Is The Whole World Going Mad!

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Islamic Revolution, Modern World, News, Security Council, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 16/10/2018 by floroy1942

We see all over the world fighting going on and it will not stop. When I was young the world was at peace, except for the Russians and they did not do anything except make threats. The world was a peace in the sixties, but today the world has moved on and war is everywhere. In the Middle East and the Far East war is everywhere. There are demonstrations all across the globe and it will never end unless the governments does something about it.

It is up to the United Nations to do something about it and stop the wars that are created havoc across the world, but they sit on their fat backsides and do nothing except complain about the wars that going on. They should gather together an army and stop these wars. In 1960 they took action against North Korea and put a stop to it so the world could live in peace once again. But they do nothing about the wars in Syria and other places except complain about it. They should gather an army and stop these many wars that are going around across the globe and finish it once and for all.

Demonstrations are going on in South America and other countries, and this has to stop. Let the governments listen to the people and make changes so that everyone can live in peace. But they do not listen to people and this leads to demonstrations across the whole the world. Even in Europe there are demonstrations in most countries, although Europe is living in peace. The governments should listen to the people and make changes.

The world is getting darker and the people are rebellious about the governments who have no mind about the people. The governments continue to make their own rules without disregard for the people. They are the governments which rule the countries and it a sorry state of affairs that they do not care for the people.

I can see that the whole world will be in turmoil in few years time, and the governments will be wiped out as the people and will turn to anarchy. I am 74 years old and I do not wish to see anarchy in my lifetime.

Migrants

                                             Immigrants Who Demonstrate

Europe is being flooded with migrants over the past few years, and it doesn’t stop. There are many migrants that are looking for a job in Europe, but many are in camps and the they grow bigger. Paris is overflowing with migrants and they are camping all over the place, the same goes for Germany, Italy and Spain and it has to stop.

Why don’t we stop them coming in? Spain is taking migrants from the sea and number is getting greater. We cannot allow the economic migrants to enter Europe, for they are not at war with the terrorists and they look for jobs.

Europe is getting overcrowded with immigrants and there are not enough jobs for the majority of them. They live off the handouts given by the governments, and they do not care. Most say they are from Syria but that is a lie, for many come from India, Pakistan and Africa. The real migrants from Syria are in need of help, but that is different.

There are so many economic migrants that outnumber the Syrians and that is a shambles. The government must track down these migrants and throw them out of Europe, and send them back to their country. We cannot look after them all, and they should be only the migrants from Syria.

If we accept these people they will live in Britain until the war is over. They cannot give citizenship in the U.K. for they will have to be sent back when the war is over. Already Britain is overcrowded with the economic migrants and this should not happen. We have to take care of our own people.

Britain is becoming a disaster zone with a shortage of money and jobs and it will get worse. When all these immigrants start making trouble in the U.K. it will be a powder keg and we will see riots in the streets. We already have a few riots by the teenagers and Muslims because they cannot find a job. We should give jobs to British people and not the migrants. For they are taking jobs away from the natives of England, for they do not want a huge salary and they do not want a salary as high as Englishman. Firms are happy to be given migrants work because they do not pay as high as the Englishman. This has to stop, for the country will in a uproar when in years to come.

The State Of The World

This world is getting worse by the minute, and we see whole countries in turmoil. The people are protesting against the government for their rights. Such is the world today, country after country riot against the government, but they do not care about the people. They pass laws that have nothing to do with the people and they send them to prison for protesting.

All over the world there are demonstrations about the poor people who cannot survive without begging. As the world gets worse this will rise for most people will have nothing to do but beg on the streets. Already we have seen an escalation of people on the streets begging for a handout.

Already there are thousands of refugees in Paris who are living in tents and under bridges, and who is to say that it will not get worse. Across the whole world there are refugees who starve to death because they have no food. Look at Africa, where there are millions of refugees who are starving to death. It is the same across the whole world as the poor people starve to death, and the governments do nothing about it.

It is time the governments do something, but the members of parliament are happy with their lives. They have nice houses and plenty of money, and they do not care about the poor.

All across the world it is the same, as members of parliament go about their daily business without a care in the world about the poor. Many people are starving to death because they have no food and the governments do nothing about it.

We see many demonstrations across the world and it is getting worse. In Brazil, Africa and many other parts of the world we see people who are fed up with the governments and it is going to end up a catastrophe. We are going to find anarchy across the world as these people rise up because they are dissatisfied with the governments, and we will see the governments disappear.

Murders and injuries are common in all countries and this has to stop. We have the police, but they do not do enough as the murders continue, for they cannot track down everyone who has killed someone.

