Christian, Jewish & Muslim Contributions to the USA
I have avoided the contributions of other religious groups because I want to explore those of the so-called Abrahamic Religions in particular since they have had the most enduring and easily verifiable legacies.
Beginning with the 1492 arrival of Christopher Columbus in the Caribbean and gaining control over more territory for over three centuries, the Spanish Empire would expand across the Caribbean Islands, half of South America, most of Central America and much of North America.
The systematic invasion and occupation of the Americas started with the Spanish colonization which began under the Crown of Castile and was spearheaded by the Spanish conquistadors; and incorporated into the Spanish Empire. The main motivations for colonial expansion were profit through resource extraction and the spread of Catholicism by forced indigenous conversions.
It is estimated that during the colonial period (1492–1832), a total of 1.86 million Spaniards settled in the Americas, and a further 3.5 million immigrated during the post-colonial era (1850–1950).
By contrast, the indigenous population plummeted by an estimated 80% in the first century and a half following Columbus’s voyages, primarily through the spread of disease, forced labour and slavery for resource extraction, and missionization. This has been argued to be the first large-scale act of genocide in the modern era..
In the early 19th century, the Spanish American wars of independence resulted in the secession and subsequent division of most Spanish territories in the Americas, except for Cuba and Puerto Rico, which were lost to the United States in 1898, following the Spanish–American War. The loss of these territories ended Spanish rule in the Americas.
While the Spaniards plundered and decimated the native populations of the territories they conquered, the next wave of foreigners arriving to the shores of the USA were immigrants who were escaping religious persecution in Europe and looking for a free life in America.
The Mayflower was an English ship that transported a group of English families, known today as the Pilgrims, from England to the New World in 1620. After a grueling 10 weeks at sea, Mayflower, with 102 passengers and a crew of about 30, reached America, dropping anchor near the tip of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, on November 21, 1620.
Differing from their contemporaries, the Puritans (who sought to reform and purify the Church of England), the Pilgrims chose to separate themselves from the Church of England because they believed it was beyond redemption due to its Roman Catholic past and the church’s resistance to reform, which forced them to pray in private.
Starting 1608, a group of English families left England for the Netherlands, where they could worship freely. By 1620, the community was determined to cross the Atlantic for America, which they considered a “new Promised Land”.
The Pilgrims had originally hoped to reach America by early October using two ships, but delays and complications meant they could use only one, Mayflower. Arriving in November, they had to survive unprepared through a harsh winter. As a result, only half of the original Pilgrims survived the first winter at Plymouth.
Without the help of local Indigenous peoples to teach them food gathering and other survival skills, all of the colonists might have perished. The following year, those 53 who survived, celebrated the colony’s first fall harvest along with 90 Wampanoag Native American people, an occasion declared centuries later the first American Thanksgiving.
Three days after the expulsion of the Jews of Spain in 1492, Christopher Columbus set sail for India. His fleet of three ships instead landed on the shores of North America in what is now Cuba. Of the ninety sailors, historians have identified five as Converso/or Crypto Jews (Jews forced by the Spanish Inquisition to Convert to Catholicism yet practiced many Jewish rituals in secret). Speculation has it that they sailed in hope of finding a community more hospitable than Spain. There were no Muslims.
One crew member, Luis de Torres (a Converso), was a man who knew Hebrew, Arabic, and Spanish. He was the ship’s interpreter and was the first crew member to set foot on North American soil. Columbus’ journey was not a direct route to America for the Jewish population that had fled from Spain. For the next 162 years the Jews searched for an accepting community. Although a small handful of Jews did sail to North America many more fled to Portugal for safety.
The first group of openly Jewish settlers arrived in New Amsterdam (New York) in 1654. The Ste. Catherine brought a group of six families totalling twenty-three people, including thirteen children and two widows. These twenty-three Jews began what is now the largest, most prosperous, and most successful Jewish communities in the history of the Diaspora.
In the pantheon of American Jewish heroes, Haym Salomon (1740-1785) has attained legendary status. His life was brief and tumultuous, but his impact on the American imagination was great. The U.S. Postal Service issued a stamp hailing Salomon as a “Financial Hero of the American Revolution.” A monument to Salomon, George Washington, and Robert Morris graces East Wacker Drive in Chicago, and Beverly Hills, California, is home to an organization called the American Jewish Patriots and Friends of Haym Salomon.
