*The Following post is just my take on middle eastern politics, I am in no way claim that I am really knowledgeable about what’s really going on, I do not claim that what I say is true, I do not claim that because I am Lebanese I need to have a set of pre-set ideas and opinions about certain countries, I do not claim that this is fair, I do not claim that you should take any thing written in this post with more than a pinch of salt. Please if you are a real expert of the region  and its politics and you think what I say is a lot of bullshit, feel free to correct me as long as you try as much as you can be objective. Oh and like usual dear readers, if you don’t like what I say stop reading my blog 🙂 *

**In here I am trying to be as logical as I can be, as objective as I can be (which is probably not very possible since I am Lebanese but will try my best), I will be very critical of religions, very critical of racism, sectarianism, stupidity. I will not be patriotic. I will just try to be human**

I)Invented Races

First things first, just a bold statements that would  piss off most of you just to get rid of unwanted readers, I think the whole middle east borders and countries need to repartitioned, it was partitioned randomly probably by a few drunken people celebrating their victory against the Germans and Ottomans, they didn’t even bother looking at the demographics while drunkenly drew the dotted lines cutting off the ex-Ottoman empire. Or maybe they did and wanted eternal conflict in the region.Second, Arabs and Jews are newly created expanded people for political reason, no I do not mean that Arabs and Jews don’t exist, I am just saying their current form is false.In the current form, Arab “race” includes anyone residing in the dog area(for the people new to this world, the arabic countries put together look like a dog if you squint), and Jewish “race” which describes anyone from Jewish parents (both for orthodox, mother for moderates/reform etc. ).The problem? for political reasons both entities became races.

There isn’t much in common between a Tunisian, an Egyptian, a Lebanese, a Saudi, and a Somali other than the language that we use in our text books that we call Arabic.Genes, Cultures, Food, Habits, Local Languages are different, we have almost nothing in common. For example the Lebanese are much more similar to Greeks in all of these terms than any of the others mentioned above. I am always mistaken for a Greek in Edinburgh, the food is almost identical, the culture is almost a copy, even the languages have some similarities. Could you dare call the Greeks Arabs? How about the Italians?

Same applies to the Jews, how much in common do you see between an Ashkenazis, Shepardic, Mizrahim, African and Chinese jew: Their religion. Different Food, different genes, different culture, different languages. For the people who don’t know the Hebrew language was dead, it was only revived recently with the creation ofIsrael.The Jews were talking in what ever language the country they resided was used.

So why both people were created? POWER. Basically what drives most Elites, and to get power you need sheep, and to get sheep you need to brainwash them and unite them with a cause. Pan-arabism for arabs, and Zionism for Jews; thus our disaster began…

**End of Part 1**

PS: Hope I pissed enough people off already.

  1. Hey, I loved it! Carry on!

    I was only pissed off for one reason: Where you say:

    For example the Lebanese are much more similar to Greeks in all of these terms than any of the others mentioned above.

    –> I don’t know how Greeks do dick-wise…perhaps I could inform them on your size and you on mine?