It is time we stop this and bring back hanging for the killers who have murdered someone. But the E.U. has banned hanging for killers, and the prisons are overflowing. Killers are freed after six or seven years and they do not serve a lifetime for killing someone. I hope when the U.K. breaks away from Europe that we will bring back hanging, and that will stop the murders which happen every day.

I wish this could happen all across the world, for there will be far less murders for fear of the death sentence. I do not condone the death sentence, but it will stop murders across the world.

The world is getting in a bad shape, and we have to do something about it.

Violence

Posted in America, Brazil, Britain, Demonstration, European Union, Government, Human Rights, Justice, News, Teen Violence with tags , , , , on 26/06/2018 by floroy1942

Saturday Night

Why is there is there violence all over the world? In every country it’s crazy, for all countries have attacks on humans and there is no stopping it. The police do their best to stop the violence but they are not having enough clout. In most countries there is attacks against the police and innocent civilians and I wonder if it will ever stop. The whole world seems to be going mad, for we have demonstrations on the southern continent of America and it will not stop. We have mass killings in Britain, especially in London and the police are not able to stop it. What is wrong with mankind these days.

When I was young there were very few killings, and perpetrators were hung by the neck. This has been outlawed through most of the world except America. But in America those on death row are getting less and less. We need to bring back hanging for killers, and the deaths of innocent people will get less. I hope when Britain leaves the EU that we will bring back hanging. Killers are sentenced to 10 years in Britain but are out in three to four years.

This will not stop the killings so long as this law is in place, and it will get worse. Violence on the streets is getting worse as the youth feel they can do this without a long sentence, even if the police catch them. Old folks are are robbed and killed even in their own homes, and not much is done about it. We need more police on the streets to stop this.

It is not only in England but all over the world as gangs do what they want. In Brazil and Venezuela there are mass demonstrations and people are getting killed. The police fire tear gas but this does not stop the violence. Since the 50’s we have become a more violent people and the governments are to blame. They rob the poor and middle class to make themselves richer. This has to stop.

In the future we will see anarchy as the violence gets bigger. We will see the governments all over the world ousted once and for all as the situation gets worse. I am glad I am 74 and not see this, for the young will have a difficult time in the future.

What Is Wrong With The World

Sudan

Watch the news and you find there is trouble throughout the world in most countries. I really am sick of seeing demonstrations in most countries across the world for one reason or other. Mostly it is the governments who are to blame for this unrest. In Sudan the price of bread has more than doubled due to the government, and this has led to mass protests by the people. In other countries we see mass protests against the government for various things and it is spreading all across the globe.

In Venezuela the people have been protesting against President Maduro for months, and he is steadfast in not stepping down. Unrest is spreading all across the world against the governments that rule, and it is not likely to stop.

When will the Earth return to peace? I fear that this is never going to happen because of the constant truobles in countries all across the world.

We are heading for the destruction of the human race on this planet, not only because of the unrest that presides in most countries, but also the threat of pollution. You may think that this is all rubbish, but I for one can see it coming. Not only because of the unrest in countries but also the contamination of our atmosphere.

Air Contamination In Paris.

Unless we change our policies within a very short time our children will be dying from the pollution caused by us. There are plans to get rid of diesel and petrol cars by 2040 but that may be too late. With over a billion cars and trucks on the road, most of them powered by diesel, we could see people not living to a ripe old age as they do now. Many will die young due to the excessive pollution of our atmosphere.

Air Contamination

I have written about this before, but no-one takes any notice for their lives are all about what they can get out of life. Everyone wants to be rich and afford smart cars and beautiful houses, but this never happens.

It is about time the people of the world start doing something to improve the atmosphere, and put an end to the trouble across all countries, otherwise we will not be long on this planet.

A New Year Is Coming

Posted in America, Britain, Demonstration, Environment, European Union, Health, Islamic Revolution, News, Nuclear Weapons, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 31/12/2017 by floroy1942

Our World

Tonight we celebrate the beginning of a new year, but what will it bring us? I don’t think there will be much change in the world as the wars will continue, and demonstrations will be as prevalent as this year. People are dissatisfied with their governments and the rules they are making so we will see demonstrations all across the world.

Governments will not change their plans to satisfy the people they rule, and there are many people in all countries who will not accept this. We are sure to find trouble in the new year as the demonstrations and wars continue unabated.

The whole world is a mess except in a few countries where the people put up with the plans the governments make. The war against ISIL and other rebel groups is far from over and the war will continue, but for how long? Some Muslims want to rule the world and it will not stop unless they wiped out.

The United Nations has done nothing to fight terrorism since the Korean War, and they should get involved by sending troops to wipe out these terror groups. It is the only way the world will get to be peaceful again. The trouble is they sit on there fat asses and do nothing. I had hoped that the new leader of the United Nations would at least do something against these terrorists, but he has done nothing.

