in response to reader comment: One State - Maybe - But Not On Ummah Model

Dear All,

I would like to remind all of you that the basic reason behind the success of the Western economies or Western model has been a single element. Brutal colonialism which was enabled by massive oppression of the colonized communities and transfer of the Wealth obtained through massive colonization to the Western capitals. This was the model that was employed in places like Palestine, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Haiti, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Lebanon ever since the end of the second world war. This model has stopped working for the simple reason that the colonized and oppressed are not ready to take it lying down and ready to fight it out and throw away the colonial West , a way shown along by Hezbollah.

The biggest problem lies that the West does not want others to colonize herself. This is the biggest problem that is actually stopping the spreading of democracy in the West. What you need now is the rapid and massive immigration from the third world to the three main colonizing countries i.e. US, Israel, Canada and Australia and transfer of land and wealth from the ethnic majority communities in the US, Israel, Canada and Australia to the oppressed people of the colonized lands in Africa and Asia. Without wealth transfer there can be no democracy in the Third world.

This is the ultimate truth and you should accept it.