However, Salomon’s life was not all triumph. A successful financier in the early 1780s, he died in 1785 leaving a wife and four young children with debts larger than his estate. When his son petitioned Congress to recover money he claimed his father was owed by the government, various committees refused to recognize the family’s claims. In 1936, Congress did vote to erect a monument to Salomon in the District of Columbia, but funds for the actual construction were never appropriated.
Born in Lissa, Poland, in 1740, Salomon spent several years moving around Western Europe and England, developing fluency in several languages that served him well for the remainder of his life. Reaching New York City in 1772, he swiftly established himself as a successful merchant and dealer in foreign securities. Striking up an acquaintance with Alexander MacDougall, leader of the New York Sons of Liberty, Salomon became active in the patriot cause.
When war broke out in 1776, Salomon got a contract to supply American troops in central New York. In 1777, he married Rachel Franks, whose brother Isaac was a lieutenant colonel on George Washington’s staff. Their ketubbah (marriage contract) resides at the American Jewish Historical Society.
In the wake of a fire that destroyed much of New York City, British occupation forces arrested and imprisoned Salomon. He gained release because the British hoped to use his language skills to communicate with their German mercenaries. Instead, Salomon covertly encouraged the Hessians to desert. Arrested again in early 1778 for espionage and sabotage, Salomon had his property confiscated. A drum-head court martial sentenced him to hang. Salomon escaped — probably with the help of other Sons of Liberty — and fled penniless to Philadelphia. His wife and child joined him soon afterward.
In Philadelphia, Salomon resumed his brokerage business. The French minister appointed him paymaster general of the French forces fighting for the American cause. The Dutch and Spanish governments also engaged him to sell the securities that supported their loans to the Continental Congress.
In 1781, Congress established the Office of Finance to save the United States from fiscal ruin. Salomon allied himself with Superintendent of Finance William Morris, and became one of the most effective brokers of bills of exchange to meet federal government expenses. Salomon also personally advanced funds to members of the Continental Congress and other federal officers, charging interest and commissions well below the market rates. James Madison confessed that “I have for some time … been a pensioner on the favour of Haym Salomon, a Jew broker.”
Salomon helped lead the successful fight to repeal the test oath that barred Jews and other non-Christians from holding public office in Pennsylvania.
Within five years of his arrival in Philadelphia, Salomon advanced from penniless fugitive to respected businessman, philanthropist and defender of his people. He risked his fortune, pledged his good name and credit on behalf of the Revolution, and stood up for religious liberty. Despite financial setbacks at the end of his life, Salomon’s name is forever linked to the idealism and success of the American Revolution, and to the contributions Jews have made to the cause of American freedom.
This part of the article specifically addresses Muslims in the USA to counter the enormous misrepresentations and mendacious articles put forth by Muslims and their apologists
“The Founders of this nation explicitly included Islam in their vision of the future of the republic. Freedom of religion, as they conceived it, encompassed it,” explains James H. Hutson, the chief of the Manuscript Division of the US Library of Congress.
Thomas Jefferson, who famously owned a copy of the Quran, had much to say about Islam’s place in America. According to Hutson, Jefferson, while campaigning for religious freedom in Virginia, demanded “recognition of the religious rights of the ‘Mahamdan,’ the Jew and the ‘pagan.'”
Article VI states that “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
Jefferson’s copy of the Quran was not because he was admiring its contents but because he needed to comprehend the mind-set of the Muslim Pirate leaders of North Africa who were plundering, and enslaving American ships in the Mediterranean.
What Huston deliberately ignores are the following:
- a)The first people to declare war on the new Republic were the Barbary Coast Muslims of North Africa under the very Ottoman Empire which negotiated a ‘peace treaty’ with the USA.
- b)They held Americans hostage for many decades forcing them to pay exorbitant bribery and even then, like true Muslims, they broke their word.
- c)It was Jefferson in the end who went to war against the Muslims to stop their piratical activities once and for all.
- d)How many Americans know that perhaps 1.5 million Christian Europeans and Americans were enslaved in Islamic North Africa between 1530 and 1780?