What with the atmospheric pollution and the wars all over the globe, we are heading for major wars between nations and the end of mankind on this planet.

We have to do something about it or we will see total destruction of our home planet. Countries have to come together and sort out their differences before the whole world goes mad.

Unfortunately this is not likely to happen as there are too many differences between countries. There have been attempts at making peace in the past but these have all come to nothing, for there is still fighting between countries. Demonstrations have sprung up in the last twenty years or so because people are dissatisfied with the way the governments rule their countries. A prime example is Venezuela that is ruled by President Maduro. In this country he rules with an iron fist, and there are constant demonstrations against him. Its the same in other countries.

Another thing we that could cause the end of humanity on this planet is the pollution levels in our atmosphere. There are well over a million cars and lorries on our roads and each of these are causing the pollution to get worse. When will it end?

2

Pretty soon all of humanity will be going around wearing masks when they venture outside, just as in some Chinese and Middle East cities. The pollution levels are rising yearly with all the cars and lorries on our roads. We have to something about it!

It is expected that electric cars will replace petrol and diesel engines by 2040, but that may be too late. By then the pollution will have risen to such a state that the air will be full of poisonous gases, and people will get cancer and not be able to live a long life. The current generation does not think about the fate of our children and what they will face in the future. We have to start thinking about the future of humanity on this planet, and what the future of our children will be.

What Of The Future

Posted in America, Britain, Demonstration, Environment, European Union, Human Rights, Immigrants, Islamic Revolution, News, Nuclear Proliferation with tags , , , , on 11/12/2017 by floroy1942

It seems to me that the whole world is going mad, for we have unrest all across the globe from the Far East to America. In many countries people are demonstrating and fighting the government for what they see as human rights and bad management. Many people are dissatisfied with their governments handling of crisis that effect them all, such as low wages, starvation in some countries, and the way governments are handling problems.

We also have Muslim terrorists everywhere threatening the stability of countries across the world. It makes me wonder what they hope to achieve, do they want the whole world to be Muslim?

Daily we see demonstrations in many countries, and not forgetting the violence as people show their hatred for the government.

When I was young the biggest demonstration in Britain was from the miners who were dissatisfied with the government of the day and the decisions made by Margret Thatcher. But since the sixties we have seen violent demonstrations with young people setting fire to buildings and cars, robbing shops, and battling with the police. Now we see huge gatherings of people marching through cities and towns all across the world causing destruction.  This is not the way the world should be.

Ever since ISIL came out of the woodwork we have seen complete destruction of many cities in Iraq and neighbouring countries, and it will take years to revitalise these cities. Most of the buildings will have to be demolished and a new construction programme initiated. This will cost untold billions, and where will it come from? Your guess is as good as mine!

We have seen millions of Africans on the verge of starvation, and food is not getting to the them fast enough. Many countries ignore the plight of these people and they are dying by the hundreds every day. Children are starving to death from the lack of food. Very few nations have sent food to these people and many are unable to survive.

We have seen millions of refugees coming to Europe because they cannot continue living in there own country and want a better life, and its not over yet. Governments must see that the people are fed so they will not need to move to Europe. But so few nations have taken the necessary measures to see that this happens.

The biggest threat to the whole world is the problem with North Korea and their nuclear weapons. Trump is consistently making threats of a nuclear war with the country as Kim Jong-Un enlarges his nuclear capability and threatens the USA with attacks. Trump has already said that he will annihilate the whole country if Kim Jong-Un decides to attack the USA. The fall-out from such an action would turn the whole world  into devastation, and millions of people would die as the whole world ends up being covered in radioactive clouds.

When will this stop and people of the world can live in peace once again? I doubt if this will happen in my lifetime. It is sad to say that if we keep going the way we are, we will see the annihilation of the human race on this planet.

Demonstration Mania

Violent Demonstrations Against Trump In America

Violent Demonstrations Against Trump In America

What is it with people these days that they always want to demonstrate on the streets, smash shop windows and burn cars? Almost all demonstrations eventually turn out to be violent even though they start peacefully. I think it is because of teenagers and young men who create mayhem wherever they go because they enjoy it. The main reason for this is because their parents and schools have not taught them respect for others and their views.

Sadly, it indicates a change in mentality among the youth these days from when I was young, for we got our kicks from playing football on the streets or other innocent games, but now violence is the key word. But that is not the main reason why we have demonstrations today.

In many countries it is through dissatisfaction with the government because they seem incapable of running a country the way people want. Other times it is because they do not agree with the majority view, as in the Brexit campaign in Britain. Although the majority of people voted for Brexit, those who voted to stay in the European Union could not accept this and began demonstrating, sometimes violently, on the streets.

