Out of Desert Poverty, a Caldron of Rage in the Sinai

MICHAEL SLACKMAN
EL ARISH, Egypt, May 6 — The Melahy tribe of northern Sinai is the poorest in the region, its members herding other people’s cattle, farming other people’s land, its very name used as a slur among local Bedouins. And so Nasser Khamis al-Melahy held great promise for his family when he left his sun-baked home here for law school in the Nile Delta.

But he never did practice law. Instead, he returned to this city on the banks of the Mediterranean and, the authorities say, helped set up an Islamist terrorist cell that has staged five suicide attacks in the Sinai, including a triple bombing in the resort town of Dahab last month.

Mr. Melahy’s turn to terrorism is one aspect of the strong undercurrent of anger and tension roiling the Middle East, where disillusionment and hostility toward national governments move many young people to adopt Islam as an identity, supplanting nationality or ethnicity. It also underscores a challenge facing many Arab countries where local customs and heritage are being abandoned by young people who instead adopt the dress, customs and behavior of conservative Islam.

Iranians aspire to overthrow mullahs

Iran NuclearFalling into the hands of the United Nations Security Council, Iranian mullahs are now trying any possibility to slowdown the decision making process to somehow pass this crisis.

On one hand the mullahs are threatening that they are now a “nuclear power” and incase of any measure by the Security Council “Iran will change its behavior.”

The mullahs’ regime tried to misuse the International May Day to divert the worker demonstrators’ aims to display support for its nuclear weapons program; a plan that the brave Iranian workers, by denouncing regimes policies, did not let succeed.

The dictator mullahs ruling in Iran had planed for some time to stage a demonstration in front of the old US embassy for a crowd to chant slogans saying, “Having nuclear energy is our right.  But the workers started playing a different tune: “staging strikes is our right.” 

Iran’s Ahmadinejad named predator of press freedom.

Agh Mahmoud

Uncle Mahmoud wants YOU to be the next
Nuclear Suicide Bomber


May 4, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – Reporters without boarders named Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the new president of Iran who took office in 2005, as a predator of press freedom. 

This exclusive club maintained by the organization expanded in 2005 to include Ahmadinejad, due to making inflammatory remarks as soon as he took office, forcing many newspapers to closedown.

According to this International Watch Organization for press freedom, predators are those people in powerful positions who are attacking journalists and media outlets.

Just two weeks ago Ahmadinejad welcomed himself to the World Nuclear Club in a special ceremony.  As it seems he is busy joining clubs around the world.

Iran, charging ahead with war

Nima Sharif

Ahmadinejad hitlerApril 30, 1945 Hitler committed suicide.  One week later, May 7 and 8, Nazi Germany’s army surrendered.  And that was the final scene of the biggest war in written human history that claimed the lives of 55 million people.

Those days the Fascist state considered any discontent and opposition to the war as a betrayal.  Hitler called his expansionism, extending German’s motherland and he depicted his war as a National war aiming to get back what was taken away from Germany.  With no shame, he considered the war a defensive one. 

Ironically at the same time when German tanks were maneuvering around in Belgium getting ready to overtake France, Hitler’s party staged an anti-war demonstration in Saarbrucken.  The Nazi peace advocates chanted, “Why fight? Let’s be friends” or, “We condemn war.”

And peace demonstration was the name for the charade the mullahs’ put together in Paris just last week.  Iran’s official and unofficial embassy cadres in Paris took to the streets (about a hundred of them) to “cry for peace.” 

The demonstration was a disaster because no one showed up and those passing by left as soon as they found out what the true nature of the organizers were.

Mullahs’ double talk

May 1, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – According to our sources in Iran, shortly after the announcement about direct takes between Iran and the U.S. on Mullahs’ meddling in Iraqi affairs, Tehran rulers, fearful about the effect the news would have in the ranks of their Security Forces and in a desperate attempt to minimize its’ disappointing setbacks among regime allies in the Middle East, Iran’s Foreign Ministry issued a classified directive to its’ embassies in Islamic nations "briefing everyone to curb misinterpretation of the concept".

Cleary this is a sharp U-turn on the part of the mullahs’ since for years they advertised against U.S "imperialism" for internal consumption. Hardly anyone has forgotten slogans at Friday prayers opposing the United States and providing ideological pretence to recruit "suicide bombers" for terrorist actions.

Iran, is waging war the only way?

Nima Sharif

MissileThere is a lot of talk and concern expressed recently in the news media about a possible war against Iran.  While the concerns are real, and I share in those concerns; there is one important aspect that should not be ignored.  It is important that in avoiding war we be careful not to fall for the ploys of an Islamic fascist dictator in Iran who is trying to use our peaceful aspirations to buy time to proceed with his own evil plans.

We live at a critical period in history.  What we choose to do can on the one hand bring peace and freedom to the whole world, including the Middle East or it can give way to the likes of another Hitler left free to do the unthinkable. Very soon we – the supporters of peace — will be forced into another war similar to World War II or even worse.

Today a fine hairline separates the realistic pursuit for peace and what would practically be a surrender to fundamentalist terrorists in Iran.

For the past 27 years, the policy of the West toward the mullahs ruling Iran has been a policy of appeasement.  It has been called a “carrot and stick” policy, which during Khatami’s reign, the former president of the theocracy in Iran, was called “Critical Dialog” by the Europeans. Of course Khatami himself used to call it the “Dialog of Civilizations.”

The policy was designed to use economical and political incentives to encourage the Iranians to come to the negotiating table where reason would hopefully prevail.

Iran: Dream of becoming a regional power

Senior official: Iran is becoming a regional power able to confront US with suicide operations

Iran’s nuclear issue is expected to be discussed at the Security Council in early May.


April 29, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – An Iranian television program aired an interview with Mohsen Rezai, secretary of the State Exigency Council.  This interview reveals some of the behind the scene discussions in between the high rank officials of Iran.

“The nuclear, human rights and long-range missile issues are all pretexts to prevent Iran’s progress.” Rezaie said. 

“But we are breaking the blockade. Our influence in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Persian Gulf region shows that we are transforming from a national government to a regional power” Rezai bragged about Tehran’s active involvement in Iraq, Lebanon and other countries.  “A giant is slowly growing up in Iran, gaining dominance in its surrounding area. If it is empowered economically and technologically parallel to the political issues, after 20 or 30 years, when the west lifts its head, it will see that a small but regional empire has taken shape” he continued.

Referring to the transfer of Iran’s nuclear file to the UN Security Council by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) he concluded, “Therefore, the nuclear issue is a pretext to prevent Iran’s progress.”

The Global Center for Islamic Studies in Qum (GCISQ)

An Institution for training of fundamentalism and terrorism

Stop  Fundamentalism Reports

terroristsThe school is designed specially for the propose of training foreign agents carrying terror assignments under the Mullahs’ regime directions in Iran.  On the out set, the institute is advocating spread of Islam in the rest of the world, however its real task is to brain wash and turn young recruits into time bombs ready to explode at mullahs’ orders.

From the early days of emergence of Islamic regime in Iran, back in late 1970s, recruiting, training and dispatching young recruits  to other countries as missionaries of Khomeini’s thoughts has been the order of the day.  In September of 1979, the "Guardian Council of Foreign Students" was established in Qum’s main theological center and began its work in Hojjateh institute.

In 1986, with small changes in the formation of this body, "Global Center for Islamic Science" came to existence.

In the 90s, Khomeini emerged as the Supreme Leader of the Mullahs’ regime with the power to choose the head of GCIS directly.
