International business consultant and wildlife foundation manager Sami Jamil Jadallah discusses his article “Qatar World Cup Getting Smeared by a Well-Organized, Well-Funded Racist Attack Machine.” He writes: “My message to these pundits (criticizing Qatar) is to shut the F-CK up and look at your history of hate, racism, and colonial wars. If one does not enjoy a good game without being drunk, that person has a problem. As for LBGT issues, let us keep in mind till recently, sodomy was a criminal felony, and Black and White marriage was illegal and punishable by jail. So please don’t teach us your mentally and ethically corrupt morality. As an Arab and a Muslim, ‘We Are All Qatar.’”

    Qatari crimes against humanity are too great to overlook. I could get past occasional beating or death of some Paki worker, but charging 12 Euro for a glass of beer is just a step too far – especially when the only beer you can get is Budweiser! I believe this is how drinkers are tormented in hell.

  3. Out of one face the press lectures us to respect the traditions and customs of other cultures. Out of their other face, they savagely attack any culture that doesn’t embrace woke ideology.

  4. Mamagen says:

    The reasons why the public-private partnership of Anglo/Euro govts/NGOs/mass media focus on LGBT “human rights violations” in Qatar is to:

    1) avoid talking about *real* violations of *natural* human rights (that is, the disgraceful treatment and even deaths of laborers, many if not most of whom were functionally enslaved…& please spare me the “advances the labor law” that this catastrophe has supposedly catalyzed) and

    2) if they do talk about the enslaved workers, the dead workers, then they can flatten the distinction between imaginary & real rights. So the German team not being allowed to wear their rainbow armbands (which, by the way, was FIFA’s decision, not Qatar’s) is just as important as the dead laborers, the bones these ziggurats cover.

    The reason why they want to avoid talking about the enslavement and deaths of the laborers is because Qatar is just one collaborator among many. The German players are another collaborator. Everyone watching the games at home is complicit.

    The reason why they must flatten the distinction between real & imaginary rights is that they plan to violate a lot of real rights in the future–specifically, the right not to be enslaved, warehoused like an animal, & possibly even worked to death. It’s immaterial to them whether the subhuman slaves are engaged in procreative sex or sodomy.

    What kind of “rights” did the Pharaohs advocate for their slaves? The right to beer, right? Which actually used more grain (the currency of Egypt) for fewer calories than would the cooking of porridge or baking of bread. So, similarly, our rulers dictate that we have a “right” to indulgence & to amusement.

  5. When Trump was president, the global media didn’t want him to take credit of pardoning Assange, and they all piled on Assange. But now that Biden is in the oval office, the media are saying ‘go easy on Assange’ so that Democrats will take credit for being nice.

    Same with Afghanistan. When Trump was prez, the media did everything to prevent the withdrawal lest Trump get the credit for ending the war. But when Biden was prez, it was okay to pull out.

    These Jewish supremacists who control the media…

  6. KenR says:

    Is there something about Christians and Jews that just doesn’t mix? Jadallah’s observation that everybody gets along better in Morocco, and elsewhere in the Muslim world, rings true.

    I can’t entirely accept that “antisemitism is a Western European problem” in the way he states it, placing the blame mostly at the feet of European Christians. Western grievances with the Jews do not seem to come entirely without basis. Jews do insinuate themselves into our institutions where they accumulate great power and they do use this influence to shape our civic affairs, our economies, our laws. Even, lately, our very language and our permissible thoughts.

    Does Islam have something to teach us about how institutions and cultural stores can have stronger fortifications? Do the Muslims have some stronger defense against cultural incursion?

  7. Like Qatar isn’t an evil shithole.

  8. @KenR

    “Do the Muslims have some stronger defense against cultural incursion?” Great question! The short answer is “yes.” Islam tolerates and protects multi-ethnic multi-religious communities, but also promotes strong solidarity between Muslims and prefers that the Muslims be the ones who maintain order. The five-times-daily prayer, which is often performed collectively in shoulder-to-shoulder lines, intensifies and epitomizes solidarity. (It’s somewhat comparable to reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or singing the national anthem in the US, but more frequent and more intense, and packs a much stronger sacred/spiritual punch.) The notion of lesser jihad, struggle in defense of the (Muslim) community, undoubtedly plays a role. And shunning alcohol and pork, aside from the health benefits, also promotes solidarity with co-religionists who do the same.

    There is no “Judeo-Islam” the way there is “Judeo-Christianity.” There is no Scofield Qur’an. Islam holds that the Torah has been corrupted by human transmitters.

    And the very strong Islamic condemnation of usury undoubtedly has played a role in hindering Jewish elites from gaining wildly disproportionate power in the Islamic world the way they have in the West.

    Finally, while Islamic communities have often been conscious of racial differences, sometimes overtly racist in terms of esteeming some groups over others, they have been much less racist overall than European communities, due to the Qur’an’s anti-racism and to the circulation and intermarriage of so many racial groups in the middle lattitudes dominated by Islam. So there has never been the racially-tinged “anti-Semitism” (racial prejudice against Jews as a supposedly brown-skinned Semitic group) that arose in 19th-century Europe.

  9. There is no “Judeo-Islam” the way there is “Judeo-Christianity.”

    Judeo-Christianity? On p. 575 of Die Entstehung einer Weltreligion V, Verlag Schiler & Mücke, Berlin/Tübingen 2020, one can read that in the precedent volume IV, under the title “Zum Einfluss des Judenchristentums auf Koran und Islam”, the authors endeavored to “dezidiert zu widerlegen, dass es zur Zeit der Islam-Genese noch wirkliche Judenchristen als lebendige Gruppe überhaupt gegeben habe// decidedly refute (the idea) that in the time of Islam’s inception there still existed true Judeo-Christians as a living group”.