In America the same thing happened with the presidential election because Donald Trump won. Now the streets are full of violent demonstrations against him. No-one seems to be patient and willing to wait and see what sort of president he will be. He may be the best thing that has happened to America in generations, on the other hand he could be the worst, but people have decided not give him a chance.

When I was a young man the people were always willing to see what the next Prime Minister would do for the country. Some were good and some were bad, but you only ever found that out in time.

It is not only America and Great Britain where violent demonstrations take place, it is in the majority of countries all over the world from Hong Kong to New York. As people get more and more violent you can be sure this will mean a very difficult future for mankind. We have reached an era where those who lose cannot accept it and want to force change to their way of thinking.

Many will say we are headed for complete anarchy in the world, which will have dire consequences on the future of mankind. If we cannot live in peace with each other then what future does mankind have.

We have to start changing the way in which we educate our children. We have to impress on them that violence is not the way to live their lives, that there are rules by which we live, and violence is not one of them. We have to teach them to respect the views of another even if they do not agree, and not turn to violence. Otherwise, we will all eventually be swallowed by anarchy.

Pathetic Protesters

Naiivity At Its Most Obvious

Naivety At Its Most Obvious

It was interesting to read today about a large group of young people in London protesting about Britain’s involvement in airstrikes against ISIS. It makes me wonder at the naïvety of some, who I am sure consider themselves to be intelligent. What do they think the world will be like if these terrorists are given a free rein to achieve their goals?

ISIS are the most vicious and brutal killers on the planet, yet these people want to do nothing to stop them. Are they content to allow them to set up their own state in the Middle East? What do they think will happen once ISIS have achieved this goal? Do these people really think they will stop there?

Corbyn - The Biggest Idiot In World Politics

Corbyn – The Biggest Idiot In World Politics

To me they are as stupid as Jeremy Corbyn the current Labour Leader who seems to think that we can negotiate a peace settlement with these people. If it were up to me this idiot would be sent out to Syria to negotiate with ISIS and we would see how long he keeps his head on his shoulders.

This group has already infiltrated and carried out terrorist attacks in surrounding countries like Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and very many others with the obvious intention of reaching their goal of making the entire world Islamic. Once they have a country of their own do these idiots really think that Europe will be safe?

Already they have infiltrated many European countries with their followers disguised as refugees, and it is clear that their purpose is to begin attacks here, Paris being the first, but you can be sure that many more will follow.

ISIS Atrocity

ISIS Atrocity

It makes me wonder how soon these protesters will be baying for blood if members of their families are the victims of a future attack on our shores.

It must be clear to anyone with intelligence that this group must be stopped from achieving its goal otherwise they will plunge the whole world into war. Their barbarity knows no bounds as we have seen by the public beheading of their prisoners on TV.

Due to the lack of action by the United Nations it has fallen to NATO and like-minded Middle East countries to take on these people and put them out of business, and that includes the United Kingdom. If we do not take part in the air strikes against ISIS do these protesters think ISIS will leave us alone and not commit attacks here? How naive can you get? Do they for one minute think that if these terrorists manage by some miracle to conquer the rest of Europe they will stop at Calais and leave us alone?

War is a terrible thing and many innocent people get caught in the crossfire, but to do nothing and hope the problem goes away is impossible.

Iraq And Syria Attacks

Iraq And Syria Attacks

Just suppose that when Hitler came to power and started WW2, should all the European nations have held up their hands and surrendered to him without a shot being fired? We all know about the sheer brutality of his regime, but who would want to live permanently under the heel of the Nazi jackboot? We fought and we won, just as we will win this war with ISIS.

The one thing we do need is ‘boots on the ground’ to use an American expression. The problem there is the complication posed by Assad and the problems in Syria. If an agreement can be reached there all the fighting nations need to put in a joint force to finally crush these parasites.

To The Protesters - If This Was Your Mother/Wife?

To The Protesters – If This Was Your Mother/Wife Would You Still Be A Pacifist?

But of course that will be absolute taboo so far as these protesters are concerned. They will never rally around the flag unless their parents or children are the victims of a savage terrorist attack. Perhaps the sight of their mother, father or baby daughter getting their throats cut on TV would be enough to change their pacifist views?

If Islamic State are to be stopped all people and all countries need to work together to stamp out this menace to humanity.

Just Like I Said It Would Be!

Hamas Rocket Fired From Civilian Area

Hamas Rocket Fired From Civilian Area

A report out today by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR) is blaming Israel for all the deaths in Gaza during last summer’s fighting. According to them the 2014 war with Hamas has put their “adherence to international law in doubt!”

