I propose that all the terrorism in the west are Israeli false flags regardless of who is blamed.  This is because they only have the result of popular hatred of Muslims in the west and have no useful results for any cause in the Middle East where militant groups are seeking power.  Some of them might be by random people who are influenced by violence but by and large they serve the interest of demonizing Islam in the west which is Israel’s agenda.

China is well aware that West is demonizing Islam as a backward civilization and China and Asian civilization is perched to overtake the West in the interim conflict. The preoccupation of West with a conflict with Islam is an opportunity for China to engage with Islam positively. This is not clear enough to America. This contest cannot be decided by temporary military superiority. Islam is not a threat to the West but Israeli approach to Islam is bound to turn it into a serious threat to Western Civilization in the longer term. America needs to return to the American creed of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington and change engagement with the Middle East substantially. It’s too bad that American education does not focus on the creed of Washington of the fraternity of the human republic as its political ideal of hegemon.

China speaks of the century of humiliation from which it has returned with great success; the century of humiliation for Islam is from 1918 when Ottoman Empire fell. Israel’s regulation of demonization of Islam naturally leads to Islam as an extremely potent Empire to resuscitate with great benefit to China as a buffer to the West. China would be retarded not to revive Islam. America is at a disadvantage because America’s eyes and ears are clogged by Israel.

I believe that 9/11 was an Israeli false flag and there were no 19 hijackers at all.  One can argue about the details fruitlessly.  My contention is that there were two goals for this: one is the capture of American foreign policy by neoconservatives of Project for a New American Century who are Israeli partisans who have had plans for regime changes in Muslim countries since 1991 according to General Wesley Clark and the second is to demonize Islam and Muslims in the west to bring Western public opinion in line with the intense hostility that Israel has developed from wars from 1948, 1967, 1973.  Jewish academics like Bernard Lewis who are “Orientalists” according to Edward Said have an army writing books on Islam and Jihad and Counterterrorism and so on since.

This intellectual war on Islamic civilization spills over to demonizing Islam as a valid intellectual enterprise in America and Europe that has negative domestic consequences like increase in right wing racist populism and strife and fragmentation in domestic culture.  There is now a rise across West of far right parties who threaten to destabilize domestic politics.  The hegemonic rival of America, China does not have such a hostile intellectual anti-Islamic movement and can engage with Muslim countries without problem.  This fact alone assures that it will not be possible for the West to impose an order in the Middle East by military force alone.  China will then dominate the economic reconstruction of the Middle East and thereby be the great power with their Road and Belt trade route economic development and Russian military umbrella.  Hostility of the west toward Muslims will alienate Islam further and the fruits of a revival of Islam which is sure to occur — because the idea of savage terrorists populating these countries is misleading and regressive beyond the British colonial times — will end with Western expulsion from the economic growth of the region which is likely to mirror emerging economies elsewhere such as Latin America.

 

 

Very schematic view: Christianity is upheld as a religion that improves upon Judaism by Thomas Jefferson by universalism in benevolence and love thy enemy.  Christian mythology of the vertical space between Heaven and Hell is meant to be an internal state of man fallen from the Kingdom of Heaven.  The way in which American nationalism has develope with Christianity is to slowly abandon the universal benevolence and horizontalize the axis of Heaven and Hell and Good and Evil so that we become good and they become evil.  This rotation of the Heaven-Hell and Good-Evil axis allows America to become a military power with us being good and they being evil in various degrees.  This rotation of course completely destroys Christianity however it is done.

Jefferson’s Bible is the first version of the Bible that after reading it makes sense that Christian morality has some sense to it. The Old Testament and New Testament full versions areyo excruciatinly obfuscatory and does not give me any sense of the sensibility of the morality. What is visible in this Bible is a sort of vertical space between Kingdom of Heaven to the pits of Hell. This vertical space between Heaven and Hell is very interesting. Presumably this vertical space of action is the driver of morality. Now presumably the Crusades happen by making this horizontal — so this mythological fight of good and evil that takes place within man is externalized in a pleasing manner where we are good and they are evil. Of course this is precisely not really Christianity and is pretty anti-Christian if one goes by Jefferson’s Bible. Christianity would be that every human being in the world lie in this vertical space between Heaven and Hell. So then the anti-Muslim propaganda by Zionists primarily to make Americans consider we are heavenly and they are hellish thereby destroying Christianity in the process. Vicious.