- e)We are constantly regaled with the alleged “Covenant of Muhammad” with the subjugated Christians under Islam, but remarkably, no one addresses the most enduring and actively implemented “Charter of Omar” which abrogates every article of Muhammad’s ‘Covenant’.
In the early years of America’s founding, the vast majority of Muslims weren’t citizens but slaves. What escapes the limited intellect of most historians is the anomaly of African converts to Islam were selling African Muslims into Christian slavery.
Historian Kambiz GhaneaBassiri, whose book A History of Islam in America is one of the most comprehensive on the subject, states, “Muslims in colonial and antebellum America came from a variety of ethnic, educational, and economic backgrounds. In America, their experiences varied depending on when, where, and how they were transported to these shores. There was no singular interpretation nor practice of Islam. In some instances, Islamic beliefs and practices were means of self-identification that distinguished, and at times even isolated, African Muslims from other enslaved Africans or white Americans.”
Conversion to Christianity was arguably the most widespread method by which African Muslims reconfigured their religious practices and beliefs to adapt to their new context and to form new communal relations. Thus, despite the massive influx of Muslims from the Atlantic slave trade, by the end of the 19th century Islam had all but disappeared among these communities.
At the same time that Islam was fading among communities of slaves and former slaves, millions of immigrants began arriving on America’s shores toward the end of the 19th and especially the early 20th centuries. They included tens of thousands from Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East, South and Central Asia, and Eastern Europe. They were spurred in part by the Industrial Revolution that erupted once America finally emerged from the ashes of the Civil War and Reconstruction era.
The early 20th century saw Muslim immigrant communities in America beginning to establish small, local community organizations across the country.
At the same time, African Americans also “began to embrace Islam in the 1920s and 30s partially in response to the radical dislocations and racism they experienced prior to and during the Great Migration (the movement of disenfranchised southerners to industrial regions in the North).”
It is remarkable how totally Quran and Islam African Slavery’s ignorant Black Americans started embracing the Cult belief system of Muhammad, the very same that systematized and institutionalized on an industrial scale, the genocide of about 140,000,000 pagan Africans so that the surviving 14,000,000 were sold to the White slavers anchored in the ports of West Africa. Whites did not go into darkest Africa to enslave Africans. This they left to the Muslim racist Arabs and their black converts to Islam.
Several of these African-American Muslim associations would go on to have significant impact on the face of Islam in America by promoting the idea of Islam as a lost part of black African heritage.
But as the 20th century progressed, Muslim immigrants who had already arrived on America’s shores, as well as the African Americans who had connected with the religion (or, in perhaps some cases, reconnected with long-lost Muslim roots), began playing a much more active role in American politics and society.
Within African American Muslim communities, the chasm between the realities of discrimination and the democratic ideals through which America self-identified after World War II was a powerful example not only of hypocrisy but also of the fact that nearly a century after the Civil War, black Americans still remained outside America’s national narrative. In this context, black nationalist Muslim movements’ critique of Christianity as a “white man’s religion” and their appropriation of Islam as the national religion of African America proved very appealing.
It attracted numerous converts and ensconced Islam in black America as a religion of liberation. During the Civil Rights Movement, it Islamized a significant segment of African Americans.
Interesting how Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam and almost every Black and Muslim American leader, never address this subject but condemn Christians and Jews – who were instrumental in ending the Islamic slave trade – of slavery.
By the way, most Muslim scholars do not view adherents of the Nation of Islam and similar movements to actually be Muslims, as many of their beliefs are contrary or even downright blasphemous to many of the core tenets of Islam.
Projection was used by the Islamic mentor Muhammad 1400 years ago and will continue to be used by his followers for as long as Islam exists.
After their arrival in 1960’s, the treatment of Muslim Americans was shaped largely by a series of geopolitical encounters between the United States and various Muslim nations. In 1967 the Six Day War, a significant event in the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict, brought truthful and therefore negative portrayals of Arabs into the American media showing how millions of Arabs and their leaders were publicly screaming their blood curdling intention to exterminate the Jews of Israel. Not a single Arab or Muslim ever thought they were going to fail so catastrophically.
