Man was born free, and everywhere he is in chains.
There are some who may believe themselves masters of others,
and are no less enslaved than they.
How has this change come about?

Jean-Jacques Rousseau, The Social Contract


By Christopher Bollyn,

Politicians in the United States and Britain are made to pass under the yoke of the Zionist masters who control our leading political parties. By forcing our political leaders to accept the Zionist yoke our nations become subjugated and the pro-Israel agenda is forced upon the entire population. Zionist control of Britain's prime ministers Tony Blair and Gordon Brown is explained in this article, "How Mossad Controls our Political Parties."

As the $700 billion bail-out of Zionist fraudsters was being debated in the U.S. Congress a supporter wrote to me saying, "I think we are out of time. If only more good people knew what you know!" I would say that it's not so much what I know, but rather my perspective and the directions I pursue in my investigations that are not found in the media. Because my anti-Zionist perspective is taboo, my views are censored by the Zionist-controlled media. Hence, most people are simply unaware of my research.

Having spent several years in Israel and the Middle East and having studied the history of Zionism (i.e. Jewish nationalism), I know something about the many crimes committed by Zionists during the past century. From this perspective I approach the evidence of Israeli and Zionist involvement in the major crimes of our time, such as 9-11. My investigations have uncovered a great deal of evidence of Israeli involvement in the false-flag terror attacks of 9-11 and other crimes.

For journalists working in the controlled media pursuing such investigations would be "career suicide" as many learned after 9-11. I have also paid a very high price for my research and writing. I learned that Jewish Zionists control even small so-called nationalist newspapers. Most journalists, lawyers, and politicians are primarily interested in advancing their own careers and learn early on to accept the yoke of their Zionist masters — or sacrifice their careers. Ambitious people put their self interest first and agree to go along with lies and corruption rather than stand up for the truth. I've seen it many times.

I am not like that. During the past 30 years, I have witnessed first-hand the extremely brutal Israeli occupation of Palestine and seen how Zionists operate to subjugate entire nations. My years in Palestine/Israel were my political awakening. Zionist control of the mass media and "Holocaust" propaganda serve to protect and promote their criminal agenda. I have watched how the people of America and Europe are deceived and forced to bear the yoke of the ruthless Zionists who control their political systems and media. Thousands of young Americans and Europeans have been maimed or lost their lives in fraudulent wars for Israel in Middle Eastern nations they know nothing about. Americans have become mercenaries of Zionism.

As an American, I can't support either presidential candidate because both are clearly Zionist puppets who espouse positions that I am strongly opposed to. American voters aren't even given a real choice about important things – like the ongoing wars in the Middle East, for example. Both candidates eagerly support the Zionist "War on Terror" and both lobbied hard for the $700 billion "bail-out" to be passed.

I could only support a true anti-war candidate who promised a proper investigation of 9-11 and who supported investing in American infrastructure, such as providing comfortable and efficient passenger trains between our cities. Why are we bailing out investment bankers with taxpayers' money while our cities and infrastructure are crumbling?

Unfortunately, both presidential candidates are pro-war and pro-Israel. These are the only candidates we have to choose from because both parties in the United States are political machines financed and run by Zionists. Third parties, such as the erstwhile Reform Party, are likewise controlled — and run off the tracks. Zionist control of our political parties compels candidates from both parties to support Zionism, an utterly racist and un-American ideology based on a false and dangerous notion of Jewish supremacy. What kind of patriotic American could support that nonsense?


"It is therefore important, if the general will is to be properly ascertained, that there should be no partial society within the state, and that each citizen should decide according to his own opinion," Rousseau wrote in The Social Contract. "When one of the associations, is big enough to triumph over all the others, the outcome is no longer the sum total of small differences, but a single difference, then there is no longer any general will, and the opinion that prevails is only a particular opinion."

The "partial society" that triumphs over all the others in American politics today is Zionism — no other. In the United States, the pro-Israeli position is the only "opinion that prevails" in academia, the mass media, and the political parties with absolutely no consideration for the expense, injustice, and violence it causes. American support for Zionism has clearly been extremely detrimental for the United States of America, yet the support continues, without question. How does this happen?


Israel and the international Zionists control the political parties and news outlets in Europe as well, as the recent death of Austria's Jörg Haider reveals. Oddly, Haider, the leader of Austria's Freedom Party, allowed Peter Sichrovsky, a Jew, to serve as "secretary-general" of his supposedly anti-Zionist party. In 2005, the Times (UK) reported that Sichrovsky, the managing director of the party, had served as a spy for Israel's Mossad for five years. Three years later, after his party won parliamentary elections, Haider was suddenly killed in a very suspicious car accident.

“I wanted to help Israel and certainly did not do anything wrong,” Sichrovsky said. “It’s true, though, that I co-operated with Mossad until my withdrawal from politics in 2002.”

Sichrovsky admitted that he had spied for Mossad, a foreign intelligence agency, because he "wanted to help Israel." At the same time he maintained that he did nothing wrong. This is exactly how many Jews feel about supporting Israel, even when their actions involve breaking the laws of the nations they reside in.

Facing a criminal investigation and charges of spying for a foreign power, Sichrovsky quickly fled to the United States where he began a new career as "a businessman concerned with military co-operation between Israel and China." Sichrovsky's career with Mossad evidently continued after he left Austria.

If Mossad infiltrates "third party" movements in small nations like Austria, imagine what they do to control the two political parties in the United States. How much control does Israeli intelligence have over the major political parties in Britain and the United States? Let's look at the most obvious connections.


The evidence indicates that Israeli intelligence has near complete control of the leading political parties in Britain and the United States. While the Zionist political controllers in London and Washington are well known to the owners of the mass media, discussion of the subject of Zionist or Israeli control of the parties is censored in the media outlets they control. This censorship illustrates how Zionist control of the media serves to deceive the people and cause extreme harm to the nations.

Specific examples of the current pro-Israel bias in the mass media would include the media's unquestioning support of the 9-11 cover-up, the costly and disastrous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the trillion dollar "bail-out." The complete lack of transparency in U.S. elections and discussion of the secretive private companies that run our elections are also censored subjects.

The utterly fraudulent Zionist construct called the "War on Terror" and the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have all been designed and forced onto the American and British nations by Zionists who control the political systems of London, New York, and Washington.

In Britain, the two political leaders who have promoted and supported the Zionist agenda and wars of aggression are Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. Their Zionist paymasters and handlers are not hard to discern, although they are never discussed in the media in such terms.


Michael Abraham Levy, or "Lord Levy," was known as "Lord Cashpoint" (Can it be any more obvious?) when he was the leading fundraiser for the Labour Party from 1994 to 2007. Described as "a long-standing friend of Tony Blair," Levy served as Blair's special envoy to the Middle East from 1998 until 2007, when he was replaced by Gordon Brown's appointee, Michael Williams.

Levy's son, Daniel, is an Israeli citizen (immigrated 1991) who has held high-level positions in Israeli governments since 1995. While his father was bankrolling and managing Tony Blair, the younger Levy was a member of the Israeli negotiating team to the "Oslo 2" agreement during the summer of 1995 under Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. He was also a member of the Israeli delegation to the Palestinian summit at Taba in January 2001.

The younger Levy also served as senior policy adviser to former Israeli Minister of Justice, Yossi Beilin, from March 2000 to March 2001. Under Ehud Barak, Levy served as the prime minister's special adviser and head of the Jerusalem Affairs unit. The Levy link was obviously the connection that gave Israeli intelligence control over the head of the British government - Tony Blair.


Before the Anglo-American occupation of Iraq turned sour, Blair was fond of recalling what he, the first foreign leader to meet George W. Bush, told the newly installed president when they met in early 2001. "We have to do Iraq," is the first thing Blair told Bush, according to his own statements.

Only by understanding that Blair and his New Labour party were financed and controlled by Israeli interests can one understand how Blair was manipulated to support such a reckless and criminal scheme. Similar Zionist forces were at work on Bush.

When Tony Blair and his Zionist handler "Lord Cashpoint" fell from power in June 2007, Gordon Brown, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, assumed the office of prime minister, upon the approval of Queen Elizabeth II — but of course. Prior to becoming prime minister, Brown had served 10 years as Chancellor of the Exchequer, the minister responsible for economic and financial matters in Britain.

Prime Minister Brown, in turn, is bankrolled and controlled by Lord Ronald Cohen, who has replaced the beleaguered and disgraced Lord Levy. The Egyptian-born Cohen is described as "Sir Ronald Cohen, the daddy of England’s private equity industry and a bosom buddy of Prime Minister Gordon Brown."

In the British press Cohen is portrayed as a wealthy Jewish supporter of Brown and New Labour. Cohen's third wife, the Los Angeles-born Sharon Harel-Cohen, is usually described as a film producer whose father, Yossi Harel, commanded the Jewish refugee ship that became known as Exodus in 1947. Her Israeli nationality is seldom discussed.

What the controlled media doesn't tell us about Sharon Harel-Cohen is that she is an Israeli-American whose father was one of the founding chiefs of the Mossad and Israeli military intelligence until his death in April 2008. This means the daughter of one of the founders of Israeli intelligence is part of the team controlling the British prime minister. This is how Mossad has controlled the political leadership of Britain since the 1990s and taken the United States and Britain into two costly and disastrous wars in the Middle East.

Sharon Ruth Harel was born in Los Angeles on March 6, 1952. Her mother, a "Julie Berez" married Mossad officer Joseph Hamburger (a.k.a. Yossi Harel) in 1950 while he was stationed in Los Angeles. Harel was, most likely, engaged in the illegal procurement of weapons, ships, planes, and military technology for the Israeli military. The reports that Harel, one of the highest Mossad agents, was studying at UCLA or M.I.T. are neither substantiated nor credible; this was only his cover. Harel also had two sons, whose names are not known to the author.