I am not Israeli nor am I a sympathizer, I am completely neutral with regard to Israel, but this is exactly what I was expecting from the aftermath of the war. It angers me when I see the finger of blame automatically pointed in their direction without anyone taking the trouble to examine the facts. And I might add, a terrorist organization getting away with such blatant deceit.

Makarim Wibisono Of The UNHCR

Makarim Wibisono Of The UNHCR

Special rapporteur Makarim Wibisono criticised Israel’s conduct during the July-August conflict. He said, “The ferocity of destruction and high proportion of civilian lives lost in Gaza cast serious doubts over Israel’s adherence to international humanitarian law principles of proportionality, distinction and precautions in attack,”

'Child Murderers Israel' How Naive!

‘Child Murderers Israel’
How Naive!

Once again, and I repeat, once again Hamas has managed to steer all blame for the war on Israel. Most people do not take the trouble to see what is really happening and accept the Hamas propaganda hook, line, and sinker!

Israeli Leaflet Drop On Gaza

Israeli Leaflet Drop On Gaza

No-one seems interested in the proven fact that Israel dropped leaflets to the inhabitants of areas warning them of an impending shelling, and Hamas fighters drove them back into their homes at gunpoint when they tried to reach a safe area! Also forgotten is that Hamas fired their rockets from deep within housing areas where civilians lived, knowing full well that when the Israeli’s returned fire they would be killed .

Iron DomeSomeone once said, “The Israeli’s have their Iron Dome rocket defence system for protection while Hamas has civilian casualties.” Never was a truer word spoken.  But do people stop and think before demonstrating in the streets against Israel – Do they hell!

West Bank Settlement

West Bank Settlement

I am not saying that Israel as a nation is blameless in this whole affair with the Palestinians for they are not. Their continued stealing of Palestinian land with their so-called Settlement Programme is wrong and should not be allowed. But this does not mean that they should carry all the blame for the high death toll in Gaza during these spats with Hamas.

Rocket Launcher Beside UN Building

Rocket Launcher Beside UN Building

This whole scenario has been repeated on a regular basis by Hamas, where they start the conflict, in this case with the unprovoked rocket attack on Israel, and then ensure that as many of their own people are killed as possible and see that Israel takes the blame. I am sorry, but it just isn’t right and the sooner the rest of the world see what is truly happening the better.

New York, London, Paris, Berlin - What Would YOU Do?

New York, London, Paris, Berlin – What Would YOU Do?

People across the West in particular have blamed Israel for attacking Hamas after the first rockets fell on Israeli territory, but if some militant group started firing rockets on one of YOUR towns or cities WHAT WOULD YOU DO? Think about it!

Hamas Rocket Firing On Israel

Hamas Rocket Firing On Israel

This sort of attack cannot be ignored by any society, yours, mine, or the Israeli’s. You have to strike back, and if the enemy is constantly firing the rockets from inside urban areas you have no choice but to launch an attack on the site to protect your own people.

Hamas Firing From Inside Civilian Area

Hamas Firing From Inside Civilian Area

Photographic evidence has been released of Hamas firing their rockets from inside the grounds of hospitals, schools and even from UN Facilities within Gaza. These selfsame places have been used as storage dumps for the rockets and yet its all the Israeli’s fault!

There is peace right now for one reason only, Hamas has run out of rockets but you can bet your last dollar that they are currently re-arming as fast as they can. As soon as they have enough, this war will start again, and please, don’t be so naive as to think it will not happen, for this scenario has been repeated over and over again for the last fifteen to twenty years.

These Two Have Become Billionaires

These Two Have Become Billionaires

As I have said in previous posts, Hamas uses donated funds for the rebuilding of Gaza to re-arm but also to make themselves rich beyond compare. Did you know that the top leaders of Hamas have become Billionaires during their time in power. Do you know that most of the other leaders are millionaires? This group started out with nothing when they were voted in by the people of Gaza in January 2006.

A Different Scenario

A Different Scenario

Their wealth, along with the arms purchased from Iran, has all come from the billions donated by various nations after each conflict with Israel that was intended for rebuilding Gaza city. It also comes from the very high taxes Hamas impose on anyone bringing in goods from the outside via the tunnels under the border with Egypt.

The Price Of A Tunnel

The Price Of A Tunnel

On top of this, aid money has been used to build all the tunnels (estimated at around $1m each) that are used by Hamas for military purposes. These tunnels were intended to provide access to Israeli territory for the mass killing of civilians in the surrounding villages and for taking hostages.

The terrorists even had a plan to blow up a kindergarten and a school in Israel, but only after they were full of children! But this of course was never widely reported because it was Hamas and not the Israeli’s.

The following photo shows the explosives being stacked in the tunnel under an Israeli school. Thankfully it was discovered by Israeli forces before it could be detonated.

