Dear President Obama:
Yesterday Aaron Miller of the Wilson Center called me a “dreamer and naysayer” for suggesting the possibility of a one state solution for Palestine to fast track the pitiful 60 year old peace process in that region. Additional, he “suggests” that if Iran doesn’t currently have nuke capability they will have it in the very near future.
Though I don’t have either the academic or professional credentials Mr. Miller has, I do consider myself a highly intelligent, self taught scholar in a wide range of subject matter including history and current events. This “beast of muddy brain”, along with most of The Tribe on Spaceship Earth, are tired of the “fear as a business model” rhetoric. We’ve individually and collectively seen through the veil of ignorance and hate mongering of the few and no longer want to continue assisting with the creation of that reality.
We inherently believe in Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s word energies of 1941 in regards to the 4 freedoms owed to all mankind – of speech, of worship, from fear, from want:
"In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms. The first is freedom of speech and expression—everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way—everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want—which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants—everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear—which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor—anywhere in the world. That is no vision of a distant millennium. It is a definite basis for a kind of world attainable in our own time and generation. That kind of world is the very antithesis of the so-called new order of tyranny which the dictators seek to create with the crash of a bomb."—Franklin D. Roosevelt, excerpted from the State of the Union Address to the Congress, January 6, 1941
Some of these freedoms you spoke about in your 2009 Cairo speech are what brought about the audacity of hope by all members of The Tribe around the globe. It emboldened, particularly the young, to create organizations such as Occupy Wall Street and saw the dawning of the Arab spring.
Unfortunately their positive word energies and actions weren’t strong enough to drown out the negative word energies and actions of the purveyors of “fear as a business model”. And one of the biggest promoters are the Zionists, as you well know, painting Iran as the latest boogie man to threaten Israel and the region.
So when you said “When one nation pursues a nuclear weapon, the risk of nuclear attack rises for all nations” why doesn’t this apply to the nation of Israel as it’s the ONLY nation in that region with a known arsenal of nuclear weapons of mass destruction, acquiring these weapons, whether by purchase or theft of technology and proprietary information from ….. us?
By aiding and abetting the state of Israel with monetary and military aid, you raise Israel over all others in the region, contrary to your words of “Given our interdependence, any world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will inevitably fail.” And when you stated that “We cannot impose peace” you had it wrong as well given the economic sanctions against Iran and others have proven these actions do work.
Since the creators of this historic blunder, FDR, Churchill, and the very reluctant Ibn Saud are no longer here to correct this malfeasance of justice, that duty now falls into America’s very capable hands, i.e. you! Just for giggles, to cut the Israeli crap that they’ve consistently shoveled down everyone’s throat, shut off all aid, monetary and military. Their economy is in far better shape than ours and their Iron Dome proved highly successful in the latest spat with the Palestinians. And the Iranian nuke threat?? Please remind Bibi that he has enough nukes to blow up his own country along with a good portion of N. Africa, the Eastern Mediterranean, and the Middle East combined.
But as a “dreamer and naysayer”, I say go for the gusto by standing your ground on a 1 state, equal rights for all, reparations to 1967 borders for the Palestinians. When Bibi’s head is about to pop like a tick, explain that after 60 years of lying about their false pretenses of peace all members of The Tribe are sick and tired of their deadly childish antics, particularly the American tax payer.
“Beasts of muddy brain”, billions in number around the globe, are tired of wasting life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness so a select few million people can dictate how the rest of us must view and accept THEIR twisted creation of reality. We’ve moved on from the negative words, thoughts, emotions, and actions of the few. Have you?
PS: For transparency’s sake can you please call on Yemeni President Ali Saleh to release journalist Abdulelah Haider Shaye. He’s suffered enough for doing his job of broadening The Tribes worldview by uncovering mindless murder of innocent Yemeni’s and Americans by America. Makes us look like hypocrites if you know what I mean.
Don’t remember exact date I wrote this, sometime in the fall of 2010 I believe