Things would only get worse as the years moved forward. At the end of the decade, the Iranian Revolution and the US hostage crisis would captivate the world and provide yet another instance of the true “violent” faces of Muhammad and Islam, as well as Islam’s clash with the West for the last 1400 years.
Nonstop media coverage of the crisis brought the plight of the hostages and the revolutionary religious fervour of their Muslim captors into the homes of millions of Americans.
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, were a watershed moment in the history of Islam in America. The largest attack on American soil since the bombing of Pearl Harbour in 1941 had been carried out by Muslim fundamentalists acting in the name of Allah.
It changed the nature of Muslim relations in the United States, and it opened a debate that is rarely acknowledged but is still milling over, whether Muslim Americans are accepted as equal citizens.
Since the Constitution is very clear that Muslims should be free to practice their faith like all other Americans, the question should be the other way round.
Can Sharia compliant Muslims ever be part of the American fabric?
The answer is a most definite NO since it is impossible, and I repeat impossible, for any Sharia compliant Muslim to be BOTH a Good Muslim and a Loyal American Citizen. Allah’s Sharia forbids them from combining the two. The loyalty of Sharia compliant Muslims is only to the ‘Ummah’, the Muslim world.
Not a single ‘expert’ on Islam in the Western world ever brought to the attention of peoples the following facts:
Of all the hundreds of different religious, ethnic, political and cultural groups that came to the shores of the USA and Europe, seeking a better and freer life, only Sharia compliant Muslims who escape their abysmal Sharia controlled dysfunctional, illiberal countries, seek shelter and freedom in the USA and Europe intending – with obscene degrees of stupidity, perfidy, duplicity and mendacity – to bring with them and implement the very Sharia that they were escaping from to undermine the host countries of Christian Europe and the Americas.
The foremost and worst victims of the Islamic belief system are the followers of Muhammad who have been indoctrinated for the last 1400 years – by Muhammad’s Quran and Sunna – to believe that they (Muslims) must be the Eternal and Mortal enemies of every human being on Earth who is not a Muslim called Kuffar/Infidels (currently 80% of humanity; Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Pagans, etc.) until such time that all ‘others’ are either subjected to Allah’s Sharia or be exterminated.
To cover up their disloyalty, Muslims accuse all those who point out the TRUTH about Islam, of bigotry, racism and the asinine oxymoronic Islamophobia. The most egregious liars and treasonous entity in this field, is CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) who invariably use lawfare to silence the Truth especially since most American Judges and lawyers have never bothered to read let alone study Muhammad’s Quran or Sharia and hence they get away with murder.
On Thursday Nov. 5, 2009, a day that had dawned chilly but bright in Killeen, Texas, quickly turned bloody as a U.S. Army psychiatrist walked into an on-post resiliency centre while shouting “Allahu Akbar” (the Muslim terror verse) and began shooting.
Nidal Malik Hasan – a Muslim US officer of Palestinian parents – fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others, before Fort Hood civilian police Sergeant Mark Todd shot him, ending the rampage. He is still alive and not executed.
The tragedy in the USA and Europe, is the wilful total denial by almost all the leaders in politics, media, clergy and academia to connect the crystal clear dots between Islamic terror and Muhammad’s Quran even when officer Nidal and every Muslim terrorist shouts takbir “Allahu Akbar” before slaughtering non-Muslims and even when ISIS, al Qaeda, BokoHaram and al Shabab recite Quranic verses justifying their horrendous deeds to prove the validity of their actions to please their demonic god, Allah.
Americans already have perfect examples of what I am pointing out in the Sharia compliant Muslims such as Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib who show no respect or appreciation for the Constitution or for the USA, insult Christians and Jews and they do so in public, with impunity and without any repercussions. Imagine the nightmare when Congress will have dozens more like them.
In both Europe and the USA, most Muslims would rather have Sharia than the European law or the US Constitution. There have been many polls conducted on this subject by independent bodies asserting this. In many European cities, there are NO Go zones where only Muslims are allowed and not even the Police, Ambulance or Fire Brigades can dare go in. These are mini states within the State and are growing in numbers and spreading in size.
Unless and until Americans and Europeans wake up very soon to the existential threat posed by Sharia compliant Muslims in their midst, Islam will most assuredly replace Christianity in the next 20 to 30 years in both Europe and the Americas.