(Whether Boaz and Ezra Harel, the two Israeli brothers who ran ICTS, the Mossad-run Israeli airport "security" company involved in the 9-11 attacks, are related to Yossi Harel is an open question I am investigating.)

The Mossad ("agency") actually came into existence in the 1940s as the clandestine agency known as Ha'Mossad Le'Aliya Bet, the secret Zionist agency engaged in bringing Jewish refugees to British-occupied Palestine to swell the Jewish population prior to creating the "Jewish state." In 1946, Joseph Hamburger was sent on a secret mission to provide Mossad agents in Greece with gold to bribe European governments to facilitate the transit of Jews to Palestine, which was then illegal. Some Mossad tactics have not changed at all during the past 60 years — they still buy politicians with gold.

Joe Hamburger (a.k.a. Yossi Harel) commanded four refugee ships and sailed to Israel with an estimated 25,000 immigrants during the period of the British Mandate. U.S. immigration records indicate that Mr. Hamburger used both his real name, Hamburger, and his Israeli name, Harel, during the 1950s, which is typical of Mossad agents.

His 2008 obituaries say that "Yosef" Hamburger was born, with a twin brother, in Jerusalem, British-occupied Palestine, in 1918. At 15, he joined Haganah, the Zionist militia/terrorist group. Five years later he joined the Special Night Squad, an anti-Palestinian terrorist unit. In 1941, Harel joined the Palmach, the "strike force" of the Haganah before transferring to the Palyam, its naval unit.

During the 1948 Zionist war to conquer Palestine, Harel served as the liaison officer to the army’s chief of staff, Yaakov Dori, and played an important role in co-ordinating the Zionist campaign. He was also the personal body guard for Israel’s first president, Chaim Weizmann.

In 1954, Moshe Dayan, chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Forces, called Harel back to Israel to head Unit 131, a secret group that had agents in Arab countries. Harel's immediate task was to cover up the Lavon Affair, the Israeli false-flag terrorism plot designed to turn Britain and the United States against Egypt. David Ben-Gurion, the first Israeli prime minister, assigned Harel to rebuild military intelligence from the ground up. Ben-Gurion, Dayan, and Shimon Peres were actually part of the group that supported the use of false-flag terrorism, such as the Lavon bombings, to achieve their goals. Given this context, Harel must have seen eye-to-eye with Ben-Gurion about deploying Israeli agents in foreign nations. Shiploads of Israelis were sent on missions to America and Europe in the 1950s, often disguised as students.

Harel went on to pursue a successful business career, the Telegraph reported, "which served as a cover for his work for Israeli intelligence."

Like the Democrat "turncoat" Lewis M. Eisenberg, the current head of finance for the Republican National Committee, Cohen changed political parties in order to bankroll the Labour Party of Tony Blair. Cohen was a candidate in the Liberal party in the 1970s and only converted to Blair's New Labour in 1996. Since then he has reportedly given Labour an estimated $5 million and bankrolled Gordon Brown's career.

At their home in London the Cohens "give lavish parties for the likes of the Rothschilds, the Rausing billionaires and Cohen’s old mentor Sir Clive Sinclair." At their home in New York they entertain "their friends the Clintons." And then there is their villa at Mougins, near Cannes.

"Cohen moved into Brown’s orbit in 2000, when the chancellor appointed him chairman of a Treasury fund set up to encourage investment in deprived areas of the country. The next year he was rewarded with a knighthood," according to the Times 2005 profile entitled, "Sir Ronald Cohen: Midas with a mission - to make Gordon king."

Cohen began to replace Levy as Britain's liaison in the Middle East. In 2004, along with Blair and Brown, Cohen met Ehud Olmert, deputy to Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon.

As Brown replaced Blair, Cohen, the multimillionaire venture capitalist, replaced Levy as chief fundraiser for the ruling Labour party. About his connections to Israel, Cohen told the Times: "If you look at my history: born in Egypt, a refugee, married to the daughter of the commander of the Exodus who's an Israeli, there's an obvious connection between me and the region."

Obvious, perhaps, but definitely not discussed in the media.

Cohen, who is called the prime minister's 'private banker', "clearly has influence over Gordon Brown," the Jewish Chronicle wrote in their 2007 interview: "So what exactly is his relationship with Brown? There is a seven-second pause. 'I would classify myself as a friend of the Prime Minister, just as I was a friend of Tony Blair,' he says carefully."

In 2006, Cohen "started to take over the role of government emissary from Lord Levy by meeting Israeli leaders, including the prime minister, Ehud Olmert," the Guardian reported.

Obsession : Radical West's War Against Islam

What is Jihad?

Islamic Holy War? Muslims Killing Jews & Christians?

That is what we are told - by the western media. But what is the real truth behind this word JIHAD? - by Dr. Amir Ali, Ph.D. (May Allah have Mercy on him)

In the linguistic sense, the Arabic word "jihad" means struggling or striving and applies to any effort exerted by anyone. In this sense, a student struggles and strives to get an education and pass course work; an employee strives to fulfill his/her job and maintain good relations with his/her employer; a politician strives to maintain or increase his [1] popularity with his constituents and so on. The term strive or struggle may be used for/by Muslims as well as non-Muslims; for example, Allah, the One and Only True God says in the Quran:

"We have enjoined on people kindness to parents; but if they STRIVE (JAHAD-AKA) to make you ascribe partners with Me that of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not..."
[Noble Quran 29:8 also see 31:15]
In the above two verses of the Quran , it is non-Muslim parents who strive (jahad-aka) to convert their Muslim child back to their religion.

In the West, "jihad" is generally translated as "holy war," a usage the media has popularized. According to Islamic teachings, it is UNHOLY to instigate or start war; however, some wars are inevitable and justifiable. If we translate the words "holy war" back into Arabic, we find "harbun muqaddasatu," or for "the holy war," "al-harbu al-muqaddasatu." WE CHALLENGE any researcher or scholar to find the meaning of "jihad" as holy war in the Quran or authentic Hadith collections or in early Islamic literature. Unfortunately, some Muslim writers and translators of the Quran, the Hadith and other Islamic literature translate the term "jihad" as "holy war," due to the influence of centuries-old Western propaganda. This could be a reflection of the Christian use of the term "Holy War" to refer to the Crusades of a thousand years ago. However, the Arabic words for "war" are "harb" or "qital," which are found in the Quran and Hadith.

For Muslims the term JIHAD is applied to all forms of STRIVING and has developed some special meanings over time. The sources of this development are the Quran (the Word of God revealed to Prophet Muhammad (S) [(S) denotes Sall-Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam, meaning peace and blessings of Allah be upon him]. The Quran and the Hadith use the word "jihad" in several different contexts which are given below:

It is human nature to love what is seen with the eyes and felt with the senses more than the UNSEEN REALITY. The Creator of the Universe and the One God is Allah. He is the Unseen Reality which we tend to ignore and not recognize. The Quran addresses those who claim to be believers:

"O you who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for protectors if they love disbelief over belief; whoever of you takes them for protectors, such are wrong-doers. Say: if your fathers, and your children, and your brethren, and your spouses, and your tribe, and the wealth you have acquired, and business for which you fear shrinkage, and houses you are pleased with are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger and STRIVING in His way: then wait till Allah brings His command to pass. Allah does not guide disobedient folk."
[Noble Quran 9:23-24]

It is indeed a struggle to put Allah ahead of our loved ones, our wealth, our worldly ambitions and our own lives. Especially for a non-Muslim who embraces Islam, it may be a tough struggle due to the opposition of his family, peers and society.

Once a person has made up his mind to put the Creator of the Universe above all else, he often comes under intense pressures. It is not easy to resist such pressures and STRIVE to maintain dedication and love of Allah over all else. A person who has turned to Islam from another religion may be subjected to pressures designed to turn him back to the religion of the family. We read in the Quran:

"So obey not the rejecters of faith, but strive (jahidhum) against them by it (the Quran) with a great endeavor."
[Noble Quran 25:52]

Allah says in the Quran:

"And STRIVE (JADIHU) for Allah with the endeavor (JIHADIHI) which is His right. He has chosen you and has not laid upon you in the DEEN (religion) any hardship..."
[Noble Quran 22:78]

"And whosoever STRIVES (JAHADA), STRIVES (YUJAHIDU) only for himself, for lo! Allah is altogether independent of the universe."
[Noble Quran 29:6]

As for those who strive and struggle to live as true Muslims whose lives are made difficult due to persecution by their opponents, they are advised to migrate to a more peaceful and tolerant land and continue with their struggle in the cause of Allah. Allah says in the Quran:

"Lo! As for those whom the angels take (in death) while they wronged themselves, (the angels) will ask: 'In what you were engaged?' They will way: 'We were oppressed in the land.' (The angels) will say: 'Was not Allah's earth spacious that you could have migrated therein?'"
[Noble Quran 4:97]

"Lo! Those who believe, and those who emigrate (to escape persecution) and STRIVE (JAHADU) in the way of Allah, these have hope of Allah's mercy..."
[Noble Quran 2:218]

Allah tests the believers in their faith and their steadfastness:

"Or did you think that you would enter Paradise while yet Allah knows not those of you who really STRIVE (JAHADU), nor knows those (of you) who are steadfast."
[Noble Quran 3:142]

"And surely We shall try you with something of fear and hunger, and loss of wealth and lives and fruits; but give tidings to the steadfast."
[Noble Quran 2:155]

We find that the Prophet Muhammad (S) and his clan were boycotted socially and economically for three years to force him to stop his message and compromise with the pagans but he resisted and realized a moral victory [2].

