  ISLAMIC ANTI TERRORISM EFFORT COALITION WILLING OR ANTI-IRAN FRONT
Posted by: globalvision2000administrator - 05-13-2018, 01:52 PM - Forum: Alternative therories - No Replies

SAUDI ARABIA's ISLAMIC ANTI TERRORISM EFFORT :
A COALITION OF THE WILLING OR AN  ANTI-IRAN FRONT?
https://rusi.org/commentary/saudi-arabia...iran-front

 Gulf RegionTerrorismMiddle East and North Africa
Saudi Arabia’s new Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition has been hailed as an historic organisation which will not only serve a military purpose but also take the ideological fight against those who use terror in the name of Islam.

The launch of Saudi Arabia’s new Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) went practically unnoticed in the West as much of the focus was on the current turmoil in the Middle East.  However, for the countries involved – and particularly the three dominant players of Saudi ArabiaEgypt and Pakistan — the initiative is considered a significant event that could alter the course of the region.

The IMCTC is Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s (MbS) brainchild. The first hint of its formation came in March 2016 with the region’s largest ever military exercise, Northern Thunder. Hosted by Saudi Arabia, more than 300,000 soldiers took part and over 2,000 fighter aircraft took part in Northern Thunder.

In early 2017, the idea of an Islamic NATO was floated by Riyadh, based on the unity of the Muslim ‘ummah’ – a fraternity of Islamic communities ­– which would ensure that their destiny lay their own hands rather than relying on the West.

The IMCTC is Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s brainchild

The timing made sense. MbS was emerging as a key player while Saudi Arabia felt increasingly alienated by Barack Obama’s White House over his administration’s support for the Iran nuclear deal at a time when Riyadh was balking at Tehran’s growing regional influence. Riyadh welcomed the election of Donald Trump, with Saudi Arabia being the new US president’s first destination on a foreign visit. Furthermore, Trump’s message — that regional countries should take control of their own destiny rather than relying on the US — was already being put into effect by the IMCTC. Trump in his early days reached out to President Abdel Fatah El-Sisi of Egypt and held him out to be a core part of the new strategy that would allow Muslim countries to fight terror themselves.

However, questions remain: What is the IMCTC’s role? Will it have operational teeth, or will it be a political tool wielded by the Saudis against the Iranians?  And while the IMCTC pushes the ‘ummah’ unity narrative, some major Muslim nations are missing from the coalition, such as Iran, Iraq and Syria, causing fears that it is merely an anti-Shia ‘Sunni bloc’. These fears were exacerbated by Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s resignation announcement in Riyadh – later retracted – over the power of Iran’s proxy Hezbollah. Moreover, the world’s most populous Islamic state, Indonesia, has so far declined to join, along with Algeria, which has the largest Muslim military in Africa.

However, the new commander of the coalition, General Raheel Sharif — who retired in 2016 after serving as the powerful army chief of Pakistan, the coalition’s largest and only nuclear-armed force – clearly rejects this anti-Iran narrative.   

‘This coalition is against terrorism. It is not against any country, sect or religion’, he said in Riyadh. As he laid out the main objectives of the coalition —  fighting terrorism tactically as a military force, targeting terror financing and countering the psychological warfare by the radicals – Sharif was clear about the IMCTC’s mission,  We all have different strengths. For example, the Jordanians are great in urban counterterrorism. The Pakistanis are well versed at operating in rural, less developed areas. Thus, resourcing will be key. Using the resources of militaries which have enough – such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE – to help out nations with less, such as those in Africa, will optimise the coalition. Of course, intelligence sharing will be the key building block of our operational capacity, and will also translate into greater gains, like ending the war in Afghanistan.


However, despite the reassurances, with Qatar being denied trade access routes by the Saudis, Egyptians and Emiratis, and as Yemen descends even further in a cycle of violence, the region can ill-afford another major division.


