about the middle of the 7th century AD, the whole of the Arab
Peninsula began to disintegrate. It fell apart and blew out of all
proportions, theologically, politically and culturally. Mohammad Ibn
Abdullah Al-Quraishi began to reshape the Arab Peninsula in the image of
his newly emerging religion of Islam. Under his direct leadership, Prophet
Mohammad reformed the Arab Peninsula by introducing a New World Order. He
constituted the religion of Islam as the foundation stone on which the
Arab society would be built. Arab Peninsula assumed a new concept of
far-reaching dimensions: One God, One Nation, and One Language. Like a
snowball, it began to roll and grow. It has since become unstoppable. The
notion of domineering the world with the religion of Islam has since been
firmly entrenched in the minds of his benefactors, and followers of the
faith. The notion of this long-term objective has just started breaking at
the seams, spilling over in all directions. This surge must be stopped and
brought under control at all cost and rid the world of its menace.
All previous religions, territorial dominions and cultures were to be
phased out. They were destined to total elimination. Henceforth, only one
God would be observed, one script would be recognized as the liturgical
language and one form of social culture would be rendered as acceptable to
guide the people's daily code of conduct. All the rest would be phased
This theological surge had presumably been based on the call to "HAYYA LI-NUGH-DHI-A
LKAW-NA WA NUS-LIMUHU - FA-SAIFUNA HAQQON WALA MANN YASODDOH, meaning:
"Come on, let us subdue the world and Islamise it - our sword is just and
no one can repulse it." A millennium ago, they lacked the know-how and
failed. A century ago, they lacked the financial means. Beginning the
21-century, they have both and more zealotry.
All future intermarriages would be sanctioned under the strict Islamic
Shari'ah law. It would be conditional to sever all relations with the
past. In the final analysis, except for Moslems, all other religions would
have to abide by this law, lump it or leave it. By their lapse into
seclusion and neglect, their old parental linkage would erode to total
extinction, and disappear. All civilizations would melt into the crucible
Islamic pot. Islam would supersede all existing religions. Islam would
finally become the Abode of Peace, domineering the whole world. Any
deviation from Al-Ssirat Al-Mustaqeem, the true path of Allah, would be
considered as dissension and subversion. The offender would be meted out
with severe punishment.
Moslems use the Arab Christian as a bridgehead. They more often use him
as a rundle on the ladder of success. Later, they use him as a footstool
to rest their feet in relaxation as a sign of triumph. The Arab Moslem
indulges in business ventures, using the Christian as a rung, to
consolidate his foothold in a new venturesome bid, to help him ensure
success. Christians are also often used as a front, like a facade in
Arab and non-Arab countries. They leave the way open for the Arab
Christian to take over and promote the launched enterprise. This stratagem
covers the whole world, except China. For now, much of their capitals are
invested through a second party.
Twenty-two (22) Arab
states, spread throughout the Middle East and North Africa, are Islamic.
Arab Christians do not enjoy full political rights and less so cultural
rights. Christians in the Arab Islamic states are denied political rights
in the true sense of the word. Few privileged positions do exist. They are
assigned to Christians by appointment or decree. They are appointed in
high positions without any constitutional power, void of authority. They
are no more than figurehead puppets, serving their Arab Moslem masters,
locally and abroad. Moslems assume the Christians as untrustworthy. They
consider them unfit for high positions, not because of their high
competency, but because of their Christian faith.
The difference between the Arab Moslem and the Arab Christian is mainly in
religion, not race. They are Semitic. They are the same in race and
demography. This results in the existence of two separate and distinct
cultures, leading to total difference and variance in the concept of the
two cultures. The civic and social behaviour of the individual of either
side of the two societies turns into odds and ends to the point of
incongruity. Though the two societies live in close proximity,
side-by-side, they function independently, in complete isolation of each
other, all year round. The daily activity and behaviour of the bustling
city and it's surrounding, looks normal. Yet, the Arab Christian cannot
accommodate himself comfortably in Moslem dominated countries. There are
certain traditions and rules that override those of the Christian
residents. And they are varied and many. They
cause constant irritation and abuse to either side of the spectrum.
