ahmed Khan told reporters Pakistan had no intention of easing its surveillance along the Afghan border.

Arab Client Regimes Shaking
(January 30, 2002)
The first thing they do is cover your eyes. They make you strip to make sure you're not carrying anything. They replace your clothes with uniforms that are not clothes at all. They chain you by hand and foot. They drag you away and leave you on your own. They interrogate you. They say you are going to die if you won't talk. They feed you - you're not much good to them if you starve to death.

Torture and the Smile of Policeman Agadi
(January 30, 2002)
A few years ago Dr. Eyad Sarraj startled many when he published an article explaining "Why We Are All Suicide Bombers Now". Dr. Sarraj, Ph.D. from Harvard in psychology and a very cultured and secular individual, is Palestinian and lives in Gaza.

Black Voices For Peace - The Good and the Bad
(January 29, 2002)
Black Voices for Peace in Washington put on a good show last Monday, Martin Luther King's Birthday. For Blacks it was a well put-together and nicely produced program that went on for some 5 hours in a local downtown heart-of-D.C. church.

Arabs Threaten to Threaten; Israelis Act
(January 28, 2002)
The confused, bewildered, impotent, and divided Arab "leaders" -- mostly of course of the "client regimes" -- will be meeting in Beirut in March desperately trying even harder than usual to mask all of these realities.

Pakistan on Brink of Backlash, Chaos, War
(January 28, 2002)
India is likely to strike sooner or later, doing so on behalf of and in coordination with both Israel and the U.S. regardless of what those parties say in public. Whether India will wait for General Musharraf to loose control -- at that could come at any time -- is uncertain to everyone, probably including those in charge in New Delhi.

One War Criminal To Another
(January 27, 2002)
Fearing the possible public explosure of secrets known to very few, it appears one war criminal decided to do in another this week in Lebanon. The cycle of violence begetting violence, revenge leading to still more revenge, has not been broken in the Midldle East.

Zinni Embraces "Daddy Bear" Sharon Condemns "Mafia Godfather" Arafat
(January 27, 2002)
Americans and Israelis are essentially frolicking in bed together, all the more so in the aftermath of 11 September, all the while whispering under the covers about how they have truly screwed everyone else, most especially the gullible, weak, and confused Arabs from Arafat to Mubarak to Abdullah, et. al.

More Bloodshed Now; Possible Armagedon In The Future
(January 27, 2002)
At the moment Israel is Goliath in the Middle East; and American is Hercules in the world. But it will not always be this way; and the seeds of potential cataclysm, indeed of Armagadon, are in fact now growing like weed

U.S. Warns, Squeezes Arafat, Saudis
(January 26, 2002)
By threatening to desert the Arafat Regime the Americans are sending a much larger message to the rulers in the Middle East and especially at this moment to the Saudi Regime. The message: If you dare defy us, if you don't do what you are there to do, if you think you can get along without us support you; well think again.

Arafat Deserted; Region Boiling
(January 25, 2002)
The Arab "leaders" having deserted Yasser Arafat, as well as the Palestinian people. The terrible weakness and divisions of what is known as "the Arab world" are more visible than ever now.

Arafat Again In Exile? Oh No!
(January 24, 2002)
OH NO! Just the thought of Arafat going back into exile, continuing to hold to all the power and money and imagery, and traveling the world again with his sensely slogans, babbling ways, near zero credibility, and terrible record of corruption and ineptitude, is enough to make long-time supporters of the Palestinian struggle for true self-determination and real independence cringe.

Washington Gives Israelis the Wink and the Nod - Plus of course the Means
(January 24, 2002)
While the U.S. and Israeli military, and the CIA and Mossad, forge ever closer ties in the new crusade to remake the entire Middle East in the opening years of the 21st century, just as the Brits and the French did in the opening years of the last century, the Israelis also continue their assassination campaign not only of Palestinians but also of former friends and allies.

(January 23, 2002)
"Your silence and inaction can no longer be justified by any excuse: Shimon, you are a partner in crime... You have imprisoned an entire people for over a year with a degree of cruelty unprecedented in the history of the Israeli occupation. Your government is trampling three million people..."

(January 23, 2002)
"'We are turning ourselves into the kind of deceitful, ruthless people whom bin Laden imagines us to be" "Minus the torture, the United States is now doing what most Arab regimes have been doing for decades: arresting their brutal "Islamist" enemies, holding them incommunicado, chained and hooded, while preparing unfair trials."

British Support for Israel and Sharon
(January 23, 2002)
Take the Middle East. When Blair welcomed Yasser Arafat to Downing Street following 11 September, it was widely reported that Britain was backing justice for the Palestinians. Editorialists drew a favourable comparison with the bellicose Bush administration.

(January 22, 2002)
From down under these two articles from the Sydney Morning Herald today, a newspaper with unusually thoughtful converage of world affairs. In Saudi Arabia there is a trembling now and a rush to try to distance themselves form the Americans one way or another.

Thousands of Al Qaeda and Pakistanis may have "escaped" Afghanistan; Bin Laden possibly among them
(January 21, 2002)
Kashmir remains the flashpoint. "The situation is bloody explosive," a senior Pakistani diplomat says, suggesting that Musharraf has not been given enough credit by the Indian government for the "sweeping changes" he's brought to Pakistan.