The Hamas Human Shield

I find it most unfair that Israel is automatically blamed for the deaths in Gaza, when in reality you can lay all the blame at the feet of Hamas. They have to date successfully manipulated the world press and the U.N. with their propaganda.

Hamas Human Shield - Including Children

Hamas Human Shield – Including Children

In earlier conflicts with Israel who was it that filled the flat roofs of their ammunition dumps, vantage points and attack positions with civilians? Who was it that fired on Israeli troops from behind a wall of civilians? There is plenty of photographic evidence for these ‘Human Shields’ on the web if you care to look. But the sad thing is, it is easier for the world to blame Israel!

Hamas Pulling The Wool Over Your Eyes!

Hamas Pulling The Wool Over Your Eyes!

So my advice to all the people in the UNHCR, and those who love to demonstrate on the streets against Israel, look at the bare facts and forget the blatant propaganda issued by Hamas. In this way we may all find a solution to this terrible conflict and save the people of Gaza from more death and misery in the future.

Who Are the Billionaires of Gaza? – Hamas!

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Gaza and Hamas, Israel, News, Palestine, Terrorism, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 12/08/2014 by floroy1942

Up front I have to say that this piece was not written by me. Rather than paraphrase this interesting piece I have decided to reprint the whole article.  Upfront, I give my sincere thanks to the gentleman who wrote this piece,  Mark Ulyseas and to the Telegraph Book Shop in which it was published. I hope they will forgive me.

Gazans Living in Squalor

Gazans Living in Squalor

Hamas leaders have become millionaires and billionaires in Gaza. And how did they achieve this when there are photographs depicting Gazans living in squalor, lacking basic facilities?  

The western media has, in their haste to get the story and ratings, fallen prey to the propaganda of this murderous group of people who occupy Gaza and live off the taxes that have been unilaterally imposed on the wretched defenceless population. The charity collected by earnest folk on the streets  of UK and other  countries are ‘utilised’ by these leaders for purposes other than welfare. And with this blood money they have invested in various industries and services across the world. Next time you see a picture of a Gazan living in a filthy makeshift dwelling send an email to a Hamas leader and request him to share their millions with their own people.

One of  the most despicable forms of earning money is by crowd sourcing. The poor souls are fed the ‘Allah Ur  Akbar’ cry  and then herded together to form human shields. Many die, others are maimed…while the crowd sourcer gets paid in blood money by Hamas. Of course a percentage goes to the Hamas go between who gives out the contracts.

There is money to be made in occupation and murder, ask any Hamas leader. 

Gaza Appeal - All To Make The Hamas Leaders Rich!

Gaza Appeal – All To Make The Hamas Leaders Rich!

One of the big mysteries is how much the Hamas leaders, the Arab world’s new tycoons, are worth, and how they, born and raised in refugee camps, who raise aloft the cause of their people’s welfare, have become so wealthy and reclusive.

Dr. Moshe Elad, a lecturer in the Middle East Department of the Western Galilee Academic College, who served in senior positions in the territories for 30 years, is attempting to answer these questions.

“The vast majority of Hamas founders and leaders were refugees or second generation refugees, and some of them were the product of marriages between Egyptians and Palestinians. They had no money at all. When they and Hamas were just starting out, the organization (not in its own name) was nurtured by the Israeli military government, which fostered the Islamic associations working in the Gaza Strip as a counterweight to the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). Their phenomenal wealth started accumulating when they decided to disassociate themselves from Israel and search for alternative financing sources.”

Elad explains that the money came from two directions: “Legacies from the deceased; money from charity funds; a donation called zaka, one of the six pillars of Islam; and donations from various countries. It started with Syria and Saudi Arabia, with Iran added later and becoming one of Hamas’s biggest supporters, and ended with Qatar, which has now taken Iran’s place.”

Together with the donations from various countries, fundraisers began operating in the US to collect money for Hamas. Here, the Hamas leaders began to get their hands on some really big money. “One of those fundraisers was Dr. Musa Abu Marzook, the number 2 man in Hamas,” Elad says. “At the beginning of the 1990s, he began a fundraising campaign in the US among wealthy Muslims, while at the same time founding several banking enterprises. He himself became a conglomerate of 10 financial enterprises giving loans and making financial investments. He’s an amazing financier.”

The US administration ordered Marzook’s arrest in 1995 on charges of supporting terrorism. After he spent two years in a US prison, it was decided to expel him without trial. He kept the money. “When he was expelled from the US in 1997, he was already worth several million dollars,” Elad says, adding, “Somehow he evaded the clutches of the US Internal Revenue Service and was not charged with financing terrorism. People in the know say he probably became connected to the administration and cooperated with it. There is no proof, but it’s hard to think of any other reason why he escaped punishment for such serious offenses. In 2001, in the investigation of the September 11 events, it turned out that he had extensive financial connections with Al Qaeda, including the transfer of funds to the 21 Al Qaeda operatives accused of the attacks.”