With the IMCTC, the Saudis, with the backing of Egypt, Pakistan and others, have taken the first step towards fulfilling Trump’s request that they rely more on themselves than on the West

Pakistan is playing a key role in soothing frayed nerves. While the anti-terrorism coalition was being launched, Pakistani army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited Tehran to allay its fears over the coalition.  Photographs of Bajwa saluting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and signing long-term security arrangements with the Iranian military were greeted in Tehran.

And here, perhaps, lies an indication of what this Saudi-inspired military formation is all about. Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has said that,  Saudi Arabia feels safe, or at least it should, when its wings are all right. ‘Saudi security’ is based on an old strategy that withstood the change of times, leaders and the world around it; a strategy that always needs a strong Pakistan in the east, and a powerful and stable Egypt in the west, while maintaining good and distinctive relations with both countries so that it could safely advance with its foreign relations.

With the IMCTC, the Saudis, with the backing of Egypt, Pakistan and others, have taken the first step towards fulfilling Trump’s request that they rely more on themselves than on the West.

Among the IMCTC’s first steps, Nigeria and Somalia will be offered capacity-building support, training and even troops in a quest to stabilise the wider Middle East. Sharif is also busy drawing up plans for divisions, brigades and troops strength, even as joint training exercises get more streamlined.

Meanwhile, with the full support of MbS – Sharif praised him as ‘one of fertile mind, and energy’ – the region could soon see a ‘Muslim-centric’ approach to ending conflicts and countering radicalism.  The IMCTC has stated its goal to ‘take Islam back’ from non-state, radical actors by beating them at their own game. The presence of senior Islamic clergy at the IMCTC launch reinforces this intention.  However, whether this coalition will stabilise the Middle East or just exacerbate existing schisms remains to be seen.

  SKRIPAL INCIDENT
Posted by: globalvision2000administrator - 04-04-2018, 02:17 PM - Forum: Alternative therories - No Replies

US-DOMINATED NATO NEEDS ENEMIES TO JUSTIFY ITS EXISTENCE 

The North Atlantic Alliance functions as an arm of US imperial policy – intended for offense, not defense, especially after Soviet Russia dissolved. 

World peace and stability are unattainable as long as this killing machine exists, waging endless wars of aggression, raping and destroying one country after another, responsible for countless millions of casualties and vast destruction.  Washington controls NATO, defraying 75% of its budget, calling the shots, subservient alliance officials installed to serve its agenda.
At a time when no alliance enemies exist, they’re invented to justify NATO’s existence, including ISIS and other terrorist groups Washington created and supports, along with all nations on America’s target list for regime change – notably Russia, considered public enemy number one despite threatening no one.

According to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko,

“(t)he Skripal affair (is being) used…to tighten the ranks of the European Union and NATO” – at a time of “weakening US hegemony in the Middle East (given) conditions which could lead to a breakup of the” alliance,

Michel Chossudovsky explained, adding:

“Divisions within the Atlantic Alliance could take the form of one or more member states deciding to ‘Exit NATO,’ “ weakening the alliance,” especially its ability to pursue replacing all sovereign independent governments with pro-Western puppet rule.

On July 11 and 12, a NATO summit will be held, Washington pressuring the other 28 members to increase their military spending. Was the Skripal incident planned to escalate East/West tensions, aiming to pressure NATO members to punish Russia politically and economically, along with increasing their military spending despite no credible threat justifying it?
Indeed so, it appears. According to Grushko,

“all this was planned, including due to the fact that it would be necessary to explain to the public in the near future where the money is going because it is colossal spending.”  The Skripal provocation is being used to justify what’s unjustifiable – manufacturing a Russian threat out of thin air when clearly none exists.
In an atmosphere of Russophobic hysteria, normal relations are fractured, conditions likely to worsen ahead, not improve. Expect further shoes to drop. Serious consequences are risked if Washington and Britain fail to step back from the brink.

No sign of it so far, a cause for great concern. Nuclear war could erupt despite no one wanting it.
The unthinkable is possible, what should terrify everyone.

