The more things change, the more they remain the same!

Reader comment on item: Friendless in the Middle East

Submitted by Ghulam Muhammed, Mumbai (India), Nov 8, 2011 at 11:24

West has opened a Pandora's box. Nobody doubts that the ongoing studies on 'regime change' in both friendly or unfriendly countries, in the West or in the East, centers on US interests. Whatever the world mainstream madia, paid or unpaid, may spread its version of the events of ' Arab Spring', details are in public domain how US has been nurturing opposition leaderships and movements all around the world, as the first line of attack, once its interest are threatened or need change in leadership.

The Tunisian ousting of Ben Ali has been widely known in knowledgeable circle as a Jewish Rothschild banking plot to topple Ben Ali's son starting Islamic Banking in Tunisia, which could have threatened the Jewish banking families monopoly in Tunisia. Media has been fooling the world on the martyrdom of Bu Aziz. Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq have all been successors to regimes tied up with Soviet Union after the decolonization spree of the 40's. They had switched loyalties to US later under different arrangements, but the stranglehold on power remained with liberal, left oriented leadership as well as rank and file power structure. However, the Left liberals always remained in the minority, with the majority being left out of the equation. That had to change.

Now if Daniel Pipes thinks bringing back the same Left liberals to rule all these countries, he should not ignore that all such regimes will remain without majority support and will be threatened again and again.

I have to admit that I had not known Rothschild money was behind the overthrow of Ben Ali.
