Venstrefløjen’s Arabiske Forår

Diverse — Drokles on February 14, 2012 at 5:43 pm

Geoffry Cain har i Sappho en glimrende beskrivelse af den arabiske muslimske mentalitet, som vi ser den udfoldes sig i deres forår

De er altid krænket. De er mazlum, forurettede, og det er noget, de er fra barnsben af.

Det er de også blevet efter den lille foldboldmassakre i Port Said, hvor 74 fans for nylig blev trampet eller slået eller stukket ihjel. De overlevende følte sig krænket. Hvorfor?

Fordi det slet ikke var de involverede parters skyld. De var blevet ofre for et komplot brygget sammen af den ancien régime for at bringe det arabiske forårs fodboldglade tilhængere i miskredit.

Og bag dette djævelske rænkespil anede man - som sædvanligt - en fremmed hånd. Israel eller USA. Hvem ellers.

Denne reaktion ville jeg kalde en arabisk lovmæssighed på samme som krig er en menneskelig lovmæssighed. De myrder hinanden og giver andre skylden.

Deres ære er krænket. Og samtidigt – og her kommer det bedste – samtidigt er de dybt fornærmet på en verden, der ikke værdsætter deres menneskelige værdighed - hvad man sådan set godt kan forstå i betragtning af regionens tendens til både mord og selvmedlidenhed.

Det minder om manden, der myrder sin far og mor og derefter kræver medlidenhed, fordi han er forældreløs. Morderen ser sig selv som det egentlige offer.

Et eksempel på den logik kunne man forleden læse i BBC’s sorgløse rapportering

All of the fighters we met were Sunni. Perhaps that does not matter.

The commander near Qusayr told me they were fighting for all of Syria’s religions and sects: Christian, Muslim, Alawite, Sunni, Druze, Shia.

“We are experiencing freedom for the first time,” said Maj Ahmad Yaya.

But his next words left no doubt, either, that for many, this is a religious - and Islamic - struggle against the secular Baath regime.

“For the first time,” he went on, “we are able to proclaim the word of God throughout this land.”

(…)

Afterwards, one of the FSA fighters showed me a video he had filmed in December.

They had ambushed a convoy of armoured vehicles. Eight of the security forces were killed, 11 captured. The video showed the prisoners, in camouflage uniform, lined up facing a wall.

Some were still bleeding after the battle. Their arms were raised.

One turned to the camera, looking petrified. The man who’d taken the pictures said that despite their army uniforms, their ID cards showed they were Shabiha (or ghosts) - the hated government paramilitary force.

“We killed them,” he told me.

“You killed your prisoners?”

“Yes, of course. They were executed later. That is the policy for Shabiha.”

These were Sunni Shabiha, he added; the only Alawite had escaped.

I checked with an officer. While soldiers were released, he said, members of the Shabiha were “executed” after a hearing before a panel of FSA military judges.

To explain, they showed me a film taken from the mobile phone of a captured Shabiha. Prisoners lay face down on the ground, hands tied behind their backs. One-by-one, their heads were cut off.

The man wielding the knife said, tauntingly, to the first: “This is for freedom.”

As his victim’s neck opened, he went on: “This is for our martyrs. And this is for collaborating with Israel.

Så hvad sker der så når modstanderen engang er nedkæmpet? Elder Of Ziyon giver det logiske svar

Lt. Hassan will continue to fight the Syrian army and spread the messages of the Free Syria Army over the Internet. During our conversation there is one message he felt is important to him to clarify in no uncertain terms: “Zionists, do not think that after the government is replaced we would give up the sword. The Golan Heights and the Zionist state is still defined as ‘Dar al Harb’ (Muslim area of ??war). After we release Syria from the corrupt regime, we will be stronger to face the Jews.”

Måske forstår man alligevel venstrefløjens store optimisme vedrørende det Arabiske Forår.