Allah declares in the Quran:

"As for those who STRIVE (JAHADU) in Us (the cause of Allah), We surely guide them to Our paths, and lo! Allah is with the good doers."
[Noble Quran 29:69]

When we are faceD with two competing interests, it becomes jihad to choose the right one, as the following Hadith exemplify:

"Aisha, wife of the Prophet (S) asked, 'O Messenger of Allah, we see jihad as the best of deeds, so shouldn't we join it?' He replied, 'But the best of jihad is a perfect Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah).'"
[Sahih Al-Bukhari #2784]

At another occasion, a man asked the Prophet Muhammad (S):

"'Should I join the jihad?' He asked, 'Do you have parents?' The man said, 'Yes!' The Prophet (S) said, 'Then strive by serving them!'"
[Sahih Al-Bukhari #5972]

Yet another man asked the Messenger of Allah (S):

"'What kind of jihad is better?' He replied, 'A word of truth in front of an oppressive ruler!'"
[Sunan Al-Nasa'i #4209]

The Messenger of Allah (S) said: "...the MUJAHID (one who carries out jihad) is he who STRIVES against himself for the sake of Allah, and the MUHAJIR (one who emigrates) is he who abandons evil deeds and sin."
[Sahih Ibn Hibban #4862]

The Quran narrates the experiences of a large number of Prophets and good people who suffered a great deal trying to convey the message of Allah to mankind. For examples, see the Quran 26:1-190, 36:13-32. In the Quran, Allah specifically praises those who strive to convey His message:

"Who is better in speech than one who calls (other people) to Allah, works righteous, and declares that he is from the Muslims."
[Noble Quran 41:33]

Under adverse conditions it takes great courage to remain a Muslim, declare oneself to be a Muslim and call others to Islam. We read in the Quran:

"The (true) believers are only those who believe in Allah and his messenger and afterward doubt not, but STRIVE with their wealth and their selves for the cause of Allah. Such are the truthful."
[Noble Quran 49:15]

Allah declares in the Quran:

"To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to defend themselves), because they are wronged - and verily, Allah is Most Powerful to give them victory - (they are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right - (for no cause) except that they say, 'Our Lord is Allah'..."
[Noble Quran 22:39-40]

The Quran permits fighting to defend the religion of Islam and the Muslims. This permission includes fighting in self-defense and for the protection of family and property. The early Muslims fought many battles against their enemies under the leadership of the Prophet Muhammad (S) or his representatives. For example, when the pagans of Quraysh brought armies against Prophet Muhammad (S), the Muslims fought to defend their faith and community [3]. The Quran adds:

"Fight in the cause of Allah against those who fight against you, but do not transgress limits. Lo! Allah loves not aggressors. ...And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against transgressors."
[Noble Quran 2:190-193]

In the late period of the Prophet Muhammad's (S) life, the tribe of Banu Khuza'ah became his ally. They were living near Makkah which was under the rule of the pagan Quraysh, Prophet Muhammad's (S) own tribe. The tribe of Banu Bakr, an ally of Quraysh, with the help of some elements of Quraysh, attacked Banu Khuza'ah invoked the treaty and demanded Prophet Muhammad (S) to come to their help and punish Quraysh. The Prophet Muhammad (S) organized a campaign against Quraysh of Makkah which resulted in the conquest of Makkah which occurred without any battle [4].

Allah orders the Muslims in the Quran:

"If you fear treachery from any group, throw back (their treaty) to them, (so as to be) on equal terms. Lo! Allah loves not the treacherous."
[Noble Quran 8:58]

Prophet Muhammad (S) undertook a number of armed campaigns to remove treacherous people from power and their lodgings. He had entered into pacts with several Jewish tribes, however, some of them proved themselves treacherous. Prophet Muhammad (S) launched armed campaigns against these tribes, defeated and exiled them from Medina and its surroundings [5].

Indeed, it is difficult to mobilize people to fight when they see no invaders in their territory; however, those who are charged with responsibility see dangers ahead of time and must provide leadership. The Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (S), had the responsibility to protect his people and the religion he established in Arabia. Whenever he received intelligence reports about enemies gathering near his borders he carried out preemptive strikes, broke their power and dispersed them [6]. Allah ordered Muslims in the Quran:

"Fighting is prescribed upon you, and you dislike it. But it may happen that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. And Allah knows and you know not."
[Noble Quran 2:216]

Allah declares in the Quran:

"They ask you (Muhammad) concerning fighting in the Sacred Month. Say, 'Fighting therein is a grave (offense) but graver is it in the sight of Allah to prevent access to the path of Allah, to deny Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, and drive out its inhabitants. Persecution is worse than killing. Nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith, if they can..."
[Noble Quran 2:217]

"And those who, when an oppressive wrong is inflicted on them, (are not cowed but) fight back."
[Noble Quran 42:39]

To gain this freedom, Prophet Muhammad (S) said:

"STRIVE (JAHIDU) against the disbelievers with your hands and tongues."
[Sahih Ibn Hibban #4708]

The life of the Prophet Muhammad (S) was full of STRIVING to gain the freedom to inform and convey the message of Islam. During his stay in Makkah he used non-violent methods and after the establishment of his government in Madinah, by the permission of Allah, he used armed struggle against his enemies whenever he found it inevitable.

Allah admonishes Muslims in the Quran:

"And why should you not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)? - Men, women, and children, whose cry is: 'Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You, one who will protect; and raise for us from You, one who will help.'" (4:75)

The mission of the Prophet Muhammad (S) was to free people from tyranny and exploitation by oppressive systems. Once free, individuals in the society were then free to chose Islam or not. Prophet Muhammad's (S) successors continued in his footsteps and went to help oppressed people. For example, after the repeated call by the oppressed people of Spain to the Muslims for help, Spain was liberated by Muslim forces and the tyrant rulers removed. After the conquest of Syria and Iraq by the Muslims, the Christian population of Hims reportedly said to the Muslims:

"We like your rule and justice far better than the state of oppression and tyranny under which we have been living." [7]

The defeated rulers of Syria were Roman Christians, and Iraq was ruled by Zoarastrian Persians.


Muslims should remove tyranny, treachery, bigotry, and ignorance and replace them with justice and equity. We should provide truthful knowledge and free people from the bondage of 'associationism' (SHIRK, or multiple gods), prejudice, superstition and mythology. Muslims remove immorality, fear, crime, exploitation and replace them with divine morality, peace and education. The Quran declares:

"Lo! Allah commands you that you restore deposits to their owners, and if you judge between mankind that you judge justly. Lo! It is proper that Allah admonishes you. Lo! Allah is ever Hearer, Seer."
[Noble Quran 4:58]
"O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah's witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to Piety and fear Allah. And Allah is well acquainted with all that you do."
[Noble Quran 5:8]
"And of those whom We have created there is a nation who guides with the Truth and establishes justice with it."
[Noble Quran 7:181]
"Lo! Allah enjoins justice and kindness, and giving to kinsfolk, and forbids lewdness and abomination and wickedness. He exhorts you in order that you may take heed."
[Noble Quran 16:90]
"Those who, if We give them power in the land, establish prescribed prayers (SALAH) and pay the poor-due (ZAKAH) and enjoin right conduct and forbid evil. And with Allah rests the end (and decision) of (all) affairs."
[Noble Quran 22:41]


The unequivocal and emphatic answer is NO! The Quran declares:

""Let there be no compulsion (or coercion) in the religion (Islam). The right direction is distinctly clear from error."
[Noble Quran 2:256]

Here is a good study of the question of the spread of Islam by a Christian missionary, T. W. Arnold:

"...of any organized attempt to force the acceptance of Islam on the non-Muslim population, or of any systematic persecution intended to stamp out the Christian religion, we hear nothing. Had the caliphs chosen to adopt either course of action, they might have swept away Christianity as easily as Ferdinand and Isabella drove Islam out of Spain, or Louis XIV made Protestantism penal in France, or the Jews were kept out of England for 350 years. The Eastern Churches in Asia were entirely cut off from communion with the rest of Christiandom throughout which no one would have been found to lift a finger on their behalf, as heretical communions. So that the very survival of these Churches to the present day is a strong proof of the generally tolerant attitude of Mohammedan [sic] governments towards them" [8].

Islam does not teach, nor do Muslims desire, conversion of any people for fear, greed, marriage or any other form of coercion.

In conclusion, jihad in Islam is STRIVING IN THE WAY OF ALLAH by pen, tongue, hand, media and, if inevitable, with arms. However, jihad in Islam does not include striving for individual or national power, dominance, glory, wealth, prestige or pride.

Mafia juive sioniste de France : Strauss Khan est un mythomane, voleur, usurpateur

Strauss Kahn menace de " poursuivre judiciairement avec détermination ceux qui relaieraient des rumeurs malveillantes à son encontre "

Christian Basano déclare que "Monsieur Dominique Strauss Kahn est un voleur et un usurpateur !"