It is like trying to avoid stepping on an eggshell or broken glass strewn
about. The Arab Moslems move in a self-conscious manner, tinted with
self-denial. They consider any place outside their turf, which does not
agree with their culture, as totally strange and foreign. At times, they
resent it, and at others, they criticize it openly.
Considering all things being equal, the Arab Moslems and Arab Christians
are similar in many ways. They share the same Arabic language and script;
musical instruments, music and songs; food and apparel. In some instances,
they even tread on common grounds such as going to the same school,
teahouse, cafe, restaurant, cinema, and entertainment centres. They
commute on public transport without much fuzz. At one time, they even
owned camels. They used them as caravans in trade and travel. Yet,
practically, Islamic states, first and foremost, now belong to the Moslem
The Moslem male generally overwhelms all public utilities and
institutions. He is free to access them without any reservation. Yet, he
is seldom seen in company with his female partner in a social gathering,
unless, of course, the function is exclusively Islamic. Although the
Moslem female has full freedom of movement in public, she is very careful
not to associate with non-Moslem males. Other than such places as
learning institutions and place of work, she is not allowed to associate
with non-Moslem male under any circumstances. Mixed public functions are
a taboo. Otherwise, she would be questioned, and warned and probably
punished. Honour killing is
Since both societies
function within a very limited scope of fellowship, they become socially
distant and closed-minded. The question arises as to why the Arab
Christians should not have their own Christian state. Like Moslem
monarchies such as the states of Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia
and scores of other Arab Islamic states, spread all throughout the Middle
East, the Arab Peninsula and North Africa. Arab Christians would, at
least, be free from a culture that, though it bears resemblance to theirs
in formalities only, it is irrelevant to them, as far as the Christian
culture is concerned. At times, the two societies become irritable to each
other, and lock up in a long struggle because of conflict of interest.
Over fifteen (15)
million Arab Christians live in Arab Moslem States. The government system
of all the 22 states, listed by the Arab League, is defined as Moslem,
based on the Shari'ah law. Arab Christians have been muzzled. Their
political rights are denied. Their social rights are diminishing, forcing
them to blend with the Arab Moslem culture. Islamic Shari'ah Law is
systematically regulating their life to utter subservience. By this
process, Islam is eroding the Christian culture. Its long-term objective
is to substitute the genuine racial identity of the Egyptian Copt, the
Israeli, and the Assyrian, for Arab, equating them with the Arab
Christian. Does this fit with the term democracy?
Why should not the above four dispossessed nations be allowed to wrest
their usurped territory, regain their independence and live under their
own sovereign rule? Who sanctioned the whole of the Middle East and North
Africa to the Moslem occupiers? Why is the history of the above aggrieved
and dispossessed nations suppressed and hidden from the public and
academic study? The more they cry for justice, the harder the United
Nations suppress their demands for transparency and justice.
Arab Christians compromise their scholarly expertise for their own
personal gain. Politically, they are shortsighted. Instead of striving
for an Arab Christian state, of their own, using their academic excellence
to regain their dignity and live a free and independent life, they
compromise their principle and become complacent and obedient to the Arab
Moslem states and its laws. They believe that because they term
themselves Arabs, they are privileged and stand a better chance of
improving their lot. They could be right, but what an empty life of
unfulfilled ambition. They have fallen short of their national
achievement. They are leading an exaggerated life built on false hope.
Eventually, the Moslem will strip the Christian of his assets, unless the
latter follows in the heel of Islam. Observe North Africa, especially
Algeria and Egypt. Likewise, look at the conditions in Iraq, Israel, Syria
and now Lebanon; they are all heading towards bankruptcy of their faith,
assets and culture. How many non-Moslem successful businesspersons and
landowners are there in Iraq, let alone Iran.
Out of desperation, Arab Christians have now turned on the Assyrians, in
an attempt to grasp their heel and drag them down with them, into the
abyss, terming them Arab. They have been backing the Arab Moslems against
the indigenous Israelis, Assyrians and Copts for centuries. Being Arab,
they habitually side with the Palestinians. They endear themselves to the
Arab Moslems and appease them. In return, Arab Moslems award them with
generous job placement, and facilitate matters to them so long as they
side with the Islamic Arab policy of assimilation.