Today, Marzook is considered one of Hamas’s wealthiest billionaires. “Arab sources estimate his wealth at $2-3 billion,” Elad says.

Another Hamas leader-turned-tycoon is Khaled Mashaal. “Estimates around the world are that Mashaal is currently worth $2.6 billion, but the numbers mentioned by the Arab commentators (based on their many sources) are much higher, varying from $2-5 billion invested in Egyptian and Persian Gulf banks, and some in real estate projects in the Persian Gulf countries,” Elad adds.

The next tycoon on the list is Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. “He is a scion of a family from the Al-Shati refugee camp, and his capital is estimated at $4 million,” Elad says, adding, “He registered most of his assets in the Gaza Strip in the name of his son-in-law, Nabil, and in the name of a dozen of his sons and daughters and a few less well known Hamas leaders. They all have homes in good neighborhoods in the Gaza Strip, where the value of every home is at least $1 million.”

Another wealthy Hamas official – Iman Taha – is not on the organization’s highest levels, but he, too, (and other junior managers) is feeding from the trough. According to Elad, “He was a poor rebellious kid from the al-Borg refugee camp, but he recently built a home in central Gaza worth at least $1 million. He’s responsible for coordination between oversea Hamas and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, and he’s not even a leading figure, but he’s already among the millionaires.”

The question of where these officials got their money exposes the corrupt system used by Hamas through its control of the money pipelines in the Gaza Strip. They treated the money as their own personal possession. “Most of the money that went into the pockets of people in the Gaza Strip was obtained through tunnel deals and the creation of a flourishing smuggling market, which it is believed has created several hundred millionaires in the Gaza Strip, although most of the people there don’t live like that. The man pulling the strings from Egypt with the tunnels is none other than the number two man in the Muslim Brotherhood, Khairat el-Shater. His connection with Hamas was ostensibly for Islamic religious purposes, but they actually built a prosperous business, which earned phenomenal profits,” Elad says.

The Asharq Al-Awsat (Middle East) newspaper, one of the most prestigious in the Arab world, recently reported that at least 600 millionaires were living in the Gaza Strip – the same people sitting on the money pipelines there.

Elad describes how the system worked and to how much money (huge amounts) Hamas leaders were exposed: “Senior Hamas leaders charged a 25% ‘tax’ and $2,000 on every disassembled vehicle coming through the tunnels. There are hundreds of smuggling tunnels from Egypt to Gaza, and these are the types of tunnel Israel has been less busy in destroying, because Egypt has destroyed many of them. From June 2007 until 2010, $800 million in cash was transferred in tunnel deals (according to information from Hamas money traders). Hamas also taxes Gaza merchants on everything traded, from boxes of vegetables to luxury cars, and the leaders scoop the money into their pockets.”

Another source of wealth for Hamas leaders was taking over land. “They took over land mainly near the sea in good areas, such as the former Gush Katif, then sold it. In effect, they are the cat guarding the cream – the land – so they were able to take over land and loot it for themselves,” Elad explains.

In addition, there is a system in the Gaza Strip of fictitious recruitment of workers for Hamas for the purpose of obtaining pay slips from people overseas paying for it. “They get the payments from overseas according to the workers’ names. It has recently been discovered that there are hundreds of fictitious names of soldiers and officials supposedly in Hamas. Actually, the leaders and officials put the money in their own pockets,” Elad asserts.

The Caption Says It All

The Caption Says It All About Hamas Intentions To Attack Israel!

According to various sources, some of Mashaal’s money came from the “Syrian fund.” Elad explains: “According to these accusations, following an investigation by the US federal authorities, Mashaal was accused of embezzling the entire Syrian fund. There was a separate fund in Syria for Hamas; Mashaal controlled all the movements in the fund when he lived there. As soon as he left Damascus, he took the Syrian fund, which was worth several billion dollars, and distributed it to himself and others. It is believed that Hamas had $1.5-2.5 billion in assets in Syria, which Mashaal took.”

In summary, Elad says, “This is corruption at the highest level… What has united the Palestinian leaders all throughout the years is the saying, ‘We have to get rich quick.’ This is how the regime sees it. Their leaders have no shame. Shortly after they got power, they took control of fuel, communications, and any other profitable sectors in the country. There are get-rich-quick schemes and corruption in Western society, too, but there it’s done sophisticatedly with envelopes of money and complex structures of bribery and the like. Among the Palestinians, they tell you straight out, ‘I want to get rich.’”