Thousands demand Arafat's release
(January 20, 2002)
Thousands of Palestinians marched through the Gaza Strip on Sunday protesting at the Israeli blockade of Yasser Arafat's headquarters in the West Bank town of Ramallah. The Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, has said Mr Arafat is now effectively a prisoner of Israel.

(January 20, 2002571570)
What Israel (with continuing U.S. and European help) has done to the Palestinian People "is the largest, most carefully planned and longest ethnic cleansing operation in modern history. The population of 530 towns and villages have been expelled in 1948, removing 85 per cent of the Palestinians in the land that became Israel. Those who did not suffer this fate in the remaining part of Palestine are now in the grip of the most brutal, longest and only occupation in the world."

America grabs for more power and domination, risks future revolution and explosion
(January 16, 2002)
Just as it did in the Middle East in years past, the U.S. is now positioning regimes and its military and economic tentacles to take in the riches of central Asia. That's really what these struggles are really all about in the end, power and wealth. The daily headlines and the various slogans and clashes actually serve to mask and obscure this far deeper and far more important reality.

Hezbollah and Lebanon Next U.S./Israeli Targets
(January 15, 2002566)
The Americans, and Israelis, are out of control now. The rather laughable "Arab League" is in fact scheduled to meet in Beirut in March. They may find themselves facing the wrath and revenge of the Americans who are determined to make the world safe for themselves and the Israelis, and unsafe for all who dare oppose the Empire.

Christian Americans Want Crusade - Was/Is Osama Right?
(January 13, 2002)
George W. Bush let it out of the bag less than a week after 911 when he publicly discussed the new "crusade" upon which American was now engaged. They shut him up public anyway. And as for all that American help to the Afghani people... The reality is millions are on the verge of starvation and the country can be lickened to a "slaughterhouse". Someone should ask the Vietnamese, Cambodians, Laotians, Iraqis...etc. about American humanitarian assistance.

Arab nations leaving Palestinians to face Israel alone
(January 12, 2002)
"The Arab world is unlikely to remain backward and divided forever," says one of the quoted commentators. True enough. But while it does, and while it is saddled with the inept and corrupt "client regimes" who prey on their own people and miserably squander the resources, the culture, and the history, of this once vital region, the whole Middle East is a seething cauldron of still growing hatreds and grievances whose eruptions in the 21st century now well begun are likely to be far greater than all those of the bloody 20th century now past.

Toward a World at War - Syria Fears, Indians Prepare
(January 10, 2002)
While the Syrians, Iraqis and others prepare for the coming American strikes; and while the Indians and Pakistanis prepare for a possible cataclysmic clash; the Israelis are preparing to further manipulate American policies and also preparing to strike out on their own against all who oppose their brutal military subjugation of the Palestinians -- probably to do so when other even bigger fires elsewhere have much of the world's attention.

US Military Heads For Pakistan, Reorganizes to Remain in Region, Prepare the Way for Global American Companies
(January 9, 2002)
The U.S. military is preparing to go much more publicly into Pakistan, and to establish a long-term presence in the region. The American corporations and banks will soon follow. For in the end its really all about great wealth and power on a global scale.

Attack Syria Next Insists Former NATO Commander and White House Chief of Staff
(January 8, 2002)
Target Syria even before Iraq says former NATO Commander and White House Chief of Staff Alexander Haig. American is on the loose, on the rampage, more and more dangerous all the time it seems.

Saudi royal family 'in complete panic' during recent riots
(January 6, 2002)

(January 5, 2002)
Both Kashmir and Palestine are bleeding badly. And in the new world of Pax America and the "War on Terrorism" the Israelis are intent on keeping the Palestinians essentially imprisoned on Bantustans while the Indians see this as their moment to undermine the liberation struggle in Kashmir.

The New "New World Order" - Israel and India Gleefully Follow America's Lead
(January 4, 2002)
Both India and Israel are now seizing the moment to enforce their own regional dictate, a la the Americans. Everything is reduced to "they are terrorists". The "you are either with us or against us" mantra has been gleefully seized upon by those who rule in Delhi and Jerusalem. The courageous fighters in Kashmir, along with those in Palestine, are ever so simplistically and erroneous reduced to mini-caricatures of Osama bin Laden.

CIA, Israel, and Arafat force Palestinian newspaper to close
(January 3, 2002544)
"If you're not with us, you're against us." The CIA, the Mossad, the Shinbet, and the military -- these are the groups now in charge. And that of course is what happens when a regime like that of Yasser Arafat's puts its fate, and indeed its very survival, in the hands of the intelligence agencies and under the table financial and political deals that would never be possible if they were known.

Both India and Kashmiri Fighters Issue New Threats
(January 2, 2002)
Threat and Counter-threat in the Sub-continent while Pakistan is essentially an occupied country at this point. General President Musharraff has allowed U.S. forces into the country, the CIA is building up its presence, and tensions throughout Pakistan are growing. There are rumored "contingency" plans to either destroy or grab Pakistan's nuclear weapons should Musharraf's tenuous grip on power in coordination with the U.S. fail.

Israel and U.S. Get Ready To Finally Topple Iraqi Regime
(January 2, 2002540)
It's the CIA, Mossad, and the military that are in charge now; preparing to enforce a Pax Americana Israelica throughout the Middle East region.