TRANSITION EVOLUTION AND INNER TRANSFORMATION

Change is happening everywhere and what's more it seems to be accelerated. What used to be considered as alternative and fringe has now been absorbed into the mainstream. Look back and see how much is now generally accepted that would not have been just a few years ago. There is more discussion over the implications of global warming and greater concern over the knock-on effect of our political policies. Gradually, we are starting to think more like a planet. As more of us choose to take action in our own lives to make a difference, so the tools have become available for us to share what we do with others. Worldwide alliances are now forming to give support to those who share the common purpose of creating a positive future. 

Each action we take is diverse and unique but it contributes to a greater whole. Individually we can do a huge amount but together we can make a real difference. The story of the butterfly is our story too. The caterpillar has no choice about becoming a butterfly, as long as it escapes the usual pitfalls.  It has to emerge from the primordial soup. Perhaps it's time that we should too.

ALLIANCE FOR A NEW HUMANITY

We are people from all regions of the world and from all walks of life, united by a common vision, which is to strengthen and sustain an actively compassionate humanity.  We are open to any one who pursues this goal and we call upon those who are tired of passively waiting for change. We live in the in critically insecure or times. Perceived and real instability is growing in many sectors of life - but there is also hope.  The choice depends on how humanity deals with four trends, each enmeshed and interconnected with the others: war, poverty, environmental degradation and human rights abuses.  Each threat is increasing the severity of the others. These problems are all related - so are the solutions.

The aim is to create an alliance of people based on the awareness of humanity’s interconnectedness.  We believe that if enough people share the value of peace, then war can be brought to an end. If enough people shift their awareness towards social justice, human rights and environmental sustainability, then injustice, oppression and the destruction of the eco-system can be stopped. Such a shift is already occurring - now it needs critical mass which, in turn, needs organisation.  The alliance aims to connect individuals, caring communities and groups at a global level. Unity is not sought for and won. It is realised one person at a time. We envision a future illuminated by the truth of unity - a future where any boundary can be removed because it has already been brought down in our hearts. This vision is a cause for celebration. Soon it could guide us in a great evolutionary leap and provide the basis for sustainable solutions to humanity's greatest threats.

“We are on the brink of a great revolution – a quantum leap into the embodiment of the divine. Let us make this revolution together and all leap calmly into the only possible future,” says Andrew Harvey, author and speaker for the Alliance for a New Humanity Forum, in Puerto Rico on 7-9th December 2006


EVOLUTION AND INNER TRANSFORMATION

FROM CHRYSALIS TO BUTTERFLY


In the laws of science and quantum physics, everything that exists in the universe is energy and, intimately vibrating and interacting. In this world there is no separation, and so when Deepak Chopra talks about the natural world as an extension of all living beings, such statements as “the trees are an extension of our lungs” make perfect sense. If we all recognise this reality in our hearts, how could we destroy rainforests without feeling it is our lungs that we are affecting? Quantum theory supports the idea that when we act without reverence in the outer world, the inner self is affected - and conversely, positive transformation of our inner selves will have major positive benefits in the outer world. 

In his book, The Book of Secrets, Deepak captures the essence of this in the transformation of the chrysalis to the butterfly. Under the microscope one can see the cells of the chrysalis as a mass of grey cells which he calls a grey quantum soup. Suddenly, as the chrysalis transforms itself, tiny specks of bright new cells appear like islands swimming in the great mass of un-diffused cells. These islands grow and multiply, feeding off the grey quantum soup, until the bright new cells reach a critical mass. The transformation is instant and the grey mass of cells become the butterfly. From greyness to light in one magical and irreversible quantum leap.

This is a transformation that we and the world around us are making every moment; waiting for the time we reach the critical mass of transformation. This whole story becomes more profound when you consider science has shown that DNA found in the butterfly is the same as that found in the cells of the human heart. In this story maybe the natural world is whispering to us that the essence of the true transformation of the world will stem from the time when the human heart yearn to fly.


Kevin Leivers

Deepak Chopra has committed to reach the first million people so that we can take that evolutionary leap. Let us harness our resources and be part of that first million to reach a critical mass - and we too then can we write the story for a new humanity. Let Creativity and Caring be our mantra.
