Conspiracy Theories in the Middle East

The truth about fiction

Does the Middle East have a propensity for conspiracy theories? Here’s something to think about: Marxism and Salman Rushdie were Jewish plots, Osama Bin Laden is an American agent and after the attacks on Afghanistan he was spotted in Salt Lake City eating tacos, and finally, ayatollahs are either a British or a Communist creation. The obvious logic behind most conspiracy theories is that they divert blame, thus saving theorists from a critical self-examination. Middle Easterners have deeply rooted feelings of suspicion of others, coupled with an outlook of superiority. This, says Dr Bishara, reinforces their lack of self-confidence thus pushing them to look outwards for explanations of their difficult living conditions.

Egyptian Historian Zaynab Abd Al-'Aziz: Vatican Delegated the US to Carry Out 9/11


And how could the US win legitimacy for this without anyone saying that they are perpetrating massacres and waging a Crusader war? It fabricated the 9/11 show. I call it a fabrication because much has been written on this. We are also to blame. Why do we accept a single perspective? Countless books were written, some of which were even translated into Arabic, like Thierry Meyssan's 9/11 The Big Lie and Pentagate. "Pentagate" like Watergate He brings documents to prove that the method used in destroying the three (sic) towers was "controlled demolition." This is an architectural engineering theory, which was invented by the Americans. They teach it in their Universities. They make movies and documentaries about it. They incorporated it in movie scenarios and then carried it out in real life. Why do we accept this?

It all boils down to the irrational hatred for Jews that unites all the diverse peoples of the earth. It transcends national boundaries and religious differences and is deep even into the marrow of their bones. I don't know the why of it, but voracious readings have convinced me that it is the controlling factor and their conventional wisdom, kill all the Jews, and we'll be able to live in peace, but they forgot Pastor Martin Niemöller's warning:

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

I hope those of us not infected by this horrible disease speak out and put a lie to the good pastor's words.

Amusing aside: Even little teeny bopper sex kittens like ashlee are drawn to your blog fjordman. I don't know if that's a compliment or not, but if she keeps reading, she may get the education she didn't get going through the U.S. public school system.

What can you expect from cultures where no critical thinking is taught? Not one of the top 500 universities in the world is in an Islamic country -- I wonder why? :)

BTW, Fjordman: In reference to "Ashlee," you must be hitting the big time when the porno sites start trolling on your blog!

A spammer? What does that mean in this instance?
