As Predicted, Third Way Surges to Fore in Middle East

Middle East Violence a Precursor for US-Based Internal Combustion
a staff report entitled, "Islam Yearns for a Third Way, US
Intel Will Provide," predicted "a third way for Islam
that will allow Western-style central banking and finance."
Right on schedule,
just as if scripted, Libya has erupted once again as "moderate
Islam" battles against "radicals."
It could not
be clearer or, of course, more illogical. To make the script work,
Western Intel planners conjuring this nonsense have to gloss over
just how these "radical Islamic" entities got into Libya
in the first place.
These al Qaeda
types and "extremists" reportedly infiltrated Libya and
then were then supported until Muammar Gaddafi's reign fell. Now
they are expendable. But expendable or not, they are the same types
of individuals apparently employed under Osama bin Laden
the same types now being insinuated into Syria.
We're not supposed
to ask why al Qaeda-types are serving as the shock troops for these
so-called youth revolutions. Of course, we already know why.
is a chisel that US Intel uses to reshape the world. It's not idle
conjecture, at this point. Either one agrees with this scenario
or one has to explain why Islamic fundamentalists have now fought
with the support of NATO in Libya and Syria.
article made the following points:
So this is
what's really going on. The Middle East has been destabilized by
the US State Department's AYM youth movement. Now that the Muslim
Brotherhood is empowered, a surge of violence may give way to a
"third way" regarding Islamic society, polity and economics.
right to believe they are being manipulated. What they don't understand
perhaps is that the "third way" that many long for has
already been prepared for them and it, too, is under Western control.
reportage from an article in today's UK Telegraph:
crowds drive out Islamist militants ... Cheering crowds swept through
the Libyan city of Benghazi clearing Islamist militias from their
bases after protests triggered by the killing of the American ambassador,
Up to four
people were reported dead in clashes which broke out when the last
and biggest militia was attacked in the early hours of Saturday
morning. Earlier, members of Ansar al-Sharia, the militant group
accused of responsibility for Mr Stevens' death, were forced out
of their strongholds in the city ...
in Benghazi on Friday evening, estimated at 30,000-strong, featured
pro-American slogans and banners, unusual for demonstrations in
Arab countries. Though many protesters said they were attending
"for Benghazi, not for America", some held up placards
commemorating Mr Stevens, who lived in Benghazi last year while
co-ordinating American support for the revolution. "We demand
justice for Stevens," said one, and "Libya lost a friend"
with Ansar al-Sharia, some protesters moved further out of town
and took on a base said to belong to the Rafallah al-Sehati Battalion,
a Salafist group that is notionally allied to the government and
in particular to the February 17 Brigade, a less militant outfit
whose leaders are very powerful in the new Libya.
Washington have now largely dropped the version of events initially
put out, that his killing and that of three other American staff
was the result of a protest against the film that got out of hand.
said there were no protests before the consulate building was attacked
on three sides by scores of men waving black Islamic flags and carrying
rocket-propelled grenade launchers and automatic rifles.
military leaders have been meeting members of the interim government
and the newly elected prime minister, Mustafa Abushagur, in Tripoli
this week to discuss how to deal with Ansar al-Sharia, or at least
the members said to have been involved in the consulate attack.
provides us with a number of clues as to what is really going on
mentions the "Rafallah al-Sehati Battalion," a Salafist
group. Salafism, as we mentioned yesterday, is a variant of Saudi-Arabian
Wahhabism. The West, and more specifically the US, has been sponsoring
the Saud family and Wahhabism for decades.
It is to the
advantage of the West to sponsor Islamic fundamentalism because
fundamentalists can be used to destabilize Middle Eastern and upper
African regimes. Then historical dialecticism can be brought to
bear. Fundamentalists can be attacked by "moderates"
and Western style regulatory democracy can suddenly emerge. This
is surely the Hegelian model being applied to Libya today.
Libya, of course,
is in ruins. Sectarianism and violence are everywhere. Gaddafi may
have ruled like a dictator but for many under his reign life was
good. The basic necessity of water had finally become accessible.
Houses and cars were affordable and so long as you didn't challenge
the government directly, you could start a business, survive and
human beings generally don't like to live in circumstances where
they must moderate their views out of fear. But certainly Gaddafi's
Libya was likely superior to today's faction-ridden, partially destroyed
and hate-infested country.
this because of what the Telegraph relates: "... Protesters
held up placards commemorating Mr Stevens, who lived in Benghazi
last year while coordinating American support for the revolution.
'We demand justice for Stevens,' said one, and 'Libya lost a friend'
We are supposed
to believe these are the genuine sympathies of the Libyan people?
We are supposed to believe that after being bombed and shot, after
seeing the country invaded by ragtag mobs of "fundamentalists,"
that Libyans support those who supervised the damage?
me as more directed history, just as I noted yesterday in my RT
interview. You can see that interview here:

The US in particular,
through its Teddy Roosevelt "big stick" policy, has unapologetically
meddled in other countries' affairs around the world. In my view,
the current situation in Libya is part of the same impulse. Nothing
much has changed from that point of view.
But in another
way a lot has changed, thanks to what we call the Internet Reformation.
For instance, Western Intel seems to have had in mind creating the
appearance of a religious war by planting an anti-Muslim film in
the Middle East.
It was the
appearance of this hateful film that was the proximate cause of
the violence in Libya and elsewhere. Only it was not.
and the alternative media thoroughly debunked the film and its infiltration
into the Middle East. What was obviously a Western Intel trick failed.
And the administration was left scrambling to pro-offer a secondary
In fact, it
is far more likely that all of this, including the placards, was
orchestrated. The manipulation knows no boundaries and the same
weary historical tricks are being applied over and over again.
They are not
working nearly so well these days. As a result of the current manipulations,
the Middle East is on fire, probably above and beyond what was expected.
This is because Western manipulations are well known by now and
people are furious.
They want to
be left alone. Can you blame them?
era of the "big stick" policy is over and those orchestrating
these policies just haven't internalized that fact. Or perhaps they
don't know what else to do.
realization hasn't struck them that the same realizations that have
struck the Middle East regarding directed history are also infiltrating
the West. And that is an even bigger danger to them anyway.
