Pepe Escobar :: The self-beheading House of Saud

Pepe Escobar :: The self-beheading House of Saud | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Don't count on a female Saudi playwright writing a 21st century remix of John Osborne's Look Back in Anger starring a bunch of non-working class Saudi royals. But anger it is - from King Abdullah downwards; not only at the UN's "double standards" but especially - hush hush - at the infidel Obama administration. 

This is the official Saudi explanation for spurning a much-coveted two-year term at the UN Security Council, only hours after its nomination. 

No wonder the House of Saud's unprecedented self-beheading move was praised only by the usual minion suspects; petro-monarchies of the Gulf Counter-revolution Club, aka Gulf



Cooperation Council (GCC) as well as Egypt, who now depends on Saudi money to pay its bills and barely survive. 

Kuwait shared Riyadh's pain, enough to send "a message to the world". The UAE said the UN now had the "historical responsibility" to review its role. Bahrain - invaded by the Saudis in 2001 - stressed the "clear and courageous stand". Cairo said the whole thing was "brave". 

How brave, indeed, to lobby Arab and Pacific nations for two years, and to spend a fortune training a dozen diplomats in New York for months just to say "no" when you get the prize. The House of Saud would have replaced Pakistan with a Pacific seat; Morocco stays until 2015, in an African seat. As early as five months ago the Saudi seat was considered a done deal at the UN.

LUXO »» Tradução de Pepe Escobar para Português »»»  “Nossos” bastardos Wahhabi armados #Brasil #Portugal #Angola | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
A vida é boa se você é membro do Clube Contrarrevolucionário do Golfo, oficialmente conhecido como Conselho de Cooperação do Golfo (CCG). Você pode esmagar a Primavera Árabe à vontade. Você pode contratar mercenários por todo Dar-al-Islã para propagar uma divisão sectária sunita-xiita. Você pode se envolver profundamente na destruição da Síria. Você pode tratar uma parte significante de sua própria população como cidadãos de terceira-classe. Você não apenas se safa dessa; você é premiado com brinquedos caros. E em um caso particular - Arábia Saudita – até mesmo com um assento de dois anos no Conselho de Segurança da ONU. Sem falar que a Casa de Saud espertamente se safa ao manipular o Islã como pilar de sua “legitimidade”. A Casa de Saud controla o Hajj – que ocorreu esta semana; uma enorme operação logística que “legitima” seu papel como líder do Islã sunita e, automaticamente, de todo o mundo islâmico. Apesar disso, muçulmanos bem-informados são muito conscientes da falácia – assim como são conscientes de como a Casa de Saud está rapidamente transformando Meca numresort de luxo pay-per-prayer estilo Las Vegas. Quem ganha? Certamente não os peregrinos.

The Great Nothingness of Libya, Two Years After Muammar Gaddafi By Maximilian Forte

The Great Nothingness of Libya, Two Years After Muammar Gaddafi By Maximilian Forte | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

The notion of a “Libya” has ceased to have any meaningful practical application. As a concept that either refers to some degree of national unity, an imagined community, sovereignty, or the exercise of authority by a state over the territory within its borders, “Libya” has been driven back to the time when it had yet to become formalized as a concept.

Those once celebrated as “rebels” and “revolutionaries” — by Obama, NATO states, UN bodies, Western media, and a range of liberal imperialist opinion along with those “socialists” who, after an extended period of internalized structural adjustment now model their thinking to better accord with neoliberal principles — are rarely if ever held up now as paragons of the “better future” that was to come. Visions, as in hallucinations and delusions, of the better that would come once Gaddafi was dutifully executed, abounded in the politically prepubescent writings of an “Arab Spring.”

If there ever was an “Arab Spring” in Libya, within days it quickly turned into an African nightmare. This was especially true with respect to the racist terrorism launched against scores of unarmed black Libyan civilians and African migrant workers. To the extent that “Libya” exists any longer, it is either as an absence or as a shameful stain. Libya is now Africa’s newest apartheid “state” and torture “regime”. Why the quotes? Unlike apartheid South Africa, the “new Libya” lacks any kind of cohesion as either a state or among actual or prospective rulers as a class, and in fact class analysis when applied to Libya by using Marx as a how-to-manual, produces laughable results to be expected from orthodox Eurocentrics, from those who cast the present in non-western settings as a mere projection or repetition of “Stalinism”.