So you see that everything in Gaza is not as depicted in the headline grabbing press releases and the TV news! Most of what is written and shown to us on our TV screens is a long way from the truth. It is time for the greater public to see past the lies that are spread by Hamas and look at the truth for a change.

Before you decide to attend a Pro-Palestinian Demonstration look at the real facts, and realize you are playing directly into the hands of Hamas.

Another Abu Ghraib Debacle

Posted in Afghanistan, Al Quada, America, Arab, Britain, Insurgents, Muslim, Sharia Law, Taliban, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 23/07/2013 by floroy1942

It comes as no big surprise to me that al Quada has launched an attack on Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad Iraq to free 500 of their compatriots awaiting execution. This terrorist group has once again been quietly growing in strength since the death of bin Laden, and with so many of their commanders and top echelon fighters  locked up in cells in this infamous place, it seemed to me inevitable that at some time or another they would make an attempt to free them. This they have achieved with overwhelming success.

Abu Ghraib Prison - Bahgdad

Abu Ghraib Prison – Baghdad

The latest news from Iraq government sources indicate that many of the prison guards were involved in helping the prisoners to escape, and to be honest, that doesn’t surprise me either. In a country suffering great turmoil like Iraq, it is very difficult to know who to trust. Whether the government likes it or not, groups like al Quada have many sympathisers among its population.

So now, not only Iraq, but also Afghanistan, Pakistan and many other nations can look forward to more attacks by terrorists, and who knows, maybe the western world also. We should not make the mistake of thinking this jailbreak has little significance, for it can have a huge impact on future al Quada operations. Many of those awaiting execution were senior commanders in the group and will want revenge, and probably do their utmost to get it.

We are now at a period in history where inter-tribal violence in the Arab world is getting greater day by day. We in the West can only be grateful, for the moment at least, that they are fighting each other and not committing atrocities in our countries. Rightly or wrongly, I believe most of this unrest has been instigated by groups like al Quada, who have clearly changed their tactics from the direct confrontation of the last decade, to the more clandestine approach of fermenting unrest, and  thereby undermining governments.

Terrorist groups, and in particular al Quada, are behind much of the trouble in the Arab world. In this I include Egypt, Libya, and of course Syria. They have for a long time indicated they want Arab countries to be totally Muslim in word and deed, and accept Sharia Law. Egypt is a prime example. It has always been a secular country with a mixture of religions living side by side without one being in a dominant position. Turkey is another prime example where unrest has stirred, initially over the loss of parkland, but later spreading to demand the downfall of the government. In Syria, Assad’s main problem was he didn’t see al Quada operatives coming until it was too late.

In other countries like Pakistan, India, Sudan, Mali and some far eastern nations, we have seen the escalation in attacks on Christian communities in the hope of driving them out by inciting inter-religious conflict.

Muslim 'Rent-a-Mob'

Muslim ‘Rent-a-Mob’

You can be forgiven for wondering how I came to these conclusions, but if you think about it, the easiest place to ‘rent-a-mob’ is in an Arab country. It takes but a few whispers in a few ears from insurgent group operatives like al Quada for the word to spread, and before long you have a full-blown riot on your hands complete with all the trimmings. When the demonstrations began in places like Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Syria for example, I am pretty sure that as the first people joined the core mob they had no idea what it was all about. There is something hypnotic about a baying crowd to Arabs, and they want to join in the excitement. After that it takes little to persuade them they are demonstrating for a worthy cause. Especially if you tell them “It is the will of Allah”!

Britain's Violent Youth

Britain’s Violent Youth

It is pretty much the same with the groups of youth in places like Britain, and other countries, who travel from one demonstration to another to ‘have a go at the Police’, smash things, or do some looting. What starts off as a peaceful demonstration is quickly taken over by the small core of violent youth who want to have a go at ‘The System’, but for them its only because they love violence.

There can be little doubt that if you want to take over a country, the best way to do it is from the inside. This tactic has led to the fall of many Arab governments over the past decade and will continue until the insurgents get what they want, i.e., control of a country. The Taliban tried it in Afghanistan and were thrown back by international intervention, but once the foreign troops leave they will be back.

al Quada Will Be On the March Again Soon

al Quada Will Be On the March Again Soon

Such a massive jailbreak could have been avoided if the condemned prisoners had not spent months, and possibly years awaiting execution. In my opinion, if a person is a convicted terrorist and condemned to death, the sentence should be carried out within days. Had that happened there would have been next to nobody for al Quada to free.

Solves All Problems

If a person has had a fair trial and the evidence is overwhelming, why keep them on death row for months or years. The same goes for convicted killers in any country. Some in the States have been on death row for ten years or more. Why?

It will remain quiet for a little while now while the escapees get back to their camps and catch up on what has been happening, but I predict that soon, we will see a new wave of violence.