Warning: Warped Minds of Democrats
Warning: Warped Minds of Democrats
For years, I have tried to fathom how otherwise intelligent human beings can literally in full light contort, deny and or ignore Facts & Reality.
On the one hand, being very knowledgeable about the Islamic belief system, I fully comprehend how and why Muslims conduct their invariably hate mongering, warmongering and aggressive behaviour vis-a-vis non Muslims/ Kuffar/ Infidels.
After all, they are only following their scripture that mandates them to follow Muhammad’s and Allah’s Depraved Sharia.
On the other hand, Democrat politicians (and their so-called ‘liberal’ supporters) are Americans who should know, abide by and follow the Constitution; which they have been proving repeatedly, not to be the case.
Unfortunately, I have come to the conclusion that these creatures will never think rationally; not because they are stupid, not at all; but because their view of the world is entirely subjective base on their belief that they – from their ivory towers – are the most knowledgeable people while all other Americans are ignorant peasants.
Because they are powerful in the Media and Academia, they unfortunately use their intelligence and positions to obfuscate, contort and twist Facts and Reality to fit their bubble view of national and international events by literally confusing ‘We the ‘deplorable’ People” with new tongue twisting and asinine words. They use words to change perception and they are, unfortunately, succeeding.
Democrats never miss a chance to miss a chance to exploit any tragic event to advance their agenda. They do so by manipulating, attacking and with malice aforethought, blatantly and shamelessly deceiving Americans, in plain sight.
No matter how many times they are proven wrong, they are relentless with their mendacities and deceptions. They inflict enormous and very long lasting psychological, financial and sometimes physical damage upon their otherwise innocent American victims, without showing an iota of remorse and coming clean with sincere apologies.
They failed miserably for almost five years of immense, costly and relentless attacks to impeach President Trump to prove any collusion with Putin.
They once more failed to impeach Trump over Ukraine.
They use their criminally negligent fake media stooges to publicly lynch without due process of law of “Innocent before Proven Guilty”, those whom they label White Racists, Trump supporters and Patriotic Americans.
Although their mantra is always about their support of all minorities and the underdog, their actions betray their total Racism, Intolerance, blatant Deception and Hate for everything American.
These demonic Democrat cretins – even before there was any police investigation – attempted to publicly lynch Kyle Rittenhouse as a White Racist (he legally killed two white felons in self-defense) and continued to defame him even after Jurors found him Not Guilty on all five counts.
I sincerely hope that Kyle will take each and every single one of them, individually and collectively to the cleaners in courts of law, to teach them NOT to convict before due process as per Constitution.
They have tragically succeeded in indoctrinating several generations of American youth into becoming Undisciplined, Under Educated, Unthinking and Unpatriotic robots, easily manipulated by the Democrat controlled Media and Academia.
They succeeded because for the last 60 years, most American parents were totally ignorant of what their children were being taught. They unfortunately truly believed that the teachers had as good intentions for their children as they had.
What opened the eyes of the parents to the true calamity were the months spent at home on video education because of the Pandemic. They found out, very belatedly, how truly depraved thousands of teachers and educators actually are.
These ‘liberal’ Democrat voting educators were and still are brain washing children from age three about sex, homosexuality, transgenderism and gender elimination.
There are no more Male and Female restrooms. No more Racial Integration. No more appropriating each other’s culture, race or history even in theaters or movies.
It is now immoral to have children who are more achievers than others. All humans must be equal in everything. Merit and success must not be rewarded lest low achievers feel discriminated against.
They have divided Americans by Race, Colour, Ethnicity, Social and Economic standing.
When a society is made up of only ‘chiefs’ it must only collapse into oblivion since there are no ‘braves’ to defend it.
It is amazing to watch and read how everything Democrats/Liberals propose, reject, support, or oppose, are the exact opposite of what ordinary Americans want or aspire for.
Assuming it was true that Biden was elected fairly by an unbelievable majority (surpassing even that of the Black Messiah, Obama); they are now harvesting what they sawed: divided Americans; collapsing infrastructure; more deaths from Covid under Biden than under Trump; a huge jump in prices of everyday necessities and energy than ever before; enormous increases in the value of houses and rentals.
