Two weeks and one day ago, I commented in my weekly "News and Views from the Nefarium"(March 1, 2012), about a planned global conference in Austria to discuss the theme of the restoration of a universal Muslim Caliphate, a pan-Islamic state hearkening back to the glories of the Muslim Caliphate of Baghdad, conjuring images of Caliph Harun al-Rashid and the days when Muslim scholars and phiosophers were inventing algebra and discussing Aristotle. THat conference was to be hosted by the Hizb-ut-Tahrir party, as I noted in my comments.
Well, one of you forwarded me - on the very same day as I posted those comments - the following interesting article:
Note what we have:
- A radical Islamicist organization, based in London - a fact that should immediate raise twitching antennae of suspicion - which has been banned in most Muslim countries;
- The party, as noted in the article, is suspected by Muslim countries and leadership, as having ties to Britain's MI-6, and that means
- ties to the financial sector, ie., the City of London.
Note the crucial words:
"However, experts believe that HuT is used by the MI6 as part of the Anglo-American strategy to contain the influence of Russians and Chinese in Central Asian Republics. HuT is reportedly linked to the Muslim Brotherhood which has long been a front for the CIA and MI6. the Brotherhood has been used by MI6 and CIA to weaken the independent governments in the Middle East. Former DCM of Egyptian Embassy in Pakistan Dr. Reza Shihata established in his Ph.D. thesis that the Brotherhood was linked with the CIA. He relied heavily on “ see-only” references in the library of the American Congress on the secret contacts between the Brotherhood and CIA."
As I argued in that News and Views, and later in a blog, the creation of such an entity would indeed serve the interests of the Western elites by creating a powerful enough enemy to ratchet up war hysteria and blend the Western bloc more tightly together politically and economically. It is significant in that regard that the leadership of the Muslim states themselves have been casting a suspicious eye on this organization.
Note also that the article specifically states that the target region of Hizb-ut-Tahrir is Central Asia, where, of course, if you've been following the plot of this opera, is the center of vast energy reserves, the region which, according to Zbgnw Brzznsk, the West, and in particular, the USA, must dominate. That in itself, to my mind, not only makes my antenna pulse with suspicion, but sends my suspicion meter into the red zone, as to who actually is behind this organziation.
See you on the flip side...