Jesus Christ was a genius.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you, and persecute you.

This is marvelous stuff. Of course this is beyond the capacity for most normal people to achieve, but the idea is pure genius.

I don’t think there has ever been a Christian nation in the history of the world. Such a nation would be almost beyond human capacity.

  1.  Their precepts related chiefly to ourselves, and the government of those passions which, unrestrained, would disturb our tranquility of mind.  In this branch of philosophy they were really great.

2.  In developing our duty to others, they were short and defective.  They embraced indeed the circles of kindred and friends, and inculcated patriotism, or the love of country in the aggregate, as a primary obligation: toward our neighbors and countrymen they taught justice, but scarcely viewed them as within the circle of benevolence.  Still less have they inculcated peace, charity and love to our fellow men, or embraced with benevolence the whole family of mankind.

In my last term at Princeton I remember writing a paper on Erich Auerbach’s Mimesis. I had written that the depression and decay of the Western art that was portrayed in Auerbach was belied by the emergence of the energy and vitality of Magical realism in Salman Rushdie and Garcia Marquez. I don’t remember the details but the idea was that English literature had its redemptive capability from these writers from colonial domains. This is an appropriate time to recognize that the disruption of Western politics and a turn toward far right is probably a temporary reaction before synthesis. I have never considered great geniuses like Shakespeare, Machiavelli or Franz Kafka to belong to any nation although they are products also of their local conditions. But it is possible that this is simply a result of being plunged deep into western intellectual culture. Yet there is something to be said about Machiavelli’s observations about human nature extends to the Muslim people without much change. It is far more believable that Iran’s political elite follow Machiavelli faithfully than Donald Trump does. Trump’s populism and chaos in administration just shows that he is a populist demagogue and in terms of what is best for the state of America completely ineffective in garnering the respect of his staff or of the international leaders, and could be acting only as an effective diversion from the machinations of powers behind the throne — it could be that the deep state is deepening in Trump’s administration while he is unable to work with anyone and is distracted by tweeting completely trivial nonsense and working toward his future wealth. It is more likely that Iran’s clerics are following Machiavelli’s advice more faithfully. I don’t know if this is the case, but it’s plausible. Going back to Erich Auerbach’s Mimesis, Art as representation of reality, this moment seems to be a time of monumental global shifts and I’ve been out of the art loop but I would think that the best art of this period would be grand world scale art. This expansiveness only became visible to me recently where it is clear that the span from San Francisco to Beijing is the reality of a single structure in flux, the entire human race is active all at once. China’s rise and America’s gyrations and Europe’s right shift all taking place on a gigantic canvas.

What I see in the rise of the far right in Europe and America is the destruction of Western Civilization, an overreaction of people who had failed to carry the tradition of deep western civilization because of the excesses of capitalism and now blame Islam and immigrants and Jews and look at the surface characteristics, geneology and ethnicity as the carriers of that civilization. This far right does not carry western civilization with them but only superficial elements: the color of skin, a manner of dressing, but not the soul and intellect of those who could make western civilization great. These are the GHOSTS of a FALLEN Western civilization.

What are the root causes of the decline of Western Civilization? Some point to non-white races and immigrants and Jews. I think the issue is the lack of concern for preserving the intellectual tradition and focus on capitalism. The first explanation is frankly quite pathetic. No amount of purifying the race will bring back the spirit of optimism and intellectual daring of Europe’s Enlightenment or Renaissance periods without a collective commitment to retain that culture. Repressing minorities is only going to make the culture more closed, more oppressive, and western civilization will be nearer to its coffin.