Each of the above increases will cause a lot of financial, psychological and social pain invariably upon the middle class and lower incomes, irrespective of their race or ethnicity; the very people that Democrats promised to defend.
Biden’s popularity is flushing down the sewer where they belong but not in enough low figures. Still he has – even under the current abysmal circumstances – a very high and abnormal figure of 38%.
Democrat politicians and their supporters are running scared and will attempt to do their utmost –illegally or legally – to make sure that the 2022 elections will keep them in power to continue Communising the USA.
Whether or not enough Americans will be rational in 2022 to vote these Democrat criminal politicians out, is the $64,000,000 question.
Can Abu Dhabi bring the Ayatollahs to Sanity?
Can Abu Dhabi bring the Ayatollahs to Sanity?
While Biden and his clueless administration keep trying – with obscene and futile degrees of stupidity and soupiness – to bring the terrorist Ayatollahs’ regime to discuss their Nuclear re armament; a very small Sunni Arab country – the United Arab Emirates – is flexing her political and economic muscle and self-confidence vis a vis their arch enemy, the Shia Ayatollahs regime.
Abu Dhabi is literally leading Donald J Trump’s unbelievable Abraham Accords achievement, to bring others in, by showing resolve and courage while facing an implacable and very dangerous terrorist regime.
On December 3rd 2021, the United Arab Emirates and France signed a $19bn arms deal that will see the Gulf state acquire 80 Rafale fighter jets – among the best in the world – and 12 military helicopters.
This is the largest-ever overseas sale of Rafale jets which was sealed on Friday as French President Emmanuel Macron began a two-day trip to the Gulf, during which he also visited Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
With the Saudis, Macron is trying to help save Lebanon from Iran’s proxies, Hezbollah, which has turned a once thriving democracy into a dysfunctional political and economic state subservient to Iran. Both France and Saudi want all militias in Lebanon to disarm and only the Lebanese army to remain.
Macron’s visit comes at a time when Gulf Arab states have voiced uncertainty and apprehension regarding Biden and the United States’ focus on the region, even as they seek more weapons from their key security ally.
In fact, Iran vehemently objected to this deal accusing France of increasing tensions in the area.
On top of this, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett received an invitation from the crown prince of Abu Dhabi to visit the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Bennett met recently with UAE Ambassador Mohamed Al Khaja and Bahraini Ambassador Khaled Al Jalahma. Al Khaja extended an invitation to Bennett “from His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi in the UAE, for an official visit to the UAE”.
Both countries continue taking steps towards peace and to strengthen their relations “for the sake of our people and future generations.
In September 2020, the UAE and Israel signed a US-sponsored deal to normalize their relations. Since then, the two countries have signed dozens of bilateral agreements in various fields, including investment, banking services, and tourism. Three other Arab states – Bahrain, Morocco, and Sudan – joined the UAE in the controversial move that came to be known as the Abraham Accords.
On July 14, 2021, the UAE opened its embassy in Israel.
Several companies in Israel and the United Arab Emirates have signed deals together in recent weeks, bolstering optimism about the corporate benefits stemming from last year’s normalization of relations between the Jewish state and the Gulf monarchy.
Government-to-government deals and the emergence of private sector collaboration has assuaged previous concerns that the so-called Abraham Accords, which Israel signed with the UAE and Bahrain in September last year, were slow to generate tangible economic activity.
Jordan, Israel and the UAE in November agreed to build renewable electricity and water desalination plants, seeking to boost energy and water security across the Jordan River. The plan includes solar plants generating 600 megawatts in Jordan for export to Israel, with Israel building water desalination plants to export 200m cubic meters of water to Jordan.
“This [project] is the latest milestone made possible by expanding peace in the region”. The signing, witnessed by US special presidential envoy for climate John Kerry – who was 100% certain, such an event would NOT occur prior to a Palestinian State being created – marks a significant development in Israeli-Jordanian relations, which had failed to develop beyond a cold peace since the late 1990s.