"Monsieur Dominique Strauss Kahn est un voleur et un usurpateur :

En sa qualité de ministre délégué à l'Industrie et au Commerce Extérieur dans le gouvernement d'Édith Cresson en 1991 :
- il a volé les brevets sur l’extinction des puits de pétrole en feu sans utilisation de la dynamite de Monsieur Joseph Ferrayé déposés à l’INPI les 11.04.91, 16.04.91 et
02.05.91. DSK est un spécialiste du vol de brevets.
- Il écrit à Monsieur Hammoud Abdallah AL RAQBAH, Ministre du pétrole Emirat du Koweït : « Monsieur le Ministre, J’ai été informé de l’intention de la Kuwait Petroleum Company de conclure un contrat avec le consortium français conduit par HORWELL en vue d’éteindre des puits en feu sur certains champs pétroliers de votre pays.
Le gouvernement français est très sensible à cette intention.
Il souhaite vous confirmer toute la confiance qu’il a dans les capacités de ce consortium à mener à bien une telle mission.
En espérant que les négociations en cours pourront aboutir aussi vite que possible, et en vous remerciant par avance pour votre aide, je vous prie de croire, Monsieur le Ministre, à l’expression de mes sentiments les meilleurs.. »

En sa qualité de ministre de l'Économie et des Finances dans le gouvernement de Lionel Jospin en 1999, il est intervenu pour déstabiliser Christian Basano en ordonnant sa radiation du Tableau de l’Ordre des Experts-Comptables d’une part, et d’autre part un contrôle fiscal !
En sa qualité de mari d’Anne Saint Claire (TF1), il a fait annuler le reportage sur l’extinction des puits de pétrole en feu au Koweït pré-enregistré dans l’émission Sans Aucun Doute du 12 mai 2000.
Extrait du livre Le Rapport OMERTA 2002, Sophie Coignard interroge Bernard NICOLAS (journaliste qui était présent sur le plateau de l'émission du 12 mai 2000), page 261 : - Vous avez déjà été victime de censure dans l'exercice de votre métier ?
Plusieurs fois. Dès lors qu'il était question de personnage politique de premier plan, les ennuis commençaient à TF1……
Une fois, j'avais fait un reportage sur une histoire politico-financière compliquée qui devait passer dans l'émission de Julien Courbet Tout est possible.
Dans la journée, une autopublicité annonce le thème de mon enquête. La direction de TF1 s'inquiète : cette affaire peut-elle être gênante pour Dominique Strauss-Khan ?…..J'étais interloqué : rien n'indiquait dans mon enquête que DSK fût mêlé en quoi que ce soit à cette affaire. Soit on se trompait en haut lieu, soit on en savait plus long que moi…..

Les téléspectateurs qui ont vu la bande-annonce n'ont jamais vu la suite…
Ils peuvent le voir sur : http://leweb2zero.tv/search/basano

Quel est le montant des rétro-commissions encaissées par DSK sur le détournements des sommes payées par le Koweït pour l’utilisation des brevets Ferraye ?

I leave it to others to see into the matter of Barakh Hussein Obama’s Zionicity or homosexuality, or to his Muslim father and Jewish mother, and I have no intention whatsoever to comment what indoctrinated people and addicts call “the news” (les actualités in French). I do not read “the news” or watch television, which to me is rather THE DISINFOS and BIG BROTHER, war propaganda by those who rule the world, the usurious bankers, big corporations and their King Satan! According to my experience and analysis, the rulers of the world do not include head of states, Presidents, Kings, Queens, Prime Ministers or even Dictators, but only and exclusively Banksters, that is, Bank or Money Gangsters, the modern Pharisees, the likes who have not hesitated to sentence even God to death, that is all spirituality and all morality, the way they did sentence one of His Sons, Jesus Christ, to imprisonment, torture, humiliation and death! There were no habeas corpus, no Geneva Convention and no Human Rights in those days. We only heard of these wonderful western inventions when we were kids, that is, donkeys being indoctrinated in the Citadels of Slavery by barbaric occupying armies of killers and brainwashers both at home and in the Imperial colonies. (Barakh means to bless in Hebrew. Barak means blessed in Arabic and Swahili. Obama means inflamed spear in Swahili. )

People who do not want to stop paying for a licence to watch DISINFOS and to allow BIG BROTHER to spy on them, who do not stop buying daily or weekly DISINFO papers are unable to think properly. Like some are glued to idols like Lady Madonna (soon!) or Sir Elton John (they both have something in common!), they are glued to and distracted by other idols like Barakh Hussein Obama or Nicolas Kemal Mustapha Sarkozy, but pay little attention to the real gods that rule the world, that is, the Banksters who obey the Commandments of a far greater god than God, that is, Baal, Beelzebub, Jehovah, Adonis, Moloch, Satan, Diabolos or whatever his (its) name! Modern Jews, Christians and Muslims are mostly worshippers of the Devil and have sworn allegiance first to Satan and second supposedly to God (AL-LAH THE GOD) at the same time.

It is well documented that all the Presidents of the USA (and for that matter the entire western world) have served Satan and nobody else. Some of them who tried to warn the world about this sad state of affairs or attempted to do something about it have either been shot at or murdered at the behest of the Banksters from the European Central Banks (Rothschild and Co), and the criminal private Jewish Federal Reserve Bank that has swindled the wealth of the normal American citizen as well as the National wealth. Whatever or whoever the President of the United Zionist States is, all the orders would still come from the Banksters. We can put a computerised robot at the White House as President of the Americans and of the whole world; it would make no difference at all!

Liar and mass murderer Collin Powell is prophesising a crisis in January 2009 (another Pearl Harbour!) after the supposed election (with Jewish stolen money and support) of his colt Hussein Obama. Why? Because the Banksters told him so, but he is not allowed to say more as he is just the petty mouth piece of the Devil! But, what difference does it make? Islamic Intelligence already pointed out in one of its articles how the US nuked Iraq during the first Gulf War with the approval of all the powerful nations of the world and their slave client states (like tiny winy Mauritius, the western paradise of vice!). Muslims and others should watch the first two Jewish (Zionist) atomic explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and see their devastating effects on both population and infrastructure and compare them with the recent devastations wrecked by the Satanic Forces of Kufr in Afghanistan and in Iraq! The Jewish (Larry Silverstein’s) Trade Centre buildings were not demolished by conventional demolition explosives, but more of a nuclear kind! So, who really cares if Hussein Obama is elected or not? It has already been proven that there has never been any free elections in the entire history of the USA (or in the whole of the western world!), and how is it that some still speak of the ‘election’ of that Jewish Zionist puppet? The world, especially the Arab and Muslim world, is facing devastation by modern weapons of mass destruction, and the extermination of its inhabitants on such a scale that the world will never ever recover from it! Those crimes are and will continue to be committed by the same Jewish/Zionist entities which claim a monopoly on those weapons and of their use on mainly Arabs and Muslims!

When THE GOD (AL-LAH) orders, commands the world to fast in the Holy Furqân or Qur’ân (whether it is man-made, man-inspired or God-revealed!) - Kutiba 'alaykum as-siyam (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:183), millions of Muslims (whole armies) gather and say YES and pretend to obey God’s Commandment TO FAST, while in real fact most of them feast and do not fast at all! But, when THE SAME GOD ORDERS them, COMMANDS them TO FIGHT, only a few listen and obey! How can GOD ever listen to their prayers when they refuse to listen to and obey God?
Kutiba `alaykum ul-Qitālu wa huwa kurhun lakum, Wa `asá 'an takrahū shay'āan, Wa huwa khayrun lakum, wa `asaá 'an tuĥibbū shay'āan, wa huwa sharrun lakum, Wa Allāhu ya`lamu, Wa 'antum lā ta`lamūna (Al-Baqarah: 216).

Holy Furqân (Qur’ân) Verse 2:177

Yusuf Ali:

It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces Towards east or West; but it is righteousness to believe in God and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; to spend of your substance, out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity; to fulfil the contracts which ye have made; and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the God-fearing.

So, my dear Brothers and Sisters, Hussein Obama is not the CRISIS, but Muslims’ disobedience is! Our weaknesses are. We are digging our own graves by aping the way of life of the Kuffar - democracy, secularism, laïcité, fashion, human rights, and so on! So, let us stop blaming the Jews, the Zionists, and the enemy from outside! We should, of course, point to their crimes, but only blame ourselves!

It is all in the above Verses, regarded holy by some. But, if we cannot or refuse to understand and listen to GOD Almighty, ALLAH subhanahu wa ta’ala, will we still not listen to the voice of experience and wisdom?

So, finally, Neo-Cohen CIA-MOSSAD Hussein Obama (Barak, Barack or Barakh!) is already fired, and is already past history for those who know how to use just a little bit of their brain! When Pakistan will be balkanised, it will not be because of the Jewish Zionist puppet, but because of the Banksters, and also because we would have let it happen! Let the world stop consuming Jewish/Zionist poisons (in all their forms) on a daily basis, and then, only then can we make a difference by escaping their mind control programming and genocidal plan. Jews pretend to like Hussein Obama (a scum like Rahm Emanuel), but do white people really like him? Hiroshima and Nagasaki are things of the past, but Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Arabia, Syria, Egypt, Algeria, Al Quds, and Iran (all Muslim countries) are the present targets of those destroyers of the world, joined by the Indian, Japanese, Russian and Chinese armies of WMD assassins! Will you heed?

AméricanoSionisme Collaborations: Comment 36 Juifs Membres De La Tribu Ont Façonné l'Election Présidentielle US De 2008

Candidate Obama is controlled by Rahm Emanuel, an Israeli son-of-a-terrorist Zionist extremist. Dreaming of change in America? Don't bank on it. (Courtesy Christopher Bollyn: www.bollyn.info)

Aux US, il n'y a pas que le LOBBY (AIPAC) qui influence la politique US. Le quotidien israélien Haaretz recense 36 juifs américains fortement impliqués des deux côtés dans la campagne présidentielle

Dans la course à la présidence entre John McCain et Barak Obama ce qui a dominé ce sont les problèmes de Wall Street et la capacité de chacun des présidentiables à pouvoir remplir la fonction présidentielle, la question d' Israël est restée dans l'ombre. Mais le vote juif reste un élément clé dans des états disputés, et, les juifs jouent divers rôles pour façonner les campagnes des candidats. Parmi eux 36 sont mentionnés dans une liste ci dessous. Cette liste est loin d'être exhaustive, par manque de place, un grand nombre de juifs qui ont joué une part active dans les campagnes n'y figurent pas - parmi eux le sénateur US du Maryland, Ben Cardin, substitut d'Obama, et le conseiller d'Obama, l'ex membre du Congrès pour la Californie, Mel Levine.