The dispossessed Assyrian Nation looks at the world affairs in a realistic
manner. Assyrians are Christians. They believe in their God, Yahweh -
the Living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-Israel. God's promise that He
will revive and restore Assyria is assured in Job 14:7-9 and Isaiah
19:23-25. Or else, the world should adopt the scientific Process of
Evolution of the "Big Bang" Theorem. All religions should go and be done
with, constituting their ethical and moral values on benevolence and human
justice, rather than the Divine and the Ten Commandments, and the gift of
salvation by Grace. Where do the world sectarians stand in regard to this
issue? Why are they silent, or sitting on the fence, and not speaking
out? It is indicative of the ecclesiastics' weak faith in the word of
their Creator. If humankind is the creature of a big bang, he certainly
will end up with a big bang. So, why turn against each other, why the
rush? Unless, of course, one believes in the redemption of life, to
challenge life and live it to the full, with all its good and ills, always
doing good and hoping for the best.
The spread of such weakness is evidenced in all religions. It has caused
many of their congregations to stray from the truth. Some ecclesiastics
formulate new and different interpretations to certain passages and
versions of the Scriptures. They license themselves to marry couples of
the same sex, to exaggerate or understates certain verses of the
Scriptures as outmoded, consecrating the new interpretations as Devine,
connecting them to the Word of God as legitimate. They have lost touch
with their mission of preaching and practising of the Ten Commandments of
God and the Covenant of the New Testament. They act as the "The Foolish
Shepherd" (Zechariah 11: 15-17).
The sad thing about
this change is that the West has lately interpreted the concept of God as
different from its originally genuine acceptance. To them, religion has
become monotonous, and to some perhaps as tiresome. In addition, paradise
as a reward, with nothing much to do, everlasting life becomes boring.
Their progress and advancement in technology has strayed them from
focusing on finding the truth, unaware, or unwilling to accept that at the
end of the day, the New Scrolls that would be opened would be entirely
different from what the mortal man had envisaged. Many may even doubt in
the prediction of such Scrolls.
The Assyrians have been tempered. They will hold fast to their faith,
unperturbed. Assyrians will not compromise their faith for worldly
comfort. They have so far endured for nearly two thousand years. They
will continue to do so, though the worst is yet to come.
Persons that abandon
their mother tongue and adopt a foreign one resemble orphaned children,
living on pittance. Whether by choice, by design or default, Arab
Christians have adapted to the unpalatable lifestyle of their surrogate
out of disparity and non-performance. Often times, they play down the
seriousness of their plight. They are happy the way they are - very
successful. Some reckon they are full to the brim, and doing very well.
There is no need to change, as some of them say. Some carry dual
citizenship. They can visit their country of origin whenever they feel
like it. To them, "that's life." Not like the Assyrian, 'the scum of the
earth', as they sometimes call the Assyrians and Jews. The Arabs also add
that they, the Assyrians, are still living in the past in the Dark Ages.
And that they always come up with excuses just because they were kicked
out and finished. Carrying on, with this mentality, the Arab Christians
will eventually follow suit. If they continue in this trend, they will
become 'dregs of the earth.' They better sober up and reconsider their
situation, or they will soon end up in a slipshod slide, hit the bottom of
the pit and join the 'dregs of the earth.'
Arab Christians relate the Assyrians to the Arab
stock, through assimilation, to justify their own inaptitude and ire.
They lack the moral courage to take up the challenge and demand their
political rights, wholly independent from the Arab Islamic states. Arab
Christians will remain slavish, until they rise up and free themselves
from the heavy yoke of Islam. They were historically Phoenician. Later,
they claimed to be remnant of the Canaanites. Then Aramaeans. In recent
past, they identified themselves with the name of the country: Lebanese.
Now, they call themselves Arabs? God help the genealogists.