    As to “no Judeo-Islam”, whence do Abraham, Moses, Isaac, Ismail etcaetera come from? The +/- 50 authors of that “enchevêtrement étymologique et sémantique // etymological and semantic entanglement”, that “mélimélo d’aphorismes chrétiens // mishmash of Christian aphorisms”, that “phagocytage de biens et doctrines judaïques // phagocytage of Judaïc goods and doctrines” (Die Entstehung einer Weltreligion V, Schiler & Mücke, Berlin/Tübingen 2020, p. 525) called “qur’ân” of course didn’t know that neither of those patriarchs ever existed and so on, I repeatedly have written about the topic.

    They’re envious that we can eat bacon.

  11. @René Fries

    If you see Abraham, Moses, etc. as “Jews” then you are a Jew, or duped by Jewish mythology. If you see them as prophets of universal (not tribal) monotheism, you are either a Muslim or an intelligent, non-Judaized Christian.

  12. A Moslem country being smeared by a well-organised Western hate campaign, led by the BBC yeshiva. Who could possibly be behind it?

  13. How on earth am I supposed to see NON-EXISTING Nobodies (https://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/never-let-a-good-crisis-go-to-waste/#comment-5548374 ] as anything ((… you name it)) whatsoever???

    The said non-existence simply makes nonsense of your second phrase.

    Of course, without “Abraham, Moses etcaetera”, Jesus and all that follows – including ourselves – wouldn’t have come into existence, I’ve repeatedly insisted upon that [“(…) neither China nor India nor Persia nor any other civilization has been lucky enough to have had the chance of getting a Catholic Church” https://www.unz.com/pescobar/the-second-coming-of-the-heartland/#comment-5507414 ]

    There is very little scientifically-reliable information about people who lived thousands of years ago. And there is even less scientifically-reliable information relevant to the central sphere of human activity, which is discovering and participating in meaning. So we can either choose to be nihilists (your position) or accept that the less-than-fully-scientific information passed down to us through traditional channels can be helpful or even essential, and that characters like Abraham and Moses (and the Karamazov brothers for that matter) are far more important than the shallow portraits attempted by “scientific history.”

    And if you want to directly know the prophets, that is also possible, but you’ll most likely have to learn the appropriate forms of meditation and persist for a great many years.

    especially when the only beer you can get is Budweiser!

    I have never considered Budweiser to be beer. Irrespective of the price, drinking it is akin to being tormented in hell.

  16. @Kevin Barrett

    Entirely false. There is very much scientifically-reliable information about those people. If “state of the art philological and historical methodologies” (http://inarah.net/ ) do mean anything, one has to accept that the results of the “Inârah” research [10 books (6977 pages) hitherto published and in my possession] are as valid as are those of, say, the “Code theory” which “enables the functioning of computers, the Internet, image compression for digital pictures, multi-channel TV-reception, and many other indispensable technologies of the modern world. A written text is an oral speech that is coded as a series of characters, an image on a TV screen or a photograph is coded by a sequence of pixels, and all of these are represented by bits. Code theory applies to any sequence of symbols. (…) In conducting my research for my thesis, I used the branch of code theory that applies to written texts. It is called Analysis of text Data (ATD)”, Die Entstehung einer Weltreligion IV, Verlag Hans Schiler, Berlin 2017, p. 852, original in English. Do you use computers, the Internet, image compression for digital pictures, multi-channel TV-reception, and many other indispensable technologies of the modern world? If so, you implicitly accept that the Code theory is correct and hence and for instance, that “Muhammad” never existed: “The mathematical ‘signature’ of an author can identify his writings among texts from different authors. It works like biological DNA (…) The mathematical signature can also be used to reveal how many authors are responsible for a text (…) Henri Poincaré (foot note: La science et l’hypothèse, Flammarion, 1902, Paris) was the first to introduce a concept that is now fundamental to science: to test the validity of a theory, you must deduce an unknown but predicted fact or result from it. If the predicted result is not observed, then the theory is wrong (…) The Fact: There are nineteen different signatures in the Koran. Among them, nine belong to a single author, and ten belong to different authors. – The Hypothesis: The length distribution of the writings of each author of the ten components believed to be the work of multiple authors is the same as that of the nine components believed to be the work of a single author. Each of the single authors has a different signature. — The Conclusion: The Koran has at least thirty authors, at most one hundred, but most probably around fifty (foot note: We get a kind of bell curve, with a minimum, a maximum, and between them, a maximum probability)”, ibid., pp. 855 sq., bold writing + italics in the original.

    2nd answer:

    So we can either choose to be nihilists (your position)

    I’m by no means a nihilist but a church-going Catholic who has read Hans Blumenberg and Nicolaus Cusanus and Thomas Aquinas and Baruch Spinoza. Simply put, the HYPOTHESIS “God” seems to me an acceptable one, even if it cannot be but a hypothesis (each and every “proof” being wishful thinking at best). This being said, IF God exists, THEN he cannot be but the truth itself. Now, the authors named are adamant that scientific truth about the surrounding world ( = “Nature”) is the only one we humans can ever get, Spinoza going as far as to equate God with Nature (“Deus sive natura”) – you see my position.

    that characters like Abraham and Moses (and the Karamazov brothers for that matter) are far more important

    that’s exactly my position when I say that without “Abraham, Moses etcaetera” (quotation marks) there would have been no Jesus and consequently, no modern world including ourselves. So, yes, many thanks to “Abraham, Moses etcaetera” (quotation marks).

    Why have the Belgians residing in Canada, or the Canadese of Belgian extraction, NOT rioted and NOT burnt any cars over there, when Belgium won against Canada?