Il manque de même un certain nombre de juifs qui ont joué des rôles mineurs, mais méritent d'être mentionnés pour l'interêt qu'ils ont suscité - en particulier Sandra Froman, la premiere présidente juive de la National Rifle Association (2005-2007 un puissant lobby des armes ndlt) et membre du Comité de Direction de Sportmen for McCain, et Linda Lingle, premiere gouverneur juive d'Hawaii, qui avait auparavant défendu Sarah Palin ( co listière de McCain ndlt)

On doit noté que le nom le plus significatif c'est peut être celui d'un homme mort depuis 153 ans.

Ci dessous la liste par ordre alphabétique.

Sheldon Adelson ; Républicain, néoconservateur et un mega donateur, bien que des déboires financiers et des disputes internes aient altéré sa contribution à l'effort de campagne de McCain.

David Axelrod : chef stratégiste et conseiller en médias dans la campagne d'Obama, il a construit des soutiens de base via une campagne "virale" médiatique, les nouvelles technologies et en insistant sur le thème du changement.

Steven Bob et Sam Gordon : les deux rabbins du mouvement reformé du district de Chicago ont crée Rabbis for Obama, persuadant des centaines de collègues rabbiniques de soutenir publiquement le candidat. L'influence du groupe sur l'electorat juif est difficile a cerner.

Matt Brooks : directeur exécutif de la Coalition Républicaine Juive est tête de liste dans les médias pour répondre sur des problèmes juifs.

Max Broxmeyer : un homme d'affaires qui préside le Jewish Institute for National Sécurity Affairs, une boîte à penser conservatrice, il sert comme président dans la campagne de Mc Cain de la Jewish Advisory Coalition, et est membre du comité national de financement de la campagne du candidat.

Eric Cantor : membre du Congrés pour l'état de Virginie, il y est le seul Républicain juif, a émergé comme principal substitut de Mc Cain pour tenter d'obtenir les voix de la Floride et celles de son propre état.

Laurie David : activiste sur la question du réchauffement climatique qui a produit le film dans lequel Al Gore tient la vedette, "An Inconvenient Truth", ancienne épouse de Larry David créateur de " Seinfeld" et de "Curb Your enthousiasm", l'une des plus prestigieuses collectrices juives de fonds d'Hollywood.

Ira Forman : directeur exécutif du National Jewish Democratic Council, il est la contre partie de Matt Brook.

Barney Frank: membre Démocrate du Congres pour le Massachusett, est l'un des libéraux des plus visibles, et de franc parler au Congres. il est ouvertement gay et une cible fréquente des commentateurs pro McCain, particulièrement sur Fox News, où, parce qu'il tient la présidence du Comité sur les Services Financiers du Congres, on a dit qu'il portait une responsabilité première dans la crise des prêts immobiliers. Il a joué un rôle préponderant dans la négociation du paquet de subventions pour Wall Street.

Malcolm Hoenlien : en principe neutre en tant que directeur de la Conference of Présidents of Major American Jewish Organisations, il a invité Sarah Palin à s'exprimer lors d'une manifestation anti Ahmadinejad à l'ONU, puis a cédé aux pressions et s'est rétracté. On considère qu'il a aidé la campagne de Mc Cain dans le choix fait par les électeurs juifs indécis.

Cheryl Jacobs : il co préside la campagne de Mc Cain dans le County de Broward en Floride, rabbin conservateur, pendant longtemps Démocrate a soutenu la campgne d' Hillary Clinton puis est passé du côté de McCain.

Henri Kissinger : le New York Times a appelé l'ancien secrétaire d'état un " proche conseiller de l'extérieur" de la campagne de McCain. Le candidat l'appelle régulièrement pour avoir des conseils de politique étrangère et avant le débat des vices présidents il a organisé une cession de briefing de haut niveau avec Palin.

Ed Koch: l'ancien maire de New York City reste le symbole en or pour des juifs d'un certain âge. il a soutenu Bush en 2004, et Hillary Clinton pendant les primaires maintenant il soutient Obama.

William Kristol : comme éditeur du magazine hebdomadaire de Rupert Murdoch, le Weekly Standard, journaliste au New York Times et commentateur sur Fox News, c'est une voix néoconservatrice extrèmement influente.

Sherry Lansing : la premiere femme à diriger l'un des plus importants studios d'Hollywood (Paramount) elle est l'une des principales donatrices pour le candidat Démocrate et l'une des principales collectrices de fonds.

Ed Lasky : par le bais du site internet American Thinker, ses articles ont aidé à répandre la campagne de rumeurs largement diffusées sur la soit disant position anti Israël d'Obama.

Henri Lehman : immigrant de bavière, qui s'est installé en Alabama en 1844, à l'âge de 23 ans, et a crée H. Lehman, un établissement qui en acceptant du coton brut au lieu de paiements en liquide l'a amené plus tard au commerce du coton. En 1850, lui et ses frères Emanuel et Mayer ont crée Lehman's Brothers, qui est devenu l'une des premières et l'une des plus puissantes banques d'investissement à Wall Street. L'effondrement spéctaculaire de Lehman Brother's mi Septembre, la plus grande banqueroute de l'histoire de l'Amérique, a provoqué une panique financière mondiale, qui, plus que tout autre facteur, pourrait déterminer les résultats de l'élection présidentielle de 2008.

Joe Leberman Senateur du Connecticut, qui était le co listier d'Al Gore en 2000 pour le parti Démocrate; il est actuellement l'homme clé de McCain pour les électeurs juifs indécis.

Mike Moore : il a lancé Jewsvote.org, en utilisant des méthodes high tech pour contrer des sites web attaquant Obama. Le groupe soutien également The Great Schlep - une campagne pour que les petits enfants aillent rendre visite à leurs grands parents en Floride pour les persuader de voter pour Obama.

Eli Pariser: il est à la tête de MoveOn.org,un groupe liberal ayant un site internet qui a récolté d'importantes sommes pour les candidats démocrates.

Martin Peretz : l'éditeur de New Republic, il a écrit un article ayant eu de l'influence intitulé " Can Friends of Israël - and Jews - trust Obama . In a word Yes" ( les amis d'Israël - et les juifs - peuvent-ils faire confiance à Obama ? En un mot, Oui)

Dennis Prager : ll intervient dans des émissions sur la radio nationale, sans mâcher ses mots avec vivacité, a de l'influence, et malgré quelques reserves sur la campagne de McCain il a jeté tout son poids derrière lui.

Penny Pritzker : elle préside la campagne financière nationale d'Obama. Milliardaire, héritière d'une famille de juifs bien connus comme donateurs, et pionnière dans son soutien à Obama, elle a été critiqué pour son implication dans l'effondrement d'une banque liée aux hypothèques sur prêts immobiliers.

Ed Rendell: le gouverneuer de l'état clé de Pensylvannie, il est ancien dirigeant du Comité National Democrate, et un porte parole à la tête de la campagne Démocrate.

Denise Rich : ex épouse du milliardaire Marc Rich, mondaine, elle est une méga collectrice de fonds pour les Démocrates.

Robert Rubin: le conseiller principal sur l'économie d'Obama, a une connaissance incontestée du fonctionnement de Wall Street, et a été Secrétaire au Trésor dans l'Administration Clinton.

Dan Shapiro : un ancien responsable du National Security Council dans l'Administration Clinton, c'est un conseiller expérimenté sur la politique au Moyen Orient, et un coordinateur du vote juif dans la campagne d'Obama. On dit qu'il a co écrit le discours prononcé par Obama devant AIPAC ( le lobby pro Israël) dans lequel le candidat déclarait : " Jerusalem restera la capitale d'Israël et elle doit restée indivisée" - une déclaration qu'Obama a plus tard partiellement modifiée.

Sarah Silverman :" comédienne de choc" elle était porte parole dans une vidéo du Great Schlep ( voir Mi Moore ci dessus). Son monologue a provoqué un contre clip d'un vétéran comique Jackie Mason.

Alan Solow : juriste de Chicago actif au sein de la communauté juive et dans la Conference Of Présidents. Il est depuis une douzaine d'années supporter d'Obama.

Jon Stewart : animateur d'une émission satyrique de TV " The Daily Show" il est probablement devenu le plus écouté du vote libéral de la nation. Le New York Times a nommé l 'émission de Steward "une authentique force culturelle et politique".

Barbra Streisand : la chanteuse super star, une célébrité libérale juive et une mega collectrice de fonds. Elle avait soutenu Hillary Clnton lors des primaires et soutient Obama depuis la Convention Démocrate. Elle a aussi organsé une collecte de fonds à Hollywood en Septembre, incluant un dîner à 25 800 dollars l'assiette.

Robert Wexler : un substitut clé d'Obama, le membre du Congrès pour la Floride a mené une campagne intensive pour attirer vers Obama le riche électorat du Sunshine State et le détourner de McCain

Fred Zeidman : stratégiste juif de tête pour McCain, il est président du Holocaust Memorial Council des US, et un poids lourd parmi les Républicains juifs.

Bradley Burston et JJ Golberg - 17/10/08 www.haaretz.com

Information complémentaire (source www.haaretz.com )

Sur le groupe de rabins qui ont décidé de soutenir Barak Obama leur motivation, selon ce qu'ils ont écrit : " nous avons mis en jeu notre crédibilité en tant que rabins aimant Israël en endorsant publiquement le Sénateur Obama comme Président à cause des dénigrements et mensonges qui viennent de la partie adverse". ..." Jamais auparavant dans l'histoire des US un groupe de rabins d'une telle importance ne s'est crée pour soutenir activement un candidat comme président."

Sur le vote juif aux US : une étude annuelle a été publiée le mois dernier par le Américan Jewish Committee révélant que selon des estimations les electeurs juifs américains voteront à 57% pour Obama contre 30% pour McCain. Alors même qu'il y a 2% de juifs aux US, 4% des votes lors des élections présidentielles sont des votes d'électeurs américains juifs. Dans certains états, comme la Floride, le vote juif est considéré comme crutial. Plus de 40% des juifs américains participent financièrement aux campagnes présidentielles, ce qui représente 1/5 des donations pour les campagnes.

