ESA No 57 - Summer/Winter 2015
to unforeseen circumstances, the Summer issue was so late that I decided to combine Summer and Autumn issues into this edition.
This will mean subscription
renewals will now be delayed for a few months until publication is back to normal, that is to say, to a quarterly publication.
My apologies to all for any inconvenience.
We have dropped renewal of the PO Box service after the American capitalist now running the Royal Mail asked
for the sum of £252.00 for a year. When it was a public service in 2005, I was charged £56.00.
There are alternate similar services but after much
consideration I decided to dispense with all of them. All future written correspondence should now go to Robert Edwards at
Grove House in Addington Street in Ramsgate. Full address above. Subscribers are free to phone me. Other than that, it is
business as usual.
Action is essentially humanitarian as opposed to the impersonators based in Switzerland with a neo-Nazi agenda, some of whose
supporters here in Britain describe themselves as ‘racial nationalists’. European Action is neither racial nor
plight of millions of Syrians has touched the hearts of many in Europe but thousands of men, women and children have died
in the effort getting here for safety. The Germans have taken in many with a correct regard for genuine refugees. Countries
in the Baltics have drawn up the drawbridge, so to speak. David Cameron says he will take in a very small number over five
years. Some European ‘Union’.
Putin’s Russia has taken in far larger numbers of these refugees with no fuss whatsoever. More than
the whole of Europe combined. The last place these Syrian refugees should go is the United States which is populated with
brainwashed Islamophobes armed to the teeth with all sorts of guns and ready to use them. Muslims there are persecuted with
the connivance of Homeland Security laws. Russia treats them far better and is a genuine friend of Syria.
The important point in all this is missed.
The plight of the Syrians is entirely the fault of those who gave financial help and military hardware to the opposition to
the president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad. I name the sectarian Sunni Wahhabists of Saudi Arabia ... and the United States as
the principal protagonists in this conspiracy, the former being motivated by a hatred of Iran and Shia Islam, the latter being
neo-con servants of Israeli expansionism. The removal of al-Assad would leave Syria carved up and run by factions of bandit
militias, Islamist and others. The US-led NATO left Libya in that condition after it was a successful state under Colonel
Gadaffi. Iraq and Afghanistan are both in a similar shambles. This was all carried out by design. I hate this term but ‘the
West’ is entirely responsible for all of this humanitarian misery and death in the region. ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE!
Bring the genuine refugees into Europe and look
after them until such a time that Syria is saved and the secular state of al-Assad is restored by its allies, Russia and Iran.
ISIS/Daesh is being pummelled by Russian and Syrian
air forces. The United States does not like this. Why? American attempts at targeting ISIS/Daesh have done nothing. Empty
warehouses were attacked by US aircraft after the terrorist occupants were warned. Large caches of valuable arms intended
for Kurdish freedom fighters overshot their target and ended up in the hands of ISIS/Daesh. US drones murder civilians, often
complete wedding parties. Recently a hospital in Afghanistan was almost destroyed by US planes even while the occupants were
calling for the Americans to stop.
is not al-Assad who is the ‘butcher’. It is the Americans and their allies. And someone claimed my anti-Americanism
is “out of date”. Far from it, chum.
Editorial ESA No 56 - Spring 2015
LEGISLATING FREEDOM OF SPEECH
Home Secretary, Theresa May, wants
to restrict our freedoms further with new legislation that makes it a criminal offence to be an extremist. “Radicalisation”
is also targeted. The latter being a cudgel for beating those devout British Muslims who frighten the faint-hearted secular
is a clause that penalises those who fail to report the activities of ‘radicalised’ British Muslims. In fact,
the Home Office would like you to snitch on your neighbours if you think their behaviour or appearance is akin to that of
Osama bin Laden or Abu Hamza. This would include the wearing of a beard, no doubt. Quick, get on the phone to your local police
station. It will all be treated in strictest confidence.
Without the Liberal Democrats in coalition, the new Tory government is
going for a policy of sledgehammers cracking walnuts. The Americans have been doing it for years with their Patriot Act with
the result that they still have Guantanamo Bay detaining innocent Muslims (innocent until proven guilty) and Muslims in the
streets being targeted by dumbed-down gun-mad “patriots” who think ‘they’ are taking over. Few of
them can spell ‘Islamisation’. Some Jews are calling for Muslims to be eradicated physically. Years ago, it was
the Red Menace.
May wants to close down any mosque or cultural centre that is found to preach anything remotely radical. In other words, places
of worship where criticism of the American-led West is included in the Friday sermons. How radical!