State-led transactions were also clinched at the Dubai Air Show in November. Israel Aerospace Industries signed a deal with Dubai’s Emirates to convert four passenger airliners into freighters to service the booming cargo sector. The Israeli government-owned company also agreed to develop unmanned surface vehicles, or drone ships, with UAE state-controlled defence group Edge. The chief executive said “We are planning for the coming decades, not days and weeks ahead.”
Sheikh Tahnoon, a brother of the country’s de facto ruler and Abu Dhabi’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Zayed, discussed improving bilateral ties and developments in regional affairs in the capital Tehran on Monday. He is on a visit to Iran for high-level talks that are seen as a possible sign of thawing relations between the two countries.
He first met his counterpart Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), before meeting Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi.
According to an Iranian readout of the meeting, Shamkhani said developing “warm and friendly” ties with neighbours is Iran’s top priority in foreign policy.
Sheikh Khalifa, said in a tweet that the visit of Sheikh Tahnoun to Tehran comes “as a continuation of Emirati efforts to strengthen ties and co-operation in the region and in line with what serves national interests”.
He added that “the UAE seeks to solidify regional stability and prosperity through developing positive ties by dialogue”.
With business ties to Iran stretching back more than a century, the emirate of Dubai, 150 kilometers across the Gulf, has long been one of Iran’s main links to the outside world.
However, political differences remain, particularly in relation to regional developments. In Yemen, the UAE is a key member of the Saudi-led coalition that backs the internationally recognised government against Iran-allied Houthi fighters.
Yet, in-spite of all of the above, the question that should be asked by so called American ‘political experts’: WHY has Iran agreed to meet with The UAE’s top national security adviser Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan?
The reason should be really very simple: The ECONOMY STUPID!
Most people do not realize that the Soviet Union collapsed, NOT by war but because of catastrophic economic failures due to insane mismanagement and with no incentives given to their people to excel.
The terrorist Ayatollahs’ regime has been and continues to be squandering hundreds of billions of dollars on terrorising and de-stabilizing their neighbours so as to rule over them. This despicable theocratic regime wants to be the hegemon of the Middle East and beyond through terror. Billions that should have been spent on their infrastructure and their own citizens.
They have had a devastating drought that has decimated their farms, animals and farmers for lack of water. On top of all these, they have ignored treating their COVID 19 pandemic correctly or even timely.
Their different national groups – not Persians – are chafing to overthrow them.
They are watching the Gulf states make peace with Israel and hence gaining technology, expertise and finance in irrigation, agriculture, medicines, science and technology. As much as they hate Israel and the West, reality may at last be setting in.
They need financial help. The only ones who can and may help them are the wealthy neighbouring Arab states ONLY if they – Iranians – mend their way and behave as good neighbours. Whether the regime leaders will actually do so, remains to be seen.
Democrats’ Horrendous Nightmare: Winsome Sears
Democrats’ Horrendous Nightmare: Winsome Sears
After the civil war, the Democrat Party was able to continue enslaving Black Americans on the plantation, Financially, Intellectually and Educationally.
The tragedy is the fact that most Black Americans are not even willing to get off this humiliating servitude, for whatever reasons one can mention, because reality dictates that, contrary to all the false propaganda and lies emanating from the Democrat Party and their stooges in the media, the Republicans offer a much better dignified and rewarding future, as Donald J Trump was able to achieve in his 4 years, against all odds.
The democrat Party only exists through dividing Americans and pitting them one against the other, racially, ethnically, socially, educationally and financially; otherwise, they would not exist.
Tragically, between 38-42% of Americans are too dumb or undereducated to realise this, hence they continue supporting the very politicians who never want them to wake up.
Therefore, when any Black American, declares publicly that he/she is out of the Plantation, all the Democrat elite and their lock step criminally negligent main line media stooges, start vilifying, demonizing and de humanizing them to shut them up because such Blacks are proving their agenda, not only false, but totally anti-American.
This is exactly why, the Democrats and their Fascist supporters in the Media, Social platforms and Academia are insanely accusing a patriotic marine Black woman, Winsome Earle Sears, the newly elected Lt Governor of Virginia of being a slave and a stooge of white supremacists; because without their eternal and false race card, moron Democrats have absolutely no other weapon to use.