Islamic banking escapes fallout

ISLAMIC banking has largely escaped the fallout from the global financial crisis, thanks to rules that forbid the sort of risky business that is felling mainstream institutions.But experts say that because of its heavy reliance on property investments and private equity, the booming 1.0 trillion dollar global industry could be hit if the turmoil worsens and real assets start to crumble.
‘In the current financial turmoil, it is interesting to note that Islamic financing may have prevented a majority of the mess created by the conventional banking and financial institutions,’ Kuwait Finance House said in a report.

‘The outlook for Islamic financing is bright and will likely take the lead in terms of providing funding for major projects as the conventional banking system reevaluates its business model.’
The rules of Islamic banking and finance - which incorporate principles of sharia or Islamic law - read like a how-to guide on avoiding the kind of disaster that is currently gripping world markets.

Islamic law prohibits the payment and collection of interest, which is seen as a form of gambling, so highly complex instruments such as derivatives and other creative accounting practices are banned.

Transactions must be backed by real assets - not shady repackaged subprime mortgages - and because risk is shared between the bank and the depositor there is an incentive for the institutions to ensure the deal is sound.

Investors have a right to know how their funds are being used, and the sector is overseen by dedicated supervisory boards as well as the usual national regulatory authorities.
‘Islamic banking has, thus far, remained positive, despite the current challenging global financial environment,’ said Mr Zeti Akhtar Aziz, the central bank governor of Malaysia, which is Southeast Asia’s leader in Islamic banking.

Mr Zeti said this month that because of the slowing global economy, plans for Islamic ’sukuk’ bonds had been postponed or scrapped by companies including Kuwait’s Abyaar Real Estate Development and Malaysia’s Perisai Petroleum.

And Ms Jennifer Chang, a partner at Pricewaterhouse Coopers in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, said that given the extent of the global crisis, Islamic banks may suffer damage despite their strong position.

‘Islamic banks, especially in the Middle East, got heavily into private equity and real estate investments, and a lot of loans may be backed by properties. So if the property market goes down, there will be an impact,’ she said.

‘If a borrower is not able to pay then the bank will foreclose and the question is - can you sell the property in the market and at what value? These are issues which all banks can face.’
There have been calls for the conventional banking industry to take a leaf out of the book of Islamic finance, which also shuns investments in gaming, alcohol and pornography in favour of ethical investments.

Influential Sunni cleric Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi earlier this month called on Muslims to take advantage of the turmoil to build an economic system compatible with Islamic principles.
‘The collapse of the capitalist system based on usury and paper and not on goods traded on the market is proof that it is in crisis and shows that Islamic economic philosophy is holding up,’ said the Egyptian-born, Qatar-based cleric.

In recent years the sector has broken out of its niche and been embraced by mainstream banks. As well as basic bank deposits and investment accounts, it has expanded into areas including equity funds, bonds and Islamic hedge funds.

Mr Abhishek Kumar, a senior research analyst at Financial Insights, a company under market research and analysis firm International Data Corp (IDC), said recent events may further boost the sector.

‘More and more institutions will be interested in providing Islamic services to diversify their risk portfolio,’ he said, while warning that in the current financial storm there were no absolutely safe harbours.

‘We’re not really sure what the real extent of the impact is, and whether we’ve passed the worst of it or not, But the extent is not going to be as bad as in the mainstream sector,’ he said.

Shlomo Sand : Comment le peuple juif fut inventé : De la Bible au sionisme

« Je suis juif, sinon par la religion, que je ne pratique point, non plus que nulle autre, du moins par la naissance. Je n’en tire ni orgueil ni honte, étant, je l’espère, assez bon historien pour n’ignorer point que les prédispositions raciales sont un mythe et la notion même de race pure une absurdité particulièrement flagrante, lorsqu’elle prétend s’appliquer, comme ici, à ce qui fut, en réalité, un groupe de croyants, recrutés, jadis, dans tout le monde méditerranéen, turco-khazar et slave. » Pour Marc Bloch, qui se présentait ainsi dans les pages introductives de son dernier ouvrage « L’Etrange Défaite, » l’origine Khazar des juifs Ashkénazes était une évidence, mentionnée simplement en passant. Cette vérité historique fait pourtant l’objet d’un refoulement en Israël, car elle contredit les mythes fondateurs. Shlomo Sand, historien à l’université de Tel Aviv, vient de publier un ouvrage qui revisite ce passé oublié, et dont la résurgence éclaire d’une lumière tragique la réalité actuelle. Celle d’une terre où des hommes convertis au judaïsme mènent au nom de leur foi une guerre impitoyable aux lointains descendants du « peuple élu, » celui des bâtisseurs du Temple : les Palestiniens.

Par Jonathan Cook, The National, 6 octobre 2008

Le professeur d’histoire Shlomo Sand est le premier surpris par le succès remporté par son dernier ouvrage, présent durant 19 semaines sur la liste des best-sellers en Israël, en dépit du fait que ses thèses remettent en cause le plus grand tabou israélien.

M. Sand affirme que l’idée d’une nation juive - pour laquelle la nécessité de disposer d’un havre de paix a été utilisé depuis l’origine pour justifier la création de l’État d’Israël - est un mythe inventé il y a de cela un peu plus d’un siècle.

Spécialiste de l’histoire Européenne à l’université de Tel Aviv, le Dr Sand s’appuie sur des recherches archéologiques et historiques pour soutenir cette thèse ainsi que plusieurs autres tout aussi controversées.

En outre, il affirme que les Juifs n’ont jamais été exilés de la Terre Sainte, que la plupart des Juifs d’aujourd’hui n’ont pas de lien historique à la terre nommée Israël et que la seule solution politique au conflit avec les Palestiniens est d’abolir l’État juif.

Le succès de « Quand et comment le peuple juif a été inventé ? » pourrait se répéter dans le monde entier. Une édition française publiée le mois dernier a déjà donné lieu à trois tirages supplémentaires, tant les ventes ont été rapides.

Les traductions sont en cours dans une douzaine de langues, y compris en arabe et en anglais. M. Sand s’attend à une réaction musclée du lobby pro Israélien lorsque le livre sera publié aux États-Unis l’an prochain. En revanche, le public Israélien, peu favorable à sa thèse, s’est montré au moins curieux à son sujet. Tom Segev, l’un des grands journalistes du pays, a qualifié son livre de « fascinant et stimulant ».

Étonnamment, constate M. Sand, la plupart de ses collègues universitaires en Israël ont hésité à s’attaquer à ses arguments. Israël Bartal est une exception. Ce professeur d’histoire juive à l’Université hébraïque de Jérusalem a publié un article dans le quotidien israélien Haaretz, dans lequel il ne fait pourtant que peu d’efforts pour réfuter le Dr Sand. Paradoxalement, il consacre une grande partie de son article à la défense de sa profession, suggérant que les historiens israéliens ne sont pas aussi ignorants au sujet de l’invention de l’histoire juive que ne l’affirme le Dr Sand.

L’idée de ce livre lui est venue il y a de nombreuses années, se souvient le Dr Sand, mais il a attendu jusqu’à récemment pour commencer à y travailler. « Je ne peux pas prétendre faire preuve d’un courage particulier en publiant ce livre aujourd’hui », constate-t-il. « J’ai attendu d’obtenir un poste de professeur. Il y a un prix à payer dans les universités israéliennes pour avoir exprimé des opinions de ce genre. »

Le principal argument du Dr Sand est que, il y a de cela un peu plus d’un siècle, les Juifs eux-mêmes ne se pensaient en tant que juifs que parce qu’ils partageaient une religion commune. Au tournant du 20e siècle, note-t-il, les Juifs sionistes ont contesté cette idée et ont commencé à construire une histoire nationale en inventant l’idée que les Juifs existent en tant que peuple distinct de leur religion.

De même, l’idée sioniste moderne selon laquelle les Juifs doivent retourner d’exil vers la Terre promise a été totalement étrangère au judaïsme, précise-t-il.

« Le sionisme a transformé la représentation de Jérusalem. Avant, les lieux saints étaient considérés comme des lieux que l’on espérait, mais où il ne s’agissait pas de vivre. Depuis 2000 ans les Juifs étaient restés loin de Jérusalem, non pas parce qu’ils ne pouvaient pas y retourner, mais parce que leur religion leur interdisait de revenir jusqu’à ce que le Messie soit venu. »

La plus grande surprise au cours de ses recherches s’est produite lorsqu’il a commencé à étudier les preuves archéologiques de l’époque biblique.

« Je n’ai pas été élevé comme un sioniste, mais comme tous les autres Israéliens, je tenais pour acquis que les Juifs étaient un peuple qui vivait en Judée et en qui en avait été exilé par les Romains en 70 après Jésus-Christ.

« Mais lorsque j’ai commencé à chercher des éléments de preuve, j’ai découvert que les royaumes de David et Salomon étaient des légendes, » indique M. Sand. « Concernant l’exil, les choses sont semblables. En fait, vous ne pouvez pas expliquer la judéité sans l’exil. Mais lorsque j’ai commencé à rechercher des livres d’histoire décrivant les événements de cet exil, je n’ai pu en trouver aucun. Pas un seul. »

« C’est parce que les Romains n’ont pas exilé le peuple juif. En fait, les Juifs en Palestine étaient en leur écrasante majorité des paysans et tous les éléments de preuve indiquent qu’ils sont restés sur leurs terres. »

Il croit au contraire plus plausible une autre théorie : l’exil était un mythe promu par les premiers chrétiens pour recruter les Juifs à leur nouvelle foi. « Les chrétiens voulaient que les descendants de Juifs croient que leurs ancêtres avaient été exilés par une punition de Dieu ».

