‘Hatred’s Kingdom’ – a review

Hatred's  Kingdom

Hatred’s Kingdom

Saudi Arabia is the fountainhead of global terrorism. It has camouflaged terror sponsorship under religious support. The world knows this and Dr.Dore Gold explains this with lots of reference material. Most of the reference material are of Saudi government origin.

The book starts from the 1700s tracing the birth and growth of Saudi Arabia as a tribal conglomerate. The way the Al Saud clan monopolized the other tribes, how they bought peace with the puritanical Wahhabi sect of Islam, the massacres that were conducted under religious cover, the fall of the Ottoman empire , the subsequent rise of the Wahhabi preachers and the intricate complicity of the Saud family in the growth of the intolerant Wahhabi sect – all these are dealt with in detail in this book.

The details are mind boggling; reference materials are so voluminous that they themselves could form a book on their own.

The gore, the debauchery, the internecine fights that result in gory massacre of the non-Muslims ( as per Wahhabi definition ), the support that Saudi Arabia provides to terrorist groups even post 9/11 are frightening and troubling at the same time.

The US is not criticized by Dr.Gold even as the former is involved in many covert and overt support activities for Saudi Arabia due to the oil reserves.

A riveting and compelling read to anybody interested in knowing the origins of global terrorism.

What if you don’t read this book :  You wouldn’t lose anything except that you wouldn’t know why most of the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.

What if you read this book : You would start paying attention to news every time a Saudi prince pays a visit to the US.

What if you finish the book in one-sitting : You could be writing a review like what i am doing.

Any cautions : Yes. Gore, disturbing details. Could result in you losing belief in humanity.

Burn Israel, shall we ?

‘Burn Israel’ seems to be the most acceptable solution according to the world media.

Let us take a step back. 

How did this latest Israel-Palestine flare-up come about ?

Did Israel start the war ? Did they start the helicopter attack on Gaza?
Did Hamas not provoke the fight ? Did they not rain rockets on Tel Aviv? Are rockets fired to shower rose petals ? So, if they attack you , should you keep quiet and proclaim ‘Ahimsa paramo Dharmaha‘ Non-violence is the best virtue ?

Let us get our facts straight.

The obnoxious ISIS advances on Iraq, capturing its cities and destroying Shia mosques. There was no way of stopping them. With Saudi backing, they progressed. This is one part. 

In Palestine, the Hamas government couldn’t even pay salaries to its 40,000 employees. Its influence started to wane when it entered into a compromise with Fatah, its own opposition group in Palestine. Its main sponsor Saudi Arabia was beginning to back ISIS to capture Iraq. If that happens then Hamas would become obsolete.

Syria’s President  Bashar al-assad was the other main benefactor of Hamas. He fought with other Islamic rebels in his own country and that antagonized Hamas. So another funding source dried up.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood government supported Hamas. Now that Mohammad Morsi has been ousted, the military backed government of Egypt stopped support. Yet another funding source evaporated.

An unified Iraq and Syria under a caliphate would sound the death knell to all other sundry groups like Hamas and Hezhollah. Therefore, to remain relevant, Hamas has to act, a last desperate death defying action, and hence chose the common enemy-Israel. Hitting Israel would help galvanize the islamic world and at least help the temporary life sustaining fund from Saudi Arabia and other theocratic states. 

Israel would anyways respond in a heavy manner and thus would help Hamas achieve its fund target. More so, the month is also auspicious. So Hamas capitalizes on the charity of the islamic nations. Donating to charity is ordained in the religion and Hamas stooped so low to take advantage of the noble gesture. It even spoiled twice,the truce brokered by Egypt. Need to achieve target funding you see.

Can’t depend on old ally Iran as well. Ahmadinejad has since retired and the new leader wants to be friends with the US and therefore wouldn’t want to get into the wrong side of Israel.

So, with  Saudi, Syria and Egypt having been effectively antagonized, Iran having become impotent in so far as funding is concerned and Gaza’s borders with Egypt and Israel walled and no traffic of material and people possible, Hamas’s only way to relevance is to ‘fight’ Israel and thereby elicit concessions from the former countries.

Pretending not to know any of these, the too generalistic media proclaims otherwise.

Now, shall we burn Israel ?

Stupidity and Idiocy

Stupidity is related to Idiocy.

Stupidity is defined as behaviour that shows a lack of good sense or judgement while Idiocy is explained as extremely stupid behaviour.

So I would define idiocy as being consistently stupid, each time more stupid than the previous time. No, I don’t mean Rahul Gandhi here. No use flogging a dead chameleon. There are better stupids this time.

Let us get into the Idiocy game.

ISIS attacks Iraq and Syria. Saudi Arabia finances ISIS. Iran is expected to retalliate in case ISIS advances further. That means Iran could get advantage in Iraq.

But Saudi Arabia cannot let Iran gain any advantage. So, what is the best way to halt Iran’s advance into Iraq ? Divert attention from Iraq and make people focus on a common enemy.

Who else other than Israel ? If Israel is dragged into some conflict with Palestine Iran would be forced to divert attention from Iraq. So, what happened ? Israel was lured into Palestine. A small attack started. Then Hamas, the henchman, got into action and fired rockets into Israel. And Israel prepared for a full-fledged attack. Hamas’s operator Iran is now forced to concentrate only on Israel via Hamas thus effectively looking away from Iraq.

And the ISIS continues its advance in Iraq with Saudi support.

What does this mean to America ? The global policeman gets a ‘legitimate’ reason to send in troops into Iraq and provide stability so that Saudi Arabia could mind its business of minting money by manipulating oil prices.

Coming back to Idiocy. Who are the stupids who exhibit Idiocy ?

The common man, me, you and others who need to do a day job to eat two square meals and pay Saudi Arabia for oil.

Of-course Palestinians join us in idiocy.