Until the mid fifties, Lebanon was considered as the Swiss of the East, or
(Durrat Al-Sharq) Pearl of the East. It has now been relegated to (Malha
[al] Sharq) - the Cabaret of the East. It is being used as an amusement
centre, stealing the limelight and worldly pleasures away from Cairo,
Egypt and bringing them to Beirut, Lebanon. Lebanon has become (Bu'erat
Fasad), the orchestra pit - the house of corruption and depravity. By
doing so, the Arab Islamic states are trying to enliven the morality image
of their countries, at the expense of the nominally Christian Lebanon. To
look virtuous, Arab Moslems demean Lebanon as the centre of promiscuity
Arab Christians are too reluctant to act in the interest of their own
country. They are so rich in scholarly knowledge, yet are so poor
politically. If religion is the name of the game in the Islamic states,
then it is the duty of the Arab Christians to challenge the Arab Islamic
states for their rights, as the Assyrians and the Israelites are doing.
They need to rid themselves of Oriental neo-colonialism. In the past, it
was Islamic conquests, Ottoman brutality and Western imperialism. The
residues left by those three belligerents has developed into Islamic
neo-colonialism, more despotic than its predecessors. Neo-colonialism
has to go and be done with, and with good riddance. Arab Christians should
advocate and cherish the concept of an independent Arab Christian State.
They need to regulate their life without the need for others to meddle in
its own affairs.
Arab Christians pose as proud Arabs, especially in oil-rich states, to
gain employment and promote good business relations with them. By doing
so, Arab Christians remain slumped in the quagmire of their irresolute
approach of their destiny. They are living on borrowed time. Arab
Christians will eventually wear the long flowing Arab robe - Dish-Da-Sha,
signifying their defeatism, especially when seen in cafes, sitting
relaxed, toying with a set of threaded beads in their hand, or high,
smoking the Hubble-bubble (narghile) pipe and in a dazed mood.
The Arab Christian population of Bethlehem, the birthplace of
Christianity, has recently dropped to a mere five percent (5%) or less.
Do the Arab Christians honestly believe that they can hold on to Lebanon
and retain it under Christian governance? With such a slack aptitude, it
is doubtful. Christianity losing the birthplace of its religion, means
contraction and eventual strangulation, pinning all their hope on their
Lord for their salvation from their anarchists. Though hopeful, it is a
Factionalism aside, the indigenous of the Middle East, and North Africa
are called upon to wake up to themselves. They need to unite, and remain
vigilant. They are urged to combine their efforts and form adequate
fronts, strong enough to repudiate false allegations that the whole of the
indigenous peoples of the Middle East and North Africa have long been
vanquished or assimilated with the Arab Moslem majority. This is a
blatant lie! The non-Moslem indigenous peoples of the Middle East make up
scores of millions. The false 'IN-QARA-DHU" Arabic rhetoric, for
extinguished, no longer applies. It is idle talk and exaggeration to keep
on describing them as extinct. If the Arab Moslems seek to resort to the
"do or die"/"The Samson Option" strategy, then let them be assured that
democratic countries of the free world are well prepared and ready, to
take them on.
The world family of nations regards the United Nations Organization as the
guardian and promoter of human rights. Nations look upon the UN as the
arbiter and enforcer of laws that concern humanity at large. The UN is
entrusted with the power and vested with authority to bring an end to
Islamic colonialism. The UN needs to embark on the task to decolonize the
above three occupied states from the Islamic Shari'ah rule. Oriental
colonialism is a scourge that should be condemned by all humanity. Those
who defend it are evil in disguise, like the Janjaweed devils of the
Sudan. The above three states under siege of Islam must be decolonised.
They must be unshackled from the brutal Shari'ah rule and set free.
Christians need to decide as to whether they wish to remain as Arab
rundles, under the heel of Islam, or fight for their legitimate right and
break away. Similar to scores of Arab Moslem States, Arab Christians
should demand that they be recognised as ARAB CHRISTIANS, on their soil.
They need to have their own independent
and live under the sovereign rule of their own Christian people and
culture. A modified Lebanon would be ideal.
as a whole, should rid itself of all forms of colonialism, be it in Asia,
the Far East, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, or South America. The
notion of building empires on the crushed bones of fellow humans is long
growth, peace and harmony will only be maintained when equity is used as
the common denominator. And when it is applied in all fairness to all
human beings, considering them as one global family, yet each group within
its own traditional delineated territory. The notion of domineering will