Mais s’il n’y a pas eu d’exil, comment se fait-il qu’un si grand nombre de Juifs ait été dispersés dans le monde entier avant que l’État moderne d’Israël commence à encourager leur « retour » ?

Le Dr Sand indique que durant les siècles qui ont précédé et suivi le début de l’ère chrétienne, le judaïsme était une religion prosélyte, tentant à tout prix de convertir. « Ceci est mentionné dans la littérature romaine de l’époque. »

Les Juifs se sont rendus dans d’autres régions, cherchant à convertir, en particulier au Yémen et parmi les tribus berbères de l’Afrique du Nord. Des siècles plus tard, le peuple du royaume Khazar, dans ce qui est aujourd’hui la Russie du Sud, s’est converti en masse au judaïsme, donnant naissance aux Juifs Ashkénazes d’Europe centrale et orientale.

Le Dr Sand insiste sur l’étrange état de déni dans lequel vivent la plupart des Israéliens. La découverte récente de la capitale du royaume Khazar, proche de la mer Caspienne a donné lieu à une importante couverture médiatique. YNet, le site Web de Yedioth Ahronoth, le plus populaire des journaux israélien, a publié un article intitulé : « Des archéologues russes retrouvent une capitale juive oubliée. » Et pourtant, aucun de ces articles, ajoute-t-il, n’a examiné l’importance de cette découverte en regard des conceptions habituelles de l’histoire juive.

L’autre question soulevée par le travail du Dr Sand, comme il le note lui-même est celle-ci : si la plupart des Juifs n’ont jamais quitté la Terre Sainte, que sont-ils devenus ?

« Ce n’est pas enseigné dans les écoles israéliennes, mais la plupart des premiers dirigeants sionistes, dont David Ben Gourion, qui le premier occupa le poste de Premier ministre, estimaient que les Palestiniens sont les descendants des premiers juifs de la région. Ils pensaient que les Juifs s’étaient par la suite converti à l’islam. »

Le Dr Sand attribue la réticence de ses collègues à discuter ses thèses à la reconnaissance implicite par de nombreux historiens que l’ensemble de l’édifice de « l’histoire juive » enseigné dans les universités israéliennes est construit comme un château de cartes.

Le problème avec l’enseignement de l’histoire en Israël, déclare le Dr Sand, remonte à une décision prise dans les années 1930 pour séparer l’histoire en deux disciplines : l’histoire générale et l’histoire juive. L’histoire juive a été considérée comme nécessitant un domaine d’étude distinct car l’expérience juive était considérée comme unique.

« Il n’y a pas de département de politique ou de sociologie juive dans les universités. Seule l’histoire est enseignée de cette façon, et cela a permis à des spécialistes de l’histoire juive de vivre dans un monde très conservateur et insulaire où ils se tiennent à l’écart de l’évolution moderne dans la recherche historique.

« J’ai été critiqué en Israël pour avoir écrit sur l’histoire juive alors ma spécialité est l’histoire de l’Europe. Mais un livre comme celui-ci requerrait un historien qui soit familier avec les concepts standard de la recherche historique utilisés par les universités dans le reste du monde. »

Israeli website SITE claimed that MI5 website Al Hesba is confirming that a false flag attack would help McCain

Israeli Mossad Chief May Be Killed in Jordan

Some reports announced the assassination of Israeli Mossad chief Meir Dagan in the Jordan’s capital Amman.

Based on a report by Terror Victims Information Base, the Israeli Mossad chief Meir Dagan has been killed in an explosion in the capital Amman, but there are some contradictory reports about the news, the Israeli FILKA website reported.According to the report, he was targeted when he was moving from a villa in the national park to the residence of Jordan’s king Malek Abdullah II for holding a private visit.Even if, Dagan has not been assassinated in the operation, there is a big failure for Mossad and Jordan and also a big victory for the attackers. How did the attackers find that Dagan was passing from the region or how did they were informed about the presence of Israeli Mossad chief Meir Dagan in Jordan?

End of Yisrael : CIA warned Syria and Lebanon about next israeli attack

General Michael Hayden, has told both the Syrian President and Lebanon’s Hezbollah Leadership that the next American president would be the ‘last one’ during secret meetings he held in Beirut this past week

CIA Director Michael Hayden sparks controversy by holding covert meetings with top Lebanese officials in a secret visit to the country.

Michael Hayden arrived in Beirut on Thursday in a visit that gained little but controversial media attention. Hayden arrived in the Lebanese capital for talks with top Lebanese officials on security cooperation against regional and international terror, reported As-Safir daily, a local media outlet. "Over the past few years prominent security officials, including the heads of Interpol and FBI, have visited the country on propaganda trips meant to enhance cooperation in security matters," claims Elnashra.com, a local website. "Hayden's trip, however, does not fall under the security and intelligence category," it continues. "According to informed sources Hayden's trip to the region is aimed at gathering the most possible amount of intelligence in the least possible amount of time, as most foreign intelligence services have an established presence in the county," the website adds. "Lebanon's geographic position between Syria and Israel is an important factor as the US seeks to defend the security of Israel at any cost."

Provocations racistes du gouvernment d'extreme droite israelien de France, emeutes en banlieues, guerre civile et etat d'urgence...

17 octobre 1961 : les associations réclament "vérité et justice"

Vingt-trois associations, partis et syndicats réclament à nouveau "vérité et justice" à l’occasion de la commémoration du massacre de plusieurs dizaines d’Algériens par les forces de l’ordre dans la nuit du 17 octobre 1961.

Elles exigent notamment "la reconnaissance officielle du crime commis par l’Etat français" et la liberté d’accès "effective" aux archives. Un rassemblement sera organisé vendredi à 18h30 au pont Saint-Michel à Paris, où une plaque officielle apposée en 2001 commémore l’événement.

Parmi les signataires figurent le MRAP (Mouvement contre le racisme et pour l’amitié entre les peuples), la Ligue des droits de l’Homme, le GISTI (Groupe d’information et de soutien des immigrés), le Parti communiste, les Verts, la Ligue communiste révolutionnaire et Lutte ouvrière.

"La recherche de la vérité s’impose pour cette période sombre de notre histoire comme elle s’est imposée pour la collaboration vichyste avec l’Allemagne nazie", souligne le communiqué, évoquant la loi du 15 juillet 2008, qui régit l’accès aux archives.

"Il y a des dispositions problématiques" dans la nouvelle loi "qui entravent un peu les recherches sur la période 1961-1962", déplore Gilles Manceron, historien et membre du comité central de la LDH, dans un entretien à l’Associated Press.

"Les délais ont été prolongés notamment pour les affaires judiciaires concernant l’OAS (Organisation armée secrète, NDLR), dans laquelle des hommes jeunes avaient été impliqués", affirme-t-il. La loi spécifie en effet qu’un délai de 75 ans s’applique pour les documents relatifs aux enquêtes réalisées par la police judiciaire, ou un délai de 25 ans à compter de la date du décès de l’intéressé.

"C’est une manière, à mon avis, de faire en sorte qu’on ne soulève pas certains actes politiques", affirme M. Manceron, ajoutant qu’"il y a des choses à éclaircir qui concernent les responsabilités particulières de Maurice Papon (alors préfet de police de Paris, NDLR) dans cette période". Henri Pouillot, chargé des questions de mémoire au sein du MRAP, regrette que "le 17 octobre 1961 n’ait toujours pas été reconnu comme crime d’Etat et condamné officiellement".

Samia Messaoudi, cofondatrice de l’association Au nom de la Mémoire, dont le père a participé à la manifestation du 17-Octobre, souligne "l’importance de célébrer de manière collective" cette date, dans le cadre d’un "travail de légitimité" visant à "la reconnaissance officielle du bilan et du responsable de ce massacre".

De son côté, l’association 93 au coeur de la République exige elle aussi dans un communiqué "l’ouverture de l’accessibilité aux Archives nationales", ainsi que "l’inscription dans les manuels d’histoire de cette tragédie".

Le 17 octobre 1961, le FLN (Front de libération nationale) algérien avait organisé une manifestation pacifique à laquelle 30.000 personnes participèrent pour protester contre le couvre-feu imposé aux Français musulmans d’Algérie.

La répression sera violente, les forces de l’ordre parisiennes ouvrant le feu sur des manifestants sans armes. Plus de 10.000 Algériens seront arrêtés, des dizaines d’autres étant portés disparus ou encore expulsés. Dans les jours suivants, on verra la Seine charrier des cadavres.

La préfecture de police n’a recensé officiellement que deux morts au lendemain de la manifestation. Le bilan définitif exact n’a pas été établi, mais il serait compris entre plusieurs dizaines et plusieurs centaines, selon les estimations. L’historien Jean-Luc Einaudi, auteur de "Octobre 1961, un massacre à Paris" (2001) estime qu’il y a eu au moins 200 morts lors des journées des 17 et 18 octobre et plusieurs centaines durant les mois de septembre et d’octobre.

Kabul Is Now Surrounded By The Taliban

Reversal of fortune leaves Kabul under Taliban's thumb

KABUL — At a gas station on the outskirts of Kabul, lounging in the shade of a transport truck, Mohammed Raza describes how he escaped death.

Last month, a U.S. contractor promised him $10,000 if he'd drive a truck full of diesel from Kabul to Kandahar, offering seven times more than he could earn by transporting his usual shipments of sugar. But the Taliban forbid drivers from carrying fuel to the foreign troops, he said, and the insurgents run checkpoints on the road between Afghanistan's two largest cities. He rejected the offer. One of his friends took the assignment, he said, and the Taliban cut off his head.

"Many drivers now are selling their lives," the 25-year-old said, nervously twisting the fringe of his beard.