I know of no Muslim who claims to
have been radicalised nor any that uses the term. I know a few who have been converted to Islam but this is always because
other Muslims have displayed something of the divine. It is an increasingly popular religion in times of money-obsession and
materialistic aspiration. Everyone wants to go on the X-Factor as a quick way to get their hands on a personal fortune. Secular
greed as preached by the mainstream media. You can’t get more extreme than that, Theresa.
I know the terms radicalised and
extremist are aimed primarily at British Muslims but they can be turned on anyone of other belief systems.
Neo-Nazis are extreme, of course.
Anyone who preaches racial supremacy is an extremist. They are also unreasonable for a start. Preaching hatred towards another
race is unacceptable. But picking on British Muslims because they feel their brothers (the Ummah) in other parts of the world
are being oppressed is also unreasonable. I am talking about the Palestinians, the Iraqis and the Afghans. The inhuman treatment
of the Muslim Rohingya people desperate to escape persecution in Burma would make any Muslim’s blood boil. Allowing
them to suffer at sea is incomprehensible.
I would say to the Home Secretary, look at the root causes of ‘radicalisation’
and try to understand. Tell the inept Defence Secretary Philip Hammond to call back all our troops and make them do something
useful for a change. A good start.
Editorial ESA No 54 -
WHY IS AMERICA SOFT ON ‘ISLAMIC’ STATE?
American air strikes have proven
futile in terms of halting the mercenary terrorist group going under the moniker of Islamic State. Why? Because the Americans
do not really want to halt Islamic State or ISIS, the acronym to which it is referred.
I will cut to the chase. Like Al-Qa’eda, Islamic
State is an invention of the CIA and other intelligence agencies. Terrorists run by the CIA are not new. They were used in
Libya and elsewhere. The Americans used Osama bin Laden as a CIA operative in Afghanistan when pushing out the Russians.
They say Islamic State is financially
supported by Qatar and one or two other despotic Arab states. In fact, a few wealthy people in Qatar partly bankroll it but
the real control comes from the United States. They set it up in the first place as part of the opposition to President Assad
threat of Islamic terror is a lie from the very beginning and it is at the heart of the United States agenda of conquest and
perpetual war ... war without end.
Britain and other countries in the European Union are little more than occupied states, press-ganged
into a military/political alliance called NATO. In fact, NATO has become the military wing of an American-led Europe, right
up the borders of Turkey and Syria.
We are all under the cosh from a foreign super power that is driven by a desire to enslave
every country in the world ... the final and complete Americanisation of the globe.
The elite that runs the United States wants control
of every drop of oil on the planet because it is the life blood of the American Empire. This has been proven time and again.
They pretend to wage war against
evil. This is the greatest irony. The fact is, the United States uses evil in order to pursue American interests.
All the jihadist groups with titles
like Islamic State, ISIS, Al-Qa’eda and Al-Nusra are not only creations of the CIA but they are used and manipulated
by the United States in order to de-stabilise states of which they disapprove.
Up to the border with Russia, the CIA created false
flag destabilisation in Ukraine by setting up a violent and armed neo-Nazi opposition to a democratically elected president
there. They tried to blame the shooting down of flight MH-17 over East Ukraine on the Russians. That was before an investigation
had even began. It was a CIA false flag operation.
The American imperialists supported the brutal attack on Gaza, blaming Hamas. The murder
of three Israelis teenagers was blamed on them. It cost the lives of over 2,000 Palestinians. The United States said nothing.
the Americans have been involved in regime change (illegal under international law) the subsequent chaos is perpetuated. Not
one of these states has been rebuilt as a stable democracy. That’s the last thing the Americans want.
They know there is no such thing
as democracy. The political and financial elite in America is the very antithesis of rule by all the people. It is the rule
of wealth and of power.
beheading of a few Americans and British by Islamic State is used by the United States as an alibi for massive military intervention
in Syria and Iraq. Before these recent beheadings, Syrians were beheaded on a regular basis by the same terrorist groups for
years, openly encouraged by the anti-Assad West. The media was very silent about it then.
The reason Islamic State is not being pushed back
is because the Americans do not want their own terrorist foot-soldiers stopped. They want to use them to not only topple Syria
but to go further towards Iran later. Terrorists and death squads now replace American boots on the ground.
The worst thing about all
this is that the masses of the people believe the distorted version in their papers and on TV. The awful truth is that the
United States and our government only pretend to wage war on evil because it is an evil that they created themselves in order
to bring more misery upon the world.