While the media keep calling the Virginia voters racist – the Democrats’ one and only Go To card – they are deliberately and with malice aforethought not pointing out, is that Winsome Sears is a Black Republican who is winning Virginia’s lieutenant governor’s race – the first woman of colour to win this particular office in the state’s history in what used to be a Blue state.
Befitting her name Winsome, which means delightful, appealing and engaging, she displayed all of these lovely characteristics in her humble and very patriotic acceptance speech.
Unlike many utterly useless, spineless and ingrate Black leaders, she did not whine about her blackness nor bite the hand that feeds her. On the contrary, she stood up ramrod tall, self-assured, self- made no holds barred legal immigrant, who was so grateful for America allowing her to get to such a high level in politics, in spite of all the Democrats’ and leftists’ asinine declarations that America is systemically racist.
No other political entity on Earth would ever declare its nation (no matter how truly racist it may be) that it is a racist country. Only the despicable Democrats, who have neither love nor any appreciation of what was – until Biden and Democrats took over – an incredibly successful Constitutional Republic.
When I listen and look at her gutless and ingrate Black detractors – especially the venomous female ones – and compare their looks and assess their contributions to America, I have to shake my head at 38-42% of braindead Americans who watch their programs that allow them to be paid millions of dollars per annum when they are not competent to clean the toilets at Penn Station.
So let me compare backgrounds to prove my premise.
Winsome Sears represents the quintessential American success story. She was born into poverty in Kingston, Jamaica. When she was six her family emigrated to the US. Her father arrived with only $1.75 in his pocket. The family settled in The Bronx, NY.
Rather than complaining and whining about his low financial situation and being actually disadvantaged and turning his circumstances into a crutch, he instead, encompassed the American Dream. He believed strongly in education and self- reliance as a means to lift oneself up. He worked at a succession of menial jobs while continuing his education. He passed these attributes on to Winsome. She attended community college, then earned a BA in English with a minor in economics from Old Dominion University and an MA in organizational leadership from Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA.
Winsome Sears is the Democrats’ worst nemesis. She contradicts and negates their core belief, namely that people of colour are born victims. They are victims of a racist White society. They are born oppressed and are destined to remain oppressed. Being a black woman and an immigrant she negates the Dems’ “go-to” criticism of any successful GOP politician. They cannot credibly call her a racist, a misogynist, anti-immigrant or a white supremacist; because she is after all, all of them combined.
Let us examine Joy Reid. Remarkably, although her parents were also immigrants – Her father was from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and her mother a college professor and nutritionist from Guyana. Her father was an engineer who was mostly absent from the family; her parents eventually divorced and her father returned to the Congo.
She grew up as a very bitter and racist woman against the USA, no matter what jobs she took. Her understanding of America and Americans is the exact opposite of those of Winsome. She is so bitter that Winsome is a Black Republican, like the actual racist and coward that she really is, she accused Winsome of being a slave to Whites. But a marine like Winsome came back with the ultimate challenge “Are you woman enough to debate me in public?” I do not think we should hold our breath waiting for an answer.
Another race baiter is Jemele Hill, born in the USA from Black American citizens. She too uses the race card, at every possible occasion against White Americans. Both Joy & Jemele carry their burdensome chip on their shoulders all their life, while Winsome is free from their mental shackles and therefore excels exceptionally and more constructively.
These two despicable racist cretins, represent fully the Democrat warped and totally irrational mind-set, that Americans are systemically racist, although it was the majority of White ‘racist’ Americans who helped elect the Black traitor in chief, Barack Hussein Obama, twice to the presidency.
What happened in Virginia should be copied by Americans in every state in the Union. This is the first glimmer of hope that “We the People” are at last waking up to the fact that the survival of the Republic rests entirely with their votes to remove as many corrupt and unpatriotic politicians, governors and mayors as possible in 2022.
Another ray of hope has been the recent Kyle Rittenhouse trial when the mostly White jurors – in spite of all the threats against them – exonerated the young man of ALL counts of murdering two and wounding one white felons – not Black -who were attempting to harm him, as an act of self-defence, as the trial truly proved.
Kyle’s lawyers should now go after every single one of the media platforms and talk show hosts, individually and collectively, who are on the record publicly lynching him even before there was a trial and against the Constitutional legal requirement of ‘presumption of innocence until found guilty’.