The Taliban are isolating Afghanistan's capital city from the rest of the country, choking off important supply routes and imposing their rules on the provinces near Kabul. Interviews suggest that the Taliban have gained control along three of the four major highways into the city, and some believe it's a matter of time before they regulate all traffic around the capital.

That marks a shocking reversal of the insurgents' fortunes. Taliban were fleeing along the highways out of Kabul less than seven years ago, abandoning their government offices, dying under a hail of U.S. air strikes as they scrambled to flee. Now the Taliban and their allied militias are creeping back up the same roads, quietly showing their presence on the outskirts of the city.

Kabul itself is heavily guarded, and nobody expects a frontal assault.

But the insurgents don't need to attack the capital; by hobbling the government's ability to reach its own citizens beyond the city gates, security analysts say, the Taliban make the rulers of Kabul irrelevant in broad swaths of the country. It's more than a propaganda victory; the insurgents are grabbing the same political high ground the Taliban exploited during their previous sweep to power in the 1990s, by positioning themselves as the best enforcers of security in rural Afghanistan.

The roadblocks have also started to pinch the foreign troops. Military bases find themselves running short of fuel and other supplies.

Commercial aircraft were repeatedly warned this summer that they would not be able to purchase fuel at Kandahar Air Field, and the airfield shut down some facilities to reduce electricity needs during the peak fighting season. The insurgents have also targeted aid shipments, with 800 tonnes of food stolen from World Food Program truck convoys in the first half of the year – only about 0.5 per cent of the WFP's average food deliveries in Afghanistan for a six-month period – but still enough to feed 80,000 people for a month during a food crisis in which the WFP says it's facing a vast shortfall in supplies.

Figures obtained from Afghanistan's Interior Ministry show the government's count of major attacks on supply trucks around Kabul has increased sharply this year, with 80 incidents in the first six months as compared with 45 over the entire previous year. Analysts say those numbers are conservative, but even so, the official statistics illustrate how strikes on supply routes are growing faster than the general rise in violence.

People who work for the government, or have any association with the foreign presence, now travel covertly on the main highways of southern, central, and eastern Afghanistan. They disguise themselves as rural peasants, carry no identification cards, and erase numbers from their cellphones that might connect them with the government.

Some devise even more elaborate strategies for dealing with Taliban checkpoints, arranging for friends to impersonate religious figures who can vouch for them if they're stopped by the insurgents.

Truck drivers often leave a rear door open at the back of their tractor-trailers, securing their cargo with a spider web of ropes, so that Taliban can easily look inside and check the shipment for anything forbidden by the insurgency. The Taliban even scrutinize the drivers' customs paperwork to certify that the goods are destined for non-military consumers.

The problem of Taliban influence on the southern highways grew especially acute this summer, said Brigadier-General Richard Blanchette, NATO's chief spokesman in Afghanistan.

"There was this saying, that the insurgency begins where the highway finishes," Gen. Blanchette said, referring to a popular aphorism among the foreign troops. "Well, for a while it was almost the opposite."

The Taliban make a point of allowing ordinary Afghans to drive the roads without harming them, but Gen. Blanchette said their actions are starting to affect the average traveller.

"We had the infrastructure attacked – which was a first, you know, the insurgents had not destroyed bridges before," he said. "The farmers couldn't bring their products any more, and it choked the economy."

He added that NATO has recently successfully countered the Taliban strategy by devoting more aircraft, surveillance, and Afghan troops to patrolling the highways south of Kabul. The result has been a drop in insurgent attacks on those routes in the final weeks of summer, he said, although he acknowledged that the slowing violence may represent a seasonal trend; attacks always decrease as winter approaches. He added that patrolling the highways has been difficult for Afghan troops because they're spread thin.

Not only do the Afghan security forces lack numbers, but they're also corrupt and even colluding with the insurgents, said Colonel Asadullah Abed, chief of the criminal investigation division for the 10 central provinces around Kabul.

The 40-year-old policeman says he's no friend of the Taliban, and has a sheaf of threatening letters from the insurgents to make his point.

But he worries that his colleagues at small posts outside the city are not so devoted to the government's cause.

Each of the four major gateways into Kabul are guarded by Afghan police, soldiers, and intelligence officers, Col. Abed said, but the insurgents easily bribe their way through. People with loyalties to the insurgents have also infiltrated the ranks of Afghanistan's security establishment, he added: "They're not working honestly."

Col. Abed paused to look at a reporter's military-issued accreditation card, and noted that the small piece of identification would be a death warrant on most highways outside the city. "You're a foreigner travelling with this," he said, pointing to the ID badge, "and you can travel the Shomali road okay, but any other road they will capture you after one kilometre."

The colonel may have been exaggerating for effect, but it's widely accepted that the road to the Shomali plains now serves as the only genuinely safe passage out of the capital. Even foreigners drive the road for fun, roaring up the paved highway that crests the ridges north of Kabul and enjoying a picnic by the river, or meandering up the scenic Panjshir valley.

But at a bus stop on the dusty edge of the Shomali plains, drivers and ticket-sellers say even this road is getting worse.

"Only one road remains now, this road, but in a year you won't be able to travel even this one," said Nafis Khan, 36, a ticket vendor.

"The Taliban are not the problem," he added. "When people saw the bad behaviour of the foreigners and government, the Taliban stood up to protect them. Day by day, their power increases."

Still, insurgent leaders admit they still don't have a choke hold on the city. The Globe and Mail sent a researcher to the mountains of Nirkh district in Wardak province, southwest of Kabul, where a large group of Taliban often gather to raid the main highway between Kabul and Kandahar.

Wearing a black turban, surrounded by heavily armed men, the Taliban commander bemoaned the fact that his power is vastly greater on the Kandahar road than the Shomali road. He claimed that his men ambush vehicles three times a week on the Kandahar road, but such brazen acts are not possible on the northern road.

"Only the Shomali road is safer than others, because the influence of Taliban is less," he said, in a video-recorded interview. "Those are Farsi-speaking people on the Shomali road, so for Taliban it's difficult to enter that area, and that road is the only one secure for government and their convoys."

The Taliban's struggle to gain control of Shomali road reflects the insurgents' broader effort to get a foothold outside of their traditional ethnic group. In recent years, most of the Taliban's support has come from Pashtun tribesmen, and during the previous Taliban government the Pashtun-dominated regime fought bitter wars against the Farsi-speaking Tajik and Uzbek warlords of the north.

One of the ways the Taliban are trying to broaden their appeal is by proving themselves better than the government at providing road security. It's a propaganda move aimed at people such as Del Aga, 40, a bus driver, who says the police have robbed him more often than bandits or insurgents. He usually doesn't slow his bus for men with guns because he's afraid of criminals, he said, but he feels obligated to stop for uniformed police with marked police trucks. "I stop for the police, and they rob my passengers," he said.

Even when the police aren't directly implicated in the shakedowns, Afghans often blame the government forces for failing to stop them.

Nasar Ahmed, 38, said his bus was ransacked by bandits only a short distance from a police checkpoint, leaving him with the impression that the local authorities were either neglecting their duties or helping the robbers. He has been working as a bus driver for 14 years, mostly on the road between Kandahar and Kabul, and he says security on the highways has reached its worst point since the civil wars of the early 1990s.

The major exceptions to the worsening trend are the zones where the Taliban have completely seized control, Mr. Ahmed said. Buses frequently had trouble with a large band of thieves in Nimroz province until the Taliban drove them away, he said.

"The areas that belong to the government are less secure than the Taliban areas," said the big-bearded driver.

In areas of Wardak province described by locals as dominated by the insurgents, only 30 kilometres' drive away from Kabul, shopkeepers told The Globe and Mail's researcher that security has largely improved since the Taliban took over.

"Our security is better, we don't have any problem with Taliban, and the government is far from us," said the keeper of a mud-walled shop selling dry goods and hardware.

That's the impression that Taliban say they're trying to create. An insurgent commander emphasized that the Taliban do not demand road tolls and refrain from attacking vehicles not associated with the government or the International Security Assistance Force.

"Local traders' vehicles can go and transport every kind of thing that they need to carry," the commander said, surrounded by fighters on a riverbank about two kilometres from the government centre for Wardak province. "And the tankers or vehicles that belongs to ISAF or government, we shoot them and burn them."

Despite the insurgents' claims of bringing security for ordinary people, however, the highways in Taliban territory are still rife with stories of banditry. Mohammed Amin, 52, a shopkeeper, said he was driving on a winter morning toward Kabul from Kandahar in a convoy of five buses when they were stopped by a roadblock. Criminals searched all the buses, he said, taking money, cellphones, and other valuables from the passengers. A man sitting beside him lost all the money he'd saved from working six months in Pakistani coal mines.

"The thieves did their work very slowly and with confidence, because they weren't afraid of anybody," Mr. Amin said.

Taliban checkpoints also terrify many travellers, if they have the slightest connection with the government or reason to worry that the insurgents might get suspicious.

A man who identified himself only as "Matin" said he was riding a bus to Kabul from Kandahar with friends when the vehicle was pulled over by insurgents.

"My friend looked like a military guy, because he was tall and clean-shaven," the young man said. "The Taliban pulled me aside with my friend. When the bus was driving away, I slipped back into the crowd and got inside the vehicle. My friend was captured." His friend worked for a logistics company and the Taliban eventually released him, after local notables petitioned for his freedom.

Many others aren't so fortunate. Taliban have executed so many suspected collaborators on the highways this year that local truck drivers held a protest at the Spin Boldak border crossing in Kandahar in late June, refusing to work until the government gave them better security on the roads.

Mohammed Naim, 40, a ticket seller for a bus company in Kabul, said the situation has become so well known that he doesn't bother warning most passengers about the likelihood of hitting a Taliban checkpoint.
